Well, hello! I'm back again...

...and I can't believe I didn't come back sooner! You just make it seems so, real. So real. I love the way you write... it's so engrossing! Okay, I'll stop fangirling and well, actually make this review relevant.

I think it was good how in the beginning you told us that Helga didn't know the basics of Herbology. It was unique in the sense that everyone usually gets the idea that all Hufflepuffs are good at the subject, just because Prof Sprout teaches it during Harry's time. Again, very original and different! It was refreshing.

I like Rowena's characterization. She seems like a cross between McGonagall and Hermione... Absolutely superb to read of course.

But I must say I have a sweet spot for Helga. Maybe because it is in her POV... Nevertheless, she's brilliant! That entire exchange between her and Salazar over Muggle parentage.. I wanted to strangle him and felt truly bad for her! I love her as a person though, she shows the true qualities of a Hufflepuff(duh, that bit is obvious since it is her namesake haha): She's loyal, and works hard!

As for the dungeons... I smell a basilisk or a boggart... Hmph... mysterious indeed.

The cliffhanger! Oh the cliffhanger!

You're writing is so admirable! I cannot wait to read on!

Author's Response: Hi Nadia! I'm so sorry it's taken me a few days to respond to this review, but I'm very glad you decided to come back!

Thank you, I'm so glad it's feeling real to you! That was one of my biggest goals when writing this story; I wanted it to feel antiquated, but I didn't want it to be a difficult read by any means. It's so awesome that you're feeling that!

The Herbology thing was actually something I was careful about, and I'm so happy it stood out to you. I mean, I could definitely see Helga enjoying Herbology, but I didn't want all Hufflepuffs to be stereotyped as experts in the field.

You like Rowena, yay! I may have said this before, but I was completely surprised by how much I grew to love her as I wrote this story. She might be narrating a fic of her own in the future ;)

Agreed! Helga is my absolute favorite character I've ever written. I wanted her to embody some of the traditional Hufflepuff traits, but I also wanted her to be distinctive as a person, not just a representation of her house. I hope I've done that so far!

Haha, this is my first ever cliffie! You've got some good guesses there, though...I think you could be onto something ;)

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I appreciate it so much!
