The Seating Area

Right as you exit the areas set aside for the main buffet, the juice bar, and the dessert bar, you'll come into a section filled with enough tables and chairs to accommodate the large number of employees working at the Ministry of Magic. There's really nothing special here. The tables and chairs are typical of those you'd find in any other cafeteria, with the exception of the multi-colored theme that seems fairly evident throughout the food court. So grab a chair; a red one, blue one, yellow one...whichever you'd like! Enjoy your meal, and please--come again!

Seeing that he was way too early for work that day, Architect Max Beaugard made his way towards the Cafeteria of the Ministry to get his morning chow. He usually won’t leave his house with an empty stomach, but lately he has this urge to start the day earlier than usual. Why?

His youngest nephew happens to be in Hogwarts right now, and Max was uber delighted to have him finally in his old Alma Mater—all thanks to his other nephew; Mordred. As soon as he got his tea and blueberry muffin, Max unbuttoned his suit, sat comfortably on the chair and opened Ethan’s first letter for him from Hogwarts. Max grinned to himself as he was regaled by Ethan’s words—it felt like the boy was just beside him yapping all the good stuff that happened the other night. His heart swelled with pride too as his nephew revealed that Ethan ended up in Slytherin. “Silly boy. Your mother and father were both Snakes.” Although he did wonder about the Sorting Hat’s decision. It was very unlikely to put Ethan in a house full of sober kids; well at least during his and his sisters’ time, but the ancient hat knew better.

Max folded the letter neatly and inserted it in between his moleskin journal. He took a sip of his tea, and unfolded the Daily Prophet with his other hand. Unnatural Gingered Harpy. “Ah yes. Some weirdo trying to have a good time.” But it was no joke, since the threat was somehow directed to student athletes, but ultimately to the Headmistress, yes? Max simply shook his head, smirked and continued to sip his tea. “It’s a good thing Ethan doesn’t play Quidditch. For once, I am happy he’s into that muggle sport called…boarding skate. Or was it skate boarding?”

Even so, he's still worried.

Victoria had left the house as she always did during the work week that she had the twins. Once she dropped the girls off with her mother and made sure they had all their things, since their father would be getting them for the rest of the week, she made her way to the ministry. It wasn’t until she entered the building that her stomach grumbled and she realized she had never taken the time to eat. She hadn’t realized how much Bart actually helped out in the mornings until just that moment.

Making her way to the food court she just hoped it was up and running. Now that they knew what had been going and Mr. hero had giving the bug killer to departments things hopefully would be getting back to normal. Receiving her food and coffee Vic made her way to a seat and sat down to begin eating when something caught her eye.

Trying to ignore the prophet in the man’s hand she shook her head and took a bite of bagel. Swallowing she just felt more annoyed at all the thoughts she was having. Hearing a comment from the man her brown eyes lifted. Yep he was reading that bloody article. “Ridiculous all of it.” She couldn’t stop shaking her head. “They best be finding the wacko that wrote it to make sure he or she doesn’t waste anyone else’s time.” Did they know how many owls she was getting over this? Teams were not happy about any of it.

That reminds him, Ethan’s birthday is drawing near and he needs to get his nephew a nice present. The young teenager wanted a new skateboard, but Max has no idea where to get one. The man turned the page of the Prophet and read the advertisements, hoping to get a clue as to where he can buy the damned skateboard or anything that will make Ethan happy. It has to be special though, because reasons.

Max brought the cup to his lips but paused as soon as he heard someone talk. Apparently the woman was talking to him since it was just the two of them; seeing it was still an ungodly hour to be in the office. The architect felt a little bit uncomfortable with the situation. You see, the man is an introvert. He doesn’t converse much with the others unless it was Anthony—his boss. But then again, it was the perfect opportunity to make friends, no? “I say it’s immature. But brilliant, nonetheless.”

Sip.

He said as he folded the Prophet neatly and placed it on his table. “Threatening innocent students, to get his or her ultimate goal.” Parents of students must be very worried by now. Max wondered if Aldred and Mordred were already informed, although he was sure that Ethan must have gotten numerous owls from his dad and cousin by now. They were proper Slytherins, but big worry-warts when it came down to family. “Are you from the MLE?” because she looked stressed out by all of this. He was glad he didn’t belong to that department, although his sister would have been thrilled if she was still alive.

