Review swap! Sorry for the long wait but it was quite late yesterday and I had to make my homework today.

I found it really interesting to see this was a Helga/Salazar as one I love minor pairings and two I recently wrote an Helena/Salazar. A different pairing I know, but I was curious how you portrayed Salazar Slytherin.

I loved the fact he acknowledged she wasn’t the most beautiful woman around, as in a lot of stories the main characters ‘love’ is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen and I liked the fact he said it was the same in her youth. So I was quite surprised to see he has a wife, but it does make much sense for that time period. So kudos on that!

To be honest with you I found the style of writing a bit annoying, with you cutting things out and such. I’m sure others would love it but it isn’t something I personally enjoy much. So you shouldn’t behave it on my behalf or anything haha.

Well done! A tip for you though would be to get a banner.

Author's Response: Hi Cleopatra! Thank you so much for the swap!

I'm a huge Founders fan, and it's the genre that comes most naturally for me when I write. So I've been playing with this pairing a lot. I might have to look at your Helena/Salazar sometime; that seems like it would be really interesting.

I didn't find it realistic for Helga to be beautiful, honestly. I mean, Rowena was described as the beautiful one, and it's like you said; all women can't be attractive. I figured that their love would be based on much more than looks. And I included their spouses to show that a happy ending is not possible for Helga and Salazar as a couple.

I mean, I figured the style might not be everyone's thing. I wanted their thoughts to complete each other, so I wrote part of a sentence from one point of view and finished it from another. It's just the way it flowed while I was writing. I really appreciate an honest opinion, because I wasn't sure how it would go over.

Thanks again for coming! I appreciate your time, and I'm so glad I got to read your story as well :)
