Harry potter 7

Imagine the following scenario: You are asleep in your dorm when Harry materializes in front of you. He and the team need your help to track down the Horcruxes. (NAGINI (SNAKE), GOBLET, DIARY, LOCKET, RING, DIADEM, AND PART OF VOLDEMORT'S SOUL.) The team members are required to write and creative campfire story about you adventures. You don't have to write about all of them. If your team chooses to concentrate on one or each teammate wants to write about a different one, that is up to you, but each part of the story must link with the previous part of the story. Extra points will be given for the smoothness of the handover.

Task 1: The first team member starts the campfire story. (100-500 words)

Task 2: The next team member continues the campfire story.(100-500 words)

Task 3: The next team member continues the campfire story.(100-500 words)

After the last teammate has completed their task they will transfer their campfires to the leader of another team for Round 8. We will inform you which team you'll be transferring your item to after round 7 is completed.

Task 2:The second member of the team will continue the campfire. (100-500 words)

Task 3: The last member of the team will conclude the adventure. Now, we know how hard this is as your former team mate might semi- conclude or leave it open for you hence, your word parameter will be bigger. (50- 750 words)

You can mail me if you have any questions regarding this.

and "Suggestions"  . Schnujo's post was very illuminating and if you can go through it and maybe add on to or even second some of her suggestions for us to consider especially or if any of you have/had any complaint/ inconveniences or simply wished that some things might have been better if you could have done them like this rather than like that, let us know. We really want to make this contest grand and can't possibly do that without you guys. Thank you!