“Brilliant? Threating the lives of children is brilliant?” She herself could say that she didn’t believe one word of the wacko that wrote the letter, but she wouldn’t call him/her brilliant either. “I would use many more words for this individual, but brilliant is not one of them.” Sipping her coffee she wondered about the mentality of the person she was sitting next too. Was he just amused by it all or did he really thinking that threating people was a brilliant idea.

Her eyes widened at his words, “The ultimate goal and what is that goal? Ruining fun for children? Putting pathetic threats on something that is a fun, active sport, or throwing words around that make no sense what so ever.” Wasting money, that was the most ridiculous part about the entire thing. Oh it was too early for all of this and she rubbed her temples. Was she going to have to deal with this in the public for long?

Not hungry anymore she pushed her bagel aside and just sipped her coffee hoping it would give her something to get through the day. His question threw her a bit and she realized how incredibly rude she must sound. When on earth did she get so bold recently? Giving a small smile to the man she set her coffee down. “I am terribly sorry, you must think I’m such hot head. You just hit a nerve I’m afraid.” She stuck out her hand. “Victoria Maroon, Division Manager of the Quidditch department.” Now did he see why he hit the nerve?

Ah yes, right there. The problem with the majority of the adults is that they only see one side of the coin. Max understood where the lady’s coming from, but for a wacko to think of something that can easily manipulate his or her prey by using someone else’s unexpected weakness is brilliant. Well, who is to kid, anyway? Not everyone thinks the way he does. “Threatening the lives of children isn’t brilliant. But the wacko’s way of getting what he wants; whatever it is, is…” Max trailed off as he slowly bit his tongue to stop himself from further ruining the woman’s morning, especially now that he knows what department she came from.

Max wondered what it’s like now in their area. “Please accept my apology, Ms. Maroon.” Pause. “I do have a different perspective on things, but I did not mean to upset you.” That will be weird and rude since it’s their first time to meet. “Victor Maximilian Beaugard, Magical Architect, Level Eight.” He said as he shook her hand. “You can call me Max.”

“Is there anything I can do to help?”

“Is there anything I can do to help?”


“I guess” was all she could really say in response to his answer of being brilliant. She saw it very differently, but to each their own she guessed. She loved sports, loved her job, but lately both were becoming more and more tiring. She finished off her coffee and placed it on the table. Her brown eyes scanning the empty area. Now that the Chizpufles seemed to be taken care of things could hopefully get back to normal in some ways.

Shaking her head she wasn’t going to take an apology, “No need to apologize. You are allowed your opinion. I’m just being a bit edgy with all of it I guess.” She needed to calm down and she knew it, but her annoyance was high and her tolerance low. “It is very nice to meet you Max and please Victoria.” She wasn’t a fan of her last name as of lately. “and you did not upset me so please don’t think you did. Maybe I could buy you another coffee and make my rudeness up.” She gave him a little smile. She could use a refill herself.

A small chuckled was released at his question, “Well unless you can catch this wacko and bring back quidditch at Hogwarts so scouts and managers would stop asking so many questions, or so they stop being irritated by the up security all pro teams have to go through because of this, especially my ex-husband’s wife who is one of those managers that are being the worst.” She grinned knowing he couldn’t, “I’d have to say no at this time, but thank you for the offer.”

Enough about all of this though, “Architect, now that sounds like an interesting job. How is your level a mess like the rest of the ministry I presume?” All of the ministry was a wreck it wasn’t really a question now that she thought about it.

She was still in a good mood come lunch time, and with the promise of a full stomach and delicious sugars, it could only get better. Right? Right? Well this Department Head thought so. She hadn't thought to check on Gavin, nor had she thought to drag Vic along with her. A little peace and quiet on a busy first day seemed only logical.

After grabbing herself a chicken and salad sandwich,an apple pie, and double-shot coffee to boot, Emily took her tray to the main seating area, trying her hardest to ignore the still ridiculous multi-coloured chairs. What was wrong with black? Or grey? Did Cresswell know how tacky these looked? Did he? In the end, she claimed a blue chair, it seemed - to her - to be the most responsible looking of the lot.

