Shopping with the Assistant Captains

When I purchased my goggles last week, I forgot to buy a cleaning cloth, so back to Quality Quidditch Supplies I went... and who did I run into?! The Assistant Captains!!

Hermione Bagnold, Olive Bumblebirch, Rowan Dragonsinger and Waverly Trimble were all there getting fitted for there new Quidditch uniforms amoung other things.

Hermione, the A.C. for the ____ team was scouring the shelves for the right sized _____ colored turtleneck to go under her Quidditch robes. Finally successful, she headed over to the fitting rooms to make sure it fit.

Olive, the A.C. for the _____ team was already in the fitting room trying on a new pair of silk thermals. Knowing that one of the upcoming Quidditch matches is tentatively set nearby the 2010 location of the Greenland Ice Hotel, both wanted to be well prepared against the chilling winds.

I spotted the A.C. for the _____ team over by the bookshelves. Rowan was carefully reading a section of Kennilworthy Whisps bestseller Beating the Bludgers - A Study of Defensive Strategies in Quidditch. After a moment, she decided to purchase the book and went over to the queue to make her purchase.

Waverly was all the way in the very back of the store but easily visible as she was hovering about 15 feet above the ground... testing a new Nimbus broom out for ease of movement. I wonder if she has perfected her Woollongong Shimmy yet? Last time I saw her on the Quidditch pitch, she was pretty spectacular with it!

While chatting in the queue with Rowan, I spotted Winnie coming through the door. I noticed she was carrying a rather large parcel from Scribbulus and another smaller one from Terrortours, but she walked past me before I could even get "Hello!" out of my mouth!

After I made my purchase, I said goodbye to the Assistants and grabbed a quick Chocolate Cruch Creme from Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. Now, I'm on my way back to find that yarn peddler Winnie spotted. I need some Shuntbumping supplies... but more on that later.

Bye for now!


  1. Winnie sure is barely still long enough to chat with, isn't she? LOL A very busy witch indeed! And I'll have you know that my turtleneck was just the right will go splendidly with my ______ robes. :)

  2. Of course I want silk thermals! They'll match my silk underwear.
