I was surfing for articles related to Harry Potter back in 2006 then through search engines I landed on RPG top sites, saw HO, registered my first student account and the rest is history.

I was bored and surfed on the net. I looked for a HP game where you could be sorted and play for your house and I found this. At first I was hesitant because I never Role played before. I tried it and now I'm hooked. Thanks google and all HO govs.

I can't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure it involved insomnia Googling sometime after watching one of the Harry Potter movies. :D

My sister Asahi told me about HO since some of her friends were already member of this site. She knew how Harry Potter addict I am, we both are actually so she showed me the site. I was the first one to register and got sorted to gryffindor. Then I thought, why not, right? <_< Now it's been one year! Woohoo!

I was reading Harry A History by Melissa? of Leaky Coldrun. I was on a diffrent site but the HP roleplaying wasn't really fun for me. When I read about this site I googled it and joined. I'm in love with the world everyone creates here so I jumped at the chance and released my inner Claw with Jane

I was looking in the directory on the invisionfree site for some active site to rp on, since the one I was on before died. this site was in the top ten for number of people, and even though I had never been really obcessed with harry potter and had never rp'd in a harry potter setting, I thought I would give it a try. and I fell in love.

I was browing google one day to look for some Harry Potter site, since I was brand new to role-playing. And I finally found a spot that I liked, and I've been adicted ever since.

I used to be on a RP site called Padshogwarts and I loved it so much! I left for the summer (which was summer break for the site as well, so it was okay). I had to leave for the whole summer because I was working at Cedar Point and we would work 10 hours or more a day, so I didn't have much free time and on top of that there was no wi-fi or computers in the dorms and so I couldn't get online that often.

Therefore I just decided to take a leave for the summer (I warned them, don't worry) and then after I got back the site was gone, so now it's months later and I really missed it, so I decided to look for a new Harry Potter RP site and this one looked like the most promising. I hope I'm right. :)

Looking for a place to release my inner Claw, seeing as almost everywhere else was either dead or inactive. I was going for a Gryff sorting but realized, some things are meant to be...

Always, and forever a proud Ravenclaw! :)

i was a super mod on RupertGrintNet and as I was moderating an ooc forum I saw a post someone made advertising this site. It was Ariana Proudian who taught me how to join here and introduced me to my first batch of friends- Starlite Night, Robin Gothica, Katy Fairiedust, Remy DeWyntr, Damiun Desove, Theo Frost, Angel, Parker!!! Ugh, I miss them since only a few even make appearances anymore :)

I actually made Roisin and got Hufflepuff and was angry at the time, so I tried registering a second account and got Slytherin, so I ditched that account and grudgingly took up Roisin and found it was the best house ever!! xD.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

Way back in April of '06 C did this whole campaign for house points on Myspace that I spied on some random music hunt. So I joined up, didn't get it as a total non rper, and left again. But a week or two later I came across another ad and came back. That night a cbox was in use and I ended up falling in love with a group of people that had found a place to laugh inside these unreal stone walls. The next two years were a rush of living in a world away from home. Here lately I've been alot busier in real life, but I couldn't imagine never coming back to play.
