Default Seating Area

Right as you exit the areas set aside for the main buffet, the juice bar, and the dessert bar, you'll come into a section filled with enough tables and chairs to accommodate the large number of employees working at the Ministry of Magic. There's really nothing special here. The tables and chairs are typical of those you'd find in any other cafeteria, with the exception of the multi-colored theme that seems fairly evident throughout the food court. So grab a chair; a red one, blue one, yellow one...whichever you'd like! Enjoy your meal, and please--come again!

Dottie needed food and coffee. Working in the Department of Mysteries really took it's toll on you. There was no natural light down there, she also need a good dose of Vitamin D to raise her spirits. She wasn't sure what she was hoping her work life would be like. She honestly wasn't sure she loved her job ... or being adult ... maybe it was more about being an adult. Dottie often missed her days at Hogwarts where life was a little more care free.

Taking a bite of her sandwich she decided to sit in in the atrium and eat today, it was NOT going to be a working lunch today!

Another day, another lunch break that Regina had invited Scott to join her for. Seeing him - at work, during lunch, after work - had become part of her routine, but in a good way. A great way. It was something she looked forward to every time, no matter what it was they'd planned to do. Whether it was bowling like on their first date or just grabbing a coffee or anything else, she always enjoyed being around him.

No coffee this time though. She'd opted for a salad and water for today. Just something that would get her through the rest of the work day until it was time for dinner.

Claiming a yellow chair at an empty table, she took a seat and glanced around. Scott would be here any minute.

Scottie was miiiiildly late for lunch because of all of the paperwork he had these days. Were people going mad? Because it felt like people were going mad and MISUSING ALL THE THINGS. His position that he had gotten last December was a MUCH needed change of pace, and he loved how much work he always had to do. He even loved the paperwork. His brain just liked organizing things and making them all proper.

With his lunch bag's strap draped over his shoulder, the MLEer plopped down across from Regina, his cheeks practically glowing red from his thoughts. "Hey." Was all he said.

Very quiet.

Super shy.

Averting his gaze to his food, he said nothing more as he unpacked his sandwich.

Ah, there he was!

And...acting a little bit out of sorts, it seemed?

There could be many reasons for the more quiet demeanor today, and of course her mind was already running away with the possibilities. He could simply be tired. Maybe it was a rough morning at his job so far. Or maybe just a unusually slow morning. Maybe he hadn't had breakfast, and that was why he was so focused on his food.

Or there were the more serious possibilities. Maybe Nando was ill. Maybe another family member was. That was reason for anyone to be quiet from the stress and worry.

Or maybe...maybe he hadn't wanted to join her for lunch? It was silly that that thought particularly stressed her. She didn't want it to be any of the other possibilities either, especially the serious ones. He might very well simply be having an off day, and he felt less talkative because of it. That was reasonable. She had her own days like that too. Everyone did.

So...she would...try not to over-analyze. Easier said than done, since it felt like second nature for her mind to jump to the worst possible scenarios, but she was trying. Better to actually ask than assume.

"Rough day so far?" she asked, poking at the lettuce in her salad with a fork.

Rough day? Ha. HA. Scottie looked up at her question, pausing from lifting the lunchkit flap to look at her momentarily. Why did she think that? Did he look glum? He didn't feel glum. Just anxious. Stressed. "Something on my mind is all. But otherwise I'm fine, promise," he said quickly without much passion behind his words as his brain whizzed away. He pulled his container of soup and his sandwich out of his kit and set them down in front of him. Using his wand, he magic'd the soup to a lukewarm temperature before he undid the lid, then warmed it up some more.

"What about your day?"
He asked, trying his best to sound...less.....bland. It was just a default mode when he was anxious about something. His hands also had a bad habit of moving a lot when he was feeling like this. His foot tap tap tapped sporadically.

Ugh. The small talk. It was killing him. On second thought ---

"We need to talk at some point. Seriously talk, I mean," he said as he cleared his throat. His face was sweating.

"We need to talk at some point. Seriously talk, I mean," he said as he cleared his throat. His face was sweating.
His response was mildly reassuring. If there was something particularly awful, she was pretty sure he would let her know if there was a serious problem of some kind. But she was still concerned. And anxious. Definitely taking in those anxious vibes.

