Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

She never thought she'd see the day where she was the earliest to one of these meetings and yet....here she was....swiveling around in her chair with a cup of coffee in hand while she waited for the rest to trickle in. It was strange. All of this was strange. Having her own office--THE office--was strange but admittedly that chocolate fountain was helping her adjust.

It was the not so little things.

Lex kept looking over at the clock, her mind still in the mode of a Head Auror who did not at all want to be in a meeting.

It would take some time to get into Department Head mode and accept that this meeting, much like any other she called, served a purpose and needed to happen. Until then, she swiveled away restlessly in her chair at the top of the table--yet another thing she'd have to get used to. It was so much easier, especially in recent terms with the Department Heads they'd had, to sit somewhere off near the door for a speedy exit once she was sure she was done wasting her time in here.

This would...all be an adjustment.

Another year…another start of year meeting.

Simon was quite used to the whole schedule, with the catching up of coworkers and cases. Even though technically MLE wasn’t exactly a department that completely shut down for the break. Dark wizards and trouble, both in the Ministry and without it, didn’t exactly work on schedules like that. So the security head and be in and out, early this morning especially to make sure the wand weighers were all set for the influx of new ministry employees ready to bound through the various security measures.

So as he slipped into the conference room, it wasn’t a surprise that he was one of the first ones there for the meeting. Alexa the obvious choice for his early companion, taking on her role as new department head seriously. Time would only tell how the younger woman adjusted to the task.“Morning…” Simon greeted simply as he moved to take a seat at the table, a notebook set before him for notes and reports as he sat down.

Arriving a bit earlier at the conference room, Kevin did not enter immediately but stopped to catch his breath first. After making sure that he didn't look like he had jogged here, he entered.

"Morning" he greeted with a nod of his head before he found a place to sit at the table. He wished he had bought a cup of coffee at the entrance.

Cup of coffee already in hand and sheets of parchment tucked under his arm, Jake entered the conference room in what seemed to be an inordinately good mood, given the context of the situation. Morning meetings (or really meetings in general) (or mornings in general, for that matter) and good moods didn't really go together, but Jake was feeling particularly buoyant all the same. Today would be a productive day; he could feel it. Even the ever-present piles of paperwork on his desk had not yet managed to sour his optimism for the day ahead, though he supposed there was still time for all that.

"Morning all," Uhh... all three of them. Jake smiled as he took his seat, then nodded across to Alexa. He had been thrilled for her ever since he'd found out about her Department-Headship, and was eager to see what kind of job she would do, and he didn't doubt the department would flourish behind her leadership. After taking a sip of coffee, Jake set his cup down, then placed the parchment on the table in front of him in a neat pile. Reports, updates, blank sheafs for potential note-taking, he was plenty organised today.

First meeting! Her very first in her new job! Amidala fancied attending meetings of these sort, well at her previous job at least. One thing felt certain, the way things roll here was to be far different than in the States. But either way the confident red head believed she was going to learn fast and get the hang of the rhythm here. Knowledge is power and so was she! Amidala quietly walked in professionally acknowledging the faces already present in the room with a nod and direct eye contact, followed by finding a seat and setting down her scorching hot cup of coffee (cold coffee tasted disgusting) on the table and her brown leather satchel by her side. Amidala wore her confidence like an armor; however internally she was feeling small tingles of anxiety from this new environment but worry not! In her mind she recited her observations within the walls of the room to keep herself centered and alert at the same time.

Emilia didn't particularly like sitting still, especially these days, but she supposed work meetings were a part of adult life and that's what she was now. ...What she was trying to be...

...Hopefully it wasn't a long meeting.

"Hello," She said politely, slipping into the room and moving to take a seat. She offered a small smile to those already in attendance, trying to get a feel for the crowd she'd be working with. She couldn't help but notice how young the department head was and that, among other things, piqued her curiosity. She was interested to see what the woman had to say.

