Default Office of Department Head Emily Browne



The sealed off exit from the main platform of Alexandra Palace station doesn't boast the prestigious dcor of the Department Head's Ministry office. The hideous cream and maroon tiles the line the walls are grimy and chipped in places – and that's if they haven't been plastered over in parts. There are a few spindly wooden folding chairs and a dull second hand desk at one end of the room, a small filing cabinet sits in the corner and trunk for general storage sits by the door. Unless you know the password of the hour and/or are apt in the art of defensive charms and counter-curses then access to this area of the platform is limited, that is unless you're willing to part with one of your limbs.

Department Head Emily Browne is more inclined to spend her time on the communal work floor, so unless you have an appointment, you'll be hard pressed to find her here. Though this space may be used for private meetings and small conferences in general.

Holding a toothbrush in his hand, which was his own toothbrush, Josh found the office for his boss lady. It being his own toothbrush, of course, did not mean it was the one he used to clean the urine, it was the toothbrush he used everyday to brush his own teeth. Good thing he had no time to brush his teeth before he left home and had taken it with him to brush his teeth at work. It smelled of mint toothpaste, no urine. He supposed Emily would like that....

...unless she would be uncomfortable with something that had been in his mouth touching her belongings in her office. Josh did not think her belongings could be in better condition than his mouth so it was unlikely that she would resent it in his idea. First he raised the toothbrush and knocked the door with its handle a few times then deciding it was not loud enough, he knocked the door three times properly with his knuckles.

She there?

It seemed the door she'd placed on the entrance was serving its purpose. Keeping people out. Undesirable people who PEED in public places. Needless to say, she wasn't in her office this time, having just finished her rounds. No, she'd followed him down here, to her neck of the tunnel. "Good to see you've come prepared," she commented from a short distance behind him. After a pause in which she smirked smugly, Emily descended the last of the stairs to his side and saw to unlocking her door, thus granting him access to cleaaaan.

She'd enjoy this.

"If you need to pee, I suggest you go potty now," she added, waltzing in ahead of him and locking a file in her pesky small filing cabinet.

Then again, it couldn't smell much worse down here.

Josh waited but there was no answer. Oh, c'mon. If the boss lady made him wait for too long, he might have the urge to pee again and he still didn't know where he was supposed to relieve such a natural need down here. But then he heard her voice coming to his ears behind him. He turned around smiling a small smile and raised his toothbrush to show it off to her.

"Of course. With this baby everything will be super clean. So clean that you can..." "...pour jam on your desk and lick it..." No. He stopped himself before he could complete that sentence. "Anyway, i promise it will be clean." And it was not the toothbrush he used to clean urine. He walked in once the door was unlocked and looked around. Where was he supposed to start with first?

Did he need to pee? He paused for a moment to listen to his body. Did his body tell him he needed to pee? "Hmmm...no. I don't think so. Not right now."

But he was not sure about later. He made a mental note about asking Evelyn if she could watch the amount of liquids he consumed

Emily's brows shot up at the mention of this baby ... his claims were already full of optimism. Carter did have her attention and she was rather curious to see where his statement would land him, only, he didn't complete it. Such a shame. Either way, she could fill in the blanks herself, the effect would still be the same. "I'm glad to hear it," she replied, casually taking her seat. Despite the destitute nature of her office, and the department in general, there was something oddly charming about it.

It also came as a relief to her that Carter was done with peeing for now, though she wasn't sure how seriously she could take the auror anymore. A light grunt was all she gave in reply.

"I suggest you start with the tiling, I'd like to see my reflection on its sparkly surface." Mmhhmm. Even though the sound of sparkly was positively revolting, this was his punishment for marking her territory.

Glad to hear it.

Of course, she was because Josh Carter was going to make this place clean enough to her satisfaction. He never resented such tasks even though most people tended to find it humiliating and/or laborious. Almost all his life, he spent his days out of school working in his uncle's farm, a farm boy he was, and his muggle uncle and his family, though they loved him, considered him free labour. He cleaned stables and barns sweeping animal poop, he groomed animals, he chopped wood, he built wooden cottages and barns, he worked in vegetable gardens and grain fields. He also could remember his aunt wanting him to clean the house and feed his cousins. Muggle work, no magic.

No, he did not resent the fact that he had to clean his boss lady's office with a toothbrush.

But sparkly surface? The Auror knelt down and brushed a part of the tile he was standing on. "I don't know if i can make this floor sparkly but i will try." and next he was all on four, brushing the floor. The dirt was thick, so he gave his brushing some strength and pressure with a brawny arm. "Don't misunderstand me..." he said as he worked "...i don't mean to be disrespectful. I just think it would do good to you know; i think you don't need to see your reflection to make sure you look good. You always do."

