In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community has been denied the truth about the teenager’s recent encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort. Fearing that Hogwarts’ venerable Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about Voldemort’s return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students. But Professor Dolores Umbridge’s Ministry-approved course of defensive magic leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to defend themselves against the dark forces threatening them and the entire wizarding community, so at the prompting of his friends Hermione and Ron, Harry takes matters into his own hands. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves “Dumbledore’s Army,” Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.
This contest ends 7/30/07.

Fast and furious!

Excuse the unsettling background change, it was that or blurred to bits zoom-ins.

Harry Potter and the hermit crab and why it's hard to throw parties

By Christopher Lindstrom Clindstrom@bridgew.edu

jared Jul 9th, 2007 02:16 PM

I despise Harry Potter, as it represents all that is atrocious about contemporary popular tastes in fiction. All the same, I love these contest, so here's my entry:

jared Jul 9th, 2007 02:17 PM

And a variation on theme:

Grislygus Jul 9th, 2007 07:00 PM

I could not possibly care less about this.

BUT, having sponsored contests pop up this quick is nice, so whatever.

Yggdrasill Jul 12th, 2007 05:02 AM

Yggdrasill Jul 13th, 2007 10:57 PM

I played to win and hopefully I have. I will make another if neccesary.

executioneer Jul 13th, 2007 11:37 PM

LackofInnovation Jul 13th, 2007 11:53 PM

Me too, and it's also pretty funny. You're missing out RoG.

There's some photoshopping in the one I made.

Obscurus Lupa Jul 14th, 2007 02:35 PM

Rog- Geocities had just temporarily exceeded bandwidth, but the story is back up now. If it happens again, I'll find another server. :)

Fathom Zero Jul 14th, 2007 06:59 PM

Just use this, bro:


Obscurus Lupa Jul 15th, 2007 12:49 AM

Thanks a lot! I'll fix my first post.

jared Jul 15th, 2007 05:37 PM

Alright, I see that most of the posts so far are much better than my two so far. So I've decided to do a third. Enjoy.

Blue Fox Jul 19th, 2007 05:10 PM

I don't wanna read all that!! I'm too lazy...

Thanks, I definately could have made mine better.

Obscurus Lupa Jul 29th, 2007 12:43 PM

Mynx- I like the entry, but it's a pain in the butt to open up each individual square and wait for the page to load...

Mynx Jul 29th, 2007 05:17 PM

I know it isnt fun opening and loading, but, sorry, thats all i was able to make.

arg_zombies Jul 29th, 2007 05:32 PM

JeromeMoiso Jul 30th, 2007 05:37 PM

Harry Potter Contest

And that's all I've got to say about that...

hypnotic_peach Jul 30th, 2007 07:29 PM

haha..creepy stalker Ron!

JeromeMoiso Jul 30th, 2007 07:52 PM

Unfortunately, I didn't consider the fact that this was my first post ever. Considering its contents, I think I may have inadvertently classified myself as creepy.

God Dammit...

hypnotic_peach Jul 30th, 2007 09:49 PM

don't worry, i've seen worse things on the forums.

Mynx Jul 31st, 2007 01:52 PM

When do we get the results? :confused:

hypnotic_peach Jul 31st, 2007 03:17 PM

Obscurus Lupa Aug 3rd, 2007 11:11 AM

Rog is busy with moving and such. We'll get the results eventually.

toonamil Aug 3rd, 2007 07:44 PM

That's abuse of power, man! Don't do it! You'll kill us all!

Except Steve. He's behind a rock.

Obscurus Lupa Aug 4th, 2007 10:21 PM

This should've been my entry:


toonamil Aug 5th, 2007 10:57 AM

Needs more burning if you ask me.

JeromeMoiso Aug 7th, 2007 06:03 PM

I think they forgot about us... oh well, posting redonk lists about the things you hate are probably more important anyways! Maybe next week, instead of announcing a winner, we can get a grocery list or something! :)

I kid, I kid...

Protoclown Aug 9th, 2007 06:47 PM

We're currently voting on the winner in a SECRET THREAD in a SECRET FORUM!

LackofInnovation Aug 9th, 2007 11:26 PM

The suspense is terrible. I hope it will last...

Mockery Aug 10th, 2007 03:56 AM

Alright everybody, the votes have been cast and the winner is Yggdrasill's "gyspy / wear your face like a mask" entry by a landslide. Yggdrasill, please send me a PM with your full name and contact info so I can send out your copy of the game.

As always, thanks to all of you who participated in this latest contest. I swear these things are getting better and better each time. Also, thanks for your patience with us casting our votes... it's mainly my fault since I've been so busy with Comic-Con, BlizzCon and moving to a new place.

Speaking of which, as soon as I'm done moving, you can expect some more contests to go up on the forum shortly after. All kinds o' spiffy prizes await!

JeromeMoiso Aug 10th, 2007 04:15 AM

Congrats brotha!

LackofInnovation Aug 10th, 2007 05:53 AM

I don't know, I would have gone with Obscurus Lupa's 5th grade picture. If only he submitted it before the contest ended...

MLE Aug 10th, 2007 02:50 PM

Ygg's is the only one I ended up laughing out loud to, so I'm glad he won.

Yggdrasill Aug 10th, 2007 02:53 PM

oh baby yes fill my prize hole with sweet prizes

Obscurus Lupa Aug 10th, 2007 09:36 PM

Man, I thought "A Tipical Day at Hogwarts" was a shoe-in.

Congrats, Yggdrasill. I'll best ya next time!

Yggdrasill Aug 11th, 2007 11:12 AM

I knew I would win, girl. By the way you apparently didn't even read the rules.

hypnotic_peach Aug 11th, 2007 03:12 PM

congratulations, dude
i'm looking forward to the next contest.

Obscurus Lupa Aug 11th, 2007 06:59 PM

Yggdrasill- My fifth grade picture was a joke. I know it had to be screenshots from the game. Also, it was submitted AFTER the contest ended. :P

toonamil Aug 13th, 2007 09:47 AM

Congrats. I thought Harry's Secret Place would work, but oh well. They are other things I can do like eat humans.
