"Got it."
Though my face is calm, my tail is anything but still. I've found something I can work with, found a pattern to this, and found my limit.

I aim noticeably further away for this spell test.
"Taqquin Taqquin"
"Annul"
spells testing
if and ONLY if I am not drained by the final spell, I attempt to make and store an essence of Taqquin.
after I finish this test, I move closer to the concentrated hate, attempting to put it on the edge of my estimated spell range, in preparation for my intended first act of the incursion.

Also it looked like 1 heart got three words per turn and 3 heart got four. Those results look odd to me so I'll mention them in case there's a mistake. It could easily also be correct for multiple reasons, of course.

As the orb gets bigger and the aura of hate it gives off gets stronger Heavenly Clerk begins slowly backing away "Uhh... guys? The uhh... the orb is getting bigger! I think we should prepare to start the therapy session!" As she looks around and notices everyones too busy doing weird magical things with words to pay attention to her she begins to sweat a little "Oh jeez..."

Alright time for a uhh... battle stance! N-not that im scared or anything like that im just err prepping myself for the client! Surely they would be restrained if they are really dangerous right RIGHT? Oh gosh I'm not paid enough for this!

Heavenly Clerk looks over at her confused "Eh? Spell? You mean those weird word jumbles everyone's yelling out? I mean I tried one of them and it made me glow for a second... regardless surely we can just talk to them and work out their problems right? Isn't that our jobs?"

"Well that isn't what I heard!"

Heavenly Clerk scratches the back of her head "Ehh regardless as silly as it is I guess some more practice with those weird word things can't hurt... just in case!" She takes a deep breath and points at some sand nearby "PERIWINKLE! Wait no... errr SCHINOBRO! Hmm no that aint it uhhh Aguilegog?"

Luna walks past the others, towards the growing black mass, her left hand gripping something.  Without a word, she hucks a piece of blackened bone into the ripple of hatred.  She watches for a second, observing the result of her brash little experiment.

"Well.  I hope all of you are ready.  Has anyone figured out how to make a weapon of some kind?  The best things I can do so far are smoke and ash."

She sweeps her gaze across her allies after that, eventually giving Heavenly Clerk a pitying look.  She walks over to the girl, patting her on the shoulder and speaking warmly.  "Don't fear your magic.  And stay close; we're in this together, okay?  Just focus on learning your magic, try and find a couple words that do something useful together.  We'll keep you safe when the outsiders come."

She then turns back towards the ripple of black hatred, and chants a couple more spells:  "Zorthul Harnenza.  Nevbek Cruulvous!"

((So much for heart being words-per-spell.  I agree with Leng, it's modifying a words-per-turn cap of 3.  Fallacy said on page 1 that heart 2 does do something, so my working guess is that we can burn heart for more mana.  It would line up perfectly well with the suggestion to "take from the well instead of its contents".))
