Default Decompression Chamber



Much like the rest of the Department of Mysteries itself, even the designated 'break room' is an oddity.

One may think they have entered a rock zen garden upon entering the Decompression Chamber, but as your feet walk upon the plush and bouncy floor these concerns begin to diminish. If the extra bounce to your step was not enough, then upon further inspection the discover that the 42 rocks are, in fact, pillows will certainly drill home the idea. There is not a hard surface in the room from floor to wall to ceiling, even the vending machine - FREE for all Ministry employees! - by the door is plush and squishy with packaged contents reminiscent of vintage muggle astronaut food - although you will only find ice cream in a variety of wizarding and muggle flavors here along with various drinks (hot coffee included). One need simply to press their Ministry badge to the scanner and input the number combination for the desired item and it will levitate from its place right out through the enchanted rubbery glass to you. Just be sure to take all trash with you when you leave.

OOC: this is a PUBLIC thread. All Ministry employees and visitors are welcome to RP here.

The holiday's we're over and they we're all back in business. With the events of just a few months ago with the many rock pillows, and not to forget the golem too still fresh in memory the Laurel entered the Decompression chamber again to survey the damage. She didn't work in this chamber and usually had no business in here, but Laurel wanted to see for herself if things we're back to normal in here.

Looking around she was surprised to see that the 40 or so rock pillow we're still lying on the floor where they had fallen. Why hadn't Airey had them removed? Did that mean that the golem was still in here too? Tugging blond strands of hair behind her ears thoughtfully Laurel walked towards the nearest pillow mumbling to herself "Why are they still here?"

Tap...tap...tappity tap...

Adam swung his support cane back and forth slowly as he walked. His over-sized purple sunglasses were shoved up into his black hair. He was trying to push his field of vision to the next level and therefore was trying not to keep the sunglasses on unless around people. His slightly brighter than usual blue eyes tended to glow a bit, due to the potion he was taking for his eyesight and the glow tended to weird people out. Hopefully, trying to use his eyes more wouldn’t have the opposite effect and put too much strain on his eyes. But he wouldn’t know until he tried, and frankly, the healers hadn’t been much help or inspiration lately.

He had, however, taken a wrong turn and was trying to find his way back Love Chamber so he would go back to work on his latest experiment. It was a time sensitive project and he only had about a half hour left before he needed to complete the next step.

” Vhy izt vat here?” Adam asked upon hearing a female’s soft voice. His eyesight might be terrible, but his hearing had improved as a result.

Laurel had bent down to pick up a rock pillow when she heard the distinct tippity tap of the cane that could only belong to Adam, level 9’s resident potioneer. He had a bad eyesight and if she didn’t misremember also bad hearing. Examining the rock pillow closer and drawing her hand over the fabric to feel it around for clues Laurel’s focus wasn’t on the door when Adam walked in.

Hearing his english mixed with a foreign language she thought was german she looked up from the pillow she was holding at Adam trying to not stare too long at the glowing eyes or the oversized sunglasses for that matter. "Hi Adam," Gesturing with the pillow she was holding towards the other 40 or so pillows lying on the floor Laurel continued "I wonder why Airey hasn’t discarded these rock pillows? They caused a lot of trouble last term if you remember?"

Nope, Adam didn’t remember. He had found a way to get out of elected to sit last year’s group activity out by going to the healers for his mandatory post-brain-take-over checkup. (He’d been fine by the way, if perhaps a little less goofy.) He’d heard a little about the event though and was quite grateful that he hadn’t participated. He likely would have ended up with a few broken bones and, while, the old Adam wouldn’t have been afraid of that, frankly the loss of his sight and the body abduction had been enough for a while.

