His study is simple and serves as a place for him to work on his lesson plans as well as correct and grade work.  Sometimes, he will bring students in to discuss their progress while going over their work.

The sitting room at Fairsong Academy is open with the room at the entrance.  From there, a hallway leads to the right to the rooms on the eastern side.  The western hall is entered through the dining room.

Sim’dorei Screenshots – Fairsong Academy, Entrance and Library

Situated inside the gates is the front entrance to the school.  The first room functions as a greeting area, and is open with the sitting room.  To the right upon entering, looking past the grand piano, is the library, where the students gather to read and study their lessons before going to their individual practice rooms.

Hethurin’s Notes

  • He left me.  He went to the kitchen to check on the cake.  The dining room is right next to the kitchen and the only way out of the kitchen is out the door to the garden.  I guess he could have been hiding in Tik’s room or the pantry, but that would be weird.  I’m pretty sure he left out the kitchen door.

  • I wanted to talk to him more, but I guess he doesn’t have any ideas either.

  • And I guess that means there’s nothing to do about it.  It will eventually cause problems.  I don’t want other people calling him nasty things like that, and I want people to know this is a good school and I’m not like that.

  • Still, I would have liked to see him before he left.

  • I tried bringing it up with the Confessor at first.  I got the feeling he thought I was making something out of nothing, but my father already called Terellion a prostitute.  If my own father thinks that, then other people are going to as well.

  • And he’s not a prostitute.  He works here and we fell in love.  There’s nothing wrong with that, but it reminds me of a guy my sisters used to talk about in Silvermoon.  He fell in love with his housekeeper and there was a big scandal about it!  I really can’t have that here.

  • And the things the housekeeper was called!  Even if most of it was behind her back, she must have heard about some of it.  I’d feel awful if people talked that way about Terellion.  I feel bad enough already about what my father said.  I can’t even tell him.  I wanted them to get along eventually someday, and if he knew…

  • I guess that doesn’t matter since he’s left.

  • I wish he had at least tried to help find a solution instead of disappearing.

  • Aeramin was staying here last night.  I wasn’t sure if he was here at first.  Sometimes he stays at the inn in town, but I knocked lightly on his door around 2 a.m.  I know Imralion must have been there too, but Aeramin was the one who came to the door.  I asked if we could talk, and he said he was kind of trying to sleep, but then he came with me anyway.

  • We went to my study, which was way on the other side of the house, but I didn’t want anyone to overhear anything, especially students.  Des has heard enough as it is.  Anyway, I told him everything, from just starting to tell Terellion that I loved him, to him leaving earlier that night.  I started wondering aloud if Ter was going to come back, and that’s when Aeramin said, “Now you know what I went through.”

  • I quickly reminded him that it wasn’t about us, and he stated he was just pointing out a similarity.

  • Fine.  I didn’t want to fight with him too, so I dropped it.  I asked him what he would do.

  • I had to wait while he thought about it.  Then he gave me that look, and told me that he learned some things in the past year.  It doesn’t matter how dangerous it is, I had to go find him.  He could have gotten lost in the woods at night, and that’s not a very good thing to do around here.

  • I asked Aeramin if he would substitute for the morning lesson.  He reluctantly agreed.  I tried to show him my notes for it, but he wasn’t so sure about using them.  I told him to just make sure they learn something before he has to go back to Tranquillien.  He seemed to agree with that.  I teleported to Tranquillien then.  I figured he could show himself back upstairs by himself.

  • Most of the sin’dorei in Tranquillien were asleep at that hour, but the undead were awake.  They don’t sleep.  That’s a little creepy, and it’s even creepier talking to them.  This one guy gurgled when he talked.  It was gross.  I talked to every single one I could find, but none of them had seen anyone looking like Terellion.

  • I left a note under the Confessor’s door asking him to watch for him too.  I also apologized about the other night, even though I don’t think I’m the one who should be apologizing.  I’ll need to talk to him a lot if anything has happened to Terellion.

