A slight gleam had flashed through her eyes at the innuendo, and she was still grinning as she picked up one of the heavy industrial flashlights that were clustered by the hole. “Honestly? We’ve only done the tour through a couple rooms. There could be anything down there.” Gavi looked thrilled.

Art's lips quirked at the corners and her eyes slid sideways, "Sounds like a good fucking time." She stooped to grab a flashlight of her own and moved to climb down the hole first.

Gavi let her, waiting as she climbed down. The ladder bucked a little, a few bolts sheared away by time - or other mishaps - making the journey feel distinctly perilous, as if the ladder would simply peel off the wall in a heartbeat. "God, someone was supposed to secure this with a sticking charm," Gavi snorted, watching her descent. "I think they just used chewing gum."

God.

Art jerked at the first sign of the ladder's instability, then scowled and caught her balance to descend the rest of the way with that little twitch in mind, compensating efficiently enough. She dropped the last foot and shuffled out of the way, mindful of her surroundings while she waited for Gavi to join her.

The corridor below was long, with doors and corridors branching off it at intervals. The same fluorescent lights had been set up to guide their path, and there were a series of post-it notes stuck to the brickwork, declaring what had already been cleared. At the end of the corridor it split in two, with a second large tunnel meandering off into darkness, appearing to lead down even further into the earth.

Pulling her sleeves over her hands to protect them, Gavi slithered rapidly down the ladder without any apparent care for the way it swayed and clanked against the stone, merely giving it a shove against the wall when she hit the floor just in case it had any ideas about breaking away.

"This is such prime dementor territory," she observed as she swivelled around, patting down her pockets like she'd forgotten something.

Artemis moved carefully to read the post-it notes, trying to suss out where they'd be headed as she waited for Gavi to join her. She glanced over at the pocket-patting and lifted her brows, "Forget something?"

The notes themselves were written in some kind of weirdass hieroglyphic/wingdings hybrid shorthand used by the demolitions operatives.

Her expression cleared after a minute as she pulled out a couple of chocolate bars and handed one to Artemis. “It’s dangerous to go alone; take this,” she joked, dropping her own back into the apparently quite deep depths of her dress pocket. “We’re breaking ground on what we think might be the armoury and lower basement holding cells,” Gavi told her, starting to head towards the end of the corridor, veering in the direction of the dark, creepy tunnel. “The biggest danger is going to be trip wires, and maybe some old bodies laying around, so watch what your feet are doing.”

She blinked down at the chocolate bar then pocketed it slowly like she wasn't really sure what was going on but also wasn't in a position to question it. Go with the flow, as it were. Art moved without hesitation to fall into step slightly behind Gavi, eyeing the creepy tunnel with a mixture of trepidation and morbid curiosity, "Trip wires and zombies, got it. Sounds like a fuckin party."

Her nose scrunched in a grin as she glanced back and up at Arty, and then focused on swinging her torch in a slow arc in front of them, illuminating the dank tunnel ahead.

“Have you ever been to the London Dungeon, or one of those Halloween horror houses?” Gavi asked, the light lingering on a fixture briefly, before she evidently dismissed it as harmless.

"Yeah! Actually." she bobbed her head, "Fuckin' riot except one of my mates pissed herself." she snickered at the memory.

Gavi laughed. “They should get golden shower hazard pay like the workers in Werewolf Control.”

Grinning back at her, Gavi nodded. "There was this case in the fifties where a guy got peed on by a werewolf, and then later that same night got sexually violated by a pack of actual wolves because of pheromones or something," she explained, scuffing forward a few paces and then stopping to check for traps. "So they introduced the hazard pay as a way to head off any lawsuits that might arise from similar incidents."

"Oh uh-- wow." she couldn't help a morbidly fascinated laugh that erupted, "That's-- some story, shit." Art's eyes were pinned on Gavi and her intermittent shuffling, hopefully learning a trick or two.

“You know you’re making a solid career choice when you see that on your contract,” she affirmed, crouching down to examine a small metal stake barely larger than a toothpick that was embedded into the wall at ankle height.

“Okay, this thing? Motion-sensitive explosive relay device,” Gavi told her, drawing attention to it. “It’s basically a tripwire for nerds. If you look down the other side of that wall, you’ll probably be able to find its buddy.” She pointed at the opposite side of the corridor.

Artemis dutifully followed Gavi's finger to peer at the opposite wall, "Alright how do we disarm it?"

"Easy," Gavi said, reaching into her pocket. "Grab your screwdriver, and use the handle to smash the ever-loving fuck out of it. On three, okay? We have to be coordinated or it might activate the malfunction backup and cave the tunnel in."

O_O

Oh god it was the bomb with Conall all over again.

But she'd survived that and, honestly, she'd never quite had a high like it since. No drugs or alcohol had come close to replicating that holy shit I survived feeling.

Art's lips pursed and she slid her hand into her pocket to pull out the screwdriver stowed there. Then, still crouching, she shuffled sideways to locate the paired stake more accurately. Once she had it she nodded, "Yeah, fuck, alright. On three." Art agreed before letting Gavi do the count.

"One...two..." Gavi raised her screwdriver - "Three!" and brought it down hard on the stake, which buckled and then snapped off, falling to the floor with a plinking sound.

Artemis did the same, gritting her teeth and wincing until a second ticked by and they hadn't exploded, "Nice." she enthused, glancing over to study Gavi's work.
