And The Winners Are...
The first week was a grand slam with fifteen stories submitted. Our twelve judges had a really hard time to judge who had the best week. It was good to see some new author entries this time around. I hope it’s a good start of things to come. And now the results…

The award for Best Overall and Best Relationship goes to:
”Time of my Life” by Evie_S

The award for Best Angst, a tie, goes to:
”A Taste of the Dream” by Sanidad
and
”Our Buried Life” by the mystery tramp

The Best Humor goes to:
”Faking It” by lilyevans_Jan30

The winning stories are now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section. Those of you that have multiple chapters or need to do some editing may continue at this time. The Challenge category is back open. If your story is completed, please ensure it is edited and YES, as completed.

The 2008-3 Challenge is coming to a living room near you. Everybody loves to have relatives drop in unexpectedly.

I would like to thank my twelve judges for this Challenge; BG, BK, CP, CQ, CW, DS, JL, LW, NS, WC, YC, and ZA. You know who you are. Thank you very much for all that reading and judging.

PS: Some authors have asked if I would tell them how well they did in the judging. If you wish, e-mail me and I will tell you your results.

PPS: Barrier, no, anglia, Ginny, train and leaving the station on time. You don’t want to be late your first date...er... day

Thanks to all the judges for their hard work - this was a great field of entries!

Kids vs. parents, huh? Something tells me we are going to see Lily and James in this next challenge.

Congrats to all winners!

Congratulations!!!



Fearlessvenom1 came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.15 - 11:15PM to say:

Yay for Evie_S Congrats to all winners



Zapatorf came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.15 - 11:24PM to say:

I can't believe I forgot to congratulate the winners. I frankly couldn't have picked them better myself.



Jim McGuffin came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 01:50AM to say:

Maybe lilyevans_Jan30, but which Lily -- the one born on January 30th or the one with the middle name Luna? We may possibly see all three generations in a challenge like this one! It's been ages since I actually wrote a challenge entry, but I love time travel stories, so maybe I'll try to enter! Once again, congrats to the award winners!



lilyevans_Jan30 came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 06:56AM to say:

Jim McGuffin Hmmm, I didn't think about that . . . very interesting. Now I am just waiting for for Spenser to come up with a songfic comment. "Parents Just Don't Understand" anyone?



Zapatorf came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 10:14AM to say:

I think the key question here is: who are the parents? If that can be figured out, the rest will surely fall into place. Personally, I'm hoping for a little bit of Weasley and Potter fun.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 10:36AM to say:

I am so thrilled about the Challenge turnout...I'm thrilled to beers! Fifteen stories was fantastic! Let's try for twenty with the next one!

A generational story possibly involving time travel? Hmm...I'm posting the final chapter of a book-length later today, but it isn't humor. Let's see here. I still have that suped up Anglia from the surfer story...install a flux capacitor...an eight-track tape player with the Bee Gees. It could work.

Was that a request I heard for another song parody? On all over it.



lilyevans_Jan30 came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 11:48AM to say:

Spenser that wasn't a request - it was a flat out challenge! -Lilyevans_Jan30



Torak came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 06:14PM to say:

Bee Gees... got to have some non-standard tunes in there, too. Islands In The Stream, perhaps?



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 06:29PM to say:

How is this?

Well, I'm gonna throw a hex...yeah I'm gonna run and howl!
About-a workin' so hard just tryin' to earn that O.W.L.

Well I went to see my boyfriend. I hoped to get a date...
But my 'fessor says "No...you gotta study late!"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do;
'Cause there aint no cure for the Hogwarts' blues!

Well, my mum and dad told me "Girl...(they couldn't keep from naggin'),
Best apply yourself...learn 'bout Uncle Charlie's Dragon."

Yeah, I didn't go to class; told Sprout I was sick!
"Now you can't use that broom 'cause you didn't work a lick!"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do;
'Cause there ain't no cure for the Hogwarts' blues!

Gonna take two days; wanna play a little Quidditch!
I'm gonna sneak my team into the Hogsmeade village

So I went to my prefect, but she said: "Mate...
I'd love to help you girl--you're too young to Apparate."

Sometimes I wonder what I'm-a gonna do;
'Cause there ain't no cure for the Hogwarts' blues!

Fabulous!!!



janepotter came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.16 - 11:36PM to say:

Wow, Spencer. But really, Kids Vs. Parents and Back To The Future? It's like James and Harry are going to have a Seeker-off or something...



Zen came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.17 - 06:06AM to say:

Kids VS. Parents, Back to the future - - I actually thought of Harry and Ginny, and their kids there. *shrugs* Not sure, though...a time travel story sounds better, ^_^



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.17 - 07:55AM to say:

Oh, come now. You know it's not going to be that simple.



Zapatorf came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.17 - 03:57PM to say:

hehehe..... thanks for putting another grin on my face, Spencer.



Yunchao came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.17 - 06:31PM to say:

Thanks to all the authors who wrote for the challenge. It was a real pleasure reading and judging all of the entries. Yunchao



Ellery came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.18 - 12:31PM to say:

Kids VS. Parents Quiddich match!



Dianne came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.19 - 03:31PM to say:

It would be nice to see more reviews from judges left for the authors. Congratulations everyone!



Yunchao came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.19 - 11:15PM to say:

Alright Dianne, I'll be sure to leave reviews in the next challenge.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.20 - 10:40AM to say:

Hello there True Believers! Once again I have had my trusty hacking-elves break into the Challenge mainframe computer for a sneak peak at the next contest. Since I've never been wrong (apart from those times I don't want to talk about), I know that all of you are again anxious to hear what we discovered.

While trying to perform a very delicate time traveling spell, Seamus Finnegan accidentally causes the potion to explode. This results in every Witch and Wizard in England over the age of seventeen being transformed into infants. Harry, Ginny and the whole Scooby gang must deal with faculty diapers and trying to burp Hagrid, while simultaneously battling Baby Voldemort. He's not only teething--he absolutely refuses to eat his strained carrots!I have to admit that Tom demonstrated absolute genius this time. Suggestions that he leaves me false, misleading computer files are absolutely ridiculous.



lilyevans_Jan30 came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.20 - 02:07PM to say:

Uhh, Spenser? I think you have been watchng too many Disney movies. That was the plot of the oh-so-memorable Sky High, starring Kurt Russel as an aging superhero whose Squib-like son uncovers an evil plot to turn everyone on the side of good back into babies so that they can be raised by dark forces. Nice try, though!



lilyevans_Jan30 came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.20 - 02:09PM to say:

Well, okay. Maybe I'm the one watching too many Disney movies. Keep on hacking, Spense.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2008.05.20 - 03:30PM to say:

I remember that Disney movie, but I doubt that's what Tom's admin-elves had in mind. They spend a little time in Florida, so Ponce De Leon and that Fountain of Youth thing must have popped into someone's head. Someone just ordered three pallets of baby food for the SIYE executive cafeteria though. Now I know I'm right.