Creed made his way into the conference space. Awake and carrying a cup of decaffeinated tea, no sugar, but a splash of honey. In bed by 8pm and awake by 4am to make a 5am Spinning Class was all the taller than average imposing bald headed gentlemen in full suit and tie needed. Of course the 70 year-old man didn't want to seem too intimidating. His Tie was a nice Solid Navy Blue so he could seem more inviting.

He smiled toward the growing crowd of new co-workers. The department seemed very young. Creed would have his work cut out for him. Thank Merlin for that spinning class. Of course there was the issue of his Department Head spinning in her seat such as she was. How could anyone take this girl seriously was beyond him. Yet she hired him so he was grateful. He would prove that he could be the foundation this young department could use to build from with his years of experience in MACUSA's MLE.

Perhaps coming out of retirement was truly the best decision to make.

He took his seat at the one side of the Department head and gave her a court nod then turned to his co-workers. "Good morning." He addressed them all and to any who were still filing into the conference room.

Another year, yet another department head. Although at least this year Bryony knew she wouldn’t have to worry about if the new head knew her name, or how they were going to be as her boss. She knew Alexa quite well after the past several years, and that they worked together at least reasonably well. Honestly, she was excited to find out how the department was going to be run with her as the lead, and there was the unsurprising curiosity as to who, if anyone, was taking the former head Auror’s position, not that she expected it in the least. She figured she had a few more years at least before that was a possibility.

Cup of coffee in hand, the other fidgeting with the ring on her finger that she’d thought about taking off for professional purposes, or maybe just out of the awkwardness of not wanting to take away her older brother’s moment. Had she expected any of it to have all happened at once, she’d have felt less like it was so very obvious. Odds were her coworkers would notice, anyhow. That was what they did, notice things that others might not. At the very least, she could act professional. “Good morning everyone,” she greeted the room-at-large before taking a sip of her coffee, taking a seat at the table that was as close to the doors as possible. Constant vigilance. Anything could happen.

Ava was... nervous. She had to leave in the middle of her last year due to personal reasons and was quite hopeless to be back again. But after having some pep talk with her family, Noelle and also her psychiatrist, the 21 year-old decided to be back. After all she still wanted to be an auror and it would be nice if she had another choice to continue her YATI year (or whatever the department head would say about it).

Taking a very deep breath, she arrived at the department. Goodness, this was really nerve-wracking. What would her fellow co-worker think about her presence here? ASDFGHJKL!!! Breathe, Ava. Everything is going to be okay. Just hopefully nobody would make some kind of negative comments after what she had been through because now she's currently recovering from her mental health problems, okay. "Good morning, everyone.. Department head." Giving a small greeting and the nod, the former Gryffindor then joined the others.

The young Auror-in-training was less eager to see how Alexa would run the department after reading one thing in particular. As most training is done at a separate institution, YATI do not have offices or their own desks. In other words, they were expected to come to meetings, functions, etc. and just in general act like members of the department, yet when in office, they were not allowed the basics afforded to the other members of the department, such as desks. This may have been a rule at one time, but no one had bothered to inform him on the matter. Nor had it been in the literature (he'd checked. Over and over.) or was it standard practice in all ministries. So the sudden appearance now was enough to stick in the twenty-one-year-old's craw.

So, it was with a rather neutral, thought hiding, expression on his face that Ronan entered the conference room, coffee in hand, and plopped down in the first available seat. Everyone present got a cordial nod. It was all he could manage without letting out his irritation.

He knew that those in Auror training were only part-time, but come on!

Benzi couldn't lie, he was a tad more excited for this meeting than he'd been for another other in the past few years. For one, he knew this one would be as short as humanly possible, and that was because Cambridge had gone and gotten herself a nice new pay grade, and Cambridge liked short meetings.

At least, Head Auror Cambridge did. Perhaps she'd catch the curse of the department heads too. Benzi certainly hoped not, as he had things to do and no time to waste.

