Exclamation Training & Trial Room
astronomizzle ♧ gryffinDORK | & the rest is drag ♣ #badluckDerf




The training and trial room on level 3 is a large space set aside for employees of the Accidents and Catastrophes department in order to continually work on their skills, or trial some experimental charms for assessment and tweaking purposes. While the room was originally charmed to behave much like the Room of Requirement within Hogwarts, this is no longer the case. Instead the large room is relatively empty, though there is a large pool in one corner for practising water-based charmswork, and some heavy duty crash pads in another corner so that if you are levitating yourself, anyone else, or working with objects that are otherwise breakable, dents and bruises won't be an issue. These crash pads are also useful for those who wish to duel as part of their training and trialling.

If you need anything else within this space, you are expected to either provide it yourself or speak with your department head if it is something a little more questionable, large, or dangerous. Many muggle items are available in storage for charmswork (including a few automobiles), and you may indeed find some items within the storage cupboard on the other side of the department.

While this room is intended for use primarily by level 3 employees, those who work in other departments may make use of this space with a written request and approval from Aron Ashburry-Hawthorne, Accidents and Catastrophes Department Head.

If YOU want to make use of this thread for RPing you are more than welcome to! A&C employees do not need to ask permission to RP here, and are encouraged to do so regularly to work on their character's skills. If you're not part of A&C please send sweetpinkpixie a PM or VM or have your character make a request to use this space IC, you'll likely be approved but I'd like to keep track of who is in here, and the reasons for it too.

Sometimes, a particular training scenario may be provided for A&C employees to work on. An announcement will be made whenever these are happening.

As usual all Site Rules apply at all times.

Arriving about an hour after he had sent Ursula to do some of the initial set up, Aron strolled over towards the refreshment table covered in white porcelain tea cups filled with a rather delicious smelling brew. "Huh, she was right, that DOES smell...divine," he chuckled as he picked up one for himself. There was a small tray of lemon cookies to go with them as well, but he refrained from nibbling on any of those. Chances were that the volunteers would need those more than he would considering...things.

Checking the side of the table to make sure the rest of the training supplies were present, Aron set his tea down and counted the shape and color cards while waiting for his employees to arrive.

Hadley had noticed the newest bulletin pinned to the bulletin board on level four. She had stood there reading it, not sure whether she should come or not. After all, she had only just returned from leave. Shouldn't she be doing her own work? But… she did need the extra money. There was only so much inheritance money she had left, and she didn't want to be spending it all. She did need money to live, after all.

She took note that she was requested to present to level three - the Training and Trial room. After much debating with herself on the way there, Hadley suddenly found herself standing in front of said room. She peered around nervously. Should she wait outside? Walk in? Ask someone? No, she was a grown woman. She entered the room.

Mmm, it smelled divine. Her stomach rumbled. She had forgotten to eat today, so nervous about her first day back. The room was empty, besides one man she had not yet met. She looked at him nervously; he looked very official.

"Hi, I'm… here as a volunteer," she said, suddenly feeling locked in. Volunteer. "I'm Hadley Willowgrass from the Department of Magical Creatures," she said, introducing herself.

Out of the corner of her eye, she managed to eye off the refreshment table. Oh, maybe there was tea! Would it be rude for her to help herself?

Looking up from his card counting, Aron offered the woman a casually salute as she entered and introduced himself. Creatures? Merlin help him. At least she didn't seem as loud and obnoxious as the other honking daffodils in that department. "Thank you for coming," he greeted. "Aron Ashburry-Hawthorne, Magical Accidents and Catastrophes Department Head...but Aron will do just fine. Please, help yourself to some of the tea and cookies while waiting." She'll be needed it all at some point or another.

Having your memory tampered with could really tucker a person out.

Was that a salute? Hadley's mouth twitched up into a smile. How formal.

She nodded once, "No, thank you for the opportunity," she said, glad to be able to put herself out there, as frightening as it actually was. Aron. So, he was official; department head. Quite unlike Harmony, though. "Nice to meet you Aron," she said, and was excited to be offered the refreshment table. She couldn't jump up and down though, that would be inappropriate.

