The council chamber, with its stained-glass image of 'Archchancel or Sloman Discovering the Special Theory of Slood', was always nice and warm and there was a distant prospect of tea and chocolate biscuits at half-past three.

Pointy hats nodded as the agenda was demolished with due mendacity and sleepy prevarication. As the biscuit hour approached, Archchancel or Mustrum Ridcul y drummed his fingers on the battered leather of the table. Possibly we have annoyed him in some way, committed some little faux pas -" "This is about Mayhap Street, isn't it? I am assured the rest of the continuum wil catch up with it no later than Thursday.

It was an accident that was waiting to happen. He was clearly enjoying himself. We are going to move on and put this behind us! See to it," said Ridcul y. He turned his attention once again to the ominous Manila folder in front of him.

His job, I suspect, is to drag us kicking and no doubt screamin' into the Century of the Fruitbat. This should be fun," said the Dean. Ridcul y slid the folder to his right. As you know, the city has always waived al taxes on the university I fear we are past the time when a little shape-changing or a couple of firebal s would do the trick. That is not the modern spirit. It would be a good idea to at least examine Mr Pessimal's suggestions It would at least pass the time until the tea turned up.

We are the premier col ege of magic! As such? If they run into any problems, my door is always metaphorical y open. Good grief, you don't want 'em just turning up. And have you been doing more of it in the past six months than in the previous six?

Six copies," said Ridcul y. You can count the tables a carpenter makes, but what kind of rule could measure the amount of thought necessary to define the essence of tableosity? The amount of thought that has gone into it is astonishing! Those 67 pages have been hard won, I can tel you!

Or maybe chess. It was for having written," said the Archchancel or. Braseneck Col ege, indeed! It used to be the Braseneck School of Conjuring! He notes that Braseneck gives al new students a free crystal bal and a voucher for a free frog or frog-like creature. Remember Dean Rouster? He used to set traps to stop students attending his lectures! T1 tap talent from al backgrounds,' he used to say, 'but a lad who can't spot a tripwire is no good to me!

You see, trying to be nice to students means you end up with courses like comparative fretwork and graduates who think 'thank you' is one word and can look at a sign sayin' 'Human Resources Department' without detecting a whiff of brimstone. We'd never manage it. If they were clever already, they wouldn't need to go to university!

No, we'l stick to an intake of per cent young fools, thank you. Bring 'em in stupid, send them away clever, that's the UU way! That's how the Dean got where he is today! Careful y directed ignorance is the key to al knowledge. Good idea," said Ridcul y, a gleam in his eye.

Oh, I can see what he's getting at, but, you see, we're a university, Mr Stibbons, not a bandage. We can't just wave a magic wand and make everything better! Ridcul y waved a hand irritably. Except, of course, that making everything better by magic only makes things much, much worse. What we do, gentlemen, is dynamical y refrain from using magic.

Just imagine what we could do if we turned our I'm only surprised that he's not asking us to do so. I was turned into something miscel aneous at least once a week in my first year, and it never did me any harm. Anything else? He winked. They relaxed. No, perhaps the year after next. Yes, that might be better. You can't hurry urgency, I've always said so.
