Does the spell need to be canon? Or can we create a new hex/spell for this?

A black quill with the spell Suffo on it. Suffo makes the object be the opposite side of it. The incantation is “Suffo *object name*” The quill’s name is Art Mayhem. Whenever someone writes a word on it, it draws a picture of the opposite a few seconds later. This is great for pranking your rival or get back at someone without hurting them.

Thank you!


This was my entry:

Dear Mr Scrivenshaft

I heard that you were looking for ideas for a new joke quill. Well I think I have got just the thing. The Shrinking Quill! Now, I know what you are thinking, it's a quill that shrinks, right? Wrong! This quill is a lot sneakier than that. The Shrinking Quill will shrink your writing!

The Shrinking Quill makes a great joke item, but can also be useful if you know how to use it properly, giving it a dual purpose. First let's get down to the main purpose: the prank itself. This is a practical joke for all the Ravenclaws and Hermione Grangers out there, who want to get back at their lazy friends for not doing enough homework. The Shrinking Quill will make them have to do extra. Imagine your professor telling you to write an essay of at least two sheets of parchment, but every time you think you are getting close to finishing, your writing shrinks and you have to try and fill up the parchment again!

This quill will be made from an occamy feather. An occamy is choranaptyxic, meaning it can grow or shrink to fit the available space. We will be able to utilise both of these skills with spells.

The first spell, which the quill will come readily equipped with (and will be the unique selling point) is the Letter Shrinking Charm. The incantation to this spell is Litera Minima, which in latin means 'letter' and 'tiny', respectively.

At first, it will appear like just a normal quill. the writer will start writing and everything will be fine. However, when they reach the end of their sheet of parchment, all the text will shrink by 20%. This means you have to keep writing if you want to meet your homework quota! You can also imagine that if it keeps shrinking every time you reach the end of your parchment, it it won't be long until it is too small to read. There is only one way to solve this problem, and it is up to the prankster's discretion if they decide to reveal it or not. It is quite simple really. Just switch quills before you reach the end of the parchment.

Here is where the practical use of this quill comes into practice. If you have quite big hand writing or do not have much parchment available to you, it would be very helpful to have you writing shrink so that you have more room. Once you have reached the desired sized/ finished your work, you can then switch quills so that it does not shrink any further. It is very space saving.

Now onto the other spell, which utilises growth. This is not technically part of the quill's official features. It is in fact a 'hack', to use a muggle term. Once a customer purchases a quill, they are at liberty to cast Litera Cresco, which is the exact opposite charm and will have the reverse effect on the quill. So if you want to get back at your prankster, you can simply cast this charm on the quill and your text will increase, so you have to write less. Of course, the catch is, that this is a new spell, and you have to know about it and learn the incantation before you can use it! It will also render the original purpose of the quill useless, meaning the customer would have to buy another one. That's always good for business, right?


Thank yo for considering my idea for a new quill. I hope to see it on your shelves one day!

Wow, thanks! Here's my TL: https://www.hexrpg.com/trading?action=show&tradingid=17254261

Congrats to the other winners! Vitallani I really like how you made it into a letter advertising the product! And here's my entry (it was very last minute!):

Quote:
‘Rocket Man’ Joke Quill

The Quill itself is a black Eagle Feather Quill, with nothing particularly noteworthy or unique about it. Just your normal every day Quill. However, when someone tries to write with it, it instantly turns into a rocket and takes flight, flying around the room with small firework-type explosions going off at random intervals. This is due to the complex Transfiguration spell that is put on it that also incorporates a charm that makes the rocket fly around the room and set off colourful explosions at intervals. The spell name is very basic: Quill to Rocket (probably because the spell itself is so complex, the creator couldn't think up a more complex name) and the incantation is Fugeret Erucae, meaning to take flight as a rocket.

Thank you, Stephanie

Your quill sounds like lots of fun. I like how the plain black conceals the colourful eruptions that await inside.

Hey Hey! Not too bad.

For the life of me I can't find my actual entry, but I remember what it had to deal with. Metamorph Magic Markers. Namely; a quill that controlled through thought the color of the ink that was released.
