So instead of doing anything else, I got obsessed with the Howls Moving Castle AU.
My college feels a little like Elsewhere U: it's in a town out in the middle of nowhere, the downtown area looks like it hasn't changed since the 50's but we have big box stores and chain restaurants, and my dorm is new but is right across from an old empty dorm that needs to be torn down because asbestos but can't because budget. Another dorm was actually torn down and the big empty field where it used to be feels like a liminal space. Also there's a castle. The math dept is in there.
