[[graphics to go here]]

This large room full of cubicles belongs to the Offices for Recreational Sports. This division of the Magical Games and Sports Department handles many of the minor broom games played throughout Britain as well as regulates winged horse racing and broom racing. All of the employees of this division, from public relations to regulations and administration, will be found here hard at work, unless they are out on assignment or observing one of the games. A shiny plaque outside the entrance to the offices informs you of your location.

After getting her coffee and having three morning meetings already done and over with. Victoria decided to take a small walk. The quidditch season was over and now she could concentrate on her Quidditch Summer Camp, tryouts for professional teams and that cute grandson of hers that was now in the ministry daycare.

Yes life was good...


Stepping into the recreational division Vic decided she wanted to see what was going on over here. She knew there was something about horse racing at one point, but she wasn't sure what else was going on. Plus the girls were interested in what children leagues were popping up over summer. They were always interested in trying new things. It was such a nice change then just quidditch that Bart had always been obsessed over.

Fulton was making his way down the corridor and out to the lobby when he nearly ran straight into a woman he hadn't met before. He had been focused on the small pile of paperwork he had in his hand and hadn't seen her until he saw the tips of her shoes as he was looking down when he rounded the corner* Stopping[up short just before bumping into her , " Oh... I'm sorry.. I nearly ran you clean over... ". He had as always a smile and a proffered hand to greet with. " How are you, Victoria? I bet your glad the season's over with, yeah?"

He trying to align the stack of papers when a few dropped loose and floated in three different directions... Sighing and attepting to grasp the nearest page as the current of air grabbed and snatched it just outside his grasp.. " Blast it... "he swore to himself. Always clumsy and awkward he was.. He grabbed the papers and added them to the top of his pile in hand haphazardly.. There was no sense at the moment to try and fix them,. He'd already made a spectacle of himself already..

Straigtening up again with an odd chuckle at himself he smiled, " Sorry about that... I'm a bit of a butter fingers today.."

Did Fulton see her? Vic was about to guard her coffee and move out of the way when he finally did notice. "Hello, yes as much as I love the season and love watching my son play it's always a nice break to have it over. Though with the summer quidditch camp and pro tryouts coming up we stay pretty busy." Plus wanting to finally get the world cup back here was always on Victoria's mind. "Lots of paperwork whether the season is going on or not to." Of course he would know that, paperwork was never ending in every division.

She watched a bit curiously as he played catch with some papers. She would have helped, but it was like a train wreck you couldn't take your eyes away from. So she stood and watched until he stood up. []b "It's alright, but you do know that magic works wonders with carrying papers to different locations."[/b] She gave a warm smile, not that he wouldn't know, but as a manager of the other division in the department.


"So I was taking a small walk around the department and thought I'd pop in here for a moment. How is the horse race things coming?" She was very interested in this. She knew there was plenty of horse racing around, but to do something international was very interesting.

Fulton smiled sheepishly at her reaction to his fountain of papers as he had returned them into a proper pile and glanced down fixing their order as he listened to her.."

It's a neverending back and forth of numbers and don't even get me started on the regulations that are in need of updating... "

She watched him a moment and just smiled, it was fine that he seemed embarrassed she hadn't given it much thought. "I'll let him know." She enjoyed that everyone knew who Bart was even though many of the employees had got to watch him grow. She couldn't help but think about all the things he did here as a kid. Chuckling to herself she looked back to Fulton as he spoke about the horse racing.

"Well as long as it is in the budget and it is going to help bring more money in then it should be approved easily." She had been through many of those meetings so she was fully aware of how it could turnout for him. "Regulations can be so hard to update, but with the right people you'll get through it." She was glad she had a great team to help her out with that stuff.

She looked at the man a bit. He was an interesting one, wasn't he? Had many words but it took a second for Victoria to fully understand them. "With experience it gets easier. The paperwork is usually the hardest part, but you aren't working alone in this division so you'll have help, plus Mariel stays on top of all that. She is a good resource and will approve or not approve all the things before they go out." It wasn't a one man show, which was always good to know for a newer employee. No need to stress them out in the first year at least not to much.

