First Meeting Memories

“I also think we ought to have a name,” [Hermione] said brightly, her hand still in the air. “It would promote a feeling of team spirit and unity, don’t you think?”
“Can we be the Anti-Umbridge League?” said Angelina hopefully.
“Or the Ministry of Magic Are Morons Group?” suggested Fred.
“I was thinking,” said Hermione, frowning at Fred, “more of a name that didn’t tell everyone what we were up to, so we can refer to it safely outside meetings.”
“The Defense Association?” said Cho. “The D.A. for short, so nobody knows what we’re talking about?”
“Yeah, the D.A.’s good,” said Ginny. “Only let’s make it stand for Dumbledore’s Army because that’s the Ministry’s worst fear, isn’t it?”
There was a good deal of appreciative murmuring and laughter at this.
“All in favor of the D.A.?” said Hermione bossily, kneeling up on her cushion to count. “That’s a majority- motion passed!”
She pinned the piece of paper with all of their names on it on the wall and wrong DUMBLEDORE’S ARMY across the top in large letters.

Does it need to be a bulleted sort of thing or do we write a story? Does it matter?
And this isn’t strict to Hex only, right?

@MissHavok since you are supposed to write about the first meeting, you may want to make it more of a story. Really, however you think you can best fulfill the requirements will be okay!

And no, the club/activity can be anything (if that’s what’s you meant in the second question?)

Do the name of the club and purpose should be included in our writings?

Or it is totally separated ?

Since we’re writing the first club meeting in more of a story style, are we allowed to use canon characters? Also, could this be set after Dumbledore’s time or, because of the prompt, does it have to be while he’s still around?

Does this club need to be started by an OC or can canon characters create a club? Also, should it be implied that the club continues on from there or could it be a disastrous attempt?

@SongbirdsCall

You/your OC should be creating the club, as per the prompt. There's no requirement for how the club's first meeting should turn out though

What's the max word count?

Or the reasonable limit of how much you would want to read?

@DarkLordDaniel There is no max word count. I don't want to limit you, but just remember quality over quantity. We won't just make the longest entry the winner because they wrote the mose, obviously

Darn it! I thought writing 5000 words of nonsense would help me win

So I take it that I can't just roll over my keyboard

Interesting prompt, will try it out
