Default Office of Olly Emmons-Clarke

{Office of the Department Head}


The location of the Department Head's office has stayed the same, however, the interior has changed considerably. Not being one for excessive decorating, Olly chose a rather minimalistic approach with regard to furnishing the office, only setting up a couple of shelves, a simple office desk and a few chairs. The latter are neither particularly comfortable nor uncomfortable which should consequently make you feel welcome but not encourage you to stay too long if you're a visitor.

The only thing that might look a little out of place in an office setting is the crib standing by one of the windows. It is more often than not empty but might occasionally be occupied by Evie Sophie - Olly and Schuyler's daughter.

Remember to knock before entering!





OOC: Come play with me, whether it's a scheduled meeting or just your character wanting to ask or discuss something. As always, if you have any questions or want to discuss something OOC, just PM me (Lislchen).

With one last mental inventory about the contents of her report, Beatrice hugged the bulky compilation of documents to her chest as she let out a breath. The former Ravenclaw was a little anxious because she hasn't done a personal courtesy call in a while. But she had met their new Department Head at the cocktail party and she was nice enough.

She knocked and gracefully stepped inside the office, a smile on her face. "Good morning, Miss Olly." And, just as she spied the crib from the corner of her eye, she gasped in delighted surprise.

Olly had been expecting Beatrice to come by her office so she wasn't all too surprised by the knock on the door. "Come in." How formal that sounded. She'd never had her own office before. Or anything that even remotely resembled an own office. She was still getting used to all the changes and new responsibilities. And she couldn't even ask for feedback or anything. She was doing alright, though, hopefully.

Maybe she could convince Schuyler to come back to work so she could give her feedback.

ANYWAY, now Beatrice was here. "Good morning." Olly looked up the file she'd been reading and set it aside. What was she...? Oh. Following the woman's line of sight, Olly smiled a little. "It's empty right now." And yes, she missed Evie A LOT. Schuyler too of course.

Maybe she could go home for lunch today? Hmm.

If she had any reservations with their new Department Head before, it was all gone now. Not after she saw the crib and had put two and two together. This woman had a kid, probably not out of toddler age yet if the crib was any indication, who was so special that she had her own place set up inside this office. What woman would go the extra mile if she was not a caring, loving mother?

Beatrice readily felt at ease at the notion.

Doting mothers unite!

"I didn't know you had a baby, Olly." Her too! She had a baby too. Merlin, she was starting to miss Tamlin terribly now. She hoped he was being well-behaved with the Mordaunts.

"Oh, and here's my report." She added, walking towards the other woman's table and setting the documents she had with her carefully. They could talk about babies as they discussed business, no?

Olly simply smiled at the other woman for a moment, genuinely too. It still took her by surprise at times too. She had a BABY. And she was MARRIED. Also she was the head of a whole department now. All of that was just...as silly as that sounded, sometimes she still woke up at night and wondered if it had all been a dream somehow.

"I do." She leaned back in her seat a little, nodding towards one of the chairs across from her in what she hoped would indicate an invitation for Beatrice to sit down. "We do. She was born in January." Her eyes dropped to the documents the other woman had brought with her.

Right, the report.

Right, the report.
Still smiling, she took a seat, draping one leg over the other. It's been so long since she was in this office. The last time she sat here was with Ms. Howell, offering her quite the assignment.

Turning her attention back to her Department Head, Beatrice bit her lip. We. This was one thing that the former eaglette knew though. She knew that Olly was married to another Ministry employee. "I don't think I've met your...wife." It was wife, right? Beatrice absolutely had nothing to say about that. What's important was that they were two people who loved each other.

And onto more baby talk. Internal!squeal!"You said January? So your baby is still only a few months old?" They were the cutest during those times.

Olly noted the brief pause but chose not to comment on it. "Schuyler, yeah. She works here too." As in, here here. This department here. It was going to be very interesting to work together again at some point, considering this new hierarchy. "I'm sure you can meet her at some point if you like." Surely, Schuyler was going to visit her in her office soon.

As for Evie. "Yeah, she is." Olly turned one of the picture frames on her desk around for Beatrice to be able to look at a photo of Evie taken quite recently.

Meet the Department Head's wife? Why, of course. Meet the Department Head's daughter? Even better. Not that Olly said that but Beatrice figured it went without saying. "It would be a pleasure to meet her." She loved meeting new people too so win-win.

