Awards for Challenge 2017-3 & topic for Challenge 2018-1

Quite a wild ride, this magical creature hunt has been!

Well, the dust has settled, the beasts are accounted for, and the judging is complete.  Congratulations to all contributors, and especially those who produced our winning stories:

Let us all offer a round of applause for our wonderful judges:  AS, KH, MG, AM1 & AM2!

I will mention, for interest's sake, that for every authour who wrote a second story for this challenge, it was the second story that fared best in judging.  Fascinating.  In light of this, from heretoforward, I am happy to now make it standard policy that writers may contribute more than one story to a challenge.

This makes a nice seque to announcing our voter-selected topic for Challenge 2018-1:

By accident, Harry and Ginny stumble upon a hidden Portkey and are swept away.  What happens next, and how do they get back?

Awards will be made for Most Adventuresome, Most Romantic, Best Overall, and People's Choice.  Please stay tuned for a followup announcement in about a week, specifying rules for Challenge 2018-1, and opening the voting process on possible topics for Challenge 2018-2.

    September 2017 Trinket Voting

    Where has the time gone!  It seems like the last two months have flown by.  And so without further ado I now pronounce the voting open.  Winners will be announced on 30th November.

    Challenge 2017-3 Voting & Evaluation

    Well well well!  There was clearly a demand for some magical critters, and that has been met with seven fine stories to choose from for the People's Choice Award:


    Please cast a vote for your favourite via http://siye.co.uk/trinkets.php?peopleschoice=Y, and cheer on our judges as they sift carefully through the criteria to arrive at their selections for 'Most Adventuresome', 'Most Unexpected' and 'Best Overall'.

    I'll chime in again on Dec. 1 with challenge awards, and our topic selection for 2018-1.

     

    NOTE:  this is a bit unusual, but for StarFeather's story "Harry Potter and Druidic Magic", it seems that only Chapters 4 and 5 are to be considered as the Challenge entry.  I am inclined to allow this since it's a fine story and various of us in the past have submitted Challenge entries that are part of a longer series of stories.  For fairness to the other entrants, however, judges and People's Choice voters should take into consideration how well these two chapters, as an isolated unit, stand alone as a distinct story.

    Challenge 2017-3 update 3

    Dear friends!  It is almost upon us -- another submission deadline to another exciting SIYE challenge!

    As a reminder, the topic for Challenge 2017-3:  Somebody is going on a magical creature hunt -- tell us about it!

    Categories for the challenge include 'Most Adventuresome', 'Most Unexpected' and 'Best Overall'.  Stories must be marked as complete by midnight, Nov. 15, in order for award announcements to be made on Dec. 1.  By way of old standard caveats, please note that judges are not required to read stories that are classified as 'Restricted', and are permitted to skive off after the 20,000th word of long stories.

    For this challenge, we had waived the strict requirement that stories focus on Harry/Ginny, although I believe most stories are fairly HG-centric thus far.

    Those people who have judged in the past, please expect a note from me sometime in the coming ~week asking you again for your participation.  Those who have not judged in the last, but are interest in doing so are asked to contact me via my profile.

    Finally, votes and ideas for the Challenge 2018-1 topic are still being tallied.  Comments are a bit distributed, but input will be considered from anyone who replies to this new item, or to any of those time-stamped as below:

     

    2017.08.01 - 05:02AM

    2017.09.01 - 12:04PM

    2017.10.01 - 10:19AM

     

    Thank you all!

    Challenge 2017-3 update 2

    "So I thought to myself, 'Oi James, now you're done for!  It's dead dark an' you'll never find your way back!', then suddenly a second Hinkypunk -- a good Hinkypunk this time -- pops up behind me, an' he's lighting up the gap in the hedge, an' I say, 'Oh bless you, bless you, li'l mate!', an' I run run run all the way back home, and snuck back in bed 'fore anyone even noticed I was gone!"

    "You're bluffing, Jamey!"  Albus Severus scowled at his older brother.  "No way you went down to the stream last night, no way there's a Lethifold behind the gorse, and way no way he took Griffy!"

    "Leffy-fooled took Gwiffy-Wiffy!"  Lily Luna clapped her hands, grinning cheekily at Albus's glare.

    "No bluffin'."  James gave his younger brother a deathly serious smirk.  "Only way to get your stuffed Griffin back now 'sif we go down there together.  You lure the Lethifold away, an' I'll grab Griffy."

    "Al fools leffy-fool 'n' Jamey grabs Gwiffy 'n' Lily Luner's gonna watch!"  Lily danced about the room, singing her assessment.

    "Oi crumbs."  Albus's face sank wearily into his hand.  "When do we go?"

