This one's kind of like a oneshot with five parts (or a five chaptered story, but they're usually written as a oneshot). Basically, you write five things that did or didn't happen to a character, such as five times Jack Sparrow fell in love with Elizabeth Swann or five times Neville Longbottom didn't fall off his broom. :D It came around because I've seen so many of these lately, and I thought you guys could come up with some good ones.

You only need to claim the character and what their five things are. There's no due date, and you can claim the same character but not the same story arc...

I've also got some examples somewhere; they're all written in different styles, but they're worth it. These are what inspired this, and also because for some weird reason I don't think I explained it all very well.

je regrette rien

Seven times Peter Pettigrew's conscience caught up with him.

Five Times

Five times Andromeda said goodbye, in 500 words

Charity and Red Wine

Narcissa knows exactly what death tastes like. [Narcissa kills five people. One shot. Dark.]

Five conversations at a bar. Five women who didn't take the bar maid's advice. Five lives Rosmerta never changed.

Claims

Cuba - Five times Dean Thomas never fell in love

This sounds really interesting...but I already had an idea for seven or ten things for Draco. I'm passing on this challenge, but good luck to anyone who's particiapting!

Is there a time limit on this? If not, I have the germ of an idea for a Percy fic...

writingxonxwalls

I'll do it. (:

Why not add another challenge to the list of things I have todo. Haha, well I claim

Five times Draco should've controlled his temper.

I think that's okay... Now question. If I do that, would my story be Draco controlling his temper, right? Not the other way around... or have I got this confused?

Can I claim Five Times in which Neville should have remembered? Thanks.

I LOVE this challenge!

Can I claim Five times Hannah didn't want to be a Hufflepuff

That was odd...random...I opened the dictionary to H...

Anyway. Looking forward to writing this!!

Claims

Cuba - Five people Dean Thomas never fell in love with

Pinky - Five times Neville Longbottom should have remembered

Lola - Five times Hannah Abbott didn't want to be a Hufflepuff

writingxonxwalls Five times Draco should've controlled his temper.

The basic idea is to write five scenes in which Draco should have controlled his temper but he didn't, but feel free to put any spin on it you like.

Katy, there's no due date.

Gotcha. Sounds good. Thanks!

Bad Mum

In that case, I'm claiming:

Five times Percy Weasley could have gone home and didn't

(I may reword that...)

6/11/2008 #9
Elledreamer

Haha, just had such a great idea... since it's only a oneshot them I'm going to do it...

Can I claim:

Five brothers Ron Weasley wished he didn't have

(It's still going to be a 'five times' thing, I just liked the phrasing)

Question: Does it necessarily just have to be in five parts or can I tag a bit onto the end...? Actually... I was considering doing a two-shot and making another in relation to this... is that OK?

6/11/2008 #10
Bad Mum

Elle, I am dying to read that.

(Dn 't know if it's allowed or not, but mine;s having a bit tacked on the end too!)

6/11/2008 #11
sinfulgirl

Is there a due date?? If not I may have an idea about Ginny... Oops, I shouldn't claim anything! I don't think I can finish it any time soon....

Bad Mum

No due date - that was my worry too!

Hmmm..this sounds interesting. Might have a plot bunny rolling around up there. Let me think about this....

6/11/2008 #14
Elledreamer

Yeah I think I'm going to need to tag a bit on the end to make it work, but I suppose as long as the key element of the story is 'Five Things', or something similar, it doesn't matter too much.

6/11/2008 #15
hondagirl

Okay, I think the plot bunny has been found......

Five instances when the dictionary failed Rose Weasley
