|The Doomed Ship Valentine Ficathon|
Not all ships were created equal. Some are just more doomed than others. We’re going to celebrate that.
In this activity you can give and fill prompts for various doomed ships. Rather than a challenge, it’s more of a celebration for those ships we have come to mourn.
First of all, what is a doomed ship?
Not all ships are doomed. A doomed ship can be one or more of the following:
1. One or both members of your ship died, disappeared, or left e.g. Remus/Tonks, James/Lily
2. One or both members of your ship were in another relationship at the end of the book or in post-book canon according to JKR e.g. Draco/Pansy, Dean/Luna, Katie/Angelina
3. The relationship is never resolved in canon e.g. Fred/Angelina, Albus/Gellert
4. Canon hates your ship (and wants it to die a death full of torture and/or emotional suffering) e.g. Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Tom/Minerva
There may be some crossover in the above categories e.g. Fred/Angelina is doomed because a) Fred dies, b) Angelina marries George according to post-book canon and c) their relationship was never resolved in canon. Basically, they’re really, really doomed.
So how is this going to work?
Go to this thread to read the prompts and post your own. If you claim a prompt and write a fic, you can post the link to your fic in the comments below or in the Great Hall here.

|The Carol Challenge!|
First Place: Good King Ragnuk by Oregonian
Christmas is only a couple of weeks away and we are bringing the festive cheer to MNFF!
This month we are taking some classic (and modern) Christmas songs and giving them a Harry Potter twist. Below is a list of titles and you can choose one (or more) to base your poem on. We have a mix of popular Christmas carols, traditional hymns and more alternative songs. So look through them, pick one that tickles your fancy and go for it! You can go with the original music or just write a completely new poem to fit the title. The choice is yours. I have provided the original carol/song title in brackets. I'm sure there is something to suit everyone, and why not go wild and google some of the titles you're unfamiliar with?
Please do not use more than 4 consecutive words from the original song.
This challenge is open until January 5th, 11:59pm GMT. For more information click here.
Please post a link to your entry in the comments below or the challenge thread in the Great Hall on the Beta Boards. Use the form below:
