Monthly Challenge: (2006-09) The Magic Behind the Masque by Dream_wia_Dream
Summary:
Phoenix Rising and The Quidditch Pitch are proud to present:

Come one, come all to our Masquerade ball. We'll revel in music, scrumptious food, and the dance. A parade of masques will hide you from the maddening crowd--no spells are required, no potions allowed. Masquerade--Let the spectacle astound you.

The Quidditch Pitch and Phoenix Rising have partnered for a challenge. Challenge submissions will open on September 1st 2006 and run through September 30th 2006, with the winner being announced on October 7th 2006.
