At the very bottom of the Headmaster's spiraling staircase there sits two stone gargoyles with bezoars circling their feet. Ugly (but in a rather endearing way) and enormous, these creatures keep out those who do not belong.

You will not pass this way without a password.




Post here if you are waiting, but please do not chat here. The seating area is for conversation.

Well, tradition was as tradition was set. And besides that, Tate had asked him to come up when he could. So, here he was, staring up at the stone gargoyles for the upteenth time in his history at Hogwarts. Scrunching his face up, he peered at the beasts, wondering just what Tate's password might be. He had never heard the man utter it, for good reason, but one would think that after so many visits he may have heard it at least once. Apparently not. Fine handiwork though. Something to be marveled at indeed.

Mhmm.

Yeah, he was still coming to see Tate, no matter how much of a jerk he still believed him to be.

For now.

Jake saw another student waiting by the gargoyle and lent back against a wall a little way away, waiting for his turn as he folded his arms and stared straight ahead at the wall.

His sunglasses were back on.

"Lads," Tate strolled down the hallway from the direction of the stairs, giving both boys a nod and a wave. Prompt, which he appreciated. He could have done without the sunglasses indoors and the sullen face from Upstead, but perhaps the boy would relax a bit while he waited.

"Dakest, you're first." The gargoyle sprang to the side to allow them both entry to the office upstairs.



ooc: You can go ahead and post in the office

It wasn't long before yet another student showed up at the gargoyles; one he recognized. Jake. He gave the boy a small smile and nod. They both seemed to be up in this area of the castle fairly often.

Not much time was given to mull memories over though as Tate appeared and ushered him up to the office. Now going up the stairs to the office, there were plenty of memories to be had.

Lexi sidled up to the gargoyles and sighed. She was probably a big old dummy for seeking this dude out... but here she was anyway. Fidling with her sleeve of her hoodie she looked at the gargoyles closely WILLING them to move for her. No such luck. Oh well, she would wait patiently for Mr. Ikenna Gevrik to come grant her entrance. Sighs. Why the heck was she here anyway? She wanted to ask the man some questions and why wait to get them?

"Present."

In good humour, for now, Ikenna stepped out from the stone gargoyle with an eerie promptness. His hands were calmly folded behind his back as he waited for the Gryffindor to speak next.

She was wearing a hooded, slouchy sort of shirt. Hmm. Noted.

Okay... that guy was still kind of creepertastic, but she had no real reason to think he was a bad person, per se. Give him the benefit of doubt, Lexi. Okay. Giving the man a bright smile she said, "Good day, sir. I was wondering if I could speak with you..." About what she wasn't really sure. She supposed as the stupid Gryffindor she was, she just wanted to interrogate the man. Or get some advice about a potential future in the Ministry of magic. "...Like in your office or whatever," she continued as she shifted uncomfortably, her pink converse making a squeaking noise as she did so.

The squeaking was reason enough for Ikenna's sharp eyes to notice the girl's shoes. They were hardly part of the school uniform...interesting. Was Lexi a rebel looking for a cause beyond the Hogwarts dress code?

"I think I could arrange that," he agreed, smiling for her sake. "Come."

Oh! He smiled. Lookit that. How lovely. Why was he staring at her shoes though? That was kind of strange. Classes had not begun, so she didn't wear her robes and such until they had. DUR.

Shaking her head she followed the man through the entrance with a little bounce in her step. Seeee there was a way to handle your curiosity so that no one was offended. Just be polite when you ask questions that are not really your business. teehee.

As Selina was walking down the pathway to find her way back to the common room she heard low voices. She recognized them as the man who was from the ministry that spoke at the feast. He was very mysterious and all she could think about was the old Headmistress Dolores Umbridge she had read in one of her history books. Whenever the government intervened something was wrong. The only problem was, no one knew what.

