Hey guysss! Here's another boot camp challenge! :D. By now everyone should know how it works. Right? Hahaha.

Well this one is about YOUR HeadCanon! So basically anything goes, just try not to get /too/ AU :). Just like all of it's sisters, there's 50 prompts and you have to write 50 different stories using a prompt per story. Simple, Right?

Rules: (Copied from Gamma's OTP BC)

Each prompt is to be used for it's own story (Or chapter)

The stories can be as short as 100 words or as long as 100 000 000... or longer!

You can post drabbles/one-shots as a collection if you wish

If one of them inspires you for a multi-chapter, and the rest just inspire one shots or parts of a collection, then by all means write a multi-chapter and 49 one-shots or a 49-drabble collection! This is all about inspiration.

As such, any pairing is acceptable. Het, slash, femmeslash, incest, cousincest, cross-gen, crack, bestiality - whatever floats your proverbial boat.

People who do the challenge more than once get cookies and a temple built in their honour.

Double/triple/however many claims are definitelydefinitelydefinite ly allowed. Again, all about inspiration.

Take the prompts in any way you wish! Use the actual word in a throwaway line, use the idea as a theme, use an alternative interpretation of the word... be creative!

Combine with other challenges as much as you please!

Note: The first person to get their 50 stories done will get 25 reviews of any Boot Camp story reviewed, keep in mind that I am reviewing every story of my challenges anyway, though.

I just wanted to let you know that currently this topic is in violation of forum rules:

7. When making a challenge, label it as a challenge in the topic title. When making a competition, label it as a competition in the topic title. If something is both, use challenge/competition. This makes things neat and simple. The difference between the two is that competitions always have prizes and judges, whereas challenges do not.

Please could you label this appropriately next time you're here, and, if you have any others that violate the rules, go back and re-label those too? It's just a simple matter of editing your first post.

Also, if you haven't read the rules, you can find them clearly marked in one of the pinned threads, HPFC POST-IT-NOTES. Please do read them before posting anything else if you haven't.

Schermionie, on behalf of the HPFC Mods.

Holly The Sparkling Unicorn
Head canon is whats cannon in your head. Like, an example of mine is Harry was abused by the dursleys and taken in by snape. And Charlie married a girl named Lyra black an had two kids. And Draco had 3 kids, not one. Get it?

8/13/2012 #28

Sorry for the double post here but I have a question about the prompts.

What does Winnow mean?

8/13/2012 #29
Holly The Sparkling Unicorn

Kate: you've been added

Fan: I read and reviewed your story. I'm pretty sure, anyway. And winnow means removing (people or things) from a group until the best are left.
