"My sweet Camille, you finally came to visit your mama~""Wha Mistress, please let go of me, we have to get out of here!""Heehee, silly girl, I'm your mama, you don't call me that~""I don't even know any Camille! Mistress, we have to go, it's dangerous!">Mistress' opinion has temporarily risen by 100"Shush now baby, you're safe with mama~"This must be another effect of the fumes, she's completely convinced I'm someone I've never even heard of. Meanwhile, the air in the hut is only growing thicker with fog. I have to get out of here before they get to my head too, but how? Mistress has me held tight in her delirious iron grip, and she isn't listening to reason at all!My name is Nadja, and as of yesterday I am the new witch apprentice to- actually, I don't know Mistress' real name yet. And technically I am not her apprentice yet until I complete the initiation rites, which are to take place during the Joining, the night after tomorrow. Though first I need to get Mistress and myself out of her poison filled house, somehow.As if the situation wasn't awkward enough, Mistress begins rubbing her cheek against mine."Oh, my sweet Camille, I've missed you so much. Tell me, did you come home for mama's delicious fried frog legs? Or maybe to show mama a new trick?"Argh, this isn't at all what I expected to deal with as an apprentice-to-be. How do I get out of this?>Try to knock her out with a punch. It's already beat up from being dragged across the floor anyway, and it would feel good. [D100 wickedness!]>Try to distract her, then slip free of her all-too-loving embrace. [D100 Elusiveness!]>Try to play along with her hallucination instead of fighting it.

>>42329660So when she goes really fast she won't slip off
Can we agree that our first priority after getting hat should be getting ability to turn into bird?
What if this whole mess is just her using headology on us?
>>42329815No, we can not.
>>42329336>>42329347I bet atleast a third here followed Callow, Chief or Hexer at some point.
>>42329815Absolutely not. Witches ride broomsticks.
>>42329937What about cat then?
>>42329951Leave that shapeshifting shit to the druids. I'll accept a familiar or just possessing whatever random animals are around.
>>42329137Of course! If you can't fight the current, ride it! And I've played this game a thousand times before, how could it not work?"Pa-"Damn it!"Mama... How can you serve your yummy frog legs without any frog legs? We need to go catch some!""Ohooh, silly girl," she chuckles while ruffling my hair, "I always keep plenty in stock, just for you!"Whoever this Camille person is, if she is anyone at all, certainly is important to Mistress! I'll have to think of something else."But... I'm bored! Let's go play outside!""Oh?" she remarks with surprise in her voice, "I thought you stopped playing games years ago, Camille?"Ack, it's harder than I thought to pretend to be someone you know nothing about!"Well, uhm...""...Yes? Speak up, girl!""I miss it! Okay? Can't we just play like in the old days, just today?""...Camille?"It's not enough! I push at her as hard as I can, just barely managing to free my head from her chest so I can give her the puppy eyes."Pweeeease?"Finally, she let's go of me."Hmhmm, like old days, then? I think I can do that, just promise to go easy on your old mama, the centuries do take their toll after all!"Free at last, I grab her hand and drag her along, much easier now that she bothers to carry herself."Sure sure, promise!"
>>42330095For the first time, the half-rotting stench of the bog actually feels welcome in my nose. With the sun making its first mark on the morning sky, the air is overflowing with activity, mainly icky insects of course, but at least the birds have begun to sing in the distance. Behind, the flow of smoke from the hut is showing no signs of letting up, even now that a third outlet has been opened.As for Mistress, her claims to be worn by time turn out to be massively exaggerated as she easily catches up with me before I even realize the nature of the game we're supposedly playing, easily lifts me high into the air and...>Mistress' opinion has returned to 5/100"Huh? What am I doi-"She looks up."New girl? Why are we playing Sparrow and- why do you even know this game? Explain immediately!"That wore off much faster than I dared to hope."Well, uh, I'm not entirely sure myself..."--"So," she begins after finally letting me back on the ground, "if I understand you correctly, you found your mistress in a vulnerable situation and decided to take advantage of that to discover her personal secrets? Correct?">"I saved you! You should be thanking me instead!">"It felt more like you took advantage of me, if I'm honest...">"I'm sorry Mistress, I only tried to help.">Write-in

>>42330769Not at all.
