- The Ten, Twenty, Thirty Chapter Challenge -

By AlwaysPadfoot

How it works?

For all challenges I will choose your chapter titles.

  • The Imperio Challenge - I have the control. I choose your pairing, I choose how many chapters you do and I name your chapters.
  • The Crucio Challenge - I have some control - lets be honest Crucio is a moment of madness. You chose either your 10, 20, 30 chapters OR your pairing and I name your chapters.
  • The Killing Curse Challenge - I have very little control, once I've blasted you with a AK, there's not much I can do after that. You pick your pairing, you pick either ten, twenty or thirty chapters and I name your chapters.

When you reply to this thread fill in the following options: (Only fill in the first question if you've chosen your pairing!)

  • Which Challenge (Which Unforgivable):
  • Which Era's you'd prefer (Founders/Marauders/Next-Gen/etc):
  • Willing to do OC's (Does not necessarily mean you'll get one):
  • Het/Slash/FemmeSlash/Incest (Tell me what you're NOT cool with):
  • Anything Else?:

You may do a story or series of one shots [500words plus] centred around your pairing whether it be Romantic / Frienemies / Friendship / Family / Enemies / etc. Anything you decide to write (K-M) is fair game: Slash/Femmeslash/BDSM/Insest/etc. Whatever just make sure it is rated appropriately. You may combine challenges as long as you credit the Challenge :)

Yeah so if you have any questions just ask and I'll try R&R everything but bear with me.

8/31/2012 #12
no cure for crazy
  • Which Challenge (Which Unforgivable): Imperio
  • Which Era's you'd prefer (Founders/Marauders/Next-Gen/etc): I'm find with Trio or Next-Gen :)
  • Willing to do OC's (Does not necessarily mean you'll get one): I'm honestly not that great with OC's, so if I didn't get one, that would be better.
  • Het/Slash/FemmeSlash/Incest (Tell me what you're NOT cool with): slash/femslash, nothing against it, I just don't write it. I'm also not cool with writing incest of any kind.
  • Anything Else?: I don't think I could do Dramione or Harmione or any cross-gen.

Hope I'm not being a pain...

8/31/2012 #13
Cheeky Slytherin Lass
I can't start new lines on mobile, so please forgive the clutter. I'm going to try the Imperio level. I prefer Marauders and Trio era. I don't write OCs. I'm fine with everything as far as pairings go. I can't/won't write Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Draco, Severus, Wormtail. I can only pair Luna with Dean or Cho. I can only pair Cho with Luna. I think that's it. Sorry if I'm too picky.
8/31/2012 #14
  • Which Challenge (Which Unforgivable): Imperio
  • Which Era's you'd prefer (Founders/Marauders/Next-Gen/etc): any except Founder's
  • Willing to do OC's (Does not necessarily mean you'll get one): No
  • Het/Slash/FemmeSlash/Incest (Tell me what you're NOT cool with): incest
  • Anything Else?: I can't write Harry, Ron, or Hermione to save my life, and I'd really like a cross gen pairing if at all possible...
