Default Arrivals and Departures (Floo Network and Phone Booth)

Stretching towards the golden gates is a wide corridor lined with multiple gilded black marble fireplaces. Here is the main floo network and phone booth used by Ministry workers and visitors alike for arrivals and departures. The luster of marble has over time acquired an illusionary, shifting emerald green from their numerous uses; the marble stretching out to touch the dark wood floors that run down the corridor's center.

To the left are the floos for the arrivals of employees, and those located to the right are for departures. Visitors arrive through the red phone booth centered at the opposite end of the hallway. While many of the employees are busy rushing in and out of the floos, you may catch a few standing around awaiting the arrival of another before heading on there way. You may do the same, and even hold a conversation before heading for the gates or exit. Though it won't be much of one with the close quarters and carrying voices.

When you come down to the wide corridor lined with multiple gilded black marble fireplaces intending to floo home to your loved ones after a long day of work you’ll be in for a very unpleasant surprise. The floo powder dispensers are all gaping empty. The floo powder is not replenishing itself as usual which is very, very peculiar. Has there ever been a shortage of floo powder in ministry history? I think not, so you best report it, and choose another way to get home because flooing is not an option.

What a long day it had been.

The usual chipper Lucas Hawthorne was exhausted and more than ready to get home to some well deserved rest and relaxation. He’d already checked with Brody to see if he’d be coming too but his nephew was busy clocking some overtime. That was why Lucas was here by himself at Atrium moving as quickly as his legs would take him towards the fireplaces. Here and there he greeted familiar faces and politely declined offers to head out for a drink.

The Ministry employee reached for the dispenser of the nearest free fireplace and only later registered that his fist had closed around nothingness. That was certainly enough to have some of his tiredness evaporate. Huh? This was highly unusual and it left him quite baffled. “Is anyone else’s dispenser out of Floo Powder?” He attempted to raise his voice above the hubbub in order to get the attention of those nearby.

There was nothing Chloe wanted moreeee at the end of the day then to go home, kick her feet up and have a nice glass of meade while reading a good book. Which was apparently going to be delayed today as she went to grab her usual amount of floo powder to which there was none?

She blinked, checking the dispenser again, before hearing someone calling out the same revelation she had just experienced. "Yeaaaa... suppose we should send a memo to alert the department of Magical Transportation?" Who was in charge of the floo network these days anyway? It was all new employees since she'd last worked in that department. Except maybe Kingston Dolph was still there and maybe a couple others? But she didn't think he worked with the floo. "Supply chain or just cutting costs, you think?" Over a decade of being a Ministry Employee, yet never had she seen the floo powder be depleted.

Lucas was rather rethinking his urge to blurt out that question. It could simply have been that the magic in his dispenser had malfunctioned. Now he ran the risk of embarrassing himself. Except that his dispenser hadn’t been the only one that had ran out of Floo Powder. The man was even too tired to dismiss the fact that he needn’t worry about his earlier overthinking.

He craned his neck in the direction of the voice and eventually located whom it belonged to. “We should,’’ Lucas began warily, nodding at the same time to Chloe. “It would be best if we check the other dispensers as well. That way we can provide accurate information.” He scanned the line of fireplaces. “You do that side, and I’ll do this side? Also, it would be great if a couple of you could help,’’ Lucas called to those nearby. The quicker they sorted this out, the quicker they could get home.

Jane was tired and feeling rather grim lately. Thanks to the effects of those enchanted objects of the merpeople, she had lost yet another round of experiments, in what was already a very tricky part of her work. She'd spent the past week just cleaning up the spoiled parts and thoroughly cleansing the little laboratory she had set up at the top tier of the Death Chamber, which meant a lot of work for seemingly little gain. She also felt slightly embarrassed by whatever she may have said or done while she was enchanted--she couldn't really remember very clearly, but from the looks she'd been getting from some of the other Ministry employees, she could imagine the sort of thing. So she was in no mood for a long line at the floos and she sighed softly to herself as she noticed several people milling around in the corridor.

She approached the area just in time to catch Lucas's last words and immediately began investigating the floo powder containers nearest her, one after the other...What was going on here? They couldn't all be empty...could they? But they appeared to be, and if they were, that meant... "This is not normal," she said out loud. "They shouldn't all be empty."

When Lucas mentioned checking all the dispensers to just confirm their apparent lack of floo powder, Chloe nodded and went straight to checking them as Jane joined the search party. "It's the wizarding world. Nothing is ever normal, technically speaking." she said wryly.

