Default L'Observatoire

L'Observatoire - Third Floor


The observatory is where students of astronomy gather to study constellations, heavenly bodies, and the universe, though many students simply come to gaze at the stars. The domed ceiling of the observatory reflects the current positions of the planets relative to the sun, but can also be charmed to reveal the sky's appearance at any time of the night or season. At the center of the room stands a large magical telescope that glints majestically in both sunlight and moonlight, and when the sky is overcast, seems to glow of its own accord. Students may not use it without the appropriate permission.

A large bookshelf lines one wall, filled with a plethora of space and astronomy books. Removal without permission is prohibited as they are equipped with a security charm. But you are free to use them at your leisure while studying and observing the stars inside the observatory.

It had been some time since Tavion made the trek to the observatory in order to take a look at the stars. He'd been spending a lot more time in the art room and out on the grounds, not to mention his dorm room where he could freely mirror and get assistance from his friends with his still rather poor French. But sometimes, when someone really wanted to think, looking at the stars was the best medicine.

Sketchbook with him as well, as it often was, he found himself a spot to sit on the ground, leaning back on his hands to stare skyward and see which of the constellations he could recognize. If he could find any of them, he'd draw it out on his paper too and play connect the dotes with it to make the outline of the shape, but that was only if he could actually locate.

Thus far, he was not having much luck. He turned to look longingly at the telescope for a moment - wishing he'd had forethought to request permission - before back to the sky. "Little dipper first, Tav. You have to be able to locate that much."

Donella was struggling with the French, and missing the warmth of most of her dormmates back at Hogwarts. She even, weirdly enough, missed Sadie's dirt being tracked. She hadn't developed those kinships yet with her new dormmates, but she had four years with the girls back in Scotland so she suspected it would take time, right? Would her parents be mad at her if she transferred for a year and then wanted to go back?

She did have Tav here though and it was someone she could freely speak English without fear of being judged, but she hoped she wasn't being a pest.

"why start with the little dipper? Go big or go home," she interjected, having walked into the observatory in time to hear him talking aloud to himself (?).

In truth, Tavion had liked Beauxbatons much more than he had liked Hogwarts. And probably more than he would have liked Ilvermorny, though he had never actually given that school a chance. He'd made a lot of good friends at Hogwarts too - but family always came first for him. So following his siblings had always been the thing to do, though that had certainly been difficult when his siblings started picking different directions and then it was like he had to start picking favorites. He didn't like to have those - he loved all of them, quirks and all.

But.. he was 15 now and soon enough he'd be the only one school aged left. Sure, there was one more year before that was the case but... maybe he should start figuring out what he wanted outside of his family now. Confusing when he also had friends in different places now as well.

Peering up at the sky, still trying to locate the little dipper; Tav jumped when he heard a voice behind him. Though it was familiar, and in a language he easily understood, so the smile was bright and ready when he turned to greet her. "Hey Donatello! You might have a point. The big dipper probably IS easier to spot, isn't it?" He appreciated she did not call him out for the oddities of speaking to himself. "What brings you up here?"

If Donella could read his thoughts it would be that she always envied Tav and his big family. Of course she had her brother and numerous cousins, but her brother graduated long before she started at Hogwarts and she never got to really experience the whole siblings at school thing. Which maybe was a good thing??

She smiled at the silly teenage mutant turtle nickname, feeling weird that she never really gave him a unique nickname that stuck like that. Truth be told she actually had zero clue if the big dipper was easier to spot, but logically it made more sense that it would be. "So i think i recall something about looking North about a third up from the horizon to find the north star. The big dipper rotates around the north star. Isn't the little dipper kind of like the kid to the big dipper and nearby?" Oops. Excellent question. She couldn't really tell him that she'd been following his schedule, could she? He'd understand though, she hoped. "Looking at the stars is one of the things that you can do anywhere in the world and it's mind-blowing that it's the same stars... the same moon." She answered his question with that instead, which wasn't really an answer yet kind of was? It made her wonder if Ivy or the other girls were looking at the stars at this exact moment too.

She answered his question with that instead, which wasn't really an answer yet kind of was? It made her wonder if Ivy or the other girls were looking at the stars at this exact moment too.
Tav was never bothered by the fact that most of his nicknames were simply Tav or Tavvy. With the exception of Mav's "Rikki Tikki Tav" they were all pretty vanilla. But his name was also not something that was often heard, despite the fact he had a brother with a very similar name. Truthfully, he would respond to whatever people called him anyways. His nickname for Donella had merely come from love of muggle cartoons. Besides, of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Donatello totally would have been the Ravenclaw, so it was fitting. He just hoped she didn't hate it. Not that he'd ever taken the time to ask if she did.

The North star! Duh! Looking up again at the sky and squinting, it wasn't long until he located, and even sooner after that he was able to find the big dipper. "There it is!" He excitedly pointed up towards the sky for her to see too, not remembering at all that pointing at such a large expanse was... hardly helpful. "I know the big dipper is part of Ursa Major but... I have such a hard time actually seeing the pattern on a constellation." Which had always seemed odd to him, since his mind was generally creatively inclined. Hearing her response to his question, blue eyes traveled from the sky to his friend with a slight frown. "Missing everyone at Hogwarts too?" He'd always missed everyone - Ivy, Phoenix, Lukas and her before this term. But Emi also being back at Hogwarts now made it even worse. Though on the flip side, Ella being here also made things easier in a sense. "I'm glad you're here. Do you regret transferring though?"

He was always so torn.
