Would You Rather… Be a Chaser or a Keeper?
With the release of Mudbloods quickly approaching, Tori suggested we do a Quidditch WOULD YOU RATHER. Last week she asked: Would you rather be a beater or a seeker? This week we are looking at the other two positions on a Quidditch team:
CHASER: The oldest position in the game of Quidditch. The main point scorers, other than the seeker. Typically swift and agile flyers. Known Chasers: Ginny Weasley/Potter, Angelina Johnson, Dean Thomas, Marcus Flint. Read more on Harry Potter Wiki.
1. You get to score points.
2. You are the main focal point of the event—until the Seeker catches the Snitch.
3. There is a lot of fast flying.
4. If you’re good enough you could score enough points that, even if the other team catches the Snitch, you still win.
1. When you miss, everyone is watching.
2. Being the target of Bludgers.
3. If the other team’s Seeker catches the Snitch, all your efforts are more than likely wasted.
4. If your Seeker catches the Snitch, they get most of the glory.
KEEPER: Position created around the 13th century. Guards the three goal posts. Wears the most padding. Well-built, athletic players. Known Keepers: Oliver Wood, Ron Weasley, Cormac McLaggen. Read more on Harry Potter Wiki.
1. You get to block the other team from scoring.
2. Not as much flying.
3. You are the only one on the team.
4. You get extra padding.
1. You don’t get to fly around as much.
2. If you let too many Quaffles in, they’ll make a nasty song about you.
3. If you block too many, the Beaters might try to take you out.
4. Generally speaking, unless your team is abysmal, you don’t get a lot of the fanfare.
There you have it, so WOULD YOU RATHER… Be a Chaser or a Keeper? Respond in the discussion section or via Twitter with #MNWYR.
