INFORMATION & SETTING
Rappaport's law strictly forbids any fraternization with non magical folk. Witches and Wizards have long been forbidden from any intermingling; no friendship, certainly no romance. Support for a repeal grows, though, and many fear North America's magical line dying out without fresh bloodlines. Mysterious disappearances tied to witch hunters have occurred throughout the magical community, however. So, which fear will win out? The fear of being wiped out or the fear of fading away?

October 3rd, 1964
Hello and welcome to our first Quidditch game of the year. As always, I'm your faithful commentator Ethel Lherman. It's looking like a beautiful day for quidditch, isn't it folks? Well...warm, enough at least. Hope our players don't mind a bit of fog or drizzle! Speaking of our players, here they come! Looks like Horned Serpent is making their entrance first; interesting to note it seems that the entire roster is made up of alternates today! I heard rumors of the diarrhea plague working its way through the snake house so maybe there's some truth to that? Or maybe it was a coup, who knows? Doesn't look like they're talking!

Anyway, folks, out they come! Up first we have keeper Gennadiya Abreu to the posts! Nice haircut Abreu, doesn't look like a dragon burned your hair off at all. Following her it looks like we have the chasers...Dion Brewster, Trudie Baker and Marcelle Parish! Second year Baker looks terribly small and frail beside her teammates but hopefully she'll prove her worth, right? Good look Baker! Here come the beaters; Jeanine Beltz and Eira Edison! Keep your bats at the ready my friends, this isn't going to be an easy match. At least we hope not! What fun is that for your fans? And finally we have our seeker, Gregory Stewart! You still haven't returned my owl, Greg!

Now, out comes Wampus! Rawr wildcats, rawr! Antigone Edwards makes her way to the goalposts. Nice broom, Edwards, where'd you get that? On her tail are chasers Tessa Giles, Martin Boyle and Lowell Stanwick. Stanwick memorably resigned from his position as starting chaser last year after taking three nasty bludgers to the head in one game. I guess you're feeling well enough for the reserves then? Hey Stanwick, what's 2+2? You still got that, right? Ha! Alright, our beaters, Gunnar Maloney and Bruce Gordon! Remarkably Maloney actually has a shirt on! Keep it up Maloney! And last but not least, we have seeker Annabeth Stewart! Hey, Annabeth, tell your brother to give me by owl back, alright?

The balls are being released...oh, there they go! The race for the quaffle is on! Little Baker falls behind quickly, but hey she's cute! Parish, Brewster and Giles are neck and neck! Oh, the Horned Serpent chasers are bottlenecking Giles in...and Brewster pulls ahead! He gets first contact! Oh, but Parish, that was impolite! Giles likely isn't going to take such an insulting gesture sitting down. Isn't it a bit early to intentionally get the team riled up? Watch out, Baker that bludger is co-oh! Nevermind, Edison has your back! The young ones have to stick together, right? Gordon and Beltz seem to be on top of the other bludger...Gordon got there first! Where you gonna shoot that, Gordy?!

-----------------------------
Welcome to the first ever Ilvermorny quidditch match! Brewster is in control of the quaffle, Gordon and Edison each have control of a bludger. Because we do not currently have any Horned Serpent players @Juni will be determining action lines for the house.

Anyone wishing to post as a spectator for this match may begin their own threads in the general Sports Fields forum.

There was little that Gunny loved more than flying. Whether it was quidditch or quodpot or just flying for the hell of it, as long as Gunny was in the air, he was happy. He'd been waiting for the first game of the years ince last years tournaments had drawn to a close and he couldn't have been more excited. This was going to be the year, he could feel it. This was going to be the year that Wampus took both the Quidditch and Quodpot cups. It would all start with this game, here today.

He'd gotten to the locker room early and was dressed for the game before most of the team had even arrived. He wasn't one who was often early for things - punctuality wasn't particularly important to him - but he would take any risk of being late for the game. Besides he was awake and sitting in his dorm only stayed interesting for about two minutes.

Thankfully the hours seemed to hurry by and before too long the whole team was there and ready and that obnoxious Lherman girl was introducing the players to the field. He reached to give Stanwick a quick clap on the shoulder, before they headed out, flashing Giles a grin. "Nobody gets broken this time, right?" Of course, that was his job as beater. He was going to do his damndest to keep the bludgers away from his team.

As the balls were released, one bludger ended up relatively close to Gordon, so Gunny made a snap decision to let him have it. Edison was closing in on the other and there was no way he was going to let them take out any of his teammates this early on in the game. As he shot across the field to intercept that bludger he tried to take everything in. The opposition had the quaffle. There was only one thing to do. A quick glance at Gordon told Gunny that his beating partner had the same idea. Sweet. The chasers it would be, then.

