Food? Food.

Feeling slightly famished from this morning's work load, Aron grabbed a plate and then gave the food a glance over. His eating habits had changed a bit over the years, not keeping to such a strict vegan diet anymore - though he subconsciously blamed Seren for that due to all of her pregnancy cravings she had had - but he was still hesitant to pick up a hamburger and take a huge bite out of it. Even if it did look rather mouthwatering...oh...what the heck. Maybe just ONE of these burgers.

Dropping it on to his plate, he then selected a few of the salad skewers and one of the chilled soups in a cup. He preferred his soup in a bowl and found this glass a bit to delicate for his liking, but at least the soup was good and went down nice and smooth.

Setting down the now empty glass, he leaned against one of the tables and began to crunch away at a skewer. Now...to see if he could spot some of his new employees...

Preferably before they spotted him...

Tucker was super excited to FINALLY be at his first Ministry event. Now things were REAL - he was finally going to be a Ministry employee! And he was only 19 - a whole three years YOUNGER than his mum had been before she got a job. Things were looking up for him!

Was he smiling like a loon? He felt like he couldn't stop smiling!

The first stop on today's Ministry adventure - FOOD. Now that Tucker lived in a flat on his own in London, he was trying super hard to eat healthy - but BURGERS. He hadn't had a burger since he was probably like...five years old. Gabi Schultz was real big on the whole healthy, organic food stuff. He just had to remind himself that just because he didn't live with his mum anymore, he didn't have to go crazy with the food and blow up like a balloon...

As he was loading his plate, he noticed the man next to him seemed...familiar. It took Tucker a moment, but then he recognized him as none other than Aron Ashburry-Hawthrone, his new department head! He was not going to admit it to him, but the eager new employee had TOTALLY done some research into the department and stumbled upon his name and picture in a few articles.

Taking a few deep breaths, Tucker put a smile on his face and approached the man. "Mr. Ashburry-Hawthrone?" he said, even though he knew who it was - wait, did he use both last names? Oh Merlin this was confusing! Don't get flustered Tucker, don't get flustered..."HI! I just wanted to introduce myself...I'm Tucker Schultz, I just got a job on your level in the Experimental Charms Committee," he explained with a smile. GRIN. Ok, ease up on the smiling, Schultz, don't want to freak him out or anything...

Where was the food?

Sophie quickly made her way from the entranceway that was quickly filling up with people to the food marquees hoping to find something to eat that would settle her nervous stomach. This was almost depending on how you saw it her first official day at the ministry. Nervously tugging a few brown strands of hair back behind her ears, she sincerely hoped for the 1000th time that day that she wouldn’t screw it up in some way.

Taking a deep breath, she made her way over on her new high heels that the shopkeeper had insisted was a must have along with her colourful red dress. It had been useless to point out numerous times that Sophie’s balance wasn't exactly perfect. Grabbing a tray Sophie neared an older man and a younger guy by the canapés. "Hello," she murmured flashing them both big warm smiles. "Are the skewers edible? Or should I go for the safer option of a soup?" Sophie figured that she could make some polite conversation with the men. It couldn't hurt. For all she knew they could be employees of the same department.

Were those real bone china teacups? The Ministry was really going all out for these orientation events, weren't they? Was the Wizarding economy really doing as well as all that?

Mitterbill nervously detached himself from the wife-person and floated over to the food Marquee. Everything looked so indecent. Beautifully put together and terribly bad for you. Everything Jasper Mitterbill's soft spot for pleasures called him to respond to. The Balsamic Strawberry Bruschetta couldn't be too bad. This was the thought he'd used to reassure himself as he took hold of one of them and placed it onto his plate.

Again, with the shocking lack of seafood.

Victoria had left the entrance way and headed towards the food. She wished Cossy could have come with her, but he was back at work and so was she. The food area looked very pretty and Victoria looked around. Not seeing Mariel she decided that maybe her boss was in another room or busy doing department head things. So she decided she'd get some food while here.

