"Nice to meet you, Christabel," she said, after the younger student introduced herself, deciding to start with the easy quick and part. Then she continued, addressing the concerns that had been raised earlier. "Don't worry, the common rooms weren't on the tour, that's why you don't remember them. After the feast, our Head of House, Professor Tarnasay, that one," she pointed him out at the staff table, "will lead you back to where Aladren is located. It's not on the tour because House locations are supposed to be secret from people not in the House, though I'm pretty sure I've figured out the general areas of the other three by now. Not how to get in, or exactly where their entrances are or anything, but it doesn't take a high perception roll to notice that most Pecaris too young to cast their own drying charms come in to breakfast wet if its raining outside, for example."

"Anyway, that's why they gave you maps. Nobody expects you to have the whole school memorized after just one tour. I was consulting my map for weeks before I felt confident enough to leave it in my bag, and even then it was probably midterm before I felt safe leaving it in my dorm. I mean, you get the usual routine down pretty fast, but if you decide to go exploring or something, the map's a good thing to have with you. And these are prefect badges," she pointed hers out, pinned to her green school robes opposite the new Head Girl badge. "There's three prefects in each House, so twelve running around the school at any given time, and it's literally our job to help people out who need help, especially younger students, so just ask any of us for directions if you do get lost."

Deciding she had talked enough about how to resolve getting lost, she asked, "What are you looking forward to the most?" Christabel was an Aladren, so it was about even money that she'd bring up her favorite magic subject, but there had been clubs and Quidditch discussed in Orientation, and of course the tour would have let her see the library and MARS rooms, so getting involved with any of those or just generally exploring were still on the table, too.

    "Oh! Um, hi," said Christabel, wanting to slide right under her seat and hide forever after being caught staring. She took a deep breath and tried to carry on; she was supposed to make friends with... more

        Christabel was relieved to be able to talk about something she was certain about. "I'm really excited for Care of Magical Creatures," she said. "I can't have magical pets at home because my dad and I ... more
