Seminar: Self-Defense and Quidditch

Recommended Posts

Madam Wilde-Hextor

Twila nodded to the student who was asking for a moment of her time. "Sure," she told @Vladimir Valentin. "We should be wrapping up soon," she added in between casting spells. 

 

She was then trying to consider when exactly to end the seminar when @Radueriel Benson's coward charm came her way. Twila hadn't been prepared for it - it had been quite some time since a student had sent a spell at her - but instead of rushing to block it, she instead prepared to turn her wand on herself. "Finite incantatum!" 

 

Then she continued casting spells, casting a smattering of bloating curses at anyone who looked like they might've been an easy target. 

 


 

Reminder that posts made at or before 11:59 PM CST on August 31 count towards QP earnings.  The seminar will continue until then, after which I'll make a few more posts for Vlad and anyone who wants brief post-seminar interactions with Twila. ❤️

"Nice one, Magda!" They'd both been successful in evading the spell. Jo tightened her grip on the broom, flying higher and looking down at the poor witch that was hosting the seminar. She looked about done and Jo thought that she'd stick with her the evading. There were still other people flying around and throwing spells her way. 

 

EVADE!

Magda grinned back at her friend, ignoring the uncomfortable feeling in the pit of her stomach that came from being so high up in the air with just a twig to support her. It felt good to succeed at something flying-related, even if they’d only managed to evade the woman below because she was starting to grow tired.

 

“You, too!” she called, zipping along behind her Ravenclaw friend. Best to stick with what worked and keep up the evasive flying maneuvers.

 

Evade!

The discussion didn’t last very long as someone decided to interrupt it by making Twila puke slugs. Even though she was basically pretending to be a Death Eater, Julian couldn’t help but wince in sympathy. He was ninety percent sure that retaliation would be coming as soon as she was done, though, so he fought the inclination to go and offer her some water and took off at a run towards the periphery of the pitch, finding yet another bush to duck behind.

 

It was a good call, as the spells that were now flying towards the students were definitely not Mud Slinging Hexes.

The witch blocked his spell, which he had kind of known was going to happen. She used a really cool counter-spell, though, one which Rad hadn’t heard before. He whispered its syllables to himself, high up there above the ground, a lonely static object in the swirling deep blue of the sky: “Finite incantatem.”

 

His wand didn’t even jerk with that familiar pull of magic he felt when casting a spell. It must have been pretty high-level.

 

But he really did like the way it sounded.

 

Welp. If this woman knew magic like that, maybe he should try and stay out of her way. Time to hide!! Rad sped off into a flock of clustering Ravenclaws, scattering them like birds off a fence. “Whoops, sorry!” he cried out, but the damage had been done. Oh well.

Maybe this game wasn’t good for Rad. He was really good at Dueling, and he was pretty good at Flying, but the two things maybe didn’t mix. This was definitely a mark against possibly playing Quidditch next year— his ability to fly dipped significantly as soon as he added something else into the fray. Oh well.

 

After accidentally destroying a gathering of Ravenclaws, he figured that maybe it was time for him to stop playing this game. So he aimed for the anonymity of the ground, where the flushing blush of his face would stand out a little less.

Firmly on the ground, Rad wandered over to the witch who was running the Seminar. She was still busy with the crowd of broomsticks (and, of course, the students riding them) up above— sending spells, blocking the few that came her way, and generally just being a terrifying entity far beyond Rad’s comprehension.


With a faint plop he sat down bodily in the grass and watched her go. One day, he wanted to be as good at Dueling as she was. For now, though, he could be contented to just watch her kick arse. And maybe later he could do some snooping and actually figure out her name...

Dice Rolls

@Josephine Tindall Your evade was successful.

@Magda Trickett Your evade was successful.

@Julian Pritchard Your hide was successful.

 

Thanks everyone for playing! As promised, time for a brief post-seminar interaction. ❤️ 

 


 

AFTER THE SEMINAR ... 

 

"OKAY EVERYONE IT'S ALL OVER! THIS TIME FOR REAL. No more spells! Thank you so much for coming, I hope you learned something and I hope you're ready if anything ever should happen. I'm going to stick around for a couple minutes if anyone has questions - " she eyed @Vladimir Valentin "- or if anyone's been hit by a spell they'd like reversed."
