Default Level One Lobby and Reception




Upon exiting the lifts, you are greeted by a clean, well-lit lobby with a contemporary design. To your right are bathrooms. Straight ahead is a security desk permanently occupied by two members of Ministry security. All visitors and employees must sign in here before proceeding to the reception area; if they are not cleared by security, there is no further access to this floor.

Further into the lobby is the large marble reception desk and a waiting area with a cluster of modern and traditional furniture. Feel free to take a seat, though be sure to check-in with the receptionist first as you will be directed to where you need to go or escorted to your destination if necessary. The lobby's handsomely paneled walls feature paintings from British wizards and Muggles, including the softly snoozing portraits of retired undersecretaries. Accents of blue, gray, and mahogany round out the room, along with pops of green from the fresh potted plants on each end table. While you wait, do not hesitate to hydrate! A narrow marble sideboard with a glass water dispenser and reusable, recyclable cups is located on the right-hand wall.

Behind the reception desk are two open doorways serving as the entry points to this level. The doorway on the left opens onto a long, wide corridor that runs from the Level One Security Desk to the Minister's Office, the Senior Undersecretary's Office, the break room, and several private offices. If you go through the doorway on the right, you will bypass these restricted work areas, and instead find yourself in the open floor plan of the main work areas, the Level One archives, and the recently remodeled conference and meeting rooms.

OOC: The receptionist is currently a witch named Alana Potter. Please do not RP exactly for her, although the NPC security officers are fair game!

He watched her shorting and shuffling before she looked up. Busy little bee wasn't she? Or at least she did a bang up job of pretending. He wasn't really sure how much help she could be in a government that specifically handled magical affairs. Still, if she was surprised to see him, she certainly didn't show it. And her peppiness? well, he couldn't tell if she was genuinely perky or if she was putting on airs for his benefit. If she was, she needn't have been. Perkiness was lost on him.

She was certainly full of questions wasn't she? He didn't feel in the least obligated to answer any of them. Instead he placed the stack of files on top of the counter on Alana's desk and leaned on them with both of his arms. "I'm happy to hear that everyone has been rather accepting of your impairment. You haven't found it to be holding you back at all?" He smiled displaying teeth. Someone with sharp eyes might have noticed the the strange length of some of his teeth or then again, perhaps he just had a funny smile.

She really found so many people interesting at the ministry and she adored getting to know all of them. When she first joined the ministry it was for a purpose, one that she thought she was moving right along with. How many doors could she open, how many opportunities could she prove were available. She had big dreams and a go get them attitude, with of course a bit of humor on the side.

Her smile didn't falter with his question, but her eyes did squint a bit. What was he trying to say? In this day and age someone was still really thinking that way. "Impairment?" She tilted her head curiously, "I'm not sure what you mean. I have nothing holding me back and everyone I work with doesn't seem to care how I do my job as long as I do it."

She looked back at her stack of papers starting to question if that was true, but trying to push it away she looked back up at him, "If you need to make sure of that you can speak to Mr. Fletcher or even Char... The minister and they can tell you the same thing."

Honestly wait until her mother heard about this.

It wasn't his responsibility to make sure that Fletcher's staff was doing their jobs correctly. but it was his responsibility to make sure that everyone that worked for the Ministry of Magic met the requirements to do so. One would think that 'magic' would be a requirement, but no, it apparently wasn't. The woman he was talking to seemed to be proof of that. Or was she?

Her defensiveness caught his attention even as she attempted to mask it in feigned confusion. "I might just do that," he said standing back up and picking up his papers. In fact, he had plenty of questions for Fletcher as well. Which was why he was here. "Is Fletcher in? We have a meeting scheduled."

Taking a deep breath she calmed herself down, maybe he was just asking questions to make small talk. It was really hard sometimes for ice breakers and things when you were new and she wasn't the only one new this year. He was as well. He seemed polite enough and well when she really thought about it maybe it was his MLE background that made him ask such odd questions, but she still kept her guard up knowing some, even in this year, would have an issue with her being a squib. That was her point of being here though, to prove them all wrong.

"He is back in his office. I will go let him know you are here. Would you like some coffee?" Her eyes kept on his as she smiled before moving from her place behind the desk to let Fletcher know he had a visitor.

Tomasz was not stationed at the security desk today, but he did have something he needed to speak to someone about. He did not, however, know who to take the matter to. The Minister for Magic was out of question, Tomasz was a security officer, he could not speak to the Minister. The Minister saw to important matters with important people.

