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:
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!
