Jo Raskoph

Challenge Name: HPFT Around The World Challenge

Challenge Creator: Jo Raskoph

Short Challenge Description: Participants were asked to provide a song from their culture and a short description as a prompt for the next person.

Fandom(s) Included: Harry Potter

Challenge Winners: Oh, I'll get to that, but first –

 

it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I announce to you the long awaited

„HPFT Around the World Challenge“ Results

We had a total of five prompts of which two were picked up and resulted in a submission. The two writers competing in this challenge are therefore Paula (paulatheprokaryote) and Kenny (StarFeather), both of which are well renown for their talent and skill. They are in fact very well matched competitors and so the challenge was bound to be very exciting.

 

Kenny entered the competition on July 30th with his piece „Fireflies“.

Let’s take a look at this: Kenny presents us with a very distinct setting for a relatively short moment where time is relatively neutral. With Ginny and Harry he uses major canon characters, which might give him an advantage as they are already well developed and give his story a strong foundation. 610 words, quite short and easy to read.

 

Then on the first of August Paula submitted her entry „Because You Have a Heart Like a Mine“ and it is a strong rival: Paula presents a more intricate plot told in a series of small scenes stretching over a day, so time is condensed. She chooses a minor canon character and an original character which gives her a lot of room  for her development of them but also puts her under pressure to pack a lot of information in her longer story of 1224 words.

 

(For better comparability both word counts are results of https://wordcounter.net/ and may differ from the ones on the respective archives.)

 

So we have two entries which seem quite similar at first glance: They are both romance, both one-shots, both past tense, both third person limited point of view. But Paula and Kenny, while similarly talented, employ very different manners of narrating their respective stories. An exciting match for sure!

 

The entries were judged in two rounds:

The first part, making up 30% of the overall score, concerns the usage of the culture prompt. Here everyone providing a prompt could award up to five (5) points to the story using their propmt.

The second part, worth 70%, concerns the overall quality of the writing.

 

And now that all is set up, please lean back and enjoy while we jump right into the judging for the first part:

Paula provided the prompt

by Colin & Caroline for her culture (Southern US) and about Kenny’s use of this prompt in his story Paula said:

He did such a great job with the chapter and I think really captured the song overall. The only thing I still wanted was the nostalgic feeling that the song really harped on but I think it's was still brilliant.

I'd give Kenny 4.75/5  points.

Paula awarded Kenny a stunning 4.75 of 5 points for his excellent usage of her prompt.

 

Then we have my prompt

by Reinhard Fendrich for my culture (Austria)

Formally the song was excellently included in the story by way of repeated lines like the ones from the song, which can be found throughout the piece. That’s 2 points out of 2 for the song itself. Paula researched a lot and included lots of references to Austrian culture. That’s another 1 point of 1. What I am missing in her realisation is the disparity between crude means of expression and romantic sentiment which, to me, is a vital part of Austrian culture. (For this part I give her 1 of 2 points, because the romantic sentiment was spot on.)

So all in all I awarded Paula 4 out of 5 points for her usage of my prompt.

 

This translates to 24 %  for Paula and 28,5 % for Kenny so far – so Kenny is in the lead with a 4,5 % head start.

BUT the evaluation of overall writing is worth 70 % so everything is still possible for both competitors.

 

To judge the writing part I referenced a narrative marking guide from 2010 – of the 10 aspects mentioned in the guide I took into consideration 5 to judge (omitting vocabulary, sentence structure, punctuation, grammar, and paragraphing).

 

These five criteria (rearranged to match the format of one-shots) are:

1. Audience

The writer’s capacity to orient, engage and affect the reader

2. Text structure and cohesion

Text structure: The organisation of narrative features including orientation, complication and resolution into an appropriate and effective text structure

Cohesion: The control of multiple threads and relationships over the whole text, achieved through the use of referring words, substitutions, word associations and text connectives

3. Ideas

The creation, selection and crafting of ideas for a narrative

4. Character:

The portrayal and development of character

5. Setting:

The development of a sense of place, time and atmosphere

So now the setup is complete: Here comes the second part of the competition!

 

Fireflies:

1. Audience: Like I mentioned before, Kenny certainly chose his assets well to orient the reader as he is using well known and developed characters. He was able to fully exploit this advantage – the reader can not get lost here and the narrative is engaging from the start. I give him a full (1) point for this aspect.

2. Text structure and cohesion: Kenny’s story is half as long as Paula’s and describes only one scene. However, he managed to structure his narrative into distinct stages (set up, development and resolution) so this is a full half (0,5) point for this aspect. For cohesion I award a quarter point because there are hardly and threads here to control, but those are controlled well (0,25).

3. Ideas: Of the three things the specs say ideas can be (created, selected and crafted), Kenny’s strength is obviously the second – his story contains few elements, but they are all perfectly selected and tell exactly the story he wants to tell. This makes a good 0,66 points.

4: Character: Kenny beautifully manages to build on the given characters he’s working with. Lines like “Your hair…is different from Ron’s.”, spoken by – you guessed it – Harry, are almost painfully in character (in a good, no great way). However I’m taking a quarter of a point off here, because I felt Ginny’s character was less developed than Harry’s. Of 12 spoken lines, she speaks only 4 and her lines are a tiny bit more generic than Harry’s. So it’s 0,75 points here.

