• welcome
    Welcome to I Solemnly Swear! ISS is an active, literate/advanced Marauders-era roleplay based in the Marauders' sixth year. Please sign up with your character's First and Last name in Titlecase (e.g., Lily Evans).

    The beginning of the summer holidays are a much-needed break from the stress of schoolwork, exams, and the like. It has been a difficult year for everyone, what with the dark events happening during term, and the increasing panic and fear outside the school's walls. Now, with a fresh batch of graduates to go face the world, everybody must still be on their guard, because anything might happen, and everyone must be prepared to face it one way or another.

Gryffindor

JAMES POTTER is a seventh year playing Chaser on a Cleansweep 5.

Flying is the closest synonym to freedom there is. James Potter is a spoiled kid and as such, he was bought a broom as soon as it was acceptable for him to hover without falling flat on his face. Since then, his parents had trouble getting him to stop zooming around the house or even sleep without the blasted thing. Flying. It's a thing for him. A big thing. Because it gives you the thrill of mischief without getting you in detention. Unless, of course, you are using it for a prank and--well. It's a good skill to have. And Quidditch has always been a big thing around the Potter household. It's what the males of the family use to bond. They go to Quidditch matches together. So of course James was always supplied with the equipment and of course he joined the little league Quidditch team as soon as he was old enough to be signed up. So it was only natural for him to follow this progression into the Gryffindor Quidditch Team, right?

MAYLENE BELL is a seventh year playing Beater on a Nimbus 1700.

Being born into a Muggle family, May only heard about Quidditch when a house mate introduced the sport to her once they were at Hogwarts. And instantly, she loved it. She’d always been a fan of running around and playing sports and feeling that rush of adrenaline, and Quidditch provided all of that, plus a thrilling sense of adventure and of being high above the ground. It was the sport she was born to play, in her opinion. She started practicing in Flying Lessons, and she wasn’t, at first, very good, per say. She still couldn’t quite manage to control the broom where she wanted it, and it was weird, not that she didn’t like it, but weird being ...well, flying. But she practiced and practiced, over the summer at friends’ houses and then back at school, until she got really great at it, and decided to try out for the position of Beater. May loves to play, and she’s the most honest person ever, so she would never cheat, and since she’s always active, her body is fit and strong, and has a good aim with the bat. Also, May is not the kind of girl to freak out about getting mud in her clothes, or breaking an arm by a missed bludger, so that helps as well. She’s daring and isn’t afraid to take a risk, and she works well with her team. And when she’s teaming up with the other beater, they’re unbeatable.

SIRIUS BLACK is a seventh year playing Keeper on a Nimbus 1500.

Sirius has always adored Quidditch - and not because it was basically the only wizarding sport worth talking about, either. He loves the thrill and rush that comes with playing it, the competitiveness on the field. He loves feeling the wind wizzing through his hair as he rides his broom, he loves the sound of the commentator ringing in his ears, the cheer of the crowds when his team scores a goal. More than that, he's good at it. He's an exceptional flyer, possibly because he's been flying ever since he could walk, and his size makes him an even better Keeper. People like to joke that all he really has to do is spread his arms and legs like a star fish and not one shot will get past him - it's an exaggeration, but it's not a far cry from the truth. While his large size might not make him particularly graceful on the field, it certainly helps him out when he needs that extra inch in his stretch to catch the ball and safely bring it to his chest. It's the same way that the slight appearance of the seeker helps them with mobility and speed - sometimes, size does matter, you know?

BRADLEY CAPPER is a sixth year playing Seeker on a Cleansweep 5.

Bradley always loved sports. Just, land sports more than aerial. He grew up watching the matches with his father, just about the only thing that they agreed on. He wanted to be on the team, but wasn't sure if he wanted to commit his time to it full time, but he couldn't not play sports. So he tried out, and made the reserve team. He's always more than happy to play, and loves the sport while playing it, just maybe, not as much as some others. Not that he would ever let his father know that.

MAYLENE BELL is Captain.

The moment May got the Quidditch Captain badge the summer before her sixth year was probably one of the best moments of her life. There was no way in hell that she would ever get made a Prefect--not with people like Lily Evans in her year, at least--okay, no, even without people like Lily Evans, May was probably the last candidate for the job. But hell yeah, she could do Quidditch Captain. The previous one had already graduated so it was time for another one and out of all the people on the team, May got it. Which was just, you know, bloody monumental. And yeah, May's a good captain. She's dedicated and hard-working in stuff she loves (like Quidditch) and she has no problem keeping her team in check, no matter what needs to be done. And so far, she thinks she's done a good job.

LYLE MALARKEY-RIVERA is a seventh year playing Chaser on a Nimbus 1700.

Lyle had never been good at reading or writing or sitting in one place at any given time. Lyle had always been a mover, a doer, someone who was constantly in motion, constantly doing something. Quidditch was just something that came easy for him, and it was something that he had fallen in love with because he was finally good at something magical. He threw himself into learning the sport entirely, starting from his first year right up until he actually tried out for the team his second year of Hogwarts. He didn't quite make it on until his third year, but even that slightest disappointment just drove Lyle to work harder and be the best that he could be. Now, he loves just being able to keep playing with his friends for his last few years at Hogwarts.

