Default Mirror


Not far from the balcony, a large gilded mirror can be found on the fourth-floor corridor. Once upon a time, the mirror hid a secret passageway that would take anyone to Hogsmeade undetected at any time. Unfortunately, there was a cave in mid-way that made the passage end up not leading anywhere. Nevertheless, if you're in a pickle and can get the mirror off the wall and back again, you would at least have a neat hiding place.

Most people just try using the mirror to check on their appearance throughout the day. Oddly enough, however, the mirror doesn't show ones reflection. Always being shown in the mirror is a scene of handsome chandeliers, elegant landscape oil paintings, and golden draperies, which is not at all what the wall of the corridor behind you looks like. This is, of course, one of Hogwarts' many mysteries. The location of the room that the mirror is showing is unknown to everyone today. But every now and then, a dark figure can be spotted in the background before disappearing again.

Helloooooo January!

Perhaps the quietest and saddest time of year for some. It was cold outside, the daylight hours were much fewer and Christmas was over and the kids were back from school after the holidays. Aurora however was not in a particularly bad mood, in fact she could be found skipping her way along the fourth floor corridor with no particular direction with her wandering other than to find someone to talk to or something to do.

She may have been leaving a slight trail of crumbs from the chocolate chip cookie she was munching on as she made her way although with the state that the castle was being left in these days, it was unlikely that the happy little Elves would care much about the mess.

It was on her expedition through the castle that she came across a mirror she hadn’t paid much attention to before. She wouldn’t have paid much attention to it that day either if it wasn’t for the movement she caught within its confines out the corner of her eye. Also the fact that it wasn’t really a mirror at all seeing as it’s reflection was one of somewhere that clearly wasn’t Hogwarts judging by the fancy chandeliers and paintings of things that weren’t past Professors.

How.. odd.

To be honest, Brandon did not look in mirrors except for once in the morning and once at night to check how he looked. It was a family thing. His sister had a pretty bad phobia, so he had grown up with mirrors mostly being kept out of the house. He thought it was weird now, seeing so many sinks with mirrors on them. Mirrors as a decoration. Mirrors being carried around or used to communicate. It made sense, he supposed, to know what you looked like. But he was unused to it. He'd noticed this particular mirror, of course. He had never actually stopped to look into it before today.

He slowed his path through the hallway as he noticed his friend Aurora paused outside of it. He tapped her shoulder. "Hi Aurora, what's-" He paused, then frowned and sucked in a breath. He could have sworn he saw movement... was there somebody trapped in there?

Contrary to the pair of Mitsuki's acquittances, the Ravenclaw often frequented the mirror. Specifically she would follow the groves in the stone flooring until her feet led her to the centermost stone in front of the mirror. Situated on the floor, she often spent an hour or two (often missing a lesson) with her watercolors and charcoals while she painted and her brush wooshed and danced across her canvas. It reminded her very much of her first encounter with Milo while they mutually floated about Janus Gallowglass. Perhaps such nostalgia was what had driven Mitsuki to increase the number of times her feet tiptoed about the fourth floor corridor...more likely was the desire to use the rich black ink she had brewed from mushroom tops.

Mostly unbothered both Brandon Fox's and Aurora's presence and their want to observe the ornateness before them, the sixth year did wish that they both could take a step to either side so that she could sit in the same spot as she always did while here.

So, rather than properly interrupt the non-conversation going on, Mitsuki simply cleared her throat as she stood behind them and casually slipped her left foot along the stone floor to 'claim' her block. "The brush strokes of opportunity, provisional black ink."

Yeahhh, Mr White! Yeah science!

With head bowed and arms crossed, Rowan was showing to the world that she did not want to be bothered at this point in time.

She was on her way to the library study tables where it would be quiet and she could put her head down and get some work done without all the loud chatter and distractions of the common room.

She wasn't sure if she had taken a wrong turn along the way, but her footsteps slowed as she approached a small group of students and a large mirror she had never seen before. Her body language relaxed, letting the world back in as she apprached the three.