It had taken a lot of internal courage not to squeal outright when she glimpsed the baby on the picture. Oh, the precious precious child. She could only breathe out deeply, her smile broadening to an almost ear-splitting one. "Wow, Olly...She's perfect." There were simply no other words. The sight made her heart warm. "Can I offer you a picture of my son as well?"

Please say yes.

There was a general consensus that it was a pleasure to meet Schuyler, yes. Olly agreed.

Now Olly wondered if she should make it an official thing, though. Was that something people did? Introduce their spouse to their employees? But then again most people working for her now already knew Schuyler. So maybe just Beatrice? But she didn’t want anyone to think she was showing favoritism. Hm. She was going to discuss this with Schuyler at some point.

She was better at these things than she was.

Honestly, Olly was starting to enjoy seeing people’s reactions to her daughter. Or at least to photos of her daughter. She wasn’t a huge fan of people wanting to hold her and cuddle her and kiss her face and all that. But the obvious glee on Beatrice’s face amused her to no end. Not that she let that show, however. She simply smiled at the other woman. “Yeah, she is.” No point denying it. Evie WAS perfect.

Wait, Beatrice’s son? “ ‘course.” Maybe she should add something more. “I’d love to see a photo of your son.” There, that sounded better.

Kat had just finished up her last few papers before she had to head over to Olly's office. As she scanned through them, she noted that there were a few magical plant sanctuaries she would have to pay visits to weeks from now, just in case. Nothing new, definitely. She was only doing her job as an environmental ranger. It was only that some habitat managers were just the human representations of a headache. There were betters days, but she could handle them. It has been her job for the past four years.

Once she was just outside Olly's office door, Kat quietly cleared her throat and pushed the uncooperative strands of hair off her face before knocking and allowing herself into the office. "Good day, Olly," the blond greeted with a polite smile. "You asked to see me?"

Olly was still trying to sort through the chaos the former minister had left her department in. What was even worse than paperwork in general was having to look over other people’s paperwork and redoing most of it. She missed the more hands on work she’d been doing before sometimes. Hopefully once she had organized her department and was able to delegate more bureaucratic work to her division heads, she would be able to work in the greenhouses again.

Speaking of, though, here was Katrina.

“Kat, hi. Yeah , come in.” She sat up a little straighter in her chair and motioned towards one of the chairs across from her desk.

With Olly's permission to fully enter the room, Kat slipped inside and quietly closed the door behind her. Olly's room was actually great and it was how Kat would have personally arranged things herself. Neat, minimalistic, comfy. Perhaps it was an effect of having kids of her own, who had an affinity for grabbing random things that would catch their attention. It was usually the colourfully patterned vases.

Oh, and that crib. It brought a tiny smile to Kat's face. "I remember when my kids used to sleep in cribs. Now, they're just very persistent about sleeping on their own beds," the former Slytherin shared. Such a tough stage in parenthood, to be frank. Cassidy was also quite adamant about choosing her own clothes. Anyhow, she wasn't here to talk about the motherly life with her new boss. "Is there any way I can be of assistance to you today, Olly?" Assuming that is why she was called to her office in the first place, at least. Kat didn't mind.

Wait, Beatrice’s son? “ ‘course.” Maybe she should add something more. “I’d love to see a photo of your son.” There, that sounded better.
Contrary to the Department Head's slight smile, Beatrice's was one that pulled taut at her facial muscles, a smile that could only be gracing her face when she was talking about something she was passionate about. In this case, it was babies. More specifically, hers and Olly's, and the woman was nothing short of excited. Even before she had Tamlin, she had always been uncritically fond of children. Babysitting her friends' kids was her usual weekend. She was even branded "baby crazy" by some.

So of course it was no wonder she had a wallet-sized photo album of her son, just a four-paged one but an album nonetheless, its edges appearing a little worn out from ALL the times she had flipped through it just to get through her day while he was away from her. "Here, look, this one's when I first got him," she said, pointing to the first leaf, one where she was carrying a bundle with a mop of dark hair, too small for his face to be fully distinguished. If Olly wondered about her choice of word - got, instead of gave birth to or any variation of it - then she would explain. She didn't keep it a secret from anyone, even to her own son, that he was adopted. But only if Olly asked.

Flipping to the next one, because she was animated like that, the brunette shifted on her seat to nudge closer to Olly, this time pointing another picture: one in which Tamlin was on a crawl, one chubby hand outstretched towards the camera, and sporting a huge toothless smile. He was too cute for his own good!

