Default The Sculpture Exhibit


What was once an abandoned room next to the arena down the corridor is now full of metal sculptures in the shapes of creatures. Labeled accordingly, most of them one could recognize as being more dark in nature, such as the hinkypunk and red cap. Others seem to be created due to sudden inspiration from the maker, such as the squirrel or swan. The door is usually unlocked, open to both student and staff. Don't panic if some of the sculptures seem more lifelike than you first thought. A twitch of a wing. Movement of a head. A chirp from a bird. Was that clabbert always hanging from there? Watch where you walk however. You may just run into a cobweb or two.

Since the opening feast, Cutty had heard much about the castle. A supposedly friendly and enormous squid that lived inside of the lake and getting to sleep in a dungeon, the latter of which had turned out to be something Cutty enjoyed greatly. It was only a matter of time before he'd gone exploring, and his expedition had landed him there. Near the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom.

Cutty could see a door nearby and he decided to approach. The only risk was not taking one, right? Or maybe, not taking one yourself, but getting someone smaller and stupider than you to take one. Fresh out of those. His skinny little hand reached out and twisted the knob and to his great delight, it opened up to a beautiful and horrific display.

Cutty felt his heart leap into his chest at once. Animals, beasts and creatures of all types flooded his eye. Some were small, but others were his size or even larger. One that Cutty swore was a manticore appeared to be crouching, readying itself for a pouncing leap. Step by step he entered further into the sculpture garden, his body reacting to the darkness and foreboding. Was he even supposed to be in there? His eye spotted something in the farthest, darkest corner which looked to him like a shrouded figure. Could it have been a beansidhe? Cutty swallowed hard and took another step closer, then froze, almost giving a little jump at what he thought was the same crouching creature from before heading him off, but it remained perfectly motionless giving Cutty the chance to exhale and laugh a mischievous little monkey laugh.

As quickly as he'd entered, he found his way out and quietly shut the door behind him. He left the Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom area with a good little scare and chock full of inspiration.

When Eliza'd found this room, she'd initially thought it was pretty neat. She liked art, so sculptures were right up her alley. Some of the ones in here were really something to see. She found herself wondering if she'd ever be good at something like sculpting with clay or metal work, but the further she walked in, the less curious and the more uneasy she became.

It was a lot darker and more...serious in here than she had been expecting, and what had seemed like a good place to pull our her sketch book was now beginning to give her the creeps. She didn't want to chicken out and run away, but she wasn't sure how much longer she would stay either. Her eyes still hadn't adjusted to the room and its inhabitants, so she drew her wand for light.

Having the afternoon off from classes, Claudette decided to take the opportunity to explore the castle a little bit. There was still a lot for her to get accustomed to and it would probably be helpful for her to know her way around at least generally so she wasn't late for classes and that sort of thing. And the moving staircases were more troubling than anything to help her find her way around.

She soon found herself on the first floor (thanks in part to those said staircases again) and the sixth year began slowly walking through the corridor, green eyes scanning the area for anything of interest and to look for memorable markings to help her find her way back if she needed it. The DADA classroom was here, was it not? And at least one other.. it would be best if she knew where she was going. Rounding the corner, Claudette came across a room with the door ajar. Curiosity getting the better of her, she pushed the door open a bit more and crept in. It seemed to be a sculpture exhibit of sort, which was admittedly pretty cool but rather creepy at the same time. It was sort of dark inside, both in the light of the room and the nature of many of the metal creatures, she noticed as her green eyes fell on each of the sculptures.

Another person was in the room as well, one whom she recognized to be Eliza and who appeared to be deeply concentrating on something else. Sketching, by the looks of it. Was she so engaged that she didn't notice her entrance? Claudette crept up behind her very quietly, then shouted, "Boo!" Then she took a few steps backwards before the girl could whirl around or scream or whatever, allowing a few giggles to escape her lips.

Then she took a few steps backwards before the girl could whirl around or scream or whatever, allowing a few giggles to escape her lips.
Just as she was about to allow herself to high tail it out of the unsettling room, there was a loud voice shouting into the depths of the place. Eliza nearly jumped out of her skin, which would have been a horrifyingly disgusting sight she was sure, and accidentally sent sparks shooting from her clutched wand, that raced across the room and ricocheted off of several sculptures. The startled girl yelped and flung herself to the floor in a tight position as she muttered the word, "Protego!" as she fell. An orb of protection covered her, keeping her safe from the bouncing lightning bolts she'd sent out.