She poured herself a cup of tea and piled three cookies onto her plate. They were delicious, and she was famished. She ate the lot, drank her tea, then poured another cup.

Extra pay AND free cookies?! William was in. He didn't care how ominous and sliiiiiiiightly vague the work board posting about this activity was because he needed the pay. So hands in his pockets, the tall dragon dude wandered into the training session and gave the A&C guy (Aron, right?) a 'sup' chin nod.

"M'name's William Williamson, from Creatures," he introduced himself casually, catching the tail end of whatever the A&C head was saying to the lady in front of him. Oh, was she from Creatures too? Cool beans. They just had such a team of go-getters on level four, was he right? Right. Willy made a beeline for the tea cups and most importantly, the cookies.

"Hello," he nodded to the other Creatures person standing there and then took a noisy sip of tea. Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip siiiiiip SLUUURP!

Someone rather yummy looking walked in, and Hadley found herself chastising herself at what she just thought.

William Williamson. Yes, she'd heard of him. He was from the Creatures department too, but she didn't know what he did. She was totally out of the loop. Not been formally, or informally, introduced, but she found herself sipping her second cup of tea, watching him. Was there anything else to look at?

She went to smile and say hello back, but he was being so NOISY! It took her a brief pause to recompose, "H-hello," she said back, biting her tongue so she wouldn't giggle out loud.

It took a moment, but William did catch on to how noisily he was slurping his tea, and then a moment after that his manners kicked in. "Excuse me," he declared, lowering his teacup from his mouth almost comically, and offering the other Creatures person a grin. "You work on level four too? What's your name?"

He even extended a hand for her to shake. "I don't think I've seen you around much!" Which was surprising, because he was ALWAYS there. It would be nice to have another person besides Ember always in the office though.

Hadley couldn't hold it in, she let out a loud laugh. A bit of comic relief to break the ice, that was always helpful. She waved her hand, dismissively, "No, it's fine," she said, grinning back.

"Yes, yes I do. I'm Hadley. Hadley Willowgrass," she said, looking at his hand briefly before taking it in her own hand and giving it a small squeeze. She shook her head and looked to her feet quickly. "I've ah, been away on leave for a while," she said, "Travelling for work, actually. "What does your role entail?" she enquired.

Good, he'd gotten her to laugh. Another successful day in WWW's mind.

"Hadley Willowgrass," he repeated, shaking her hand firmly but warmly. A lot of Creatures people had cool names... Ember Brighten, Harmony Skylark, January Pennifold... William was starting to think his name was one of the more boring ones! Her traveling made sense though, as to why she wasn't around, though Willy did pick up on her looking down as she answered that...

Of course, he'd love to talk about what he did for their department! "I work with the dragons," William answered brightly. "I'm the Head Dragon Researcher, which doesn't involve as much time in the field as it might seem." He chuckled. "Just recently we taught a seminar on the local dragons at Gringotts though!" So that was fun. William vaguely wondered if volunteering to lose him memory today would be fun too...?

Ohh, dragons indeed. She held her gaze steadily at his eyes, not trusting her eyes if she let them wander. But those arms must be all muscly… No, don't look. "Wow, that sounds dangerous," she said, excitedly. Spirits and Poltergeists were one thing… I mean sure, heavy things had been thrown at her head before, but it was nothing compared to a dragon! Oh, yes, Harmony had mentioned the Gringotts seminar. "And how did the seminar go?" she asked, interested.

The day before the notice had gone up on the notice board about Aron needing volunteers to help train and enhance the skills of the departments’ obliviators, healers among others. Having a light day as it looked and not being on call Sophie headed into the training room to check things out. Passing two unfamiliar faces but definitely ministry employees (Hadley) and (William) Sophie shot them quick smiles and 'Hi' waves.

Nearing her boss and the cookies and tea Sophie said "Hi Aron. I heard you needed volunteers for the training session? I'm volunteering." Never mind what the volunteers would be needed to do. It was all for a good purpose after all.

Emmalee made her way into the training room on level three, interested by perhaps a little hesitant. There was a heavy implication, she thought, in the notice that their memories would really be what was being volunteered and she wasn't entirely comfortable with idea of someone toying with them. Even for practice.

