True, it's only a little stretch to attribute that one to Croakamancy, and then another little stretch to attribute the hunger to Croakamancy, and the itching to Croakamancy too, but why would we want to stretch when we've got an explanation that is so much simpler? All these effects could just have been magic of whatever discipline most easily fits them.Lipkin wrote:Since Croakamancy deals with primarily the body, it's not much of a stretch to say the box used croakamancy to cause Jillian's eyes to stop working, while Orwell's Lookamancy caused Jillian to see only blackness.
It's blindness, so it looks like Lookamancy until there's evidence that suggests it's not. I guess the deafness was Lookamancy too, since I suppose Lookamancy deals with sounds as well as images and know of no discipline that's more likely. I'd bet the pain is Shockmancy; Wanda is probably very good at that. The hunger is hard to guess, but perhaps that could be Flower Power. The rolling is Turnamancy beyond any doubt, but I wouldn't be surprised if the freezing is also Turnamancy, since it seems fitting for a Turnamancer to be able to slow as well as accelerate things, and ice is what you get when you stop water. I have no guesses for itching and thirsting, but Croakamancy would be one of my last choices. Hearing the sound of screaming was surely Foolamancy, since there was no one actually screaming, but we could make an extra long stretch and call that Croakamancy too.
