Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XXI)

Post  Julia H. on Sat Apr 26, 2014 4:53 am

Welcome to Potty Five Words, Volume XXI! 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

I think she may not want to share this problem with all the Weasleys - Fabian and Gideon being in the Order had to be kept secret anyway.

Spoiler:
Perhaps they don't think Arthur could protect Molly in these dangerous times or ever support a family of his own or hope for a brilliant career ... or something else.

and prove himself worthy of

I don't know about you Julia, but I'm finding it tricky to write these scenes because we know so little about Molly's and Arthur's families. I guess it's about finding that balance so they come across as loving but a little overprotective, and not pure-blood snobs!

their daughter.

Molly, however, knew


...better?

Well, at least we know about Muriel.   The parents may well be just overprotective. After all, it's war, so it may be natural that they are reluctant to trust a young man not yet twenty and fresh out of school with their precious daughter. Anyway, perhaps we have written enough about the families.
Spoiler:
Molly will find a way to contact Arthur, and then it's only the two of them if we want so.
