I have read trunk stories before, but that was amongst the best. Well done.

I would have loved to see everyone's reaction to their return after 2 weeks. and fred and George's reaction to being locked in a Death eater holding compartment...and what H/R/Hr did about the summoning thing and the smelling thing. Otherwise it was a good story.

Read for Judging: I’ll start with the CON's because there are so few of them, and there nick-picking anyway. One, no one in cannon, not even Dumbledore ever apparated into number # 4, my guess is something to do with the blood protection…Yeah-yeah - minor detail – I know. Second, your start 2 days after Harry’s BD a paragraph down its 3 weeks before BD which is it. Finally - Three, the trio flooed into the ‘Leaky Cauldron,’ from where exactly? Dursleys aren’t hooked up…are they? Okay the pain is over now the good stuff the PRO's: (1) HG nagging Harry right fro the off…classic, (2).Lack of proper food at number # 4 nice bit of cannon – well done. RW being ignored by HP and HG over truck suggestion, well you got that in one! (3) And my favorite, HG reaction to leering-randy clerk – absobloodylutly priceless… Four stars a knife and a fork - 6.5 from the French judge … but you know how they are. Oh the Gred and forge hunt bacon dung-bombs was a nice touch.
1) Yeah, blood-protection. Gives me a loophole for nigh-anything.
2) Yep, that one. I'm waiting for the prize-giving (I think it's unfair to change it before they give the prizes) before changing it. What can I say? People make mistakes, and my beta was 1 of the judges and couldn't help...
3) You'll remember Mr. Weasley secretly hooked up Number 4's Floo in GoF

Ah, the Defense Mechanism Panel. Don't we all wish we had something like that in our houses? ^_^

As a judge of the challenge, I loved the story, it was an OVERALL great story and with a minor tweaking can be one of the greatest I've read. The first time Ron was summoned, I was a little confused but I still loved the story!
Yeah, I know, poor Ron is great comic material, ain't he? ^_^

Judged for Challenge: This was a very good entry. I thought you evoked a whimsy, especially at the very beginning of the story, that was quite charming. My favorite feature was the Death Eater holding cell. Seems logical, and it is appropriate that they were discovered before it was all over so that we could see it put to use. Poor twins. I was also glad to see that Harry had the foresight to protect his assets. While I don’t think the Ministry at this point would try to freeze Harry’s assets, they don’t know how long the hunt will take and just what might happen in the interim or how ridiculous the Ministry might become. Prudent to take such precautions. The idea of Harry leaving them that note gave me a good laugh. Well done. Good luck with the challenge.

I have to compliment you on how through you were with both the trunk’s construction, and Harry and friend’s preparations. The way that the group had to put up with the search was great, especially when the twins found the wrong key. The only criticism that may arise is simply that Ginny appears in just a few sentences. Regardless, I really enjoyed it and I like the way that you painted the picture for us. Thanks. Eric B.
