Some of these might seem very vague but some sections are too hard to pinpoint to one event.

The main thing about HE back when I was a super active member was it was a great place for me to come online and RP with some of the most creative people I know. Over time I ventured outside of the RP section after LilyFlower got me more involved in the rest of the site and I had a lot of fun doing all of the challenges and the classes were great cause it made you feel like you were a hogwarts student. The main thing I liked about this site was no matter what house you were in everyone made you feel like you were apart of this huge weird family and I loved that part of the site the most. Everyone was so encouraging and some of the most thoughtful people you would meet.

Happiest moment on HE:
There were a lot of great moments on HE. I would say the best moments I had was in the RPG forums. That was what caught my attention when I joined, what I loved doing the most here, and what I do miss the most. I had a lot of great RP threads with Kaitlyn, she was the best RP'er in the Great Hall that I have met. We easily could develop interesting plots and we built off of each other so well. When we RP'ed together we would each write what seemed like a book and it wasn't a long post like you were ready for it to end, it was filled with so much information and so much was happening. I was sad to see her leave what with her getting busy with college and I had always hoped she would return.

Funniest Moment on HE:
I think anything involving Caro was hilarious. Especially the whole Fluffybear thing. Caro has to be the most hilarious person I have ever met on this site and I don't think anyone could take her title.

Saddiest Moment on HE:
I will probably guess many will think the same thing but I believe the saddest thing to happen on HE was hearing about the passing of Brunette/Holly. I don't believe I knew Holly as well as many others but I had grown to like her after chatting with her many nights in the chatty box. Every time I talked to her she always seemed so cheerful and she could always put a smile on my face. It was sad to hear of her passing.

Most treasured Moment:
I think my most treasured moment on here was meeting Yvonne. She was a great women who had cancer while she was pregnant. She had to wait out the 9 months until she could receive any treatment for her cancer. They only found out she had cancer because of her pregnancy and she would say her son was her mericle (I don't know how to spell this word sad). She was the same age as me and she was a fighter. She received her treatment after she gave birth to her son and the last time I spoke to her she said they were able to get rid of all the cancer. She was another member I did enjoy rp'ing with.

Over the years, HE has been a stable part of my life. It brought me into contact with MarieC, who I'd go on to later marry. In fact, I'm sitting down next to her in our apartment and that's all thanks to this amazing site. HE saw me through my teenage years and into my early twenties and has been a part of my life for almost half of it. Although I've had my ups and downs in activity, it's always been a place I can return to and love.

Happiest moment on HE
I think the happiest moment for me was when I made deputy head, which was just an incredible feeling to have such an important part in the site that has been such a huge part of my life.

Funniest moment on HE
I'm digging back in the JavaChat days when Jesse (Fated4Hp) tried to unstick himself from a chair using bleach. It still makes me chuckle just to think back on it.

Saddest moment on HE
Learning about Holly (Brunette) passing away was really heartbreaking. She was such an amazing person and the world truly lost someone special when she was taken from it so early. I hope that wherever she is, she's doing well.

Most treasured moment on HE
My most treasured moment... I don't know if I can pinpoint it to anything specific but I'll say that the first time I ever got an award from the other members. That idea that people knew me enough to vote for me and liked me, made me feel part of the site like nothing else ever had.

Other
I think we just need to mention the epic events that took place. Family Fortunes was one of my favorite events that ever taken place and it was great to be able to compete with people and earn points, but do it in a team was simply incredible. The Quadwizard Tornament, School's Out, How Well Do You Know, Music Bootcamp... just all the work that was put into those events that made them so fantastic can't be ignored.

- Happiest moment on HE
I used to LOVE RP'ing with everyone back when the site was more active. It was a huge creative outlet, and it was fun being able to create stories with other people and working with the different writing styles!

- Funniest moment on HE
I feel like there was a time when we were all obsessed with that Tiny Ball of Light remix and nobody would stop quoting it for a few months.