Tessa was excited. How could she not be? It was the first game of the season, of the year. She was always ready, always willing. She hoped that it would be a good game. She stood at the ready, glancing around at her team, giving them smiles, a determined look on her face. Quidditch was always something she missed over the summer holidays. "Broken is a relative word." She gave Gunny a quick wink.

As the game began she took off, watching the quaffle in the arms of their opposition. With a quick look around and a nod she knew what she had to do. So far this was an unsatisfactory start to the game.

October 3rd, 1964
Look at those Horned Serpent Chasers! For a team made up of alternates, they seem to be pretty in sync. What you’re seeing here is the Woollongong Shimmy! A coordinated and very professional move in which the three chasers move toward the scoring box in zigzag patterns in order to protect the quaffle from opponents! Look at little Baker go! Someone’s been practicing.

Wampus isn’t going to just sit back and wait for their turn, though! No, looks like they’re going in for the steal! Teamwork, baby, teamwork! Stanwick’s coming up on Parish’s right. Looks like a block...oh, bad luck Stanwick! Parish dips under and carries on right past our poor battered Wampus Chaser! Back in formation, Parish. Good job!

Looks like Boyle’s going in for the same on the other side of the formation. Come on guys, sending a big 4th year our to block a little second year hardly seems fair! Apparently a good move, though! Baker swerves to avoid crashing into Boyle, but he’s faster than she is. No matter where she goes he’s in her way. But come on, Boyle, do you really have to taunt her like that? Keep those ugly lips shut, yeah?

Stewart - Horned Serpent Stewart, I mean. Did you guys really both have to end up playing seeker? - seems to spot something? He’s taking off across the pitch. His sister, the opposing seeker, hasn’t seemed to...oh there she goes! Both seekers are now hurdling toward the ground. They’re going, they’re going...OH a bludger hit by Edison cuts off their path...looks like Maloney’s attempting a redirect but he didn’t get there in time! Bad luck, angry cat! The bludger has collided with...Sorry, Edwards, that’s gotta hurt. I heard that finger crack from here. At least it’s just a finger though, aye?

Okay, wait. What’s happening with the seekers? Did anyone get the snitch? No? Alright, folks, looks like the twins are both on the prowl. Maybe their mum only loves the one that catches the snitch? Hope not, but just in case I’m going to root for Annabeth. At least she doesn’t hold my owl hostage!

Gordon’s hit his bludger, it’s soaring toward the Horned Serpent Chasers! Beltz is going in for the redirect...he manages to get there for the hit but it seems he just didn’t quite have the velocity! Bad luck, Beltz...but worse luck Parish! It looks like Beltz managed to lessen the blow, but getting hit by an iron ball can’t feel nice, no matter how gentle the hit. Apparently that was just what Wampus needed because Parish has dropped the ball right into the arms of Giles, waiting below. GO GILES, GO!

-----------------------------
Giles is in control of the quaffle, Beltz and Maloney each have control of a bludger. Edwards has a very minor injury for the duration of the game.

Tessa smiled as the quaffle landed right in her arms. Already this was a good start to the match, she hoped they could keep this up. Her eyes quickly flicked to either side of her to make sure she was set to go forward, to see where her opposition was. She surged forward towards the hoops. Now was her chance.

"Fuck, fuck," Gunny snapped as the bludger went sailing past him unobstructed. Sorry Edwards. They managed to get one half decent shot in, but that was all they were going to get. He wouldn't mess up again. The goal was always to injure the other team without letting his own team get too messed up. He'd been too slow that time, but that was just bad luck. Bad timing. It was still early.

He shot off across the field, aiming to get that bludger into his control. Thankfully he got there first. "Go, Giles! Go!" He trusted that she'd go for the score - she as one of the few people he knew that was nearly as motivated to win as he was - and he'd be damned if he wasn't going to help her out where he could. Hit the keeper, clear the hoops.

Giles takes off with the quaffle looking way determined. Go, Giles! It’s a mess of chasers - everyone trying to block each other - but Brewster manages to pull away from the pack and she’s hot on Giles’ tail! Hey, Brewster, is the name calling really necessary? Don’t listen, Giles! I don’t think you look like a swamp rat! Ha!

Okay, Maloney’s bludger goes unobstructed. Poor Abreu, a hit to the stomach like that...well shake it off, shake it off! Giles is coming and it’ll be hard to block when you’re doubled in pain like that. Come on girl, show ‘em what you’re worth!

Beltz and Edison are going for a dopplebeat! Sweet move, man! It’s shaky; Beltz got in a much better hit than Edison and the imbalance seems to have caused a spin...and there’s Gordon with the redirect. Wow! That’s one heck of a hit, I’ll be damned - yes, Professor, I’ll watch my mouth, sorry - but Gordon successfully redirects the bludger toward Brewster! Brewster rolls to try to dodge, but no! Maybe the roll was a bad idea; bludger right to the head. Brewster must be seeing stars!

