Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Welcome to the Quidditch Arena!

Less than 20 minutes away from first match and teams are getting nervous. Supporters are on their places, all cheering for their teammates.

Madam Hooch is walking to the center of the field, carrying the ball case and a whistle.


All seems set.

Good Luck Slytherin. Good Luck Gryffindor. Good Luck Hufflepuff. Good luck Ravenclaw.


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Teams are all aligned and waiting for the beginning of the game!

The Golden Snitch has been released… it circles both Seekers before disappearing!

Buldgers are also on.


Madam Hooch launches the quaffle in the air and blows the whistler!!!


The Game is ON!!!!

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Gryffindor Chasers are unstoppable . They fly, they dodge, they aim…

AND SCOOOOOOOOOORE!


10 points to Gryffindor


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Shannon may have dodged but the bludger connected with her boom making her spin towards the ground.


She'll be sitting next attack out.


message 15: by Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ (last edited May 30, 2018 07:54AM) (new)

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Even with chaser falling towards the ground, Gryffindor is still going strong. One brave chaser has a quaffle and is flying toward the goal posts.

Is Slytherin still sleeping?


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments There is still chance for Shannon! Gryffindor beater is doing her best to help out

Will she be caught in time?!


message 17: by Jammin Jenny (new)

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4149 comments Go Slytherin! Break that Quaffle! Beat that Chaser!


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Wow! Witches and wizards and everyone else! It looks like our second match has finally started!
Hufflepuff showed they really are good finders and got to the quaffle first and attack on the posts in on the way!

Waiting now for Ravenclaw to respond....


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw game is getting interesting. Kate in blue just sent a bludger toward unsuspecting Danielle and in blur of yellow Trinia is rushing to intercept it before it reaches her teammate.

Will Danielle plummet toward a ground? Or will Trinia hit that bludger just in time? Stay tuned....


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments On scarlet&green front Jenny reached Shannon seconds before she hit a ground.
Shannon is looking for a new broom to resume a match, so if anyone in the stands has one to lend, please report to Madam Hooch


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Ravenclaw's keeper noticed chasers flying toward her and she is ready for them.

Who will be better in this round?...


message 22: by Tati (new)

Tati | 1173 comments I keep remembering the book scenes where McGonagall tried to keep Lee impartial and well behaved:

‘So – after that obvious and disgusting bit of cheating –’
‘Jordan!’ growled Professor McGonagall.
‘I mean, after that open and revolting foul –’
‘Jordan, I’m warning you –’


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments I do wonder will we (as in mods posting as Lee) be able to stay impartial or will you be able to guess which house 'Lee' belongs to. :)

Then you both be very... oh so very wrong.....

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4149 comments Hmm...maybe Slytherin because she thought we were asleep LOL

Would it be possible to lend a broom or not?


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments And Ravenclaw beater was faster and her aim was true! Danielle is knocked off the broom.

But don't worry fans! Even if Madam Pomfrey isn't here because she has her hands (and hospital) full of puffed up indigo students, our very own Professor Lockhart offered his services and he's going to use all best healing spells you can read more about in his bestselling books. And that is all advertisement Professor you'll get for 10 galleons. And no, I don't want signed picture instead.


On another note, my great best friends George and Fred *waves to them* has developed great new chewing gum. They say it tastes just like blueberries. And of course they are working on other tastes as we speak. If you want them, just find twins in this crowd and for 16,99 sickels you can be first to taste.

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Looks like Slytherin's Louise managed to knock quaffle from Griffyndor's chasers! I told you ladies not to use that new hand cream before the game!

Quaffle is now free falling. Who'll get to it first?!

You mean Griffyndor?


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments OMG! Is it possible?! Yes it is! Just listen to that crowd! I can't hear my own thoughts from fans yelling and screaming!
If you have problem seeing the field (for example if Hagrid is standing (or sitting) right in front of you), Slytherin chasers just made their appearance on their shiny new brooms.

They are zooming over the field so fast that I can't even see what brooms are their flying on! If anyone out there has that information, share it with us. Fans have a right to know important things like that.

Slytherin chasers have a quaffle...


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Slytherin's Team Alignment:

Chaser 1 - Jen, Team Tom Riddle
Chaser 2 - Karen Michelle, Team Draco Malfoy
Chaser 3 - V Nerd, Team Severus Snape

Keeper - Louise, Team Bellatrix Lestrange

Beater 1 - Natalie, Team Draco Malfoy
Beater 2 - Stacie, Team Severus Snape

Seeker - Jammin Jenny, Team Draco Malfoy


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments After brief strategy conference, Slytherin chasers with quaffle in their hands are ready to attack Gryffindor posts and maybe score their first points in the game


message 37: by Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ (last edited May 31, 2018 07:51AM) (new)

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments On another field, Hufflepuffs are getting close to the goal posts. Zooming left and right they have totally confused Ravenclaw keeper and is it possible....


GOOOOAAAAAAL

10 points Hufflepuff



But it's not over! They caught quaffle again and are getting ready for new attack on the posts!



Sadly with Danielle knocked off her broom, Hufflepuffs need to find another strategy to get that quaffle through the hoops.


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Gryffindor beater hit a bludger perfectly and now it's on it's way to Karen Michelle.

Will Karen Michelle be first victim patient of Professor Lockhart's healing capabilities?
I may be impartial, but come on Slytherin, you don't want to do that even to your worst enemy! Sorry, Professor Lockhart! I didn't mean to say you don't know how to heal. I just don't want you to get grass stains on your new cape! Yes, Professor Lockhart, I'll be in your chambers at 6pm for my detention.
*mutters*stupid mouse king


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Slytherin's Natalie is rushing to kick that bludger away from her teammate. Or at least to catch before she hits the ground


message 40: by Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ (last edited May 31, 2018 08:37AM) (new)

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Ravenclaw's beater is getting ready to stop next Hufflepuff attack with perfectly aimed bludger in direction of Katie


It looks to me that players with names starting with K are having really bad day today....


message 41: by Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ (last edited May 31, 2018 07:14AM) (new)

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Thank you Slytherin! Karen Michelle is safe! Beater Natalie successfully removed Professor Lock bludger threat from green chaser.

Bludger is currently roaming free on the field looking for it's next victim. Be careful players!

Yeah, sorry! And thanks ☺
It's hard to keep track of two games in the same time.
I keep zooming from field to filed that at the moment I have no idea what teams I'm looking at (with all of you flying so fast)

Commentary is hilarious! :-D


message 44: by Stacie (new)

Stacie (thesebooksaremyfriends) | 4839 comments Just don't fall and you'll be alright.

Chaser 3 - Keli, Team Moaning Myrtle

Keeper - Kirsten, Team Filius Flitwick

Beater 1 - Kate, Team Filius Flitwick

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments Ravenclaw gets a quaffle and they are getting ready to attack Hufflepuffs posts. Will yellow keeper be ready in time?


Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments And game is on! With quaffle in their hands, Nicole, Emily and Keli are zooming around the field trying to confuse Hufflepuff's players. Keeper especially.

Will they be fast enough?

Keeper of the Books ★ NBRC ★ | 62 comments The seekers are flying around searching for that Golden Snitch!
