    Well, all of the titles contain colors, but I'm sort of afraid that's too obvious to be it...

    All three stories have colors in their titles.

    All three protagonists are male.

    All three protagonists are experiencing a big turning-point in their lives: Harry facing a post-war, post-Voldemort period of his life, the Chinese prince facing the beginning of his boarding school days, and Graham facing a new life free of the trauma of his entrapment in the vanishing cabinet.

    I seem to have a disadvantage in this challenge: when the new stories are posted, it is about 1:00 a.m. here in Oregon, so I must either stay up very late or get up very early to have a chance of being the first to spot the most obvious connection. Perhaps the best strategy is to search for obscure but "interesting" connections that will win bonus points (or else to set my alarm clock for 1:00 a.m.!)

    The titles all have colors - but that's been said thrice over, oops. I will edit once I've actually read through...

    I can't check this as can't link to all the stories (archive on a go slow) but

    1)All three are featured stories?

    2)All mention colours (wow, am I the first ) - but actually all the colours mentioned can be different shaded and aren't fixed.

    Chartreuse can be yellow or green
    Jade can be green or white
    Blue - there are many many different shades on blue (so tenuous- ha ha)


    3)They all sound like names given to an OC girlfriend of Sirius Black

    Chatreuse de Montmerency
    Jade Malfoy
    Blue Knickerbottom

    We have our first winner! But first, the answer for round three is...

    They all have colours in the title!

    Yep, it really was that obvious. Congratulations to 1000timesingoldenink. Round four shall be edited in shortly.

    Uhm

    I think Oregonian is right, but how about ...

    1) All the authors' names are characters in the Harry Potter series.

    All three of the stories are either named after Coldplay songs or from the lyrics to a Coldplay song (Fix You and Yellow are both Coldplay songs, Cartoon Heart is a lyric from the Coldplay song Charlie Brown)

    Just a reminder that repeating a connection that's already been guessed by another person will not earn you points. Even if you think it's the right answer, have a go with something else instead. You never know...

    Ummm… they all have only one chapter?

    They all have no series and are for no challenges

    This is my new hunger games fanfic!
