HousingEach path of witchcraft has a specific tower for the living accommodations for each student within those schools. Students have the option of having a roommate or having their own room. Faculty get their living spaces attached to their office space, and are the only ones who can access them. Here are some examples of dorm room assignments:
A thanks to Professor Shadowend for showing us her room!
It was still early morning, and the new school year was about to start. The beginning of the new school year is an exciting time for many, and a dreadful one for many others. For Henry Morgan Lazuli, it was very exciting, especially since he was Headmaster of Silverleaf School of Fine Magic and Practice. For Headmaster Lazuli, it was a chance to meet new faces and reconnect with familiar ones. It was a time of learning for all, even for the Headmaster, because even though he was once a student here himself, he always believed one is never too old to learn, and this also meant that he knew that each and every person was unique.
Headmaster Lazuli was in his office waiting for the go-ahead to make his way to the auditorium to make his welcome speech. While he was waiting, he was organizing the many books and scrolls that resided within his office. The numerous tomes and volumes throughout the office ranged from ancient to new, and from small to enormous. He recently acquired about a dozen or so books at a meeting and was trying to find the proper places for them. The office itself was very large and ornate, and was decorated with fine art, statuary, antique furniture, and large model ships, all of which Headmaster Lazuli had built himself.
The sun was all too bright as Austin reluctantly began her morning in dire need of some waffles and a extra large coffee. The beds will was all too strong as she hit snooze for the umpteenth time in hopes shed wake up slightly less tired. As the morning progressed Austins wardrobe became a black pair of legging ( With pockets of course ) and whatever flannel was laying around. She repeatedly refreshed her email waiting for a class schedule.
Austin had always known she was " Different " but never could figure out how to use her " Gift" in any manner that would be helpful. She briefly studied Latin in hopes she could learn a few helpful spells or hexes.
She sighed and exited her dorm to stroll around campus like the freshman she was..
Eden fell asleep while writing in her grimoire again. ‘What a perfect time to fall asleep in the kitchen practicing spell work: the night before school starts back up,’ Eden thought sarcastically. She peeled her droopy head from the pages of the book. She could feel the dried, crusty drool pasted to her cheek, and her hair was so frizzy, it looked like a Griffin’s nest. Gross.
Looking down at her scribbles from the night before, Eden gathered up the used candles and burnt herbs back into her portable ritual case. It was still relatively early in the morning for her, and it was still quiet except for the faint sounds of nature coming from the window. Still, in a discombobulated haze of partial sleep, Eden heard footsteps from the hall before she looked at her reflection on the back of a spoon. Bewilderment and embarrassment spread across her face. She hurried to wipe away the stray saliva from her face and pat down her stray hair after spitting out a spell to finish cleaning up her mess on the table. “Tersus sersum”
By the time the person entered the room, Eden was still adjusting her messy appearance and items were flying through the air, flitting back to her enchanted case. She twirled around and croaked in a raspy voice when she felt the other presence approach the kitchen, “G-good morning” Her arms awkwardly crossed over her chest after pulling down to adjust her white, oversized, loose-knit sweater.
Eden tensed when she saw her future professor. Bigger magic at this school was meant to be saved for controlled environments, such as the classroom, or somewhere isolated. Not a communal kitchen.
“U-Urm… I’m in advanced studies this year, Ms. Shadowend.” A slight french accent rolling off her tongue, Eden wanted to keep Tabitha talking so that she wouldn’t notice the unorthodox ingredients settling neatly in her vintage suitcase that could lead to magic with… dark intentions to say the least.
“I’m not usually an early bird. My familiar is probably snoozing in my room at the moment.” A chuckle passed her lips as she turned to close her suitcase. She then walked over to grab a cup of water, not realizing her spell journal was still opened to the page from last night. “If you don’t mind me asking, what are you doing wide awake so early in the morning?”
