"Undecided? That's okay, we can do both," Nia replied, clearly unfazed by this fan's reaction, or possible lack thereof. He was obviously just a little star struck, and that was okay. Not everyday you got to mingle with so many Pros in one event - she'd been there in her younger days, even with her Dad already knowing everyone.

With that, Nia pulled a pre-printed photo of herself at the Bats' stadium off of a stack to her left. "Who should I make it out to?"

Edward just nodded when she said both. He was still dumbstruck and quite unsure of what to do or say. Here was Alina (or at least he thought it was Alina) sitting there before him signing autographs. She looked so much younger than the last time he saw her.

She asked him another question and he responded eloquently once again Ummm.... and pointed to himself.

"Great," Nia said with a grin. Poor chap, being so beside himself with excitement that he couldn't speak. And though she could understand that he intended it for himself, that didn't really tell her who to address it to. Sadly, Nia had never been a legilimens...an over-thinker perhaps, but not a mind-reader.

Undeterred, she missed off the 'To...' bit in the short term, and signed it 'All the best, Nia xxx'. "Have you got anyone with you to take the photo?"

As he watched her write on the photo, he was struck by inspiration. He began to pat his waistcoat pockets looking for his billfold. He knew it was in there, though it may be a bit hard to see.

When she asked if he had anyone with him, he looked around confused.

Default Arrows Table and Heyyy Kurumi!

Ella hadn't been herself lately but after thinking about it some, the nineteen year old decided she simply couldn't miss Alec's Quidditch event. She'd said she'd be there for the big stuff, yeah? And a promise was a promise so here she was. Only there had been some younger girl chatting up her boyfriend at the Tornados table when she peeked her head in over there so she figured she'd go back later. It was just...something she'd have to get used to, she guessed. Came with the territory of dating an adorable human with great hair.

Alec wasn't the only Quidditch star Ella was lucky enough to know though, yeah? For example there was one Maximus James, Keeper extraordinaire around this event somewhere. There was also one Dylan Montmorency, her godparent partner in crime (maybe). Ellie and Alice and Wade and Asher were surely here too and Ella really wanted to squish ALL of their faces. Proud Ellaphant was proud of them. Though is one even allowed to just squish the faces of Ellie Lockhart and Dylan Montmorency? Hm. ...Was Treyen here TOO?

Wandering over to the Arrows table, Ella glanced around and grinned when she caught sight of Kurumi. "Hey!" Waaaaaaaving was happening! HI KURUMI HI! Was that a basket that she had? Were there cookies in there? The blonde's stomach grumbled just thinking about it. Kurumi cookies simply couldn't be beat.

Also, where were the handsome men of the Arrows, HM? She'd brought along a t-shirt for them to sign and everything. She might not be in the most social mood these days but she'd definitely come prepared.

She tried to plaster at least a small smile on her face. The brunette did love her fans, though she wasn't sure how many she had this being her first year up from the reserves. But she had a feeling that this was going to get overwhelming and she wasn't so sure she wanted to be here.

Finally, she was near the other end of the tent and she glanced at who she thought were the employees. They had nametags anyway. She gave them a small smile and nod. "Is this where I should.. ?" Grey eyes darted around, soon landing on the Caerphilly Catapults sign. Yep, this was the right place. She noticed only two names there. Well, at least Muirgen would be coming, she seemed to like this types of thing. But Esme didn't have a choice being one of the rookies.

She slid in at her spot, glancing at the Bats table next to hers. Oh.. that was.. Jack Fritzera, wasn't it? "Hello," she said, smiling pleasantly and attempting for cordial. She did recognize at least some of the players, playing against them, but he had been playing for quite a while for her not to know who he was. Alright.. time to sign some autographs, she guessed?
Ah, another fellow player! Jack sort of remembered her face from playing - he couldn't remember what team she was on though, but he assumed it was obviously the Catapults, since she was sitting there.

"Hello! I'm sorry, what's your name again? I remember your face but...when one is chasing the snitch, names and faces kind of get blurred when you're searching out the little bugger," he explained with a friendly grin.

So yeah, nothing personal!

OH HEY it was Barny! Haha. Whoever they'd gotten to play him today - Jack never got to see their actual faces - was totally in character and ready to greet the kids (and adults, he was sure). He grinned and high fived the bat back. Georgie would LOVE this - he wondered if Reese would swing by?

But the black and red was where she was at now, having finally switched sides and made her father, the famous former Bats' Keeper and ex-Head of the Department of Magical Games and Sports, Theodore Newtington, very happy. "Go Barny!" she cheered on her mascot (totally the best one in the league, by the way), before slipping in to her chair next to Jack. "How's it going?" she asked the Seeker. "Quill and smile at the ready?"
OH GOOD! Another fellow Bat! Finally Jack could relax a bit, knowing he wasn't the only one here. "Hi Nia! Yup, all set and ready to go - and it looks like you have a fan," he added with a sly grin as the young boy came up to the tent, clearly awestruck with the presence of her. Hehe. Awwww, he was cute.

