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 :)

Practice Round



(Season 6) Game Day - Practice Round

Friday Games End:

Saturday Game End:

Sunday Games End:


The explanation, taken from the tryouts thread, for those of you who need refreshers:

CAPTAIN: The captain's responsibility is to encourage, motivate and mentor their team through the rounds. A week or so before round 1 begins, the 13 captains will be messaged with details. The captain will then gather their team together (if some have gone astray) and prepare.

KEEPER: The Keeper's job is to try and stop points from the other team. Each round, the Keeper's points will be subtracted from the opposing team. So, Keepers, write well, because the more points you score, the more your opposition will have taken away from them.

CHASERS: Each Chaser will be given a separate task from their fellow Chasers. A Chaser's job is to score extra points. For every optional prompt used, a Chaser will score up to three bonus points. However, each chaser may only use three out of the 15, and you can't have repeat choices.

BEATERS: Beaters block. They try and cause harm to the other players. Though, as we're a friendly forum, we're not going to be mean. Each round, the Beaters will have access to the same 15 optional prompts as the Chasers. The Beaters are allowed to use five prompts between the two. F

SEEKER: In Quidditch, the first Seeker to catch the Snitch ends the game. In fanfiction, the Seeker (between 2) who gets their entry in first will receive a bonus five points. That means in each round only six Seekers will be getting bonus points.


And when submitting your entry, please use this form to make it easy for the scorers to know who we're scoring.

Fics should be between 1000 - 3000 words, and should be rated no higher than T.

Famous Faces

Grab your popcorn and settle down with your designated celebrity!

Please keep all activities PG ;P

Another film round! But with a twist :P

Instead of us giving you a film, we're going to give you an actor/actress and you must something from their wikipedia page to inspire your story.

It doesn't matter how minor their role is, as your prompt is the film and not the actor/actress.

Films they directed but did not act in will not be counted, but voice roles will.

Leave in your A/N which film you used, or your prompt won't be counted.


CAPTAIN: Julie Benz

KEEPER: Katheryn Winnick

CHASER 1: Michael B. Jordan

CHASER 2: John Boyega

CHASER 3: Evan Peters

Chasers, you have access to the optional prompts. You may pick up to 3 each.

OPTIONAL PROMPTS:

  1. [word] Symbol
  2. [quote] "What you had yesterday is only memories; what you will have tomorrow is your dreams and what you will do today, let it be love." — Santosh Kalwar
  3. [dialogue] "On the up side, we're really starting to gel as a team" — Timeless
  4. [word] Legalise
  5. [song] Pride — American Authors
  6. [character] Molly Weasley/Prewett
  7. [location] Gringotts

I'm excired for this :D

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:
