    As the thread title says, this is a challenge to write a story featuring Harry going to Beauxbatons instead of Hogwarts.

    The other details are up to you.

    Perhaps the Dursleys died and with the blood protections gone, Dumbledore moved Harry to France.

    Perhaps the Potters escaped Britain during the first war and Harry was raised in France.

    I have never seen a story featuring Harry going to that school and I have to see it.

    Rules:

    Harry must go to Beauxbatons for all 7 years or at least planning to, the story doesn't need to be that long.

    Not much of a challenge that. And if thats all you want: Thé à la grenouille by Moka-girl is on the review board. It isn't very good, but it takes place in Beauxbatons.

    To up the difficulty: The pairing isn't Harry/Fleur. In fact Harry distrust her deeply because of her powers.

    Truth is, anyone could write a story set in Beauxbatons. It wouldn't be that hard to come up with some basic worldbuilding, the use a name generator to populate the staff roster. Not much of a challenge, that.

    I challenge you to write a story, good sir :sherlock:

    Xandrel? Actually writing a story?

    The only person more incapable of actually writing a story is me.

    my problem with such an expansive story that will likely take 500k+ words, is that with all the planning and coming up with new plots that aren't just the same canon stuff, is that the author is just better off coming up with a completely new fictional story. When only 5% of the content is HP stuff we recognize, you might as well ditch that last 5% as well.

    Does Harry still need to be the Boy Who Lived? I've got some vague ideas...