"And this one's when he was about seven months, probably about the same age your daughter is now. He had just started to learn how to crawl. Merlin, he was unstoppable. Is your daughter in that stage yet?"

Olly REALLY needed to make more of an effort to know at least some things about her employees, she realized. How many children did Katrina have again? It was probably in her file somewhere but there was no way for her to consult it right now, so she simply smiled at the other woman. "Yeah. How old are yours now?" As for the crib though, Olly was both glad and extremely sad that it was usually empty.

Back to business, though. "Yeah." She gave a short nod as she leaned forward in her seat a little. "I want to promote you to Division Head for Enforcement." There was no point to beat around the bush. That was why she'd asked the woman in here after all. "If you feel like you're up to the task." Olly added after a short pause.

She didn't want Katrina to feel like she HAD to accept after all.

"Here, look, this one's when I first got him," she said, pointing to the first leaf, one where she was carrying a bundle with a mop of dark hair, too small for his face to be fully distinguished. If Olly wondered about her choice of word - got, instead of gave birth to or any variation of it - then she would explain. She didn't keep it a secret from anyone, even to her own son, that he was adopted. But only if Olly asked.

Flipping to the next one, because she was animated like that, the brunette shifted on her seat to nudge closer to Olly, this time pointing another picture: one in which Tamlin was on a crawl, one chubby hand outstretched towards the camera, and sporting a huge toothless smile. He was too cute for his own good!

"And this one's when he was about seven months, probably about the same age your daughter is now. He had just started to learn how to crawl. Merlin, he was unstoppable. Is your daughter in that stage yet?"
A photo album, albeit just consisting of four photos but a photo album nonetheless. Olly was going to have to look at multiple photos of Beatrice's child. Oh well, she had agreed to it so here goes. She was going to smile at each of them and tell her how beautiful her son was. Because that was what you did. And it wasn't like the child WASN't beautiful or anything of course. He was quite cute she supposed.

In the back of her mind Olly did notice the fact that Beatrice referred to it as "got" the baby instead of "had" but she didn't question it. That was none of her business and it didn't make the baby any more or less of the other woman's baby either way. Instead she simply smiled down at the photo and nodded along to her words. "He's beautiful." And he was. He looked happy in the photos, too. That's mostly what made babies and children (and, frankly, people) beautiful in her eyes.

As for crawling. "No, not yet. She's only four months now." So not much crawling or independent movement happening just yet.

As for the crib though, Olly was both glad and extremely sad that it was usually empty.

Back to business, though. "Yeah." She gave a short nod as she leaned forward in her seat a little. "I want to promote you to Division Head for Enforcement." There was no point to beat around the bush. That was why she'd asked the woman in here after all. "If you feel like you're up to the task." Olly added after a short pause.

She didn't want Katrina to feel like she HAD to accept after all.
Had Olly asked about her kids, Kat would not have minded and the blond wouldn't have taken it against the other woman for not knowing everything. Besides, it was only Olly's first year as department head and there was definitely still time to get to know the rest of the department. It was very much understandable. "Cassidy's seven while Kristopher's only four," she shared with a smile. "Time flies really fast." Even Kat herself missed the days when Cassie wasn't that loud yet, but alas... her daughter now was one growling little girl. Whether that was a good or a bad thing, the thirty-three year old didn't know either.

However, the former Head Girl was here for matters involving work. Perhaps they could talk more about being parents some other time. And it certainly didn't come as a shock, not entirely, when Olly offered her a promotion. "It would be my pleasure," Kat replied with an affirmative nod. It was a promotion after all, and that entailed benefits as well. Besides, Kat did enjoy casting spells here and there when it came to fieldwork within the enforcement division. This was an opportunity she wouldn't allow to slip away.

Two children then.

That had been a very clever question Olly had asked, seeing as now she knew both the children's age AND the number of children Kat had. "Do they get on?" They were so old already, compared to her own daughter. Not that she was comparing or anything. But honestly, it was a bit of a relief to know that she had fellow mothers working with her. Just in case they ever had any issues with Evie.

And frankly, she trusted Katrina enough to approach her about it, too.