His own Department Head was certainly a viable option, but Tomasz did not know that he would be the right person to speak to about this. The only other person who came to mind was the Senior Undersecretary. As far as Tomasz knew, Kaiser was close to Fletcher. This must mean the man could be trusted, no? Tomasz wasn't sure, but upon impulse, he made his way to the reception area anyway.

Kaiser had looked worse, but he'd definitely looked better too. Rocking up to work almost two hours late, in yesterday's rumpled clothes, and looking suspiciously like he might have caught a few hours sleep on, say, a park bench, uh... kind of had that effect. Maybe a little unexpected, too, given he'd spent the time since he'd been back at work doing everything he could and more in order to fill every possible second with productivity. Something. Anything. Fortunately for him, most days, there was plenty to do. A little less fortunate today.

After signing in at the security checkpoint, and then stopping by the bathroom to splash a little water on his face and run his fingers through his hopelessly messy hair, Kaiser avoided the doorways to the work areas and private offices, and stopped at the reception desk instead. He leaned his folded arms on it, curled his fingers around his elbows.

"Alana?"

"Alana?"

She had been at her desk, but had just dropped a pile of papers to the floor so bending down to the floor to gather them Alana just sat there staring at the mess and thinking about words that she heard, words that she tried to ignore, but words that had hit her hard. She went back to when her twin started showing magic and she didn't, she went back to how her now ex-step dad got a house elf to help her, and she went back to the feelings of never fully feeling good enough. Deciding to hit the problem head on just a year and a half ago she joined the ministry in a new found confidence that she was good enough, she was capable, and she did belong, but since those words, that moment that she was useless in the fight she was having old feelings hit her at random times.

Hearing her name shook her out of the thoughts enough to realize she was still holding the same parchment she had been when the stack fell. Grabbing the rest she popped up knowing the voice. Looking at him though hit her even harder. She had thought about him so much since that day in Charles office, and truth be told she was avoiding him a bit since coming back to work. She could do nothing to help, protect, fight back, no, all she could do was watch as he was hurt, as they all were.

"Hi, Kaiser" trying to be cheerful and professional she set the mess down on the desk she tried not to seem nervous, "Can I help you with something?" Not that she had done a very good job at helping anyway.

"Hey." Kaiser smiled. It could be surprisingly easy to be friendly and cordial when there was need of it, in spite of everything, and how little he really wanted to talk to anyone. Since the battle, he'd been a lot quieter, not speaking unless he absolutely had to - same as was normal for him, just pushed up a gear... or... down a gear - but engaging social mode could be like the flip of a switch. Sometimes. Just like the old days.

"N-... ah... actually, do you know if the Senior Undersecretary is hanging around at the moment?" Not that Kaiser was looking for him, other than to be sure of exactly where he was (he could not, for the life of him, remember anything about today's schedule whatsoever) so he could maybe stay out of sight for just a little bit longer. Fortify. "But I was wondering if you wanted some coffee. Or tea, or anything." Kaiser could bring it to Alana, or they could both go get some - he was in pretty dire need of caffeine himself - if she was anywhere close to her break.

Speaking of, what time was it? Kaiser had checked only minutes ago as he'd passed a clock, but already the information had floated away from him. He tugged up his sleeve slightly to check his watch... except he wasn't wearing one. Uh. Right.

She hoped she could help Kaiser with whatever he needed, but she wondered if she should find someone else if he needed something she couldn't do. "Oh, umm, let me check the schedule. I.. I'm not really sure what he has, he's gotten super busy with everything going on." She rushed over to get the little planner she had been keeping to keep track of things and keep memos that she needed.

"Looks like he is in a meeting for the next hour and then he'll be back in his office. Do you want me to leave a message for you?" Grabbing some parchment and a quill to take down a note she was caught off guard by his next question and the small on her face that appeared might have showed more than she probably wanted. "Coffee? yeah, I.. I could go for coffee."

All the sudden she felt nervous and blushed a bit for feeling that way. She felt like she should be going to get the coffee for him and bringing it back, but he had asked about going to get some. "Where did you want to get some from?"

Conley was tired. His arm still hurt. The burns were bandaged and healing, and thankfully hidden under his layers, but he had come to terms with the fact that he was likely going to have nasty scars for the rest of his life. On top of the burns, though, he had also gotten a small hair-line fracture that, while healed by skele-grow, still ached. He was often tempted to rub it the area to relive the aches, but that only aggravated the burns. It was a vicious cycle and often led to Sachin yelling at him to 'leave it alone!'