Oh my. He really had a bad case of starstruck induced mutism didn't he? Trying to help the poor lad, Jack leaned over. "Is there anyone else you'd like her to sign an autograph for?" he asked. A friend perhaps? A sibling? Anything to evoke a little bit of nerve moment in the boy's brain.

SPOILER!!: Esme

Still, she stuck out her hand when he passed it by to give him a high five as he ran down the tables, but she was not doing it again as he made the turn to come back down again. She was thankful their own team mascot was slightly more subdued, not that he was here today anyway.

Trying to ignore the bat as he really wasn't helping her nerves, grey eyes flickered around the tent, watching more people come in. No one seemed to want any of the Catapults autographs yet, or more specifically hers as she was the only one there so far, which was fine. Maybe even expected really as she was new in a way. She did catch notice of a recognizable woman as she walked in and said hello. "Hello," Esme said, with a small smile, to return the greeting. Harpies Chaser, she was sure.. VonHue, right? Yeah, it wasn't long ago that they had a match with them and that girl was a fierce one for sure.

She was soon snapped out of her reverie as she heard her name. Oh.. a fan? "Hi.." she smiled at the man as he opened up his autograph book. "Oh, you can call me Esme.." Really, she was just a person too, no need to be so formal.. this thing was to connect with fans on a personal level anyway, right? And then the 24 year old soon felt that familiar warmth over her cheeks, knowing that they were certainly flushed red as he laid compliments on her. "Well, thank you," she said, tucking a short lock of hair behind her ear. "That's very kind of you to say.." And he knew her from the reserves? He must really be a fan.. but not one of the stalkerish types, right? She eyed him a minute though she she tried to relax into a gracious smile. "You've been a Catapults fan for some time, then? They must be your favorite.." Or she could assume, even if he'd lie to her to flatter her.

She just reached out her hand to offer to sign the man's book when she heard a very cheerful, very familiar voice at her side. Oh thank Merlin! Having her friend and teammate with her made her feel slightly less nervous about this whole thing, though she knew the Beater was slated to play some game with the fans at some point as well. "Muirgen.. hi!" Esme returned the other woman's grin as she took her place in the seat next to her. "We've got ourselves a Catapults fan here.." She smiled a bit at the man, whose name she'd find out in a minute so she could sign his book. Certainly he'd want Muirgen's autograph too? Or she might rethink that whole stalker thing..


Seee this one new what was up with the bat! Giving him a high five ws only an invitation to Barny. On his way back past he noticed she did not give him another high five, so at that point he moved to the other side of the table and dances around her. She enjoyed his batty moves didn't she? Oh and look there was a fan too. He waved at the fan and made a heart with his batty hands then pointed to Esme. He loved her didn't he. All star struck. Well the bat went and hugged Esme waving to the fan. All in good fun don't worry.

SPOILER!!: Nia, Jack, Edward

She was too young, but the look was unmistakable.



He walked over to the Bats' table to talk to the young lady sitting there. He waited his turn and stood in front of her and just sort of stared, his mouth partially opened.

Oh yeah the Batty love was going around! He could feel it and Barny jumped up and down wiggling his bum as Jack high fived him! Oh yeah it was time to dance and entertain the fans. That's what he was here for and finding a fan being super shy was where his focus headed. Moving to the quiet fan (Edward) he wiggled his bum bumping the man gently with his big batty bum.

Oh yeah.. oh yeah it's Batty's Birthday, not really, but he could do the dance moves like it was. Come on stranger fan you know you want to dance with him! Oh and look the beautiful Nia was cheering him on. Giving her a few batty fist pumps in the air he strutted to the back of the table again and gave her a huge Barny hug.

"How's everythin' goin'??" Muirgen asked her friend, knowing she could be a bit neeervous around new people and such. Not her, though, she loooovvveeeddd meeting fans and new people and such. Ohh, and there was a guy right there already! "Hello!!" The redhead waved happily at him, grinning and waving a hand at him. "Noooo, it's Muirgen!" Call her by her Irish name, pleeeease, hehehe! She'd hold out a hand for him to shake and ask him his name, but he was busy getting Esme's autograph, which was all good!

But HEEYYY she knew that accent!!! "You Welsh??" The Welsh lady asked out of the blue as he spoke to Esme, a hint of excitment in her tone. Of course, being Irish was the coolest thing someone could be, but the Welsh were close second! Good thing she was half and half, huuuh??? Got the best from both countries, hehehehehehehehee!

