We all know how the story goes: Ginny and Harry end up together, as do Hermione and Ron, Bill and Fleur, and so many other iconic pairs. But what if this wasn't the case? What if something had happened, either at Hogwarts or in the future, that disrupted the fates of the couples we hold most dear in the Harry Potter universe? What if fate as we know it decided that another couple was meant to be? In this month's Freestyle, you get to play matchmaker and rearrange the romantic destinies of some of our most beloved Harry Potter characters!

Task
Your task is to create a valentine for a non-canon couple in the Harry Potter series. You can use any two characters you would like, and they may be from any canon generation or time period that you wish. However, the valentine cannot be for a couple that has already been established in the series. For example, you cannot create a valentine for Harry sent by Ginny. Likewise, you wouldn't be able to create one for Dean Thomas from Ginny. While you're free to choose whatever characters you'd like, it should be clear from your submission who is sending the valentine, as well as who is intended to receive it. You must also include a year on the valentine to help establish the time period in which it is being sent.

You may use any medium to complete this task, whether it be by hand or via a digital graphics program. Alternatively, you may instead create a written valentine. Should you choose the writing option, your valentine must be between 50 and 200 words (inclusive). Please note: If you choose to hand-make your valentine, you may not use a pre-existing card. It must be entirely your creation.

For a bonus ticket to the raffle, you may also write a short story describing the character giving the valentine to someone else. Your short story must be between 100 and 500 words (inclusive). Please note that this task is optional.


Rules
1. All HEX, RPC, and RPC Lounge rules apply. All work must be your own.
2. You may choose to create your valentine graphically or instead write out a valentine. Should you choose the writing option, your entry must be between 50 and 200 words (inclusive). If you choose to hand-make your valentine, you may not use a pre-existing card. The valentine must be entirely your creation.
3. You must include a year somewhere on your valentine to help establish the time period in which it is being sent.
4. Only non-canon couples will be allowed. Should you have questions about what would be considered non-canon, you are welcome to ask in this thread or owl KatieNumbers.
5. Please send in only one entry for this activity. If you send in more than one, only your first entry will be counted.
6. You may earn a maximum of two tickets in this contest: one from the valentine and one from the optional short story.
7. Please send your entries to the RPC Mods account.
8. If you have any questions, you are more than welcome to ask in this thread or owl KatieNumbers.
9. This contest will end on February 28th at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

So by non-canon couple, I take it to mean that we choose two canon characters that were never a romantic item in the books (or the films? because the films had Neville "mad for" Luna - not in the books)? Please tag me and thanks in advance!

So long as it is completed individually, this is fine.

It would be for both the movies and books. However, as long as two characters were never stated as being a couple, even if one was stated to have feelings for another as in the example you provided, you are welcome to use them.

It would be the year the valentine was sent in. If you would like to put what year in school they are in as a bonus you are welcome to do that, however, the year it was sent needs to be included so we can get an understanding of the time frame it was in.

You can make it as a video with text if you'd like! That would fall under any digital medium

Just making sure, but ships that were heavily implied but not explicitly stated at all as canon counts for this, right? Because the certain ship I have in mind points directly to it being canon but all the evidence is implication, not actual canon that said "Character A and B were dating," or whatever.

That's correct! You can use them as long as they were not explicitly stated as dating.

Does this mean we can use photo manipulation? If yes, should we include sources?

We will consider Cursed Child canon for this contest, however, you cannot use pairings that have already been established.

When you say inclusive what does that mean?
And when we need a year does it have to say 1997 for example or can it say something along the lines of "I've known you for three years." implying them being in third year?