>>42330130I was only trying to help her, but she seems really angry, and she's the Mistress so I should probably apologize. I mean I guess I could have found a better solution so in a way it is my fault."I'm sorry Mistress, I was only trying to he-"My words are immediately drowned out by a wet smack of palm against face, my thoughts cut off by the scorching sensation erupting in my cheek."What in the hells is wrong with you, child?"Did... did I really do that bad?"I endangered your life on your first day of apprenticeship, I made a complete embarrassment of myself, and you damn well saved my life, and you dare to apologize for that?""Mistress, I...""No! You want to be a witch, girl? You want to be the force that not even an emperor can be safe from? A wielder of powers never meant for mortals?""Well, I...""Then by the moons, have some pride! Get angry! Demand retribution! Do something more than stammer helplessly!"It takes all my willpower to even look at her after that slap. I thought I had been punished before, but it suddenly becomes clear just soft papa has been with me, this sting is unlike any I've felt before. As I finally lift my gaze, I'm met with an angry glare as she stares me down expectantly. Is she serious or is this some kind of test? I am so confused...>Push her into the water!

>>42330999>I don't want no moe hereYou came to the wrong neighborhood motherfucker.
>>42331027No, seriously, of all archetypes, do we need to play moe and doing that straight-faces? There is a difference between shy lil' girl and damn moe.Especially when the witch giving the training is lewd and provocative
>>42330841>Push her into the water!
>>42330841"That I have reached for a Witch's power — is that not enough pride? And anger... When I learn to be a Witch, won't mere displeasure be enough? But right now, you are my teacher; I'd rather learn from you than be angry with you, Mistress."
>>42331096Please don't try to write dialogue. Please.
"Justice demands retribution!"
Well, I don't need to count this vote do I. Can't wait to get your hands on some actual witchcraft, huh?
>>42331059>>42330999Moe is not that narrowly defined.
>>42331197But it's submissive and shy to the point of being disfunctional most of the time.And that's hardly fun when playing as
>>42331330Moe does not mean what you think it means. Stop saying it.
>>42331387I know what it means, but I also know how it's play out. Anyway - can we please get at least SOME degree of assertivness?
>>42331436Literally everyone voted for assertiveness when Mistress called us on it. Don't worry about it.Though I think it'd be more interesting if Nadja had trouble remembering to be assertive. Make it something of a struggle.
There is important question we haven't answered yetWill we customize our hat or go with basic one?
>>42331493This is like a 13 year old trying to decide what kind of car they want. You aren't getting that hat for a while yet, kid.
>>42331436>>42331330...I should stop arguing now. The assertiveness will come soon enough on its own. This is pointless.
>>42331436That depends on circumstances.
>>42331491>Literally everyone voted for assertiveness when Mistress called us on it.Kinda sad we had to be called on it before anons realised she was doing literally the same test as in the first thread.
>>42331507We can dream anon, we can dream. >>42331493Fuck cat ears, we need dog ears in this bitch
>>42331524I think we are trying to manipulate her
>>42331524I think it's cute. It's honest.
>>42331550Anon, cat ears are clearly superior.
>>42331491It's not assertivness when you are called for it
>>42331629They're both good, but we shouldn't be putting any kind of animal ears on our head.
>>42331629Nigga you are clearly on some good shit, cat ears superior. smh
>>42331550Finding dog witch was hard
>>42331652What about setting it on fire?
Guys (and gals?), aren't you all running ahead? Like... a lot? Nadja still didn't even have her first witching lesson and you've got plans about what to do when she's a proper witch
>>42331742We are choosing what we are going to focus while training manWitch hat shows focus of witch after all
>>42331777To get witch hat you need to be a witch.Not a witch apprentice. So just to remind:>Witch Apprentice Quest
>>42330841>Demand to begin lessons immediately, no household chores, and a witch hat with cat ears. [Retribution!]Problem solved!