Smiling to the others as she walked past, Vic got a plate and put a few things on it. Taking a wine she turned and found an empty table. Pulling out her seat and sitting down, she decided it would be alright to slip her shoes off for a moment. She had spent a lot of time at home this break and heels were not something that she wore.

Gregory walked finally left the entrance still feeling pretty awkward but expectedly so. He was in a new place with new people. His eyes caught sight of a table that seemed to possess lots of food and he smiled. Now there was something he understood. Walking up to the table he grabbed a plate and put one of just about everything even stuff he wasn't sure about. Grabbing a draught he looked around for a seat and wandered over to an empty table.

Mariel was not intending to do much more than make an appearance as she did not really care to stay. Certainly the last New Year's Eve ball the Ministry put on was simply stunning and she enjoyed herself tremendously with her then fiance. But she had the feeling this garden party was going to be only slightly more than underwhelming and she was merely here because it was to be expected. Not that she would have an affected attitude because of lack of desire to be in attendance. She would still be cordial and welcoming, but she'd also be leaving when she saw the opportunity.

She did somewhat wish that Jorge could have come with her, but with his sister and her family visiting for the weekend, it was only hospitable that he stay for them. And that was probably another reason for her not wanting to be here all that much, but it gave her good reason to excuse herself sooner than later. She did hope they understood that she had work obligations.

Food would be the first order of the day as she was growing rather hungry already and her hand went subconsciously to her swollen belly as she headed straight for the marquee. Everything looked so delicious and she grabbed a plate before piling on several of the canapes. Turning to grab one of the drinks from the table, she noticed one of her fellow Department Heads.. one whose name she had only just learned because of his recent promotion. Otherwise she'd still be calling him Mystery Man.. not that she'd mind to be called Miss Jarvey.

"Hello, Mr. Mitterbill," she said brightly, green eyes scanning the selection of beverages. She did miss having wine, though the strawberry lemonade wouldn't be a bad choice. Grabbing the glass, she turned her attention on the man in front of her again. "How are you settling in?" She knew he had the position for a couple months now, but it had been something of an adjustment for herself, she remembered, even the first year or so.

Pulling out her seat and sitting down, she decided it would be alright to slip her shoes off for a moment. She had spent a lot of time at home this break and heels were not something that she wore.
Once she had engaged in some small talk with Mr. Mitterbill, Mariel turned to take her plate to a table and find a seat. She did love her heels and, though she was finding herself wearing lower, chunkier heels, it was becoming a little more difficult with her progressive pregnancy to wear them comfortably. Sitting to eat was what she needed right now.

Preferably with someone familiar.. or even one of her new employees. She did wish to welcome them into the Ministry if either of them did happen to attend and that would be a two birds with one stone sort of thing. Then she could leave all that more quickly. A light smile formed on her lips at the thought and she walked towards the tables. She didn't notice anyone distinctly new.. not that she knew what her employees looked like by sight yet, but she did spot a familiar face that made her smile even wider. Her best friend. Good company would make her stay here tolerable and even enjoyable.

"Well, hello, Mrs. Culloden," the brunette said with a grin as she set her plate down on the table before pulling out the seat across from her. "How's married life treating you?" It had only been a week since she'd seen her, but she wanted to hear all about how happy she was certain Victoria was. Gently, she lowered herself into the chair for some small talk and some food.

William hadn't realized how weird these Ministry events were going to be without a certain someone by his side. He'd actually considered skipping this one, but since he had just gotten a promotion and there would be free, GOOD food there, he made himself go.

He just had no idea how to dress for a garden party. A garden party? In January? It was nice out and all but... he was keeping his jacket on. Annnnnd making a beeline for the food table, making a beeline for the food table, andddd here he was, at the food table. The tall dragon lover kept his head down and generally avoided talking to anyone he knew, since they were all talking to other people anyway. Whatever. He'd just pile his plate so high with food that he would have an excuse to keep his mouth full all night.

This was healthy, yep. William started on his mission at hopefully the correct end of the buffet table this time.

