Hey Maggie! As I love this story, I decided to review chapter 6 as well!

I thought the opening scene was great, as I'm really glad that Elaine and Rowena are getting closer, as I feel at times there's a more masculine feel to the story, so perhaps with all 3 of them being friends now, it will create a more feminine feel to it :)

I also liked that scene because it showed how there are many different forms to intelligence. Though Elaine maybe considered inferior by Salazar for not being of magical blood, she is probably has a lot more practical and useful knowledge than she does. Even the hard working and practical Helga recoginises that is something she lacks in, as she's more of an academic. It showed you that neither forms of intelligence should be rated better than the other.

I thought it was funny, how Rowena wishes she had a family and children, yet once she has her daughter (Helena), they fall out when Rowena is dying over her diadem. So it just goes to show that even though you may crave and wish for something it doesn't always work out like you expect it to.

I guess you could draw comparisons of Helga and Salazar to Merope and Tom Riddle senior. Both were desperatly in love with someone who despised their blood/magical status, so they disguised it so they could get together. As Merope and Tom's ended tragically when she revealed her true birth, I'm guessing Helga and Salazar's isn't going to go that well either, I'm wondering whether this will be the thing which fuelled his departure.

You can tell where the fatal flaw of Hogwarts is but what Helga said, saying she wanted to create a legacy of unity not division, which is exactly what it does with the house system. And whichever house you land in, you get prejudiced against immediatly and have to face that for the rest of your life.

I thought the scene at the end was wonderful, with Salazar sticking up for Helga, you can see the beginnings of their romance now! I really loved this chapter, and you know you can always re-request whenever you want as I love this story! Kiana :)

Author's Response: Hey again!

That scene with the women is one of my favorites in the entire story so far. I like the dynamic they have together, and I like seeing Elaine happy :) And I love what you say about different types of intelligence. I hadn't thought of it that way, but it's a great thing to take away from that scene. Salazar (and even Godric) could probably learn from that comment :)

Rowena has a story of her own to tell, definitely, and it's got some sadness in it. I'm trying to show little shades of it throughout Helga and Salazar's story, but maybe I'll end up writing something from Rowena's point of view. That could be a good next project :)

Wow, I never thought of that comparison with the Riddles, but it makes perfect sense! I love hearing about things that readers see in this story that never occured to me. But you would be right in predicting trouble in Helgazar's future. I hope you'll keep reading to see how things unfold.

Thanks for the wonderful reviews! I'm off to re-request for the last chapter now. I really appreciate all the time you've put into this :)
