Default Coffee Room

The Coffee Room, which also doubles as a break room for the harassed staff of the Daily Prophet, is in desperate need of a makeover. The door, when opened into the room, takes up half the room and the sofa takes up the other half. A shiny, brand-spanking new coffee machine looks out of place resting on a dilapidated filing cabinet. If you're looking for sugar or milk to add taste to the only decent beverage in the room coffee, you should probably look elsewhere or bring it in with you. The editor really prefers his coffee plain black, anyway, so no frilly coffee creamers or sugary add-ins will be found here.

Attempts to gossip about the superiors are sadly hindered as it becomes glaringly obvious that the wall between the coffee room and the Managing Editor's office is paper thin. Daily Prophet staff for decades have come to the not incorrect conclusion that the state of their coffee room is such because of the executive officers' desire to keep them working all day and not slacking off. Though if you were to slack off, the best place to do it might be that couch... rumor has it that if you can survive the springs poking out of it and the possible infestation of bunidmuns, it makes for a half-decent nap spot.

Perhaps the most ironic thing in the room is a small framed embroidered piece on the pockmarked wall (an attempt by a long gone staff member to cheer the place up) which said, "The true way to render ourselves happy is to love our work and find in it our pleasure."

You are here.

Then again I grew up on a beach so the primary things in my closet are shorts and flip flops. I'm still trying to get used to the idea of wearing pants most of the time!" It was definitely going to be different here for Loreali. Going from a warm climate to this much colder one was going to be a challenge indeed. She didn't come prepared with proper clothes. She had only visited England once and that was when she was very young so how was she supposed to know that it rained often!?
Egypt smiled. "I was in the same boat when I first moved here. I had never been to Europe on my own so I got lost all the time. If it hadn't been for my husband I would still be lost on the tube," Nathan had made fun for her constantly for getting lost going home. That was a totally shame in her book. "Well then we really need to make a shopping date. I can show you all the nice places to shop. There is a cute little store called H&M that has the best muggle clothes for the price." Just because she was insanely rich didn't mean she had to spent $400 on a pair of jeans. Having another shopping buddy was certainly making her forget the dismal excuse for coffee she was trying to avoid drinking. Egypt giggled. "Well wearing pants will certainly keep you warm in these parts." Egypt didn't know much about the beach culture. They only vacationed there during the summer. But she grew up in Africa and sometimes wearing a lot of clothes wasn't high on the list of priorities.

"Umm, I would actually know, considering that I too had been hired recently." she said, thinking about what the life style section actually wrote about, to which she turned up empty handed.
James smiled cheekily. "You're pretty like a french woman." He winked and as she began to speak in french, he continued. "Oui, vous parlez tres jolie." He grinned at the translation, "I know a little french." Little was perhaps a exaggeration. James knew how to flatter.. and that was about the extent of his vocabulary. "Really? That's good - there's at least someone in the same boat as me," He told her with a wink.

He was a cocky little thing walking right into the middle of the room to introduce himself. Egypt liked that. "Are you always this bold?" Maybe they could get him to go talk to Ian about the state of the coffee in the room.
Egypt nodded. "My oldest daughter works for the French Ministry." And Egypt loved France. She had named her daughter after its most famous city for Merlin's sake. "I believe I may know a few of your relatives." She did know a few Dubuois' from France though she didn't know if they really were related to her new co-worker.
Turning at the sound of the new voice he smiled mischievously. "I take it I'm one of few? I think the arrangement may work positively in both ways," He told the woman who seemed pleased to see a male.
Hm. Oh the ideas.
"Oh, it's definetely a pleasure to meet you Egypt." He extended his hand and winked. At her question on his bluntness he grinned, "Madam, I've found it works in my favour."

Calendula flushed a deep red at his compliment. She never did well with compliments, not really learning how to actually flirt. Living with only boys in the house didnt help either. Its a wonder how she didnt end up a complete slob who scratched their armpits in public. She face grew redder, and she smiled at him. "Perhaps I could teach you someday." Calendula suggested, her cheeks lightening up a bit. "There's probably much more new employees here, we just have to find them." She said, in an attempt to flirt. Fail. She couldnt flirt for her life.

