Default Work Areas


Department Map

The main work area is a large and open office with colour co-ordinated dividers and desk clusters providing some semblance of order to the chaos of having a whole department in one area. The room is now carpeted in grey throughout and gone are the several distracting rugs that used to sit above. Instead, there are boxes of cushions located near each cluster of desk for employees to use on their chairs should they find them uncomfortable. Some cushions have a picture of your department head, Eliora Dodderidge, on them but she expects them to be treated with respect or even hung on the walls should you so desire. When you walk in through the main doors coming from the reception and foyer, there is a waiting area to one side. If you have visitors they are welcome to sit here, or employees may take a coffee break in this corner. There are plenty of magazines provided, some of them are related to the work we do in the department, and others are personal favourites of Ms. Dodderidge – Achievement in Charming, Transfiguration Today, The Potioneer’s Gazette, The Daily Prophet, Witch Weekly and Teen Witch Weekly.

Directly to your left, you’ll find a table which forms the centre point for part of the Office of Misinformation, in particular the Obliviators and Reminisciators desks. These employees are in and out constantly, so it makes sense they have a nook close to the door doesn’t it? In front of you is a magical photocopier, running entirely on enchantments, and behind that you’ll find the rest of division one’s Office of Misinformation employees (Memory Restoration and Retrieval Bureau and Muggle Worthy Excuse Committee), along with the Invisibility Task Force of division three, tucked away in the corner where they can get some serious work and planning done without too much interruption.

In the far corner you’ll see those busy employees who make up the Spell Reversal Agency and Potion Accident Response Team of division two’s Accidental Magic Reversal Squad, if they happen to be in. They have the smallest desks since they spend just as much time outside of the office, in the lab or in the training room as they do at their desks, if not more.

Finally, tucked away around the corner from the inner corridor, right next to the conference room, you’ll find the members of the Experimental Charms Committee, both Research and Development and Spell Registry folk have plenty of desk space here since their work is as much about the planning as it is about the doing. They might be down the hall in the training and trial room, however, so be sure to head down that way if you’re looking for someone in particular and they don’t seem to be around. It is clear which of these desks once belonged to the current department head as she has left a framed photo of herself in it and also a pyramid tower of her favourite coffee mugs. You’ll do well to not touch, but to post a compliment in the compliment box she has left there. Be kind. She knows your handwriting.

The entire space flows well and is clearly well thought out regarding which divisions are located in proximity to one another, but it is also decorated with brightly coloured plants. There are plenty of protective charms in this work area, to ensure that the furniture won’t be damaged or spoiled by experiments and the like. Above your heads there is a steady flow of ministry interdepartmental memos, purple coloured paper airplanes darting here and there. If it’s for you it will land on your desk, so don’t bother trying to catch them, they’re much too high to simply pluck them out of the air.

Quote:
OOC:
To differentiate which part of the office you are in, put your division or area in the title section so that it’s easier to follow along and play with those you work alongside. Take a look at the map to get your bearings!

All level 3 employees have a desk here to work at (except the Department Head, she has a shrine to herself at her old one) and everyone is welcome to make their own RPs here. What’s your character up to? What are they investigating? There’s always work to be done, make something fun up and see who you can get involved! Your own dramas are welcome too, so feel free to work on personal plots and RPs in here, though be aware that Eliora is a gossip and although she may want to know everything that it happening.. she may scold your character for letting their personal life affect their work levels.

Other Ministry employees are welcome to come and play in here too! After all, Level 3 is perhaps the one department that has business with every other department in the British Ministry.

Eliora was bored. Or...she was pretending that she was bored so that someone could distract her from the pile of paperwork on her desk that she was avoiding. And also her assistant. That she was also avoiding. Eliora knew she needed to ask her a couple of questions about whatever...whatever the thing with Dalton was. Yes, she'd seen them at the orientation event. And honestly, she wanted the gossip. But she couldn't just ASK outright. Could she? Maybe over their morning coffee... Maybe they were just friends. Maybe they were like she and James and there was nothing more to it than friendship and some company.

