"Look, messing with hearts is no small task. It's not the stuff a kid should be messing with. Or anyone, really."
"So they screwed it up?"
"In some way, probably. Magic can be very easy to screw up."
"I put on my robe and wizard hat-"
"No, I mean seriously. Half the reason old spells don't work anymore is people can't speak it right. We've lost the phonemes. Unless you're a period scholar."
"So we can blame pronunciation?"
"So you're saying people can't even draw spells right anymore? What the heck does penmanship have to do with it?"
"When was the last time you used a thorn?"
"From a plant?"
"Instead of 'y' for 'ye.' It's like a 'b' and 'p' combined."
"How about a tall 's?'"
"All the time?"
"Not capital. Tall. A tall lowercase 's.'"
"You're making this up, aren't-"
"Yeah. Language has changed. A lot. Magic hasn't."
