Deathly Hallows Challenge Update #1
Reluctantly, Harry agreed to let the Royal Academy inspect the three Deathly Hallows. But before he would send out his reply, he had some work to do. Knowing what could happen if someone was to get their hands on all three Hallows; Harry started working on some security measures. He thought about the perfect hiding places for each item. He did not want any of the Hallows to be together. That was one of his conditions. He would only allow one item to be investigated at a time, in a secure location of his choosing. Britain’s Crown Jewels would not be more protected than Harry’s Hallows.

The Challenge story can be told in many ways. This is just one example to get you thinking.

This was a different example than we're used to seeing.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.11 - 07:50AM to say:

muggle_born - gotta keep things interesting, mate.

I recall someone mentioning the best place to safeguard certain items. Another plot bunny has popped into my head. This one is taking longer than I expected. I want number fifty to be really good, and I'm also busy doing rewrites after all the hate mail I've received this past week. I think this is going to be a great Challenge.



Perspicacity came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.11 - 07:18PM to say:

People give you hate mail, Spense Hemmingway? Here I thought I was the only one not feeling the love. I think I'm going to play in this challenge after all; I've got about 8k down, maybe 13k total for the piece, and a pretty decent story concept. I doubt it'll poll well in the final balloting (the site prefers fluff and dislikes suspense/horror), but it's the right story to tell with this material.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.12 - 10:37AM to say:

I...uhm...sort of killed off Spenser in the preface of my latest submission. People didn't seem to like that.

I personally love fluff if it's attached to a good story. The Challenge is judged on quality, not genre. Some great tales of suspense have one more than once.

ive got to agree with that fluff comment.but evry1 has there own tastes

"The Challenge story can be told in many ways. This is just one example to get you thinking." Jeez...Ollivander must be typing that in his sleep!



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.14 - 01:25PM to say:

Circling Red - or until you meet the Challenge and submit a story of your own.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.14 - 01:26PM to say:

P.S. - I did change one word...



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.15 - 10:10AM to say:

I'm finally finished, but in the Beta Reader process later today with my bartender. Yes, I am serious. He was an English major, and I prefer to work face-to-face. I hope everyone enjoys my little twist on things; no one is dead yet. I also brought back a couple favorite original characters of mine as well, but wrote them in so as not to be too confusing. I hope to post this evening (my time). This was a really fun one to write.-- Eric



Circling Red came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.15 - 05:38PM to say:

Ollivander--I would, but I'm too critical of my own writing. I get a great start and then it fades. I wouldn't want to submit a story just to discontinue it. I don't like it when others do it, I would hate it if I did.



Circling Red came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.15 - 05:39PM to say:

P.S.-- Did you? Huh. =0)



M_And came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.16 - 01:10AM to say:

I couldn't help but notice Eric's several references to miffed fans of Spencer's demise and not have the image of the angry mob with torches coming to the castle to get Dr. Frankenstein (aka our good friend Eric). But here's a thought to cheer up said good friend, you (speaking directly to Eric now) created a series and Character that has become so beloved that people are actually willing to threaten you with bodily harm for killing off the main character who in many ways transended the supposed "main pairing". If that's not love...then I don't know what is. Just my thought for the day. Feel free to debate that one. - Mike



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.16 - 10:47AM to say:

Thanks Mike! Again, the story is set more than fifty years after the final battle. I have a lot of time to utilize the character still, and I will always keep the emphasis on Harry and Ginny.

I'm sorry for the delay with my Challenge story. My bartender/beta had an especially busy time at our pub, and couldn't break away to work with me. I'm off (don't say it) to have coffee with him now.--Eric



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.02.18 - 10:24AM to say:

The more that I look at this Challenge, the more I am seeing it as an us versus them story. The entry I posted does take this approach, but in a little different way. I think that the Academy can fit in nicely, taking the place of the currupt Ministry we saw in the books. The difference now is that the government is a third party, which can come out on either side. Shacklebolt is friend to Harry and Ginny, but he is not the entire bureaucracy. What role and degree of power do we see with the Academy? The war may be over, but we've been given another battle to wage, and it is one of wits. We still have plenty of time to put out some great entries.--Eric
