Vague and grandiose chat about motivated capitalism take up the rest of the wizards' evening. Plans are made for Cam to learn about worldgates the following (skipped from school with Renée's kind accomplicehood) day and, assuming he catches on quickly enough, to go to New York and meet Jenny and talk about her operating as their business proxy.

Presently it's bedtime, and Cam goes to his room and Matilda and Jellybean go to theirs and Cam has the chance to ask Grace what on earth she meant.

"Well," Grace says, whispering, "you've been holding off on labeling because you're only fourteen, but people stabilize at different ages, don't they? And as near as I can tell you've been stable for almost a year now. Not on either, but on whichever. I think you're just as likely to get a crush on Jellybean as Matilda and vice-versa, and I don't think it's because you're still undeclared, I think you're just wired that way."

Cam considers this. "Okay," he says. "I can live with that."

"I should hope so," says Grace, and Cam laughs, and he goes to sleep.

He's still on a sleep cycle appropriate to school, so he may be up before Jellybean and Matilda in the morning.

They all troop through; the gate closes behind them.

"Time to do science!" says Matilda. Jellybean laughs.

Potatoes, it turns out, are about on the level of grass and muffins as far as higher cognition goes.

Jellybean still manages to convince his to do a cute little dance.

"So?" says Jellybean. The potato pirouettes.

Jellybean continues playing with his dancing potato.

His manual doesn't have anything specific to say about that. There are no preexisting spells to accomplish these aims.

Jellybean overhears the question and asks, "Niacin flush?"

"Huh," says Jellybean. He captures his dancing potato and starts talking to it again.

Well, that's... most of wizardry, really. The manual does its best to oblige.

Jellybean grabs a vitamin supplement.

Jellybean talks to the potato and the vitamin. Matilda consults their manual and examines her pill.

Some success is possible in that direction, although the potato is reluctant to taste like anything but potato and even more reluctant to take on any of these qualities in a genetic rather than superficial sense.

Meanwhile, Jellybean's potato is now a more vibrant shade of brown.

What Jellybean's doing with his potato is, apparently, genetic modification! That colour change is heritable.

Mostly he's just talking to it, in an entirely casual way. And he gently, casually suggests that the potato take on this or that quality... and it does, as easily as that.