Was there more to her and James? No, no. That wasn't the issue right now. The issue was that she didn't know if Guilia and Dalton were holding hands outside of work and if she was going to find them canoodling outside her office one day. A GIRL WOMAN NEEDED TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT.

She also needed coffee. Hm.

Five cups would do it.

Eliora used one of the coffee machines in the work areas before going to sit at what used to be her desk when she was at Maddox or Aron's beck and call. The desk she had decorated when receiving her promotion. The desk space covered in photos of her and some of her old favourite mugs. Oh look! There was her 'Mrs. Maddox Quigley' mug! Oh... the mems.

Letícia wasn't sure she would miss teaching bored eighteen year olds who hated their 8am Monday morning class and so far -- well, so far she definitely didn't miss it. She had plans of what she wanted to work on first, of course, but not highly-structured, supervisor-approved, year-long teaching plans that would eventually impact someone's future. Plus, it involved absolutely no exam marking. All in all, this new ministerial job was turning out to be great.

So what if it hadn't even been a week?

Making her way back to her workspace from the training room, she mumbled away to herself in Portuguese. That could always point someone out as weird but voicing notes to herself before actually writing them down on her notepad always worked for her, so she's sticking to it. Even if her new boss happens to be around. With a small smile playing on her lips, the Brazilian woman took a seat at her desk, quill at the ready to write down the results of that particular experiment (too much impact, she was looking for a gust of wind, not a tropical storm). "That desk is very dictator-propaganda of you. I like it." Honestly, tiny eccentricities just made everything better.

"That desk is very dictator-propaganda of you. I like it." Honestly, tiny eccentricities just made everything better.
Briefly, Eliora closed her eyes and began to drink her coffee. Was it egotistical to feel completely at peace in an area that was dedicated to herself? That she had dedicated to herself? Ah, who cared. The point was, that with coffee in hand (and the smell in the air) and a framed photograph of herself looking back at her... Eliora was at home. The same feeling she expected her employees to feel when they sat here and looked at her face and felt her presence. Home. Peace. Happiness.

Sliding one coffee cup onto the desk, Eliora scooped up another of those that was hovering in the air above and behind her and started to drink from it.

The comment that Letícia made left a smile on her face as she looked towards the other woman. "It was mine for almost ten years. It's staying mine. Besides, I know this lot miss having me in here." Hence the pillows dotting around the place with her face on.

"How are you getting on? This lot being good to you?"

You've made it into work on time. You've had your coffee (or are still downing it, hurriedly). You're READY mostly to start your DAY at WORK! Today was going to be a good and productive day!

Or, you know, maybe not.

As you enter your work area, the first thing you notice (once you've recovered from the SMELL) is the way the chairs are suddenly no longer the same nice color as they had been the day before. It soon becomes clear that no, the fabric had not simply been exchanged for ones with a nice polkadot pattern. Some of the greyish white spots were still wet to the touch.

In case you were to TOUCH them. Which is not recommended.

If you're still not entirely sure what had happened, there are a handful of interdepartmental memos at some of the work stations. Memos that had clearly been dropped off by owls.

Along with some other things they'd dropped off. Dropped off. Get it? Like poop.

As Caleb walked in to work, the first thing that hit him was the SMELL. Good Merlin, had someone set off a dungbomb in here? Why did it smell so bad?? The cause became evident as soon as he approached his desk, however, and noticed that the smell had come from...bird droppings??

EWW. GROSS.

Making an absolutely disgusted sound, he took out his wand and began to clean up his desk. Although even after he had vanished away the offending mess, he still didn't quite trust his things to be...sanitized, so he grabbed some good old fashioned muggle cleaning wipes from his desk you never knew when you needed them around here, CLEARLY and wiped everything down a second time. There. Now he might be able to sit at his desk without vomiting.

