Things were still weird on the island, but it was all slowly tapering back into the realms of normal. Well, normal for the island. Sazz always made a point of keeping an ear to the ground for interesting rumors cropping up. The circuit was sort of dry though. He was getting restless, and a bit bored. Worst off, it was starting to show. Sazz found one outlet in pursuing his magic ambitions.

He wasn't doing this alone though, it would be boring if he did it alone. So what else was there to do but call in his favorite witch, Wednesday to maybe help him out a bit. They had a decent enough time at the masquerade. Enough that since then Sazz began to bug her just a bit more than he had before. She was shy, but fun.

He sat in the library with several thick magic books humming idly as he waited for her to show.

Naturally, being the little magic overachiever that she was, Wednesday came prepared.

Her backpack had a few tomes from her own collection stuffed into them, and she carried another under her arms along with her notebook as she walked into the library, Frodo trotting happily behind her.

Even if it weren't for her natural inclination to help out, or her desires for magical knowledge, she was mainly here because it was him asking. The Masquerade had gone much better than she'd expected, and she was more than starting to feel comfortable around him. She didn't even feel the need to plan out much ahead before arriving.

Dear lord, hanging out with him was starting to feel normal. It's a christmas miracle.

"Afternoon, Sazz." She said with a small smile as she sat across from him, setting her own things down as her cat hopped up onto the table, curling up and making himself comfortable.

"So, I guess before we begin, you mind giving me the rundown on what you're trying to do here one more time?"

"Well I found some new ways to do some spellcasty stuff. I'm trying to sort it out before I apply it to anything," he seemed to perk up as she approached. He gave Frodo a couple scritches behind his ears before focusing back on Wednesday. She was probably more eager to try cracking this magic than him. That said, he figured she was someone reasonably trustworthy with this new magic.

"You seem like you're doing well today," he smiled as he slid some of his notes over to her. They looked strange, and almost nonsensical, but they seemed to be connected in their own way.

"I'd have an easier time sorting things out if you're handwriting was neater..." Her lips pulled tight and brows furrowed, distracted for a moment as she read over the notes. She opened her own notebook and started to scribble on the page, transcribing the notes into something that was easier for herself to understand.

"Anyway, I uh...I guess I am. yeah." She continued, finally looking back up at him and flashing a small smile. "I got all my classwork done early and I got some time to relax so, uh, yeah. No reason to complain."

Her eyes flicked back to the notes as she kept writing.

"How about you?" She asked.

"First of all, my handwriting is average at best. Probably. Okay I was kinda excited," he admitted. He started twirling a pen in his hand as he continued. "I met an interesting person. Called herself Tuesday, and she said she was kinda like your big sister. She also said she'd beat me up if I hurt you. Like I'd do that..."

"Either way it was a nice little conversation at any rate. She was pretty cool. "

"Oh! You met Tuesday?" She seemed to perk up right away at the mention of her sister witch, happy smile on her face. "Yeah, she's a member of our coven."

She put her pen down, pausing her transcription for a moment.

"She's kind of like, well, the coolest person I know." She admitted, rubbing the back of her neck. "She was a big help in getting used to living here. I know I'm um, pretty sheltered, but it was a lot worse before we started hanging out. She's really smart and confident and I dunno what I would do without her..."

It was at this point she realised she was gushing massively, she blushed her usual dark green colour and returned her attention to the notes, trying to play it off cool.

"Anyway," She cleared her throat before continuing. "I'm glad you two got along."

Sazz just sat back and let Wednesday talk about Tuesday. It was a bit amusing to say the least. She usually didn't get this excited about something unless it was magic related. It did make him a bit curious though. How much worse was she when she first arrived then?

"Look at you nerding out like a dweeb over your big sis," he said after a moment. "It's cute, and I won't tell anyone so no worries."

She frowned, eyebrow twitching and eyes narrowing.

"Hush, you."

Her pen scribbled along the page for a little bit longer, and soon she's finished. She takes a moment to reread Sazz's notes in her own handwriting, humming and murmuring inaudibly under her breath, brow furrowed. She doesn't speak up again until she's finished.

"Well the theory seems...pretty sound, actually. A little unstable for my tastes, but, well, that's kind of the nature of chaos magic."

She tapped her pen against the paper, thinking.

"Have you taken this to the practical stage yet?"

Sazz was pleased at what he was hearing. The theory seemed sound but unstable. That was more or less his conclusion regarding the magic as well. That's just how this type of magic went. In some ways chaos magic had a similar element of danger as necromancy. If a spell rebounded it could do some really bad damage.

"Well, no I haven't yet. I just wanted to be sure first before I proceeded. I wasn't quite sure how trustworthy the book that I found it in was. You're one of the few non faculty members I'd trust to go over this with too so... you know."

"Well, I'm uh, flattered. But the staff would probably be able to advise you better, I'm no expert you know. I guess they wouldn't approve of something so risky though..."

Her lips pulled tight as she considered, scanning over the page once more. The danger was obvious, any novice mage would be able to tell you that just from the type of magic. There were ways to make it more in your favour, but it was always a dice roll.

Wednesday hated dice rolls.

But, she was an academic at heart. Judging from what she was ready Sazz could probably wield this magic, and she was very curious to see how it worked in action.

"Hmm...do you want to try it?"
