The Alternate RoomThe Alternate Room is located in the Otherworlde Castle, on the third floor. Due the way that the castle's rooms are fluid, its location varies, but it's always on the fourth floor and it's a large, heavy wooden door marked by a carved pentagram on the outside. A large, dark steel ring makes up the handle, and if pulled open, a student can make their way inside.
The inside of the room is approximately nine feet by ten feet, and it appears bare when you enter it. The stone walls and floors promise no entertainment. However, if you walk into the room and stand in the center, the room's appearance will start to shift. The walls will slowly disappear and the floor beneath you will transform into ground. The room itself is a portal, and it transports the person standing in it into the Alternate Realm.
In the Alternate Realm, the world is constantly in flux, affected by the thoughts, dreams, and pasts of the people who are in it. Those with stronger emotions and ties t

ELM 101 - Exploding A GolemIn theory, finding out a crystal from a golem seemed pretty easy.ELM 101 - Exploding A Golem by Spirit-Of-Cat
In reality, it was harder than anything Zylo had ever attempted. Her first thought, as the others went around and talked to the golems, was to just wait out her turn and till nobody was left, take her crystal. But then she had a feeling that it would not end well for her, so reluctantly she made her way to a random golem, and asked for the object.
Only to see it shake it’s head and lumber around. All these golems were completely identical-so Zylo thought-therefore she had no way of actually counting it off and waiting till the end. Instead the dark fairy walked up to another golem and asked for the same thing.
“Do you have my crystal?”
Just for it to ignore her and walk away.
Well, she guessed that meant a refusal too.
Taking her chair again, she concentrated on her crystal. Surely there would a way to get it without asking each and every golem in this place.
Then she remembered her first assignment.

Of course, that choice hadn’t applied to Zylo.
The moment the words had been said, people started running and selecting the one they wanted-something which required you to be fast, speedy and push through others.
Most people called dibs on the least damaged ones-the ones that would require less work, and heal easily.
However, as she really didn’t want to go and push her way through the crowd-and she was a bit lazy-the dark fairy resigned herself to scribbling drawings on the margins of her notebook, knowing that she’d get the worst. It was a known thing-get first, get best, get last, get worst.
But hey, at least she’d try her best. Part of it was up to her, but as she glanced up and saw the students dispersing with their mannequins, Zylo gave a short sigh before stretching and going to pick out the last one. After fumbling for a few minutes and straining her eyes wide in the dim light, she caught sight of somebody at the farthest e
OTHERWORLDE: CRS 101 March AssignmentShe sat on the floor of her brother’s dorm room, her legs spread at a slight angle as she hunched forward, examining the paper that was off to her right a little ways. In her left hand she held a doll of her likeness while the other gripped a rounded piece of chalk, poised over the wooden floorboards as she looked over the diagram she was basing the sign off of. She wasn’t the best artist but she was confident that she would be able to reproduce the hex sign more or less exactly. After all, mere copying didn’t require the imagination actually creating the doll had. Still, she didn’t want the spell to go wrong in the slight possibility that it would damage her brother’s—or worse, Conrad’s— property. She had to be more careful than usual if she was casting spells in unfamiliar territory.OTHERWORLDE: CRS 101 March Assignment by Ibbledibble
Entering the dorm room had been easy enough; she knew her brother usually left the window unlocked and of course it had been easy for Lacie to levitate up
OW: They Meet AgainIt was a tedious task, getting ready for a dance she had no reason to go to. She had obtained no date, nor was she graduating this term or knew the graduates personally, and thus she saw no reason to attend. But she was to go anyway. For some days now she had not exited her room for anything that was deemed unnecessary. She barely needed food, so there was the odd trip for that, and the most she left for was to go to the bathrooms. As well as get boxes for her things.OW: They Meet Again by zstew2
On the night of the dance Emily was going to finish packing her things and take them to the Asylum dorm, where she would be residing unless she happened to become a student teacher. She would then spend the rest of the night setting out her things in her room how she liked them, and hopefully, not interact with anyone within the dorm.
It wasn’t as if she had anyone to talk to, anyway.
Not since she had met the group of…. Unusual Intermediate and Beginner students not long ago while she had been walking back to
