I thought it might be fun to pry into mundane or irrelevant moments our walkers have. As an example, I'll lead with this Question:

"Syl, Chardis, What is your ideal breakfast in the morning?"

Chardis: "Bacon. Sausage. Ham. Served hot and charred almost to a crisp. Preferably, served with the tusk of the boar it came from, which I can use as a table knife..."

Syl: "Oh, you are a bore, dear brother. Breakfast is the meal of the mind, and if you want ideas to flow freely, your breakfast must flow, as well. Juices are paramount, as are watery fruits and melons. I used to have them delivered to me fresh daily from Galanos, often with a choice selection of fish to accompany them."

Chardis: "Oh, and the life essence of some upstart young planeswalker. That always makes a nice breakfast."

Syl: "Please, be serious, dear brother. That is more of an evening snack."

Chardis: "Of course, dear sister. Of course."

Okay, this one is for Szat and Amah:
"are you fond of bookmarks, or are you more a page number kinda gal?"

Also, everyone should feel free to contribute stupidity to the thread.

Hey, Ilyta? How do you run your classes? Are you a straight-up lecturer, or are you more into the Socratic method of discussion-based learning? Are you a "mid-term and final" only kind of instructor, or do you prefer frequent smaller quizzes, or maybe papers covering historic concepts? Do you give bonus points?

It's funny, I actually have something that would kinda answer the question in drafts, but it's nowhere near complete or polished...

Ilyta: "First off, if you have any questions, I'll ask you to come back during office hours. Oh, who am I kidding, I haven't even been in my office for two weeks. The first class session, I always hand out the syllabus with the course outline and required reading. Lectures are three hour periods every week... or at least they're supposed to be. I'm not always there for it. Er... well, most of them at least. Nevertheless, my aides handle any coursework I'm not present for, albeit they aren't cleared for lectures, but then again, that's what the required reading is for.

As to the papers, there's one due in midyear and one due at course's end, on top of the practical examination."

I'm honestly a little embarrassed to admit that I legitimately forgot for a few days that Vena was my character.

"I prefer bookmarks for primary reading. The ones with the sewn-in cloth bookmarks are the best, especially when there are a couple of them for different pages you want to cross-reference! I should enchant a nice bookmark for the tomes that don't have them, since a lot of manuscripts aren't generous enough to give numbers either, and I'm sure there are a couple good spells that could be woven into that..."
