Default Lair of Despair


Secret passageways and hidden rooms are generally considered features of haunted houses or grand mansions, but in 16th Century England, these mysterious rooms and passageways became commonplace thanks to the Protestant Reformation. Any witch or wizard versed in history should know that the Ministry of Magic was built on top of the Department of Mysteries, which dates back to at least 1672. So why wouldn’t this building also have a secret means of concealment or escape that could be used at a moment’s notice?

This particular entrance was an unlit circular staircase that went down and down, stopping at a small corridor that diverged out. Soft chirping noises, guano on the floor, and the smells might remind a few employees of the year the Ministry had reverted to using owls instead of interdepartmental memos. One path to the left was flat for a meter or two and then started an upward climb. A path to the right curved and disappeared into darkness so black one might believe Lumos would not pierce it. The path most directly ahead? Well, it was marked with dark splotches as if something bloody had been carried or dragged through there.

To anyone brave enough to follow the gruesome path, at the end they would find a room that once was meant to function as a safe room, but now looked more like the lair of an animal. Bluebell flames trapped under a bell jar on a ledge high on the wall cast eerie shadows on the bed in the corner that looked more like a nest. The wooden table and chair in the middle of the room were littered with remnants of fur and feathers. Piles of bones lay in the corners, and from the looks of them, the bones had been there for a year or two.

Was Ronan surprised by the secret passages? Nope, not at all. History may not have been his strongest subject, but he did alright. Choosing to follow the path ahead, the one where the blood trail picked back up again, he forged ahead. After awhile, the corridor ended in what could only be described as a scene from a horror movie. The bluebell flames did nothing but add to the horror aspect of the room. "Either I was wrong, or our vampire's a student of a certain 'love story'." And yes, air quotes were used. Also, yes he was referring to the fur and feathers.

Hadn’t it been for the immensely tense situation, Brody would have laughed. Clearly he wasn’t the only one being annoyed by Damian. Though he suspected if the man kept it up, Brody would snap. Damian was the least of their problems right now. While Ronan was not surprised about a secret passage, the DIMC Coordinator was. More specifically, he was surprised that they had stumbled upon one.

Brody wished he had a couple extra pairs of eyes. It was logical that he wished that right now. Hello, there were so many things to be seen. Not to mention so many possibilities of creatures to look out for. His nose wrinkled at the smells, his mind jogging him back those times owls had been used in the Ministry.

As he walked forward with Ronan, the beam of light that had lighted from his wand was suddenly put out. Not that the light was really needed a short while later. Brody’s mouth fell open slightly in a gape as he surveyed the scene.

“Since whatever it is isn’t here now,’’ Brody began having found his voice once more. “It could have heard us coming and hidden somewhere.” Merlin knew how big this secret place was. “You need to collect anything for lab work, Ronan?”

Tales would be told about this day. How the three brave wizards from different departments descended into the bowels of the ministry to face the monster who caused so much horror. The storytellers would not mention the fear in their hearts, or how they were at each other's throats. Whether the tale would end in triumph or tragedy was still to be determined.

Damian trailed silently behind the other two wizards. Watching their backs while refusing to show them his. The Ministry had tried to cover up the nature of these attacks, and the unspeakable did not want to risk being a loose end, as paranoid as that thought was. He had been independently investigating the various bloody crime scenes for over a year, and Jane's attack was the final piece of the puzzle that began with the death of Nero Nykto. This monster, this vampire, had struck too close to the Death Chamber.

As Ronan and Brody began to talk about the grisly scene before them, Damian was looking upwards. "Bats." He whispered. Relying on the blue flames to see something that could probably see, smell, and hear them in darkness seemed foolish. They walked towards the flames like moths, and were now in the middle of the killing floor.

"Vespertilio aspectrum." Damian muttered, closing his eyes. Now he could see as the bats saw. Inaudible ultrasonic waves pinged off the surrounding environment. To the little ears that could hear, his wand sounded just like another bat, another voice in the high frequency cacophony unheard by human ears.

