Martin hadn’t known that. Why hadn’t he known that? The Hufflepuff followed all the goings-on of the school quidditch teams religiously. How could he not know Jim was playing a different position this year? “Oh, really? What are you playing this year, then?” Mentally Martin went through all the ways he could possibly help. If Jim was a seeker this year Martin would be the most helpful, obviously, though he had a slight moral compunction against helping.
"Keeper," Jim said with a shrug. He didn’t want to tell Martin he’d literally given his position up for someone in particular to take. He might’ve gone for something like seeker or chaser but at the time Keeper was what was left, and he supposed there wasn’t much to it? "Certainly not as active or engaging as beater but thought to give it a try." Jim looked to Martin with a small smile. "Maybe you can help me though. I know you don’t exactly deal with keepers at all but I trust you to know how to play all the positions pretty well."
