Hello :) here for Capture the Flag!

I really love how you've handled this fic in general- the four founders have always been addressed as somewhat godly or even mythical in the Potter books- but I think by writing about them you make them seem more human and realistic!

Rowena and her makes the founding much more realistic (as well as the founders mentioned above :/) because really: four immensely powerful magical people have to disagree on something, right? As opposed to the Potter books- where the founding is addressed as some sort of miracle (as if they agreed on everything) which probably wasn't the case, judging Gryffindor's fight with Slytherin, and in this case; Ravenclaw's disagreement in terms of flying.

Even with my limited History of Magic (and history in general to be honest) this sounds as if it could really be cannon; I love how you incorporate simple aspects such as Gryffindor's hat, and the Quill and Book into this as the four founders are figuring out what to do, when in the Potter books, it has already been considered history.

Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you so much, it's wonderful to hear that you have enjoyed the story and that you like my portrayal of the founders!

I really like the point you made about Rowena's opposition to flying as well - it's an example of a disagreement that they handled well, as opposed to the legendary one that sent Salazar away. You're so right- they would have disagreed on other things as well, because that's just what happens when you have four people trying to plan out something as big as Hogwarts! :P

Ah, thank you so much, that's such a wonderful compliment that this sounds like it could be canon. Since there's not much we really have from canon for this time period, I incorporated everything I could, and I'm so glad that you liked the way everything fit in!

Thanks so much for this lovely review! ♥