Did he look disappointed and slightly frustrated? Because Ronan was definitely feeling those two emotions right now. His white whale had managed to elude him once more and Damian was still managing to make a nuisance of himself. Did bats have FEATHERS? Absolutely not, they had fur like other mammals. And those were definitely feathers on the floor with the fur, which he was pretty sure was not bat fur. Also, bats didn't chirp-birds did.

He was going to make a dark joke about finding a certain predecessor of a certain current annoyance, but then he remembered that those two had been spotted among the Inferi at the Battle of Hogwarts and thought better of it.

"Yeah, guess I better," he replied, sounding resigned. Resigned to having to let the whole thing go. Which wasn't sitting exactly well with the auror, not just because of auror-y reasons but because of personal reasons that absolutely had everything to do with the scar on his hand and absolutely nothing to do with other feelings that he may or may not have been feeling before a certain revelation. "But first..." He stepped towards a certain annoyance (Damian) and cawed like a crow. Loudly. Into his ear.

Mean? Yes. Immature? Also yes. But it made him feel slightly better.

Ronan summoned the evidence kit again, opening it once he'd caught it and slipping on a pair of latex gloves. Gloves on and possibly snapped a couple of times, he went around the room and bagged up pieces of evidence, labeling and sending the bags along to the level two forensics lab as he went. A few feathers here, some fur there, a few scrapings from the bones....

Perhaps that caw wasn’t a good idea Mr. Carter because down one of those unchosen paths skulked the being the trio was looking for. The two men really should have listened to Mr. Hawthorne, because the noise from the cawing and the snapping gloves was as loud as a muggle fire alarm to the vampire’s ears. If they had hoped to take him unaware, well, even a deaf mole rat would have been able to hear the racket being made.

Yes, there were bats down here Mr. Pendragon. The tunnels down here were full of bats, in case the guano on the ground hadn't made that obvious. Goldwasser had not only been in darkness and silence scraping by like an animal for the last two years, but he had also been living with only bats and rats as his companions. It wouldn't be the first time he'd had to survive in such terrible conditions. Azkaban hadn't been an all inclusive resort nor had the catacombs of Paris. Furthermore, it had been a while since he'd had the chance to really play with anyone and well, fear only made his meals taste better. If they wanted bats, well, bats he could give them. With a twist of his hand he summoned one colony and with a silent Oppugno Jinx, sent the bats onward into the safe room.

Of all the dangerous, immature things. There were dead birds on the floor, and live bats on the ceiling. Damian knew which one he was. But this was not the time to bicker with the auror. "Keep the sense of humor. Helps distract from the horror." The unspeakable spoke, barely above a whisper. The loud caw in his ear turned his echolocation into a blinding screech.

The ringing in his ears began to subside just in time for him to hear the call. A hypersonic cry of unwilling participants in this wizarding war. Before the others realized what was happening, Damian tried to shove Ronan behind him with one hand, while the other struck his wand against the ground. With the strike, his wand produced a barely audible screech, but he hoped it would be enough to distract the flock of bats as he then held his wand aloft. If it didn't work, he would be defenseless.

Such heroic nonsense.

Oh, that bit wasn't from his humor but his sheer irritation with the other man. The irritation was only increased when he was shoved behind Damian (what was he, a damsel in distress?) as a colony of bats descended upon them. But irritation quickly turned into....smugness? when a sudden realization hit him. Bats don't typically act like that, which meant......

Ronan's expression of disappointment shifted into a smirk as he fired off three silent spells in quick succession. The first was an Expelliarmus in the direction the colony had come from. The other two were patronuses (patronui?) in the direction of level two. Moving out from behind the other wizard, he stalked in the Oppugno caster's direction, stopping about halfway there to be sure he was out of reaching distance. Goldwasser wanted to play? So be it. "I would offer you a blood pop, since you just threw your snacks at us, but it seems I left them upstairs." He decided not to comment on the irony of a vampire surviving on bats.

