Summary

Sometime after Potion, Pascal decides to visit the library for the first time in search of forte-piano music; she hasn't played since becoming an animal. Fox leads her to the music section, where she pulls out a dozen volumes of music.

She asks Fox if she can do research about the court mystic IWP. He's a mystery, as he's been here a while and still appears human. She rejects the idea that he was once a woman, as his jokes are too wild. He recently cast a spell on her, turning everything she touched into itching powder, making her lose her clothes, two of her morph rings, and several other personal belongings.

Fox notices that she seems to have shrunk in size, and Pascal feels that her morph ring must have made her smaller, because her excitement over the music made her feel like a kid. She also shows off her robes, which fit all sizes, not just for when she shrinks, but to keep her quills from sticking. She also shows off her mundane coloring, which Fox compliments. She smiles and suggests stopping by more often.

Two weeks later, Fox listens to her first performance at the Deaf Mule.
