April Fool's Challenge (2017-2)

What a grand way to honour a grand day!

Er, what's so grand about today?  Sixth anniversary of Alan Rickman's last on-stage performance?

No silly.  I mean, yes, BUT today is April Fool's day and what better way to honour it than with a "Pranks" Challenge?  Indeed, it is not just the twins who can pull a prank.  Somebody has just wronged Harry and Ginny, and they're going to get even in the most fitting and funny way possible.  Tell us about it!  Please note that these shenanigans need not take place on April 1, however they're certainly welcome to borrow from the spirit of this fine day!


Challenge award categories are:

  Most Humourous

  Most Unexpected

  Best Overall

  People's Choice Award

  Most Gratuitous Use of the Word Belgium in a Serious Screen Play


Authours, please have your stories submitted by July 15, 2017 to line us up for an awards announcement on August Fool's Day.  The usual caveats apply as far as judges not having to read Restricted stories, or read past the 20,000th word of a story.

Everyone, please feel free to suggest new challenge ideas whenever they occur to you!

It's Fools day, Fred and George's birthday. Happy Birthday you two! I promise to publish my very first story in honour to your birthday challenge. I didn't know about Alan Rickman's last on-stage performance. Anyway, he's certainly someone who's worth to remember.

How about a portkey-accident challenge. By pure mischance, both, Ginny and Harry, unwittingly touch a forgotten portkey (e.g. when cleaning-up Grimmauld Place) and suddenly disappear to an unknown location. Tell us how they find out where they are, and how they manage to find their way back home. Of course, it would also be interesting to know who made it a portkey, and why.