"My day's been okay. Pretty normal, I guess." A pretty average day, nothing out of the ordinary. Some might consider it boring, but Regina was okay with a boring day during work. Everything was less stressful that way.

But then. We need to talk.

And again her mind was going into overdrive. And again she was trying to pump the brakes on it. Because Scott had said he just had something on his mind, but things were fine, so if that was what he wanted to talk about, it couldn't be anything too bad. And really, there were things they needed to talk about. Things that he deserved to know, that she wanted to tell him. She just needed to muster up the courage to do so.

"Yes. Um. Okay." She gave a small nod. "I'm free after work if you want to talk then?"

curly haired prefect - "sometimes I get angry!" - 30/90 - *chicken emoji* - probably @ Disney - I speak dog

Calloway was tired. He'd moved into a new apartment this weekend, a much NICER apartment than he'd had before, and he was exhausted. It was hard moving when you only had your dad to help you...the magic was a bit helpful, but it was a heavily muggle area as well so they could only do so much. His arms ached from moving things all day, and he simply could NOT focus on his work anymore.

So, early lunch it was. Maybe he'd be able to get some work done once he was properly refueled. Taking his lunch and his second coffee of the day to an empty table, he slid into the seat with a yawn and began to eat.

aslan evans. mother of two. alchemist. unspeakable. exhausted.
the cup of tea in their hands was strong but not strong enough to get them through what had begun as a very long night. Desdemona was sick. they had contracted an awful virus and had spent the better part of the evening making sacrifices to the god of porcelain. Aslan had only been able to hold back their hair and wipe away furious tears while the flu had run its course, and while the child of ten was fine now, it had taken up the better part of the night. In fewer words, Aslan hat not slept.

Barely aware of the young man, aslan sat down at his table and heaved a great sigh. “You look tired too.” She did not know him personally. She had seen him, however, at Ministry events and the day to day here and while Aslan was not known for making conversation, she needed something to focus her brain on.

As if on cue, Calloway YAWNNNED just as a woman sat down across from him. Chuckles a little, nodding as he rubbed his sleepy eyes. "Yeah, just a bit. Unless that was an insult and you're saying I look like rubbish," he added with a joking grin.

"Work keeping you up? Or something else?" he asked. Why not engage in a little bit of small talk with a random stranger? It was something he'd been doing more and more as he got older. Because, as it turns out, Elsa was one of his only friends and without her around to distract him, he was lonely.

Peering into her cup of tea, watched as the sugar cube she’d dropped in slowly dissolved. tiny inch by tiny inch until only a peek of white was left. only then, did she drop in the other. stretching her neck left, then right, Aslan looked at the young man as if he had appeared suddenly, as if she had not opened the conversation herself. He was younger than her, with slightly downturned eyes and a smile that had a ruefulness to it. despite his handsomeness, he had the air of someone unused to others.

aslan was not unused to other people. she just moved at her own pace. spoke in her own way. and it never seemed to align. Waving a hand over her tea, the silver spoon stirred. “I wouldn’t insult you.” she wouldn’t insult anyone. If she disliked someone she ignored them.

it had not yet clicked that he had been joking. aslan sipped her tea, both hands wrapped around the mug so the warmth could ground her. Dark eyes surveying him. aslan had only learned small talk in their latest years- it had not come easily but work made it necessary occasionally- this was small talk. She eased back into her chair, and into the conversation. “My child. They were up all night sick, so i was up all night with them.” and it was not doing her any favors.

and then it clicked. “you were joking earlier.” right.

Cal nodded in understanding. Despite having not lived with Elsa and Ryan for quite a few years now, he remembered helping her when he'd been younger and had a few rough nights. Poor kid had had ear infections constantly. "That certainly is exhausting. Not that I have kids myself but...nephew," he clarified. Although a startling thought occurred to him that not only was he old enough to have his own kids, he was old enough to have kids who would be starting SCHOOL in a few years. As in HOGWARTS.

BIG yikes.

He blinked, startled out of his thoughts by her sudden statement. Oh. She hadn't picked up on that? He thought for a moment that maybe he hadn't made that clear, but he figured it was more likely that she just hadn't picked up on the humor.