>>42330841"Then..."Angry, be angry. Don't cry, be angry."Then I demand we begin my lessons immediately, no household chores!"This warrants little more than a raised eyebrow from Mistress."I won't be your slave! Not yours, not anyone's!"The slight smirk forming on her face gives me the affirmation I needed, and I immediately feel the heat rushing to my head as I increase the volume."I am smart! I am strong! I will be the greatest witch ever and you have no right to refuse me! You...""You...""WITCH!"Mistress, for her part, responds with a simple nod and a calm statement that "I accept your terms, Apprentice Nadja."Casting a glance behind her, at her home and its current state, she adds, "Though I suggest we limit ourselves to verbal lessons for the day. We do still have to prepare you for your rite, but I will allow you the choice of lesson."I'm still panting heavily when she raises the question, in no way used to... expressing myself in a way like this. The excitement is so intense, I feel my eyes begin to well up, a fact Mistress is quick to notice. Instinctively I flinch as she raises her hand towards me, but instead of the punishment I expected, she softly puts her hand on my head, speaking comforting words soft."That's enough for today, little one. You'll learn in time."She gently moves her hand from the top of my head to my cheeks, wiping away the embarrassing tears. Is this... mothering?
>>42331812So you want us to be witch that tries to be great at everything?
>>42331742This is how /tg/ works.
>>42331844"Now," she promptly reasserts herself with her usual strict tone, "You do have a choice to make. We can proceed to covering the steps of your rite of initiation, but I recommend saving that for tomorrow so it's fresh in your memory.""More to my liking, we can work on introducing you to either of the three main disciplines of witchcraft. ""First, there's Herbalism, which covers identifying and gathering ingredients as well as the brewing of potions both magical and mundane. With enough skill, almost any effect can be achieve in this field.""Second, we can work on your Penmanship, so that you may soon learn to draw your first Circle and cast hexes. Hexes require a lot of work, but are potentially very powerful, and difficult to trace back to you.""Last, and I admit this is not my specialty, is Infusion, the methods by which magic is joined with various instruments of wood, you probably know these as wands or a good old broom, to bestow upon them a single, permanent magical property.""In time, we will cover all of three, but for now, I leave the choice of your first lesson to you. What will it be?">Herbalism sounds more versatile!>Penmanship seems the most useful for my goals!>Infusion would certainly be interesting!>Let's talk about my rite now.
>>42331847I'm just pointing out there is a looooooong road ahead of us
>>42331868>Herbalism sounds more versatile!Because I've been getting an Atelier vibe from this quest, so ingredient gathering and compounding sounds appropriate.
>>42331868>>Herbalism sounds more versatile!
>>42331868>Infusion would certainly be interesting!
>>42331868>Let's talk about my rite now
>>42331868>Penmanship seems the most useful for my goals!Hexes and curses a besteven if they are all in the head
>>42331868>Herbalism sounds more versatile!
>>42331868>Penmanship seems the most useful for my goals!
Mfw nobody wants to know anything about the rite and then we won't have the required goat to slain nor liver of the old drunk to properly perform it, because nobody asked.
>>42331868>Infusion would certainly be interesting!didnt we want to be a wtich to help our father? so isnt this the best chocie?
I should probably make it double clear, this choice does not lock you into any specialization, you're simply being allowed to choose your first dip into witchcraft. You get to taste them all, then much later you can specialize just like Mistress did long ago.
Didn't she want to learn witchcraft to help dad? So wouldn't Infusion or heralism the most useful to her goals, since it actually produces the most sell-able products?
>>42331868>Herbalism sounds more versatile!Gotta brew potions if you're a witch.
>>42331868>>Herbalism sounds more versatile!Best to learn how to pick ingredients early. None of this fancy stuff.
>>42331550>in this bitchOh please.
>>42331868>You said those were the three main disciplines. Does that mean there are others?You can't tell me what to do!
>>42331742>Guys (and gals?), aren't you all running ahead? Like... a lot? Nadja still didn't even have her first witching lesson and you've got plans about what to do when she's a proper witchRunning ahead is what we do.
>>42331994The goal is to subtly help Papa sell stuff without him noticing.I think.
>>42331994Not at allOur goal is to bring eternal peace by casting massive illusion over the world
>>42332108How about we finally set up some of our goals? So we all know where this is heading and what we want to achieve?IRC maybe?
>>42332108Yeah, Hexing his competition is a totally viable route.I don't want to go down that path though. It's mean. Papa should succeed because he's the best, not because we sabotaged everyone else.
>>42332108Less "without him noticing" and more "without him thinking we're doing something dishonorable". So we could do cheating things and hide it from him, or find a way to use magic that he'd approve of and let him know.
Last thread, someone wanted anime about witches and apprentices and stuff and I'm surprised nobody recommended Witch Craft Works.
>>42332174IRCs are a good way to prevent anyone from entering the quest. Really there's no reason to get too invested in any goals. This is a comfy quest.