James smiled at her response to his compliment, "This pretty lady is not accustomed to being complimented?" He asked her teasingly and then shook his head feigning a dissolve, "We must change this, immedietely."
He wondered whether his french was bad or if it was the reoccuring compliments that were making her go such a luscious shade of red. "Perhaps you could. Is my french not up to standard?" He asked curiously and then laughed, "I wouldn't be surprised considering all the years it's been since I lived there."
James grinned at her response and shrugged, "I don't need them, I've got one right here - she's much more interesting." Wink.

Another giggle. "Im afraid so." she said, taking a sip of coffee from her mug. Calendula coughed, spilling out a mouthful of coffee as he continued on. Still coughing, she put down her mug and cleared her throat. "Your french is good, much better than any other french man ive known. " Calendula said, acting as if 2 seconds ago she wasnt choking on coffee because of something he had said.
Her face grew redder, which was strange considering her face was already red from nearly choking on coffee. "But the other employees probably arent as crazy, and certainly you dont want to be seen with a crazy person."

Interesting. "Nice to meet you James, I'm Loreali McCurry." She extended her hand expecting him to shake it or whatever the custom was in this part of the world.

"I think it may as well James," she smiled at him. "Well yes boldness is a great quality but I do believe you are flirting with me James," she told him with a twinkle in her eye.

Egypt returned her attention back to Loreali. "Oh I am always free for a little shopping. After work works just fine for me." There was always time for shopping in her book. "Well skirts are always in season. I think every woman should have at least a pencil skirt in her collection." And that was the truth.

James smiled. "Cute." Watching her take a sip he mimicked and pulled a face. "This stuff is ghast-..You alright?" He frowned slightly as coffee went everywhere. James made an sympathetic face. "Would you like some water? He asked her, taking another sip perhaps because it was just there. "Really? Je ne pense pas ca," He said wondering if he knew anyone whose facial expressions could change so quickly.
"Crazy?" Ahh that explained it. "I don't think you're crazy.. just interesting." Cos normal people are just bland.

James smiled at the female. "Enchanted Loreali. Absolutely enchanted." He took her hand and smiled as he shook it. This job was turning out to be much, much more interesting than he'd first expected.

He loved having this effect on people. He watched with a smile as she blushed and it turned into a grin as she shook his head. "A lady of class I see - nice manicure." He winked at her. Smirking at her comment he nodded, "I'm glad you agree.. I don't like stepping on peope's toes. I prefer it if we all.. get along."

"Im okay." Calendula said, as she let down her mug that was almost empty now. "Ainsi vous sont sŻrement." she smiled at him. And she was right. The only French men she actually knew who actually sounded like a French man was either her father or one of her brothers. She cant remember which one. There was just too many! "Yeah, a bit interesting if you tell me." Calendula muttered, but grinned up at him a few seconds after.

She saw the way he was working the girls in the office and it gave her a tickle. Egypt was used to being flirted with she was a beautiful woman after all, but she still loved her husband with everything she had. However it was still nice to have someone flirting with her. "Thank you James. A like a man that appreciates a properly groomed woman." Far too many women simply let themselves go after they snagged a man and that was just wrong on all sides if you asked her. You should want to look good for the sake of looking good for yourself. "I have a feeling you are going to get along great around here." She winked at him. Hmm, he was really sweet she wondered where Hunter was. She needed someone to defrost her heart a tad and James was just the man to do it. Or Nicoli the poor dear hadn't had a proper date in ages. The matchmaking wheels in Egypt's hear were whirling away at the possibilities.

And she was actually heading outside since Ian was busy at his office, when she noticed someone in the Coffee Room. Actually, many people in there, but one in particular brought her attention to the place.

Yes, Sienna had no idea if she's ever stepped inside this particular room, odds were she never had since she did not like coffee.