He saw some shift in her indistinct form and figured she must be gesturing towards something. He looked out over the room, not seeing very much if he were honest. Closer things, if they stood still long enough sometimes came into dim focus long enough for him to figure out what it was he was looking at, but he didn’t really see anything here. He shuffled forward, then felt his support cane prod into something. ”Maybe, he vants a re-do?” he offered, poking the rock-pillow with his white and red cane. “He” could have been the rocks or Airey. Adam had spent a good portion of the year avoiding their boss, least the man want to exact revenge for what Reil – in Adam’s body – had done in the man’s office.

Hello, name is Lucien Wright.
Mysteries
Default Hello!

Lucien had been letting his curiosity get the best of him despite his normal ideas of proper protocol and lines of authority. He had been peeking in every room in the Department to see what was behind the doors and what Mysteries were involved as per the name. He’d heard there were some incidents last year and he didn’t quite care for all of that, but he might as well do some research and be informed.

When he opened the door to this particular room however there were already a couple of people inside. He hadn’t met everyone yet and certainly hadn’t memorized everyone’s names. He tried to be subtle and back out of the doorway before catching their attention but as he was turning to close the door there was an audible SQUEAAAAAK.

Letting the rock pillow drop to the floor Laurel came to the conclusion that Adam hadn’t been there for their ’exercise’ with the pillows that Airey had arranged to get them off their seats so to speak. She had hoped for some support but it was clear that Adam wasn’t going to provide it. Laurel watched him shuffle close to her as his prodding cane into contact with one of the pillows. Furrowing her brows in mild confusion she repeated with a look over at Adam "He want’s a re-do? Who do you mean? Our boss? I doubt it. Airey won’t risk another golem incident." If he of course hadn’t lost all his marbles over the holidays. The golem Laurel definitely didn’t want to re-see.

At the very audible SQUEAAAK coming from the door Laurel’s eyes and attention immediately darted in that direction. Spotting a man standing in the doorway that she only half recognized as one of the new employees but didn’t remember the name of she waved kindly to him. "Hi! Are you lost? Or looking for somewhere in particular? This is the decompression chamber." Trying to be helpful couldn’t hurt.

If he of course hadn’t lost all his marbles over the holidays. The golem Laurel definitely didn’t want to re-see.

Apparently Adam has said the wrong thing. There was a tension in the air that he couldn’t describe. Maybe, he tried to tell himself, Laurel just didn’t understand his accent. ”Zee rock zing,” he said motioning around the room with his hand out trying to clarify. But who knew with Airey? Maybe the man had lost his marbles. He was a strange duck and Adam had seen the man lose it before. He scratched his chin as he remembered Airey chasing him- no- Reil – around the room as he – no – Reil had a rock in his mouth. He highly doubted Laurel had ever seen Airey with a look like that in his eyes.

”Had it really been zat bad?” he asked her simply. ”I vas not zere zo I do not know…” He thought for a moment. If he remembered correctly, Laurel worked with prophecies. He had no clue if she was prophetic though, and wondered perhaps if she was sensitive to things he was not. Adam has spent most of the last year avoiding his boss because of the Reil incident, but perhaps it was time to bite the philosophical bullet and speak with the man. ”Schould ve ask zhe boss?” And be ‘we’ he meant Laurel, since Adam had no idea how to produce a patronus of any sort. He could, however, always send a paper note off. He always kept pen and paper with him and was pretty good at paper airplane charms

Blind he might be, but Adam’s hearing had improved greatly in the past two years. He had heard the door open, some footsteps, and had begun turning when the loud SQUEAAAAAK happened. The sound caused Adam to speed up his turn, his support cane swung outward in a large arc. Yes Adam was jumpy. It was nothing personal. If you’d been through what he’d been through in the last couple of years here in the DoM you’d be jumpy too.

”Zho’s zere?” he barked out, slightly brighter than normal blue eyes unseeing as they stared vaguely in Lucien’s direction. He wasn’t about to be taken over again by a strange creature or lose another of his five senses today.

Lucien cursed himself in his head, of course he couldn't have made a quiet exit. He hadnt meant to draw any attention to himself. Quite the opposite in fact, he just wanted information. To know everything about his new place of employment. He liked to know what he was dealing with and no one from outside Mysteries ever really had answers.

