Magical School RP!

Magical School RP!

Petrichor Academy sits high on a cliff somewhere in an undiscovered part of Scotland, on the border between the mediocore and the magical.  The Academy has been an institute of education and magic for ages.  Here students learn things like alchemy and rune-magic alongside math and literature.  Petrichor Academy's student body and faculty are made up of both humans and magical beings.

The school has three Houses- House Kelpie, House Leprechaun, and House Roc.  Unlike other house system such as the Hogwarts Houses, Petrichor's houses do not determine dorm arrangements, sports teams, or tight social structures, and the Houses do not compete exept during the school's annual Midsummer Festival games.  Instead, these Houses represent their students' unique pursuit of knowledge and exploration, and the path they will take after graduation.  Each House has a designated faculty leader, one or two specialized classes, and at the end of the year partakes a Crusade- a House-wide quest that may be something such as finding an ancient relic or solving a mystery plauging the land.

House Kelpie represents those who seek mystery and discovery, House Leprechaun represents those who seek innovation and imagination, and House Roc represents those who seek glory and adventure.


This is the first RP I've ever made, so I'm excited!  Feel free to help shape the world of Petrichor Academy and let me know if you have any questions!  Here's the form for students-

Shannon walked slowly down the long corridors. The opposite way everyone else had gone. She had wanted some time alone. She ran a hand along the stone wall as she walked, gazing around herself in awe. It really was magnificent. Suddenly, she yawned so wide her head nearly split in two. She looked down at her watch and felt a twinge of guilt it was far later than she had realized. She sighed, turned around and started to try and find her way back. But it wasn't that easy.
She hadn't really been paying attention as she walked along each corridor looked different and completely strange. Shannon wasn't really worried, though. She often got lost. "I suppose I'd better rest her for the night," she mumured in her soft voice. She laid down on the ground, feet pulled up to her chest.

I ran a hand through my golden hair slowly turning black. if someone saw me, it would be a very awkward conversation. 

stop thinking about it. you never know, there could be mind readers here.

I took a deep breath and ducked into a side corridor, almost crashing into someone. "ah! sorry, got to go!" I yelped, hoping whoever it was didn't see my shapeshifting curse.

"who are you?" the person said.  

I looked back, keeping my face in the shadow so that I would be hidden. "my name... is Summer." I lied. my name now was Starling. "who are you?" I asked, careful to keep my voice from slipping into the quieter, deeper night shift.


sorry if it is a little short.

I walk into my dorm, cheeks glowing with excitement. There is so much magic, I can just feel it, like electricity in the air. Light sparkles down from a stained-glass window in crystal triangles and spills onto the floor. There are wall-hangings and elaborately embroidered sheets on the beds.

My roommates don't appear to be here yet, so I dump my bag on one of the beds next to the window. I don't have a watch, and there isn't a clock in sight. I am about to go looking for one when I hear a noise outside the room. I walk to the door and peek around it cautiously.

i'm walking to my dorm. the noise of a bag being thrown on a bed comes from the room. 

maybe I should peek really sneakily to see who it is.

I peeked around the corner and came eye-to-eye to a girl with bright gold eyes. I yelp and spring backwards involuntarily, reflexes kicking in. the girl looks almost as suprised as I am feeling. "hi?" I say. "um. Flamarestii, right?" i say. she nods.

"i was actually going to look for one of my roomates, actually." Flamarestii says. 

"well, you found one." I say, smiling. at least, i hope smiling. it's hard to smile when my one magical ability is... no. i'm not thinking about it, there is a mind reading student here.

which will make it hard for me to have my ability at all.

we walk casually into the dorm and start chatting, mostly waiting for our other roomate to arrive. 


again, sorry if it is short :p

"Nice to meet you," I say to Darkvine. Darkvine smiles again, sort of mysteriously. 

We've all got secrets here. But nevermind that . . .

I search for something to say, tracing the grain of wood on one of the beds.

"I think we're both taking rune magic and alchemy," I say. "I'm so excited!"

"Me too," Darkvine says. "I can't wait for classes to start!"

"Do you have any pets?" I ask. "I have a firebird, but I left him at home. I wasn't sure if the academy would take it kindly if he began spontaneously setting things on fire." 