"Oh, yes, it was a joke. I would not expect anyone to randomly start insulting me unless I deserved it," he added with a chuckle. Wait, that was another joke. Would she get that one or would that too fly over her head?

It was Allie’s third year working in the ministry and she had settled into a solid routine that she was comfortable with. The hustle and bustle of the daycare regularly kept her on her toes and despite how much she loved it, it didn’t stop her from looking forward to an hour or so in the much calmer (although equally as busy at times) cafeteria. Her tray of food, a Caesar salad - she had a wedding dress to fit into after all, and a steaming cup of Cappuccino was carefully placed in front of her as she slipped into a seat at a presently empty table.

She didn’t have any reading materials today, the majority of the planning was completed with the wedding only being a month and a half away and so she was resigned to people watching which was one of her favourite activities anyway. She had made a habit of trying to work out which department others belonged to by their lunch order and chosen attire. She’d decided that those with the more active jobs, the Aurors and Hit Wizards, tended to favour meals packed with proteins and healthy carbs whereas those with office jobs seemed to pick the heartier homecooked style meals that your Mum would offer every Sunday and the Mystery lot she suspected were those who slipped in and out without being noticed. Whether her assumptions were correct she’d never know as she hadn’t ever directly asked her fellow Ministry employees where they belonged nor did she have any intention to.

The blonde forked a helping of lettuce into her mouth and gently chewed as she watched the queue of people filtering in and out of the buffet.

In all honesty, Ariadne hadn't really had the chance to venture the rest of the ministry. Most of her time required her to be off-site, and the days when she was on level two were spent shadowing the aurors and doing on-the-job training. Sure, her department had some really great facilities—that exercise room might just be her favourite place to be, when she had the time for it—but Ari wasn't going to confine herself within the boundaries of level two. She was no stranger to the atrium and, by extension, the food court. Some things, the magical vending machines just could not provide, you know?

Today had been a rather easy one, in comparison to the action-packed days spent physically training, so Ari wasn't that hungry but she knew that if she didn't get anything in her system right now, she would be. There was still some case paperwork she had to go through later on with the auror she was shadowing for the day. Vetoing against anything substantially heavy, Ari opted for a yogurt bowl, tossing a couple fruits into it for the colour, and some coffee. Paperwork made her sleepy, okay?

Ari wouldn't have minded occupying a table to herself, but she was lucky enough to spot her future cousin-in-law among the sea of workers. She weaved through the crowd, carrying her tray, and made her way to Allie. "Hi, cousin dear. May I join?" It was nice to know someone in a place that was still pretty new to her, much like when she transferred to Hogwarts in her fifth year, Ari had to admit to herself. "Are you waiting for Matty?" Even when she and Matty actually were in the same department, Ari hadn't seen the older Ackerly today. Not surprising, though. People in their level were always busy.

Allie was not averse to anyone joining her at lunchtime. She was such a people person, the type whose smile brightened up the room when she walked in with an air of confidence and yet when she or her loved ones were crossed, she could become fiercely protective in a way that was almost scary. It was really quite obvious that she had been sorted into Gryffindor at Hogwarts. Being joined by a family member, or a soon to be family member in this case, was just the icing on the cake. “Of course” she smiled welcoming it at her fellow blonde and shifted her tray slightly to the left to accommodate Ariadne’s. It had not gone unnoticed that Allie could look as if she was an Ackerly when she looked at the two sisters, their side anyway. The majority of the rest of the family, with the exception of the eldest and youngest Felix and Honey, were brunettes as were their parents and yet the blonde gene was strong.

As for Matty’s whereabouts, the daycare worker had unfortunately not received notification of her whereabouts since they said goodbye in the lobby that morning. She assumed that she was out on official business, Matty had a very practical job that resulted in a lack of presence in the offices. “I’m hoping so. She might not be here today though.” It wasn’t necessarily a negative that she was unable to spend all her lunchtimes with her fiancé considering they spent all their time at home together but that didn’t mean she didn’t enjoy it once in a while.

“So..” she clasped her hands together eagerly. “..how is it? Is it as amazing as you thought it would be?” she enquired over how Ariadne’s experience as a YATI had been so far. Allie had considered it once but her heart lay firmly with childcare. She wouldn’t be opposed to switching at some point in the future however, for now she was comfortable but she knew this job was only a temporary solution for constant employment.