But who didn't like bump in their paycheck? And besides, she felt like she owed it to Aron for bringing such an interesting problem to her in the greenhouses. So she was here, hair tucked into a low bun, hands in her pockets, wondering just exactly she's volunteered herself for.

She nodded to the others gathered (Hadley, William) and approached Aron and Sophie. "I am here to volunteer," she said to the Head, before turning to Sophie. "Emmalee Quinn, Environmental Regulation and Protection," she offered by way of introduction and extending her hand.

While she hardly thought she needed more training for her job, she didn't particularly want to turn down the opportunity of having a free test subject either. Then again, technically, they weren't free she supposed. The volunteers were being paid weren't they? It just wasn't coming from her own pockets though, so it made the educational practices that much sweeter and hard to turn down. Besides, she was still the newbie in the department, so she was obligated to show up.

"Hey Soph," she grinned, leaning around the woman to grab a cookie for herself. It was nice, having plenty of people to show up for the volunteer mind meddling and all, only two of which she really knew. Sophie and her boss.

"Sir," Hello to you, yes, good day.

Popping one of the cookies in his mouth, entirely forgetting the cup of tea he had selected for himself a moment earlier, he watched as the woman from Creatures helped herself. "Our receptionist just picked up a new blend," he said, forcing some sort of small talk while waiting. "Apparently went for a premium...or something."

First the best coffee in the Ministry and now the best tea? Not exactly the best things to be smug about, but he would take it.

And then someone else entered, also from Creatures. Only this one Aron knew...sort of. They had talked at some Ministry function previously...maybe. Either way, the bloke's face was familiar as was the name - but mostly thanks to Seren. "William," he greeted with a small nod.

While the pair had their conversation, Aron tapped his foot against the ground and eyed the door when Sophie entered. "Ah, thanks for coming," he smiled at his employee. Derek was probably pleased that, at least for the hour or two she was in here, he had the lab to himself. "How are you and Derek getting along? Oh, help yourself to some tea and cookies."

The next person to enter brought a faint smile to the department head's chiseled features. "Good to see you again, Emmalee," he nodded to the woman as he gestured towards the refreshments. "Two for two on assisting my department." He approved, obviously. Finally another woman who was good in his books - the other one being Emily.

Aron gave a casually salute towards Margaret....Mary...Margaret...one of those when the Obliviator entered. He also added a look that read 'no funny business' in her general direction before chuckling at the 'sir'. Sure, why not. She could call him that.

Oh, and she was welcome to tea and things if she wanted.

"We'll just wait a bit longer before we get started," he announced after checking his watch. And just one more cookie. Okay two.

Ohh, dragons indeed. She held her gaze steadily at his eyes, not trusting her eyes if she let them wander. But those arms must be all muscly… No, don't look. "Wow, that sounds dangerous," she said, excitedly. Spirits and Poltergeists were one thing… I mean sure, heavy things had been thrown at her head before, but it was nothing compared to a dragon! Oh, yes, Harmony had mentioned the Gringotts seminar. "And how did the seminar go?" she asked, interested.
"William, yeah. William Williamson. You can call me Willy or Will though, whichever tickles your fancy." He grinned easily at her again, since Miss Willowgrass seemed like an easy person to talk to. Plus she had pretty eyes...er...eye contact. Yeah.

'Sounds dangerous' were magic words to the dragon dude's ears. "Oh you know, I got a few burns here and there, but nothing I couldn't handle after nearly 10 years at the Romanian reservation." He crossed his muscley arms over his now puffed-out chest with a confident nod. "The seminar was great, I thought. Some students had their eyes opened to just how difficult and yet rewarding working with dragons is. Others... well, let's just say they changed their minds about the field."

He chuckled and glanced over at Aron, who was announcing that they had a few more minutes before beginning. Cool. He was getting to know someone from his department technically outside of the department! "So which division are you in, Hadley?"

Emmalee offered a small smile as she reached for a cup of tea. "It was such an interesting puzzle you brought me, I rather thought I owed you a favor." which was why she had decided to come. It was those sort of unexpected projects that had her leaving her private greenhouse gig to come work at the ministry in the first place. And it had certainly paid off.

