I'm gonna be a maybe. I have a Pansy one-shot Chandelier I've been wanting to rewrite for ages. Plus a Rose/Scorpius short story, Define Insanity, that I'm thinking about reworking into a one-shot. Both are currently on my HPFF page, but of course, that's about to be gone. I didn't want to transfer them the HPFT until I'd fixed them.

I have a question, what about a story that is already published to HPFT but I want to completely revamp - the plot and story remain the same but I'm fleshing out the prose giving more depth. 

Example

Original 1st Paragraph:

Quote

Years, so many of them had passed. It was hard to believe how many actually had come and gone for the Fat Friar. It seemed like just yesterday he was at Hogwarts in it's early days, spreading his gentle message when things seemed to go so topsy-turvy. He would never forget the fight that grew between Lords Godric and Salazar. He thought he would never see anything as horrid as that again. Sadly, the ghost was mistaken. 

 

New 1st Paragraph:

Quote

Days months and years all rolled into one.  Time started to cease to have meaning.  Decades were lumped together and life took on a similar ebb and flow.  Like clockwork children came to Hogwarts and children left. Occasional one or two would return in various roles in the school others were never seen or heard from again.  It was the way of life and it was one the Fat Friar accepted.  Though he could not remember the names of each child he’d been blessed with, he loved all dearly and would do anything in his limited power to help.  It was a task he had failed to do in life and so he took it upon himself to live in an eternal purgatory to better serve those in need.  After all, the Lord’s work was never done and so he would continue on, each day month and year tending to the needs of the children whom he loved dearly.  

 

The original story was hosted onto the HPFT archives quickly to save it but was originally written probably about 10 years ago.  If you want it to be completely new to the archives, I might be able to still swing this challenge but have to ask if working with a chaptered story does it have to be posted in its entirety or just the first chapter?

That's fine ^_^ Doesn't matter where it's posted so long as the rewrite itself isn't a pre-written (which I get is kind of a grey area, considering the nature of the challenge, you know) If you're going to be editing the chapter(s) that are posted with the new versions just let me know. (Also I kind of want to read the old version before you fix it if that's the case).

Okay so I got the re-write finished.  I made double sure that I hadn't started the re-write before this challenge was posted.

Here is the original story on Fanfiction.net (It was written before Aug 2012 but that is the earliest copy I can find as HPFF is no more.)

The original post date on HPFT was just a basic copy paste of the original story.  It has since been completely re-worked so with out further ado

Gentle Acts of Kindness

I might be back with added entries.

I have a piece that wrote years ago about Kingsley Shacklebolt that at the time it wasn’t fleshed out or written well.  It was a shitty first draft. It’s about him going from ordinary guy to Minister for Magic.  It’s within for the Vocational Challenge but it might work here.  🤗. We cool?  It’ll get past the awful first draft phase.

Omg... I shouldn't be doing this... but sign me up as a maybe. Haha. xD My very first story was back in 2010. Though the story is long gone from the archives itself before the archives had shut down, it still resides in my mind. :$ I already have it reworked in my mind. I can share in my author's note what it was originally about in my chapters. :P

As long as it's something that you've rewritten/reworked that fine ^_^

At least two, if you can manage that by the deadline. ^_^

My entry chapter 7 The Astronomy Tower , Harry Potter and Druidic Magic(M)  and chapter 8 is waiting for validation.

The old chapter (if you would check it)is here, chapter 3 ( it was moved to ffnet from the previous HPFF) , Harry Potter and a Daughter of Druid (M)

(Both the old and the new story are written about investigation, Auror's things.)

I posted my first three chapters yesterday, but then I realized I didn't come back here to say that.  Oops!  

Here is the original,(M) and HERE are the updated chapters for Hermione Granger: Who's The Monster Now? on AO3.

It should be up on HPFT as soon as it goes through the queue.
