"Hmm. I am not sure I am allowed to reveal to you, outsider, the secrets of our common room. Who even say such a place exists, hm?" he teased, trying at least to lighten her mood a little.

I think they give her the right house because of this," he added, lest Tatya think quiet politeness symptomatic of some dreadful disease, "Why do you ask this?"

      • Not yet....Tatiana, Fri Nov 23 21:09
        Tatiana shrugged, thinking she should be more reassured by Dorian’s estimation of Katya than she was. “Katya not so with me now,” said Tatiana. She paused for another moment, then added, “Katya acts... more

          "Aw, Tanushka," he put a comforting arm around her. He wondered at Katerina's strange behaviour. What books she might deem it necessary to hide from her sister. He was not aware of her reading beyond ... more

              "Not bad books. Lyssa seems a good person," he had no idea really, but she was a Teppenpaw and he doubted that she was doing anything nasty, nor did he want to get her in trouble over nothing. "But... more
