Time-Turner Challenge (2014-2)

Near the end of the Horcrux hunt, Harry finds a Time-Turner.  When you look closely at it, the dials appear as if the Time-Turner can go back many months. 

The Challenge is to write a story of how Harry found the Time-Turner and, more importantly, what he does with it.


1. All general submission rules apply. Stories over 20,000 words are discouraged but not prohibited.  R-rated stories are allowed but discouraged. Judges are not required to read stories over 20,000 words or any R-rated stories.

2. All entries must be submitted under “Time-Turner” Challenge 2014-2, sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Thursday, May 15, 2014.

3. Completed stories are seriously preferred.  Multiple chapters are allowed as long as all the requirements are in the chapters that are submitted by the deadline. 

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

*** The basis of this Challenge idea came from a suggestion of Tron's.  Thanks.

Hippothestrowl came out of the woodwork on 2014.04.08 - 05:43PM to say:

I have a good story idea but to be believable, it requires that 'many months' can mean 20 to 30 months and from nearer the start of the Horcrux hunt than the end. Should I proceed with it?

Sir Ollivander came out of the woodwork on 2014.04.08 - 10:34PM to say:

YES! Many months could be years. It still fits. We're not that strict. A good story is still a good story.

Hippothestrowl came out of the woodwork on 2014.04.09 - 03:09AM to say:

Ah, good, thanks. I'll get on it.

Jeograph came out of the woodwork on 2014.05.07 - 11:49AM to say:

If I cannot get it completely finished by the deadline, can I still enter the challenge with what I have so far finished, assuming the rest follows in short order? A plot bunny hoped up in to my lap and has refused to go away!
