He walked up to the Department Head's office, giving a quick knock, waiting for a response.

She'd be sat at her desk, writing up notes on the new television system they've been planning when the door goes. At first she thinks it's Clarence, but then she remembers that Clarence is the least punctual person to ever exist, so it can't be him. Plus she can't smell coffee. "Come in!"

He entered the room, greeting Cedrica with a smile. "Miss Ackerman, I don't think we've had the pleasure of meeting yet. I'm Julius Tyrrell. Do you have a minute?"

She's a little confused until he introduces himself, and even then it's a little unnerving to have the undersecretary to the Minister in your office. "Mr Tyrell! I've heard all about you. Good things, don't worry," she smiles, before whipping out her wand and summoning a chair to drag itself to his feet. "Of course, take a seat."

"Oh, well I'm glad that's the case.", he said with a smile as he took a seat. "So, Miss Ackerman, I'm just going around checking in with all of the department heads. So, first things first, how are you liking the job? Is it everything you hoped it would be? Is there anything you would change?"

Phew. Okay, just a check-up. Cedrica sets her papers aside and leans her forearms on the desk, eyes bright with thought. "Loving it so far," she smiles. "This was always my dream job as a kid, so the fact I'm here is crazy to me. We could do with some more employees -" she laughs. "But that can't be fixed overnight."

"I'm glad you're loving it. In order to have a successful department, we need a happy head, and I'm glad we have that with you." He smiled. "Where would more employees be most beneficial to you?"

"It takes the workload off my shoulders a little," she smiles, tossing a few pencils into the organizer. "We're progressing well with the current employees, but advancement is the name of this department and a wide array of opinions and inputs is the only way we can do that."

He nodded. "I couldn't agree more. Perhaps, we could organize a sort of think tank. Bring in people from other departments, and maybe outside the ministry, to help throw ideas and opinions around..Of course, we'd search for people more apt to this kind of work. That way, we don't have to search for full time employees, but rather a group to mee every once in awhile."

She nods, liking the sound of that, and an idea pops into her head as her mind wanders to Lei. "What about internships?" she asks. "It was a student who coded Witchat entirely, all Clarence and I did was code it into the website. Some of the students in Hogwarts are extremely gifted at this."

He nodded. "We can definitely get in contact with Hogwarts and see if we can coordinate summer internships here. I think it could be very beneficial."

There are days - like today, really - where work is just awful and she really wants to go back home and curl up with the cat and sleep. But it's only ten a.m., and lunch isn't for another three hours and ugh, she hates it. Leaning back in her chair, Cedrica flicks through a file, drumming a pen on the desk in an attempt to entertain herself.

Despite the shitstorm at home, and all the nonsense, he's back into work, where he can truly enjoy the company of his favourtie person: himself. He comes in with two takeaway cups of tea, and see's Cedrica. "Mornin' Boss. How's it going?" He says, handing her one. "To get you through the morning."

An angel approaches in the form of Cyril Baudelaire and a paper cup of caffeine; she takes it with a grateful smile. "You're a star, Cyril, thanks a lot," she says, bringing the lid to her lips. "I'm about five minutes away from falling asleep over this desk."

He shrugs. "No worries boss." He says, sitting at his desk and tapping keys on his typewriter. "I was gonna get you a coffee but the shit that goes into you from just one cup....We deserve better." He says lightheartedly. Small talk has been his best skill, so he uses it to fill the silence.

A smirk of amusement crosses her face as she drinks, sets the cup aside on her desk and returns her nose to the file. The tapping of the typewriter is comforting, weirdly. "Tell that to my flatmate," she comments, turning a page. "I keep telling him a cocaine habit would probably be healthier."

He chuckles. "My mother used to say, when I was around your age, that I'd either become a meth head, a prostitute or a caffeine addict. And she'd say as long as it wasn't the third, she'd be happy." He smiles as he recalls the memory, leaning back on his chair, sighing.

That makes her laugh, out loud and musical. "Ah, well. Being a methhead would probably help me get through this job more than any caffeine ever will." A pencil pot topples on her desk and she lets out an annoyed hiss, rolling her eyes.

He heads over to give her a hand with the pens. "So what is the department working on now that Witchagram has become such a hit? Sequels have always been doomed."

Good question. She swivels around in her chair to face Cyril, twirling the pen between her fingers. "The WWN, I suppose, though your family has the most involvement in that. I'll help Clarence - the guy who made Witchagram - with whatever his next project is, too. You know how sharks have to keep swimming or they die? That's what Clarence is like with working. We'll be onto something soon."

He nods, understanding. "I'm heading down to the station later. It's been pretty quiet lately. We're in the midst of reshuffling our broadcast schedule, so it's a nightmare. I did have an idea though. Would be cool to run it past you. A Wizarding Broadcasting company. For motion picture, rather than just wireless."

If she were a cat, her ears would prick up at the sound of that. Intrigue crossing her face, she grins. "I'm listening."

He pauses for a while, and then grabs some parchment and a pencil from her pen pot. He draws a crude imitation of the broadcasting tower for WWN. "So I was analysing how the radio transmissions from the Wireless Network are amplified and broadcasted using a modification of the sonorus charm, and that's what we send in the tower, giving us the sound waves." He explains, drawing curved lines to demonstrate the sound waves coming from the tower. "So, that got me to thinking, what if we used the broadcasting tower to send images? And the way we'd be able to do that is if we filmed, say, the news or the quidditch matches, and so on and so forth, using conventional means, and broadcasted the memories of the film, would we not be able to then send a full technicolour satellite image alongside sound to a television set?"

She listen, with great interest; shit, she's been sleeping on Cyril, too hard. "That sounds good, in theory," she nods, grabbing a writing pad and a ballpoint pen and jotting things down. "It's getting the Muggle television sets and the magic to cooperate - we've managed that with Witchagram and wifi, but obviously we'll have to tweak it to work with this." After a beat of thought, she says, "You need to talk to Clarence."

He just realised - Clarence. She's talking about Clarence Bishop! "Oh, yeah. Sure. Of course." He says, "We met briefly at his father's hotel. I've got his contact details. Glad you're on board though, Boss."

Damn, seems like Clarence has been fraternising with the Baudelaires more than she'd first thought. "Always on board with good ideas, Cyril," she comments with a grin, before adding, "What were you two doing in a hotel?"

He gives her a smooth wink. "Real Estate." He says, as though it's obvious. "Also. It was coincidence." He says. "You needn't worry." I'm not stealing him from you.

"Nah, I'd be happy for the lad," she smirks, turning back to her desk, curls falling over her ears. "It's about time he got a hobby that isn't his work." Just not with a Baudelaire, thanks.
