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 year. It was a weird feeling, he thought to himself as he dressed for the match that morning and headed to breakfast with Laila Kennedy in her ridiculous Spirit Club outfit, to have what you wanted put in front of you only to realize that it wasn't what you wanted at all.

The same eerie feeling stayed with Arne as Professor Skies started the match and Arne watched as his cousin and brother got to both Bludgers before he or Sébastien Évreux could. But the rage and the feeling of not being good enough that he expected to rise up didn't. And instead concern flickered through Arne as he noticed that both his relatives were off their game. There was something weird going on that day, that was for sure. He let Sébastien get in the first hit, bouncing Tobi's bludger towards the Teppenpaw Seeker and worried over his brother's shoulder as Tobi went to hit it back as though playing a game of tennis since he'd seen Tobi rubbing it earlier.

As the Bludgers whizzed around, however, Arne knew that he couldn't afford to spend so much time deliberating over the state of his brother's arm. There would be more time to worry about that later. Tobi was sensible enough and if he needed an out, he would ask for one. Teppenpaw had a reserve, after all. And besides, worrying was neither a Crotalus nor an Arne trait and keeping himself distracted wouldn't allow for full concentration on the match at hand and that was what was important.

Quidditch was something that Arne really cared about. In general his rather aloof attitude towards classes, friends, and pretty much everything else that went on at Sonora probably meant that many people didn't think there was anything that could make Arne Reinhardt care, but that's where they would be wrong. In reality there were three things that he cared about: metal charming, Quidditch, and his family. Even when they got on his nerves by being better than him at everything like Tobi was often wont to do. But, since there was long lived animosity between the Crotalus Captain and the family of Reinharts, and Alistair had recently seemed to take Daniel Fintoc under his wing, Arne knew he would have to match his words to his actions.

He had long been a devoted member of the Crotalus team. Maybe he never voiced his passion for the game to anyone, even to himself, but his actions had always reflected someone who cared deeply whether they won or lost. Part of this had been fueled by a desire to prove that for once he was as good or even better than Tobi at something, but over the years he had found that it was really his passion. It had been difficult to show at first back when he played as a reserve on Teppalus but after having split apart into two teams he felt like he'd really shown his drive.

His sharp eyes caught the metal bludger that one of the new Crotalus chasers had dodged and he swung his arm back, giving a decent SMACK! towards the Teppenpaw yellow robes which were tailing Daniel and Simon, the two Crotali players who had intercepted the Quaffle and were now flying towards Teppenpaw territory with probably hopes to score.

OOC: Bludger clarification, Arne hit the bludger Liac had aimed towards the Crotalus Chasers towards the Teppenpaw Chasers.

    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
