The Sixth Page: [V i d e o]

[As promised to a certain Pirate Captain, Hermione is hard at work, attempting to carve a reasonable wand shape from a hunk of wood. Needless to say, it isn't easy work. She keeps breaking twigs and cutting her fingers on the splintered edges.]

Oh bollocks... [Bringing a cut finger to her lips, she suppresses a frustrated sigh.] I've never heard of a wood carving spell, but after working with this, I'm almost positive one exists. Otherwise wand-makers would be covered in splinters.

[To make matters worsemore interesting, she has no clue what to choose for a core. It's not like unicorns, phoenixes or dragons were -

Her eyes widen. There is a dragon in the village. But asking him for a heart-string would be awful.

Though if he were willing to part with a scale, she might be able to work with that...]


How does one ask a dragon for a scale?

"... Well, I've got some experience with carving, I made my own staff and blasting rod, if you want some pointers on carving without hurting yourself. For starters, you definitely want a pair of gloves.

And as for the dragon... safer to just get one from home. Do a Malnosso mission, maybe. Draco's friendly, but I don't think he's that friendly."

"Well, there's a few really important points. First off, you need a good, sturdy knife. Second of all, hold it with a vise, not your hand. Third, work slowly and cut with the grain, or the wood will snap."

I stopped for a moment. I had found a book from her own world during my brief bout of amnesia, but I couldn't remember too much about wands.

"Is it possible that you could substitute some other material with inherent magical properties? Because, hey, I've found a few things in the item shop and even the grocery store. I'm keeping them as potion ingredients right now."

...Very carefully, I suspect. [ at least, that's how she'd ask. ] Maybe butter him up first with some compliments.

I guess that depends on why you want it. And how polite the dragon is.

We think that would depend entirely upon the dragon in question. Not all dragons make pleasant company. In fact, most do not.

However, it may be possible that thou couldst find a scale that has been previously discarded.

'tis better to do such things by hand for the most part. The energy expenditure is more favorable to working manually, unless you're in a particular hurry or the work is particularly fine.

And it depends upon the type of dragon.

You're making a wand? [ Helios sounds mighty curious at that. ]

As for dragon scales...there's a few of them here. But I'm not sure how readily they'd give you one. [ He frowns, looking at Luminair on his end. ]

[Teddy's first thought, one that makes him unable to answer for a long moment, is oh god, it's Hermione Granger and she's making a wand.

But when he does respond, he... tries not to sound too lame.]


... I'd probably start with asking politely.