So far work was pretty great. Tancred couldn't complain too much about going to an orientation meeting and getting to know the employees on his level. Plus his old pal Willy was even in the same division as him, which really was no surprise. Dragons were awesome. But dragons were not currently on the dragon commissioner's mind. Oh no. It was time to check out the food court in the Atrium. He had a rumbling stomach to satisfy.

But, Merlin, the cafeteria was colourful! Now what colour chair was he going to sit in? As if choosing his lunch hadn't been enough serious decision-making for the first day on the job.

With a grilled chicken wrap, a piece of cheese cake, and a cup of coffee on his tray, Tancred made his way through the seating area. Where was Willy? He didn't want to eat his lunch all alone. Fortunately there was a lone brunette that looked like she needed some company. "Excuse me, miss," the man said, pointing at the yellow chair at her table with his free hand. "Mind if I join you?"

It was unusually quiet in here today, which didn't come as too great a surprise to her, had she not put in over-time hours this morning she wouldn't have been able to justify coming down for lunch. And people, were no doubt busy catching up and procrastinating at their desks with discussions of holidays and the like. How drab. It just wasn't for her to socialise.

She made short work of the first half of her sandwich, the triangle of deliciousness no match for her appetite. Washing it down with a generous swig of coffee, Emily's hazel eyes followed a man as he neared her table. There were plenty of seats elsewhere. Did he need something?

The strangers question registered with her, though she took a brief moment to contemplate a response. She didn't know what to make of the fact that he was willing to sit in a yellow chair. Yellow was simply rancid... something she'd been trying to explain to Avery for some time. It was the colour of weakness, and it was too bright and cheerful to be legal.

"Not at all," she replied but a second after he asked. He was welcome to it, who was she to stop him? Public space and all. And.... was that cheesecake on his tray? " But I'm afraid there's a toll if you sit there... a bite of your cheesecake is my price," she gestured to it. Sweets were her weakness, one she wasn't ashamed to admit. It would after all be rude to eat it in front of her, and she wasn't above helping herself to peoples foods without their express permission.

For a food court, it was awfully quiet. Where was everyone? The lack of socialising in the room was a bit of a downer, but at least it drastically narrowed the options of who he could eat his lunch with. And the brunette sitting all by her lonesome was the lucky winner today. He was welcome to sit with her ... if she could have a bite of his cheesecake.

"Sure thing," Tancred said, setting his tray down on the table and sitting down in the yellow chair. He was willing to sacrifice a piece of his cheesecake. After being a husband and a father for so long, he was used to sharing his food. Sharing was caring.

Before his stomach decided to rumble loudly on him like it did in the lift, Tancred look a bite of his crispy chicken wrap, savoured the taste, and swallowed. Mmm. So good. "Whenever you want a bite, go for it," the man chuckled, pushing the plate of cheesecake closer to her. He took another bite of his wrap. "I'm Tancred Adara, by the way. New dragon commissioner in the Creatures department."

And the brunette sitting all by her lonesome was the lucky winner today. He was welcome to sit with her ... if she could have a bite of his cheesecake.

"Sure thing," Tancred said, setting his tray down on the table and sitting down in the yellow chair. He was willing to sacrifice a piece of his cheesecake. After being a husband and a father for so long, he was used to sharing his food. Sharing was caring.

Before his stomach decided to rumble loudly on him like it did in the lift, Tancred look a bite of his crispy chicken wrap, savoured the taste, and swallowed. Mmm. So good. "Whenever you want a bite, go for it," the man chuckled, pushing the plate of cheesecake closer to her. He took another bite of his wrap. "I'm Tancred Adara, by the way. New dragon commissioner in the Creatures department."


Impressive, was the word that came to mind. The resounding sure thing had him ticking her boxes. He was welcome to sit - even if it was in a yellow chair, yes, and she was welcome to cheesecake... it was a beautiful thing. Best deal she'd brokered that day. "Brilliant," was her reply.

