Let me know what you think. You should check out The Office playlist on Spotify. It literally has every song ever sung or mentioned on the show. Absoluetly Bloody Brilliant!
-Interview with Y/N-
Y/N: So… umm yeah it’s my third week working here. It’s been quite an adjustment. (beat) Oh no Newt’s been great. He isn’t as big of a handful as the Minister makes him out to be.
There is a cut away scene to Y/N opening Newt’s office door to see the room covered in mooncalves. Newt stands in the middle of the room. A mooncalf sits in his arms. The camera pans back to Y/N who gives Newt a stern look. Newt shrugs.
Newt: Ugh this isn’t what it looks like.
The cut away ends and goes back to Y/N being interviewed.
Y/N: The others? Umm yeah I see them now and then, Bridget is very chatty so I interact with her a lot. I’m not sure I’ve actually seen Claire move yet. Y/N shifts uncomfortably in the chair and leans in as if to tell the camera a secret. I’m-I’m not actually sure if she’s still alive.
Another cut away shows Claire at her desk, with the same sun glasses on. In her hair are spit balls. A figure walks by and puts more paperwork on her desk. Random clutter and paperwork cover her desk. Suddenly a spit ball flys across the room. The camera shoots up and follows the shot that came from Rodger. He quickly tries to hide the evidence that he was the one who had shot the spit ball at Claire.
Rodger: What? I’m so bored!
The cut away scene ends and goes back to Y/N sitting in the chair. She looks down at her watch and adjusts her watch.
Y/N: The minister is doing rounds to the different corridors and giving us our annual ministry updates and news. Apparently he does this every once in a while to get feed back from everyone and tell people about what’s new in the ministry…
Y/N is cut off by the sound of the interview room door opening. The camera turns to see Newt in the doorway. He looks over at her and quickly notices the camera.
Newt: (startled) Oh so sorry. Forgot the camera would be in here. (To Y/N) Don’t know if you saw the time but he’s about to start.
Y/N: I did actually. Is Rodger ready? Last time it was easier with three of us.
She gets up from her chair and follows Newt our of the room. The camera follows beind the both of them.
Newt: Yeah I believe he’s right behind him.
Suddenly M.C Hammers song “Can’t Touch This” can be heard along with loud banging and things shattering or breaking. The camera focuses on the furthest corner. Suddenly a Hammer flies from it into a wall. Biggleswade comes from around the corner carrying a boom box. His other hand is conjuring hammers as they fly around the room. Bridget runs around screaming at Biggleswade to get a grip. Claire is still asleep in her chair. Rodger follows closely behind and tries to save the hammers from destroying more of the corridor. Sometimes he is successful, other times he misses as the hammers go through the drywall. Newt and Y/N instantly start helping.
Biggleswade: (with the music) Stop! Hammer Time!
There is a cut away to Newt, Rodger and Y/N in the interview room. All of them look exhausted and all of them are covered with drywall dust. Y/N flicks dust from her trousers and does the same to Newt jacket sleeve. She turns to Rodger and dusts the top of his hair. Rodger then sneezes and Newt tries to tousle his cost a little to get the dust off. Rodger looks at the camera after his sneeze.
Rodger:Biggleswade discovered a new Muggle recording the other day. He decided he loved it so much he ended up taking it too literally and made 9:30am his “hammer time.” Which apparently, according to Muggles, means you throw around Muggle working tools.
Y/N: We still aren’t sure Muggles would have a Hammer Time, but we understand why this M.C person is warning people about the time.
Newt: We’re hoping he moves out of the Muggle 90’s soon before one of us dies.
END OF INTERVIEW
The next scene shows the corridor gathering into the conference room, the same room as where the interviews are held. Biggleswade and Rodger help wheel Claire into the room. Bridget follows behind with Y/N and Newt in toe. Biggleswade and Rodger help fix Claire to be presentable.
Bridget: Don’t you think we should take her to the St. Mungos? I mean it’s been like three weeks. She probably stinks.
Biggleswade carefully gets close to Claire’s head and sniffs her hair.
Biggleswade: I’d say she’s got another week.
Bridget makes a disgusted face. Newt and Y/N look at each with a worrying face. Rodger sits next to Y/N.
Rodger: (To Y/N) Don’t worry she’s been out longer than this once before. She’ll be fine.
The camera zooms in on Newt’s face who looks at the camera with a blank and expression. He slowly begins to shake his head in disbelief.
Suddenly the camera goes to the conference room door where Milton opens the door and enters on his own. He stands next to Newt with his wand and a piece of paper. He uses the Lumos charm and shines it over the front of the room. The camera goes back to Newt’s expression and he slowly puts his head in his hands.
Milton: Witches and Wizards! He runs the ministry, he is the greatest, most charming and sexiest Wizard in the office! He’s your best friend and mine, give it up for MINISTER PARKINSON!!!!!
The Conference room door opens and in jogs Minister Parkinson. He throws his arms into the air and bobs up and down. Milton joins him and both of them jump around with their arms in the air.
-INTERVIEW WITH Y/N
Y/N: This is supposed to be an all day meeting…(The scene cuts to Y/N and Newt looking at each other and smirking as they try to hide their laughter.) …I don’t know how I’m going to get through this.
