The Wizard Tales from Many Lands Challenge | 24 November 2019

Hi folks! I'm here with a new challenge:

picspam made by me!

Challenge Name: The Wizard Tales from Many Lands Challenge

Challenge Deadline: 24 November 2019

Accepted Fandoms: HP and OF for sure, but if you have another fandom that inspires you, I'm willing to consider it.

Accepted Ratings: A--T

Challenge Details: I love fairy tales, folk tales, and fables, and I would like to see some along the lines of The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I challenge you to to expand this collection with more fairy tales, folk tales, fables, etc, from the Wizarding World (or some other magic type world). You are more than welcome to write from the English Wizarding World that we know and love, but please feel free and encouraged to try another part of the Wizarding World too. What stories do little witches and wizards in Japan, or India, or Egypt, or Mexico, or Canada, grow up with? (No pre-writtens, meaning nothing currently posted in the archives.)

I am also challenging you to keep the rating to T or below because I'd like to share these stories with the little Zingarellas. When I told them about the last challenge I hosted, they began demanding asking very politely to be involved in the next challenge--and so I will be reading the entries to them as well. 

 

The entries will be judged according to the following rubric:

  • Writing Style/Mechanics--40%
  • Creativity--40 %
  • Rating given by the little Zingarellas 20 %

 

Prizes:

  • All entries will receive a review on each chapter.
  • The Third Place Winner will receive an award graphic, 3 reviews on stories of the author's choice and a link in my sig for a month.
  • The Second Place Winner will receive an award graphic, 5 reviews on stories of the author's choice and a link in my sig for a month.
  • The First Place Winner will receive an award graphic, 7 reviews on stories of the author's choice and a link in my sig for a month.

 

Let me know if you have any questions! I'm really looking forward to seeing what y'all come up with!

I'd like to answer! I'd also like to,ask a question. I have a story from years ago along these lines, i know you can't do prewrittens, but would you accept a rewrite where things change a lot but it's still along the sameish lines?

I am a very tentative maybe. I said that I wanted to try my hand at a folk tale and along comes this challenge, so I'm thinking that it may be a sign. I have the pieces of an idea, even. Fingers crossed!

here is my story, it’s a short little Fable, I hope you enjoy it. It’s something I picture Molly Weasley reading to Ronald Weasley as a boy. And actually I’m going to read it to my kids tomorrow night. 

It is not validated yet but that will be the link when it is. :)

 

thanks for inspiring this story!

This is so interesting! I might do a folk tale from India or Thailand, depending on what my muse feels!

I'll be a strong maybe 😄  with potential multiple entries!
