Happy Birthday Ginny

The sun is about to rise on the Ottery Saint Catchpole in Devon, England.  Today is Ginny Weasley-Potter's birthday.  Everyone at Sink Into Your Eyes would like to extend our best wishes to that half of our site's favorite couple.

Due to my involvement in planning our past birthday celebrations, and the bulldozer insident at Joanne and Harry's celebration here on 31 July, the insurance company, local fire brigades, police, Army, the Doctor, and Dumbledore's ghost have all barred me from going anywhere near Ginny's party.  As always, there will be music, cake (courtesy of Molly Weasley), and other refreshments there.  This year it's at The Penguin and the Anvil, a reportedly nice pub in the Ottery.

Happy Birthday Ginny.

Mischief managed!

2015-3 (3) The Cost of Everything Update #2

At  another busy dinner in the Great Hall, Harry stood up, walked over to the head table, and gave the headmaster some parchment.  He then snapped his fingers and parchment showed up under every non-pureblood's dinner plate, thanks to the house-elves.

"What is this?" Dumbledore asked.

"The first document is a Letter of Intent.  The Board of Governors for Hogwarts posted the annual tuition for this year as 4,350 Galleons.  However, it has come to my attention that Purebloods paid about 15% less than they should have and that non-purebloods paid about 15% more to make up for it.  Based on the disparity, Gringotts has initiated a class action lawsuit on my behalf against the Board of Governors and Hogwarts school to recover the extra gold the non-purebloods were charged."

"The second document is a summons for you to appear at Gringotts to answer the charge of theft from my trust vault.  You personally removed 10,000 galleons from my trust vault for my tuition this year.  Previous years are being looked at.  Your vault has been frozen by Gringotts till you can justify why you took 5,650 galleons more from me than the posted tuition.  I am not receiving any extra education, any further training, or better accommodations than the rest of the students here at Hogwarts."

"But I'm your magical guardian.  I'm allowed to take any funds to care for you." was Dumbledore's reply.

"You will have to prove that!  You sealed my parent's will so nobody can read it." Harry said out loud.

Harry is taking a stand.  Why don't you take one in the form of a Challenge story?

Happy Birthday Joanne and Harry

It is now 31 July in Edinburgh , Hogsmede, and  Orlando, Florida.  We at Sink Into Your Eyes would like to wish a very happy birthday to both J. K. Rowling and Harry Potter.

Music, cake, and refreshments will be provided throughout the day in SIYE Virtual Ball One.  I have not been invited due to the damage caused to Number Two on Daniel's birthday earlier this month (I really did think that the fire juggler would be a bit safer).

Mischief managed Joanne and Harry!

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?

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 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.

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?