So, for the first time ever, Sienna walked inside the much-too-little space, and smiled, "Egypt! I can't believe my eyes, how have you been?!" and why was she in the Daily Prophet? Was she working here again? She needed to check out that list of the new people.

Egypt looked up as someone called her name. "Sienna dear," she smiled standing up and walking over to the taller woman. She embraced her in a warm hug. It had been a year since she last saw her. "I see you have been running a tight ship," she teased. Actually it was Ian running a tight ship, but Egypt didn't like to speak ill of anyone she she just kept her mouth shut on that subject. "I've been good." The last time anyone at the prophet had seen her she was a few months pregnant, but she didn't want to get into what happened with that.

Between smiles and hugs, Sienna's face suddenly fell, "Oh, it's not entirely up to me, you know, Enrico was doing a great job..." speaking of..."...until...by the way, have you heard anything of him?" because the owls haven't been able to find him, his disappearance was like Getti's own disappearance, the only difference is that Mona also left with Getti, and Sienna clearly stayed.

If that's something that happened to every Editor-In-Chief, then she had no problem with Ian leaving the Prophet all of the sudden, as long as he didn't take her with him.

"I haven't heard from him in a while now" to be more precise, since they made Ian in charge of photographers. Interesting.

But the cheerfulness returned, "I'm so glad, the family's all good?" she only knew how Nathan was, since she saw him in the Conference Room recently.

Her small face fell slightly. "No I'm sorry I haven't heard anything about it. You would think we would be able to find him seeing as how we are all journalists." She wasn't trying to be flippant, but Enrico disappearance had everyone a bit shaken. He was highly liked and a nice boss. Such a stark contrast to Ian. She mentally kicked herself for being mean. "The last I heard from him was a card of congratulations on the baby." It had been a sweet card with some chocolate attached. Egypt and Nathan had loved it, but that was almost a year ago that he had owled them that.

She shook her head. Now wasn't the time to be all gloomy about him totally falling off the face of the planet so suddenly. Maybe she would do some curious poking around about it. "Oh yes I am happy as well. Paris is working at the French Ministry now and Willow is finishing up with her stage play in New York. So the children are doing wonderful. And I am so proud of Nathan and his promotion." Ands he really was. She knew he had it in him to do great things, but Nathan liked to fade into the background and keep his head down. Which Egypt didn't mind but she knew if he just let his light shine everyone once in a while someone else would see what she saw in her husband everyday.

Ha. She was right. They were journalists, somehow, and they were known for finding the most hidden secret there was! But they couldn't find Enrico. "True" she said, a bit of a smile on her face, oh, the irony.

But, wait-what? The baby? What baby? Oh! That's right! Egypt had been pregnant when Sienna was promoted. "I can't believe I forgot to ask you...was it a boy or a girl? What name you chose?" she asked, already forgetting about her former Editor-In-Chief.

Sienna was nodding as Egypt spoke of her kids. Time had passed, right? "It's good to hear everyone is doing so great, and yes, well, Nathan deserved it, he's worked so hard" she was, however, a bit more inclined to Tristan, just because that one didn't like Quidditch either, and she knew that.

But, wait-what? The baby? What baby? Oh! That's right! Egypt had been pregnant when Sienna was promoted. "I can't believe I forgot to ask you...was it a boy or a girl? What name you chose?" she asked, already forgetting about her former Editor-In-Chief.

Sienna was nodding as Egypt spoke of her kids. Time had passed, right? "It's good to hear everyone is doing so great, and yes, well, Nathan deserved it, he's worked so hard" she was, however, a bit more inclined to Tristan, just because that one didn't like Quidditch either, and she knew that.
It was rather funny that no one in the DP could find Enrico, but when a wizard didn't want to be found he wasn't found. That was as simple as that. They would have to wait till he sent them a message. "We will hear from him. Don't worry." she told Sienna.

It was nice that the children were doing so well. Egypt was so proud of them, and so was Nathan. But Egypt found more occasions to talk about her children. She was their mother after all. "Yes Nathan really took to this job. I thought he would miss being in the MLES, but he wasn't the sort of man they wanted in that job. Nathan is a gentle soul at that job wanted him to be mean and harsh and he's not like that." Just as Egypt wasn't a good fit to be a judge on the Wizengamot. She had to be too harsh and thats just wasn't her style.

