I'm working on a story that I think fits quite neatly. I have a lot of passion for it but, as ever, I'm not sure if I'll get it done.

Could you put me down as a maybe? Working title: 'The Trial of Susan Bones'

Would something count as a scandal if it, like, scandalised people - but isn't actually scandalous itself? And the story confronts that ideology/belief? Because if so, I have a plunny ^_^ (I know, it's really vague, sorry! If you want me to pm you with the idea so you can see if it fits, let me know!)

A plunny hit me this afternoon about a scandal involving Professor Flitwick and The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. I'll give it a go.

that sounds awesome!! ^_^

btw @Aphoride like a million years later, i think i understand the vague idea you mentioned - this would count as a scandal because obviously, some people think it is, and if the plot revolves around others "battling" the scandal/the ideology that thinks it's a scandal, that definitely counts ^_^

I have an idea for this, I think, but I'm not entirely sure if it fits the challenge. There is a scandal involved, but it doesn't actually occur in the course of the story - but the story largely concerns the aftermath of said scandal. I can explain in greater detail in private as well, as this might be to vague to make a judgment call on.

if the central part of the storyline is dealing with a scandal/the aftermath of a scandal, then it fits ^_^

I think I have an idea that fits this challenge. The question is whether it’ll actually get written or not. 😆
