“What Is History But a Fable Agreed Upon?”

C H A L L E N G E
We all had that favorite story that our parents told us over and over and over until they thought they might fall over and die if they told it again. Luna truly enjoyed her father's tales of nargles time and time again. Draco loved to listen to his father's stories about being cunning and resourceful in life. Arthur managed to put even his most rebellious children to sleep by enchanting them with a magical story of adventure and the importance of being brave and kind.

Much like the tales from Beedle the Bard, each of these fathers' stories focused on some sort of life lesson. Choose a father from the list below and come up with a tale that he could tell his children/child to teach them something.

James Potter - Harry
Harry Potter - James, Albus, or Lily
Arthur Weasley - Bill, Charlie, Percy, Fred, George, Ron, or Ginny
Lucius Malfoy - Draco
Rolf Scamander - Lorcan or Lysander
Remus Lupin - Teddy Lupin
Ron Weasley - Hugo or Rose


R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.
+ Entries have to be between 500 and 1000 words.
+ Write a fable that the father you chose could tell his child/children.
+ The story must illustrate one moral.
+ Magic or a magical beast must play a role in your story.

Question: Can the fable be based off of an already existing story?

Question:

Can we have a dialogue going on between father/son/daughter during the story (and word count limits)? or we should just narrate the story itself?

Thanks!

As long as your entry includes the fable and is within the word limit, this is up to you ^^

Um, are we allowed to include a historical character in our Fable. Like Merlin?

1. If we want to include italic in our entry, do we use <i> or [i]?
2. Can we state the moral in the story if we’re paranoid it is not obvious? xD
3. Do we need to have a " at the start of the fable and " at the end to show that the father is talking {aka telling} to the son?

3rd Place: 25,000 galleons + 1,000 House Points - enyang (Entrant 4 )

Congratulations to the winners! All House points, items, and galleons will be sent to you directly, so there is no need to post tradelinks.