Aurora she knew.. sort of. The other two she had seen around school but had never spoken to. The older Ravenclaw was saying something cryptic.. eerie even. A micro-expression of puzzlement, before her eyes settled on the mirror. She was, of course, expecting to see her reflection gazing back at her.. but.. no? What was that? An exquisitely grand room with chandeliers and paintings. She looked behind her and all she saw was the stone wall of the corridor.

She drifted closer to the group, her eyes on the mirror, her head tilting to the side to study what she was seeing. “What is this?” She asked no one in particular in a hushed tone, focus on studies evaporated.Where is this?” She reached out a hand as if to touch the mirror, but innate cautiousness held her back from making contact and her hand dropped to her side.

Had she not been slightly distracted by gazing at the fancy chandelier in the mirror and wondering whether her room at home was big enough to have one of those in it (the answer was definitely not), Aurora might’ve heard Brandon approaching. But as it happened and because Brandon seemed to have a habit of just appearing out of nowhere, the Ravenclaw jumped just the tiniest fraction before wrapping her arms around her friend. “Hi Brandy!” She grinned, reaching into her pocket to offer him the other cookie she had nabbed from the kitchens earlier that day. “What’s what?” she asked quizzically.

Before they could delve deep into conversation, the familiar yet not altogether familiar voice of the older Ravenclaw came from behind them and the third year swiveled on the spot to see Mitsuki. Truth be told she had absolutely NO idea what she was going on about and that was evident by the clueless smile that was plastered on her blank face. Mitsuki was odd but her boyfriend was really nice and called her Princess and therefore clearly they were friends even if the feeling wasn’t mutual. “It’s a mirror, not a painting. But it’s not Hogwarts, at least I don’t think it is. Not any part of Hogwarts I’ve ever been” she giggled, deducing that perhaps she was talking about the weird reflection and thinking that it was painted on.

And then came the older Slytherin that she and Solly had met in Diagon Alley. The one who got pecked by an owl probably because she was being as curious as she was now by reaching out to the mirror. Not that it wasn’t something that Aurora would do herself. Ever heard of the expression ‘curiosity killed the cat’? “No idea. It looks really fancy though, like a ballroom.” she replied to Rowan’s enquiry.

Brandon was a little freaked out. He didn't like that things moved in the mirror. He didn't like that the mirror didn't reflect. HeDidn'tLikeItAtAll. What if someone was trapped in there? He didn't respond to Aurora's question or her hug, barely registering them. He didn't even take the cookie. Instead, he studied the mirror as a flood of unwanted memories seeped back into his mind.

He practically jumped out of his skin when Mitsuki approached them, his heart and breathing going berserk. He had been so focused on watching for movement in the mirror, and he was tense, and- and- and- she'd startled him. "H-hi, Mitsuki," he said, feeling faint, not commenting on the fact that his tutor was making little sense. Honestly... he wasn't really... in a conversational mood... "What's provisional bl-" He froze. Was Rowan going to touch the creepy evil mirror? Oh god. Please do NOT touch that. Please.

"You shouldn't touch that," Brandon said to the arriving older Slytherin, clearly feeling anxious about it. "You might get trapped in it. For months. And slowly go crazy and lose your sense of self and..." He started rambling about all the bad things that happened if you got trapped in a mirror. "...and you might never get back, and if you did you'd be messed up, and act all different, and- and- touching mirrors is just bad." He'd convinced himself that this mirror was one of the person-trapping ones and that didn't make him think the most logically. "I think we should stay away from it," he muttered, glaring at the mirror like it had personally committed crimes.

Most unfortunate. If she was meant to paint here today then the elements were working against her as the crowd before the mirror continued. The Ravenclaw's head titled to the side, perplexed by the sudden interest in a mirror that had resided here within the castle for decades now - at least, to her recollection, since her mother had been here. "This is the 4th floor," Mitsuki replied easily to the newest arrival who seemed to have lost their way - or else why ask such a question? Though it seemed the answers to the quarry were varied and the sixth year found herself feeling just the tiniest tingle of annoyance though it was completely misplaced. She was one to read the signs and accept them for what it was...therefore fate was not dictating that she come here to capture shapes with her brush but for another purpose entirely. One yet to be discovered.