Some women would rather starve at these kind of events than just get themselves a plate of food and be seen eating. Daphne wasn't one of those women. She wasn't about to stuff her face with food, no, but she was hungry, so here she was. She stepped in line behind a man who looked not too much older than her. She wasn't really aiming to interact with him, because that seemed kind of strange while standing in the line for food.

If they knew each other any better, or at all for that matter, she might would make a joking comment about him leaving some food for the people behind him. As it was, she couldn't even see his face, so she had no idea who he was or what he looked like, so she just left well enough alone. It was too bad she didn't know anybody from her department. She shifted her weight from one foot to the other as she thought about the best way to make it through the event without looking awkward and in need of friends.

The line stalled then, because obviously somebody was taking a really long time, so Daphne shifted her weight from foot to foot once again. Someone across the table passed her a smile just then, and giving him a random introduction, she said, "Daphne Addison, the new Senior Dragon Researcher."

William was honestly starting to run out of plate room, something that had never happened to him before. Even if it didn't necessarily FEEL like a garden party here, the food options had him convinced he was at one (despite never being to such a party before). And he was going to try everything.

Or so he'd thought, until he started imagining FEELING judgy LOOKS from the other Ministry workers. "Almost doneeeeee, gosh," he muttered darkly under his breath, pausing at the end of the line now as he tried to make a choice of pâtisserie. Ooh la la, le fancy!

He glanced to the person next to him, some woman who was now... shoot, shouldn't have looked at her. She was introducing herself. To him? He didn't know, he sure hadn't been paying attention. But she'd definitely said something about DRAGONS, which caught his attention, and so now he would have to say something back.

"You new?" he half-grunted, remembering his manners a moment too late. Uhhh. He cleared his throat and tried again, "...to level four? Are you new to level four?" There, he'd said a complete sentence. Good job William.

Anddddddd piling on the desserts, piling on the desserts....all the desserts...

The man she'd been introducing herself to moved on to adding more to his plate, so Daphne turned to face forward once again. The line seemed to be moving, at least, and they'd even reached the desserts! She focused her attention on the first man she'd seen here, the one who'd been piling his plate in mountain form since she got here. She wasn't really bothered with that but thought it was kind of amusing. Especially since other people seemed to be giving him looks, which he wasn't too happy about. Poor guy.

Daphne spooned a piece of pie on to her plate just before a grunt of a greeting was tossed her way. Oh, it was the man--the first one she's seen here. Go figure. "I am," she answered, and she'd say her new job title, too, but she figured he'd heard that part. "Tell me you're in Creatures, too. Everybody I've met tonight's on a different level, and it'd be nice to see who I'll be working with." She'd met Emmalee, who was on level four, but she was in the Environment department. This guy, she thought, would be awesome to work with. He seemed carefree and like he could care less what others thought about him. Daphne just thought he'd maybe woken up on the wrong side of the bed or something this morning.

She wasn't really bothered with that but thought it was kind of amusing. Especially since other people seemed to be giving him looks, which he wasn't too happy about. Poor guy.

Daphne spooned a piece of pie on to her plate just before a grunt of a greeting was tossed her way. Oh, it was the man--the first one she's seen here. Go figure. "I am," she answered, and she'd say her new job title, too, but she figured he'd heard that part. "Tell me you're in Creatures, too. Everybody I've met tonight's on a different level, and it'd be nice to see who I'll be working with." She'd met Emmalee, who was on level four, but she was in the Environment department. This guy, she thought, would be awesome to work with. He seemed carefree and like he could care less what others thought about him. Daphne just thought he'd maybe woken up on the wrong side of the bed or something this morning.


William ended up squeezing one of each of the dessert choices on his plate, quite a feat to be sure, and then edging out of the way of the woman and all the JUDGY JUDGERS behind him. Okay so yes, she was definitely a dragon person then. ANOTHER DRAGON PERSON. This event was looking up already.

"I am in Creatures," he answered, much more cheerfully now. "I'm the Head Dragon Researcher? So I guess..." if he'd heard her correctly, "..that sort of makes me your direct supervisor?"

