Prank Wars Challenge (2009-5)
At any one of the many birthday parties celebrated at the Burrow, there are always discussions of one kind or another. And if George is in the group, he usually can change the discussion to pranks or a new WWW product. One particular discussion involving Harry & Ginny, Ron & Hermione, Neville & Luna, and George & his current girlfriend, got a little heated about who was really the best prankster. So a challenge was issued forth.

The Challenge is to write a story involving:

1. One and/or “two-person” teams in the group must pull a prank on another one or “two- person” team in the group. Example, if Hermione and Neville team up, they have to prank someone or a “two-person” team. That means there will be between 4 to 8 pranks pulled, depending on how many two-person teams there are.
2. If two people make a team, we must know who they are before the start of the pranking war. Couples may NOT team up, no Harry/Ginny or Neville/Luna, etc.
3. The planned pranks must be quantified or documented somehow; we need to know who is going to do what so we know it happened the way it’s supposed to.
4. Other people outside the group may innocently help or assist as requested but may not know why or that it involves a prank.
5. One planned prank is to go wrong and backfire on the pranksters or prank the wrong person(s).
6. Two pranks, successful or not, must be the center of the story. The outcome must be discussed somehow and the winner(s) get some kind of award.
7. The time frame is after everybody has completed school and the pranking must be done during a specifically stated three month period.

The Rules:

1. All general submission rules apply. Stories over 10,000 words are discouraged but not prohibited. R-rated stories are allowed but discouraged. Judges are not required to read stories over 10,000 words or any R-rated stories.
2. All entries must be submitted under Prank Wars Challenge (2009-5) category and be submitted by midnight Saturday October 31, 2009.
3. Multiple chapters are allowed as long as all the requirements are in the chapter(s) that are submitted by the deadline. Completed stories are preferred.
4. The categories for judging are Best Overall, Best Prank, Best Humor, and Most Elaborate.

Bonus phrases for extra creativity are the following. Using any or all of them is not required. A good, creative story will always count much stronger than any bonus.

1. "They won't know what hit them."
2. “Ready? ......... Now!"
3. “This may even top the Marauders!”
4. “Well, that wasn't supposed to happen.”
5. “I told you not to touch your tongue to that!”
6. “I love you! Now come closer! I want to kill you!”

PS: This Challenge is based mostly on a suggestion by Zapatorf. I hope I did it justice.

ohhhh boy... My mind's already whirling... Do I have time to dust off the pen for a bit? I kinda wish we could do couple pairing, but on the note, that makes rivalry and revenge so much sweeter... Pairings are already popping into my head... I've gotta do this one...



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.01 - 10:20PM to say:

You have 31 days to brush off your pen. I can see Ginny and George together to make an awesome pair. That should almost be illegal. Even Luna and Hermione. You have to think about that one. Harry and Neville would be a guy thing. You just never know.



Valandar came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.01 - 11:37PM to say:

Quick question - since Neville / Luna isn't canon, is it still required?



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.02 - 12:28AM to say:

Neville/Luna may be teamed, but no one requires they be romantically paired, so it would certainly work with this. After all I've done to Rolf, no one understands the fun of alternative universe as I do in that regard. This is good, and I already have the title.



tangle elfwand came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.02 - 01:34AM to say:

Oh this is mighty tempting... darn the HSC and all its study requirements. But maybe a day full of writing will satisfy this challenge... maybe I could consider it practising my creative writing skills.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.02 - 07:06AM to say:

Valandar - Both you and Spenser are correct. It isn't Canon nor are they in a romantic relationship. But I did list them as a couple and stated they can't be teamed up in Requirement #2: If two people make a team, we must know who they are before the start of the pranking war. Couples may NOT team up, no Harry/Ginny or Neville/Luna, etc. So, yes, it is required per your question.



ginny_lola came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.02 - 01:14PM to say:

One question - where it says about the time span, does it have to last for three months or can it be less than that? I love this challenge so much!



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.02 - 08:20PM to say:

ginny_lola - A time frame needs to be established. Think of it as setting ground rules. But any prank could be done the first day or on the 90th day. Any time within the established three months. If everybody accomplishes their pranks within the first month, that would end the time frame as there is nothing left.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.03 - 12:11AM to say:

The time frame is extremely important for perspective. Take it as an avenue for specific fun. Still...for those of us existing in an alternative universe; there are all manner of possibilities...within the rules.

Rolf Scamander, for example, is definitely a naturalist in certain universes. Some mischievous writer has him running a nudist beach near Miami. I also didn't kill off Fred. I refused to kill Hedwig. No owls go down in my stories!

Alternative universe stories answer a number of questions, and they open at least as many doors, but there are countless opportunities for the strict adherents to canon as well. There are two rules here I believe. Learn what you can, and above all...have fun.



ginny_lola came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.03 - 06:12AM to say:

OK, thanks, I understand the whole time frame thing much more now :)



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.03 - 09:31AM to say:

What I would like to see for the next challenge is something simpler. The reason I say this is because there is a lot of requirements for this challenge and it is for a month long challenge and less than 10 000 words, ideally. There's just so much to include - that the challenge stipulates you *have* to include. It'll take me half the month to figure out all the stipulations! I would please ask that the next challenge be something simple ... more open ended with less restrictions how how to frame the story. I think you'd get more participation and more inventive ideas. I can't participate at this time as the parameters of the challenges lately are just too dense. I notice there are often many questions trying to clarify also. I'd love to have a simpler one phrase prompt without all the excess rulings. Something to think about anyway.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.03 - 11:17AM to say:

Kezzabear - You may be right as this Challenge has a lot of requirements. Some have more, some have less. Typically, I have 4 as a minimum. 2009-6 should be much simpler that this one. Sorry, I can't tell you more that that.



Yunchao came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.04 - 12:41AM to say:

Good luck authors!



ginnyweasley777 came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.06 - 12:24PM to say:

I've got to say that I agree with Kezzabear. I would love to attempt a challenge fic but this one does seem to have a lot of rules and be quite confusing. Oh well, perhaps next time.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.06 - 06:02PM to say:

ginnyweasley777 - I'm sorry to say I didn't think it would be this difficult. I figured requirements 1, 2, 3, & 7could be knocked out in a few paragraphs here and there. That would leave #4, 5, & 6 to be the meat of the story. I'll remember this in the future.



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.06 - 10:46PM to say:

It's not how many words it would take so much as having to decipher it. For example number 1 I have to c&p into a word document to break down like an essay question before I even know what it means. It's also very prescriptive such as it have to be after Hogwarts and it has to be in a 'specifically stated three month period'. That requires a lot more effort in constructing a story. When you have Real Life and only a month to construct the story less stipulations would make it easier becasue you wouldn't have to worry about conforming your ideas into something quite as narrow.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.07 - 07:28AM to say:

Kezzabear - Point taken.



Sibling Creature came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.12 - 07:02AM to say:

Sir Ollivander - I think you made the Neville/Luna thing clear as mud. are you saying that Neville and Luna are required to be a couple by the terms of the challenge and thus cannot be a team or are you saying that they only cannot be a team if they are a couple?



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2009.10.13 - 10:06AM to say:

Sibling Creature - I paired Neville & Luna as a couple just like the others. Therefore they cannot team up together.