And awww, the Catapults were his favourite. How nice. Muirgen smiled warmly at that and then turned to look at Barny again. Bwahahahahaa, maaan, he was funny! The Beater laughed joyfully when the mascot hugged her teammate after that little joke. AWWWW! "Can I 'ave a cwtch too??" She asked, grinning and stretching out her arms. PLEEEASE??? She even did some grabby hands too. The thing was too cute!

Merlin, forbid! Dylan had finally made it to this quidditch thing, a little late, sure...but it was not at all his fault.

Smirk.

Females. They were to blame. The redhead and blonde one. Both of them. *casual blame*

Having lost Sel and Vivi somewhere in the fray, he made his way to the Appleby table and sat. The urge to kick his feet up was strong....As an afterthought, was this just for autographs? Were they going to also be expected to pose for pictures?

The familiar faces, though; Sierra and Kurumi at the forefront....This was going to be fun. Dylan adjusted his glasses off the bridge of his nose and up into his hair.

....Where was Maxy?

Xaria was still whining a bit, letting out a cry anytime Ariana tried to move her from hiding under her hair. She supposed this was a pleasant way for meeting others none the less. "they're all gone." she rubbed the baby's back as she made her way over to the tables where she saw lots of familiar faces around. Suddenly this seemed like a bad idea. Not that she was embarrassed of her daughter, she wasn't she just didn't want people stopping and goggling over her. The mascots were one thing but Xaria also wasn't too fond of strangers lately and she wasn't sure how much more screaming and hair pulling she take today. "I see uncle dyllllannn." she whispered into the childs ear as she neared the table that he seemed to just be getting comfortable at. "and, look aunt ella too." not that they we're related to her OR Oakey in any way but the title was given to them via their relation to the baby and Minerva. really the only aunt's and Uncle the baby had and Ariana was more than okay with that. "are you gonna smile for them?" maybe? possibly? and stop hiding in her hair.

She gave Dylan a soft wave as she came into view of the table more and she was in his view. Would he be up to seeing Xaria in this setting? well, it didn't matter it was happening. yup Xaria always won over anything with Dylan, it was like the child knew that as Ari noticed her head lift off her shoulder.

Dylan was making faces at mascots, currently...but abruptly halted when he caught sight of Ariana Logan and his Godchild; a most welcomed sight!

"Logan, how very lovely it is to see you. Need me to sign something?" SMIRK.

Hehe. "Hand over my god-child." GRABBEH HANDS! Seriously, Dylan wanted her. Give her HERE! He always, ALWAYS had time for Xaria no matter what he was doing, silly mommy.

She was definitely rolling her eyes and shaking her head at the seeker. She was also muttering about how much of an idiot he was under her breath. He knew he was though she she didn't need to verbalize it loudly. "I'm sure i have your autograph.... somewhere.... in a box." heh, Smirk. she could play that. She also didn't need his autograph seeing as how he was in her life all the time anyway. Looking down at Xaria as she peeked through her hair towards the familiar voice she raised an eyebrow. "Only if you teach her manners and not ever to speak like you just did." she said pulling the baby off her. "Xaria, Look." She heard the baby giggle softly and Ariana couldn't help but grin like an idiot. Her child was the best clearly."take her." she was looking at Dylan. "i think the mascots traumatized her on our way over here."

She also didn't need his autograph seeing as how he was in her life all the time anyway. Looking down at Xaria as she peeked through her hair towards the familiar voice she raised an eyebrow. "Only if you teach her manners and not ever to speak like you just did." she said pulling the baby off her. "Xaria, Look." She heard the baby giggle softly and Ariana couldn't help but grin like an idiot. Her child was the best clearly."take her." she was looking at Dylan. "i think the mascots traumatized her on our way over here."
"Can't have anyone traumatizing my god-child." Ella shuffled over and approached the little cutie pie, a stupid smile playing on her lips. Was Xaria the cutest ever or what? The blonde might be a little biased but still, adorable little girl was adorable.

"Guess I'll have to wait my turn to hold her, huh?" The nineteen year old looked between Dylish and Ari with a sheepish smile. Also, "You guys look nice." Not as cute as Xaria but hey, life wasn't fair.

Still looking for Selina, her violet eyes fell on the blonde who had just arrive. Something was familiar about her - besides the obvious of her seeing the quidditch player at matches - but she was having a hard time placing her. "Hello," she bowed, her brain going over the Harpies roster and searching for a name.

OH RIGHT!

"Isobel, right?" she asked, setting her basket down on an empty area of the table. "I'm Kurumi Rasting. It's nice to meet you in person instead of just watching you from the stands."

HOLY KNEAZLE LOOK AT THE ADORABLE MASCOT! Could she set a hug too? A gentle one? Please?

OH LOOK THERE WAS AN ELLA!

"Ella!" she shouted back, returning the wave with equal enthusiasm. Of course she should have expected to see Ella here. Merlin it was like a reunion! They should all go get dinner and drinks together afterwords if time allowed. She would be sticking to pumpkin juice, however, although that really wasn't anything out of the ordinary for her.

