Default Into the Mist: Hogwarts Grounds



The temperature drops as you approach the front gates of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. The castle that can usually be seen off in the distance is entirely obscured by the thick mist that has settled. Just a glance makes it difficult to see where the mist ends and the sky begins. It is as if the entire castle is engulfed.

An eerie silence hangs about. No birds fly overhead and there are no creatures big or small scurrying in the vicinity. The occasional rustle of unseen leaves are all that occasionally step in to break the silence.

There is an ominous feel as you get closer, a dread you cannot explain but it weighs heavy on you the closer you get. Just nerves? A justifiable fear?

The mist almost seems to watch you as you approach. As if it is its own living being and the feeling is enough to send chills up your spine. What lies ahead?

Good, the thing was loosening its grip. Ronan took the opportunity to maneuver away, letting go of Matt's arm and ducking out of the path of the rest of the spells. He was about to ask out loud why everyone was casting Riddikulus instead of a patronus, but then he realized the difference of effect the two spells had......

...........

...............

"Boggarts?!" The way that one word was said......yes, the young man was angry and maybe a bit embarrassed. Angry that they were called out here over a creature that third years were taught to defeat. Angry that they obviously hadn't been. Angry that this meant that those children outside had been simply abandoned to die of starvation and thirst it wasn't at all better than having their souls sucked out as had been his thought. "I don't remember boggarts coming with so much mist...?" That was directed at the creatures team, of course, because who would know better than them about the habits of creatures?

This was all he said about the subject as he moved further up the stairs, since those three had been dealt with. How were they supposed to get them out of here?

Your Worst Nightmare | Not Riddikulus at All

Boggarts.

By the hundreds. No. By the thousands if one were able to take a proper head count.

Infiltrating any and all dark crevasses found in Hogwarts castle, the swarm had moved across the country shrouded the mist in a collective effort to conceal them within it. Humans, magical and not, all feared the unknown and en masse this had become their most efficient means of mobility.

Those few who had been struck by Riddikulus remained hidden in their metallic sanctuaries inside suits of armour or the drawers of some of the cabinets lining the corridor. But it would take much...MUCH...more than that to rid Hogwarts of this infestation. A tedious task ahead but with an end in sight, maybe.

As one wave retreated, another wave swooped in. Trying to appear even more menacing and intimidating in forms than the first.

It was a long shot, and a risky one at that. The Boggart-Banishing Spell was good for one thing, and one thing only, and it didn't take a genius to figure out what that thing was. If this was anything else, anything more dark or dangerous, Jake could have easily wasted his best shot.

But he was... free? He was free. It had worked, and not just for him, but the others too.

Backing away slightly, Jake watched as the figures whirled and fled, all the while feeling a mixture of relief and unease. The latter was probably because, despite knowing what the beings - uh, non-beings - were, the overwhelming sense of fear still stuck with him. He turned his head to glance at the others in the group, Alexa in particular, though he naturally ended up trying to assess the status of everyone as much as he could with just a brief look.

"... Now we know..." Sort of. That helped. A bit.

But there was a lot that they still didn't know. Like how on earth were there so many here? Was there someone behind it? Had the boggarts themselves orchestrated it all, or was just some kind of... weird phenomenon? How exactly had those kids died? Jake could think of about half a dozen possibilities in that moment alone.

As it happened, there wasn't actually much time to think about the details or the whys and wherefores. Unsurprisingly, there were more boggarts, swooping forward in the very next moment. Acting instinctively, Jake raised his blackthorn wand again and pointed it at one of the advancing figures. "Riddikulus!"

New question: how on earth were they going to get rid of them all? One at a time, in a continued onslaught of the Boggart-Banishing Spell? There were so many places in Hogwarts for these things to hide, maybe even places that nobody knew about... he wasn't even sure if they could be guaranteed to get them all. If Jake had had a moment to fully consider the matter, he'd probably have been exhausted just thinking about the task ahead.

