THEN: Arthur made a brilliant discovery.

AND THEN: Arthur had tried to make toast. Literally, produce toast, on a plate. No matter how hard he tried, screwing up his face like someone trying to remember an answer in Trivial Pursuit, he couldn't even create a crumb. However, he could put bread in the toaster and have it come out as perfect toast, even after he noticed the toaster wasn't plugged in.

NOW: Arthur is in the Bar. Well, sort of. The Bar, on the basis that she isn't stupid, has put him in a little side room with tiled walls and floor. There are a number of objects in the room. Right now, Arthur is looking at a piece of bread very hard.

"Abracadabra!"

The bread explodes into croutons.

"...Oh dear."

There's a pile of similarly dispatched bread in a bowl next to him. The squid might like it, later on.

"Yep," says Matilda. "Are you okay? You didn't freeze your fingers, did you?"

"...How did you get stuck to the side of an airplane?" she wonders as she summons another popsicle stick. This time the ice that forms around it is appropriately pink, but she gives it a critical look and shakes her head. "I don't think it's right."

missnicegirl: Calm. (ζ total serenity)
From: [personal profile] missnicegirl
"I'm not sure," she says. "Want to try it? It's probably not toxic."

"That explains the colour, too," she says, looking pleased. "Here, I'll try again."

The next popsicle she creates is the same shade of pink as the first—a little too light and not purple enough for unadulterated raspberry—and when she tries it, it is indeed raspberry-banana. Emphasis on the banana.

"That's a really weird way for a spell to go wrong," she says thoughtfully. "But at least it's a tasty one!"

missnicegirl: Smirking quasi-innocently. (ε I had nothing to do with this)
From: [personal profile] missnicegirl
"Well, now I know I can conjure popsicles," says Matilda. "So it's possible to conjure toast. We just need to figure out how."

But her first priority is eating the rest of her banana-raspberry popsicle.

"Well... anything," she says, shrugging. "How about cake?"

Date: 2012-05-02 11:56 pm (UTC)
missnicegirl: Smiling or smirking. (γ c'mere spoon!)
From: [personal profile] missnicegirl
"I... have made cake!" says Matilda, because she is a fundamentally honest person. "Not as often as I've made toast. But more often than I've made popsicles."

"Pancakes are a good idea," she decides. "But they need plates. You've got plates, right?"

"I have no idea," Matilda says cheerfully.

She gives the plates a considering look.

missnicegirl: Grinning hugely. (α because of cookies)
From: [personal profile] missnicegirl
"Sounds like a plan," she decides. "Let's try it."

Matilda beckons some flour onto her own plate; it forms a smallish pile. She watches it for a moment. Nothing happens.

"Maybe not."

missnicegirl: Gazing intently at a Cheerio from close range. (κ concentrating)
From: [personal profile] missnicegirl
"Hmm," says Matilda.

She frowns at her flour and tries to remember back to when making a glass fall over was her single all-encompassing ambition.

Be pancakes, she thinks. Pancakes pancakes pancakes pancakes pancakes. Please be pancakes. C'mon, be pancakes, be pancakes...

Nothing continues to happen. But she can give it time.

"I don't think there's rules," she says absently, which may not be wholly wise.
