Default Moribunds Pub



Overlooking the small staircase on the upper level, not far from Splinter and Kreek's, you'll find Knockturn Alley's premiere establishment. Unless you have business here, you will find the door to this pub is almost always locked. If it does happen to open for you, you’ll walk inside the pub, which is dimly lit by lanterns that throw out an eerie orange light. You may feel a distinct creeping feeling up your spine and that isn’t unusual, maybe you should trust your instincts and go somewhere else? The floor in Moribund’s pub is made up of uneven slabs of stone, darkened by age and from the build up of all sorts of grime. The heavy door closes silently behind you as you enter.

In addition to the lanterns, a candlestick sits on each table. Only the candles on occupied tables are lit, though they barely provide enough illumination to see by. The bartender watches you closely, almost accusingly. Its obvious that not just anyone is welcome in Moribunds. They serve food here and it’s surprisingly good but hardly the reason most of the regulars frequent the pub. Children are not welcome in Moribunds; of age witches and wizards only.

You could always return to Knockturn Alley of course, and you might just end up flat on your bum in the street if you cross the wrong people.

Normally he would've greeted the other patrons in true rockstar fashion by shouting, "What's up, dudes?!" and giving a rock horn hand sign, but somehow he didn't think that would go over too well here.

He ordered a glass of firewhisky but decided against any food. He really wasn't a fan of this English food; he preferred the fare back home in France. Merlin, he wondered how Gaston managed to survive on this slop for nine months on end! He'd have to ask him the next time he saw him! Lucien's dark eyes scanned the room and eventually found an open seat beside a girl who looked about his son's age, maybe a few years older. "This seat taken?" he asked.
Darcy looked around. It was obvious that the place was somewhat dead today, it didn't help her mood. She hated this, her DNA oozed evil and it was high time that her family name stopped being associated with good. She took another sip of her wine, of course she knew that she was quite a beautiful sight, but as with a lot of things she could be poisonous. Sighing, she began to mentally go through the next step, meeting her Malfoy family. She must have been completely lost in thought because she clearly did not hear the older gentleman come in. ”You may join me. "

Lucien flashed the girl one of his trademark smiles as he took the empty seat beside her. "Thanks, chérie," he said, running a hand through his blood-red streaked blond hair. The ladies loved when he did that! Maybe this girl was a fan? Probably not though, seeing as she wasn't screaming and pawing all over him. Oh well, her loss.

She does know who I am, right? he thought. Normally the French rockstar needed no introduction, but in this case, he thought he'd throw the girl a bone. "I'm Lucien Chevallier," he introduced himself. "What's your name?"

Darcy raised an eyebrow, so this was the famous Lucien Chevallier. That was nice to know, Darcy loved his music as well as the next teenage witch. However she was also quite aware that Lucien was married and that friendship was all that could happen so she felt that she would do them both a disservice by fangirling all over him. "Hello Lucien, it is a genuine pleasure to meet you. My name is Darcy Black.” she held out her hand to him.

"Forgive me for not screaming and fawning all over you Lucien, I feel that genuineness is best. Have a drink with me."

Lucien smiled, setting his glass on the counter in front of him. This girl definitely had style, he'd give her that... even if she wasn't a fan! "Oh trust me, the pleasure's mine, Darcy," he replied as he shook her hand. His expression changed slightly. Black? That name sounded familiar... where had he heard it before? He probably should've paid more attention in History of Magic when he was in school! Then he finally remembered the pureblood supremacist family that Harry Potter's godfather had once been a part of. And wasn't one of them a headmaster of Hogwarts? "You're not related to the Blacks, are you?" Probably not. He supposed Black was probably a common name here in England.

He raised an eyebrow. So she had heard of him? The lack of fangirling had thrown him off. "You're forgiven," he said with a slight chuckle. It was kind of a nice change of pace to talk to someone who wasn't gushing over him! He laughed. "How could I say no to an invitation like that? But just one, alright?" He liked having fun as much as the next guy, but he didn't want to give the tabloids any ideas!

Erec truthfully wasn't sure why he had agreed to come here of all place,
but this is where Albert wanted to go after work and after the day the two men had he couldn't say no to the drink. This entire day with the eggs was chaos and he couldn't get the feeling to go away that the entire investigation would be this way. He knew he had to give it over to MLE soon and he was glad to be able to do that. He was so done with it and wanted to move on. He had other things to figure out.

Once he finally made his way down to the alley he tried to keep away from Erec moved to go into the pub. Why this place? He still couldn't figure it out, be he really didn't know Albert either. Should he be concerned about what type of man he was or if he was part of the egg things? No, Erec was being silly and paranoid so he moved in and found a seat at the bar.

Perhaps it was the lighting, perhaps it was the overall quiet atmosphere that attracted Albert to this place...or maybe, it was the hushed voices that echoed around the pub that made him...excitable. Dark alleys and pubs such as Moribund's offered the perfect place to exchange intel. Rarely does the MLE venture in here, considering that its patrons are relatively harmless. All things considered, it was the best place to stay if one wanted to be 10 steps ahead of someone's game.

