Challenge Nine: Detention...

Rules are there to be broken, right? Wrong! I've heard the Weasley twins use that argument countless times. At one point it became a sport among us staff to conjure up new ways to punish them. To no avail of course.


Everyone is getting detention, you may create your own crime (within bounds of family friendliness) and make your pick amongs the punishment prompts below. As always you may choose a written or visual entry.

Prompts
1. You serve your detention with Filch and Mrs Norris.
2. You go into the Forbidden Forrest with Hagrid and meet one friendly creature and one not so friendly.
3. You serve your detention with either McGonagall, Slughorn, Trelawney or Sprout.

Requirements
  • Your creation must contain a crime and punishment
  • Your story must be between 500 and 1100 words
  • If you go visual you may create several images but each may not exceed 500x500 and 150kb

Deadline: March 18th 11AM GMT

Entries can be send to: SusanBones, RemusLupinFan or Hes

Questions/comments go here as always

This one sounds quite fun. The creative bug might bite me again.

Re: Challenge Nine: Detention...

No Snape, but you include Slughorn, Sprout, and Trelawney?

This is....interesting.

Re: Challenge Nine: Detention...

Are we required to use a prompt, or are they merely suggestions?

The prompts are required. That's what makes it a challenge. (Well one thing anyway.)

It's nice that they give us options, though.

Thanks. I knew that they were required in the last challenge, but I wasn't sure for this one. Frankly, the less creativity I need to supply, the better.

Because you are going to try science? Then we had all better stand back!

Just kidding! Couldn't pass up the opportunity!

Re: Challenge Nine: Detention...

I keep saying I will do one and haven't, we'll see how this one goes...

How come Snape isn't an option?

Something told me to be thinking about detention. No really, I saw it in my crystal ball...

I'm mean like that

No, seriously, if I include Snape, he nearly always gets picked. We know what kind of detentions he gives. IMO other professors are more interesting for creativity.

Honestly, I have a move to prepare and two concerts to rehearse. You want to kill me with stress, don't you?

You're in second place! You can't quit now! We have almost two weeks. Think of your story as a stress reliever.

Besides. Hes is mean that way.

No, Hes is lovely

I'll try to think of something. It would be a pity to give up now...
