THE PERSON OF COLOUR CHALLENGE
Deadline: 9 June 2017

The challenge is simple! Write a story featuring a person of colour in the Harry Potter fandom! For some inspiration, I shall list a few examples:
- Write an OC who is also a PoC!
- Write a canon PoC character! Eg: Cho Chang goes to Cairns to snorkel at the Great Barrier Reef
- Racebend a character! Eg: Neville Longbottom makes pho the way his grandmother used to make it, as part of his grieving process since she's passed away

Go crazy! You don't need to focus on their PoC-ness at all! Your story can be about Blaise Zabini hunting for dragons inside volcanoes in Hawaii. (That would be a great story, btw.) I do ask that if you make any sort of graphic for your story, please use a person of colour as the face claim.

Some further rules:
Fandom: Harry Potter
Archive of publication: HPFT. You can of course cross-post to wherever your heart desires, but our archives are new and small, so I want to support them in this way
Rating: Any.
Word limit: 10 000 words
Chapter limit: None
Number of entries allowed: You may enter multiple stories to this challenge

If you'd like to enter, let me know here, so we can all get hyped! When publishing, use that nifty "Challenges - any length" tag. Also in the summary, please include "For 800 words of heaven's The Person of Colour Challenge" or something to that effect. Then once posted, please send me the link. Posting it here is probably the easiest. If you're feeling fancy, you may also smoke signal me, however please take into consideration that I live in a windy place.

Prizes:
- ETERNAL GLORY.
- I will be reviewing all entries
- If I am exceptionally with it, there may be graphics involved.
- 1st prize: 3 bonus reviews on HPFT
- 2nd prize: 2 bonus reviews on HPFT
- 3rd prize: 1 bonus reviews on HPFT
- Winners will also feature in my signature for a while

Any questions/concerns/bribes (I accept chocolate), shoot them my way! I'm excited to see what people come up with!

Are pre-writtens allowed? I just posted a Cho Chang fic based in China a few days ago, which I think fits the requirements for this challenge. Of not, I'll be a maybe anyway :)