Yassi had very little business being out and about now that the summer holiday was soon approaching. There was quite a lot to do in terms of preparation for the new cohort of students who would be eager to obtain their apparation licenses. This was typically a source of energy for the thirty-two year old, but as of late there was a large cloud hanging over head on level six.

With news of Kendra's departure, Yasmin found it increasingly more difficult to bring her usual cheer to the office. As such, she made it her prerogative to float around the ministry as much as possible. Though sooner or later she would surely find herself out of excuses to do so.

Fortunately today, she had plenty excuse. Or at least a box full of them. A cardboard box full of plants and excuses. She stepped inside the work area, looking around with bright, hopeful eyes. There must be someone willing to adopt.

Default same timeline as the alarm being raised!

Busy department head was busy busy BUSY.

It had been a long, dull morning of working paperwork and dealing with the in-tray, and Sian had tempered it with a large coffee and the tastiest millionaire's shortbread she'd had in weeks. Now that was done, and she had the opportunity to stretch her legs, she was strolling around the Level Three work areas with some PEP in her STEP, and another coffee in hand, even more weighed down with sugar than the last one.

Everyone was doing what they should be doing, hmMmMM?

Penelope had just been trying to take her lunch break when she heard the news about the Neo-Alliance infiltrators being uncovered, her boss among them. Wow. It was fairly obvious that the Neo-Alliance had taken root in the ministry and infiltrated it to the highest degree, but really, Sian? Penelope really hadn’t pegged her boss as an evil mastermind. Sure, there were some things she didn’t like about her boss like Sian’s gaudy office decorations, but this was on a whole other level of bad. Did Sian know that word was out about the Neo-Alliance? If not, surely it would not take long for Sian to hear and try to escape. Penelope was very much panicking because she knew her boss couldn’t be far, and apprehending people was not in her job description. She was a researcher, not an auror. The biggest risks she had thought she would encounter in this job were her own experiments with spells. Experimental spells could backfire, but they didn’t fight back to cause intentional harm. Merlin, she was NOT paid enough for this. She had taken this job at the ministry to get her research funded and because she hadn’t found any open professorships at wizarding universities, not to save the world. If she survived this, she was absolutely going to ask for a raise, or at the very least, a bonus.

Making her way back from the break room as silently as possible with her wand drawn, Penelope cautiously poked her head around the corner to see if the work area was clear. Nope. Boss lady was here. However, Sian was holding a coffee so maybe she would be slow to react. Raising her wand and aiming it at Sian, Penelope cast a nonverbal Petrificus Totalus, followed by a non-verbal Incarcerous in case the first spell missed its mark. Quickly, she ducked back around the corner in case any spells came flying back at her. Why oh why was she the one who had to do this? Hopefully some reinforcements would come soon. While she was capable of performing powerful advanced spells, she was rather out of practice in dueling.

Things were definitely getting, well, more interesting. There had been a moment at the orientation where Skye had questioned whether or not it was worth working at the Ministry, but after the news had filtered over to A&C about Hogwarts and the Neo-Alliance and, oddly enough, her own department head being basically a cult member, possibly even a high-ranking one, she was less questioning about her placement. Especially when that explosion had been awfully loud. The blonde had been tempted to head to MLE to check on her cousins, but instead she decided she was better used elsewhere. Like right where she was. Besides, she figured her father and likely Scottie himself would rather know she had stayed put. Stayed at the Ministry instead of rushing off to battle.

Even if there was every chance that she’d find that her boss wasn’t quite as sugar-coated as she always appeared. As to the question of if she was doing what she ought to be doing, the answer was absolutely. She’d thought her dueling skills wouldn’t be entirely useful, but now that might be put to the test. Although, for now she had chosen to just pause next to Penelope.

Just minding her OWN business out here, and maybe a little bit of everyone else's, Sian had no reason to think there was any trouble afoot. She'd been besieged by paperwork all the live long day, of course, but even without that, Sian never would have suspected any of their carefully laid plans had gone topsy turvy. Why would they?! Everything was going absolutely swimmingly.

