I wanted her to tell him so bad!!! You, naughty author, got me all knot tied and now I have to wait to see how he reacts!!

Okay, onto actually reviewing ;).

Honestly, this didn't feel like it strayed from the plot at all really. This is a story about Helga and Salazar, but to do their story justice you have to give us everything. The school, all of the founders, the relationships between all of them.. or it wouldn't feel complete. And I think this chapter did an awesome job at helping show us more about who they are as people. I loved the first section, not only was it just heart warning but it showed us that Rowena must've loved Helena... because look how desperately she pines for a child at this point.

I also think it helped us see Helga in a different light. A less optimistic, more serious kind of feeling.

I was surprised that Godric came up with the hat idea. I'd always assumed it would have been a Salazar thing, and that Godric would have been on Helga's side for unity.

I'm really curious if Helga's admission as well as Godric's (if they ever do it!) will be the ending of the founders four, or if they'll work through it and it'll be something else that tears them apart.

Helga's thoughts about separating the houses make so much sense. I never understood why they would start students out, so young, with so much segregation. Maybe if they all got along the way Ravenclaw's and Gryffindor's seem to, it wouldn't be so bad, but when houses like Gryffindor an Slytherin truly dislike each other, and Slytherin's are really made to feel like the evil of the houses.. it just never seemed healthy. So I really like that you had Helga's thoughts about that.

I think you had a good amount of detail in this chapter. It read smoothly without my flow ever being interrupted, and I loved the look into the more personal side of Hogwarts life.

Looking forward to chapter 7!

Author's Response: Haha I know, that was super rude of me, right? :) But I hope you're willing to read on and find out!

For me this chapter was all about character development, and showing sides to the characters that people might not expect. Like Rowena's longing for a family, or Godric's opinion on keeping the house system going. And Helga is weighted down by the pressure she's under, and I tried to make that show through in her words and behavior. I'm really glad you liked getting to know the characters better :)

I see all three of the other founders loving the idea of molding students in their own image. And to me, Helga is sort of indifferent to that aspect of teaching. She wants them to learn from her, but not necessarily to BE her. If that makes sense.

The admission will happen, I promise! And it will be a huge hurdle for the founders to get over. Whether they overcome it or not will just have to wait until later :)

Thank you so much for reviewing, Jami! Your reviews always help me so much, and I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter. I'll be sure to re-request when I update next.
