"I'm doing very well," said Herta.  "I started dating someone, and that's always good, but we're both trying to figure out what we're doing, and that's... well, we'll work it out, somehow."

"Already?" Jill asked in surprise. "No, that was rude of me. Sorry, I was just surprised.

"Well, I don't know if it will last forever," said Herta, "but I did want to try.  Am I doing this incorrectly for the customs here?"

"Myra is a fire spirit of some kind," said Herta.  "She's not quite sure how she came to be incarnate in a human form.  Actually, Emma, we were hoping you might have some ideas.  Um, she's charming, kind and curious.  And pretty."

"Hmm. That does sound unusual. I certainly haven't heard of that before. Can I meet her?" Emma asked.

"Thank you," said Herta.  "We're all curious as to her nature, since she's not clear on it herself."

"Spirits taking on flesh isn't something I've heard of," Emma said. "It'll probably take some deep diving in the library or something."

"A change of pace from the deep diving we'll do in this class, then," said Herta.  "With similar goals, however-- knowledge."

Herta sat up and paid attention.  This class, of all, she wanted to do well in.

"Today class, we'll start with a discussion on ectoplasm," Ms. Specter said. "This will be on the next exam, so I expect you to take notes.

The lecture was on the basics of ectoplasm, what it is, what is made of it, and what magic effects it and what doesn't.

While this material wasn't entirely new to Herta, she took notes nevertheless, and there was more to learn here, certainly.

"Now then. Miss. Herta, what is one material that can block ectoplasm from passing over it?" Ms. Specter asked.

"Pitchblende, if pure enough," said Herta.  "Its unstable nature and internal heat are disruptive to ectoplasm."

"Very good," Ms. Specter said as she went around the room getting other answers from the class. "Any questions on the material we covered today?"

"One, Mistress," said Herta.  "Can ectoplasm be used to form physical bodies for spirits, on a permanent basis?"

"No, only spirits of the dead are made from ectoplasm, and they don't get a second chance like that," Ms. Specter said.

Herta nodded.  That's what she'd assumed, but she'd been mostly guessing.

Well, that had gone by quickly enough.  At least no one had tried attacking her or her classwork, and she could go toher next class.
