It had taken some time to come to a decision, but Lysander was happy with the team he'd settled on. It wasn't totally ideal, with both a fresh seeker and a fresh keeper to replace the missing members of the team, nor was it ideal that they'd be facing off against Slytherin for their first match, but they'd roll with it. They had to. He gathered everyone at the pitch, with some spare gear out for anyone who didn't have their own, and waited until it seemed like they'd all arrived. "Okay. Hey everyone, and welcome, Skylar and Ronald. Good to have you guys in the team. We have a match against Slytherin at the end of the month, which is soon, I know. There's not a lot of time between now and then to get access to the pitch, so we need to make the time we have now count. I'm going to split you guys up into teams as usual. Uh, alright, so I guess Team Scarlet's gonna be me, Nikko, Sully...Chloe. Team Gold will be Emma, Knox, Noel, Skylar, and Ronald. Flynn, you're on your own, so don't worry about what everyone else is doing and focus solely on catching the snitch. Emma and I will focus on targetting the opposing teams and defending our own. Nikko, you're defending the north hoop. Ronald, you're defending the south hoop. Chasers...what am I saying, you guys know what you're doing. Let's get to it." He finished, blowing into his captain's whistle to make the most out of having it. He picked up his bat and mounted his own broom, kicking off the grass to take to the sky.​

Out of Character:
Post arrivals if you like, but you can get straight into the practice! Practice will run for about a week, and then we have our first match on the 19th.

Gryffindor,Practice

Nikko wasn't sure how to feel about being on the team for real this time. And with the game just around the corner there was not time to waste. He gave Lysander an thumbs up and kicked off into the air and went to take his place at the north hoop. Once in position he shook out his arms and got ready to keep his eyes on the quaffle, and especially Noel and Knox.

Lysander checked the skies for the bludgers he'd released, accelerating after the closest one in the hopes of getting to it before Emma could.

Flynn was more than a little nervous about being the team's full time seeker. Also a little surprised they had wanted him back on the team in the first place. But he wasn't going to think much on it, instead, the third year hopped on his broom and quickly set off in search of the snitch. Maybe he could make a quick catch and prove he wasn't completely useless.

Emma was excited about practice, and pretty proud of Lysander for being captain on his own and doing a good job. She gave him a big smile, then listened as the teams were split up. She was a bit sad she wasn't on the same team as Lysander, but it was fine. She got to the air, and started chasing the nearest bludger to get into the practice.

Lysander approached the bludger and swung his bat, watching as it sailed harmlessly past one of the Gold players he'd aimed for.

Sully was keen to be back on the pitch again, even more so now that his little brother had made the Hufflepuff team too. He'd need to be in top shape to show him up in case they played against each other. He stretched as Lysander greeted them, grinning and waving to their new members. They seemed so tiny, even though Sully knew they weren't first years.

"Hell yeah, Team Scarlet," he said when Lysander announced the practice teams, offering Chloë a fist bump before they got into the air. He would have preferred to try and kiss her, but he figured trying that on the pitch was a good way to get a bludger in the face. Kicking off, Sully scooped up the quaffle, ready to test out their new keeper's moves.

Noel was excited for an new quidditch year. He wanted to win so badly with Gryffindor. He still got this year and the next one to make that happen. When he made his way to the pitch he smiled at his friends. He was team gold. And ofcourse the lovebirds were together. They were hard to beat so he had to do his best with Knox, as chaser squad. He was ready to battle to his friends and hoped the competition would help them to train hard. He kicked off from the ground and tried to grab the quaffle but Sully got it. He flew along trying to steal it away from him.

Lysander kept his eyes on his team, though sped off when he realised a bludger was whizzing by.

He just needed to catch the snitch once, that was all he needed to do. Sucking in a lungful of breath of try and calm himself down somewhat, Flynn simply blocked out everyone else and kept looking.

Sully kept an eye out for a chance to pass to Chloë but with Noel right behind him, it was proving difficult. Instead, he shot forward, lobbing the quaffle past Ronald and into the left hoop with a cheer. "Good start, aye," he said smugly, circling back around.

Nikko cheered as Sully made his shot, and hoped the new guy didn't take it too hard. The chasers were really good, and he got ready for chasers to come his way as the quaffle was tossed back into play.

Lysander grinned as Sully managed a score. He almost felt bad for doing so, considering he was up against such a fresh keeper, but with how important their first match was going to be, they had to give it their all. There wasn't much room for going easy. He swung at another bludger, watching as once again it missed its mark.

Emma caught up with the bludger and managed to hit it at someone from team Scarlet. She watched and winced in sympathy as it hit Sully, but she did think it had been a good hit. "Go team Gold!" She shouted, hoping Sully wasn't too hurt.

