He nodded, jotting down notes. "This job is more than just explaining and helping kids understand their magic. You're the front line that we send on disasters. Catastrophes. Not only do excuses need to be made, but things need to be fixed quickly and perfectly. Not one stone can be out of place. The job is stressful and time consuming. It's you on the line if one of these accidents isn't solved properly. Are you up for dealing with the demands of this job? Especially as a mother..an expecting mother?"

"It's not just your skills that yo need confidence. Do you have confidence in yourself to spend so much time away from your family? Especially when you're going to have a newborn. Do you have confidence that your family can manage independence..The job is very demanding and will pull you away from your family with no notice."

Alfie found the mamdatory re-interview a bit much, but he was fairly confident, so he stepped up and knocked on the door firmly, plastering a smile on his face.

"I would like to think my experience in travelling among other cultures and understanding how they work would give me a one-up to anybody who insists they have more experience than I do... and even then, why lose the projects I have in mind for ICW reps and exchanges? Mr. Tyrrell, I assure you, the ideas I have will strengthen the relationships we have with not only the other schools and magical ministries, but, in due time, it may help out with our relationships with muggles over seas as well.... but excuse me, I am rambling. What else do you wish to ask?"

"Well, I'd like to believe building relationships is one thing that is important. I would suppose the other thing is, the IMOL. I'm working on getting that more organized and focused on creating new laws, focusing on those related to a recent blight - Creatures, like werewolves, vampires, centaurs... etc. I, myself, along with other people we choose, will try to work closely with the DRaCMaC and DMLE on this. Not only that, but I'd like to focus on a new age of acceptance between No-Maj and those who are magical, so I'd like to eventually bring in a... Squib representative. Somebody who has connection to the Muggle word and the Wizarding world. I'd like to be working with the Department of Technological Advances as well, to help usher in a new age of technology. Though some things involve inter-departmental work, I believe working in unison will strengthen not just the departments, but the Ministry as a whole. It's really important DMIC works alongside the other departments, especially since we create the laws they're forced to work within and uphold"

"While I think that all sounds good..It doesn't really fit under the department..The department focuses on international issues...You don't create the laws that we would all work within, bt more set standards on a larger, intergovernmental stage..I have the same issue as I did when we talked before the election...You seem focused on domestic things, rather than international. Domestic things that are taken up by other departments."

"We can get a Squib representative alongside ICW reps for every country. I'd like to think working on issues with No-Maj would be helpful alongside my original issue; Bring together the Ministries in times of crises, like the war against magical creatures. One of the main duties of IMOL - as defined by the Minister who founded the department - is to prevent contradictions between the British Ministry and its counterparts, domestic issues included. We can't focus solely on international issues, as we can't work effectively on that without having a clear mind about the laws we have to follow at a national level. It all falls under my department's jurisdiction and while I agree on the need to expand the department's duty, I also have a necessity to split my focus with issues at a national level. These are the issues my reps have to take to the ICW - therefore, it's in our best interest if we don't spend all our time somewhere that's not on domestic issues. My department works closely with the other departments. It is not solely one job, Minister - it's many duties that fall on my department's hands, because one thing relies on the other and thus our job triples. Everything regarding laws and legislation is the DMIC's jurisdiction, as it is other department's. My department is easily the most important, Minister. And for our job to be effective, we need to work on domestic issues, too. Not just international ones. If we cannot maintain a firm front, wherein we have a stable country, we will not be regarded with respect within the ICW, as well as in the eyes of countries individually. I'd like to get ICW meeting held here again, since there's been no meetings held here recently. If you'd like me to focus on the more international things, there's the review of the import/export trading I've been doing. What is allowed in the country, and what is sent out. I want to expand the trading networks. Not related to trading, I'd also like to see how the other countries plan on dealing with the tension surrounding creatures. I also want to review the International Statute of Secrecy with all the countries and decide on how effective it's being - And to explore the possibility of deciding where the relationship between the maj and no-maj stand."