"Uh...hi!" Lucien stepped into the room and waved his hand. He felt awkward having been caught. "Sorry, I didn't realize anyone was in here. I can give you guys some privacy, I didn't mean to intrude." He scratched the back of his head. What was he doing here? "I was just...becoming familiar with my surroundings. New place and all." He tried to explain, but wanted to keep it short. No need for further questions. He can come explore another time. He'd have a better chance at learning the room's Mysteries anyways.

Privacy? What did the man think he and Laurel were doing? Adam didn’t realize it, but he took a step away from her as thoughts of Zita popped into his head. He put his support cane back on the ground as moved afraid he might hit a rock and fall over.

Sounded like the fellow was new to the department. ”Be careful,” Adam warned pulling his sunglasses down onto his face. He knew all too well the dangers of randomly walking into rooms around here, but the warning was all he would give the fellow. He wasn’t the type to go scaring people and it wasn’t a bad idea that the fellow look around. ”Vou don't have to go und are velcome to stay. Look around.” He waved around the room, then motioned to himself and Laurel. ”Ah-tam. Zis ist Laurel. Ve vere just looking at zee rocks.” Well, Laurel was looking, Adam was poking with his support cane. Speaking of…

He poked the rocks again with his stick. ”Vhat do vu zink Laurel? Contact Herr Flamsdeed or ?”

Cringing at the memory Laurel responded quietly to Adam as she gazed around at the rock pillows. "Yes it was that bad. A rock golem came out of nowhere and attacked all of us that we’re just dodging pillows for an athletic exercise. We we’re lucky that nobody got too badly injured." If she recalled right they had all come out of it with just some scrapes and bruises no concussion or anything like it. Adam hadn’t attended so he of course couldn’t know why she was feeling upset at seeing the pillows still there. "I had wished that the pillows would have been removed that’s all." They hadn’t exactly given any of them fond memories to remember.

SPOILER!!: Adam & Lucien

Privacy? Laurel tensed. He wasn’t implying that they we’re doing something inappropriate was he? She was happily married to Aaron thank you very much. She didn’t even think Adam was very attractive. To show he wasn’t intruding at all Laurel took another big step away from Adam as she shook her head. "No you’re not interrupting anything. Lucien right? We we’re just looking and discussing these pillow’s made of rock that caused some mayhem before the holidays and why they might still be here."

Laurel preferred introducing herself, but Adam beat her to it so she smiled a little and nodded as Adam told Lucien who they were. "So where will you work Lucien? What job have you taken up?" she wondered before looked over at Adam again. "I can send Airey a notice. A patronus isn’t needed." Pulling out her wand from her robe pocket Laurel conjured up a small parchment that she scribbled on and then sent it away to Airey's office. The note burned up into thin air and left after it a hint of burning smell in the air.

Airey had been shoulders deep in some paperwork at his desk along with having his personal star chart out to cross reference a few anomalies he had observed while helping train the new astronomers in the Space Chamber earlier in the week. Couldn't have another black hole incident now, could they? Thankfully, nothing in his char had indicated anything out of the ordinary and the report from the evolutionists was promising. Though he would go back and check just to be sure.

What Airey was NOT thankful for was the note that had INCINERATED itself on his desk as though it were trying to be a howler. A scorch mask now covered part of the orbital paths of Pluto and Neptune right where Pluto would have become the 8th planet WERE PLUTO STILL A PLANET TO BEGIN WITH. He supposed that certain former pupils of his own would take this opportunity to stake a claim that with that evidence now tampered with Pluto could be reinstated. It was an amusing thought but only fueling his agitation with the situation. WHO HAD THOUGHT IT PRACTICAL TO SEND A BURNING NOTE?! They had Ministry memos, quaint little purple paper airplanes that were a joy to play with afterwards. What was wrong with one of those?! WHY DID HIS STAR CHART AND OTHER DOCUMENTS HAVE TO SUFFER?!

