This is such a great chapter. I loved that the focus of this was on the Founders and that messy triangle. it made me really dislike Rowena though because I feel like she doesn't deserve either of them. I can't imagine this turning out with a happy ending for any of them as their love has either been half hearted, torn, or just a dead heart for centuries. That can't be good for anyone. Also, in this whole thing, i found myself sad for Helga of all people. Poor woman, she had no one. Anyway, that's a side thing with nothing to do with this other than i send love to Helga. And Salzaar because his heart was dead for centuries and that made me sad. I think that was my favourite line of this whole thing. It just hit me really hard and i wanted to squish life back into him.

Your narrative here is so lovely and different then your other chapters too but it fits because it is of the Founders and it fits their persona's and their time period. But the fact that you can go from the chapter before this (which was excellent by the way and i love Regulus to pieces, fair warning, i'm going to try and steal him one of these days and put him in my pocket ;p) and then wrote this kind of chapter where it's melancholic, the tone is different, heck, you even dipped into second person too is fantastic! You should be very proud of how you wielded this chapter because the imagery, description was phenomenal. Everything just read like a breeze and everything seem to just add to the atmosphere you were creating! Very good work!

What is going to happen to Crabbe? Ah he has to be in the last because i can't bear to see any of the other characters kick the bucket for reals!! NOOO!!! I hope he's brighter than he looks and is and that you sprinkle smart, witty dust on him somehow. Although... he is a Slytherin... he's cunning then... somewhere.

I can't believe the end! Salzaar being vulnerable??!! What is this world coming to? I like it though and it makes their whole story so heartbreaking although i do feel sad for Godric up on the bell tower with all his loathing and jealousy. I hope he goes and runs to Helga and they live happily ever after... :D

I kept having Snape/Lily/James flashes through this and it has some scary parallels and same wording dealio's going on but i'm hoping that their story doesn't end up like this at all. I have a weird spider sense going on inside my stomach but i feel like that triangle if you call it that didn't tear Lily up nearly like it did Rowena. I think (or hope anyway) that Lily actually made the choice she wanted.

Anyway, great chapter, again! *scurries off to read more*

Author's Response: Since I've been mentioning the ordeal between Salazar and Rowena since the very beginning, I thought it was only fair to readers to flash back to the past for a minute and shine light on what they were like when they were alive. And the result is unsatisfying because as it turns out, Rowena was always torn between the two men. She was never sold on one or the other. Together they would have made the perfect man for her, and individually she couldn't choose. It's not fair to any of the people involved. Poor Helga! I neglected her so much in this story. She's just sitting on the sidelines in her tree house, not involved in any triangles. Maybe that's a good thing. XD

The atmosphere really surprised me! My favorite thing about writing Run was that I could change the tone depending on which characters I was writing, and the time period and mood. The duels are different from the melancholic bits, which are different from the lighter, humorous bits, which are different from bits about the founders. I loved being able to set the mood of this chapter with imagery, and being a fly on the wall that witnessed Rowena hesitating about being seen in public with Salazar.

Bahaha, Godric and Helga! Now there's a thought!

I'm quite pleased that you noticed all the James/Lily/Severus and Godric/Rowena/Salazar parallels. The difference between them is how Lily handles her situation vs. how Rowena handles it. And Rowena handled it very poorly, in my opinion.

Thank you for reading and reviewing! Your feedback is so awesome and warming to read. :)
