One of Gato Loco's favorite fanfiction categories is Alternate Universe [it if is well-written, of course] - it's those 'what if' moments that make us obsess over non-canon ships, or minor ships; or it makes us squee over what could have been or wasn't. But more importantly, it keeps fanfiction alive and well.

In the Time Turner challenge, you'll be asked to write a very different reality than the one JKR gave us in the Potterverse. They'll be very general prompts and rarely will they be character specific.

Prompt:Take your favorite character and sort him/her into a different house than the one he/she was in the HP books.
Your drabble doesn't have to focus on the sorting hat or the actual sorting. It could take place in the future, or be a "missing moment" in time.

The following form must be used when submitting your drabble responses to this post -
Word Count:
Winners will be awarded 15, 10, and 5 points respectively.

All drabbles must be less than 500 words; All standard grammar rules, and MNFF submissions guidelines apply.

The challenge will be up for a week, and be closed exactly a week later (January 9th).

MithrilQuill and I will be judging them and posting results a couple of days later.

All questions should be referred to the Question Corner - Do not post questions here. Only drabbles!

Other than that...have fun!
