[Nov MP] behold the hordes of beauty [tsubaki]

A quite year at Durmstrang was an impossibility. Edyta had assumed that moving the entire school to Sweden would be eventful enough to last for her seventh year, but it seemed that fate had other ideas. Already there had been the draugr invasion at the port, something that had given Edyta nightmares after she had barely escaped with her life. As much as she loved the sea, she knew it would be a long time before she strolled along a stony shore by herself again. So when she read about the Reindeer Festival it seemed like the perfect excursion. Free transportation, the opportunity to practise speaking Swedish, no alcohol (she had grinned when she'd read that part), endorsed by the Swedish Minister for Magic (he seemed like a nice man, playing with the orphaned children and baby reindeer like that) and no documentation needed. And best of all, because it was only a couple of hundred kilometers from the school, there was a special excursion day planned where any students who wished would be allowed to attend!

But no sooner had she started planning for the festival than there was yet more drama! The first Edyta knew was when she came down for breakfast one morning and discovered chaos. Although she rose early, already there were many more Klyks present that she would have expected to see. For reasons nobody had been able to figure out, their common room and dorms had been flooded due to a cracked underwater window. The majority of the Klyks had taken refuge in the Grand Hall, others were in the hospital wing suffering from shock, secondary drowning and various other injuries. Their quarters effectively out of bounds, it had fallen upon the Krovs to welcome their rivals - if welcome was the right word - into their own common rooms and dormitories.

Instead of the normal two girls she shared with, Edyta was now sharing with five others; extra beds having been pushed into the room and their occupants assigned almost at random. It was sheer chance that she was still sharing with only upperclassmen; at least one of the sixth year dorms now also housed first year Klyks, though at least they were too intimidated to disturb the older students' studies. But it had meant that she had been able to get to know @Hanaoka Tsubaki , the Koldovstoretz transfer student she had first spoken with at the beginning of term, a little better.

In fact, they had decided to head out to see the reindeer together. Edyta had made the suggestion, describing the long history of the event and the rarity of the creatures, and had been delighted that the younger girl had agreed to go with her. Now the day had finally arrived. The festival had been running for a week already as Edyta donned her warmest clothes (including two pairs of thick socks) and picked up her thick winter cloak before pushing her trunk back under her bed and turning sideways in order to avoid knocking into the extra beds as she left her dorm. Once out in the common room, a little early, she settled herself in a comfortable chair, taking a book at random from the closest bookshelf as she waited for her friend.

It was interesting to learn about another culture. The ingrained need for politeness and honour wasn't something Edyta had come across before, but she rather liked it. She supposed it made life easier in some ways, a bit like having specific rules to follow that you knew from a very early age. "You get used to the cold, in time" she said, wondering if that really was true. Poland was warm enough in the summer months, but Edyta had been perfectly used to snow during her childhood, so it hadn't been such a terrible culture shock when she'd started at Durmstrang. Nothing like the shock of needing to study in a language she barely understood, anyway. "Though I must admit, I don't know how cold it gets here - or how dark. Before, when Durmstrang was at Novaya Zemlya, we were inside the Arctic circle and during the winter, some days it didn't get properly light at all..." she said this thoughtfully, realising for the first time that she wasn't entirely certain how far North the school was now. It was a mark of her acceptance of life at Durmstrang that the idea of an hour or so of daylight at midwinter sent a thrill of anticipation through her.

Her mind stayed on that subject only for a moment longer though, because now they were looking at reindeer, eyes scanning the horizon for what appeared to be little more than dark dots, moving slowly in a fairly uniform manner. The light reflecting off the snow was bright, and after only a few seconds Edyta was squinting. The landscape was stunning, and for the first time the seventh year was glad the school had moved to Sweden if this was what the winter had in store.

When she looked away, she could see the after effect of the bright light even when she blinked, and she was glad for the suggestion of going to visit the reindeer fawns. She frowned thoughtfully, a little confused by Tsubaki's comment about the big fat man until she figured out what the other girl was talking about. "Oh - ?wi?ty Miko?aj!" she exclaimed, the Polish name no doubt sounding unfamiliar to the Japanese girl "he is also called...let me think...Saint Nicholas in some countries, I think. He visits us on December 6th, then on Christmas eve, Gwiazdor also brings gifts" she paused, the grinned "well, that's what the small children believe, anyway" As she spoke, she had been looking around, and it seemed that the direction where there were several buildings was the most sensible way to go.

"Shall we try over there?" she asked, gesturing "I expect they keep the reindeer babies away from the main herd...perhaps somewhere a little warmer. And if they're not there, we can ask someone for directions" she suggested hopefully.