Perhaps it was to education Brandon Fox about mirrors, his behavior being quiet sullen and not the sort of perspective she had come to expect from the younger Hufflepuff. "I have touched nearly every surface in Janus Gallowglass and this one numerous times to no such end," she spoke evenly while slipping a few things back into her back and stepping closer to the that which they were all mesmerized by currently. "The mirror represents truth because they merely reflected what is shown. They are hung above idols and sacred places to ward off malevolent spirits as well. Reflecting and encasing the visible light. It is obvious, is it not?" she spoke nonchalantly while reaching forward with her brush to give the glass a little tap.

Aurora was one hundred percent on the ball (no pun) - it did look like a ballroom. Rowan leaned forward to peer into the mirror. Beautiful indeed, but there was something about the vision which made the hairs stand up on the back of her neck.

That creepy feeling was heightened with the words of the younger Hufflepuff. Rowan took a step back and looked at the boy, his voice echoing anxious around the hard, cold corridor. What a vivid imagination. “What nightmare fuel have you been reading?” She asked him quizzically. “If you've just made that up, you should thinking about writing a horror story.”

And thank you, Miss Obvious, for telling her helpfully that she was on the fourth floor. Her lips quirked ever so slightly out of amusement, thinking that the girl was joking, but her body language said otherwise and the hint of mirth vanished. The way she spoke to Brandon.. the precise enunciation was nothing like Rowan had ever heard before. It made her appear wise beyond her years. This mirror wasn't reflecting anything though – it was, instead, projecting . She kept quiet and watched the girl tap the glass with her brush. Satisfied that it was safe, she reached out her finger and touched the surface, looking back a Brandon. “It's fine.” She said breezily and offered him a gentle smile. Those nerves needed calming, poor kid.

“Perhaps one of the professors merely charmed the mirror to give this corridor a little more interest.” She spoke to the three, convincing herself too that there was nothing to be concerned about.

Aurora couldn’t help the little pout at Brandon not acknowledging her hugs or the offer of a cookie. Being ignored, whether it was unintentional or not, was that absolute worst and as Brandon was clearly not interested in her delicious snacks she instead offered it to the redhead. “There wouldn’t be anything dangerous at Hogwarts or else the Professors would get rid of it.” Right? She glanced over at the two older students for reassurance.

Rowan wasn’t the only one bewildered by the way Mitsuki spoke so eloquently and quite frankly lost her usually within the first sentence. She agreed that it made the elder Ravenclaw sound like a scholar, someone who always knew what was up and what was down and therefore was someone to be trusted. So when she tapped the glass with her paintbrush and Rowan followed suit with her hand, the third year did too.

She knocked on the mirror twice with her closed knuckle just in time to spot that weird shadow darting its way across the corner. “Hellooooo? Is there anyone in there?” she giggled, evidently not expecting a response.

Brandon shook his head insistently. "I'm not making it up and it's not a story. It really happened at this school to people I know." It did, and nobody could tell him otherwise. His sister had been trapped in a mirror, so he knew it could happen. Plus, this mirror was obviously sketchy!! and creepy!! It didn't even show a reflection in it!! He couldn't BELIEVE they were all touching it after the war and the mirror-prison-traps (it didn't occur to him that they wouldn't know about those). He reached out for Aurora's hand, feeling a big wave of anxiety. "Why are you- why would you-" His hand brushed against the mirror. Nothing seemed to happen to him at all. Huh.

He let go of his friend's hand, anxiety dissipating. "Sorry. I was just a little tense, I guess... I must have seemed pretty stupid. My family's got a big history with mirrors." He smiled. "Nothing really bad, though." Just stuff from the war. And frankly, that stuff was all in the past. It happened to other people, not him. "Can I have some cookies, please Aurora?"

follow me; everything is all right.