Ari really didn't think that Allie would turn her away. Allie was nice, Ari liked her for Matty, and they were basically family at this point — formalities and legalities aside. But it was always courteous to ask and Ari tried not to be too presumptuous, even as she had already placed by tray down on Allie's table. "Thanks," Ari smiled, finally slipping onto a seat opposite to older blond. As for the topic on Matty's potential outdoor business, the former Ravenclaw simply nodded. It would make sense for a hit witch to actually out on patrols, obviously. One day, Ari would be like that, too. Hopefully, in four years, when she successfully tests out of the YATI program. Sure she'd only started, but she had to believe in it. "I'm sure she's alright, wherever she is." She's Matty. She's an Ackerly. More need not be said.

When she saw Allie clasping her hands, Ari could already tell where the conversation would be going. Most people were interested to know what things she got up to now that she was in the program, anyway. Ari let out a soft laugh and ran her fingers through her hair. "It's tiring." This was always what Ari would first say, when sharing her experience so far. It truly was tiring, and she wasn't about to glamourise the stress for anyone. "But I like it so much more than school. Make of that what you will." Ari smiled. She liked it more than uni, too, or at least the concept of uni because she could never imagine herself liking uni for the learning aspect alone. Though she was constantly tired, she was doing and learning things she liked here. Things she was interested in.

The exercise was a very huge bonus, of course. And the fact that she didn't have to linger at home doing nothing essentially productive. Sorry, Ander, she'd rather be doing this, indeed.

Allie had no doubt in her mind that Matty would be absolutely fine wherever she was. If there was one thing she was sure of about her fiancé it was that she could easily handle herself. The blonde had been so incredibly proud when she heard of her new job that worrying about her safety hadn’t even crossed her mind. “Oh I know she’ll be fine” she laughed. “You Ackerlys are the fiercest, most incredible women. I have no doubt that you’ll cope with whatever your careers through at you.” There was no family that she would be prouder of joining. Arguably Allie was pretty fierce too, she WAS a Gryffindor after all, but she decided she wasn’t quite cut out for that lifestyle quite yet and had pursued her other passions first.

“Tell me about it,” she chuckled thinking back to how exhausting the children in the daycare had been that day. “I know you all have to be so physically fit but have you ever tried keeping up with a toddler?” A toddler who had clearly consumed far too much sugar before their parents helpfully dropped them off for someone else to deal with. “Just think about how incredible you’ll look by the end of it.” Not that Ariadne didn’t already look incredible but it was surely an added bonus?

Allie was surprised to hear that the school experience hadn’t been favourable to her cousin-in-law, she herself had loved her time at Hogwarts and would gladly go back if she could. “Do you wish you’d stayed at Beauxbatons then?” She could see the appeal but nothing would change her mind over Hogwarts being the superior magic school.

Allie was absolutely spitting facts there and then. Ari couldn't help the smirk that crept on her lips because, yes, she absolutely looked up to the ladies in their family. Not to be biased or anything. Take Ma and Mum, for example. Ma was the cool and casual to Mum's feminine spirit, yet they both were amazing in their own ways. Suppose her uncle and her male cousins were alright. (Kidding. They're great themselves, but that's not the point.) "Cousin dear, you inflate my ego," Ari teased. "Don't forget you'll be part of the family, too. Soon." Allie would fit right in, Ari wholeheartedly thought so. It takes such a personality.

"I wish I could, but I'm bound to secrecy." Ari had to grin cheekily. Sure, she was teasing again, but it's also true that she couldn't divulge everything she knew about the workings of the Auror office. Confidentiality was a big deal in the kind of tasks they did, even as a mere trainee now, when she assists her Auror-in-charge with cases. "Maybe I'll find out once Ander is old enough." Her tiniest brother, who has only lived about six months on Earth, did not need so much chasing around just yet. Ari certainly did not look forward to those inevitable days, years from now. "Though I am offended you don't think I look incredible already." Wow, cousin! Once again, all in jest.

