Fred and George Family Prank Contest

style=”text-align: left; “>
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate those masters of mayhem
Fred and George Weasley. Over the years their mischief has been
limitless and almost no one has been spared. Remember when they set that
swamp up in the Hogwarts corridor and Filch had to shuttle students
across it by boat for days, or when they attacked Umbridge with a swarm
of blazing fireworks? Positively brilliant we say! But the pranks we
really want to know about are the ones they’ve committed against their
own family.

Your task this month is to interview any member of the Weasley family
and get them to recount the story of a previously unknown prank pulled
on them by Fred and George. Then come on back and share the story with
rest of us in 500 words or less. Try to answer the questions, when did
it happen, where did it happen, and what was the twin’s motivation
behind it. Make sure to keep your stories cannon correct with both time
and place. If they were at Hogwarts, what year was it? If they were at
home, was it durning the holiday break, or did it occur before they
started school or after they left?

Be creative and have fun.