Simon wasn’t aware of the full report from Environmental and Creatures so he left Alexa’s question to be answered by those more knowledgeable on the matter. He was still paying attention to what might be said however, seeing as any part of it might prove useful for him in this mission. Anything that could help was to be a benefit to them. That and casting a few spells as he slowly progressed in search of the abnormal that could lead to solving the mystery or mysteries rather that them came here to solve.

As first one call and then another concerning the lost students, the auror turned security head didn’t need clarification to know it wasn’t good news. The tones expressed by Ronan and Jake said it all. He sighed and paused, lowering his head for but a moment. Kids...just kids. It didn’t get any easier over the years in dealing with death on the job especially those of the young. But it did strengthen one’s resolve to get to the bottom of things, Simon regrouping and continuing forward into the mist and letting those who had found their charges take care of them.

Before long the large doors that stood to greet the average visitor and inhabitant loomed over for them to enter, Simon tentatively doing just that. No point not going further by exploring the interior of the great castle. The feel was far from what he had ever felt there, even when he was first came as a small nervous eleven-year-old. Oppressive and unnerving to say the very least. He swallowed to gather himself, catching Alexa’s instruction about not moving alone and nearly berating himself. He’d grown so used to handling security often on his own that the safety in numbers didn’t always naturally occur.

If only he had the likes of Josh or Sabel to remain his partners.

Simon spotted the nearest member of their little group, a woman from one of the other departments he believed and moved to head along with her. “Anything on your end?” he asked, grabbing for any information from his current partner. He didn’t get any sort of answer from her at first, figuring she might not have heard him. Though before he could repeat himself there was the screams and he whipped around to investigate. Unfortunately the mist had seeped around and was impeding more of his vision.

“Lum---” he started to cast, stopping sort as the form he had been following was now collapsed on the floor. His eyes widening at the scene and bring him up short.

Wha…

When the boggart lunged again, Emilia's eyes widened considerably, but her relief came shortly after. It had worked. The spell had worked. "Good thinking, Jake." Great, even. Now they knew the what that they were dealing with, but there were still so many. Far too many, if you asked her.

She tried to remember everything she knew about the creatures while casting another Riddikulus at the non-beings. It seemed like they were coming from everywhere, and she didn't see how they could trap them all. She'd do her part to trap some, at least.

"Riddikulus!"

"Should we summon something to trap them? Something we can lock?" Trunks, containers with lids, anything. She hoped the creatures crew had some plan in mind, because she wasn't sure they could cover this whole castle with the small group they had assembled.

Thankfully, his question wasn't important to the task they were currently facing-getting the creatures out of Hogwarts. It could help steer the direction of the investigation into how they managed to invade the castle, however.

As he started back up the staircase, Ronan overheard Emilia's question and answered by quickly transfiguring the suits of armor and cabinets the things had chosen to hide in into military-style steel trunks with the modification of thick locks, just to be sure the boggarts couldn't get free. And thank goodness it was quick, too, as more took their places in the assault. He aimed his wand at one and cast a silent Riddikulus, imaging the Inferius dressed as a 'gangster' with a small chuckle.

As soon as his spell hit, Darej moved toward the figure to divert its attention. He was still angry at being in a vulnerable state earlier. He wanted to teach this thing a lesson. However, this was going to take more than Depulso as his eyes widened beneath his hardened brows at the changing form. It was burning and changing... That's when the proper spell hit directly sending it into hiding. Nodding in agreement.

Boggarts... That's what it was. It made sense as Darej got re-acquainted with his surroundings. His wand arm was out. Boggarts loved to linger in dark and enclosed spaces. They were like snakes, preferring to recluse themselves until tampered with. The question came and that sent him thinking rapidly. Where could they be sent to? Didn't the school have a vanishing cabinet in the Room of Requirement? Would this really be worth the treck into finding enough of them? Out of the corner of his eye, he could see one of the Aurors attempting to transfigure the suits of armor into trunks.

"Good idea.. we should make it small and portable." After all, Boggarts can take on any size. He could transfer one of the vases into a purse. Darej however, could see the danger was only going to get worse as more arrived. "Riddikulus!" His voice boomed to his regular volume, he would laugh at the sight of the figure falling to a mass of sheets.

