"I see myself in - a room," he says. "I don't recognize it, but it's nice. There's books, and a broom, and - potions things..."

He lapses into silence, staring at the mirror.

"...I don't think we should be here."

"...perhaps not. Does it - do anything, other than show us -?"

"If it does, I'm not sure I want to find out what," says Muninn, sounding uncharacteristically shaken. "Let's just go."

Permalink

"- okay, sure, let's."

Permalink

He takes off to go scout the corridors.

Permalink

Empty.

"This way."

She throws the mirror one last look over her shoulder then follows.

It seems like it is probably time to sneak Dayo back to her dorm and then go to bed, so that is what Muninn aims for.

Permalink

They run into no trouble on the way. Dayo is uncharacteristically subdued.

Permalink

So is Muninn.

Permalink

Victor is not much more subdued than usual, but.

Ron is up when they get back.

"Where've you been?" he whispers.

Permalink

"Dayo wanted to go exploring."

Permalink

"Oh, did you find anything cool?"

Permalink

 

"I'm not sure."

Permalink

"Why not?"

Permalink

"...We found a magic mirror that says it shows your heart's desire and it was - more upsetting than I'd expect a mirror like that to be."

Permalink

Blink. "I wanna see!"

Permalink

"—okay. I can take you there. Another night, though. I want to sleep."

Permalink

"Okay. Good night."

Permalink

"Goodnight."

He's still very torn over whether or not to ask Muninn what he saw that affected him so badly, but he certainly can't do that with Ron around, anyway. He goes to bed.

Permalink

The following day is a Sunday, though, so Victor can sleep in if he likes.

Permalink

Sleeping in always makes him nervous. He goes to breakfast merely on time as opposed to early; that's as in as he's willing to sleep.

Permalink

Ron is still asleep when he does, but around twenty minutes after Victor arrives at the Great Hall (during which time other students start flocking in) he gets there.