WHOOSH. A spell went zipping by Sian, right across her eye line. "EEEEEEK!" She squealed, jumping back. WHOOSH-FWIP. A second spell flew in, and this one connected with Sian's coffee cup, sending thick cords around it (spilling the contents everywhere too, thank you very much)... and her hand. Her WAND hand! "GAAAAAAH!"

The nerve!

"EMPLOYEES GONE ROGUE!" Sian screeched, diving to the nearest cover she could find. Could she holler loud enough for Bain to hear her from a floor away, without using a sonorus charm, or a patronus? You bet your sweet tootsie rolls she could. "BAAAAAIN! EMPLOYEES GONE ROGUE ON LEVEL THREE! BAAAAAAAAIN!"

Bain? Simone? Alphonsine? Zabini? ANYONE?

With difficulty, Sian drew her wand with her non-dominant hand, and aimed it up over the desk towards where the spells had come from. "Stupefy!" she shrieked, brandishing the wand clumsily in one hand, sending the stunning spell wide, before attempting to free her wand hand of its coffee-cup-prison with an even clumsier finite.

Yassi still wasn't sure what to make of the new changes. Or rather, she did know that she disagreed with them entirely, but whether to stay and fight or to take off and leave? That was the real difficulty she was facing. The potential to galvanize real change inspired a sense of hope, but to continue working in such an environment that upheld such prejudices? Would that not make her part of the problem?

Such was her moral dilemma and it was a taxing one. This showed in the way she carried herself from day to day. Exhaustion followed her as if it were an old friend.

Today was no different.

With a cup of freshly steeped tea in her hands, she made her way for level 3, hoping to find Dalton. Unsuspecting of any showdown that was about to take place in the work area, Yassi made her way inside. It was only then that all the shrieking took place and Yasmin jumped back with a loud gasp. Evidently, today was not a good day for hot beverages.

With Ms. Llewellyn ducking for cover and the two employees currently in hiding, that left Yasmin standing in the middle of the room without a clue as to what was going on.

"Wha--?"

Neo-alliance? Yassi hadn't heard the news.

Default Aegis here just trying to get work done with the Event Concealment up/down from G&S
I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

Aegis too was just in the work area near where the Event Concealment people normally set up. He was dropping off some papers at their desks. This was the boring work. It was work he preferred now. Concerned that he might be called on to fire more employees or Quidditch Peoples. Did he mention how much he despised having to fire someone. You'll never find him in a position of authority ever again. Unless with was Dad stuff.

Then suddenly there was a loud shriek. Aegis turned his head up and saw the Accidents and Catastrophe's Department Head get spells cast at her and ducked behind some cover. He looked quickly to see where these spells were being cast then saw Sian throw a really poorly aimed stunning spell from it. Or..."Hey move!" Aegis shouted toward the girl (Yassi) who was carrying tea in her hand. He rushed toward her grabbing one of her arms without concern for her tea and pulled her down before the spell could connect. Nearly even making contact with himself.

He brandished his wand and held it out poking his head from the cover. Trying to pinpoint where the spells that were aimed at Sian had come from again. Looking back down and toward the lady. "You okay?" He asked. Before uttering "what the hell?!" harshly under his breath. He wasn't cut out for this! Well yeah he was. Aegis lived for this thrill. He hadn't felt the sweet explosion of the Quod in some time. But his Wife was much more suited for this. She was the MLE'er not him. She'd figure it out faster.