The small redhead hoped that he would not take notice of her Quidditch practice clothes or for that matter her. She was a fiesty redhead when stirred up, but this man scared her and she wished to avoid him at all costs.

He returned the bow of the head and took a light step forward to shake Lexi's hand, gently, as he shook all ladies' hands.

"I would appreciate that, Lexi, and again, do not hesitate." His smile could be described as almost...friendly, and egalitarian. "Of course I will do the same. I'm sure I'll be seeing you around the castle but for now, please, allow me to show you out."

'Showing her out' meant politely ushering the Gryffindor out the door and securing it with his usual quick array of enchantments and charms. Once the office was sealed, Ikenna accompanied Lexi back to the stone gargoyles and waved her off.
She shook the man's hand a bit firmly and smiled a bit more genuinely at him. Not missing the HINT there she released his hand and turned to make her way out of the office. Once at the gargoyles she turned to say, "Thank you again, Mr. Gevrik. I will see you soon, I am sure."

Turned out the bloke was downright friendly when he wasn't doing that weird towering over you and staring thing.

Kurumi saw Selina sneaking around, but figured it was probably best to ignore her seeing as she appeared to not want to be seen. Holding the Quibbler she had bought from the food trolley held in her right hand and her left hand in her pocket where Momotaro was sleeping soundly, Kurumi approached the stone gargoyle wondering which person would be best to talk to. Headmaster Tate was much more than just her professor, he was also the caretaker of the school and his job was to know what was out there in the wizarding world that could effect the students within these walls. Yet, Sir Nicholas has told Kurumi that Mr. Ikenna Gevrik was a very well respected member of the Ministry of Magic, perhaps he even knew her father, Charles Hollingberry. He probably could answer her questions about the statue and the posters she had seen in Diagon Alley.

Looking up, nervously, Kurumi didn't know what to do next. Was one of them going to appear from the mouth of the gargoyle?

Yes, he was here. Jake had no intentions of forgetting his questions and this Ikenna bloke had actually treated him like an equal, which most of the staff seemed to forget to do.

But not all of them.

Jake had not forgotten his sunglasses at all. But he had expected to go straight up there... and now there were PEOPLE here. So he wouldn't get answers quite as quickly as he had been expecting.

Anyway. Adjusting his Ray Bans on his face (the awesome red and black checked ones), and leaning against the wall much like his father always did, Jake waited patiently. Once again he'd ditched his outer robes but wore the muggle-type uniform. The robes always made him feel sluggish when he was tired.

Now just to wait for Ikea Ikenna.

"Same to you, Miss Denver." Ikenna gave Lexi a warm smile good-bye and then turned to the other students that had assembled nearby. They were dressed slightly more formally than she, with the exception of the lurking Quidditch player. She did not seem to want to be noticed, however, and so Ikenna pretended not to see her from down the corridor.

Stepping forward, Gevrik quietly made himself noticed to the two students waiting and looked from the young Gryffindor female to the older Hufflepuff male.

"Since you both are wishing to speak to me..." he addressed them politely, extending his arms in a welcoming manner, "would either object to entering my office at the same time? I am assuming you both have similar questions."

He was familiar with Kurumi anyway, wasn't he?

And since Ikenna had asked him that more politely than Jake had been expecting, Jake responded with, "And would you object if I kept my sunglasses on?"

No promises that he'd take them off, though.

Satine walked up...no clicked up in her heels...to the Gargoyles. These things always gave her chill. In her mind, they needed leis or something around their neck. It just drove her crazy...they were just tooo...well...too blah!...

She stood staring at the boring and normal things, hoping that someday they would show a little bit of magic and wink or flap their wings or just something instead of stand there like a ...well a pair of Stone Gargoyles...how disappointing to hide entrances to the HeadMaster and the new mystery man and just be Stone Gargoyles. She let out a sigh and then glanced around...

