; and the cast iron cauldron

I think that was the goal. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670

I'm curious about the Featured Story of the Week. Good idea!

PAH, thanks for mentioning it, I may indeed need help with the reposting - I haven't got round to continuing it for a long time.

Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 Minerv10     that I asked him                 4 words b/c I used 6 before.

Okay, I'm a bit flummoxed, as I thought turning the sheet into a toilet seat was a misstep in the process of transfiguring it into something else. And I wasn't sure what to follow-up the cauldron with... but I've only got to use 4 words, so... hope this works!

After a few comments about the 2nd 'FSOTW', who'd like to select the next featured story?

Just a reminder, folks, to post the posts left for each student's report. Thanks! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

Julia, just let me know in a PM or an email. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670

to try again to produce

OK, I thought Neville should have transfigured a sheet into a cauldron, but (perhaps because of some unlucky associations Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818) he produced a toilet seat instead, and perhaps McGonagall gave him some more sheets (or turned the toilet seat back into one), and finally Neville did manage to turn the sheet into a cauldron (not necessarily in the same class). I thought "he got there in the end" meant that in the end he successfully turned a sheet into the required object (with persistent practice perhaps).

I'm not sure that my five words work now, so feel free to transfigure them into something better, but I wanted to clarify what I meant. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1242326132

Ohhhh, I see, Julia. The italicized 'that' is what threw me, I realize. I'll update the story, and see if anything needs to be transfigured. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

Okay, Verity. Looking forward to it!

especially with regard to plant transfiguration

I used toilet seat since it would be a bit embarrassing and funny. Cauldrons aren't funny unless they are leaky and thin bottomed. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2775603007

Remember the the wizard Barrufino (sp?) who said f instead of s and wound up with a buffalo on his chest? What was he supposed to be saying? We don't know! Some things are better left to the imagination.

Just another friendly reminder to post the 'posts left' update for each report. They are about 25 posts long. The updates help us stay on track, and not go overly long, and we usually try to get to the behavior paragraph about nowish/soonish. Thanks! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670

Mr Longbottom is generally attentive

I've had a bit of a crazy day but I finally had a chance to read the new featured story of the week. Great choice PAH! It really was a unique story, and must have one of the most unusual first five words of all our stories. It was a fun story, and all the Australian details really add depth and interest. Some of the phrasing was a little clumsy in places, but in other places, the writing was very eloquent. I loved the comedy of the splinching incident and the way this was used in the conclusion of the story was a nice touch. At one point, I thought we might have strayed into Narnia with the dragon wranglers Peter and Edmund! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1003735042

Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 Empty The 'Featured Story of the Week'

Post  Potteraholic Wed Sep 14, 2011 11:05 am

The 'Featured Story of the Week'

The 'Featured Story of the Week' is an idea that Verity Weasley first introduced here: "The Five Words archives are a wonderful record of our years on this forum. It's nice to look back and remember some of our earlier stories. One of my favourites remains the one with Luna and her father, but I also love the ones where we have given our creativity free rein, such as the special edition of the Daily Prophet. Maybe we could have a 'Featured Story of the Week' or something like that, where we take turns to choose a story and recommend it to our fellow Five Worders?"

She then later added to it here: "I was just thinking that we have a wonderful store of past stories, just sitting there in the archives now. I thought it could be fun if each week, one of us current posters chose a story from the archives as our featured story of the week, and recommended our fellow posters read it. We could link to it (PAH, you'd have to remind some of us how to do that! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1437562208 ) and make a few comments about why we chose it, then others could comment after they'd read it. It seems a shame to have all those great stories just sitting there feeling neglected, that's all."

Potteraholic and Mona expressed an interest in this idea, and as the current group of Five Worders is a cozy little group, it only takes one or two folks' feedback for an idea to be put into action! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670

The 'Featured Story of the Week' comments for each featured story will be collected and posted in a separate post, and included as a link in the Five Words Archives via an indexed list.

'Featured Story of the Week' Comments for Story #128, Volume XIII,
Potty Five Words: "The Daily Prophet, 10th March 2008"

This story was featured during the writing of Story #140. It was the 1st 'Featured Story of the Week'. All times listed are EST.

- Verity Weasley, Aug 29, 2011 12:14 am: I LOVE this story! I think it is one of the best examples of why Five Words is so much fun. Just the sheer versatility of our writing styles and genres encapsulated in this one 'story' is great - everything from features to advertisements. This was also our first attempt at horoscopes, which I think was a great success, and I love the very different tones of the Letters to the Editor. It also goes without saying (but I'll say it) that it all looks a hundred times better thanks to PAH's magnificent HTML skills.

- Potteraholic, Aug 29, 2011 7:51 am: Great choice for our first 'Featured Story of the Week'. Like you, as a reader, I loved the variety of the pieces in this 'story' and the humor. I loved the little nods to canon here and there. From a writing standpoint, I liked writing the shorter pieces best, since there was less we had to keep track of during the writing of those pieces. I remember that writing the 'Vampire' story was a bit Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1242326132 ing at times, but, like most Five Words stories, it worked out in the end. I think writing another issue of The Daily Prophet in our next volume is something we should consider. Now that I know how to do all that coding, I don't want to forget! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1003735042 (And looking for the images was fun, too.

- Verity Weasley, Sept 13, 2011 9:19 am: It really was a great story!

- Betelgeuse Black Sept 13, 2011 4:23 pm: I'd like to thank Verity for the referral to the FSOTW. I especially liked the portions about Mr. and Mrs. Weasley and their actions. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 3123246341

The formatting and pictures were very nice! (Thanks, PAH.)

