And so the Royal/Rebel talk strikes again~
We could always assume that just because they were sitting across opposite ends doesn’t mean they’re either or? I’m a little miffed myself, but I’m wondering if, canon-wise, the (literally) royal students were supposed to be segregated from non-royals, seating wise.
After all, they did get special seating arrangements on Orientation Day in the diaries. Maybe they were purposely divided for the election?
