Trophy Showcase:
Slytherin,HufflepuffThe students had already been back in school for a month, and hadn't seen a game yet, but that would change soon. Reeve was excited to get back to it, the current quidditch champions set to take part in the first match. It was late morning, the humidity in the air quite thick on this day and the sun shining brightly. It wouldn't be an easy match, and he wondered if the sun's brightness would impact the Seekers.

It didn't take Reeve long to set up the field, making sure school brooms were available for those who didn't have their own but still played. He looked at the stands as they filled up, smiling at how eager everyone else seemed to be to get this match underway.

Glad for the water he'd brought along, Reeve took a long swig and hoped the players were staying hydrated ahead of the game. As the stands continued to fill in anticipation of the match ahead, Reeve waited for the captains.

Elliot had spent most of the morning trying to convince himself he wasn't nervous before eventually giving up. He was always anxious before games. As much as he loved quidditch, there was no getting away from that aspect, especially as seeker, but now that he was one of the team captains, it was like that anxiety had compounded on itself tenfold. Now not only was he responsible for catching the snitch, but what also felt like every other thing that could possibly happen to the team on the pitch today. And of course their game just had to be against Slytherin. The reigning champions for four years. The team that Blake Irons captained. Who Elliot had lost to spectacularly last year. Great.

After spending a good deal of time pacing in the locker room, Elliot made his way out onto the pitch, glad he could channel some of his nervous energy into warm up stretches as everyone got ready. "You're going to do great today, guys. Just like we did in practice," He told the team as they gathered together, though he knew he sounded no where near as convincing as he wanted. He glanced over at Abian, needing his co-captain's support more than ever today as the game came closer to beginning.

Tilly arrived to the pitch with her broom and bat in hand. She had felt nothing but excitement up until this morning, but now she was struggling with a sudden attack of nerves. The Hufflepuff pumped herself up. Even though Slytherin were the reigning champs, she was determined to do her best. She joined her teammates and waited (not so patiently) for the game to begin.

Daintree arrived at the pitch and was ready for this game. He wasn't sure how it would go, but he was eager for it regardless of that. Quidditch was that one thing Hogwarts had offered him that always delivered for him. He hoped they could win this game and bring another slytherin victory.

Liusaidh knew she wouldn't get to play, she was an alternate but there was zero harm in that. She could deal for the year and then hopefully one of the other chasers would realise how awful they were and quit so she could take their spot. She was on the pitch and spotted Tilly in amongst the hufflepuffs, she'd known the girl had managed to get on to the team and had just forgotten about it. "TILLY! GOOD LUCK!" she shouted to the other girl. They were in competition sure, but she didn't care really.

linden made his way onto the quidditch pitch. he was so nervous. but his hands were gripped tightly around his new nimbus 2001. today would be his first quidditch game. and they were playing against slytherin the must recent undefeated champions. he had never thought that he would end up on the house quidditch team. let alone on the starting line up just a month after joining the team. his plan was to be an alternative while he learned the ropes but with the old keeper leaving the team apparently that was not what was to happen. as he crossed the pitch he looked up at the croud and realised he didn't care about winning. he just cared about not falling off his broom or doing something equally as embarrassing, and he was only playing keeper. a fairly small role compared to the others. he didn't know how some of the other players could walk accross the pitch with their head held high filled with confidence like this was just a regular tuesday for them. wishing he had his sisters confidence he sat and waited listening to the captains motiation siliently chewing his tounge as he waited for the match to start.

Abian felt nervous but also excited about today's game. He was full of hope, as he was sure that they were going to do well today. he was smiling brightly at the team, barley paying attention to the Slytherins. He knew they had been a strong team last year, but that didn't say anything about this year. It was Hufflepuff's time, Abian could feel it. Abian let Elliot speak first, then clapped him on the back. "We're going to win." He said full of confidence. "We both believe in you. Let's show Slytherin they aren't unbeatable." He said. "Go Hufflepuff!" He then went to deliver the lineup to the referee.

Paige was extremely excited for her first-ever Quidditch match as an official member of the team. Whilst spectating the match from the benches had been fun and all, the fact that she could finally participate in them was even better. And apparently, the weather agreed with her, as it was rather nice outside. There was no way that Hufflepuff would win today, she was not going to let that happen.

Penny was a ball of nerves and excitement when she arrived for her first game. She was an alternative beater and ready to play if the team needed her. This was Quidditch after all and anything could happen. She looked at @Ruben Right and raised a fist to bump his saying, "We got this." They had in common they were both alternatives and this was their first game.

Hunter was just arriving at the Quidditch Pitch and he couldn't believe he would actually be playing a game today. He had just got used to the idea of getting in the main team, he couldn't believe he was actually going to play in a real match. He hoped this one went better than the practice, he definitely needed this to be better than the practice.

Eleanor was bouncing up and down with excitement as she picked at her breakfast. Today was the first Quidditch game she was ever going to play in. She was nervous to mess up in front of the entire school and disappoint her mother. She wanted to please her and make her proud like Jakey and Noah. Eleanor made her way down to the pitch to change for the game. She walked to the Slytherin side of the pitch to stretch with her team.

