on a lark

She combs and combs the world aside and there is another world, just ahead, and she steps in.

The combed-away hole closes behind her. She puts her comb in her pocket.

"Moderately. But I did order a book on how to make artifacts. Would you like one?"

"This should be fun," she says cheerfully. "Let's just see..." She starts reading the section on the Amulet of the True Form. "Oh, that's nice, it has safety features so it won't do things like turn a sea serpent back into a sea serpent while they're still on land, or an earth pony back into an earth pony while they're flying around as a bird..." Pageturn. "And it looks like it won't be too difficult to cast. I just need a necklace to cast it on. Do you have one you don't mind using? If not, I'm sure we can find one."

"No problem, I can go find one," Blueberry assures her. "Would you like to come with me, or stay in the library?"

"Okay. Have fun!"

Off trots Blueberry.

About fifteen minutes later, Blueberry comes back floating a little jewelry box. She sets it down within reach of Emily.

"See if you like any of those," she says. "I wouldn't mind giving them up to be amulets."

There are a variety of interesting pendants inside, all sized to be worn by little ponies and therefore more or less basically wearable by a medium-sized human. Some of them would actually be a bit big on Emily.

"All right," says Blueberry. "I'll just read over the spell a few more times to be sure I've got it right."

She pores over the relevant section of the artifacts book.

"There," she says, when she's read the whole section through twice more. "All set. Goodness that spell is complicated. Just set your necklace down on the floor, please, and I'll cast the spell on it."
or_coincidence: (⑩ my power)

Blueberry trots across the floor to stand over the necklace, and lowers her horn, and concentrates very hard on casting the spell. Artifact creation is difficult in nearly every way a spell can be difficult - oomph, complexity, demand for precision - but this is a relatively simple artifact as these things go, and it's well within her reach as long as she... tries... very... hard.

And there.

The new amulet flashes once with pale blue light, and then settles down to a barely-there shimmer. "Oof," says Blueberry. "That was hard. All done! Enjoy your new amulet!"

"It only works when you put it on, and even then it waits to turn you into your true form until it would be reasonably safe and comfortable for you to be your true form right then," says Blueberry.
or_coincidence: (⑦ you may hug me)

"Like not falling out of the sky, or not being a sea serpent on land, or not being a dragon underwater."

"Well, I guess either that's your true form or your true form is something that has trouble moving around on land or doesn't breathe air or is too big to fit in the library," says Blueberry.
