Hello! I have come for the Twelve Days of Reviewing over on the forums, and when I found this chapter, I couldn't resist reading and reviewing. I've read your work before, and you always do a magnificent job with every single aspect of the story. :)

This particular story interests me greatly because 1) It takes place in the Founders era, and 2) It's about Helena and the Bloody Baron! That's not something that I see every day, so it makes for a lovely change of pace. I really enjoy reading about how the Founders came to be, and Helena Ravenclaw has her own bit of history in the making of Hogwarts, too!

Venn Selwyn is a stubborn one according to his mother, I see! He obviously has ambition, and I have no doubt that he would be in Slytherin at Hogwarts (after all, it IS his uncle's House!). I can see how his drive to rule and have control over things will eventually cause his and Helena's ruin, but for now, I think that I like him! It is saddening to watch a character so richly described as Venn, only to know that his character will soon unravel. But that's the fun part about writing--you get to torture your characters! :)

For the Twelve Days of Reviewing, we were supposed to review a chapter about a feast, and although the feast in this chapter is not as extravagant as the Hogwarts feasts that we all know and love, it definitely plays a big role in the story. After all, this is where Venn hears the name that will haunt him for all of eternity... Helena Ravenclaw. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Brilliant story! Merry (late) Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

Author's Response: Hello! Sorry for the delay in responding :) And thank you for the lovely compliment!

You know, before I wrote this story, I wasn't all that interested in the Founders era. But I really fell in love with it, and these two characters especially, while writing this - and I'd love to write more Founders in the future. It just goes to show that you never know what you might like.

Venn is definitely very stubborn, and I'm glad you can already see how it will be his downfall, given that everyone already knows how the story ends. It really broke my heart to torture my characters, but at least I gave them a proper back story, right? Don't worry, it won't be all doom and gloom throughout the entire story.

Hope you come back soon to read more! :) Thanks for your very kind review!
