This year we will have lots of excitement in Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry as it's once again time for the Hogwarts Championship, how will Professor Neville Longbottom handle his first Championship as the Hogwarts' new headmaster?

Tell me who you are,
I'm sure you're some kind of superstar.
I was born under the Gemini sky, or rather we were. I'm sure you've heard plenty of tales of twins. Stories about the way they are linked to one another, unspoken bonds of understanding. Stories of one soul split between two entities, ties that can never be broken. But Finlay and I, we aren't like most twins; in fact we are not twins at all, not in the way most would think. We never shared a womb, only the alignment of the heavens. Two cousins, born on the same day, minutes apart from one another. False twins born under Gemini.
Growing up it was easy to mistake us for one another, even though Finlay was a boy his features were soft like mine; we looked so similar with rounded cheeks, bright blue eyes and wide smiles. Back then, we were one. Back then things were simpler. We were inseparable for the longest of times, back before I understood the world. The forest was out playground, we adventured in it together and look for new pets to bring home. But as we grew things changed though. We changed. I changed.
I was six when my mother explained that Finlay was not my twin, that it was just a fun little thing to call us. My mother didn't love Finlay like I did, I didn't know why though. My mother, Flora, had married Finlay's father's brother. My mother was born of pureblood, like my dad, but different. I don't think my mother married for love you see. The Buchanan's, well, we're not like most purebloods; at least not most of us. I've heard whispers about how people think of us as a lesser blooded family, I understand way though. Back then I didn't. I think my mother married my father, Dariell, because he wasn't like some of the more...eccentric Buchanan's. Instead of being involved with magical creatures or magical plants, but my father was an artist, he painted portraits like the ones you see in Hogwarts. A job my mother thought more respectable than creatures.
My mother was never too keen about how much time I spent with Finlay. I remember one night at dinner after she had indulged in the wine how she went on about how Finlay was bred out of filth and how I didn't need to be associated with him when I went to school. My mother thought Finlay would be an extra burden to my name, that he was going to drag me down into the mud and filth. I never told Finlay. He didn't need to know. It was after that my mother started to keep me home more and I saw Finlay less. Instead my time was spent watching my father paint or being tutored by my mother. But all I wanted was to be back in the forest with Finlay. Time has a funny way of changing things though.
Finlay was seven when he finally showed his signs of magic, it was years after me. My mother had often used the word squib when talking about Finlay. Maybe it would have been better for Finlay had he been a squib. After that my Aunt was never seen again, a fact my mother relished in, she said it was just a shame the muggle bitch had to spit out a filthy half-blood before departing off the family tree. It was when I realized my Aunt had left because of magic that I realized just how horrible muggles were.
When I turned eleven I got my letter to Hogwarts, Finlay was the first I told. I owled him early in the morning and awaited the news that he too had received his letter. We didn't feel as close as we had been but I often hoped that maybe we were like normal twins, that maybe our connection was deep and explainable. It was painful waiting for September to come around, I had high hopes for what school would bring. I would finally be able to be with Finlay all the time again. I assumed we would be sorted into the same house, that all our classes would be together and it would be like old times again. But that wasn't what happened.
I was called to the hat before Finlay, it whispered in my ear things I never knew about myself before it called out Slytherin. I was the first Buchanan in a long time to be placed in the house of green and silver, and Finlay did not join me. The first night was sleepless for me as I thought about what the hat told me. Was there really a greatness in me? Power just waiting to be unlocked? Was Slytherin really the house that would help me to unlock my potential? It spoke of how manipulative I was at such a young age. I was terrified, no flattered. I wanted to ask Finlay what the hat told him, but I never asked.
I assumed it was going to be hard to fit in with my peers, and in some ways it was. They whispered behind my back about my surname. The whispered about Finlay, about how he wasn't pure and so I surely wasn't either. At first I didn't mind, people had assumed that Finlay and I were actual twins. But time has a funny way of changing things. It eventually grew tiresome, I realized there was no shame in having pureblood, if anything it was something I needed to be more proud of. It was in my third year that I finally spoke out against them, I was pure and I wanted them to know it. I wish I could say I felt shameful over what I said, but I didn't. My mother had been so proud that I was finally trying to align myself with the right sort of people. I can't help but wonder if that was the right choice.
I had myself to look out for though. Well...and Finlay too. They could say what they wanted about others, but not Finlay. I know others think it he is a weakness to me, maybe he is. I can't help it though. He was the first person in my life that I cared about. He was the first person to understand me. I can never stop looking out for him and there is little I wouldn't do for Finlay, even if it meant lying to him. I have to protect him, we're twins, false twins born under Gemini.
Is anyone down to try and revitalize this place? Or move over to a new forum and start threading. It's been rough go but I have a working computer again, not one of the ability to fully customize a site at the moment but will very soon, but I am at least
I don't think I am able to manage a whole ass site at the moment, or any writing, cause I am now in Japan and running my own business to live here. But I would love to write with you all again someday when I am more settled~ (I am just not sure when)
I am not crazy about managing another proboards either. But if you guys want to do writing, you can still do it. Screw the templates and stuffs if you are lazy. This will always be a safe space or any of you who wants to write
Paige! I think we're happy sticking here so we don't abandon what we have. I think we're just going to be sticking around here and definitely even if you don't feel like writing come and chat when we're here! Miss you!
I miss you toooooooo!! And everyone here! This sounds good! Feel free to use the board, feel free to just share what you write here! Well, I am around, here and there. I will remember to drop by more often. ,3