She knew there would be questions, but it still always stopped her heart when they came. The baby. Her baby. Their baby. She was born never to open her brown eyes and see the loving faces of her parents. Egypt swallowed the lump in her throat. "Ricole was a stillborn," she told Sienna holding back the tears that always formed when she talked about the baby. She gave her a small smile.

Sienna nodded. They'll find out, eventually, what was Enrico's situation. And perhaps, what was Getti and Mona's situation as well, but that she didn't care much.

It was a bit odd, though, that gentle soul and Daily Prophet managed to work together so well, but she was now noticing that only Ian was the one who seemed a bit off compared to the rest. "And I'm certainly glad that he enjoys this job so much" not sure if the word was 'enjoy' but at least he was very good at this, "Plus, he really gets along with the Staff, I'm positive all the Layout people like him" and that's a good thing for a boss of the sorts, to be liked, yes?

Oh, no, but she was now regretting to have asked for the baby. "Oh, I didn't know, I'm so sorry, Egypt" she said, as she gave her a little hug. What else could she say? Sienna didn't truly enjoy this sort of things, probably no one did. "I really am" but at least Egypt had many things to occupy her mind with. Job, husband and other kids. Still, it must've been a tough situation.

"I'm so happy to have you back" just to change the subject a bit, "Feel free to walk into my office whenever you want to" it felt nice, 'my office', "I should get moving, though, before Ian notices I'm not here, but I'll be back soon" she said, Ian's office was occupied with Jane, as she could see, and now was the time to leave the Prophet for a moment.

"We'll talk later, yes?" she said, before eyeing Ian's office again, and then exiting the Coffee Room.

The only French men she actually knew who actually sounded like a French man was either her father or one of her brothers. She cant remember which one. There was just too many! "Yeah, a bit interesting if you tell me." Calendula muttered, but grinned up at him a few seconds after.
James nodded sincerely. She didn't look it. "Merci." Cos he didn't actually have any clue what she'd just said. He smirked when she seemed to find his comment amusing, "I like interesting."

"Thank you James. A like a man that appreciates a properly groomed woman." Far too many women simply let themselves go after they snagged a man and that was just wrong on all sides if you asked her. You should want to look good for the sake of looking good for yourself. "I have a feeling you are going to get along great around here." She winked at him. Hmm, he was really sweet she wondered where Hunter was. She needed someone to defrost her heart a tad and James was just the man to do it. Or Nicoli the poor dear hadn't had a proper date in ages. The matchmaking wheels in Egypt's hear were whirling away at the possibilities.
James grinned as the woman positively glowed at the attention. "Your welcome. A man should always properly appreciate a woman. I learnt that for myself," Yes. Those ex-girlfriends sure did get catty when they were dumped over muggle text. "Really? Swell. I do like this place already," He winked at her and smiled.

He was so trying to play her and Egypt knew it but still it was nice to play along with him. It was just easy going fun. "Well I am sure that was a hard earned lesson James," she told him softly. "This is a nice place to work once you get over the coffee." she giggled. "Why don't you join me and my husband for drinks after work at the Leaky Cauldron?" she offered. Nathan was always up for a nice drink and Egypt could always grab some water and cookies.

Smiling, Calendula said translating, "So you are, surely." She was used to translating, for sometimes she got carried away with her French heritage and would babble away to someone in her native tongue when they didn't even know what bonjour meant, let alone a full lecture in french. "Well interesting is an understatement for mwah."

James grinned, "T'was. But useful, one can never be too well-mannered." Huh. Couuuugh.
"The coffee?" James looked down at the untouched browny liquid and wilted internally. He could not live without good coffee! GASPETH.
"Not good coffee?" He mumbled, pouting. How lame.
At her offer, the reporter attempted a half smile. Drinks with her husband?
"You're married?" Aw, that ruined all his fun. "Why are the pretty ones always taken? James said grinning but really he was hell scared her husband was some tall, butch man that'd squash him like a fly. Naww.. why was he a wimp!?
"Er.. sure he wouldn't mind?" Translated as: Will he kill me if I'm with you?

