A Questionnaire on Magic (trying to get this one right)

Well, my apologies to all of you. That last questionnaire was far too much fun, but -- as several people pointed out -- as approximately as safe to turn in as a more mundane assignment that I happened to write on a live nycathath's wing rather than regular paper.

So, I'm doing it again. I'm doing it properly, and I'm doing it gently, and I'm doing it with all available care. Hopefully this will be the last one for this assignment.

A Zi Ri shouldn't really get impatient, I know... Alas.

What is your best spell?

What are your magical ambitions?

Magic is tedious -- I don't intend to study it any more than they made me in gradeschool.
2(10.0%)
Magic is something that every well-rounded civilized person should know, like reading and dancing and arithmetic. I have or want a basic highschool-level understanding of it, which is plenty for me.
3(15.0%)
Magic is fundamental to my profession (or hobby); e.g., I am a smith or something. I plan to be good at the forms of magic which are important to me.
7(35.0%)
I wish to be a professional mage of some sort (e.g., a spellbinder or enchanter, or even a guard-mage or professor of magic). I had better get good at a fair bit, right?
6(30.0%)
I am a magic geek! I want to be a great wizard! Magecraft is my life!
2(10.0%)

If someone were getting you a boxed spell to graft, as a present, what kind of spell would it be? (No this is not an offer! Unless you want to do an even trade!)

Something practical that I could use every day -- maybe a housetending or grooming spell.
7(35.0%)
Something to compensate for one of my defects, like a spell of clear vision or fur-cleaning.
3(15.0%)
Something fun! Levitation or sexplay or dancy illusion or something!
6(30.0%)
Something of professional use to me.
0(0.0%)
Something that will help my spouse wake up in the morning. (Special answer for Tillizar, who inspired this question.)
0(0.0%)
A mighty weapon: Angry Dragon or Cruel Ice Fairy or Insects of Agony Consume Your Flesh or something!
2(10.0%)
Other...
2(10.0%)

And what in specific might it be?

And, just to show that I'm the same Sythyry you all know: If you were casting a spell on someone you fancied, it would be:

A grooming spell -- my lover is very messy. (I do hope Lozostra isn't taking this...)
1(5.3%)
An energy spell like Bouncy Vigor -- my lover never gets enough sleep naturally. (I do hope that no married studen ts are taking this....)
4(21.1%)
A contraceptive spell! I'm cisaffectionate [attracted to same-species other-gender(s)] and I don't want children yet!
1(5.3%)
A flashy spell, maybe an illusion or something -- I don't have anyone just now and I'd like to impress someone.
8(42.1%)
An attack or a torment! My lover has recently enraged me!
0(0.0%)
Cloak of Another God or some other shapeshifting spell -- I want some variety in my sexual experience, but I want to stay with the same person.
3(15.8%)
A voluntary lust-spell. My partner is having some trouble in that regard, unfortunately. (No, nobody has specifically complained about this problem to me.)
2(10.5%)
A love-spell or an involuntary lust-spell -- I'm a wicked evil Mentador mage and I stop at nothing to gratify my desires!
0(0.0%)
