Hmm... challenge? - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Hmm... challenge?
The wet drabble thing isn't doing it for me this week, and Neville's Sort... well, it's moving along, but since this one is actually corresponding with previously seen canon events, it's going more slowly, because there are more restrictions on where I can let it go. Teaser: It opens with Neville acquiring Trevor.

At any rate, I seem to be terminally bored, to the point where I can't really look at the bunnies hopping around in my head, because I've been looking at them for so long. Anyone with a challenge for me? Backstories you want to hear more of? Futurefics? I'm up for bopping around the timeline, but I can't think of where to go. ;p

eep! What a golden opportunity!

Let's see - I'm always keen for anything Remus, but you might like a break from him for a bit. Although... it would be interesting to see how he'd deal with a person like Luna. Did he teach her when she was in second year DADA? Or, how does McGonagall deal with her in Transfiguration?

Yes, I like Luna. :) Everything Luna.

I loved your Sorting of the Marauders' year, and everything you write involving them, so more of that would never go astray - especially in their younger years.

Sirius apoloizing to the Fat Lady.

Oh, that's a good one. I'll try that tomorrow.

The day that Ted and Andromeda find out that they are the proud parents of a metamorphmagus?

I think I'll try and address that at some point in "Shifts."

Anything with more Founders? Hmm. When they get to Helga's?

Hmm. Maybe I'll do a fic from the Tonks Sorting Song sometime. But that will be a long one.

Very OT, but...

...I was offline yesterday (Philippine time) and didn't see that it was your birthday until this morning! Happy birthday, Fern!

Re: Very OT, but...

Thanks! :)

Anything Tonks-related. Maybe one where she decides she wants to be an Auror?

I always appreciate drabbles about Sirius... maybe something about teenage!Sirius and his dear mum?

Gee, what an offer! :) Too bad my kiddos are still asleep - they love your fanfic and I'm sure my son, in particular, would have something to suggest. (He absolutely adores Fred & George.)

I'm not sure any of these will thrill you, but I offer them 'just in case'. :)

Molly finding out about Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes in Diagon Alley? Molly & Arthur in old age, reflecting upon their lives together? Percy's return to the fold? (I suspect he will do so in HPB.) Or perhaps some twin mischief? That's always enjoyable.

Or, what about Tonks' first meeting with whomever screened her for the order? I wonder how that might have worked, as she already knew Remus in your stories, right? Yet Arthur says something along the lines of, "We've managed to convince Tonks here [to join the Order]."

We watched Peter Pan this weekend, and seeing the actor who plays Malfoy, gave me cause to wonder (again) about Tonks meeting up with old Uncle Lucius at the Ministry of Magic sometime during OOtP. I wonder what *he* thinks of his metamorphmagus niece and I wonder how she would handle him.

I've also wondered what might happen to Fawkes in the case of Dumbledore's death -- would he go to Harry?

How about a scene "from beyond the grave" with Sirius? Perhaps in a mirror or a painting?

Well, these probably have already been done to death -- I don't read a lot of fanfic! :)

Feel free to like them or lump them. Again, I want to tell you how much I enjoy your writing.

Those meetings on the other side of the veil with Sirius, Lily, James, Cedric, and the planning and strategizing going on there to aid in the victory in Harry's world would be of interest to me, along with everything everyone else has suggested.
I'd also like to know more about the baby-headed death eater.
And more about what is going on in Peter's head.
And how many ministry people were in Slytherin? With their ambition, it seems a natural. But if we have lots of people with power and influence in the ministry who wear green and silver ties, then shouldn't we hear more about the good slytherins?

How about explaining why a Squib was in the original Order. Arabella was mentioned by name by Dumbledore, implying her involvement preceded watching over Harry.

I would love an Arabella and Sirius scene. Nothing Mrs. Robinson about it, just pureblood Sirius who's never had the opportunity to talk to a Muggle or even a Muggleborn until he went to Hogwarts, meeting a Squib.

Ohhh! I know you've got a lot already, but I would love to read about some interaction between Hermione and McGonagall. Maybe Hermione going to her for advice, or talking to her about one of the "big events" at the end of each book.

can I add more?

I can't help but wonder what McGonagall might be up to (during OOtP) in her muggle dress. Her errand probably isn't on the list of things you're going to cover soon, but what about a drabble or two -- McGonagall taking a muggle cab? Or the underground? McGonagall interacting w/general Muggle society/technology as part of her "cover" or as some sort of "meet" - such as using a cash machine. (Does she get frustrated and end up using her wand? What do the people observing on those little security cameras think?) :) Minerva McGonagall does not suffer fools gladly, it would be interesting to see her in a position where she *had* to put up with some sort of foolishness or haplessness and how she handled it.

You write a wonderful McGonagall, and really capture her spirit, not just the "obvious".

*EEEEK!!!* How could I forget????

Yes, I know, I am very late with my suggestion. I was so occupied with possible Sirius Black challenges, that I totally forgot this huge plot bunny that is hopping in my brain since I've read OotP for the first time. But I am really burning to read about the talk between Remus and the werwolf in St. Mungo's.

What do you think?
