Substitute Prof. Isis Carter
Championship Game: Aladren vs. Crotalus!
Fri Jan 20, 2017 15:19

Isis sighed. She had been so happy when the school had acquired a Quidditch coach, but the poor woman’s health was just not cooperating with the game schedule. Or just… cooperating, it seemed, as Isis was informed that Juliet Grase was now on sick leave. Hopefully she would return soon, not only for the sake of her recovery from whatever it was that plagued her, but also for the sake of Sonora’s Quidditch program.

Isis was not the only option to substitute coach a Quidditch match - she hadn’t had to do either of the two previously this term - but she was a fairly logical choice for it as long as she had no major schedule conflicts. Which she usually didn’t, since she hardly ever left the school. She was leaving a little more lately, checking on her mother, but even that was quick.

She arrived on the pitch this morning to check the weather, and she sighed again at her findings. Temperature wise, it wasn’t too bad: maybe a little chillier than the finals usually were, but not too bad. But the wind was angry, and a cold rain fell hard. It was a familiar phenomenon to her, like April or May in Detroit, the gloomy springs of which she could never quite forget. The coolness would not require heating charms, but she did send notice to both captains that they were going to want drying spells.

Aladren and Crotalus had both worked very hard to get this far. While Isis was not a fan of the sport by any means, their determination was nonetheless remarkable. She called their captains forward to shake hands. “Let’s have a good, clean game, gentlemen,” she said, glancing between Clark Dill and Alistair Johnson. Then she freed the Bludgers and the Snitch and grabbed the Quaffle. Isis sent the red orb ascending as the shrill whistle bounced off all obstacles, and the game was under way, leaving her to watch carefully and pray that nobody got hurt.

OOC: Congrats on getting this far! Have a good game, guys. Just make sure you follow the rules, and please make your name the appropriate color. You have exactly two weeks. Have fun, and don’t kill each other too much!

    • You were warned.Capt. Ali Johnson, Seeker, Sun Feb 12 10:16
      Alistair didn’t allow his mind to dwell on the fact that he’d been tricked by Dill and he continued his search for the golden snitch. The elements were certainly against him finding it but he... more
    • In it to win it.Daniel Fintoc, Chaser , Sun Jan 29 06:37
      Daniel had been far happier than he could’ve imagined when they actually won their last game. It had felt like Crotalus were the underdogs for a long time now, always struggling to make the numbers,... more
      • You can say that again.Arne Reinhardt, Beater, Wed Feb 1 16:45
        Spirit Club consisted of a few things which Arne thought was a bit silly but there were a few aspects of it which he could appreciate the first being the parties they threw and the second being the... more

          Before the first match, Amelia had been bouncing with enthusiasm even though she had known she was not going to play. Before the second match, she was frozen with terror because she had been informed ... more

            Louis shook his head as released his hair from his towel before running a hand through it to make sure it looked messy but artistic. He didn’t just let it lie any old way! In nothing but his boxers,... more
            • I enjoyed it very much.Simon Mordue, Chaser, Fri Feb 3 12:08
              Simon saw the rain on the windows as soon as he’d woken up, but for a while, he had managed to mostly deny its reality. Maybe, he had thought, it had just been an illusion on their windows; he’d... more
              • So did I!Winston Pierce, Chaser, Fri Feb 3 13:53
                Winston saw the rain on his window that morning and decided, in spite of previous experience to the contrary, that this was Arizona, and a dessert, so it would surely stop before the game began. He... more
                • Let's enjoy this one, lads.Daniel Fintoc, Chaser, Fri Feb 3 14:39
                  Daniel was pleased when his pass landed safely in Crotalus hands but he then winced as Simon got hit by a bludger. Arne had just saved him from the same harassment and could hardly be everywhere at... more
                  • A very big step would be needed Lena, Keeper , Fri Feb 3 15:55
                    Things were not looking good so far as chasing was concerned. Crotalus started with possesion, which Lena wasn’t too worried about. She had an eye on the bright red robes of the opposing team... more
          • Determined to not be phased Lena W., Keeper , Thu Feb 2 14:17
            Lena was nervous. There was no other word for it. Playing Quidditch for the Aladren team had been more exciting and enjoyable than she had thought it could be third year when she had given the sport... more
    • Last time aroundClark Dill, Seeker, Tue Jan 24 21:12
      Clark did not normally get nervous before Quidditch games these days. Even last time, coming back for potentially his final game after his first lost, and going against the same seeker who had beaten ... more
      • It won't be like old times.Capt. Ali Johnson, Seeker, Sun Jan 29 05:57
        Winning had felt amazing. It had meant a lot to the whole team, after years (for some of the players at least) of hard work, to finally get that reward they’d been striving for. But it had also felt... more
        • All you targets look pretty much the same to me.John Umland, Beater, Wed Feb 1 15:12
          Toronto was not, in the grand scheme of things, a place John had ever thought about much. His maternal grandparents lived there, but he rarely saw them. His mom was from there, but had completed her... more
          • Yeah, well your face doesn't look pretty to meSébastien Évreux, Beater, Thu Feb 2 15:00
            For the first time since Sébastien had started playing Quidditch – and apparently also longer than that – Crotalus had made it to the final. Sébastien hadn’t yet decided if this was a good thing. On... more
            • I'm feeling feintCaptain Clark Dill, Seeker, Fri Feb 3 12:00
              Clark saw that Alistair was keeping some distance from him for now. Good. That was the way he liked it. Granted, he had a good broom now, so it wasn't a matter of needing a head start now, though... more
              • I'm feeling slightly distracted.John Umland, Beater, Fri Feb 3 12:42
                John supposed it meant he was getting a little cocky, but he was mildly surprised when the little Crotalus Beater, the one who was not a Reinhardt, managed to intercept the Bludger and send it back... more
                • No, this is being distracted.Capt. Ali Johnson, Seeker, Fri Feb 3 13:39
                  The downside of being such a committed coach for the Crotalus team was that, when it came to matches, Alistair found it could be difficult to pay the right attention to the other players’... more
                  • And this is, hopefully, being distractingSébastien Évreux, Beater, Fri Feb 3 15:15
                    Sébastien was disappointed when Clark dived, missing his carefully aimed bludger. Having moving targets really didn’t making beating easier! Still, at least it meant Dill had needed to change... more
                    • Out of time but posting anywayClark Dill, Fri Feb 3 15:32
                      Upon looking around, Clark smiled at what he found - Alistair was below the altitude of the Chasers which meant he had followed, at least for a little while, and the bludger was heading his way.... more
