Patrick was stoked that he had made it on the Quidditch team in his first year, as a Chaser no less. Sending an owl home to his parents telling them this would make them, and his brothers, proud. If they had enough money, they definitely would have come for his first match. It wasn't really a big deal to Pat, but to his parents, being on a university team meant the big leagues in the future. Sometimes they were quite the idealists.

Elly had called a practice, and Pat was excited for the first one. He was going to be getting back into action after a whole year of no Quidditch. He'd really have to get back into shape. Since they tryouts, he'd been pumping iron like no other to make his arms stronger as well as his wrists, and now he'd get the opportunity to practice his move.

Patrick smiled at his other teammates as he entered the pitch and walked over to where the others were standing around Elly. He was holding his old broom which wasn't the fastest in the world, and his jet-black hair looked wind-swept as always. The last time he'd really combed it was two years ago for his job interview. That was a long time ago.

Elly pointed out the new jerseys, and Pat felt himself warm with excitement and pride for his school. This was exciting, being on a team again. Elly told them where to go, so he looked at the familiar faces. He'd met most of them (if not all) of his teammates at Elly's birthday party and at other events, so he felt comfortable with his surroundings now. "So," he said to them, "shall we get to it?" He grinned at the Keeper, Hyana, and mounted his broom. They'd met briefly at Elly's party, but he was very good with names. Something he'd picked up working job after job and meeting new people constantly.

  • Quidditch Practise!Elly Eriksson, Sun Mar 6 14:01
    The sort of squeaking sound that Elly had made having discovered she'd been named Quidditch captain was really not appropriate for her age. A six year old might just about have been able to get away... more
    • Let's get this started! (Calix)Liana Chapman, Mon Mar 7 00:14
      The day of their first Quidditch practice, Liana had woken up before sunrise, too excited to sleep. A part of her still couldn't really believe that she had made the team again this year. Soon... more
      • Seeking a hit, and hitting a seeker.Calix Panos, Wed Mar 9 14:16
        It wasn't so much that the brothers were on good terms but rather they had finally found a use for each other. Calix drained the last vestiges of the power potion, feeling himself relax, and the... more
        • She nodded in agreement, somehow unsurprised by his reply but still relieved. While plans were always a good idea, they were, in her experience, never followed. It was just a fact of life. Planning... more
          • Done. Now can we go after the seeker?Calix, Tue Mar 15 18:36
            His eyes stayed focused on the bludger speeding away from him, but he couldn't help the small grin as Liana flew over him, and a ridiculous image of rainbow flashed across his mind. She was at a... more
            • Go ahead, I'm right hereElly, Wed Mar 16 16:45
              Everyone was taking to the skies for their first team practise together. Admittedly most of the team had worked together before, but this was their first practise with this particular line-up. Elly... more
              • Seeking a beating, apparently.Liana, Fri Mar 18 19:14
                Quidditch games were always so loud and crazy in comparison to team practices. It honestly felt a bit weird for her to look at Calix, see he was talking, and actually be able to hear him as well. She ... more
                • I'd like to oblige.Calix, Sun Mar 20 14:49
                  As he'd predicted, Elly ducked the bludger and the ball continued to head toward Liana. He raised an auburn brow when she decided to drop on top of the bludger while hitting it. She obviously hadn't... more
                  • Oblige away!Liana, Mon Mar 21 07:42
                    Slowing down as she approached him, she made sure to leave Calix plenty of space as he leaned to hit the bludger. Liana grinned as she watched him knock it straight at Elly. He had really good aim,... more
                    • And now you can oblige me.Calix, Mon Mar 21 23:18
                      He watched her hit the bludger back towards Elly, approving of her method even if it hadn't hit. Funny how each of them could use their own vastly different heights to their advantage. He leaned... more
    • Practice makes perfect... but we already are!Gabriel Errant, Sun Mar 6 15:48
      His fist bumped the alarm clock before the loud obnoxious DING DING DING could actually wake him up. Then Tempest started rattling in his cage, hooting out of frustration to be let out like Gabriel... more
      • I am perfectHector, Wed Mar 9 22:57
        It was time for Quidditch practice, and the blonde was excited about it. Everything to do with his favorite sport excited him, especially since the Coach was a well-known Quidditch player. He... more
        • Pat didn't know what he thought of a drop pass, since he'd been one of the Chasers back in high school that swooped in and grabbed it mid-pass (it was rather an open shot), but he caught it anyway... more
          • Yes, it was.Hyana Kamiya, Mon Mar 14 13:25
            Hyana was extremely excited for Quidditch practices from now on. Honestly, she just felt better about it than she did last year. Elly was going to be captain, and she thought her friend was great for ... more
            • Gabriel stuck his tongue out at Hyana, grinning as he sped forward to catch her pass. "Sheer luck." He teased, bumping the ball in his hand and spinning it on his index finger, the Quaffle wobbling a ... more
              • Then don't make themHector, Fri Mar 18 16:58
                OOC: I took the liberty to god-mod (SORRY! SORRY!) but itís to make the thread go faster. Gabriel wanted Hector to take the shot. Sorry again. Hector was hovering on his broom watching the scene... more
                • Good idea. Now the question is: how?Pat, Sat Mar 19 20:43
                  OOC: Actually, he wanted to have Patrick make the shot with his "powerful arm," but it's all good! Pat was disappointed that his shot hadn't made it, really disappointed, actually, but he'd try and... more
