Sammy M, purple beater
Don't get me started.

As one might imagine, Sammy Meeks was not fond of the cancellation of Quidditch. Sports Club was nice, but there just wasn’t enough for her to do without the formal league. She was grateful, at least, that some pickup games were scheduled, although she was finally feeling like she was in the swing of being Assistant Captain, and with her planned Captaincy just a year away now, she certainly hoped the formal league was reinstated soon. She had worked too hard for too long to lose that recognition now.

Still, in the meantime, it was nice just to have an opportunity to play. Above all else, it was about the game and how awesome it was. Sammy ended up playing for purple today, which in and of itself was fine. She glanced around to see who was on what team and was strategically pleased to see she had Ginger Pierce, who was objectively the most practiced Keeper. Ben was on green, though, she was unfortunate. She’d gotten used to playing with him and felt that they made a solid team. Ah well. Time to go hardcore and use that familiarity him.

The sixth year kicked off fiercely into the sky, intentionally getting a bit higher up than the Chaser action so she could keep an eye on it. It wasn’t terrifically exciting, at least so far, but she did notice Ben deflect a Bludger from a young Chaser boy she was pretty sure usually played or Crotalus. Sammy smiled. Time to run drills.

She caught up to the Bludger, although not in time to redirect it from Ingrid’s path. (Fortunately she managed to avoid it.) Sammy just got a hold of it after it went passed. She decided to send it back at that Chaser - Simon something, maybe? - just to see what Ben did with it. She figured either way would be good for her, because if he failed then it was convenient for the game, and if he succeeded she could be all proud and claim she taught him everything. A real win-win.

          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