-END OF INTERVIEW WITH Y/N-
INTERVIEW WITH BRIDGET
Bridget: Oh My God they have been glued at the hip since she got here! They are always whispering (Cut Scene to Bridget sitting in the break room table. Newt and Y/N are sitting next to each other but are turned to face each other. They are laughing and listening to each other intently. The camera goes back to Bridget who looks bored and annoyed.) The two of them are SO going to hook up. It’s like…
END OF INTERVIEW WITH BRIDGET
The camera cuts back to the board meeting. Minister Parkinson stands at the head of the table and addresses the room.
Minister:Thank you, thank you everybody! No need to stand and applause… (he pauses and when no one does anything he gives them all a stern look. Y/N and Newt look around the room as everyone looks around with confused looks. Newt and Y/N slowly stand and start clapping. Everyone follows except for Claire.) Oh stop, oh stop guys. Go one sit down. (Still confused, everyone sits again) Alright… so to start off Wizard Resources wants me to…
-INTERVIEW WITH MINISTER PARKINSON-
Minister: (His interview takes place in his office.) The board always asks me why I go around to the different offices and do these meeting myself. I mean I could get anyone to do them. I look at them and I tell them because I have a heart and knee caps just like them. I’m nothing special. I just ran for Minister and got appointed. I put my robes on one arm at a time just like anyone. But they don’t get that. When I walk into the room they immediately act like I’m this royal king or something. Doing these meetings, I feel, makes me seem like a normal average working wizard. I look forward to when I can just be average Parkinson instead of Magical Minister of Magic Parkinson.
Director: Does anyone actually call you that?
Minister: Umm no… it’s just something I’ve been trying to make a thing. It sounds more formal I think.
-END OF INTERVIEW WITH MINISTER PARKINSON
The scene cuts back to the board meeting. The minister is continuing to speak.
Minister: Just to reconfirm what I said. If you have any office romances, like you know officially dating. If you know you guys are just hooking up casually, I don’t think WR is gonna want to hear about it. But you know if you guys are talking about moving in together or meeting the family then best to get that locked down with WR.
The camera focuses in on Bridget’s face who sticks a hand in front of her mouth, hiding it from Y/N and Newt. She Mouths ‘A MATTER OF TIME’ and points with her other hand behind her hand at them.
Minister: It’s not that we forbid office romances, (He tries to subtly wink at Bridget. The camera zooms in on Bridget, who freezes and looks back and forth between the minister and the camera.)
INTERVIEW WITH RODGER
Rodger: Everyone knows Bridget has a huge crush on the Minister. Even the Minister knows.
END OF INTERVIEW WITH RODGER
INTERVIEW WITH BRIDGET
This interview takes place in Bridget’s office. There are several ‘Bridget loves Parkinson’ and Minister Parkinson memorabilia around the room.
Bridget: Me? Have a crush on the Minister? No. Absolutely not. I have no idea what you’re talking about.
END OF BRIDGET INTERVIEW
Cuts back to the meeting. The minister looks at his papers.
Minister: I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Y/N for keeping Newt in line and as accident free as possible.
Newt looks annoyed at the Minister.Putting his arms out to the side as if to say what the hell.
Newt: I am right here. I can hear you.
Y/N takes Newt’s hand and moves it down to his lap. Newt looks at Y/N shocked at the physical contact but tries not show emotion. He hides his smirk by bowing his head. The camera blurs its focus on Rodger who stares at the interaction and seems defeated. Y/N lets go of Newt’s hand.
Y/N: Thank you Minister, it’s fine. He hasn’t been any trouble at all.
INTERVIEW WITH Y/N
Y/N: (She looks off as if in a dream.) It’s actually been quite fun.
END OF INTERVIEW WITH Y/N
The camera cuts back to the Minister.
Minister: Well. I guess that’s it if no one else has anything.
Milton quickly raises his hand in urgency. The Minister rolls his eyes.
Minister: Does anyone else have anything? No? (The minister collects his stuff as Milton hovers over him. Everyone starts to get up and talks among themselves. Before the minister leaves the room he turns back to everyone.) And will someone PLEASE pour some water over that woman and wake her up?
The scene cuts over to Claire sitting in the chair still asleep. A voice belonging to Milton uses the Aguamenti charm and water dumps all over her head. She screams and wakes up. She rips off the sunglasses.
Claire: Oh hey thar. How have you all been?
Camera cuts back to everyone packing up to go home for the evening. Rodger stops by Newt’s door to see Y/N walking out.
Rodger: Fun meeting huh?
Y/N: Crazy fun. Waay too much fun for me to handle.
Rodger: Acts bashful So I wanted to see what you were doing tonight?
Y/N: Oh I’m just heading home. Nothing special.
Rodger: Well…maybe you’d like to… go… (Suddenly Newt comes through the door, interrupting them both. )
Newt: Y/N, I-I would you be able to… ugh… stay behind tonight? I have some extra things I will need help with.
Y/N: Oh yeah sure! She turns back to Rodger Sorry Rodger, maybe another night.
Newt and Y/N disappear back into Newt’s office. Rodger shakes his head and begins to walk towards the office door as he turns his head he looks into the camera. He shrugs his bag onto his shoulder more and continues to walk faster out of the office.
INTERVIEW WITH Y/N
Y/N: Office Romances? Oh it’s not for me. It’s not like I am at a point in my life where I’d be ready to have a serious enough relationship.
The camera catches Newt and Y/N talking close together in a semi lit office. He props his case on a chair and opens it. He takes Y/N’s hand and helps guide her down into the case.
Y/N: As for people in the office? If I would date anyone? I mean I don’t know. I don’t think so. I’m not really interested in anyone at the moment… but I guess that could change.
