I wasn't expecting to have to start the ball rolling with these little low-key challenges so soon but I'm feeling suitably guilty about dragging my feet now we have *proper* fic writers in the fold so I thought I'd start now and if it doesn't work out until we have more people then we can all turn a blind eye. >_>;So...our prompt is Moving Staircases; whether that's in the physical sense of the path followed leading to a different destination or an emotional sense of the relationships changing between characters, or even if it's quite literally about those tricky shifting staircases in the Order of the Phoenix computer game, Moving Staircases is the theme for this week.Please make sure to tag your entry with the prompt and to put the number  at the beginning of the subject line...and most of all enjoy. P.S. thank you!!