Was Tanc here? Tanc should come over and then they could have a dragon party. First though, he was going to pick out a place to sit. Willy edged a little farther away from the buffet, waiting for the woman so he could tell her more about Level Four.

Cassie strode into the Ministry welcome event, ready for action. She wasn't sure exactly what the purpose of this event was. Just for mingling with future coworkers? That sounded good to her. She did like meeting new people, and it would be good to get to know some of the people she would be working with before she actually started working with them. She was dressed in a beautiful new dress she'd found the other day, and a pair of tall black heels. They made her even taller than she had been before, and she liked it that way. In her opinion, it made her look more confident. Good. She also had a camera hanging around her neck. Just in case she needed it.

As soon as she got to the event, Cassie made right for the food. None of the rest of the stations looked all that appealing to her, at least not at the moment. Maybe she could play croquet later if she met somebody she'd want to play with. In the meantime, she surveyed the menu and considered what she might like.

Was he smiling like a loon? He felt like he couldn't stop smiling!



The first stop on today's Ministry adventure - FOOD. Now that Tucker lived in a flat on his own in London, he was trying super hard to eat healthy - but BURGERS. He hadn't had a burger since he was probably like...five years old. Gabi Schultz was real big on the whole healthy, organic food stuff. He just had to remind himself that just because he didn't live with his mum anymore, he didn't have to go crazy with the food and blow up like a balloon...

As he was loading his plate, he noticed the man next to him seemed...familiar. It took Tucker a moment, but then he recognized him as none other than Aron Ashburry-Hawthrone, his new department head! He was not going to admit it to him, but the eager new employee had TOTALLY done some research into the department and stumbled upon his name and picture in a few articles.

Taking a few deep breaths, Tucker put a smile on his face and approached the man. "Mr. Ashburry-Hawthrone?" he said, even though he knew who it was - wait, did he use both last names? Oh Merlin this was confusing! Don't get flustered Tucker, don't get flustered..."HI! I just wanted to introduce myself...I'm Tucker Schultz, I just got a job on your level in the Experimental Charms Committee," he explained with a smile. GRIN. Ok, ease up on the smiling, Schultz, don't want to freak him out or anything...

Where was the food?

Sophie quickly made her way from the entranceway that was quickly filling up with people to the food marquees hoping to find something to eat that would settle her nervous stomach. This was almost depending on how you saw it her first official day at the ministry. Nervously tugging a few brown strands of hair back behind her ears, she sincerely hoped for the 1000th time that day that she wouldn’t screw it up in some way.

Taking a deep breath, she made her way over on her new high heels that the shopkeeper had insisted was a must have along with her colourful red dress. It had been useless to point out numerous times that Sophie’s balance wasn't exactly perfect. Grabbing a tray Sophie neared an older man and a younger guy by the canapés. "Hello," she murmured flashing them both big warm smiles. "Are the skewers edible? Or should I go for the safer option of a soup?" Sophie figured that she could make some polite conversation with the men. It couldn't hurt. For all she knew they could be employees of the same department.

So much for that plan. He had been looking left when the young man had come from the right. He took another chomp out of his skewer, swallowed, and set the vacant thing on his plate before that too was set down on the table.

The name Schultz still left a bit of a bad aftertaste in his mouth, based primarily on the conversation he and the former Department Head had had in the Leaky. He could tell she had had ulterior motives to her words, and his suspicions had been completely correct...so now the giddy Schultz before him, well, red flags were a waving. But what real damage could a 19-year-old really do?

The answer was plenty, but oh well.

"Ah, nice to meet you properly in person, Tucker. Do you mind if I call you that?" he asked as he offered the boy his hand for a firm handshake. He preferred to be on a first name basis with those within his own department. Relaxed yet a bit more intimate. "I am well aware of your new job, considering that I was the one who gave it to you," he winked.

Cute. Eager. Just the kick in the pants that that division needed.

