Grand Staircase

Moving stairs

The Grand Staircase (also called the Marble Staircase) is a massive structure in Hogwarts which is located in the Grand Staircase Tower. It is mainly used to access each floor in the castle, including the Basement and Dungeons. There are hundreds of portraits on the walls of the Grand Staircase Tower. Some of the portraits reveal hidden/secret passageways within the school. The multiple staircases move from one platform to another in a sequence that ends at the seventh floor. The moving staircases came from an idea by Rowena Ravenclaw, who was one of the founders of Hogwarts.

Recently he had thought about starting a youtube channel. After all, many vine and musical.ly stars crossed over to the platform and gained fame. That is what prompted his visit to the staircase that day- or really, night. The first step would be to draw attention to himself. Next, he could post his own content. The eleven year old had it all planned out and figured, this would sure help him make friends. His phone was already set up, and all that was left was for him to get on the sled an older year had provided, and slide down the stairs. Sawyer is terrified, but knows broken bones will heal. He sets the sled on the edge of the stairs. "Here I go," he murmurs, before pushing off.

That morning had been one where Roshani just really did not want to get up for anything, but she'd done it anyway. Trudging up the stairs after breakfast in order to get her books for Transfiguration, imagine her surprise as some random kid came flying towards her in a sled. "What the hell??" She yelled, diving out of the way and bracing herself for pain in case he cracked his skull open or something.

He leans forward, being as aerodynamic as he can. It feels... indescribable, like nothing he's ever done. Why don't more people do this? Almost as if in answer, his visual radar picks up a person walking up the steps, seconds away from collision. She dives one way, he swerves the other. "Look out!" Sawyer crashes against the staircase railing, holding onto the bars for dear life. The sled rebounds and goes tumbling down the staircase, breaking into pieces as it hits the bottom. The boy is breathing heavily. "Are-ah, you-ah, okay?" He tries to turn his head, but flecks red fly onto his eyes, so he can't see. Sawyer assumes it came from the pain in his head. It hadn't been a smooth survival.

She winced, both at the injury and the crash of the sled, and pressed a hand to her own head, where a mirror pain had begun to blossom. The delights of synesthesia. "No," she answers bluntly, "and I'm not even gonna bother asking because you're clearly not."

"I-I'm fine, really," he gives a fake laugh that ends in a groan of pain. At least he had recorded everything, so it wasn't a worthless flight down the stairs. The thought crosses his mind that the girl might hate him, which only leads to another wince. "Wasn't my...intention to hit anyone. Sorry. Didn't th-think anyone would be coming up." Sawyer rolls himself over into a sitting position onto the stairs, putting his back against it and pulling his shirt up to stop bleeding. His ankle hurts too, probably a casualty of a rebounding sled and a little bit of twisting. In that moment, he can't remember if he actually did press record.

She limped over to where he'd fallen, realising he probably needed medical attention. "You didn't hit me, it's okay," she answered. "I just have this thing where I feel what other people feel, so basically you chose the wrong person to not hit." She glanced around to see if anybody had rushed to help them, but simply caught sight of the mangled sled. "I think your sled's about as smashed as your skull."

Do it for the vine. What a silly phrase to get stuck in his head. Due to the shirt being over his head, he still can't see her, but he does hear her words clearly. "Feel what other people feel? Isn't that just legilimency?" He remembers his dad briefly mentioning it, but the exact definition escapes him. Although she had seemed rather petite, he supposes to have a nack for legilimency means she must be older. Basically, he had almost killed his senior. Ahhh, why me??? her tone doesn't seem to be condescending, so maybe he still has a chance to make a friend....? Even he gets tired of his own desperation sometimes. "I mean, I can't see it from inside the shirt, but I'll trust your word. At least my brain isn't falling out, although that would've made a killer video."

"No, synesthesia. Hold on, did you film this? Wow." She studied him for a second with a grudging sort of respect. Her head still ached, but she remembered that he was actually bleeding still. "You know, we should probably get the nurse at some point."

Sawyer holds his head a little tighter. "I think? Can't remember if I hit record anymore, but it was supposed to be a video." A small groan escapes him, more so from pain than the thought of a nurse. "I guess... If you can lead me to the infirmary, I think I'll be fine." Unless he trips over the stairs, but he doesn't want to think about the possibility.

"Kay, if you didn't hit record that's gonna be a bit shit," she mused, unable to keep from laughing a little. Damn, Hogwarts was weird. "You're probably gonna have to let go of your shirt for a second," she decided. She wasn't about to let him walk on his own, after all.
