This month's contest is inspired by none other than Messrs Fred and George Weasley and asks you to write the story of a prank the Weasley twins played on their family members. Stories should be no more than 500 words and should not conflict with canon. Email your submission to contests@the-leaky-cauldron.org by 11:59 pm (EDT) on April 30th, with "Family Prank" in the subject line of the e-mail.  Please copy-paste your description into the body of the e-mail and include a name to be used for authorship. You may use your real name or your Leaky Lounge name.

Winners will receive a copy of the book The Practitioners Guide to Wand Magic by William C. Wilson, both donated by Wizard Wood Wands, as well as 200 MyLeaky points. Second, third, and honorable mention(s) will receive 150, 100, and 50 MyLeaky points respectively. You can read more about the contest here.

Good luck!

Topic’s very broad, don’t you think? I’m quite excited, I have a couple of ideas already for this prompt! Tricky part is to go under the word limit. Why, Leaky? Word limits are one of my greatest challenges in writing.

I’m expecting this should be fun but, I don’t think I can squeeze this with all my other HP-related plans. Though I’m looking forward to reading the entries, too.

It’s a prank that you make up that you think Fred and George might have pulled on a member of their family. All of the details are in the link provided at the bottom of the description. I hope that helps!

Well it sounds great and I can think of a couple of things that they could’ve done but I don’t think I’ll try for this one this time and I don’t think I’d be able to stay under the word count.