They were soon met by yet another one of the new hires for the department. Aron recognized her as well from her application and thankfully had heard a thing or two from Seren, who had taught the girl briefly. He looked at the food table briefly before speaking. "Well, I don't suppose that the wood they are made from it made from a poisonous variety of tree," he mused, taking her words literally with a sarcastic tone. "But I would still only recommend that you eat what is on the skewer. There are Healers about if you dare to be a bit adventurous."

And what a way to start off the new year at the Ministry. One of his own employees eating a skewer for the fun of it.

"Tucker, this is Sophie. Sophie, this is Tucker. Both of you will be new to the department this year." So play nice and don't be awkward mandrakes about it.

Mitterbill nervously detached himself from the wife-person and floated over to the food Marquee. Everything looked so indecent. Beautifully put together and terribly bad for you. Everything Jasper Mitterbill's soft spot for pleasures called him to respond to. The Balsamic Strawberry Bruschetta couldn't be too bad. This was the thought he'd used to reassure himself as he took hold of one of them and placed it onto his plate.

Again, with the shocking lack of seafood.
Aron looked away from his conversation with his two employees briefly to give Jasper a wave. Having briefly conversed in the past, Aron was relieved to know that one of the new Department Heads this year was a familiar face and not someone he needed to start at ground zero with. Social interactions and busy talk could be so exhausting and time consuming.

Others got small waves as they entered as well, but nothing more for the time being. Plenty of time to catch up with other employees.

Picking up one of the specialty drinks - not really caring which one - his shoulder nearly bumped into one of the newer arrivals to the table.

"Op, sorry there. Nearly created my own catastrophe just now," he chuckled. Sophie and Tucker would appreciate the joke, right? He then spotted the camera around her neck. "You here with the Daily Prophet?" Did she want a picture? He could be sure to give her his good side.

Cassie was a bit distracted by the food in front of her. She wasn't really paying attention to the people around her. She did keep one hand resting gently on top of her camera. Even when she was being distracted by food, she would go to great lengths to protect her camera. It was extremely precious.

Cassie's moved toward the table to grab a mint lemonade, because it sounded weird so why not? Maybe she should have been paying more attention, because she almost ran into someone else. She tuned in to what was going on around her and smiled at the man. "No problem." She picked up her mint lemonade and took a sip. Interesting.

Daily Prophet? Her head tilted ever so slightly to the side, accompanied by a small frown of confusion. Oh yeah, that was the name of the local wizarding paper. Cassie had just recently taken out a subscription to it. She shook her head. "No. More of a hobby really." Her American accent was painfully obvious to her ears, especially considering the accents of the people surrounding her. She decided to continue the conversation with this man. "Are you from accidents and catastrophes?" It would make sense, meaning his statement was supposed to be a pun to all who understood.

Walking up to the table he grabbed a plate and put one of just about everything even stuff he wasn't sure about. Grabbing a draught he looked around for a seat and wandered over to an empty table.

He was walking around looking for his 4 new employees, wanting to make sure they were joining in nicely and not looking too lost at least! He spotted Cassie near the food and was about to approach when Aron nearly bumped into her and smiled, grabbing a drink himself before joining her at the table sitting across. He wasn't too hungry but thought he should at least look sociable.

He didn't wish to interrupt so he just looked around to see if he saw Hee-chul, Gregory or Krel, as he took a sip from his drink. As he was looking around he spotted Gregory at another table close by, and smiled at Cassie and nodded towards him, inviting her to join them if she wished when she was free.

Moving he got up and went to the other table "Hello Gregory. It's great to see you joined us here."

Daphne settled for just the one piece of pie she'd already put on her plate then stepped away from the buffet. It was only then that she got a good look at the man's plate, and Merlin, she wanted to laugh. Not laugh at him, but just laugh at how one person managed to get all those desserts on that plate. "That's a lot of desserts," she said with a smile. Hopefully he wouldn't throw one at her now that she'd said that.