Once the unintended spell ping-ponged itself out on the art in the room, Eliza lifted her head and peeked around at what she now knew must have been a female voice. Her eyes found Claudette and she let out a sheepish grin, followed by a narrowing of the eyes. "You gave me quite a fright, Claudette!" she said accusingly. She stood and brushed herself off, and immediately felt her cheeks grow hot from her outburst. "I-I'm sorry. That was rude. I was just still a little tense," she said apologetically. Great, can I EVER have a decent interaction with this girl? She's Ethan's cousin for crying out loud Eliza, get it together! She took in a few even breaths to slow her heart rate back to normal and said, "It was a little funny." She smirked and arched an eyebrow at the blonde. Surely she thought Eliza was just...a trip at this point. She wanted to tell her that she wasn't usually like this, but then she considered it, and thought maybe she really was. "I don't mean to be so...so jumpy. Sorry," she apologized again, looking at the girl with confused eyes. Is this why I don't have many friends? she wondered. Does everyone think I'm just a big scaredy cat? She wasn't sure, and she didn't like being unsure. Well, I'm NOT just afraid of things! Last year I cast a spell at a goblin for crying out loud! Let THAT be known, eh? Her mind was a maze of thought now and there wasn't much she could do about it. In fact, she'd almost forgotten Claudette was standing there, probably watching her.

With the door slightly ajar, quiet music could be heard to passerby's, as well as a faint sizzling sound every now and then. Which could've been anything really. Really. This was defense against the dark arts after all. Softly humming along to the tune, Medea sat in the far corner of the exhibit, bent over a small table with two candles hovering nearby for extra light, and working on a new sculpture creation. Tiny. Unrecognizable. But had been holding her interest for the past hour or so as Chu Chu found a place to sleep somewhere in the room.

Somewhere......

After the dismal display that had been the opening feast, Airey found himself feeling even more apprehensive about things and did not understand why he was being so insistent on a) delivering this in the first place and b) delivering this to her in person. Truth was, there was a lot the astronomy professor was feeling bad for thanks to the past term. He had made peace with the whole ice cream bit - for the most part thanks to Miss Wisteria and Miss Wheatborn specifically - but Medea...that was a whole other galaxy.

Not only had he made the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor feel like she was not up to standards to teach the subject thanks to the lack of a patronus, he had squished one of her pets. Her pet spider to be precise, and Airey understood what it was like to lose a pet.

Done with the dramatics in his head, Airey explored the first floor classroom until he came upon the Sculpture Exhibit. Ha. How ironic. Poetic? Both? Peeking in he spotted her and cleared his throat to announce his arrival with both hands held behind his back to hide the small box with a lopsided bow on top.

Her humming stopped short as she looked up to...Airey. Eyebrows raising, she blew away the little smoke that was coming from the creation type thing, before she smiled warmly. "Hey, Airey. Something up?"

...And she was going to ignore all those sudden thoughts and feelings until she knew what was up.

Saying the ceiling or the sky was not the appropriate answer for that question, right? Right. He didn't really need to ask that out loud to know the answer. "Looking for you, actually," he said without thinking about the words coming out of his mouth. At least he didn't say something like 'I like your hair' again.

And then he saw that she was working on something. "I can....um...come back at another time, if you are too busy, doing whatever it is you are doing..." he said as he fidgeted with his tie a little. All those parts reminded him of why he was here in the first place though. Parts. Broken parts. Broken spider parts?

That was all that was needed to be said before those thoughts and feelings burst through the flimsy wall paper that was set up in the first place. Oh, dear Merlin. Did this have to do with what Callie said? Oh gosh, she couldn't even properly remember what her dear friend had mentioned at the feast. It'd been thought and re-thought in her mind so many times...who knows how twisted the words had become.

"Really...?" she muttered, glancing down to her not even half finished worked. As tempting as it was to continue, her curiosity was far too great to compete with. "No, no. I've got plenty of time. Just...hobby stuff."

