"Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey

C H A L L E N G E
Something that is often seen about a new year is that it is a time of change, and people see it as a chance to start over. Well... not literally, but they will try to improve from the past year, perhaps with a New Year's Resolution or something else. Some people may even see it as a chance to redeem themselves.

So, in the spirit of redemption, along with our forum revamp and the chaos the Weasley twins have caused, we'd like you to put yourself in Fred's or George's shoes and tell us a story about a character that they hated. Is it Mr. Filch? Professor Snape? Maybe Professor Umbridge or another student? Whoever you choose, we have one last twist for you - Magenta wants the twins to begin cleaning up their mess by redeeming this character. Tell us about their good traits or, if you truly can't find any, get creative like Fred and George and make some up. Make us start to love that character!


R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.
+ Your story must not exceed 500 words.
+ It must feature a character from the Harry Potter universe.
+ Your story must be told from either Fred's or George's point of view to Magenta Comstock.

So I am a bit confused. We are writing about a character they hate but also redeeming the character... so is the story also supposed to contain like something that makes the twins hate the character or just their redemption?

I'd like a tag when this is answered please.

Also, my question. Are we meant to be writing this from the twins' POV?
Tag me to this answer too ^^

@snakesnitch43 @AccioNox the aim is to pick someone they hated (e.g. Umbridge) and write a story that shows that character in a good light, or that redeems them. So just their redemption

And no, it doesn't need to be from their POV (:
// apparently it does. My bad

I'm confused.
So, we write a story about one of the HP characters that Fred & George dislike, but bring out all the best things in them?

And in the requirements, it says it has to be from Fred/George's point of view. Does it?

Thanks!

1. Are you aloud to right the story as a letter
2. Also are you aloud to start it as fred or gorge talking and then the event
If not that's sad ☹️ I have a story but only if I'm allowed to do both things above.

Yeah you can write it however you want (first person or third person) meaning you can write it as a letter if you want and it has to be in Fred or George’s perspective anyway because that is a requirement

Does it matter what era they are telling the story from? During school years or post years?

@Salazia nope. It can be any era.

@Dragon-Fire-Fighter she's the MoMA Public Relations Officer (the MoMA character so to speak) and in the HP universe, she's an artist
