Guidelines [Sep. 20th, 2004|11:05 pm]
Hogwarts, A History


Write about the history of Hogwarts; for purposes of this project, we are setting that date as 990 A.D. Please write in narrative form, mimicking the style of a school textbook as much as possible. You can feel free to look to either of JKR's Hogwarts Schoolbooks (Quidditch Through the Ages or Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them) for stylistic inspiration; footnotes and endnotes are allowed but not required.

You must include at least one item from the Muggle history and one item from the Wizarding history in the timeline.

The winner of each round will be able to use a special icon on FictionAlley, and after we've changed the forum software to an upgraded version (Fall, '04), everyone who's submitted a chapter by that point will get either use of a larger Owl box or a "notepad" through October 1, 2005.
