Clary's attention shifted to the large stone columns that lined the walls and served as the floor of the corridor. It was honestly quite strange that, despite the prestige of Hogwarts, on top of its overall aptitude for magic, the scenery still remained that of an old Scottish castle, occasionally chipped/cracked stone blocks and all. She allowed herself a slight smile at the thought, finding comfort in the mundane, no matter how slight of a detail it may have been. In fact, Clary's deep focus on the surroundings had gone into so much depth, that she failed to notice the knightly statue right in front of her!
Before she could stop herself, the tip of Clary's shoe scuffed against the bottom edge of the display, knocking her off her balance. She tumbled forwards, arms splayed out in front of her to catch herself, and accidentally caught the knightly statue, who did not prove to be of much assistance. Instead of halting her fall (which she, of course, blamed on gravity), the statue came down with her, resulting in a loud clatter as pieces of metal armor went rolling across the hall. She knew she'd probably receive a few curious glances from the sparse number of students in the corridor, at the sight of the young Ravenclaw girl on the ground, surrounded by random pieces of knightly armor. The only good luck she'd had throughout this whole experience was that she'd managed to keep her notes in her messenger back, randomly undamaged, and better yet, not fluttering into a giant mess across the entire hall.