By this point in life, Brody had decided that Damian was quite useless. So now he was basically ignoring the older man for the time. Not even the muttered words, which sounded like an incantation, had him bothered enough to spare Damian a glance. Despite the ugly scene before them, despite the tenseness he felt, Brody immediately barked out a short laugh. It looked like Ronan had a sense of humor after all. Was Damian going to get anymore attention now? No. Instead, Brody watched Ronan work with interest. He had never really taken much notice of Aurors in their element but that had changed after meeting Gabriel.

“Protego Duo!” Brody threw up a Shield Charm the moment he realised what was happening - the attack of the bats. But like Ronan, who was taking refuge behind their ‘friend’ he thought it to attack the direction the bats came from. Whatever lurked there most likely sent the bats attacking. “Petrificus Totalus!”

Brody didn't lower his wand afterwards. It remained trained in the direction of which they had attacked. He waited, his heart thudding in his ears, waiting for whatever lurked there to bust out at them.

The bats were meant as more of a distraction. Bain wasn’t about to let the men who had wandered into his lair leave. To do so meant they would come back with reinforcements and he still had not figured out how to rescue the cause. It was one of the reasons he hadn’t fled yet. He watched as the body binding curse shot down the corridor the bats had come from. And then he noticed two silvery meerkats running off down the corridor. That wasn’t good. He shot a spell after them, in an attempt to stop them, but it was too late. Off they sped, likely in search of reinforcements. Well, he would just have to work fast.

A low growl built in his chest as another spell was shot his way. His wand slipped into his hand. Mr. Carter’s taunting fell on experienced ears. He wasn’t foolish enough to let them get to him. The bats however? Well, they continued to shriek and click and circle overhead, only enraged by Pendragon’s spell. Another spell hit the wall next to him, a little too close for comfort. Metelojinx,” he said casting the spell towards the lair. A loud crack of thunder sparked from the tip of his wand as the thunderstorm shot forward.

Focus.

Cuts opened across his face as a hundred sets of claws and fangs flew past.

Focus.

Thunder crashed, ringing loudly in his ears.

Focus.

Nearly blinded by bats, and deafened by thunder, Damian stood his ground. The rain stabbed his wounds like a thousand tiny needles, while the wind howled and tried to push him back. "LUMOS-"

His teeth threatened to chatter, and his hands threatened to shake, but he held steady. "-SOLARIS!"

A ray of pure sunlight cut through the darkness. Damian grasped his wand with both hands while the angry finger of Sol stabbed the ceiling. And then with all his strength he pulled the beam down toward where the veiled assault was coming from.

Another who was having the growls build in his chest? This guy. Only it wasn't towards the vampire or the storm he'd conjured up. No, it was towards the guy who just COULDN'T LET THE AUROR HAVE HIS REVENGE AGAINST THE VAMPIRE WHO'D BITTEN HIM, TWO OF HIS FELLOW MLE'ERS AND HAD MADE THEM CHASE HIM FOR TWO YEARS!!!!!! Not to mention the betrayal he felt towards the vampire for ~reasons~.

"NO!" Oops. Had that been out loud? Too late to take it back now. Instead, Ronan took the opportunity to cast a silent Finite Incantatem to cancel both the weather charm and the light spell and casting a still silent Incarcerous in Goldwasser's direction before rounding on Damian. "Are you trying to make it easier for him to see us?! Because that makes me think you don't really get the depravity we're dealing with here!" he hissed, both genuinely angry now and trying to cover the implications behind his outburst. Merlin, he hoped his coworkers got here soon before he did something he might end up regretting. Or before he ended up slipping more and letting out his secret feelings of at least being intrigued by the vampire if not downright attracted to him.

Brody’s early nervousness was only replaced by annoyance. Annoyance at the bats and annoyance at Goldwasser. He swore, not caring if his companions heard, the moment the Weather Modifying Charm took effect. Obviously Goldwasser was still pretty much determined to not go down without a fight.