She nodded as he talked about the other coworkers, "We did that with quidditch a few years ago. It takes time. The process can be lengthy. Always jumping through hoops to make sure the wording it correct for everyone. In time it all works out though. I regulations took about a year to finish and get fully approved and some of our Quidditch managers still weren't happy." Lucky for her the biggest problem was now sitting in an Australian jail.

Fulton listened and nodded when it was appropriate and was quite thankful for her advice.. everyone within this department had been an immense help to him being able to settle into his new position since having walked in on day one..

" Yes... Mariel has been irreplaceable as a source of knowledge and opinion.." he said , " I speak with her often enough.. I'm sure she's sick of my face by now.. " Fulton joked with a light chuckle... " But I'm in no great hurry about the revisions... I understand they take time and can become arduous at times..." he added as he walked over toward the file cabinet and stowed the paperwork in his hands into the proper folders.

"It's more the pouring over of information that slows me down... But it's necessary to do things accurately"... and with that he shrugged and turned towards his shared office.. " I was on my way down to the Leaky for Lunch.. Care to join me? " He asked. He wouldn't mind a nice lunch with a coworker..

" I was on my way down to the Leaky for Lunch.. Care to join me? " He asked. He wouldn't mind a nice lunch with a coworker..

She smiled and couldn't help the tiny chuckle, "Yes Mariel is very irreplaceable and a very strong woman. Perfect for the department head position. She gets her opinion known and she is not one to back down. She is very much a great person to have on your side with things." She couldn't help but think of the years she had spent working alongside her best friend. How they had come to the ministry not knowing each other and now they were not only coworkers, but best friends and their families were very close.

"Sounds like you are off to a great start though." He seemed like he was a good fit for the department and she hoped he'd make it longer then most around the ministry anymore The turn over rate was something she always wished the minister at the moment would try to figure out.


Looking at her watch as he mentioned lunch she debated. "I was to meet my husband in about an hour for lunch. He works for the mystery department, but I think we could cancel for the day. I would love to join you Fulton, but first could I get the recreational sports that will be available this summer. I know the quidditch one but I was hoping to see if there were any other ones available. Alana isn't much for a broom so I was hoping to find something that might catch her interest." Though she did wonder if she should checkout some local muggle sports as well as thoughts of her possibly being a squib filled her brain.

Fulton smiled and laughed lightly as she spoke of their boss... True enough everything she was saying rung true to his own assesment of Mariel. He found her to be intelligent, matter of fact and overall fair and he was happy to have been placed within her department. " Completely agree there isn't anyone better suited for the position.. She's been such a help already.. "


He listened and thought for a moment about her quandry.. " Hmm... Well.. I have an unofficial list in my office.. Let me verify a few things and I can get a list to you later this afternoon. " Hoping that would be exceptable enough.. At the moment it wasn't even a list , but a mere ragged notes on scrap paper in designated areas of his desk. " Will that do? "


Oh... He hadn't wanted her to cancel lunch with her husband.. He knew how important it was to spend quality time with someone you love was.. He himself just having recently gotten engaged.. He frowned ever so slightly at this.. " Oh.. Well, you shouldn't cancel with him.. We could always go another time... Raincheck?.. " , he asked with a warm smile..

He frowned ever so slightly at this.. " Oh.. Well, you shouldn't cancel with him.. We could always go another time... Raincheck?.. " , he asked with a warm smile..

"She truly is a great woman. We started at the ministry together. I was in PR for quidditch and she was regulations. I didn't know anyone that deserved the promotion as much as she did." It was a bit awkward at first having her as the boss, but they transitioned and things were smooth and happy now. "She is full of helpful knowledge and ideas if you ever find yourself needing them. My desk is always open as well. My expertise is quidditch, but I have helped throughout the sports when needed." She usually helped in Gobstones, but she could try other areas.

"Oh yes that works. Thank you for looking into those for me. My son was nothing but quidditch since he could hold a broom, but my daughters are a bit different. My one especially. They will be nine this summer and Alana... Well she likes her feet on the ground." She couldn't bring herself to say it. She felt like an awful person, she should be able to just say squib, but she couldn't. "I look forward to seeing the list."

