I read this before, I just didn't review it yet. But now it seems that you've started anew. Sorry, I didn't comment on it before, I'm not really sure why I didn't. Maybe I was strapped for time and didn't get a chance to and it slipped my mind afterward? Not sure, I don't really remember and it's not really all too relevant; anyway.

I absolutely adore the idea of Helena having siblings. I don't know why, but I do. It's never said in the canon if she had any or not, and I think it's assumed that she's an only child simply because it's never stated otherwise.

I also love your characterizations of both Rowena and Helena, and how they contrast so sharply with one another. She's certainly her mother's child, but she's sick of living in the confines of what her mother considers 'woman' or 'Ravenclaw'.

I really rather liked that because it makes their relationship seem much more realistic. Of course, I always got the impression that their relationship was a bit strained in the canon, so this just seems to align quite nicely from what we know of them.

I really like Helena, though. Usually, when I read through stories with Helena I have a tendency to loathe her because she's such a stuck-up little brat and seems to have a high horse for absolutely no reason and she's so slap worthy that it's not even funny.

However, in this story and first chapter alone you've seemed to humanize her, and I really like that. It seems a bit of a role reversal from the norm - Helena is humanized and Rowena seems remote and distant.

I also like the notion that Helena won't allow anyone to control her emotions, and why should she? For being so wise, Rowena certainly made a mistake in trying to control her so closely.

This is just mind blowing good. I absolutely adore it! The language, the wording, the conversations they're all so well done. That in addition to the no spelling or grammatical errors, it's just fantastic. I just want to squee all over the place in a happy puddle.

The plot is rather original, too. I've never seen anyone attempt a Godric/Helena story before so I'm a bit excited to see how this turns out.

Great job!