GRAHAM HUDSON is a sixth year playing Beater on a Cleansweep Four.

While Graham might not have grown up playing Quidditch, he fell in love with the sport immediately. It's the magical equivalent of the best part of his favorite muggle sports– and Graham's been playing cricket since he was a boy. He's always had a sort of affinity for bats, and playing Beater on the Puffer team lets him clobber flying balls all in the name of good, healthy fun. He likes the sense of community of belonging to a team within his own House, and he's not, you know, terrible at the game.

Ravenclaw

MADELEINE CASTRO is a seventh year playing Chaser on a Nimbus 1001.

If we're being completely honest, Madeleine would rather be playing as the team's main beater, but as it were, the positions have already been filled by two of her idiot classmates. However, that is not a detriment to her experience in Quidditch. She grew up watching matches, playing pickup games with her brother and he was the one who taught her everything she knows. True, her abilities are better suited for the beating area, but since Ravenclaw was coming up short of players and Madeleine lost her sanity temporarily, she applied. With her quick reflexes and her solitary night practices that she liked to keep to herself, her Quidditch skills have always been present. She'd just never acted out on them. But there's nobody in this world that's as passionate at Quidditch as Madeleine is.

LUDOVIC BAGMAN is a seventh year playing Beater on a Nimbus 1700.

Ludo's been playing Quidditch for about as long as he's been inventing spells: ever since he was four. Quidditch was one of the few things that tied him to his older brother, who first taught him how to play. Playing Quidditch has always been a good respite for Ludo; when he flies, he finds a world all his own, one that's above the worries of the world and the demands of his father and, well, all the rest of Ludo's concerns. And while Ludo might not be the most devoted member of the team in terms of showing up to practice on time, that shouldn't be mistaken for a lack of passion. Ludo has a ridiculous amount of team pride.

BENJAMIN BURKE is a seventh year playing Beater on a Nimbus 1100.

Quidditch and flying had quickly became one of Benjamin's favourite activities when he first came to learn about magic and the sport. He'd often play with Rose's cousins when they went over, and he'd always entertained thoughts of being on the team, but the fact was he'd never thought he'd be good enough. The position he'd always wanted to play was Beater, and he didn't think he'd built up enough muscle when there was an open spot in Fifth year. Plus, he'd been more focused on his studies then, seeing as it was his OWL year and he figured he shouldn't have something like Quidditch practice distract him; everyone knows that, after your NEWTs, OWLs were the most important exams you'll ever take. And so he practiced during his free time and bided his time. When the try outs in his sixth year came around, he decided that he had enough perseverence, and was strong enough to be an excellent beater for the team. He's swift and agile, and has managed to hone his aim so that he can direct the ball exactly where he wants it to go. He's also aware of the importance of team work, and he's protective enough in general to keep the bludgers away from his other team members.

RODERICK BALDWIN is a sixth year playing Keeper on a Nimbus 1700.

Being on a team generally implies giving an effort, and Rory's parents bear a small semblance of pride when they think Rory is actually trying. In fact, he tries quite a lot, but Quidditch provides a quantitative outcome. He also wants to be on the team because it's fun and great exercise, and it puts something extracurricular on his resume. He's a patient enough character to wait at the end of the quidditch pitch while the action takes place somewhere else, and when that quaffle comes his way, you can count on Rory being ready for it.

Paragraph here.

MADELEINE CASTRO is Captain.

As for being captain, Madeleine doesn't do shit halfway. If she was going to be entering the team, the least she could do was go for the main position. Hell, having the Beaters positions occupied only made her more determined to have Bagman and Burke at her mercy. If only for petty revenge. She may not be the best people person and she sure as fuck has a lot of issues with motivational speeches, but Madeleine can think strategy and she's observed the other teams through the years. She notices weaknesses and for all her displeasure of spending time with people, her competitive streak will always win out and there will be no qualms about doing everything she can to bring her team to the finals.

AUGUSTUS ROOKWOOD is a seventh year playing Beater on a Nimbus 1001.

Competitiveness runs in August's blood, and he needs a way to funnel it or, quite frankly, the boy gets out of control. He likes the sport and has played leisurely for years, trying out a couple different times for the Slytherin team. Augustus can follow directions and most certainly takes action - he has the drive to succeed, even if his perchant for violence causes problems. The position is an obvious choice because he's immensely strong and has great aim. Life in general is a little too complicated for Augustus to wrap his head around, but Quidditch is easy to understand and concrete, making it a relieving pass time for him in comparison to schoolwork. He certainly wouldn't be playing it if he didn't enjoy getting the chance to "accidentally" knock someone's head off.

DONOVAN WILKES is a seventh year playing Keeper on a Bolt 1850.

Quidditch is his life, his whole schedule revolves around it. Donovan learned how to fly whenever he was three, as soon as he was able to hold onto the broom by himself, even if he couldn't figure out how to get the child lock charms off of it until he was five. He tried out for the team third year, and even then his potential and dedication was overly evident. He's been creating and perfecting his own moves for even longer and wants to go pro whenever he graduates.

REGULUS BLACK is a sixth year playing Seeker on a broom model.

This position is reserved for canon reasons.
