here comes a book

There I was, innocently writing up how my heroine was packing.

Including some text books.

And I handed her one to philosophize over, and reflect on her horrible experiences in classes where she did things better than they were taught to do them. And then she packed it -- just in case --

Which means, of course, that there is going to have be a case, because I just planted a Chekhov's Gun.

I remember that she's going to acquire some students. Then the book refuses -- no, it's going to be useful to her for her wizardry, not her instructional tasks.
