Hira roams the library stacks

It's not a difficult question, which of the freshmen will work on navigating the library. Hira is a quick learner, and has more languages than she knows what to do with. The Jaipur upperclassmen walk with her, but the whole point of the exercise is to test and improve her knowledge. Personally, Hira thinks learning to use the library is a waste of everyone's time, but it's impossible to change the Scholomance. The school will do whatever it thinks will help its students, even when this is completely ludicrous and unfounded. Who exactly benefits from a library that changes? Maybe the school saves on mana- she supposes that would explain it. What a prick.

That's why she's wandering the stacks of the library, with her juniors and seniors keeping a respectful distance.

There's a cheerful looking girl walking about reading intermittently from a book she's carrying. The book is a textbook for English speakers hoping to learn Russian. She doesn't have a power sharer but she does have something elaborate looking around her right forearm.

"Glad to see I'm not the only person hitting the stacks. Like what you found?"

"It's what I needed for a class, languages aren't my favorite subject. This seems to be a good textbook though I understand everything it's said so far."

Permalink

"That's exciting news. What class? The Scholomance has offered me a wider range of topics than I thought."

Permalink

"Russian Literature Before Pushkin. What other classes have you been surprised by?"

"I have a math class on 'abacus skills', that one was unexpected. Seems beneath my level, but I'll give it at least a week."

Permalink

"Huh, does the class give you a fancy abacus or teach you how to make one?"

Permalink

"Fancy abacus. It seems like a pretty normal abacus to me, but what do I know. It's a math class, so I'm expecting mind-numbing counting. Is 'Pushkin' an author or a literary movement?"

Permalink

"That does seem odd then. I guess calculators aren't really a thing but I feel like teaching sliderule skills would be more useful. Pushkin was an author, he's been dead for over 180 years now."

Permalink

"I'll let you know if we get to sliderules. Pushkin any good, or is this your first time running into him?"

Permalink

"It's my first time. I tried to read a couple poems but I'm not there yet with Russian so I don't know."

Permalink

"Sounds like you have work cut out for you. Do you know what kind of spells it teaches yet?"

Permalink

"Not yet, there's a wide enough range of time that I expect it'll be a variety."
