Hufflepuff, SlytherinThe last game had been a fun one, and Reeve knew they were in for some more fun today. He just with the weather had chosen to cooperate. The clouds were fine, but the wind gusts were strong. Even he had some trouble flying about when a gust had passed. The day would certainly test the flying skills of the players.

As the stands filled around him, Reeve continued his preparations on the field. He could see the bludgers straining in the chest, and gace a shake of his head. It felt like they were going to be trouble today. Reeve eventually finished and then spent a few moments waiting for the captains in order to go over the rules with them ahead of the games start.

Out of Character:
Arrivals only please. The issue with the QCP persists. 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.

Eleanor was both nervous and excited for their first game of the season. She changed into her robes in the locker room before pulling her hair back in a tight ponytail. She grabbed her broom and walked out to the Slytherin side of the pitch.

Hunter was feeling pretty confindent about this game, without Blake things would be easier, not to mention it would be their house, Hufflepuff, the one that would get the opportunity to beat Slytherin for a long time. He hoped this year their team would win, he knew they could.

It was Lucie's first game as a keeper and she was looking very forward to it. She had been doing well in practice and was ready to show everyone her skills. She gripped onto her broom tightly, walking out onto the pitch to get ready for the game.

Ruben was feeling pretty nervous about this whole thing, he was feeling a lot of pressure to keep the winning streak and the consequences that Professor Styx could give them was not really something he was looking forward to, even though the other houses were probably tired of losing all the time so they were probably cheering for them to actually lose. Ruben shook these thoughts from his head and focused on the game, he knew he could win this thing.
He approached the team and a gave them all a small smile that quickly dissipated "You guys all know what to do, I trust that our practices were enough even for the newbies to learn what they should and shouldn't do." he said, but since he wasn't sure he decided to remind them "Chasers score, on the opponents hoops preferably, Lucie don't let any quaffle go through the hoops, beaters don't give hufflepuff's seeker a moment to rest, take him out as soon as possible", and then turning to the benched players "You, get ready to start playing at any second we don't know what might happen". He wasn't really sure if he was being a good captain but this was sort of what Blake would usually do, except he would probably be yelling but again, not many people liked Blake as a captain so he wasn't really sure if he should do what Blake would have, "If we win this thing we are getting Butterbeer on the next Brightstone Weekend, on me" that was something Blake probably would never do.

It was Parker's first game and he was extremely glad that he was just an alternate because the level of his stress would really increase. However, he showed up to the game even if he was terrified, he still listened to Ruben and then, gave awkward smile and thumbs up to Lucie. "Good luck!" He said while passing by her to get to his bench and just hoped that no bludgers would manage to knock him off his bench.

It had been a long time since Celia had felt the nervous buzz of anticipation before a competition. Restlessness had overtaken her body, her every muscle tense. She’d barely been able to eat anything that morning. But whereas her old self had hated the sensation, now she welcomed it. This was where she belonged — the center of attention, on the precipice of victory. It had been so long since she’d had a win — in sports, in competition, in life — and she couldn’t wait to get started.

Celia turned her attention to Ruben as he started to speak. She nodded resolutely at his instructions even if they were a bit obvious. It was not lost on her that she would likely be the youngest player in the air, and while she firmly believed she deserved the spot, she knew she had to convince others of the same. Celia did frown slightly at Ruben’s bribery attempt. She was still banned from leaving the castle grounds, so that was one offer she wouldn’t be able to take him up on. But it didn’t matter. Individual glory would be much more rewarding than any butterbeer.

René knew in theory he had no real reason to be nervous. He likely wasn't playing today and from what everyone was saying, Slytherin shouldn't be nearly as scary as they'd been in the previously years. Still, René bobbed nervously as he joined the team on the pitch, trying to ignore the growing crowd in the stands as he listened to Amy and Connor. He also tried to ignore the stab of jealousy he felt when he saw that Celia seemed to have made the Slytherin team as starting beater while he was still an alternate. Sure, he had played a game as a starting chaser before, but it wasn't the same.

Ivelisse was glad to be part of the team, even as an alternate. It as well-known that Slytherin had been the unbeaten champions for various years in a row now and she wondered if Ruben would be able to keep things that way. She listened to him speak when they were all gathered on the pitch before taking her spot on the bench with the other alternates, keen to see what would happen.

Tilly's confidence had taken a dive after the last Hufflepuff practice. However, she tried not to let that show. She stood tall as she entered the Quidditch pitch and kept her chin up as she mounted her broom. Now that Blake was graduated, maybe they would finally have the chance to beat Slytherin. Tilly was certainly ready to crack some heads.

