What would a really awesome picture of Alice by Christopher Shy look like. He is two years older than Quentin and Alice, and in the same year as Josh and Janet. Clinton pretty much remained insufferable from beginning to end and the female characters seemed more about guiding Quentin or giving him a reason to experience manpain.
In every year, half of the students from the fourth year disappear from September to December, and the other half from January to April. Quentin returns with Alice to New York and attempts the spell to create a magical realm again, this time with the seed pod.
The group is not convinced, but Penny explains them that through his discipline, Interdimensional Travelhe was able to confirm its veracity. Impressed, the faculty allowed Alice to take the Entrance Exams, which she passed and admitted her into the school.
Niffins such as Friar Joseph who inhabit worlds devoid of magic are capable of slowly dying. It feels like they were shoved in to avoid charges of erasure but since these characters were not vital to the story and never really went anywhere, I'm still calling it erasure.
Upon the invocation of the spell, both the Shade and Niffin are forcibly combined, leaving a fully whole human in its place. Like, Jesus, dude, it's okay to say that you genuinely like the Narnia books. During her final year at Brakebills, Eliot, Janet and Josh finished their graduation, therefore they left Brakebills, but new students were accepted to Physical group, which Alice and Quentin never got along.
As a Niffin, Alice had a much larger reservoir of magic at her disposal than when she was human. So now, instead of dealing with whiny, entitled twenty-somethings, our characters are world-weary almost-thirty-year-olds who are finally, FINALLY figuring out how to be grownups.

This knowledge, however, is fleeting, as Alice's human mind cannot comprehend the complexity of the elements she had been exposed to, so she spent her first few days trying to write down everything she could before the knowledge was gone completely.
Her best line, when Eliot is trying to brainstorm ways to save Fillory: In this final trip, Quentin must finally accept himself for who he is and now and not who he thought he would be. I read as much of it as I can, and I answer as much as I can, but I never get to it all.
I love that she came out of that desert sure of herself, her power and her role in Fillory. Can I buy Magicians merch. He isn't special, because in real life, nobody is special. Sometime after magic vanished, however, she seems to have made peace with her new life and has returned to Brakebills.
Also a lot of people depend on the money from the Magicians books, not just me. With Alice being human again, she has lost this ability, as her magic is substantially weakened by the transformation. Back to Brakebills, Quentin and Alice start a relationship, much to the annoyance of everybody else, and started living in the dorms on the upper floor of the Cottage.
Due to the different physiology and capabilities experienced as a Niffin, the restored Magician will slowly lose all the advanced magical knowledge and comprehension of the universe that they obtained as a Niffin, though this does not affect their memory as a whole, as they retain the memories of their time in that form, however fleetingly it may be.