Emily continued to observe the man, between bites of her own sandwich. He was attractive, and probably knew it, but he didn't seem at all narcissistic, which was a bonus... she had enough of that in her life. He just seemed... normal. "Oh I promise I won't hold back," she mused, smirking at the plate being pushed her way. Today was full of win, though she wasn't about to jinx it by saying so out loud. As it was, dessert couldn't be had between mouthfuls of savouries, it would only ruin the aftertaste, so no, she'd bide her time and finish her main meal first.

The introduction was standard practice, one that she would have forgotten had he not initiated it, and it didn't escape her attention that he was one of them dragonologist people. Her favourites. But she refrained from passing comment. "Ahh, pleasure... Emily Browne, Department Head of Magical Law Enforcement," she rattled off, seeing as he started with the fancy titles first. She'd have been perfectly fine with being Emily, just Emily.

Tancred felt the woman's eyes on him as he ate his wrap. Although it was a little uncomfortable, he was not going to blame her. What else was there to look at? One could only look at so many empty coloured chairs in the room before getting bored. So he looked back as he chewed with his mouth closed, giving her a friendly smile. Two could play that game.

Promise to not hold back? Her words made him laugh quietly for a moment. Chloe or one of the twins would have said the same. But he knew that they would have eating the whole piece of cheesecake. "Just don't eat it all when you get to it," Tancred teased. He paused to take a sip of coffee and then added, "My kids would have gobbled the whole thing. They know cheesecake is one of my favourites."

When the woman told him who she was, he nodded his head. He was familiar with that name. "Nice to meet you, Emily," he responded. So this was the department head for Law Enforcement, then? She really was as young as they said. "I've read about you in the papers. It's nice to match finally a name to a face."

It amused her that he was returning the gesture, and indulging her with the staring game ... more or less. Though, she was blinking, even if not as often as most people usually would. Emily found herself returning the smile, chalk it down to the fact that she had food and her spontaneous company wasn't intolerable. She finished her crust, and afforded her thumb a lick so as not to waste the mayonnaise that had settled there.

Don't eat it all? Well now was that a challenge? She'd have thought so, and would have been happy enough doing so, but she still had an apple pie to consume and if she was lucky enough, a treat later. "Mine too," she confessed, "Though I don't discriminate, anything sweet has my approval..." but onto more interesting things. Kids. Not that they were interesting, but he didn't seem a great deal older than her. "You have many? Kids?" she asked curiously. Had this conversation happened over a year ago she'd have cared less, but these things were fast becoming a common topic of conversation.

"Likewise." Because thus far she was not regretting letting him sit here, and while she was at it, there was cheesecake to be had. Taking up her fork, she pulled the plate a little closer before spearing the end and raising it to her lips. It didn't get all the way to her mouth before he went and said that. The papers? .... "With all due respect, I don't care much for the media... they thrive on tragedy, controversy and their sole role is not to inform the community of news that is relevant to them, but to misinform them by feeding them propaganda against the very institutions which support their trade." Needless to say, she didn't want to know what it was that Tancred had read, it was probably a croc of a story anyway. Still, mentions of the Daily Prophet or other publications wasn't about to ruin her perfectly good day, and so with an appreciative smile, she popped the cheesecake in her mouth, relishing the creaminess.

Pem was enjoying her lunch of fresh salad and veggies as she people watched the employees of the Ministry as they moved around the cafeteria. There were so many people to watch the young employee didn't know where to look first.

Her first day had started off a little rocky. She had been unsure of what to do when she arrived and had awkwardly hung out in the reception area of her level until she had been greeted by an overly enthusiastic employee followed by Alex who made her feel more at ease.

That was nothing that a nice plate full of vegetables couldn't solve. She had to get over her awkwardness somehow. Sometimes having such a quiet voice was difficult.

It had been a good first day so far! All they had done up on level one so far was have a small party, and Esp had enjoyed mingling with her coworkers. Most of them seemed nice, if a little awkward: not everyone was good with meeting new people, she reasoned.

But now it was time to eat. It might be difficult finding a spot to eat, but maybe she would spy one of her new coworkers or acquaintances. Grabbing a sandwich, she scanned the room and-oh! There was Pem, sitting alone! Esper walked over to her friend and set her tray down, popping into the seat across from her.