Well, if I was going to see the Headmaster, I'd have a password, but since I've come to see the Ministry Security Man what do I do?...she stared blank face and then had an idea. She stood next to one of the Stone Gargoyles and leaned in to it's ear and whispered, "ummm...Satine Farris here to see Mr. Ikenna Gavrik" she whispered sounding out each syllable of the man's name.

She leaned back and rolled her eyes glancing over her shoulder to make sure no one saw how ridiculous she looked whispering sweet nothings in an ugly stone's ear. And then she felt extremely dumb as she noticed the new mystery man talking with two other students just over her shoulder,... way to pay attention...

She stepped back with a very red face and stared at the three of them not sure if she should interrupt or wait...

Kurumi nearly jumped out of her robes when she heard the man's voice. Turning around on her heels, Kurumi bowed at a 90 degrees in greeting. Wait, how did he know she was waiting for him? Kurumi eyed Jake at his comment about his sunglasses. Sunglasses, inside, really? Kurumi wasn't sure she understood the desire to wear them inside, but perhaps it was some sort of British fashion statement that she was unaware of.

Kurumi nodded her head to Mr. Gevrik's question. "T-T-T-Thanks fine," she whispered gripping the Quibbler a little more tightly.

After his meeting with Tate, he had taken some time to mull things over a good, warm broccoli soup. Now that his brain was back in proper working order, and he wasn't thinking about their conversation, it seemed a good time to pay a visit to Ikenna. The man had said that perhaps they should talk sometime after the feast, and he'd rather ask his questions of the Ministry's security liaison early in the semester rather than late.

With a satisfied stomach and a head full of questions, he made his way back to the stone gargoyles, pausing when he saw Ikenna amongst an already gathered group of students. Popular man indeed. His eyes flicked to a younger girl who seemed apprehensive about joining the gathering, and not sure what to do himself he moved over to lean against the wall near her, sparing her a small smile. May as well keep company while he waited.

No promises that he'd take them off, though.
Jake's response was promising, and yet,

"I do object, just slightly," Ikenna continued affably. "Forgive my potential insensitivity, but I do not sense the need for you to be wearing such a protective device indoors. Unless of course you have the medical need..."

He was implying that Jake did not...and was at the same time making something of an inside joke. Was Ikenna here to protect the children from the harsh rays of natural light?

Kurumi wasn't sure she understood the desire to wear them inside, but perhaps it was some sort of British fashion statement that she was unaware of.

Kurumi nodded her head to Mr. Gevrik's question. "T-T-T-Thanks fine," she whispered gripping the Quibbler a little more tightly.
He turned his attention to the female, now, and returned her bow with a slow tilting of his own head. "Domo arigato; we can head to my office just–"

She stood staring at the boring and normal things, hoping that someday they would show a little bit of magic and wink or flap their wings or just something instead of stand there like a ...well a pair of Stone Gargoyles...how disappointing to hide entrances to the HeadMaster and the new mystery man and just be Stone Gargoyles. She let out a sigh and then glanced around...

Well, if I was going to see the Headmaster, I'd have a password, but since I've come to see the Ministry Security Man what do I do?...she stared blank face and then had an idea. She stood next to one of the Stone Gargoyles and leaned in to it's ear and whispered, "ummm...Satine Farris here to see Mr. Ikenna Gavrik" she whispered sounding out each syllable of the man's name.

She leaned back and rolled her eyes glancing over her shoulder to make sure no one saw how ridiculous she looked whispering sweet nothings in an ugly stone's ear. And then she felt extremely dumb as she noticed the new mystery man talking with two other students just over her shoulder,... way to pay attention...

She stepped back with a very red face and stared at the three of them not sure if she should interrupt or wait...

The man had said that perhaps they should talk sometime after the feast, and he'd rather ask his questions of the Ministry's security liaison early in the semester rather than late.

