Points awarded [24 Aug 2006|07:46pm]

endless_abyss
I am only going to post here because the only people who care about the points probably watch this community anyway, and there is no reason to clutter people's friends pages when I know I can get the information out by just posting here...

http://community.livejournal.com/hogwartscup/25820.html?mode=reply. Congratulations Slytherin for an AMAZING sweep... yet again XDD

Depending on how much time I have during the coming year, this may be the last match I am able to construct. Generally they take a few hours to put together and then formulate into a post, and I just don't know if will have that kind of time while still adjusting to college life. I know I will have some spare time, and I'll be sure to pop on and maybe post a small challenge, but I don't think they will be on as grand of a scale as they used to be.

Also, with the waning interest in Quidditch, as with the rest of the community it seems, it almost doesn't seem worth while, because the whole point is to make a competition of this, not only have one house participate... Although it was lovely having all of you Slytherins responding to my matches, it would have been that much better if everyone had participated.

SUMMER QUIDDITCH! [18 Jun 2006|11:22pm]

endless_abyss
[ mood | tired ]

Because a few people asked, and because I felt that It would be wrong of me to deny a point earning opportunity to all that might be interested, I am posting a summer Quidditch match.

This match is very different from all the others, so please read this entire post. ^^:

Submission RulesCollapse )

Because you are competing with the other three houses, not just one other, your answers should reflect that you are the best player of your position, not just deserving to win the match.

Now that that is all out of the way On to the Match!Collapse )

Thank you all for your participation. I hope that you all have a great summer, and a wonderful start to the next school year (For those of you no longer in school, have a great vacation if you are taking one)! I hope to see many submissions by August 20th!

QUIDDITCH!! [05 Jun 2006|10:19pm]

endless_abyss
Gryffindor, with 2 wins and 2 losses has a total of 100 points.
Slytherin, with 4 wins and 0 losses has a total of 200 points.
Ravenclaw, with 1 win and 3 losses has a total of 50 points.
Hufflepuff, with 1 win and 3 losses has a total of 50 points.

The points have been tallied, and much to my excitement and disappointment, Slytherin wins the Quidditch cup!Collapse )

Congratulations Slytherin!

I hope next year will be even more interesting!

Also, the votes have been tallied for the last match, and have been awarded at hogwartscup.

Don't forget about the specialty matches that will be held just like regular matches! However, if no one is interested in continuing Quidditch into the summer, its totally understandable and the specialty matches will not be held.

Lastly, if there is anyone willing to help me out next year with Quiddich, or who wants to take over completely because they think they can do a better job than me, by all means let me know because I will be a Freshman in college and I dunno how well I will deal with the change in... everything. XDD

FINALS VOTING!!!! [30 May 2006|03:56pm]

endless_abyss
This was posted on Tuesday May 30th Voting will end on Sunday, June 4th.

VOTING GUIDELINES:
Please remember that these two matches are separate, the matches are Gryffindor VS. Sytherin and Hufflepuff VS. Ravenclaw NOT Gryffindor VS. Sytherin VS. Hufflepuff VS. Ravenclaw. When you post your vote, please distinguish between the two matches just so there is no confusion. Vote for one player from each pair for each position.
The point distribution will be the same as the last few matches: the player who has the most votes for each position will win 50 points regardless of who wins the match. The winning team is the team with the most positions won (ie the most votes). For the captain's position, for each vote they receive they earn 50 points, but only get to keep those points if their team wins the match.
The points for this match will be announced after the 4th, as well as the Quidditch Cup winners.


Gryffindor VS. SytherinCollapse )

Hufflepuff VS. RavenclawCollapse )


Thank you all for participating! If everyone is still alive in the coming weeks I look forward to seeing the submissions for the specialty matches.

Sabrina//Hufflepuff Head of House//Co-Mod

(P.S. If I forgot to add your submission and you sent it to me on or before Monday, please let me know and I will add it. There were just so many more submissions than I was used to, so it was a little hard to keep track of everything. I hope I didn't make any mistakes though. ^^;; )

The PictureCollapse )

Chaser: Draw a picture of a Quidditch player (it doesn't matter which team, or if they are flying with their brooms or not) or a whole team. It can be in whatever whatever media you are best in! It can be a sketch or completed drawing, something you have done previously or something new for this competition, its up to you!

Beater: Answer the questions; do some of the things in the Harry Potter world really exist?(There are only 5 because I think they are harder than the basic trivia.)

The questionsCollapse )


Seeker: Write a short fic about why Harry dislikes potions so much. (It can be as short or as long as you want to make it!)

Captain: Hermione insists on freeing all of the House Elves at Hogwarts, even the ones who do not wish to be freed.

Injury & substitution [28 Jan 2006|10:53am]

whiskeylover
What is this? Disaster strikes, as the Slytherin captain, kortnie_marie has an accident with her broomstick & has to be carried off the field injured, just as the starting whistle blows.

Frantic attempts to find a substitute on the Slytherin benches, but unfortunately the only player who is even available is whiskeylover. However, this former player had retired after the last match, and has not been in training since then, so he is sadly out of shape.

Nevertheless, rather than allowing an uncontested match, he grabs his old Nimbus 2001 (thanks again to Mr Malfoy for supplying the team), and kicks off.

The question now is whether the referee will permit such a late substitution just after the start of the match...

The excitement is mounting, as both teams approach the pitch. Stunning Slytherin stand proudly in their splendid green and silver uniforms, ready to take on any opponent.

Veteran Captain kortnie_marie elegantly flies around the pitch, delighting the fans and swooping back down to join the rest of her team.

Beater shessodown is playing her first proper much, and having watched some of the training sessions, I can only say that we can expect great things from the new Beater.

The accomplished footballgirl as Seeker, and the talented seaborne as Keeper complete this fantastic line-up of the most stylish of houses. The firm favourites for this match, they are brimming with confidence and ready to continue their unbeaten season, following a comfortable and comprehensive win over Gryffindor.


Also on the field are the Ravenclaw team, although due to injuries they are a depleted bunch, fielding only 3 players. While all of them are seasoned veterans of the last game, where they narrowly managed to gain a victory over Hufflepuff, the question is whether they have what it takes to put up any worthwhile opposition to the Magnificent Snakes.

Now, while we are all waiting for the game to start, the referee beckons both captains towards her & reminds them to play fair.

A hush descends over the stadium, awaiting the start of the game


Richard, Slytherin

The crowd is growing restive, the tension mounts, one can almost cut the atmosphere with a knife...

There seem to be some problems with the players of the teams, the start of the game has been delayed. But for how much longer? This game, much hyped and eagerly awaited, must surely start soon, before the light goes and flying becomes a near impossibility.


erm, if voting is to finish on Monday, we really should start to see some submissions...