If Kurumi were not waiting, she would have made her way over towards Ella for some chit chat, but seeing as the aspiring magizoologist was now in conversation with Dylan and...was that Ariana? ... she settled for waving for now. She wanted to hear all about university later though, okay?

Her violet eyes then fell on the baby. Baby. Kurumi rubbed her belly subconsciously. N'aaaaaw.

And she was here! Fiiiiiiiinally. Concession stand had happened and it had been glorious, but all professional snackers had to know when was time the time to be professional other things. In her case a Quidditch player. Though, she would have very happily spent all day near the food.

Maybe she would suggest they give the talent their own food trays for the next signing. They WERE doing another one of these, yes? Because that cupcake had blown her mind. The fear of living without never eating another would plague her dreams for weeks.

Perhaps she should just slip out and eat more for memories sake...

No. Vivi said work needed to happen. Merlin, she hated the logic in that. Dumb professional arrestor person logic.

Walking into the tent where the Harpies would be she scanned the room...for food. AND SAW A BASKET! Better yet, the basket was being held by a Kurumi, which practically guaranteed food. Brilliant. She was estatic.

The redhead beelined for more food. Until she saw something tall, blonde and infuriatingly handsome. Not that she hadn't already seen him all done up today. They'd come together....for travel convenience reasons.

Blush!glare.

She brushed by him and gave quick hellos to Ariana and Ella, "Hey Ariana, Ella." She grabbed Xaria's foot and squeezed it lightly, "And you Xaria." No hellos for Dylan. She was sick of saying his name today.

Then OFF she went to Kurumi. Who was wearing...WHAT WAS SHE WEARING?! Was that HER face?! Oh no. "Give me food, ASAP, Rumi. I miss be hungry because I'm hallucinating you have a SHIRT with my FACE on it!"

Glancing around and smiling towards the players that were showing up and fans, Vic carried her professional smile. They were there to help so she wanted to make herself available if needed.

"Benji, is everything going alright so far? Have you made it to the other tent?" She hated just having him for two tents, but so far the lines for autographs weren't horrible. That would change soon though.

Sooo. Yeah. Iwin hadn't been fangirling before coming here..nope. Not at all.

But honestly. He totally had! He had his autograph book ready, and he was super excited to see everyone! He had been a Catapults fan since he was very young, and knowing that two of their players would be here?! He was happy. The chaser and the...seeker? Was it? He couldn't remember which players were coming, exactly. But regardless, he had been a dedicate fan for years...and most of these players, though some of them new, he had seen in action because he LOVED Quidditch just THAT much. He waved at the man with the name-tage at the front who looked very smug, cool, and confident, and of course he was. He was running this tent, it seemed.

"'Ello--" he said in a friendly manner, but he eventually eyed the place. He wanted to chat but--he spotted Esme Whittebrook! The Chaser! He smiled gently and made his way over to her. She didn't exactly have anyone in line yet! Win!

"Hi--Miss Whittebrook--" he said with a slight blush. He pulled out his autograph book from his bag and began to fumble with the pages. "You're a lovely chaser--I was surprised you hadn't come out of reserves sooner--" he said, chuckling a bit and feeling less nervous. She was very pretty...but Iwin didn't feel nervous just because women were pretty. This one was pretty, a talented chaser...and..well...skills! "I've been a fan since I was younger, and I TOLD me' dad that new blood would be good for the team--" he said, ruffling his hair a bit as he glanced around..eyeing some of the other players that he wanted to get.
Benji continued to walk the tent, making sure nothing was getting out of hand. He wouldn't bother messing with the antics of the mascot, that was the fun of having them around. This was going well so far. He looked as some awkward kid was waving at him. He waved back "Hello." He seemed okay but Benji found the random greeting weird, then he remembered the badge he was wearing probably drew attention, at least more than his face..

He turned hearing his name, blue eyes focusing on his boss who had only just arrived. "Everything seems to be running smoothly, i need to check the other tent soon. How are things going elsewhere?" He asked and noticed one of the players and a few others fawning over some baby.. He rolled his eyes a little. Children were over-rated. He didn't get the fascination and therefore thought this group were a bit odd, making a fuss about a common baby while in a tent full of quidditch players. He would have mentioned it but he was sure that his boss wouldn't only fuss at him but having children she would disagree.

"If you need anything through the day please feel free to find myself or another from my team. They will be happy to help."

