"I understand you, there," she said, shaking her head. "I'm not sure you would enjoy sharing a dorm with the rest of the girls in my year. So much talking Mostly I keep my curtains closed and a silencing charm around my bed..."
She sometimes felt very bad for blocking the rest of the girls out. But keeping herself out of it was much better for Lucy. Partly because she didn't quite hold an interest in all the gossip and partly because she couldn't keep up. How could she?

"Well I think I'm supposed to disapprove," she said, scrunching her nose. "But I mean, there is only so much you can learn within these walls."
