Extreme Harry Potter Crawl Year 1

You receive your Hogwarts letter by owl and are completely ecstatic to head out for your first year at Hogwarts. Sprint to 100 words to let out your excitement and energy.

180 words in 4 minutes and 39 seconds.

You arrive in Diagon Alley and your first stop is Gringotts, wizard bank. Write for ten minutes. The amount of words you write will determine how many Galleons are in your vault.

Purebloods

Less than 250 words: 1 Galleon

250-350 words: 2 Galleons

More than 350 words: 3 Galleons

I’m a pureblood so I need to get more than 350 words.
358 words, so I have 3 Galleons

You step into Ollivander’s wand shop. Roll a die and multiply your roll by 100. Sprint to that many words.

I rolled a 2 so I need to write 200 words
207 words in 5 minutes and 43 seconds. (Damn I am slower than I used to be)

Finally, you’re done shopping! But before you leave, you decide that you want to purchase a pet. Write for 15 minutes as you search for the perfect animal for you. Pick one: owl, cat, or toad.

After months of waiting, you’ve arrived on platform 9 ¾ and boarded the Hogwarts Express! Write to the nearest thousand as you settle into your seat and get ready for a long ride. If you need to write more than 500 words for this challenge and choose not to skip this round, take one Galleon.

Anything off the trolley, dear? Buy some sweets to help get you through the ride! Depending on your candy, find your challenge below!

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans: Participate in a Fifty Headed Hydra as you frantically try to get the taste of vomit out of your mouth.

Chocolate Frog: Write for five minutes as you chase down the frog.

Licorice Wand: Sprint to 150 words.

Pumpkin Pasties: Roll a die and multiply by 50. Write that many words.

You arrive at the castle and wait in the hall with the rest of the first years. You notice a boy with messy black hair and glasses talking with a redheaded boy, a girl with bushy hair whispering to the people around her, and a boy with pale… well, everything. Write for ten minutes as you attempt to socialize with the people around you.

Professor McGonagall escorts you and your peers into the Great Hall for the Sorting. After the Sorting Hat sings its song and several students walk up timidly, your name is called, and you sit yourself down on the stool, timid and worried about what is about to happen. McGonagall places the hat on your head, and you are sorted into your House. Pick from the four Houses- Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.

Slytherin: You’re an ambitious one, aren’t you? Write 750 words in 30 minutes!

The feast is delicious! Do the Three Digit Challenge as you eat at your House table and talk with those around you, as well as your House ghost. If you are in Hufflepuff, you know your chambers are near the kitchen so you save room for later and may skip this round for free .

You’ve settled into your dormitory quite quickly and nicely, and your first couple weeks of class go well. Write for an hour as you grow accustomed to your new classes and all of the magic you’re learning.

Purebloods: If you write 1,250 words within the hour, take 2 Galleons.

On your way to Potions, the messy haired boy who you now know is Harry Potter stops and asks you if you know where Professor Binns’ classroom is. Write 200 words in 10 minutes as you try to remember where his classroom is.

If you succeed: Harry hurries to Binns’ classroom and gives you a Galleon as a thank you for your help.

If you fail: You spend so much time trying to help Harry that you are both late to your next class. Write another 200 words as you apologise to Snape and try not to lose any points for your House.

If you are in Slytherin, Snape likes you and lets you skip this round for free.

You get locked out of your common room and Mrs. Norris finds you! You run with Harry, Ron, and Hermione to the third door corridor, and you find a giant three-headed dog! After making it back to your dormitory safely, roll a die, multiply your roll by 100, and write that many words as you try to calm down.

Troll! In the dungeon! You go with Harry and Ron to find Hermione and end up fighting the troll with them. Sprint to 250 words , and try not to get yourself killed. If you are in Gryffindor, you fight the troll bravely and may skip this round for free.

You go down to Hagrid’s hut to have tea with him. When you try his treacle fudge, your teeth get stuck together! Write for fifteen minutes as Hagrid tries to help and Madam Pomfrey magically loosens the cement-like effect the fudge had on your mouth.

Months pass, and it’s Christmas morning! You receive 3 Galleons from your parents, as well as a challenge from the Weasley twins. Write 1000 words in under an hour.

If you succeed: they give you a Galleon.

If you fail: they hit you with snowballs until you’re buried under heavy amounts of snow and make you write 250 more words .

During the Gryffindor vs Slytherin Quidditch game, you get incredibly excited. Roll a die. If even, you’re cheering for Gryffindor; if odd, you’re cheering for Slytherin. Word war for fifteen minutes with someone cheering for the opposite team. If you beat them, you win your bet, and you take 2 of their Galleons. But be careful- if you lose, you give them 2 of your Galleons. A bet’s a bet.

Harry tells you that he suspects that Snape is going after the Philosopher’s Stone and you decide to go with the trio to try to get to the Stone before Snape does. But before you can even go down the trapdoor, you need to make it past Fluffy. Write for ten minutes as you lull him to sleep sneak through the door. If you are in Ravenclaw, you know exactly how to keep Fluffy asleep and may skip this round for free.

Oh no- you and your friends are trapped in a patch of Devil’s Snare! Hermione tells you that you need to write 300 words in five minutes in order to safely escape.

If you succeed: You make it out of the deadly plant without a scratch and even spot a Galleon on the ground. What luck!

If you fail: Hermione has to set the plant on fire to get you out alive. She thinks very poorly of your skills now, so write another 300 words to impress her.

Harry catches a flying key and opens a large wooden door. Inside the next room is a giant wizard chess set. You and your friends need to replace some of the pieces and play the game. Ron takes the place of a knight, Harry becomes a bishop, and Hermione takes over for a rook. Pick a chess piece and complete the challenge below! Keep in mind that you are not allowed to skip this round even if you have enough Galleons to do so.

