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 was particularly sensitive to it because she was the one calling the shots, but also Patrick was there, and as someone she hadn't known a few weeks ago but had seen a great deal since, she was aware of his presence on the pitch. She was also hopeful that Liana and Calix would work well together, and this first exercise would help her find out.

Casting the requisite charm on herself - if she did get hit by a Bludger she'd rather not be bruised or knocked off her broom during practise - Elly kicked off from the ground and followed her Beaters into the sky. She started to cricle - essentially they could fly wherever they liked on the pitch but she would stay away from where the Chasers and Hyana were currently practising, because they wouldn't be expecting a Bludger, and the potential damage wasn't worth thinking about. Nope, she would stay well away from the other players. Of course this would make her an easier tagert for her Beaters, but then she could keep her eyes on them rather than looking for a Snitch. In effect they were all at equal advantage and disadvantage.

After a brief couple of circuits, Elly heard the first crack of a bat on a Bludger. She sought it out, and saw Liana and Calix communicating. Great, they were starting to work together - this could only mean good things for their team. A second crack and Elly anticipated the Bludger coming towards her. She ducked out ofits way and dropped some height, and then span off to the right. She'd been trained as a Seeker - she could move fast when she needed to.

(OOC - for the purpose of this practise feel free to write whether or not your Bludgers hit the target, to save you guys from having to wait for me to reply each time.)

  • 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

      • 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
              • I'd hardly consider that an obligation.Liana, Thu Mar 24 22:25
                Her smile widened slightly at his reply, she hadnít been expecting it and it was almost a bit of a relief to know he hadnít forgotten. She was about to answer him but the conflicting emotions that... more
