    RON WEASLEY FROM NOWHERE.

    Hermione combos with “Confringo!

    Ron spontaneously combusts*. A flaming ball of pale skin and ginger hair tackles Arya to the ground. Both writhe in the flames.

    “Sorry Ron,” Hermione mutters under her breath.

    "Levicorpus!" Hermione looses another spell at her opponent.

    Arya, still flaming, is jerked into the air by her ankle. While she dangles there, Ron attacks her as if she was a punching bag.

    Flailing desperately, Arya almost accidentally stabs Ron in the chest. As Ron falls to the ground, Hermione runs forward concerned, taking her attention off Arya for one second - a second too long. Still suspended in the air, Arya drives Needle down deep into Hermione's back while she is bent over Ron. Hermione gags as she feels blood well up her throat.

    Arya (5)
    Herminone (4)

    Flailing her elbows behind her the young witch manages to get a lucky hit in and knocks Arya back, too attached to Needle to leave the blade in Herminone's back as she falls Arya withdraws her weapon. Taking advantage of the spare moment Herminone reaches into her pockets and reterives a small potion vial and applies to her injury. The blood in the wound colagulates, saving Herminone from bleeding to death.

    Herminone (4)

    Herminone turns to face Arya and casts another spell:

    "Accio Needle!"

    The rapier comes flying towards Hermione, but Arya won't let go. Herminone sidesteps just in time and Arya is dragged past her along the rough ground by the momentum of the spelled sword.

    (Wow! Could go either way today!)



    A white-bearded man in a leather sailor hat growls, "Grrm… how dare you try to kill Arya. If anyone's going to kill one of my characters, it's me!"

    Arya says, "My parents and brother*… that was your doing?" She swings Needle at the old man, knocking his silly hat into Hermione's face.

    "Ouch," says Hermione.

    As Hermione is distracted, Arya runs up and plunges Needle into her gut. Hermione falls, choking on liquid now, blood bubbling from her mouth. She claws at the ground, eyes squeezed shut in agony, but then finds the strength to draw herself up to a kneeling position. Even if she is horribly wounded, she won't give up... cause she's tough! XD

    This match was more hotly contested than I anticipated…

    Blood continues to spew from Hermione, she knows the match is all but lost. Her wand falls from her quivering hand. She notices Ron’s charred corpse in the corner of her vision, a tear strolls down her face.

    “Ron’s (completely voluntary) martyrdom won't be in vain!” she thunders before lunging at Arya from her knees.

    Hermione thrusts her hands at Arya’s neck and squeezes with rage. Arya drops her own weapon. Crunch, Hermione slams the bridge of Arya’s nose with her forehead. Her opponent drops to the ground whilst shielding her gushing nostrils.

    “Take that, b*tch.”

    Hermione grabs her bag and empties the contents onto Arya, who is still sprawled on the ground. Textbooks all of sizes pour out and bury Arya, including several monster books which attack her instinctively. Arya struggles to move, let alone breathe.

    "It's a pity," says Hermione. "I didn't get to read all of those."

    "Read this!" Arya throws a 1000+ page book at Hermione.

    "FINISH HER!!" a voice booms.

    Is that Martin? Gods, what a psycho!

    Baby!Hermione sees her wand and picks it up, babbling as she plays with it. Sparks fly from the end and ignite Arya's dress, as well as many of the books piled around and on top of her.

    "This has gone on long enough," Arya says. She remembers what her dance instructor told her. If death comes for you, tell it "Not today."

    Needle plunges into Hermione's belly. She twists it to make sure that the witch will die and not try to throw some other spell at her.

    Hermione begins to utter an incantation. Arya twists again. With that, Hermione murmurs to herself and slumps over, her body falling against Arya's shoulder.

    Bloody and beaten, Arya lets Needle slide from Hermione's gut. She wipes the blade across the sleeve of her blouse and kicks her wand away.

    One name off her list, Arya disappears back into the shadows, waiting for her next victim to come.

    Arya wins. FATALITY!

    I'd actually been lurking part of the day until she got down to 1 because I still had a vote left. I had to write this quickly because I knew someone would post soon. Victory for Team Arya! Yeah!

    Alas brave Hermione, she put up a good fight and took a lot of stabs before going down. Respect. XD

    Wow, I have to say, I don't think any other contest is going to match this one in how close it was. A well-fought battle, that's for sure.

    Ireth, the "Babality" was in case Phil posted before I did. I had two battles written at 11:55, posted just after midnight, then stealth edited whichever did not apply.

    So the downside (for pro-Hermione players), is Hermione didn't get the nonlethal finish. The upside is she wasn't in baby form when finished.

    A close match! It came down to one point and one minute!



    PS- Phil, I like how you played off her first move with that finish. And yeah, it can't get closer (unless it's one point, same-minute ninja.)

    I just awarded 52 rep points to Ogone for hosting MS's closest death-match ever.

    12:12 - Arya wins
    12:13 - Hermione would have won had Phil been a bit slower

    The insane amount of points comes from that "sheriff's badge" button (six-sided star). I have no idea how it works, exactly. Right now, I give 47 points. Maybe next time, 48? Well, anyway, my point is that I gave Ogone recognition because TUHNIP was already cool as a concept, but in execution, it worked out even better than anyone could have imagined.

    And best of all, Gandalf won't win!

    I've done several of these things on different websites. Almost every time either Gandalf wins or some Wheel of Time character does. I get it. They're strong.

    This one is particularly fun because it allows a sort of back and forth instead of just voting. We've done other versions of this before with user-generated characters as well. I'd love to see something like this with characters created by Mythic Scribes members down the line. That would probably take a lot longer to make and for people to participate, but it would be cool anyway.

    I don't see Arya winning the whole thing, but eliminating a Harry Potter character is a pretty big deal (when it comes to this tournament anyway). Go Team Arya!
