The Interview Challenge Update #1
Security was totally the Twins idea.

Everybody that was invited was showing up in ones and twos at one of the bigger rooms at the The Leaky Cauldron. George, or was it Fred, and Lee Jordan met each person at the entrance of the room, shaking hands and thanking them for coming. After a little chatter, they were led to a table full of used and discarded kitchen utensils. They were the Portkeys that would take the guests to the actual location of the main event. Each person was to take one item. Then Fred, or was it George, touched the hand holding the utensil with his wand, it glowed a light blue for a couple of seconds, and then they disappeared.

All but two individuals made it to the event. One was a party crasher who just happened to be in The Leaky Cauldron for a couple of pints. The other was a reporter for the Daily Prophet. How he found his way in was not known at the time. But neither of them were getting out of their temporary holding cell for the next 24 hours.

It was later revealed that the utensils were not really Portkeys at all. It was the invisible sticking powder on Fred, or was it George’s, hand. He shook hands with only two people that day.

Authors can come up with many ways to tell this story. I hope this will give you some ideas to go on.

I really wanted to write an entry to this challenge but sadly I'm too busy for my own good =[ Oh, and you spelt Leaky wrong in the second paragraph

Is life just getting the better of you this time? And, thanks.

Ladies, gentlemen and...those...those of us who fill in the rest of the greeting group!

I am learning to read books without big, bright pictures. This Challenge is directed not so much at a "News" context, as it is at a different means of presentation.

Come on people! Who would interview Harry? With whom would you enjoy listening or reading an interview? They've sat down vampire's for Pete's sake (I finally met Pete--yawn). What is the next step? Have you ever pictured yourself the reporter? Have you ever wanted to have fun with one of them?

Oh...and by the way--Happy Birthday Emma! Regardless of our not being a Hermione site; we hope you have a great day. We get to pay taxes.--Eric

Kezzabear - sounds like a perfect opportunity to do it right your way.



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2009.04.16 - 09:04AM to say:

Thanks for the opportunity but, I don't think I will. Hopefully someone out there is inspired.
