|New Year, New Challenges!|
|Happy New Year, MNFF! With a new year comes new challenges. Check them out. |
Where? The Great Hall. Click to enter.
When? Until Feb 12.
This month, all you Wrocking Wordsmiths out there, your challenge is to take a song from any genre of rock (from light rock to scream-o death metal, and everything in between) and give it a good Potter treatment. Re-write the song (at least 50% of the words) to make it a song that might make it on the Wizard Wireless Network’s rock station.
The rules are simple:
+Pick a song that meets the criteria. If you’re not sure, ask one of us, but the spectrum is so broad that it is probably okay.
+If someone else used the same song as you, it’s fine as long as your titles/subjects aren’t the same. Otherwise, bagsy goes to whoever got there first.
+Rewrite it to make it fit into the magical universe, OR you can rewrite the song to be ABOUT the magical universe.
+Submit the entry ONLY in this thread.
+Use the form provided.
At the end of this activity, all these entries will be combined into one fantastic album on the archives. Each song (entry) will have its own track (chapter) and will be credited to the artist (author) who wrote it. Past editions of similar projects have garnered thousands upon thousands of reads and are featured on the archives for three weeks, as well, so if you’re looking forward to a bit of MNFF stardom, this is your chance.
All entries are due in this thread by no later than February 12th (some leniency for time zones will be allowed).
To find out more about this challenge and post your entry, click here. You must be a member of our beta boards to enter.
Where? The Three Broomsticks. Click to enter.
When? Now until January 31st
For this month's challenge, we want you to take a canon character and give them another side, a secret, no less. Not just any secret, this has to be something to do with their heritage - or their blood. Whether they've known all the time or are just discovering the secret is up to you, but it's how they handle the knowledge that's going to make your drabble compelling.
You have free rein with the secret, so why not attempt something fantastical? In the past we've had Narcissa as a part Veela and Abraxas as a Vampire, so perhaps follow those lines rather than Zabini discovering his mum kills her old husbands, or Dean finding his dad was a wizard.
Word Count. Between 400-800 words.
All drabbles must conform to MNFF guidelines.
Use of a beta is encouraged.
Closing date: 31st January 10 PM (GMT)
Where? Fiction Junction (click to enter) and the archives
When? Until April 20th
Your hard-working moderator (ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor) scoured the entire archive, category by category, for any story that met the requirements I set. The requirements are as follows:
+Stories validated or updated between December 1, 2012 and November 30, 2013.
Of these stories, one-shots or single-chaptered incomplete fics with two or fewer reviews, and
Chaptered stories with an average of one review or fewer per chapter.
This is how the activity works: a maximum of eight points will be available for EVERY story listed. You all review the stories listed, and points will be given based on the quality of your review. This is a great opportunity for members to show a bit of house pride and put up some points. Not only that, it gives the authors of these neglected stories the lovely, warm feeling of receiving reviews.
As mentioned, points will be awarded on the quality of the review. A few lines that say what the reader liked about the story will earn one point, whereas a review with detailed, in-depth analysis and constructive criticism will earn up to four points.
There is no limit to the number of reviews you can submit, nor a limit to the number of points you can receive; it is all determined by your participation level.
To enter you must be a member of the beta boards.
Click here to read more about the challenge and submit your reviews!
Where? Fiction Junction. Click to enter.
You must be a member of the beta boards to earn points for your recommendations but anyone is welcome.

|MNFF turns Nine!|
|Today, November 14th, MuggleNet FanFiction celebrates its ninth birthday! We've had nine amazing years of amazing writing and we're so happy to see so many people still enjoying the brilliant work of almost 4000 authors right here on our site!|
As we enter year ten, the world of Potter promises to give us new inspiration, new characters and new experiences. JK Rowling is penning the Fantastic Beasts movie and continues to bring us new information via Pottermore. We promise to stay right here giving you the chance to explore these new realms and the hundreds of alternate worlds created by our authors.
Keep an eye out for our celebrations all year as we lead up to our celebration of a decade in fandom!
From all the staff, thank you!

|The Great MNFF Tumblr Challenge!|
As the MuggleNet Fanfiction presence on Social Media grows, so does our need for fun and interesting content! Our Tumblr page recently passed another follower milestone, and to celebrate we will be running a competition to produce new content that will encourage more Tumblr users to check out all the wonderful fanfiction that our site has to offer.
If you are a Tumblr user already, you will be familiar with all the beautiful graphics and art that is produced over there. Your challenge is simple: create content based on a particular fic. We’ve already had several users create graphics and art for various fics so check out these examples:
A Palisade of Persuasion
Going Against Salazar’s Grain
But don’t feel the need to stop at gif sets and edits. Any kind of art or creative content will be welcome. If you like making fanvideos then pick a fic and bring it to life! If you want to cosplay a scene from a fic and send in the photos then that’s great too! Be creative and, most of all, have fun.
The only stipulation is that your creations are based on a fic from MuggleNet Fanfiction and that somewhere in your Tumblr post you credit the fic and link back. Having an excerpt from the fic will help, too, but it’s not necessary. If you click on the examples above, you’ll see what we mean.
Anyone as long as you are following at least one of MuggleNet’s or MuggleNet Fanfiction’s social media sites. This could be tumblr, facebook, twitter, instagram, you name it! If you aren’t following us on social media, you must be a member of MuggleNet Fanfiction itself.
Well, apart from creating content for our site, there will be a few perks for taking part.
An overall winner will be chosen by a team of MuggleNet Fanfiction moderators. The winner will be featured on the main MuggleNet site as well as our various social media sites, and receive an official WB Deathly Hallows Key Ring!
Any exceptional creations will be featured on the main MuggleNet site as well as our various social media sites.
For MNFF Beta Board users only: All entries will receive 5 participation points with an extra 2 points for each additional piece of content. Please keep track of what you have entered by linking to them in this post using the following form.
Link to entry: (Please link to each entry you submit. This could be the direct link to the MNFF tumblr or your personal tumblr blog. If you have explicit or profane content on your personal tumblr blog that is not family friendly then please link to the MNFF tumblr instead. This means you might have to wait until it is reblogged by MNFF.)
How to Submit
1. If you have a Tumblr account and wish to post your creations yourself, then that is fine. Just be sure to tag your post with ‘mugglenet’ and ‘mugglenet fanfiction’.
Then submit a link to your post on the MuggleNet FanFiction Tumblr Submissions page here.
2. If you do not wish to post your creation to your personal tumblr, then submit your post on the MuggleNet Fanfiction Tumblr submissions page here.
3. If you do not have a Tumblr account, then please email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Tumblr Challenge Submission’. Please include whatever name you want us to credit you with.
+You must be a member of MuggleNet Fanfiction OR following one of the Mugglenet or MuggleNet Fanfiction social media sites.
+You must base your creations on a fanfiction story that is posted on MuggleNet Fanfiction.
+You must credit and link to said fanfiction.
+No sexually explicit or violent imagery, please!
+If you are posting your creation yourself, tag your submissions with ‘mugglenet’ and ‘mugglenet fanfiction’.
This challenge will run from now until December 7th, 11:59pm GMT.
