Gryffindor vs Beauxbatons; Y30 Game #7

Gryffindor,BeauxbatonsIn a repeat of last season, it was Gryffindor who would be taking to the field against the foreign team this afternoon. He knew that the home team hoped for a different result however. It was nearing the end of the year, and Reeve expected there would be a huge turnout because of it, students avoiding their studies or needing a break from it. By the time he finished setting up, was a loud murmur traveling across the pitch, the anticipation building.

Reeve had been to both locker rooms before he began set up, speaking to the players about the rules to ensure that both of the teams were on the same page. As the teams began to exit the locker rooms, he gestured for the captains to meet him by the game chest. They needed to hand in their line ups and receive some final instructions.

[ooc]Arrivals only please.

Captains: Please be sure your lineups are all set up in the QCP prior to posting it in here.[/ooc]

The last match of the year. Lizzie's heart swelled as she stepped onto the pitch for the last time as a fifth year, broom and bat clutched tightly in each hand. The amount of work Gryffindor had put in to get here filled her with so much pride, to be standing alongside such wonderful, hard-working people. They had earned every victory they had, and Lizzie knew in her heart that this wasn't going to be a repeat of last year. As the Beauxbatons team took to the pitch too, Lizzie couldn't help her eyes flicking to see Elvira with them. Their letters had gotten less and less frequent since their kiss on Elvira's visit, as both girls knew it could only ever be a one off. They were still friends though, and Lizzie gave the rival seeker a friendly smile, and twirled her bat in warning. There was no going easy today, Lizzie would be playing to win. Turning her attention to the rest of the team, Lizzie looked to James, wondering what he would have to say to encourage the team for his last game at Hogwarts.

Beauxbatons Third Year | Beater | Born into the Community | French

[justify]It had been the first time Fletcher had been out of France, but she was grateful it was for such a cause as Quidditch. The team had been preparing and working hard over the last year and it all came down to whether they could trash the house at Hogwarts. The third year knew very little about the differences between each house, and learning that it was Gryffindor made no difference to her determination to win. She was just glad that she'd be hitting people asides from her own teammates in this game.

As the beater dressed for the game, she was more nervous that she'd expected herself to be. She'd barely done any exploring of the castle during her time, preferring instead to at least keep one eye on someone she knew. Fletcher was no stranger to independent exploration, although that was in the woods of the town she'd been brought up in as opposed to a castle on the other side of the world. Keeping close to her Captains, Fletcher waited for everyone to head out into the skies.

Beauxbatons Co-Captain l Chaser Sixth Year l Competitive

It was impossible to feel completely ready for the international school match, but Brendan was still confident in his team and their victory. They had trained so hard, through rain and shine, and now was the time to really put all that practice to the test. The redhead had total faith in his teammates, given how well most of them had done over the course of the year. If they didn't win by catching the snitch alone, there was still no doubt the beaters would be able to take out half the enemy team and secure a victory that way. Assuming the beaters weren't too used to targeting their own teammates, that was.

Fulke joined the others in the locker rooms, and couldn't help but wonder if the french team would have to travel to New Zealand each year, or if the foreign team would ever be visiting the Beauxbatons castle. Not that he could complain too much - it was a good excuse to spend time overseas, among other cultures, he just wasn't as much a fan of the travel distance. Giving his teammates a thumbs up, the chaser waited for Sica to hand over their lineup, already itching to get into the sky.

This was the third time Elvira was in New Zealand, and the second time she was here for a match. It made her feel a little nervous to see Lizzie again after the kiss they had shared, but she knew there were no hard feelings. They were still friends, though there was also no doubt in her mind that Lizzie would be trying her best to knock her out of the game. She gave the girl a quick smile but then focused on her own team as she waited for the match to begin. She didn't want to be nervous, but couldn't help it. A lot depended on her right now, and if the game ended quickly with the other team catching the snitch they would have traveled all this way for no reason. She gave Fletcher and Brendan both reassuring smiles, though she wasn't sure if they seemed really reassuring or more nervous. All she wanted right now was to get into the air and play. Waiting was the worst.

Second Year • Alt Seeker

Theodore was in New Zealand. A tiny little island on the other side of the world that he'd hardly noticed on a globe most of the time, but had suddenly become a place he'd been dying to get to go to. While he likely wouldn't be able to play in the match, he was just excited to be here, and to watch the team go up against a completely different school, and see exactly how they played. It was odd, and so different to hear all of the accents, of which there were a lot. It wasn't just kiwi as he'd expected, HNZ seemed to have a totally diverse range of students, so he was hearing accents both familiar and completely alien, all in the one place.

Taking a seat on the bench, Theo prepared himself to be the best moral support the Beauxbatons team had ever seen. Not that he thought they needed it. Elvira would catch the snitch in no time, he was sure. Gryffindor didn't know what was coming to them.