Since that was the reason for her being here she turned thinking about the next steps of her day. "It will be fine. Cosgrach probably has things going on and will possibly forget anyway. Just let me send a memo to him and I'll see him after work." They spent plenty of time together so one canceled lunch was no big deal. "Why don't you come over to my desk in say about a half hour and we can head to lunch." That gave her time to get things sorted and a memo sent.

Fulton listened and nodded when appropriate as she spoke* everyone in his department, he had to admit, was very helpful. Not to mention very nice." I'll be sure to keep that in mind..", he said in regards to utilising the talents of his department head. He knew he could always go to Mariel if he needed to but he still was inclined to try and figure things out for himself. He knew full well she was a very busy woman and he wasn't about to cling to the perverbial apron strings. Though he would certainly ask for help if he absolutely needed it." I do appreciate you offering you help if ever I may need it.. I think it's great how everyone is able to work with each other .."Fulton was being completely honest. He felt quite comfortable with the Sports and Games dept. The position suited his character well.


" Alright.. That'll give me the time to compile a short list for you", he said with a smile. It was very nice of her to insist upon his invitation to lunch.He'd been meaning to socialising more with people he worked with. Figuring it would foster better work relations and Perhaps even build a few friendships along the way.. " If you can think of anything your daughter is interested in in the interm let me know.. I'm sure we'll find something she could enjoy doing." Fulton had noted how her voice and demeanor changed while speaking of her daughter. He wasn't about to pry , but he knew there was something she struggled with in regards to the "child that liked her feet on the ground".Perhaps if they were to become friends she might feel like talking about it.

This had to be some practical joke right? The Department of Magical Games and Sports? Zander had been feeling incredibly out of place since his very first day here. The ministry already felt like a HUGE jump for him... But Games and Sports? Uh. Had they misfiled his application when they began sending out placements? He had some experience in the field, but it still felt like a stretch.

Zander Adair made his way towards the Recreational Sports Offices with a big cardboard box in hand. He had finally opted to make his cubicle feel a little bit more like "home" or... Uh, as much as he could so that he could feel even A LITTLE less nervous about the job.

Ahem.

He walked through the entrance rather clumsily, having a hard time seeing over the large box, but managed to stumble his way towards his own cubicle. Ah. Home sweet cubicle.

Sigh.

She was on a mission and checking things off her to do list.
It felt good when she was productive, she still felt like she could keep up with the younger group when she had days like this. Her meetings were going well, her deadlines were being met, and now she was headed to the recreational offices. Victoria turned into the offices on level seven, but instead of heading straight for the Quidditch division she turned and went to the recreational side of things.

Speaking of young, she smiled as she looked around the cubicles and found a familiar face. Zander, Merlin he was Bart's age and now he was working with her. She felt older than dirt at this very moment. "Hello Zander, d you have a minute?" She hadn't seen anyone else from the division so she hoped the young man could help her.

Though before she could ask anything else she noticed he had a box.
"You aren't leaving us already, are you?" Nothing had been mentioned about an employee being fired, transferring, or quitting so she had hoped he wasn't leaving so early in the year.

Once he managed to make it to his cubicle--which was a HUGE struggle tbh--he began looking through his things. Damien was definitely the decorator at home, meaning Zander had no idea how to go about this task. He picked up the HeadBoy badge from the mess of things in the box on his desk and absentmindedly played with it, passing it between his fingers as he tried to place things around in his head. May--"Oh!" the blonde whipped his head around, "I, uh, didn't hear you coming... Victoria," that was her name, right? He was having a lot of trouble keeping track of all the new faces to be quite honest. Yeah. She had definitely startled him, though he wouldn't admit it out loud. Probably didn't need to though, it was pretty obvious.

"Er yeah, I uh, what's up?" HE WASN'T IN TROUBLE, WAS HE??? He dropped the pin back into the box, giving her his full attention. Which was definitely weird. He wasn't exactly sure how much the woman knew about him... But.... His girlfriend worked very closely with her husband... Her husband who was also a Professor Zander happened to have quite a history with... Not to mention her son, the devil incarnate, who Zander also had a very interesting history with. Whose wife Zander ALSO had an interesting history with. But whaaaaaaaaat? This was GREAT. Everything was FINE. Zander LOVED this!!! It was soooooo awesome. HA HA HA. What a small world, right!?!??!