"Morning," he greeted them all as he walked in directly after his least favourite YATI, and took a seat next to Simon. As is custom, he'd just come from his morning workout, and if someone wondered why the room suddenly smelled of citrus, he'd accidentally used Emma's shampoo instead of his own.

Yeah I broke that mirror, so what? ll NOT backward ll Official Gryfferin ll Lemon's favourite

The hour was drawing closer to 10 and even without having actually started the meeting, she was solidly ready for it to be over. Next to orientation, start of year meetings were the bane of her ministry employment. The Department Head had a feeling that wouldn't change for a while--if it ever did.

Hazel eyes instinctively flew to the door as a figure appeared and walked through. Simon. She wasn't at all surprised he'd been the first to arrive, in fact there was a part of her that expected it. "Morning." She greeted, making the conscious effort to stop swiveling in her chair now that she had company and more company still as Hirase entered behind him. She could remember a time when they shared the castle back at school. Suffice to say she was relieved he'd grown out of whatever he was dealing with back then. "Morning."

Oh, Jake had parchment with him? Interesting stuff? Lex crooned her neck a moment, trying to get a peak even as she returned the greeting. Morning." It was weird, y'know? Not walking in with a grumbled 'morning' then sitting quietly in agitation for the moment it was over but instead actively returning greetings. Definitely weird.

And there was one of the newbs (Amidala). Lex returned her nod with one of her own. In this department, it didn't take long for people to know almost everyone. With all the intersecting that happened and the fact many depended on each other to stay alive, it was bound to happen. She'd wait to see how well she fit in. And another two newbs while they were at it. Lex watched as first Espinosa then Creed made their way into the room. At least she wouldn't have to worry about this lot not understanding the importance of everyone else's time. It was precious on this level, and heavily guarded. "Morning."

Then it was back to the familiar faces. "Morning." She'd caught the fidgeting and thus the ring now on the Keighley's finger but didn't feel inclined to say anything more about it. Especially not when her attention was drawn to the next to enter. Burton. She'd read over her file and had made the necessary notes. It was one of the first matters of personnel that she'd had to deal with and was still currently dealing with. "Morning."

Carter's nod was returned in kind. Just that, a small nod. Merlin knew what was plaguing the boy at this time of the morning but that was something for the YATIL to look into. Speaking of, she'd need to figure that out.

"Any more citrus and I'll be immune to the common cold, Rider." If only he'd sat next to her, she could kick him under the table as was their custom at these meetings. Alas, he'd taken the seat over by Simon.Merlin how was she going to throw useful memos at his head now when she was done with them? Suffice to say she hadn't thought through all the things a change in office would mean. This one kinda crept up on her.

Annnyyyywwwaaaayyyyy, as she'd meant what she said about no one here having time to waste, it was time to address them. Anyone who wasn't already here was likely not coming. Busy busy department this one.

"Right, let's get cracking. There's just a few things I want to go over quickly, housekeeping mostly. Things we gotta iron out. Stuff to get on the same page with." Didn't need a memo card or a piece of parchment. It was a short list and she was pretty familiar with everything on it. "First thing's first. We're gonna need a new Head Auror....obviously. For now I'll retain the role until the position can be filled but that's something to keep at the top of your heads. Stop by the office if you want a discussion and I'll take it into consideration. Similarly, Vivi's stepping down from YATIL meaning we're gonna need a new one of those, too. Same procedure, drop by if you think you're qualified and you're interested."

Someone was gonna have to keep the YATI in line and until they moved from part time workers, she would pass on that. "Muriel, our receptionist for those of you who don't know, will be taking some time off for the next month." Some...stress thing or another. She'd been vague for the usually chatty older woman. "That means we'll need some help manning the front desk. If you've got some time to spare, have a seat out there. Take your files with you if you want. It's an open opportunity for some extra office hours to any YATI interested as well." Might as well make use of them while they were here and it'd be a chance to work at a desk so not all bad.