"Might be faster to just take the lifts to level six, since it seems we're not going home anyway." With that, she departed for the lifts... If they followed her, then they were more than welcome to. Or wait here. It was up to them, but she wasn't about to just stand around.

"Or there's this new thing called the phone booth...." It didn't just go one way, folks. In fact, that was the direction that Ronan was headed when he overheard this absurd conversation so, you know, no one go ahead of him. "Then you can just find a nice obscure place to apperate. Or if you're feeling real adventurous, you could take the Tube..." Floo wasn't the only way of travel. Actually, he didn't understand why so many of his fellow Ministry workers relied on it so much. Just such a dirty, dusty way to get around. Also, you ran into situations like this. Not his cup of tea.

Jane was vaguely aware of the voices of her colleagues suggesting alternate means of leaving, but once she had looked at several empty floo powder containers, she had become preoccupied with the matter and had gone on to check every single container on one side of the floos. All empty. "Every single container is empty," she stated out loud, looking around at the others. "One or two empty could be an accident or just the result of overuse, but every single one? Don't you think that's rather unusual?" Something strange was definitely going on here. Either that, or the department in charge of floo powder at the Ministry was unusually incompetent

Remember how Lucas had been feeling run down by the day? Now he was feeling slightly awake. There was the edge of irritation as well since he had been quite looking forward to getting himself home, as he was sure, many other employees. By now, he had finished checking two other dispensers. It was around that time that Jane came along. Lucas nodded grimly in agreement. “It is but I’m sure we can have it rectified somehow.” There was no need to start a panic; at least he was trying not to let that happen. That was why he forced a laugh when Chloe mentioned that nothing was ever normal with them.

Thanks to the quick checks, it was determined that all of the dispensers were indeed empty. Lucas was too caught up with the entire situation, and quite frankly, did not have the energy to deal with Ronan and his snide comments. What Lucas did have the energy to say was, “Then perhaps you and Jane can assist the other employees to exist that way, Ronan?” He would go with Chloe instead. A Patronus would have been faster to deliver a message but sadly, the Quidditch Division Manager had been unable to conjure a proper one all his life.

"Pffffft, redheads," he muttered as he watched the redhead in question flounce away clearly irritated. She was the one that had suggested they were stuck here just because there was no floo powder. He had merely pointed out that was not the case. Could he have been nicer about it? Sure, but if people didn't know this simple fact by her age (because she clearly wasn't some fresh out of Hogwarts hire), they deserved the reaction they got.

"Could just be oversight, could be incompetence, could be the person responsible for refilling them simply got lazy. Or it could be a sneaky learning opportunity for those who rely on only floo to get around." Personally, he was hoping for the later simply because of the amusement that could come from people freaking out over this and the potential for the 'saving the 'damsel in distress' or whatever the male equivalent of that was. Though, did he really want to save someone that was that oblivious to the world round them?.

"Sure, I'll get right on that," he replied sarcastically to Lucas, still unpressed about the whole situation. Whole 'damsel/male equivalent in distress' thing aside, he just really didn't have it in him to deal with obliviousness today. He simply wanted to get home, play with his daughter then go to bed. So, instead of all that, he silently conjured up huge, blinking neon "OUT OF ORDER, FIGURE OUT ANOTHER WAY HOME" signs over each of the fireplaces.

Wow, that actually improved the looks of the corridor. Maybe they should make the neon lights a permanent thing?

Aloof even for an unspeakable, Damian had been coming and going through the floo network with nary a word to his coworkers. Outside of his official debriefing, he was rather vague about his time in Atlantis.

The first of the Atlantis Twelve was working his way through the gathered throng when the neon sign appeared overhead, stopping him in his tracks. Without an immediate form of egress, he did as he did in Atlantis: Try and disarm them with charm. "Someone forget to pay the floo bill?" Asking jokingly, he tried to cut through the tension, fully aware that something sinister could be afoot.

"Gotta private portkey I could fetch that'll drop us behind the Leaky Cauldron if anyone wants to get a cuppa." Punctuated with a smile, Damian had no intention of explaining why he had a portkey that could transport him from the Ministry of Magic to a tavern. Sometimes you just want to duck your responsibilities.