Still. following the request of the note - who had sent it was forgotten in the heat of the moment - and arrived in the Decompression Chamber looking less than pleased.

"........I hope the thought that provoked the need to summon me is worth it. I have an important star chart I need to repair now," he grumbled as he looked upon the three.

Adam hadn’t attended so he of course couldn’t know why she was feeling upset at seeing the pillows still there. "I had wished that the pillows would have been removed that’s all." They hadn’t exactly given any of them fond memories to remember.

SPOILER!!: Adam & Lucien



Privacy? Laurel tensed. He wasn’t implying that they we’re doing something inappropriate was he? She was happily married to Aaron thank you very much. She didn’t even think Adam was very attractive. To show he wasn’t intruding at all Laurel took another big step away from Adam as she shook her head. "No you’re not interrupting anything. Lucien right? We we’re just looking and discussing these pillow’s made of rock that caused some mayhem before the holidays and why they might still be here."

Laurel preferred introducing herself, but Adam beat her to it so she smiled a little and nodded as Adam told Lucien who they were. "So where will you work Lucien? What job have you taken up?" she wondered before looked over at Adam again. "I can send Airey a notice. A patronus isn’t needed." Pulling out her wand from her robe pocket Laurel conjured up a small parchment that she scribbled on and then sent it away to Airey's office. The note burned up into thin air and left after it a hint of burning smell in the air.

Tension….!!!

Adam took another step away from Laurel, support cane tapping as he moved. He was kind of wondering what her problem was at this point. She really didn’t seem to like him and he wasn’t exactly sure what he had done. He didn’t smell funny today. His hair wasn’t oddly colored. His eyebrows were both intact and nicely trimmed…at least he thought they were (he rubbed at them with his free hand).

He hoped whatever the issue that it was just because of the dumb rock pillow things that she was on edge and that he just happened to be the person/thing she was taking it out on. He could understand her unease from what she described but still…no need for friction.

A waft of burnt paper filled the air and Adam rubbed at his nose trying to fend off a sneeze before pushing his glasses back up into his hair. He would have just sent a paper airplane note. Perhaps Laurel liked a dramatic flair.

Frankly, Adam was happy the man had stopped that from happening because –woof! Trying to pass that?! Or chew it? Adam probably would be wearing dentures now.

”Laurel vas concerned about zee rocks…” Adam said turning around, but staying far out of Airey’s reach, you know, just in case. Not because he was scared of the man or anything.

He was also staying away from Laurel too.

Sounded like the fellow was new to the department. ”Be careful,” Adam warned pulling his sunglasses down onto his face. He knew all too well the dangers of randomly walking into rooms around here, but the warning was all he would give the fellow. He wasn’t the type to go scaring people and it wasn’t a bad idea that the fellow look around. ”Vou don't have to go und are velcome to stay. Look around.” He waved around the room, then motioned to himself and Laurel. ”Ah-tam. Zis ist Laurel. Ve vere just looking at zee rocks.” Well, Laurel was looking, Adam was poking with his support cane. Speaking of…

He poked the rocks again with his stick. ”Vhat do vu zink Laurel? Contact Herr Flamsdeed or ?”

"Well, it's nice to meet you. I'm Lucien, yes. Have we met before Laurel?" He didn't remember meeting her, at least he doesn't usually try to socialize. Its exhausting. But he did want to learn more about these rocks. What mayhem? What caused seemingly comfortable pillow rocks to be dangerous?

Looking up from the rocks at Laurel's question he clasped his hands behind his back and began to rock on his heels. "I've been taken on as a Cryptographer in the Chamber of Codes, fortunately. And what about the two of you?" I guess it doesn't hurt to make work-related connections. Does it?

Why are they sending a not to Flamsteed? Oh dear Lucien really doesn't need to be caught up in whatever this is....maybe if I just slip right back out...

