Default Boating Lake
Made of Awesome | Ern-la the Best-wa | TZ's Apogee



As you walk along the gardens you'll notice a lake just pass the Food Marquee that stretches for approximately half a mile before one would run into the other shore. The water looks welcoming in the afternoon sun and a few swans can be seen gliding along its surface with their famed grace. They aren't the only swans present, something you'll note as you get closer. Along the shore is an assortment of boats in the shape of swans, docked and waiting for riders to step inside.

These boats have been charmed to take you on a trip or two around the lake, depending on what you're in the mood for and they sit as many five in the event your travelling with your own party.

So sit back and enjoy the ride, these boats won't go very fast in the interest of keeping the relaxed atmosphere running throughout the event. Despite this, we ask that you do not go standing in these boats for your own safety (something we don't suspect we'd need to tell any employees of ours). Please do not exceed the boats limits and do not attempt to leave the boat until it comes to a full and complete stop.

You may find yourself coming close to the swans as you too glide across the lake. If you feel so inclined you can attempt to reach for them--so long as they're close enough but we ask that you do not attempt to feed them as this can cause unwanted following.

Finally walking into one of the other areas of the party, Enzo thought that maybe a place away from all the people would do him good. Well maybe it wouldn't but he would like some peace and quiet after talking to his new boss. His new boss that was also new to the Ministry. Enzo didn't think that this party or these people were overwhelming because he had been to parties like these before for Quidditch but not being noticed is something that he isn't used too. He doesn't have to be the center of attention he just wished that someone that new a thing or two about Quidditch would pop up somewhere and know of him. He ran into one person that knew his name but he didn't know hers but that was alright because she knew of him and that was very kind of her to say something.

Enzo looked out at the lake and wondered what would be in store for his time here at the Ministry. What were they to do in the department that he was in? Would he even like it here or in that department? Enzo had a lot of questions that weren't being answered today. He would have to wait until it was time to go to work but for now he was here just watching the calm water.

Mariel hadn't run into either of her new employees yet so she decided to take a walk through the large garden party, just to see if any of the new faces jumped out at her. She really wasn't intending in staying much longer, but she did feel it her duty to welcome her new team, hopefully before they started for their first day. But if she didn't, it wasn't the end of the world. She was going to be going soon.

The brunette wandered out towards the lake, her hand moving subconsciously to her protruding abdomen as she felt a few little kicks. Smiling softly to herself, she stood at the edge of the water looking out at the swans swimming nearby. It was really peaceful and beautiful out here. Quiet too as not many had ventured out this way.. though she did notice someone not far from her.

Green eyes glanced in the direction of the man as she wondered for a moment if he could possibly be the man she placed into Patents, before realizing he appeared very familiar. It took her a moment as she tilted her head to look at him before she realized who he was. She had spent a lot of time with the Quidditch teams in the British and Irish league when she worked in regulations, so she was acquainted with quite a few of the players, having to visit their games and practices for work-related reasons, and she was sure he had played with one of the teams. "Enzo, isn't it?" she began, looking at him quizzically. Perhaps he'd remember her from her former job, at least by sight if not by name. "You played for.." She searched her mind a moment, "Puddlemere, yes? What are you doing at a Ministry function?" Had he gotten a job with the Ministry? That was news to her that he had retired from professional Quidditch, but that seemed the only logical reason.

Vincent was wandering around with a slight sigh. He checked his clock, yeah he was late and he'd have to hear Robbie gripe about it during their next practice but he might as well just miss the entire practice if he was going to be late. He glanced over and saw another man who didn't look too far off from his own age. The 23 year old sighed slightly, not sure if making friends was a good idea at the moment. Yeah he wanted to be here and make friends, but at any moment he would have to quit and people would have to be heartbroken because they'd never see him again. So the debate here was either let people know how amazing he was and have them all miss him when he was gone, or... Well, just have no one know him. He sighed and decided he might as well talk, not like he had anything better to do.

"Hey, there." He went up to the new guy and nodded, "You new around or something?" This seemed to be the year of people his age actually started working that the Ministry, "I'm Vincent." And don't try to shorten it dud... Vince was only for his bandmates or for their groupies.

Hands stuffed in his pockets, Legend allowed his gaze to wander on people as as they walked around the beautiful area that was set up for the meeting. He wasn't on duty or anything. At least not officially. Being part of the MLE always meant that he had to be aware, but no, he wasn't working. However the blond still stood by the lake, watching, and not entirely sure why he was here in the first place.

This whole day was about greeting old friends and meeting new ones. But he didn't really talk to anyone out of the MLE. And he wasn't exactly up for making new friends. Not today at least. The idea just didn't appeal to him, mostly because....it sounded difficult. And almost pointless.

