The 2019 Winter Biannual Bibliothon was in full swing, but you were craving just a bit more adventure. As you settle in to pick up your current read, Ginny Weasley barges into your room, surprising you. You’re told that Ginny’s land is in trouble and you’re needed to aid in finding The Mortal Cup, the only item that will restore peace and that you’re the only person that can help.
Ecstatic to finally be the chosen one, you agree to help Ginny on this quest! As you begin to travel to their land, you find out that others have tried and failed to retrieve this magical artifact and that you are the last hope. You also find out that because no one has succeeded in this quest, no one knows what you’re up against. There are rumors that you need to defeat 14, 000 Hippogriffs.
Excited, yet nervous, you and Ginny locate the wise elven protector of the land to learn as much as you can about this artifact and how to retrieve it. The elf informs you the artifact is located in the deepest part of Thule, to your dismay. You and Ginny venture for 3, 000 years to make it to this new land.
Along your journey, you spent your free hours training to master taking a bath, hoping this new skill will give you an advantage against your unknown foe. Shortly after arriving at this dangerous land, you finally are face to face with your nemesis, Voldemort.
Though you’ve been training, coming face to face with your foe begins to strike you with fear. Your companion encourages you to be strong and reminds you that you’ve been preparing for this. When you go to use your new skill, you learn that Voldemort is a master. Nervous, you use the only maneuver you have left. You challenge them to Exploding Snap. Taken aback by this tactic, they hesitate before reluctantly accepting your challenge. Filled with new confidence, you quickly defeat them!
Begrudgingly, Voldemort awards you the magical artifact, vowing revenge.
You and Ginny return to their home land, where you are greeted with cheers and applause. You’re thanked repeatedly for returning the artifact and saving the land. Ginny even shows their gratitude by giving you a Christmas card.
The next thing you know, you are back home with your book in hand. For a moment, you think you made up the whole thing, but then you see the glint of the magical artifact out of the corner of your eye. When you look over, nothing is there, yet you know your adventure was real. With a smile growing, your turn back to your book, already ready for another adventure.
and that’s all! This was so much fun, so I hope you play along too! Happy reading!
