Mistress Malfoy's Birthday!!!!

One day not very long ago, November 20 to be exact, a beautiful baby girl was born who later became the beloved Mistress Malfoy. You could tell this because of her precocious ability with a whip and her fondness for arrogant blonde men. Without this love, we would not have this site. So without further ado, let us all wish our wonderful site founder and administrator a very Happy Happy Birthday and a wonderful day full of surprises and love!!!


We love you! xoxoxo

BETA, BETA and more BETA

To all authors


You may not see me, but I am still around, so I would like to remind everyone that your submission MUST be beta'd.  I would also like to remind you that if the submission is beta'd and there are several mistakes, we WILL reject the submission.  Submission rules are in place for a reason and that is to make the submission and validation process run smoothly; however, if people continue to submit unbeta'd or poorly beta'd submissions, it delays the process. 


This is an ONGOING problem, and there have been several news articles regarding this matter, you are all mature, intelligent adults and I should not have to do this on a regular basis.   


If you have any questions, please re-read the submission rules, which also include the consequences or you can contact any site admin.


I thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

October 31st Challenge

 


Samhain!! *dances about with flowers and bonfires* lol


Traditionally in the HP world October is for Halloween, but since there are only approximately three countries in the world that are active participants in Halloween, we have decided (like every year) to snub our noses at the silly begging for lollies holiday and showcase Samhain instead!


The challenge will be simple...


Samhain is a time to honour the dead, to celebrate the connection between this world and the next.


Pick from the following prompts...


1. Hermione has always scoffed at the divining magics, until Luna Lovegood informs her that Apple/Water/Food Divination has been a Samhain tradition for centuries...and who is she to snub tradition?  (LINK TO SAMHAIN DIVINATON)


2. Every year she lays an offering of sweets and mulled mead to the former Headmaster Dumbledore, except this year she isn't alone.


3. Surrounded by friends and family, Hermione joins those closest to her, to honour the harvest - and the cinders will erupt into flames when he arrives, the wizard who is a rival for her husband's affections. (LINK TO HONOUR THE HARVEST)


4. The gods have chosen Hermione Granger as the handmaiden to continue the most noble line of (Choose a deceased wizard of any era). When the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, he will emerge from the mists and take the witch as his own. (Your choice whether he returns to the living permanently)


5. The three day festival of the Samhain, draws Hermione into a world of earth magic, nighttime hedonistic worshipping of the body,  paganistic rituals and a celebration of life. Take Hermione on a journey of self discovery and open her eyes to the real magic at her fingertips (day time rituals can include, broom making, rune tattooing, food gathering etc)


 


The boring rules!



  • Fic must be in by November 1st at the latest

  • Multi Chapters are encouraged but all chapters must be complete by November first to prevent abandonment of fic.

  • Fic must be at least 3000 words.

  • Any pairings/rating/Genre welcome

  • Fics MUST centre around Samhain and not Halloween.

  • No trick or treating allowed

  • No Pumpkin carving unless it relates directly to Samhain or a ritual

  • Happy endings please! :D

  • No whining lol <--- my personal favourite rule

Update to Submission Rules

AMENDED TO ADD


(this news post is being edited for the following addition)


Summaries will now be restricted to, at the most, four sentences of text. A new code is slowly being introduced to reduce the size of summaries, any new fic submitted with more than four lines summary will be asked to edit to a smaller summary.)


Hello my loves! Just a few changes to our lovely submission rules!


1. We now have a pending section - Pending is for fics that require minor adjustments, disclaimers, and have less than five errors, etc.


2. You will now receive a pending letter with three days to fix your story before it's deleted.


3. Authors will be required to alert admin when their story has been fixed and your story will then go back into the submission queue for review.


4. We realise how time consuming it is to upload a story and are taking it seriously, hence the new pending section.


5. After three days if you haven't contacted admin or made any effort to change your story, it shall be deleted without an email contact.


We receive a lot of complaints about which stories we let in and which ones we don't (mostly from the people who are rejected) and all I can say is, try the other two quality controlled archives and see how far you get. It won't be far I promise you that :)

Staff wanted for Incendio!

