The architecture is of an older style, bright brick against dark trim, with small windows lining the walls. Blinds shutter the residents against onlookers.
Despite the age of the building the exterior is relatively well kept, and the hedges surrounding it are vibrant with green growth. The building is old enough that, despite the best efforts of maintenance, moss has begun to encroach on it over the years.
The unit itself is a small, cramped affair. The rent is very reasonable, such that even a student on a meager stipend can afford it, though the building's age begins to show if one looks too closely at the walls or furniture. Everything has a worn, lived-in appearance to it, from the scuffs on the wood floor to places where the paint has chipped away, too small to be worth fixing.
The furniture is mismatched, the accumulation of several generations of tenants, consisting mostly of thrift store finds and other dubiously sourced pieces. The couch shows signs of having been chewed on at one point in time, which is unsurprising considering the building's pet policy: so long as it fits and no one else complains, the landlord doesn't ask any questions.
Clutter lines the shelves, the tiny cabinets over the stove, the coffee table, the floor. Potted plants occupy what little space remains, though most of them are fake. The pantry, at least, is well stocked with an assortment of snacks.
A cat lounges upon the chair, resting atop a comfortable old cushion.
The bathroom is very small, lit by a single bare bulb, and not large enough for anything beyond the barest necessities. It is clean, and some effort was clearly made to refurbish it over the years, but nothing can quite erase the hints of mildew that linger at the edges of the space. The floor tiles are cracked and uneven, a testament to the age of the building.
What suffices for the 'bedroom' is not, strictly speaking, a room of its own. Clever arrangement of furniture achieves something like the effect of a separate space, but even then, the bed shares its berth with the washing machine and dryer. With the closet directly beside them, it is a surprisingly convenient setup, even if it is not particularly attractive or spacious.
The sheets are old but serviceable, and mercifully, still white. An assortment of old blankets and quilts give the space a homey feeling, even as the exposed pipes overhead remind the occupant that they are getting exactly what they paid for.
A small winged girl sits perched upon the sill of the very tiny window.
Twilight-Claw: Thanks for that piece of info Ren! <3 | But would it be allowed for the flavor of the rp if the berry wasn't filling enough for the Lotine?

Renathan: There is no need to double up on a fish and a magical berry (doesn't change the effect of the berry at all) in a lotine breeding.

Twilight-Claw: Does anyone know if it is possible to combine both a magical berry and a fish in a Lotine breeding? Or is you can only choose one of them? (right now writing a Lotine breeding)

Twilight-Claw: I am still interested in trading it for a green drake.

Ridelys: If you are still interested in a trade twilight, for your fidelity result, let me know.

Riku: I got three pet levels and 15c out of it. <3 And all the necessary posts for my job salary form.

Riku: In mine my crossbreed used foxfire to burn it - but then it used incendiary illusion, which was extra scary because my cross is a plant pet with thick fur. It used the distraction to escape. I’m proud of it, and it’s okay that I won’t finish this month.

Renathan: *But of course, the RNG was not having that. / In Morgan's story, the Nyssa was a real thing, so I wanted to have two different situations for the variety.
May 31, 2020 18:15:27 GMT -6
Renathan: Yeah, the 'finished the story but the RNGods are being a butt' thing is a rather unfortunate situation to be in. I had already decided that in Ren's story, the elderly woman had lied about the nyssa and just wanted someone to talk to*

Riku: That makes sense. I've considered that before. -nod- I hope your non-hxr life is going smoothly.

Haix: Just quitting the job. Don't believe I'll be making the ten posts required per month any time soon. XD
May 31, 2020 16:34:01 GMT -6
Riku: Note to haix, I believe you can post the new application form at the same time as the quitting form. Unless you are simply taking an overall break from the job system.

Fiera Ferella: even AT the gardens yet. XD It sucks when you've finished writing your story and haven't gotten a success, because then its like "well... now what?" XD
May 31, 2020 15:51:47 GMT -6
Fiera Ferella: ive found that when there's a quest that might take longer like this, its a good idea to try and space out the story beats to try and roll a success before i get to the meat of the story. XD Like, by the time i was 5 posts in my character wasn't
