Story of the Week: You Know Who's On First By Iniga  Image of the Week: Quidditch victory By AgiVega  


Competition Name: The Anniversary Challenge, 2006
Competition End Date: Friday 13th October 2006

As many of your know, we have previously held a "Best of the Best" contest to celebrate our anniversaries as a Harry Potter Fanfiction archive. After careful consideration, the Admin Team have decided not to hold the "Best of the Best" contest this year. Instead, we would like to invite the incredible authors of PhoenixSong to participate in a special writing challenge featuring the acknowledgement of anniversaries for our favorite HP characters.

Because we have other contests throughout the year that especially invite new authors, we decided that this contest's competition would be limited to our current authors, as recognition of their talents and their creativity throughout the years. However, Readers, your job is just as important: you are to cast your votes for which of our contest entrants you like best. The winner in this part of voting will be awarded our Readers' Choice Award for The Anniversary Challenge, 2006.

Story Subject: Anniversaries. In addition to the obvious link to events such as wedding anniversaries, this can be a commemoration of the start of a relationship or an observance of the loss of someone dear. The spectrum is extremely varied, so have fun!

Story Length: 3000 words or less (to check your word count using MS Word, go to "Tools" in your menu bar and select "Word Count"):

The Challenge: What would a contest be without a little challenge? We've posted some phrases and sentences below. Your fic MUST use one of the following lines within the body of the story.

  • "You prat! You forgot again, didn't you?"
  • "I prefer third anniversaries," (character) said with a wink. "That's when you get ... leather."
  • "It's all Moaning Myrtle's fault, you know." (Myrtle could be replaced by another comedic tertiary character like Colin Creevey, Millicent Bulstrode or Professor Trelawney, etc.)
  • "Do you remember what you were thinking X years and two hours ago?"
  • There were visible reminders everywhere (character) looked.
