    QWC Team Three Take the Lead

    Howdy gang! I thought I'd take the liberty of starting our thread so we can get to work! It's great to see you friendly faces (Both Chrissy and Erica were in my Gauntlet group! Hi guys!) And I can't wait to get to know babekitty_92 as well! I'm sure we'll be able to get a great winning round robin to prove that we are the best team around!!!
    I'm Roxy, as some of you know, I'm the Puff and I'm from England, right in the middle of some of the HP movie sets. We'll have to see what the time difference will be in this group but it would be great to set up a chat on AIM or MSN or whatever!
    I can't wait to get started on this guys so how about we all introduce ourselves and then post our first 100 words. Shall we say that our order will be the order we introduce ourselves in? So I would be first, followed by whoever is next etc?

    Let me know! This is so exciting!

    That sounds great Roxy! M'kay, I'm Christine, but you may call me Chrissy, I'm the resident Turnip of the team, and I live in California.

    I was just wondering (and feel free to pelt me with root vegetables if this is completely outside your comfort zone) if you guys might want to make this a humor fic. If not, that's completely fine.

    Hi! I can't wait to start this exciting Round Robin!
    I know Roxy and Babekitty. Roxy was my guide in the Gauntlet third run and Babekitty had this round robin ages ago that I sort of contributed to. I don't know Chrissy at all, but I can't wait to know her a little better.
    My real name is Erica (it also sort of says so in my avi). I am a Gryffindor and a resident of Los Angeles, California. I don't have AIM or MSM (cause my daddy won't allow me). I do have a livejournal account.
    I can't wait to get started. We are so going to kick the other teams' booty. They won't know what hit them! Thats how much our team is going to rock!

    By the way, for team names, how about "Party of Three," "Tenacious Team Three," or "Triumpant Threesters."

    Ooh, a Humour fic? How exactly could we do that considering the premise of a Quidditch Game? I love the idea and it would be great to pull of, we just have to think about how we would do it!

    How about the Threemendous Four? (I know, it's not good, but I giggled at it!)

    I have absolutely no idea how we could do a humor story, (unless it was slapstick or something... *gigglesnort*) but it would be great if we could pull it off. As for the team name, I have absolutely no idea, but you guys have good options.

    As for communication purposes, I have AIM, MSN, and LJ.

    And Roxy, very cool banner!

    I think it would be cool to do a humour but perhaps it could be general with Humour when it works?

    I also think it would be a good idea to start soon! we don't want to run out of time after all.

    We'll wait another day to see if Babekitty turns up and then start.

    Sorry I'm so late guys!!!!!! I've had some personal things going on, but anywhoo, I'm here!!!! I'll be online everyday again!!!!

    G'day! I'm Abbi *waves* and I'm 14, and live in Australia (I think you could tell from "G'day!" lol) and yeah, that's about all. I have a LJ and MSN, so PM me and i'll give you that.

    Love the humour idea, it's really cool. The names, so many to pick!!! Triumpant Threesters and Threemendous Four are really cool, so you all pick! I can make us a banner once we've chosen so yeah....

    Abbi

    EDIT: Just a question, are we going to use canon characters (From a Quidditch team like the Wasps) or are we going to use our own names? Are we going to have an international team or one from England? Are we going to use a name like the Wasps (Team 2 I think is using the Harpies, I snuck in and looked! lol, I'm a true Slyth) or are we going to make one up? Will we use our own names should we not use canon, or will we make them up? And who wants to be what position???

    Taking the Lead

    By babekitty_92, ChrissyOfGryffindor, Roxy Black, and stareyed_in_LA.


    The Romanians walked out onto the pitch amid shouts and cheers from the crowd, their fiery dragon mascot of red sparks flying high around the stands. The red and black clad team mounted their brooms and kicked off from the ground. Circling the pitch once, they looked down upon their opposition. Belov, the captain and head chaser, called his team together with a smile. After a short huddle, the team broke apart and in one swift movement, swept down upon their unsuspecting rivals who ducked just in time. The crowd laughed along as the Romanians circled once more before moving towards...

    The American team, who were all glaring at their opponents, silently wished for them to spontaneously combust. Of course this wouldn't happen, so, blue robes flapping in the wind, they reluctantly turned their brooms to face...

    ...their side of the pitch, facing the centre circle. The opposing line-up consisted of Steve Callahan, Tibalt Addison and Aaron Filipovic, three of the most talented American players of all time. Today the team knew that this was it. The Americans were good, but the Romanians were better! Semi-final week was crucial and they were ready and roaring (no joke) to...

    “...Bash those Romanians,” Nick Barbu was saying to his team, “All of ’em.”
    “What are their names again?” asked Craig Randall.
    Barbu sighed. “Its Belov, Moldoveanu, Fieraru, Botezatu, Nazarov, Nera, and Micino you ninny!”
    Filipovic flew out to the front lines and screamed at the Romanians, “Your goons are wussies compared to our men. You guys look like cone heads on brooms! We can have your heads flying to Spain and your butts blasted back into Romania!”
    “Aaron,” shouted Owen Prodan, the chaser.
    “Hey, I was just having a little fun,” he shrugged as he flew back to his teammates.
    Barbu roared, “Lets go over there and kick…

    ...the keeper! He's our main problem. Ve've got to keep an eye on vere he is at all times. I 'av been warned zat he is a brute! Botezatu, you must stay close to him. Nera, you distract him vile I get ze Quaffle. Alright team, lets play Qvidditch!" Belov yelled at his team before setting off towards the middle of the pitch. A shrill whistle blew through the air as the two captains shook hands, their eyes shooting daggers at each other.
    Before long, they were off, Belov with the Quaffle shooting down the pitch towards…

    …Barbu, who nodded to William Petro who sent a bludger towards Belov, and Randall crept underneath to grab the Quaffle, streaking down the pitch on his Firebolt A class, the newest and best model broom out. As he dodged a bludger, he...