Oh good, her research assistant was here. This was certainly a situation in which she could use some assistance. Penelope motioned to Skye to stay still as she heard Sian start to yell. Merlin, that woman was LOUD. Bain. From what she had heard, he was also a wanted Neo-Alliance infiltrator so that was all she needed to hear to confirm that her boss was not the sweet woman she appeared to be. Fortunately, the poorly aimed stupefy missed Penelope. Penelope stuck her head around the corner again to assess the situation, only to find that more people had showed up and they unfortunately didn’t seem to be doing anything to help. Ugh, if they were just going to be sitting in the crossfire they needed to either get out of here or help take Sian down. She ducked back around the corner for cover and shouted ”Don’t let her get away!” The others who had showed up would understand that, right? Every moment she had to waste on explaining things was time where she could potentially lose the upper hand. Hopefully she could count on backup from Skye. Nonverbally, Penelope put up a shield around herself, then waved her hand in a gesture to Skye that she was going on the offensive again. Sticking her head and wand arm around the corner again, Penelope aimed her wand at the desk where, by the sound of it, Sian was hiding and concentrated not on the person behind the desk, but on the desk itself and what it would look like as a desk-sized dragon. ”Draconifors!” That was followed up by a nonverbal oppugno to direct the desk dragon to attack Sian.

Sian COULDN'T HELP BUT NOTICE that a certain someone was not flocking to her aid, perhaps with a dedicated team of Magical Law Enforcement employees kept on standby for this very situation. The Sian Llewellyn Urgent Response Party. S.L.U.R.P. for short. Of course, Sian had never actually spoken to Bain about this, hadn't seriously expected this eventuality, but it was very hurtful that he'd not thought of it himself. Even more hurtful that he was not responding to her unholy racket shrieks for assistance even by himself, when they were a supposed to be a team. What could POSSIBLY be the hold-up?

Hmph. That was the end of his access to Blood Pops on tap. HMPH.

Finally getting the mug free from her hand, Sian wasted no time in lobbing it up and over the desk towards her attackers. Wand now in the correct hand, she transfigured the mug, while it was airborne, into a flock of angry birds, and sent them ahead at EVERYONE in order to defend her honour. "Oppugno!"

... Only to get a taste of her own medicine. From a dragon.

ROGUE.

"BAAAAAAAIIIIN," Sian shrieked - really, it was reflex by this point - diving away from the dragon between several over desks. She pushed to her feet and half-ran, half-speedy-power-walked to the exit, and ideally to safety. Directing her wand back over her shoulder, she let off a barrage of spells to take care of the dragon, and maybe the ROGUE EMPLOYEES. "Bombarda! Obscuro! Flipendo! Duckifors! Redactum Skullus!" Just missing the kitchen sink.

Another day at the Ministry, another series of interrogations. While one would have presumed that such a thing would be emotionally draining, it was the complete opposite for Dante. The disbelief, the anger, the confusion, it all, whether expressed verbally or not, was amusing to him. The rambling thoughts of those who were less than in particular more often than not brought a smile to his face.

One such smile was on his face as he made his return to Level Three. Investigation files at hand, the Head Obliviator was making his way to his desk to return a set he had taken with him to the courtrooms. He wanted to make sure the other Obliviators were keeping themselves busy before he grabbed different files for his afternoon business. Though the appearance of the meerkat, which had sprinted past him, and its message caused the smile to immediately disappear.

Dante was ready to turn on his heel and make an exit, as he had a feeling in his gut that something was up. The shrieking of one Sian Llewellyn only confirmed that feeling. He darted toward the work areas, only to see fellow employees casting spells her way and said woman defending herself the best she could.

"Mademoiselle," he called out to her. His wand was then raised, only to cast a strong shield charm between the two of them and the others in the room.

Yassi would have taken a moment or two to lament about the spilled tea, but there was very little time for that. ”Thank you,” she managed, turning to the man (Aegis) who had saved her from the clumsy spell. The gratitude was evident in her features and she would have continued to thank him graciously had it not been for the sudden appearance of a desk-dragon. Instead, and as a result of the instruction to keep the Department Head from 'getting away', Yassi gave him a questioning look to see if he understood what was happening.