She smiled again, the time a little bigger. "I was wondering when I'd meet somebody I'd be working with. Oh, and my supervisor at that!" she added. This man would be excellent to work for, she'd already concluded. Surely long days in the office wouldn't be a pain with Mr. Dessert leading the way. "I'm really looking forward to getting started. I've been working with dragons for about fourteen years now." Looking around, she added, "Are any of the others here?" The others in their division?

Pity too. The floral decorations in it had been appealing. Still, not wanting to waste, he drank the rest of it in one gulped, winced, and then set it back down on the table.

"Oh, an American! Sorry 'bout the assumption. Just so used to those folks with their cameras and slimy reporters sticking their noses around Ministry functions," he said, his own foreign accent quite obvious as well. He eyed the drinks again, but thought better of it and instead plucked a tomato off his food plate to try and cover up the aftertaste. "I've done some delving into photography myself, haven't for a while though. Excellent day to take some pictures. The flora is breathtaking here."

He gave his badge a small pat. Probably should place it on his outermost jacket rather than his shirt underneath...but effort. "I am. Aron Ashburry-Hawthorne at your service. Department Head of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. And where, pay tell, is the lucky department you have been placed in?"

Although spotting the way Giddy was looking this direction gave a pretty firm indication.

She did love her heels and, though she was finding herself wearing lower, chunkier heels, it was becoming a little more difficult with her progressive pregnancy to wear them comfortably. Sitting to eat was what she needed right now.

Preferably with someone familiar.. or even one of her new employees. She did wish to welcome them into the Ministry if either of them did happen to attend and that would be a two birds with one stone sort of thing. Then she could leave all that more quickly. A light smile formed on her lips at the thought and she walked towards the tables. She didn't notice anyone distinctly new.. not that she knew what her employees looked like by sight yet, but she did spot a familiar face that made her smile even wider. Her best friend. Good company would make her stay here tolerable and even enjoyable.

"Well, hello, Mrs. Culloden," the brunette said with a grin as she set her plate down on the table before pulling out the seat across from her. "How's married life treating you?" It had only been a week since she'd seen her, but she wanted to hear all about how happy she was certain Victoria was. Gently, she lowered herself into the chair for some small talk and some food.
Her mind was soon gone back at home with her girls, her husband, things that had happened with Bart and Cinna when someone speaking brought her out of it. Her brown eyes looked up and she grinned to see her best friend standing there. "I was wondering when I'd find you." She was going to make a joke about the food, but figured it probably wasn't the right time. "You look stunning, that dress is just adorable on you and your belly." That little girl was just getting bigger it seemed.

"I'll tell you what, I'm struggling to remember my own name." She chuckled, "Introduced myself as Maroon and then quickly changed it. I had to look like an idiot, but I do love hearing Mrs. Culloden." It had a nice ring to it. "Married life is treating me wonderful, though he's back to Hogwarts, so it's back to weekend and maybe once or twice a week visits. " She wasn't sure if she'd ever get use to that part. "Mother hood on the other hand has been giving my a run for my money, or should I say at least Bart has." Teeenagers! "But enough about me, how are you feeling? Where is Jorge tonight, I thought maybe with him being the new Ministry reporter he'd be here." Though he probably didn't have to be since Mariel could just tell him what he needed to know.

Even if it did look rather mouthwatering...oh...what the heck. Maybe just ONE of these burgers.

Dropping it on to his plate, he then selected a few of the salad skewers and one of the chilled soups in a cup. He preferred his soup in a bowl and found this glass a bit to delicate for his liking, but at least the soup was good and went down nice and smooth.

Setting down the now empty glass, he leaned against one of the tables and began to crunch away at a skewer. Now...to see if he could spot some of his new employees...

Preferably before they spotted him...


Jasmine was quite nervous coming here. She didn't really know anyone in her field and she only knew Alex would be here too. But as she made her way into the party she found the food and drink tent. She smiled and thought why not and check out what they have. She looked at the menu and thought they had great choices. But she wasn't hungry just yet. She wanted to look around more. As she was looking around, she noticed someone familiar.....

