Default Labyrinth

Labyrinth - Grounds


Within the grounds of Beauxbatons sits an impressive structure known as the Labyrinth. The hedge walls of the maze stand at 12 ft tall, blocking most of the sunlight and casting shadows when it isn't the middle of the day. The paths are all long and winding but never fear, they can be figured out. Depending on who you ask or how good you are at path finding, it just might go on for miles.

Don't work too hard trying to create a map, the labyrinth changes each night, never taking on the same pattern twice. The walls themselves change appearance as well, sometimes being well groomed, other times being wild and seemingly unattended within the space of an evening. You're advised to be out of the labyrinth by night fall as this is when it begins to change.

There are several rest stops throughout this vast structure and should you really find yourself in a fix, you need only fire sparks and the keeper of the grounds will come find you. There are several escape points, but you'll have to find those as well if the center is unattainable for you.

Although this was her fifth year at Beauxbatons, Maéva had never attempted to navigate through the Labyrinth on the grounds. Maybe it was too intimidating or maybe she just didn't care about it, but today she found herself standing at the entrance, waiting for her friends and classmates to join her.

It was an assignment from Professor Bruneau, their Defensive Magic teacher, to make it through the maze in one piece. Though she was sure he was simply being dramatic when she said that. She hoped. And was this a mandatory assignment? Maéva couldn't quite remember if it was or for extra credit, but she supposed she needed to be here either way.

Where was everyone else though? She hadn't gotten the time wrong, had she? It wouldn't have been the first time... Standing up on her toes, she turned in a lazy pirouette as she waited, figuring if no one showed up in the next few minutes, she'd go back to the dorm.

This year had been especially kind to Rachelle - as all things, people, creatures, and forces of nature should - and granted her the most exquisite growth spurt she could have hoped for. As much as she had played up to the idea of being small and dainty in her first two years at Beauxbatons, she had embraced the tall and dainty vibes in this, her third year. Just as long as she didn't reach the height of her cousin Noah, because she just didn't think it would suit her (it didn't really suit him either, going by personality, but was too well-mannered to point it out), she would continue making the most of it.

Her long blonde golden hair falling down over one shoulder, Rachelle played with some of the strands, winding a lock idly around her finger as she approached the labyrinth. And another girl, already there.

"Hello," Rachelle said, sounding slightly put upon. Assignments, you know? Even fun homework, something they got to be active for, and actually required being outdoors, was still homework. She had to be annoyed about it, on a matter of principle. "Has anyone gone inside yet?"

Maéva spotted someone in her peripheral vision as she spun in that slow circle on one leg. Coming to a stop, she looked over at the younger girl as she neared closer. She didn't really recognize her, but she wondered if she was here for the class project as well or perhaps navigating a maze was this girl's idea of fun. Who knew?

"Hello!" she returned the greeting brightly, not quite noticing he other girl's tone. Oh, so she was here for the assignment! Maéva was glad to know that she hadn't gotten the date wrong after all.

"Oh, umm, I don't actually know, now that you ask," she said, thinking about it and glancing back at the entrance of the labyrinth. What if they'd already gotten started without her because she and this other girl were late? Maybe she'd gotten the date right and the time wrong! "I just got here a few minutes ago and you're the only other person who's been by so far." Should they wait? Or should they just go in and see?

Having gone from twirling that lock of hair to deftly and almost absent-mindedly working it into a long, thin plait, Rachelle looked from the older girl to the entrance of the labyrinth, and a moment later back in the general direction of the Beauxbatons palace. She did not have a fully unimpeded view of the route back, but what she did see was enough for her to make a decision.

"We should just get started," Rachelle said, looking at the other girl again. "If we're late, we might find the others inside, and if we're early, they can find us." It was a shame there were no boys around; Rachelle had started to enjoy the game of playing damsel in distress, pretending to find these tasks Just So Difficult. All too often, boys would swoop in and try to save the day, which meant she barely had to lift a finger, despite being just as capable as they were. It wasn't really a stunt she liked to pull with other girls. Defeated the whole point.

But waiting was the worst, so Rachelle would sacrifice that fun for today, and just focus on doing the assignment instead.

Maéva watched the younger girl a moment as she looked at several different places consecutively, and she was just about to ask her what she thought they should do when the other girl spoke up first. Pausing to consider her logic, she soon nodded slowly in agreement, donning her bright smile again.

"Okay! That sounds like a good idea," she replied, turning her eyes back to the entrance of the labyrinth. "Have you ever been in the labyrinth before?" she asked as she tentatively stepped inside and peeked around the first corner. "Oh! And I'm Maéva, by the way." She was friendly and it was only good manners to introduce oneself.
