As a seventh year she had envisioned herself spearheading soapbox campaigns for reformation and drafting wordy, idealistic legislation. Which the Minister, of course, would sign into effect with a flourish and she would be lauded for her work. AHA, I love this bit. I already know what type she is, there is no doubt about it. A wee bit annoying but eventually gets a little wiser.
I can imagine trying to cram dragon keepers into cubicles, and I'm imagining cramming dragons themselves in there, and I'm getting the idea that it's not too much different :'D
Administrative assistant. Secretary doesn’t quite cover the wonders that woman does. I was about to say! :D Plinth totally sounds like she runs the place, and you've got the office atmosphere down pat. And being in comp sci, I know what it's like to be in a male-dominated environment, though not as bad as dragon keeping. Heh, thinking of mother hen Mary in your other fic, it seems like Marcia's mother hen here.
Omg Mr. Brocklehurst can't be anything but dragon-sized. I knew it, the office IS full of 'em.
And now I'm imagining these hulking men in viking-worthy gear attempting to do paperwork with a handwriting fit for a first grader. Aha, love this line: Araminta learned to spot a keeper based on swagger first and kit after. Valuable skills, these. And Carl already knows the valuable skill of avoiding work 8D
CHARLIEEE, I've got such a weakness for that man because, I mean, dragon keeping. Hnnng. I would let him flirt his way through his review, I won't even try to deny it 8D
♥ totally fun start! :D Report Review