"Before I continue, I'd like an update on what you've been working on or things you plan to get rolling." Just so everyone could be in the loop.

Yes, Ava could smell the scent of citrus when Auror Rider came in but she didn't make a big deal of it. She also decided not to react when Cambridge gave a sarcastic comment and just keep herself being silent for the entire meeting. There were many changes happened now and somehow she was curious what had happened to their previous department head.

Progress? Well.............

Since this one right here had been absent for months last year so there would be none from her. Another reason why she was going to keep silent.Perhaps Ava should just see the department head in person because there were some things she wanted to ask and catch up in order to get back on track.

Meerrrrlllin. Someone needed to teach Rider the art of subtlety when it came to his toiletries. He did crack a smirk when Alexa commented on it. And at least it was something citrusy instead of, say, Axe or something equally low-class. He didn't think his nose would've been able to stand it.

"Is that YATIL position open to us.....YATI..." oh how he hated that term "...as well?" He actually surprised himself by managing to keep his voice neutral. As for the position, he was asking out of genuine curiosity. He knew that's the way his mother ran her department and the Aurors-in-training seemed to do better with someone that was going through the same thing at the exact same time as they were. Not that he expected Britain to be anything like France. He knew the two were as different as night and day.

And yes, he would be taking her up on that reception thing, simply for the hours. Though, he didn't see where it would help with learning a thing about the job of an Auror, which is what he was training for.

Simon took note that the spinning had stopped but didn’t have time to dwell as the next person to join them had entered the conference room. And the next. And the next. A mixture of old hats and new faces though the security head though they all still looked young to him. Sometimes he thought he’d never get used to being the department member that had already been there when everyone else was joining. That the experienced members that had been his mentors were all gone off to different pursuits.

Nevertheless, he greeted those who spoke up their own greeting as they entered, finding himself with the citrusy Rider sitting right beside him. Good thing he wasn’t allergic. Would have made things awkward for him as Alexa started the meeting. Simon knew of the openings, head auror as obvious as the department head had said, and the other woman’s decision to step down as trainer. He just hoped those who chose to help cover Muriel’s desk didn’t make his job any harder.

As for status reports, he at least had an answer for once, seeing as the other three topics really didn’t involve him. “Well the situation down in Mysteries seems to have been resolved,” he remarked, remembering what had ended the year. The affected back to normal and all that. “Though I will be making sure patrols on Level 9 are a bit more…special…to make sure nothing else happens especially that we aren’t aware of until its too late.” Probably personally as he tended to have the best repor with Level 9.

Lex paused long enough for anyone with anything to say to speak up while she did a brief run through of the things they needed to address after. The silence didn't bother her, it was the question that broke the silence that did.

Alexa raised a brow at Carter, wondering just how serious he was being. On the off chance he was entirely serious, she made the executive decision to leave the snark out of her response. All that remained was the professionalism and finality in her tone. "YATIL is the position for an Auror who's already gone through the training and had a few years out in the field gaining crucial experience." For obvious reasons. "They help to train the YATI, they assess the YATI based on skill level and aptitude for the job, the YATIL will keep them organized and ensure they have enough field experience to complement the in building training, so no, it's not open to YATIs." That would be allowing the blind to lead the blind. A YATI grading other YATIs? A YATI instructing them on best practices while learning themselves? Surely he saw the flaw in that logic, if not then add that to another reason why YATIs weren't allowed to lead each other.

Simon's update got a thoughtful nod out of her.

"Good." Consider that approved. "Keep it to a tight group, there's still a ton of sensitive information down there. If Airey has any objections, it'd help to remind him of the previous year." That had been....a mess and they didn't need more food fights in the cafeteria and grown people wallowing in the greenhouse flowers. "Being the first line of defence, it doesn't help anyone when security is the last to know." So it was a good call on his part.