Lillith knew she probably wouldn't be able to play in today's game, because she was an alternative, but that didn't matter. The slytherins were a scary team anyways, with last year's wins, they seemed to be unbeatable. But she had a good feeling about the games today, they would win, especially since they did so well in practice. Lillith brought her pom poms to the bench, her hair in a cute yellow bow and her makeup done with hufflepuff's house colours. She had last minute decided against the whole cheerleader uniform, she didn't want to go overboard with her outfit. "Go Hufflepuff!" She shouted as she arrived at the pitch, pushing her pompoms up towards the sky and shaking them.

Trophy Showcase:
After the team's last practice, Blake didn't know how he felt about today's game. Some things had gone right, but others hadn't gone the way he had hoped at all, and it was much easier to focus on those than think about the game itself. His last face-off against Elliot had been far too close for comfort, and although Elliot himself wasn't aware of the change in their dynamic since then, Blake knew all too well how different things were now.

No, it was much easier to focus on the team than think about his feelings. Every time he even considered the fact that Lars was probably watching today his breakfast threatened to pop up and say hello, so he refused to let himself think about anything but the game and his strategies and what would be best for the team. "ALRIGHT, listen up!" He called out to the team after he had finished handing in the lineup to Reeve. "We aren't just going to win, we're going to destroy them. That means you commit a hundred percent." He said with a pointed look to Eleanor. "That means you play with your teammates, not against them." He continued, giving an even more pointed look to Tres. "That means you go for the guts, no holding back." He added, glancing at both beaters. "These guys on the benches are chomping at the bit to be where you lot are in the air, so I'm expecting you to earn your positions, or I'm sure they'd be more than happy to take over." He added with a gesture to the alternates. "You're all going to give this game everything you have to give, and then some. We play hard as a team, we win big as a team. Nothing else is acceptable." Tough love was what had made him a champion, and so tough love was what the team was getting from him. They had to win today. "Let's go show this school what a team of champions looks like!"

Connor didn't think he had stopped smiling since the moment he woke up today. He was ecstatic to finally be playing in his first official Quidditch match as a real member of the team. He hurried onto the pitch with his bat and broom, joining the rest of the team to listen to the captain's speeches. He couldn't wait for the game to get going, the encouragement only making his grin even wider. As he listened though, Connor could hear what sounded like the Slytherin captain shouting at his team, and Connor found himself even more grateful that he was a Hufflepuff. He couldn't imagine having a captain who was so mean to his own team.

Mordred only half-listened to Blake. Mo knew what he was doing. In his opinion, he had not done so well in practice, but he was always ready for a game. This would be no exception

Reeve could hear only bits and pieces of each captain's speech, but noted they were markedly different. He reviewed the lineups and then spoke to the Captains. "Slytherin, you'll be guarding the South hoops. Hufflepuff, the North." The man reminded the captains to keep the game fair and about some other rules and then sent them back to their teams.

Turning to the game chest, the man released the bludgers and snitch. Reeve tucked the quaffle under his arm and flew up into the air. Tossing the quaffle up high, he declared "Game on!"

Out of Character:
Game Notes - Please read
1. Be sure to read the rules prior to posting. Any questions regarding the rules should be sent to your captain(s) first. If they cannot answer, they can PM me.

2. If you have any issues seeing the score on the referees first post or with your access to the quidditch system, please PM me.

3. Dont 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.

5. The game is meant to be interactive (and requires a certain amount of players to be active -see rules) so read your fellow players posts before posting! Stick with the game from beginning to end!

Linden was nervous as the captains came and gave them the prep talk. it was short and seemed a lot less agressive than the slytherin one looked like. "Goo hufflepuff" he called before the huddle dispanded. as he waited for the match to stat his eyes romed the stands. there were a lot of people up there. he wondered if alexei or his aunt would be up there. he hadly had the time to think that before they were beeng told to mount and with that the game was off. he took to the air and headed towards the north hoops. hoping that the chasers would do a good job and not need him to save too many goals as he still wasnt particually stable on the broom.

Paige didn't know how she felt about the speech given to the team by Blake but one thing was sure, she agreed that they were champions and that they had to win today's match. She climbed on her broomstick and kicked herself off of the ground once they were allowed to do so, immediately on the hunt for a bludger to hit.

Tilly vaulted up into the air with her bat in search of bludgers. She thought she would go for the gold to start things off right. She smacked a bludger towards the Slytherin team captain and seeker, @Blake Irons . He looked like he needed a good clobbering. Unfortunately, Tilly missed, but she'd have other opportunities, right?

Tres rolled her eyes as Blake told her to work with the team. How dumb were these people if they didn’t realise she’d been practising how to steal a Quaffle for the benefit of stealing from the other team? Of course in a real game she wouldn’t go against her own house. As the game began, she mounted her broom and sped off towards the Quaffle and closely following the Hufflepuff boy that grabbed it. He had no idea what was coming for him.