She’s focused though! Look at her go, almost like nothing happened, save for all that blood. And she gets the steal! I am so impressed. Hopefully she doesn’t get blinded by the bleeding. I mean, gosh! I was sure Giles had that!

[Brewster with the quaffle. She will have a somewhat moderate injury penalty for the duration of this game. Edison and Gordon with bludgers. The next due date will be Tuesday, March 14th at 10pm Eastern.]

Tessa was close, so close and it was all for nothing. It had all been going well, the bludger hit Abreau and that was exactly what she thought she needed. A chance, a perfect chance. And yet it all went wrong. She still wasn't quite sure what had happened but Brewster got the steal. Her jaw tightened and she made a sharp turn. "Stanwick! After her!" She shouted, pointing at Brewster, flying towards him and Parish.

It wasn't the best hit, unfortunately...well it wasn't a bad hit, but it ended up being a bit of a waste, didn't it? Giles failed her end of the bargain and failed to get to the scoring box. He ground his teeth in frustration, darting off to find a bludger to go after. It looked like Gordon was about to get a bludger. He didn't usually love coordinated moves as a beater because it left one bludger unobstructed, but Gordon caught his eye and he nodded. If that's what he wanted to do, Gunny would go for it. The needed a score. They needed to start the season off with a bang.

Back into Hawkshead formation for the Snake Chasers! Doesn’t look quite so well formed this time if you ask me, but what do I know! I talk, I don’t play! Maybe that’s the only move they’ve practiced? Anyway, they do look decent don’t they? Just a little bit too tight. Give Brewster some room to breath, kids!

Boyle must be really fond of Baker! Hasn’t seemed to leave her side this whole game. No point in playing if you’re not making friends, right Boyle? I would say that’s wrong actually! The battlefield is no place to make friends. But hey, why fix what’s not broken, right? Boyle’s continued harassment of little Baker continues to pay off! She has proven to be the broken wing of the hawk; her fellow chasers have left her behind as she struggles to get past her opponent. Giles seems to be going for the block on Parish, but Parish isn’t having it! She soars right on past the Wampus chaser.

EVERYBODY LOOK ALIVE! Stewart - the owl stealing Stewart, I mean - has spotted something again! Don’t let your bastard brother beat you Annabeth! SORRY, PROFESSOR! Both Seekers are soaring across the field...they’re headed...they’re headed RIGHT TOWARD ME. CRAP. AHHH! ---The pitch fills with the sound of disgruntled grumbling for several seconds before the seekers take a sharp turn upward---

Sorry folks, sorry! Whatever the twins were chasing seems to be gone. Let me...what’s...ah, okay! Maloney and Gordon are coming together...yes, they’re ripping off the move we just saw from Horned Serpent and going for a dopplebeat! How often do we see these two being team players, eh? Good on ya, boys! Oh and what. A. Hit! I’m da-oh my gosh! Gordon was so busy hitting his bludger that he didn’t notice the one Edison sent from behind! Are you alright, Gordon? He’s okay, he’s okay!

The bludger sent from the Wampus pair is speeding toward the two remaining chasers in the Hawkshead, presumably aiming for Brewster! Beltz darts in to protect them but the distance...I don’t think she can make it. No! The bludger smashes into Parish, did you all hear that? Oh I’m going to be sick! Elbows should not bend like that! And I told the formation was too tight! Parish collides with Brewster, knocking the quaffle from her hands. Stanwick swoops in to take advantage...and it’s back in Wampus possession!

-----------------------------
[Stanwick with the quaffle. Maloney and Gordon with Beaters. Parish has a broken elbow and will suffer a moderately severe injury modification for the duration of the game. The next deadline is Friday, March 17th at 10pm Eastern.]

Drat. Things definitely weren't going their way right now. Until somehow their beaters worked together and Tessa was really proud of them. It helped them. Tessa didn't even flinch when Parish got hit and she watched as the events unfolded, glad to not be so close to Parish when it happened. And then Stanwick got the quaffle and a slight victory smile played on Tessa's lips. Good, it was back in their domain. Tessa sent a grin towards Maloney and Gordon, a good job sort of smile, before flying off to make sure Brewster wasn't going to bother anyone.

Gunny let out a celebratory woop, glad that the coordinated move had paid off. Perhaps he should have shown Parish some sympathy or concern, but he didn't have it in him. No one signed on for quidditch without knowing there was a possibility of getting hurt. Besides, all the injuries would be quickly taken care of when the match was over. With a quick nod of acknowledgement to Giles, he took off again to get another bludger. This could be a turning point for them. This could be when they made the game go in their favor. "Come on Stanwick," he called. He had this.
