    Question Corner #6 - Ask the Barmaids

    Hello there, TTB drabblers! Welcome to:

    Question Corner #6 - Ask the Barmaids!


    As usual this is the place to ask questions about drabbles, challenges, round robins, etc.
    Please make sure you ask all your questions here and not in the thread of the challenge, as they will be deleted.

    Quick reminders:

    1. A drabble is by definition 100 words; however, here at the Three Broomsticks, your barmaids mudbloodproud, Russia Snow and Equinox Chick, believe in freedom of expression. Hence, all drabbles must be between 100 - 500 words. No more. No less.

    2. Please keep material at a PG-13 or below rating for your drabbles/entries. There's no pop-up warnings in the forums and they are viewable by anyone. Anything posted here must take that into account. Any violations will result in loss of points, or other consequences.

    3. Lastly, please check over your drabbles for errors before posting and make sure to space the paragraphs properly so it's easy to read. Anything posted in the Three Broomsticks is subject to the MNFF submission guidelines.


    There is a link to the previous question thread HERE if you want to take a look.

    Thanks! You guys are awesome, keep drabbling!

    ~Your Barmaids - Russia, Carole and Terri.

    Am I the first to ask a question in the new thread? Awesome. (Sorry, Carole.)

    Okay, so for the Delacour Drabble, is there a time deadline, or is it just anytime tomorrow (Aug 2)? I'm hoping to squeeze one in at the very last second... just want to make sure I know when that second is. Thanks!

    It's usually 10pm GMT, because Russia and I are on UK time.

    That's 5 hours ahead of NY time - if that helps.

    Are we allowed to use a beta for the August Monthly, since it's meant to be anonymous? Just wondering...

    Sorry, if I'm overstepping barmaids...

    But I think the answer would be yes. The most recent drabble has a beta acknowledgement. If you don't want people to know what you wrote, I'd recommend using a beta who isn't from these boards or PMing a beta with your request... or writing on their thread that you have a drabble and PMing them the details.

    Oh and I have a couple questions too.

    For the Shared Dorm cliche, does it have to be written from the perspective of either the Head Boy or Girl? And can we use AUs or no?

    Edit: Yes, AU. I had an amusing idea... we'll see if it works.

    Minna - good question.

    I was going to say No because we meant to put that in the challenge, but someone has already used a beta, so you may use a beta.

    For the Shared Dorm cliche, does it have to be written from the perspective of either the Head Boy or Girl? And can we use AUs or no?
    Do you mean AUs or OCs? If you want to write an Alternate Universe then, yes, that's fine. If you want to use an OC then that's okay as well.

    For the June Monthly, does the drabble have to feature a party scene, or was that paragraph just preamble?
    It wasn't just the preamble. There has to be some sort of celebration/commemoration of the event. Whether it's a party, a meal for two, or a family gathering - that's up to you.

    Okay, you've got me all confused now. A racket can either be the sports equipment or a loud noise, but a racquet can only be the the sports equipment, right?

    As you have said racket can mean a loud noise, or a piece of sporting equipment.

    Racquet can only be the sports equipment.

    Mwahahahahahahhaa

    For the Day 8 Tennis Anyone? challenge, can we use singulars? So, single and double instead of the plurals?

    Just wanted to make sure! Thanks!
