The Disguised Affections Challenge!

Valentine's Day (blech lol) is just around the corner so we thought to put on a little challenge to entice, excite and ensnare! :D

The Disguised Affections challenge!

Polyjuice Glamours and Masques oh my!!!

The rules:

They are simple, pick a prompt and disguise it! Glamours, Polyuice Potion, Masques and Transfiguration!!

  • Sent on a 'dream' holiday by her meddling friends, Hermione is equally horrified and excited to find herself at Polyjuice Paradiso, the premiere holiday spot for the wealthy, elite and influential. Leave your identity at the door it's time for fun!
  • Masque your magic at the annual Potter Valentine's Ball!!
  • She was painfully familiar, the witch astride a gigantic martini glass, naked except for a tiny paid of green lace knickers...
  • She would find the masked man who kept throwing exploding roses into her office.
  • It was exciting to think that the man across from her could be anyone, friend, enemy or ex lover. Hermione Granger was sick of being the good girl and decides that only the bad girls have fun.
  • Mirror Mirror on the wall who has the best glamour of all?
  • No one would think that Hermione Granger was the creator of (insert your own) when her investors demand a meeting, she's faced with friends and foe from her past and bluffs her way with glamours/polyjuice/transfiguration
  • Losing a bet to Ginny Weasley was never going to end in happiness and laughter, but taking beauty lessons from Draco Malfoy? She must be in an alternate universe (Draco teaches Hermione the use of glamours and charms)
  • She'll get her only chance to make fantasy a reality on the eve of his wedding (Polyjuiced Hermione as the soon to be wife)
  • He'd seen her lush, barely covered arse and was in he just had to find out who she was!

  • Fics must have a happy ending for Hermione
  • Must be 2000 words or more
  • No WIPS
  • All ratings
  • All pairings
  • Fics in by February 14th
  • Category will be 'Vday Disguised Affections 2012'

Questions...? Ask them here!!

*covers eyes* No, no, no, no. Not seeing those prompts. Not seeing them. *sings loudly as a distraction and goes back to current WIP* Yes, not seeing these enticing prompts at all. Nope. XD

I saw them and I love them. *sigh* I am soooo gonna be doing this one. Jodes baited the hook with fabulous prompts and cast her line. Kel bit. Nuff said.

Hey hey hey now, no 'blech' for my bday!  

And how funny it is that you should post these prompts, when one of them actually gave me inspiration for a plot bunny that was trying to crush my head.  I think I'll be participating :)

- nocturnalwriter777 on 06/01/2012 - 08:48 pm

Question, though.  Does a prompt have to be actually used in that exact context or could it be sort of just inspired by it or in general? I don't think I'm quite asking it right but what is that exact rules on prompts?  Part of my issue is the prompt says singular, but um... my plot bunny is insisting on plural and it hasn't quite decided if they're sitting at the time.  I can work it in, no problem, just wondering here

- nocturnalwriter777 on 06/01/2012 - 09:14 pm

I haven't finished the last ones I started so there's no way that I can do this one.  Though the prompts do seem like fun.  Can't wait to see what comes from them!

- WiccaWitch on 06/01/2012 - 11:30 pm

lol Nocturnal you can have any pairing you like :D eg: the polyjuice holiday could end up with a different man/woman each night lol as long as the general theme is there it'll be cool

- MistressMalfoy on 07/01/2012 - 01:00 am

Exploding roses sooo screams 'Weasley twin/s.' I may actually be able to write something for this, though it might not count depending on how wordy my borrowed muse gets.

Question: can I COMBINE more than one prompt? That may spur more creativity.

- Draceline on 07/01/2012 - 03:02 am

I was also thinking of combining a couple of prompts. Of course, I still have my eyes covered, so the combining is theoretically. And I haven't copied the prompts to a doc yet or brainstormed on them at all. Noooo. ;)

- dax on 07/01/2012 - 04:58 am

Oh my, the prompt with the giant martini glass reminds me of a CSI:NY episode. They're all so tempting! But I don't think I can do this challenge, I have exams until the 26th... If I do join in, it'll be after that and I'll have to write quickly. Buuuuutttt... It's so tempting! *sighs longingly*

- Obsidian on 07/01/2012 - 05:09 am

Obsidian lol Dita Von Teese inspired me with that one hahaha

Dax/Draceline combine away!

