Default Fountain of Magical Brethren

Halfway into the Atrium, gleaming in all its golden glory is the Fountain of Magical Brethren. The large fountain depicts golden figures of a wizard, witch, centaur, goblin, and a house-elf with jets of water spouting out into the fountain below. The focal point of the fountain are the witch and wizard, the other beings looking up at the pair with adoration. Gaze at the lovely fountain as you make your way to the other various locations within the Ministry.

Peacock blue ceiling with golden symbols moving over it, and polished dark wood floors, the Atrium serves to welcome all visitors to the British Ministry of Magic and is the place all Ministry workers must pass through to get to their respectable departments. If you look closely at the windows overlooking the atrium, you may catch a glimpse of Ministry employees, namely security, observing all those who pass through the atrium.

Not far from the Fountain of Magical Brethren is a small stand that serves coffee and a danishes to workers too busy to stop and have a proper meal. The large room is incessantly full of busy employees, but only a few ever care to stop and chat you up; our wonderful Welcome Wizard who is there to assist the public, and the security workers watching out for the leery. You should hope to only ever be stopped by the former, else you may find yourself taking an unexpected trip to the security office.

No, the fountain had not been turned off.

The muffled sound of pipes creaking came from the fountain’s foundation. Water pressure was building inside the statues, a low groan emanating in the pipes. Just before the pipes could burst, whatever had caused the temporary water outage, vanished. The built-up water exploded from the fountain spraying everyone in a 20-foot radius. The water from the witch and wizard's wands gushed with the force and range of a muggle fire sprinkler system. The spray from the centaur’s arrow hit the Minster for Magic in the face, while one of the house elf’s ears squirted the Environmental Ranger (Katrina) in the back of the head.

Lucy could hear a strange creaking sound, followed by a groan. The young woman peered at the fountain when all of a sudden a vast amount of water hit her, making her clothes cling to her body and leaving her red hair looking rather bedraggled.

Perhaps it was wise to pay a visit to the healer, to have themselves checked, but Kat simply wasn't in the right state of mind for explaining how her day went to anyone. Not yet, at least, because she felt it would be necessary to keep remove baggage off her shoulders. All she really wanted, at the moment, was cuddles from her husband and her kids and her best friend. Sounded like an excellent plan.

Kat was set on ignoring the fountain, already deciding that it was maintenance duty, when a jet of water hit the back of her head. "Ow," the blond said as her hand impulsively went to touch where she had been struck.

Glares. All the glares at the fountain. "Should tell the maintenance that this isn't funny, minister." Wasn't Minister Hollingberry getting all the bad luck today?

This was ludicrous.

The moment his dismissal of everyone left his lips - trying to disperse the atrium and get the growing crowd of rubberneckers on their merry ways - was the Minister greeted with a face full of water. First paper, now water. He could do without his face making contact with the remaining elements.

And now it looked like it would be more than DERP needed to be examined by the healers from St. Mungo's.

Certainly not anticipating this and therefore entirely defenseless, taking the full force of the water with his face knocked Charles right over like one of those dolls at a carnival that you shoot with a water gun. Not just that, but the pressure from the water even managed to push the Minister across the floor a few additional inches like he was some wet rag.

No, certainly not funny and certainly not his day.

Benzi popped back into the atrium as yet another day of going door to door in the North yielded exactly zero results. His merry men were proving very elusive, yet very confident. Not his favourite of combinations among criminals. The three victims currently being treated at Mungo's were a clear indication that he needed to close his case soon. Besides, he'd really like to put this case to rest and get back to his Northern Ireland situation-

Uh. Speaking of situations??

"Minister??" the auror rushed to the fallen man, noting the faulty fountain and also the gathering of people around it. What had happened here? As he ran, Benzi reached into his pocket and pulled out on of the several small stones he always kept on hand, tossed in the air and transfigured it into an umbrella which he enlarged several times until its radius was larger than his own height.

Setting the oversized umbrella protectively over the minister's frame, he crouched down. "Minister Hollingberry, sir, can you sit up?"

Lunch. Lunch and maybe some quality time with his special someone before they had to dash off again. That's all the almost auror had been after. But it seemed like the fountain had other plans, because of course. Luckily, he'd noticed the stream of water out the corner of his eye and was able to block it from hitting him with some quick wand work. Unfortunately, it looked like some weren't as lucky (or didn't have auror senses).

For what was probably the first time ever, Ronan contemplated getting the heck out of dodge before he could be spotted. Had his hand on the door to the phone booth, even. But whatever it was in him that had caused him to get sorted into Gryffindor also caused him to turn right back around and join the crowd, impervius charm cast overhead. "Impressive." he remarked quietly, an eyebrow raised. By which he meant that it was impressive that someone had managed to tamper with the fountain with all kinds of security people et al. around. "Wonder if it's related to all the other odd things that have been going on around here lately?" Had to be, right?

It didn’t take long for the room to stop spinning. He had placed his arms protectively around her as they spun and as the room stopped, he gave her a little squeeze. ”Done,” he said simply. Then taking her hand, he had led her towards the room straight ahead.

A few turns and a lift ride later, Adam had led Zita up to the Atrium where the coffee cart was. He might have forgotten his cane, but he had not forgotten his wallet. Still holding her hand with his right and the bag of goodies she had brought him in his left, he paused in the entrance to the Atrium. ”Um,” he turned towards Zita, blue eyes staring a little too high on her face. ” Das coffee cart should be near das fountain. Do you mind leading?” He gestured to the room with the bag of sweets.

Heading his master's instructions, Waful managed to squeeze himself into the red human box alongside a very confused someone who tried swatting at him with her handbag until the owl was able to fly out of the box and into wider spaces.

Zipping, loopty looping, and screeching, Waful did everything he could to draw attention to himself. The snowy owl was no Rough Collie dog, but he would do given the circumstances.

Kendra was fairly sure she had fixed the atmosphere charm that had somehow gone wrong in her office, the evidence of softly fallen snow on her shoulders and in her hair beginning to melt. It was starting to seem a little strange, these mild charms mishaps here and there lately, but she supposed that happened time and again. It was just a little more than annoying, but thankfully she had such a strong charms background that she could take care of certain things herself should the need arise.

But once she had her office sorted, the Transportation department head needed a minute to herself. It took a hot minute to get the weather regulated again and she thought it a good idea to take a walk to clear her head. Though the noise emanating from the atrium did little to calm her nerves.

Turning her head towards the cacophony, Kendra placed her hands on her hips as she eyed up the snowy owl. An owl flying through the Ministry wasn't such a surprising sight to her, but his outburst seemed out of place. Who was he delivering a message to? Was he lost? "Well, what is it?" she asked of him as if expecting an answer.

Waful was going to begin dive bombing heads and snatching off toupees if he did not receive the attention he needed. Thankfully for all the toupees of the Ministry, a woman appeared - though the snowy owl was not accustomed to her tones and therefore could not fully understand her. What the owl did know was that his master needed help...and from more than just one woman.

So, in what would go down in history as the first performance of owl charades at the Ministry of Magic, Waful gave his most valiant attempt at relaying the situation to the woman.

First, naturally, came a swooped down to her robes (and hair) and then tugged aggressively to portray his need for her to come with. But then the snowy owl also swooped around the Atrium and grabbed at random people to try and convey that there was a need for many. Swooping back towards the woman, his beak tugged on her left sleeve - assuming it was also her wand hand as it was his master's - and then performed several figure eights in the air before her in rabid succession one beside the other.

Figure eight...eight legs...acromantulas...it was all very obvious to the owl.