...too late! Well, he's in for it now. What? Was he to look like a coward and deny everything or can he just be a silent partner over here? Completely silent. No relation or correlation whatsoever. Nope, nothing.

Good. Yes, Laurel. Not Lucien, Lucien has not sent any burning notes or annoyed any new bosses. He's just staying silent....

....Laurel was worried about the rocks?

The department head's mind instantly wandered to Pebbles in his office and wondering what the Unspeakable had to fret about her when he pieced together that the reference was to the pillows. "And the reason for sending me a memo that BURST in flames after was supposed to be some existential representation of this upset?" Because the man was NOT here for it.

At all.

Airey couldn't even bring himself to pay attention to the new Cryptographer for the department - who was being the nervous spectator over there in the corner - and had his forget-me-not-blues fixated on Adam and Laurel. Though Adam too seemed to be avoiding getting too close to the him as though he were going to catch the Black Plague. Just make sure your vaccinations were all up to date, Adam.

"All 42 of these rock pillows were examined and tests after the incident of last term. Any lingering effects non existent and the threat level minimal at best."

Though, now that he was looking around, it seemed there may be a few pillows missing? Hmmm.

”Potioneer in zee effer locked room,” Adam said continuing to poke the rocks with his support cane. Mentally he added ‘and department black cloud and head of the bad luck club.’ Aloud he said - ”Chamber of Cotes? Don’t zink I’ve been in zere.” The name sounded like he couldn’t get into too much trouble in there, but then, one would have thought that about the Space Chamber and look where that had gotten him.

Perhaps he’d have to check it out… once his eyesight was better.

Adam shrugged, head bobbing back and forth between Laurel and Airey’s general directions. He had a feeling that Airey was reliving the events in his office with the pet rock and Reil and he took a step further away from the man just as his boss started babbling about flames and philosophy and said a bunch of English words that were not in Adam’s vocabulary.

Had Adam’s sight been normal, he probably would have caught the pensive look on his boss’s face post-exposition about the rocks being fine. But as Adam could barely see anything clearly, he missed it. As it was, he could understand Laurel’s unease about the rocks, especially after what she had described earlier about the last time she had been in this room.

And then he thought of something. Laurel worked with prophecies. Perhaps she knew something that nobody else did. He turned back in her direction wondering. He wasn’t really sure how prophetic things worked.

this member will self-destruct in 3... 2... 1... 💥💥 nickleback 💥💥

Aslan had slipped into the room some time ago, though she had not been trying to sneak in by any means. It had just... Happened. Quiet, watchful. She had come here for coffee and a chance to think- to dream- outside of her chamber- but there seemed to be something happening. Laurel, a witch she did not know well, was flustered- pink- flush, fire, fever- while the others, including the former professor, seemed skeptical at most.

The mug was warm in the young mother's hands. She did not speak, not yet feeling any need to, only listened. The other woman's worry seemed to ebb and flow, filling the room in waves of soft, frustrated fear. Aslan tilted her head, careful in her consideration before turning her dark eyes to Adam - fearful too, but not the same fearful - and then to Airey.

He was as grey as ever. A stone. a block. a steel cylinder ready for flight. Certainly, Aslan mused, He had seen enough to know nothing was ever simply gone.

She sipped her coffee, it's bitterness awakening her. brightening. Still, she said nothing.

Silence.

Airey much preferred that sound these days as loud noises reminded him of the explosive ones that came whenever Atlas and Aries were near one another. Or even several rooms down from one another. Bloody hell may they be sorted into different houses when their time for Hogwarts came.

Though the silence greeting him now was particularly unnerving. He had come to expect the general aesthetic from Miss Evans - still mind boggling that she was one of his employees now - but Adam was being particularly grim today. And yes, the department head did recall the whole attempted consumption of Pebbles...but that was all water under the bridge as far as the man was concerned. Now that that whole situation had come to light, there was no real reason for Airey to resent Adam. Outside of the man being a bit of a liability to the department with his disaster prone nature, that is.