 


What an exciting month of September for Granger Enchanted. Rather than falling to the death of fandom after the final movie was released, we are busier and more popular than ever!


With frequent requests for something a little different, I've bowed to peer pressure (lol) and in the coming weeks we will be opening Incendio! A general pairing adult fan fiction archive. Any pairing goes as long as Hermione isn't the main, so Harry/Pansy, Harry/Ginny, Narcissa/Lucius etc


Staff vacancies:


Admin:


Your roles include,



  • Validating fics

  • Petting Authors

  • Organising Challenges

  • Pimping Archive (or hiring people to do it for you)

  • Maintaining our high quality of fiction

  • Frontline with requests, emails etc

  • Liaise with MistressMalfoy


Requirements:



  • 100% pass on a GE beta exam or a PI certified beta badge

  • Known to admin already (we will not be hiring strangers so don't bother applying unless I know you)

  • Be an author already (this is not a deal breaker but we would prefer an established author)

  • be kind and patient (again not a deal breaker lol)

  • Preferably someone already in the non hermione pairing fandoms


So how do you apply? Well first you will need to fill out the following application form:

Fandom Experience:


Beta cert:

Why do you want this job?


How many free hours per week do you have?


From the initial application we will have three stages- if you pass the email app, you will move onto a simple test, passing the test you move onto a trial submissions witch to test your mettle against the world- passing this you will move onto admin position.


Once I have appointed the new admin we will then be searching for submission witches, twitter posters and pimpers, so watch this space.

The 8th Year Itch and Time Turning the Future!

Because the poll was such a close result at the time of penning the challenges, I have decided to let them both run at the same time and you can choose which (or both) you'd like to attempt.

  • The 8th Year Itch (where the young adults are forced back for Newts)
  • Time Turning the Future (in which Hermione winds up in the future with the next generation)

The Eighth Year Itch Challenge!

Forced back to Hogwarts to complete their NEWTS we welcome the 8th years!! Five months after the war has ended all witches and wizards that missed their seventh year are forced back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, even our golden trio is not exempt, with Kingsley Shacklebolt unwilling to show favouritism, even to their world’s saviour!

Join us as we take a journey through the 8th year, with their own tower, barely any rules and house loyalties skewed...we’re about to have a bumpy ride!

THE RULES!!

Canon Facts that MUST be included!

  • Voldemort’s death
  • The Trio’s Horcrux Quest
  • Malfoy Manor Capture
  • Ron/Hermione’s kiss
  • Harry/Ginny relationship (you can have them break up or keep them together it’s up to you!)


Non Canon Facts that MUST be included.

  • Ginny Weasley is Headgirl
  • The 8th years have no delegated houses
  • They all live together in one tower, sharing a common room, kitchen, bathroom (which should resemble the Prefect bathroom)
  • They are required to attend at least two meals per day in the Great Hall where they have their own designated 8th year table
  • One illicit teacher/student Student/Older male not at Hogwarts relationship(this student must be in the 8th year class and can be Hermione or a minor pairing)
  • One slash pairing
  • Hogsmeade/Diagon Alley visits whenever they like, not limited to weekends (again this can just be mentioned to set the scene)
  • Tension between Hermione/Ginny Weasley (eg: Ginny thinks she can waltz about the 8th year dorm when no one wants her there)
  • A voyeur
  • A couple caught in flagrante delicto
  • Hermione defending someone (can be anyone you choose)
  • Whoever is dead can be alive again (WITH valid explanation)


Boring Rules

  • Multi chapter encouraged
  • Mature + ratings
  • 17th August due by
  • All pairings

Time Turning the Future!

Caught by a long forgotten, obscure spell, Hermione Granger awakens at 12 Grimmauld Place, confused, cold and alone in the dark. Upon investigation she finds the house empty of anything resembling life. Without a wand and no one answering her calls, Hermione ventures to Diagon Alley to find a very different world than she left.

