Captain Dill
Quidditch Sign Ups!
Fri Oct 7, 2016 14:55

When he and John finished eating, Clark headed up to Aladren. He might not have gotten Head Boy, but he was still Prefect and Quidditch Captain so he wanted to be present when Pye brought in the first years so he could wave when his name came up and people would know who to look for if they needed a prefect or had a Quidditch question. He also wanted to get back before Oliver so he could grab the sign up sheet he'd made over the summer from his bag and get that posted early.

The Aladren team sign ups were going to need all the exposure time they could get if he wanted a full list before try-outs. The team had graduated two players last year and the current rate of new players left them at a deficit. He optimistically hoped, though, that he'd get two names without needing to beg or twist arms. It had looked to him like Aladren had drawn in a sizable crop of first years, so hopefully there were a few players in there. The probability even looked pretty good that, if there were, maybe Arianna wouldn't be by herself again as the token girl on the team. Clark was kind of hoping that under his captaincy, Aladren Quidditch would lose its air of a pureblood boy club. Being led by a pair of half bloods (or whatever it was that John was, because, obviously, Clark had confirmed his best friend as the team's assistant captain when the coach nominated him), hopefully went a long way in that regard without them even needing to do anything.

The sign started out in the standard manner, though it was printed in white ink on black paper in hopes of standing out a bit more. It was also framed with bright blue paper that glimmered and even glowed a little bit, though Clark expected he would need to re-cast those charms a couple of times before he took the sheet down, to keep them at top vibrancy.

Clark hoped he hadn't sounded too desperate in his appeal for players, but he also didn't want to forfeit the year because a muggleborn wanted to wait until they knew how to fly before joining.

The sheet was otherwise compromised of a grid with column headings that read Name, Year, Desired Position(s). The first row was filled with Clark's information as an example.

He tacked it up on the bulletin board and sat down on one of the couches to wait for Professor Pye to arrive with his party of potential recruits.
