The Clock on the Wall

James is worried about the Clock on the Wall.

It’s a beautiful, grand old thing, with inlaid gold on an ivory face, and a hard, firm tokk sound every second. As far as the chronomancers can tell, it isn’t off by a bare fraction. The Headmaster talks about it like it’s Objective Time itself, like the Clock is OT’s avatar.

James took the job as Clockwatcher for a little extra scratch over the term, and because no one, not even Marcos, would dare to deface it.

But on his first solo night shift, he swears it ticks backwards, just once.
