  1. As I approached, Ron watched with what appeared to be a bit of annoyance, fear, and guilt. I smirked just a bit. Who knew Ron was capable of so many emotions at once? I slowed down and came to a stop right in front of him. He averted his gaze and focused on his Quaffle, clearly intent on ignoring me. I cleared my throat by the nearly impossible chance that he hadn't noticed me. He glanced up for a fraction of a second, but looked away again and continued to toss the ball from hand to hand. Mustering up my courage, I snatched the large red ball out of the air. He looked up. "What?" was his ever-so-polite greeting. "I'm not here to start an argument." "Yeah? Did Hermione send you?" he asked derisively. "She asked me to talk to you. I think you should try out for the Quidditch team again," I said, getting straight to the point. "No. Not after last year," he said flatly. "Ron, I know you're a good player. So do Harry and Hermione. Last year was bad for all of us. I lost the entire game for Ravenclaw, Harry and your brothers got kicked off the team, and the Gryffindor team totally fell apart. This year might be different," I said, remembering the final Quidditch match the previous year with a grimace. Ron still looked indecisive. "I'll train with you again if it makes you feel better. I'll let you borrow my broom. I don't care. Just try one last time. What do you say?" He lifted his head and looked me directly in the eyes for the first time in months. "No."
  2. I returned the gaze for a moment, and then became extremely irritated with his responses. I tossed the Quaffle back to him, hard. It hit his chest with a thud as he caught it between his hands. "Fine. Be useless," I said in frustration, turning to leave again. That turned out to be exactly what he needed. "Fine! I'll do it. But this is the last time." A slight smile came to my face. Maybe Hermione was right; I was exactly the person for the job. "So, does this mean we're...well, back together?" Ron asked hopefully. I looked at him, my expression stony. That was typical of Ron. He made the most absurd suggestions, and the answer was always quite obvious. "You've got a while to go before we're even friends, Ron. Absolutely not." He looked quite crestfallen. "For a start, an apology might be nice," I prompted him. "Oh. Right. Listen, I'm sorry about the whole thing with Malfoy. You're nothing like the Death Eaters," he said genuinely. "It's a start," I said with a small smile. I took the Quaffle from his hands. "Let's get to training."
  3. In the end, I scheduled my tryouts the weekend after the Gryffindor's. Before the Gryffindor tryouts started, I joined the hopeful students on the field. I noticed a familiar face among them. "Oh, hello, Edward. I didn't know you were interested in Quidditch," I said, greeting my old DA friend. Since he was a year older, I hadn't seen him yet that year. "I thought I'd give it a shot this year. It's my last chance, after all," he explained. "Oh, that's right. It's your last year at Hogwarts." The realization was a bit disconcerting. Come to think of it, I hadn't really registered that I was a sixth year, either. Time flew by fast at Hogwarts. "I think I'll try for Beater. Follow in Fred and George's footsteps," he said with a grin. "Well, good luck!" I said, and then walked over to Ron briefly.
  4. He was looking rather pale and nervous. "Don't worry, we practiced this. You'll be fine," I said softly. He nodded, and I headed for the stands again as Harry called for everyone's attention. By the time I had joined Hermione again, the first few people had already started their tryouts. There were a lot more people than any normal tryout usually produced. Harry was certainly a big selling point. I watched the proceedings attentively. I was going to need all the help I could get for my own tryouts. I watched as three Chasers were chosen - Katie Bell, Ginny, and Demelza Robins. Edward was chosen as one of the two Beaters, and then it was time for the Keeper to be chosen. Ron uneasily flew up to the goal posts. I crossed my fingers. There was nothing I could do but watch.
  5. It didn't go too badly overall. Ron managed to block all of the shots he was thrown. There was almost no way he couldn't get the position at that point. Unfortunately, his contender, Cormac McLaggen was all too promising. I nervously fingered a strand of hair as he blocked first one, then two, three, and four goals. Another one and he would have a perfect set. He was all set to block the last one. But suddenly, he flew in the wrong direction, completely missing the Quaffle. The two players touched ground and went back over to Harry. Ron was the Keeper once again. I let it sink in for a second and then cheered with Hermione, who looked faintly guilty about something. I thought about Cormac's rather suspicious failed save, but let it slide for the moment. I never liked him anyway.
  6. Soon enough, I was standing at the head of my own cluster of Quidditch hopefuls. Oliver was standing slightly off to the side. He had insisted that he was simply there to help, but I kind of doubted he wouldn't try to tell me what players to choose. I looked up at the stands and noticed a certain group of Gryffindors grinning mischievously at me. So, it seemed everyone had decided to come watch. "Okay, listen up! I want you all to divide into three groups depending on what position you're trying out for. Chasers there, Beaters right here, and Keepers on the other side," I said, pointing to each spot. As soon as they had done as I asked, I started having them do some flying exercises to assess their skills. I weeded out the weaker players, which were mostly the inexperienced first years, and then started the real tryouts.
  7. To my utter and complete shock, Cho was among those trying out for a Chaser position. After a full year, she had finally stopped sobbing at the slightest mention of Cedric and seemed to have pulled herself together again. Still, I felt a bit awkward about taking over her position on the team. By the end of tryouts, I had a fairly formidable team. Since Ravenclaw had been a mainly male team previously, I was pleased to see that I actually had a pretty balanced group of players. I found three older Chasers – Cho Chang, a fifth year boy, and a girl in the same year. The Beaters were as the usually were – two strong older boys with a knack for hitting people with Bludgers, and the Keeper was a tall seventh year girl. Harry, Ron, and Hermione joined me on the field. "So what do you think?" I asked Harry with a grin, motioning to my new team. He smiled. "Ravenclaw might win this year."
  8. *music826* I think these editions are probably going to be more focused on one or two guys specifically for each part. The other guys might make small appearances, but for example, Ron was more of the subject of this edition than the others. This far into the series, I think that's the better route to take. I also wanted to go more in-depth with the tryouts, but for time reasons I decided to cut most of it out. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed! Until next time :)
