    Toasters Take to the Air!

    Alright, Toasters, the thread is up! And I shall edit soon with our first drabble!

    Here is our prompt for a refresher!
    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.
    More basic plot information shall be posted later...

    Watch out, Mike!

    Oliver stood on his tiptoes, trying to peer over the heads of the taller students that were all huddled around the announcement.

    'Come on, come on!' he muttered under his breath, elbowing past a Ravenclaw girl talking animatedly to some Hufflepuff guy. The path ahead of him was clear. If only he could get there-

    A huge Slytherin stepped right in front of him. Oliver slammed into his back, but he doubt that the mammoth even felt it. Scowling, he took a step around the jerk and then felt a hand on his shoulder. Charlie Weasley spoke.

    'Congrats, Wood.'
    100 on the spot!

    I figured we'd better start writing.

    Shen Chang had no time to feel happy or privileged as he made his way from the throng gathered at the notice board. He had made the team. He knew he would. Now came the hard bit – proving that he was worth it.

    He passed Charlie Weasley and Oliver Wood, probably congratulating each other on their fortune for being among the seven lucky ones to make the team, but he didn’t have time for congrats. He had to start training, by himself or with the team, it didn’t matter. This match had far more then personal glory riding on it.
    100 exactly

    Just bring it to the match (two posts each should do it) and then Allie will post the blow by blow of the game.=Sammy

    Standing in the shadows of the pitch, invisible to the students that now surrounded the announcement, Molly Parkinson looked on. She watched as a tall Oriental youth made his way through the crowd, back to the doors of the castle; his features were familiar to her.

    Watching the young boy stalk off, she watched as a more vibrant youth came bouncing out of the middle of the foray, excitement written on the heart-shaped face. Molly had to stifle a laugh as the pink haired teen tripped over her own feet and fell promptly on her face.

    Come on guys! Let's get to posting!

    Last Comic Standing!

    Eyes wide, Oliver looked at the 'team' of Professionals gathered on the Pitch. Molly Parkinson, Tristan Wadsworth, Henry Chang, Gwenog Jones, Ludo Bagman, Morris Gorgovitch! These people were his heroes! Well, maybe not Gorgovitch. Gorgovitch was the pretty face on every team he had been on- and that was a lot of teams.

    He came over now. 'Hey, little one. Are you ready to play some real Quidditch?'

    Oliver's eyes narrowed. For a moment, he started to think up a response, but was saved when the tall and striking Molly Parkinson walked up behind Gorgovitch.

    Hey, I'm going to visit some family this weekend in Missouri and will have limited access to the computer until Tuesday. Rest assured, if they have internet the first thing I'll do is post on the QWC. Distract little Oliver with something.

    As her team gathered on the pitch, Molly let out a sigh wishing she could stay hidden. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an easy task for a famous seeker. Looking on as her team preened themselves, she saw Gorgovitch talking to one of the young players. Poor kid.

    The young mans eyes drew into a hard gaze giving a distinct expression of dislike. Molly nearly doubled over in laughter; Gorgovitch thought he was God’s gift to Quidditch and obviously this young man disagreed.

    Swift movement caught her attention out of the corner of her eye; someone had already mounted their broom.
    Whoa... that was tough! I started out with 136 but finally got it down to 99!

    Shen watched as that clutz of a girl grabbed the Quaffle and flew to the hoops. Even before she aimed, he knew she wouldn’t score. Another boo from the crown confirmed his suspicion. The following groan informed his that the pros had scored again bringing the score of to 20/0 to Visitors.

    Shen could see Weasley searching frantically for the Snitch. Apparently he had realized that they didn’t stand a chance otherwise. He himself could not do much to break the ranks and perfect collaboration of the Chasers.

    Cursing softly, he moved to a position he could aim better from.
    Allie, make the pros score thrice more.-=Sammy

    Tonks was getting increasingly annoyed, nervous and ticked off. Stupid Shen still wouldn’t leave her alone! She had made an utter idiot of herself by missing the last goal. And to make things even worse, the pros had just scored another three goals! Three! It was a massacre—the pros were up fifty points to Hogwarts’… zero.

    Tonks’ nose wrinkled. This simply would not do. She was a Hufflepuff! Hufflepuffs didn’t give up—they kept working! Tonks sighed and flew off to follow the Quaffle. She had a pretty good idea that winning would mean getting along with Shen Chang.

    Madam Hooch, the referee, blew her whistle, calling a time out on behalf of the Hogwarts team. Preferring the birds eye view, Molly stayed where she was, easily holding her broom steady by the Hogwarts goal posts. From where she sat she could see the Hogwart’s Seeker in the middle of the group shaking his fist and flailing his arms around. Good, she thought, maybe he’ll get them lined out and we can have a real game.

    When the students returned to the air, the difference in this team and the one that had started the game was visible.
    99 Words exactly! GO! GO! GRYFFINDOR!!!

    The optimist in Shen really believed for a moment that they had learned their lesson after the “talk” but the optimist in him was always kept locked up.

    Just when things looked good, Flint took it in his head to fly solo, unprotected to the goals after luckily obtaining the Quaffle. Shen quickly shot a Bludger at the direction of Rathbone flying to cut Flint off but at that moment, Bagman shot a (Shen had to grudgingly admit) fantastic backhand at Flint from the opposite side of the Pitch.

    The nosebleed that ensued resulted in another timeout for the teams.
