    Go Badgers, Go Badgers

    *Strange Little Cheerleading Dance*

    “Oh, that’s an excellent idea!” cried Charity Burbage, eyeing the two witches warily, sensing the mounting tension. Minerva said nothing, but glared at the victorious woman.

    “Now then,” Septima smiled at her colleagues, “first off, we need to decide who is playing, and where. So who would like to compete?”

    “Us?” Pomona looked at Charity, who nodded.

    “Of course,” Minerva said, stiffly.

    “Please?” Bathsheba Babbling asked.

    “Me,” Aurora said confidently. “I play Seeker.”

    “Good, now I’m a Keeper-”

    “Oh? Well, I’m a Chaser. I like to be involved in the match.” Minerva shot her Captain a sarcastic look.

    Couldn't think of anything yesterday evening, but here we go now:

    “I’d like to be a Beater,” Bathsheba announced confidently.

    Charity looked at the Herbology professor while declaring, “Pomona and I would like to be Chasers, too.”

    Septima looked at her colleagues. “We should play with one Beater only. Even with training it’ll be hard enough to avoid one vicious Bludger.”

    The others nodded and started planning secret training sessions. Sybil in the meantime predicted them their dooms. No one listened of course.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “Gentlemen, we have a serious problem.” Everyone looked questioningly at Remus. “If we go along with Minerva's plan, playing warlocks against witches, we’re in the minority.

    "There are seven of them and only four of us," continued Remus. "I don't quite know how we can field a team."

    "Well, Sybil's refusing to play," said Flitwick eagerly, "and I'm sure Argus would play if Severus asked him so that's six against five."

    There was a noise from the corner; Argus Filch had been sitting there unnoticed the whole time.

    "You won't catch me on a broom," he moaned. "Not with my back."

    It looked as though the team's chances had ended before they'd even taken to the air.

    "Of course," said Dumbledore, "there is always Peeves."

    *Cathes Quaffle*

    “P-peeves?” Filius stuttered.

    “Yes. I believe he would make an excellent Beater. Don’t you agree?"

    “Well,” Remus gave the Headmaster a thoughtful look. “I think… that maybe we should ask Severus? He is the Captain.”

    “B-but,” Filius spluttered. He seemed unable to voice his thoughts.

    “Of course, Remus. How silly of me. In fact, I shall go and find Severus right now. And although he may, I daresay, object at first, I do think he will come around. After all, who better to hit a Bludger than a poltergeist?” His blue eyes twinkled, as he swept out of the room.

    Fabulous game so far, badgers!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    “Peeves? As a Beater? In our team?”

    Silence crept among both men while they looked at each other, twinkling blue meeting cold, staring coal.

    “Have you now completely lost it, Albus?” Severus hissed. “At first making us play Quidditch for the students, and now the poltergeist in our team?”

    The old wizard chuckled. “Now, Severus, I’m sure Peeves will love to lend us his helping hand.”

    “You rather mean his chaotic hand,” the Potions Master mumbled under his breath.

    “I’ll go to see if I can find him. We need to ask if he wants to join us,” Albus said.
    Exactly 100 words. Woot!

    Who's next?

    Alone in his office, Remus was marking the third year's essays when he was interrupted by a visitor.

    "S-septima," he stuttered, "how lovely to see you."

    The Arithmancy teacher sauntered in and conjured a seat next to him.

    "Hi, Remus," she said. "I wanted a chat."

    "Err..err...certainly, Septima. How can I help?" he said, wondering why she was quite so near.

    "It's about this Quidditch match, Remus," she said softly. "I'd hate to think this rivalry could stop us being friends."

    "I-I'm sure it won't, Septima," he said blushing deeply.

    She placed a hand on his. "Oh good!"

    Wow Carole. I seem to be taking your Quaffle a lot! Lol

    Peeves was found loosening the chandeliers in one of the large rooms of Hogwarts. Needless to say, he was rather surprised to be offered a spot on the Quidditch team.

    “Play with the teachers?” he exclaimed. “No. I won’t do it.”

    “Peeves, I assure you, this was not my idea. But the Headmaster requested you play Beater, and I for one wish not to disobey his orders. No matter how absurd they appear.”

    “Oh.” His face lit up as he cackled happily. “The Headmaster wants wee Peevesy to play Beater? Well, if the Headmaster insists, who is Peevesy to refuse?”

    Carole, could you possibly have read my fic? Because that Vector/Lupin there....

    Severus could not believe it. No, he simply couldn’t. He was a Captain of a Quidditch team. Lupin was one of the players. He just asked Peeves the poltergeist to participate. The world was definitely approaching its last breath.

    I will not forget this, Headmaster, he thought sulkily, knowing perfectly well that he would never do anything to harm Albus Dumbledore. Severus sipped his tea irritably.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Albus Dumbledore himself was also sipping tea, but in a much more agreeable mood than his Potions teacher. His plan to distract his staff from their worries was working splendidly.

    And here goes another one:

    Now it was time for the next step in this genius plan. Filius might have had voiced the idea, but Albus had already played with the plan of a staff Quidditch match for quite some time – years, to be precise.

    The next morning found an announcement on the Entrance Hall notice board:

    Dear students,

    It’s my pleasure to announce that we, the staff of
    Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,
    will be having a Quidditch match.

    The match will be taking place a week before Halloween.
    I hope to see many of you to cheer for us.

    Albus Dumbledore
    Headmaster

    "Wow," said Ron to Harry. "That should be...err...interesting. Imagine McGonagall and Dumbledore on brooms."

    "What, pray tell, is so funny about that, Mr Weasley?" said the sharp tones of his Housemistress who was standing behind him with Remus.

    "Err...nothing," said Ron as his ears went pink. "Can't wait to see the match, Professors. Are you on the same side?"

    "Actually," said Remus, "it's wizards against witches."

    "What?" said Harry in amazement. "So you're playing with Snape."

    "Professor Snape, Harry," reproved Remus. "He's actually my Captain and I am the Seeker. Any tips for your favourite professor, Harry?"