OH! It was her department head! What was his name again...? Aron was it? She thought she might as well introduce herself and then not bother him and be on her way. She took timid steps to him. She always thought bosses were intimidating. She cleared her throat and looked at her dress to make sure it look presentable. Yup it did. She smiled and said, "Hello Mr. Hawthorne, I am Jasmine, Jasmine Lenkim.." she held out her hand for him to shake. Her shawl drooped off her shoulder and fixed it instantly. She wanted to make a first good impression and all. She said her last name in case he forgot. "I would like to introduce myself to you in person since we have only talking via Owls..." she grinned. She tried to make her tone light but she was totally nervous.

Cassie did her new boss standing not far away. She raised her hand in greeting, but he was too far away for her to do much else. She didn't want to raise her voice from too far away, and he didn't seem inclined to join her. She nodded back to show she got the message as he sat by someone else. Maybe she would join him in a bit. In the meantime, she turned her attention back to the man in front of her.

Cassie watched in amusement as the man tried out his drink. He didn't seem to enjoy it much, but she was impressed that he managed to down the entire thing in one swallow. She didn't comment, instead she took a small sip of her own. Mint lemonade. Who would think up such a thing?

"It's quite alright," she said about the mistake. "I can see how the camera may be misleading. I've been working as a journalist and photographer for a while now, for a few American papers. I suppose I'll have to stop now that I have a job here." She supposed the two would be quite different. That didn't mean one would necessarily be better than the other. Just different. She nodded at his mention of the flowers. "They are beautiful. I may end up just wandering around and taking pictures of the flowers." And the people too. She did like taking pictures of people, but she liked talking to them as well. At an event like this one, she would have to balance both.

"Pleasure to meet you Aron. I'm Cassandra White, but you can call me Cassie." She did love the name Cassandra: it sounded so regal. But it was too formal for her taste most of the time. She'd taken to being called Cassie in school and it stuck. Oh, he was a Department Head? He must really know the ins and outs of his department. Accidents and Catastrophes sounded interesting, but Cassie liked where she'd been placed. "International Magical Cooperation." Had he noticed her Department Head wandering around?

He wasn't too hungry but thought he should at least look sociable.

He didn't wish to interrupt so he just looked around to see if he saw Hee-chul, Gregory or Krel, as he took a sip from his drink. As he was looking around he spotted Gregory at another table close by, and smiled at Cassie and nodded towards him, inviting her to join them if she wished when she was free.

Moving he got up and went to the other table "Hello Gregory. It's great to see you joined us here."
Food!!!!! Gregory was stuffing his face so fast it was surprising he wasn't choking or something. He couldn't help it really the food was good. Well...aside from the weird things but hey he wasn't going to turn down free food. Have to pay for that schooling some how.

He was in mid bite when his boss sat down across from him. HIS BOSS!!! His eyes went wide a little bit without him noticing and he finished chewing the food that was still in his mouth. Swallowing he nodded, "Hello sir." He eyed his still overflowing plate a little sheepishly afraid he'd make mention of it. "It is orientation after all," he said with a little chuckle. Wait...but what if he wasn't the laughing type. UGH. Nothing like being caught off guard.

Tabitha was famished but she wasn't too sure as to what to try so she decided to play it safe. Tabitha walked up to the beautifully laid out table and picked up a plate. She placed on it a potato with creme fraiche and bacon canapé, a skewered Caesar salad and a lemon meringue flower. She grabbed a small cup of coffee and decided to walk around. Her feet were not used to the heels she was wearing.

Maybe she would join him in a bit. In the meantime, she turned her attention back to the man in front of her.
He smiled her way when she nodded to him.

He smiled kindly at the man when his eyes widened, heh he didn't blame the guy, the food was good. Heh, he saw Torie and Jay eat like that enough times it didn't bother him none. "Please. Call me Gidyun or Gid." he said gently. He smiled at the comment and laugh, his eyes lit up a little "Indeed. Are you getting on well?" Or had he come directly to the food? Heh! Many of his employees had come to these orientations, save for a few anyway. Last year they hadn't even put on an orientation!