Was that a dead bug lying there?

Leaning back in her decrepit chair, Emily kicked up her feet and rest the heels of her boots on the corner of her desk. One crossed over the other. She was quite at her leisure... yes. In fact, this all seemed a little cliche, and while it was usually something she loathed, she could see the humour in the present situation. It wasn't every day she could watch someone slave away, cleaning her floors, by hand.

Good work Carter, show some elbow grease.

"Try is all I ask," she confirmed, because in truth, the tiles probably didn't even have the ability to sparkle, having been abandoned for something close to a century.. something like that. The place was OLD, abandoned for so long she was in fact surprised it still existed. Taking up her letter opener, and an envelope that sat on her desk, Emily set about examining its contents when Carter spoke again. She looked up, indifferent, before setting her sights back on the documents.

Wait.

What?

Emily raised a brow. Was he insinuating that she was vain? Had that been the case her office would already be plastered with shiny new mirrors, not grimy old chipped tiles and concrete. "How... touching..." she noted, not at all accustomed to receiving compliments, and about her looks no less. "But I assure you, my appearance is the furthest thing from my mind." Pfffftttttt. Seriously. She couldn't care less.

Yeah, it looked like a dead bug.

Josh was about to reach and pick the dead bug up when Emily spoke. Try? "Yeah, i can do that" and with this he started to brush the floor harder. Hmm...he wondered how long brushing the whole office floor with a toothbrush was going to take and if Emily would let him crawl in his office that long. It depended on her anyway so he just kept working, eyeing the bug. The bug was a part of the dirt on the floor.

This time he reached and picked up the dead bug. Poor fellow. Maybe he could not find anything to eat down here and starved to death. Stopping for a moment, he stared down at the bug in his palm as Emily commented about his compliment to her looks. She didn't care. Eh...he shrugged. He never took the boss lady for a woman who would melt at compliments anyway. "Just felt like mentioning." he said as he rose up. Then he opened his palm to show the bug to the boss lady "What do you want me to do with this?"

Despite this being a punishment for peeing in the workplace, Emily was almost tempted to reward Carter for his efforts. He was conducting himself like a gentleman, even with the task she had delegated for him. But alas, there would be no reward, simply just her forgiveness for peeing on her floor. Because even if she didn't consider herself a lady, peeing on floors where people were forced to work, was gross. "Think you missed a spot..." she joked, watching him watch something on the floor. Did he uncover a clean spot? Was there some hope for the place?

....

.....

No. It was a bug. How dull. Emily returned her attention to the documents, reading its contents with knitted brows, though she was still listening to Carter. Felt like mentioning it? ... Alrighty then. She wouldn't complain, but she wasn't about to encourage the behaviour either. Instead, it went ignored. Until.. he didn't know what to do with the bug?

Hazel eyes locked on his, Emily let a moment of silence pass between them. She very dearly wanted to tell him to eat it, but out of fear that he would actually follow through with the suggestion, she refrained from doing so. "What would you do with it under normal circumstances?" she asked, figuring he was simply jesting and wasn't really at a loss as to what to do with the thing.

Missed a spot?

That made Josh look down again. Impossible. Maybe he could be a bit carefree while doing things that he considered boring but he always did his labour work properly and carefully. Maybe she was just messing with him, he did not know. He had never been the kind to properly understand stuff like irony and...word games and...eh...stuff like that. "Once i am finished with the whole floor, i can make a second sweep to make sure i have not missed a spot." he said taking her words completely seriously. Duty was duty. He didn't mind it if it would be dirty....and kind of frustrating.

When his boss asked the question, the Auror eyed the poor, small and dead creature in his palm. Under normal circumstances. "Well...i live in a forest cottage so seeing a bug is not a new thing to me. Under normal circumstances, i would leave it on a proper spot in the forest to let any animal in need to feast on it."

But this didn't help. This was no forest. But there were rats around as one of the YATIs mentioned. He dropped the bug in his pocket. "If that's what you want me to do. I can feed it to a rat should i see one." Then he knelt down again and continued brushing the floor.

She always knew Carter was hard working, dedicated and loyal... and that was clearly evident in his offering to clean her floor by hand for a second time. But Merlin ... it would be a waste of time. Cleaning it in the first place was a waste of time. So naturally, she wasn't going to let him go through with it. No. Just a littttttlleee longer, for the sake of her own amusement if nothing else. "Of course, what an excellent idea," she replied, not at all ready to burst his cleaning bubble.