Rip.

Basically.

"What?" He managed a chuckle, albeit a nervous one. "No, uh, definitely not!! Just thought it was about time I added a personal touch to my cubicle, y'know help make it feel a little less stuffy..." That was a normal thing to do... Right?

If there was one thing Victoria never felt she did that was intimidate anyone, on the contrary she always felt she wasn't very intimidating at all so the fact that the young man standing in front of her was acting oddly made her chuckle, "You seem a bit nervous, do you have a meeting coming up?" Maybe he had a meeting with Mariel later or something. She could see how people would be intimidated by her, but really they should be that either.

Anyway, she looked around at his empty cubical and then at the box.
"Well yes, I think March is a good time to realize you are staying and it's time to get things situated." She gave him a friendly smile, "I personally enjoy pictures on my desk. Family smiling at me, so on hard days I can look at that and see my grandson or my children. Maybe a picture of Sophie would be good for here." He was still dating the girl wasn't he?
She tried not to keep tabs on that one, her relationship with Victoria's husband was one she had never approved of, something odd about it that just made her uncomfortable.


Again she moved on with the thought without any mention of anything else.
"I was hoping you may have a schedule of any upcoming recreational leagues. I wasn't sure what seasons were coming up with what in the children sports world. My daughter Elsa is asking about playing something and I wanted to see if Helena was old enough to start any leagues yet." Alana had fully taken n gymnastics and cheerleading, though it had taken some convincing from them to try the muggle sports. Victoria just hoped it would help her adjust being a squib and all.

No yeah, everyone at the ministry was pretty intimidating. Well, the old people anyway. And Zander considered anyone above the age of 27 to be old. Which meant, almost the majority of the employees here. It was something he'd hopefully grow comfortable with soon, but for now... This was still his first adult job and he was still only a few months in. So yeah, nervous. Definitely. "Huh? Oh, no, I-- Well, I do actually need to bounce a few ideas around with her, but I haven't actually gotten a chance to schedule a meeting or anything," he rubbed the back of his neck, hoping that he wasn't coming off as awful as she made it sound.

"Yeaaaah," he laughed off the slight embarrassment that brought a light tint of pink to his ears. "I don't know why I never thought of bringing photos before... It just didn't really occur to me that I could make this place my own." That and between trying to get his feet on the ground, there wasn't too much time for decorating. "But I do think I like it here," he nodded. "Though, I think if I put a picture of Soph up, it might be a bit distracting!" Ha, ha, ha. That wasn't an awkward joke, was it? Zander wasn't sure, he regretted it a little. Ahem. And for the record, he wasn't the biggest fan of the whole Soph and Culloden thing either, by the way, but probably for different reasons. Zander just hated being in the same room with his Professors outside of the whole Student-Professor role kind of thing. It was a lot.

Anyways, what did come to ask him? He was somewhat worried. "Oh," his nerves were slightly calmed after hearing the reason why she had come to him. Who would've thought!?! She approached him at work to ask him about things he was doing for his JOB. How ironic. "Well what is she interested in?" They had a couple of different things set up at the moment. It was still a growing niche but there was plenty to choose from between winged horse racing, Aingingein, Quodpot, and broom racing. Maybe her daughter had a particular sport she was interested in?

And how many kids did they even have!? "Hmmm how old is she?" he asked, moving the box on his desk so that he could look through a stack of papers. There was something in here that could be useful... If he could only find it.

"Well don't be scared to, Mariel is very open to helping her employees and listening to them. She's a great boss and you'll learn many things from her if you listen." Her friend and boss might be a way bit younger than her, but she knew Mariel knew her stuff and she was a great department head. She really was starting to get concerned though, because he seemed so jumpy, was this is first real adult job?


She tried to think about what Bart ever said about Zander. Though it had been so many years ago she couldn't remember. Her eyes moved to the box again, "Well if you plan on staying for awhile then yes you should make it more like home." He thought he liked it here now this, this made her give him eyes. How could you not like this department, they had one of the best group of employees and the best coffee cart, had he tried it? "Well if you have any issues my office is always open." She chuckled when he talked about his girlfriend? Wife? Victoria really wasn't fully sure, to be honest. "Don't think of it as a distraction, think of it as a nice focal point when you need something positive if you are having a bad day. That's what family is, a rainbow in the clouds." She loved and adored her family and loved their pictures.

