The Ocean's 8 Heist Challenge | Deadline: September 6, 2018

Challenge Name: The Ocean's 8 Heist Challenge

Challenge Deadline: September 6, 2018

Accepted Fandom(s): Harry Potter, OF, and any other fandom that I'm at least semi-familiar with (feel free to ask if you're unsure! I'm just blanking on like every fandom I know right now)

Accepted Ratings: All

Challenge Details: After a long and dramatic twitter poll on which challenge idea I should go with (which resulted in a four-way tie across all four options), I swerved and picked this one at the very last second. One of my favorite types of films, books, stories, etc. ever is a good heist story, and one thing that I've discovered about myself is that I very much enjoy writing thieves in their element.

So I'm here to help you guys discover this part of yourselves, too! 😋

Basically, you just have to write a story that involves some kind of clever crime. (Doesn't necessarily have to be a heist. It can also be a prison break, some kind of revenge scheme, etc. Just something that's super cool and may not necessarily be 100% legal.)

Rules:

  • The story must be posted on the HPFT archives.
  • You may submit multiple entries.
  • There is no limit as to the length of the entry; however, if you're planning multi-chaps, please have at least two chapters completed by the deadline.
  • You may combine this with other challenges.
  • I will accept semi-prewritten entries: no completed stories, but if you have a WIP that fits this premise, I will accept a new chapter of the WIP.
  • Must have "for just.a.willow.tree's Ocean's 8 Heist Challenge" somewhere in the summary or story notes.

Rewards:

  • A review on each chapter of your entry. (If you're submitting new chapters of a WIP, however, I will only review the chapters written for this challenge.)
  • Third Place: 3 additional reviews; prize graphic.
  • Second Place: 5 additional reviews; prize graphic.
  • First Place: 7 additional reviews; prize graphic; link to story in my signature for one month.

I hope you guys have fun with this! And as always, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. 🤗
