Gryffindordorms


The Gryffindor Dormitories are the only dorms in Hogwarts that can house up to four students per room, strictly within their respected gender/gender identified sections. To reach the dorms, you must go up a winding stone stairwell with large bay windows that look onto Hogwarts Grounds.

Remember, every studrnt is to be in bed by 10:00 pm sharp, with the lights out. There will be no talking and any students caught out of bed will immediately get detention unless they can provide a very good reason for their nocturnal activities.

Roleplay

Ida and Karina

Ida 3rd Year

Ida Buchwald Gryffindor Third Year
-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 18:15, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

She was sitting on her bed, reading a letter from home.


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor

She hadn't spoken to her new dorm mate. She knew who she was and what her family stood for. She was sure the other girl being here was no coincidence...but her being put into the same House and dorm seemed a bit too much to be arranged. She decided she'd try diplomacy. "Letter from home?"

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 18:28, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

She glanced up. She knew what she was to do here. But there was no need to be nasty... she was merely collecting information. "Yes. My mother sends weekly letters."


Karina Age 13-2

She'd give a small nod. "It is nice to hear from home."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 19:25, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

Curiously, she asked, "Does your mother write often?"


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 19:27, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
She'd answer smoothly. "I get letters from my parents about once a month. Time restrictions due to matters of state you understand."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 19:29, December 4, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded. "Of course," she said smoothly.


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 19:34, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
She'd give the other girl a small nod. "I'm sure you enjoy the more frequent correspondence."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 00:41, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

She nodded slowly. "It's a lot of my mother regaling tales of the various parties she's planning with mothers who have sons my age," she said with a serene smile. "But there's nuggets of love in there."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 13:33, December 5, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod in understanding and sympathy. "Seems in this day and age parents arranging marriages for their children would be a thing of the past."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 15:32, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

She shrugged. "It's a duty. Marrying well is still ideal, no matter the circumstance. It's just more paramount, and also more difficult, for people of our station. So arranging one makes things simpler."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 15:50, December 5, 2019 (UTC)
"In the mind maybe more ideal but more of a weight on the heart."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 18:10, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

She shrugged. "It's duty to family."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 18:23, December 5, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "True and while duty to family is critical duty to self also plays an important role. To completely ignore oneself only weakens the person and therefore the family."


Ida 3rd Year

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 18:30, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

"Which is why I'm allowed to meet with the boys before to see who I might be best suited with. It's an arranged marriage, not a blind one."

OOC: That wasn't it, actually. It's like continuous or something but I feel like there's a G in the word somewhere. Idk.


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 18:34, December 5, 2019 (UTC)
"Which is fair but we all know meeting someone is not knowing someone. Besides that by the time we are of marrying age you or they might have changed significantly."

OOC: Oops...well now I feel stupid.


Ida 3rd Year

Ida Buchwald Gryffindor Third Year
-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 19:22, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

She shrugged. "That's no different from people changing over the course of a marriage, either." She looked at Karina. "You mean to tell me your parents are letting you marry for love?"


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 19:30, December 5, 2019 (UTC)
She'd choose her words very carefully. "To my knowledge that has not yet been decided. I have been to some functions where I believe I was intentionally introduced to some proper and desirable matches. There is, of course, always the question of if one can actually manage to find love and then if that person is actually a proper match. I think..." She'd pause. "I hope that when that time comes I am able to make my own choice...the choice that will both best suit my own need and the needs of my...our people."


Ida 3rd Year

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 19:35, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

She frowned. "You should marry a Dane," she said. "You know nothing of our people," she said, reemphasizing Karina's poorly chosen word. Karina was Norway's princess, not Denmark's, as far as she was concerned.


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor

She'd nod her head accepting the mild reproof. "I will admit I do know more about Norway than Denmark though I was raised in both places. That being said I agree that from a political standpoint that would be one of the smartest positions to take. Having someone with more intimate knowledge of Denmark would ensure a more balanced position as well as ensuring someone other than my Father would be able to advise and provide an additional viewpoint on issues I might not otherwise have."

-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 13:25, December 6, 2019 (UTC)

"I've got an older brother," she said with a slow smile. She wondered if her mother had considered that at all.


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor

She actually wouldn't be able to keep the surprised and slightly disgusted look from her face before hiding it behind something more neutral. "Given your family's know...feelings of mine I can only assume you jest. Beside that would that not undermine your family's view of separating the magic and non-magical ruling bodies?"


Ida 3rd Year

Ida Buchwald Gryffindor Third Year
-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 15:27, December 6, 2019 (UTC)

"I highly doubt you would marry a Muggle," she scoffed. "And even if you did, there would always be magical blood in the veins of the royal."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 15:40, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
She'd frown. "I agree...but I thought your family wanted to separate the two worlds leaving our family ruling the magical world and having some sort of non-magical government to rule the non-magical world."

OOC: I'm pretty sure this isn't what her family wants but I think it would be Karina's perception of it.


Ida 3rd Year

Ida Buchwald Gryffindor Third Year
-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 18:17, December 6, 2019 (UTC)

"We do," she said. "Your family holds entirely too much power by ruling both. In nearly every other country, Muggle and magical governments are separate."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 19:03, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod, her information correct. "Then by that logic marrying your brother would do nothing to further those goals. It would be worse than if I did marry someone without magic, strengthening the magical bloodline."


Ida 3rd Year

Ida Buchwald Gryffindor Third Year
-The man may be the head of the home, but the woman is the neck, and she can twist him any way she wants.

 – 19:31, December 6, 2019 (UTC)

She snorted. "If you think about the problem simply, then yes. That is the most basic of conclusions to draw."


Karina Age 13-2
Karina Nordskov - Thirteen Year Old Norwegian Princess Gryffindor
Send Me an Owl! - 19:40, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
She'd gesture as if recognizing Ida in a classroom. "Well then, by all means enlighten me on the complexity of the situation that is beyond my comprehension."
