Yay, the Helga chapter! As a Puff, I have a soft spot for her, so I was looking forward to this one :)

I think Helga's story is so interesting (and a little sad), and it serves as a great reminder of the attitude towards witches during these times. At first I did find it a little odd that Helga wasn't killed when she was discovered, but the explanation that came later helped a lot.

As far as characterization goes, Helga seems very supportive and compassionate, just like I would imagine her. She seems like a great friend for Rowena because their personalities compliment each other. Helga is certainly opinionated, but she isn't quite as bold about it as Rowena. Those aspects of Helga's character showed in her conversation with Rowena about marriage: she's encouraging, but isn't afraid to make her opinions known. I really enjoyed her :)

One little issue I noticed: when Helga says "dumb broads." I feel like that phrase is a little too modern for Founders era, and there could be some other way to describe the typical women of that time. I think changing that one word would add a lot to the historical atmosphere you're creating :)

Whoop, Godric next! I'm enjoying these separate looks at the characters, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together.

Author's Response: I'm glad you were enjoying it. I will look into phrasing that line better, it does seem modern now that you point it out. I think I know people who actually still say that... Thanks for dropping a review.
