This month we’re talking about Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and how Rowling approaches allegory in both.
So, the plan is to write a short fantasy story that hides an allegory in the most important part of the fiction. Right now it’s just an idea, but we’d love any opinions on how we should begin our approach. What do you think? Everything is welcome. We’ll build on this as the month progresses.

You could also submit to Creepypasta.com as well as the Creepypasta Wiki, which provide excellent platforms for this particular prompt.