    James thought for a moment.  "Maybe Tuesday night, as it's full moon an' we shan't need the Hinky-"

    "Biscuits and milk!"  Ginny sailed into the room with a loaded tray, then froze, reading their faces.  "Oh my!  What are you three planning now??"

    After a moment of awkward silence, Lily shrugged.  "Nuffin' Muvver."


    ***************


    Two wonderful stories in and six more weeks to discover some others, right?  Time to rattle some keys and jolt us readers with your great tales of tails, yarns of barns, and furry fantasies!

    Give the time stretch between the earliest stories that those about to come our way, I am going to add our first two entries to Featured Story prominence.

    Finally, please continue to cast votes for favorite 2018-1 challenge topics within the 2017.09.01 discussion space (scroll down SIYE home  page).  Note that the newest topic suggestions, plus vote-getters from the 2018-1 ballot, will be recycled as options for the 2018-2 challenge.

    And so it's that time again, time to vote for our favourite stories of the last two months.  Although a few of the categories are a bit thin on the ground with nominations it has been decided to keep to the schedule of a two-month cycle in order to hold the Annual Awards early next year.

    And so I now hand the reins over to yourselves.  Please vote for your favourite stories.  Voting can be found here -

    Cheers to Albus Severus + Challenge 2017-3 Update

    We at SIYE are thrilled to mark Albus Severus Potter's first ride on the Hogwarts Express this morning!  Cheers, little fellow -- it will all work out, yeah?

     

    Challenge 2017-3 Update:

    We're off to a roaring start.  Welsh Green, or Hungarian Horntail you ask?  Nay, the roaring is all the applause for two great stories already in the mill, and hopefully more to come!

    A special note:  we received a question about whether it is permissible for an author to submit two stories to the same challenge?  The answer is that, to the best of our research, nobody ever said no (and indeed the Hemmingway 6 challenges actively encouraged multiple entries) so all writers with multiple beastly tales are welcome to contribute them!

    By way of reminder, the topic for Challenge 2017-3 is  Somebody is going on a magical creature hunt -- tell us about it!  Categories for the challenge include 'Most Adventuresome', 'Most Unexpected' and 'Best Overall'.  Stories must be submitted by midnight, Nov. 15, in order for award announcements to be made on Dec. 1.  The strict requirement that stories focus on Harry/Ginny is relaxed for this challenge, although it's impossible to deny that HG stories are always real crowd pleasers.

     

    Let's Begin Voting for 2018-1 Topics:

    1. Years into their marriage, Ginny discovers something surprising about Harry.  Tell us about it.
    2. By accident, Harry and Ginny stumble upon a hidden Portkey and are swept away.  What happens next, and how do they get back?
    3. Harry has never been abroad before. His first trip is with Ginny. Where do they go, and why?
    4. In the rubble of the final battle, Harry and Ginny both think that the other has perished.  What do they do?
    5. Harry secretly discovers that the Mirror of Erised can be used for time travel!  Ginny secretly learns the same thing, and both begin using the mirror, without realising that the other is doing so too.  Oi, there's a recipe for trouble!
    6. Harry's and Ginny's hectic lifestyles come to a screeching halt when one of them suffers a debilitating accident.  How will things change as the couple adjusts to a slow recovery?

    Please let us know your preferences!  Please also feel free to make new suggestions, which will be added to the above list.

    Birthdays

    Her greatest fan just reminded me that today is Ginny's birthday.  Happy 36th!!

    When Harry J's big day went off with a bang in the Cheviot Hills, I was off on travels, focusing on my road rather than his.  Perhaps he too will accept our belated cheers!

This is a change in the Time Travel trope where Harry originally never went to Hogwarts, where events spiraled out of control and Voldemort had risen with the Philosophers Stone and Diary Riddle forced another side to the conflict.

    Memoirs of a Red Headed Witch by My Wicked Quill (PG-13)
    ** Winner of the DSTA for Best Romance **
    Ginny Weasley was always overlooked. Always the youngest, always the smallest, and was never really given the chance to let her voice be heard. But sometimes the best insight comes from those who were always in the background. Her story of redemption, loyalty and love, proves that she was never just the Weasley brothers' little sister.

    The Trouble With School by LittleRose13 (G)
    ** Winner of the DSTA for Best Comedy **
    It was Ginny’s idea originally to send the children to the local muggle primary school. She found the idea fascinating and was keen for her children to learn about the muggle world as much as possible before they started their magical education. Harry hadn’t considered the idea until Ginny suggested it when Albus was only days old. His only reservations came from his own experience at any school that wasn’t Hogwarts and Ginny gently reminded him that this would be different. Three little Potters with emerging magic and an unsuspecting muggle primary school, what could possibly go wrong?
