Default Balcony


The balcony located on the fourth floor is one of the few balconies in the castle. In an opening along the corridor, on the opposite side of the castle from the library, is where you can find this particular balcony. If you ever need a break from doing that lengthy Arithmancy homework or need a place to relax with a friend, this balcony is a great place to get a few minutes of fresh air before getting back to work again.

You will notice that you are approaching the balcony when you can feel a slight change in temperature. During the autumn and spring seasons, the breezes that come through this opening are inviting. The winter months, however, bring forth a chill, even with the nearby torches being lit. No matter the temperature, the fourth-floor balcony always provides some of the most breathtaking sights of the grounds below and mountains beyond as well as a clear view of the Whomping Willow in all of her glory. Keep note that it does get a little wet here when it rains, so make sure you conjure an umbrella.

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

Daniel had walked up the staircase to the fourth story balcony with his Transfiguration book in hand, having discovered a new Transfiguration spell he intended to practice.

Checking that the space wasn't occupied by anyone else, the Hufflepuff walked to the edge and looked around.No matter how many times he saw it, the sight never got old. Even more so now that the sun was lowering on the horizon.

He took a seat, grabbed his wand from his expensive wrist holster and opened the book in his lap He flipped through the pages until he got to the bird-conjuring charm. Raising his wand, the pointed it slightly upward and muttered the incantation while performing the wand movement.

Nothing happened. Sigh.

Summer had been doing a bit of reading in the dorm, but now she just wanted to go and explore, even though this was her second year at Hogwarts, she knew there would be loads of places that she still had to explore.

As she was on the fourth floor, she heard a voice that sounded familiar, she walked towards it and noticed Daniel. "H......................." She was about to greet him when she saw that he had a wand in his hand.

"Oh are you doing magic?" Summer was so excited, she loved watching magic. "I've got what spell your doing, it's the water spell, are you having a water fight, like are you dropping the water down trying to get someone on the ground floor." Summer giggled, she used to do that out of her bedroom window at home. It was an epic game.

When Daniel tried the spell a second time, Nemesis' advice from his first year came to the forefront of his mind. Intention and visualization. He closed his eyes and was about to move his wand again when he heard footsteps approaching. Daniel opened his eyes and glanced at Summer, one of the Gryffindors and he felt irritated by the intrusion but he remained silent as she eagerly stated that she knew the spell he was practising. "Obviously this is NOT the water-making spell,"*he scoffed, before remembering that the girl was only in her second year and would make mistakes. Was he going to offer an apology? No.

Her following set of words, on the other hand, piqued his interest. The teen closed his textbook and got up before resting against the balustrade with his back. "I bet I can hit someone below with the Aguamenti charm faster than you can" he challenged.

But then he seem to be piqued by something she said and she heard him close his textbook. She looked up just in time to hear his challenge. "No way, I can hit someone below a lot quicker than you." She giggled. "But I'll accept your challenge!"

Ash really liked it here, out on the balcony. It was a beautiful view, and it was a peaceful place. No matter what she was doing, she always felt peaceful here. No matter what.

During a quiet moment between class and starting her homework, she had ventured out here and sat near the edge, journal in hand(she also brought art supplies, for the view).

She was working on writing with her best best handwriting, so that she could read it later. She also sung to herself, because she felt like it. "And you say that you're not worth it" She felt very nice. Maybe it was the weather, or maybe it was just her mood. "You get hung up on your flaws" She smiled to herself as she wrote her journal entry. "Well, in my eyes you are perfect" There was nowhere she was thinking about more or wanting more than the present moment, right here. Wasn't that nice? "As you are..." She wished there were more days like this in her life. Just her, her notebook, and the view from this balcony. And her cat. Scar was always welcome to come. And Maggie the owl, she supposed.

"I was practising the bird-conjuring charm"he said but he could learn that later. Anytime he could showcase his magical abilities in a contest he would.

Oh? Did she accept his challenge? As he peered down the balcony, a devilish grin formed on his face. The problem was that it was almost dinnertime, and there were almost no students outside, and those who seemed to be far away. Their spells could never reach them. "What about this instead? The one who hits that boulder down there first wins " He pointed to the stone in the distance before turning his head to look at the younger.