Back to business, though. Olly smiled a little when the other woman accepted her promotion. "Yeah? I'm so glad to hear that." Again, of course it was a promotion so she hadn't truly expected her to decline but it had still been a possibility. The new position did give her more responsibility too which meant more paperwork and at times maybe even longer hours. "I think you'll do a wonderful job and I'm hoping to hire new people for your division soon, too. So maybe you can help me with that when the time comes." It sounded like a practical and logical way to do it in her ears at least.

That was a rather interesting question, Kat had to admit. Did her children get along? The blond smiled a little. "When Cassidy isn't actively trying to disrupt his playtime or his slumber, they do." And with that said, Kat couldn't help but lightly chuckle. She hoped her little ones weren't having tantrums while she was gone. Kat had full trust on her older sister, Dianna, to handle her kids when duty calls. "What's the name of your son? Or daughter?" Olly didn't seem to have mentioned it, but Kat would definitely like to meet little Olly Junior whenever.

Mothers looked out for mothers too, of course. Motherhood was serious business, and that was speaking for seven years of experience.

As for the promotion, Kat didn't at all feel the need to decline it. It meant a great deal for the blond that her boss trusted her enough to fulfil such responsibilities. Besides, paper work never at all bothered her. Just as long as Cassidy never finds them or spills her tea while she worked on them at home. Arrangements were to be made both here and at home, obviously. "Of course," Kat assured. "You'll know where to find me whenever necessary." Or, if not, her address was in her file there if she wasn't at work, yes?

The other two pictures were flipped and showed quickly to her new boss; one of Tamlin's first birthday (she was holding a number 1-shaped balloon as she carried him on her hip in his sailor costume, complete with the cap), the other one was more recent, him smiling at the camera holding a spoon up with chocolate stuck to his teeth. She sighed deeply as she recounted the memory of that last picture, of him pouting nonstop before she relented for some chocolate ice cream. He was no doubt her kid.

Sitting back on her seat, she turned back to Olly. "Well, the months will definitely go by very fast and the next thing you know, she will be walking, running around and asking you to chase her." She gave the woman yet another warm smile and waited. She didn't know if Olly wanted to discuss more about their babies or discuss about her report there and then or if she was going to skim through it first before running it through by her.

That...sounded like a very diplomatic but honest answer. "Yeah? She does that on purpose?" That was probably something not that uncommon with young siblings. It didn't deter Olly from wanting another baby, though. Not one bit. That was ultimately up to Schuyler, though, of course, seeing as she would have to be the one to carry the baby again. Go through the pregnancy again. Through birth. Through breast-feeding...

They would have to discuss this.

"Her name's Evie. Evie Sophie." She turned one of the picture frames on her desk around to show her a photo from when the baby was around four months old. While she was usually not a big fan of people showing HER photos of their children, Olly had come to realize that she loved showing off her own daughter. That was probably how most people felt.

Perfect. Now all she needed was someone who would be in charge of the Regulation division. Then she finally had her whole team together. "Great." And Olly meant it, too. Katrina was a good and solid choice. "I'll leave the announcement to you, so you can simply tell the others in your division that you're in charge now." She smiled at the other woman, a hint of a smirk playing around her lips even. That seemed to be the easiest way to handle this.

There was no point in making a department wide official announcement, right?

Olly patiently looked through all the photos Beatrice was showing her, making sounds like "aww" and "ooh" whenever it seemed appropriate to do so. Which wasn't all that hard, to be honest; the other woman's child was very cute after all. It was something everyone had to go through when encountering a (fellow) parent. She was quite the pro at complimenting other people's children by now.

Still, she much rather liked to talk about her own child. Obviously.

"Yeah, she.....will." Olly trailed off, now a little lost in thought, imagining Evie doing all those things Beatrice had just mentioned. Evie walking. Evie running. Them chasing Evie. That was....kind of scary, wasn't it? They grew up so fast. Wow. Soon she'd be talking to them. Eating by herself. Going to school.

Leaving for Hogwarts...........

Beatrice fully appreciated the other woman for letting her gush over her son even at their very first meeting. Suffice to say it said a lot about how she respected her employees and the former Ravenclaw was glad for that.

The thought of having one's child grow was definitely something contemplative and she could see it in how Olly seemed to have been engrossed by her thoughts. She completely understood.

"Everything okay, Olly?" She asked gently.

"I wouldn't say on purpose," Kat replied. "Cassidy just happens to be really... loud. She's known for growling, but Kristopher likes to have quiet naps." It took a couple of sound-blocking charms to keep unwanted noise away from little Kris' room and to make sure he didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed every time. "They're usually on good terms aside from that." Because if they weren't, who knows how badly Cassidy can throw a tantrum. Especially at the age of seven. Yikes.

