The Historical Head Canons ChallengeChallenge Deadline:
19th June 2017Accepted Fandom(s):
Harry PotterAccepted Ratings:
HPFT (you can, of course, post your stories on other fanfiction archives, but the entries must be posted on HPFT to qualify for this challenge)Challenge Details:
Wizarding society and history in the Harry Potter universe is quite closely aligned to historical events in the real world - for example, Gellert Grindelwald's rise in Europe coincides with World War 2. So for this challenge, I want you to write about your historical head canons, and incorporate history into the wizarding world!
Have you always wanted to write about the Salem Witch Trials? Do you have head canons about the Fat Friar, or Nearly Headless Nick? How does the character of Nicholas Flamel fit into history? Now is your chance to write about all of it!
For this challenge, you can write a story set in any country, in any historical period, featuring any characters from the wizarding world (including OCs). All that I ask is that you let me know what you're planning on writing about - I'm fairly familiar with British and Western European history, but if you're writing about an event set elsewhere, then I'll read up on it before checking out your challenge entry, so that I can do it full justice.
I'm accepting one-shots or short stories of up to 10,000 words
- if you're going to enter a short story, please try and have at least two chapters up by the deadline
. I'll review at least one chapter of every entry.
Multiple entries are welcomed, but I'm not accepting pre-written stories for this challenge.Prizes:
- First place will receive 5 reviews on HPFT
- Second place will receive 3 reviews on HPFT
- Third place will receive 2 reviews on HPFT
- Links to the winning stories will feature in my signature
And I think that's everything! If you have any questions, ask away. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
