The Underrated Character Challenge | 31st July 2020

Recommended Posts

beyond the rain

Challenge Name:   The underrated character challenge

Challenge Deadline: 31st July 2020

Accepted Fandom(s): HP only

 Accepted Ratings: all!

Challenge Details: I love minor characters. Most of the time, they're like a blank page - just waiting for someone to give them a voice. For this challenge, I want you to do that! Post that you're in and I will give you a choice of TWO underrated characters. You can write about just one, but extra points if you manage to fit in both! If neither of those characters interest you, I will give you a third option -  but after that, no changes! 

Additional Rules: 

- you can write a multi-chaptered fic, but I will just be judging the first chapter 

- "for beyond the rain's underrated character challenge" must be somewhere either in your summary, or your chapter notes!

- there can be other characters, but this piece should centre around the underrated character!

Rewards:

1st place: banner made by me, three reviews 

2nd place: banner made by me, two reviews

3rd place: banner made by me, one review

 

If you have any questions, ask below! Have fun, and happy writing!

I actually had to google the characters you got from the generator 😅 Eleanor Branstone and Malcom Baddock. Both of them started school in 1994. Eleanor was sorted into hufflepuff and Malcom was a slytherin!

@Chemical_Pixie - absolutely, your third option is terry boot

@grumpy cat - alright! You have Euan Abercrombie (a gryffindor who started in Harry's fifth year), and Theodore Nott!

@abhorsen. - okay, the generator has given you Andrew Kirke, he replaced the Weasley twins and played beater when they received a life-ban by Umbridge. The books also say he was a pretty bad player. Your second character is Astoria Greengrass! 

Participants: 

abshorsen. - andrew kirke, astoria greengrass 

chemical_pixie - dorcas meadowes, ernie macmillan, terry boot

crimson quill - eleanor branstone, malcom baddock, gideon prewett

grumpy cat - euan abercrombie, theodore nott

Lost_Robin - marlene mckinnon, igor karkaroff 

MadiMalfoy - millicent bagnold, rodolphus lestrange

mymischiefmanaged - alicia spinnet, cormac mclaggen 

Noelle_Zingarella - emma dobbs, augusta longbottom

nott theodore - emmeline vance, pomona sprout

RonsGirlFriday - katie bell, marcus belby

victoria_anne - penelope clearwater, aurora sinistra

VaguelyCreativeName - bill weasley, aunt muriel

WanderWitch - lee jordan, dennis creevey

 

Quick heads up, I will try and avoid anyone getting the same character - but the generator I'm using is a little bit limited. The characters might end up getting a bit more obscure soon!

Would I be able to get a third character as well, just for some extra inspiration? :)
