The Fantastic Beasts Challenge
by the opaleye @ 04/28/16 4:58
The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them trailer has sent the fandom abuzz, so let's write some fic! Take any of the trailers, teasers, posters or clips that have been released so far and use them to inspire a fic or poem. It's that simple. I've provided some prompts below but you don't need to use them if you think of something else which tickles your fancy.
It could be a specific scene, line or shot from the trailer, or it could just feature a fantastical beast even if it’s not shown in the trailer at all. You could write something about Newt himself, one of the new characters introduced, or Newt's son Rolf and daughter-in-law Luna! Really, the choice is yours.
Let’s just celebrate one of the many exciting things happening in our fandom right now.
The challenge will be open until May 31st, 11:59pm GMT.
Please post a link to your submissions in the comments below, or post in the challenge thread on our beta boards.
Prompt 1: May 2nd, 1998
Many creatures fought and died in the Battle of Hogwarts, either for or against our heroes. Make one of them the focus of your fic.
Prompt 2: Riddle Me This
"Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense."
On October 6th 2014, JKR posted the above cryptic message on Twitter. Unscramble that and you get, "Newt Scamander only meant to stay in New York for a few hours." Use this as the first line of your fic and take it from there.
Prompt 3: Niffler
Personally, I think the trailer's stand-out star is that adorable Niffler. That's it. That's the prompt: a Niffler.
