Hey! Here for the 12 days of reviewing :D

Ok there are so many things I loved about this chapter so if itís a bit rambling Iím sorry :P

Yay for them now being at Hogwarts that was really great because it was such a twist to the usual founders story with the Pied Piper leading them there. I really loved Marigoldís negative view of the founders because it was just so different to the usual one but really refreshing compared to the whole I love you and youíre awesome thing.

Her nerves when being sorted were so horrible I just wanted to hug her. I can actually see her as a Ravenclaw because sheís very quick witted and can suss out a situation really quickly, so it was great that you went to the effort of tying in her characterisation with that. Also, a very minor note but the small references to Gryffindor and Ravenclaw being like Roman gods was great!

Ooh I loved the story behind the secret passageway it was really interesting and great that you included it because Iíll think more about it now :P

Wah, Iím still not sure about Stephane. I sort of like him because he went and picked out Marigold to make sure she was ok and stuff, but he probably caused the destruction of Hamlin by taking them away so not so good in that respect. Speaking of Hamlin it reminded me of what happened in district 12 in the Hunger Games if youíve read, and everything was so helpless and lost. When they came across Greta I really thought I was going to tear up because she was just so helpless and in need of a hug or something similar.

I feel so bad about Marigold losing her parents and her grief was all so real that it made it even worse in that respect.

Ď Iíll always be the potterís boy,Ēí a nod towards Harry? :P Also the mentions of Helena being alone were great and sort of explained the decision to steal the Diadem too!

The ending was great with her talk with Rowena as it left so much unsaid and hopefully Iíll have time to get round to the epilogue soon and see how it all finishes off. Great chapter!

Author's Response: Hi Kiana! :)

Thanks so much for coming back and reviewing this! I was really eager to find out what people might think of it. :)

Yes! The path to Hogwarts was a little more sinister due to the Piper being the one to force the children to go there! I'm really glad you liked the founders being more negative at this point and found it original- I agree, it's rare that the founders are seen as anything other than heroes. :P

I know, poor Marigold! I feel like it would be quite frightening and confusing especially since she didn't want to be there. I'm glad you found her being a Ravenclaw make sense: I thought it fit her well and that she would have a lot to learn from Rowena. Ah, thank you, I liked that reference as well. :)

I'm glad you liked the explanation of the passageway! I love Hogwarts history and lore, and writing about how it could have come into being.

I agree about Stephane- he's a rather questionable and multi-faceted character to me. He has good qualities and bad ones, and he's easily manipulated by his father, but he does truly care a lot about Marigold. Ah yes it is a little like District 12! I can't imagine how hard it would be for someone like Marigold to go back and see what had happened to her town. And yes, poor Greta! :(

Yes, good catch there! :P I was wondering if anybody would point out the links between Trip and Harry. :) I'm glad you liked how Helena was portrayed as well though it was quite sad to think about her childhood.

Thanks so much for this amazing review, lovely! :)
