Default Staff Work Area


The sleek, professional, and possibly slight presumptuous appearance of the Daily Prophet fades as you enter the spacious work area. Not even the hustle and bustle of the staff can take away from the airiness of the large work area. The windows aren't real, though instead of being charmed to have pleasant views, they are charmed to show different locations of the wizarding world in real time, should anything news worthy happen unexpectedly.

Clusters of desks are scattered about the place in an organized fashion, grouped by sections of the prophet, and easily distinguished by the stacks of paper work atop the large desks. The editors have their own cluster of desks off near a large table that's used as extra workspace, or for when an impromptu gathering that doesn't require the conference room is needed.

Amongst a few framed articles, and moving pictures of photos from past assignments, is a large bulletin board for all important, and trivial, announcements. An eclectic clutter of old and new, scraps of paper, post it notes, and index cards push-pinned in, you can find anything from notices to the Prophet staff, birthdays, promotions, absences, story tips, employee of the month, and even silly notes and doodles. Of course there's coffee in the corner as well, though not as good as the stuff in the break room, it's there to keep you trucking through the long hours.

Ellura wandered into the work area with a mug of coffee liberated from the break room. Why was the better stuff kept where you didn't need it as much? For the late nights and early mornings and every time in between when one was working not breaking. For the young woman, it currently was one of those times. Early October and she was busy keeping her nose to the grindstone and her eyes and ears open for a story. A couple of leads hadn't panned out in her fieldwork which had led her to return to the comforts of her desk to regroup.

Setting her mug down on a scrap of parchment, she settled down in her chair with sigh. The steam escaping as she leaned back and absently fiddled with a quill trying to think.

Deesey was wearing her bestest dress today. Her dress, a torn bit of a turquoise petal tablecloth, swayed as she bustled about. Rather than manning the reception desk, Deesey decided to wander about the work area. But Deesey wasn't walking around empty-handed. No, Deesey was carrying in her tiny elf hands a large box of doughnuts.

"Hello, Missus," Deesey squeaked when she arrived beside Ellura's desk. The old elf then pried the box open, revealing all the colourful options. "Would Missus care for one of Deesey's doughnuts? Dessey made sure there is a lot of different ones to choose from."

“Hmm…?”

She must have zoned out only to be brought back down to earth by the squeaky voice of the elf office manager. Oh, she had treats…sugary treats. “I think I might just like one,” Ellura remarked, straightening up to look the open box over. Maybe a sugar rush with her coffee would help the brain to work and the ideas flow. “Like this one,” she added, picking up what looked like a blueberry crumb donut.

“Thank you Deesey.” One bite was all that was needed to confirm the flavor and it sure was yummy.

"Don't mind if I do," Reed said, taking a simple sugar-glazed doughnut for himself from the elves' box of treats. The twenty-five year old decided to grace the staff work area with his presence after being out on the field earlier. "Thank you, Deesey." She received a wink from Reed.

He could use some sugary goodness too, along with a warm cup of tea which he will make for himself later on once he's settled in his desk. Taking a bite, Reed nodded as he savoured the doughnut. "Fantastic. Did you make these?" He asked the house elf.

Oh, and... "Hello, Ellura," he politely nodded at his new colleague. "Anything interesting?"

A big grin appeared on Deesey's face when Ellura took one of her doughnuts. Even better, the woman had taken a bite and seemed to be enjoying it. "You is welcome, Missus!"

Then, unexpectedly, a hand reached into the box. For a moment, Deesey was about to pull the box away. Deesey believed very much in everyone having good manners. When she took in the sight of Reed, however, the elf decided to not cause a fuss. The doughnuts were for them and he did say thank you, after all.

"You is welcome, Mas - Mister," Deesey cheerfully replied. "And, yes, Mister, Deesey made these all herself. A special treat Deesey made for the hard workers at the paper."

Hector was having a good day so far! The last interview he'd conducted turned out to be more eventful than he was expecting. What seemed like an offhanded comment at the time now clicked in his brain and inspired him to do some further digging. Now deep down the rabbit hole of leads, he was more convinced than ever that his hunch was correct - and if it was, this story would make his career!

He'd just come back from sending an owl to an informant who lived outside the country; he even grabbed himself a hot chocolate while he was out - because let's face it, Hector wasn't much a coffee drinker. Never had been. Fueled by the pursuit of knowledge and the prospect of recognition, Hector was too focused on his story to look where he was going and stopped just short of crashing into Deezy. "Oh, my-! I'm sorry, Deezy!" he exclaimed, taking an automatic step back to give the elf some space, and...

THUMP! He backed into Ellura's desk. "Sorry, sorry, sorry!" he said over and over. Nice going, Hector! he inwardly berated himself. Somehow in his blunder, he'd managed to hold on to his hot chocolate. Thank Merlin! The last thing he needed was a mess to clean up! "Good thing the lid was on this, huh?" he said sheepishly, running his free hand through his hair. Shut up, Hector! You're just making a bigger fool of yourself!

Oh, Reed was here too? Did everybody show up in time to see that? Well, this was embarrassing! "Um.... Hello, everyone," Hector greeted, his eyes darting around the room in search of a distraction from his clumsiness. Then he saw Deezy's box of doughnuts, and he smiled as he overheard her tell Reed she made them herself. "These look great!" he said to the elf. "You wouldn't happen to have a jelly-filled one, would you?"

A delicious treat AND the house elf seemed to be quite pleased with her acceptance of the donut. And maybe the enjoyment that Ellura realized might just be written on her face. A win -win in her book. She might have said something more to the elf when another human presence made itself, himself, known in the midst, seemingly drawn by the offer of yummy baked goods.

Reed.

“Hey,” she greeted back before giving a one-armed shrug. “Nothing over th----”

Ellura quickly grabbed for her mug when her desk was shaken, trying to keep it from spilling. Especially over any paperwork that happened to be lingering on the desktop. She looked up at the apologetic response to find Hector with a cup pf his own. “Yeah…lucky.” Else the good mood that one house elf had brought into the staff room would have likely been compromised.

Look at that. Wasn't Deesey adorable? T'was a shame Reed stole the doughnut fast enough. It was a great doughnut though. Kudos to the little elf. "You're adorable," He pointed out, waving his half-eaten doughnut around. "I am honoured. Should save some for Jorge, though. Boss man could use a nice snack." He wasn't going through a midlife crisis yet, was he?

And yes, Reed saw that, Hector. He really was...clumsy, wasn't he? Reed mouthed an 'oops' at his older colleague. "Hey, Hector," the twenty-five year old said. "I won't tell anyone." He added, tapping his nose. Not like he spilled Ellura's coffee all over her paper work. Now, that would have been a big mess.

Back to Ellura, who wasn't able to finish her sentence. Thanks, Hector. "Sorry, come again?" Another bite off his doughnut. How many more doughnuts could he take, hmm? Has everyone taken their share already?

Right…she had been cut off by the pinball employee and the near-spilling of both drinks. Reed kindly asking her to finish her thought since it had been the two of them chatting, Not that it was really a big important deal. No earth-shattering revelation was going to be revealed

“Just saying that I hadn’t found anything worth capturing.” Ellura wanted to hit the ground running with her article, prove her hiring for the well-known paper wasn’t a waste of the Prophet’s time and money. So she was trying to find the best thing she could work on.
