The nine rowhouses a few blocks from Johns Hopkins Hospital stood for more than a century, through waves of immigration, two world wars, the upending of the city’s economy and a shift in its racial makeup.

The arched windows along the 900 block of North Bradford Street reflected both the boom and the decline of a great American city: the prosperous midcentury, when all nine households could afford the Formstone that covered their brick fronts; the tumult of 1968, when residents could smell the smoke from nearby riots; the white flight that would open the street to African Americans and the drug wars that would drive many of them away.

Since it was built on an old brickyard in 1905 by the “two-story king of East Baltimore,” hundreds of people have called the block home.

But only one of them was there to see that history end.

The Ravenclaw common room and dormitories are located in Ravenclaw Tower on the west side of the castle. The common room is circular, with arched windows that provide incredible views of the Hogwarts grounds, and a domed ceiling painted with stars like the night sky.

The halls of Dunwall Tower are steeped in silence but for a set of half-heard, harried footsteps, a single silhouette cutting across the angular, waning beams of watery sunlight spilling down the tiled floor. Hand fisted against hip, crinkling faintly with every added modicum of pressure, the crumpled slip of parchment held there damp with fear-sharp sweat

(Corvo pauses just before the final, arched window lining the hall, raising his hand to unfurl the missive once again. Please, come to my chambers. I need to speak with you. Unsigned, but he would recognize the slant of that spidery scrawl anywhere, and this, handed from servant to servant until it landed softly, soundlessly, upon Corvo’s desk; and that itself is an oddity. The Empress has never once hesitated to darken his doorway before; this new reticence speaks volumes of some aching wrongness, the edges of each letter jagged, as if kept steady only by some monumental force.)
