There are many stairways designed to afford the user every opportunity to make an elegant entrance. This isn't one of them. Rickety, twisted, missing crucial flagstones and with only an occasional segment of crumbling balustrade, someone might as well have gone the whole way, and just inscribed over the entrance arch, "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here".
Beyond this staircase, it is clear, lie things you'd rather not have to write a report about. Not merely a dungeon, then, perchance a full-scale oubliette.

She had been dying to play something away from everyone, even if it was in a staircase. With her guitar out, Nyx was playing a simple melody as she sat with her back on the wall, hoping no one would walk down the stairs.
Danijela was hoping to get to Potions early, which was odd for her. It was really just so she could beat the swarm of other first years headed down the narrow staircase to the Dungeons. That shit wasn't chill. While she walked at a relatively slow pace, she suddenly noticed that a ginger girl was sitting on the steps ahead of her. "Oh. Hey." She said, giving her a small nod. "What are you playing? The song, not instrument."
"How rude," she said with a huff, but she really didn't mind. "Well, if you don't mind, I need to get down to Potions." While she would've stuck around for a conversation, the other girl seemed definitely not interested.

"Greek goddess of night. Nox is the Roman version of it. I don't get it to much cause not many kids want to talk about how their name is the same as some goddess. Not a good conversation, if you ask me."
Dani shrugged. "Narrow staircase," she responded quickly with a bored expression. "Anyways, see you in Potions," she said after identifying her as a girl she had seen in class before. Then, she walked over her, accidentally stepping on her toes yet also not apologizing.
