Winter 2009 Time Turner Contest

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, will be to write a story revolving around either one of our lovely pairing using a Time Turner. It can even be both of them if you’re up to the task!

Story Requirements

All entries MUST:
-Strongly feature Draco/Ginny. This is pretty much the only ironclad stipulation. Secondary pairings, if any, are unrestricted.
-The story can be angsty, humorous, smutty, whatever your little heart desires. It can also be set at any point in their relationship.
-Be a minimum of 1,500 words not counting headers and author's notes. No maximum on word count.

Please adhere to acceptable standards of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and characterization. These factors, as well as story content and guideline adherence, will determine placement. Please note that net-speak will result in automatic disqualification basically because it drives all of the judges insane.

It must be a new story that has not been previously posted to a major archive (Fiction Alley, Portkey, FanFiction.net, FIA, Restricted Section, etc.).

Extra notes

All submissions will be posted to the contest LJ once the judging is over.

After a week, authors will be free to post to all the usual places.

Stories can be of any rating, but please be sure to note any warnings (language, sexual situations, violence, etc.) for higher rated stories.


A panel of judges will score each entry on a 20 point scale (10 points for overall story, 5 points for originality, and the remaining 5 points for incidentals like following the rules and grammar). These individual scores will be tallied to create a final score. The entry with the highest final score will take first place; second-highest score will take second place; and so on.

Each entry will be stripped of author identification before being sent on to the judges for scoring, helping to ensure objectivity in the judging.

The judges this time around will be mynuet, dragonsangel68, embe11ished, and eustacia_vye.

The judges will be not eligible to submit an entry. They can, however, write a story if they want. I won't stop them!


Winners will be announced approximately a week after the due date, but this is subject to change depending on the number of entries.

First Place Winner: A photobooth mug, Lush bath bombs, and something really, really cool, as yet to be determined by me. :)
Second Place Winner: A photobooth mug and some Lush bath bombs
Third Place Winner: A photobooth mug
