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).

Could she get away with going home early today? There wasn't a whole lot going on right now, right? Her employees got this. Plus, she had good Division Heads and-

Oh.

Could she just pretend not to be in? That would probably be frowned up, yeah? Yeah. "Yes? Come in. It's unlocked." Hopefully this wouldn't take too long. She didn't EXPECT anyone. Maybe it was Cole.

Janis entered the office and took in a small breath. "Hello, there er, madam. My name is Janis Pearl and I work in the Department of Magical Games and Sports. I am here to discuss potential plants for my department to have for the workstations. We had a few issues with plants thanks to the previous Minister for Magic so I believe Victoria Culloden thought such matters should be, well, cleared by you."

The blonde paused feeling quite nervous. She hadn't really interacted with other department heads before.

Oh. That was unexpected. Neither one of her employees nor Cole.

'Madam.'

Olly's eyebrows went up a little at that address but she didn't comment on it. "Hello. Please have a seat, Ms. Pearl." She gestured to one of the available seats across from her desk. This department was not one she would have expected to work with closely but she was intrigued all the same. "So you...currently don't have any plants on your level but would like some?" Did she understand that correctly?

Janis sat down and nodded. "We are looking to have some plants preferably Muggle-based plants for our offices to brighten up the place. Actually, come to think of it, we're thinking of the entire Ministry having plants. Considering what happened with plants last year, we are taking a more cautious route."

Janis paused and continued. "Maybe there is someone in your department that might be able to help with such a task."

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....
Leaving Cassidy and Kristopher at the day care sometimes made Kat nervous, but that was mostly because of the idea of leaving her children with people she was unrelated to. It took a while for her to entirely trust the sitters at the day care. "Well, Cassidy and Kristopher are comfortable there even when it took some time to ease them in, so I'm quite confident." Except during those certain toddler tantrum days. Those would be the worst. She and Olly could discuss more on this during their days off. Kat wouldn't mind making the time for motherly matters.

The blond smiled. "I look forward to meeting your mini-me soon," she added. Or Schuyler's mini-me. Whichever best described little Evie Sophie. Cassidy was obviously a mini-me of Clement, given her little girl's firey red hair. Kat almost suggested she let Cassie meet Evie too, but decided against the thought of her daughter's... noise. She would have to do more than just brief her daughter on dealing with babies.

"Got it, boss," Kat said with a smile before opening the door and excusing herself so she can head back to her work stations. Perhaps she could even make a quick detour to Cole's office if he was around....

Right.

"Of course, yes." They wanted more plants at their department. As well as other departments. "Have you spoken to any of the other department heads about this?" She seemed quite sure about the idea of expanding this project to the whole Ministry after all.

Good to know. She was going to talk to Schuyler about it. Maybe they could check out the nursery at some point. Not for right now, of course; Evie was still too young now but maybe for the future when they were both back to work. Or maybe for when Schuyler was really busy taking care of a new baby........

ANYWAY.

"That's so good to hear, thank you." She smiled at Katrina, realizing she'd been quiet for probably a second too long. "You can bring them by the office some time, too, if you like." For a VISIT, obviously. Not for a whole day of work. But she was trying to be welcoming. "I'll definitely bring her some time soon." Olly said, thinking about how in her eyes Evie looked more like Schuyler's mini-me. Which was totally fine with her. She WAS the prettier out of the two of them. Not that she was biased or anything.

Olly stood when Katrina got up and walked to the door - it was only polite, right? "Thank you. I'll see you later." Probably.

"No, I haven't talked to them. I thought it was best to talk to you first considering this is your area of expertise. I take it that I have your permission to say to the department heads that you've allowed for this idea to happen?" Janis replied. If Olly gave her the go-ahead, Janis would be ready to talk to the department heads quick smart.

Olly took a moment to choose her words carefully, not wanting to antagonize the other woman. But frankly, she was a little confused. "I'd rather talk to my employees myself and let them handle this." She even made a note on her notepad to remind herself to draft up a memo for all the departments to see which ones were interested in this.

"Thank you so much for bringing this to me, though, Janis."

Knowing there was something that Olly needed to talk to Archer about, he arrived early enough to get his work set up for the day before heading over to his Department Head's office. His clothing was tidy, for now, not a speck of fertiliser or plant stain on it.

Knock, knock!

Janis nodded. "Oh, sorry. Yes, of course! You are welcome and thank you for letting me discuss this matter with you. Goodbye now."

And with that, Janis departed the office.

"No, thank you." Olly smiled and even stood up out of politeness when Janis moved to leave. Bye.

Knock, knock!
Having sent Archer a quick memo to meet her in her office as soon as he got around to it, Olly didn't really know WHEN to expect him. He was reliable though and she didn't have any other meetings scheduled for today so she was very flexible. She took a sip of her tea and was about to start looking at a file on her desk, when she heard the knock.

Oh.

"Come in!" Hopefully it was Archer because frankly, her brain wasn't QUITE up to the task of discussing any other matters with someone else right now. She hadn't got a lot of sleep last night. None of them had.

Hearing the all clear to come in, Archer turned the door handle and headed in, closing it behind him. "Good morning Boss," he greeted. He'd had his first coffee, and would give himself at least two hours of work before having his second. He sat down on one of the chairs, feeling his senses pleased at the minimalistic decor. Too much was just clutter, and Archer didn't feel good in clutter. Not that it mattered, it wasn't his office. "You wanted to see me?" Straight to the point was Archer.

Good, it was Archer.

