didn’t the goblet of fire cover this

because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch

actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?

Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.

Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.

And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.

We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.

Ginny doesn’t get much appreciation. She was one of the most skilled students in DA and she helped Neville and Luna bring it back to rebel against Death Eaters in her sixth year. Let’s not forget how she helped Gryffindor win the Quidditch Cup when she was only fifteen, and how did she manage to do that? BECAUSE SHE’S A GOD WHEN PLAYING QUIDDITCH. She was able to secretly practice with her brothers brooms, that shows how clever Ginny was to use them without getting caught. And even though she had an epic crush on Harry when she was younger, she decided she was done waiting for him to notice her and that moping around was pointless. So she dated other guys and wasn’t ashamed at all. Ginny was also accepted into the Slug Club during her fifth year. Slughorn only accepted witches and wizards who he thought were determined and talented muggle fuckers. GINNY EVEN SURVIVED LITERALLY EVERY BATTLE THAT WAS CAUSED BY HARRY AND VOLDEMORT AND PUT UP WITH MAJOR BULLSHIT.
Ginny Weasley is a sassy bamf and no one can tell me other wise goodbye.

Not to mention that she got possessed by a part of Voldemort’s soul in her first year and managed to survive and I assume continue with her school work seeing as she moved to second year.