Was he going to mention that he had done a lot of target practice? Nope. But then again, he had no idea how good Summer was. The idea of losing to a second year was unacceptable. "We should add a prize for the winner"

She wished there were more days like this in her life. Just her, her notebook, and the view from this balcony. And her cat. Scar was always welcome to come. And Maggie the owl, she supposed.
Just what had brought her to this floor on this particular day? She supposed that was yet to be revealed. While the curiosity of the mirror located here had drawn her to settled on this floor with either her homework or watercoloring, today was not one of those. Nor was it a day where a stray feather or fluff of dust had swirled and lofted about with her in dreamy pursuit. Not even the library had had any particular pull, though she did have plants to camp out in front of the line separating the restricted section from the rest of the library around 4 o'clock. Perhaps the only thing that might have lured her attention was the sight of what appeared to be a particularly spherical looking mouse scampering about, which would mean she required more salt than currently lingered in her pockets.

Hearing a voice on the air, Mitsuki pivoted from her every third stone hopping down the corridor on her tip toes and eventually came to the open balcony with Ashley Fox nestled upon it. The crisp autumn weather seemed welcoming enough, though she was reluctant to interrupt the older Ravenclaw from whatever it was she was doing.

So...lurking in the background and observing it was for the time being. Though the arrival of a crow along the ledge caught her attention and she took a couple steps towards it to count the legs.

Ash was... less observant than usual today, seeing as she was very wrapped up in what she was doing and had let down her guard(nothing bad had happened YET). She finished her song with a serene smile on her face, settling into her writing. It was best to write when she felt all peaceful like this...

A slight movement caught her attention, and Ash felt a brief moment of disappointment at being disturbed. Of course, she couldn't feel disappointed much when she realized that it was Mitsuki(and a very beautiful crow). Mitsuki was an interesting one, and far from the worst person she could have encountered. In fact, she was rather pleased to see the younger Ravenclaw. She offered the other girl an easy smile. "Feel free to come out here, Mitsuki. It's a beautiful day." Ash could use the company. She tucked her notebook away in an unseen pocket. Best to put that away for now.

To her disappointment, the crow that had drawn her attention only had two legs. It really was a disappointment for the both of them and thus the sun's light became less warm and more somber. Mitsuki slipped her hand into her pocket and pressed her fingers firmly against the bottom seam, rolled a couple of granules around between her thumb and index finger, and pulled her hand free once again.

Eyes widening, she rolled up on to her tip toes and felt a rush of heat when Ashley noticed, acknowledged, and welcomed her all in the ease of one sentence. Silently and with a small bow of the head, the second year did just that and took a couple of steps towards her.

The crow, meanwhile, was hopping back and forth along the railing, bobbing its head up and down before unleashing a sharp SQUACK.

This would also have been the moment to speak, but Mitsuki kept quiet and with only a small and tightlipped smile on her face to show her modest appreciation.

Ash flinched at the crow's squawk, before gradually relaxing again. She hadn't noticed a change in the sunlight- if it was somber, well maybe it had always been like that? "Have I kept you waiting long? I was just writing... Things." She was journaling, but she didn't feel quite up to sharing that. She had also been singing, but that had been obvious, and there was no need to hide it. She doubted Mitsuki would ask a million questions about either. How... refreshing. To not have to fill the silence.

Hmmm. Unfortunate.

Brows frowning, Mitsuki's hand slipped into her robe's pocket for a little pinch of salt between her fingers and rubbed gently so a majority of the granules sprinkled on to the ground and tops of her shoes. Any residual bits were then licked off and her hands folded behind her back while she took a couple more airily timid steps towards the older Ravenclaw.

"Kept me waiting?" she repeated, her head quirking to the left first and then back to the right. Had Ashley been waiting for her? She felt her tummy perform a kind of wiggle. "No." Though her answer lacked a certain confidence. "Things is rather nondescript." No judgement, simply stating an observation on Ashley's choice of topic.

That was... not a reassuring answer, but she took Mitsuki's words at face value. "Good, good..." Ash ran a hand through her messy hair. She hated keeping people waiting, because then they wouldn't like her, and then somehow everyone would hate her probably. She didn't like the thought of that. Mitsuki didn't really seem to hate her, fortunately. She would have left by now. Although maybe her face was flushed with anger? or did it mean she thought Ash was a cool older student? That would be nice. Ash much preferred being cool and interesting to being a total failure who nobody liked. she worried sometimes.

