Ravenclaw,Gryffindor
It was the start of the quidditch season, and Reeve could feel the excitement in the air. The day was bright, and the stands were filling up quickly as he worked diligently to get the field prepared for the game. Thankfully, it was a relatively easy task, made easier but the use of magic, and soon enough the school brooms were ready for use, the game chest front and center.

It would be the Ravenclaw and Gryffindor teams today, and he knew both teams had seemed very eager as he'd gone over the rules with them only just moments earlier. He waited for the captains, knowing they would come over as they arrived.

Arrivals only please.
Captains: Please be sure your lineups are all set up in the QCP prior to posting it in here.

Marcos stood on the pitch with Jacob and the rest of the team. This was the first game of the season and the first game in which he and Jacob were captains. The teen felt pretty nervous about what this game might bring him, he hoped that they would gel together as a team and it would be good, he hoped they'd win, but would settle upon not being completely trashed. The gryffindor had his broom in hand and looked towards the team, "Let's give them a good game," he encouraged his team, letting Jacob say more if he wanted to but choosing then to go and give the line up to the referee. He was optimistic, he was sure that they would all do well in this game.
Line up said:
Seeker - Syrus Stilinski
Keeper -Marcos Morales (co-captain)
Beaters- Jacob Kingsley (co-captain), Gwen Owens-Lee
Chasers- Gabriel Rosenberg, Jessica Cade, Jemma Potter
Alternates - Onyx Michaels, Fleur van Houten, Willow Cullen

Gwen could not believe she was about to play her first ever real game of quidditch on the field. It was the first game of the season and Gwen hadn't ever felt this nervous. She had a tight grip on her broom as she gathered around with her teammates to hear what her captain had to say. It wasn't much, and Gwen was thankful for this as it meant he was confident in them and Gwen would try her best to keep his confidence up. She wanted this to be a good game and one that she would gladly remember. The gryffindor stood with anticipation as she waited for the match to begin.

Fleur headed to the Quidditch pitch for the first match of the year. She had looked forward to the season, even though she probably wouldn't get to play as an alternate. The girl carried her broomstick down to the pitch and stood with her team. She wasn't too surprised when she wasn't on the starting lineup, but she was a little disappointed. She had hoped the captains had noticed her during practice. Fleur shrugged it off, then looked at the Ravenclaw team. She gave her brother a thumbs up, though it was also unlikely that he would play.

Lars' hands were shaking as he made his way to the Quidditch pitch. So much so that he nearly dropped his broom a few times. What had he been thinking? Trying out? He had done okay in the practice, but he was in no way ready to actually play in the game. It was a good thing Simon Vanity was the team's actual keeper, and Lars hoped he wouldn't have to replace him. He hoped bludgers would stay far away from the older boy. Lars noticed Fleur on the Gryffindor side giving him a thumbs up, and he gave her a weak smile in return.

Simon was ready for his first real game, there was stuff riding on this for him. More so than just the actual game. He needed to do well, he needed to impress. The boy stood with the rest of his team, feeling a little nervous but certainly up for the challenge. This would be good he would just have to remember all he had learned so far. Simon looked towards the captains as he waited for their words of wisdom should they give it before the game got started. He was ready for this.

Zoe was beyond excited for her first proper quidditch match. She thought she had done pretty well in their practice, and couldn't wait to get started playing the game for real. It was fun to be playing against her sister's house as well, and Zoe wondered which colours Harley was wearing in the stands. Wishing she could see her sister, Zoe stood with the rest of her team and waited for the match to begin.

Though her hands stayed steady as ever, October felt as though she had been trembling all morning, near sick with nerves. This was the Ravenclaw team's first match with her as co-captain, and she felt as though all eyes were on her. As the seeker, the team's success had always weighed on her in a way that made October nervous, but now with her new positions as co-captain and Head Girl, the pressure felt all-encompassing. The eyes of the entire school were on her, and she didn't know if she could stand up to the scrutiny. October was uncharacteristically silent as she handed their lineup to the referee, then returned to her team. She knew there were eyes on her, knew there were people waiting for their speech of encouragement, but October felt as though she had given speech after speech recently, and words were for once failing her. She looked around the group, trying to gather herself, and took a nervous breath. "Let's... let's play a good game today, team." She said, trying to sound stronger than she felt. "Remember what we practiced. Eyes on the match, no getting distracted. Support your teammates, and let's show them what we can do."

Seeker: October Alcott (Co-Captain)
Keeper: Lars van Houten
Beaters: Jackson Cade (Co-Captain), Zoe Tsuji
Chasers: Joshua Toubia, Sophie Elliston, Simon Vanity
Alternates: Alexis Sage Kramer, Katia Hensel, Minnie Calida

Jackson was looking forward to his first game as a co-captain and was hopeful they would get off to a good start. He made his way to the changing rooms and after changing into his Quidditch robes he walked out onto the pitch where the team was gathering.

Jess wanted to win. James has won the championship during his time with the team and that was an experience Jess wanted for herself. A new season brought new hope of success and she was eager to get started. Jess changed into her robes in the changing rooms and made her way out onto the pitch t meet her teammates.

Willow made her way out of the changing rooms and onto the pitch. It was the first quidditch game of the year and she was excited.
She took a seat next to Fleur hey. Good luck as the starting line up was announced she felt a little disappointed that she wouldn’t be up. But she knew as an alternate she shouldn’t expect to be on first. She looked at the rest of the team. good luck guys. she saib before looking as syrups. bets still on. So go get that snitch. she said. She had bought enough butterbeer for everyone on the bright stone weekend so she would be ready to celebrate or commiserate depending on the outcome.

