Slytherin Common Room After Midnight
Slytherin Late-Night Studies
You've made your way back to the Slytherin common room after a particularly long lesson with Professor Sinistra. The walk from the astronomy tower to the dungeons is the longest one can make inside the castle walls. Fortunately, you had only made it halfway down the stairs before realizing you'd forgotten your text book. When Professor Sinistra walked over to check the focus of your telescope you stuffed the history of magic esssay you'd been clandestinely working on between its pages and tried to force it under your bag. If not for that essay - due in... oh, just six hours now - you wouldn't have bothered making the climb to retrieve your astronomy book.
You've reached your corridor and, having looked over your shoulder for eavesdroppers, whisper a password to the wall. At the sound of your voice, the stones obediently dissolve into mist.
You walk through the antechamber and into the Slytherin common room. A fire crackles merrily, brightening the large and beautiful but otherwise rather cold room. The lower windows look out into the depths of the blue-green lake and are flanked on each side by heavy drapes of emerald damask. Those set higher are bare and starlight against the velvet sky shines through them into the high-ceilinged room.
Angus, your Scottish wildcat, is standing on the back of your favorite chair, pawing at a smug-looking fish on the other side of the thick glass. He hears your approaching footsteps and bounds across the room to rub against your legs. A number of other students are studying or chatting amongst themselves despite the hour. Crossing the common room, you pull up a writing desk and take your usual seat to begin trying to uncrumple your essay. You think it will need a lot more than flattening if you're to earn decent marks, and as if he's heard your thought, Angus nuzzles your writing hand encouragingly.
