(This is in no way associated with Harry Potter, Warner Bros, Scholastic Books, J.K. Rowling, The Hunger Games, Lionsgate, Suzanne Collins, or any other official affiliate of the aforementioned, so on and so forth.) With that out of the way, this is going to be a very different sort of story, so an explanation is in order before we plunge in. In 2011, a website called The Potter Games opened up on TheFandom.net, which took the premise of The Hunger Games (12 boys and 12 girls chosen to fight to the death in an arena at the whim of the tyrannical government) and put it in a Harry Potter setting, with HP characters and magic. Going to that site, you'll see the 24 "Tributes" right off and can choose one, to read their story and guide them to survival and victory. In all such stories, you read a scene, then you have two choices to make, A or B. The wrong choice will lead to the character's death, while the right choice prolongs their survival and continues their storyline. At the top of the page are two links, "The Rebellion" and "The Horcruxes," two parts of the same story. In the Rebellion scenario, instead of fighting each other to the death, the Hogwarts Tributes agree to band together against Voldemort and escape the Arena. "The Rebellion" details this escape, while the sequel "The Horcruxes" details their hunt for the six Horcruxes. After that, however, the storyline was more or less abandoned. This story, however, serves as the climax, part three in an originally planned trilogy, and the scope will be very large. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO READ THE PRIOR STUFF TO READ THIS ONE. I have included a summary below that should get you up to speed! I have contributed to The Potter Games in the past (I co-wrote Padma Patil's tribute path, as well as some of Rebellion too), and the plan is eventually to incorporate TPG: Endgame onto the site one day; I've already gotten approval from the editor, and we're currently working out the technicalities of it. But I also wanted to share the story here, where more in-depth discussion can take place as I lead you through seven quests, comprising twelve scenes each. Special mention should go here to @YodaKenobi who has graciously offered to help me beta this sprawling adventure. Far more than that, however, his incredibly intricate, character-driven and novel-length fanfic series (the latest of which you can find here, and I highly recommend reading all of it) has served as an invaluable inspiration for my own writing. You'll see similar patterns between our works, though I regret to say that I don't think my writing is nearly up to the quality of his! But his imprint on the work that follows is undeniable.

Probably tomorrow I'll post that trailer, and look at it carefully... For one of the 24 Tributes--not including Crabbe or Creevey (both MIA in "Rebellion"), Cedric (already reborn as a vampire, see below), or Harry--will die before the conclusion of Endgame. Most likely one of the Mentors too!