She did have a personal reason to be there though. Bart was very upset about not being able to be at the event, and she thought maybe getting some autographed items might help and what teenage boy wouldn't want autographs and pictures of the Harpies. Getting a team picture out of her bag she set it on the table. She had a few perks when it came to her job and getting the team pictures were one of them. "If you don't mind, my son is unable to attend being at school and I know he'd just love your autograph." It wasn't his Warriors, but he's be excited she was pretty sure. [/color]


"Hello," Isobel greeted when the woman showed up at their table. She didn't know who she was, but guessed that she was from the Ministry, from Magical Games and Sports to be exact. They were the ones running this whole thing, yes? "Thank you," she said, mainly in response to the offer of help but also because she'd help put this together and that deserved recognition and thanks.

She was talking to her, right? This woman wanted her autograph? Alright then. Isobel eyed the team picture, she had one just like it somewhere around her home. "What's your son's name?" She asked the woman? He would probably like if the autograph(s) were personalized, yes?

SPOILER!!: Kurumi

"Yes," she nodded as the other girl appeared to know her name. Isobel still had not placed how she knew her yet. That is, not until she introduced herself. "Oh Kurumi, hey. It's nice to meet you too, I remember you from Hogwarts." They'd never really talked, but Isobel knew who she was. She'd been Kurumi Hollingberry back then, so she must have gotten married. "How have you been?" She didn't know her well enough to really ask about her life, but she could make friendly conversation.

Heh, he couldn't help but notice the good looks..he was male. But he would play nicely for now. Plus he was a bit nervous on top of everything ...so ...yeah...

Esme. Okay. Yeah. He would call her Esme. She was super friendly, too, which only made his brown eyes glint more. "No problem. Team needs all the encouragement! I wish more of the team was here--though--then I might just faint--" he teased lightly. He really would be fangirling if the whole Catapults team was here, though.

"They are my favorite. Since I was younger. Me' dad and mum would always take me to the games...and my brothers.." he grinned just thinking about those times. "And I also never miss a game now." Season tickets, eh? He turned his steady gaze to Muirgen and smirked. "And I'd like your autograph, too." Please? Hehe. Maybe that sounded a bit commanding, but he added in a friendly smile after that..his voice was so serious! Thank God it didn't do that shaky thing that happened to his brother when he was nervous. He ruffled his hair from habit--again--and just sighed a bit. Right. Be calm, Iwin. "Name's Iwin, yeah--" he added, noticing she was waiting to hear it. "Iwin Howell--" their family had been donating to the team for years, so maybe they'd be familiar, but maybe not? Who knew.

...well then it hit him. he was with CATAPULTS PLAYERS. And he almost squee-ed but that would be a very annoying and girly thing to do. So no.

"Hello! I'm sorry, what's your name again? I remember your face but...when one is chasing the snitch, names and faces kind of get blurred when you're searching out the little bugger," he explained with a friendly grin.

So yeah, nothing personal!

Oh and look there was a fan too. He waved at the fan and made a heart with his batty hands then pointed to Esme. He loved her didn't he. All star struck. Well the bat went and hugged Esme waving to the fan. All in good fun don't worry.

Ohh, and there was a guy right there already! "Hello!!" The redhead waved happily at him, grinning and waving a hand at him. "Noooo, it's Muirgen!" Call her by her Irish name, pleeeease, hehehe! She'd hold out a hand for him to shake and ask him his name, but he was busy getting Esme's autograph, which was all good!

But HEEYYY she knew that accent!!! "You Welsh??" The Welsh lady asked out of the blue as he spoke to Esme, a hint of excitment in her tone. Of course, being Irish was the coolest thing someone could be, but the Welsh were close second! Good thing she was half and half, huuuh??? Got the best from both countries, hehehehehehehehee!

And awww, the Catapults were his favourite. How nice. Muirgen smiled warmly at that and then turned to look at Barny again. Bwahahahahaa, maaan, he was funny! The Beater laughed joyfully when the mascot hugged her teammate after that little joke. AWWWW! "Can I 'ave a cwtch too??" She asked, grinning and stretching out her arms. PLEEEASE??? She even did some grabby hands too. The thing was too cute!
"Oh it's going well," Esme replied with a small smile as Muirgen asked. "Rather slow yet, but I'm sure it'll pick up." Well, she didn't know that, but it seemed the thing to say. And if it did get busy, she really hoped that it was at a time that her teammate shared autograph duties with her and not leave her alone while she went to hit bludgers.

Giving their fan a bright smile, she picked up a self-inking quill at their table and began signing his open book. "Alright, Iwin," she glanced up with a little grin as he provided his name and she scribbled a little message along with her signature. To Iwin, May your quaffle always reach the hoops, All the best, Esme Whittebrook. "Here you are.." She looked up with a smile before sliding it over to Muirgen for whom he already expressed an interest in an autograph. Well.. he really was so very nice, wasn't he? She blushed again as he went on about the team and she couldn't help but chuckle at his fainting remark. "Oh, but we couldn't have that now.. how would you get to speak with us if you were unconscious on the ground?" she teased back a bit. "A fan from the start, how lovely. It's so very nice to meet such a dedicated fan." Never miss a game, hm?

