So I'm bored as fuck. I took a quick poll in Discord #writing of a series of words to see what everyone's feel is. I already had a theme in mind: Summer before OOTP. The bread and butter of DLP. Now, its your turn to help me write the first chapter of the best DLP written fic ever. Your Trope Bank is as follows: Daphne, Apprentice Dumbledore, Curse Breaking, OOTP, Redeemed Dudley, and just to piss @Taure off, Magical Cores. Your start: It was a hot, uncomfortable night in July, and as the clock struck midnight, Harry whispered to himself. ‘Happy Birthday.’ Small Rule: The last time we did this people were posting over each other. When you post your snippet, quote the previous snippet. When we're done I'll merge in the most thumbed format. Does that seem fair? If not, I'm open to suggestions. Edit: Just because I only gave a sentence doesn't mean you all have to write just a sentence.
