Always in!
Wed Aug 30, 2017 20:30

Upon hearing the news of her brother's appointment, she had congratulated him heartily, then followed with a half-joking threat to beat his team to the ground. They didn't play the same position, luckily, so Lily didn't bother saying anything more. She had learnt to lose gracefully after missing the Snitch last year - or was it two years ago now? - and not hearing the end of it from her annoying older brother for the entire winter season. Though she was happy for Jack, she also had a grudge.

Pecari had to win this year.

Lily felt more prepared for this new school year. Last year had been difficult, transitioning into an unfamiliar position and intermediate classes on top of that. Jack had tutored her a bit over the summer, though Lily hadn't been the best pupil, and the rest of her time she'd spent watching films and improving her hand-eye coordination and training her eyes to spot small objects from far away. She couldn't wait to get back on the pitch with real teams.

When the signup sheet went up, she quickly signed her name. It was good to see a first year showing interest. Pecari needed to win this year and that was not going to happen without a full team.

Lily Spencer, 4th year, Seeker

      It was hard to miss Sammy's notice, which Ingrid felt meant it was doing its job. She didn't understand all the comparisons their captain was making but it seemed to have already drawn in one first... more

        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

                    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

      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... more