Another chuckle left her lips as Muirgen caught on to the fact that he must be Welsh. It wasn't too surprising as many of their fans seemed to be, but it figured that her teammate would pick up on it, knowing her love for all things Welsh. As her friend spoke to Iwin, Esme glanced again to the table next to theirs, giving Jack a small smile through her blush as he tried to remember her name. "Oh, it's Esme.. and really, no worries. We've never formally met and I've only been on the starting line-up this past season." But of course, people knew who he was. He'd been a star player for years.

As she was talking to Jack and still somewhat attuned to Iwin and Muirgen, she noticed someone moving around behind their table. No one else from their team was.. What the -- ? Alright, that Bat really had gone batty, hadn't he? She watched him dancing around her a minute, giving him a slightly bemused smile and nodding a little until.. Oh. My. MERLIN. Esme's eyes got really big and she blushed bright red as he made a heart with his hands, pointing from Iwin to her. She stared at the bat mortified and sort of gave him an awkward pat as he hugged. "Sure, sure.. real funny, Barny." It might have been if she had watched it happen to someone else, but.. Yeah, go hug Muirgen now.

“Hey bossman.. man.” Oliver greeted, sidling up to the old dude who was talking to another old dude (hehe), whom received a beamy smile. This was AWESOME. Like, totally up Oliver's attention seeking street..

All they needed now was the fanz.
Mummy was talking to Daddy over thERE so she could still see her and Corbin had already left them for Uncle Tyler and Nath!poop so Saffron was going to find Uncle OLIPOP. Uncle Olipop and then Auntie Kaia. HER TWO FAVOURITES. Two of the ten anYWAY. She skipped past ALL of the other tables, hands on her hips and poster in need of signing. She'd gotten her parents to take it down off the wall, added even more glitter to his BIG flapping hair and rolled it up.

Waity. Waity. WAITY.

OH THERE HE WAS.

"UNCLE OLIVERRRRRRRRRR!" The seven year old wiggled her head so her hair flapped around a little bit too and she ran in the direction of the table he was sitting at. YADA YADA YADA. She didn't care what team it was or the other sitting with him. They weren't her favourites or her UNCLE.

"Mummy said you'd sign my poster and give me a kiss."

And he wouldn't let her MUMMY down, right? Hands. On. Hips.

THE ARROWS WERE HEREE!!!! ..............

.....

Zeke could barely contain his excitement, so wide-eyed and grinning, he'd ditched Emily somewhere and almost ran directly to the Arrows table. But there were PEOPLE in his way. Did they not know he LOVED the Arrooooowwsss?! HUH?!

T____________T

On tip toes, he finally managed to see WHO was actually here, and ONE name - or face, rather - stood out. IT WAS JAMESSSSSSS! MAXIMUS! HIM! HIIIIIIIM!

Pushing his was forward to the table, Zeke flopped both hands on the edge in front of him and just STARED at the Keeper for a moment.

............ "HI!" he greeted shortly. He was a fan, clearly, the jersey said it all.
How did these things work? Huh? He was the son of a Department Head, could he like, borrow the Keeper for the day?

Oh my. He really had a bad case of starstruck induced mutism didn't he? Trying to help the poor lad, Jack leaned over. "Is there anyone else you'd like her to sign an autograph for?" he asked. A friend perhaps? A sibling? Anything to evoke a little bit of nerve moment in the boy's brain.
"Looks like it's gonna be a busy day..." Nia replied, scanning the crowds already forming. She flexed her fingers lightly, knowing the likely task ahead. "Glad to have some company up here today, but feel free to go for a wander round the other stuff too. It's quite the event."

And, yes...she did have a fan.

Oh yeah.. oh yeah it's Batty's Birthday, not really, but he could do the dance moves like it was. Come on stranger fan you know you want to dance with him! Oh and look the beautiful Nia was cheering him on. Giving her a few batty fist pumps in the air he strutted to the back of the table again and gave her a huge Barny hug.

Barny's fist pumps earnt the mascot a few more cheers from Nia, and she grinned as the Bat came back to give her a big hug. "You're the best, Barny," she said, returning his squeeze. "It wouldn't be the same without ya."

"Oh, no...there's no need to pay," Nia said, as the man reached towards his wallet. "We're here for you as the fans," she added with a smile. "And I meant if you had someone to take the photo. No worry though, I'm sure Jack here won't mind." She looked towards the speaker, a look of 'HELP!' briefly crossing her face. She didn't think she was bad with fans, but this guy's continued silence was, to be quite honest, getting slightly unnerving. She fiddled with her engagement ring, and re-straightened her bangle. The guy did know she was engaged, right?!

"Don't be ridiculous, Logan. I was teasing..." Sorta. Maybe...a little bit....Mhm.