Suddenly blinded, Brody threw up his free arm to shield himself from the light that stabbed at his corneas. WHAT THE…? It was only Ronan’s chastising that made him realise that Damian was the one who had cast that particular spell. That and the fact that Brody belatedly registered in his mind the incantation being said in Damian’s voice.

“You’re really no help AT ALL,’’ the DIMC Coordinator snarled at the Mysteries employee quite crossly. He blinked, trying to get his eyes readjusted to the surroundings, shot a glare at Damian then whispered to Ronan. “I don’t think taunting Goldwasser is a good strategy right now. Maybe save it for after he’s captured?”

Oh yeah. Had Brody let his guard down during this time? No. His wand was still pointed in Goldwasser’s general direction and he was practically straining his ears and eyes for sudden movements.

Pendgraon’s spell lit up the room like a noon-day sun on the solstice. The bats shrieked and then took off out of the room and down the corridor seeing a way out and away from the light. Anyone coming down the corridor would meet a second onslaught of bats.

Was that a cracking overhead? Yes, yes it was. These hidden passageways and rooms were old and hadn’t been maintained over the years. The crack turned into a rumble and the beam came down with a loud crash.




As the dust settled, it became clear that rubble blocked the entrance. Pendragon’s spell had literally brought down the house effectively locking the men inside the lair.

The lumos and the solaris spells gave him just enough time to get bearings on how many people were in the room and where each of them were. If the light had been intended to bother him, well, besides making his eyes ache, it didn’t do much. Vampires preferred the dark; sunlight didn't really hurt them, so much as make them cranky. He didn’t care that someone had countered the thunder storm spell, it had mostly been a distraction as he moved closer to the safe room.

While the three bickered, Bain had thrown up a shield charm and had gotten a good look at the room. He now had a better idea of who he was dealing with. Carter and two - who knew what they were, but they certainly weren’t aurors. Aurors and hit wizards wouldn’t be bickering like this. Carter was his primary concern, then it seemed. The incarcerous charm bounced off his shield, weakening it considerably. ”Brachiabindo,” he shot at Carter. He followed that up with a well aimed ”Stupify,” at the other two men.

A rock struck him on the shoulder, momentarily distracting him. Then he heard it. The cracking noise. Fools. All of them. What had they done? He dove into the lair looking rather sprightly despite his 256 years. He rolled and landed on his feet in a crouch, tossing up another shield in case more of the ceiling came down as he took stock of his surroundings. ”You three,” he snarled upon realizing that the entrance was blocked. ”Are complete imbeciles.” And lunch. But that seemed to be obvious at this point.

The cracking and rumbling had Ronan swearing. It seemed that Damian's spell had somehow weakened the structure of the ancient passageway just enough to bring it crashing down around them. "This is why you should never be allowed anywhere!" he snarled at the Unspeakable.

It was then that he heard some shuffling behind him, which could only mean one thing: they were now trapped with the vampire. He moved to quickly dodge Goldwasser's spells, taking full stock of the situation. Yep, they were trapped with a vampire. "Well, one of us is. The one that thinks he's the savior of the world despite being a lowly Unspeakable." he shot back, sounding resigned. "So, is this the part where you ask me if I've ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight or do we just get into it?" Because there was going to be a fight, he was sure of it. He just hoped there wouldn't be any fire this time.

"Protego." Damian had defended himself just as casually as Goldwasser had attacked. The unspeakable thought they were past such formalities after he tried to scorch the flesh from the vampire's bones.

"You forget who your enemy is, Ronan. I would almost think that you are trying to protect him." He spat back at the auror. Damian studied ancient druidic tomes to find the right sunlight spell. Lost for generations because it couldn't be used for gardening, but the unspeakable had other intentions for the concentrated rays of the sun.

