Training Camp



This season, we welcome the start of the Quidditch League's very first Training Camp!

Here, various activities will be held to improve your skills, gain inspiration or help, or simply to alleviate boredom.

Anyone's welcome! (Players, Reserves, Judges, Mods; anyone who happens to stumble across this forum :P)



Essentially, you're free to use this thread how you want. Some activities will have more rules than others, and some might require teamwork, but those will be stated within the activity. If it's not expressly stated that you can't do something, go for it :P

Just write your story and post here (but don't forget to let us know which prompts you're using!).

This is something new we're trying this year; we'll see how it goes :)

Gameplay



Players

We will have the same rules as the regular season, but with a few key differences:

There will only be four positions per team (though more teams/positions may open up if there's enough interest).

Bonus points for those positions will be the same as usual.

Rounds will be randomly selected from past seasons. You may have written for that round before, you may not have, but as no one will know which round will be chosen until it's posted here, we feel this won't give seekers an unfair advantage.

You may switch positions, but not teams. This is because we want you to be able to try out different positions (as captains and keepers, and beaters and chasers have similar writing requirements writing for chaser if you want to try beater will be almost the same), however you must let us know before the round is posted if you wish to switch positions, and both players must agree.

Judges

A mod will let you know at the start of each round who you're judging, and you have a week to do so (there'll only be about 4 stories each round, so this is plenty of time)

Do not tell the players who you are judging

If you need help with writing feedback, the mods (those that aren't signed up as players) are more than happy to go through it with you

Feedback

Feedback will work much the same as in the regular season.

However, even if a player does not want to receive feedback, judges must still write it (it won't be shared with anyone else)

Me, too! Nice work, new Mods. May I be the first one (I hope) to congratulate all you guys except Ash who already had a golden crown on finally getting the Mod Superpowers? I swear some of you *coughs* have been desperately awaiting this moment!

Oh, I also wish our fantastically fabulous new Mods the best luck for Season 5!

Congrats Wasps on winning! You can all sign up your messages and posts as 'Quidditch League Champion' now! ;P

And congratulations to Falcons for being the runners-up! You guys have got claws and if I were a Wasp, I would be worried the Falcons would snatch the winners' trophy and fly away! :P

And a pat on the back for all writers from the teams and the reserves. You all did a great job this season! I speak from experience; I loved each entry I judged, though for some unfathomable reason I did seem to be scoring Beater 1s more often than not and I swear they were all some of the best writers from Season 4!

My love for Beater 1's aside, finally I congratulate everyone, and most of all Season 4 Mods, to see this season to the end and making it worthwhile and brilliant and unforgettable (for me, and I believe for a lot of other people).

Lastly, I'd like to point out that this is you guys' party on the completion of a successful season, and it is rude not to be present at a celebration in your honour :3

Currently my muse is gone. I need something to do, however writing is not on that list of things that are making me feel better. I might, we'll see.

Plus I'm waiting for someone to give me the prompt that will fit the plot bunny I have right now, because I refuse to write it instead of updating my multis

I'm writing a small something for the after party as a goodbye, since I probably won't be back next season. It should be up this weekend :)

*bounces in the seat because... sitting idle and idle mind*

This place is too pristine. We need some mess and mayhem sorry!

*drags in a huge box of cookies for everyone to share*

GAME TIME

I've unintentionally invented several lame but fun games talking to people. For this one, I'll give you two characters, and you can marry one of them and you gotta give some siriusly silly reason for your choice. The person who chooses gives the next pair.


DEMO:

Person A: McGonagall or Snape

Person B:McGonagall because she purrs. Next pair: Lucius or James.

Person C: ...and so on...


*blows air in an empty bag and makes it burst*

So, first pair: Draco or Regulus?

P.S. PLEASE DON'T EMBARRASS ME BY NOT REPLYING AND LETTING THIS POST SIT AND ROT HERE FOR EONS! D:
