Basically, the Leaving Cert. English essays always include a couple of prompts for short stories, so I thought they could be used for a challenge. I might change the phrasing a bit so they can be used for novel lengths and other forms or whatever people want.

I guess the deadline ought to be the date of this year's exam - 7th June 2017.

Challenge Name: The Leaving Cert English Essay Challenge.

Challenge Deadline: 7 June 2017

Accepted Fandom(s): Original Fiction, Harry Potter. If you want to do something else and it doesn't require too much knowledge of the fandom, that's fine. If it does, ask if I know it, but I don't follow a lot of fandomy things.

Accepted Ratings: Anything up to M. No NC-17, even if you're on a site that allows them to be posted.

Challenge Details: Choose a year since 2001 and a or b, as most exams have two short story options. I don't care if more than one person does the same option as they are quite vague, so if you have an idea for something I've already given out, feel free to join in with it. You can change options as often as you like.

Ideally, post on HPFF, HPFT or Gluttony as I can review on those. Fanfic.net is fine if you allow anonymous reviewing.

No prewritten.

Rewards:
1st Place: 4 reviews.
2nd Place: 3 reviews.
3rd Place: 2 reviews.

Whoops, sorry, that was a typo. I mean since 2001, when the new course started. I just typed this year by accident, probably because I'd been typing it for the deadline and stuff. It's fixed now.

Jen25: 2005 b is a story beginning with the phrase, "For God's sake, do something."

BlackPixie: Do you want to choose a year?

Lovegood27: 2007 a is a story inspired by the sentence, “I tune in to conversations around me.”

WindingArrow: A photograph or collection of photographs must play a part in the plot.

Hi! I think I'll go with the collection of modern fairy tales. By the way, is this allowed to be combined with other challenges? :)

Absolutely. Combinations are welcome.

And I was actually thinking that that quote about conversations wasn't very inspiring.
