Some of you may know me, some of you may not. If you’ve spent any significant amount of time on the internet quidditch community, then you’ve likely come across me at some point. I comment on everything. I was once a very vocal opponent of the IQA/USQ and just a very outspoken person as a whole….

MUDBLOODS: A Film About Quidditch is now available on iTunes and VOD! Watch this inspirational, action-filled documentary TODAY: http://bit.ly/itunesmudbloods

This is a huge deal for real-life quidditch - the first full length feature film to tackle the sport as a documentary topic (no pun intended). 
Farzad and Eric (the film’s producer and director) have been fine-tuning and crafting the story of UCLA at the fifth World Cup for three years now, tweaking the story, graphics, animations, sound and color editing until it perfectly captured the spirit of the game and the teams and the people involved. I’ve never seen a more accurate depiction of quidditch and everything it represents. 
An early concern that I (and others) had was that quidditch in 2011 would look outdated today, but it does not. UCLA played very strong quidditch in 2011 and the way that Farzad and Eric cut and edited the footage (along with fantastic original music composed for the film) gives every match an edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding epic quality. 
I would highly recommend that any player, former-player, coach, captain, fan, family-member, supporter of quidditch check this movie out. It will give you chills and remind you why we all play this wonderful game. 
It’s available starting TODAY on itunes and the mudbloods website - follow the links above for access!

I love this sport.

quidsecrets:

Please regale me with that story again of how you kissed a ball into the hoops because the team you were playing was so easy, and then talk about how you just want to see all quidditch players get better and more confident. I’m so. Fucking. Interested.”

This is the sassiest and best quidsecret I have EVER read.

quidsecrets:

I truly regret not buying the Blacktips perk to get a shot to beat Evan Bell in the face. I missed out.”

Yes. Yes you did.

quidsecrets:

Let’s be real, a lot of females that play quidditch aren’t all that cute. But what is really shitty is when you have girls who aren’t even that great of players getting a lot of attention because they’re attractive and they flaunt it. Getting popularity in this community…

Our new Officials Manager Brandon Kreines is fairly new to the sport of quidditch, despite having over 10 years of experience reffing for other sports and managing employees in various businesses. He documented his first tournament experience at the 2014 Global Games in Burnaby, Canada:

" ‘Yea. Bludger control is so critical and obvious that it’s not even really strategy,’ says Dan, shattering my ego in between bites of a sandwich. “

This is the greatest sentence ever. 

Thanks for your comment about long distance relationships. That anon was an ass. Glad you called them out.

Word, yo.

"I don’t understand all these Quidditch long distance relationships. Seeing each other every few months, or even once a month, is not a relationship. Texting is not a relationship. You’re only going to get the version of them they want you to see. Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that you don’t get to date the person you want".

It’s ok if you don’t want to be in a long distance relationship, but you have ZERO right to judge those that do. You’re not in the relationship, so stop pretending like you understand how it works.