5: Setting: Kenny’s scene is lovingly set, his descriptions are lovely and accurate and without further preamble I give him another full (1) point!

 

Score: 1 + 0,75 + 0,66 + 0,75 + 1 = 4,16 of 5 points to Fireflies by Kenny! That’s 58,24 % of 70 %.

 

 

Because You Have a Heart Like a Mine:

1. Audience: Despite choosing a minor character as her protagonist (which could have caused a little confusion in the reader), Paula manages to firmly deliver her scenes to the audience in a way that leave nothing lacking. So a well deserved full (1) point!

2. Text structure and cohesion: Paula had more scenes to manage than Kenny and she did really well, but I felt the structure of setup, development and resolution was a little out of proportion with set up falling a tad short. So that’s a quarter (0,25) point. Cohesion was masterful, however. Paula chose to use repeated and modified lines to hold the narrative together which worked really well despite all the different scenes. This is a full half (0,5) point which makes 0,75 points for this aspect.

3. Ideas: The sheer fullness of scenes Paula presents us with are very well created, selected and crafted and earn her a full (1) point.

4. Character: Paula lets us get to know her main characters through a collection of moments, a technique which allows her to present multiple facets of their personalities. Paula also explores the character of the two character’s (potential) relationship which makes for a very in-depth exploration overall. A well deserved full (1) point.

5. Setting: The rapidly changing scenes would have needed a tiny bit more setting than they got – the plot got away from the scenes in a way. This makes 0.5 of 1 possible point.

 

Score: 1 + 0,75 + 1 + 1 + 0,5 = 4,25 of 5 points to Because You Have a Heart Like a Mine by Paula! That’s 59,5% of 70%!

 

So Paula narrowly wins the second round!

 

 

Which brings us to a final score of:

Fireflies: 28,5 % + 58,24 % = 86,74 %

Because You Have a Heart Like a Mine: 24 % + 59,5 % = 83,5 %

This narrow outcome once again reflects the excellent work delivered by both of you, Paula and Kenny. I am impressed by your skill and very proud you chose to participate in this challenge. Thank you both!

ichigopan

Challenge Name: Meaning Behind the Word

Challenge Creator: ichigopan

Short Challenge Description: Using a given word prompt, incorporate said given word into your story however you want.

Fandom(s) Included: Harry Potter

Challenge Winners

 

I honestly thought I may have set the bar too high for this challenge. To write a story based on this one random word given to you? So many choices and so many ways. What’s a writer to do?

 

Before I announce the winners, here’s the full list of the prompts:

1. Simple

2. Hope

3. Fear

4. Technology

5. Hubris

6. Showdown

7. Clouds

8. Awaken

9. Inhuman

10. Space

11. Taboo

12. Ethereal

13. Travel

14. Shadows

15. Isolation

16. Explosion

17. Entangle

18. Justice

19. Guilty

20. Unity

21. Rhapsody

22. Survival

23. Sound

24. Swindle

25. Zero

 

I know I was very vague when I wrote “incorporate it into your story however you want.” I wanted to see how writers would approach this challenge. Each of the participants showed me what they got.

 

Third place: And in the Distance, Church Bells by Khalessi

tumblr_inline_ocows5tujK1ry9iau_400.jpg

 

Using “awaken” as her prompt, Khalessi utilized both the word and its meaning. With that as her foundation, she had built up a very tense and foreboding atmosphere where Hermione has to choose between breaking Ron’s heart or marry him despite the love being gone. Inspired by “The Lady or the Tiger,” Khalessi has created quite the dilemma for our favorite frizzy haired witch.

 

REWARD: 1 review on the story of your choice and a Challenge Graphic.

 

tumblr_inline_ocowsueuNg1ry9iau_400.jpg

Second place: Kore (M) by DirigiblePlums

 

With “explosion” as her prompt, Dirigible_Plums explored a different route with her writing: she did it in the form of Greek mythology. Using “Persephone, Queen of the Underworld” as her influence, it’s a very quick and enjoyable read with fabulous usage of imagery of calm, yet explosive dialogue exchanged between Hermione and Tom. Plums’ ability to think outside the box with her writing format left me very much impressed and inspired.

 

REWARD: 3 reviews on any story of your choice and a Challenge Graphic.

 

And *drumroll*

 

tumblr_inline_ocowt3SoFE1ry9iau_400.jpg

First place: To Glory (15+) by victoria_anne

 

Dedicating herself to “hubris” as her prompt, victoria_anne took this and ran with it. The first chapter to her story embodied the absolute meaning of “hubris” through Tom’s train of thought and actions. This story, I feel, captured the essence of what this challenge was all about.

 

REWARD: 5 reviews on any story of your choice, Favorite Story/Bookmark, a Challenge Graphic and bragging rights to your fellow competitors/authors.

 

Congratulations to you three!

1ST PLACE:

(M) A Little Like This by Banshee.

Julie’s writing was so powerful. The emotions were enticing, the descriptions were descriptive, the story line was perfectly crafted, and her characterization was spot on! You can really see the love Seamus and Dean have for each other.

This story unfolds around a prophecy by Cassandra Vablatsky in the 1960s, warning about the rise of a Dark Lord. Action is taken by the actual Minister for Magic, however by the end of the story we all realize that the warning was deadly misinterpreted.
