That was two years go (around 2009 I think - summer). My character was still Jewel Rivera -Puff. I just stayed for like a month. I remembered Kitty T. too. I think she's also 1st year at that time but anyway that's the first time I did rping so I was really really confuse. I think that's why I left? I visit the site again like Sept. (same year) but then I can't log-in anymore (since I think I because of the hack? I also didn't think about recreating her because I'm too lazy I guess or something). I really came back though on first week of Dec. where I created Crystal. And that's the time I made an effort like seriously. lol. I was searching about Hogwarts I think at that time and I saw something hogwarts online so I click it and there you go.

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.
April was a big month for us 06'ers.. all thanks to c and those darn ads

I was told by the one and only Nerra Morgan about this. At first, I did not really consider this. She first told me about the link. hswcw.com. Actually, I forgot that link since I thought it's too complicated. Heh, but I remembered it in one random afternoon. I told Ying about it, and she got sorted. While me, well, in my first try, I failed. Silly me. But I tried it randomly -again- right after I came home from school. Hooray, I got sorted to Ravenclaw! Muhaha, I'm soooo glad!

I was looking through MLIA (My Life is Average)one night last April, and there was a story about a school called Hogwarts in Argentina. Being the weirdo I am, I decided to google it. After twelve pages of google, I found a place called Hogwarts online. I looked at it, then sorted Kayden in the office. I got Gryff, and i was happy, so I then went back to reading MLIA, not knowing I needed to register on the forum too (I was new to RP, lol)
About a month later, I was lookingaround, and I saw the forumlink, so I clicked on it and then was like "Oh..snap." So, I registered, and I was already sorted (which I now think was quite strange...)
...and then I read the books for the first time.
A year and about a billion characters later, here I am

I was (and currently am) working on a personal OOC project and was looking for information on Hogwarts (maps, pictures, etc.) to "create" Hogwarts in a 3D setting similar to Second Life (SL) where I will literally have to build everything from the castle to the lake to the forbidden forest and so on so forth. If any of you have a SL account and wanna help please friend me there (plz let me know your from HO in a message so I don't deny you) your help will be greatly appreciated.

It all started back in February of '09, I had just returned home from school and was really bored with life. I was a couch potato with nothing to do but watch Harry Potter movies and read the books. Anyways... one night, my RL cousin, Andrea Markston on the previous site, and I were chatting away on YIM. We started talking about how cool it'd be if there was a Virtual Hogwarts of some kind on the I-net, since we are both big HP fans. We started doing the good old Google search and found HO. It was listed right at top so we both became very curious. Both of us had no idea what RPing was at the time and our writing sucked at first. But with all the helpful people here at HO, we both felt at home and welcome, at least I did. The writing came natural and soon Velvet & HO were all I could talk about. I was obsessed with my virtual life, I had found my get away. I was around such wonderful people who shared the same interests as myself and wouldn't laugh at me for being... well... a Dork! I owe a lot to HO and being hired as a professor on this site took the cake. I just wish I could be as active as I was back then. Seeing all Vel's fellow classmates graduating is tough but hopefully this summer will be different, I'm gonna def. try that's for sure.

I found the site in 09, made my very first character, roleplayed for a while, forget all about it, went on to being a professional online gamer, found the site back in 2010, registered a new charrie, roleplay again for a while, started uni, forget all about that again until 4 months ago when I was moving house and found my harry potter book collection and go online with the thought of finding a roleplay site, remembered this one, registered a new charrie, and that's how Vera appeared in the face of HO.

I told a few of the teachers at my school about the site when we were hacked. They seemed interested, and I promised to show it to them when things go up and running again. But now it is summer, so I will wait until August, when we go back to school to show them the site. I did get my older son to join, but being a soldier and a single father of three, he has no time to RP. I am hoping to get him active when I visit.
Thank you to all the people who worked so hard to get this site back up and running over the several times we have been hacked. It is a safe place for me to come and have some fun and meet people from all over the world, and right in my own back yard.

By trying to prove to my friend what house I would be in. I looked up a lot of house quizzes, and HO's was one of them, I saved that one for last since it seemed, weird, and did the rest. I finally looked at HO, and I joined with Alex That was almost two years ago... .gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />
