Reeve busied himself setting up the pitch for the game. The sun was shining brightly, and Reeve could tell it was going to be a hot day. Beads of sweat were already forming on his browline as he prepped the field.

The man finished setting up as the stands continued to fill, and then he hopped on his broom to do a few laps happy for the cool breeze that the speed offered. He touched the ground just as the captains stepped forward to hand over their line up cards.

It was the last game they would play this year since Gryffindor had lost against Slytherin in the first one. And it was not nice, but this still counted no matter what. The training had been going well so Noel was confident that the chaser squad would do good as always. At least Sully and Chloe. As he made it's way to the pitch he looked around seeing some red flags and the cheers of Gryffindor house. He was always liking the spirit of the house. He waited for the line-up to be announched by their captain and for his friends to arrive. He could not wait to get started.

Emma was thrilled about the match, even though she wished they were playing in the final game instead. She had put on her gear quickly and was still pulling her hair in a ponytail as she made her way into the pitch. She grinned at Lysander, hoping her friend was ready to lead them to victory.

Lucas was feeling nervous about this game, even though he probably wouldn't play. Gryffindor was one of the best teams of the school and it felt strange to face them in this match. He glanced at Elliot, wondering how he managed the pressure.

Chloë felt pretty ready for the match, even if it might not be the one they would've wished they were playing. It was a match nonetheless and she was keen on winning it. She happily took her stand with the rest of the team on the pitch, ready to get started.

Lysander was prepared for this match. He felt confident in his own skills today, though admittedly, he was a little worried about how Flynn would hold up. He knew he should have scheduled more time to practice, or even to get some one-on-one in with the young seeker, but the OWL year was proving to be one of the hardest to keep on top of yet. He joined his teammates, waving his hand to gather them around. "Okay guys, we have this one today. We can't lose this. Literally who has ever seen a badger beat a lion? No one. Lovebirds, and Noel, if you guys could manage like, a hundred goals today, that would be great, but no stress." He laughed. "Nikko, keep those quaffles out, and Flynn - you've got this. Just relax, and focus on that snitch. Emma, could you cover him?" He asked. He had his own gameplan. A terrible one, but a gameplan nonetheless. He wiped a hand across his brow, already feeling the heat of the sun bearing down in the open field. It was going to be a hot day, but the sooner they were up and flying around, the faster they'd cool off. He broke away to trudge over to Reeve, and hand in his line-up sheet.​

There was no way for Elliot to ignore that this was his last game. He was nervous, sure, he always was before games, but there was an almost strange sense of calm accompanying it today. No matter what happened, this was his last real chance to play with his team and there wasn't anything he could do about that.

He'd spent some time adjusting the line up with Amy and they'd made a few changes that he hoped worked out well, giving the roster one last once over as the team gathered around. "Well guys, no matter what happens today, let's make it a good one. Chasers especially, be on your toes and watch out for each other and Linden," he said, nodding to the team. "I believe in you guys, so let's do this thing," he said, holding his hand out in the middle of the huddle for one last time before heading over to Reeve to hand in their roster and get things started.

Games still made René nervous, but today even more so knowing Sully was on the other side. He'd played plenty of games against his brother in his life, but he'd not exactly won any of them very often. René had been hoping to take solace in the fact that at least he wouldn't be actually playing today, but as he gathered for to listen to their captains, he paled at the sight of his name on the line-up, glancing over his shoulder at Sully and then back. It was exciting to get to play, and terrifying. If he messed up, Sully would never let him live it down, but if they won...

Sully was amped for today's game. It'd be fun to play against René's team and get to show off, not to mention he was pretty confident they could sweep the floor with Hufflepuff with their eyes closed. He laughed at Lysander's speech, giving him a mock salute and an "Aye, aye, captain," in response, unable to resist the urge to tug Chloë a little closer before it was time to kick off.

