Ministry of Magic Atrium

Atrium

As you emerge through the emerald flames of the Floo Network, the simple, surging mass of mankind is astounding. The stone floor clicks under your heels. A stumpy witch wearing a pink hat bumps into you, while a tall, balding wizard hustles past carrying a smoking kennel. You step around the Fountain of Magical Brethren, admiring the craftsmanship. Past security you move toward your destination.

He stood in the atrium, as he often did, just watching people scurry about, doing their daily tasks. Each one had something important to do and their own stories. It relaxed him watching all of these people, making stories for where they might be going and what they might be doing.

Seeing Julius, Dunstan is initially confused. But as he continues to stand there, observing him, he realizes: he's people watching. Quirking an eyebrow, he approaches him. "Minister Tyrrell," he says, his voices coated with amusement. "Busy?"

Either getting the departments together or getting in contact with other schools. Whatever you need. I'm a big fan of a good tournament."

Karsci had just gotten out of a meeting and was heading home, but decided to take a stroll through the Atrium first since he had never really been through there. He also was thinking about Kamille, so he wasn't that present or paying attention to where he was going.

He strode through the Atrium on his way to the elevators, dressed nicely in his work robes after he went home for his lunch break. He was reading on a report on werewolf attacks and wasn't really paying attention to what was going on around him

Karsci stepped out of the way so he wouldn't run into a man, only to run into Owen. The papers that Owen was reading flew everywhere, and Karsci snapped out of his thoughts. "Oh geez, I'm so sorry I wasn't paying attention-" he apologized quickly, and pulled out his wand. "Accio papers!" He said, and in a few seconds all the papers gathered back up into a pile to which Karsci handed back to Owen.

He had dressed up for his interview with the Auror Office, dressed in a full suit. The jacket and slacks were charcoal gray and his shirt and tie were jet black. He was also now sporting a crew cut. He could clean up nicely when he tried

Anzi.... No, Ella. Even she was still getting used to that. A little over a year away from Britain she goes right back into who she was before. But, it was different this time. Ella stood in the Atrium, staring up and attempting to gather her surroundings - Which was not easy when there were five people bumping into you at once. She glared at a man who managed to touch a place he shouldn't, and as he scurried away, her eyes landed on someone she recognized from the news. Of course, she wouldn't remember a name. "Hey. I know you." Unlike Anzi, with her thick russian accent, Ella sounded much more.... British.