There was another pause and a glance around the room. Time to get into it then. "There's been a sudden surge of break ins in Chudleigh." The wizarding village there. "Alarms have been going off like crazy. Gonna need the Hit Wizards on that asap. Forensics, I'd like you to lend as much help there as you can. See if we can't put a stop to that sooner than later. Next, I've got a special assignment for any Auror that can be spared. If you don't have a case you're actively working on, stop by my office for the briefing." She looked to the YATIs present. "There'll be a special, in ministry training session, coming up for the YATI. You're all expected to present yourselves. There'll be a notice posted when the time gets closer and...." What was that other thing....? Oh! "Simon, we're looking at getting a new batch of security in time for the quidditch world cup this summer." As they'd all know, they'd won the bid and it was just about time. "Get them up to speed as quickly as possible. We'll need them at ministry standard or higher if possible."

"Creed. I'd like you and your team to make a stop over in Diagon Alley. There's been some unconfirmed reports of a vendor over there passing off fake magical artifacts as the real deal. You're welcome to a pair of Aurors to get the job done, but if they're all stretched, the Hit Wizards are a good alternative."

And if no one really had anything else to add....Lex looked to the clock across the room again. "That's that. I'll let you all get back to work. Any questions, you know where to find me." For now anyway. There was a good chance she'd be out of office later in the afternoon.

Manning the front desk, eh? That didn't sound like the most exciting task in the world, but if he had some time to spare here or there, Jake figured he wouldn't mind filling in. Might break up his time a little bit if nothing else, and he could double up with catching up on long, long overdue paperwork. He made a quick little note on his parchment - just a little 'front desk' to jog his memory later - before setting down his quill again.

As for updates and things to get rolling, Jake... he had just one thing he wanted to bring up, something he'd only recently put a good amount of thought into. But, with everyone gathered around like this, it suddenly occurred to him that it might be better to bring Lex the proposal later in person. Hmm, yes. Yes, he'd do just that. Jake shuffled the appropriate parchment to the bottom of the pile. Ahem.

Break-ins in Chudleigh, eh? Jake looked up at that and gave a nod of his head, before making another note on his parchment - 'Chudlee'. That was likely to keep him busy for Merlin knew how long, and so the sooner he got to it, the better.

Aaaaand... they were done? Short and sweet? Somehow, that made a lot of sense what with this being Alexa Cambridge and all. Very quickly, he piped up, "I have a proposal to show you at one point, Lex, about an idea for a sort of... programme. If it's alright, I'll come to your office when we're - hopefully - both free?" In the meantime, he was already gathering up his parchment and coffee, ready to head on out.

Lex had only just grabbed her cup of coffee and eased up out of her chair when Jake spoke up.

A proposal? Programme?

"Walk with me?" She said, nodding toward the door before heading toward it. "I wanna hear all about it if you've got the time right this second. 'm afraid my afternoon'll be jam packed so if not now, we're looking at maybe tomorrow." And while it probably wasn't SUPER URGENT or he'd have brought it to her already, she'd be lying if she said her interest wasn't now peaked.

Burton, she supposed, would be heading to her office in a while but she could see Jake first as there was no real rush on that either and there were still quite a few hours before she had to disappear.

One could say Benzi had tested their department's sense of smell with his shampoo mishap this morning, but honestly other than suggesting he bathe in it every day to stave off a level wide common cold, he let the matter go and focused on the meeting at hand. Everyone present, some newer people, and then updates. ... And job offers.

Benzi was not interested in the YATIL position, given that some of their attitudes really irritated him and he couldn't fathom abandoning some field work to tend to some nineteen year olds' authority issues, but his ears pricked right up at the Head Auror mention. Of course, he'd thought about instantly after learning of Lex's promotion, and he'd had mixed thoughts about it so far. On the one hand, more paperwork. Never a good thing. And then there's the matter of him being less of a vet in the department than some others, as they were all aware.

