Muggle Technology Challenge Update #1

Fred and Ginny were conducting an inventory of some kind in back of Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes.  Ginny was more interested is what they actually had.  Fred was mumbling about what potions and other ingredients were needed and how much to buy.  After listening for a few minutes, Ginny got tired of hearing it.

"Fred, if it's so important to get the potions and pay for it, why don't you go get them."

"Why, little Gin-Gin.  George is getting everything I tell him.  We'll have everything within the hour."

Surprised, Ginny replied, "How does he know what you want?"

"I'm talking to him right now and he can hear you.  Say Hi George."

"How is that possible?" she wondered out loud.

Fred removed a little bud the size and color of a Knut from his left ear.  "This, my unknowing sister, is a felephone.  It works just like the one at Hermione's house.  Muggles use these to connect to a sail phone in their pocket or on their belt.  This new prototype of ours is both the ear piece and the phone in one and runs on magic."

Can you imagine what Ginny and a few others could do with some of these at Hogwarts?   Well write it down and let us know.

Chary Potter and the Years of Reluctance by Hippothestrowl (PG-13)
Friendless, bullied, seen as worthless by the Dursleys, Harry's natural rebellious and adventurous nature was repressed. Life was only bearable if he kept out of the way so he grew up unwilling to step out of line. He lives by his wits but has high ideals and courage below the surface. Harry is simply reluctant to draw attention to himself — it's less painful that way!

The Prevailing Counterpoint by GHL (PG)
"We can prevail," Ginny whispered. "I mean sooner. Not later. Not months and months of people dying and lives being torn apart ...." As the summer of 1997 draws to a close, Harry and Ginny return to Hogwarts to forge unlikely alliances, protect the innocent, and dispel the encroaching darkness. Propelled by powerful convictions and enlightened by a reclusive pair of mystics, they glimpse an unlikely path to victory.While some people thrive in imaginary worlds of angst and ambiguity, others prefer fiction as an escape into comfort and moral certitude: good people being rewarded for doing good things well. Matt Fake-A-Smile's fan-fiction novels, 'Taking Control' and 'Free Life', exemplify an uplifting story in which Harry Potter decides to put his troubled past behind him and take charge of a challenging future.Guided by convictions, rather than by his supposed limitations, he surges ahead to meet destiny while a steadfast, unconditional friendship blossoms into a thrilling and empowering romance ....The only problem is that the story is incomplete. When Matt published his final update to 'Free Life' more than two years ago, death eaters were still on the rampage, and Voldemort was still scheming in the shadows to murder our protagonists. Harry and Ginny had established themselves as plucky, admirable heroes, but not yet strong enough to turn the tide. With little to rely on from the corrupt Ministry of Magic and an overmatched Order or Phoenix, how should they aspire to overcome? Like many other fans, I would be overjoyed if Matt was able to propel his compelling story to denouement. But in case life stands in his way, perhaps someone might now take a page from Matt's protagonists: step up, take a stand, make things happen?This is a modest attempt to guess where Matt's thriller might have led. The story picks up several weeks after the last published chapter of 'Free Life', with Harry and Ginny preparing to return to Hogwarts, not as students but as the two youngest graduates of the school in generations. How will family, friends, and enemies react as they set about finding the right angle to confront the Dark Lord on their own terms? Will the divided castle unite under two spirited young leaders? Might the balance be tipped by a cast of Harry's brash and eager young acolytes whom even J.K. Rowling herself never foresaw?This story line presumes rigorous Rowling canon through the end of Order of the Phoenix, followed by the divergent post-OotP theme developed by Matt Fake-A-Smile in his stories 'Taking Control' and 'Free Life'. Most of the characters in this story are the intellectual property of J.K. Rowling, and many of the remainder are the products of Matt's imagination. ***This story is published with Matt (fake-a-smile)'s permission and in full SIYE knowledge.***

New Year's Eve by Northumbrian (PG-13)
** Winner of the DSTA for Best Comedy **
New Year's Eve, (or Hogmanay if you prefer). What sort of imbecile thinks it's a good idea to give a married man with two kids, and a very pregnant wife, a love potion? It should be a time to celebrate. For "the best dad in the world" and his wife, it's time for chocolate biscuits, cocktails, an Auror in a leopard print dress, Dung and Coco. This is a sequel (of sorts) to Beard Hunters. You don't need to read it first, but as it's close to Christmas, you might want to. :-D