Leaving her project be, she turned towards the astronomy professor in her seat and grinned. Nervously. Yeeeees?

Thankfully the astronomer was distracted by his own panicky thoughts so that he did not notice the awkwardness that was oozing from Medea right now. He was drowning in his own as it was. Clearing his throat once again before he spoke - and he could really use some water right now, by the way - he stood there for a few moments looking like a fish out of water. Just opening and closing his mouth.

"Really," he finally managed to say, his throat feeling like he had just swallowed a dusty tapestry. But he wasn't quite ready to dive into the deep end just yet. Not when he noticed that inanimate objects as pets was not the only thing they had in common. "I didn't know you built things as a hobby too," he said as his curiosity was peak. "Does this mean that all your metal creatures have been....your creations? Minus Sonya that is."

And he wasn't sure which answer he would rather hear, by the way. Knowing that he had smashed a hand crafted spider was just going to make the knots in his stomach tighten even more.

And then she was looking at him like that and he followed his instincts without even thinking and took a small step back. Glancing up at Medea again, he somewhat reluctantly moved his hands out from behind his back to reveal his poorly wrapped gift. Muggle tape and him never got a long well.

Claudette had stepped back, giggling a bit, waiting for Eliza's reaction. It was awfully spooky down here and she figured it a laugh to just startle the seemingly preoccupied girl.. but she was not at all prepared for what was to come next. Her eyes widened as sparks sprung out of the other girl's wand, ricocheting around the room, and the blonde threw a protective arm over her head as she crouched down. Her eyes darting around the room, the fell on Eliza as she cast a shield and Claudette's hand found her wand, doing the same to keep the sparks from burning off her hair.

The sparks soon slowed and fizzled out, leaving Claudette still staring wide-eyed and open-mouthed at Eliza. She slowly straightened up to her full height looking stunned back at the other girl, not saying anything and just letting the girl speak. Finally, after a few minutes and the 16 year old was again able to form words, she began. "Well.. that was.. interesting.." She started chuckling a little, then shook her head. "No.. that actually was pretty funny." Wow.. Eliza was pretty excitable, she'd have to file that away in her memory bank. "I wasn't really expecting all that, to be honest.. so, um, what is this place anyway?" She looked around again at all the little metal creatures.

Too? Did he say too? She could've sworn he said too. Though despite how long they'd known one another and how many times she broke into his office, Medea could not think of what that 'too' would apply to off the tip of her brain. Then again, complete sentences weren't happening either.

"Yea, erm..." Glancing momentarily to the metal creations beside the astronomy professor, she shrugged up her shoulders and chuckling softly. "Yea. Might haff a little too much time on...my hands...oh..."

Oh my. What was that for? Eyebrows raising in surprise, she stared at Airey questionably, at the red package, back to Airey, and finally after a few seconds of blank thoughts, slowly reached out to take the wonderfully wrapped gift. "Vot is this for?" It wasn't Christmas yet! She was sure of that!

"Yea, erm..." Glancing momentarily to the metal creations beside the astronomy professor, she shrugged up her shoulders and chuckling softly. "Yea. Might haff a little too much time on...my hands...oh..."

Oh my. What was that for? Eyebrows raising in surprise, she stared at Airey questionably, at the red package, back to Airey, and finally after a few seconds of blank thoughts, slowly reached out to take the wonderfully wrapped gift. "Vot is this for?" It wasn't Christmas yet! She was sure of that!
Too much time on her hands? Was that really such a bad thing to have a lot of spare time to do something that you love? Or, well, he assumed that it was something that she loved to do. Building these metal creatures. It looks like a rather complicated process and, while the two of them had never really discussed their education background, he could only assume that this meant she was also very gifted in Metal Charming. There was also a subtle 'too' at the end of that thought. Charms was something he excelled in, including the alloy equivalent.

"Oh um...well...two reasons really," he said as his boyish fidgeting returned. "First...this is sort of my apology for crushing your spider last term." Ironically with a bowl of ice cream. "I...guess you made that spider then, yeah?" Actually, she really didn't need to answer that. Really. "But...also...um....happybirthday," he finished, mumbling, as he handed over the box. He didn't realize it until he was waiting for her to open it, but the contents of the box was quite the metaphor for what was going on inside his stomach right now. Only there wasn't just one. More like there were thousands of them fluttering around.

