pathfinder • you cannot be caged • inconstant
Felicita Audrey Raven was a very curious individual. She would readily admit that half - or quite possibly more than half - that the trouble she and her twin, Artemisa, got into was because of her own curiosity. She longed to know how and why things worked and she was quite willing to do a lot to achieve the knowledge she was seeking at that single moment. Of course, today, it just so happened that the thing she was trying to figure out was how magical portraits work and how different were they from muggle ones. Of course she could easily figure out that muggle photos do not move while magic ones does and the probable cause was likely magic. But how it worked was what she was trying to figure out at the moment as she stared at one of the many portraits lining up the walls of the second floor corridor. It wasn't the first she had wondered of course, but right now her curiosity was definitely not overshadowed by the fear of Uncle Liam, Auntie Ai and Mummy catching her. Sure, if the professors caught her it'd be trouble but that was definitely no biggie at all. Besides, the portraits were not of her ancient relatives so they weren't very stern-looking or scary for that matter so it was a lot easier to wonder how they worked. She wished Artemisa were here right now to help figure it out. But well, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. And right now, that was definitely taking down one of the portraits to dismantle it and figure out how it worked. Felicita approached one of the smaller moving portraits and placed her hands on the frame trying to gauge its weight, this was going to take a while.
