Version of Me Challenge| 31 August 2020

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Challenge Name: Version of Me Challenge

Challenge Deadline: August 31, 2020

Accepted Fandom(s): HP or OF (feel free to PM with thoughts on another fandom, I just haven't gone much out of HP besides like .... Sarah J Maas books, but as much as I tumblr creep I never have read fanfiction for them). 

Accepted Ratings: Any

Challenge Details: The story should be focused/based around and include in the story the following quote: "The version of me you created in your mind is not my responsibility."

Rules: 

  1. Must be posted to at least HPFT archives
  2. Length must be no more than 25,000 words (whether that's broken up in chapters or not is up to you)
    • If multiple chapters, you must have at least through the part of the story that includes the quote by the deadline
  3. Any genre / fic type (i.e., songfic, etc.).
  4. Must include "for aurevoir's Version of Me Challenge" in the story summary
  5. No more than two entries per person for my sanity
  6. Can be combined with other challenges
  7. No pre-written stories and cannot be connected to a story already being posted (b/c otherwise I can't judge the story if I don't know what's going on!) UNLESS the story can be read as a stand-alone (i.e., if you post a one-shot that is tangentially related to another story, so long as it can be read as a stand alone story).
  8. No student/teacher (whether present or former) romantic pairings. These just .... really make me uncomfortable. And regardless of how wonderful your writing is, I won't be able to get the inherent power imbalance of the relationship to give the writing a fair chance. If you wonder if your story would toe this line, feel free to message me. 

Rewards:

  • I will leave a review on every single story that is entered.
    • If multi-chapter, I will try to leave one on each chapter, but at least will leave it on the last chapter at minimum (I have no idea what my work life will look like when it ends). 
  • Third Place: Added to my favorites, award graphic + a "skip the line" graphic pass (can request a graphic even if my queue is full and get request filled before others).
    • If posted on AO3, I will add to my favorites there as well if you give me the link
  • Second Place: Added to my favorites, award graphic, pic-spam for the story, + "skip the line" graphic pass.
    • If posted on AO3, I will add to my favorites there as well if you give me the link
  • First Place: Added to my favorites, award graphic, any graphic for the story (banner / chapter image / other), + two "skip the line" graphic passes
    • If posted on AO3, I will add to my favorites there as well if you give me the link
  • I reserve the right to have an honorable mention or other random categories if I get a lot of entries

I'm sure I've forgotten something and I'll think of it later. :)

edited because I wrote my deadline like an american and no one else does so

This will fit nicely with my Noir McMalfoy--count me in!

(McMalfoy is my name for the rare-pair ship Abraxas Malfoy/Minerva McGonagall)

Right? Of course, immediately after I posted in this thread I realized how much I was going to have to write to get to the quote :elmofire:

How stickler are we about this exact phrasing? Is it chill if I use it in the present tense instead of past?

I’d like the phrasing to mostly stay the same, but changing created to create present tense is fine!

:elmofire: the upside to this is I'm taking 1-2 weeks off in the middle of September when I'm supposed to be moving and will definitely procrastinate unpacking so I can read. 

Since we're almost just a month out o: the list
