Willow was touched when Drysi included her in the ownership of the room, and since it was fueled by rage it was probably genuine. Though, whatever satisfaction she took from Drysi referring to her without also saying an insult was diminished when the Welsh girl went on a war path. Not only was she continuing to berate Vrey, but she went on to slam the door in the face of another set of guests. She couldn't help but feel a little pity, so when Vrey began to fix the problem that she had created, Willow set about trying to calm down Drysi.

"I'm sure Vrey didn't intend for it to be rude. She even brought us snacks," the Brit said as she got off her bed and approached the door. "She's fixing it now, so that is settled. That said, you shouldn't have slammed the door. You are punishing one for not knocked, and punishing the other for being polite enough to knock despite the door not being completely shut. Mixed messages, love."

Through the gap made by Vrey, Willow peered out to scout who the guests were. Immediately recognizing Kat, she gave her a smile and a greeting before turning back to Drysi. "It's Kat and another girl. But, since this is your room as well as mine, if you would rather not have company right now, we can head down to the common area. That'd give you some space."

Three furrowed brows greeted Willow's countenance.

It wasn't anger, but instead a sense of frustration. Willow was presenting an olive branch, and being very considerate of her feelings, the girl knew this. That seemed to tear down a part of the wall that stood between them, and the scribe appeared amenable for just a moment. Her hands began to fold and wash on one another, slowly. Then, as if something soured in her mouth, her face showed those thorns that she was so capable of wearing. A deep-seated mistrust wrested in her heart, and reared that ugly side of the triclops as she turned her back to the druid. Making space, she walked up to her bed, tugging her laptop off the desk.

"Yeah, do that," muttered the scribe, plopping down and unfolding the device. She reached into her bag near-by and pulled out a set of earphones. "I don't want your friends in my room."

Willow simply gave Drysi a sad smile in response to the other girl's soured response. The Brit had been hoping that maybe taking a compromising route would have helped Drysi open up, but it seemed the attempt had failed. "Well, alright then. When I get back maybe we can talk about our fantasy novel collections," Willow said, warming her smile up as she made her way over to the pantry and grabbed a couple of the snacks that Vrey had put away.

Once it sounded like the door knob was back in place, she opened up the door to head outside. With a hand still on the door, Willow turned back to Drysi. "I'm sure they would also like to be your friends. If you gave them a chance."

Moving out of the room, Willow stood in front of the other girls. "Sorry about that. A little hectic, settling in and all that. Anyway, shall we head on down to the common area? Or sit and chat here in the suite? Either way, I've got snacks," she chimed, her tone transitioning back to chipper. Now able to see everyone clearly rather than through the crack in a door, she got a good look at the new girl that had accompanied Kat. "And apologies for a rough introduction. I don't believe we've met. I'm Willow Fairburne."

With a wide grin, Willow stuck her hand out to shake.

Kat and her companion watched in a mixture of amusement and awe at what went on, though not much of either as it wasn't that spectacular of an event to begin with. upon Willow introducing herself, Katerina's companion bowed politely rather than taking the british girl's hand, introducing herself at the same time, somewhat clumsily yet still professionally introducing herself in english.

"Ookami Reika, at your service," she announced, straightening up without as much as a smile, until her younger and more sociable cousin nudged her with a shoulder. She blinked for a moment, then registered that Willow was giving her a western greeting, something that Katerina had attempted to teach her prior to their journey into the dorms. Stoically, and robotically, she held out her own hand, grasping the blonde's and giving it a single, firm, shake.

"This is my cousin Reika," Kat filled in, as her relative had gone silent after releasing the handshake. "She's from the north and practically grew up in a Dojo, so she's still not great at social skills. She's a year ahead of us academically though I think she probably has us all beat in skills by quite a bit more than that. I doubt even Drysi has as much knowledge of her own field as Reika does of hers." Kat seemed to be rather proud of her cousin, though honestly she was having more fun teaching the girl how to act like a polite westerner than a severe and formal easterner.