As the mirror is touched, its surface begins to ripple as if one had dropped a stone into a pond. A shadow appears, small at first but gradually growing and swirling to the place where the student’s hand touched. The shadow’s appearance is followed by loud noise. WHOOSH!

Suddenly a blinding flash erupts from the mirror, engulfing the area in bright light.

Mitsuki would have clarified that the mirror predated any current Hogwarts professor and therefore none of them could have charmed it and she also could have corrected her younger housemate that historically such sentiments have been proven time and time again to be untrue, but she lacked the opportunity due to a blinding white light and almost seemed to wipe her thoughts clean. Not in a Memory Charm kind of way but specifically that it was so bright that it was distracting, like a perfect red maple leaf swirling on the breeze, so her entire train of thought was derailed.

Her eyes adjusted somewhat, or perhaps the light had faded, and Mitsuki rubbed any residual agitation from her eyes before jumping backwards away from the mirror and retracting her hand to her stomach as though it had just been touching hot coals. Giggling, she shuffled her feet until she was out of direct view of the mirror and smiled wide at everyone present. She felt a very real, very strong, hankering to go find Mercer but there was something else pressing upon her instincts. "I'm going to go now but before I do ... would anyone wish to participate in a group hug?" she inquired, her tone affectionately emboldened, while holding her arms out to either side to accentuate the invitation.

It was only a second after Rowan's connection with the mirror and her reassurance to Brandon when the surface began to ripple. Wide eyes flitted to the shadow growing and growing. Why did she have to be such a stubborn cynic?

A blinding light. She stumbled backwards as her reflexes set it and fell back onto her behind. "Owie.." She started to laugh and pulled herself to her feet, a hand fidgeting with her hair.

Looking at Mitsuki, she squealed with delight at the prospect of a group hug and joined her, arms spread wide. “Come on you two!” She beckoned Aurora and Brandon over with one of those outstretched arms.

Brandon was such a worry wart. The blonde offered him a reassuring smile before the mirror did its rippling thing and her attention was immediately drawn back to its shiny surface and the sudden white blinding light that almost knocked her off her feet.

She shuddered off the experience, dusting off her skirt and wrinkling her nose at the dirt that had collected in its pleats. Disgusting. As was the state this dreary old castle was in. The House Elves were clearly slacking and needed to be taken down a notch or two. Perhaps she’d have to go inform the Headmaster of the terrible commitment, or lack thereof, from the creatures. Brandon had asked for a cookie and Aurora snorted at the question. “Get your own.” she replied coldly.

Ugh.

The idea of being constrained into a hug was not appealing in the slightest. As soon as Rowan and Mitsuki offered their arms up, the Ravenclaw shirked away. “No thank you” she sneered, turning on her heels to strut down the hallway and faaaar away from any form of physical affection that was being offered.

The mirror ripple and blinding flash scared Brandon more than he'd admit, but he appeared to be unharmed. He rubbed his eyes, then smirked- he had no clue what that was, and didn't care. Ignoring it, he turned back to asking Aurora for her cookies- only to find out that she was being TOTALLY rude and selfish. "Why would I get one for myself when you've got some already? C'mon Aurora, chill out." He snatched and ate a cookie the second she looked away, feeling annoyed that she hadn't shared when he'd asked nicely. Who did she think she was? Brandon didn't feel bad at all, because there were many cookies left. He probably wouldn't have felt bad even if it was the last one, honestly.

Feeling mildly irritated, he sidestepped the group hugs. "Um, nah. Not really a hugger, I'm with Rora on this one." He laughed, slightly cruelly. Mitsuki and Rowan were soooo weird. Only losers participated in group hugs. "See you later. Maybe." He laughed and walked in the opposite direction.

