"Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world."
Professor McGonagall

C H A L L E N G E
Whether in a book, TV show, or a film, we all have our favourite couple that we want to get together. We make the most of their every moment together, and we cry over their fights, break-ups, or deaths if we happen to be really unlucky. We may have to wait minutes, weeks, or even years to see them become a couple, or they may never get together at all.

This month, we want you to write an extract of a storyline about one of your favourite couples - or a couple you hate if that makes you feel better! But there is a catch - the couple cannot be canon. We want to experience a new scenario, new emotions, something different. Plus, this way, you get to live out your fantasies for that couple you were rooting for that may have never materialized.



R E Q U I R E M E N T S
+ This is a prose prompt.
+ Your extract must not exceed 500 words.
+ It must be about a couple that is not canon, i.e. a couple that did not get together.

Does the pair have to be OC characters, or can they come from a canon universe even if the ship isn't canon? Sorry if the question doesn't make sense.

@LUNAtic12 I'm a little confused by the question, but I'll answer it the best I can I'm going for they should be OC but I'll give you some examples just in case It would be pairs like Neville and Luna, and Draco and Harry, who never got together in the series but people still ship anyway. They don't have to be HP but I thought that would be the best example to give.
Does that help?

what exactly do you mean by a "storyline"? do you mean that we just describe briefly about their lives together?
this is a tricky prompt lol.

Just an extract of their storyline, like an episode. So it could be when they meet, when they first start dating, when they get married. Does that make more sense? @enyang

ok I am confused

I read this

as needing to be established characters but in different relationships but then you answered this to a question
Quote:
I'm going for they should be OC



so now I am so confused.....

and I am guessing has to be for the Harry Potter fandom?

@snakesnitch43 sorry my bad. I thought OC was original canon

I think this still applies to your question though. Like you could do Stiles and Derek (Teen Wolf) or Elijah and Elena (TVD) if you wanted as well. Does that make sense?

ok cool.

If we do use another fandom, since it is unknown if the judges know the fandom should we include a short character blurb before it just so you know like the basics of the character?

Sure, but it's not necessary. We can get to know the characters through your extract

Oh, okay, I think I get it. I've never been the best at romance, tho, so haha sorry if my writing is really clumsy. It's not easy for a twelve year old to write loveydovey stuff.

So can I have it be like when they're not a "thing" yet, or do they need to already have feelings for each other?

I have a question, does it count if they had a canon relationship but broke up quickly? Or does it have to be completely non-canon?

@Lilyanabell they should not have feelings for each other, or that is what should be shown in the book/movie etc.

@Safire-black no it should be two official characters.

@Amelia-Avery it should be completely not-canon - that's where the fun is

@Morgana-Malipiero I'm not quite sure I can explain it completely differently. Can you look through everyone else's comments and then make another judgement? The questions asked and answerd should help you understand.

i did read through all the posts but it still seems strange to me

if it was romeo and juliet, the story uses different characters, not R+J? just inspired by their story?
like juliet ends up with another guy in the actual play by Shakespeare? you want us to change an existing story?

Like Madam Pomfrey with Dumbledore? That’s the best example I can think of for you Morgana.
