Hi everyone! Hannah here, to let you know that this episode comes with a brief promo for a show we really like. Wizard Seeking Wizard is a dating show! For wizards! Come meet some lonely magical hearts as they try to find love, friendship, or rivalry, and then vote on who you’d like to see together! If you like our show, we think you’ll like this one too, so stick around after the episode to hear more. In the meantime, let’s go check on our own wizard, shall we?
Footsteps in grass. Crickets in the distance.
You’re going to get in trouble!
(annoyed, he’s definitely brought it up before)
I am aware of the risks, Meltyre.
But—but if they catch you, you’re gonna get kicked out of the order!
You realize you just said the same thing two different ways?
Zara, I—I know you love magic just as much as I do, you can’t risk this!
Less of a risk and more of an itch, wiz kid.
If I don’t blow off steam now, I’ll lose control in front of like… Professor Althette or something. Now, scram!
Footsteps pick up.
At least let me stand watch or—
Well… Well, I- I don’t want you to get kicked out! You’re… really good at wizardry.
And…you’re the only… person who… talks to me.
Footsteps start up again.
You know we aren’t friends, right?
This is far enough.
Are you sure?
Are you gonna complain or stand watch?
Crickets in the distance.
Magical hum, Zara takes a breath.
There you are.
A whoosh of flame.
You know, sometimes?
It’s really good to stretch.
Magical fire whooshes loudly, crackling. Eventually, it dies down, but crackling continues.
(takes a breath)
That’s probably all that’s safe for now.
That was incredible!
It’s nothing special for me.
Footsteps as they start moving back.
Do you think you’re a sorcerer because you’re a tiefling?
I don’t know. I don’t really care.
What’s it… feel like? Wild magic?
In the moment?
(soft, pleased exhale)
Feels like the only thing that matters.
(pause, normal tone)
You know that if you speak a word of this to anyone, I’ll roast you alive.
Oh yeah, I know.
Footsteps continue and fade away.
Theme song fades in and begins to play.

Theme song continues, spikes then fades away.
Pleasant synth music plays in the background.
Alright, Cupid are we recording?
Good! Hail listener, it is I, Chemistro the Match Mage, coming to you from the depths of the crystal sphere where I have been imprisoned. The eons are long here and to stay sane I have put out the call to wizards across the multiverse. Wizards that want to meet other wizards!
Rising Synth Sparkle!
I seek, first and foremost, some person who might challenge me in organization.
I would just love to sit down and talk about dark magic over a cup of coffee, or a cup of evil! Which is a beverage I invented, mostly made of coffee
Yes, I did a long stint in the sultan’s dungeons for orchestrating a plot against his life. But that is my wont, as a vizier
You see I think the, the teeth, are sort of, the the window to the soul!