"Hi, Pem! Can I sit here?" she asked, mostly as a matter of politeness, as she was already quite comfortable in the seat. "I'm so excited that we're both working here!" Her friend was a sweetheart, AND their cats were basically siblings.

Still, mentions of the Daily Prophet or other publications wasn't about to ruin her perfectly good day, and so with an appreciative smile, she popped the cheesecake in her mouth, relishing the creaminess.
A few bites later, his wrap was gone. He drank some coffee to wash it down, quite satisfied with the main portion of his meal. Now it was time to dig in to that slice of cheesecake he had bought. But he was going to be a gentleman and let Emily take the promised portion of cheesecake. Ladies first.

He nodded when she said that anything sweet had her stamp of approval. Tancred agreed with that one hundred percent, though he wasn't a big fan of acid pops that his boys raved about. Speaking of them, the conversation topic changed to children. "I have three, a girl and a set of twin boys. Third and second years at Hogwarts." And not a single one of them was in Hufflepuff. He was still shocked by that. "Yourself?"

Watching as she made her move for the cheesecake, he noticed her pause after mentioning the papers. Was that a touchy subject? If it meant anything, he never said that he believed everything he read. "Very true, which is why remembering that there are multiple sides to every story is important." With that said, Tancred reached for his plate of cheesecake now that Emily took a forkful. From her reaction, it looked like he made an excellent choice for dessert.

As fond as she was of apple pie, she was beginning to think she may have made the wrong decision where desserts were concerned for today. But she was in far too good a mood to make anything negative of it, no, she would have her apple pie... and then go back for cheesecake later. Win win.

Pulling her own dessert close, she speared the edge with her fork, cutting down the crust and scooping the mouthful to her lips. Three? Did he just say ... three? "Wow..." twin boys too... that would have been work. Good for him, he lived to tell the tale. And then the question was directed back to her. "One.. a boy, he's ten and six months... or so he keeps saying." He was at that age, eager for his letter and all. She was about to take another stab her her pie, but she nudged the place forward a bit. "Wanna try?" It was only fair, she'd tried his, and as much as she usually disliked sharing, she was feeling generous today.

It was good to know this one had some sense in his pretty little head. "Exactly that, and as objective as they often make themselves out to be.. well..." it went without saying what she thought. That much was evident.

Caroline was enjoying a nice quiet lunch break away from the healer station. It was just nice to get out of her department. Eat some food that wasn't leftovers from the dinner before. Meet some adults. Most the time she was tending to the kids at the daycare.

The kids were running full throttle today. Bruises was the big problem today. Kids will be kids right? She had the rare paper cut or stapled hand. Yeah not pretty.


But the healer didn't get to come over to the food court much. If ever. So today she decided that's she could slip away long enough to enjoy herself. This was nice but it would be nice to have someone to talk too.

Lunch time, Victoria decided to head to the food court to grab a bite to eat. Taking a few papers with her she figured she could do a bit of work while eating. She wasn't one for down time, thinking about other things than work wasn't always in the best interest of the thirty five year old.

After grabbing some food, she looked around at the busy seating area. Why did she come here again? Moving to a place where she thought she saw an empty table, Vic noticed someone sitting. "Mind if I sit here? I promise I won't interrupt your quiet lunch." She wasn't sure which department the lady worked in, so she didn't know if she was trying to have some peace while eating.

Oh, Merlin, yes. Purchasing this cheesecake had been a great decision. It was perfect in every way that cheesecake could be. How Emily managed to just take one bite of it was a mystery to him. Then again, she did have a piece of apple pie of her own. It sure wasn't cheesecake, but it was a delicious dessert nonetheless.

As he cut himself another forkful of cheesecake, Tancred could not help but smile at Emily's reaction to him having three kids, two if which being twins. It certainly was a great feat that he hadn't gone mad, especially with a bold female Lion and a conniving Eagle and Snake duo. He popped his fork into his mouth when she started talking about her boy. "I bet he's just raving about getting his letter, yeah?" He could remember how excited his kids had been at that age.

She then nudged her plate toward him, offering a bite of her apple pie. The man gave her a look, figuring out whether Emily was serious or not. She didn't really seem like the sharing type. But maybe she had a soft spot for newbies at the Ministry. "Well, since you're offering," he said, reaching over with his fork. "Thanks."

