Name / Year: @Alvar Trickett / 5
First-choice position: Seeker (slash would gladly help out as cocaptain)
Second-choice position: Chaser
RP sample:

As he soared high over the pitch in a gradual upward spiral, Alvar tucked his hair more securely behind his ears. If he moved the wrong way it’d get right back in his eyes again. Assuming he got on the team and wanted to know what was going on ever, he’d have to start tying it back. Ugh. He scanned the air below him with a sour scowl. Not like anyone could see him well enough out here to notice he looked like an idiot, and not like he didn’t usually sort of look like an idiot already... Didn’t matter anyway. He’d look a lot dumber if he missed the Snitch because he couldn’t see his own stupid hand.

He’d been sat there watching morons try out with Donna when it got too bothersome to ignore: the state of Ravenclaw Quidditch was just pathetic. Gryffindor was looking strong as usual, Hufflepuff was training a team that might just make up for their wimpiness with enthusiam. Whatever Slytherin was doing was a secret, which could have been nothing, but just the same couldn’t be discounted. This year in Ravenclaw, though, nobody seemed to care, least of all the captain. If nobody else was going to care, then Alvar felt like he had to.

It felt sort of weird that he cared about that now. That was probably the point of houses in the first place, he thought whenever he noticed how attached to Ravenclaw he’d gotten. Give you something to work for, a collective reputation that mattered—people to be let down if you sucked. Well, Alvar already had a family. He didn’t want to be beholden to some other bunch of losers he apparently had more in common with. He’d spent a great deal of time laughing with Raf about how his house was a bunch of pretentious little nerds, and telling him the best stories to prove it. He wasn’t one of them, that wasn’t his problem. This was different, though. Alvar imagined his friends cracking jokes about their pitiful team full of people who didn’t even try and like... Shit, he wasn’t going to help them be right.

The Snitch caught his eye speeding along the right side of the field. Alvar tensed, but restrained himself and began drifting around in the other direction. There was no way he could try to chase it down on this school broom. (He’d have to figure out how to get a fast enough broom soon that he could. Maybe Flitwick would cough up for the sake of the house? No, wait, it was Winchester in charge now. Ugh, Alvar didn’t know him from Adam.)

Nobody else seemed to have eyes, thank goodness. Alvar increased his speed a little, smoothly streaking over and down. He kept his gaze locked on the little golden glint. Judging its trajectory, judging his own... And zipping forward at just the right second with a burst of speed, snatching it right out of its arc.

He brushed his stupid hair out of his face with the back of his fist, the little wings stuck out of either side batting frantically against his forehead. “Williams?” he called. She’d better have seen that.
