Harry Potter Month House Cup

HP month badge

As you may have heard, Micheline and I are hosting Harry Potter month throughout the month of July – a celebration of all things Harry Potter! If you’d like to join in, feel free! You can post about pretty much anything Harry Potter related, or take part in the House Cup at any time throughout the month, and we’d love to have you share your love for HP!

So, if you’re here, I’m hoping you’re interested in taking part in the Harry Potter Month House Cup! To take part is really really simple:

  1. Leave a comment below with which House you’d like to be in, (I’ll put up a list of those already Sorted below)
  2. Have fun doing any of the tasks below!
  3. Come back as often as you like and leave a comment with any points you’ve earned, and I’ll add them to your House’s total
  4. Once a week I’ll recap the points so far, and on the 2nd of August I’ll declare one house the House Cup Winners
  5. Enjoy, and maybe win a prize 😉

What if I want want to change House?

If you decide you’d like to change House, you can do that any time before you’ve earned points (otherwise it becomes too confusing for me to keep totals right!)

Rules are boring – just tell me how to earn the points!

Read a Harry Potter fanfiction: 1 point per chapter (let us know which in the comments!)
Leave a comment on any Harry Potter month post: 2 points
Waching a HP documentary: 3 points
Complete a Pottermore chapter (let us know which!): 4 points
Write HP fanfiction: 3 points per chapter
Watch one of the films: 5 points
Reading one of the Hogwarts Library/Companion books: 6 points
Post as part of Harry Potter month: 10 points
Take part in HP Moment of the Week: 10 points
Make a Harry Potter craft/recipe: 15 points
Host a giveaway: 15 points
Read one of the books: 20 points

** Tasks can be combined (within reason!) E.g.  If you write a fanfiction chapter (3 points) and then post about it (10 points), you can combine to get 13 points overall (but you can’t post four times about the same fanfiction chapter and claim the points four times!) **

How do I update my points?

Just leave a comment below with your name, house and any points you’ve earned since you last commented.  Something like this would do perfectly:

Faith (Slytherin)
5 Comments = 10 points
1 Post = 10 points

If you’d rather skip the maths, feel free! Just let me know which tasks you completed and I’ll do my best to add everything up correctly.

Is there a prize?

One participant will win a book of their choice (up to £10) from The Book Depository (assuming you’re in one of the countries they deliver to) OR a £10 Amazon.co.uk gift card – their choice.  For every house point you earn, you’ll get one entry into the prize draw.  You can sign up for the cup until the 23rd of July, and you’ve got until midnight BST on the 1st of August to comment with your points for them to count.  I’ll announce the winner on Sunday 2nd August via Twitter and/or email.

[Someone suggested we add a Linky so that people can easily hop around from here as well as from the schedule, so that you’re in the same place to collect your points once you’ve commented.  If you want to add your HP month posts below for people to do that, feel free 🙂 Please make sure you’re linking directly to a post though, to make it easy for people to keep track of what they’ve commented on already etc]

    Christina recently posted…HP MoTW (6): One Thing I’d ChangeMy Profile

    • Hi Christina, fair question, and honestly, no idea! I’m still WAY back on Chamber of Secrets, so I did some searching and the Pottermore Wiki has each of those 6 pages as moments in different chapters. On their moments page they say chapters are divided into 2-4 moments, so does it seem fair to you if we say that three moments is the same as one chapter? (with the logic that 3 moments is about average per chapter?) That’d give you 8 points for these 6 pages, the same as if you’d done two chapters from start to end?

    • Ah I’m jealous of comic con! London Film and Comic Con is on this weekend, but I’m away for the weekend so can’t go 🙁 I went last year though and there were definitely Harry Potter cosplays. Though probably not as many as Game of Thrones or Frozen!

    [Can you tell I spent some serious time reading on my phone when it was my other half’s turn to drive on the way to and from our weekend away?!]

    [Also, everything from below this comment will be going into next week’s house cup update]

  33. Eep, I should really update where I’m at! I’ve forgotten to do so until now X)

    Okay, so far I’ve read the first five books and watched the first five movies and I’ve been completed the first five books on Pottermore as I go…

    So hopefully I’ll get this right:
    For Aylee (Hufflepuff):
    5 books read = 5 x 20 = 100
    5 films watched = 5 x 5 = 25

    Pottermore chapters are a bit trickier because I’ve noticed that the later books are sadly very incomplete and they skip a lot of the chapters. But from what I can tell, I’ve completed:
    106 Pottermore chapters = 106 x 4 = 424

    And I’ve commented on 7 posts so far = 7 x 2 = 14

    I hope this makes sense! Hopefully someone can let me know if I’ve done something wrong, especially with respect to the Pottermore chapters because that seems like a hell of a lot of points. And I’ll try to update more regularly from here on out so I don’t lose track.

  52. Hi all, I’m back again, with an exciting announcement coming up very soon for the House Cup 😀 Micheline and I have a twist for you, to be revealed in my next comment!

    Faith (Slytherin) half points
    Read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix = 10 points

  53. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

    Any tasks completed within the final ~48 hours of the House Cup are worth DOUBLE THE POINTS!

    This is a couple of hours early since I’ll be in bed, but any points earned after midnight tonight UK time are worth double points – just claim them the same way you normally do but for twice as many points (and of course twice as many giveaway entries!)

    [A further twist is that Micheline & I will also be announcing a few awards for certain people on Saturday/Sunday which will come with extra house points – you’ll have to wait and see what they are though!]
