This is a cute little ficlet, ending in something that has been my bane: "How do I teach something when they don't get it?" Thanks for posting it!

Interesting new twist on spell creation and I like the explanations and ties to science. Thanks for posting.

It interesting that Harry would lecture to Hermione, But at the same time I wonder if it would hurt Harry's friendship with Hermione. Hermione is considered one of the smartest witches in her year and maybe for an long time, I would think that it would hurt her pride that Harry could have learn something that she can't. Sometime proud could end a friendship.

Spell Mongers bludgeon, bang, anneal, cajole, forge, shear, and render the material of the universe to their will

Fantastic language you've employed here! Thanks ~

LOL! The death of Microsoft caught my attention more then any other bit. Hermione just didn't seem to be in character, she acted more like a pureblood who had been indoctrinated into believing something since the cradle. Just wasn't the behavior I'd expect of a muggle born witch.

I really like this. A good representation of an indepth conversation between Harry and Hermione about something Harry knows more about than Hermione does. Not the usual setup. Thanks for writing. pms

I'm still almost as confused as Hermione after reading this. But I guess that's understandable since Harry has only just discovered the journal in the real story. What baffles me the most is the 'profit aspect' of spell mongering, as it's called here. Why has the spell to be sold? Does it have to? Can it only be used by people who bought the spell?
I suppose these questions will all be answered in due time during the course of the story, but it still leaves me wondering right now...
Hope you'll finish another chapter soon!

Nice little snippet, not to mention a preview of what is to come in the Paladin universe. Thanks!

Thanks my friend.

Nice! KutGW!

Aaran St Vines replied:

Thanks for your kind words and for reading.

Er, what does KutGW mean?  I don't leetspeak.  I even feel odd using the word
 using the word 'leetspeak.'

Ohhh - cool! Spell Mongering... I like that! Taking matter "out of thin air" and create what you want or need is definitely a neat ability. Love these palatin drabbles.

Thanks!

Quantum Physics has become a hobby reading subject for me recently.  Weird, I know.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Just noticed the 3 Explanations to your world, and found them facinating. Perfect for killing time while I wait for the next installment of Great Scot!

The mix of magic and technology in particular stood out for me.

The Muggle governments of the world combined forces to bomb old Redmond, Washington, USA off the face of the globe in 2038, five months after Windows 2035 shipped



Oh and I loved that bit about the world blowing up Redmond!!!

Aaran St Vines replied:

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

I find the idea of the core science behind magic and physics a fascinating concept I am enjoying exploring.

I have changed this short to mention that the bombing of Redmond idea is very loosely based on a small segment from a book based on the Val Kilmer movie, "Red Planet."  The bombing did not occur in the movie, but Peter Telep wrote a book of the same title released at the time of the movie.  A similar idea was broached in the book.


Cheers.

Very interesting.

Is the word 'monger' used as a verb a common British usage?

If it weren't for your NSNS status, I'd be having some rather different expectations about 'Paladin visits'. ;-)

Aaran St Vines replied:

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

I have heard since writing about this that an iron monger in Great Britain is a hardware store in US-Speak.  Monger is not a complimentary word, and that is the point.  The word has been trashed in Muggle and magical vocabularies to besmirch Spell Mongery.

Very nice tying in of magic and technology. I keep wondering what would/will happen when some bright wizard/witch with a muggle background decides to try combining the two.

Aaran St Vines replied:

In roughly chapter ten or eleven, Harry will explain in some detail about physics and magic as he understands it regarding Spell Mongering.  I can't wait to write it.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

very good, i was afraid it would turn into hermione bashing, but it couldn't be farther than that :-)
enjoying your universe a lot.

I am working close to twelve hours a day, but in the real world mostly.
