The Writer of Magic

Calastro\'s Wooden Spoon

myself, and that was when I realized that saying things like this means Im tempting fate. Because once I thought of that sentence, a golden quest screen appeared:


Clearing Condition: Rank up in the Academy Standings to avoid expulsion!! Be at least the 800th Ranked Student. There will be bonus rewards for every hundreth rank jump.

Initial Reward: EXP, New Title, and Talent: Late Bloomer

Failure: Expulsion from the Academy

And I feel like a ton of bricks just fell on my shoulders. How the heck can I rank up if the assessment is today?!

”Hey, did you hear? This assessment will be a team exercise. Those who gets first place will automatically be placed in the Top Spots. ” The students walking towards the gym said. And I perked up, thats a great way to motivate the students.

Except I know that the Hero and his team will always be ranked one. My luck is just playing tricks on me.

Tobias King, or Toby to his friends. I created him from the ideal heroes cliche. Likable, strong, wise, and has a string sense of justice. He had soft brown curly hair, fair complexion, and sea blue eyes. He is a consistent Rank 1 student, and was every teachers favorite.

”Guess I should just get over there. ” I sighed and ran towards the Gym.

It was jam packed with students carrying swords, bows, shields, hammers, axes, claymores, staves, and even guns. Yep, this is a futuristic setting if I ever see one. I wonder what possessed me for writing this?

”Hey, is that him? The Wooden Spoon? ” A student asked and all eyes were now on me. They were all giving me conceited looks.

”Man, we
e finally going to be rid of him. His last assessment, he used a gun. You just point and shoot right? Yet he failed that too… ” A marksman said and they were all laughing.

”That means he is a master of none. Heh, look, hes going for the weapons rack. ” They were still looking at me once I reached the Hall of Armory.

The Hall is lined with Academy Weapons, basic things that offer basic stat boosts. The problem is, according to my profile… I have yet to find a weapon that is compatible with me. But now… I have a skill to determine if I am compatible with it.


I first looked at the Swords:

-Item Appraised!-

Academic Steel

Type: Sword

Bonus Stat: Strength

Compatibility Rate: E

Then at the Polearms:

-Item Appraised!-

Academic Javelin

Type: Polearm

Bonus Stat: Strength and Aim

Compatibility Rate: E

Then at the Bows:

-Item Appraised!-

Academic Sling

Type: Bow

Bonus Stat: Agility and Aim

Compatibility Rate: E

I appraised every weapon rack. And found out I was incompatible with every mainstream weapon.

I am so screwed. I told myself.

”Entrant! You
e the only one left!! Hurry up!! ” An instructor barked at me and I looked at her pitifully. None of these weapons were compatible with me. I was about to give up when something caught my eye. It was a rack of Magic Catalysts. Dolls, Paper, Crystal Balls, even Books. I took a deep breath and head over there and activated:


-Items Appraised!-

Name: Academic Puppet/Academic Astrolabe/Academic Sheets/Academic Grimoire

Type: Catalyst

Bonus Stat: Mind and Intellect

Compatibility Rate: B/B/B/B

”ENTRANT! ” The instructor barked again and I cursed under my breath and just took the Grimoire.

A screen then appeared before me yet again:

-Hidden Quest Cleared!-

-You have leveled up!-

-You have been bestowed the Title of: The Path of the Spellcaster-

-You have now access to Beginner Magic of: Script of Water/ Script of Wind/ Script of Light-

”What? Did he just… came out with a book? ” The students looked at me and they all laughed. But the instructor narrowed her eyes at me.

”This is your last chance to prove everyone wrong kid. Get to the board, your team has been decided. ” She said and I obliged.

I head for the large screen in the center of the gym, and my name is listed with the Male Lead, Second Lead and the best friend of the female lead:

”Tobias King, Claire Venus, and Lheon Khalid. You will be paired with the last placer. ” The Headmaster said and I could tell, Lheon and Claire didn like the idea. But Tobias walked up towards me and gave me a reassuring smile.

”Hey there, Yman Caliesto, right? ” He asked.

”Y-yeah. Im in your care. ” I bowed politely and Tobias grinned widely, Lheon sighs and Claire rolls her eyes again.

Off to a great start I suppose.