Eyes flickering back to the boats he sighed and stood up a bit straighter. Who would have thought that Legend Chosen would have been one for solitude?

Back to work! Which meant more money to be made working for that hottie of a boss she had. Not that Alani hadn't enjoyed her vacation time, but she did miss things like a full fridge of food and not having so much family over. That apartment was only so big, honestly.

And what a better way to celebrate being back at work than a nice party? She couldn't think of one. The red head sauntered through the place, speaking greetings to those she knew and snatching up a plate of what looked to be mini cakes when she had the chance.

Now all she needed was some entertainment...

...... in the form of a tall blonde man.

"If I let you ride in my boat with me," She made her way to his side, finishing off a pastry thingy. "Are you gonna try and eat all my food?" He was known for such things.

She searched her mind a moment, "Puddlemere, yes? What are you doing at a Ministry function?" Had he gotten a job with the Ministry? That was news to her that he had retired from professional Quidditch, but that seemed the only logical reason.
Nature was a beautiful thing, it really made Enzo feel calm and happy. Even though he didn't want to be here right now just looking at the water, the boats and trees just made him fell a lot better than he already was feeling. Enzo thought about his childhood home in America when his mother father had first split up, he was only five years old at the time and his sister was two years old. He didn't know what was going on with his family only that his mother had stayed at their townhouse in London. That was the first time he had ever been to America. There was this lovely lake house that his father had bought, he loved that place. With everything that was happening at the time he could just go and sit by the lake and read a book and escape into a different world.

Enzo took his gaze and looked up at the woman that had arrived next to him. She looked familiar to him but he couldn't figure out what her name was. The twenty-nine year old chuckled softly. "That's me. I got my professional start on the American team the Fitchburg Finches." That was almost twelve years ago back when he was eighteen. He would give anything to be back there again. He had learned a lot about Quidditch while he was at Hogwarts and playing but playing on a professional team was far different and the greatest part of his life. He had learned so much from being there. "Well I retired a little over a year ago and traveled the world. Now I'm hear for a job. I tried to get into the Games and Sports department but there were no openings for me so now I'm here about to work for Magical Transportation." Lets see how the first month goes in that department.

Enzo nodded and looked at the man. "Hello." Nature was a healing power, really. He should have gone here before. The grumpiness had seemed to somewhat pass. "Is it that obvious that I'm new here?" Enzo let out a chuckle. "I'm Enzo. Nice to meet you Vincent." Try to make friends. Try to make friends. So far so good. The thing about Enzo was he never was good at making friends but when he did they would last a lifetime.

Boats and more people and more boats but this time rocking. Legend raised his hand and scratched his head. Surely time would go by faster if he were actually talking to people.

Ooor eating.

Eating sounded better. Eating could lead to talking after all, but mostly it just lead to eating, and nothing was wrong with that.

He turned just as a familiar figure with bright red hair approached. "Well...not all of it." He reached for a pastry and took a bite. "Sup, 'lani?"

Or at least he had ever since he and Rachel had split up, "But I wouldn't say it's obvious, just... Never seen you before." Then again in the past three years Vincent was hardly ever there either, but he had just reasons! His band had to come first and all of their gigs were just amazing for him... That always would trump the boring desk job he had here. All he did was try to come up with new reasons for things to float anyways... And that really was just dull. He looked at the guy and shrugged, "Though it'll probably be rare that you see me hanging around." He shrugged, "I'm a pretty busy guy, after all."

"Auror's stealing my food, that's what's up." She swatted at the air where his hand had been and took a cautious step back. "Why are you not in a boat yet, Chosen One?" Waiting for her, obviously. "Come on, I might be willing to share in a giant swan."

Alani popped one into her mouth, and started off for a boat, expecting him to follow.

A smile broke out on his face as Legend chewed, actually savouring the taste of the pastry in his mouth for once. "You gotta feed the people that protect you." Yup. Auror stealing food. It was totally legit considering the fact that Aspen did it to him all the time!

Or had.

Before her absence, in which suddenly, it felt strange to still find his sandwiches in his pocket. His eyes flickered toward the boat. There had been zero plans of actually getting on one but if the redhead was offering, riding the boat actually seemed like more fun then standing there people watching. Not hesitating he turned and quickly followed after her. "I guess you can go in first since it's ladies first and all that. I'll hold your plate while you get in." Heheh.

