Hi, Sam! ☺ For some reason, I suspect this story has been very popular lately. ;)

So, I loved what you did with the friendship between Godric and Salazar. I think a lot of authors forget that these two were supposed to have been friends before their infamous falling out. Even though some of the differences of opinion are already starting to show through, it's obvious that there's a genuine affection between the two of them in your story. The way that Godric makes sure that Salazar eats, even when his father is punishing him, and the way that Salazar protects his fallen friend from the dragon and the Dealers bespeaks a brotherly relationship.

The banter between the two of them as they make their way back from the forest was clever and lighthearted. It definitely sounded like a conversation that the two of them have had on more than just this occasion. And you even managed to come up with a plausible explanation for where the Hogwarts motto came from! That was really, really clever on your part!

I thought you did a great job picking prompts that you could work seamlessly into your story. This didn't sound awkward or forced like most of the entries for this challenge. I commend you for not even bothering with the dreaded "characteristic of the champion's wand" prompt. That one ruined the majority of the stories where it was included.

Suggestions? I did think that it was difficult in several places to follow which character was speaking because of the lack of dialog tag verbs. Especially during the conversation between Godric and Salazar on the way back to Salazar's home. I also saw one small typo:

Men clad in animal furs and leaves came out into the clearing and used their wands to control the creature, while trying protecting themselves from potential fire. - while trying to protect themselves?

Overall, this was a really good entry. I think it makes a fine free-standing story, even without the challenge. Nice job!
