over the last few months, i hosted the friends don't challenge here on the forums. as someone who struggles to write the friends to lovers trope but loves reading it, it seemed like the best way to read some fantastic fics. and boy, did you guys deliver!
i had three fantastic entries, all of which captured the tension, the complications, and the pure pining of this beloved trope:

so among many of the conversations @clevernotbrilliant and i have over our favorite idiots (aka the cast of the 100 with our original characters, emma rhodes, james rhodes, and perri laughlin), a recent discussion has had us assign them to taylor swift albums. because we love taylor, of course, and what else is there to do during the week? ...actually write our fics? pffft, as if
make of this what you will, there is some sound logic behind a few but mostly it's just vibes

over the course of the summer, i hosted my fifth challenge on the forums. this time, there were only two requirements: that the main character and/or relationship wasn't straight (falling anywhere on the lgbtqia+ spectrum) and that there was a happy ending. i received three (3) delightful entries, and just because there were only a few to choose from, it didn't make judging any easier. if you need a little pick-me-up, i highly recommend taking a look at these entr

in the spring, i hosted my fourth challenge here at fft with a very simple directive. i asked you to pick an angsty taylor swift song and write a fic based off of it. the original intent of the challenge was for the fics to have a happy ending, but since that made things difficult, i scaled back and let you just write whatever you want. with whatever kind of ending you want. the biggest thing about the challenge was that i wanted you to make me feel things, yell at yo

i hosted my third challenge on hpft this year, with a trope that’s near and dear to my heart: sticking two (or more) characters in an enclosed space for an extended period of time. i had a blast reading the entries for this, and had a really hard time judging the winners. truthfully, there was a time when i thought y’all could just tie, but that seemed to defeat the purpose of the challenge.
anyway, if you’re not familiar with the challenge, here’s a
i'm by all means no expert on taylor swift. truthfully, i think we all can agree that that crown belongs to @down-in-flames. but i do love taylor swift, although i went through a phase of trying to act like i was too cool (spoiler: i was never too cool) to like her. this community has allowed me to embrace my love for taylor and appreciate her for the artist she is. and i've loved her since college -- not since my dad introduced me to her, as he likes to claim, but from car rides to and from cam

A few months ago here on HPFT, I hosted my second challenge, and I'm here today to finally share the results. I had a lot of fun reading these entries, so first I'd like to give a big thank you to anyone who submitted one or attempted to submit one.
The challenge was as follows: write a story about two characters almost kissing. It was as simple -- or as complicated -- as that. For this challenge in particular, I was looking at how you guys crafted character t

So if you’ve been hanging out on the forums at all for the last few months, you may have noticed that I hosted my very first challenge here at HPFT, called the “Say Goodbye Challenge”, and I’m here today to present the results!
In case you’re not familiar with the challenge, here’s a quick recap of the details:
The challenge: In less than 5,000 words, I want you to write me a one-shot where your main character has to say goodbye. It doesn't necessa