  • Anyway, I started walking back home, hoping I’d find him along the way and that he’d be okay.  There was only a hint of light in the eastern sky, and it was still very dark.  I kept hearing things, and I kept calling for him.  Then I heard more things, and I turned around and there was an undead thing there.  Not one of the smart ones who know not to eat my brain, but one of the dumb ones.  I screamed.  I ran too, but then I thought of a better idea and timeported.

  • So now I’m at the inn in Eversong, in a different time.  It’ll give me a little time to think and make a plan to find him safely.  I can timeport back to the same time I left.  I might want to pick a different place though.

  • So far, I’ve spent most of my time here crying.  The only thing I can think of is using my disk to search for Terellion more quickly.  I’ll have to go back home for that, which is fine because I need a different place to timeport back to anyway.

  • If I haven’t found him by noon, I might go back home and ask Renner to help look for him, or I could go to Silvermoon and see if he ever showed up there.  I’m sure I can find the address.

Sim’dorei Screenshots – Fairsong Academy’s Cellar

I have so many screenshots of Fairsong Academy now that I decided to give each part its own little feature post, and starting from the bottom up.  So here we have the most boring of rooms, the cellar.

 

An overhead view of the cellar.

There are two rooms in the cellar.  The room where all the junk is, and a food/wine storage room.

And because the cellar is boring, I’ll post the first and second floor overheads here too.

First floor, ignore the hot tub in the back yard.  It's not really there.

Aeramin’s Notes

  • We’re still in the Ghostlands.  I had hoped to go back home by now, but the house needs a lot more work than I first thought it did.  Some of the boards in the walls are rotting, as well as the ceiling.  I might as well say we’re building a whole new house.  At least it’s going faster with Imralion here.  He can pick up things that I couldn’t, and having someone I trust to hold the ladder is just so much more better than when I had to ask Arancon to do it.  He never tipped it over, but he would shake it.  I do wonder sometimes what makes him so hateful.  I’m not that bad.  I think I turned out fairly okay.  He doesn’t even know about things he could really hate me for.

  • Anyway, I’m used to it.  I don’t think Imralion is.  He doesn’t say much directly to Im, which is good.  I’d get angry if he did, but Im sees the way he treats me.  Im’s been an orphan most of his life, and now I feel like I’m breaking what his idea of family is.  Of course, I don’t think many families are happy all the time either, but they’re a lot better at pretending at it than my father is.

  • He’s been staying at the inn while we’re still knocking down walls and rebuilding them.  Unfortunately, he still wanders over to the house to “check on the progress”.  I’ve told him to stop doing that.  Technically, it’s my house.  I bought it and it’s in my name.  I’ll let him know when it’s done and he can move in.  The more he leaves us alone to work on it, the quicker it will be done.  There’s no reason for him to check on it.  It will be fine to live in when we’re done.  He still comes over anyway.  It’s funny how his injury keeps him from doing any work, but he can get around well enough to come over and make rude comments all of the time.

  • I thought about hiring extra people to get it done, but I think Im and I can handle it.  I’m trying to keep the cost down, but the way it’s going, it’ll cost more to repair than it’s really worth.  It’ll just be worse if I hire people as well.

  • My father has been drinking at the inn and charging the drinks to the room.  I’m paying for his drinking.  I’d mind less if he stayed in his room more.  I almost asked the innkeeper to stop serving him alcohol, but then he might trash the room or start a fight or something.  If the drinks keep him quiet for now, then I guess I can pay for them for another week or two.

  • Im and I have been staying at the inn occasionally too.  I prefer staying at the school.  The room at the school is a lot nicer than any of the rooms at the inn.  There’s a big bath in the room next to it, and the bed is so comfortable.  It’s warmer too.  There’s a fireplace right in the room.  I think a lot of the rooms at the school have them.  I’d hate to be the one making sure there’s enough wood to burn for the entire building, though I guess some of it is still closed off.  The upstairs looks fully occupied, but most of the southern section of the downstairs is still closed off.

  • I’m still giving the fire magic lessons there.  I’ve been told that some of the other students may wish to attend the class too.  He was talking about setting up a separate classroom for it.  I guess that’s okay as long as he doesn’t run out of rooms.