Unperturbed with another Batman reference, Damian took full view of the monster that haunted his dreams. "Goldwasser. I imagined you taller." There was no escape for anyone, and he would have it no other way. The rapid beats of their hearts playing the opening notes of the Danse Macarbe. "Shall we fight as wizards, or monsters?" He held his wand out, ready to drop it if Bain wanted to do the same.

Goldwasser's affliction did not make him a monster Hate made monsters of good men. Damian was a kind, noble soul. But faced with he who caused so much suffering to the people he cared about, his heart grew cold and savage. They both had a thirst for blood. Their only difference was that only one of them had fangs.

"No, you once again misread both me and the room." The pale moonlight comment had been meant for Goldwasser, not Damian, who was but a mere fly to swat to him now. After all, he was thisclose to catching the vampire he and the rest of the MLE had been chasing ever since the Neo-Alliance had come crashing down and the Unspeakable-with-the-overblown-ego refused to step aside and let the grown-ups handle things.

"Are you gonna bite or burn him like you did me? Be my guest, it'll be our little secret," he told Goldwasser, smirking as he said it. Maybe experiencing that agony would teach the arrogant Unspeakable a thing or two. But probably not, he seemed the type that just didn't learn. And also saw the world in black-and-white instead of the shades of grey it really was. And Ronan was really well shut of it. Possibly the comment about wanting to protect the vampire also had something to do with it too.

More swearing from Brody. Yes, he could be that foul mouthed in a life or death situation. He quickly raised an arm to press over his nose and mouth to shield out the dust. Merlin. It was the perfect time for Goldwasser to attack them and Brody expected spells to come raining through the dust. He may not have had the Auror training that Ronan had but he was prepared. That was why he saw the jet of red light zooming in his direction. Brody threw up the strongest Shield Charm he could manage to deflect the Stunning Charm.

A quick look to the entrance told him that it was now blocked. Great. Nice going Damian. Though his eyes and wand remained pointed at Goldwasser, he addressed Damian. “You. Unless you have anything helpful to contribute, then SHUT IT. If you have a brain, use it well.” Next, Ronan, “Full focus on Goldwasser. That’s where it needs to be.” So much testosterone here. GOSH. Brody would like to make it out alive, please and thanks.

His heart thudded as he tried to guess Goldwasser’s next more.

And try to figure out how he and Ronan could at least get out of here. In his opinion, Damian seemed to have a death wish so at this point in life, the man’s escape wasn’t important.

The Ministry’s Law Enforcement team had always been arrogant. It had been one of the first things Bain had noticed when he had taken over. It had also been one of the things he had planned on literally beating out of them in training. Training he had never gotten to implement because of mistakes that his colleagues in the Alliance had made. So Carter’s comments didn’t really surprise him. If he’d still been responsible for the auror, he might have pointed out that Unspeakables were probably more talented than Carter knew. They had to be in their line of work.

But since the two were clearly annoying each other, he didn’t. No need to help build bridges there. The more the three fought the less fighting he had to do and the quicker he would get to his dinner. Perhaps they would even take each other out.

His attention was pulled to the baby third man in the room. Bain watched him for a moment as his spell bounced off a shield spell that looked like it might have taken a lot of the other man’s energy. He shot Incendio Duo at the Auror and Unspeakable because, if Carter wanted fire, then he’d give Carter fire. AND before they could regroup he shot Flippendo at Brody.

Some Unspeakables might be talented, just not that particular one. And there was a reason for Ronan's supposed arrogance, but that spoke for itself.

Just like now. He moved smoothly out of the way of Goldwasser's Incendio, chuckling darkly. But, instead of saying what he was thinking, he took the opening the vampire's distraction afforded him. Hoping Brody both got out of the way of the stunning spell and that his shield held, Ronan fired off in quick succession a silent Accio for Goldwasser's wand and a still silent Sectumsempra at the vampire's ankle. The auror was done playing. He wanted this done, over, and away from the true arrogant one in the room.

Onward, through the doorway, along the path. The safest thing would have been to go quiet and stealthily, if these mysterious and unnerving passageways were anything to go by. But with a group so big, the action well underway, and a not inconsiderable suspicion about the nature of Bain Goldwasser, that was pointless.

