First Time For Everything Challenge (2019-2) Results
First of all I'd just like to give a big shout-out to every single author who entered this challenge as the judges have mentioned what a high standard of stories there is, and how difficult it was to judge as each author put their own unique take on the prompt given. Without further ado I can announce the winners are as follows-
I would personally like to give an Honorable Mention to Second Chances and First Occasions by Rogan which came extremely close and I was told would have won if there had been a Most Romantic category this time.
Huge thank you to everyone who has taken part, and to the judges for what was definitely a difficult task - AM, JG, MJ, SR
I will be back in the next day or so with the new challenge to keep your eyes peeled!

Buried Gems 07-2019
Today SIYE has its 17th birthday. I would like to take this opportunity to nominate the very first SIYE story as the next Buried Gem.
Unfortunately, the story with SIYE story-Id #1 is gone a long time ago. If anyone here still remembers the story, please let us know and tell us about it.
17 years ago, on August 3, in 2002, Siye went online.
Seventeen years is an eternity in the era of the internet, a period many other fanfiction sites were very popular but sadly have disappeared again.
Our thanks go to all who have launched this site and have helped to keep it working over the years. Special thanks, of course, go to all the authors and readers whose love for our favourite couple keeps the page alive.
Let's hope for many more years, filled with entertaining stories about the life of our favourite couple.

Buried Gems 06-2019
The Buried Gem 06-2019 is a gem in two ways. Not only is the story a gem, but the author is an exceptional gem, too. Her beta skills are praised in almost every other story I read, and her support of other authors makes her an important pillar of the Harry/Ginny ship.
Gifts are precious things, no matter who the giver is. Gifts can be material, but there are emotional gifts as well. In this series of three stories, Ginny and Harry give and receive gifts. What these gifts are, only they will tell.
Summary: It's Harry's sixth year and Ginny Weasley has been "Harry-Watching" from afar. She doesn't like what she sees and decides to do something about it. Will her actions result in failure or will she and Harry become closer?
Summary: It's Harry's sixth year and Ginny Weasley's "Harry-Watching" has paid off. In this sequel to "You're Still You" the two teens explore their new relationship while dealing with the challenges of life threatened by war.
Summary: Summer at the Dursleys’ is typical for Harry Potter who hopes his stay with his relatives will only last two weeks at most. In this sequel to You’re Still You and New Year, New Hope Harry learns that his role as “savior” of the Wizarding world is more complicated than he thought and that he needs his friends and mentors more than he ever imagined.
If you enjoyed the trilogy, check out Arnel's other stories, especially her For Love of Family, part of her Family Series, where a freak accident changes Auror Harry Potter’s life and tests the love of those around him.