Ash smiled slightly at the words. "I was writing personal things." So it made sense that they weren't that descriptive. She hardly wished to burden anyone's mind with her writing, or give them material they could use against her. She wasn't annoyed Mitsuki had pointed her out though. It was important to notice when other people were being vague.

It really was for the best to do as such. Mitsuki rarely spoke in flowery prose or metaphorically, even the times she seemed to were not done so intentionally. Which had the converse effect that she took everyone's words at face value, something that had her in quite the predicament right now seeing as she had clearly forgotten an arrangement to meet with Ashley here and it elicited the most unpleasant of feelings and her pale features made her rising rouge even more noticeable.

Personal things. She supposed that was a much more interesting sequence of letters than just things, though not by much. Mitsuki particularly enjoyed writing p's, however. "That is still rather nondescript," she noted as she finally came and settled down beside the older Ravenclaw properly.

Summer listened to Daniel, she had been standing there for a while trying to figure out if to take part, it would have been more fun with students but then again maybe that would get them in to trouble. "Or we can wait until a Professor goes past and see who can hit them first!" Summer giggled, surely the Professor wouldn't know who it was.

Summer though didn't know if Daniel would like that so she added. "Oh yeah, we could do that, and see who has the better aim!" Summer then heard something about a prize. "How about chocolate, whoever wins the loser has to buy them a chocolate frog and some butterbear, next time they are in hogsmeade!" Summer wasn't asking for a date or anything like that, but chocolate and butterbear was always good.

Ash didn't really believe that people should be taken at face value, but Mitsuki seemed blunt enough. That was nice. "It's personal 'cause I don't want to burden other people with it." That was what her journal was for... stuff that she just couldn't say without killing the mood. She was writing it to just get it out(she didn't know that Mitsuki was coming). But she did come. So... no more journal time. They should do something more fun! Like painting.

She returned from her thoughts to see Mitsuki turning even more pink. "Are you quite alright?" Did she have a fever? Had she stumbled upon a humiliating memory? Ash also made that face when she saw Theodore.

...

..........

Huh.

Mitsuki as well was not one to judge a book by its cover. After all, if you did so you would never read the store on the pages behind the cover. But...what you see was basically what you got when it came to this particular Ravenclaw, much more straightforward than her Hufflepuff sister or Thunderbird brother. "Things are the heaviest when you carry them by yourself," says easily, reflecting on her own school trunk as she says this bit of advice. "They become lighter if you ask for help and the load is shared." Like she had asked father for help with her trunk. Or Mercer with eating the soup the man kept making and giving to them for each train ride. "I do not have very strong arms, but I try."

Her face felt hot, but she was fine and not in any kind of distress nor peril. Which was why she could easily answer Ashley Fox's question. "Yes. I am." Mitsuki paused to tilt her had a bit to the side and consider the older Ravenclaw. "Are you? You have burdens."

"Things are the heaviest when you carry them by yourself," says easily, reflecting on her own school trunk as she says this bit of advice. "They become lighter if you ask for help and the load is shared." Like she had asked father for help with her trunk. Or Mercer with eating the soup the man kept making and giving to them for each train ride. "I do not have very strong arms, but I try."

Her face felt hot, but she was fine and not in any kind of distress nor peril. Which was why she could easily answer Ashley Fox's question. "Yes. I am." Mitsuki paused to tilt her had a bit to the side and consider the older Ravenclaw. "Are you? You have burdens."

"Some weights are too heavy to give to people who aren't trained," which is why she had a therapist instead of telling all her problems to her little brother, who was like nine, or Mitsuki, who was definitely not nine but was younger than Ash by some amount. "But I guess I can tell you a little bit..." Was that a good idea? Her gut said no. But to be fair, her gut also said 'I'm not hungry' when she actually was kind of hungry so she supposed her gut could be wrong. She thought about it, twirling her pen in her hand in case it helped.

"Most people here have burdens." She paused for a while, choosing to ignore the blushing since Mitsuki said she was quite alright. "Well I guess I have a lot." She looked over using her peripheral vision, and was quiet for a while. "I could never be careful. When I was younger." She could never keep her mouth shut. It was a mistake.