The scene before them was a disorienting one and Yasmin had never been one to do well under pressure. Following her reflexes, she quickly whipped out her wand to cast a Protego, shielding both herself and the man (Aegis) from the flock of angry birds. Protective shields were quite the rage, it seemed, as Ms. Llewellyn managed to find her own with Mr. Zabini.

”What is going on!?” Did someone want to explain or were they meant to stand about while the Department Head continued to send a myriad of spells their way? If this was some petty fight between employer and employee, then there were much better ways to handle it. Consultation did wonders.

I have an addiction to cheddar cheese. But it's only mild. Ever tried to eat a clock? It's time-consuming.

Still clueless and in the middle of the Accidents and Catastrophes work space no-mans-land. Aegis covered his head while he withdrew his wand from his holster. Now himself thankful to the lady who he pulled out of the way from a stray stunning spell for the shield charm she protected them with against the birds.

and was that!? That desk had been transfigured into a Dragon! Seriously "Stop! This needs to stop!" What was going on? Some of Sian's Employee's were attacking her and Sian was going nuts about it. He honestly couldn't figure this out. This was no team building paintball exercise that he found himself in the middle of.

The Dragon Desk Dragon Thing was barreling toward them and Aegis went up quickly to cast Reparifarge on it when a flash of yellow light hit him square in chest. He was not cut out for this!

The Former Quodpotter suddenly found himself getting morphed into a cute little mallard.

"Quack! Wak waak Wak Quack!!" He cursed in duck. Waddling around angrilly at the feet of the lady he shared cover with.

"Change me back! I'm so done with this! I'm gonna freak out!!"
"Waak Waak Quack! Wak! Quack!"

Slytherindor ♛ The Crazytastic Besties ♛ Shan Watson ♛

Arabella had agreed to meet her husband for lunch. She was exhausted. Returning back to work after having triplets was a nightmare but she was glad to have Aegis' family to watch their children. Her own family had offered but she knew her parents were busy with the Trust and her little sister so she preferred not to overwhelm them with so many kids at once.

But yes - it was lunch time! Which meant - she could have a break and go see him. Seeing him brought a little normalcy back into her day and she found herself not walking on egg shells around him compared to in her group. After the interesting gala, she had started to tread very carefully around her co-workers and fellow Ministry workers. Trust no one. Stay vigilant. Oh mother Merlin. She was beginning to sound like her dear Papa.

Anyway - lunch. It was time for lunch and happier thoughts. She tried to focus on that. It was a little routine that she and Aegis had started up when they were courting and had continued onwards.

The beautiful witch turned around the corner to find a SCENE. She turned to her husband's coworkers (or so she presumed). There was a duck, a dragon(?), and people standing around. "What's going on?" she asked, eying the group suspiciously.

What was going on AND WHERE was her husband and WHY WAS THERE A DUCK HERE?!?!?

So many questions to answer. So little time.

She tapped her foot. She hated being late for a date.

Dante Zabini had never looked more scrumptious beautiful than he did right now. The face, yes, always did wonders. A true sight for sore eyes on any normal day, but today his appearance meant an added level of safety. Sian hustled over to him, huddling in behind his shield charm, and clutched his arm. (She had to. It was a very nice arm.)

"Rogue employees, Zabini." Had he caught that part? She might have been too subtle. "An unprovoked attack. Bain will want to take them all into custody." That's right, they were going to be A R R E S T E D. ALL of them, just to be safe. Hopefully Goldwasser was thirsty ready for a whole mountain of paperwork. Sian squinted through the shield, taking note of names she knew and committing the other faces to memory. At least two were her own employees, the rest scattered across levels. And a duck, apparently, judging by the racket. Who was turning people into ducks at a time like this?

And... no. The penny had not dropped yet. Stressful situation and everything. What reason would she have to believe something had gone wrong in their plans, in any case? Even the ROGUE EMPLOYEES didn't seem to know why they were attacking, for the love of Grindelwald!