But more responsibility around here and a pay raise were two things Benzi Rider was very interested in, and he wondered if Cambridge even put him in the pool of contenders. After sharing his updates, the situation in the north resolved and two new cases around Manchester, Benzi resumed listening to their new Department Head speak. Special assignment now? He did have cases - he always made sure to have cases, by any means necessary - but it sounded interesting. Volunteering for stuff around the department was sure to look good, regardless of anything else.

Right. Best get on with it. "Have a good day everyone," Benzi got up and nodded around the room before disappearing through the door directly after Cambridge and Upstead.

Like he said, Britain and France were two different entities and yes, he could see the reasoning there. So, as long as the new YATIL wasn't Shacklebolt or Rider, all was good. A nod was given as an indication of that, and Ronan remained silent the rest of the short meeting. Also, the Flamsteed situation? Let's just say he was glad to be out of that, if only so he didn't end up going off.

Ooo...a special training session? He was going to be very disappointed if this turned out to be related to the World Cup somehow. After all, he had never understood the interest in the sport of Quidditch, and was happy to have left the overall enthusiasm for it behind at Hogwarts.

As the meeting ended, he offered each of his fellow workers a good-bye nod and was out the door quicker than one could say the words. He did have a session at the YATI (ugh, that word) facility, after all. Also, he wanted away from the citrus scent, was becoming overpowering.

YATIL…

Simon vaguely remembered that back in his day as a trainee, there hadn’t been such a thing. Might have helped him and Josh from being a YATI for so long because of turnover of department and division leadership and lousy recordkeeping. Not that it mattered at all now. What matter was the latest generation got one that got them properly trained, something Viv had been and the former auror couldn’t help but wonder who would follow.

He nodded at Alexa’s acceptance of his progress, her comments along the line his mind was already leaning. Yeah, Flamsteed likely didn’t need to be reminded too hard on what had happened last year to his employee and office. Not to mention the others affected by the ‘brains’ in his department.

The security head listened to the story on Chudleigh, though it wasn’t his domain. The assighment of the hit wizards to the problem a confirmation that he didn’t need. However, Simon perked up at his name being spoken, reminding him the Wizarding World Cup would be. And more security to help with the added load of responsibility. “Of course,” he assured with a nod, jotting thoughts down before they were dismissed, the man raising to his feet and heading out.

No better reason to check in with Victoria.

There were some very interesting individuals in this department. His eyes mostly crossing over toward the young YATI who smelled to strongly of everything. It would make his eyes water if he had sat any nearer to that young man.

And any doubt quickly vanished on the Department Head. Ms. Cambridge though young seemingly immature had spoken professionally and with confidence in her voice. Creed respected that and would gladly work with her for how ever much longer he decided to stay employed. Being a Former-Retiree he wasn't sure he needed to stay for very long.

No Head Auror and no YATIL. While the first seemed enticing to volunteer for the Bald Man would refrain from asking for that spot. Though he was experienced as an Auror in the American Ministry it would be too forward of him so early to suggest he could take the position right away. He should need to prove he was up to the task first with his duties as the IUMO Chief Inspector.

The second option though. To train and watch over younger Aurors. He didn't want to pass up that chance. Perhaps he could request he fill in as YATIL until Ms. Cambridge could find a proper appointee for the position.

He wrote down a few notes to keep himself informed and looked toward Ms. Cambridge as she informed him of the Vendor in Diagon Alley. He jotted that down and made a mental note to speak to her further on the case. He would see if anyone in Accidents and Catastrophes could be spared as well as his position also required some work with that department should it be necessary with Aurors possibly being spread thin. He nodded toward her as acknowledgment that he understood her orders.

Then...was the meeting already truly over. He looked toward the younger gentleman which whom Ms. Cambridge requested he follow her about some sort of proposal. In the mean time perhaps he could set up at the Receptionist Desk rather than get comfortable at his space first.
