Geez, Sammy, you're getting old

Ben watched the Pecari bulletin board eagerly for the Quidditch Sign-Up Sheet. It didn't take long for Sammy to get it up, so he grinned cheerfully when he spotted it and hurried to add his name to the list.

Ben Pierce, 5th Year, Beater

He stood back, double checked that he'd gotten his year correct (writing '4th year' was still a habit he was in the process of breaking) then noticed the year next to Sammy's. Whoa. She was a seventh year now. Well, obviously, she was a seventh year, he chided himself, she got Head Girl this year. But somehow it was different, seeing it in writing. He felt a momentary pang of loss, knowing that this time next year, his Senior Beater Partner would no longer be in the school.

Then he reminded himself that he had a whole school year ahead of him to practice with her, and there would be plenty of time to worry about her leaving once it was closer to when that was actually going to happen. He pushed away the melancholy feeling and forced back an optimistic cheer that maybe this year they’d be able to have a full season of Quidditch again.

        She knew she was supposed to feel at home in the Pecari common room, but Tatiana could not quite make herself feel that way about the place. It was comfortable enough, she supposed, but it did not... more

          She'd drawn in the girl. And, more interestingly, she had said yes. Well, she had said 'yes,' to thinking about it, but it was surely just a few short steps from there to putting her name down. The... more
          • Yes, but what is 'it'?Tatiana, Wed Sep 6 14:44
            Cap-tan. That was it. Tatiana knew that word but hadn’t been able to think of it in a timely manner. She nodded to let Assistant Captain know she understood and would try to remember the right word... more

                Tatiana blinked when Ingrid mentioned the village, then smiled in delight. “Yes, yes,” she said excitedly, putting her hands together and beaming at the older girl. “We say – Volshebnaya Derevnya.... more

                  "We learned about it I'm geography lessons growing up. I always thought it sounded interesting. I'd really like to travel more after I graduate," she explained when Tatiana asked whether she knew the ... more

                    It struck Tatiana as slightly strange to consider her village as part of someone’s geography lesson. Of course, it was a notable location, with what she had been taught was an unusually high... more