Darkvine laughs, and I wait for her to respond.

"I have lots of animal friends, but none of them are pets. i actually live in an uninhabited forest. I mostly am here at this school because i have a magical ability." I said. "although there is one animal that decided to just come with me." I opened the smallest compartment in my backpack.

inside, there was a strange creature, slightly like a cross between a snake, a butterfly, and a hippogriff. "this is probably one of my best friends. his name is Gyrfalcon. i think he might be forbidden. don't tell. most people usually don't allow Flowerserpents at schools."

Flamie smiled. "your secret is safe with me." I smiled back.

@admins i thought it didn't go through- you can delete the comment this is on. 

I can't tell what you want me to delete. You need to be more specific.

"I have a drakon named Siki." I said. "a very small one. only about the size of a horse." Flamie looked surprised and concerned. "aren't drakons dangerous?" she asked. 

"yes. although this one seems to like me. he only bit me once, and that was when i acidentaly woke him up from a nap." i rolled up my shirt sleeve, revealing two rows of fang-mark scars. "this was when he was a hatchling, thankfully before he got his venomous fangs."

(April 22, 2022 - 4:19 pm)

"Cool," I say. "I've always wanted something with extremely venomous fangs! Unfortunately, my parents are really strict about that sort of thing. Actually, about most things." I sigh. "I miss my firebird, Goldwin. Anyway, a drakon must have a big appetite."

"That's for sure," says Darkvine. 

"And we're going to have to hide that Flowerserpenty-thing, Gryfalcon, from everyone else, especially from those teachers." I stop and think about what the teachers will be like. Will they be strict? Will I actually learn something, and maybe even discover my own magic power? 

"I wonder when our other roommate will arrive," Darkvine says, interrupting my thoughts.

"Mmm-hmm," I answer absentmindedly. "When do classes start again? I'm tired of sitting here. Let's go explore. There have got to be secret tunnels or something here." I knock on the wall. "Does it sound hollow to you?"

(April 23, 2022 - 4:16 pm)

uh oh. my ability is kicking in. i hastily try to dismiss it. "totally hollow. i know from banging on trees in the forest, when i was bored. really bored! like, rip-out-my-hair bored. you'd be surprised how little there is to do at wintertime." Flamie gave me a look, like banging on trees? really? 

i looked at the place where she had knocked on the wall. "maybe the hollow walls mean something." oops. that thing. happening. "like in the future or something." AH I NEED TO STOP MYSELF. this ability. so annoying. 

Flamie looked at me, confused. "the future?" 

"i mean, just a guess!" i said quickly.

"Okay . . ." I say, frowning. I look carefully at Darkvine, who looks like she's holding something back. Something hidden. What's going on here?

Darkvine continues to chatter on. "It probably means, like, a secret passage, just like you said, you know," she says hastily. She taps the wall quickly. "Yes, definitely, very certainly a secret passage."

"Well, if it's a secret passage," I say, taking side glances at Darkvine while I examine the wall, "then there must be a door. Have you seen a door, by any chance?"

"Um . . ." Darkvine begins, twisting her long, brown hair. " I-

I sprint through the corridors towards... somewhere? I think I'm supposed to go to my dorm, but I have no idea where that is.
I guess I don't really want to find it anyway, as I'll probably say something awkward, or worse, not say anything at all and my roommates will think I'm really weird—which I am, but still.
And now I'm worrying needlessly about something that probably isn't going to happen anyway because I can't find my dorm.
Ugh. Sometimes I hate my brain.
Then suddenly I see a door. It has a gold plaque-thingy that says "Flamarestii, Darkvine, Hex" engraved on it. My dorm? I open the door and step in.
Inside, I see two people and one... Flowerserpent? I've never seen one before but I know what they look like. "Cool! Is that a Flowerserpent? I've always wanted to meet one," I say enthusiastically, walking into the room.
Then I notice the people—my roommates—are engaged in a conversation and starting at a wall. Oops. I probably interupted a Very Important Conversation about a Very Important Wall.
Tactless like usual.
Sorry I'm late! I was on spring break last week and I didn't check this until just now.
