They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. ~Edgar Allan Poe
Jahx Unless the dreaming is done in my classroom, in which case, the only thing they who dream by day will be cognizant of is detention.
Nathan Wow! You’re tough!
Jahx Nothing like! An inattentive magicker is a problem to society in training.
Nathan As I told your little wife many a time. Did she listen? Nooooo.
Arinda I did, too! And what do you mean ‘little wife’, you big buffoon!
Nathan Nothing in magic-training is as important as focus. If you’re not focused, you can’t control your magick, and you are a menace to society.
Arinda Oh lord, there he goes again. Thanks a lot, Jahx.
Jahx What did I do?
Nathan If you can’t control a spell you shouldn’t be casting it!
Arinda Now you’ve got him going and we’re to be treated to a four hour lecture on the importance of focus and controlcourtesy of Nathan. So again, thanks a lot!
Nathan Lecture, nothing! How can you teach it if you don’t understand it?
Arinda I do have my Magicker Mastership, Nathan.
Nathan By the skin of your teeth!
Arinda If by the skin of my teeth you mean the highest score ever on both my novitial term and Mastership exams, then yes, I suppose it was.
Nathan Mere technical details!
