Anna made me a “commissioner’s edition” of the 6th rulebook as a Valentine’s day present. Girlfriends don’t get more legit than this.
Hand-painted quidditch christmas ornaments that Anna painted for me.
Anna, if you ever don’t want to be a voice actor, you are more talented than many professional artists… :)
Mission X Update:
Hi everyone! a couple months ago I made a post asking people to send me letters that I will be passing on to the inventor of muggle quidditch, Xander Manshel.
So far I’ve received 6 letters… which issss… less than I wanted, but at the same time, perhaps more than I should have expected for the digital generation (that whole writing stuff down, putting paper in envelopes, buying postage and having to actually go outside to another building to send things is admittedly annoying, and I mean that sincerely).
However, I’d really like to have at least 20 letters and ideally somewhere closer to 30 to give to Xander. This guy did come up with this idea, and without him, you wouldn’t be playing quidditch and would probably not know most or all of the people on your team. Just think about how crazy that is.
So, the goal here is to tell Xander how much quidditch means to you and what it did for your life, and also to ask him to come to the World Cup this april. He hasn’t been to World Cup since the second one in 2008, and we need to change that.
Send your letters, written to Xander, to:
PO Box 1663
New York, NY 10025
Feel free to include photos, drawings, CD’s, etc.
DEADLINE: I am sending him a package to where he lives in Hong Kong, of all of the letters, on January 13th. So please get me your letters before then!
Our hello video to our Perth Phoenix penpals. I love this team. Be sure to hear us sing near the end!
This is the greatest. I’m so happy to see how much teams are clearly enjoying the IQA “penpal” program, and inspired to see that teams are transcending the act of writing a letter. I feel like I’m looking at a moving postcard from the HP movies!
WHOOO YULE BALL
where lovely young witches and wizards can awkwardly dance to muggle music
speaking of awkwardly dancing
I definitely left my dignity out on the dance floor when ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ started playing and I got too excited and now everyone knows my dark secret (I just like the one song, I promise)
Christmas lights on the quidditch hoops - now that is freakn fantastic. Why has that not been a thing before!?
My Harry Potter Quidditch snowflake! I tried to incorporate two seekers going after a single golden snitch, the stands for the audience, and obviously, lightning bolts. Enjoy!

-As stated in the 2012-2013 membership plan, there will be a $25 per player fee for each team that is playing in World Cup VI.
- For teams that have qualified for WCVI via a fall Regional Championship, their fees must be paid IN FULL…
That’s right, Anderson Cooper is wearing official NYU Quidditch sunglasses.
All in all, today’s been pretty great.
My team is really really ridiculously good-looking.

30 Day Drawing Challenge - Day 25: An Idiom literalized
Shamelessly stealing this idea from Priscilla, which she mentioned at dinner.
Sorry for the quick scribble, I’m off to see the wizard or something.
Always reblog good quidditch art.
Alrighty! This is about 1,000 words of my view on safe and effective tackling. This is by no means the official view of the IQA and it may not align with what you believe is best.
Tackling is the one of the most awe-inspiring and concussion-inducing aspects of quidditch. It’s every captain or coach’s job to whittle it down to just awe-inspiring.
You go Bear Train. Four for you.
