You’re Having My Baby Challenge (2010-1)
Mrs. Ginny Potter goes to St. Mungo’s to confirm she is pregnant with their first child. But due to an incident at the hospital, she has to leave without knowing the results. By accident, the results are sent to her husband by owl and not to her. A very excited Harry plans to do something special to celebrate the blessed event with his wife.

This Challenge is a song fic, ”You’re Having My Baby”, written and recorded as a duet by popular Canadian music singer Paul Anka with female vocalist Odia Coats. The Challenge is to write a story with:

1. Following the lyrics of the song in mind. If used in part or in whole, the lyrics do not count as part of the minimum 1000 words.
2. Harry plans and celebrates the event with his wife; takes Ginny out to dinner, a getaway trip, romantic evening, a surprise, whatever….
3. The typical baby stuff is discussed; names, planning a baby’s room, announcing to the world, etc.
4. All the early pregnancy symptoms start to happen to Ginny and shared with Harry.

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 You're Having My Baby Challenge (2010-1) sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight Sunday, February 28, 2010.
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, Romance, Husband/Wife Discussion, and Best Celebration.

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. “[Blank] is always better with a good cup of hot chocolate.”
2. “See…it’s not so easy to [blank].”
3. “If I had a Knut for every time he’s/she’s [blank].”
4. “Maybe putting a big ribbon on the [blank] wasn’t such a great idea.”
5. “You really had to see a Healer after [blanking]? Imagine that.”
6. “Since when can [blanks] speak?”

Scene in my living room tewenty minutes ago:

"Eric...no! You're retired!"

"But Kathy..."

"You promised to shave the dog this month! You do not need to be writing a follow-on to Oh Baby!".

"But Kathy..."

"You don't need to do another song parody either! Remember the Cease and Desist Order from Sir Paul McCartney?"

"But Kathy..."

Well...yes I am considering doing one more Challenge. I will miss Kathy when she leaves me though. Hmm...who will I get to massage my bunions?

Oh, this sounds good. I may just have to have a go at this one. :)

Shave the dog....

ACK! The only thing I have running through my head is how dumb Finn looked when he was singing this to Quinn on Glee! I might actually have an inkling of a plot brewing here!



sanidad came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.04 - 02:07PM to say:

I was wondering when someone was going to bring up Glee...



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.04 - 02:14PM to say:

I have no idea who or what a Glee is. Who is Finn & Quinn?



sanidad came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.04 - 06:19PM to say:

Finn and Quinn are characters on Glee, a new TV show on Fox. Suffice it to say, it really wasn't the best way for one to let your girlfriend's parents know that she's pregnant.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.04 - 08:03PM to say:

Ahh. Okay. I watch very little TV so I guess I didn't miss much.

Song Fic??? YUCK!!!



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.05 - 08:07AM to say:

You can please some of the people some of the time. But you can't please all the people all the time. The outcome of the last songfic Challenge was very successful. Maybe we'll see your submission on the next Challenge.



Torak came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.05 - 03:20PM to say:

The last songfic challenge - and I'll be the first to admit I don't like songfics - was brilliant. (OK, so I designed it, but still.) This one, too, has... potential. ;-)



jennyelf came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.05 - 04:21PM to say:

I only started writing due to the last songfic challenge. It inspired those plot bunnies to move and make a home. *grin*



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.06 - 07:51AM to say:

If I can pull this off without being cliche (it's a very cliche set up *frowns*) ... maybe ... but I already wrote a first child pregnancy discovery for my universe ... this could be a problem. Meh, we shall see.



GinnyPotter7 came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.06 - 11:41AM to say:

I think I might attempt it because I have yet to post a story on here. Mine is still in the works. :/



KateriBella came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.06 - 10:32PM to say:

sanidad - yeah, probably the worst way to bring that tidbit to light! I'm totally hooked on the show :)



amblewat came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.09 - 01:14PM to say:

I love the challenge this month! Maybe it will get my creative juices flowing again. :)



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2010.02.27 - 06:58PM to say:

Ooops ... I think I went over 10 000 words ROFLOL