A medium sized, unopened bottle of Ogden's Old Firewhisky was on the table, and a couple of clean clear glasses were set in front of the high-profile looking man. Albert did not bother to remove his coat, well aware of the fact that he came from the higher echelon of the wizarding government. Instead, he masked himself with the face of a serious businessman. He was, of course, one, but definitely not part of the black market. He has, after all, a family name to honour and uphold.

Albert had been brooding in the dark corner, wondering if Erec stood him up. He meant well, but more often than not, he was accused of doing the opposite. Perhaps it was his proud posture, or the perpetual unamused look on his face, or the raised chin that seemed to be always present when engaged with people he didn't know. Nevertheless, the man was not bothered, or at the very least, concerned about his outward appearance.

The older gentleman looked up, his icy blue eyes shone in the darkness as he waited for Erec to take notice and watched him sit at the bar. Albert let out a huff, disgusted with his choice of seating. It would've been easier to call him over, but apparently, in Moribund's, it was unnatural for someone to wave at a person and appear friendly. Perhaps, it was another reason why he liked it here, better than at the Leaky's.

No pretence, just plain business.

Ordering a drink he hoped to maybe calm his nerves being in this place before he saw Albert. If he had looked behind him he may have noticed the man in the dark corner, but for now he hadn't. He still was trying to wrap his head around why here. As he put the drink to his lips he watched as someone else lingered near the bar. Mentally he made sure his wand was right where it should be in case he needed it.

Erec might be jumpy, but he felt he had his reason since his own employee was attacked in this alley. His eyes became more focused as the darkness became the norm. Eyes sweeping the area he noticed others that he hadn't when he first came in and sitting in the corner was the man he thought he was waiting for.

Getting up he made his way over and took a seat without waiting for it to be offered. "Hope you weren't waiting long. I didn't notice you at first."

Blue eyes remained on the man he was waiting for, and he did put an effort to quirk up the side of his lips when Erec finally took notice. For those who do not know him well, including Erec perhaps, he would've looked sinister and full of bad news. Albert watched Erec coolly as he made himself comfortable across him, and simply nodded in reply. "I suppose you had something else in mind, aside from meeting me here." Albert had to find logic behind Erec's excuse, and for some reason, that just might be it.

"Trust me, Mr Delacroix, I have waited longer than 15 minutes." he said as he removed the gloves from his hands, and reached out for the bottle of whisky on the table and opened it, pouring a glass for Erec first and then for himself. "Today was something, was it not?" the older employee started as he got his glass of neat whisky and raised it as if to say cheers. His lips found the soothing liquid, took a sip, and let out a sigh as he placed his glass down on the table without a sound. "You gave us quite the predicament back there." Albert continued giving Erec an amused nod, as he crossed his legs under the table.

He couldn't help but give an odd look when he was asked about why he wanted to meet. Could the man never gain any friends or was being a department head a cursed position in the British ministry for that? "After what my department just put you through I thought maybe we could both use a drink." He knew the egg issue was a struggle and he was just glad no one got hurt by the basilisks.

Taking another drink he looked around the place. "Yes, I know I did. It wasn't in my reports at all that basilisk eggs had been slipped in. This changes everything about the investigation. More hours in the office." He was certainly not looking forward to that. "I guess at least we had you around to help. I couldn't imagine if it was just us on our own. How long have you been working for the ministry?" Erec felt he should know more about the other departments, but he was still learning.

Beavers Are Adorable : Dancing Lobster : Mrs. Charlie Weasley : Seneca's Beard : That's So Fetch

No longer needing to be at the Ministry as the workday was over, Dante ordered himself a firewhisky and nestled himself in his usual dark corner. He was, more or less, a regular here now. Not wanting to return to the estate, where there was only the elf to keep him company, just yet and finding the atmosphere of the Leaky Cauldron to be too family-friendly, the pub was like home to him.

The only downfall of the pub, which he was mulling over as he took a long sip of his drink, was that it wasn't the cleanest of places. The Frenchman considered offering to temporarily loan Garçon to the bartender to clean the place or, better yet, wipe some poor soul's memory and give him a new purpose. After savouring the drink and swallowing he decided against both options. The place was probably like this for aesthetic reasons, to match with the rest of Knockturn.

Quietly setting down the glass, his eyes looked out to the rest of the pub and fluttered from one patron to the next. There tended to usually be some interesting characters there to casually watch from afar.

Interesting was right.

Ezekiel sat just a few seats further down from the guy, shaking like a leaf in the middle of a storm. Something was wrong, something was terribly wrong. In his head, little images danced around, taunting him...threatening him....laughing at him.

It was that witch.

He'd shafted her on a deal and it felt like he'd had the jitters ever since. Dark eyes fell on the man (Dante), his glass shaking in his hand. "What're you looking at?" He shouted suddenly. His impulses were on edge. Everything felt on edge. What had she injected him with? It felt like a fire had been lit under his skin, one that only calmed itself with movement.

