Will Asterion move in with main character?

Asterion has his own room in the master's apartment inside the hotel, it's small, has no windows, and isn't all that comfortable. Will Asterion ever get a better room, or will he perhaps move into main characters room at the end of the novel? It just seems weird that main character doesn't bring up his living situation at all (regardless of whether or not they are romantically interested in Asterion), and then when they start to become romantically entangled the next obvious step seems like they'd move in together.

Either way it seems like Asterion should either get his own new room now that he is a partner and equals with main character, OR the two should move into a room together as they continue their relationship.

I would imagine the Devs will address this at some point, but it will probably be in an organic way that fits well with the overall story. I would guess that MC or Asterion will mention it to the other either before they first have sex, or shortly after that. That would seem to be the logical place, as things are serious between the two at that stage, and they would likely do it as a way to further their ongoing relationship.

Hope that helps!

I think it would be great if the apartment got a full renovation much like the hotel exterior did. It could include important upgrades and would include Asterion renovating his room to match his new equal status. That way they still have their own private spaces. Would make for a cool "MC R&D project".

Also while his room might be small it might be the way he likes it. Asterion mentions that most people do not share his definition of cozy when visiting the first iteration of the hotel. If he did renovate his room I wonder what he would change? 

Huh, that's an interesting thing to think about. Does Asterion actually prefer a relatively cramped room due to his own tastes? For me though, I think Asterion would like larger personal quarters for himself. In his mortal life, he slept on the Cretan palace and the labyrinth. Asterion probably has fond memories of his family's palace and a large room for royalty. Likewise, I think the labyrinth also provided a large space for him to sleep in. I'm basing this on the lore tablets, where him and his visitors slept within the vicinity of Hera's fire-shrine. I think that room would be pretty big, at least bigger than his present accomodations anyway. I would guess that the only reason Asterion had such a small room is to intentionally make himself comparatively insignificant to the master. In his monologues and musings, he admits doing things to that effect. But if he did prefer the present room, it's may be conditioned into him by centuries of subservience or clining onto the positive memories-- mementos and the like (his room has wooden carvings over the years).

On another note, this seems like a personal project rather than RD for the hotel and its customers. After all, this concerns only Asterion and the master (to a small degree).