Still, it wasn't to compare war-wounds, that brought Conley up to Level 1. Nope, it was the bundle of letters that were tucked under his unburnt arm. And seeing as he wasn't exactly in a hurry to relay the information in the bundles of letters to Surely Stressed and going Gray if not loosing his hair too Acting Minister Fletcher, he decided to stop by and see how Alana was doing. "Bonjour!" he said with a smile. "How are you doing Alana?"

"No rush," Kaiser said, and meant it, as Alana did indeed rush to check for him. Stifling a yawn, he glanced at his wrist again - what do you know, still no watch - before tugging his sleeve all the way down and gripping the cuff tightly in the same hand, doing the same on the other side, and going back to holding his elbows as he leant on the desk. Strange, the little things that made a person feel more in control.

He nodded then, to acknowledge the information, but then quickly stopped and shook it instead. "No, no message. I will see him soon, I'm sure." Without Charles here, though he'd have kept his role as scribe, Kaiser's job as personal assistant might have been a bit up in the air, without anyone to personally assist. But, with Fletcher now Acting Minister, and, as Alana had said, extremely busy, Kaiser's assistance had naturally passed to him. Most days he handled it, but others, like today, the prospect of looking Fletcher in the eye threw him into such a tailspin he thought he might throw up. It would be the same with Charles too, he was under no disillusions there.

Uh. Anyway. Kaiser gave a small smile back in response to Alana's, and straightened up. "Downstairs?" As in, all the way down, on Level Ten. Or anywhere, plenty of options, just maybe not the Level One break room.

The arrival of Mr Singh-Phora brought Kaiser up short and he suddenly shut up completely, as though simply not speaking would help him to go unnoticed. Then again, as someone who was generally adept at staying under the radar, he knew it definitely wouldn't hurt. Letting Alana and the department head have their conversation, Kaiser shot a furtive glance towards the offices.

"It really is no trouble if you want to leave one." Though it didn't seem like he did so Alana placed the parchment aside and slipped her hand up to push some of her hair behind her ear. Downstairs which meant he wanted to walk with her? He was such a good friend or maybe he was just taking pity on her after seeing how worthless she was when danger was around. Biting her lip as she pushed those thoughts away Alana was just about to step out from behind the desk when another person came into view.

"Hello Mr. Singh-Phora, I am doing well." Her eyes shifted between the two men as she wondered how a morning that seemed to start slow just got busy. "Can I help you with something? Are you here for a meeting?" Had she missed a meeting or paperwork? She hoped she wasn't supposed to have the conference room ready. She really felt like she had missed something but wasn't sure exactly what.

Not sure if she should glance at the calendar again, Alana just stood there with her look switching from Kaiser to the department head.

"Oh! Kaiser," how had his missed the bloke? In his defense the man often tried to blend in with the walls go unnoticed when ever he was around. "How have you been?" he gave him a big smile. He hadn't see the man since the Order's meeting in Diagon Alley. "How's the head?" he asked rubbing his own temple in empathy, although in doing so, his own injuries sent a wave of pain down his arm and into his fingertips. He flexed his hand, in an attempt to ease the pain, but really only exasperated the feelings.

He turned back to Alana. "Please, call me Conley." Because while he loved hearing his married name, it felt weird to be mister by people at work. Maybe he was just informal like that. "I didn't have a meeting on the books, but I was hoping to talk to Fletcher for a moment. It won't take long." That might be a lie. He wasn't entirely sure how long his news would take for him to relay to the man, but Alana didn't need to know that. Besides, if she did, there was a good chance she'd tell him Fletcher was busy.

Quickly looking away from the offices, Kaiser's eyes snapped instead to Mr Singh-Phora. "Hello, sir." Blending in with the walls didn't sound too bad right about now, even if he couldn't seem to pin down the exact reasons he was so intent on staying out of the department head's sight, it only... felt important that he did. But he had Mr Singh-Phora's attention now, so Kaiser allowed a smile back. "Good," he said in response to the first question, unsure how true that was, and, "Better," to the second, which wasn't exactly a lie. "Good days and bad. Are you... how are you?"

See? See. Social. Friendly. He could still do it all just fine.

... Even if he did get a little extra twitchy at the new mention of Fletcher, half expecting to see him strolling into the lobby, summoned by the use of his name. It somehow did not seem beyond the realm of possibility, and Kaiser cast a glance back in the direction of the lifts now, just to make sure.

It would be rude to make a quick getaway after he had already invited Alana to come with him, though Kaiser was twitchy enough to be tempted. Inwardly. No actual twitching. He couldn't do that to her though, so he stayed put, willing to be patient until she was free. Maybe (or maybe more than maybe) he didn't actually want to avoid all these people at all.

