    This is kind of like the Character Castles, except it’s with characters from books and movies (Lord of the Rings, Wingfeather Saga, How To Train Your Dragon, etc.) plus your own characters. So, you can pick several characters (your own, from movies, from books) and make them fall into this castle where they meet each other, and maybe they have to fight off some enemy? Ten people is the limit, and for spoilers I would just do this:

    (Pretend the squiggle lines are words)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Spoiler Alert for people not past book No. So and so

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Spoiler Over

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That way people can skip over the spoiler and continue with the story. What do y’all think?

    Just two quick questions…

    a) Can I include Harry Potter characters?
    b) If the character’s world has a magic system, will it work the same in this castle?

    Ok three:

    Ten participants or ten characters as the limit?

    This is a great idea and sounds like it could get really interesting; I can’t wait to see where it goes!

    @winter_rose

    Yes! You can include Harry Potter characters (my sister is watching Chamber of Secrets right now actually!). Yes, a character’s magic system will work the same inside the castle, unless it’s evil magic. And ten participants, not ten characters.

    Is it all right with y’all if I use the Wingfeather Saga characters? They are my favorite books and I think it would be a lot of fun to try writing from their points of view. And @winter_rose, I assume you’re using the Harry Potter characters? If you are, it will be really fun to see how the Wingfeathers and the Harry Potter characters react to one another, as they are from almost completely different worlds. Hmm… Hagrid would probably get along really well with Leeli as she’s really good with dogs…

    Sure, that sounds great!

    Yeah, I was going back and forth between Harry Potter and Star War characters… but I think it’ll be HP for me.

    On second thought, maybe I’ll use a little bit of both Star Wars and Harry Potter. I can’t resist the temptation. 😉

    Maybe the characters should fight a Disney/ fairy tale villain. Like Maleficent.

    Or maybe, if I bring in a Star Wars character, a bunch of Stormtroopers or bounty hunters are after him/her, and the character gets help from the good characters, but the bad guys don’t like that, so there’s this whole battle-sequence thing. Just a thought.

    Yay! And Star Wars sounds cool. I’ve never watched a bunch of it, so I don’t know much about it, but if you want to use ’em, fine by me!

    Cool! Maybe the fairy-tale villain could be Macha, a person from Irish myth. I’m not sure she’s always a bad guy, but she is in the movie Song of the Sea. Anyway, I hope we get this started soon, because it’s gonna be a lot of fun.

    So, now that the only two people doing this (me and @winter_rose; @beth20 said she might join if more people joined in, and as of January 11, 2021, only one person other than me is here.) have got our characters sorted out, I thought we should start!

    Janner’s PoV

    Janner grinned as he raced Kalmar across the meadow back to the castle. It had been several months since the war and Anniera was looking beautiful. After the events of the Well, which nobody really talked about much, the Wingfeathers, Oskar, and Sara had returned to Anniera to find construction had already been started on the ruined Castle Rysen.

    “Hurry up slow-poke!” Kalmar called back to his brother. Kalmar was just as fast as ever, though he

    wasn’t as fast as he had been when he was a fang.

    Spoiler over

    As the two boys topped the rise, the tall Castle Rysen loomed in the distance. Kalmar looked back at his brother, blue eyes asking Janner if he was ready for the last stretch.

    I’ll try to write a section and get it up a little later today.

    I haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga, so could you maybe write a short description of your chosen characters’ personalities? It would helpful so I can write their responses accurately.

    Since you said you haven’t seen much Star Wars, and I haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga, I guess we’re pretty even 😂.

    Would you like a description of the Star Wars characters I’ve chosen?

    That would be very helpful. And you haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga! *Faints* Nobody has heard of it! (A few people have, but it’s not very popular, unfortunately.) *sighs*

    @kylie-wingfeather

    Its funny you say that because it seems like 95% of the people I’ve met on SE are obsessed with the Wingfeather Saga.

    I actually have the books, but I just recently got them and have like 57 other books I have to read before I can start anything new or even buy more books…

    Hermione’s PoV (plus Hagrid)

    Hermione sighed contentedly as she settled into Hagrid’s plush armchair, and opened a large, somewhat dusty tome entitled The Life Cycles of Werewolves, Vampires, and other Unfriendly Creatures by Allium Sativum Argenti. She heaved a pile of thick pages over and resumed reading at page 632. After about a minute Hagrid’s large, burly form clomped in from the snowstorm outside, followed closely behind by his enormous black Boarhound, Fang. The gamekeeper of Hogwarts set a pile of split logs beside the flickering hearth and tossed a few of the wood chunks in before stomping over to the tall, circular table of rough hewn wood, trailing icy snow from his boots.

    Hagrid gingerly picked up the faintly steaming teakettle and poured a cup.

    “Care for a cup o’ tea, ‘Ermione?” He asked, holding up a second cup in her direction.

    “Oh, yes please,” Hermione smiled. She held out her hands and gratefully accepted the warm cup. She sipped a bit and the returned to her reading. The fire crackled warmly in the hearth and Hagrid busied himself with some task or another.

    A few moments later Hermione reached again for her tea, but as she moved the cup near to her an uncanny dizziness swept over her The cup dropped to the floor, shattering into shards and spilling dark liquid upon the floor. Hermione looked up just in time to catch a glimpse of Hagrid’s confused face before everything blinked out.

    After a time no one could tell, and traveling an indiscernible distance, Hermione’s eyes opened and she stood in a large open chamber. A shuffling sounded beside her, and she jerked around frightfully, but was relieved to find only Hagrid and Fang, looking just about as lost as she.

    “Wha’ ‘appened?” Hagrid said, stumbling a bit and looking about the room strangely. “Was this yer doin’? Did ye cast some sort ‘er new spell?”

    “This isn’t my doing, whatever it is,” Hermione said, and spun once, getting a full view of the room. She huffed after her search turned out fruitless. “Perhaps someone is playing a joke on us. This could be one of George and Fred’s new tricks.” She gave the general direction of the ceiling a disgusted look. “It’s not funny, do you hear me?” she called out.

    “I don’ think this ere’s any kind o’ magic we’ve seen,” Hagrid said, stroking Fang’s head and looking around. “This place, it feels… differen’, some’ow.”

    “We’ll I don’t very much care how it feels, I just want to get out of it. I was at a very intriguing point in my book, and I’d very much like to get back to reading. Aha!” She spun about and rushed at the large green door behind Hagrid, dropping to her knees and peering out through the keyhole.

    Early afternoon sunlight streamed down from a bright blue sky over green meadows and a distant forest. Hermione thought she saw a pair of boys running toward her, but she wasn’t quite sure, and when she looked again they seemed to have vanished. Over faraway fields she caught sight of other people milling about, and even a few buildings stood on the crest of a hill.

    “There’s people out there, Hagrid,” Hermione said. “Maybe you’re right. And… it… it looks like summer out there.” She straightened out and studied the hard stone floor, index finger and thumb pressed against her chin in deep concentration.

    “This is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before,” she said, and then was silent for a moment. A wistful look came over her face and her eyes lost focus. “I agree, Hagrid. It does feel different here.”
