Eleni Yaxley's Office
EYoffice

The Minister for Magic's Office is located on Level 1 of the Ministry, Minister for Magic and Support Staff.

The current occupant is Eleni Yaxley.

Eleni, like the previous residence, despises being cooped up in a room. She has ensured that there's as much 'natural light' in the room as possible, even if she had to achieve this through magic.

Felton isn't sure whether to cry or pretend everything is fine, though to be frank, he's leaning towards the first one. He has a lot on his mind right now and he really doesn't know what to do. Walking in on your father having sex with his co-CEO is damaging enough, but the fact that they did it without caring that he's married – with kids, no less — has shattered every bit of Felton. Merlin, what's his mum going to say or do? He's just lost one parent completely; losing the other will devastate him and — oh Merlin, his sisters. He left them back at the WizCo Building. He should go back and fetch them, it's the sensible thing to do, but his feet have a mind of their own and he powers straight past Eleni's assistant, ignoring her every call as he swings the door to his aunt's office open. His face is pale, eyes are wide, and breathing is shallow, and if Eleni didn't know any better, she'd likely think he's about to have a panic attack. His bottom lip trembles and his eyes are a bit watery. He doesn't say anything, but the dead stare he gives his aunt when he enters the room should be telling enough that something is very, very wrong. "Mmm — I need a —" he stops just short of breaking down and lurches forward, towards the small trash can besides her desk. His wonderful holiday breakfast makes a nasty reappearance inside the can, all chunky and gross and — oh, he isn't done yet. Nope.

Thank Merlin her assistant had warned her of Felton barging in, a small little ring echoed through the room gave Eleni the space to stop whatever she was doing to prepare. Which meant slamming her laptop shut. It was a few days after Christmas and most people were home and Eleni was only in the office for a few hours. She had a dinner planned with Hudson but both had agreed not to see each other beforehand, just to make it a surprise when they saw one another all dressed up. However as she watched Felton empty his stomach into her bin, she began to suspect that date night might have to be postponed. Unlike usual, Eleni was wearing her robes. Free flowing, baggy, and official. Eleni knew something must have happened with the family if Felton had made his way to the ministry of all places. "Felton," she said, almost whispering as she came around the table, a bottle of water appearing in her hand whilst her other hand rubbed his back, waiting for him to finish, putting up with the smell and noise. Look-she's use to it by this point...she's seen her sister go through morning sickness multiple times. "What happened?" She was already offering the water bottle. Eleni didn't want to jump to conclusions but she knew that if someone was hurt. If Kaia was hurt-then she'd have gotten a call.

There's a God-awful retching noise that lasts for a few moments longer until Felton thinks he's lost all his brain matter, too. It's horrible. Even when he peels his face away from the can, he's grimacing, trying not to gag; the smell is horrible. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry," he mumbles. Felton waves his hand weakly, and some of the vomit vanishes, but his disorientation and debilitation hindee his ability to perform the cleaning spell properly. "I shouldn't have come. I'm — I didn't know where else to go. Mum, she —" Felton stops talking then, and shakes his head; he can't even say it. "I'm sorry." Merlin, his dad might be an awful person, but he isn't any better, barging in like that without a care in the world and just defiling her trash bin. "Merlin, I'm sorry. I don't — I don't know what to do — dad, he..."

Eleni almost pushed the bottle into his mouth. "Drink, for Merlin's sake," she said. Eleni was well aware how much a person's hydration levels decreased. "What happened to them? Are they okay?" Eleni frowned before dragging over a chair through magic. "And it's fine-it's deserted here anyway, no one's going to find you here." Eleni was rather surprised that Felton thought to come here but she got the sense that something had gone terribly wrong if it meant Felton couldn't turn to either parent.

Felton nods numbly, feeling too sick to have it in him to object. He rinses his mouth out first to get rid of the disgusting acidic taste in his mouth, and only after he's done that does he take a few sips of his water. "Dad — er, Clarence — he — he didn't... I went with A and D to the — the WizCo building, to surprise him, but he was... Merlin, what am I going to tell mum? My sisters? I didn't even bring them with me. I should've - I should've brought them. I don't know why I didn't," Felton, in his frustrations, balls his hands up into fists and rubs his eyes furiously. Even when he starts to see weird little shapes and his eyes start to hurt, he's too upset to really stop himself from causing any lasting damage to his sight. "He was sleeping with Cedrica."

Eleni had pieced it together before Felton had said it and her entire body felt cold, like the temperature of the room dropped 100 degrees and she was about to get hypothermia. "Cedrica," Eleni said slowly. "With Clarence. And you walked in with your sisters? And you just left? Right. Right. Okay. Um..." she dealt with a lot of things in her life. This was a walk in the park. Who was she kidding-she thinks she'd thank the person who put a bullet in her if they came to do it again. "It's fine. They're safe. Kaia's at work. She has a couple of hours before she gets out so we have time. I have time. You've done enough. You don't have to tell her, I can take it from here. You don't need to worry. Oh god, it's f-cking Christmas too. Sorry, I didn't swear. I definitely didn't swear. Do you want some icecream? I have honeycomb. It's half eaten but it's very nice." Eleni was already retrieving it and two spoons. Sure, she could have just summoned them but she wanted to do something with her body.

Benji wasn't nearly as nervous as he maybe should be, in a weird sense he felt calm. All the years of coming to visit the ministry, see his dad, being brought in for take your kid to work day. It all added up to give Benji a sense of confidence as he navigated the halls of the ministry with ease. Having spent the morning with Bailey in his office just down the hall, he arrived at Minister Yaxley's office door a few minutes early. Benji knocked on it before straightening out his tie. Both Teagan and Chanelle wouldn't let him leave for his interview without being dressed properly, which resulted in a rather nice suit being chosen.