Gabriel was ready for today. He figured he would play as a beater today again. He didn't done a terrible job the last time and now he wanted to beat Beauxbatons too. Gabriel entered the pitch and smiled. There were a lot of people coming to watch them. And he was sure Sofia would come too. Mostly she stayed away because she hated it, but now she just wanted to get a close look at her brother he figured. She had been really mad at him after the previous game. No matter what Sofia or anyone said he wasn't gonna not love quidditch. He followed in his mothers footsteps, and Sofia saw it differently. She was just being concerned, and Gabriel knew why. He knew how much trouble she had after their mother died, a lot of personal issues.

When the blonde looked around he saw Lizzie and noticed James afterwards. He was curious what their captain ahd to say. This would be his last game he figured as a captain. Gabriel was really curious who would follow him as a captain when James would be gone from this school.

beauxbatons seventh year | daring | unfocused | flirty | pink » red | quidditch co-captain & beater

[justify]This was Sica's third and final time coming to New Zealand for a match against Hogwarts New Zealand. It felt bittersweet to be here knowing this would be the last time she'd be playing with her team, but mostly she felt the pressure to do well again. Last year they'd won their match against Gryffindor so she was hoping for a repeat of the same this year, especially since everyone on their team seemed to be naturals, Gryffindor didn't know what was coming to them. Sica looked over to the stands and wondered briefly if Asaiah was here, she hadn't spoken to him since the last time she visited New Zealand, but she was just excited to get playing. She supposed as a captain she should give them all a pep talk so she gathered around them and simply said, "We got this guys! Just play like you usually do at practice and we'll do great. Give it your all!" She hoped their trip would not be for nothing. She looked over the line up she and Brendan had discussed one last time and then handed it over to the referee with a smile, eager to get started.

Cheryl was looking forward to this day. The game on Hogwarts and she wanted to win ofcourse. But she didn't knew if she could play yet, the blonde hoped so. Her cousin Evangeline went to this school and she was wondering if she would be sitting in the crowd. She knew Evangeline didn't really liked sports but watching could still be fine. When Cheryl made her way to the pitch she looked around. They had to play against Gryffindor Cheryl heard. The blonde smiled as she saw Jessica standing and gathered around the team. Jessica was right they could win, most of their practices went fine. When she saw that she could play the blonde cheered. She made herself ready for the game and wanted to catch the quaffle as fast as she could. Cheryl smiled at Jamie and Brandan and hoped they would make the great team they could be.

[justify]It was the last game of the season and Gryffindor had already secured the Cup for their school, now they just needed to win this last match against Beauxbatons and they'd be Quidditch champions overall. Last year they had lost against the international team, but this year Gryffindor was unstoppable. Marisol looked over at the other team, sizing them up and noticed the girl Asaiah used to date, but she tried not to dwell on it. She just wondered how today would go and was excited and ready to play.

Now that they were champions it meant that Gryffindor had one final game against the Beauxbatons team. There would be time later for James to dwell on the fact he would be leaving the school but for now he had a game to win. He arrived at the Quidditch pitch and handed in the line up card to the referee and returned to the bench. "We've had an amazing season and I want to say how proud I am of all of you, I wanted to say it has been an honour to captain you for as long as I have and I am so proud of the wonder players and people you have become in that time and I'm confident you will all continue to be amazing once I've gone, but for now lets show Beauxbatons who the better school is,"

The captains seemed pretty eager for the game to begin because it didn't take long before they were standing in front of him, holding out their lineups for his review. Looking them over, Reeve nodded and placed the parchments in his pocket before clearing his throat. "Don't forget the rules we discussed earlier in the locker room. Gryffindor, you'll be guarding the South hoops. Beauxbatons, you'll be guarding the North. If there are no questions, please head back to your teams and get ready to fly. Best of luck to both of you." Releasing the snitch first and then the bludgers, Reeve quickly headed to his broom with the quaffle tucked under his arm. Thankfully without incident. Kicking off into the air, Reeve flew up until he was in position and then moved the quaffle to his hands. "Game on!" the man yelled as he tossed the quaffle into play.

[ooc=Game Notes - Please read]

3. Don’t forget to refresh the page before you post! Someone might sneak in a post while you are working on yours.

4. Don't forget - you should always be pressing a button, whichever is appropriate for your game play during your post. Doing so boosts your success rate as well as allows the timer to kick in appropriately for your teammates and opponents.

Elvira was pumped for the game to get started, bouncing on her feet as she waited for Jessica to talk to them. Soon the older girl did, and Elvira beamed at her. There was definitely pressure on her shoulders, but she also felt like this was their time. Before taking to the air, she ran over to Jessica. "If I get the snitch, you should consider kissing me." She said quietly to her, though she didn't really care if anyone else in the team heard. Then she winked and got onto her broom, taking to the air fast enough not to linger on the girl's reaction. Today was a day of being bold, that would help her win.

She zoomed away quickly, her eyes peeled for a glint of gold. She didn't bother to see what the other seeker was doing, all she cared about was getting the snitch. Her team, her entire school really, was counting on her.

[justify]Marisol bounced in place to shake off the jitters and mounted her broom as they all got ready. As soon as the whistle was blown, she kicked off into the air and rushed up to catch the Quaffle in her hands, tucking it safely under her arm and she headed off towards the goal hoops. Her adrenaline was pumping and she was going to ride the energy and give it her all.
