Holly dating magician
Most people would do anything to pass the Iron Trial and get into the Magisterium. If he succeeds at the Iron Trial and is admitted into the Magisterium, he is sure it can only mean bad things for him. Twelve-year-old Callum Hunt has grown up knowing three rules by heart. The war against the Enemy of Death, known as the Third Mage War, began at least a decade ago.
All his life, Call has been warned by his father to stay away from magic, and told his whole life that he should never trust a magician. And never let a magician take you to the Magisterium. And when he does, his life will change in ways he can't possibly imagine.
For this, Call gets negative scores (apparently a first in the history of Iron Trials) and thus gets ten points deducted from his already low score.
The final test is one with Call's parents' old mentor, Master Rufus.
Alastair makes a scene, refusing to let Rufus have him.
He tries to negotiate with him, asking Rufus to allow him to train Call himself, to which Rufus tells him that he had twelve years to do so and he hadn't.
Once everyone is done with the test, all the aspirants return to their seats and the Masters come out to choose their apprentices. Unsurprisingly, he chooses the two aspirants who are tied at the top of the test rankings, Tamara Rajavi and Aaron Stewart.
During this time, Alastair raised and taught Call to fear magic and be distrustful of mages.
Call often has nightmares of getting lost in the underground tunnels of the Magisterium.
Remembering his father's advice, Call thinks of doing the very opposite of what they want him to—instead of making it float, he thinks very hard of making something pin the piece of paper down, like an imaginary hand.
Because of this, when Master Rockmaple finally lets those unable to do it stop trying, they can no longer remove the paper from the desk.
