Quidditch Game: Gryffindor vs Ravenclaw

Gryffindor, Ravenclaw
The start of the quidditch season was always very exciting. The shed was open and the man was busy levitating the game chest and several school brooms for the players who might need them to bring to the center of the pitch. As always the grass was well manicured, the school staff doing their job of keeping the grounds well. It was a good day for quidditch.

The day was neither cold nor hot, but somewhere comfortably in the middle. Reeve took in the beautiful sky, not a cloud marring the bright blue of it. As the stands filled around him, Reeve continued his preparations until the captains walked over to him, ready to begin the game. Reeve spent a few moments going over the rules with them ahead of the season's start.

It would be a good game. He could feel it.

Out of Character:
Arrivals only please. I am having a small problem with the QCP so had to do things manually. If you see buttons, do not touch them until I post again with Reeve to officially start the game.

I encourage all players to use the time before the game begins to refresh your memory of the rules and gameplay.

Captains: Please make sure your teams are set in the QCP prior to posting your lineup.

Elara couldn't believe she was at her first quidditch game as a team member. While she figured she'd be benched, it just meant she'd have to show a little extra school spirit. She had placed a lot of gold glitter in her hair, tying off her two french braids with red ribbons. As she made her way onto the field, she look at Zay with a big grin. "Isn't this sooooo exciting?" @Isaiah Thompson

Hamish was still surprised he'd made the team, and honestly he hadn't been impressed by him performance during practice. He felt very small, and very nervous, like a child playing dress up in clothes too big for him. He stared at the ground, swallowing nervously and fiddling with the school broom in his hands. He didn't expect to be put in to play today. Somehow, that didn't help his nerves any. He wondered if Seamus was in the stands, but couldn't bring himself to peek to look for his twin.

Juniper wasn't feeling as hopeful after their last practice, but at the same time, they all had a better chance of winning now that Blake was gone from Slytherin. Hopefully, Ravenclaw could knock them off their throne this year. She swung her bat over her shoulder, her broom in the other hand, as she looked out at the stands, giving a big stretch as she waited for the game to start.

Noel made it’s way to the pitch. He was excited for the game and had good faith in the team. Ready to beat Ravenclaw in this game. He was early and as he walked on the pitch with his broom inside of his hand. And waited for the rest of the team to join.

Minnie arrived at the pitch, ready for this game. She really wanted to win, it would be a good start to her last quidditch season, but she also didn't exactly hold out hope for it either. She gave her starting list to the referee and looked to her players. "Let's just give this our best, Gryffindor are a strong team, with a strong chaser group, but don't let that deter us," she knew the game relied upon her to win it, but she wanted to encourage her team as much as she could.

Seeker- minnie calida, captain
keeper - Sawyer Carnahan
beater - Juniper Zumwalt, Finn Madison
Chaser - Hattie thorne, Branson archer, Thalia Pourroulis
Alternates - Chloe Chan, Beater; xiuying huang, chaser; hamish reid, seeker

Branson arrived at the pitch nervous but eager to get started. He wanted to do well in this game. Wanted to do better than he had in the practice.

Chloë felt quite confident in the gryffindor team's skills, especially with how well Flynn had done in practice. That didn't take away from the fact that Minnie was a more experienced seeker though and she just hoped that faith would be on their side this time. Especially since losing this game meant that her friends wouldn't have any other shot at the championship. The weather was favourable though and she was excited to get to play alongside them for one more year. She took a stand with the rest of the team on the pitch and waited to see what Lysander had to say.

Zay had to admit that actually walking on to the pitch felt a lot more exciting than making his way up to the stands, even if he knew he likely didn't get to play. He was still part of the team and that was cool as. "Totally." He grinned back at El, glad that he would be able to cheer the team on with his friend.

Nikko was cautiously optimistic about the game as he made sure all parts of his uniform were on correctly. Their last season hadn't gone well but Flynn had done great during practice even though he couldn't say the same for himself. But hopefully their chaser would make up for any shots that he missed. He looked up to the stands and quickly looked away, not wanting to think about how most of the school was looking at them.

Sully swung his arms confidently as he stepped out onto the pitch. He knew there was a lot riding on the game today, but he just simply wasn't considering any other outcome but Gryffindor winning today. He slung an arm around Noel and Chloë as he joined them ready to get started. "Ready to kick some ass?" He said with an easy grin.

Sawyer shuffled nervously out onto the pitch to join the rest of the Ravenclaw team. He'd been trying not to pysch himself out too bad for hist first game and had failed miserably. It was exciting to finally be playing a proper game, but Sawyer couldn't help but shoot the bench a longing look as Minnie addressed the team, especially when she brought up Gryffindor's strong chasers. But it was fine. He'd be fine.

Hattie was very much ready for the first quidditch game of the year. She gathered around with the Ravenclaw team as Minnie spoke, trying not to let the mention of the strong Gryffindor chasers get to her. She could still do it and she wasn't going to give up.

Lysander needed a calming draught to quell his excited jitters, bouncing on his heels in anticipation to take off as he gathered everyone on the pitch. He felt good about this match, and looked forward to it more than daunting it. "This is it guys, but it's just the start. We're going all the way to the top this year, so let's make sure we get there." They had a strong practice, and Flynn had surprised him with how well he'd done. He'd also surprised him with how much of a sh1t he'd been. He hoped that only one of those things continued into the actual matches. He left his team briefly to make his way over to the referee. "Hey Reeve!" He beamed, handing over his line-up sheet to kick things off.

Gryffindor Line-up
Beaters: Lysander Summers (Captain), Emma van Houten
Chasers: Chloe Thompson, Solomon Tofilau, Noel Waldgrave
Keeper: Nikko Blackwood
Seeker: Flynn North

Reeve took a look at the parchments and read over the list of names. All seemed to be in order so he nodded his head to the and then slipped the pieces of parchment into his pocket. Reeve cast the sonorous charm after he made sure the captains didn't have any questions for him. "Welcome to the start of the quidditch season. For today's game, Gryffindor will be Keeping the North hoops. Ravenclaw, you will be Keeping the South hoops. Let's keep this game fun. Please get back to your teams, mount your brooms, and prepare to fly!"

Reeve opened the game chest and released the snitch and bludgers. Both zipped into the air, seemingly just as eager to begin as everyone else seemed to be. 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 check 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!

Branson got on his broom, and as the quaffle was thrown up rushed forward to grab it out of the air. He then continued towards the gryffindor hoops, tightly clutching the quaffle.

Flynn was feeling a little confident after the practice, but he knew he still had to prove himself in the match. Hopping on his broom he was quick to set off in search of the snitch.

Juniper listened to Minnie's speech and then quickly took the sky, attempting to hit the bludger Lysander had just hit but watched as it went completely out of range of anyone.

Nikko kicked off into the air as the whistle blew and took up his position in front of the hoops and searched to see who had gotten hold of the quaffle first. He spotted a Ravenclaw chaser coming his way and got ready.