Sully was focused on watching Ronald throw in the quaffle, so he didn't even notice the bludger until it was hitting him. "Oi!" he groaned, clutching onto his broom as it bucked to the side with the impact.

Hearing a score already, Flynn turned his head to see who it was, grinning slightly. "Nice one, Sully!" At least the chasers seemed to be on top form like usual.

Lysander had tried to swoop in to knock back the bludger Emma had sent Sully's way, but was too late by the time he got close enough. He shot off after the same bludger as it moved on, swinging his bat with the intention to send it back Emma's way, but he couldn't get a clear enough shot and ended up hitting @Noel Waldgrave instead.​

Fueled by his excellent shot earlier, Sully didn't waste any time when he saw another opening, scooping in to nab the quaffle before Knox or Noel could get their hands on it. "Get comfy back there, Nikko," he called across the pitch, though he wasn't sure Nikko could hear him. It seemed mean to immediately try to score against Ronald again, and he'd probably need to get some more space so Noel and Knox didn't corner him, so Sully looped back for a bit, keeping an eye out for Chloë or the other chasers.

Nikko laughed at Sully's comment and leaned back on his broom slightly as he waited for Team Scarlett to make another go at the southern hoops. He didn't get too comfortable and kept his eyes on the quaffle and the other chasers in case they tried to steal from Sully.

Ronald so amazed that the 1st score will be in the scarlet team nice one Solomon try to said to his teammate, but he shouted to his team and said to them that "it will be the 1st and last quaffle to enter our loop", Ronald try to defend the south hoop and have focused to his position as Alternate Keeper for this year Quidditch tournament. When he sees Sully attack again in their hoop, Ronald tries to sense which hoop will be to strike by sully, and he manages to stop the and to prove that he is so deserving to his spot as one quidditch player dor this year and our goal to win against their odds, and wish that this year will be in Gryffindor team to get Quidditch Cup this year.

Sully gave Chloë an apologetic look when he spotted another opening. Unable to resist the chance to show off again after Ronald's taunt, he swooped forward, coming in from the other side and grinning as he got past Ronald again. "More like that coming," he said to Ronald with a grin.

Ronald tries his best to catch the quaffle but Tully strike to another hoop was so quick, Ronald fighting spirit was in there and he wants to stop the chaser to make another point, Ronald said "I'm warming up" next time it will be my victory to guard our goalpost, Ronald try to tighten his helmet, knee pads and his chest pads he tried to be more speedy to stop the quaffle, Ronald ready again for another play, he throws the quaffle to his teammates Emma and wish to get the score in another hoop north side.

Skylar couldn’t believe she’d made the team this year. Ever since she’d gone to her first house match back in her first year she’d loved the sport and hoped she’d be able to make the team someday, and now that she had, she couldn’t wait to see what it what be like! Arriving at her first practice she glanced around a bit nervously, knowing that almost everyone knew each other and had played together before, so she felt a bit out of place. But knowing that the only thing worrying would cause was for her to completely muck up the practice and barely score, so she shook her head a bit to get rid of those thoughts and instead she waved to the team as she walked over. "Hey everyone!" she added, before she listened to Lysander talk and then it was time to begin practice.

As soon as they started, Skylar kicked off into the air and raced to get the quaffle, but Sully got there first. He had been on the team for longer than her after all so she didn't let it get to her, and raced after him in an attempt to steal or intercept it. It took a while and she didn't seem to have much success, but she flew alongside the others anyway, watching out for any bludgers that came her way, and waiting for an open where she could intercept the quaffle.

Sully laughed at Ronald's response, giving him a thumbs up and waiting for him to throw the quaffle back out. He tried to keep an eye on the Team Gold chasers as well, noting Skylar was lurking around as well. He'd nearly forgotten they'd gotten another new team member this year along with Ronald and felt even cooler for having scored twice when it was 2 on 3.

When Ronald threw the quaffle back out into play, she noticed he threw it in Emma's direction, so seeing her chance, she immediately turned sharply in that direction and stretched out to catch the quaffle. Feeling it land in her grasp she couldn't help the happy laugh that escaped her, although she almost got a mini heart attack when she felt herself tilt a bit too far to the right and almost fall off the broom. Quickly righting herself, she let out a small breath of relief and wasted no time in heading to the other end of the pitch, where she knew Nikko would be waiting. She sped up a bit so she could attempt to outfly Sully and Chloë, and looked around herself to see whether Knox or Noel were nearby, but she didn't see them, so she continued straight to the hoops. As she approached, she steeled her nerves, and threw the quaffle towards the hoop on the left, which was the one closest to her, and let out a cheer as she saw it go in. "Yes!!" she said in excitement, happy to have scored at least one goal so far. "Go Team Gold!" she added with a grin, glancing at her teammates, before focusing back on the game.
