It's been a pretty productive week so far, for Annabel * Lee.
Luna's added saltwater to her repertoire for conjurations, and finally gotten the sulfate crystal recipe to stabilize.
Diana's pushing her control of her element, in addition to keeping their combat drill up; she can make a painting on a thermal camera, as long as the painting fits in her palm, and she's getting pretty close to getting fricking laser beams, she thinks.
Clara's been doing gymnastics, and unlocked an air-dash in addition to a subtle 'perfect balance' support spell.
Sylvia has been working on finesse. She can improve in force later; now, when her growth rate is on fire, is the best time to get a toehold in everything - as Luna and Diana also noted - and so she has been conjuring detail work in variegated metals, and even trying, though not quite succeeding, to branch out into crystals.
Ophelia...She hasn't gotten the basic regeneration spell she was looking for when she looked at the 'bandages that promote healing' request. She has, instead, developed a spell that's better suited for actually increasing the functionality of healthcare professionals in a lasting way - she's developed a spell that Luna cheekily named 'Instant Nap', for the way that those cast under its soft, shadowy blanket feel holistically less sucky, suffering less unpleasant effects and emerging rejuvenated. She hasn't quite gotten the right enchanted object together to sustain that effect without her just yet, but she has some ideas percolating.
Ophelia and Luna find themselves drafting designs for another attempt at stabilizing the spell on a sleep mask, as Thursday evening rolls around. "...Really, the problem with this is that Western alchemy doesn't care much about the body, they just want gold. And Eastern alchemy is right out, because it's appropriative, dense, and involves too much mercury. Probably worth adding to the 'eventually' list, but I'm not going to rely on it now. Maybe leaning into the 'grandmotherly handicrafts' niche would work better? Or crystal woo, which - well, it would be painful to lean into epistemically, but magic is as magic does. ...And there is herblore...
"...I should pick up knitting properly. Probably try something with cotton balls; 'counting sheep' is right there and they have medical associations..."
