    It scarcely seemed real. Even now, two days later and with the written proof in his jacket pocket that his sister was already planning celebrations, Konstantin could barely bring himself to believe that the righteous had been victorious and Ross was to take office. 

    He had been so sure, though he has never voiced it, that the old guard would prevail. They seemed to be everywhere one turned but there were progressives out there and they had done their part in securing a just future.

    Ross would never be Urquart of course. Family or not Kons would be loyal to his Minister forever, but this was more than he could have ever hoped for; his heart rejoiced that justice and sense had won and his head was already thinking of the opportunities this might present to him. It was with both head and heart full of joy that he stepped into the lift that morning, smile infectious and permanent.

    "Wonderful news isn't it?"

    "Wonderful news?" she questioned blankly, looking up from the stack of she had been reading as she walked past. If he had said something before that, providing her context - she hadn't heard it. She froze - it would be rude to ignore him and keep walking, but she didn't know if he was talking to her. Lilac eyes turned on the man, recognizing him as one of the head of departments. Thankful, after almost seven months, she had figured out the names and faces or at least all the heads, if not all the assistant heads. 

    What could he be talking about, nothing bi- oh, there was only one thing he could be talking about - the Minister of Magic election results. "About Mr. Ross? I suppose he is a good fit for the office. He'll at least have some idea where to start, having worked in the ministry beforehand." She didn't mind him - but he hadn't been the candidate she had been working with. Still, she supposed there were far worse that had run so really she couldn't complain about him.
    iziza is a half-goblin, meaning she is quite short. your character might not know why but they will notice her height and white hair that marks her as such.

    Personally Konstantin thought it should be compulsory for a Minister to have actually worked in the Ministry they would command but their system did allow for others so they were fortunate that once again sense had prevailed. Mrs Brownhill and Mrs Greyback seemed like exceptional women but what would they do when it came to actually making policy and working with the Chief Warlock. Dawlish would probably enjoy it and that was reason enough to nip the idea in the bud.

    "Well I rather think him the perfect fit," Konstantin replied genially. "But then I would say that I suppose."
