Spencer ☆ Sixth Year ★ LilyCat
16 year old Halfbreed Fairy ☆ She/Her

This was the right place, she was fairly certain of it. Aisling had only visited the school a couple of times, with Caitlin, so that she could take a look around, as well as meet the Headmaster. She didn't even really understand the concept still. She was certain that she had grown up just being taught what she needed to know by a couple of mentors, and hardly surrounded by other young people. Could she even recall the face of another that had been her own age? It felt like the harder she tried, the more blurred everything was from before her emergence in the mortal realm with her mother.

It was still strange, a little daunting, but she felt at least confident enough that she could handle it. It was an adjustment, that was all. That included learning to translate between the written language she knew and English and vice-versa. She had been receiving a lot of tutoring from Cate for that, thankfully. Still, it never hurt to study a little extra, and she'd been told that those who were in the group she'd been assigned could gather in this place underground near their sleeping quarters.

Aisling didn't have a dorm herself, for obvious reasons. But she had made a note of where they were, and the communal area near it. And so she had made her way here while she had some free time. No class right now, and Cate was busy, so she made her way toward one of the couches in the room with her translation book, set on being able to at least read English properly, even if writing was a task.

Except the teenager hadn't expected that as soon as she sat down on the cushion, she would suddenly be launched straight out of it a small ways, to land on her rear. She blinked as she looked around. Which pixie was responsible for that?? She furrowed her brow and looked at the chair again as her lips pursed. She would not be put off, this was one seat that would be tamed. And so she dove at it, jumping and landing on her knees on the cushion, intent to grab a hold, except the back reclined before the seat launched her once again, the redhead landing on her rear gracelessly once again.

Spencer ☆ Fourth Year ☆ Spencer Quidditch Team Keeper✩ Kirupachi
14 year old Halfblood Human ☆ She/Her

Brooke wasn't someone who had a room in Tallygarunga either, in her opinion regrettably so. The ever so cheerful Spencer was made to stay home by her parents so to be able to take care of the dog, Peach, as well as her little brother. She wished she could be surrounded by people like she'd be if she boarded, but she understood her responsibility and didn't fight it. Of course, that didn't mean she never had any business in the common room; in fact, that very same day she had some pairs project to do with a fellow Spencer fourth year that somehow hadn't ended in disaster. And who was she to complain about it?

It was time to go home. Hanging her bag over a shoulder and bidding goodbye to her friend with a free hand, she exited the dorm room and closed its door, walking at a leisure pace towards the Common Room that would then lead to the exit. She came into view just in time to see a redhead being ejected off of a couch, landing flat on her rear in what looked to be a painful landing. For a moment Brooke grimaced but the expression was quickly replaced with the urge to laugh, and she bit her lower lip not to do so.

She couldn't hold that laughter when the girl had attempted the stunt a second time, only to be thwarted the same way. The chuckle escaped for a couple seconds before she covered her mouth, struggling not to let out any more of it; letting go, she held up a finger as if asking for a moment to regain her own composure, clearing her throat while doing so.

"Sorry about that." Was she? It had been pretty funny. "But, you know what they say about trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, right?" Brooke had never seen that girl before, now that she thought about it. If someone had jinxed the couch, it was quite a harsh manner to be introduced to the Spencer House, yet a truly Spencer manner nonetheless.
