This September, our Contest Team invited you to take part in the Fred and George Weasley's First Encounter with Filch Contest; the contest asked you to write a story of no more than 750 words detailing the first time Fred and George encountered the Hogwarts caretaker, Argus Filch. After receiving many brilliant entries, the judges have now selected winners as follows:
1st Place: Malfoy Diva
2nd Place: shosier
3rd Place: madeyedmuggle
Clicking the winners' usernames will take you to their winning entries at the Leaky Lounge. The first place winner will receive a handcrafted wand donated by Wizard Wood Wands and 200 MyLeaky points. Congratulations to the winners and everyone else who entered!
All three of these were great…Although, I have to say I kind of like the one done by Shosier the best because it gives a little insight into how Fred and George got the Marauder’s Map. Madeyemuggle’s was most like reading a real Harry Potter book to me though. Great work to you all!
Congratulations guys the stories were great!
Shosier I love how you captured the twins attitudes toward Filch and the story was a nice lead into what they do later when they come back and find the Mauraders Map in the filing cabnets.
Madeyedmuggle the stair-surfing stunt was brilliant I loved it! And it made me wonder afterward if the twins ever thought to try that on the moving staircases. Can you imagine them flying off the end of one of those because it moved at the wrong moment???
Wow, these were all really fun to read, as well as credible backstory to the canon. If JKR ever does decide to toss off another book in the Potterverse, it seems like the twins’ wrongdoings at Hogwarts could easily occupy a whole volume by themselves. We can only hope…but meanwhile, these episodes give us more to think about! Thanks to all, and good job!
