*In her mothers’ spotless kitchen, Angie is cooking the only thing she knows how to make: Burt beans on toast. The kitchen radio is tuned to a muggle channel and playing cheesy pop music, the kind of which Angie has never been fond of. As she's scraping the charred remains of the beans over the toast, the kitchen door opens and her father enters the room looking very harassed. *

'Angie. Have you heard the news?'

'Hey Dad. What are you doing home? Shouldn't you be at work?'

*Her father hasn't been listening to her and he moves to the radio and switches the channel to the WWN. *

'...erday morning, Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge sensationally resigned from his post before confessing to being a Death Eater. So far neither the Wizengamot nor the Ministry of Magic has commented on this shock revelation, and the WWN will bring you the latest news as events unravel. In other news-

*He switches of the radio. *

'Fudge is a Death Eater?'

'Was a death eater. Honestly Angie pay attention. He's in custody right now. The whole ministry’s in an uproar. The Aurors are investigating and there’s going to be an enquiry and no one knows where to turn to get orders. It's a nightmare. Most people reckon that Dumbledores going to take over as minister but-'

'Dumbledore won't leave Hogwarts.'

'Precisely! My bets on Amelia Bones taking over but-'

'Hullo love. What are you doing home?'

*They are joined in the kitchen by Angie's mother. She's carrying a large basket of laundry, and she place it on the table giving her husband a quick kiss on the cheek.*

'I was just telling Angie. Fudge is a Death Eater. He's being held in custody by the Wizengammot. The ministry's in such a state that there didn't seem any point in trying to get work done.'

'Dad if the ministries such a mess then shouldn't you be there trying to sort it out?'

'Angie I work in the Department for Magical Games and Sports. There's not a lot I can do to help. They sent us all home for the day.'

'What do reckons going to happen next Dad?'

'Well they'll have to appoint a new minister, or a stand in for the time being at least. With no one giving the orders things are pretty much at a stand still. Then things will just have to go from there.'

'So I guess now wouldn't be a good time to start applying for jobs at the ministry then.'

'Not particularly. Best wait a while until things calm down and get back to normal. But I thought you where going to try out for the Harpies.'

'No. You wanted me to try out for the Harpies Dad. I never said I was going to.'

'And you're not going to apply for St Mungo's either?'

'No Mum I'm not.'

'Oh that is a shame. I thought you wanted to be a Doctor.'

'Healer Mum. And I haven't wanted to be a healer since I was 12.'

'So you're going to apply for a secretarial position at the ministry then. I have to say that’s a waste of your talents Angelina, but if that’s what you want...'

'It's not what I want Dad. It's what Gran wants. But I'm not going to do any of those things.'

'Well what are you going to do then?'

'Daddy if you'd let me finish then I'll tell you. I'm not going to do any of those things. They were your dreams for me. I didn't know what I wanted to do, and everyone wanted me to do something different and I just got confused. It's why I left. But now I've decided I think. I'm going to join the Accidental Magic Reversal Squad. Emphasis on transfiguration.'

'And that’s what you want is it?'

'Yes Dad it is.'

'Oh Angelina, why didn't you say something?'

'Because I didn't want to disappoint you Mum.'

'Angie you could never disappoint us by telling us the truth. And if that’s what you want then you know we'll support you. We just want you to be happy.'

'Thanks Dad. That means a lot to me.'