- MistressMalfoy on 07/01/2012 - 09:32 am

Those are great prompts, but I may have to pass. I know I've got a busy time coming up and I mustn't take on too much. Sorry! I'm still trying to finish a challenge for MM's birthday about two years ago - the one with Dark!Hermione and Ron ending up no more ... What I'd written was pretty decent too ... I may have to try to finish it. Not sure it would fit with Valentine's Day however. Hmm.

- laurielove on 07/01/2012 - 11:31 am

Now I've got an idea with Hermione doing Burlesque... MM, you are amazing. But it'll have to wait... My first exam is next week. Eeek! 

- Obsidian on 07/01/2012 - 03:07 pm

Good to know we may combine prompts. The bad news is: lacking time and loads of inspiration on this evil bunny. I'll see how it goes. I'm not a fast writer and the fourteenth is quick. 

- dax on 07/01/2012 - 04:00 pm

Wrote 1,000 words on this bunny. Damn you, GE! ;)

- dax on 07/01/2012 - 04:42 pm

Write, Dax, write! I'm going to wait for your story now... ;) Think of this as me returning the favour and spurring on a fab author. *nudge, nudge* 

- Obsidian on 07/01/2012 - 04:48 pm

*whistles* Innocent Blinkies...

- Reynardo on 08/01/2012 - 01:21 am

So tempting...

- Meiri on 08/01/2012 - 02:20 pm

Need to finish my bill_ficathon fic.  I will have to pass this one up... But I'm looking forward to reading.

- blue artemis on 08/01/2012 - 09:10 pm

Mmm, might have to polish of the old muse and write a Hermione fic again. Some great prompts there. 

- Vickie on 08/01/2012 - 10:57 pm

Do it, Vickie!

- Meiri on 09/01/2012 - 01:36 am

Oh so tempting...

- minervasrevenge on 11/01/2012 - 05:34 pm

Oh, thank heaven, the first prompt doesn't necessarily have to take place at Valentine's day. I had a time issue. No way could Hermione be near the end of her pregnancy from October 31 to Valentine's day. However, since it's for the rich and the spoilt, they can have Valentine's day at that resort whenever they want in the year. Plus, that gives me something Hermione and company can mock about.  *sniggers*  

- dax on 12/01/2012 - 04:32 am

My bill_fic got finished and these prompts!  AAAAAAGHGHGHG!  I started writing already...

- blue artemis on 16/01/2012 - 04:23 pm

good girl lol

- MistressMalfoy on 18/01/2012 - 06:54 am

This story is writing itself.  3800 words and I'm about half way through.  Oh, and I got you another participant.

- blue artemis on 18/01/2012 - 09:49 pm

The promp thing means to write with the theme or to copy it literally? And, the disguised word means the persons (particulary, the face) has to be disguised or the actions? A promp gave me a huge idea and I already wrote half the story, it wouldn't be difficult to adapt it but I want the story to fit in the challenge. One last question... It doesn't say it in the promp I chose but is it or is it not necesary for the story to be set (not an uploading time limit but the plot time location) on feb. 14th?


- Dwimordene on 19/01/2012 - 10:55 am

Mine's finished, but I need a beta.  Please?


- blue artemis on 21/01/2012 - 10:17 pm

I'm mad. I had a story, still do, and I have it mostly planned out. It was a good idea, sexy too.  But my muse is being SO DAMNED STUBBORN!

- nocturnalwriter777 on 22/01/2012 - 01:59 pm

I found a beta.  I'm happy.  I hope you all like my story.  Turned out over 9000 words.

- blue artemis on 22/01/2012 - 03:56 pm

Sounds familiar, nocturnalwriter. I got the same problem, so I may post it at a later date when the muse is more cooperative.
