Subconsciously, Edreina clenched her fist when imagining the Res forming a sphere. More quickly than she had been expecting, the Res slithered into her palm and started to whirl and roll over itself in a nearly gleeful manner. It was not a perfect sphere but instead was dominated by ever shifting golden orange terrain, little tendrils that would reach out to form a glimmering corona.

Steadying herself, the redhead's brow curved inward as she focus intently upon the wriggling mass of energy, urging it to still and calm and fold inwards on itself until it was more stable. Slowly, excruciatingly so to Edreina, it complied until a miniature, duller Syna lay in the palm of her hand. The next step was to make it hover. The instant Edreina started to think about it rising, the nimbus obeyed and moved to rest about a foot above her cupped hands. Silly girl... You wouldn't think about your arm or leg moving before you did it, you'd just do it. It must be the same with this except that the limb in control and the muscles motorizing it are invisible.

With a sigh, she looked up at Ignotus, eyes asking if she had done enough to satisfy him. Obviously, judging by his two word command, she had. But, Edreina felt a bit of confusion pull at her lips. He spoke of it as if this too were as simple as flicking her fingers. Well, he had been right about how the Res moved. She had to trust him to be right about this too.

It was a faintly glowing pale orange, turning it to fire would be-

The golden flickering disappeared and suddenly a still, glassy orb was in its place, whorling and twisting slightly in the air as Edreina tried to examine it. Is that... She attempted to turn it again but, instead, it crashed into her hand with a wet splash.

It was water! She had created water!

She had created water. Her grin quickly died as her eyes grew wide with surprise and a hint of worry. "N-now what?" This stuff had left her body. Somehow, it would have to go back, right?

Edreina's struggle to create an orb was met with the suggestion to use her hands. "Gestures can be quite helpful for focus, especially when you're just starting." he explained.

The element her Res manifested as also drew a chuckle from him. "Fitting for a Svefra, I suppose." Water was an element he had grasped relatively recently, and while he was very much enjoying it and ice, it was still very much a "new" thing for him. Still... "A very versatile element, if a little creatively demanding."

In response to her stuttering question, he responded with a vaguely amused air,"Now we go to check for any mental aberrations from the initiation, and then I need to return to my duties." Ignotus' expression soon changed back to a grave one, and his next words were quite clearly meant to be listened to in rapt attention. "Don't produce any more Res than the volume of your head, and always eat after practicing. Also, if you feel the urge to cast more, or start getting tremors, stop immediately and get yourself psych tested. It means you're overgiving and your life- along with anyone around you- is at risk."

Though he was very, very serious about his warnings, the Reimancer didn't seem to be paying any mind to the water in her hand. Or mentioning anything about putting it back inside her. This could be taken badly.

A thousand thanks to Phoenix for the gorgeous blue frame, and a thousand more to Edreina for her beautiful magic-themed one!

Either he was using made up words or she knew even less Common than she had thought. Aberrations... Silently, she examined the context of the word and this finally led her to the assumption that it meant injuries of... some sort. Mental... mind... Does he expect me to have some sort of brain injury because of this? I thought he said it was safe... Almost warily she removed herself from the thought, shaking gently as she parted her hands and simply allowed the water to fall to the ground as he had. "Psych tested..." she repeated, nodding after his warning to confirm that she had heart and understood.

Brushing her hands against one another, she rose to her feet, a bit stiff from having been on her knees for so long. The motion brought a hissed breath through her teeth as she was reminded of the cuts across her palms and how the water had ruined Ignotus's improvised bindings. Damn, they really hurt now. Abruptly she froze, realizing that Razkar would ask about the wounds. Just tell him you were making an offering to Myri, if you must. She was unsure of how he would react to Reimancy and, after seeing his reaction to Hypnotism, she was wary. She decided to keep it a secret until she was better at it or he was more open to the magical arts. "Right... Suppose I'll follow your lead then?" And she would. Despite her earlier worries, she trusted Ignotus to take her and have her cared for should there be something wrong.

Notes :
Right, so this was much too easy. I loved the amount of detail you showed in your posts Edreina, however Iggy I would have preferred for you to at least have dragged the invasion out over three posts. Initiation is not a quick or easy process, even for an expert reimancer. You described Iggy's power trip but you really only touched on it briefly. Also, since you are an expert reimancer and Master hypnotist you are going to need much more detail and effort put into the magics to start earning the big points. Enjoy the new magic Edreina. :)


If you have any comments/questions/concerns about your grade please PM me and we will work something out.

Keep on writing!
