Thanks to former Slytherin DHoH Opal Curare, I first met my best friend in 2013. She invited me to join her SQL team, The Avengers, co-captained by... Cody Lewis! (Apparently, because I was in Ravenclaw at the time, Cody was skeptical about asking me to join their team.) After a successful SQL season, Cody and I continued to work together when we were both invited to become part of the Quidditch Board.
Then, my sister was put on a project where she had to commute to Texas every week. My mom wanted to go visit one of her friends there and kept trying to convince me to go with her. For months I said no, saying I would have nothing to do there. Finally, I realized that Cody lives in Texas. He agreed to meet up with me, so we first met in person in 2014.
Since then, we've met other HOL'ers, including Amy Lupin, Shiloh Adlar, Hope Stark, and Will Lestrange. We've gone on adventures, including driving halfway across the country from Texas to New Jersey. And now I get to hang out with my best friend every single day!
