Gaming Console
 
Looking for a way to take a break the Muggle way? There's a large television with several Muggle game systems plugged into it, as well as a shelving unit with the games stuck in every which way. Some of the games are old, some don't fit into any of the existing game systems, and at least one is actually a paperback book and not a game at all. Still, there are a few really good options for those who want to learn this Muggle entertainment style.

The Technology center…

One of the trickier places in the Ministry to deal with spell wise since one had to be careful not to mess up the electronics with the magic. Not impossible, seeing as both the Ministry and Hogwarts managed to incorporate it within, just tricky. So as Simon approached the next spot on their sweep, his scans were adjusted accordingly. Grateful that he had enough experience in both worlds to understand how to let them compliment each other without too much trouble. He certainly knew others that didn’t necessarily have that luck even in this day and age.

hallo this is an open post yay
 
LEARN? HAHAHA HOOHOOOOHOOO.

Nah.

Theophilus KNEW how this thing worked. And he knew all of the tricks to keep it working when it decided to fizzle. If anyone approached the tech centre, they'd have heard his loud voice shouting at the game as he stood on a chair, controller in hand trying to steer the car on the game.

He WAS a great driver when it came to a real car. PROMISE.

Yasmin had left her meeting on the first floor feeling quite reenergized. Collaborative spaces full of cooperation were truly unmatched in possibility. There were still areas in which they could all improve, but for the most part she felt as if the consultation was truly engaging and meaningful. There was quite a lot to think about and she felt ready to go back to her cubicle to PLAN.

Though on her way, she paused by a room. A room where she heard shouting?

At first, Yasmin approached with caution. Afraid that she had stumbled upon some sort of disagreement or intruded on an intimate moment between two people who wanted their space. But as she drew closer to the shouting, she realized that it was only one voice that she had been hearing. And... He was playing some sort of game?

Yassi watched by the doorway, giggling softly to herself as she quietly watched the sight before her. He truly had a youthful enthusiasm about him, didn't he? It was very refreshing. Something she did not see enough around the ministry.

"WHATTA YOU MEAN I'M IN SECOND PLACE?!!!!" Theophilus was nOt impressed with this change of events and jumped down to sit on the chair he had been previously standing on. "I'll show you what second place means!" A stamp of the foot.

"And then I'll show you how to get to FIRST place."

That was a lie.

Theophilus absolutely finished the race in eighth place after jamming every single button and shouting curse words over and over again.

Nah.

The longer she stood by the doorway, the more fascinated she grew to be. Yassi had never seen a grown man with such youthful enthusiasm about him. It was incredibly refreshing and almost made her forget where they were for a moment. She was enjoying his demeanor so much, even, that she took a few steps into the room itself.

Still, softly giggling and watching him rather fondly.

The curse words did make her flinch a little, but she chose not to reflect on them as she did really appreciate his otherwise excitable behavior. Because she didn't want to scare him, she walked over to stand in a place where he could see, a genuine and warm smile on her features.

In all honesty, Theophilus probably needed to get back to work but he had no intention of it until he had placed higher than a 2. Which if you were dumb..... meant first place. He was going to play until he finished in first place and only then would he go back to work. ONLY THEN.

He wiggled his whole body as the game finished up the credits for the race, stretching his knuckles out and even doing a few lunges. Mans gotta be prepared, you know? Only when he was mid lunge did her notice a lass in the room with him and a slow smile grew across his face. "Losing make me seem more endearing?"

Wounded soldier kinda thing.

Yassi found herself laughing softly again, in a good natured sort of way. Soft and melodic, rather than loud and to tease. Her warm smile only grew when he spoke, and she found herself looking off to the floor for a moment before returning her gaze back to him. "Yes," she answered with a small nod. Though to be fair, she found him endearing from the start.

It was quite refreshing to see this kind of energy in the Ministry. Her past few months here had only proven that working in a governmental office was anything less than energetic. It was quite a shame, honestly. "What are you playing?" It was difficult to tell from the shouting alone.

Yes? Well, that was always a positive way to start and end a conversation with a lass. Theo's grin grew. "I'm even more endearing when I'm out for dinner at an all you can eat buffet, lass." Which was true. But he was also less endearing when he actually got to eating. So, it was a strange situation. He would say win-win because he was getting to eat and food was doing it's purpose for him, but it depended on how people saw it.

With a wink he waved the controller at her, indicating that she should take it from him. "Play with me and you'll see."

Again, she found herself laughing. His jovial nature was quite contagious. Perhaps they could find a way to bring it to the rest of the Ministry. "And why is that?" she asked with a warm smile on her lips. She would argue that with a personality such as his, it was likely that he was endearing in every circumstance. But Yassi didn't argue.

Though she knew she ought to get back to the office, the waving of the controller was all the convincing she needed. She hesitated for a moment before stepping forward to take it in her hands, turning it around to inspect it for a moment, before looking back up at him, slightly confused.

Ha ha ha. Ho ho ho. "Food makes my belly happy. I'm an all around pleasant guy when I'm around food." Which was why dinner on a date was always how he got a second date. Tactics. Theo span a chair to sit on it and patted the one beside it indicating that she should sit. His lap was also available if she was opposed to wooden chairs, though. Always helpful.

"Press the start button. You'll get an info screen to help you before I beat you." Because she wasn't just playing alone. No way was he going to miss out on looking both helpful and talented.

Again, she would argue that he was quite pleasant now and he didn't have food. But also again, she didn't argue. "I have a hard time believing you'd ever be unpleasant." With a personality as vibrant as his. She had only just met him, yes, but she could tell. He had an uplifting soul. Yassi was quite good at picking up on vibes. And his vibe was one full of spirit.

She hesitated for a moment before making way to sit on the chair he offered, giving him a sheepish smile and quiet "thank you," as she sat. "You are very confident," she smiled, pressing the 'start' button as instructed and leaning forward to read the instructions. "It is not too complicated?" Because she was really looking for a brain breather, a refreshing break. Not one that involved too many buttons and confusing moves. Playing this game was meant to juxtapose the work she had waiting for her in the office.