"QUACK!"
Aegis was FREAKING OUT and he was a duck and screaming! How do ducks scream and be angry?! Is this how Daffy and Donald felt all the time? He was beginning to feel sympathetic to his new fowl friends. He couldn't undo this spell on his own. He needed help to be free!!

He angrilly waddled in place around the woman's feet who shielded him originally.

and once he turned free he was going to still be angry. When you play Quodpot you had to channel your anger a lot. Dare he say it was much more physical game than Quidditch. First he was going incapacitate Sian. She acted in self defense but her spell slinging was the first major threat. So she would be dealt with. The he would disarm and capture the rogue Accident and Catastrophes employees.


Lastly...wait..."Waak?!" Was that Arabella's voice!? OH QcrUAapCK. That's right they were gonna meet in the Lobby here once he finished sending the documents to this department and they were going to grab a bit to eat before heading home to the Dane Babies!

In the most Gryffindor Moment one could see a duck possibly do. Duck!Aegis ran out of cover grabbing the attention of the Desk Dragon! He was learning to fly right here and now!! He Flapped his wings and flapped and flapped as he clumsilly took flight in the office space right toward his Wife!!
SAVE ME!! "Quack! Wak Quack!! Waak!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAK!!"

Hoping backup had followed him from the Technology Lounge, Conley burst into work area on Level 3. He rarely came to this floor, but there was enough chaos that Conley could just follow the noise to the drama zoo. Despite Jane's burn salve, Conley's arm was still killing him. It wasn't just the burn, but also whatever had smacked into him had some damage too. His husband was likely going to be furious with him, but he didn't have time for that. Things still needed to be taken care of, and while Goldwasser might have slipped out of their hands, there were others to apprehend.

Desperately hoping that Saul or Sachin or both had followed him down here, he skidded to a halt next to a very loud and squawking duck. "Good gravy!" he exclaimed looking at the duck and the dragon. "And I thought the fires were bad." While the duck was distracting, the dragon was a bit more - of a wild card. He pointed his wand at it, "Finite Incantatem!"

Then he called out to everyone in the room. "Stand down." The order was for everyone, Sian and Zabini as well.

Eek! Penelope ducked as some very angry birds flocked towards her. She hated things flying at her face. Sian had found her weakness. In fact, the brief moment of terror caused by the birds was enough to throw her off enough that she just barely missed getting hit by Sian’s bombarda. Oh, right. The birds were just a simple transfiguration. She had a PhD in this stuff for Merlin’s sake. She could handle this. A simple vanishing spell soon took care of the birds that had been trying to attack her.

Really? Their head obliviator was on Sian’s side? Penelope wasn’t sure if he was a high ranking Neo-Alliance member or simply someone trying to protect his boss from what the woman was describing as an unprovoked attack. Whichever it was, it seemed she couldn’t trust some of her co-workers. It had been fairly obvious for a while that whatever was going on with the Neo-Alliance was no good, but it was still rather shocking to find that some of the people she worked closely with were so involved with it. Still, perhaps she should have seen it coming.

Uh, yeah, no. She wasn’t the one who was going to be arrested today. It seemed like the only people who had thus far offered any explanations of the situation so far were those on the side of the Neo-Alliance and she needed to get things straightened out before she got on the wrong end of the wands of the newcomers who had yet to choose a side in this fight. ”Ms. Llelwyn is wanted for being a high ranking member of the Neo-Alliance. They’ve infiltrated the ministry but now the jig is up and they will be taken into custody.” They knew what the Neo-Alliance was in at least some capacity, yes? The key takeaway here was that it was time to take back control from the Neo-Alliance.

Still alert and focused on keeping the suspects here until backup could arrive, Penelope cast an anti-disapparition jinx on the room in hopes that it would prevent them from escaping quickly.

Why was her dragon wasting its time chasing a duck? It was supposed to be going after Sian. In all the chaos, Penelope had missed the fact that the duck had originally been a person and not just some random object.

