How to Play Snitch

“The two things a snitch needs to be able to do is, first, not get caught, and second, be as funny as possible,” Marks explains. “So the snitch can steal your broom — you can’t catch him while you’re off your broom, of course. The snitch will hit people with bludgers. The snitch can actually grab the hoops and just run off. Acrobatics are encouraged, and the snitch will do tumbles and somersaults just to get the crowd jumping.”

awe shit. xD i have a funny story that i need to tell yall before i forget. So after choir, Ronnie and me went to lunch like we always do. Well in front of us in line was good ole josh nowak. we were talking to him about quidditch and he seemed genuinely interested. I told him to stop by practice tomorrow and watch and maybe play a bit. he tried to make an excuse of not having a broom. well, when you’re broomless, what better position to play than snitch runner, right? haha. i told him this and then explained what the snitch runner does and what i do as the seeker to get the snitch from him. then i told him if he committed to being a snitch at some point, that he’d have to be comfortable with knocking me around. he gave me the same horrified look that other guys interested in being a snitch have given me. and i told him, it’s all part of the game, you throw around the seeker, and im the seeker. and his response was the funniest ever. after contemplating what i said, he looked at me and after laughing went, “i might just… set you down on the ground gently… but i couldnt throw you around.” haha. as nice of a snitch that’d be, its not quite the way it works xD