....

Emily blinked, hazel eyes looking from his face, to the bug, back to his face, back to the bug. He had a proper spot for them? Where he lived in the woods? Legit? Wasn't on the floor or out the window proper spots? Or was there somewhere more specific and more appropriate?

In the moment she was contemplating his confession, Emily saw him drop the bug in his pocket.

His pocket. A bug.

"By all means feed it to a rat, or slip it in Branxton's coffee for donating mine." The latter was a joke, but since Carter was perhaps oblivious to those, or at least to hers, perhaps she ought to clarify. "But no, dispose of it however you see fit, though I have to admit I find it odd you thought to pocket it."

If she liked the idea then it was his duty to sweep the place for a second time. Well...that was no trouble. He could be done with it quickly as it would be easier for the second time and go back to his business. He nodded at her and returned to his work. He saw the look Emily gave him and the bug but it did not surprise him as people always looked at him as if he was a lunatic whenever he picked up a bug. At least Emily's look was not that judging.

"I will feed it to a rat then" he said as he brushed off an stubborn dark stain on the floor that insisted on not to be cleaned. He used more force on the dirt stain thing as he considered his boss' words. Slip it in Branxton's coffee? No...no. He would not do that. Just he was about to give her an apologetic look to say he couldn't do that to the YATI lady, Emily decided against it so he kept his job of fighting with the dirt. "I wouldn't have followed that order anyway. Sorry boss." That he was being honest with. "I could take the punishment for not following orders instead of feeding the bug to her."

It was odd that he pocketed it?

"I am keeping it safe for the rats around. Maybe not fresh but it's food for them" getting angry about the dirt, he pressed the toothbrush a bit more and..


*POP*

The toothbrush broke right at the point where he pressed it. The part he was not holding bounced of the floor and hit his forehead.

"Owwww..."

Getting hold of her daily planner, Emily flipped through the seemingly empty pages idly until she came to rest on the present day, a tap of her wand revealing the appointments and to-do's she had planned. Go figure, watching Carter clean, was not on the list, but it was an amusing addition.

It was only as Carter continued talking that she realised how perfectly ordinary and yet soooo weird he was. The man simple. There was no doubting that, but he had his own flavour of crazy in the mix. He could feed the rats, that wasn't her problem... and the fact that he'd tell her no to spiking Branxton's coffee with a bug, well now, that was amusing and incredibly noble. "Such a gentleman," she acknowledged with a nod, eyes still on her planner.

She only looked up at an abrupt popping sound. What in the.... ????

....

Whatever it was, she'd missed it. But what she could see, helped her deduce what had happened. Cater, floor, brush, head off brush, and then there was the ow. It had broken and hit him - she wasn't sure weather to laugh or roll her eyes.

"You know... I think I prefer my tiles dirty... how about you head back and do some real work now, yeah?"

Gentleman...

That he was. But he was surprised to hear it from Emily. So he looked up at her and blinked at her face. Was it sarcasm and he didn't get it again? Ummm...no, her expression did not look like that it had been a sarcasm. So the Auror smiled proudly at her to show he appreciated her words. He didn't want to voice his appreciation just in case Emily would somehow find it annoying and regret saying him anything like that. Emily was very professional after all and he was not sure about her boundaries of personal talk win the working place.

But the toothbrush popping in two was pretty disappointing and, more than that, embarassing. Not even thinking of giving up though, he picked the tiny toothbrush head and tried to clean the floor with it ignoring the slight tingly feeling in the middle of his forehead. He looked up when Emily spoke.

Oh no...

She thought he failed her, did not she? He stood up on his feet looking all embarrassed. he felt awful when he couldn't complete a task that someone he favoured told him to do.
"I am really sorry, Emily. I didn't expect that. I will find a better brush." Oh...she wanted him to do something work related "Will do, boss.". Pocketing the pieces of the broken toothbrush, he took a few step backwards towards the door. "Do you have any specific orders? Anything you want me to do?"

Concealing her planner notes once more, Emily snapped it shut and secured it in her drawer. She actually had places to be, so now was as good a time as any to kick the auror out, nicely, of course. His lack of response to her compliment didn't go unnoticed, his blinking was very telling. Emily brushed this off, literally, brushing off the dust and dirt that had rubbed off onto her legs from beneath her desk. Ewww.