Pawn: You know you won’t be of much use to the game and think it would be wisest to be taken out early. Complete a Fifty Headed Hydra and take a fifteen minute writing break to recover from your injuries.

Rook: You take the place of the other rook and spend the game running across the board, strategically taking out important pieces of the other side’s team. Sprint to 200 and take a five minute writing break once the game is won.

Bishop: You take the place of the other bishop and sneakily take out pawns on the other team. Write for 20 minutes and take a five minute writing break once the game is won.

Knight: You take the place of the other knight and become the wild card of the match. Write 300 words in 15 minutes until you’re taken out by one of the other team’s rooks. Take a fifteen minute writing break to recover from your injuries.

Harry and Hermione move ahead into the next room when you stay with Ron. When Hermione comes back, sprint to 500 words as you run to find Dumbledore and explain the situation to him.

The word gets out that Professor Quirrell is the one who wanted the stone, not Snape! Rumours also spread of your bravery in helping Harry, Ron, and Hermione as you four went through the challenges the professors set to protect the stone. Dumbledore awards you fifty points for your courage. Write for five minutes as your peers congratulate and admire you.

Summer vacation is here! Take an hour long writing break- you deserve it!

#178

You are Alice, sitting on the riverbank, listening to your sister read from a book about William I, whose reign began in 1066 AD. You grow bored, so write 1066 words as quickly as you can.

1093

You spot the White Rabbit, who is very late for an important date. His watch says 5 o’clock so set your stopwatch for 5 minutes, and write as much as you can.

172

You chase the White Rabbit, following him into a rabbit hole, where you fall down, down, down. Write to the nearest thousand as you fall down the rabbit hole.

246

When you get to the bottom, you see the White Rabbit race through a tiny door, which you can’t fit through. The doorknob tells you to drink from a little bottle marked “DRINK ME.” After you drink it, you turn so tiny that you can’t reach the key to the door, which is on a normal sized table. Write 400 words to find a solution.

535

A cookie marked “EAT ME” appears. You eat it and grow so big that you fill the entire room. Time for a big sprint of 30 minutes.

1115

After all that, you are crying so hard your tears fill the room – though the doorknob tells you to drink again from the bottle. You fall into the bottle and sail away in a river of your own tears through the doorknob’s keyhole and into Wonderland. You see the Dodo, running the caucus race, where inhabitants of Wonderland race until they are dry. Race to the nearest hundred words.

Have to write 28 words for that.
Did 56

Tweedledum and Tweedledee block your path to tell you the story of The Walrus and the Carpenter, The time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things – of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kiiiiings. Pick one of those things.

This is random, but cabbages

For shoes, sprint to the nearest thousand.

For ships, think of your favorite fandom ship, add up the number of letters in the characters’ first names (for example Bella and Edward is 11, while Harry and Hermione is also 13) and multiply that number by 50. Write that many words.

For sealing wax, let the dice seal your fate – roll a standard six-sided die. Multiply that number by 100, and write that many words.

For cabbages, write 250 words

For kings, try the Fifty Headed Hydra .

Cabbages, so aiming for 250.
Wrote 292

You come to the White Rabbits house, where you eat another one of those “EAT ME” cookies, growing so big that you fill the rabbit’s whole house. Time for another big 30 minute sprint while they smoke the monster out.

I had planned on doing 30 minutes, but I got interrupted halfway in, so am now doing two blocks of fifteen minutes.
15: 631 words
15: 717

You eat a carrot and shrink down to the size of an insect – do a tiny, 5 minute sprint.

223

You meet a garden of enchanted flowers, who sing the song Golden Afternoon. Sprint for ten minutes while you convince the flowers that you aren’t a weed.

436

“Wooo…R…U?” The hookah smoking caterpillar asks. He gives you a bit of mushroom, which returns you to your usual size. Sprint to the nearest thousand words to return to an even number.

The goal is 203.
Did 210

You meet the Cheshire Cat, who directs you to the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse at their Mad Tea Party. In honor of the price tag still affixed to the Mad Hatters chapeau (10/6) sprint for 10 minutes, then sprint for 6.

10: 370
6: 191

A Very Merry Unbirthday to YOU! Take your birth month (1 for January, 2 for February, etc.) and multiply that by 100. Write that many words.

Okay, May means 500 words. That’s doable.
Got 513

You get lost in the Tulgey Wood. Don’t step on the Mome Raths – try to write 100 words without a typo.

191

The Cheshire Cat appears again, directing you to the hedge maze where the Queen of Hearts wants you to play croquet with her. 500 words or off with your head!

619

Total count so far is 7610

The Queen of Hearts puts you on trial – a five minute sprint while you think up a good case should do the trick.

203

You take a bite of the caterpillar’s mushroom, growing to a giant size so you can yell at the Queen of Hearts. Roll a six-sided die, multiply that number by 100 and write that many words.

I got 4… 400 it is.
455

After you shrink back down to your usual size, the Queen of Hearts sentences you to death. You flee, pursued by many of the inhabitants of Wonderland, all the way back to the door knob. Sprint for 10 minutes as you flee.

472

The doorknob convinces you that it was all a dream, and you wake up again on the riverbank, with your sister. You and your sister happily walk home for tea. Take a much deserved tea break from writing!

Total word count with this crawl: 8740


#179

Alright, I’ve got some time this morning to get some writing done, so we will see how far I can get.

Small Goal: 1400

I freaking deleted all of the changes accidentally and now I’ve lost all the links I updated OMFG