So Jake sped along, at first ducking beneath the fleeing bats and then heading for the source of the distant noises, doing his best to ignore the reek of the place. As the path diverged he went straight ahead, because of course following the noise would lead them down the bloodiest path. Only natural.

Except... it stopped. Jake skidded to a halt, rubble, blocking the way, dust barely settling. Muffled voices and duelling noises coming from the other side. Once again, he cursed to himself, and stared at the impromptu barricade.

"We need to get in." He spoke quickly but softly. "Or at least see if we can... make some kind of gap to send spells through. Carefully." The structural integrity of this place was not... promising. Otherwise, he'd have blasted right the way through. Perhaps if they could stabilise it with magic, then start shifting things, but it was risky; what if they brought the whole room down anyway? "We can check the other paths too, see if there's another way."

Without knowing what was going on inside, or who was there, or what was happening, calling attention to themselves was a bad idea. However, there was an option available which would kill several birds with one spell. "Homenum Revelio."

Jake made no effort to conceal the effects of the spell on the targets, so those inside would (hopefully) understand that someone was out here, working to get in. Bain - suspected non-human - would (hopefully) feel nothing, but if so, he wouldn't be revealed by it either, which was the main benefit of the spell otherwise. It wasn't much in the way of practical help, but it was what he currently had to hand until they could get work their way inside.

Goldwasser's rebuff of his challenge was the thing Damian needed to regain his focus. A one on one duel with Bain would have spelt the younger wizard's doom. The vampire was keeping the trio on the backstep, and it was becoming abundantly clear that they needed to work together to survive.

"Press the attack! I'll take the defense!" Damian cried out to Brody. Goldwasser expected aurors. He knew that the unspeakables' would come to haunt him. But even a vampire of his age couldn't anticipate them bringing along a wizard who had no business being there.

"Aguamenti oribis!" He always verbalized his spells. Slow, but deliberate, every spell having his full focus. With his wand aloft, he formed a bubble of water around himself. Though it threatened to boil him. the green flame became so much steam.

Damian had no time to think. How could someone cast spells so quickly? He did have the time to throw himself in the way of the spell meant for Brody. Time seemed to slow in that moment, with ripples forming across the surface of his bubble. And in an explosion of water droplets that Damian almost admired in that briefest of moments, he was lifted off his feet, and thrown across the room.

"Ow.." It was Brody's moment now.

Brody pointedly ignored anything Damian was saying now. That man, had the Ministry had some sort of yearbook, then Damian would definitely have been voted ‘Person You Would Not Want To Have At Your Side During A Battle’. Even if Damian was trying to be a hero and throw himself in front of spells meant for others. Fine. The Unspeakable wanted to risk his neck more than necessary? By all means, he could continue. That meant that Brody’s chances of survival increased and there was a higher chance he could get back to his boyfriend.

Brody chose his next spell carefully, given the rather frail integrity of the lair. They didn’t need more of it coming down on them. His next spell, the Jelly - Brain Jinx, was aimed in Goldwasser’s direction, the incantation being murmured the same time that the useless Unspeakable was hurtled across the lair.

A path is not simply for walking, its purpose lies in moving forward and improving oneself.

Having never stepped foot at this location, at least, not that he could recall, Kevin made sure to not get the group out of his sight as they moved along the path. Up ahead, he saw another group of bats and lifted his wand but then chose to lower it back down as he realized that they were not attacking but fleeing from the loud noises in the distance.

He felt like they had to move faster as dark splotches of blood were seen smeared over the place and he picked up his pace before...He came to an abrupt halt. What's wrong? Oh... The sight of the rubble blocking their path and stopping them from continuing on was a major setback. He nodded his head once and moved away for a moment to see if there was another pathway that would lead further and they didn't need to get rid of the rubble. Surely someone like Goldwasser had another escape route in case he got cornered?
