Default The Domes


A little way off the path between the castle and the lake stand several half-sphere outdoor shelters, known as the domes. Made from a sturdy and clear, charmed material that keeps the temperature inside relatively comfortable, and the air fresh, the main purpose of the domes is a location to hang out, alone or with a few friends. They also serve as impromptu shelters during sudden downpours, cool relief from the summer heat, or a place to warm benumbed fingers and toes during bitingly cold winters. Each is accessible by a simple door made of the same material.

The domes are near to each other, but not clustered too close together. They are completely transparent; those outside can see in, and those inside can see out. Occupied domes will light up - though the light has no obvious source - useful and downright cosy on overcast or gloomy days. The groundskeeper, and any staff member looking out of the windows on this side of the castle, will be able to see the domes if they're lit up after dark, so unless you want to light the 'hey, look at me, I'm out after curfew' beacon, don't even bother coming this way. Better yet, don't break curfew at all.

Each dome contains five comfortable chairs, and can comfortably hold as many students, maybe a couple more if you don't mind a tight squeeze. Try to refrain from seeing how many students can fit inside one of these things at once. Getting a score of kids hopelessly stuck will not have a good outcome for anyone, but it's up to you if you want to test that theory out for yourself.

The pair of Board members that followed the group out the domes made sure to keep a good distance behind, allowing the Transfiguration and Creatures Professors to lead the planting instead. The one nodded at the creatures professor in agreement. "Yes, for now just focus on the grounds." Leave it to a Hufflepuff to want more plants for their dormitory.

The board member did frown in consideration at his cohort when he overheard the whisper from the young Hufflepuff (Daniel) about them helping. "This is your school." Meaning, their job was not to tell them where specifically they should plant them only that they do get planted. Perhaps once specific locations were decided upon, they would help but for now, just oversight of the project.

She couldn’t help but feeling a bit left out when her friend brought up the celebration. She felt her face drop a bit and hoped Remy didn’t notice. “That sounds like a lot of fun. But, no I didn’t get to go.” But She shouldn’t be surprised. Ollie explained everything in her letters about the fight with her dad. Then she was distracted by the mention of curly fries. She heard her stomach growl and her eyes widened. “Oh my.. I’m so sorry.” She felt a tad embarrassed. “Those curly fries just looked so good in my mind.” She chuckled.

Ahh. So had Remy just admitted that they were just friends? She thought from their letters perhaps they were something more. But from Remy’s blush and emphasis on the word friend she figured they weren’t. Ollie leaned over and nudged her with her shoulder. “Lots of hanging out, huh?” She taunted and laughed.
Unfortunately, Remy did not notice Ollie’s face drop when she discussed her summer adventures. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to hang out with Ollie, because she had made many suggestions, but her friend just wasn’t around. “That’s a shame… was it on account of your dad?” Remy was all too familiar with what he was like, and she liked to think they were close enough for Ollie to disclose things with her.

Remy giggled when Ollie’s stomach rumbled. “Did you not have any breakfast?” She patted her robes pockets because she usually had snacks stashed somewhere, but today wasn’t the case. “We should go by the kitchen soon… if you wanna, I could eat.” In a little bit anyway.

Talking about her crushes with anyone was SO EMBARRASSING. Even with her closest friends, she absolutely hated it. If Ollie had a crush herself then she wouldn’t feel so bad. She nudged her right back and blushed some more. “Yeah. I guess.” She moved closer to Ollie to whisper. ”We held hands in DADA the other day.”

She wouldn’t mention that she was completely in love with Atlas. She was also quite partial to an Evan Nam but there was only so much she could discuss in one sitting.

Truthfully, Javier really enjoyed gardening. It was keeping the things ALIVE that he always struggled with. That and gnomes always seemed to get the better of him. Even though he enjoyed planting things and caring for them, it wasn't an ideal use of his time - but he was forcing himself to get down there and help out, even just for a bit. He knew he'd enjoy the greenery once he got down there, and he WAS genuinely curious as to how the grounds looked after his years at school. One thing in life was certain - the Hogwarts grounds would ALWAYS be changing.

"'ello Mia,"
he greeted his colleague with a smile. "Where are we at in the planting process?" he asked, glancing around and trying to assess what else needed to be done. He still wasn't sure he bought the whole 'planting new plants will brighten up your school and your spirits' thing the Board was going for, but he wasn't a bright person to begin with, so perhaps he was just wrong.

Planting around the entrances did seem like a good idea. Ivy was already picturing it in her head, especially how it might all look once the flowers were in full bloom, and it definitely had potential! The domes were already pretty nice, but a few extra flowers here would make them look even more welcoming.

It was still weird that the board members had followed just to hang around and do nothing helpful, but she was trying not focus on them. Just...just focus on the flowers. On how nice it was outside. Anything besides them.

"I'll get started on this one over here." In case anyone wanted to join? Once she'd reached the dome she'd chosen, she set the plants she was levitating down. Yeah, these would look nice around the entrance to this one!

Mia tried not to look at the board members there, just...following, watching, not helping. She wasn't sure if this was normal, this...having people looking over your shoulder, but it was certainly not what she'd grown accustomed to in her line of work. If would take hours to care for creatures if there was someone second-guessing your every move. Kneeling down next to the entrance of one of the domes, she began digging with a trowel. Oh, good, Javier had arrived, too. She smiled at the man, gesturing to the students at work and the domes in general. "We're in the getting it done part of the process," she said with a small chuckle. The students seemed eager to dig and get the plants in the ground, and her fellow professors too!

As she finished digging and settled some of the plants in the hole, she glanced around some more. "Looks good over there, Miss Grimm!" she called encouragingly.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Daniel turned his head to look over at Professor Paszek before nodding his head. Fine, no plant for his nightstand for now. But she didn't say anything about later which meant he still had a chance.

'This is your school'

Daniel frowned at these words because they were wrong. This was not his school he simply studied at it. "Isn't it your idea, though?" he questioned as he noticed Professor Hernandez enter the domes as well. He looked at him for a moment before turning his gaze back at the Board Members and then turned to walk after an older Ravenclaw student (Ivy) he was certain was called....well she had a plant name, didn't she? Very fitting.

"I can help" he announced as he pointed a finger at the plants she had been levitating earlier. "with those. If you want"

It sure got hot when you were just standing around, watching students and professors plant seedlings around the grounds. Glancing at the other, one of the board members rubbed his now sunburned neck before clearing his throat.

"Alright children! I think that's good for now. Well done," he said, trying to give them a nod of encouragement. How many had they planted? Surely enough to brighten up these...dome...things...whatever they were. "You're free to leave now. Thank you for your assistance," he added to the kids before giving a curt nod of thanks to the professors nearby as well.

Dahlia being the wandering explorer that she was had come across the domes very shortly after the term had started. This had quickly became an interest of hers and a nice hideaway despite the simple fact that she was very easy to find. It was a nice comfy, quiet place to relax and read when she was outside but not wanting to be OUTSIDE.

Like this afternoon. Having already helped out with the creatures in the barn and checked on all of her own plants, as well as went for a run.. it was now time for a bit of downtime. Settling down in one of the chairs inside the middle dome, Lia got herself comfortable. She had a few books to choose from and nail polish and all of her bracelet making materials. This was going to be a nice day.