Enzo looked at the man and then back out at the calming water. Playing a professional Quidditch mat was on his mind right now. It had only been a little over a year and he was losing him mind over this. He didn't know what to do with himself. He was glad that he had gotten to travel around the world last year at his own leisure but now that he was done with that he couldn't help but think about Quidditch more often that he did in the last year. "I am new and I am out of my comfort zone here." No sense in lying about him feeling out of place. "I'm sure people around these parks haven't see that many people twice in the Ministry unless you work in the same department or go out of your way to see them." Enzo shrugged. He wasn't going to ask the guy what he was busy with because he really didn't give a damn.

There wasn't a lot that could get her away from the marquee, but there were two advantages to declining food.

Even though he didn't want to be here right now just looking at the water, the boats and trees just made him fell a lot better than he already was feeling. Enzo thought about his childhood home in America when his mother father had first split up, he was only five years old at the time and his sister was two years old. He didn't know what was going on with his family only that his mother had stayed at their townhouse in London. That was the first time he had ever been to America. There was this lovely lake house that his father had bought, he loved that place. With everything that was happening at the time he could just go and sit by the lake and read a book and escape into a different world.

Enzo took his gaze and looked up at the woman that had arrived next to him. She looked familiar to him but he couldn't figure out what her name was. The twenty-nine year old chuckled softly. "That's me. I got my professional start on the American team the Fitchburg Finches." That was almost twelve years ago back when he was eighteen. He would give anything to be back there again. He had learned a lot about Quidditch while he was at Hogwarts and playing but playing on a professional team was far different and the greatest part of his life. He had learned so much from being there. "Well I retired a little over a year ago and traveled the world. Now I'm hear for a job. I tried to get into the Games and Sports department but there were no openings for me so now I'm here about to work for Magical Transportation." Lets see how the first month goes in that department.
Mariel's quizzical look relaxed into a soft smile as the man next to her confirmed her thoughts. He was Enzo Abernathy, former player of Puddlemere United. But the Fitchburg part wasn't all that familiar for the brunette. "Sorry," she said with a friendly smile and a small shake of her head. "I'm not all that familiar with the American teams.. the British and Irish League is more my specialty." And some of the other international teams from years ago when she herself had played pro, but that wasn't as much her focus anymore.

So he had retired and the timing would make sense as to why it escaped her notice, not to mention the reason why he was here at a Ministry function. Apparently he was working for the Ministry now.. but what he said next threw her for a minute. "No openings?" Eyebrow raised, she fixed him with a curious look. "Your application did not come across my desk, Mr. Abernathy. If it had, I'm fairly certain I would have offered you a position." Former players often ended up in the Quidditch division of her department, though sometimes elsewhere. But their expertise was usually helpful in Games and Sports. Transportation though.. "I suppose someone in Human Resources saw something in your resume that fit well with Transportation," she added, lips pursed slightly in thought. It was too bad for her though having lost two in Quidditch and only gaining one. She likely could have used him. But maybe Transportation needed the position filled more.. not that she cared about that. Her department needed people too.

Pulling herself from her reverie, she offered the man a small smile to introduce herself as it seemed that he didn't quite place her after all. "Mariel De La Garza," she said, holding her hand out to shake. "I'm the Head of the Department for Magical Games and Sports. What is your position with Transportation? We often work closely with that department.." If it involved brooms, that is. She eyed him up, thinking a moment. She wondered if she could work something out and eventually get him into her department, since he seemed so eager and all.

With the trip to the food marquee behind him, Gavin was willing to conclude that he'd had his fill of people for the day. In the back of his mind, he was aware there were a lot of workers within the Ministry but that number took on a whole different meaning when he could see them piling in with smiles and long conversations that made him wish the ground would swallow him up.

"You can pretend it's whatever you want it to be but it's away from everyone else and allows you some one on one with me. It's a brilliant deal, you have to admit." His first conceited statement of the afternoon, it'd been long coming, even she had to admit that.

"Could change the design if it bothers you that much." But then everyone else would and he wasn't sure the owners would appreciate that. Lead by example Ms. Browne.

The swans were dreadful, could he not see that? It was sickly sweet, which was most certainly not her style, nor his for that matter. Of course, it didn't come as a surprise that Gavin decided to preen his ego somewhat. Was that the first or second time today? Either way, it was a stellar effort to have lasted this long without. "Brilliant indeed," she mused dryly. "And I suppose the boats will help, since I may in fact go weak at the knees if you keep this up." And by this, she was referring to his ever-amazing-looks or something along those lines. Another ego boost for him, not that he needed it.

As for changing the design, well now that was appealing. But she had always endured her hardships, faced them head on, and in the grand scheme of things, this was just a swan shaped boat - it was hardly worth the effort. "I'm confident I'll live," and therefore, no need to kick up a fuss, right?

