Photo 23 Nov 198 notes George is three months into his ‘research’ trip around the world when he stumbles upon Edmonton. He follows a crowd of Muggles in orange and blue oversized shirts out of sheer curiosity. He can’t quite help himself, it’s comforting to be around this many people; their loud conversations are blissful white noise. He’s not even sure why he’s still here but apparently there’s a Muggle sport about to start and he’s confounded the ticketer at the entrance before he’s even really aware that he’s done it. He stops inside the bathroom to transfigure one of his gloves to match the jerseys that the Muggles are all wearing. It’s comfortingly garish, without nearing the blinding all-over orange of the Chudley Cannons. There’s even space for Weasley 02 on the back. It makes him smile, a little, like his mum’s christmas jumpers always had.

The Muggles are all congregating around an ice rink. The stadium is impressive and rapidly filling with people. He finds an empty seat near the top on one of the sides and settles in to watch, placing his other transfigured glove on the seat next to him. Weasley 01 stares up at him from the identical jersey and he pats it absently, ‘I think you’ll enjoy this, Fred’.

The game is rapid. He’s pretty sure it’s faster than Quidditch and he finds himself grinning and whooping along with everyone else, despite his ignorance of the rules. There’s definitely a keeper and quite a lot of them appear to be chasers. It’s not until there’s a fight breaking out that he’s decided that the beaters are the best. Muggles have definitely outdone themselves.

Three days later he’s off to some place called Philadelphia where, he’s reliably informed, there’s a team that plays in a jersey as hideous as the Cannons, and whose season is going about as well as the Cannons is. He’s already transfigured Fred’s jersey in anticipation. Maybe this research trip isn’t so bad after all.
