COURT OF MYSTERIES -SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA

There are two reasons to build your house in the dead of night illuminated only by a small lantern and the moon. 

Reason one: You are a believer in Eastern mythology and Occult spiritualism building a mysterious and cryptic brick building modeled on a Hindi temple and covered in five-pointed stars and arcane patterns. The light of the moon bathes the structure in unseen power, forging a connection to planes of existence beyond space and time. 

Reason two: You are a bricklayer from Pennsylvania working in Santa Cruz in the 1930s and you would rather not deal with inspectors or building permits. 

These reasons are not mutually exclusive.

Her expression so reminds me of Sable right now. It’s been a long while since I even mentioned her, but she’s an elf mage of mine who has had her emotions severely dulled by a calming charm that she accidentally placed over herself as a child, which constantly renews itself with the natural presence of her magic. That little eyebrow raise would be like her raging over someone’s supreme idiocy.
