Default Office of Professor Ayana Sissay

Adjacent to the Arithmancy classroom is (you guessed it) the Arithmancy professor's office, currently occupied by internationally renowned arithmancer, Ayana Sissay. Never heard of her? That's quite all right. Arithmancy fame is rarely far-reaching.

The inside of Professor Sissay's office is directly influenced by her old office at Uagadou. The are two windows within the office, one that correctly portrays the weather outside and overlooks the Hogwarts grounds, and another on the opposite window that shows a harsh, rocky landscape. It is commonly covered in snow but strikingly beautiful, especially after sunset. The Mountains of the Moon. Above that window, a series of seven numbers are faintly etched into the framework.

Upon closer inspection, it is plain to see that there are a lot of numbers in this office. On the portraits, drawn on the table, on her inkwell, dotted through her bookcase that covers the entire back wall of the room, and in other odd corners of the room. Her books are eye catching and colourful, an impressive collection of information on Arithmancy she had amassed from her travels around the world. There is a faint smell of spices in the air, and the chairs provided for visitors to sit on are all mismatched but very comfortable.

While everything is very neatly sorted and filed, the colourful nature of the office makes it seem comfortingly messy. Professor Sissay has gone to great lengths to ensure that her office is inviting and unimposing, if a little foreign. There is one single photo of her family on her desk and is always turned away from any visitors. While Hogwarts is her new home away from home, Ayana likes to keep her personal life private.

OOC: To visit Professor Sissay, please post your character knocking on her office door and waiting for her to respond. We will do our best not to keep anyone waiting!

Ayana looked up when she heard a knock on her door, in the middle of reviewing her next lesson plan. Hmm. One of the students she had asked to speak to perhaps? "Come in!" She gently blew on her parchments to dry the ink, then rolled them up and neatly placed them on the shelves behind her.

Ayana smiled as she recognised the little student who walked through her door, and gestured for Austin to sit at one of the chairs provided. "Hello Austin, thank you for coming to see me. How are you getting along with the Arithmancy homework?" she asked, because Arithmancy was still her primary concern. She had spoken with some other staff members, and she wanted her subject to be the focus of this little meeting.

Austin blinked. He was confused, about everything in the lesson. He clutched his notebook tempted to write everything downm. No. Don't write it down. Just talk. He sighed from frustrationm. Just talk. It's not that simple. He's sorry but it's not.

Ayana waited, and.. waited some more. Hmm. "Take your time, I'm not in any hurry," she said after a minute or two, in an attempt to perhaps ease the boy's nerves. If speaking was challenging for him, then she'd make her office as accommodating a place as possible. But she did require him to speak at some point, at least so she could know what he did not understand, and help him with it.

He blinked and took his notebook and pencil. Maybe if he wrote it down, it would be easier to talk.
He looked at the notebook and read what he wrote.
"I don't undetstand the whole thing about arithmacy in general," he said.

Hmm. "Arithmancy, down to its core, is about numbers and their meanings, and what we can learn about the world from those meanings," she said gently, glancing between the notebook and Austin slowly. Ayana then took a small piece of parchment from her desk, picked up her large quill and wrote down some names of elementary Arithmancy textbooks. The first one on the list she'd brought to Hogwarts herself, and it was precisely for students such as Austin, who hadn't quite grasped the concept of Arithmany on the first go.

"Here, take this list to the library, and look for these three books," she added after a beat, placing the parchment gently on top of Austin's notebook. "They're very clear, very simple textbooks, meant to convey the basic principles and nothing more." The first textbook had been written by a personal friend, a fellow arithmancer who'd put a lot of effort into strengthening students' arithmancy foundations. And the foundations were the most important, because without them there was no hope for any deeper understanding.

Austin nodded putting the notebook on his lap. He took the parchmemt. "Thank you. I...I'll check it out," he said.
Did the notebook make her nervous or something? It was just a mundane notebook that he bought at a muggle store in London. .