In regards to her latest comment about the media, Tancred simply nodded his head and put the pie in his mouth. Mmm. Pie.

The thing she most liked about her apple pie over his cheesecake, was the cinnamon. She loved cinnamon, and the apple pie had the lovely warm spice mixed throughout.

Emily chuckled lightly, flicking a tendril of hair over her shoulder as she leaned forward in her seat. "You're not wrong there. He checks the post twice a day, and peppers me with questions about Hogwarts the rest of the time." If he asked her one more time which House he would be in, she was going to lock him in a cupboard. "I'm thinking of letting him buy his wand soon, if only to shut him up for a while." Not that he'd be able to use it, but it would answer one of his million questions.

He seemed a little hesitant in accepting her offering, which was fine, and if she was being honest with herself, she wouldn't much mind if he declined... but then he didn't. "You're welcome, but do me a favour... if anyone asks, this never happened." She had an image to uphold, and she rather liked the sound of Ice Queen.

That bite of apple pie was delicious. The cinnamon in it gave it a bit of a kick, too. Clearly the Ministry food court was the place to go for dessert. It was going to be hard to resist buying dessert here every weekday. He'd be hitting up the gym more than he needed to if he kept this up.

Going back to finish off his cheesecake, he couldn't help put chuckle and roll his eyes at what Emily said about her child. The hope that the Hogwarts letter would come early ... the never-ending series of questions ... the boy sounded like the average kid to him. "It could work," Tancred stated, pausing for a moment before dropping some words of wisdom from one parent to another. "I wouldn't count on the silence lasting very long, though. Once they get what they want, kids tend to move on to the next thing rather quickly." And that was Parent Tip #1 from Tancred Adara.

He raised an eyebrow at the favour she asked of him. The whole sharing of desserts was never to be shared with a single soul? Sounded like someone wanted to put on the façade of being a big, scary department head. "Don't worry. Your secret is safe with me."

Once they get what they want, kids tend to move on to the next thing rather quickly." And that was Parent Tip #1 from Tancred Adara.

He raised an eyebrow at the favour she asked of him. The whole sharing of desserts was never to be shared with a single soul? Sounded like someone wanted to put on the façade of being a big, scary department head. "Don't worry. Your secret is safe with me."


There was no doubt in her mind that if she didn't burn so much energy each day, she would surely be quite fat. Fat, and happy... because sugar did that to people, made them happy in ways that other things couldn't. Alas, she rather liked her body the way it was, perfectly functioning, fit and lean. It meant she could justify indulging more frequently, and there was no need for guilt.

And see this is what has become of her life now. Great mother of Circe, how? ... She was listening carefully to Tancred's input or... advice, with regard to the whole parenting thing. She was still too new at it to really know what she was doing. Frankly, she didn't have a clue. "So then... what would do you recommend? Surely there's something that might placate him..." how hard could it be? Then again, all she had to do was think of Ashley and Avery and their list making in order to get a picture of the worst case scenario. Avery was the worst, by far, and there was no way she was going to let Zeke indulge in the same habits. "... It does get much harder, right? This parenting thing?" She had to ask, it was a burning question, and nobody she'd spoken to thus far had been able to give her a response she had the patience to sit through.

Abandoning her pie, Emily timed her sip of coffee precisely so that she could hide her smile into her cup. There would be no more of that. By the time she set it down again, she managed to state quite simply, "Excellent."

After grabbing some food, she looked around at the busy seating area. Why did she come here again? Moving to a place where she thought she saw an empty table, Vic noticed someone sitting. "Mind if I sit here? I promise I won't interrupt your quiet lunch." She wasn't sure which department the lady worked in, so she didn't know if she was trying to have some peace while eating.
Caroline was taking it easy munching on her lunch. Yes. This was so much better than leftovers. Which would have been cold pizza. She flipped through todays Daily Prophet. Not really read in it but just looking to see what was new.

When she heard a voice near by she looked up. "Oh no, not at all." She answered her with a small smile. At this point her lunch break was starting to get too quiet. Yeah that she didn't think that was possible.
