 let's enthuse, tag: reverie gunning
Quote

The snow was melting. Spring was coming in. And as the sun started to show it’s face a little bit more, Trisha started to feel a bit more certain about what she was doing. She’d settled into a few clubs over the last few months and they, on top of her schoolwork, kept her busy enough to not dwell much on Sunny and what they’d said to each other the last time they’d met.

The common room was warm and cozy, and Trisha herself was tempted to stay there for a hundred or so years - but she had a club meetup soon, and she’s made a promise to herself that she wasn’t going to miss any meetups. Besides, she was already feeling her face and back heat up from wearing her mismatching and old outdoor clothes. Before she left the room, though, she caught sight of one of her seniors, and walked over to her.

“Hi Reverie,” Trisha greeted the blonde. “Are you going to club today?”

Trisha had picked up that the older students sometimes just called it ‘club’ when there was only one club that was relevant, and she’d begun doing the same the second she’d figured it out. A lot of fitting in seemed to be using the same words as everyone else, and that much Trisha knew she could do. Bludgers still scared her, but at least she now knew how to express that without seeming like a newbie or a wimp.

Kind of.

She and Zoey may not have found a definitive solution to Reverie's inherent veela-ness on the pitch, but between their research and consultations with professor Severin, it was at least something to keep her going.

And at least made her feel less irritatingly bittersweet about the sport.

Ears perking as her name is called, Reverie turns to the underclassman, Trisha, and she smiles a little.

"Ah, ja! I vas just going now!" She responds readily, hair already tied back and ready. With any luck, she'd get some broom action today.

"Are you plannink on going as vell?"

It’s a little silly, but Trisha takes a second to appreciate Reverie’s foreign accent and how it adds a certain something to her speech - but that’s the allure of fashionable Europe to a young British girl who exclusively wears second-hand clothes. Trisha tries to alter her accent slightly to sound just a little bit posher when she answers Reverie.

(Hopefully the change isn't noticeable)

“Yes, I’m going to head on down now,” Trisha says, and without a beat asks (something she’s rehearsed in her head a bit more than she’d admit), “Mind if I walk with you?”

Reverie shakes her head as Trisha asks if she can tag along, smiling. "I vould not mind at all!" It'd be nice to have some company on the walk over!

Moving toward the exit, Reverie finds herself glancing over at Trisha more than once. They may not be particular close, but... Well, now is a good time, right? And they already both like quidditch.

"So, Trisha," Reverie starts, hoping to clear the awkward kind-of-friends-but-not-really air hovering between them.

"How has your team done so far zhis year?"

She refers, of course, to the professional teams. Figures Trisha's bound to like at least one in particular, for all their club mates discuss them.

Reverie not only seems open to the idea, she’s downright welcoming if her smile and voice is anything to go by. Trisha returns her smile and walks with Reverie towards the exit of the common room.

Truth be told, Trisha isn’t quite sure which team she wants to throw herself behind one hundred percent - none of them appeal to her geographically, or have impressed her in the same way the Surrey Storm or Manchester Thunder Netball teams had - but she's figured out that the Holyhead Harpies are a good starter team for any young witch to get behind (even if they did lack a cute bat mascot), so that's what Trisha’s been going with for the last couple of months.

“They beat Puddlemore United,” Trisha says with a grin on her face. Just becuse she’s not a complete fan doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy hearing about the matches. “I can't believe what a stink their captain is making over their loss. He should just be happy it was only a test match!

“How's your team going?”
she asks Reverie, not entirely sure who the blonde girl supported. Some fancy French team was her guess.

Reverie nods at Trisha's news of her team. She remembers hearing of Puddlemere's whiny captain. Distantly, she thinks of her father, then of Scott. Then banishes the thought.

"Oh, ja, I know! Eet happens to efery team, and eet eez hardly good sportsmanship!" Reverie makes a face, shakes her head.

"Ah– Vell, my home team lost to zhe Heidelberd Harriers last veek."

Her home team is, of course, the one she grew up following. The Wien Walküre, of Austria.

"But, my lokal team eez not doink so bad."

“Right!” Trisha, too, shakes her head, mirroring Reverie. It’s awful sportsmanship indeed, and it’s easy to look down on it as a spectator.

“The Heidelberd Harriers…” Trisha mouths the team’s name, her voice barely audible, as she briefly recalls hearing them mentioned before. Something about a surprisingly long match with her own team many, many years ago.

“So who’s your local team?” Trisha asks, genuinely curious who someone like Reverie would choose to support.

Y’know, aside from the wonderful Hufflepuff team who will always be winning in our hearts.

"Ah!" That's right, most UK wizards don't know about the foreign teams, unless they're international bigshots.

"It's zhe Wien Walküres! Zhey are from Vienna!"

Reverie wonders how the dancers are. If the veela she grew up knowing are still dancing, or have moved on.

"Vhich vun is your local team, Trisha? I don't remember eef you'fe said before... Sorry."

