”Little is known about their workplace, and even less is known about their jobs"

"Department of Mysteries." A cool voice echoed through the lift to announce your arrival, and you file out behind the accompanying group of people as the golden gates slide open with a metallic clanking. You recognize some of the others from your time at Hogwarts, and even shared small smiles of recognition with a few of them as you stepped out into the corridor. The air was buzzing with a tense excitement, and everyone stood stiffly in front of a dark, wooden door as they waited for further instructions.

A man, cloaked in a nondescript black coat with a Ministry of Magic badge around his neck, stood before the group with his dark eyes trained on every individual in turn.
"Welcome to the Department of Mysteries. For whatever reason, each of you have come here to experience the orientation process to becoming an Unspeakable." His gaze falls on yours, and you feel yourself tense with a jolt of intimidation and anxiety. "As you well know, this position is considered the most highly classified in the entire Ministry."

With a wave of his wand, a handful of notebooks whizzed through the air and rested themselves in the hands of all those waiting before him. You take your own, and run a shaking hand over the binder's cool, smooth surface. "While you are touring the department, we will allow you to take any notes you feel necessary to determine your interest in this position. What you write down should reflect your feelings about the work we do here, and you will be allowed time after the tour to reflect on what you have observed." He gestured to the notebooks with a meaningful look. "This job, mind you, is not for the faint of heart. At the end of your reflections, you will be given the option to either join our ranks as an Apprentice, or, you will be obliviated and sent on your way."

At the mention of obliviation, you feel the entire group take a collective breath, and then the door was opened.
T A S K

Congrats on being an archivist Mocca <3

Am I allowed to place some kind of "introduction" at the start like in a third person POV before changing to a noting format?

Yes, you may, it is up to you.
As long as your entry follows the prompt, with a minimum of 250 words, and has a description of at least one of the rooms listed on the first post.
Good luck!

So are we describing the actual rooms as they are in the books or are we making up our own ideas about what each room means?

Is there something we're supposed to click for the rooms, or are we making it up on how to describe it?

Our apologies for the late response, we've all been getting back into work and school after the holidays.

I'll try and answer all the questions in one here. In this contest, you are being given a tour of the Department of Mysteries as part of orientation in the hopes of gaining an apprenticeship and have been asked to make notes about your views, opinions and aspects that you find interesting or important.

So, although we don't want you all to just rewrite a passage or two from the Department of Mysteries chapters, please don't add details that would flagrantly contradict any obvious canon information, for example describing the Death Chamber as a dusty closet with a tombstone or something, we want each individual's thoughts, feelings and personal reflections on what you see on the tour and what it means to you.

If you aren't sure what any of the rooms are, you can find information in the Harry Potter books, in the films and on various websites.
