    So, I don't know if nonjon would allow this(<--PS: this is my round about way of asking if you would) but I just read The Caitiff's Death Eater Hufflepuff story which he says is largely inspired by your story.

    Anyway, I would love to see an AU where Harry is sorted into Hufflepuff and, although it doesn't have to be Dark!Harry, Hufflepuff house turns out to more or less follow nonjon's Hufflepuff Manifesto. It would be pretty easy to do in a one shot, but to be honest, it would be great if someone was even willing to flush it out into a full story.

    Provided of course nonjon is ok with this.

    Edit: I'm not actually making this a challenge yet since nonjon hasn't said anything, but if it turns out to be ok, I'll re-write this in proper challenge format.

    And what exactly is the Hufflepuff manifesto, I couldn't seem to grasp that from the chapter. There was just a brief mention, unless i missed in my exhaustion.

    As quoted from the chapter:

    Its really 6 and 7 that would be good for a full length non-Dark Harry.

    I'm all for it. Anyone's welcome to steal my ideas. Steal my words completely, you better check with me. But my ideas and this Hufflepuff guide to life are free for the taking.

    The main part was I wanted Voldie's lovely little catch-phrase to actually be the Hufflepuff motto.

    I love nonjon's stories. It would be even better if the great nonjon himself wrote this... I like rule 8, that one's awesome! What's with rule one and two though? They are the same.

    Some things necessitate repitition.

    I wonder who is the Hufflepuff that is running Voldemort's show.

    That would make an awesome story. Harry is in 'puff, meets the legend manipulating Voldemort and takes his place by any means necassery.

    That's a great idea!

    It'd be hilarious.

    Athenia'a Challenges #1

    Since nonjon seems ok with it, I decided to make this a proper challenge:

    Challenge #1:

    Summary: Harry is sorted into Hufflepuff and learns that the 'puffs aren't what they seem.

    Rules:

    *The Hufflepuffs must follow nonjon's Hufflepuff manifesto.
    *In public, Harry must act as all Hufflepuff act. (No obviously powerful, obviously smart in the spotlight Harry)
    *Harry cannot join Voldemort's side even if you make him Dark/Evil
    *Harry should not be instant friends with Ron, Hermione, Ginny or Draco unless he is properly using them without there knowledge.


    Any takers?

    Brilliant! So will the Sorting Hat be in on the whole thing?

    I'm looking forward to the scene where the Hufflepuff Quidditch captain explains to Harry that he has to take a dive in order to avoid winning the Cup.

    "On the day of the match, you might feel a sting in the back of your head. That's pride messing with you. Forget pride! Pride only hurts a 'puff, it never helps..."

    Of course the Hat's in on it. It's a 'Puff. Runs the show without anyone realizing it.

    This would be great if someone wrote it. I would love to see the hufflepuff that was manipulating Dumbledore, the Ministry and Voldemort from the shadows and have harry learn from him or her and then take their place. :D

    Maybe the hat was actually Helga Hufflepuff's and she convinced everyone it was Gryffindors.

    Or maybe the hat is helga's horcrux and she is running everything for her own amusement or something.

    I would love to see a story were the hat is helga's horcrux and she is still
    alive manipulating things from the shadows. Maybe even living in the "Chamber of Hufflepuff" at hogwarts :D