Lucas arrived at the pitch for the match, his heart beating fast. This would be his first match as the Hufflepuff seeker, and he was very nervous about it. The Slytherin seeker was at least a bit younger than him, and he knew he was pretty new to it all as well. But Lucas still felt an immense pressure weighing him down as he waited for the match to start.

Jordie was nervous. The last time he'd been in a game he hadn't actually scored anything. He walked to the pitch with the others, hoping he would do better today and chewing the inside of his cheek as he waited for the game to start.

While Natalia wasn't surprised she wasn't playing in the game, she was a bit disappointed. She sighed, then went to sit on the bench. Maybe Indi would get taken out so she could play, one could hope.

Indi was excited for the game to finally start since there was no question this year that she would be on the starting line up. She only partially listened to Ruben's speech and rolled her eyes at his joke about aiming for the right hoops. Granted, practice didn't go well for her but she didn't appreciate the comment. She tried her best not to look too smug as she spotted Natalia on the bench before turning her attention to the crowd as she waited for the game to begin.

It was a good thing nobody else could hear how hard Connor's heart was thudding as he made his way onto the pitch. He had never been scared before a Quidditch match, not like this. The stakes suddenly felt so much higher now that he was a captain, and his awful performance in their last match still plagued his mind. He could feel the eyes of the whole school on him as they prepared to face off against Slytherin, who had been the champions for so long that playing them felt almost pointless. And of course this was who he had to face for his first match as co-captain. At least they had lost half their team this year, maybe the newer players would be easier to face.

There was also the matter of his own team to worry about, and once he had handed in the lineup to the referee, Connor cleared his throat as he rejoined the Hufflepuffs, doing his best not to look at Lucas. "Alright, um, we all know what we're doing. Tilly, let's focus on their Seeker, try to keep him off his game. Everyone play their hardest, we... we all know this is a tough opponent, so win or lose, let's just all give it our best and have fun." He gave a pained smile, quite sure as far as his first speech as co-captain went, that had been terrible. But it was over at least, and he looked to Amy to see if she had anything to add.

Amy was looking forward to today's game, even though she was unsure on how it would go. She hoped that they would have a better chance of winning now that Blake had graduated, but she wasn't sure if she'd seen the new seeker play before. She nodded around at the team as they arrived before listening to Connor's speech. She gave him a smile, understanding the nerves around first game as a co-captain."You all know what to do, like Connor said, so have fun!"

Reeve was surprised to see new captains for Slytherin. He'd figured the other Slytherin captain needed to graduate at some point, so it made sense but would take some getting used to. He nodded as he reviewed their line up card and then took a look at the Hufflepuff one, nodding to that one as well. Slipping the pieces of parchment into his pocket, Reeve cast the sonorous charm.

"Hufflepuff will be Keeping the North hoops. Slytherin, you will be Keeping the South hoops. Let's keep this game fun and fair. Please get back to your teams, mount your brooms, and prepare to fly!"

Reeve opened the game chest and released the snitch and bludgers. The bludger beelined for his head and Reeve only just ducked low enough to avoid being knocked out. He got up covering his head but the bludger had disappeared. Reeve reached for the quaffle and then headed for his broom, shaking his head at the close call. When he was high enough, he tossed the quaffle into the air. "Game on!" he declared.

Jordie smiled nervously as Connor spoke. Determined not to fail, he shot into the air and grabbed the quaffle, shooting towards the other keeper.

Connor was braced when the game began and shot into the air, chasing after one of the bludgers that had nearly hit Reeve. Striking it hard with his bat, Connor watched the ball streak just past the Slytherin seeker, barely missing him.

Tilly aimed for Ruben Right, her fellow fourth year who unfortunately happened to be Slytherin's seeker and her target for the game. She grimaced as her bludger volleyed past Ruben, but her agony was short-lived as it crashed into @Daintree Vaskevold. She smirked and flew on. At least hitting the other team's beater could give Lucas that much more of a chance to catch the snitch.

Linden made his way to the quidditch pitch. The match against southern was not going to be an east one and he wasn’t sure deep down if they would be able to win. Slithering seemed like such an unstoppable force in the pitch. But they would try. And at the end of the day he wasn’t there to win. He was there to play.
he listened to connors pep talk and then took to the sky. Making his way to the goals. He cheered when Jordie managed to get the quaffle to start with. He was glad he was on the starting line up. He was going to be good. Not that he wasn’t already. From his positions by the hoops he watched the game unfurl ready to guard when the ball ended up his way.

Lucie smiled slightly as Parker wished her luck. She wasn't sure whether or not it was sarcastic, but appreciated it nonetheless. The captain was right that she needed to not let anything through, and so she took her position at the hoops, keeping an eye on the Hufflepuff chaser who had caught the quaffle first.

Circling the pitch, Connor studied the players positions for a moment, trying to figure out the best angle for his next shot.