“The…” For a moment, Trisha tries to repeat the team name, but she gives up in record time. Foreign languages have never been her strong suit and she doesn’t want to make a fool of herself. “The Viennese team? That’s cool! I’ve never heard of them, sorry. But if they’re from somewhere as fancy as Vienna then they must be pretty cool.”

Truth be told, Trisha doesn’t even know which country Vienna is in. She would’ve assumed France but the name doesn’t sound French-y enough. She makes a mental note to look this up in the library later.

“Most of the UK teams are from Ireland, Scotland, or the South,” Trisha says, repeating what she’s picked up so far. “I think. I guess if I had to pick one of those areas as my local… well, anywhere but the South sounds good, right?” She finishes that with a bit of a laugh that starts off okay but devolves into being a bit awkward.

The southern part of England, as far as Trisha and Sunny had ever been concerned, was full of pompous people who came out in stampedes on sunny days to walk their dogs. But now Trisha wonders if maybe they were wrong.

Actually, she’s worrying a little that she’s said too long an answer for such a basic question, and tries to make up for it by suddenly declaring, “But no one’s better than Hufflepuff of course!”

Trisha doesn't name a team, and Reverie wonders if she does have a favourite team. One "in the south" isn't very descriptive, after all.

"I suppose? But vhich team do you root for?" Reverie clarifies.

Still, Trisha's grab at their Hogwarts home team makes Reverie laugh a little. "Ja, zhat's true!"

A pang hits her chest. Knows too well her research with Zoey isn't exactly turning out as she'd hoped.

"Are you looking forvard to zhe upcoming match?"

Oh.

Oh.

A blush creeps across Trisha’s face as she realises that she’d taken the phrase local team far too literally. Strangely enough, Reverie doesn’t make fun of her for her mistake nor does she so much as hint at Trisha’s dumbness. She does laugh a little, though, so maybe that’s how she reacts to--

“U-um, I like the Holyhead Harpies,” Trisha manages to half-splutter out as she tries to banish all the irrelevant thoughts from her mind. “Y’know, girl power and all that. Do it like a dude.”



Trisha is very aware of how dumb it sounds and every word she says stabs her heart a little, but it’s too late to run off now and, besides, she’s nowhere near creative enough to make up an excuse on the fly.

“Y-you mean against Ravenclaw?” Trisha asks for clarification as she pushes through all her self-criticisms. She tells herself to just keep the conversation going. “Honestly, I’d be more excited if we were up against one of the other houses. The Ravenclaw team is a bit…” Small. Unimpressive. Forgettable.

There’s a blatant pause as part of Trisha struggles to find a nice, alternative word, while another part of her gives up and lets Reverie finish the sentence by herself. She does, however, somewhat inexplicably finish her sentence with an “...innit?”

Holyhead Harpies. Reverie nods, keeps that in mind. Even if Trisha seems a little unsure of her dedication to the team.

The other girl doesn't really give a definitive explanation about the Ravenclaw team, but reading her expression, Reverie laughs. Gets it.

"Ja, I know vhat you mean. Zheir keeper eez awful! Vonder vhy zhey keep zhem around," Reverie adds, making a face.

"Zhey really need to vork on zheir strategy, zhat's for sure!"

Not only does Reverie get it, she doesn’t at all ask Trisha to painstakingly explain everything. It’s nice and refreshing, and Trisha feels a lot more comfortable talking down the Ravenclaw team.

“I know, right?” she says. “All they do is zip around willy-nilly with no plan or, I dunno... synchronicity?” Whew, that was a long word. “Anyway, you’d think for Ravenclaws they’d play the game a lot smarter.”

Trisha suddenly stops and for a brief moment her eyes are wide like a deer’s in the headlights. She’s just remembered that this awful keeper of Hogwarts’ least impressive team is also a member of the very club they’re going to a meeting for, and Trisha can’t help but check with Reverie that:

“This is just between us, right? I don’t want Aurelia having a go at us. Or Isaac.” Or, like, anyone else with biased favourites.

Reverie giggles at Trisha's comment. She's funny, and in a good way at that!

"Of course! Ve nefer talk Hogwarts quidditch for a reason." Goodness knows a number of fights have broken out in previous years over it.

Reverie shrugs. "I am not vorried zhough. Zhey are normally relaxed off of zhe pitch, ja? So eet eez fine, I sink. I'm sure zhe ozher Houses hafe similar talk about ozher teams."

It's all part of competition. Smack talk, interesting match ups. And for Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw just hasn't been one lately.

Not when they can score so easy with their triple-team strategy against the sole keeper.

Trisha stares for a moment, trying to figure out whether Reverie is giggling at her or with her, then tries to game the system by giggling a little bit herself.

It comes out a bit awkward and she stops immediately.

“Yeah, I guess they seem pretty relaxed,” Trisha agrees as noncommittally as she possibly can. She’s barely talked to the Ravenclaw players and has no idea how they’d really react to her saying such things.

“You’re on the reserve team, right?” Trisha suddenly voices her realisation out loud with a bit of a gasp. “What’s practice like? It looks so hard doing anything on those brooms.”
