  • rowena: i'm looking over the plans
  • godric: yeah
  • rowena: what's this weird series of rooms accessible only by a hatch in a room on the right hand side of the third floor corridor
  • godric: oh that's for if we ever need to hide a priceless artifact for some reason
  • rowena: why would we hide a priceless artifact in a school
  • godric: safest place
  • rowena: fucking is it though?? there's a giant snake somewhere
  • [in the distance]
  • salazar: there's no snake you are wrong stop being wrong

So I thought this might make interesting story for @sixpenceee . I had just moved into my room as a freshman in college. I live in an apartment style dorm with three other girls, each person getting their own room. This was sometime early January so it was pretty cold. One morning I woke up and got ready for class as usual,(I like to open up my window to get fresh air) and when I went to open the drapes, I was met with the hand print in the first image. I didn’t know my roommates that well at the time and had a paranoia that they’d sneak into my room in the middle of the night to prank me, so I kept my room locked while I was out and when I went to bed. My room is also on the third floor and was kept locked before I moved in. 

I thought that it might have been one I had left somehow when I opened the window some day prior, so I placed my hand to the glass and left another print

The one on the left is mine. The one on the right is from an unknown source. As you can see, the unknown print has long, slender fingers and a more narrow palm. You can also see the little fine lines from the hand wrinkles where you can’t see any on mine due to the condensation build up. Much different from my pudgey little hand lol 

It’s still there now, but it’s getting hot so the glass won’t fog for it to show anymore. I’m not really freaked out by it, I was just surprised to see something like that first thing in the morning but I’m kinda glad it happened. It made for a cool story to tell haha
