Looks like I'm having myself a shading party this weekend. As for the questions about housing, I'm thinking - in the CN:H world - the men's and women's wings are separated by a hall of storage rooms. At least this means Mori hasn't been knocking on people's doors, waking them up.
"Hey! Yeah, hi. Listen, is there a strange, glowing gate to another realm in your room? No? Okay, thank you. Night!"