Medea hesitantly smiled at the mention of spider. There was no doubt she was noooooot going to mention that some parts she was working with at the moment had come from that creature's remains. The window of opportunity to do so anyhow was so small and barely noticeable, she did nothing but continue to smile. And then frown.

Oh no. "Oh you didn't." A birthday gift for her? Really? Who...who told him anyways?? Eyeing the wrapped gift, she raised an eyebrow at Airey lightheartedly as she veeery carefully tore one piece of the tape off. The thought of this being a prank had suddenly crossed her mind. If that was to start up again, would this have been a good enough time as ever to do so?

Yet it became clear it was not a prank after opening the box. Her eyes widened and mouth partially dropped as she gingerly took out the delicate creation from it's container. "Oh vow...Airey..." Despite the dim lighting in the room and it's small stature, she could see just how much beautiful detail the artist had put into it. Placing it upon the makeshift workshop table, she stood up and stared at the butterfly with wonder for a moment longer, hands clasped in front of her, before she glanced towards the very generous Astronomy professor.

"How...Vhere did you find this?"

"How...Vhere did you find this?"
Yes. Good. Don't mention the spider bits. Everyone knew that that would just make the man squirm and potentially bolt towards the nearest exit with some awkward flailing of the arms and a hurried 'farewell, nice running into you today' sort of expression.

"Um...I did?" he said in a slightly questioning tone. See? There was a box. Right there. With a ribbon and everything. He hadn't placed any Disillusionment Charms on it or anything either. Although that WOULD have been a good idea. Could have done this a la muggle magician sort of style. His nerves eased up just a little when he saw how she was eyeing the packaging. Probably was assuming it was a prank. ANOTHER awesome idea. "Watch out, it bites," he teased.

He was definitely holding his breath when she pulled the butterfly out of the box though. Definitely and if she took much longer with things he was going to turn blue in the face - and he already looked like a monkey, or a hamster, with puffed out cheeks as it was. Sucking his cheeks back in when she spoke, he rested both hands on the table and was back to not really making eye contact with Medea.

"A muggle flea market," he nodded. "Did you know that there are next to no fleas at those? Muggles really need to sort out their wording." Seriously. First fast food not moving and now a flea market with no fleas running the show. What a let down. This is why he enjoyed science so much. Everything was properly labeled. "She was all rusty and bent up when I found her. The muggle selling her practically gave her away to me, but I managed to get her all cleaned up." Airey was especially proficient with Cleaning Spells after all. Not to mention good ol' elbow grease of muggle cleaning methods. "She should be in perfect working condition once the proper spells are put in place."

Which was Medea's cue to work her magic. Literally.

Honestly, she was quite thankful he mentioned there were no fleas at a...muggle flea market. "I...did not..." she muttered, unable to keep her attention away from the butterfly for long. Oh gosh, and he cleaned it up, as he said? For her? The latter part was left unsaid, but he did give it to her as a gift.

It took her juuuuust a moment to register what he said... "OH!" Hands flailing in front of her as she reached for her wand left upon the table. Of course. It should be animated right away. The proper spells, as so mentioned, didn't take long to be put into place. Soon enough, she stepped away from the table, watching the butterfly intently with anxious eyes. A wing twitched. And then the other. Until they twitched in unison and soon enough, started to flutter with ease like butterfly wings did.

Medea couldn't help the squeak of delight that escaped her once the little sculpture lifted itself off the table. Nor did she think twice about suddenly moving to hug Airey with an excited hop in her step... or the kiss upon his cheek. "Thank yooouuuu, oh gosh. She's beautiful. Thank you. She's perfect!"

There was actually a lot of interesting things at this flea market and Airey had been kicking himself over some of the vintage astronomical equipment he had found. And maps. There had been plenty of old maps and other things, but he hadn't converted his galleons into muggle money to have been able to afford it all. He had just been planning on a simple trip to the dry cleaner's after all.

Can't put a price on happiness, though, and seeing his colleague's reaction was priceless. and for everything else there is that muggle plastic card.

