Rowan: Besides, even for basic powersets, lots of magical jobs have more requirements than raw strength. Holly might want to be certified for one of those.

Juniper: This is your last compulsory-ed position, right? You get to pick what you do after you “graduate” from it . . . when is that?

Holly: Uh . . . That’s also what the next exam is for.

Violet: Whoa, I didn’t realize it was that soon. Congrats!

[sniff]

Holly: I haven’t passed the thing yet!

Rowan: Oh, like it’s gonna give our little prodigy any trouble.

It can be helpful to have encouragement. I’m not sure “like it’s going to give our little prodigy any trouble” is ever the right amount of encouragement. I mean, the world’s a big, complicated place, and there’s probably some times when those are the needed words. But I always felt it was much more reassuring to be told things such as, “I know it’s a big step and a hard test, but I have confidence you’ll study enough for you and do well.”

Statements that basically said, “You won’t need to work at it,” in some form or another… I feel tempted to say they always make me nervous, but that’s not historically always been true. Which is *WHY* they make me nervous. Even when you have the capability to pass a test easily, you can still fail if you don’t take it seriously.
