The Make TreacleTart Cry Challenge | 15 April 2020

Recommended Posts

Hey HPFT Family. 

Lately, I've had some things going on in my life that have been a bit heavy. The most frustrating part of it is that even when I want to vent and get the emotions out, I'm not a big crier. So this is where I ask you for help. The challenge is to write a story that will make me cry. It can be a bad breakup, a death, a divorce, or any other sad thing that you think will get the tears flowing.  If you'd like a prompt to get you started, feel free to pick a number 1-50 and I will assign you an option.

Here's some specifics: 

Accepted Fandoms: HP, OF, Poetry, GOT, The Witcher, Any Star Trek, The Lunar Chronicles, The Hunger Games, LOTR (I'm sure there's some I've forgotten, so if you want to write another fandom, just check with me first, please)

Accepted Ratings: Anything allowed on the HPFT archives 

Deadline: April 15th, 2020

Rules:

  1. Must have “For The Make TreacleTart Cry Challenge” in either the story or chapter summary.
  2. No pre-written stories allowed, but new chapters of currently published pieces are fine.
  3. Must follow site guidelines and TOS and be posted on HPFT
  4. Multi-chaptered fics are allowed -- minimum 2 chapters posted/in the queue by deadline
  5. Multiple entries are allowed (and highly encouraged)
  6. Can be combined with other challenges

Rewards: 

  • All entries will receive a review!
  • Award graphics for first, second, and third place
  • :third: - 2 reviews on a story(ies) of your choice
  • :second: - 3 reviews on a story(ies) of your choice

Would you consider accepting one specific chapter of a longer work as an entry?

As long as it's a new chapter, then yes, that's perfectly acceptable.

I'm planning on re-writing (and finishing) my Goodbye set. The chapters I have up I'm going to re-write, but then the remainder of the story will be completely new chapters. Not sure if the re-writing will count, but once I get the actually new chapters up, I'll try to get you crying!

Put me down as a maybe, only because I'm notoriously bad at actually completing challenges.

I'm very bad at completing challenges, but I suppose I'll give this a try (consider me a maybe :ninjavanish:) Can I see a random prompt?

My history of completing challenges is pretty bad, but I’ll give it a shot. Could I see prompt 19 please? 😘

I've had this story idea for YEARS. Long before HPFF closed. Maybe it's time to write it, and it sort of fits the challenge perfectly. 

Put me down as a maybe ☺️
