#AtoZChallenge : To Quidditch

Gif source

Dear Quidditch,
I’ve loved sports from the time that I was a kid. I’ve
played whatever sports I could while I was in school and college and even now.
But if there is one game that fascinates me and that I’d love to play, it is
you. But you are the one game that I will never be able to play. Sad isn’t it?
Being unable to play the game you love.
Let me go back to the time when I first got to know about
you. Though most Harry Potter fans have read the books first and then watched
the movies, I am different. My first introduction to Harry Potter was through
the first movie. But do you know what part of that movie I loved the most? You!
Scoring goals by throwing the quaffles, escaping from the badgers and most
importantly catching the golden snitch, it was all so exciting. And once I
started reading the books, I was more in awe of you. Ever since, I have wanted
to play Quidditch. 
But the sad part is that I won’t be able to play because I
can’t fly. I’m not a witch who can fly on a broomstick. Yes I know that there
is Muggle Quidditch but I don’t want anything but the original. I think I would
have made a good chaser or may be a beater or wait may be a seeker. I’m
confused. I need to try each of those positions before I can decide. 
“Don’t chase
the Quaffle if you can see the Snitch”
Like most games, you too teach us a lot of lessons. Focussing
on what is important, being alert, standing up for your team are the things
that we need to incorporate in daily life. I loved watching Gryffindor play and
I always wish I could be a part of the Gryffindor team. Will I ever be able to
play this beautiful game? Can I somehow become a witch on a broomstick for a
day?
Your Seeker, 
Reema

I’m taking up the #AtoZChallenge and my theme is “A letter for a letter”. So make sure you read
all the letters from A to Z.

    A good choice for Q! These Muggles I tell you play such boring sports, nothing to beat the fervor of Quidditch! Cheers 🙂

      Exactly Kala! I so wish I could play Quidditch.

  3. I think if Quidditch were real it would be more popular than the NFL. Amazing how completely realized the game is in the books and movies. Love your theme!

    Brilliant take on Q, Reema. And yeah, I wish we could play Quidditch.

    1. reemwrites says:

      Thank you Ramya 🙂

  5. I played a quiz on Buzzfeed, and they said I would be the Ravenclaw Seeker. 😀
    The only thing that disappointed me in the movies was that they hardly showed many quidditch matches in the fifth movie. And the description in the book is so thrilling! Especially all those Snitches which Malfoy just misses!

    Glad you wrote about Quidditch for your Q for post. Q is one of those letters which always gets people fretting, and you've done a good job with it! 🙂

    1. reemwrites says:

      Yes even I was disappointed when there were hardly any matches in the movies. And didn't I tell you that I had some Harry Potter stuff lined up? 😛
      Thank you 🙂

    That was an amazing take on letter 'Q'.
    I share your desire to be able to fly on a broomstick like a witch and have fun playing something so extraordinary. You're one dedicated Harry Potter fan, aren't you?

    1. reemwrites says:

      Thank you and yes I am a dedicated Harry Potter fan 😀

  7. This is such a Candid letter Darling , infact all your letters are 🙂

    Harry Potter sure made us wish for a lot of unattainable things – flying on broomsticks, portkeys, and quiddich being just a few of them.

    Cheers!

  9. Parul says:

    1. reemwrites says:

    I haven't read Harry Potter so I did not understand the game at all.

    But I'd love to fly on a broom someday. 🙂

    1. reemwrites says:

      Wouldn't it be cool? Flying on a broom..

  12. reemwrites says:

    Thank you 🙂 And yeah game is on! 🙂
