Your title drew me in, and the wonderfulness of Helga's character kept me intrigued. I really enjoyed this accounting of the early history of Hogwarts. Its gradual start and modest beginnings seem very realistic, yet were something that hadn't really occurred to me before. I also like how you demonstrated each of the founders' personalities through their actions and other details. Great job!

Oh, I just love this. It's one of the most realistic visions of the Founding of Hogwarts that I've read - starting out small, using word of mouth, contacting friends when in need of more teachers. And the split between Godric and Salazar is excellent - so often big fights start out small!

Good story. I especially like how you considered the realities of life in tenth-century Britain. I'm not too sure about Slytherin being an associate of Ravenclaw's, as he and Gryffindor are always described as quite close; I would think they knew each other previously. But an interesting tale nonetheless.

[Not even the Romans succeeded in creating an organized system of education. Lord knows they were efficient in everything else!”]

Ha! Funny! I suppose it's true, or we would have heard of an Italian school at some point.

[“Knowledge for its own sake is enough for me.”]

That seems to fit Rowena well.

I liked Salazar's brief appearance--especially him talking to snakes and creeping Helga out.

[While attempting to create a spell to find her missing daughter, Rowena had accidentally discovered a way to locate magical babies.]

Cool explanation of the magical quill.

[History, she reflected, was the end result of time and faulty memory.]

Great line. Very true. And I loved the last line of the story.

I wish we could have seen a little of Salazar building his chamber of Secrets, but overall I just adored this story! Very true to canon but completely original!

That was well written. I loved the way you made Helga the heroine. From the way she's described in the books with her sweet nature and her tolerance, she was always my favorite Founder. You captured that spirit beautifully. Good job.

Quite nicely done. I wasn't sure what to expect, but what I read seemed to be well-crafted.
