I can’t seem to help myself. I keep writing scenes where magic and science are intertwined somehow.

“Magic isn’t technology. But it’s definitely a science. Check it out.”

Stein called up a diagram. “Each magic has a distinct IR spectrum reading. Some are very similar—”

“Fire and light both has curves at 4700cm-1.”

“Right. But they are distinct.”

“So, what?”

“We’ve known for some time that each kill has a signature. Finally, we got a hit on the far end of the absorption spectrum.”