He shook his head. "I was Head of both IMOL and DIMC for a total of 12 years..I know what the jobs entail. IMOL advises myself and the Wizengamot to prevent contradictions in international law, not domestic. Laws and legislation fall under the jurisdiction of myself and the Wizengamot, not yours. You have a say in the regulations of things such as trading standards and international laws. You're starting to get the idea with the ICW and trading standards, but it's a little troubling to me of what you think the department does, especially after working here for awhile. You seem to have a passion for domestic issues, so maybe this department isn't the place for you and we can find a better fit for you."

He chuckles lightly. "With all due respect, Minister, working with other countries is what I am good at - After years of travelling overseas, I am sure what I need to do will help both in country and internationally - That is my goal. You're entirely wrong about my passion being domestic. My passion derives from the cultures of other countries. But like I had stated before - How are we, internationally, supposed to get a stable, clear, idea of international laws when, domestically, we cannot agree upon ourselves. My idea is not to take over the plans for other departments... Simply help them out, thus helping myself out. I don't think I'd be good at any other job than the one I am currently in."

"I don't know what you mean about agreeing upon ourselves domestically..The laws are agreed upon and set, leaving your department able to focus on international ones..Unfortunately, I don't think that your ideas and how you want to run the department match with the major duties of the department, as well as what I want to see from it."

"They may not match with how you're used to running it, sure. But I assure you, they directly correlate. Sir, I'm sure you understand... Many of the youth today would like to see many of the laws revised. That's what I mean by not being able to agree upon ourselves. If there's doubt in how modern our laws are, there are obviously people who would like to cause discord within the Ministry, causing many problems, domestically and internationally. That's part of my goal. It's the same way internationally - My goal isn't just to help ours. Ours is just... a starting point. My goal is to help all the countries modernize a bit... Be more accepting, of creatures, of muggles, of Squibs... Et cetera. But please, tell me what you'd like to see out of my department.... My job, as it currently stands, stems on following what the Minister wishes, after all."

"Many of the laws do need to be rewritten, and many of them will be, but that doesn't fall to your department in any way. I want that Head of the DIMC to use the laws and regulations passed by myself and within the other departments to shape our foreign policy and relations. It's isn't the head's job to focus on changing domestic policy. International is a completely different beast, and one that needs full attention. I want the DIMC to work with the ICW and set international standards that we will follow. The DIMC head will take input from what regulations we want to see as a body and use it to shape how we act on an international stage. But, as I said before, I don't think you're a good match for my administration. You're what..early 20's now? I think you may need to spend more time gaining some experience before running such a large department."

"Let me ask - The past few months, have I been underperforming? I've looked at Several different international policies, including the due process for an international criminal, the policies on foreign exchange students, and the policies on international youth tournaments, like quidditch and the Triwizard tournament. I Have been focusing on primarily international things.... But there's the thing. I over-work. I'm a workaholic. My mind races when I don't have work to focus on. That is why I'd like to work more closely with other department heads. I can still focus on the ICW, and focus on setting international standards... And frankly, if you'd like to modernize not only us, but also get other countries working towards a brighter future, you need someone who is more connected with the younger generation."

"Honestly, I would say yes..When I came to speak with you as Senior Undersecretary, I wasn't overly impressed with what I found. Then, you were still focused on domestic issues. You may have looked at the policies, but nothing has really been done. The department has been at a standstill, and, for now, I don't see much growth with you. Maybe in the future, you'll fit better for the position, but I can't say that you do now." He closed the file open on his desk. "I wish you the best of luck, Mr.Torres."

"The entire ministry is at a standstill.... Maybe that will change with you. Unfortunately, that is not something I will be a part of. If there were any other job in the ministry for me, it is not something I would be passionate about. Maybe I'll find my passion elsewhere." Alfonso stands up and bows his head slightly. "I wish you the best, of course, Julius Tyrrell. Tell Renee I say hi, please. She was a great Auror head. I'm sure she'll be a great chief Warlock."