  • THE RULES!
  • Hermione is touched by a spell that sends her forward in time to 2020
  • Grimmauld Place has been boardered up, long since abandoned by Harry after Hermione’s supposed death there
  • A magical tattoo that links Hermione, Harry and Ron and allows them to communicate
  • A past sordid relationship between Hermione and one of the following : Draco, Harry, Blaise, Severus, Remus, Dean, Lucius (if you have another please let me know so I can list it)
  • A love affair with one of the next generation: Teddy, Scorpius, James or Albus Severus
  • Angst with Harry/Ron
  • A guided tour of the future and what she could have achieved
  • What happened after she left and who was blamed for her disappearance
  • A jealous Ginny, who should resemble her mother and whom Harry refers to as Molly Junior behind her back
  • A balding Draco who was hexed by Ron to lose his hair which Hermione fixes
  • An odd friendship with Teddy, Scorpius, James or Albus reminiscent of the golden trio much to Harry and Ron’s displeasure
  • To save the squicks, please call any children from Ronald something other than Hugo and Rose, I have purposefully left Hugo off the romantic list for a reason (it’s a little gross!) lol
  • Hermione should be 19 or older and must not be more than five years older than her new lover
  • A happy ending in which Hermione finally finds a sense of peace and her place in the world

BORING RULES!

  • Maximum Five Chapters!
  • Minimum  2000 words
  • Due date: August 5th
  • Ratings: Mature +
  • Categories/Pairings: any and all as long as it’s believable and Hermione ends up/loves a new generation wizard

Any questions? Please leave them here! xoxox

Server Upgrade - please be patient!

Over the next 72 hours we will be experiencing some minor site outages as our webhost attempts to move everything from our server to the new, faster and more secure server.

This means we hope to never have downtime again as we will be free of the lacklustre server performance our shared hosting brought.

There might be a slight amount of information lost during the transfer but I will do my best to limit this from happening. Any stories uploaded from today will not be validated until the new site is up and running, this leaves us without any recent updates from non validated authors for up to 72 hours.

We ask for your continued patience and understanding in this matter and will restore (cross fingers) all files within a couple of days.

Stories can still be read and reviewed during this time as I will transfer the databases containing these images to the new server personally.

MistressMalfoy

Gifts for Elou and a new challenge!!

In behalf of every single author who has ever received a beautiful review from the lovely Elou- we wish you a speedy speedy speedy recovering xoxo For now please enjoy several stories from the author's of GE under the heading of Challenges- Gifts for Elou. More stories will be added as they start to filter in xoxo

And now onto the newest challenge! Currently only available on Malfoy Manor (pasted from the Manor news)

 The Great Malfoy Manor Blackmail Challenge! 

On behalf of Bunnyhops and myself (curse weaver) we would like to invite you to participate in our first challenge, designed to get the love back into The Manor and to liven up the place!

Below is a list of possible prompts for you to choose from, you can pick one or use your own plot. The premise is simple- Hermione is blackmailed by a Malfoy or Vice Versa.



1.) Hermione is caught by (Malfoy of your choice) buying an untraceable contraceptive potion in Knockturn Alley.

2.) Hermione is having an affair with Malfoy1 and Malfoy2 discovers thisand uses it to his advantage- threatening to tell the world of her treachery.


3.) Hermione is blackmailed by her Malfoy lover, in an attempt to make her leave Ronald for him/her.

4.) Hermione is revealed to have incredible power and (Malfoy of your choice) seduces her to use for blackmail to control Hermione and her power. (Dark story option)

5.) Hermione blackmails either Astoria or Narcissa to get close to the Malfoy's. Could be a sexual relationship between the witches, could be hatred, truly only your fics can tell!



Rules:

1.       Post DH - Lets give people the opportunity to bring Scorpius in as the pairing if they wish, which opens up so many possibilities, including time-turners. Your setting is whenever you wish, but don't forget Scorpius and Abraxas when you're considering your pairing!

You can either a.) have Hermione cheat on Ronald, which would give
MistressMalfoy happy convulsions.

b.) Kill Ronald, which would give Curse Weaver and Bunnyhops happy convulsions.

c.) Give in to the blackmail and break Ronald's heart by divorcing him. (These options are only suggestions. SOME admins will do anything including beg and plead to get Ron Weasley murdered.)