Eleni, quite frankly, wouldn't have minded if Benji had turned up in a t-shirt and shorts. As she swung the door open, her face had already broken into a grin. "Benji!" She said before she gestured for him to come in. "It's so good to see you! How are you? You look so well," she said as she closed the door. Eleni had been aware Benji was eyeing the ministry (following in the footsteps of his father) but she was still pleasantly surprised when she got his application.

With Eleni's face breaking into a grin, Benji's did the same as he saw the minister. "Hi Eleni! I've been good, stressing just a little about the interview." He responded gleefully as he looked down at his outfit after the compliment. "Thank you, I figured I should make a good... first impression on you. but it's good to see you as well!"

Eleni didn't register the Eleni until after a moment but she shrugged it off. "I had my first impression of you years ago, this is nothing to worry about," Eleni said as she lead them back into the room and she slid back down into the chair. "So you want to be my junior assistant?"

Benji couldn't help but smile, he knew the interview would go well regardless given his pre-existing family friendship with Eleni, but of course he had his doubts. Following Eleni back to her desk, he sat down in the visitor's chair across from her on the opposite side of the desk. "Yes ma'am, I think it'd be the perfect start for my future career here in the Ministry."

"And what are your plans for the ministry?" Eleni asked. She suspected it was something along the lines of I want to be like my father but she wasn't going to jump straight into conclusions. She was walking there at a casual pace. However, Eleni did like people with ambition. A drive.

Marcellette interview

Marcellette Michaud-1

Marcellette Michaud 💎 Beauxbatons Alumna
-French Ministry Transfer

 15:37, August 23, 2020 (UTC)

She is dressed impeccably for her interview. Sensible, closed toe, black heels, well fitting high-waisted trouser pants and a matching blazer in a handsome shade of dark grey with a rich navy blue top for contrast. She has no nervous or anxious energy on display as she waits to meet with Minister Yaxley. Some years ago she may have been pacing or otherwise tapping something incessantly as a way of controlling said energy. Right now she is cool, calm and collected. In typical muggle fashion she's an accordion file with her holding a paper version of her past achievements. Although she knows it's much less necessary to carry around in the magical world, the amount of forethought and preparedness it shows is something she would liked to see from a prospective employee.

For the first time in what seems like months, Eleni wasn't seem to be fitting in an interview during her breaks. So when she opened the door, she was properly dressed. Of course, there had been an application where Eleni was able to get an idea of the candidate before she asked for an interview. Though she seemed to be giving everyone interviews as of late. Still, she smiled when she saw the other woman and the folder in her hands and held out her hand. "Ms. Michaud, how nice to meet you, come in," she said.

She already had her eyes fixed on Minister Yaxley before she spoke. When her name left Eleni's lips she moved toward her returning the smile and greeting her with a handshake. "It is my pleasure to meet you, Minister." She instantly feels she should have handed over her folder, she keeps it tight in her grasp determined to make use of it. She passes though the office door to sit down. "Would it be improper to ask whether you have been enjoying the position as Minister?"

Eleni smiled before sitting back down at her chair. "Not at all, and it's everything I expected. Ego stroking maybe but it has come with a lot of things that keep me late in the office," Eleni said with a shrug. One of the good things about being with a coworker is that they never doubted the 'work's keeping me late' argument. Often because they were at work with you. "So you're applying for transportation, hm? Why that department?"

She gave a bit of a smile of her own at Eleni's response. "My personal belief is that magical transportation is an integral part of the wizarding world. Whether you travel by floo, broom, portkey, or apparition there is an aspect of danger within it. Things can go disastrously wrong, as they can in any situation, if there is not someone reliable and maybe even some level of a perfectionist at the helm to make the necessary corrections. I would like to be that person here."

"The last nine years of of my professional career have been spent working my way up this same department in the French Ministry. I have corrected errors in broom regulation, assisted in expanding the floor network, and found oversights in the portkey office. Overall I have the experience and the skill the be head of a subdivision or the department itself. Of course I understand if you feel that my background is not sufficient enough. I would not be opposed to spending a significant amount of time learning the standard of operating procedures under your leadership."

Eleni nodded as she listened. "I know most people would be worried about not being aware of England's procedures but I happened to be hired in the same shoes as you. I was the U.S. I like to think it's a good thing to welcome people who have new perspectives," Eleni said as she made a note. "Your background certainly makes you qualified. Why England, though? Why leave the French ministry?"

The corners of her mouth turned upwards at the similarity of having come from a different magical governing body. And of course Eleni's openminded view point on inclusion. "I came here seeking respect. I made the decision to leave the French Ministry with the belief that I could be given the respect I deserve here in England under a more enlightened Minister such as yourself. I do not wish you to think I am speaking negatively about my home country or the magical government that gave me my start. However, I would like you to know that in all my time spent in France I took noticed of the fact that the promotions I received were not standard. My achievements were not less than anyone else and yet my rewards were not the same as the those given to my male colleagues of equal of lesser experience."

Unfortunately this was something she'd heard before. Even in this own ministry but that was more so three years ago. However, it was still there but Eleni had been doing her best to curb this whenever she saw it. "That isn't something we imitate over the channel-clearly," she said with a small smile. "Is there any questions you have for me?"

Or if perhaps you suggest a more suitable position?"

"It was just another case of a muggle child who's magic manifested at the wrong place and the wrong time.

Eleni could empathise with that. It wasn't a pretty situation. However, better than the child becoming an obscurial. "Of course," Eleni said with a slow nod, "unfortunately, during his era, the statistics for obscurials had begun to rise since the ministry had pulled back from the muggle world. We've been trying to lower the rates since, but you will be entering a department that will require high damage control. Are you prepared for this?"