Jane could not accept the ordinary explanations being offered for this situation; it just seemed too strange a coincidence to her. She had been on the verge of contacting the MLE office when behind her she heard the voice of her co-worker in the Death Chamber, who she had not seen much of since his return from Atlantis. This was partly Jane's own doing, because she was still a little embarrassed by her actions while under the influence of those magical objects--actions which she did not remember, but which had been described to her by several colleagues, who seemed to regard it with amusement. Jane did not.

However, now she was glad to hear Damian Pendragon, because she knew that he, at least, would take strange happenings seriously. "Damian," she said in a sharp voice, to get his attention. Then, moving in his direction, she lowered his voice and continued. "There's...there's something strange about this, I think. I mean, it's not just one or two, or even some; every single container of floo powder is empty, and it's just hard to believe that's the result of simple incompetence."

"Jane.." Jane Howard was Damian Pendragon's counterpart in the Death Chamber. Representing life and death respectively, it was all very melodramatic, but the Department of Mysteries was a dramatic place. You should see the Love Chamber around Valentine's Day.

The last time the two unspeakables' had seen each other, Jane was suffering from a cursed artifact induced case of acute hydromania, and Damian was being dragged off to be a political prisoner. At the bottom of the ocean, the wily wizard had plenty of time to think about what he would say when they were in the same room again. But, as always, Jane was all business, and when she dangled a mystery in front of his nose, so was he. There was a reason his patronus was a hound dog.

"It's said, "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity." " Damian said, crouching near one of the containers in the hope of finding something beyond the obvious before the scene was further trampled. "To me, that tells me that you can properly hide misdeeds with perceived incompetence."

"It's hard to believe in this much incompetence," replied Jane with a soft snort. Well, actually it was, but he hopefully got the idea. "Every, single one empty--that does seem to strain the law of averages. And, now that I think of it," she went on, suddenly remembering bits and pieces of random information that were begiining to put themselves together in her head, "now that I think of it, several of my foreign colleagues mentioned a shortage of floo powder at their institutions in recent correspondence. Just in passing, you understand, but it's curious--I wonder if there's a shortage?" And if so, why? "Some people went to report it to Transportation, but I was wondering if we should alert Magical Law Enforcement as well?"

Annnd here came the conspiracy theories. He was about to remind Damian about what he'd told him before about listening to Jane but decided it wasn't worth the wasted breath. Just why was it so hard to believe the simple explanation? Or that someone simply got tired of everyone relying upon only the floo to get around and decided to teach them a lesson?

"We're already aware," he snapped to the last part. Auror standing RIGHT HERE. "Now, remind me why it's our problem, aside from the fits people are likely to have, without resorting to your conspiracy ridiculousness?" If there was one thing he hated more than stupid conspiracies without basis, it was obliviousness. And both were on full display right now.

"Ronan, my friend!" Damian started excitedly, clasping a hand on the Auror's shoulder. "Glad to know you're on the case." Facing a vampire together garnered some camaraderie, at least in the unspeakable's eyes.

"The simple solution would be that this was all a mix up if this were anywhere else. I like to believe that we are all here because we are the best of the best." He punctuated this by fist pumping the hand that was once on Ronan's shoulder. "And I wouldn't consider it conspiracy to assume that there would be redundant systems, perhaps some stopgaps, in place to make sure something like this would never happen out of neglect." Ronan and Damian were both extremely skilled at their jobs. They were also quite adept at getting under each other's skin. Though Damian seemed to have a little bit more fun with it.

Jane turned at the sound of Ronan's voice and raised an eyebrow. "No one said is was your problem, I just assumed your office would want to be kept abreast of any unusual happenings around the Ministry, so you could be prepared. Of course, one could always just wait until things go wrong." Really, the man always seemed to get so angry at the drop of a hat--one would think an Auror would have better control of their emotions. But it troubled her to think she was somehow being branded a crackpot seeing conspiracies under every stone. She'd only been party to information on strange happenings a few times, not to mention that she'd been right about them. Maybe things wouldn't keep going so spectacularly wrong at the Ministry if people didn't ignore the early signs so often.

Well, at least she knew that the MLE office was aware of the situation, not that she had any hopes they would do anything about it. Jane used to feel she had some contacts in the office, back during the Neo-Alliance takeover, but lately she didn't know who to talk to anymore. At any rate, she did not intend to waste any more energy arguing with this prickly, self-important Auror. But it might be interesting to watch her colleague interacting with him, if the initial conversational opening was any clue.
