The Sting Challenge (2011-2) (Corrected)

Slander ’slan-der: a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report [oral (spoken) form]:

Libel ’li-bel: defamation by written or printed words, pictures, or in any form other than by spoken words or gestures [publication (magazine, newspaper)]:

With a little, discrete help from some DA friends and their parents that work in the ministry, the trio got a few laws passed through the Wizengamot and signed by the Minister of Magic that went unnoticed.  They are anti-slander and anti-libel laws.  Then Harry retained the best wizard lawyers, barristers, and solicitors on the British Isles.  Now, let’s see how the sparks fly…!

The Challenge is to write a story of how Harry and his friends use these new laws to go after the persons, businesses, and the ministry that tell and/or print lies, falsehoods and other make-believe stories about Harry Potter and his friends and to make them speak/print the truth.

Suggestions:

1.  The time frame can be any time during or after Hogwarts, but must be after the DA is established and Harry is into some money to hire the lawyers, i.e.: Sirius’s will or his inheritance.

2.  Do the lawyers act aggressively or passively finding any slander or libel?

3.  Do they go up against the Ministry or the Daily Prophet or Death Eater families?

4.  And most important, what are the penalties for the guilty party?

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 The Sting Challenge (2011-2) sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Saturday, April 30, 2011.

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 seriously preferred.

4.  The categories for judging are Best Overall, Drama, Legalese and The People’s Choice Award.

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.  "You can’t count.  There are only [blank].

2.  “It’s a great book, but they misspelled [blank’s] name.

3.  “That’s not a candle.”

4.  “Everything I need to know I learned in/from [blank].

5.  “You know you’re not supposed to eat [blanks], don’t you?

This could be fun. However, in the whole 7 books we see many trials but we never see a lawyer. This could be fun to get around



tangle elfwand came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.02 - 08:44AM to say:

That's a good point, there's never a wizard lawyer... Could be a lot of fun to make one up.



Mutt N Feathers came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.02 - 09:33PM to say:

I am so excited about this. What an awesome challenge!



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.03 - 02:02AM to say:

I don't get it ...



parakletos came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.03 - 04:09PM to say:

Kezza: I think that the premise is that there have been some laws passed that have slipped under the radar which Harry is now going to have enforced. Just one of the ways in which the challenge can be explained.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.03 - 06:46PM to say:

I updated the Challenge to make the theme more sensible. Parakletos is correct.



Kezzabear came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.04 - 08:15AM to say:

Well ... I still don't get it. I think it's a bit lawyery and technical for me.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.04 - 09:06AM to say:

Kezzabear - that's ok. You can pass on this one. Maybe next time.



Spenser Hemmingway came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.04 - 11:00AM to say:

Great--I've got the Perry Mason theme stuck in my head now. Regardless, this is going to be a fun Challenge.



M_And came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.09 - 01:37PM to say:

Having trouble posting my question, please forgive the blank posts. For awards, did you mean to use "Legalize" instead of "Legalese?" - M



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.09 - 04:09PM to say:

M_And - you're absolutely correct. I bet my Spell-Checker changed it on me. I switched it back. Thanks.



PrincessOfMayhem came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.09 - 07:44PM to say:

I have to agree with the others about Lawyers in the wizarding world. There are none, which is a bit strange. Actually the whole system seems off. They mix the Judicial and Legislative branches into ( an obviously corrupt) one. That's not the way to achieve justice, but hey the wizarding world coughtheMinistrycough is not very good at that. Sirius anyone? Still if we can overlook these things(or make them part of the story) it'd make for a pretty awesome challenge.



Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2011.04.09 - 09:52PM to say:

PrincessOfMayhem - that would be part of the Challenge, and a very interesting part at that.