And his greeting made Olly smirk a little too. Maybe she should invite him to her office every morning. It was a nice start into her day. "Good morning, Archer." Yes, she was his boss but it still sounded a bit funny in her head anyway. Especially considering he was like 15 years older than she was.

"I did, yes." She took a sip of her tea and picked up her quill - mostly to play around with while she spoke. "Someone from Magical Sports came to me and asked about new plants for their department, seeing as they were all removed after last year's......." How to put this nicely? "After some of the plants flipped out last year." Close enough. "So I know this might be under your pay-grade but we were thinking of equipping the entire Ministry with plants again, to make it more green again." So there was that.

"What do you think?"

"What do you think?"
Archer watched as Olly started playing around with the quill, his own hands clasped casually together. He wasn't much of a fiddler, but he did like quills.

He listened to what she was saying, something about Magical Sports. He hoped she wasn't about to ask about Quidditch tipping, or having their department start some sort of sport activity, because he wasn't interested. Thankfully, it was about plants. His face lit up at the thought of other departments wanting to have new plants, and more so about equipping the entire ministry with plants. He had two green thumbs, and would be a happy man if there was green everywhere.

"I think it's a great idea. Truly. What are you thinking regarding types? We could propagate herbs with calming scents with plants that will improve the air quality. Add a little carnivorous genome to keep any bugs at a low. With beautiful flowers that don't end up looking wilted and dead. Ones that keep blooming during the day and do their dying and decomposing overnight." His eyes were alive at the thought of such a plant. Was she on the same page as him? He hoped she'd get there if she wasn't.

He hoped she'd get there if she wasn't.
Her brief concern over Archer, as Head Botanist, taking this request as something way too basic for his talents quickly evaporated as soon as she saw the smile on his face. She should have known she could rely on Archer to work with her on this.

Phew.

"Yes, that sounds absolutely perfect." She'd taken a few notes on what he'd said and looked up at him again now. "I was also thinking of going beyond mere decorations in the sense that...they could be useful as well as nice to look at. Like what you said about the air quality but maybe even have some plants they actively have to take care of. Keep alive and maybe even be able to harvest." Like vegetables or herbs.

Archer had been busy with researching for this plant they wanted to bring into the Ministry. It was, in his eyes, perfect. He'd been experimenting for the past few weeks, both in the Greenhouses and at home, and now it was all down on paper.

He had a folder, neatly organised. Diagrams of what it would look like, the relatively low maintenance things that had to be done for the plants, but also the vast list of benefits and qualities. He had it tucked under his arm when he knocked at Olly's door, excited to talk more about it with her.

Olly looked up from gathering her things from her desk, about to head out of her office. Hopefully this wasn't yet another person asking about their new café. James' office was so much closer, they should just go to him. She really had better things to do. Maybe she should put up a sign inside the café that said that all questions or concerns should be directed at James.

That was what she was going to do tonight.

"Come in." She called out to whoever was outside her door, standing on the other side of her desk, her back towards the door. She put the remaining pieces of parchment into a neat pile and double checked to see if she'd put everything else she needed into her bag. Her plan was to find Archer, talk to him about the new initiative and then go home for lunch.

And maybe work from home the rest of the day too.

"Hello Boss," Archer said in jest as he entered Olly's office. He got straight to the point by first showing her his hand-drawn picture, which he had animated, of the prototype plant. It was in a decorative looking pot - not too outrageous, but something a little fancier than a terra cotta pot. The leaves were of different shades of green, and large, with beautifully varied flowers. One or two of the bulbs opened to show a large mouth snapping at a nearby fly.

"The roots here," he said, pointing to the bottom of the pot where some fluffy-looking greenery was growing, "are calming herbs. I've researched a few ways to make a fresh tea from them, right from the picking, so that if anyone is feeling particularly stressed they can harvest some of the small leaves, steep in hot water for five minutes and have a calming beverage." He'd tried it himself at home, and it had worked. "And my wife helped me with a fertilising powder they mix with water. It gets into the flower roots and lets off a scent that's mostly individual to whoever smells it. The aim is for something calming, but some people might just detect a pleasant aroma." He wasn't sure just yet, having only tested it on his family. The aroma he detected left him feeling alert and energised, yet calm.

"I've got some seedlings growing in the Greenhouses, but this one," he pointed to the picture, "is safe in my home greenhouse." He would bring it in to show Olly once it had matured. He hoped it would only be another few days, when the flowers opened.

The thing was, her and Archer weren't particularly close or anything but they did work incredibly well together. They appeared to be on the same wavelength with regard to work and....right now, regarding their respective time management. "Archer, I was just about to look for you." She smiled at him, turning around and leaning against her desk to face him when he entered.

He had very good timing, indeed.

She listened and watched as Archer elaborated on his drawing. It really did look absolutely perfect what they had in mind. "Wow. And they're low maintenance too, yeah?" Olly held out her hand so she could take a closer look at the animated drawing he'd brought with him. "How much longer do you think until it's ready?" So she could check it out herself before they went any further on growing more of them.

Although, she did of course trust Archer's judgement. But with the previous incidents, she didn't want to take any chances.

Archer nodded, "Very much so. Just need a bit of water every few days. We've been using a potion my wife whipped up, mixed with water, and we can make enough of it to last each department a few weeks." By which time Gabby and he could brew more.

He had assumed this question was coming. Of course it would, it was a work project and these things had due dates. "I think next week they will be ready enough to re-pot and distribute around the Ministry." He also had a small poster he had put together, showing Olly, which had a little bit of information on the plant, the many features of the plant, and simple care instructions. "I can copy these to go out with them if you'd like."
