I think this answers the question if it would be too soon for Ashley to get transformed on party. Seems it would be hard to prevent her getting transformed, although it's possible Elliot will still try. Which leaves question what to transform her to ; THIS particular transformation would only be possible with goonmanji II debug sceptre ; Rhoda would be able to make her this small but not mouse, while Tedd may have mouse form watches but wouldn't know how to make her this small. However, Rhoda wouldn't be on the party (probably) ; besides the watch option (or TF gun, but they SHOULD keep that one secret) there will be just one person on party able to transform others, Ellen, and her most extreme spell is FV5, she doesn't have any animal transformations (although she can use copy to make them). Hmmm ... I suspect Ashley would be disappointed. At least until Kevin will help her learn some spell herself.

No mice were harmed in the creation of this episode.

No actual mice ARE in this episode. Ashley's mice form is very anthropomorphic.

Mouse Ashley is cute.

Ashley sure is going to be disappointed when she learns what Sarah's spell is (well, disappointed for herself anyway; I'm sure she'll be happy for Sarah). ...Speaking of which, I wonder if they'll tell her Sarah's spell at the party? It is a bigger secret then most of the cast's magic, after all, and while everything we've seen suggests Ashley is trustworthy, is Sarah going to be ready to trust her with a secret that they have to keep from the government (and in particular Tedd's dad)?

...Oh, by the way, yay for warm-glow backgrounds in panels three and four!

This is another example of the lines between fantasy and reality being blurred for Ashley, she very interested in transformation to the point where she's roleplayed transformation scenarios with her internet girlfriend and written fictional scenarios of jerks getting transformed. But the reality of stuff like that being possible is scary now that she's got magic, especially considering she can see how magic can be dangerous. She also was fine with the idea of other people having magic (like Elliot, and Nanase) but it's different when it applies to herself.

I'd guess that just as learning the martial arts also includes building confidence and developing the discipline not to misuse them,  Ashley's wizard training will help with her misgivings.

Well, I would HOPE they won't.

Note the "probably". She is still interested, but her experience with magic makes her scared it won't be as ... let's say safe as she's imagining it. Now, with this being EGS, transformations are extremely convenient, but likely still not AS convenient as she imagined, especially the mental transformations. Still, I think actually experiencing more transformations makes her less scared because she will see it's not as bad as she fears.

Hopefully. I mean, we just need to hope that Arthur was thinking about this. I would expect he would think about it now, but we don't know how experienced he was when creating the wand.

... the martial arts doesn't include building confidence and discipline automatically, it's there because someone made sure it will.

That's mostly why Elliot is throwing the party, to be able to show Ashley that magic can be fun. But that's not really what Ashley's worried about, she's fine if it's other people using it, but she's worried about using magic herself and possibly going too far with it, Pandora sensed that Ashley fantasized about going on transformation sprees, but couldn't give her the ability to because Ashley believed that it'd be wrong to do so.

Now becoming a wizard has opened up the possibility of fulfilling those fantasies, and it's put her in conflict with herself, "It's wrong!"  "But it'd be fun!" "But I don't want to hurt people!" would probably make her not want to go through with wizard training just so that she would never get the temptation to use magic and she could keep her fantasies as fantasies.

Yes. However, I don't think Ashley realizes it.

Spoiler: This would totally be something we should talk about under next comics.
