Simon the Green Chaser
Let's get it together, folks.
Sun Jun 11, 2017 11:21

Simon heard the crack of bats on Bludgers and started to pull away, but calmed down slightly when he realized that the person hitting the Bludger wearing a shirt the same color as his own. Slightly. The Bludger seemed to be aimed at a Purple who had started to get too close to the Quaffle for comfort, so something going terribly wrong and Simon getting hit instead of the presumably intended target was a possibility.

Luckily, however, it was a possibility that did not become an actuality. He didn’t see if the Purple got hit or not, but he did quickly establish that he had not been hit, that Winston had the ball, and that Winston did not seem to have been hit, either. With unfamiliar people around, people Simon didn’t know they could really trust, that was all Simon required to decide the game was going well so far. It was strange, this working together with people he didn’t know and hadn’t had many practices to get used to working with, but maybe it would go all right.

The Purple Keeper was someone he didn’t know personally, but did recognize as one of the Teppenpaws. She was one of the Pierces who…were not part of society, he thought, and he was so absorbed with the horrifying image of Uncle Nicky’s mad decision to leave the family turning into multiple branches of Mordues who the rest of them had to go to school with and share a name with that he almost missed the return pass Winston sent his way as they drew up to the goals. He fumbled it, and while he didn’t drop it, he was certain his fumbling blew any advantage of surprise they might have had.

Silently heaping abuse on himself, Uncle Nicky, the various bits of the family Pierce, and life in general, Simon turned sharply toward the right and threw the Quaffle as hard as he could. If it worked, it would be by a matter of seconds, he thought, but sometimes…sometimes that was enough.

        Ginger saw them coming, a pair of Chasers in green shirts. Second years, she thought. First one had the Quaffle, then the other. Both from Crotalus unless she was very much mistaken, which meant they ... more

                Ben felt a frisson of worry when Ingrid didn't run from his bludger as fast as he thought she should have, but she did manage to dodge clear and he let out a quiet sigh of relief. He'd been playing... more

                  Simon was disappointed when Miss Pierce saved the Quaffle, but not entirely surprised. It had not been the best shot he’d ever taken and he was not exactly the most talented shot in the entire school ... more
