The Astronomy Tower is the tallest tower at Hogwarts Castle. It is where students study the stars and planets through their telescopes in Astronomy lessons with Professor Aurora Sinistra. This is usually done at midnight, when the stars are best seen. The tower is generally out-of-bounds except for classes.

After the feast, Lysander and Lorcan excused themselves from the dining hall, as Lorcan was feeling ill. Lysander always loved to look up at the stars, and so made his way up the moving staircases over to the Astronomy Tower. In the Tower, you could see the Scottish highlands for miles, and at night, the clearest view of the night sky around. It made him feel safe, knowing he was one of many.

"I thought I'd find you here." Pandora said as she stepped into the Astronomy
tower. She approached her brother, barefoot and holding her shoes in one hand, "You left
without eating dessert. So I saved you some apple pie."

"Lorcan felt ill, I helped him up to the dormitory and then decided to come up here." Sliding his hands into his pockets, Lysander looked up at the twinkling stars. "They're gorgeous tonight." He remarked.

"Mama says the brightest stars that shine over us are the souls of people who died
protecting Hogwarts." No one would ever deny that Pandora was Luna's daughter. Same hair,
only much curlier, same light blue eyes and same unique outlook.

Lysander and his identical twin, however, looked like their father. The Scamander family was, for generations, all dark curls and thick eyelashes. The only thing that was entirely Luna's was their moon-colored eyes. He looked up at the twinkling stars, remembering the memorial the school was planning to erect next year. It would mark the twentieth anniversary of the battle, and would have hundreds of names of former students, regardless of their stance during the war.

"Do you ever wonder what it was like?" She asked, her eyes glazing over the way
they do when she has a deep thought. "Before the war, I mean. Was it different back then?"

"Before the war, Muggles didn't know about wizards." said Lysander. They were still largely under wraps, but no amount of memory charms could clear every muggle in the world's head. "Not that they know very much about us now. A few children's books are getting close, though." A Muggle found their way into Hogsmeade last summer, as well. He remembered that event well.

The astronomy tower was off limits to students outside of class. During Mia's
first year she'd asked Professor Sinistra why. The professor said it was because the tower
was dangerous and reminded her that Headmaster Dumbledore fell. Mia replied that
Dumbledore only fell because Severus Snapped hit him with the killing curse. Mia currently
say at the edge of the tower, her bare feet dangling off the edge. It was nearly three am
so no one would be out looking for her. She propped her chin on the guard rail and took a
long drag off her cigarette. She pulled down the sleeves of her oversized sweater and
wiped a year from her eye. She'd been having nightmares again. She'd woken up with a
start, body drenched in sweat and salty tears streaming down her cheek. But Mia would die
before she let anyone see her cry so she ran as fast as she could to the tower.

Lily, too, had wandered up into the astronomy tower late in the night, her
robes wrinkled and hanging loosely off of her petite form. With her clothes untucked and
her hair a mess of curls framing her face, she suddenly seemed so much younger - one
tended to forget she was a young, just-recently-turned 14 year old. Then again, it wasn't
all that big of a matter, because Lily preferred blending into the background anyways.

And so, Little Lily Luna was shocked to round the stairs and spy her best friend sitting
across the tower, half of her body dangling over the edge of the cold stone. She does her
best to hide the forming bruises on her collarbone and shuffles over, plopping down at her
friends side and pulling her legs criss-cross-applesauce. She puts her hand out,
presumably for a cigarette. "Was it the one about the wolves again?"

Mia nods but remained silently. She pulls a pack of smokes and her lighter and
handed it over to Lily. She was usually reluctant to encourage Lily's bad habits but she
really couldn't say much when she'd been a few years younger than Lily when she started
smoking. Mia tucks a blonde piece of hair behind her ear and sighs, "They're never gonna
end are they? The nightmares. I'm gonna be eighty, still dreaming about wolves that rip my
guts out."

ooc: jesus sorry you should see the drama going on in the pines rn

ic:
"They'll stop, eventually. Mine have." Mostly. She had this recurring nightmare that she
was stranded in the middle of the ocean, drowning. She couldn't swim but she wasn't being
sucked under the water, either - she just floated with her head out of the water and she
could feel scaly things brushing her feet and although the water burned her eyes and
throat she never drowned. 
Lily flicks the lighter and listens for the potassium sizzle at the end of the cigarette
as its lit - refreshing, and calming. Her brothers would kill her and Mia if they knew.
Fuck, Mia and her brothers would kill her if they knew.

"No offense, Double L, but you also didn't have a fucked up childhood." Mia said
lying back against the cold stone floor. She folded her arms over chest. "If it's not the
wolves, it's my dad. It's not my dad it's my mom. Face it. I'm fucked."

"Come on, that's not fair." Lily Luna finishes her cigarette and tosses it,
then literally rolls over into Mia, her tiny frame like a feather as she rests her chin on
the arms of the older girl. "Shit was hard for me too, just in a different way." She was
forever going to be stuck with the title of 'The Daughter of The Boy Who Lived'. 

"But I don't want to talk about all of that. Is that Hufflepuff boy still giving you
trouble? Because if he's peeking up your skirts again, I'll beat him up for you." She
flashes Mia a pearly, sincere grin and there's a hint of purple that pokes out of her
shirt - oops. Lily Luna doesn't notice.

"I know you think you had it rough and I'm not saying you didn't." Mia sighed,
"I'd just take being The Daughter of The Boy Who Lived over The Daughter of the Man Who
Tried To Kill The Minister. Any fucking day." Mia turned to face Lily, catching a glimpse
of purple

"What the hell happened to you?" Mia asked pulling at the fabric of her shirt to get a
closer look at the bruise.
