    Hufflepuffs Hurtle Towards the Goal!

    Hello, all!

    This is the thread where the Hufflepuff Quidditch team can post their drabbles! We've done a lot of planning, so now's the time to get going!

    So, team-mates, you know who you are, and I have one question:

    Are you ready for some Quidditch?

    OK, so you all received details and planning through the PMs we did, but i'll just quickly refresh you of our prompt:

    The prompt:

    A group of friends are sitting in the Main Hall of Hogwarts during breakfast when there is a commotion in the hallway. Going out to investigate, the friends find a notice posted on the door leading to the outside of the castle. It reads:

    Private professional Quidditch practices to be held on the Hogwarts Quidditch pitch for the next seven days. ONE DAY will be set aside for a group of seven lucky students to receive a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn first-hand from the professionals how to improve their game. The prize will be a match against the professional players played in front of the entire student body. If interested please see Professor McGonagall.
    We've done a lot of planning, you know what to do

    Just remember:

    -Help each other out – beta each other’s drabbles and give each other tips!
    -Keep the drabbles 100 words or less
    -Enjoy yourself and have fun!

    If you have any problems, questions or concerns, feel free to PM me

    Remember, it’s not about winning, but taking part and knowing we all worked together to make a smashing story!

    NOW LET’S GO GET THAT CUP!

    Go Badgers

    So, if anyone on the team wants to start us off, it's entirely up to you what happens first

    *Swings leg over brand new broom* Ok, lets go guys! Here's the first drabble I wrote Hope it's ok.

    Scorpius placed a kiss timidly on Rose’s cheek and she blushed as red as her hair. James Potter, her cousin, scowled in disapproval and turned back to his conversation with Fred Weasley. Albus Potter, his sister Lily and their other cousin Hugo Weasley were occupied with their own animated discussion. Lily and Hugo listened with awed eyes at how he was learning to transfigure his dove into a pure glass goblet in class.

    A loud excited shout turned their attention to the pushing and shoving in the hallway just off the Entrance Hall of Hogwarts.

    They all stood up, abandoning their breakfast, and fought their way to the front of the crowd, where they found a notice pinned to the door.

    Okay, so, in my drabble I came to a few issues. I think we need to establish what years our group are in. I tried to work my way around it this time, and here's what I came up with:

    James and Fred turned to each other and grinned.

    “This should be fun,” Fred said, looking quite large amongst the younger students crowded around him.

    James laughed as several first-years darted between their legs to get to the notice. Albus, Lily, and Hugo were standing near the back of the crowd, too timid to fight for the front. Fred and James ventured back to them.

    “What’s going on?”

    “Quidditch!”

    Lily looked puzzled, “But that happens every year. Why are we all so excited about it now?”

    Hugo and Albus looked back to Fred.

    My turn!

    “First of all, dear cousin,” Fred said, looking back at Lily, who looked confused. “Quidditch is exciting everyday, anytime – no matter if it’s played any year. Second, this is more then just a normal Quidditch match! SEVEN LUCKY STUDENTS will learn from professionals to improve! They could play against them in front of everyone!”

    “Oooh, that sounds fun! I want to do it!” Hugo said excitedly.

    “Well, Hugo, do you know seven people that would like to play with you?” Fred said, smirking.

    “Well….no…” Hugo said, a frown replacing his broad smile.

    “I will!” said Lily.

    Oh yeah! Thanks for pointing that out Emma. We'll have to be sure to remember who's younger and older...good thinking

    ‘I would love to do that,’ Rose said excitedly.

    ‘I’m already on the Quidditch team,’ said James smugly, ‘there’s no way I’m going to give up the chance to train with the professionals! Albus?’

    ‘I dunno…I’ve always wanted to be a Beater…’

    ‘Great!’ Lily cried. ‘Scorpy, will you join us? You’re such a great Quidditch player!’

    While Fred made retching noises behind Lily’s back, Scorpius nodded enthusiastically.

    They all looked expectantly at Fred, who raised his eyebrows.

    ‘Please!’ Rose begged him.

    ‘Oh fine…I suppose I’d make a good Beater too.’

    ‘Yay!’ The girls cried.

    ‘We’ve got a team!’ Hugo shouted.
