george,

do you people not realise how much fun Fred & George must have had, given the title of their positions on the freaking Gryffindor Quidditch team?

the two greatest pun-slinging pranksters were BEATERS

if they only ever made one ‘beating off’ joke during practice, to their long-suffering Captain (who just so happened to be Oliver WOOD), then that man was lucky

“Oh yeah, didn’t you see us? We beat off the Slytherin Chasers, mid-air so they didn’t get Wood…” 

Oliver is internally screaming the entire time