Emily dropped her hand from Gavin's arm and lightly stepped off the jetty and into one of the boats. It wasn't so bad once she was in it, didn't look as much like a swan from the inside than it had from the outside... she could ignore this now.

Or had.

Before her absence, in which suddenly, it felt strange to still find his sandwiches in his pocket. His eyes flickered toward the boat. There had been zero plans of actually getting on one but if the redhead was offering, riding the boat actually seemed like more fun then standing there people watching. Not hesitating he turned and quickly followed after her. "I guess you can go in first since it's ladies first and all that. I'll hold your plate while you get in." Heheh.
"Wrong, Chosen. You have to pay them. They have to feed themselves." So see? It didn't mean they had to steal, because Alani was very certain that they got paid a whole lot better than she did. If not, then she wanted better paid protection.

Better paid, better fed, better at their job.

She passed by the first two boats, deciding on the third. "I'm not just any lady, Chosen. I'm multi-talented. One of them includes getting into a boat while holding onto food." To prove herself correct, she did JUST THAT.

He was glad that he had gotten to travel around the world last year at his own leisure but now that he was done with that he couldn't help but think about Quidditch more often that he did in the last year. "I am new and I am out of my comfort zone here." No sense in lying about him feeling out of place. "I'm sure people around these parks haven't see that many people twice in the Ministry unless you work in the same department or go out of your way to see them." Enzo shrugged. He wasn't going to ask the guy what he was busy with because he really didn't give a damn.
“What did you do before that would make this place seem different?” Vincent looked at him, unless he was use to just being out like himself that didn’t really make sense to him. Hitting the road with his band definitely made this little desk job seem evil at times. So was this guy a performer like himself, maybe? It was the best career choice after all… Hard as hell to stay in but if you succeeded you had a few good years of fame. He looked at him and gave a slight nod of agreement, “That is true...” He’d already met several people that he hadn’t known before and they’d worked there just as long as he had.

The smirk had caught up with the earlier arrogance. He'd clearly made a good choice separating himself from the others and deciding on a relaxing boat ride with Emily. Ego boosts made his day...when done right. He wasn't sure how, but Emily had perfected the act and he was satisfied. "Let's hurry you into the boat then." Because you could not simply turn off his brilliant looks. It wasn't possible.

Gavin would have offered her a hand into the boat with it decided she'd live through this ordeal but typical, independent her, she was already helping herself in, leaving nothing for him to do but follow suit. Nothing new.

"You don't think those things will try having a go at the boats do you?" He asked, nodding to the swans in the near distance as he settled in next to her. After that one year with the demon bird flying into their condemned building he didn't much trust anything covered in feathers.

Hurry her into the boat, yes, that was a sound idea. Of course, as much as she disliked the fact that it had to be swans, she was grateful for the break in tedious conversation, and the stares she got when people watched her eat... it was incredibly unbecoming of them. "No need to rush me, Isaacs, I'd hate to think that you're already so wound up about work and stressed to the point where you see urgency in everything we do. Might have to send you to one of those healers for some relaxation if you're not careful." Just to take him down a peg. Dreadful times, but admittedly watching his reactions had been somewhat amusing - even during the worst of it.

Once they were both settled into their cosy seating arrangement, Emily claimed his hand back and laced her fingers together with his. Let he boat ride commence.

The real swans though, now that was something. She'd almost forgotten Gavin's aversion to birds... until now.

...

"Yes, I do," she replied truthfully. There would be no sugar coating it. "If they're used to being fed, then they may display aggression... but it's okay. I'm here to protect you." Did he doubt her?

"I never see the need for urgency and haste with work. That's how errors come about and I'm usually on top of things regardless." He corrected casually. There were times when Gavin displayed urgency, Emily of all people should have known that, but it was never for work. No. The man would never be fussed. "I'm simply being a gentleman, saving you from the swooning damsel in distress bit that might come about as a result of my dashing good looks. Most people I know would have said thank you." Or kissed their boyfriend but you know, however she wanted to react was fine too.

Her fingers entwined in his did little to calm the small panic rising. They were headed out onto a lake filled with potentially demonic birds and if they all decided to tag team, you could only hex so many before you became overwhelmed and gave in to your bitter doom.

His poor face.

"Good thing I already commissioned you for face protection, yeah?" Eyes completely on the birds. To think Emily use to think he was joking about face protection.

"Well if you do both they'll probably love you forever." By probably he meant they would. And that was a really good thing of someone from the MLE loved you. That meant you could basically get away with murder but not get in trouble for it okay?

Well...maybe.

Multi-talneted lady. Okay then....uh...."You're sorta weird." That being said, Legend followed her lead, stepped into the swan and took a seat.
