Dear Beater in Blue and Bronze,
Wow, your role model? Wicked! Don’t think I’ve ever been that before.
Well, it sounds like you’re a pretty fantastic player, well done! Don’t let your friend get you down, because if Ravenclaw is still anything like it was when I was at Hogwarts, they could use the talent. And if your friend feels threatened by your skill, that’s good, right? She’s an opponent, after all.
Yeah, I was in that spot before, as much as I hate to admit it, but especially when you’re in school those things are important! I mean, it’s Quidditch! So I understand where your friend is coming from. Slytherins always want to be the best, so I’m not surprised that she’s acting like that. In my fourth year, I nearly ruined my friendship with Harry because I felt like he was forgetting about me.
So my advice would be to make sure you remind her that you’re still friends, outside of Quidditch. You’re in different houses, so the time you get to spend together is important and if it’s all Quidditch all the time, she’s bound to feel threatened. Remind her that she’s good too (unless she really isn’t) and maybe you can practice together. But really, every time the Triwizard Tournament was mentioned, I felt sick, so you might want to avoid talk of Quidditch altogether. Your friendship probably doesn’t center on Quidditch. Your friend knows that, but she needs to know that YOU know that. If Harry had just said to me “Ron, this Triwizard Tournament is bollocks. Let’s go to Zonko’s and hex Malfoy,” I think my fourth year would have been a lot more enjoyable.
So you can try that, and let me know how it goes. I’m not used to giving advice, and I want to know if it works! I could be an agony aunt. An agony auror? Nah, better not.