Not bothering with whoever else might've been around for signing things, Dylan took Xaria from her arms and immediately snuggled her tiny face. "My little love!" Squish! Goddaughters were fun. He'd been wise to accept the responsibility...Besides, Xaria was always exceptionally behaved for him. Gunter probably hated it.

Dylan, the baby whisperer. It was known.

Cooing some nonsense words into her ear, he beamed at Ella...and then Selina, who had suddenly appeared from wherever she'd gotten lost to. Food. She always followed the food. Dylan should've known.

"Here, Ella." Yes, he usually hogged the godchild...and mostly, he wasn't even the least bit sorry but...he was in a good mood. For reasons...and Sel was about to get it. So, he needed free hands for that. Immediately to Cookie without a backwards glance. PSSH, rude.

Oh, wait....There was a kid. He settled on scowling at the redhead for the time being.

Also, this JAMES jersey was adorable.

"Hello."...No, he probably wasn't speaking directly to him...but Dylan still felt compelled to respond. "That jersey is nice, man."

Oh and look there was a fan too. He waved at the fan and made a heart with his batty hands then pointed to Esme. He loved her didn't he. All star struck. Well the bat went and hugged Esme waving to the fan. All in good fun don't worry.
SPOILER!!: Nia, Jack, Edward




Oh yeah the Batty love was going around! He could feel it and Barny jumped up and down wiggling his bum as Jack high fived him! Oh yeah it was time to dance and entertain the fans. That's what he was here for and finding a fan being super shy was where his focus headed. Moving to the quiet fan (Edward) he wiggled his bum bumping the man gently with his big batty bum.

Oh yeah.. oh yeah it's Batty's Birthday, not really, but he could do the dance moves like it was. Come on stranger fan you know you want to dance with him! Oh and look the beautiful Nia was cheering him on. Giving her a few batty fist pumps in the air he strutted to the back of the table again and gave her a huge Barny hug.

She'd hold out a hand for him to shake and ask him his name, but he was busy getting Esme's autograph, which was all good!

But HEEYYY she knew that accent!!! "You Welsh??" The Welsh lady asked out of the blue as he spoke to Esme, a hint of excitment in her tone. Of course, being Irish was the coolest thing someone could be, but the Welsh were close second! Good thing she was half and half, huuuh??? Got the best from both countries, hehehehehehehehee!

And awww, the Catapults were his favourite. How nice. Muirgen smiled warmly at that and then turned to look at Barny again. Bwahahahahaa, maaan, he was funny! The Beater laughed joyfully when the mascot hugged her teammate after that little joke. AWWWW! "Can I 'ave a cwtch too??" She asked, grinning and stretching out her arms. PLEEEASE??? She even did some grabby hands too. The thing was too cute!

"Oh it's going well," Esme replied with a small smile as Muirgen asked. "Rather slow yet, but I'm sure it'll pick up." Well, she didn't know that, but it seemed the thing to say. And if it did get busy, she really hoped that it was at a time that her teammate shared autograph duties with her and not leave her alone while she went to hit bludgers.

Giving their fan a bright smile, she picked up a self-inking quill at their table and began signing his open book. "Alright, Iwin," she glanced up with a little grin as he provided his name and she scribbled a little message along with her signature. To Iwin, May your quaffle always reach the hoops, All the best, Esme Whittebrook. "Here you are.." She looked up with a smile before sliding it over to Muirgen for whom he already expressed an interest in an autograph. Well.. he really was so very nice, wasn't he? She blushed again as he went on about the team and she couldn't help but chuckle at his fainting remark. "Oh, but we couldn't have that now.. how would you get to speak with us if you were unconscious on the ground?" she teased back a bit. "A fan from the start, how lovely. It's so very nice to meet such a dedicated fan." Never miss a game, hm?

Another chuckle left her lips as Muirgen caught on to the fact that he must be Welsh. It wasn't too surprising as many of their fans seemed to be, but it figured that her teammate would pick up on it, knowing her love for all things Welsh. As her friend spoke to Iwin, Esme glanced again to the table next to theirs, giving Jack a small smile through her blush as he tried to remember her name. "Oh, it's Esme.. and really, no worries. We've never formally met and I've only been on the starting line-up this past season." But of course, people knew who he was. He'd been a star player for years.

As she was talking to Jack and still somewhat attuned to Iwin and Muirgen, she noticed someone moving around behind their table. No one else from their team was.. What the -- ? Alright, that Bat really had gone batty, hadn't he? She watched him dancing around her a minute, giving him a slightly bemused smile and nodding a little until.. Oh. My. MERLIN. Esme's eyes got really big and she blushed bright red as he made a heart with his hands, pointing from Iwin to her. She stared at the bat mortified and sort of gave him an awkward pat as he hugged. "Sure, sure.. real funny, Barny." It might have been if she had watched it happen to someone else, but.. Yeah, go hug Muirgen now.