Truth be told, she would not have had an answer for Ashley Fox even if she had asked more directly about the blushing. One could not provide an answer for something that did not understand themselves.

Instead, the older Ravenclaw's response elicited yet another head tilt. "Are you trained to hold them then?" She was not sure what kind of things required training to learn how to carry, but she was curious if Ashley had been trained to do so.

Getting a little more comfortable so she could listen, Mitsuki reached into her pocket for her little dish and the other pocket for some salt. The salt she took a pinch and tossed it on the balcony in front of them and licked the remaining granules off without missing a beat. "How much younger?" How many heavy things could someone little carry and keep carrying?

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Ash shook her head, then nodded. "I carried them before I knew how to. But I guess I learned how to from having to hold them all the time? That's a dangerous way to learn things, I think." What an interesting metaphor they were using right now. She continued to twirl the pen, mind somewhere else.

Ash was aware that Mitsuki carried salt around, so she paid little notice to it. She paid little notice to anything really, until it became clear to her that she had been asked something. It took her a good thirty seconds to figure out what the question was, during which she was silent and appeared to be looking at something that disturbed her. "A few years. 5, 4, 3... Pretty much every year before now." She thought about it. "Four years."

"Four." She gave no explanation for the revision.

Mitsuki found herself nodding, though she was not sure that she would choose the word 'dangerous' to describe such methodology to learning. Perhaps 'ill-advised' would be a better fit. "You do not always learn the right way. Just the way to get through the situation," she elaborated, though her own thoughts were wandering to her attempts at learning how to use chopsticks and doing so in a way that suited her immediate needs but in the long run were not a sustainable method. She was not in disagreement with Ashley Fox, but she did feel that dangerous was a bit too strong a word.

Quick math, the calculation entirely reflexive, brought about a specific conclusion and one she could easily draw certain conclusions with. It was a year that would life in infamy, after all, even if Mitsuki was on the cusp of being too young to full understand what all she had been experiencing. What her family had been. But, it was not fair to project certain assumptions on to anyone without confirmation. "Your second year," she stated.

The year of the Third Wizarding War.

It was ill-advised because it was usually dangerous. Effective(questionably) but dangerous. Ash knew from surfing that trying big stuff before you were ready was playing with your safety. Not that you could always help it... sometimes there was just a wave that was too big and unavoidable. She was glad she didn't start surfing the way she started Hogwarts for the first few years. Alone and with no common sense.

She stretched out face-up on the floor and rubbed her tattoos. Looking at the sky made her feel very, very small. "Yes." Ash took a deep breath. "Getting held hostage was not awesome for muggleborns. Or people who supported them. Or people who couldn't be quiet." Not that being quiet would keep you safe. She knew it could not.

She didn't recall the sky being this blurry, or the temperature being this hot. And she was pretty sure that the world wasn't shaking, like it did in her first year. It must have been her shaking, then.

It was an unspoken understanding, Mitsuki's favorite, that they were referring to the same thing. The same time. It was logical to presume that anyone who spoke to that year would be referencing the war, but there was always a chance someone was not. She preferred not to project her assumptions, though Ashley Fox was confirming it with great transparency.

It was only with Mercer she ever offered up information about herself unprompted, never feeling it her place to do so when the other person was speaking to themselves, and so she did not do so here either. "I would think it was unpleasant for everyone," she replied cautiously but clinical. "Not only those who happen to fall into those three groups."

Mitsuki did not.

She was not meaning to diminish of invalidate all that the older Ravenclaw was feeling, but she had observed that people tended to focus in and exclude others who shared in those same experiences and also carried burdens.

”Mhm,” Ash said, mostly because it was the easiest sound to make without actually opening her mouth. She couldn’t trust her voice to not crack or shake or do something else embarrassing. She thought about what she wanted to say first, so she wouldn’t stumble. ”I meant the takeover of Hogwarts, the part I saw. A lot more people suffered during and after the actual fighting, with dead loved ones and stuff like that. That never really happened to me, I was, um, unconscious for the fighting part and my family isn’t… they didn’t fight. It was the(deep breath)- the um, for me it was the… the um… nevermind.” She fell silent, trying to calm down before she said more.