    …Made a spin in midair on his broomstick. Then, he threw the Quaffle to Prodan, who was screaming at him to pass. Prodan almost dropped the catch, but clutched it under his arm as he sped to the goal posts.
    He could just make out the figure of the keeper guarding the posts. With all his might, he threw the Quaffle, only for it to slip out of his fingers.
    “Damn it,” he shouted before diving down to catch it. But it was too late. Nera caught the Quaffle and was on her way to her team’s goal posts.
    Meanwhile, Petro was…

    ... Speeding towards another bludger, deliberately lining it up to collide with Nera's ear. The whistle blew once more as the crowd yelled and Nera fell from her broom. Before she could reach the ground, her teammate and captain Belov had flown down to intercept her path, catching her neatly in his arms. Gently flying with her to the ground he called the medi-wizards onto the pitch as the game restarted above him. Lise Fieraru, the Romanian beater, now took to following Petro around, club in hand, waiting for her opportunity for revenge. Meanwhile, back at the...

    …goal hoops guarded by Botezatu, Barbu faked a throw at the right ring before shooting towards the left. Botezatu wasn’t completely fooled, but still was unable to save the shot. The American team was now up by…

    ...the other end of the pitch. Micino squinted as she looked for the snitch. She was going to get a victory for Romania, and no American was going to stop her!

    She sped around the pitch, dodging in and out, up and down, left and right for it when she saw it - the Snitch was near that prat named Petro who had hurt Nera. She streaked around the other players to not grab any attention, but Filipovic had seen her. She stretched her hand out and swiped the…

    …American Seeker, Filipovic, sped towards Micino and the Snitch. He wouldn’t get there in time; she would catch it, and the Romanian team would win the game. Urging his broom to go faster, Filipovic…

    …took a swing at the bludger. Fieraru watched as the ball soared towards Petro before catching him unawares in the side and knocking him off his broom. Unfortunately, the bat in his slack grip happened to collide with Micino’s hand, knocking it away from the Snitch.

    “Ouch!” she shouted, as she tried to regain her grip on…

    …Filipovic, flying at top speed towards the interesting scene that had just unfolded, watched as the Snitch took off towards…

    …Micino, who shook her hand to get rid of the pain before taking off in pursuit of the elusive golden Snitch, was now trailing behind the American Seeker. Dodging around Fieraru, who was attempting to apologize for causing the injury to the Seeker’s hand, as well as the loss of the Snitch, Micino managed to…

    …fly though the goal hoop, earning the American team another ten points. Randall high-fived Prodan for the excellent shot before flying off towards…

    …Filipovic, chasing the Snitch towards the American team’s goal posts, chanced a backward glance to see if he was being pursued. Sure enough, less than twenty feet behind him was Micino. Turning his attention back to…

    …Arianne Nazarov, the only Romanian Chaser currently in play, intercepted the Quaffle as Prodan threw it to Barbu. Streaking towards the other end of the pitch she…

    …avoided both Seekers and suddenly reversed directions, heading towards the Romanian end of the pitch. This gave Micino a bit of an advantage, though her injured hand prevented her from turning her broom sharply. Filipovic wasn’t far behind her, though the Snitch wasn’t far ahead now, either. Ducking a bludger, she…

    …threw the Quaffle, and somehow managed to get it past Addison. The American team was still in the lead, but if Micino could just catch the Snitch, they would still win the…

    …bludger, as it soared towards Filipovic, who dodged…

    …Micino, extending her injured hand towards the golden Snitch, and managed to grasp…

    …Filipovic, who groaned as her hand clutched the game-winning trophy. His team had lost the game, and they…

    …would be moving on to the next round. Micino raised the struggling ball into the air as her teammates flew towards her. Below, she could see Belov escorting Nera out of the medi-wizard tent. The two of them were grinning madly, so Micino took this as a sign that her friend was okay. The rest of the team engulfed her in an enormous…

    …Quaffle, which bounced off the goal post and nearly hit him in the head. Barbu wasn’t happy; he and the rest of his team watched as the Romanians descended to the ground and ran towards their captain and Nera. Well, there was always next year. Maybe then they would beat the…

    …cheers, which sounded throughout the stadium, though came from only the Romanian side. The Romanians had won; in a week or so, they would play the winning team of the Great Britain versus Australia match that would take place tomorrow.

    True, that bit still did need a bit of work... hows this?:

    And stop apologising! I feel bad now, I really did think what you guys wrote was great and I love the Turnip of Doom, it just didn't really fit in to the fiction is all.

    Guys, I think we're done. Unless Erica has anything she wants to add/change/edit we've got a pretty good fic! Well done!

    I like it better. And I'm sorry I keep appologizing. : P

    Anyway, I think you're right; it looks pretty good. Great job team!

    By the way, we still don't have a team name, do we?
