But Rosalie isn't a fool. She can't possibly have reached old age
without noticing that her magic was gone. Why would she make magical

Tacroy stalked her for umpteen years, surreptitiously doing magic for her.
I thought the demagicked ones got their magic back somehow, and Rosalie
had gradually lost her magic again as she aged.
