Buried Gems 11-2019

The last edition of the Buried Gems of the Year 2019 brings you a story nominated by ellen. She gave the story particularly high marks for a touch of humour, and characters brought to life with decent dialogue, as well as the excellent spelling and grammar.

The Buried Gem 11-2019 is 

Great Expectations by CassandraCross

Summary: A weekend trip to the mysterious Rose Cottage leads to Ginny's second pregnancy and Hermione's first. Join the Potters and Weasleys as they take on “The Next Great Adventure” while they anticipate the births of Albus Potter and Rose Weasley.

 

If you enjoyed reading this Buried Gem, you might also like CassandraCross' other stories, The Letter and To Hear the Bells Ring, the latter especially fits in the Christmas season.

Feel free to let us know what you think about these stories!

Christmas Challenge (2019-3) - Update/ Reminder

This is just a reminder for all who want to participate in the Christmas Challenge  

You still have 28 days left to submit your story for our Christmas Challenge - and in case you didn't start writing yet - there's still time enough to come up with a nice story about Harry and Ginny's best Christmas memories.

Please note rules for challenge stories:  submissions must be stand-alone stories that are marked as complete by deadline; all stories must be posted under the Christmas Challenge (2019-3) category.

The categories for judging will be Most Romantic, Most Humourous, Best Overall, and the People's Choice Award. 

***Edit - I'm going to leave the challenge open until New Year as I don't think judges will want to be judging over Christmas, so you have a bit longer to submit stories too.  Thanks, ginnyweasley777***

Buried Gems 10-2019

The edition 10-2019 of the SIYE Buried Gems brings you a story that starts at the end of HBP, Losing Each Other by MyGinevra.

Summary: This story follows Harry and Ginny from their parting after Dumbledore's funeral. Much of it is told from Ginny's POV. The first chapter, "Ginny's Mermaid," was originally posted as a one-shot. I have revised it slightly as part of this longer story, but it is essentially the same as it was when I first posted it.

The story was written pre-DH. If you liked Losing Each Other, then I'd recommend reading the 'kind of' sequels The Hogs Head and Ginny's House as well. 'Kind of' sequel because it keeps some elements of Losing Each Other, but instead of creating an alternate universe, it follows canon, including Deathly Hallows. The sequels start during the final battle and describe the start into Harry's and Ginny's life together.

Feel free to let us know what you think about this story!

If you want to nominate your favourite story for the Buried Gems, just leave a comment. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2012 or earlier, and they should be completed. As always, it would be nice if you could tell us with a few lines what you liked best about the story and why you recommend it.

Buried Gems 09-2019

Today's edition of Buried Gems brings you a special time-travelling story recommended by Tron with the following words: It's a multi-chapter story that's not too long.  It involves some time travel that fixes a bunch of the problems in the wizarding world in a matter of days.  Harry didn't waste any time.  Great story. 

The Buried Gem 09-2019 is Natural Order, posted by moshpit on SIYE in 2008.

Summary: If you've got a chance to do it over again, why putz around? You know the game, you know the players, and you know the goal. It's time for Double Jeopardy, where the scores can really change.

Feel free to let us know what you think about this story!

If you want to nominate your favourite story for the Buried Gems, just leave a comment. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2010 or earlier, and they should be completed.

First Time For Everything Challenge (2019-2) Results

First of all I'd just like to give a big shout-out to every single author who entered this challenge as the judges have mentioned what a high standard of stories there is, and how difficult it was to judge as each author put their own unique take on the prompt given.  Without further ado I can announce the winners are as follows-

Most Unexpected

The Art of Being Harry by gryffins_door

Most Humourous

Up in the Air by quinn

Best Overall

The Art of Being Harry by gryffins_door

People's Choice Award

We have a three-way tie!

The Art of Being Harry by gryffins_door

Up in the Air by quinn

Ready for Take-off by Gin110881

 

I would personally like to give an Honorable Mention to Second Chances and First Occasions by Rogan which came extremely close and I was told would have won if there had been a Most Romantic category this time.

Huge thank you to everyone who has taken part, and to the judges for what was definitely a difficult task - AM, JG, MJ, SR

I will be back in the next day or so with the new challenge to keep your eyes peeled!

Buried Gems 08-2019

After the last Buried Gem has been a bit shorter, the 08-2019 edition of the Buried Gems presents you a significantly longer story written in the years 2003/2004. The story is set Post-OotP and belongs to the most reviewed stories on SIYE to date (rank 10).

The Buried Gem 08-2019 is It Happened One Night by SunDevil05.

Summary: Harry and Ginny make a decision that changes their lives... 

 

If you like the story, you should also read the one-shot companion pieces you can find on SunDevil05's user page.

Since it was a close call, which of SunDevil05's stories would be today's Buried Gem, I also recommend reading the other candidates, Adventures in Courtship and its sequel Adventures as Newlyweds.

Feel free to let us know what you think about SunDevil05's stories!

If you want to nominate your favourite story for the Buried Gems, just leave a comment. The nominated stories should have been published on SIYE in 2010 or earlier, and they should be completed. As always, it would be nice if you could tell us with a few lines what you liked best about the story and why you recommend it.
