We were in the same year. We both joined 2011. She was sorted into Ravenclaw and I into Hufflepuff. The early days are now a blur of memory but these words will forever remind me of her: IRC and Quidditch.
We were in the same year. We both joined 2011. She was sorted into Ravenclaw and I into Hufflepuff. The early days are now a blur of memory but these words will forever remind me of her: IRC and Quidditch. She got me to play in my first Summer Quidditch League (SQL). She got me into loving the game more, more than the usual games of the season.
She was always the better player. I remember we were double botting, that time when I had difficulty in that mode of game. She would answer the two questions first, while I was struggling with the one question. I also remembered she had her own bot, which I had the privilege to have met. To add, she loves the game in a manner that I never thought possible for myself. I remembered she would wake up at 3:00 in the morning to play a game. This is the difficulty of living on the eastern side of the world. I am one hour ahead of her yet she would always play the game with a smile and big dedication. She would encourage me every time we botted and played.
There was this one instance. If I remember correctly, the correct answer to my first hit in an official game was “the kitchen”. She was so happy and messages of congratulations were shared in a p2p channel. I made sure that I did the same in her moments of victory as well. After all, she was one of my few non-badger friends at that time. I will always be grateful to her as she also widened my circle of friends in those times.
She introduced me to Ally. They are good bunch of people, having their own IRC channels, where I had some fun stays. They would talk about Dr. Who, and the forever debate of A versus K. I would lean towards A, as it is the first letter of my real life name. But she would argue that K is the best and would call us K names. After all, her name is Kai, Kaiwa Alexandra. She was last seen in HOL in 2016 but I always hope she will be back. She will, I can tell.
Editor's note: Kaiwa was originally sorted into another house, but squibbed to Ravenclaw later.
