[Beauxbâtons - en français]

Since I'm avoiding my transfig homework a bit restless I started jotting down thoughts about the last game and our next one to share with Anais, but then I figured maybe it would be more helpful to get everyone's perspective and see what we noted or might have missed.

Both keepers improved from their previous efforts, but we still have the best keeper in this competition. Don't start gloating now, Aidan.

Corrie keeps getting injured, do we go after her as an easy target or focus on the other two that can clearly do damage without her?

I think Salem's seeker was maybe a bit overwhelmed but if she stays in the starting position and settles into it I don't think we'll be able to take advantage of it.

We'll need to keep an eye on James at all times, he hasn't missed yet and to me that makes him our biggest threat. What do you guys think?


The game of this weekend was well played from both teams. Congratulations Durmstrang!

I am glad the weather is at least a little warmer now. I am wanting to swim again but not yet, I think. It is still the season for being inside reading stories by the fire and bothering team mates.

Because I miss the sun the way it is at home I am giving pictures of how it looks in the light in summer.

It is silly maybe, because I do not see them when I am at Beauxbȃtons either, but being so very far from home has made me quite miss my brothers, so I will show them to you all. They are mostly lovely and often silly and are very good brothers, a lot of the time. And they taught me to punch and play poker so I usually forgive them when they are not.

Augustijn is 23 and wants to take over as cellar master from my Papa one day. He has a guitar that he cannot play because he thinks girls will like it if they think he can.

Roland is 19 and is going to study literature and international relations at university. He is not so good at cards as he thinks he is.

Bonjour, mes amis!

I am thinking Hogwarts will be a fascinating place to spend the year, but so cold! Has Scotland met the sun? They should be introduced, I am sure they would be great friends. I am very glad no one has said we must eat haggis. As long as there are still croissants! Without them I shall surely wither. Or get very grumpy and smack things with my bat, which might not be very ladylike but is very affective.

What do you all know about the Multicultural Relations class? I think they could be extremely interesting. A good chance to learn more about each other than just food. Which is very important, of course, and French is the best.

Since I don’t want to write one thousand words, I shall give you all a picture of me instead, so you know who I am when our carriage lands.

Wave your wands, s’il vous plait? )

Alors beaucoup de gens ici ont des parents qui ont joué de Quidditch! Peut-être que je vais attendre jusqu'à après They've m'a vu jouer pour leur dire que je n'ai jamais vu un manche à balai qui pouvait voler jusqu'à ce que je 11.

Ce sera la même chose qu'être juste à Beauxbȃtons, je suis donc à ne pas manquer Maman et Papa et mes frères, pas plus que la normale. À côté, j'ai beaucoup raté mes amis! Il sera ainsi beaucoup de nouveaux à faire, je l'espère. Et je passe une année entière Marshall avec Dex et de jouer contre de très bonnes équipes. Didi a raison, il s'agit d'une aventure pour nous. Je suis très fier d'être dans le premier Tournoi Junior International de Quidditch.

So many people here have parents who have played Quidditch! Perhaps I’ll wait till after they’ve seen me play to tell them I never saw a broomstick that could fly until I was 11.

It will be just the same as being at Beauxbȃtons, so I am not to miss Maman and Papa and my brothers any more than normal. Besides, I have very much missed my friends! There will be so many new ones to make, I hope. And I shall spend a whole year with Dex and playing against very good teams. Didi is right, this is such an adventure for us. I am very proud to be in the first Junior International Quidditch Tournament.
