The river that flows down the Youkai Mountain drains into this lake. The poor visibility over the lake and the surrounding forests makes it appear to be very large, although one can easily walk around it. It is inhabited by behemothic fish.

Located on a ridge near the lake is the Scarlet Devil Mansion. A grand building of European styling, with few windows, an extensive basement, and an interior warped and enlarged through magical means. The clock tower houses a turret clock that only tolls at night.

Also nearby is the former Prismriver mansion. Once the home of the aristocratic Prismriver family, it now lies ruined and forgotten save by the three poltergeist sisters that remain.

It was an ordinary, quiet day at the Scarlet Devil Mansion.

Whatever the reason for the lack of disturbance from outside, Patchouli Knowledge was making good use of her time. Somewhere in one of the deeper regions of her arcane basement sanctuary, the magician was walking alongside a massive bookshelf, her amethyst gaze scanning the spines of rows and rows of dusty old grimoires which filled it's spaces. She muttered softly to herself and shook her head disapprovingly.

"No, not that one... no, not that one either... curses, why was I so stupid before? I really should reorganize these and update my indexes accordingly."

Finally, the magician came to a stop, putting a finger on top of one book in the shelf. "Ah, you are here. This is the one I was looking for." Taking the grimoire out from it's resting place, Patchouli carefully blew away the thin layer of dust that had gathered on top of it's pages and it's cover, though this act caused her to cough for a few moments before recovering.

"I hate it when that happens... Koakuma ought to dust around here more often." Wheezing, Patchouli retreated to a more well-kept section of the library, settling at the nearest reading table she could find in order to read the contets of her recovered prize.

While Patchouli was gone into the deeper parts of the library, the library doors opened slowly, a small figure quietly slipping inside the library, closing the door behind itself. The widespread iron wings and dangling jewels was a telltale sign of the youngest Scarlet as she quietly made her way into the library. Her steps were light and in audible, her presence hardly leaving any dust disturbed.

Flandre plopped down onto a chair near one of the reading table, picking up one of the volumes lying around the table. As she did so, she was just in time to greet Patchouli when she arrives.

"Oh, hello miss Patchouli."

Something seemed different today. Perhaps it was the way she carried herself with an air of aloofness about her that was...fairly uncommon for her. It had certainly been a long time since she had set foot within the library; Flandre’s relationship with the librarian had been distant compared to the other members of the household.

…Odd, she's wearing reading glasses. Then again, it’s rare to see the young mistress even read on her own instead of being read to.

Patchouli was still puffing for breath when she arrived at the table, putting the book down with an obvious expression of relief on her face. Then she glanced in Flandre's direction. "Oh, it's you, Flandre." The magician next looked at the blonde-haired vampire's glasses, and then the book that she was reading.

"Seems you've come over here to read something. What's that book you've chosen?"
