Not so much as a flicker of supernatural activity on the home front today. Or at least, nothing demonic. (That "coven" of witches stayed up in the schoolyard naked until practically six in the morning, though. Why do old people do things like that? It was bloody cold out last night. And their chanting was atrocious.)

Now I get to figure out why my sword of ultimate magical power didn't work on the bloody demon. Colour me a bit puzzled there. I mean, it worked on gods' magic, and quite easily at that. Which probably means that I got crossed with some fundamental rules of magic and am going to end up turning the pages of ye olde magick books with tweezers so they don't set my hands on fire. (Apparently, this was all the rage in protection spells back in the day. I'd take them off, but hopefully this will serve as a deterrent for anyone who's trying to steal them -- which I suppose is the point of protection spells in the first place.)

You'd think there would be perks, being as good at things as I am, not to mention talented, learned, educated, et cetera, et cetera. But no. No, for me, it's all Compendium of Magickal Theory, volumes one through sixty, in Latin.

Thanks, 'Yana.

Would gloves work, or does it have to be the tweezers?

Sadly, gloves don't work. It's a pretty sensitive spell, actually, it nearly killed the carpet. (I was kicking the book at the time, which may have contributed to this effect. So Kitty, that's where the semi-singed bit on the floor is from.) Magic doesn't like metal much unless you really make it, so tweezers are a bit safer.

Huh.

Y'know, they make these page-turning devices for paralyzed people, I read about them in a book. Wonder if one of those would work?

I'll look into that. Once I'm done trying to figure out why the laws of magic went to hell last night, that is.

I don't like mysteries.

Noted. I don't think it's bad enough to have to do any repair work for Mr. Marko, but I'll look at it closer later.

It gives the room character. Mr Marko need never know.

Assuming he's not reading this, yes.

Or maybe imaged-gloves? If I can make a sword appear in Paige's hand, I might be able to make gloves appear on Yana's hands?

Could work. Chain-mail gloves maybe, so they're metal?

Or something like metal. I do not know what my images are made of.

Might wanna start with tweezers first, then--if it doesn't work, we don't wanna burn her hands.

Assuming she's okay to experiment. :)

Maybe giant tweezers?

That would be disturbing though.

More disturbing than Blinky?

Giant tweezers with eyes and those little hairs that cells have. Cillia, I think?

From: [identity profile] x-crowdofone.livejournal.com
Okay, that's disturbing. And probably not a lot of help for turning pages. :)

Maybe Blinky need a vacation and I should torment you with tweezers.

Well, I'd be happy to experiment with someone else's hands.

But I'm not letting those doctors within ten feet of me for another few days until I need my arm checked on, and that includes for burn treatment, so I'd rather not have any burns to ignore the treatment with, if you know what I mean.

Compendium of Magickal Theory? Okay, you've got _my_ sympathy.

If you need them, I've got a pair of gloves that are counterspelled to let you read the protected stuff. Seeing how one of us needs to be doing something, and I'm not in the shape for it.

If I read the journals correctly, your sword cuts through magic? Maybe the demon wasn't using magic.
