With great power...

Jen struggled to take Professor Wright seriously. He didn’t seem to have much self-belief, and she wondered how she was supposed to have faith in him when he couldn’t do that himself. Still his classes had so far been informative and not too taxing so she wasn’t complaining loudly. Or at all, in fact, as she made notes on the class and the homework assignment, and then joined the other students in beginning the practical aspect of the lesson. She scraped her chair legs back against the floor, pushing on the desk for leverage and causing that to shift forward half an inch, too. The tattered hems of her wide-bottomed jeans dragged across the floor as Jen trudged, shoulders hunched, to retrieve one of the wooden boxes. She took it back to her desk and stared at it for a bit.

The whole concept of magical locking and unlocking was odd, which the professor had sort of drawn attention to but not properly explained. Like, a witch could lock something with magic to keep Muggles out, and maybe could unlock non-magical fastenings with a spell, so those were suitable uses for the spells. It was just when both locking and unlocking spells were presented together, as they just had been, they did give the impression of making each other redundant. Also if magic Muggle safes redundant; a witch or wizard could just break right in, right? A catchphrase about power and responsibility drifted through Jen’s mind as she shook herself from her stupor of moral conflict and looked at the person next to her. “Partners?”

              It was sort of reassuring that Connor had the same ideas about the homework assignment, but at the same time disappointing; if he’d have had an alternative viewpoint then it would have given Jen... more