Sipping the tea, she looked to both Aron and the woman who had entered and addressed him as sir. "I'm sorry if this seems.." what was the word... "impolite, but there's little risk to this, right? I quite like my memories." And, she reasoned, Bryce wouldn't exactly be happy if his senior botanist suddenly couldn't recall how to do her job. And there were those recent, personal memories she was also rather eager to hold on to.

With a rather innocent look, her gaze lingered on Aron for a moment, because goodness she had no idea why she received that look from him what har har har, before turning towards the rather concerned sounding woman, mid-bite into her cookie. She was one of their volunteers? Did they have to be so... not unattractive?

"Very little," she agreed promptly with a winsome smile, picking up a cup of tea to wash down the cookie with. "You need not worry at all, or feel as if your concerns are impolite for that matter." Right, Aron? Was that the right answer?

First the best coffee in the Ministry and now the best tea? Not exactly the best things to be smug about, but he would take it.

And then someone else entered, also from Creatures. Only this one Aron knew...sort of. They had talked at some Ministry function previously...maybe. Either way, the bloke's face was familiar as was the name - but mostly thanks to Seren. "William," he greeted with a small nod.

While the pair had their conversation, Aron tapped his foot against the ground and eyed the door when Sophie entered. "Ah, thanks for coming," he smiled at his employee. Derek was probably pleased that, at least for the hour or two she was in here, he had the lab to himself. "How are you and Derek getting along? Oh, help yourself to some tea and cookies."

The next person to enter brought a faint smile to the department head's chiseled features. "Good to see you again, Emmalee," he nodded to the woman as he gestured towards the refreshments. "Two for two on assisting my department." He approved, obviously. Finally another woman who was good in his books - the other one being Emily.

Aron gave a casually salute towards Margaret....Mary...Margaret...one of those when the Obliviator entered. He also added a look that read 'no funny business' in her general direction before chuckling at the 'sir'. Sure, why not. She could call him that.

Oh, and she was welcome to tea and things if she wanted.

"We'll just wait a bit longer before we get started," he announced after checking his watch. And just one more cookie. Okay two.

Mmm, premium tea indeed! "Well, it…" she said, taking a sip, "Definitely tastes better than some of the other teas I've had," she didn't want to add that she might want to take some of it home.

'Sounds dangerous' were magic words to the dragon dude's ears. "Oh you know, I got a few burns here and there, but nothing I couldn't handle after nearly 10 years at the Romanian reservation." He crossed his muscley arms over his now puffed-out chest with a confident nod. "The seminar was great, I thought. Some students had their eyes opened to just how difficult and yet rewarding working with dragons is. Others... well, let's just say they changed their minds about the field."

He chuckled and glanced over at Aron, who was announcing that they had a few more minutes before beginning. Cool. He was getting to know someone from his department technically outside of the department! "So which division are you in, Hadley?"
She nodded, "Lots of choices," she said lightly, thinking she liked Will the best. It definitely tickled her fancy.

She listened intently as he spoke of his experiences with dragons, and the seminar. Burns, he said? Her eyes widened as he spoke of them. "Ouch," she remarked, yep, no way she would be able to tolerate a burn. Ouch. "How bad were the burns?" she asked, interested at how fiery the dragons actually were. 10 years, "Wow, so you've had a lot of experience with dragons, then!" He must be some kind of… dragon expert. Oh, she delighted to herself as he crossed his arms. She glanced at them, then immediately tore her eyes back up to his. The muscles were far too easy on the eyes for Hadley. Yep. "Well I'm glad it was a success. I suppose most people don't really know what the job entails." She certainly didn't, it was a bit of an eye-opener to her. Here she was writing a book on communicating with spirits, thinking the worst she did was stay in a house with a few spirits and poltergeists, meanwhile there was this hunk dragon dude getting burned by dragons!