Your Worst Nightmare | Not Riddikulus at All

The trunks were effective, perhaps even a bit overkill given that a single boggart could be kept at bay within the confines of a locked closet. But better safe than sorry at this point.

While a few of their kin were now successfully contained and ready for transport, the rest continued to swoop down in almost relentless numbers upon their wand wielding foes. Some forms grotesque and specific. Others split into segments of multiple fears and horrors. Others became almost comical looking hodgepodges of several shapes.

Their numbers overwhelming and with the upper hand, the present climate was an uphill battle...and you all caught on your heels.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

.....Boggarts.

Huh.

Of all the reasons to take her people out on a field mission. Boggarts. Don't get her wrong, it was a relief now knowing exactly what they were dealing with but it did make the mission far less dangerous than what warranted Auror protection. Furthermore, it effectively removed this from their jurisdiction.

Containment and relocation of magical creatures? That was a no brainer.

Lex watched Carter trap a few of them but couldn't help the shake of her head. "We'll be at this all day if we keep that up." While she hadn't reholstered her wand, the Department Head's stance was somewhat more relaxed. Constant vigilance, always, but like hell were boggarts unnerving enough to keep her on edge.

"This is Draper's case now. Creature control is far better at containment and relocation than we'll ever be. More efficient. Take what you've caught back with us. Maybe there's something different about this horde that'll need to be investigated before the Creatures Department heads back out here, but we're done."

Law Enforcement was not in charge of magical creatures. They were not tasked with wrangling Boggarts and the like. "We'll beat a retreat back to the gate. From there, we'll head back to the ministry. All of us." Even those outside her department. Knowing they were now dealing with Boggarts, it would have been a better idea to regroup and come up with a game plan specific to an infestation of this size, rather than spend Merlin knew how long trapping Circe knew how many boggarts before they made a dent in the place. They'd only be wasting time at this point. Might as well get the job done right.

That said, wand at the ready, Alexa began to back out of the castle. She expected they'd be coming along.

Welp, he wasn't going to cast any shrinking spells on the trunks now, lest he risk either setting the damn boggarts free again or damaging them beyond any and all ability to get viable samples. That would be sloppy work, and he wasn't about being sloppy. "I'll keep that in mind," he replied, still confident the trunks had been the better choice, boggarts did still like to move around after all and fabric did have a tendency to rip....

Feeling relief that the trunks had worked, on some of them at least (even if they were overkill), Ronan cast a silent Wingardium Leviosa on the trunks and did some quick wandwork to make the trunks follow without taking up the use of his wand the whole time. After all, Alexa was right, this fell under Creatures territory, not theirs. Also backing his way out of the castle (after all, never turn your back on an enemy, even if said enemy was easily [usually] defeated by school children) now, trunks following as requested.

Alexa was right, this wasn't their scene anymore and Emilia was glad to hear it, honestly. Still, going back to the office meant some semblance of calm and quiet, which meant having to process all that she'd just seen. It had been a lot, even with the end result being something as seemingly harmless as boggarts. It all seemed so...wrong. Childred had died, been displaced, over boggarts. It made her head spin.

Glancing at Darej, she gave the man a small, fleeting smile before following her boss out. He'd been by her side through this and she wouldn't forget it.

Jake had managed a small smile in Emilia's direction after her comment, but the continued onslaught from the boggarts had taken his attention soon after that.

Just as he was starting to think that there were simply too many for them to all take down at this point, Alexa spoke up, and her words were most welcome. Not necessarily because of the fear thing, though he would be happy to get away from this feeling, but because the task currently seemed like it was frankly impossible. Let the DMC come up with a plan to manage and contain, it was exactly what they were trained to do.

Casting a glance towards the trunks, Jake noted that Ronan had the situation covered, so he too started to back away and retreat from the boggarts, quite ready to leave the castle.

James Draper was mildly amused to say the least. They brought three entire departments to investigate a case of Boggarts. It was certainly one of the more ridiculous situations they’ve had to deal with as a department. How a hoard of Boggarts managed to infiltrate the school would surely be an interesting case to discuss…

Once they made it back to the Ministry, of course.