What was she interested in, that was a good question. "Well I do think flying is up there of course, but I'd like to give them chances at other things as well. Elisa and Alana are ten and Helena is Seven." How were her girls so big already. She couldn't believe it, "Though I don't need anything for Alana, just Elisa and Helena."

“Oh, I don’t doubt that,” he nodded. And hearing that from Victoria did help, a little bit. Zander just needed to get his things organized before he met with his Department Head. Just to make sure that he didn’t go in and mess everything up. Mariel had the ability to fire him, right? Right. And he did not need that this soon into the job. Nope. Zander was planning on sticking around for at least two more months before the threat of firing.

Eeeeer. She was giving him eyes. Was it something he said? Zander said he did like it here, how was that a bad thing? It may have taken a couple of weeks to decide this meant nothing, okay? This Department just wasn’t exactly his first choice. He didn’t feel entirely qualified for the placement he had received and didn’t know if he really belonged here. Uneasiness was an understandable feeling though, considering that many of his colleagues had been pro-quidditch athletes in past lives. Talk about intimidating. “Y’know, adjusting to change is ever easy…. But thank you, I appreciate that,” he replied, trying to make it known that he was thankful for the invitation but also knowing that he’d never actually go to her office for anything. “Very, uh, true,” he could use a few good kind of distractions around here.

“As of right now, there are some smaller-scale broom races coming up on the schedule, those aren’t really on a strict seasonal schedule like the other sports are,” he continue rummaging through the papers. “They may have to wait a couple of months both we’ve also got some recreational leagues for both Ainginein and Quodpot too,” finally he was able to fish out what he was looking for: A schedule. It had some of the necessary information like exact dates for the upcoming months. As he held the paper out for her, he continued, “Between you and me, though, I think they should take a chance at winged horses.” Good way to get familiarized with creatures while still participating in a sport. It was like knocking down two chasers with one bludger!

It was like knocking down two chasers with one bludger!

She had to think for a moment who the division head was for this area or if there even was one and she actually thought it being so new there probably wasn't and Mariel was keeping watch over it. So yes, sending Zander to her first was probably the best. "You know meeting with your division and bouncing ideas is always a great way to figure things out as well." Just a thought she would throw out there and honestly with as young as this team was a leader forming would probably be good for them all.

She got weird vibes from him, but she was hopeful that he would do well. All employees started somewhere and she knew that he was starting in a good place. For some reason, she felt Zander was probably good at recreational sports with less competition, so helping run them would be perfect for him. "Do you know if Fulton is around, I was curious how he was doing with the horse racing." He had been working on that for awhile now and she thought they'd be hearing more news about it soon.


She listened to him and the different options. "I could see them liking broom races." She nodded and thought about it. Quodpot really was not interesting, at least to her, but she could ask them. "Bart would have a fit if his sisters played Quodpot instead of quidditch." She laughed at the thought of her older one getting annoyed by this. Looking at the schedule as she took it from him there were a few things that she felt her daughters might enjoy. Her eyes lifted from the parchment though as he spoke again. "That might not be a bad idea. What girl wouldn't love riding them." She was impressed by his recommendation, "Thank you, Zander, this has been very helpful."

"Hmm," he considered her suggestion with a low hum. "Y'know, it seems like we're always around at different times around here... I guess our schedules don't always align up... Maybe it really would be a good idea to schedule a division-wide meeting," though... Did Zander HAVE to be the one to do it? He was most definitely the youngest AND newest one in this particular division. Couldn't one of the more veteran-staffers take that under their wing? No? Sigh. If there was one thing Zander had learned in his 20 plus years of living... It was that you had to do something yourself if you wanted it to be done. So yeah, he'd probably propose a meeting. Though... He couldn't exactly predict if the others would want to partake in it.

