    QWC - Okay, team seven. Time to huddle.

    Welcome!
    Unfortunately, I accidentally saved over the original first post, in a moment of extreme stupidity. But we don't really need that anyway.

    To reader people/judges: the posts here aren't necessarily all in perfect order.
    BUT:
    This link should take you to the current final draft, which includes who wrote what:

    Voldy's

    Deathpants!

    Hey everyone! I am wendelin the wierd aka thorn or you can call me wendelin for short.

    I am a hyper active thirteen year old from India!And like mind_over_matter I just keep going on and on and on and on...

    *ahem*

    Yup! I love writing too! T'is my lifeblood.

    I thought it would be cool if we did it from different POV's or something. I amn't too sure since I have almost no experience with writing quidditch fics. I specialise in poetry but still...

    I don't know any of my other teamates except by name but I do hope to get to know you all better through this lovely challenge!

    Mind_over_matter, I amn't sure what to do. But I think your ideas are pretty good!

    Aloha, my fellow Quidditch-eers! (Wow, that sounded weird...) I'm Schmergo, and I'm a fourteen-year-old American looney.

    Ummm... right, I have four stories up on MNFF at the moment, but my only chaptered one is an incredibly silly humour fic entitled "The Dark Lord's Blog." My favourite characters to write about are Theodore Nott and Voldemort, but my favourite characters to read about are Ron, Luna, Neville, Remus, and Voldemort.

    As usual, Mind_Over_Matter's ideas are cool on a stick... I do like the idea of the Weasleys playing in the backyard of the Burrow, though. They have enough people to make up a team all on their own.

    I would also like to take this opportunity to behave like an immature child and whine that Mind_Over_Matter gets an unfair advantage because the film of "Order of the Phoenix" comes out one day earlier in Australia than in the USA or Britain.

    Thank you.

    Whoa. That's a first.
    But I'm not going to see it until way after it comes out anyway. The movies annoy me.
    Never the less, if it makes you feel any better, I'll plan to go one day after I usually would. *Pats head*

    ^^ I could so imagine us ending up writing some deeply angsty story from the point of view of the Snitch. Or, you know, a bludger.
    ĎI just get hit around all day. Itís not fair.
    Donít they understand? Donít they care?
    Although a brain, I have none,
    I feel as much as anyone.
    And yet, still,
    still, they just take a bat,
    And smash me about. Whatís with that?
    I pray for the day I get the sack,
    But until then, Iíll just try to hit them all back.
    í

    LOL. And the snitch would be like,
    ĎHere comes the Seeker. What a cow.
    I guess I will be leaving now.
    I try to flee, but, somehow,
    Sheís caught me. Iím crushedÖ
    Ow.
    í

    But, uhÖ thatís so completely off topic itís just not funny.
    We really need to get started.

    Everyone: Pfft. Easy for you to say.

    Yeah, well.
    I think we need to at least have a Quidditch team with two full sides, right? Meaning seven on seven. Iím really drawing blanks, which is unpleasant.
    The only other point Iíve made was in a PM to wendelin the weird, about maybe setting this in the past. Like, distant past. Come on, am I the only one who has an amusing mental image of the Founders at Hogwarts first ever Quidditch game? Or we could have the Order challenging the Death Eaters/Ministry. OrÖ the students challenging the teachers at Hogwarts.

    Iím not going to come up with any ideas that are serious and deep, at least not today. In fact, today my mindís telling me we should write the entire match in rhyme, which (although it would be cool) is utterly unhelpful. What we need to do is be definite on what we want to do, because we seriously need to get to the actual writing part of the show.
    And, since I donít want to standing in the middle telling everyone what to do, now I leave this open for someone elseís point of view.

    By the way though, what times are yíall online?

    I'm... usually online, due to me having no life. Or at least, I periodically dart over to the computer and check my favourite sites several times a day.

    Actually, your Quidditch poem was hilarious. I dare you to submit that to the archive.

    Wow, a Death Eaters versus Order Quidditch game would be hysterical! Somehow, due to the fact that I've usually found sports a bit dull, I kind of feel like our match should be funny. And there can be some kind of stakes-- like, the loser has to surrender magic forever or something like that, only less lame. Something that'll make a Voldy/Harry face-off all the more important.

    You know what would be interesting? If we were doing something Death Eatery (which goes with the Voldy's Deathpants name that I STILL like), but, like, one of the Death Eaters is afraid of heights, so at the last second, Voldy hires Dudley or something to play one of the positions... I know, random.

    If we did the DE's versus Order, the teams could be:
    DEATH MUNCHERS:
    Voldy
    Lucius
    Draco
    Wormtail
    Bellatrix
    Fenrir Greyback
    Dolohov (or Dudley?)


    ORDER/GOOD GUYS:
    Harry
    Sirius (Back from dead)
    Bill
    Mad-Eye
    Tonks
    Kingsley
    Remus

    Or the other team could be the seven Weasley kids, with Harry subbing for Percy.

    Yeah, me too. So I guess that works out nicely ^^

    Well, I don't want to get flaky with it. I'll finish it and then it'll be submitted, because I nev-
    ...
    Uh, rarely back away from a challenge.

    I just had a random idea, when I got a PM from Wendelin the Weird. Voldy's Deathpants could be, like, a Horcrux or something. Voldemort would play Quidditch for a Horcrux. It can be like... That's the only way to destroy it. Or Dumbledore found it and didn't get a chance to destroy it, but to make sure it didn't get into the wrong person's hands he did a magical whammy, so if Voldemort tried to get it back he'd need to play.
    Ooh, and *random idea* Voldemort and Harry are the commentators, and not allowed to play. What? Random Voldy/Harry showdowns irk me.

    So I would be thinking we like totally need to include Rodolphus. Actually, or a dementor. Whoot for dementor Quidditch players. Also, I have this image of FirstMovie!Hooch's 'I want a nice clean game from all of you'.

    Plus, my idea of the good guys is:
    • Ron
    • Tonks
    • Kingsley (because dude.)
    • Gwenog Jones (Captain? What, Slughorn's contacts have to be good for something.)
    • Lupin
    • Charlie. Because his exclusion would be blasphemous. Or maybe Fleur.
    • SNAPE. And the team would be all like, 'what team's he on exactly?'


    Then, there would be supporters maybe. Because I could imagine the twins heckling the beaters from the crowd. Also Ron.

    And by the way...

    EDIT: Oh, and I just realised (seeing as how we hardly have all the time in the world for this), we should probably be thinking about the structure of the plot too (like... who wins, etc. Because it would be so cool if the snitch split in half or something^^).
    Also, about the style of writing too - does anyone have an opinion? Like, about who they'd like to play and all that? Personally, I'm not great with comical Death Eaters...
