Jay and Jeremy walked out of the clothes shop with their custom-ordered blue- and green-accented robes, respectively. The shopkeeper had to uncharm the money to make sure it wasn't counterfeit, but the robes cost enough anyway that the brothers could now handle the weight of the money unaided, along with the weight of the clothing.
"Ha, teachers' robes are pretty darn cool," Jeremy remarked as the brothers walked towards the next place; the magic equipment shop.
"Yeah, I like how they accented the robes in our favorite colors, too," Jay replied. They made it to the magic equipment shop and went in, strolling up to the counter.
"Ah, what can I do for you two?" the shopkeeper asked jovially.
"We need a couple wands, but..." Jay began, stopping to procure his staff, Jeremy doing the same, "we already have these."
"My, yes, you two must come from far away. Everyone uses wands here. Tell you what, I've got a deal on transmogrifying wands," the shopkeeper stated.
"Transmogri-what?" Jay asked, confused.
"Okay, so in the case that somebody needs a wand, but already has a different object they use to cast spells, we can enchant a wand and link it to the specific object," the shopkeeper explained.
"Sounds neat," Jay said.
"All the person has to do is will it to switch forms, and it'll oblige. Of course, since the wand and the object are different shapes, the wand must be free from grasp before it can transform," the shopkeeper continued.
"Great, so how much does that cost?" Jay asked. The shopkeeper told them and they paid promptly.
"Now, we'll need those staves of yours for a few minutes. We will also need to take a couple measurements and do some tests to find your perfect wand," the shopkeeper instructed as he stashed away the payment. He snapped his fingers and two workers came from another room. After the brothers handed the shopkeeper their staves and set their clothing bags on a nearby table, the workers began to measure the brothers with magically-extending measuring tape. The brothers stood as still as they could while the workers did their thing.
