The Say Goodbye Challenge - Deadline: 2 March 2018

Recommended Posts

The Say Goodbye Challenge!
 

Challenge Deadline:  March 2nd, 2018
Accepted Fandom(s): Harry Potter, The 100, The Raven Cycle, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, original fiction**
Accepted Length: One-shot up to 5,000 words.
Accepted Sites: HPFT
Accepted Ratings: A-M as accepted on the archives
Challenge Details: 

The challenge, my friends, is simple.  In less than 5,000 words, I want you to write me a one-shot where your main character has to say goodbye.  It doesn't necessarily have to be to a person; it can be a special place or a significant object from their lives as well. It can be a permanent goodbye or a temporary goodbye; the choice is yours.  The point of this challenge is to express the character's emotions, and show the significance of the thing or person they're saying goodbye to; I want you to really make me feel for the character.  Show me rather than tell me; be creative!

If you’re stuck, I have a list of 50 characters and 30 places you can choose from. You can switch up to three times, and you don’t have to use your prompts at all. Up to three people can use the same prompts. 
**Please note that while the following fandoms are accepted and encouraged, my prompt lists are strictly for HP. If you want to do one of the fandoms listed above and need some help, let me know and I'm sure I can think of something :)


Rules: 

  1. Must be posted to HPFT -- let's support our archive, ya'll. 
  2. Must follow the site's rules and guidelines.
  3. Must have for dreamgazer220's Say Goodbye Challenge somewhere in the summary or story notes.
  4. Can switch your prompts up to three times.
  5. Up to three people can use the same prompt.
  6. Multiple entries are allowed.
  7. Can be combined with other challenges.
  8. No pre-written stories.
  9. Can be any genre or era.
  10. Only accepting one-shots or drabbles.

Rewards:

Each entry will receive a review from me.

3rd Place: ONE additional prize review, (possibly) a prize graphic, and a favorite story.
2nd Place: THREE additional prize reviews, (possibly) a prize graphic, and a favorite story.
1st Place: FIVE additional prize reviews, a picspam representing your story, (possibly) a prize graphic, a favorite story, and eternal glory.

(I’m hoping that I’ll be able to have someone to make the prize graphics for me, so that could be subject to change.)


So come one, come all! Sign up and if you manage to make me cry, you get bonus points.

I'm so bad at following up with challenges but I want to give this a try. I might have a couple of ideas, too, but I still want to check out some prompts...

Can I see character 26 and place 7, please?

Of course! Character 26 is Justin Finch-Fletchley and place 7 is a Hogwarts corridor. Let me know if either of these work or if you want to switch :)

Me with Lavender Brown maybe in one chapter of a multi-chaptered story.

Is it okay to be categorized as one-shot entry?

Guess I'll see what I can do with those (I wanted to write more Hufflepuff characters anyway) :P

Awesome!  Let me know at any point if they don't work.

For this particular challenge, I'm unfortunately only accepting traditional one-shots; I'm looking for a clear beginning, middle, and end. If that still works for you, let me know, and I'm excited to see what you come up with for Lavender!

Thank you for clarification, Jill. I'll try Lavender, Ron /maybe Seamus in one-shot.

Hey, Bex! I'd love to see you write McGonagall. The prompts I have are just lists of characters or places, so I can give you a random place, or think of something on a whim and see if it works for you? Let me know! :)

a random place or a random prompt would be cool, I just need something to get my mind going aha :)

Eep, I totally meant to respond to this earlier, sorry!  I couldn't think of any good prompts, but how about The Three Broomsticks for a random place? Does that help?
