Default Stone Alcove

Dank and distinctly unfriendly, this dungeon-like pass would most certainly scare any guilty party witless as they make there way to the courtrooms. However, to the average Ministry employed witch or wizard who passes by it is nothing more than a stone cobbled corridor with one unique feature.

A stone alcove.

While previously a feature easily dismissed and more often used as a hiding place for Ministry-wide 'Assassin' games, this alcove is now covered in intricate rune work. But why? Crack the code and perhaps you will find out.

......not to mention, that kind of rune work. At least, not in the Ministry. He recognized the individual runes from his Hogwarts days, but the way they were strung together, he couldn't figure an absolute meaning. He could only guess that it was probably a protection string of some kind, but protecting what? What could need that kind of protection this close to the courtrooms? The court files were all kept upstairs on level two, or so Ronan thought.

Speaking of thinking, a wild thought suddenly occurred to him. He reached out and started softly tracing the runes with his index finger. Just a hunch.......but there was probably a door here, right? With the way the blood trail trailed off and the runes just in this alcove. The runes had to be protecting or hiding a secret door.

The trail indeed tapered off.

At that point, Brody took a moment to quickly look away from the trail to the surroundings that they passed by. He kept thinking that the thing would pounce on them. Made sense, right? In a way, that fear was a good thing because it kept the Coordinator on alert.

To the alcove they went. Brody was immediately reminded of the Slytherin dungeons back at Hogwarts. The similarities here were uncanny. Minus the rune work. He stood there nervously while Ronan was busy with the runes. However, Brody was doing a bit of sleuthing of his own by checking for other trails, glowing runes and other inconsistencies. “Find anything?” the DIMC employee called quietly to Ronan?

"He's touching the runes. Why's he touching the runes? That's how you get cursed." Damian said quietly to himself while peering around the corner, keeping himself safe in case somebody exploded or something. "Perhaps one of our cryptographers should take a look. Indigo Rousseau?" The unspeakable liked to know who his department mates were. Hopefully the wizard was following with the rest of the group.

"Not yet." Hmm.

"And dropping jelly donuts in your workspace is how you get ants, doesn't stop people from doing it." Damian may have been talking to himself, but Ronan could still hear him. Auror senses. They were a curse at times. And he may not be a cursebreaker or anything, but he did know a little about how runes worked. It had been one of his best classes back in Hogwarts, after all. "Or, y'know, a cursebreaker." Would be much quicker than a cryptographer or an auror with a basic knowledge of this stuff. Did the Ministry even employ such people? If not, maybe they should start.....

He sent a message to Jake via patronus, asking just this question, the meerkat hurrying down the corridor and disappearing around the corner.

Brody heard what he thought were rumblings from Damian but remained silent. He was too busy examining the rune work. Yet again, he was transported back to his Hogwarts days - to Ancient Runes classes to be exact. It was why the runes were familiar, even if some of their names came easily to him while others eluded him.

All the carvings in one place were unlike anything Brody had seen before. He found himself imagining some witch or wizard gone loopy and carved out all of the runes. He reached out his left hand and used his index finger to brush the familiar sideways hourglass rune that was Daagaz.

“The trail ended here,’’ he remarked to the other two. “Either of you think there’s a chance that thing used these runes to somehow conceal itself?” Brody didn’t understand the situation fully and he was just spitballing a thought.

Careful what you touch, the grime in this alcove would keep a house-elf busy for hours. With as closely as this group is looking, they probably won't miss the bit of fresh blood, the same shade of crimson as the trail, glistening in an otherwise path of the wall just above eye level. Along with some dried-on mud. Or...is it mud?

Aside from the grime, you wouldn't want to contaminate the evidence with your own DNA, after all.

Remaining silent (he wanted to hear what the others thought, really) and turning back to the wall, he caught a glistening in the corner of his eye. Was that also blood? It was definitely the color of it. And it was surrounded by other.... dark-colored stuff. Did that mean....what he thought it meant? Was this like that cave Potter and Dumbledore encountered back in 1996? The one with the fake locket Horcrux? There was only one way to find out......

Ronan took a deep breath before using a silent Diffindo on his palm and placing his now bleeding hand on the stone, hissing a little at the sting. Merlin, he hoped this worked.....

Default Talk about going all out, Ronan <3
~ Mrs Steve Harrington ~ Friendly Neighbourhood Hufflepuff ~

Brody, having found nothing on his side of the alcove, gravitated towards Ronan. He was still carefully scanning the place in an attempt to find something that either the Auror or Damian had missed. Brody hadn’t come across the crimson that Ronan had but he was about to. The hiss had him spinning around and heading over in that direction.