It wasn't specifically the Hogwarts experience per se. It was just...school, and the timing of it all. Ari struggled a lot in her fifth year, not just because she had been a fresh transfer but also because she dealt with OWLs on that very same year. It was a lot of adjustment on her part, which...led to some unfavourable dark days and bad decisions. But that was in the past. To Allie's question, Ari shook her head. "No, I don't regret transferring." She made some very good friends in Hogwarts. She also met Tommy. Most importantly, she was with Rora. Some problems along the way simply paled in comparison to the wonderful things she gained from it all.

Allie had no doubts that she’d fit perfectly into the Ackerly family. She’d been dating Matty for ten years now, best friends for fifteen and had practically grown up around the siblings that she already felt like she belonged anyway. She also had that Ackerly spirit, the only other Gryffindor besides Matty (and her Ma, Kat). Honey, bless her, tried but if she had been magical she would’ve been a Hufflepuff for sure. “I’m just saying that I’m a very lucky girl to be accepted into such an amazing family.” Not that she didn’t adore her own of course, she was close to her own siblings too, it was just that she saw the Ackerlys more. “And don’t act all coy, you know you are,” she teased back. Two can play at that game.

The blonde tucked into her food as she listened intently to what the other woman had to say. “I meant I empathise.. Don’t worry, I’m not going to force any Ministry secrets out of you,” she chuckled. She wouldn’t know what to do with them if she did know them anyway, it wasn’t like she was easily taken advantage of. Besides, if anyone came for her she had a Hit Witch in her corner.

She smiled fondly at the mention of the newest member of the family. Layla had brought the baby over to Bradley a month or two after he was born when the pair had been visiting. Allie, naturally, was all over Ander for cuddles but thankfully it hadn’t created the urge for children of her own or else Matty might’ve thought about revoking that engagement ring. “Oh just you wait, you’ll be begging to move out.” Or maybe she was already? “Shut up, you know what I mean!” Allie playfully rolled her eyes.

Thankfully Allie couldn’t relate to any issues with her education. She had managed to breeze her way through without stressing herself about her exam results. She wasn’t the most intelligent student but she wasn’t dumb either so had put no pressure on herself to be perfect. “That’s good. I’d hate to hear you thought Beauxbatons was better, I’d be ready for a fight” she laughed. Allie might’ve looked like a Beauxbatons girl with her dazzling smile, femininity and perfect blonde locks but she would’ve got bored of the routine pretty quickly.

Allie might’ve looked like a Beauxbatons girl with her dazzling smile, femininity and perfect blonde locks but she would’ve got bored of the routine pretty quickly.
Well, of course Allie had to be accepted into the family. "Honestly can't imagine it going any other way." Allie had just seemed to be there for as long as Ariadne could remember, really. A wedding would simply make things official on paper. "I know I am. Doesn't mean I don't like hearing it," Ari said with a grin, before helping herself to some of her yogurt. And she really did. Nothing wrong with an ego boost from time to time, alright?

She also knew Allie wouldn't force her to share the secrets of the Auror office, either. The exchange was all just for fun. Neither was Ari the type to spill the tea. She, too, valued privacy, thanks very much.

It was no surprise that Ander already had people in the family wrapped around his stubby baby finger. Nobody would have expected Ma Layla to carry a child to term, let alone a baby boy at that. The universe truly worked in its mysterious ways, how the stars simply aligned for such things to happen. So amusing. "I'm in no hurry to move out, excuse you." Ari let out a soft laugh. Ma and Mum needed her around to help with Ander, and Ari didn't think she was ready to stand on her own two feet yet. Fresh out of school, only just bagged a job in the ministry. She was only starting out with the adult life. It's also nice to not worry about starving, even though the food in the Ackerly house were only the healthiest of options. "Do I? Do I really know?" She knew, but Ari liked to tease. And what about it?

"Hey, Beauxbatons has its merits. Hogwarts does not have a fencing team." Ari missed being able to do that regularly, when she first started at Hogwarts. "Also, the weather there is better." Scotland was cold, and that had been the first observation Ari made when she first stepped out of the Hogwarts Express when it pulled into Hogsmeade station at the start of her fifth year. "Had to be proficient with heating charms in my first week." It was all funny, looking back at it now. No complaint, though. Heating charms? Very useful. Ask anyone.
