The Rule of Three Challenge: ends 1st May 2018

Recommended Posts

Challenge Name: The Rule of Three Challenge
Challenge Deadline: 1st May 2018
Accepted Fandom(s): Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, Doctor Who, American Horror Story
Accepted Ratings: any.
Challenge Details: I'm here with a very straightforward challenge. You post that you're in (no need to specify if you're a maybe or a taker) and tell me the fandom you'll be writing. Then I go to the random generator which will give me three characters from that fandom. Your fic can only be about these three characters. For example, say you got James Potter I, Hermione Granger, Godric Gryffindor. You could write a fic that mentions all three of them, you could write a fic from Hermione's POV, or maybe you could write something about James and Hermione, etc etc. However it must be centred about at least one of these characters. You couldn't have it be a Ron centred fic where all three of these characters are spoken of in passing. You could write a James/Hermione....James/Godric....James/Hermione/Godric (i mean how, I have absolutely no idea) if you wanted. It's pretty open ended, it just has to include at least one of the three characters listed. If you need a prompt like a first line, or a genre - I can give you something if you want, but that's not part of the challenge, that's just me attempting to be helpful, haha!

So just to recap: 
post you're in WITH a fandom (otherwise I'll just assume you're in with harry potter)

you'll get a choice of three characters

you can write a one shot about one/two/all of them. 

Rewards:

1st place - a banner for the story, an award sized graphic and three reviews

2nd place - an award sized graphic and two reviews

3rd place - an award sized graphic and a review

 

if you have any questions about the challenge PM me here or on TDA, and remember to have fun!

Oh, I happen to be working on a one-shot for other challenges that has Susan as one of the MCs (even if not The MC, probably...) Shall I enter it for your challenge, too?

Other question, do you accept multiple entries?

@FawkesyLady - you have Luna Lovegood, Marcus Flint, and George Weasley  

I'm going to say minimum wordcount 500 words, there's no maximum - but I'd prefer one-shot/short stories only ^_^

First entry, featuring Susan! :D

Goodbye, Jus (A)

I have a half-idea for an Arthur and Peter story, too... hopefully I will have a second entry for you sometime, but I can't promise anything. :$
