I'm adding verisimilitudinous to my computer's dictionary. :)

I can't begin to imagine what my magic would look like.  You're right that
all sorts of horrible realizations spring to mind about oneself.  I'm afraid
my magic would look like Gwendolen Chant's, but in a sort of leaning-on way
that intensified with the amount of attention I paid to things.  Awful, eh?