And when Olly turned the picture towards her, the blond couldn't help but smile. Yes, her children had been that small before. How time flies, indeed. "She is lovely," Kat complimented. Little Evie Sophie didn't look like half a year old in the photo yet. Very precious.

It still meant a lot to Kat that Olly believed in her capabilities. It was in her Slytherin nature to never want to fail, of course. "As long as I have your blessing, Mrs. Emmons-Clarke," the blond couldn't help but wink. She had a division to sort out, first and foremost. Starting with those greenhouses they needed to make random assessments on. "Would that be all? Is there anything else I can help you with?"

....what wand was Evie going to get?

Beatrice brought her back from her little reverie (or nightmare, however you wanted to look at it - probably a bit of both) by asking her if she was okay. "Yeah. Yes. Of course. Yes." Totally fine. Olly cleared her throat and sat up straighter again. "Alright. So, about your report." That...was why she'd asked her to come in after all. Ahem. Yes.

"Anything I should know?"

"Growling?" They were in for a lot of surprises it seems. "Do you bring them to work occasionally?" The Ministry DID offer a child care center after all so maybe that was something Katrina had tried before. Olly was just trying to collect as much info as possible from someone with a lot more experience than she had. "Thank you." She smiled at the other woman's compliment and turned the photo around again.

Evie WAS lovely.

She liked Katrina, she really really did. She was a hard worker AND had an interesting personality as well. Olly appreciated that. "You have my blessing, Mrs. Belrose." She replied with a soft laugh. "No, that'll be all. Introduce yourself to Cole again maybe when you find the time." She wanted to make sure her fellow department head knew all of her division heads after all. Just in case.

Yes, growling. Kat smiled a little bit at that. She had absolutely no idea where her daughter possibly picked up such behaviour. "Yes, I do when my older sister is busy." Which was most of the time these days, but her kids were with the older Hudson sister as they speak. Dianna was always there for Cassidy and Kristopher when Kat was busy, but she too had a job of her own. And Kat didn't mind the slightest about Olly's questions. It was mums helping fellow mums out, especially during those tough times involving raising a child. "I would also love to meet Evie Sophie one day." If Olly and Schuyler would allow, of course.

"Why, thank you." She was pleased. She had her boss' blessing, and that was all Kat needed. Had she and Olly known each other more during their Hogwarts days—no one shall speak of how many years have passed, though—perhaps they would have been good friends too. "That'll be my first task, then." It felt like starting again from scratch with the promotion, but it was quite refreshing. "Thank you very much, Olly. I'll keep you updated," the blond said as she began to rise from her seat.

Dianna was always there for Cassidy and Kristopher when Kat was busy, but she too had a job of her own. And Kat didn't mind the slightest about Olly's questions. It was mums helping fellow mums out, especially during those tough times involving raising a child. "I would also love to meet Evie Sophie one day." If Olly and Schuyler would allow, of course.

"Why, thank you." She was pleased. She had her boss' blessing, and that was all Kat needed. Had she and Olly known each other more during their Hogwarts days—no one shall speak of how many years have passed, though—perhaps they would have been good friends too. "That'll be my first task, then." It felt like starting again from scratch with the promotion, but it was quite refreshing. "Thank you very much, Olly. I'll keep you updated," the blond said as she began to rise from her seat.
Oh, so she DID bring her children to work occasionally. Interesting. "So the daycare center is good?" Not that she would have need for it right now but maybe in the future. Plus, she was supposed to get feedback from her employees on these things too, right? So there, she was of course mostly asking in her capacity as department head. Ahem.

When Katrina mentioned wanting to meet Evie, Olly smiled and nodded. "Sure." She'd have to discuss this with Schuyler but it seemed like a good idea to introduce Evie to her employees at some point, right? Maybe THEN she might even be able to bring her with her to her office without her employees hovering around the crib constantly.

Which was part of why she hadn't taken her to work yet.

"Thank you." It was such a big relief to know she had delegated to Katrina. She truly believed she would do a great job at being division head. "And if you need anything, I'm here." She gave her another smile. Good, one thing off her to-do list....

Janis had completed her meeting with her fellow Department of Magical Games and Sports employees and had been allocated the task of discussing plants for the office. She headed for the office of Olly Emmons-Clarke and knocked on the door.
