Newspaper Headlines

Postby Orick » Fri Sep 18, 2015 3:38 pm

So here's my little idea. A lot of us want to participate in roleplaying, but not necessarily have time to write longer posts. My solution for that? Newspaper headlines!

In this topic EVERYONE might submit a fictional Headline from one of Magical newspapers. The headline should refer to recent events (interesting matches, trades, contracts) or can be completely fictional (i.e. gossips about Quidditch players romances). It doesn't have to refer to your team! Anythng that catches your eye might be posted here. If you want to post more headlines, make sure not to spam - put them in one post. And if you feel like expanding the headline, adding a short "article" or it's highlights: feel free to do so! This way we can create our own little Quidditch Newspapers experience.

The headlines should follow a simple pattern:

Code: Select all

Season Number, Matchday, Newspaper Title: Headline


For example:

Season 37, Matchday 17, "Quidditch Daily": TERI DEMERY JOINS REDDITCH REDRUM

Season 37, Matchday 17, "Zoom Quidditch": DIVIDED BY SNITCH! PHOENIXES 350:390 MIFFLINS

Here are some newspapers you might want to use, but feel free to come up with your own:

London Quidditch - a local Quidditch magazine about Quidditch in London
Zoom Quidditch - The biggest Quidditch magazine in UK
Daily Prophet - The biggest newspaper of the Magic World
Quidditch Daily: An everyday Quidditch newspaper, focusing not only on the main leagues, but also on the lower ones
WITCH! - Gossips about magical world celebrities!
Quibbler - Wizard tabloid, known for it's extravagance.

It's not a bad idea indeed. I'll create a page for my team too I hope...but my english is not great. So....yeah...this might work as well.

I love this idea! I will be creating an article very soon.
Ew why was my signature so cheesy?

Really, song lyrics? Yeesh, I haven't left all of my cringiness behind. I promise, it's mostly gone now.

I should have at least quoted a less dramatic song.

Image That is a very serious accusation...

You'll get it if you've seen and/or read Harry Potter.
