The Birthday BiWeekly Epistolary Challenge
Ah, September, scene of lovely children rushing to Platform nine-and-three-quarters, tripping over owls in cages in their haste to get onto the train. What more fitting subject could there be for a September Challenge?
Well, actually there's this one. Every year a certain birthday gets lost in the excitement of the new year at Hogwarts. I'm talking about Hermione. Dagnabbit, we NEVER see her birthday celebrated in the books. We see Harry's frequently, and Ron's (mind you he's whacked out on Love Potion, but still ...) so let us all get our typing fingers flexed and write some birthday love for Hermione.
This should be in the form of a letter (or several), with someone sending Hermione birthday wishes. It can be anyone, and I mean anyone. Don't let the fact of Voldemort's death put you off his declaration beyond the grave that he loves her. Obviously, your writer might have other things he/she wishes to say, so don't restrict it to 'Happy Birthday, Mione!' because that would be boring.
This competition will close on September 24th at 10pm BST.
Five points will be awarded for participation, and points will be awarded in the usual manner for first, second and third place, providing that there are enough entries, you have met the MNFF guidelines, and they are of sufficient quality.
All drabbles should be between 250-500 words.
