    “Tips?” Harry laughed. “Well, I suppose the trick is to stay focused. Keep up above the match. Try not to get distracted by the game, and err… sorry, Professor…” he trailed off under Minerva’s disapproving glare.

    “No,” Severus said, brushing off his student with a wave of his hand. Casually, he glanced sideways and frowned. Stupid James Potter. Stupid werewolf. What were they laughing about now? Blinking, Severus shook his head. What was he thinking? Potter had been dead for years. That was just his stupid, arrogant son, Harry Potter. But it wasn't like that was any better.

    Go Badgers, the speed of this thread is amazing. Way to go!!!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    As the day of the match approached, excitement began to brew among the students. Most of the people were looking forward to seeing teachers at play; even those who sniggered at Dumbledore’s announcement at first were talking about it with great gusto. Fred and George Weasley began accepting bets on the score; not surprisingly, Professor McGonagall’s sheer enthusiasm about Quidditch skewed the projected odds in the witches’ favour. Students were seen discussing possible tactics that could benefit or hurt either of the teams. No students were allowed to attend practices, which made quite a few people disappointed.

    *avoids bludger*

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

    "Lupin, get over here now!" shouted Severus. "We need to discuss tactics and as you're supposedly a part of this team, I suggest you join us."

    Remus sighed. He was getting rather sick of Severus' remarks about his Seeker ability. Harry had told him to stay focused and keep above the match, so he was doing just that. However, it wouldn't do to upset the team the day before the match.

    "Right you are, Severus," he said through gritted teeth.

    As he flew down to join them he noticed someone waving from the stands.

    "Remus," called Septima. "You're looking...good."

    Go badgers, go!

    Minerva huffed, annoyed. “Do you know where Septima is?” she asked Bathsheba.

    The younger witch shook her head. “I’m sorry, I have no idea.”

    Minerva sighed and started pacing up and down.

    Twenty minutes later, Pomona and Aurora entered the changing room. The Transfiguration professor asked them for Septima’s whereabouts, too, but none of them had seen her. However, when Charity arrived and was asked, she just pointed at the wooden ceiling.

    “She’s up there, in the stands, cheering Remus. That’s at least what I could discern.”

    The other women looked at her, wide-eyed. “She's doing what?”

    Thank you Bine! We have around 2,000 words now!

    “Cheering Remus… Why? To be honest, I’m surprised any of you managed to miss her.”

    “What do you mean? Should we have seen her?” Pomona looked curiously towards the
    ceiling.

    “Well, she was being awfully loud, you know. I could hear her from the entrance of the pitch.” Charity walked away from the other witches and started to change, feeling the conversation was over. Minerva however, was livid.

    “But- but she’s the one who called this meeting!” she cried.

    “Yes. But she obviously thinks her crush on Remus takes priority.” The witch turned back around, to re-join the group.

    What?”

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

    "Lupin, concentrate," barked Severus.

    Remus tore his eyes away from Septima, who was cheering him loudly whenever he flew past her, and looked at his Captain.

    "Fully focused, Severus," Remus assured him.

    "Loopy, loopy, Lupin," sang Peeves as he whizzed past. "Seppy loves Loopy!"

    "Septima Vector!" bellowed Minerva as she strode onto the pitch. "Get down here immediately and talk to your team."

    "Ooops," giggled Septima. "See you later, Remus, perhaps we can...talk."

    "Err...sure," said Remus blushing. He was aware that all the men were looking at him now and that Albus, particularly, seemed to be amused.

    Sorry for this delay. As you can maybe imagine there wasn't much QWC drabbling to be got out of me yesterday.

    But here we go now:

    “Seppy leurves Loopy,” Peeves sang in a long-winded voice, afterwards cackling amusedly.

    Severus narrowed his eyes, took out his wand and shot a silencing spell at the poltergeist.

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

    “What do you think they’re doing, Harry?” Ron asked. He sat on the windowsill, his face pressed against the glass to see what was happening on the Quidditch pitch. He was excited for Halloween and the game to come.

    Harry looked up from leafing through Quidditch Through The Ages. “No idea.”

    Ron sighed and looked back out of the window. “I just wish they’d allow us to watch their practices.”

    Yay!!


    “What is the meaning of this- this- this nonsense?” Minerva shook with anger, and her tone was low and dangerous.

    “What are you talking about?” Septima frowned at her colleague in annoyance. “What was the point in dragging me away from there?”

    “Our meeting. The one you called. Remember?” Minerva’s nostrils were flaring, and her lips, pressed together, formed a peculiar shade of white.

    “Relax, Minerva!” Septima retorted, her temper flaring, as she eventually snapped. “It’s a game! Okay! Just a game. Just to amuse the students. Stop being so uptight!”

    “STOP IT!” Pomona screamed, quite suddenly.

    “Hufflepuffs…” Minerva muttered.

    Pomona turned to face Minerva. "What is that supposed to mean?"

    "Nothing," replied Minerva.

    "You obviously have a problem with my House, Minerva," she said. "What is it?"

    The atmosphere in the changing room froze. Bathsheba giggled nervously.

    "Well, Minerva," said Pomona determinedly, "I'm waiting."

    "Ladies, ladies," broke in Charity. "I'm sure Minerva meant nothing."

    "Charity, I can fight my own battles, thank you," declared Minerva. She looked Pomona straight in the eye. "You Hufflepuffs are always trying to smooth things over. Sometimes we need a damn good row to clear the air but you're too scared of confrontation."

    “How can a row solve anything?” Pomona asked calmly. “I always try to impress it upon my students that arguing can solve nothing. Civilized humans should be able to solve any issue with a reasoned, weighed conversation. Why, do Gryffindors think differently?”

    “Gryffindors are never afraid to fight for what they believe in!” Minerva shot angrily. This whole situation made her blood boil. She would jump off the Astronomy Tower before she would be told what to do by such a… Was “sissy” even the word?

    “Neither are my Hufflepuffs, but our main goal is peace and a friendly atmosphere.”