- Saddest moment on HE
I personally wasn't here for when Holly passed away, so I feel I can't rightfully say that for this part... So, I'd have to say one of the saddest moments on HE for me was when Amber was diagnosed. (Thank goodness you're doing better now)

- Most treasured moment on HE
I'd have to say that one of the best things about HE as a whole, are the people. It's weird to think about it, but we're like a little family who's never actually met (for the most part).

It wouldn't be a ten year anniversary if the original Head of Ravenclaw didn't pop their head in and say hi to all you lovely people!!  I'm ten years older, ten years wiser, and ten years--where the hell have you gone?!?!?  So let's jump right in, shall we? Hehe

- Happiest moment on HE

Quidditch.  Always Quidditch.  And of course all the times Ravenclaw triumph over those big bad Slytherins in anything.  Yes Raisty boy I'm lookin' at you when I say that one -winks-

Best moment though was when we won the quidditch cup two years in a row.  But then again another happy moment was when I was picked to be Head and brought in by Sharon.  Then again....if we add hindsight to the floor, it would be meeting my future husband James aka Castledown--yes yes I know another Ravenclaw beater, so sue me!  I have a type haha.  Only 87 more days until we're married and still sooooo much to plan!

- Funniest moment on HE

Funniest moment?  My memories unfortunately aren't what they used to be, but if I'm recalling correctly any joke played on Jessie Fated4Hp did have it's highlighting moments--ESPECIALLY when he talked tough about how he'd win everything and then lose miserably to us Ravens.  All talk....little game haha.

- Saddest moment on He

Holly was like the daughter and little sister I always wanted.  She was a ray of sunshine and the day I found out that she had passed on, I knew I would have to tell everyone else on the site about what happened.  I was close with her both her and her twin brother--she was part of quadruplets with two other sisters that didn't spend time on the site.  Holly had a beautiful soul and towards the end things hadn't gone well for her with the passing of their dad not too long before she passed on.  Despite all the hard times she had she always found a way to cheer me up and she always had a smile on her face.  That was something I always felt was really special and it's the reason why people gravitated to her.  She was a ray of positivity despite everything that had happened to her in her life.  I'm a better person now because I got to know her.  She was more than just another Ravenclaw, or a Keeper, or a member on the site.  She was someone you always wanted to be around and I'm lucky to have known her for the time that she was around.  If it wasn't for HE I wouldn't have met a lot of wonderful people.

- Most treasured moment on HE

Joining this site, because if I hadn't my life would be very different right now.  I wouldn't be marrying my best friend, I wouldn't have met such wonderful people, I wouldn't have had the experiences I experienced in my life.  My life is richer because one day I randomly decided to enter the chat of a site that must not be named and met Elfie, Swifty, Amy, Etta, Herby, Marie, and Wytchy, and I wouldn't have been convinced (though didn't really need much of an invitation for it hehe) to sign up in the beginning days of HE.  Elfie you created something very special here and if it wasn't for you I wouldn't be who I am right now.  Thank you for everything lovely! <3  

- Other (any memory that does not fall in the above categories but that you feel is worth mentioning)

All the HE weddings, the HE OWL, our original attempts at a podcast in the early days with us Heads, Harmony Forever AND RAVENCLAW BEING THE BEST HOUSE ON THIS SITE!!!!  THERE I SAID IT! HAHAHA

- Happiest moment on HE
Getting my own dorm with SlytherinPride7 and Gemma-Cullen-Muffin. I still have the drawing of the mascot I made. I am not sure how accurate it was, but at the time I felt like we were the cool kids of Slytherin and the best trio. Haha.

- Funniest moment on HE
I can't remember what led up to it, but the time in chat where it was decided Rai had a butterfly for a soul and it was captured in a jar.

- Saddest moment on HE
When Holly died. Even though I wasn't close to her, it was heartbreaking.

- Most treasured moment on HE
The first time I went on the chat here and met here and I got such a warm welcome. Especially from Nancy. She basically adopted me right on the spot.

