"You want to create an entire school of magic, by yourself ?" Archmage Mylna was looking in disbelief at her pupil. Eloine definitely was the boldest, but she was far from her most promising student.
"Yes, there's so much unexplored potential there." continued Eloine unfazed. "But most mages just consider it 'illusion'. It would be a shame to keep it that way."
"I see what you mean. And what would you need for this project ?"
"Just official recognition as founder, and a permanent lab. And a few assistants." Eloine paused. "Also a grant from the academy."
"Very well. That will be arranged."
The two sat up and shook on it. Eloine was getting ready to leave.
"And what would you call this new school, Eloine ?"
"Oh, I was thinking about Menomancy. Seemed fitting."
After sending Eloine on her way, Mylna sat down at her desk. She picked up a quill and a blank sheet of paper.
There was a grant request she couldn't not write.
Recognizing the effects, but not able to do anything about it, she couldn't help but chuckle. Eloine had a bright future.