”I need some of you to help with barriers, to keep the infestation contained within the castle’s confines, but otherwise we’ll be coming back with an effective game plan later.” Essentially echoing Alexa. Now that they knew what they were dealing with, they could come back better prepared. There was hardly any use in putting together an ineffective plan right this moment.

No offense, but this case was turning out to be a gigantic headache.

James took one last look around before making his way out.

Oh, how we drift away from our friends. And the ones back home play remember when

Ursula felt annoyed. Who in their right mind would bring a whole heap of Boggarts to Hogwarts? When she got the memo she thought it would be something like a Dementor. At least, a solution was within easy reach. She was ready to help if needed. Just say the word.

Dead?!

No, it couldn’t be. There would have been no reason for her to be anywhere NEAR Hogwarts, which certainly helped Simon break free from the effects of the boggart he had first stumbled upon apparently. The security man did mentally berate himself for falling for the original image as a ministry coworker in the first place. “Riddikulus!” he cast at the fallen form, erasing the presence of his hurt or dead wife from the stone floor into an innocent ragdoll suitable for his daughter to play with before vanishing it.

Now clear of the effects, he could take note of the echoing of his spellcasting around him throughout the surrounding mists. But there wasn’t much reprieve as a rather large influx of boggarts made their own appearance, causing all sorts of horrific scenes to play before the assembled group of ministry members. Better prepared this time around, Simon was ready to act, casting the Riddikulus spell repeatedly at the forms as they attacked him.

When Lex’s voice cut through the spell casting, the older man was ready to agree with turning this all over to the more experienced in the matter. And it didn’t have anything to do with the fact that law enforcement tended to have enough horrors to deal with already than worst fears. Simon worked his way carefully backwards, occasionally getting off another round of spells to keep things clearer.

It came down to this, huh?

Darej could see the oncoming attack unfolding even as a number of boggarts were transported into the conjured trunks, more just kept coming. They were going to be overtaken at this rate.

They would need to re-strategize. Now well aware that his department would be handling this, "Right.." confirming James' order. He didn't chance a glance back at the others, in case others slipped though. The chance he took, however, was to allow him and others some time to fall back, "Protego Maxima!" Aiming upward to allow a large barrier to block them off while he slowly retreated backward each time. They could keep them in the castle for now.

Caleb didn't know what the boggart would turn into. It was just a bunch of voices, but he tried.

Eliora was still furious. In the back of her mind she was planning training exercises and a personal ridiculing of the employees she was most disappointed in. And boy would they know she was disappointed. She knew that they were there as extra hands initially with law enforcement heading up the search, and that was reason enough for Eliora to return to the bodies of the missing teenagers and begin taking her own array of samples. She trusted Alexa and her team more than she trusted her own right now and that was hard hitting and for the briefest of seconds she considered walking away right then.

But with the realisation of what they were up against, Eliora heard the calls to retreat and straightened up where she was standing. With a whistle, she drew the attention to her and with a nod of her head encouraged her employees to get helping James with the protection barriers. She was busy carefully digging the ground away from the teenagers.

Because they were taking them with them today. There was no return mission for these bodies. And if they were leaving them, then they were leaving Eliora with them. Because who knew if the bodies would be here when they returned.

Oh, how we drift away from our friends. And the ones back home play remember when

Ursula didn't like the look on Eliora's face. She would cross that bridge when she came to it. For now, she was putting up protection barriers ("Protego Maxima"), carefully making sure Hogwarts would be protected and the Boggarts would be contained within the confines of where they had been trapped.

Amrita's hand shook when the Boggarts first surged at them, her wand threatening to fall as her eyes took in the images before her. Jasmine, her bab--

She knew what this was. There was no way Jasmine was here, when she was at home, safe, with her father when she left only a few hours ago. Her suspicions were confirmed as Jake cast the Boggart-Banishing Charm, and she began casting the Slavic version of the same spell that they had learned in Durmstrang. She really had not been trained to capture boggarts, but YATI training had at least taught her to recognise them.