When the order came to stand down, Penelope lowered her wand but still kept a sharp eye on Sian and Dante in case they ignored the order. One could never be too careful. No more offensive spells for now, but there were some things to take care of first. Penelope aimed her wand at the duck. ”Reparifarge.” She repeated the transfiguration spell for the dragon. That should take care of things. Her attention was brought to the man who had given the order to stand down. Sorry, what was that about fires? ”Fires? Are you here to arrest Ms. Llelwyn?” Still keeping an eye on you, Sian.

Well damn! This level was a right mess too now wasn't it!? Saul stopped right beside Conley as he took in the whole situation in here. Gonna just ignore that he said good gravy Then he looked at what the good gravy was. "Good Gravy!" Saul repeated when he saw the Dragon running amok within the Workspace. Had Bain released a dragon into this place too? What setting fires on his own was too much work for the Vampire?...What was with the Duck?!

Ah!! Aha! Okay so the shouting was coming from Sian. She was wanted. At Conley's announcement for everyone to stand down the back-burned-exhausted looking IUMO Chief Inspector took that moment to Step Forward.

He looked toward the young lady (Penelope) who pretty much summed it all up for him. Good timing. "You heard her. 'Jig's up.' "

"Sian Llewellyn, you are under arrest for your connection and involvement with the Neo-Alliance." He brandished his wand and had it pointed directly toward the Accident's and Catastrophes Department Head. His eyes glanced over to Dante Zabini next. "Dante, step away from her." That wasn't a request. "Sian, drop your wand and come quietly. I doubt Bain is coming to save you. He left rather quickly." Made a mess of things, left him needing medical treatment with all the fire he created.


Hopefully Conley and the Young Lady had the Dragon...and the Duck under control. More the Dragon obviously? Why the duck?...At least it was keeping the Dragon distracted. Would be a shame if it was eaten.

QUACK QUACK QUACK! HE WAS GONNA BE DRAGON FOOD AND HE WAS SO MAD ABOUT!! "Quack Waak wak Quack!" For Merlin's sake someone do something! He narrowly avoid loosing his tail feathers as He Launchpad McQuacked crashed into some desks at the other end of the office. That fine spell missing it’s target to cure him of his fowl predicament.

Oh...Dragon wasn't a Dragon anymore but Aegis was still a duck!!

The meerkat's message he had heard earlier and the sight of employees going after the department head was all he knew. But all of that was enough to make him want to leave, preferably now rather than later. If the rest of the Ministry caught fire, he didn't want to be trapped in flames. Then there were these rogue employees, who were attacking lovely Sian for no apparent reason.

"There's a fire on Level One," Dante told Sian just loud enough for her to hear. "And this attack on you..." There was a pause as he took in everything that was happening on the other side of the shield he was sharing with the woman. The employees who had been shooting spells at the department head, the employees who were totally oblivious to what was going on, and then a random duck and even a dragon. Choas was all it was. "We need to go. Bain can take care of them later." He was sure the man was itching for people to drain fill up the holding cells anyway.

Since Sian was clutched to his arm and the shield was still up, he starting heading in the direction of the reception area so they could grab a lift and disappear from all of this madness.

But, of course, a simple escape to prevent them from burning and/or being pelted with more spells was easier said than done. What the devil were Conley Phora and Saul Primeaux doing here?

As everything unfolded, he was thinking, plotting, playing out the scenarios of possible moves to make. The orders to stand down went ignored; he did not take orders from Phora and Primeaux of all people. The shield that was protecting him, the files he still carrying with his other hand, and the department head remained.

The duck still being a distraction, the Head Obliviator added distractions of his own. A magical cloud of smoke (he was going to use that mention of the fires to his benefit) suddenly began to appear. Dante then started moving again, whether Sian wanted to move or not, as his shield dwindled and smoke began to fill the space. He casted a nonverbal Oscausi toward Penelope Wright, courtesy of her rambling earlier, and a few nonverbal Stunners through the smoke in Phora and Primeaux's direction as he began inching his way toward the reception area.