Calendula seemed unperturbed at his lack of lingual skills and James felt a little bit less sorry for himself. So he'd never listened in French. Big deal.
"Ah, well that makes much more sense. I think I'll stop pretending I speak French. Hasn't worked out so well for me, has it?" He smirked and twirled the liquid around in his cup. He didn't want to taste it lest it be bad. If there was one thing he couldn't hack it was coffee.. and also being pulverised by husbands. >.<
"I think you just need to let people get to know you." He shrugged and set the coffee down. "Which school did you go to?" He asked casually.

Toxic sludge would have been better than the coffee from that pot. "I will be bringing in the coffee from now on, but just stay away from it today. There is a lovely shop around the corner if you want to grab a cup on your lunch break." she advised him. It was crazy to think that creative types like them could survive without a proper cup of coffee. She smiled and nodded yes. "Yes I'm a happily married woman, with 7 children." She resisted the urge to dig in her purse for her photo album of the children. She could him later if he really wanted to see. "Well actually I took him if you want to get technical." she teased. Nathan wouldn't have made the first move. Though Egypt had to be pumped up by her sisters. She giggled. "Nathan mind a drink? I highly doubt it." He must not have met Nathan yet to ask such a question. "Oh don't worry Nathan isn't a jealous bully like that." she assured him.

"You could easily full someone, hell, you fooled me for a second there." grinned Calendula. Her face scrunched up as she sneezed. Calendula took the empty cup she had and muttered the charm for instant coffee. Wasnt the best, but it was better than the coffee that made the coffee room an unfriendly place. Aww, boo, no coffee. =(
Calendula smiled. She wasnt too shy around people, alone around guys was she a bit nervous but usually her witty side would rise to the surface once she got to know them. "Errrmmm, the FFWS." Atleast she thought it was that. Hah, thank you memory for being so kind as to forget the own wizarding school you went to.

Coffee? Lunch break? James was there. "Where exactly?" He asked trying to sound casual. Lest he run out right now and sprint to the cafe.

Or not.

James' face seemed to become increasingly despondent as she added that she also had 7 children. SEVEN children? "When did you manage seven?" He spluttered. She looked.. his age. James hadn't thought about getting a pet fish let alone fathering children!?!
He didn't even register her comment about who asked who out or whatever as his mind was still reeling from what she'd told him. SEVEN children. James tried to quell the nausea. "Seven.." He mumbled meekly and gulped the coffee down to try and calm himself. Gagging at the taste, he spat it back in his cup and coughed alarmingly. "What. Is. THAT?!" That wasn't coffee.. that wasn't anything that resembled coffee ! That wasn't even the instant below par grind the muggle's tried to pass off as a decent cuppa.
Still hiccoughing he nodded at the suggestion of drinks, "Yes, yes, yes. Please. I think I need a good shot or firewhiskey after that stuff.. or two."
Her comment about her husband made him groan, "Madam, that's what they all say. Black eyes don't suit my complexion. Seriously."
Turning to Calendula, he tried to swallow away that vile flavour on his tongue. Blah. Disgusting.
"Really?" He asked weakly, his eyes watering from the lingering taste. "Ha, a frenchman.. who would've thought?" Yeah.. *cough*
Her acronym for her school helped him zilch. Setting the foul liquid down on the table, he vanquished it with his hand and refilled it with water, gulping it down before he spoke, "And what's that exactly? FFT or whatever.. I'm not familiar with the abbreviation."

"Ohh yeah." said Calendula, forgetting that most people wouldnt even know the acronym was anyways. "France's Finest Wizarding School." Calendula said. "Its held in Paris." she added. It was generally a long ride from the train station held in her hometown to the Wizarding school. It wasnt too different from Beaxbatons though, and it was both boys and girls, which wasnt how it went for Beaxbatons.