Onyx followed the others out onto the pitch. He was only an alternate so he doubted he'd play today, but it was pretty cool to be in the uniform. This must be what Sapph felt like last year, eager to play. He turned his gaze up to the stands and waved energetically. He knew she'd see him. He sauntered to a spot near Willow. He smiled at his teammates. This should be a fun experience, he'd never seen a Quidditch game like this before.

Jemma was pleased to be back on the pitch. She walked over to the Gryffindor benches with her broom in hand. She couldn’t wait to get back up in the air. She smiled encouragingly at Jake, knowing he was probably nervous and excited for his first game as co-captain.

Syrus came around to the pitch with his modified broomstick in hand. Lizzie is missed, he didn't feel the same energy as he experienced last year. Morales was lacking it and Syrus couldn't take the Kingsley boy seriously, sometimes. Syrus gaze over at Willow, nodding as he gave his broomstick a squeeze. "Yeah no worries, you'll be buying butterbeers this whole season," the teen grins and sauntered forth with the others. "Let's Go Gryffindors!"

Jacob couldn't believe it. His first game as co- captain was here. Having taken a few breaths in the locker room, Jacob walked onto the pitch, his usual boisterous self. He'd already put on his gear and watched as Marcos headed off to hand in their lineup. "We've been practicing hard for this moment. You all know what to do. Let's just play hard...and have fun" he added almost as an afterthought. Jacob caught the friendly smiles of his friends and cousin and the skeptical looks from some of the others. He knew that not everyone was happy about his promotion, especially not the older players. But he'd been on the team as long as some of them and longer than some others. He knew how good he was on the pitch. Jacob leaned on his broom, wondering what was taking the captains so long.

Joshua was a little disappointed Alexis wouldn't be playing today. He needed her, he needed his best friend here, just as much he needed to see Simon was still on the team. Joshua didn't want to feel abandoned, Alexis was the reason why he tried out in the first place. He wonders what was wrong, why she wasn't playing. Joshua came to the pitch wielding a school's broomstick in hand. He'll have to do his best without her. October's pep talk was somewhat comforting, not all great but it was something to keep in mind.

Gabriel was so ready for this day. His practice was not bad, but he needed to score more and more. He joined Marcos and the others of the team and smiled confident. They were gonna win this from Ravenclaw. They had too. He looked at the two girls who where his fellow chasers and hoped they were gonna do good as well. But Ravenclaw had a seeker and she was kind of good, so he hoped that Syrus would do as good as he usually did. He than smiled at Jacob but still had hoped to get the position himself. But today he would not focus on that, but on the game. And he kind of liked Jacob he was a good beater. But the first actual game without Lizzie was strange.He grinned at Syrus and joined him. '' GO GO GRYFFINDOR! WE ARE NOT AFRAID. WE ARE LIONS!!'' He said loud and looked towards the Ravenclaw team for a moment. He was so ready and competitive to win. He took his broom and put his leg above it ready to go into the air as the game would begin. He wanted that quaffle as the first.

Reeve studied the slips of parchment he had been given, making sure everything was in order before slipping the papers away. He noted an issue and quickly conferred with one of the captains to resolve. Satisfied now, Reeve nodded and slipped the parchments into his pocket. Reeve addressed the captains after casting the Sonorous charm on himself. "We discussed the rules earlier today. Please be advised you are responsible for ensuring your teams keep this game fair. Gryffindor, you'll be guarding the South hoops. Ravenclaw, you'll be guarding the North. Good luck to both of your teams. Now unless you have any questions, please return to your teams and get ready to fly."

Reeve released the bludgers and snitch without incident . Mounting his broom, Reeve kicked off into the air with the quaffle tucked under his arm. The referee flew up until he was in position in the middle of the pitch and then moved the quaffle to his hands. "Game on!" the man yelled as he tossed the quaffle into play.

After making some final adjustments to the lineup, October kicked off with the rest of her team at the whistle blow, and the rush of air through her hair as she took to the sky seemed to brush some of the pressure off at the same time. Nobody could ask anything of her up here. She only had one task; catching the snitch. Leaning close to her broom, October began to search the pitch for any glimmer of gold.

Zoe was ready for the game to begin. She was bouncing a little from foot to foot with anticipation by the time the whistle finally blew, and at once she shot into the air, streaking after one of the bludgers. Zoe wanted to make her mark and make it quickly, and she swung hard for the ball, crying out in surprise and delight as she managed to hit the Gryffindor Seeker when he had barely taken to the air.

Lars was alarmed to say the least when he realized he had to play instead of Simon, because Simon was replacing one of the chasers. His hands started to sweat, and he felt himself start to tremble. Why had Fleur talked him into this? Why had he tried out? Lars looked at Fleur in alarm, but then knew he had to get up in to the air. His sister wasn't playing, but he was, how was that fair? Lars flew into the air and headed over to the hoops. He hoped he could do okay, he had in the practice, but that had been fake. This was very real.

Fleur noticed Lars was going to play, which both worried and excited her. She was a little sad her brother got to have his debut in a real game before her, but she gave him another encouraging thumbs up before heading to the bench to watch the game.

Simon got on the broom and took the position in the sky that he needed to. The moment the whistle went and the ball was thrown up, he flew forward and grabbed the ball as it flew back down. He pushed forward heading directly for the goals. He felt more comfortable in goals, but he could do this easily. The part-veela made sure the ball was carefully and tightly held in his hand as he pushed forward.​

Marcos flew to the hoops and got himself ready. He was a little frustrated when within moments of the whistle blowing the seeker got hit by a bludger and the quaffle was caught by one of the ravenclaw chasers.He would have to pull it together and hopefully the rest of the team would too.​

Lars was glad that Simon managed to get the quaffle, because it meant he wouldn't have to save a goal anytime soon. He hoped the older boy would manage to score, as it would put a bit less pressure on Lars if they were ahead.