"....is that all?" he questioned, eyes shifting about. Because if not, then he fancied himself a bit of that space ice cream from the vending machine.

Gesturing around them Laurel questioned "Why are the pillows still here Airey? They should have been replaced considering what transpired in here before the holidays." She still had that rock golem show up in her seering and she didn’t like it one bit.

Adam, sigh. Did her really have to speak for her when she very well could speak for herself? Feigning the wish too shot Adam a sour look she asked Airey. "What did you do with the rock golem? Did you send it to accidents for evaluation or is it still here?" She really wanted to know if she could scratch that thing out of her dreams and sights as harmless.

Laurel chose to ignore Airey’s angry tone about the memo that had burst into flames. He should just cool his jets. It was just a memo not a stampeding patronus. Looking around the room, counting the rocks off in her head and not reaching 42. Suspicious. Holding up a hand to stop him Laurel asked "If the pillows are no threat then why are a number of them missing from? I only count around 35 pillows not 42."

And why was a woman (Aslan) lingering in the back of the room drinking coffee Laurel just realized? Looking over at her she called out “Hi! Are you looking for someone?”

As Adam was basically blind and the rest of the people in the room were making noises, Adam had no clue another person had joined them. With his back to her, he kept poking at the rock-pillows with his support cane, flipping one or two over in the process.

And why was a woman (Aslan) lingering in the back of the room drinking coffee Laurel just realized? Looking over at her she called out “Hi! Are you looking for someone?”

He heard Laurel’s sigh as if she was standing right next to him. She sure was surly one. He really didn’t have much else to add to this conversation. It was more a case of once again, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Besides, every time he opened his mouth, Laurel seemed to take offense to whatever he said. Best to keep quiet at this point, he figured.

He poked another rock, then turned and folded up his cane. As the rocks were all behind him, he was certain he could find his way out the door and back to Love Chamber. His potion should just about be ready for the next steps or two.

And then Laurel was yelling about rocks being missing and at yet another person…who else had joined them? Adam fidgeted uncomfortably with his sunglasses. It felt like this had become a department meeting. Why would rocks go missing?

A thought occurred to him. ”Is zere ein containment charm on das room?” Because if there wasn’t, perhaps adding one would put Laurel at ease. "Unt vhy vould rocks go misting?" he asked. Surely nobody would want one in place of their desk chairs. Or maybe they did. Adam had no idea if they looked comfy and he wasn't about to try one out.

Cool his heels? COOL HIS HEELS?! SHE WAS THE ONE SENDING HIM MEMOS THAT SUDDENLY BURST INTO FLAMES. THAT WAS HOT NOT COOL. AND HE MEANT SUCH IN A LITERAL SENSE.

"...I do not believe you understand the situation," he replied somewhat calmly. "Your memo which unnecessarily burst into flames has ruined my star chart and thus set me back on several deadlines." This was her opportunity to explain why she felt the need for such shenanigans before he officially contacted payroll for a small monthly deduction.

What in Orion's name were these Unspeakables asking him? Sweet solstice he needed some stronger tea...though he could never cease his obsession with Earl Gray, HOT. "As you are all well aware, the Department of Mysteries has elaborate containment and protective charms all around it. From the chambers themselves to the department as a whole, there are numerous defensive measures in place for your protection as well as the protection of the Ministry at large." Though, as was the nature of magic itself, things were still very unpredictable. The fact that grown witches and wizards refused to accept this status quo was embarrassing at times. "The rock golem simply ceased to be and it was concluded that whatever force had created it had run its course." Which was also the case for most incidents in the Space Chamber, as it were. Like the black hole of several years ago. "As for why any of the rock pillows may have gone missing...I suspect someone has stolen them...and when I find out who has done so they are fired."

Did anyone think he was joking? He was not. Airey Flamsteed took his rock enthusiasm VERY seriously.
