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:
- Leave a comment below with which House you’d like to be in, (I’ll put up a list of those already Sorted below)
- Have fun doing any of the tasks below!
- 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
- 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
- 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:
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]
