Happy Birthday Joanne and Harry
It is now 31 July in Edinburgh, Hogsmeade, and the western provinces of Freedonia. We here at Sink Into Your Eyes would like to be the first to wish J. K. Rowling a wonderful birthday.
At least as important, we have Harry Potter's birthday as well. We can only image the un-sat-upon cake Ginny is baking for her favorite Wizard.
Mischief managed...birthday cakes subdued!

Married Lives Challenge Update #1
"I had no idea there were that many baby stores in all of England. Why does a baby need a castle full of baby furniture. She took me to places I didn't even know existed." Exclaimed Neville.
Rom spoke up adding his two Knuts worth. "With all the Weasleys's born, there is enough baby furniture to go around. I don't think we have to get any more. Unless, of course, Hermione wants something special."
When Harry didn't chime in, the other two future fathers looked at him.
"Um, I was er thinking of trying my hand at Transfiguration or something. Maybe make the crib and stuff. I'd like to try some wood carving. Ginny said she wouldn't mind at all. She'd seen everything at the Burrow and really doesn't want any of it."
And what do you want in this story challenge. Come on. You know you want to write something.

Effective immediately, elizabeth_austen and alicia rose potter have officially joined the SIYE Staff as Archivists and will be part of the cadre of people who accept or cruelly reject submissions. We thank them and our already-serving staff members for their willingness to help out and make SIYE a great place.
The war was over and Wizarding Britain got on with their lives. So it became that Mrs. Ginny Potter, Mrs. Hermione Weasley, and Mrs. Longbottom were sitting together at St. Mungo's waiting for their various pregnancy checkups discussing their new married lives. In the meantime, the husbands Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Neville Longbottom were at the Three Broomsticks having a similar discussion waiting for their wives after their appointments.
The Challenge is to write a story from any one of these six person's point of view about their new married lives.
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.

In the words of the immortal Theodore Hausotter, "When the time is time, the time is time." It is now after midnight in both Hogsmeade and in Florida. The Time-Turner Challenge (2014-2) is now closed. Anyone looking for some time travel now will need to search out a certain blue police box.
We have seven great stories for our judges to consider. All of us here at Sink Into Your Eyes appreciate their efforts and wish them all the best of luck in the competition. Look for the results on 31 May.
For the vacationing Sir Ollivander, Mischief managed!
