Nat Varth, Chaser
Beaters do have the toughest job
Fri Dec 30, 2016 10:53

As Nat heard a crack and the familiar whir of a bludger getting too close to comfort the quaffle seemed heavier in her hands. She needed to pass, just as soon as she got a little farther. Another crack of a beater’s bat and she looked around for her fellow chasers. There was Joe, ready and waiting and perfectly lined up at her side. The chaser that had been crowding her, who she couldn’t tell as she had only seen red, was gone. Passing the quaffle now would be easy.

With a practiced pass, Nat was able to send the ball towards Joe. Although it wasn’t time to get a good look at the field, she took account of one of the bludgers position. Deeming she and Joe were in no immediate danger, she focused once again on him, and the quaffle. The Crotalus hoops were far away though they were getting closer with every second. Her pass to Joe was just about to meet with him. If nothing untowards happened, she and Joe should be able to get the quaffle farther into Crotalus territory. Despite her wind stung cheeks, her scarf concealed a grin. She could feel the adrenaline rush warming her alongside the warming charms. Keeping close to Joe, the game charged on.

  • Picking on the little guys. Not very Teppish of you.Winston Pierce, Chaser, Fri Dec 30 09:06
    Winston was oddly nervous. He knew Teppenpaw was the least frightening of the teams they might have had to go up against for his first match but that almost made it worse. What if they lost to... more
    • Who wants to be Teppish, anyway? (Watch out, seeker!)Sébastien Évreux, Beater, Fri Dec 30 12:22
      Yet again, Sébastien Évreux had made the potential mistake of signing up to play Quidditch. However, his initial concerns of being passed over had proved unfounded, and once again he could say he was ... more
      • Watching out!Jake Manger, Seeker, Thu Jan 5 23:29
        “Welp, this is it,” Jake told his reflection in his bathroom mirror. “Your last game Maybe. Probably.” He gave a noncommittal squint and shrug to the idea. “It doesn’t have to be. Now, you’ve never... more
        • Got your back!Tobi Reinhardt, Beater, Sun Jan 8 14:48
          The moment he had miscalculated the time it would take to swing and hit that bludger, Tobi had known it would come back to haunt him. Luckily Jake was aware enough to pull up from where the young... more
          • You should watch yours...Arne Reinhardt, Beater, Sun Jan 8 15:35
            The showdown between Teppenpaw and Crotalus had been something Arne'd been waiting for since, well since he let Alistair Johnson of the Arizona Johnsons sign him up for Quidditch back in his first... more
    • Beaters do have the toughest job — Nat Varth, Chaser , Fri Dec 30 10:53
      • I'd say we're all working pretty hard.Makenzie Newell, Keeper, Mon Jan 2 17:55
        It was odd to wake up for a Quidditch match and not have silky black hair presented to her for braiding. Shino’s decision not to play Quidditch this year had thrown Makenzie for a loop - admittedly,... more
        • I will agree with you on that.Joe Umland, Chaser, Tue Jan 3 15:55
          There had been a small Crotalus (Joe didn’t know which was which) doing something that looked like trying to interfere with Nat’s ability to pass, but then there was the crack of a bat and the... more
          • I'm not doing much yet, honestly.Ginger Pierce, Wed Jan 4 12:49
            Ginger was glad the worst of the fallout over her Keeper get togethers had largely passed. She suspected Alistair still wasn't entirely pleased about it, but they had largely made up after the... more
            • Can I do nothing please?Jozua Sparks, Chaser, Fri Jan 6 14:03
              It had happened again. Fortunately, this time, Liac was perfectly healthy and Jozua would not be required to handle a bat in the Captain's place, but he was taking over for one of the chasers who... more
              • That suits me.Daniel Fintoc, Chaser, Fri Jan 6 18:27
                Quidditch provided a pedestal which made Daniel known in the school and he liked that about it. He liked the idea of people knowing his name and furthermore, these people (especially girls) admiring... more
                • Can I join him?Simon Mordue, Chaser, Sat Jan 7 10:46
                  Time did not seem to run normally on the Quidditch Pitch. To Simon, it had seemed to go very fast as he fled the Bludger, but then it had slowed to a crawl as he gathered himself, swallowing... more