2.       Be creative, use the above mentioned plot points and twist them to your liking! They aren't RULES, they are suggestions. The only must is that there be blackmail by a Malfoy against Hermione or Hermione blackmailing the Malfoy’s, with the end result being Hermione/Malfoy pairing.


 
3.       Try a rare pair! (Remember a lot of people will choose Draco so pick someone else like Abraxas, Lucius, Scorpius, Narcissa or even Astoria.)



4.       All submissions must be in by May 23rd, and can include multi chapter submissions as long as they are complete.



5.       Submission rules must be adhered to, and your story must be seen to by a beta.



6.       All ratings accepted.



7.       Pairing must include a Malfoy, at least one Malfoy. Don't be prudish though, if your muse is screaming to add Narcissa or Astoria, by all means do so. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if you used Abraxas, Lucius, and Draco either.


8.       No OC’s and all stories must be set in the HP universe



9.       Your ending is entirely up to you,but again all multi chaptered fics must be complete entirely before submitting.



10.    Minimum of three thousand words.



11.    All stories should be submitted to Challenges-> Blackmail Challenge, complete with a disclaimer and relevant genres, warnings etc.

 

As for your prizes... The winner gets a feature on their winning entry and the winning banner. You may also request a one-shot of your choice (pairing etc) from myself and MistressMalfoy. Despite knowing each other for over five years and helping each other write, we've never collaborated. I can't wait to see who will win!

ELOU! Do not look at this news post...everyone else please come inside lol

Hello my loves just a little bit of secret squirrel business around the archive and I'm hoping Elou is a good little girl and doesn't peek in this news post or I'm going to have to delete her account! (lol I think we can safely say she's not looking now haha)

Okay as most of you know our dear member Elou has had a battle on her hands and at the moment is having a terrible time. She will be taking her laptop to the hospital with her so I thought it would be nice if we could all get together and do a little Elou Get Well Soon Challenge!! If anyone would like to help me out with this and write a one shot, drabble, wip please send me an email mistressmalfoy@grangerenchanted.com and I have some pairings she favours xoxoxo

Fortnightly Challenges and another goodbye! :)

From this saturday we'll be starting the fortnightly challenges, these will continue but only if we get more than three-five stories each challenge as organising challenges can be quite time consuming :)

Timetable as follows: 

  •  7-21st May:- Rarepairs (any pairing in the cats that has less than 30 stories)
  • 21st May- 4th June :-  (lucky dip!) Write a pairing you have never written before!
  • 4th June- 18th June Weasleys :- (any Weasley character with Hermione)
  • 18th June- 2nd July :- Malfoy (Abraxas, Lucius, Draco and Scorpius!)
  • 2nd July- 16th July :-Deathly Hallows Challenge

That's it for now and I look forward to setting up the first challenge starting on Saturday :)

And now it brings me to another goodbye, our friend lilbitbord who helps maintain the livejournal with daily updates is having to leave us due to real life :) We wish her all the best and hope she'll return to us one day soon xoxo

Malfoy Experience: Preferably you would a lover of the Malfoy pairings and have many contacts or relationships with authors of these pairings, enticing new Authors to our site is a requirement of the job :) You can employ an advertiser who can do this for you but they will be representing GE so need to go through the same hoops you will.

1. Do I have to pay the bills now?
A: No I will continue with that lol

2. Can I just validate and that's it?
A. We would love someone enthusiastic about the Malfoy pairings and someone who is willing to go above and beyond to ensure the success of the Archive.

3. What is involved in organising challenges?
A. We like challenges because it makes you think outside the box you write in. Perhaps it would be a word challenge or a weekly Malfoy Manor challenge to entice authors into writing more :)

A. You ask and you shall receive. I love the Malfoys and so do our other admin <3

5. Is there a probation?
A. Yes we will have a two month probation period and depending on your time zone, we can offer almost 24 hour support to our newest staff.
