And I've learned something--it's really hard to find a good quidditch team to play for in your area!
So I figured I'd create my own fantasy league and let them have a match. And WHO better to be on my team than the...
DISNEY PRINCES AND PRINCESSES!!!!!!!!!!! And because dating teammates is frowned upon in our fantasy league, we've had to split up most of the happily ever after couples!
Team 1: Weasely is Our Lion King
Keeper, Beast: Because let's face it....NOTHING is getting past this hulking piece of fury love, unless Belle makes a play...
Beater 1, Anastasia: Ok, we know she's not REALLY a Disney princess but she's awesome and you know she'd make a great beater, she practically broke Dimitri's face! But she'll have to be careful she isn't disqualified for sending her bludgers below the belt...
Team 2: BEAUTY AND THE BEATERS
Keeper, Prince Eric: Of all our princes....Eric is maybe the least athletic...face it, Ariel does all his fighting, so we thought it was safest to keep him on defense. Let's just hope he manages to block better than he handles staying on his ship.
Chaser 2, Prince Charming: Not only is he good at returning glass slippers to their owners, but he can return the quaffle to the goal, over and over again. His only problem: throwing it into the right goal (he didn't exactly slip those slippers on the right feet the first...100 times)...
Beater 1, Prince Philip: He took on Milificent and barely knew Aurora, so we know he's tough, but he does have a tendency to break into awkward songs at inapropriate moments.
So what happens?
Team Captains Ariel and Belle shake and...oooooh gross! Ariel had some seaweed on her hands and now Belle is sliding around on her broomstick. Yikes!
But wait...it looks like there's some real action happening, Belle is heading right for the Beast and...she scores! One point for Beauty and the Beaters! Weasely is our Lion King is going to have a tough time catching up, especially with one sleeping player.
And then...Pocahontas has the quaffle and she shoots and SCORES! Prince Eric...who had you distracted? We have a tie! The match is heating up.
Prince Charming nearly takes a bludger to the head, but Prince Philip beats it away. Just in time! And now Cinderella has the Quaffle and is attempting to score...but wait...she's...she's sweeping up some chocolate frogs that jumped into the game. And now...
Ariel is zooming! She sees the snitch! Aladdin is off too and they're neck and neck. But Ariel pulls ahead! She's lighter on her broomstick on account of having no legs. She makes a dive and grabs...and...and it's a spork! Not the snitch. But Aladdin has the snitch and....he's dissapeared from the pitch with it.
So it's a draw?
What do you think? Would Weasely is our Lion King win the Quidditch Tournament or Beauty and the Beaters? Who would you put on your fantasy Quidditch Team?