“What… what are you doing?” His eyes darted from Ronan’s bleeding hand on the wall to the actual wall where there was another patch of fresh blood. Something clicked and Brody understood what the Auror was doing. “I think that should be enough.” Meaning that Ronan didn’t need to bleed out all over the wall.

And what was that dried bit of substance there? Dried blood? Mud? Whatever it was, would that wall be opening up to them?

Well, that was effective...

The blood of the Auror, applied to the wall, triggered something. The runes, centered at where the man's blood had been pressed into the stone, began to glow dimly. A deep rumble filled the alcove, like something was moving deep inside the wall.

Was that...a door...creeping open?

"Oh, bloody..." Quite literally. Damian was still halfway around the corner. "Should go get my sword.." But his feet and eyes were fixed. There was no getting away, no looking away.

And now the abyss was opening up to greet them, with the unspeakable finding his wand and his courage. Taking his place next to Ronan, he gave a little nod. "On your lead. No hesitation. No mercy." His heart was racing, but his hand and his eyes held steady.

But......Ronan didn't lift his hand from the wall until he was sure it had worked. He wasn't really worried about bleeding out, so sure he was that this was going to work. And once he heard the rumbling, he lifted his hand from the stone wall and performed a few quick disinfecting and healing spells. "No worries," he replied, holding up his now healed hand. Maybe not as well done as a healer, but at least it wasn't bleeding any more.

What? Pendragon wanted to use a sword against a vampire and he was the weird one?! "Actually, why don't you go inform Mr. Upstead up on Level Two that we may have found what or who has been behind the attacks on Ministry personnel? If anyone asks, tell 'em Ronan sent you." Really couldn't risk any more outbursts from the Unspeakable, not if they were dealing with who he thought they were. Hell, the vamp had sent fireballs in his direction just because!

As for the Auror? He was making his way through the now open door.

"Preposterous." Ronan wouldn't be rid of him so easily. "This monster killed my predecessor. I wouldn't be at the Ministry if it wasn't for him." The unspeakable understood why the Auror didn't want him tagging along, but this was his obsession. The black edge that framed his every waking moment. The inky shadow that smothered his dreams.

"Focus now. Into the breach we go."

Brody shrugged. He knew Ronan knew what he was doing, but it was the sight of anyone bleeding that made Brody uncomfortable. He simply nodded after scanning Ronan’s hand quickly. He didn’t allow his relief to be visible on his face that the bleeding had stopped. In a moment, his attention was on the door? opening and the rumble inside? Dear Merlin. What was in there? The thought sent a chill through him but darn him if he was going to look foolish before Ronan.

Er, what?

The Coordinator swung gaze to Damian, an eyebrow arched questioningly and a little judgmentally. He thought Damian was even more dramatic now.

“We can focus a little more if you stopped talking about swords.” And truthfully, did Damian really expect that they would hang around for him while he trotted off for a sword? Brody, holding really gripping his wand before him again, followed Ronan into the opening. Was he on edge? You bet.

Wider and wider the door creaked open. Stone frame grinding against stone floor made for a eerily jarring tooth grinding sound that rattled to the bone.

Nothing but darkness ahead, was it really wise to go down just the three of you?

Venture on...

Why, oh why, had he been saddled with someone who couldn't follow simple instructions?! And he wasn't so sure Damian understood his motives at all. People would find a way to pin the blame on him if the arrogant idiot got himself killed and if the idiot got them ALL killed....? He couldn't do that to his daughter.

"Now, how on earth would you know that?!" Unless someone had talked that shouldn't have. The official Ministry line, at least as far as he knew, was merely that Goldwasser had been part of the takeover and was now a missing and wanted man. No one outside of himself, the others that were in the tech lounge that night, and the Minister were supposed to know about the whole vampire thing, seeing as those he'd attacked since had no clue what had attacked them (not that he was entirely sure that's what had happened. Was just the most reasonable conclusion he could come to knowing what he knew). So, who had talked? He was absolutely sure that neither Matt nor Saul had said a word, knowing the need for discretion as part of their jobs as they did. He didn't know Conley and his husband as well, but surely they also knew the need for discretion. Which only left....."You really need to stop listening to that Jane. She's a big pot of trouble man...." And she would be in it if they survived this.

"Just keep your mouth shut and let me and Brody do the talking." Because Pendragon obviously couldn't handle it without making a fool of himself or getting others into trouble.
