In the short time Maddison had been attending the University the library had quickly become a safe haven from the busy campus. City life was not treating her well, she was over cautious at all times, unless she was in her room or situated with her back to a wall. Much like she was now. It hadn’t taken her long to find a desk in a corner of the library, where most didn’t venture to. It was nice, almost like her secret space.

 

She had numerous textbooks spread out on the table, a notebook filled to the brim in front of her and earphones plugged into both ears playing music through her magical adjusted music player that she was humming lightly to. Maddison planned to spend a couple of hours here before heading home. As much as she didn’t mind her roommate, the other girl made it hard to study in peace there.

 

Those plans quickly came crashing down around her when she felt another’s presence take up the other side of the table. Slowly she raised her head from her work to decide if this person was worth fleeing from.

While Tallygarunga had been an intensive study life for him when he considered the various other things he'd gotten involved in to eat at his time, no amount of preparation could've made him ready for the difference in demands that came with the call of University life. On top of the various types of trainings he needed to perform between Quidditich, Law Enforcement training, and keeping up with the  disciplined demands of the dojo back in town? There'd been a very slim time frame for him to properly study and there hadn't been enough of a sense of quiet for him back at his own dorm room. The mates he shared it with had been the loud and party type which just didn't jive with him when so much of his life had been on the line compared to many others. 

There didn't seem that many places for him to choose from to really get the space necessary except for one area that seemed to be quite covered with textbooks as it was already. But there'd been enough space for him to work, he didn't need a lot and the subject that needed to be studied the most didn't hold too many volumes. He placed his back down next to the chair and slid into the seat casually without plopping onto the seat. He didn't want to be rude to someone else who seemed to need their own wealth of room and silence to study and catch up. 

Tyson proceeded to unzip his bag and pulled out a thick notebook, a textbook that had been labeled, 'Trans-Mogrify That! The Importance in Enforcement!'. Transmogrification had always been a tricky class of spells and something that needed to be trained and honed to an adept skill and practice to be counted amongst the many well trained Auror's or even the Elites that seemed to excel beyond that on the Auror Force. At first, he hadn't intended to look up towards the young woman until he felt the presence of eyes on him. His own gaze slowly lifting up as he stared back for a moment. 

His arm rose up half way, a simple wave of his hand in a casual greeting. "Yo', What's up?" It'd have been rude for him to not say anything especially since he'd taken full notice of her presence. One hand slid the tips of his fingers along the edge of his book to open it up and the other extended out towards her for a slightly formal introduction. "Name's Tyson, I hope you don't mind me taking a quick spell here to study."

Would saying ‘I know’ be considered rude? Probably. While Maddison hadn’t been overly involved with the Tallygarunga social programs, she had been pulled to her fair share of Quidditch games while there. Thanks housemates… But had she expected to ever be talked to by Tyson McKennis, the Bourke Chaser? No. She hadn’t. Especially not so long after finishing.

 

Slowly she lifted one of her own hands and gave his a very light, and very quick shake. “Maddison” she replied as her hand was withdrawn back to her book on magical creature biology. “I don’t mind” she added, eyes dropping back down. Did she mind? Completely. But she didn’t want to be rude. And if he needed a quiet space to study then she shouldn’t be the one to get in the way of it. Studying was important.

The young woman looked familiar, he couldn't place his finger on the reason behind it. Maybe she'd been someone that had been at Tallygarung as well, it hadn't been an impossible thought or possibility. With the premliminary formality out of the way he gave a casual nod. "Maddison? Nice to meet ya'. And thanks, it's been rough tryin' to find a good place." At least she didn't seem to mind! Though she'd been a quiet sort or had it been more of the anti-social schtick? He rubbed the side of his face a moment and lowered his gaze to read across the several lines of his textbook, writing out a few notes onto the opened notebook with a few important bullet points both in his personal understanding of the topic to the subject along with more precise steps towards honing transmogrification methods. 

Tyson's gaze lifted up for a moment to catch the edge of her book, had that been something about magical creature biology? He allowed his head to tilt a bit more to get a full reading, or as much as he could anyways. It'd been a subject that he would have to take eventually to be aware of the various types of creatures he'd encounter, bother dangerous and otherwise, as a means to properly identify. "Studying up biology? Planning on being a, uh, Magizoologist?" He found that the it'd been an honorable and important career, the environment had been in danger from not just encountering the various societies and the choices needed to take to manage things but also from the sudden changes of the world around them. 

"One of the courses that will pop up on my list next year or the year after I think too." A hand rubbed the top of his head as he chuckled weakly. "Could use someone knowledgeable about to help with a brush up before then, ya' know, get a bit of extra knowledge in to prepare." Maybe he'd been trying to do too much, however, he always enjoyed to be excessively prepared as a way to keep himself disciplined and ahead of the curve than many would've expected. The more he'd been aware of the better he could work around the various classes, after all.