- Other (any memory that does not fall in the above categories but that you feel is worth mentioning)
So I can't remember the name of it, but I first joined another forum site that was newer and less fleshed out than this one at the time and on there I saw an add Elfie posted for this site. I then ended up joining and fell in love instantly. <3

HE means so much to me. When I joined it all those years ago I didn't get what I had expected. I thought I would get to RPG all the Dramione I wanted for the rest of my life... which I did... but I also recieved a family. People I could count on to be there always.

- Happiest moment on HE
It's hard to pinpoint one happiest moment but my happiest memories of HE are from the chat rooms. I loved the family we built in the chats. I had some of the funnest times just joking around with Caroru, Just_Ginny, Amberg93, LilyFlower, Roman, Fated4HP, Emma, Raistlin and so many other people.. it was never ending the people you could meat on HE and each one of them were special and we all had the best thing in common: We LOVED Harry Potter!


- Funniest moment on HE
The Bleach. Jesse glued himself to a chair and tried using bleach to get "unstuck". This was referenced 100's of times to follow which made it even funnier.

- Saddest moment on HE
The saddest moments to me were the ones when people started leaving and not ever coming back. We had built such a tight nit family here and when people we started to really care about stopped coming around it was heartbreaking. (Jesse, Roman, Mike)

- Most treasured moment on HE
One night it was stormy and gross out and I couldn't sleep and I got on HE and no one was on but Caroru and we stayed up all night talking and playing HE games on the Games Galore Forum and I had so much fun. We didn't always get along all that great but that night when we were the only ones online we bonded and talked about a lot of things and I think that at the time I was a girl with brown hair wishing I was blonde hating the way I looked and uncomfortable in who I was. But we were the same age and we talked about our insecurities and I think that was the first time I really loved myself for who I was and not what I wanted to be. This may seem like a little moment to some but I think it really defined the woman I grew up to be. So this would definitely have to be my most treasured moment.

PostSubject: Re: CHALLENGE: HE Memories   Tue Mar 01 2016, 20:19

Oh boy, I'm starting to become an old lady because I'm having such a hard time thinking through memories of what has marked me on this site... Obviously, it has given me so many opportunities that I couldn't have expected out of an online community. Like Amber already mentioned, this site is where we first started talking. We grew from online acquaintances to real life best friends, to wives. We've been married almost four years now, and that wouldn't have happened if it hadn't been for HE.

HE also gave me a reason to travel, which I don't think I would have ever expected to board a plane all by myself at eighteen, from Montreal to London, so that I could go meet and spend time with great friends I'd made on this site. They still owe me a visit now, but I digress

Now let's see if I can put some memories together...

Happiest moment on HE
When we made the wedding website, with all the projects that we put together and the quilt, for Sharon and Mick. That was so early in the HE days, but I remember being really excited to present them with what we had done for them. Lisa's story was the best. Is that site still around? I need a link.

Funniest moment on HE
It's been mentioned before, but Jesse's bleach incident in the chatroom, 100%. I still have screencaps of it, and sometimes I'll just go and read through it all again. It was hilarious.

Saddest moment on HE
Holly's passing has been mentioned already, by people who knew her much better than I did. I actually really hardly knew her at all, but I can't really pass it over. I do also remember the passing of another member, in the very beginning of the HE days. Her name was Faith, and she was a really sweet girl, always cheerful, always greeting people like she was just so glad to be able to get a chance to talk to them that day.

Most treasured moment on HE
Honestly, just the feeling of being an online community, coming together from so many different places. We all have different opinions, we have different favorite and least favorite characters, different ships, different values we hold dear, but it never stopped us from having such a great time together. I miss the old HE days, the people I met through this site, some who have disappeared and some who I'm still lucky enough to be in contact with. It may seem like a silly thing to an outsider, but this was something really special.

Other
So, this never really officially became an HE thing, but one of my best memories was attempting to make a podcast with the old Head of Houses and Headmistress. We had such a hard time pulling ourselves together to actually make something, and the recording software was a mess, but we had great laughs and just an overall great time attempting it.
