For the month of September, we have a brand new contest to bring you involving young Albus Severus and the legendary Hogwarts poltergeist, Peeves.  This contest has you put yourself into young Albus' shoes as he meets Peeves for the first time at Hogwarts, and create an original 500-word or less story about that experience.  As we saw in the first Harry Potter book, first year students are bound to have an interesting first encounter with the poltergeist.  This contest will give those interested the opportunity to compose what that first encounter may have been like for Harry's son.

Readers over the age of 13 and not involved in the judging process may submit one, original, 500 words or less, PG-13 appropriate entry to contests@the-leaky-cauldron.org before September 30, 2009 at 11:59 pm (EDT) with "Albus Meets Peeves" in the subject line of the e-mail.  The first place winner of this contest will receive 200 MyLeaky points along with a custom made wand from Wizard Wood Wands.

Complete information about this contest can be found on the Contest Page, while Lounge discussion of all of our contests is located via this link.

Good luck to all!

Think I’m gonna enter, it sounds fun to try, even though I most likely won’t win. Sounds like a fun short story anyway. :]

Interesting though I would think that Teddy Lupin meets Peeves would have been more appropriate seeing that Teddy would be a first year this year.
