A/N: Challenge from FuryVore: The goblet of fire does not extinguish when it finishes choosing the champions. It is kept lit for the next stage of the tournament, which happens over the next few days. It is when the goblet 'justifies' its choice of picking the champion. It shows one or more trials the championhas gone through. I tweaked it a bit, but overall, it's still the same. I DON'T OWN HARRY POTTER. IF I DID MY NAME WOULD BE J.K ROWLING


The fire turned red, and spat out a slip of paper. Albus Dumbledore caught it in his wizened old hands,"From the Durmstrang Institution, Viktor Krum!" Cheering and clapping were heard, especially from the Slytherin side of the Great Hall, where the Durmstrang students sat. Viktor stood up and bowed to the clapping students and sat back down.

The goblet spit out another piece of parchment, Albus Dumbledore took it into his hands and read," From the Beauxbatons Academy, Fleur Delacour!" A smattering of applause was heard from the Ravenclaw table. Fleur stood up and curtsied to the crowd of students. Her silver hair swing side to side as her head dipped down.

The goblet turned red once again and spewed out a piece of paper. Dumbledore caught it in his hands, and said," And from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Cedric Diggory!" The whole school clapped, though the Hufflepuff table was the loudest. Cheering, and yelling at the top of their lungs. Cedric Diggory stood up, waved, offered a smile, and sat back down.

"Now that all of the champions have been chosen, we can now sit back, and watch why the goblet thought that the chosen champions were wor-" Albus Dumbledore was interrupted by the goblet turning red and spitting out another piece of paper. With trembling hands, Dumbledore took the paper and read it out," Harry Potter." Silence. Then the outraged cries began. Dumbledore shot of three bangs from his wand to silence the crowd. "Would Harry Potter stand up please?" Dumbledore said. Harry stood up with trembling legs, his face red. He was met with silence. He sat back down. "Now that the champions have been chosen, the goblet will play memories as to why the chosen champions were worthy," Dumbledore said, struggling to remain calm.
