Story:House Elf Cup Event #2: Name the Stain Chapter: Name the Stain

Hi there! I'm here for the winter wonderland.

 

 This is such a brilliant premise for a story. I never would have been able to come up with something like that. I like that you've aligned it with the Triwizard Tournament, showing how much the house elves wanted to be involved and were influenced by the events at Hogwarts (a thing that one might easily forget given we barely see any of them around Hogwarts). 

 

 I don't know why, but as the game progressed, I couldn't help but get Downton Abbey vibes. It's likee the house elves are the help, but because they are the help, they get to be involved in a lot of people's business and know a lot of little details. And linking the game with the characters we know and to details we know about of each of them only made this more brilliant and fun to read. It's such a small story, but it really brightened my day up a bit! And I'm all here for more house elf representation doing normal, fun things!

It's me again.

 

I like that this is going on at the same time as the Tri-Wizard Tournament.  That answers one of my questions from the last part (unless I missed it).  I think that Jo-Jo is a great name for a house elf and this definitely seems like the sort of competition one would come up with.  Who else could think that naming stains was an exciting game!?  And not even moving it out of the laundry room but doing their second event right there made me giggle.

 

The last stain was definitely my favourite.  The double meaning for "head of Slytherin house" was a nice touch.  Poor Snape, even the house elves were perplexed by the greasiness of his hair.  Dobby did say it best - disgusting.

 

I like that we got to see more of Dobby in this, especially since he is clearly so happy with these... unusual tasks.  I did appreciate that, despite that, one of the house elf OCs got the trickiest question.  It may have been a bit more realistic if all the answers weren't from some of our main crew, but in humour realism is not exactly vital or even the goal.

 

Having read the first two events, I have to commend you on your creativity in making a very unique event into funny stories.  That is pretty difficult to pull off at times.