Alexa's call for retreat was her saving grace. She really was not enjoying the onslaught of grotesque visions, and it was really only adrenaline that was keeping her from passing out or doing something incredibly stupid, like screaming.

Her eyes scanned the crowd, looking for Benzi. If one of them went home, she had always told herself that it would be him, but this was not their jurisdiction, and this was not a life-or-death situation. They were both going home today. She grabbed his elbow and jerked her head towards the exit.

"Come on, let's go."

They were aurors, they were offensive magicians. This was not their specialty.

follow me; everything is all right.

A different sort of melancholy settled itself over Hogwarts and its grounds. The missing students had been found and their bodies safely retrieved, the culprits of the plight had been identified, all Ministry personnel were leaving the scene mostly unscathed, the boggarts had been successfully contained within the castle with all exiting passageways blocked off, and there was some light at the end of the tunnel at last.

But there was still a long road ahead. A very long and winding one.

Just how did one remove such a massive infestation of boggarts from a castle so intricate in its design and furnishings as Hogwarts was?

A query for another day.

Another time.

If April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring?

If the Ministry of Magic has any say in the matter, that will be the complete eviction of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry's current residents.

Undisturbed since the previous attempt, the mist surrounding the castle has dissipated entirely. Instead the thick as pea soup haze has crept through every corridor and wrapped around every nook of the castle while the boggarts lurked freely. Hogwarts' intricate design was perfect for their kind and would not give it up so easily. Stepping in will be no different from before, vision beyond an arm’s length virtually impossible. Stepping inside the castle proper will be no different from before, vision beyond an arm’s length virtually impossible and a suffocating feeling of dread soon to be followed by the manifestation of your greatest fear.

At least now you know what you are facing as you and your fellow wizardkind cross the long stone bridge leading to the castle. And are better equipped this go around...

Well...here he was again and over yet another crisis.

Airey could only hope that one of these returns to Hogwarts would be for something docile like a good ol' School Visiting Day where parents got to sit in lectures and see what the day-to-day life of their children potentially looked like. Academically only, please. He really did not need to know too much about everything else and was still in denial that Andromeda was a proper teenager now.

Sweet solstice the potential forms his boggart could take now...

....he may actually miss the days where it was a feline version of Headmistress Treubridge that looked like something out of a 2020 film with digital fur technology.

Tucking his portkey back into his pocket for safe keeping, and hopefully would not be needing to activate again in an emergency situation, the Mysteries department head adjusted and straightened his tie - as if boggarts cared how polished and put together he looked in his suit - and then glanced over his shoulder at the rest of the employees that had come along for the task. "Wands out and remember, nothing you see once we pass through those double doors is real."

Well, Darej was back at Hogwarts again. Instead of being apart of a group with the mission to rescue the tragically lost students and surveying the danger, now he was tackling the danger. An army of boggarts leading him to face his worst fears. Something about that was exciting to Darej, who welcomed the challenge. His expression was focused as he surveyed the area while with his team. He wouldn't move until he was directed, but he was ready.

Now was the army inside ready for them?

Val was actually not planning to take part in this mission to rescue the school. That was the end goal, after all, rescuing a school. He would've rather spent his time in his work unraveling the next mysterious in the universe. So why was he here? Val knew better than to chase unpredictable danger but... this was a school. He had a little girl who may want to attend Hogwarts in the future since his spouse spoke highly of it. Why should a prestigious school be lost to such an unnatural force? There was an air of mystery involving this situation that intrigued him gradually and... here he was now. He was definitely not inexperienced with boggarts after enough recent training.

Val didn't need to be told twice about having his wand at the ready. He nodded at Airey's first order.

Was it weird to back here at Hogwarts? Absolutely, especially as one of few times she recalled her mama returning to Hogwarts not as a student or her one year stint as professor was years ago when she was a little girl for a Quidditch match. A friendly reason. A docile occasion.

The other weird thing about this moment? One of her professors just steps in front of her and Chloe had the weird inclination that she was seventeen years old again. Ridiculous notion, most definitely.

Wand out and she bit her tongue to keep from saying something inappropriate in that moment. It was time to be serious, right Professor Mr Flamsteed.
