Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XVIII)

Post  Potteraholic on Sat Jan 12, 2013 10:52 pm

Welcome to Potty Five Words, Volume XVIII! This is a game invented by the Potties, first played in October 2005 on the Harry Potter Lexicon FanFiction Forum on World Crossing.  It resided there for 5 years and 12 volumes/threads, then moved over to the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum in July 2010; some Forum members wondered if it could be played on the Main Forum, along with all the other wonderful Potty Games so many of us enjoyed. So, with Kip's approval... the move was made!

And then the whole Harry Potter Lexicon Forum moved, to our new home here on forumotion.com.  This is now the second Five Words thread here, and we have settled in quite nicely.

Now... back to the game!

The rules of this game are simple: place five words in your post that continue the story told through other members' five words. Strung together, the five words will make a much, much longer story. (You might add another much to that list if some people decide to go on a posting spree, which has been done in the past. )

If you're new to Five Words, or even if you've been playing since since the beginning, take a look at some suggestions Finn (the creator of the Five Words thread on the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum), made at the conclusion of Volume V.

We ask that you please post your five words in
bold format. This will help distinguish your addition to the story from other side comments you might make in your post, and help the story posters when they compile the story at the end. The way to do this is by:

— typing a in front of the text you want in bold then after it to unbold anything else you might post.

Enjoy! Smile

Thanks for starting the new thread, PAH!

Here's the first post of story #151:

Sirius patted the hippogriff's neck

I imagine Sirius riding Buckbeak as they are leaving Hogwarts. Where are they going? What adventures do they have?

"Well, sir, that was lucky!                   


You're welcome, Julia. Smile And I've always wondered what it was like for Sirius and Buckbeak after their Great Escape.

he had let down again

Remember Sirius didn't have happy thoughts when he was in Azkaban. He didn't kill the Potters, but he blamed himself for persuading them to use Pettigrew as secret keeper. In allowing Pettigrew to escape, he might feel like he has let Harry down again.

Before leaving Hogwarts, Sirius promised Harry that they would see each other again. Maybe he is thinking of that promise.