"Errrr...." He looked around for a minute, trying to locate the man. "I... Haven't actually seen him today... He may be meeting with another department head? Maybe he's out on an assignment?" Would now be a bad time to admit that there wasn't a lot of communication between the people working in this area? Nah. "I can, uh, let him know you were asking though... When I see him," he nodded.

"Bart... How's he doing by the way?... Still in... Er... Australia was it?" Zander felt himself tense up slightly at the mention of the boy's name. Despite the fact that their Hogwarts days were long behind them... Zander still had ill feelings towards the guy. Ha ha ha. How great was it that he got to work with Bart's mom!??!?! HAHAHAHAH. IT WAS AWESOME. AHAHAHAHA. Not. "Yeah, um, y'know... It's no problem. That's what I'm here for..." He shrugged.

Just a thought she would throw out there and honestly with as young as this team was a leader forming would probably be good for them all.

She got weird vibes from him, but she was hopeful that he would do well. All employees started somewhere and she knew that he was starting in a good place. For some reason, she felt Zander was probably good at recreational sports with less competition, so helping run them would be perfect for him. "Do you know if Fulton is around, I was curious how he was doing with the horse racing." He had been working on that for awhile now and she thought they'd be hearing more news about it soon.


She listened to him and the different options. "I could see them liking broom races." She nodded and thought about it. Quodpot really was not interesting, at least to her, but she could ask them. "Bart would have a fit if his sisters played Quodpot instead of quidditch." She laughed at the thought of her older one getting annoyed by this. Looking at the schedule as she took it from him there were a few things that she felt her daughters might enjoy. Her eyes lifted from the parchment though as he spoke again. "That might not be a bad idea. What girl wouldn't love riding them." She was impressed by his recommendation, "Thank you, Zander, this has been very helpful."

It must have been fate
that just as he heard his name being mentioned he came into view..
" I knew my ear was ringing for a reason.. " , He smiled.. " I've been busy working on all that.. Is there something I can help you with?"

Yes... It was true.. Fulton wasn't one to socialize with his co- workers much,
if at all. He worked best on his own and within his own processes.. Thankfully his Department Head understood his way of working.. Just so long as he keep her informed of his progress and findings.

" I'm a hard one to to peg for time.. I'm always in and out and really I've been traveling to different tracks.." , He smiled and tried to seem comfortable and friendly, but really inside he was screaming with anxiety.

"It's always a good idea. Collaborating with your team is the best way to be productive. My team meets weekly to go over Quidditch things. With off season we are extremely busy with tryouts, camps, and other off season items that need to be done. So keeping the communication going is always the best way." Though she hadn't been the division manager of the Quidditch area for nothing. She knew what she was doing and she knew she was damn good at it. Thinking about that she made a mental note to send out a few owls to find coaches for the camps this summer.

Her smile did soften at the sound of her son's name, "Bart is doing very well. No, I'm surprised Sophie hadn't said, I would assume Cossy has gushed about the happenings in the Culloden family. Bart has been back here playing Quidditch about two years now. Cinnamon is working in fashion and they have the sweetest one-year-old. He's actually down in the daycare now, I bring him twice a week with me. Cossy is just over the moon about being a grandpa." Plus another generation boy with the Culloden name was a plus.


Her eyes shifted as someone else came into the room, "Your ears were burning." A smile towards Fulton as she looked to both men. "I was just talking with Zander about sports the twins could possibly enjoy, or well at least one of the twins. I'm not sure with Alana what to do just yet." The squib stuff was fully knew still, so they were trying to learn.

Fulton chuckled at her response as he joined them. Hmmm?.. That IS a good question... It had to have been difficult handling the differences in the children while being fair... Fulton would have struggled with it too.. If Gavin were ready to give him the go ahead to look for a candidate to carry his child then he supposed it could be a possibility that that child could end up a squib... Ugh! Just the thought alone scared him.. He could imagine how she felt... But enough of the momentary inner thoughts. He needed to respond.. And appropriately at that.

" Well, if they have a need for speed there's always racing.", he smiled.. Everyone loved a good race... Whether it be on broomback or on foot or in an automobile.. Everyone loved the thrill of a great race.. " There's a lot of exciting things getting started in the flying horse racing circuit. Revamped tracks too... I'm really looking forward to see it grow in popularity. "
