Review:Kira says:
This is lovely. I can't say that I've read too many Founders fics, but I've always been fascinated by their story; I've definitely always wanted to know more.

You do a really nice job of capturing mood right off the bat with your descriptions. They have a great balance as well. They aren't overwhelmingly long, but I'm never wondering about what certain things look like. It's a delicate balance, and you really hit it.

I love what you're doing with Salazar here. In the few Founders stories I've seen, he's often already kind of a "bad apple." He already seems like the bad guy. I like your take better. He should be close to them; it will make their falling out more realistic and heartbreaking. Just because he didn't hold with the ideals of the other three, it doesn't mean he was a rotten to the core type person. People are rarely that simple. So, I like that he seems to have a good nature about him; it shows that you're not scared of creating good, believable character development.

You do some great, subtle things to help us know your characters. Helga's cozy home and cooking skills, Rowena's need to think smarter than the people she's forced to be around; it's all really showing where these people came from and echos where their going in the future as far as their houses go. I'm figuring we get to know more about the men in later chapters, well, more about everybody really. And the best thing is, I want to know more.

I said it before, and I'll say it again. Lovely, lovely job.

I'm going to stick this guy on my favorites if that's alright with you! :)

Author's Response: Oh thank you! That is wonderful to hear. I worked a lot at setting the mood and descriptions in this so it's really lovely to hear that you liked them.

I'm thrilled to hear that about Salazar. I try to stick to canon as much as possible, and in canon Salazar and Godric were supposed to be such good friends. So I thought Salazar couldn't really be a "bad guy" from the start - there had to be a basis for such a long standing friendship.

I'm so glad you liked the characterisation, and that you think it matches their future Hogwarts houses. As for getting to know the other characters, the POV rotates among the four founders so you'll get to know the other three as the story goes on. :)

A favourite? :O Well thank you, I'm honoured! I hope you continue to enjoy the story. Thanks so much for your amazing and very thoughtful review! ♥ ♥