"There's no need, really... with any luck we won't be here much longer anyway, so no point in settling in." She was a big girl, she could handle a bit of dirt without getting her knickers in a twist. Emily crossed the room, coming to a stop beside Carter in the doorway. Anything specific? "I belieive you have Security duties do you not?" she asked, "That aside, it might be worthwhile getting the YATI some dueling practice."

She'd been about to push past, leading the way out. But she paused....

"Carter?...." she asked, turning back to him slowly.

Well...he knew this was not a permanent working place for the department yet still, Josh did not feel any better about failing the task she had given her. Maybe...when he was done with most of MLE work and had a break sometime, he could get in her office and clean up the place to properly to make up for it. He was not going to mentioned that idea of himself for now, though. Hmmm...he could spend a lunch break cleaning and if he had better cleaning stuff, he supposed he could be done with it during that lunch time.

He nodded at her words. He had already gotten the message that he was supposed to leave anyway and yes, he had his security duties. One simply did not stall security duty as it could lead to not-so-fun outcomes. Duelling practice for YATI. The auror smiled. "I will gather them once everyone is satisfied with this helping security work. I also think they need some physical exercise. Stamina is important and they need to build some." Yeah, he didn't want a weak bunch of crying kids when they suffered a cut or ones that easily got exhausted when challenged physically.

He waved a goodbye at her casually and was about to leave when he heard her utter his name again. Forgotten something. He turned and faced her. "Yes, boss lady?"

Seeee, this is why she liked Carter. He was loyal and dependable. He was a yes man, but had the guts to say no on occasion - bugging Branxton's coffee being one such example. So the fact that Carter was eager enough to get back to work, without complaint after going through with her cleaning charade and suggest he work more closely with the YATI... well that was commendable. Though, it was part of his job description as YATIL, but it pleased her that his vision mirrored hers. She wanted the Department to be the best of the best, and for the YATI to become part of the elite, they would need to work for it. "Excellent, of course, break them in with combat skills first, stamina will soon follow... perhaps devise a daily pre-work training schedule for them." Heck, it's what she had done for herself when she was a YATI. But not everyone was as cut out for the task as she had been, and not everyone had the same motivation to throw themselves into their work like she did...

The wave, barely registered, but she smirked as she caught him turning back. "Just wanted to express my appreciation for your loyalty .... and work ethic... I know I can always rely on you to get the job done," yep, and with that, she placed a hand on his shoulder, awkwardly, drawing him nearer into a one armed hug.. hug? Why was she hugging him? Wait, he still had that cockroach in his pocket, didn't he? Great Circe.

Ahem.

"If you tell anyone about this... you're a deadman," she whispered half jokingly in his ear before pulling out of the hug!thing she initiated.

"Now go, get going.."

No more dilly dallying!

Combat skills, of course.

"They will be challenged in every means of combat possible." he said with a serious nod. "I watch their performance and depending on their individual skills, i will make sure they push their boundaries some to gain improvement." Pushing boundaries was the one great way to improvement in Josh Carter's book. You just simply tried hard and harder, aiming a higher goal everytime and faced your weaknesses to get rid of them. However, he had the feeling that a daily pre-work training schedule could be...slightly...excessive. He didn't want to overwork them, cause them to be exhausted all day and lose the spirit for the whole thing. "I will work on it." he said though, as he could arrange a pre-work exercise for them three or four days a week, if not for every single day.

Unable to help it, he looked at her with questioning eyes when she smirked. What was going on? Was there something funny on his face? Maybe a piece of the toothbrush or...a bug. But then she spoke and....

Oh wow...

That he did not expect...at all. Before he could even recover from hearing such a genuine compliment from Emily Browne, and it was not the first one for the day, he froze momentarily when she simply...kind of...hugged him. Forcing himself to snap out of the shock, he decided to hug her back because not doing so was rude, was not it? When the shock was over though, he started to feel really proud. "Thank you, Emily." he said with a warm and proud smile. "I will always do my best to be worthy of your words." He was trying anyway.

The auror chuckled a bit at her whispered words. Of course he would be a deadman and he supposed it could be worse than those pests that walked in the KA could give to him. "Well understood." This was kind of awkward but it felt good. He felt much better and very well encouraged to work now. "I will see you later when i have things to report." he said and left the office feeling like a kid that had just been praised for being a good boy.

Again, his words were music to her ears. It was evident she'd done the right think in offering him YATIL... even in spite of his sometimes brazen behaviour and even a certain disregard when it came to physical confrontations. Common Wizarding Law may have been his weakest unit, but it was hers too... and she turned out better than alright. The YATI were in good hands.

