    Guess the Connection - Points!

    Guess the Connection!



    Based on a game my local radio station plays, for this challenge I will provide three fics and you must... guess the connection between them! Sometimes it will have to do with content within the actual fic or the summary, sometimes it may involve the actual author, and sometimes it might be even sneakier than that! For example, all three fics might mention the same minor character like Bathilda Bagshot or the authors may have left exactly 107 reviews.

    Every day I will edit three new fics into this post. They will last for at least 24 hours until I edit in the next round. Once new fics are edited in, you may no longer guess the connection for a previous round.

    You are to figure out the connection and then post in this thread with your guess.

    I will always be looking for one particular connection, but there may be more. If anyone guesses another interesting connection then they will get bonus points.

    Fics will always be one-shots.

    I have prepared 20 rounds.

    There will be 2 points for participation, and 5 points for the correct guess. Bonus points are as follows:

    +For an interesting connection I hadn't thought of: 5 points total including participation points (I reserve the right to determine what is and isn't interesting enough for bonus points)
    +For completing every round: 20 points on top of participation points
    +For completing at least ten rounds: 10 points on top of participation points

    Whoever posts the correct guess first wins the round. If you think someone has already posted the correct guess then have a go anyway. You will get participation points and you may even get those coveted bonus points!

    Any questions can go in the Ask a Chaperone thread. Please leave this thread open for guesses only.

    For the first round, I’ll start you off with something easy!

    I'm going to jump in here and say

    1) 'Professor McGonagall'

    She's the main character in Thank you for your Time, Professor.
    She appears in Glass Ginny when they're back at school after Luna has been taken.
    Lavender has an interview with her in Two to Tango

    2) All have an odd number of words

    3) All have an even number of reviews (at the moment)

    4) All use the word 'Mum' (Phyllida's mum, Lavender's Mum, Ginny's Mum)

    1) McGonagall's concern for her students - she's trying to help the Marauders, asks Ginny and Neville if they're okay, and has Lavender stay after class.

    2) War

    3) Gryffindor-centric

    4) Friends trying to console the main characters? In It Takes Two to Tango and Glass Ginny it's Neville, in Thank you for your time, Professor, Sirius comes along to console Remus.

    That's all I got.

    Here are some things that Carole and Minna haven't mentioned:

    1. All three authors were QSQ nominees this summer.

    2. All three stories were nominated for QSQ awards in their respective years (and two won).

    And the answer for round one is...

    They are all set at Hogwarts!

    No one guessed correctly but all your alternatives were right, too. Great start. Here's hoping more of you will dare to enter round two. It's up now and will close in 24 hours.

    In addition to what's been said:

    They're all about being at war.

    Um, in each of them the characters at least half-expect to die at some point (Harry's 'last winter', Lily wondering if the world stops spinning when saints die, 'If it be our last, then we shall fight').

    1) The titles are all song lyrics

    Glass Over Flame - Hopeless wanderer - Mumford and Sons
    Cette Nuit - Cette Nuit - Allianstars
    When Saints Die, the world stops spinning - The World Stops spinning - Kyler England.

    2) They're set, for the most part, at evening/night.

    3) There's a sense of doomed relationships in all three.

    Glass over Flame - harry and Hermione not together
    Cette Nuit - Remus and Tonks dying
    When Saints die - Lily and james dying, but also the ambiguity of her relationship with the other Marauders (especially Sirius)

    4) They all die (Well, not Hermione, and Harry survived, but he did essentially die)

    And the answer for round two is...

    All the authors are named after magical creatures!

    We have the Antipodean Opaleye, the Clabbert, and the Phoenix! Better get out those copies of Fantastic Beasts and study up, right? Sadly, we have no winners this time but keep the great guesses coming! Maybe this next round will be more fruitful?