Jordie couldn't believe that he was actually playing in a real game! For the first time! He was unbelievably nervous, and he wished that Onyx was there. He tried to shove down how scared he felt, and how surprisingly lonely he felt. Would anyone in the stands notice he was playing? Would anyone care? He followed the others onto the field, his head held high and his shoulders straight. Anyone that really knew him enough to pay attention might notice how terrified he was, but he wasn't going to let that stop him. He nodded, looking to Rene and giving the boy his best smile. "We got this, right?" He tried to sound energetic, waiting for the match to start. @Rene Tofilau

Linden made his way to the pitch. He really hopes that they got a win today. For Elliots sake. It has become a school joke that hufflepuff never won and this was his last match it would be so good if they could change that. He was nervous gryffindor was a tough team but he hoped that some changes in the lions line up would give than a bit of an advantage. He listened to the speech and joined in the huddle ready for the match start.

Nikko knew he had a job to do during this game but he was distracted. He nodded when Lysander mentioned him directly, quaffles he could handle. He just had to focus on the task at hand and get through the game and hopefully win.

Nerves twisted Connor's stomach every which way as he tried to focus on the team briefing, and not think about who they were playing. The thought of playing Gryffindor had been bad enough when it had only been Lysander and Emma he had to worry about, but just seeing Nikko across the pitch felt like a raw wound, and Connor had to turn his head away quickly to stay focused on the match. The less he thought about things, the better. He was only here to win, and that meant tuning out all of his personal problems.

Amy couldn't shake the feeling of sadness when she thought about the fact that this would be Elliot's last game. She hoped that it would be a good one, but she knew how well Gryffindor played. She smiled at Jordie and Rene, who would be playing their first game today. If they played as well as they had in practice, they would do well.

Tilly was ready to knock some Gryffindors off of their brooms and make them chug Skele-Gro like water. She had eaten a solid dinner, slept for eleven hours, and wolfed down a hearty breakfast beforehand. Most importantly, she continued to channel optimistic thoughts. It wouldn't do her any good to consider the fact that Hufflepuff lost often. She grinned at her teammates, itching to take to the skies and show the school what their team was made of.

Reeve spent a moment looking at each piece of pqrchment he'd been handed before confirming that all was in order and pocketing the parchments. Reeve cast the sonorous charm and then addressed the captains. "Hufflepuff, you will be Keeping the North hoops. Gryffindor, you will be Keeping the south. Please be mindful to all of the rules and keep the game fair and respectful. Please get back to your teams, mount your brooms, and prepare to fly!"

Reeve opened the game chest and released the snitch and bludgers. They all flew right into the air, the snitch disappearing from his sight line immediately. Reeve reached for the quaffle and then headed for his broom. When he was high enough, he tossed the quaffle into the air. "Game on!" he declared.

Out of Character:
Game Notes - please read
1. Be sure to review the rules. Any questions regarding the rules should be sent to your captain(s). If they cannot answer or need additional clarity to support you, they can PM me.

2. If you have any issues seeing the score on the referee's first post or with your access to the quidditch system, please send a PM including both me and your captain(s). It may be that they've forgotten to add you to the system or may be a bigger issue.

3. Dont forget to refresh the page before you post! Someone might sneak in a post while you are working on yours and first post counts.

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.

5. The game is meant to be interactive, so read your fellow players posts before posting! Stick with the game from beginning to end, from kicking off the ground to touching back down! Have fun!

Chloë laughed at Lysander's speech, grinning when Sully tugged her closer. Once it seemed like the game was about to start she mounted her broom, ready to go. As soon as the ref started things she kicked off into the air, grabbing the quaffle after it was thrown into play and heading to the hufflepuff hoops.

As the game started he quickly went of into the air and tried to catch the quaffle but Chloe beat him. But that was fine. He grinned and flew along with her to back her off in case needed. But he knew Chloe could do it.

Lysander took to the sky, immediately chasing off the closest bludger. He swung his bat, watching it sail past his target in his haste to get a lead in the game.

Chloë was glad to see Noel backing her up as she flew towards the hufflepuff hoops. She aimed her shot and took it, grinning as she watched the quaffle sail through.

Lysander cheered loudly as Chloe managed the first goal of the game. A great start! He sped off to keep close to Hufflepuffs seeker, hunting down a bludger in the meantime.

Tilly decided to start the game off strong and aim for @Flynn North, the Gryffindor seeker. Her jaw dropped as she actually hit him. She'd never been successful with her first bludger in a game. Hopefully this would turn the odds in Hufflepuff's favor.
