    Challenge 2018-1 update 2, plus topic choices for 2018-2

    "This is all my fault, Harry." Ginny sighed, turning deliberately away from him as she used her wand to sweep away decades of greasy dust from the interior of an old cabinet. "You've not said a thing since, er, you know, so I gather you're quite angry."

    "Angry?? No, no, no." Harry stretched warily away from corner where he was vanishing mouse droppings and peered into the corridor to make sure they were alone. "I was deathly afraid I'd die laughing in front of Filch and get our detentions doubled!"

    "Laughing? Whatever about?"

    With one final glance out the door, Harry turned with an ear-to-ear grin. "Didn't you notice? After your little explosion, Warrington, uh... had a wee bit of an accident."

    "Accident??" Holding a half-dusted urn, Ginny turned to him with wide eyes.

    "You didn't see that wet spot?"

    "Wet...? Oh my!" Failing to stifle a hoot of hysterics, Ginny sputtered straight across the urn, raising an eruption of dust.

    "Mind your step, Gin'." Reaching over, putting a hand on her arm lest she teeter over, Harry eyes turned, incidentally, to the newly exposed bronze surface on the urn.  He stared. "Hey, what's this?"

    "What's what?" Wiping away a couple of tears from her eyes with her free hand, Ginny turned her attention to the partially exposed engraving. "St. Jerome's Church, Godr..." Squinting, she extended a finger to wipe away some remnant dirt, and was about to read the last of the name, when-

    "Gak!!" Both student felt a sharp tug somewhere in the pits of the stomachs, and the filthy store room swirled away into darkness...

    Awards for Challenge 2017-3 & topic for Challenge 2018-1

    Quite a wild ride, this magical creature hunt has been!

    Well, the dust has settled, the beasts are accounted for, and the judging is complete.  Congratulations to all contributors, and especially those who produced our winning stories:

    Let us all offer a round of applause for our wonderful judges:  AS, KH, MG, AM1 & AM2!

    I will mention, for interest's sake, that for every authour who wrote a second story for this challenge, it was the second story that fared best in judging.  Fascinating.  In light of this, from heretoforward, I am happy to now make it standard policy that writers may contribute more than one story to a challenge.

    This makes a nice seque to announcing our voter-selected topic for Challenge 2018-1:

    By accident, Harry and Ginny stumble upon a hidden Portkey and are swept away.  What happens next, and how do they get back?

    Awards will be made for Most Adventuresome, Most Romantic, Best Overall, and People's Choice.  Please stay tuned for a followup announcement in about a week, specifying rules for Challenge 2018-1, and opening the voting process on possible topics for Challenge 2018-2.

    Memoirs of a Red Headed Witch by My Wicked Quill (PG-13)
    Ginny Weasley was always overlooked. Always the youngest, always the smallest, and was never really given the chance to let her voice be heard. But sometimes the best insight comes from those who were always in the background. Her story of redemption, loyalty and love, proves that she was never just the Weasley brothers' little sister.

    All space and time is relative. The only constant is the speed of... fire. Victory in tatters; great deeds undone; the world is unraveling, and Ginny has vanished. Yet somehow, with the shared strengths of a cadre of highly implausible allies, Harry finds the will to persist through a bewildering tangle of centuries and realities, all hurtling toward an explosive, time-bending eruption.
