Hello! When you say the drabble must be in British English, do you mean spellings as well? Or just... not offensive to British ears? (i.e. trunk/boot, elevator/lift)
I'd really like to see you practice your British spelling! It is mainly the 'z's in words like "realised" and the 'u's in words like "Colour"
I realise that is is mean to concentrate on this every week, but seen as this is a pretty open prompt I'd really like to see you all making a conscious effort to stick to British
That tooOr just... not offensive to British ears? (i.e. trunk/boot, elevator/lift)
Thanks for the question, Lori. I'll go and make it a bit clearer in the thread

Would Hermione's journey to retrieve her parents be considered canon? I know I have misinterpreted things like this in the past and want to make sure. We know she planned to go back for them, and we know she survived, so... canon?

Yes, Lori. JK Rowling has stated in an interview that Hermione found her parents and restored their memories, so that's canon enough for me.
I'm glad you girls are leaving the "roads" comp up until Sept 1. My question is: is that the normal 10pm gmt deadline on the 1st, or midnight tonight?
*may turn into a pumpkin*
Also, I just happened to notice that the instructions said "setting off on a journey" ... does this mean it has to take place at the beginning of the journey, or can it be at any point? If the answer is the beginning only, no need to address my first question, as mine will not qualify.
It can be any part of the journey as long as it's not after the journey has ended. Hope that makes sense.
Regarding the time, as the boards are snafu'd at the moment with the timing, we'll leave the comp open for the rest of today and I'll close at 10pm GMT.