"Hello! I'm sorry, what's your name again? I remember your face but...when one is chasing the snitch, names and faces kind of get blurred when you're searching out the little bugger," he explained with a friendly grin.

So yeah, nothing personal!


OH HEY it was Barny! Haha. Whoever they'd gotten to play him today - Jack never got to see their actual faces - was totally in character and ready to greet the kids (and adults, he was sure). He grinned and high fived the bat back. Georgie would LOVE this - he wondered if Reese would swing by?


OH GOOD! Another fellow Bat! Finally Jack could relax a bit, knowing he wasn't the only one here. "Hi Nia! Yup, all set and ready to go - and it looks like you have a fan," he added with a sly grin as the young boy came up to the tent, clearly awestruck with the presence of her. Hehe. Awwww, he was cute.

Oh my. He really had a bad case of starstruck induced mutism didn't he? Trying to help the poor lad, Jack leaned over. "Is there anyone else you'd like her to sign an autograph for?" he asked. A friend perhaps? A sibling? Anything to evoke a little bit of nerve moment in the boy's brain.


Iwin was suddenly...eyeing the mascot, dancing all close to them and totally being OBNOXIOUS. It made him smirk slightly, but he just laughed deeply at the little heart gestures. "Yes, Barny, you caught me--" he teased, his cheeks only blushing a biiit. Thank Merlin he wasn't as shy as he was as a teen. Or this would be incredibly awkward.

Muirgen was pretty, too. Red hair, pretty eyes...all that fun stuff. He nodded at her question, though, a boyish grin painted across his face quite suddenly. "I'm Welsh, yes...as are you, right, Muirgen?" he asked gently. He would be getting her autograph, next, yep. "Gotta' love th' Welsh, right?" he asked, putting on his accent a little thicker for her. Hehe. He felt smiley now, but he tried to be...cool. Yeah, cool. He couldn't let himself blush again. "I still can't believe I get to--" and the bloody mascot was HUGGING Esme now! Merlin! Iwin eyed the thing and just...coughed. Wow. He could tell poor Esme wasn't having any of this--she seemed to dislike it, actually, and just waved half-heartedly at Barny...and raised an eyebrow at Muirgen.

"So do I get a hug, too? I'm no Fruitbat but..." he shrugged. "I'm decent, right?" he asked, clearly teasing, of course...*brooooows*

And now FINALLY for the autograph! He would bounce more if he was younger--and it was accepted for him to be bouncy. But of course, keep up CHILL appearances, Iwin. He smirked slightly as she tried to catch what she was writing to him, but he would get a proper look once she was all done. Things were sure getting crowded in here, and he thought it made it all the more exciting. The babble of energy around them, even the crazy mascots made this event worth coming to. Not that he had a job to take off from, but if he did, he would have, of course, certainly taken off for it!

Esme was speaking to another Quidditch player..Merlin what was his name? Iwin couldn't remember his name for anything! He smiled and waved at him, though..."After Muirgen gives me her autograph, can I have one of yours?" he asked, super polite and such, you know? He wanted as many as he could get, but he had to get the Catapults' ones first! They were his team!

Professor Pink | Mrs. Bruce Wayne | I'm on a Goat | Glitterpuff | Dumbledore's Defense Squad | BHB

Well, Rapunzel was here. She may be the only Cannons player to make an effort to show, but hopefully she wouldn't be the only fan too. She kept her hands folded neatly at her table, a light smile on her face as she looked around at the nearby players and managers and... by golly, was that a mascot?! AWESOME!

The blonde refrained from beaming and flagging down Barny the Fruitbat. It was still early, and she really wanted to give attention to her fans. If she had any, any at all.... but it was still early! They would come! Right?!

He just knew Esme liked his hug so he gave her another one just so she wouldn't miss his batty mascotness when he moved to another table. Moving back once more he danced around and looked towards the other player Muirgen and hugged her as well. See she liked his batty hugs and she got a big batty high five as well!

Moving away from the table he just so happen to hear the fan (Irwin) say about a hug. Of course Barny knew he meant him. Couldn't leave a fan out now could he. So strutting up to the fan he put him in a big batty hug. There you go man got your hug!

Wiggle wiggle wiggle

Barny wiggled to Nia's words! Awesome players were awesome on the Bat team, but everyone knew that! The fans had to know it. He wiggled around her a bit more before moving to the front of the table and danced around to entertain the fans. Wiggling around he did the moon walk and slid sideways.

Putting his big batty hands up in the air he danced to his own music in his head and in the best batty voice;

"WHO LET THE BATS OUT? FLAP FLAP FLAP FLAP WHO LET THE BATS OUT?" Flapping his arms on the flap parts of course!