>>42332108Papa would definitely be angry if he knew you were helping him by "cheating" and "dishonoring the craft." But how exactly you want to help him, and when, is entirely your choice, at most I'll give you suggestions.>>42332174I'd like to politely ask you not to do that. This is not one of those gigantic quests that CAN justify a separate IRC and I'd much prefer all discussion take place in the thread.---->Herbalism sounds more versatile!6 votes>Penmanship seems the most useful for my goals!2 votes (damn shame, I suppose the idea of "only" throwing curses and hexes might seem limiting at first)>Infusion would certainly be interesting!4 votes>Let's talk about my rite now.1 vote
>>42332174This isn't a planning sperg quest, this is a fun quest.
>>42331936I agree, hexes and curses are definitely the best.I was totally late for the vote though, ah well, it wouldn't have changed anything.
>>42332262Ok then, just asked. No IRC then. It's fine by me, but watching all those conflicting goals kinda triggers me, even if I've got great time just doing my part
>>42332303What conflicting goals?
>>42332330Nevermind, we are just talking bullshit right now, let's just roll with the quest
>>42332291Well we are going to learn them all, and we could still specialise in best witch magic, so it doesn't change much>>42332303We have two goals:Become a WitchHelp daddyStop sperging out over planning. This isn't PoJ or something, we don't need indepth multistage plans and goals. It's a fun little qt quest about a young girl trying to help her father.
>>42332188>Yeah, Hexing his competition is a totally viable route.An it harm none, do what you will, anon.
>>42332303The main point of conflict so far seem to be choice of hat and whether or not to grow cat ears and a tail. I trust you guys to have worked that out before you get to the point where you're so powerful you're mutating your own body just for kicks.I'll shut up and write now.
>>42332213It's not very good. The manga's art is the best thing about it.
>>42332444I'm against booze, drugs and animal ears... but fangs are ke'ai
>>42332444>>42332559Booze and recreational drugs are awesome, but we should wait at least two or three years with those. We're only 12 after all.Fuck splicers, we should remain human-looking.
>>42332429Come to think of it, assuming that 'Hexes' are basically just witch spells cast from magic circles, there's no reason that their effects have to be negative. I mean, if we could Hex people into being less dexterous or less charismatic, could we conceivably 'Hex' our father into being better at his craftsmanship or salesmanship?
>>42332722Why not simply hex him better tools?
>>42332797Because he needs to git gudder, not just his tools.>>42332722>I mean, if we could Hex people into being less dexterous or less charismatic, could we conceivably 'Hex' our father into being better at his craftsmanship or salesmanship?Support Caster confirmed? Support Caster confirmed.>>42332697>Fuck splicers, we should remain human-looking.Emphasis on /looking/, huh? BEAR WITNESS TO OUR ASCENSION
>>42332722We can probably do even better than that, first we'll just have to figure out how it works.
>>42332827Then why not make him potions that relive back ache and give energy?
>>42332878Yeah, slip beneficial potions into his meals.
>>42332878Reliving back ache doesn't sound very nice.
>>42332914Wouldn't that be exactly the kind of tricks and cheating he would be mad about?
>>42332935But then we can get him into a sneaky witch argument, like is it "cheating" if he splints an arm he breaks or something
>>42332935Just say it is medicine since it is.
We'd have to actually play the quest and get to know the situation better to understand what we need to do.
>>42332935There's a difference between making his competition suck and slipping him a potion to make sure he always sleeps well, subtle stuff like that.
>>42332827From what I understand the problem isn't the quality of Dad's work, he's better than the competition. They're just undercutting him and taking all his business. Making him more efficient so he could charge less would would help, but we need something else. Something to make his product more appealing so people are willing to go for the premium goods. It was mentioned last thread that there are a lot of adventurers who come through town, maybe we could learn to enchant Dad's work to corner the magic gear market?
>>42332975B-but we shouldn't drug Papa!
>>42333004>he's better than the competitionAccording to his little daughter, we can't be sure he actually is better.
>>42332827>Emphasis on /looking/, huh?Keeping up appearances is important.
Too bad we can't do witchy things openly. A broom would really help with all the goddamn stairs in this terrible town.
>>42333030I'm pretty sure Papa is the best smith in the world, and anyone who says otherwise is a filthy liar.