He held his breath as Medea performed the spells. Wouldn't it just be his luck that these alloys were not the sort that could be charmed or some other stroke of bad luck. Thankfully this was not the case and soon the metal butterfly was, er, fluttering - for lack of a better term.

What came next was not expected. Well, the hug was at least. He had read about hugs and friendship after all. He had even hugged Calista in Diagon Alley over the summer. You know. Being a good friend and all. It required hugs according to the text. Step 5 in the 10 step program if it recalled correctly. The kiss....that was different and it was her lips - the same ones he had kissed last term - on his cheek that caused his body to freeze up as if hit by a Full Body-Bind Curse.

THAT...wasn't a part of the 10 steps....

Hugging her back somewhat timidly - WAS HE SUPPOSED TO KISS HER CHEEK NOW TOO?! - he smiled. Not that she could see that since his chin was resting on her shoulder and he was sort of afraid to turn her head because...well...the mechanics behind things were that he would be putting himself in THAT position again. He wanted to though, but he also didn't want to be more confused about.....them.

They probably needed to talk about all that.

After what seemed like an eternity of him just holding her in his arms and getting lost in his on confused thoughts, the astronomer finally spoke. "I'm glad you like her."

Oh, she got hugs back! Sort of. No, yes, it was a hug back, which made her smile more, and possibly...put a little more effort into her own hugging. Quite a long hug too. Went way past the three second rule. Or was it five seconds. Oh who was she to argue about hugs and rules. Hugs didn't even HAVE rules!

Though really, should one of them part? Medea nodded as much as she could with their position after Airey spoke but, that...was that. Parting. She should part. Because...that's what people did. Even though, it was very nice to be there. With his arms around her........ Few more seconds maybe...

________WOOOOOOSH!

A small, black shadow like figure zoomed past their heads, possibly even having grazed their hair. Flinching out of instinct, Medea parted from the astronomy professor just enough to glance behind. "Oh!.........OH! Chu Chu! No!" No no! FLAIL! The precious bat had the precious butterfly! In it's mouth. Oh gosh, adorable......NO! BAD! Ehhhh!

It was a good thing that those thoughts about hugs were not vocalized. Would have caused more awkward and most likely some planking to happen.

Medea wasn't out of his arms for long as something can swooping in and grazing the astronomer's hair - even pulling out a few strands with its itty bitty claws. Shrieking like a little girl, Airey clung to the brunette for dear life - arms around her waist as he hid behind her like she was a shield. He had to squat somewhat due to his height, but he stood up just enough to take a peek over her shoulder. Chu chu? "What is a ---"

*SMACK*


Medea's flailing hand...er...elbow...er...some part of her flailing arm collided with him square in the nose. Eyes crossing for a moment, his eyes began to tear up, blurring his vision, from the impact and he fell back on his bum. "I'm alright," he mumbled while looking like a little boy sitting crossed legged on the ground in daddy's suit.

Not even aware of the SMACK she gave Airey, she hurried forward to try and catch the...hungry bat. No! Don't gnaw on the metal butterfly! Or...fly away. "CHU CHU! Gosh...sit..." Muttering in her native tongue, she snatched the bat, before prying the work of art away from him. For the love of Merlin, the little thing had a big grip.

AHA! Success!

Holding to the two creatures apart at half arm's length, she turned to beam in Airey's direction, but...nope. What in Merlin's beard happened to him? "Oh my, are you alright?" Oh he was all teary eyed! Did he not like bats too?

Contemplating the idea of planking on his back - you know, because he totally meant to fall over and all that - the Astronomy professor rocked back and forth in Indian sitting position for a moment. Because that was the less awkward thing to do. Especially after Medea muttered things that he couldn't understand.

Although he was now pretty sure he had, through deductive reasoning, figured out what a Chu Chu was.

"I'm fine," he repeating, rubbing his nose and blinking a bit but not yet standing. "So...Chu Chu is your bat then?" Cue a perplexed look towards the bat in her hand. It actually was....sort of cute. "At least....it is able to defend itself. You know...so your...............felines don't devour it."

Vivid imagery. He had it now.

Shudder.

