The Portraits Challenge Update #2

Returning to the Common Room late one evening from the kitchens by way of one of the hidden passageways, Harry asks one of the portraits he's gotten to know well if there  were more secret passageways that nobody remembers.

"You know, there are eleven ways out of the castle.  I believe you know of four of them.  Three may have been closed or collapsed." the portrait replied.

"Eleven!  I've heard of seven.  And yes, four are unusable." Harry exclaimed.

"Well, there's the Shrieking Shack one, the one to that chocolate store in town, the one to the back side of the lake, the troop entrance on the other side of the mountain, the chamber one I think you found, and..."

"Wait. the troop entrance?  That one I haven't heard of.  Or at least by that name."

"Yes.  During war times when the castle was under assault, troops and supplies came through from the other side of the mountain through a hidden passage through the old storage rooms, weapons room and the sleeping quarters.  If you go to the second floor, there's a large closet where the wall moves away, down a long flight of stairs..."

"A weapons room?"

"Oh, yes.  That's where the troops lived and trained.  There's a whole compound set up for 500 men to live and train."

So what do you want to learn about Hogwarts castle?  I'm sure there's plenty more to discover.  You just have to write about them.

*** A Late Note:  This Challenge is based on an original suggestion by Lazy Lazuli.  Thanks JP.

There seemed to be some site problems this morning - they have now been resolved.

The Portraits Challenge Update #1

On a not so late Thursday evening, Harry was again sitting in an unused classroom.  But this time he had an audience of seven portraits in four frames holding a very informal discussion of who knows what.

"For instance," one older lady stated.  "On Thursday nights like tonight, when the staff have their weekly meetings, Mr. Filch always neglects to patrol the fifth floor and above.  He works the fourth floors down to his quarters where he retires for the evening.  Such information could save that young Miss Brown's reputation.  There are more broom closets than the one she favors on the third floor.  She and her current beau missed being caught after curfew by a mere one minute the other night."

"So what locations would you recommend for say, a young, upstanding couple to spend some private time together?" Harry thought out loud.

"Not that you have ever taken advantage of any," an elderly gentleman replied.  "But there are a few long forgotten stowage rooms on the seventh floor that are never checked by the staff or the prefects.  They are quite more comfortable than a cramped broom closet, if you know what I mean."

There were a few comments from the other portraits concerning the gentleman's response.  Some agreed, some were surprised, and one couple appeared to be blushing.

Harry thought of having a quick but private conversation with Lavender when he returned to the Common Room later.  No reason for loosing house points unnecessarily.

What do you think you could or would want to learn from the Hogwarts experts?  Write it down and submit your entry to the Challenge.

The Portraits Challenge (2015-2)

After brooding around, Harry Potter ended up looking out a dirty window in an unused room in some unknown part of the castle.  He was startled when he heard a voice close by say, “Hello?”  A portrait that had seen better days started a conversation with him.  Harry shortly learned that the vast majority of the portraits at Hogwarts are neglected and abandoned.  Keeping up conversations, Harry became the most popular person the portraits wanted to talk to.

The portraits know every square inch of the castle, where everybody and everything is, what everybody is saying, what they’re doing, and with whom.  Within a month, Harry became the most informed person in the castle.  Nothing was sacred.

The Challenge is to write a story of how this came about, what all information Harry can and did gain from the portraits, and how he uses this information to his advantage.

Rules:

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 “The Portraits” Challenge 2015-2, sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Friday, May 15, 2015.

3. Only completed stories by the deadline are acceptable.  Multiple chapters are allowed.

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

*** A Late Note:  This Challenge is based on an original suggestion by Lazy Lazuli.  Thanks JP.

And The Winner Is....

With only one "Home Alone" story, the judges still had to submit their votes and comments.  The results was pretty much straight forward and split down the middle.  Two comments concerning Dobby were polar opposites.  So, the winner is...

The award for Humorous & Ingenious goes to:

Fuddle Fog & Fungus Bumps by GHL

The winning story is now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.  The 2015-2 Challenge will start April 1st.  Remember all those people in the school...in those ugly frames

I would like to thank the judges that sent in their votes.  You know who you are: AM, BA, JG, JG, TM, & ZA.  Your time to help out is quite valuable. The Challenge would not exist if nobody judged them.

This story will take us up to Albus and Rose train ride to Hogwarts.

The Seeker Daughter by GHL (G)
** Winner of the DSTA for Best Drama **
*** Winner of Best Overall in the Quidditch Challenge *** May 2004: It's being billed as the Hogwarts match of the decade! The best Gryffindor team in ages is set to clash against the sleek, defending champion Slytherins. Both squads are stacked with young stars whom Harry and Ginny have mentored, and the Potters are on-hand to mingle with their adoring acolytes. Yet amidst the excitement and good will, lurks a spectre of pain and betrayal -- a brilliant yet prickly Slytherin seeker whose bewildering legacy Harry knows he can no longer defer.** Starting lineups posted! ** (click link; scroll half way down page)This was actually supposed to follow another story ('Trix'; writing ongoing; posting to begin in November) but the Quidditch challenge came out too durned soon, so I'm trying to give you enough background for the current story to stand alone, without spoiling Trix. Hope you enjoy!

Trix by GHL (PG-13)
** Winner of the DSTA for Best New Story **
"But now old friends are acting strange..." -- Joni MitchellVoldemort is dead; Harry and Ginny are in love and living the dream. What's not to like, right? Then, a sudden rash of strange incidents piques Harry's anxiety. After years of war, are people just having difficulty adjusting to peace? Or is someone nasty pulling dirty 'trix'?The story is set three months after the end of 'The Prevailing Counterpoint', and builds on characters and events elaborated therein. TPC is probably not required reading if you accept that Dumbledore and Snape are dead; that Lupin, Tonks and Fred are alive, and that Slytherins are fundamentally neurotic.
