Sir Ollivander Is Stepping Down

Sir Ollivander is resigning from the positions of Senior Administrator and Chief Challenger at Sink Into Your Eyes web site effective the end of June.  He is stepping down from his areas of leadership and responsibility to become a regular member of SIYE.  The staff of SIYE have been aware of this move since the beginning of June.

My private and family life is beginning to take on more of a priority.  Working with SIYE is beginning to take a back seat when it comes to managing my time and energy.  I don’t want SIYE to suffer from my lack of attention.

Since December of 2003, I became an avid reader of SIYE stories.  Little by little, I was asked to join different positions in SIYE to the point of Senior Administrator under the owner, Robert.  I have enjoyed running the web site and adding my contributions.  I even had the pleasure of meeting Robert when on vacation near his hometown a few years ago.  Although I am leaving my positions, I will still be around, reading a story here and there.  I wish to thanks everybody who have made my jobs so easy.  Take care and best of luck to all.

The SIYE Challenge Is Suspended Until Further Notice

At the height of its popularity, the SIYE Challenge received 15 to 25 submitted stories per Challenge.  The judges had a lot of reading to do.  The last few years has seen the Challenge submissions dwindle down to 2 or 3 per contest.  A few occasions we were worried that we would have no submissions.  With such a very low turnout lately, the Challenge is being put on hold at this time.  I would like to thank a) those judges that continued to help out by reading and judging the stories and b) those authors that accepted the Challenge and came up with original stories to meet the it.  Overall, we received over 550 stories over the years.

And The Winners Are....

For this Challenge, we had eight judges and the People's choice Award voting on the two stories submitted.  It was a virtual clean sweep.  And the winner is...

The award for Best Overall, Most Useful, Most Unexpected and the People's Choice Award goes to:

Biscuits Deferred by GHL

The winning story is now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.  The Challenge category is back open.

My thanks to judges AM, JG, HW, NS, ZA, EB, SM, & FD.  Without judges taking the time to read and judge, the Challenge would not be happening.

The Potter Trunk Challenge Update #1

After Harry got over his shock at receiving something from his parents, he expanded the trunk to full size and went inside.  On the table in the den was the second letter.  He grabbed it, sat down and read it.

The Potter trunk library was better than the Hogwarts library.  Those books deemed not suitable or restricted at school was fully accessible in the trunk.  Also, the potions lab was better stocked than Snape's classroom.  Plus Snape wouldn't be standing over you, yelling insults at you, while you practice your potions.  The study room/den was a nice and quiet room to read or study without interruptions.  It could easily turn into a sleep room if needed.

Harry looked around the various rooms and through about it.  Given a kitchen & loo type room and one could live in the trunk.

What would be your reason of creating such a trunk for your child?  Write down your answer as a story and submit it for the Challenge.

The Potter Trunk Challenge (2016-2)

Two owls Harry had never seen before came thought the window at #4 Privet Drive.  Between them they carried a trunk about the size of a loaf of bread. They landed on Harry’s bed. Harry removed the trunk and gave the owls some treats before they flew off again.  Harry looked at the trunk and saw it had an envelope attached that was addressed to him but he did not recognize the hand writing.  He opened the letter and read it:

Harry,

We left this trunk with the goblins of Gringotts to deliver to you on your 12th Birthday if anything happened to both of us. Inside the trunk are three rooms set up as a Library, a Potions lab, and a study room/den. The library will expand as needed when books are added to it. The trunk also has a charm on it that allows you to enlarge and shrink the trunk without the Ministry’s knowledge. Just tap the trunk with your wand and say “Enlarge” or “Shrink” and remove your wand when the desired size is achieved.  You cannot enlarge the trunk bigger than its original size or shrink it smaller than a match box. There is also a second letter inside the trunk to explain why we did all this.  We love you and hope this trunk can help you in your life.

Love,

James & Lily Potter

The Challenge is to write a story explaining why James and Lily left Harry the trunk and what changes will it make in his life.  Although the trunk was delivered on Harry's 12th birthday, the time frame can be later.

The categories for judging are Best Overall, Most Useful, Most Unexpected, and the People's Choice Award.

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 Potter Trunk Challenge (2016-2) sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Sunday, May 15, 2016.

3. Only completed stories will be accepted.  Multiple chapters are allowed as long as all the requirements are in the chapters and the story is completed by the deadline.  All stories still go through the same approval process as normal submissions.  Please don't wait till the last minute.

NOTE:  This Challenge is based on a suggestion by Calvin W.

Thanks, Sir Ollivander

And The Winners Are....

The judges voted a bit differently as there was just one story in the Apparition Challenge.  And the conclusion is:

The award for Best Overall and Most Embarrassing goes to:

Wondrous Apparition Provided by Magician by Just Horsing Around

The winning story is now prominently listed in our Featured Stories section.

My thanks to judges HW, JG, TM, AM, GL, and NS.  Without judges taking the time to read and judge, the Challenge would not be happening.

The Challenge category is back open.

Happy Birthday Bonnie

It is now 17 February in London, in Hogsmeade, and throughout Western Freedonia. We the staff and membership of Sink Into Your Eyes would like to wish Bonnie Wright a most excellent birthday. For the two people in the world who don't know, Miss Wright is the actress who portrays Ginny Weasley-Potter, one half of the special couple to whom this writing site is dedicated.

As both ballrooms have recently suffered a new round of damage (it really, really wasn't my fault this time), the music and refreshments will be set up in the SIYE cafeteria.

Mischief managed!

Donations Needed

UPDATE: Thank you everybody for your generosity and support. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly and thoroughly the community comes through. We are now paid up until next year and have some change leftover that will be applied to next year's bill. If any of you who missed the chance to donate this time around win the lottery or are feeling filthy rich before next February, feel free to donate at any time. The PayPal link is always active. Thank you!

The time for SIYE to pay its annual hosting bill has arrived. Past generosity of site patrons like you has allowed us to avoid asking for donations for a number of years. However, this year, we're short. If any of you happen to be in possession of a healthy wallet and a fair amount of goodwill toward SIYE, please consider donating. We prefer to collect via PayPal. The link can be found under EXTRAS > SUPPORT THE SITE.

Harry & Ginny, in the Chamber of Secrɘst by GHL (PG)
** Winner of the DSTA for Best Comedy **
*** Honorable Mention in The Portraits Challenge *** This is all your fault! Yes, you know who you are... You couldn't let the kids rest on their Fuddle Fog laurels... Just had to request a sequel, yeah? September, 1992: the action shifts to Hogwarts, where the hunt for a cursed diary is bogging down. With Ginny stuck in detention, Harry finds himself racing down an unfamiliar corridor, desperately fleeing a lovesick dyslexic. Blundering into a dead end, Harry evades capture and chances upon a brilliant stroke of luck: a gallery of grateful gossips, snitches and spies, all very eager to set our plucky protagonists back on the trail. Will our delightful duo succumb to the 'Air of Slytherin'? And what about a DADA professor who (surprise, surprise) is not quite who he claims to be?