"Is the butterfly okay? I still have all the cleaning materials in my office...if there are any scratches or anything."

Was he rambling? He felt like he was. Um. Yeah. Just going to stay here on the ground. Not awkward at all.

Was he sure he was fine?

With the mention of the bat, she kinda turned so she could almost hide the creature behind her back if needed. Though there wasn't any manly!screaming like there was with her cats. SPEAKING...of her cats... "Oh, no." she shook her head, letting the bat go (who in turn perched itself in a dark corner), but kept a firm grip on the butterfly piece. "No, I left feline pets vith a neighbor back at home. Their relationship does indeed go straight past enemies and right to dinner........unfortunately..."

A year without her cats. Did anyone even realize how EMPTY her office felt now?!

"But um...yea. That's Chu Chu. My new bat." Momentarily glancing towards that dark corner and seeing his beedy little eyes glint orange every now and then from the candle light, she smiled a little before turning her attention to the butterfly. It SEEMED fine to her. Though who could even tell in such dim lighting? Not that she really cared if her own pieces were scratched, but this was different!

"I'll need to look at it in better light but, it should be fine." Her smile grew, just by looking at the gift. Gosh, brought a whole new outlook on metal art! And the wonderful gift giver........was still on the ground. "Are you SURE you're alright, Airey? I...I can take him avay if he's bothering you..."

"No, I left feline pets vith a neighbor back at home. Their relationship does indeed go straight past enemies and right to dinner........unfortunately..."

A year without her cats. Did anyone even realize how EMPTY her office felt now?!

"But um...yea. That's Chu Chu. My new bat." Momentarily glancing towards that dark corner and seeing his beedy little eyes glint orange every now and then from the candle light, she smiled a little before turning her attention to the butterfly. It SEEMED fine to her. Though who could even tell in such dim lighting? Not that she really cared if her own pieces were scratched, but this was different!

"I'll need to look at it in better light but, it should be fine." Her smile grew, just by looking at the gift. Gosh, brought a whole new outlook on metal art! And the wonderful gift giver........was still on the ground. "Are you SURE you're alright, Airey? I...I can take him avay if he's bothering you..."
Woah. Wait. WHAT?!

As much as this news pleased him - less felines in the castle and all that - it was hard to imagine Medea without the four legged beasts in her office. From what he had been able to observe in terror, they were like an extension of herself. Sort of like how Pebbles was of him. Wow. Depressing thought right there. At least her "loss" was by choice.

"You must really like Chu Chu then. To be willing to part with your cats and all like that," he said with a boyish flush to his cheeks. Which made him a little curious as to just how she happened upon the bat. Probably one of the monsters had caught the thing and brought it to her as a prize. Felines were barbaric and evil like that. Airey was still convinced that the bringing of dead, or at least partly dead, critters to their owners was a warning. One that said 'mess with me and you're next.'

"No. Really," he said, rubbing his eyes to remove some of the straggling tears there. "You got me good in the nose, that's all." Maybe he should get off the ground now? Yes. This seemed like a good idea. "Actually...he is sort of....." Dare he say it? "..............cute."

Still on the ground, by the way. But now his legs were straight out in front of him instead of crossed. You know, just casually stretching.

"Yes vell...I try not to think about it often." Even though Chu Chu was a fantastic little creature, the loneliness from the lack of her cats wasn't something she could rid of over night. Nor would she have liked that to happen. Who would want to forget about their pets!?

But...What? She? Got him in the nose? How in Merlin's beard.....

"OH!" Eyes widened slightly in horror as she covered her mouth from alarm, momentarily stiff as a board as realization dawned on her. With a click of her tongue, Medea sighed and flopped to her knees next to him, guilty as all get out. "I'm sorry. I just...that happens...around me. I don't know vhy.......I'm sorry." His nose didn't look too bad in her opinion though, even in the dim lighting. It looked like an Airey nose to her, though that didn't stop her from being anxious. Here he was, giving her an amazing gift, and she whacked him in the nose. "Are you sure you're okay?"

AND DID HE INDEED JUST SAY THOSE WORDS? "Oh my...Airey Flamsteed finding one of my pets cute." A smile tugged at her lips as she poked his shoulder. "I might faint of shock."
