These are all fantastic!! They really capture Lockhart’s narcissistic spirit, and I love how three of them mention lilac. Great job to all!

Congrats to all writers! Everyone captured Lockheart’s ridiculous egotism, and Malfoy Diva acheived it in the most clever of ways. I laughed out loud at her last few paragraphs! Well done.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! I am so excited, I have been trying to get my hands on the wand prize for two years! As for my competitors you guys were GREAT! Your entries made me laugh so hard I too loved the lilac furred yeti, as well as the yeti that got zapped with a head cold (genius), and mgouda’s line about “valued as a nightime snack” was priceless. Great job everyone!!!