She could hardly believe her own actions, but the fact that he reciprocated it by returning the hug ............... she was...... lost. His words of thanks were met with a low mumbled grunt, and she took a step back from him as they parted. His expression was enough to assure her that this hug thing was at least appreciated on his part. Good, the effort wasn't wasted. And better yet, he understood to keep his trap shut. The last thing she needed was people thinking she'd gone soft. She was not going soft!

"Excellent, good... good good," she acknowledged smiling politely as she locked her door behind them, conscious of the fact that she had an appointment to get to. She watched him leave, giving him a ten second head start before she too went on her way.

Before Ashby headed back to his department, he decided to make a diversion to Magical Law Enforcement. His intuition told him that those two men would be back. And that did not go down well with him. Whilst he understood people needed tours. They did no need a tour of his department. Not know. The ministry tours made sense in the ministry, where all the departments were together. But not know. And this wasn't even a ministry sanctioned one. Clearly the men had just decided to come look at his department. And he did not approve.

Therefore he wanted some assistance. He wandered along, and down into the area that MLE was. At least it was more well kept that the ministers office. Ahh. Here was the department heads office. Stopping, Ashby knocked the doo

She'd been in for FIVE MINUTES. Five lousy minutes... and was itching to get back out. The only advantage to being locked out was perhaps the fact that her paper-work load was only a third of what it would normally have been, so for that, she was thankful. Still. The air down here was stale, and it was making her feel stale.

"Enter," she announced at the sound of knocking, tending to the modest stack of paperwork before her. Frankly, it was ready to be filed. This is why she needed a PA.

...

A moment passed when she realised she'd made the room soundproof, thus her enter was irrelevant. Closing the distance to the makeshift door, Emily opened it all the while tinkering with the filing cabinet beside the entrance. "Ahh, Ashby, what can I do for you?" she asked casually, a nod of her head indicating he ought to step inside her poor excuse of an office.

Ahh. Emily was in. That was good. Because it wouldn't have been too good if she hadn't been in her office. He would have had a wasted journey, and he hadn't gotten any work done yet. So he was glad that she was here.

"Hello Emily." He smiled at the younger department head as he stepped into her office. Well. What she was using her office. Ashby was sure she would be glad to be back in her own office. He knew he would be very glad to get back into the ministry. He wanted the comforts back. And to get off that lousy ship.

"I was wondering if you would be able to do some background checks on a couple of ministry employees for me." Because he wanted to know who they were. And what they wanted to know about his department.

Her temporary filing system was simply that, temporary... because she didn't have the motivation or the energy to be OCD without her proper office. It wasn't to say the pesky drawer was disorganised, it wasn't, it just simply wasn't up to her high standards, with colour coding and the like. Emily managed to flash Ashby a polite smile before closing her door behind him. The tunnels echoed, did he know?

...

If there was one thing she could appreciate about the impromptu visit, it was his directness. No time wasting an straight to the point. "Of course, though I have to warn you, it'll take longer than usual... lock out and all." Access to information wasn't at their fingertips, but it wasn't as if it couldn't be obtained by other means. "And who are you requesting a check for?" An employee of his? Perhaps a questionable one at that? Questionable people piqued her interest.

Ahh. He understood. The lockout was causing havoc in his department, so he could imagine what was going on her, especially considering how much paperwork that they must use. Hopefully no trials would be needed to happen just yet. "I understand." He said with a nod. He just hoped that the two men would come onto his ship. Because he would not be too impressed. Would he be able to get them arrested if they did? Trespassing? Something like that? Hmm. He would consider that back at the department.

Ahh. The people. "Joo Neves and William Williamson. They decided they were allowed to come tour my department without permission." And obviously everyone knew about the need to keep people away from his department. Ones that were far to nosy. "I just want to....see if there is anything in their background."

At least Ashby didn't have his knickers in a knot about things, which was more than she could say from some of the others. Moving around to her side of her desk, Emily waved a wand over her daily planner and took up her self inking quill.. Joo Neves ..... she knew that name, she knew that man. Heck, she'd seen him only this morning. And.. Circe help her. "William Williamson you say?" This was curious indeed. "And Joo Neves." Very curious. She didn't even bother noting down their names, she wouldn't be forgetting them in a hurry.

"Might I ask what they've done to elicit this course of action?" she asked, wondering if the dots she was connecting in her head were in actual fact reality. Was this the sneaking around Gavin had mentioned earlier? In which case, Gavin had effectively passed his problems onto her. Brilliant. She still needed to see Harmony about Williamson. He was proving to be a nuisance.
