I can't believe it's over... Wonderful ending! I was sitting here, alone, sick, and you have no clue how great it was for me to find this fixed.

<< At that moment, Ginny and Hermione came down the stairs. Ron and Harry (who was trying to flatten his hair) gaped openly.
“I think what Ron and Harry here are trying to say is that you both look very nice,” Charlie said to Hermione and Ginny, winking at them.>>

*laughs* Although I would like to know how Percy got 'back together' with his family... You have intreagued me to no end with the Founders, and astounded me even more with your wonderful characterization. I hope to see your name on the Updates list again, and with that, Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus.

Did the wrong Chapter 12 get uploaded for some reason? Chapter 12 seems to be Alchemilla's The Test of Time chapter 14 ...

Anyhow, looking forward to the actual chapter 12 :)

I know about the mix up. There was an issue with the uploading I guess... hopefully the real chapter will be out soon. It's not anyone's fault.. it's just a mix up. It should be cleared soon. Come back and read it soon!

Reviewid: 66468Chapter: 11
Excellent chapter.

"No one expected her to last much longer without her friends"

Very Helga. All the Founders' deaths were fitting, but Helga's struck me the most because of that line.

Ron's finishing - and liking - the book was humorous. The entire chapter was tinged with an emptiness, so even when I smiled at that, it didn't overshadow the deaths.

As usual, wonderful. I loved it.

Reviewid: 65461Chapter: 5
Well, we still haven’t told my father, as he is busy working. I plan on telling him tomorrow. I don’t know what his reaction would be. I mean, he did marry my mother even after he knew what she was. I guess that means he will accept me. However, my mother says that he is a bit fearful of what she can do. But he talks to her and to me. He could’ve left but didn’t and I respect him for it. I am not used to writing this much and am rather hungry.

Ron starts thinking "You know he is practicly like me."

Reviewid: 65161Chapter: 10
OOH! Deaths of the Founders... I'm very interested in how you'll write those. This one was a little short, but good anyways.

<<“I need to thank her somehow. She deserves it!”>>

Could this possibly be a little foreshadowing of some R/H? I can't believe there's only 4 chapters left... It's been great... I can't wait for the next one!

Yay! I get to be the first for Chapter 10! Wow, tension is really rising nicely. Rowena near breakdown is very fitting, as is Godric's disappointment. Ohh, and next is the death of the Founders...I can't wait to see how you handle them. I love reading the account through the diary entries, it's just wonderful. I love this fic.

Reviewid: 64725Chapter: 9
Salazar... I like how he has developed into this person we hate. The titles of the chapters are very fitting. I was expecting, perhaps, an actual fire, with flames and such. But, we got this escalading argument; plus Rowena's outburst.

<<“Really? Well, I will no longer try to stop these fights. My priority is the students.”>>

This is exactly the type of thing I would expect from her. Another great chapter, and I sit here hoping the next one will come soon.

Already read this on FA, but I love this fic so i'll review it here, too. Interplay between Salazar and Godric is always great, and I love Godric being a Muggle born.

Reviewid: 61085Chapter: 3
I like your story a lot. I just wanted to point out a couple of things that struck me as strange in the Helga Hufflepuff chapter. I can't see Rowena saying that she feels like a loner. That is a modern phrase that seemed really out of place to me. Also, Ron knows Luna Lovegood (who is a Ravenclaw) better than he knows Cho Chang and Michael Corner. I just thought I'd point it out. Otherwise, the story is good. Really original!

Reviewer: Paige, The Muggle HermioneDate: 2003-11-28
Reviewid: 61079Chapter: 8
Amazing. I like how you have laid out the premises for the argument. I especially enjoyed Rowena's entry. Reading this has made me deter from my previous 'Gryffindor ROX' mind set. Of course, Gryffindor does ROX, but I'm beginning to lean towards Ravenclaw. Great WORX, I love it, but you already knew that, didn't you!

Paige, The Muggle Hermione

Reviewer: Kate LynnDate: 2003-11-28

Brilliant as always! I loved hearing about Helga from Rowena's POV.

"I knew Salazar was loony!"

LOL. Love Ron.

As usual, the pace is excellent. I love reading the founder's memories, and the present day commentary is often humorous and always excellent. I can't wait for more! 8-) Thanks so much for this.

You are really good at characterization! I can now tell who wrote the entry before I look at the name at the bottom of the page.

Helga is the more worried and delicate one. Rowena is the one who thinks things through. Salazar is th powerful one and Godric is everything else.

Keep up the good work!!!!!!! Can't wait to read more!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another fabulous chapter! I loved Helga's last line. It shows her dedication and loyalty to teaching and to her students. And I like the idea of a bookmark being an old letter from Hermione, that was a nice touch. The two are so sweetly intertwined.

As usual, great writing and pace. Thanks for it. 8-)

this is a great idea, and i haven't read any ofther fics like it. its nice to see all of the founders opinions. though there are a few things left out (ex: the house elves and what they do, supply lists and how the kids know about diagon alley and if it even exists yet, how and if the teachers learned all the subjects they're teaching) i am thoroughly enjoying it :)

please continue

I really, really liked this chapter. Ron's voice sounded very authentic.

The only quibble I have is that I'm not sure if the Hat was used back in the Founders' day--didn't it say in GoF that back then, the Founders would just pick their favorites themselves from all the kids?
