These reader comments from chapter 26:
*some time later, a number of XCOM soliders meet in the "Rowling" Barracks/Lab*
*milling about and chatting, wondering why they're sitting in school-style desks, and have supplies of notepads, pens, and safety padding*
*they all stop and stare as a tiny purple unicorn waltzes in, steps up to the podium, and begins to speak*
"Good afternoon, my name is Twilight Sparkle. You are all here because you've tested positive to Field responsiveness, and volunteered for this additional triaining. I will be teaching you (eeee, my first class!) in the study of magic, so that you may be better perpared to protect your world and your loved ones."
*dead silence..... a minute*
"Yes, you in the back."
"Are we wizards now?"
"I am OK with this."
And naturally, Twilight recieves tips on proper teaching environments in the military setting from Bradford:
Twilight: *27 minutes of unbroken profanity insulting the new recruits character, parentage, personal hygene and personal worth*
Matt: "Twily...where did you learn all that?"
*Twilight produces a notebook with the sharpie title 'How to be a Drill Sergeant (by David Bradford)'*
Twilight: "David gave me this handy guide! It was so nice of him... but I don't know what half these words mean..." *opens the book and raises an eyebrow*

Give all the lawn gnomes to charity, forget about it, blame the aliens for stealing them, and then summon Old Man Henderson.
(Who knows what goes on in my mind, I don't.)
Pfft. Imposible's not hard enough. The author modded in an entirely new difficulty just for this.
