The book will be fine. Just put some string through the back and… whew. That should hold it.
"Explosive mold is a curious thing. From what we could gather, it is a hybrid of the Black Spice plant from the east, and Arctic Mold, a common and very invasive plant from these parts. Given conditions where it is chilly and moist enough, but not frozen, the mold could bloom, resulting in similar explosive powder harvested from Black Spice."

Or if you prefer, because I can be very unreasonable. I have been tasked with looking after the well being of the students, and this is an important step in doing so.
So, you, as the prince's closest somepony, were the obvious candidate to aid me."

Mould the image of the North to fit our needs. One way is to present it as a place of beauty open for Equestrians to visit, if enough Equestrians come here, Equestria can do nothing lest they risk their citizens. Or we can trick the world into thinking highly of us, through performing deeds and speaking of them in 'just' the right way. If we must, win the loyalty of the surrounding lands by presenting the great Wintergrasp as a land of prosperity, or a land of justice, whatever fits our ends.

Doing what is 'good' could require you to do some very bad things. You have to be sure that the end justifies the means.

"I think I know how you feel. I, too, once tried reaching for the moon. Perhaps I can offer some advice after all.
You could try getting someone else - hold on, let me finish - getting someone else. Someone close to him, and being so good to him, the target of your true desire goes mad with jealousy. He will hear tales of your deeds daily, and begin to want you for his own. And you will coily resist, saying you should not, and then, at the height of his madness, accept his efforts and take him as your own. He will think it was his victory. When all it was was him falling for your trap.
