Happy Birthday Daniel

It is 23 July in London and Hogsmeade.  Everyone at Sink Into Your Eyes would like to wish Mr. Daniel Radcliffe a very happy twenty-sixth birthday (wow, it seems like just last year at this time he turned twenty-five).  For the three people on the planet who don't know, Daniel is the actor who portrays Harry Potter, one half of the special couple to whom this fan fiction site is dedicated.

Cake, butter beer, and live music will be rovided throughout the day in SIYE's Virtual Ballroom Two.  The boss is even allowing me to attend now that we've won the court case regarding the exploding disco ball and those Freedonian tourist (which really wasn't my fault...entirely).

Mischief (safely, sanely) managed!

The Cost of Everything Update #1

For the next three weeks, Harry was receiving packages of mail from Gringotts.  They included the cost of a year's tuition at Hogwarts in galleon by galleon detail.  Not every student was paying the same amount; the pure-bloods paid less while the Muggelborn were paying the highest.  Also, there was a number of items being paid for that Harry never received.  After asking a few discrete questions among his classmates, a lot of other people didn't receive some things either.

In the middle of a crowded lunch, Harry stood up and spoke out loud.  "Hannah, may I borrow your Student Handbook you received at the beginning of this school year, please?  I didn't receive mine."

"I don't know what you're talking about, Harry." she replied.  "I didn't receive any handbook."

"Kevin, can I look at yours?"

"No." was his reply.  "I don't have one."

"Mandy, did you receive your Student Handbook?  Your parents paid seven galleons for it."

"I have no idea what you mean, Potter."

"Ok.  Did any half-blood or Muggleborn student receive their annual Student Handbook at the beginning of this year?  Please raise your hand.  You all were charged for one as part of your tuition."  Harry said louder.

When no one raised their hand, Harry gave Professor McGonagall a stern look.  "As Assistant to the Headmaster for Students Affairs, do you have all our handbooks that we were obviously not given?  Or is the staff of Hogwarts just pocketing the seven galleons every half-blood and Muggleborn student paid?"  That got everybody's attention!

What's got your attention?  Care to voice your opinion in a story for the Challenge?

The Votes Have Been Tallied

Where's that Time-Turner again?  It would make moving from one state to another so much easier.  Wait, where did I put my wand again?

Here are the results of the May/ June Dumbledore Silver Trinkets Award Winners.  There was a winner who received Honorable Mention as it has already won the category this calendar year.  Congratulations to all who were nominated and the nominations are once again opened.

The Cost of Everything Challenge (2015-3)

During a visit to Gringotts Bank, the Potter account manager requested a meeting with Harry.  The Goblin asked why he was paying twice the amount of other students attending Hogwarts.  Was he getting extra education, better accommodations, etc?  Harry didn't know so he asked how much does everything cost for what he was being taught.  Misunderstanding Harry, the manager said he would send him all the material within the week.  Harry started to receive numerous Hogwarts documents and the cost of education the average person was not meant to see or learn of.

The Challenge is to write a story concerning Harry receiving all this material explaining what is supposed to be taught, qualifications, costs, salaries, and everything you can think of that he shares with all the students.  Also, why didn't the non-purebloods receive the student handbook at the beginning of each year, costing them 7 galleons.  Kind of expensive for a book you didn't get.

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 Cost of Everything Challenge (2015-3) sub-category of SIYE Challenges and be submitted by midnight SIYE Time, Saturday, August 15, 2015.

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.

4. The categories for judging are Best Overall, Most Discombobulated, Most Revealing, and The People’s Choice Award.

The Portraits Challenge Update #2

Returning to the Common Room late one evening from the kitchens by way of one of the hidden passageways, Harry asks one of the portraits he's gotten to know well if there  were more secret passageways that nobody remembers.

"You know, there are eleven ways out of the castle.  I believe you know of four of them.  Three may have been closed or collapsed." the portrait replied.

"Eleven!  I've heard of seven.  And yes, four are unusable." Harry exclaimed.

"Well, there's the Shrieking Shack one, the one to that chocolate store in town, the one to the back side of the lake, the troop entrance on the other side of the mountain, the chamber one I think you found, and..."

"Wait. the troop entrance?  That one I haven't heard of.  Or at least by that name."

"Yes.  During war times when the castle was under assault, troops and supplies came through from the other side of the mountain through a hidden passage through the old storage rooms, weapons room and the sleeping quarters.  If you go to the second floor, there's a large closet where the wall moves away, down a long flight of stairs..."

"A weapons room?"

"Oh, yes.  That's where the troops lived and trained.  There's a whole compound set up for 500 men to live and train."

So what do you want to learn about Hogwarts castle?  I'm sure there's plenty more to discover.  You just have to write about them.

*** A Late Note:  This Challenge is based on an original suggestion by Lazy Lazuli.  Thanks JP.

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?