She sipped her tea some more, quietly, and spoke about her job. "I'm in the spirits division. I'm a spirit liaison officer, basically I've been working on writing a book for the public about how to communicate with ghosts, specifically the newly departed, and now I'm going to add a section on poltergeists too. Misunderstood spirits, they are." All they wanted was some attention. A lot of attention. Someone to joke around with, but people were often too scared and the poltergeists got a little too excited with tormenting people. "I was actually away so I could research interactions with ghosts and poltergeists." She had collected a lot of information, too, which she was… looking forward to going through, organising and editing.

Sophie was going to try and get more information out of Aron about what this training was going to involve when a women with her tucked back in a low bun approached them. Shaking the woman’s extended hand with a warm smile pursing her lips Sophie said. "It's a pleasure to meet you Emmalee. I'm Sophie Connolly. I work in Accidents & Catastrophes."

"So are you as nervous as I am to see what we are volunteering ourselves for?" Sophie wondered. Hopefully whatever they were going to do wouldn’t be dangerous.

"Hey Marg," Sophie greeted excitedly as her new colleague and friend stepped into the training room. "I didn’t know you were planning to volunteer for this too?" Or was Margaret one of the ones Aron had arranged this training session for? It was possible. Right this minute she didn't remember where Margaret worked but she knew it wasn’t in her division.

Turning to Aron she paused for a second before responding quietly choosing her words since they had company."We are getting to know each other." Sophie said. "He is letting me help out with the mutant’s case." Fidget. If they talked more about Derek she’d say that she thought he was a little weird in more than one respect. Helping herself to the some tea and cookies she asked "Do you expect people to come from all departments?" As in was their training room big enough for whatever Aron had planned?

Turning the handle, he pulled open the door and gestured for her to make her exit.

"Be right behind you. Just down the hall third door on the left."
It figured he would have enjoyed the joke as much as she did. The problem with that guy was that he was far too easy to mess with. You think he'd realize at some point that his reactions were what compelled her to continue. "I'm brilliant at separating work from pleasure, you'll never even notice us, YATI's honour." And it was true, there were these well defined and very clear lines regarding workplace conduct--public conduct really and Alexa didn't blur or cross them....much to Rhydian's displeasure.

Now then...third door on the left. Why did he think she was good at directions? She'd never really been keen on that, always a wanderer til she found where she was going but with him right behind her it lessened the likelihood she'd circle the Department a couple times--that and she'd done maybe a million patrols on this level already.

"Fancy Training place you got here. Not nearly as life threatening as ours but interesting all the same." Oh hey a pool. Were they going swimming? Could he go swimming while she watched? Yes?

Never even notice. What an oxymoron when put in the same context as this particular YATI. Still, he chuckled politely and rolled with the punches.

"Inherited the best," he mused. He hadn't stepped foot in the level prior to Althea's appointment as department head, but he head heard some horror stories in regards to the decor and overall organization of the joint. "Life threatening? What's Rainey got locked up in your's? Dementors?"

He wouldn't put it past the man. Honestly.

Giving his jeans a tap with his wand, the Australian easily transfigured them into more comfortable workout attire and slipped his boots off. Right, first up was the necessary warm-up. Jumping jacks seemed like the way to go for now to get that heart rate up...but first he needed to center himself, so just a little bit of standing yoga while he listened to the horrors of Magical Law Enforcement.

Alexa's mind found it easy to follow patterns of logic and straightforward trains of thought. Right now, he was changing into more comfortable clothes. She was sparring with him (and usually in comfortable clothes for easy movement due to required training of her own) which meant he'd get hot and sweaty and EVERYONE KNEW that was when shirts went flying. The former Gryffindor would patiently wait him out. It would happen sooner or later.

"Only dementors I saw were the ones at the orientation. What were you lot thinking? There were some unskilled people walking through that maze, one of them might have lost their soul that day." Real dementors, honestly. She had managed fine enough but being law enforcement she had to think about the wider public.

To answer his question though. "It's just different levels of danger for us. Scenery forever changing, never to a safe place with good footing." Rainey seemed to have a thing for run down buildings with floors that collapsed under you while you tried fighting off your attacker. Personal experience maybe. "Keeps things interesting."

Considering they were in this together, she too started some jumping jacks, being sure to keep pace with his. "What are you working on today?" Important question. Was it his stamina? His legs? His chest?
