Very logical.

This novel is about coming of age as someone really really unsuited to magic whose parents are both mages!

Huh.

There is a lot of incidental social pressure to Be A Mage Anyway but through the metaphorical magic of self-actualization and people who care about him he chooses not to unwisely tie his brain in knots!

Good for him!

That does seem to be the moral of the story.

Yes.

Intro chemistry! They are currently doing stoichiometry, with no context for what chemicals are.

Well that makes for a fascinating lesson.

He will know the names of several elements and compounds and how the latter are made up of the former with no explanation of what either actually are!

Permalink

So many things to look up later!

And next he has a class on how magic fucks with your brain!

Odette is there!

Permalink

Yes she is!

She waves him over.

He sits by her.

"I'm learning so much!"

"What've you learned so far?"

Permalink

"History! Literature! Magic! Science!"

Permalink

"All good things! Here you will learn psychology, which is kind of confusing! I will try to provide context for things."

Permalink

"Thank you!"

It proceeds to be a psychology class. They are discussing an inconclusive study regarding the relative mental effects at varying levels of resistance; the study suggests that recklessness frequently results from really high resistances that brings the total effect on one's mental state closer to baseline than most people with merely moderate resistances.

It's fascinating that there is a science for this. There's a science for everything! It's a science fantasy universe!

Permalink

It's really cool how enthusiastic he is about science! Sometimes someone references a different study and Odette summarizes it under her breath for Milan.

Permalink

Science!!!!!

Permalink

Eeee! His enthusiasm is contagious!

Eee.
