quidditch in america

Fantastic Beasts and where to find them! Do muggles have any sport that is half as interesting as Quidditch?

anonymous asked:

Do either of you play quidditch?

Arthur: “Actually Jones, I’m pretty sure you’re referring to Potter. Every time I’ve seen you play you end up in the infirmary.”

Alfred: “Aw, Art. You’re just jealous that I can ride a broom and you can’t.”

Arthur: “So what if you can? At least I’m passing my classes.”

Alfred: “… What’s your point?”

Arthur: “My point is that maybe playing quidditch isn’t the best choice for you. You need to spare the few brain cells you have remaining.”

Love is Blindness

A/N: So, haha, I actually wrote this maybe two weeks ago? I don’t even remember. I basically had a dream that had a sort of flowing plot so I decided to go with it. This is more practice than anything else, but I thought I’d share because I kind of like it XD I think I’ve just been trying to find different situations that make Arthur or Alfred cry, depending on the focus. Crying is not really fun to write, but it’s really interesting and I hope I got it alright :P Anyways, here’s to another Pottertalia oneshot!

Summary: Alfred still has to get used to how all this magical stuff works. Apparently, it’s possible to go temporarily blind due to an impact with a bewitched bludger. While in the infirmary, Alfred makes a new friend who doesn’t turn out to be new at all…


It was quite the trivial accident, really.

A simple mistake, forgivable, if not easily fixed.

from Quidditch in America

“We knew from the get-go it was gonna be an uphill climb.  Over here, tackle football is king.  Even within the wizarding community.  It’s just something about our culture.  It thirsts for human confrontation.  We knew we had to give it to ‘em.  We’re not gonna field clubs like Puddlemere United or even the Chudley Cannons.  We knew our audience.  They prefer collision over precision.  Sure, the European leagues have all the tradition and trophies and money, but none of them have ever had what we have.  American Ingenuity.  Innovation.  Risk taking.  Hell, the sport of Quidditch hasn’t changed on the continent since 1883!  We knew it was time for some new blood.  New ideas.  So here in the American League we’ve incorporated the native muggle sport of lacrosse into the game.  Sure, we had the basketball-inspired ‘Harlem Shuffle’ move before, but who wants Quidditch when you could have Quidditch with sticks?  Here in America our sports need edge.  I think the risk has paid off.  The game of American Quidditch has soared in popularity.  Games are faster.  Higher-scoring.  Injuries more gruesome.  There’s nothing like watching a well-aimed bludger fell an opposing beater on a scorching Independence Day Tourney while wolfing down as many hot dogs as you can possibly fit in your mouth.  The sport has never been this big over here before.  Next season, we’re even expanding the league by two more clubs, the Dixie Dodgers and the Sheboygan ‘Wursts.  The future of Quidditch in America couldn’t be brighter.”