>>42333004>They're just undercutting him and taking all his business.They aren't even doing that. It was mentioned in the first thread that their quality of workmanship is worse AND their prices are higher, which means either they're doing something shady or they've got some marketing wizardry going on. Maybe even literal marketing wizardry, who knows.Or it was 100% about about reaching to make that Apple joke, but that's a little much.>>42333030This is worth considering as well, but I'd have assumed she'd think that because the father would have tried looking at the competition at least once and she would've been able to hear that from him.But also because Papa made it and he is the best, naturally.
>>42333056To be sure.>>42333030Oh please, how COULD there be anyone better?>>42333004Enchantment is a great idea, yea. Ideally something "simple" like Not!Mithril as base to work off of rather than going full-blown BURNING SWORDS OF DESTINY right off the bat.>>42332878>RelivePlease do not trigger Da's backpain flashbacks.
>>42333066Assuming that we won't have to first beat the dragon to earn our broom
>>42333070Of course, but it mjight be helpful to find out how the other guy is 'pretending' to be better, s we can help papa.
>>42333103But our sister is already beating the dragon. Is she going to come back with our broom?
>>42333117Nah, the dragon is going to get away, and then fighting it with her will be one of the event flags for her ending. Or maybe I've been playing too much Atelier Totori. One or the other.
>>42333117We're telling sis about this witchcraft business, right? I hope we get the chance to do that.I'd also like to spend time with the friends we apparently have one of these threads.
>>42331868They all seem like they could be useful, but there's just something right about potionbrewing and gathering strange herbs. It's what a witch does, everybody knows that."Herbalism! That sounds way more fun!"Mistress casts a crooked grin in response. "Fun? Your first choice of lessons is based entirely on what you think sounds more fun?">Mistress' opinion has increased by 5>Mistress' current opinion: 10/100"It is my personal favorite as well, and certainly an excellent choice for an outdoors lesson. But first, we must discuss a few of the basics of all witchcraft."With careful steps, apparently as affected by the thick and sticky ground around the bog as anyone else would be, she leads me a short distance to a spot featuring three tree stumps arranged in an almost completely even triangle."You seemed well prepared yesterday, so let's put that knowledge to the test and I'll take over, hmm? First, what is the origin of magic?"Hah! Kerstin taught me that when I told her about my plans, even though it's not something they're meant to teach in Sunday School."Magic originates from the twin moons, Mara and Vala. During the Joining, the yearly event in which the two align perfectly, they rain their blessings and punishments down on the lands!"Mistress nods slowly, seemingly satisfied with my answer. "Very good. Continuing where you left off, these... blessings, come in the shape of the sparkles, a volatile and elusive substance. Mastering the sparkles is the key to wielding magic, and as my apprentice I will provide you the tools. Of course, it is not as simple as just picking it up off the ground, as direct contact with even a single sparkle can have... very unpleasant effects. In fact, I know only of one case where a human has come out of such an encounter relatively intact."
>>42333238Oh, I know this one! Sunday School instincts kicking in, I immediately throw my right hand into the air, an act Mistress does her best to shrug off."THAT is really not necessary here. Just speak up, girl.""I know the answer! That happened to my friend Amalia and she grew the most adorable animal ears so now she can hear really well!"At that, mistress seems genuinely surprised. "You certainly keep interesting company, don't you? You are correct, however, I must stress that the girl was incredibly lucky and YOU should never, ever, risk repeating her mistake.""Now, to the main subject, there are essentially two kinds of potions we make. Magical potions include a sparkle to achive the intended effect and require great precision, nonmagical potions rely entirely on the natural properties of herbs and are much less picky about the exact quantity of ingredients. I'm sure you can guess where we will start."What follows is quite a lengthy description of many of the important plants and, occasionally, animal parts used in common potions as she leads me confidently around the woods surrounding her home, easily spotting the samples from many paces away. Her experience with this particular field is unquestionable, and I can only do my best to try to soak up all the details and how to tell the difference between a wyrmroot and simple wormroot.>Herbalism: FledglingAt the end of the lesson, the sun is already beginning to set and my stomach announcing in no uncertain terms that it is time to end the day. Tomorrow I should make sure to bring lunch, and demand a lunch break, as Mistress seems to care little for the passage of time when she is working her craft.>Say good night and head straight home.>Ask her a question before leaving (Write-in)
>>42333265I vote for eating first piece of moondust we find
>>42333265>Say good night and head straight home.
