    "Hmm, that would have been an interesting trick. However..."

    The gun fired twice.

    The deposits were true deep-sea deposits on the real Engine, and were not intended to provide protection.

    There was not enough padding within the base that anyone who wished the Engine undamaged would allow it to fall into the base.

    "Ah, too bad. He's a bit stuffy for my tastes, but he's not as bad as all that."

    No one who has had access to the Engine up until its disappearance would intentionally risk harming it.

    "Oh, we aren't quite that incompetent. Please. A strong enough poke would have revealed that trick."

    The edges of the five sides of glass are fused properly to each other as well to make it a cube in total, when fused to the edges of the base.

    "Alright, there's a few ways I could take this one down. One way will make this last, one way will make this interesting. Now me, I will always choose interesting."

    Another red bullet was fired, the sound echoing throughout the room.

    The item observed in the glass case at the start of the story was the real Argos Engine.

    "Well you're just determined to destroy this thing, aren't you? Sorry, you're still barking up the wrong tree."

    The destruction/burning/melting of a physical object in the glass case would not be instantaneous enough nor thorough enough to completely avoid detection.

    "A hologram? Interesting. I examined it pretty closely though, though I admit through glass."

    There was definitely something physically present within the glass that looked like the Argos Engine when I examined it before the disappearance.

    "Not bad, not bad."

    The card is basic, well, actually pretty nice cardstock, and did not act as a catalyst for any chemical reaction.

    The Argos Engine was resting on the stand, not fixed to it. If the bottom flipped, the Engine would fall into the mechanisms.

    "If that was fine for the person who made it happen, you'll need to give your culprit."

    "Well that's an...interesting theory. Not sure why you went for mercury first."

    The state within the case, although kept constant and stable, was not sufficiently different from the outside air that making the inside the same as the outside would make whatever was inside the case melt away, be it mercury, dry ice, or some other substance.

    "A decent start, I suppose. Still, nope." Dinah raised her toy gun and pulled the trigger. With a bang, a red bullet shot out and struck down the blue.

    The glass was not held in place by an electromagnetic lock. It was chemically bonded to the base at the start of the night.

    (Sidenote: I found a picture of what I had in mind for how the display case generally looked.) alt text