With a satisfied stomach and a head full of questions, he made his way back to the stone gargoyles, pausing when he saw Ikenna amongst an already gathered group of students. Popular man indeed. His eyes flicked to a younger girl who seemed apprehensive about joining the gathering, and not sure what to do himself he moved over to lean against the wall near her, sparing her a small smile. May as well keep company while he waited.
"–after I speak with these two." Ikenna flashed Kurumi a reassuring smile and tried not to laugh as he addressed the Ravenclaw first.

"How may I help you, Miss Farris?" Technically, she was seeing him now so her goal (as she had informed the stone gargoyles) was already accomplished.

Dakest remained a dark horse, however, leaning against the wall as he was. "Would you also mind accompanying us all to my office, Sabel? It seems we have a tea party in order."

Oh joy.

Kurumi found her jaw dropping a bit as the man spoke to her in her mother tongue, even if it was very brief and it was the type of phrase that you could find in any how to book about the Japanese language. Still, and she wasn't sure why, it had put her at ease. She wouldn't mind the chance to speak her language, if Mr. Gevrik could indeed speak it. Kurumi bowed her head again, this time to show respect, and her grip around the Quibbler loosened.

Satine looked at the man who just being around her made her feel like a little child...his presence was almost suffocating...She met his eyes, "Well, sir, last term I was traveling and studying abroad...and since you are here this term, I just wanted to speak with you about last term and see what I missed that made the Ministry feel the need to send someone to the school. " she said it very plainly with her usual smile on her face...this did bother her a little bit because no one seemed to really talk about last term which was odd since there was a TwiWizard Tourny going on.

Ah...

Well, at least it was only a slight objection.

Jake of course missed out on the implication and definitely on the joke, taking all of that seriously. "Not a medical need per se," he explained, before blandly going on. "I have an issue which makes social interation quite difficult, and eye contact almost impossible. It's also why I come across as rude but that's a different aspect of it. It's on my file, but apparently my professors have overlooked it."

COUGHlafayCOUGH.

"The eye contact issue is why I now wear the glasses," Jake finished, and looked at the other two students.

Ah, Gryffindors. Gevrik was pleased to have the girl with the Quibbler relaxing slightly in front of him; perhaps her ease would transfer to the others here?

Take this...nervous Ravenclaw, for example. She was supposed to be from the intelligent House and yet she seemed to have missed completely the point of his speech at the feast and his reason for being here.

"We must share the same confusion, Satine," he addressed her just as plainly. "Although I am confused as to why you think my being here has anything at all to do with Triwizard Tournament."

If she had been listening then, which she (apparently) had not been, she would have noticed that Gevrik had mentioned a previous history of faulty school security. Last term was the exception to the rule in that no one (to his knowledge) died, was maimed, kidnapped or otherwise openly harmed.

"Things take time to get through the red tape of any bureaucracy," Ikenna tacked on after a few seconds' pause for thought. "I am but a new hire to your Ministry and as such, I am merely going about my job securing all areas the Ministry is responsible for. Hogwarts is high on the list. If you would like more evidence of why, I would suggest a trip to the library or your History of Magic professor."

He meant this in good-humour, of course.

"Well, Jake," he turned back to the Hufflepuff and listened to his excuse with a blank face. "I have also read your file. I am not one of your professors but I do wish to help you, and I think it would be to both your benefit and mine, and that of your fellow students', if you would kindly remove the sunglasses."

He blinked, added a smile, and firmly said, "Please."

...

...

Jake's heart hammered against his chest, probably tattooing a permanent bruise on his ribcage. But nevertheless, he reached up and pulled the sunglasses from his face, revealing his blue eyes which did not rise to meet Gevrik's again.

Tucking the sunglasses into his collar, Jake looked intently at the face of the gargoyle for now, very occasionally glancing at Ikenna.

He knew exactly what the man was... wanting eye contact and seeming to talk correctly about things people hadn't mentioned, before now as well. But he wouldn't mention it yet.

Heck, maybe Ikenna already knew Jake knew.