>>42333265>how to tell the difference between a wyrmroot and simple wormrootWell, duh. The difference is that one of them has a y. Seriously, Nadja, get it together. This witch stuff is easy!
>>42333174We ought to before she gets snapped by some gung-ho anti-witchcraft crusaders or other strange guys in buckets on their heads
>>42333265>Ask her a question before leaving (Write-in)>What should I prepare for the rite?
>>42333265>Ask her a question before leavingShould I bring anything from home for tomorrows ritual?
>>42333265>Ask if there's anything she can do to prepare for ritual.
>>42333265>>Say good night and head straight home.Thank her
>>42333265>Ask her a question before leaving (Write-in)>"How should I prepare for tomorrow?"
>>42333265Ask what she normally eats. I'm curious.
Hey OP what table will you use for when we will touch sparks?
>>42333291Beacuse licking the space rock has never gone wrong before.
>>42333536Don't you dare touch that spark young lady!
>>42333291Maybe we shouldn't eat it, that sounds like it would go poorly. It should be fine if we just lick it however.
>>42333536Do you dare to find out?
>>42333676Drop some on our way to find out
>>42333676I don't. I'd rather we be a responsible apprentice and listen to our teacher.
>>42333723>>42333725>>42333729>>42333752>>42333776It's like you guys have no sense of adventure
>>42333825It's like you have no sense of self-preservation.
>>42333825There's adventure and then there's "Let's jump into this fire to see what burning feels like!"
>>42333265"Mistress, before I go, is there anything I should bring in preparation for tomorrow's rite?"Instead of a straight response, she looks me up and down meticulously, seemingly weighing and measuring every last inch of me with her eyes. Finally, she speaks."Courage, as much as you can find.""Will it be dangerous?"The witch smiles that same smile from when I first met her, causing my entire body to stiffen in fear."Extremely. Good night."It isn't until a big, icky-slimy-toad jumps unto my foot that I finally regain control of my legs, proceeding with the fastest return trip from Mistress' house I would ever take. And also the loudest.I wouldn't sleep that night.THREAD TWO END
>>42333915Are sparks dangerous because they cause spontaneous combustion?If not why are they known as dangerous?How much of them will we eat to become a witch?
>>42333915Some kind of vision quest? What's the failure rate here? Is Mistress considering us a walking dead person and trying not to get attached?
>>42333915And that make for a somewhat shorter thread than I originally planned, but since it turns out that I have to get up earlier tomorrow than I thought when I decided to run two threads in two days, it's how it must be.I hope you enjoyed the thread despite that. Next one will probably not be until next weekend. Please do keep an eye on my twitter as I have a habit of moving my schedule around!
>>42333584>>42333566I still can't believe that happened to be honest.
>>42333955I think less spontaneous combustion and more "wild magic that can do all sorts of nasty things to you unpredictably". Our friend got permanently mutated by them and it's considered the nicest thing to ever happen from touching one.
>>42334009What are you talking about?
>>42334000Thanks for running? That was short... Have a good One OP
>>42334000NO. I will obsessively f5 /tg/ and get bummed when I miss the thread despite that!
>>42334000Thanks for running
>>42334000Thanks for running!
>>42334000Thanks for the thread!
>>42334000Thanks for running, FriendQM. I look forward to seeing you next week.
>>42334000Thanks for running.
>>42334000It's fine, really. I just hope the thread no. 3 will simply happen.
>>42331096Hahaha hahahaha Haha Hahaha Haha Hah
>>42332213Flying Witch is good too. Very comfycute.
Rolled 4, 3 = 7 (2d10)>>42333676Rolling Paradox.
>>42334027Pretty much, though sparks are not completely unpredictable. Under identical circumstances, they will always produce the same result. On a person, well, no person is identical so the outcome can only be predicted by something with a far greater understanding than any human could hope to attain.Now, used on simple objects, such as a water-based mixture or a shaped piece of wood, the number of factors approach something a human CAN feasibly control. That is the secrets of magic wielders, the exact method needed to create tools with desirable effects. For example, the exact shape required to make a broom that flies instead of a broom that turns to life and devours you, is something a witch might know, and something you'd definitely want to learn from her before ever attempting to make one yourself.>>42333973She did indeed try not to.
>>42333117On that subject our sister probably knows why popa's not selling stuff.