Or maybe he really did.

Oh. Wait. It occurred to Kaiser that perhaps he should be helping here, standing in to assist Fletcher and all, but would that be taking a task from Alana? Or would that just be his excuse? ... Regardless, he stayed quiet.

"No no, by all means, please continue to stand around and chitchat while there's a hole in my wall," the voice of Fletcher boomed through the group at the desk as the ACTING Minister walked up, though there was a note of amusement in his tone.

He smiled around at the lot, patted Kaiser on the shoulder affectionately, and then moved toward Conley. "Wassup, my compatriot. I'm interested in hearing what you have to say." As ever.

He shot a look back at Alana and Kaiser, winking at the former, and adding, "Just move my ten o'clock back so I can talk to Conley for a moment. Kaiser, did you need me too? You can join us...." He trailed off with a glance toward Conley to see if that was alright.

There were lots of emotions going through Alana at this exact time. Nervousness that Kaiser asked her to get some coffee, excitement about going to get said coffee with a friend, and a bit of anxiety over how everyone was looking at her these days and how she felt about herself working with all the people she wanted to show she could do something she wasn't even sure that she could anymore.

"Okay Mr.... I mean Conley, I can see when he will be around." She went to turn back to the books to pencil him in or see where to have him come back but Fletcher's voice made her jump. "Oh, did you want me to owl someone to fix that? I can get right on that." She watched and realized he might have been joking a bit too late. Her faced turned a bit red as she just nodded to his comment about moving things back. Grabbing her calendar again she made the corrections and sent a memo off.

Oh... did he want to see Kaiser too? Maybe, they wouldn't be going for coffee. She bit her lip and just tried not to look as disappointed as she felt, though she knew she was most likely failing.

"I could bring all of you coffee if you would like me to do that."

Good days and bad days. Ha! That really summed things up didn't it? It seemed that everyone was having those and everyone was dealing with it in their own ways. Personally? He'd been dealing with his by having fairly regular nightmares. But Kaiser and Alana didn't really need to know that now did they? "Good days and bad nights," Conley replied with a small smile. He hoped Kaiser didn't think he was mocking him. It was just too perfect of a phrase not to use it himself.

"No coffee for me Alana. I already have enough problems sleeping without adding caffeine into the mix." And he had even before the fires he had insomnia issues and a one year old at home that still didn't always sleep through the night. Now? He woke feeling like he couldn't breath and his arm feeling like it was still on fire. "But thank you for asking." His eyes passed between Alana and Kaiser and he had the feeling he had interrupted something. So he was grateful when Fletcher appeared.

"News from around the world," he said patting the bundle of letters he was carrying. As for Kaiser joining them? "The more the merrier," Although he was pretty sure that Fletcher probably wasn't going to like what he had to pass along, nor would he likely like the information to get out, but Kaiser had proven to be a rather tight-lipped bloke so Conley wasn't worried.

Funny thing, Kaiser could relate to that all too well. Bad nights. Though, really, there were likely very few people who couldn't say the same at the moment.

At the sound of that particular booming voice, Kaiser could have screamed. In alarm. In frustration. In... uh. Something. Something else too. Guilt? Probably guilt. It was usually guilt. The wall, that hole in the wall. Rationally Kaiser knew it wasn't really a major issue, relatively speaking, and that it was stupid to feel bad about that on top of everything else, but it still nagged at him that he'd been the one to put it there. Irrationally, his temper flared at the tone of Mr Fletcher's voice - was he laughing at him? - at his audacity to show up right when Kaiser was trying to avoid him... only for it to be immediately and entirely assuaged by just a simple pat on the shoulder. From antsy to incensed to sufficiently calmed in roughly three seconds flat.

He was reasonably content to just wait until the Senior Undersecretary and Mr Singh-Phora had moved along to talk about whatever it was they had to discuss, when a single phrase sent him careening away from zen once more.

"I don't need-..." He stopped himself, suddenly, and with great difficulty. The words had come out all too forcefully, ironically without his having much say in the matter. Kaiser diverted his eyes and cleared his throat, as though that was the real culprit, took a breath, told himself to relax, already. He started again like nothing had happened, ignoring his racing pulse. "I was going to go downstairs with Alana." He glanced over at her now, lips twitching into a smile that was supposed to be apologetic but felt all too fixed. And back to his boss. "Unless there's something you, ah..." ... yeah ... "... need."

Also, it would be a lie to say he was not curious about news from around the world, especially connected as he was with a couple of countries in particular. Kaiser glanced at the bundle of letters, then quickly away again.