"You think you're better than me? HUH??!!" It was the potion talking. His eyes flashed wildly about the pub. "You think you're all better than me?!" The voices said they did.

One moment he was sipping on his fire whisky and people watching, the next he was being shouted at by soon whack job. Dante couldn't help but murmur a choice word under his breath in French. This was not what he had signed up for. Maybe it would've been better had he skipped out on the pub today and just went straight home.

He remained in his corner, still like a deer in wand light. What had been a second-long gaze at the man before had turned into a blank stare. It was tempting to immediately reach for his wand, but he knew any sudden movement was bound to be a bad idea. One had to be very careful around crazy, especially in places like Knockturn Alley.

"Easy, man," he finally said, still watching with caution and realizing now just how much the bloke was shaking. What was this guy's deal? "Everything's going to be alright." Hopefully.

”Nothing’s gonna be alright! You don’t know anything! Don’t try to tell me I’ll be fine when you’ve got NO,” He rose quite suddenly, thrashing his hand and knocking his drink right off the counter. “idea.”

It earned him a few casual turns of the head and the odd dirty look but no one got up. They must’ve known. They must’ve all known.

Ezekiel turned to the only man who really paid him any mind. “It won’t stop. I can’t make it stop.” In one swift motion, he rushed right over to him, clutching tightly at the bloke’s shirt and shaking him. His eyes were wild, pupils dilated and his breathing erratic. Anyone who saw would be of the impression he was entirely out of his mind, or very close to being so.

In some way, even he knew it was true.

“She got me....she got me....she got me...” He whispered loudly, swear now seeping from his pours. Poor lighting aside, looking closely enough you could tell he was beginning to lose colour.

Nothing was going to be alright? Dante could brush man's dramatics aside. However, he could not do the same for the comment about him not knowing anything. Sure, he might not know exactly what made the guy insane, but he believed he was a rather intelligent person that knew things ... and could erase things if he wanted.

Instead of responding, because he was now OVER the situation, he reached for his drink and finished it in one gulp. The whisky going down his throat was satisfying. At least it was for the split second he had to enjoy it before the nut case was clinging onto his shirt and shaking him. Taking by surprise, the glass his drink had been in dropped to the floor and shattered.

"What the hell!" Dante shouted, trying to nudge the guy off him. "Get off of me!" The guy had seconds to back away before he wiped him clean.

And then the crazed man started going on about how she 'got' him. What the devil did that mean? Got him with what? He had no clue. All he could tell was that the bloke was sweating up a storm and looking pale.

He didn’t let go, in fact his grip tightened on the man while he shook uncontrollably. Ezekiel would have given anything to make it stop. Just a moment’s reprieve to collect his thoughts. But then what? Law enforcement? They’d never believe him. What would he even tell them? They’d find out things they didn’t need to know.

No. This guy would have to do. “You gotta help me! You gotta help me! His voice cracked as he screamed the second go of it. Quite suddenly, he withdrew, his hands rushing to his stomach with the new feeling of being sucker punched despite there being no one there to do such a thing. He cried out but if anyone in the pub was surprised by the behaviour, they didn’t show it.

Silent stares met him. Telling stares. The kind that spoke to some level of awareness and reluctance to get involved.

Once the pain subsided, he looked to the bloke again. “Money! Y-You want money?? Here! Take it, just please.” His hands shook violently as he reached into his pocket and fished out a few coins. He threw them to the floor, more a result of his declining motor skills than anything else.

In this moment, he wished his glass hadn't fallen out of his hand and became several pieces on the floor. Dante was sure that it would've made a great blow, a way to get the crazy man off of him. But the bloke's grip on him tightened, and the Frenchman was slowly, very slowly, inching a hand toward his wand.

And then the guy was screaming, pleading for him to help. But the Obliviator wasn't sure what to do besides knock him out or wipe his memory (which, Dante assumed, wouldn't really help resolve anything). Maybe there would be hope if he could somehow get the whack job to St. Mungo's...

The instant he had been released, he quickly pulled out his wand and pointed it at. He watched as the man put his hands to his stomach and reacted in a way that made it seem like he had been punched in the gut.

What was this guy's deal?

"I don't need your money. I've got plenty of it," he said simply, leaving the coins on the floor for whoever wanted them. His eyes were focused on the person in front of him. "What did 'she' do to you?" Some context would be nice, otherwise he was just going to leave and let the crazy be.

"I DON'T KNOW!!"

The shaking had grown worse, and the man looked dangerously close to losing whatever he may or may not have had for lunch. He didn't know what she'd done, all he knew was that it hurt something fierce and the visions that danced across his head were becoming more terrifying with each passing second.

"I was in a room--her room--I don't know. It was business, I didn't know it wouldn't pull through." How could he have? Equally, how could he have known the witch would've taken it all so personally and placed whatever she'd placed on him. "It was the bloody muggles, man." He swore loudly then, his memory of the event drifting in and out before a sharp pain ran through his skull.

"Listen, help me."

Was it a coincidence that despite all his pleas, no one else in the pub dared look at him for more than a few seconds? Maybe. Maybe not.
