The Great Collab Results

From December to May this year, all four Houses participated in a massive writing collaboration, working in different teams with new themes and challenges every two months. After six months of hard work (and many, many words), the Great Collab of 2018-2019 has come to a close, and points have been tallied! 
 

Round 1: New Beginnings

A fitting theme for the start of a six-month-long adventure, yeah? For round 1, Gryffindor and Slytherin teamed up to form Team Frosty, and Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw banded together to make up Team Rudolph. Team Frosty received the challenge themes 'slow build' and 'vampirism', and Team Rudolph got 'space opera' and 'teen pregnancy.'

By the numbers...

Stories

Team Frosty
Gryffindor: 7 total (7 using challenge themes)
Slytherin: 10 total (10 using challenge themes)

Team Rudolph
Hufflepuff: 5 stories (3 using challenge themes)
Ravenclaw: 21 stories (15 using challenge themes)

Round 2: Back from the Brink

The second round saw Gryffindor unite with Ravenclaw as Team Cupid, and Hufflepuff team up with Slytherin as Team Hathor to tackle the theme 'back to the brink.' This round was particularly prolific for all houses - Team Cupid had the challenge themes of 'internalised oppression' and 'careers', while Team Hathor was working with 'time travel' and 'fate/prophecy.'

By the numbers...

Stories

Team Cupid
Gryffindor: 16.5 total (14.5 using challenge themes)
Ravenclaw: 15.5 total (11.5 using challenge themes)

Round 3: Take Me Home

The final round of this year's Great Collab was all about coming back to where you belong (as well as, uh, the ~alternative~ interpretation of the phrase 'take me home'), and we had some wonderful stories come out of both Team Tulip - Gryffindor and Hufflepuff - and Team Bluestar - Ravenclaw and Slytherin. The challenge themes this time were 'sports' and 'magical creatures' for Team Tulip, and 'bullying' and 'infidelity' for Team Bluestar.

By the numbers...

Gryffindor: 5 total (3 using challenge themes)