Making her way out the doors from the library and down the corridor to where the mirror in question was perched upon the wall, Roulan inspected it first from a distance. It didn't seem to be doing anything out of the ordinary, outside of it's usual not offering a genuine reflection which negated it's purpose as a mirror. If it WERE a snapshot of a meeting place, it would certainly make sense why it seemed more picture-like than something that anyone could use to check their reflection. But if it were a meeting place... how would one get into it?

Rue took a few steps forward, still careful not to get too close, and kept her hands clasped behind her back as she looked at it. Was that perhaps.. figures she was seeing in the room? She turned her head to see if anyone else had followed out, in order to inquire if they also saw anything new. Perhaps one of the girls had also heard further information from Burke on why the mirror had flashed. Did they need to do something in particular?

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Naturally it had been rather difficult to miss an entire group of students and professors trooping their way out of the library. Dhruv had dilly-dallied a bit as they poured over the DADA book while simultaneously making up their mind about whether to follow the group. In the end, they had hastily replaced the book on the shelf then hastened off, trailing behind the others. You see, curiosity had gotten the best of them and well… here they were.

Ah. It seemed the group was there to explore the mystery of the Mirror. Dhruv hung back, opting to give Rou and her gang of investigators a wide berth.

For now, they would simply observe.

Default Desiree came with the professors/ Norman happened upon this ^_^
Rhibear ~ Madam Solo ~ Dark Brooding Girl ~ Accio Jedi ~ Gryffinclaw ~ Just a doll

After finding the book and strange letter, Desiree was more than a little eager to investigate the mirror herself. When Professor Liu suggested exactly that, she didn’t hesitate. She followed the professors from the library and stood beside Professor Liu at the mirror. She examined the mirror from all angles, front, back, and sides, searching for anything that might explain the flashing light from Elizabeth Burke’s story.

At first glance, it didn’t look much different than any other day. Same chandeliers, same paintings and draperies, same scene that vaguely reminded her of the Beast’s castle… no signs of flashing light. Then she saw… were those figures in the mirror? She couldn’t recall ever seeing a reflection in that mirror! She glanced at Professor Liu, blinking confusedly. “Did you see that, Professor? It looks like… people.”



“Iiiiiiiiiii’m comin’ up so you better get this party started…..”

The booming voice of Norman Carton rang through the corridor. The man himself appeared a fraction of a second later, dancing along to the song. He paused as he came to the mirror, his bluish-green eyes scanning the small group gathered. “Hey, hey, hey, party people!” he greeted with a biiiig smile and a dramatic wave. “What’s up? Is this an impromptu corridor party?”

He stared at the mirror as if admiring his own reflection… a reflection that seemed off somehow, like its expression and attire didn’t quite match the man standing by the mirror. He frowned. “Useless mirror, doesn’t even show a good reflection!’ he grumbled. Smiling again, he added, “How about we move this party somewhere a little more… festive?”

Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?

Brandon hadn't been seen all day- he was skipping class, of course. But he was on his way to the library (he had been planning on annoying Aurora again) when he encountered a big group of people outside the fourth floor mirror. That was like... tooootally weird of them.

He strolled up to the fringes of the group, observing what they were doing. "What's so interesting about this old thing? It doesn't even work right!" He snorted. "I've touched it before, and nothing happened to me." He just didn't understand what the big deal was.

Celeste followed Roulan and Ms. Marchand out of the library, noting Dhruv appeared to be joining them as well. Or not. AT least from a distance. The Defense professor was certainly one of those within the castle that had been acting out of sorts. She moved closer to the mirror under investigation, giving it her own focus to see what the others had been noticing. However, it was only so long before she was drawn out of it by the rather loud voice of one Norman Carton.

Talk about another fellow professor acting completely out of the norm of what Celeste had known him as.

“Actually I believe th’party is best here,” she commented to the younger man Words about moving them away from the mirror. “We think tis not an ordinary mirror, Norman.” Perhaps it would reach through what was up with the transfiguration professor, or it might not. The Ravenclaw head of house did strike her as someone who would be curious about the matter.

Normally.

