Stories and Authors that have been recipients of Silver Trinket Awards

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.

Happy Birthday Bonnie

It is now February 17th in London and Hogsmeade.  All of us here at Sink Into Your Eyes would like to wish Miss Bonnie Wright, the actress who portrays one half of our site's favorite couple (no, she's not Harry...sheesh), a very wonderful twenty-fourth birthday.  While the boss has banished me from the SIYE ballrooms after all those insurance claims (really...not my fault), someone else has stepped up to provide cake, punch, and music there throughout the next day.  Have a great one Bonnie.

Mischief managed!

The "Home Alone" Challenge is Now Closed

Our first Challenge of the year is now closed.  We have only one story where Ginny does the job of defending the Burrow.  Therefore the judging will be a little different.  The story will go up against the categories of Best Overall, Humorous, Ingenious, and of course, The People’s Choice Award.  May the best category win…?

Home Alone Challenge (2015-1)

Based on the popular 1990 American movie "Home Alone," starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister and two would-be burglars, played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, this Challenge is about either Harry Potter at #4 Privet Drive OR Ginny Weasley at the Burrow.  Pick one!

Harry is left alone when the Dursley's leave town for the weekend.  Of course his wand is locked up somewhere and he can't get to it.

Ginny is home alone without her wand over a weekend while the family visits Bill on assignment in Ireland.  She's being punished for hexing the Twins after a prank gets carried too far.

For some unknown reasons the wards weaken and burglars are able to see and access their homes.  Harry / Ginny are determined to defend their homes, respectively.

The Challenge is to write a story of how Harry / Ginny get into this situation and how they defend their homes against the burglars.  Harry / Ginny may not leave their properties.

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 “Home Alone” Challenge 2015-1, sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Sunday, February 15, 2015.

3. Change in Rule: Only completed stories are acceptable.  Multiple chapters are allowed.

4. The categories for judging are Best Overall, Humorous, Ingenious, and The People’s Choice Award.

SIYE Website Has A Technical Glitch

Some time Tuesday, Jan 6th, SIYE experienced a technical glitch and the program  reverted back to sometime late Tuesday, December 30, 2014.  Anything that was done on the site is no longer there.  So SIYE lost a week.  (Somebody got a hold of a Time Turner!)

If you had any interactions with SIYE during last week, you need to do it again.  Submit stories or chapters, editing a story, etc.  We at SIYE will reprint the DSTA nominations and the Challenge News.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.  We are still talking with our technical staff to learn what happened so we can prevent it from happening again.

Happy New Year...again!

And The Winners Are....

And The Winners Are....

Quidditch is a popular sport in the Wizarding World as well as on SIYE as this Challenge shows.  We had eight stories competing for winning scores.  A real mix of outcomes in the games.  And the winners are...

The award for Best Overall goes to:

The Seeker Daughter by GHL

The award for Best Game Action goes to:

Perfect Catch by Arnel

The award for Most Humorous goes to:

Bikini Girls on Brooms by Northumbrian

The People's Choice Award goes to:

Love Me Not by potterfan2008

The winning stories are now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.  The 2015-1 Challenge will start January 1st.  You wouldn't want to be caught home alone.

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

Note:  One judge questioned a story which my answer decided his first or second place nomination.  I thought his attention to detail was important to share with everybody.  If JKR spelled Quidditch with a capital Q, two "R"s and a "Z", then that is canon.  You should spell it the same way.  SIYE has brought this up in the past when it was questioned.  Spelling of proper names as JKR wrote them is what we consider correct, including capitalizing the first letter.  And don't you dare misspell Professor McGonagall.  She will dock you 50 points.

Alone With My Thoughts by Ginny_Hermione
Itís been a year. A year since I last saw him. It breaks my heart, the pain of not being with him. But I must be strong. Strong for him, and all those fighting. Fighting for peace. Peace. I ponder the concept. What will a world in peace be like? It gives me a small feeling of warmth, that maybe there will be peace. Peace from a war that has gripped the world, my world, so hard, and made it suffer so much. DH is disregarded

The Power to Vanquish by deedeevee (R)
My version of what happened after HBP.I discovered fan fiction while waiting for Book 7 and at the time I was also worried about how certain things within the HP series might end; so I figured I'd try writing my own version for fun. My husband kept bugging me to read it and, to my surprise, he actually liked it. With much encouragement from him, I finally worked up the nerve to post it (on a different FF site at that time) and I did finish it just before Book 7 came out. It was interesting to see where I came close to the real thing and where I missed the mark.

The Space Between by YelloWitchGrl (R)
Harry and Ginny's lives have finally evened out. They've faced trauma, and loss, more than most have, but they've fought hard to find a normal. If only things could stay that way... Old enemies find new ways to seek revenge. This story is the sequel to Bound. It would be extremely helpful if you read that first. Warnings are to be safe. It's probably overkill. Please message me if you have any questions or concerns.

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.

Fuddle Fog & Fungus Bumps by GHL (PG)
*** Winner of Humorous & Ingenious in the Home Alone Challenge *** "I wonder what would happen if I mix this paste with that powder?" Ginny honestly had no idea, but she was willing to wager that it could be a really funny way to extract sweet revenge. As she discretely placed the containers back into Fred's prank chest and relocked it, she would never have guessed that, several accidents later, she would become embroiled in the best punishment ever -- a weekend alone at the Burrow that would change her life forever!