- Potteraholic, Sept 13, 2011 5:19 pm: I had to re-read the DP to see where Mr. and Mrs. Weasley (Arthur and Molly) appeared in that issue, and then I got it... you meant Ron and Hermione! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1437562208

- Mona, Sept 15, 2011 12:14 am: Fun to write and a joy to read, and all greatly enhanced by PAH's wonderful formatting and illustrations. What more can I say? Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670

'Featured Story of the Week' Comments for Story #64, Volume VI,
Potty Five Words: "Dean and Seamus' Strange Aussie Excursion"

This story was featured during the writing of Story #140. It was the 2nd 'Featured Story of the Week'. All times listed are EST.

- Potteraholic, Sept 13, 2011 5:19 pm: I almost picked a "Minnie and Auggie adventure" because of our current report, but then thought of the first specifically 'buddy' (only 2 pals as opposed to the trio) stories we wrote here on Five Words. This story took 2 characters we know reasonably well and plopped them smack dab in the middle of a new location with new dangers and new characters. There was very little canon that had to be adhered to in the story, since it was set in Australia, except for the inclusion of an Australian dragon and some canon spells that were used. It was fast-paced, funny, entertaining, and there were liberal references to Australian culture that according to Verity, who's read the story before, were very accurate. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670 I loved how we hinted at Seamus' trouble with spells sometimes with his splinching mishap. This was a very fun story to participate in, since there were so very many opportunities to let our creativity have free rein/reign?, and at 1,325 words, proves that Five Words stories don't have to be long to be good.

- Verity Weasley, Sept 14 10:19 am: Great choice PAH! It really was a unique story, and must have one of the most unusual first five words of all our stories. It was a fun story, and all the Australian details really add depth and interest. Some of the phrasing was a little clumsy in places, but in other places, the writing was very eloquent. I loved the comedy of the splinching incident and the way this was used in the conclusion of the story was a nice touch. At one point, I thought we might have strayed into Narnia with the dragon wranglers Peter and Edmund! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1003735042

- Mona, Sept 15, 2011 12:14 am: I think I'm not a great fan of action stories, though it may have helped if I had taken part in the writing of it! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1437562208 I liked Azi's unusual opening words, and the end was very nice. And yes, it was a good story!

Maybe something in this section about Trevor, to make the report even more Neville-specific? Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 1003735042

Okay, re: the earlier sentence, where something may have needed to be transfigured Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508, I made 2 changes, which are hopefully self-explanatory, and keep us on track with the word count:


Mr. Longbottom got there in the end; and the cast iron cauldron that I asked him to try again to produce, eventually materialized. His written work is full of relevant, {interesting} information especially with regard to plant transfiguration...

I've posted the comments for our first 2 'FSOTW'. If you haven't posted yours yet, for either story, never fear! I can always edit in your comments after you post them! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2222139670 Looking forward to reading some more thoughts!

Verity, I believe the first 'Narnia' movie was released when that story was written, hence the names that I contributed. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818


EDIT: story update #4

EDIT #2: Changed 'in class' to 'during lessons'. Reason explained here.

Left it open in case someone wanted to add something perhaps preceded by a comma, if I may make a suggestion. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818

Thanks, Verity. 6 words it is! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

EDIT: 'in class' appears at both the start and end of the last sentence, so I am changing the first 'in class' (in my post) to 'during lessons' since I don't think Minnie McG would leave it like that, after a quick revision. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818

Cross-post! Took too long with my comments, but I like your words better, Verity. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

Thanks for your comments, Mona! Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508 You did splendidly, no worries. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 3735003615

As Verity said, 'Toohey's best' is an Australian beer. When that story was written, Columbine Fairy (remember her?) used to Five Word a lot. (She was an Aussie living in the UK at the time.) I wanted to make some reference to an Australian beer, to add more local color Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818, asked about two that I knew of (Carling and Foster's) and CF informed be that Toohey's was better. So Toohey's it was! I wish I had a way to contact CF and try to lure her back to Five Words... alas, earwax! She stopped Five Wording ages ago. Hope she's doing well!

Mona, what would be good choices if the story was set in India? I know of Kingfisher and a local brew called Arlem. What would you recommend? drunkenPotty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

a lively and enthusiastic student

"Lively" = teacher's code for hyperactive Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818

"Enthusiastic" = teacher's code for disruptive Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818

Singha is the beer of choice in Thailand. drunken Not that I'm a beer drinker. I wish I was - it's much cheaper than wine!

Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 Minerv10     . He has made solid progress                

lol! Verity, I didn't realize Dean was such a handful! Academically, I had the impression that Dean was a better-than-average student, but not a bookworm, or very ambitious... hence my words.

Singha... hmmm... by any chance is there a lion anywhere in the logo? In India, I think 'singh' means 'lion' in either Hindi or Punjabi. I wonder if it's got a similar meaning in Thai?

this year through a combination

LOL PAH. I kind of see Dean and Seamus as a kind of double act and I imagine they both get into a bit of mischief in class from time to time. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 2752390508

Yes, there is a very elaborate lion logo on Singha beer.

'luck' ... my attempt to refer to being Seamus' partner during lessons, given his track record with spell accuracy. Potty Game: Five Words (Vol. XV) - Page 29 464751818

Re: 'singha', language is so fascinating!

Okay, off to do a bit of bikeriding... I'm trying to get a bit more exercise into my routine this year! Let's see how it goes!


EDIT: Had Seamus down as 'Sean'... huh? LOL!