And normally Mr. Fox wasn’t a delinquent student, the boy coming up to their group as well. Nor rude and snorting like the sound that just escaped him that came off as more than just teenager angst. “Ye did?” she questioned with a raised eyebrow at his mention of touching it. Having direct contact with the mirror and merely observing it were two different things.

Brandon needn’t worry about trying to find Aurora on the library to irritate for she had happened upon the group gathered around the mirror herself. She had no true reason for being present, perhaps it was a call from an unseen force or coincidence or maybe simply because it was on the way to the library and the gathering of Professors and students was obviously going to pique her interest.

However, Aurora hadn’t felt like socialising for a good few months now and the thought of there being so many around that were likely to bombard her with questions or annoy her with their actions and she wasn’t sure she even had the patience to deal with that. Instead she stood at the back of the group, arms folded across her chest as she awaited an opportunity to slip past. There were taking up a lot of the corridor after all just standing around.

“Excuuuuuse me” she heaved a response rather impatiently. “That dusty old mirror has been here for years and won’t age but I might if I can’t get past.”

At Desiree's question, Roulan took another tentative step forward as she peered closer at what the Hufflepuff had been seeing. She did see it too - it looked like there might have been a few figures, but one happened to stand out the most to her. Her head jerked back the slightest bit in surprise as she recognized the figure she was seeing, before her head turned slightly to observe the students and colleagues in the corridor. Had Dhruv joined them? She could see the Defense Professor among the group, but she also could have sworn she had seen the Professor in the mirror. "I definitely see something in there." She replied in response, her attention going to the object in question once more.

But this mirror didn't show reflections.

And then there was other students, Mr. Fox and Ms. Ackerly, joining them, as well as a rather boisterous Norman. If she wasn't mistaken... this was a good chunk of the individuals she had heard were acting rather differently than what everyone was used to. It was true that Rue had only been there for a term, so their characteristics were not as familiar, but she had noticed it here and there from the beginning of the term to now. Brandon's comment that he'd touched the mirror offered particular interest, and she was glad to hear Celeste's follow up question on that, before offering her own as she looked at the others. "Has anyone else touched the mirror this term?" House elves touched everything in the school, so it could be assumed that those who'd been acting particular might have... but what of the other students?

The suspicion forming in her head was then interrupted by the comment from young Aurora, and in an effort to part the sea of people, Rue moved back from her own spot, moving to step around to the other side of Dhruv allowing a small walk way. At least, it was meant to offer a small walk way, but as she moved, her cane caught in a notch in the stone corridor, sending her teetering towards the Defense Professor who she then bumped into, the trajectory of her fall being one that would just line up to push the Professor towards the mirror.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Dhruv observed it all, from the professors to the students. They paid attention to the words, all the while lurking in the background. Most interesting was Desiree having seen human figures in the Mirror. Then Norman joined the picture, a presence which left Dhruv wincing. Could that man shut it? Other than the wince, they did their best to ignore him. Thank goodness Celeste attempted to keep him in check. Their eyes bored into the back of Brandon’s head though after a moment their gaze shifted to Aurora.

However, it was Rou that held their attention the most. Dhruv felt as though they could probably see the wheels turning feverishly in her brain as he took a few steps closer to the Mirror. They had indeed touched the Mirror, many months ago. Which month was it? As they took a stroll down memory lane, their focus on what was going on drifted. This was why the DADA professor failed to notice Rou’s little accident.

One second Dhruv had both feet present on the floor and the next he was stumbling forward… and into the Mirror!

Uh oh!

Without the Mirror breaking or even cracking, there went your DADA professor! It was as though the Mirror had been a portal all along.[

follow me; everything is all right.

As the Defense Professor fell into the mirror, the surface rippled before the corridor was filled with a blinding flash of white light. A noise could be heard, almost the sound of something thumping onto the corridor floor. As the light dissipated, all standing in the corridor could see that there on the ground was one Defense Against the Dark Arts Professor returned from within.
