I wish she was my teacher at school. This well demonstrates the traits of a hufflepuff, Which isn't a weakness at all but a great quality.

Amazing! I really felt like a true Hufflepuff reading this. I love that her family didn't recognize her greatness until after she founded the school, since it seems like the people who love you most can often underestimate you most. Helga sounds so brilliant and sweet (I love that anger is foreign to her, she likes to believe the best in people, she lets situations cool down before acting, etc.), and I can really see her as a mother - the most dangerous creature of all. =P

The writing style you used to convey her character was very fitting, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Everything sounded just right. Oh, and I thought it was pretty cool how she decided that 'hard-working' would be one of the qualities that she would look for in students.

That was a great way of showing what Huffelpuff is. You did a great job. I have never thought of Helga as a mother before, but now that I think about it that suits her very well. Good Job.

That's right, a mother is the most dangerous creature...

So, the original prophecy was created long ago?

10/10 To everyone who wrote these stories.

I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but am I the only one that thinks of Salazar and most of the Slytherin's as the Klan of the wizarding world? Maybe that is just me, but it was immediately what I thought of when first reading about their prejudices. Turns my stomach to think about their ignorance. They say ignorance is bliss... No wonder they walk around so happy and cocky.

Well done. I was getting worried toward the end when she wasn't feeling well. I thought she got poisoned or something. Don't scare me like that! I am going to have to recommend these stories on my site. They are great! I wasn't expecting them to be so well planned. I like the unique views on the different characters.
I LOVED the Old woman in the shoe tie in, that was pure genius! Where in the world did you get that idea from?

That's exactly the way I've always imagined Helga! And the prophecy makes for an amazing twist; you could write a heap of prequels to that story if you wanted to... Just a thought since you have such a wonderfully well thought out character here. An amazing chapter, PaMuggles!

Great chapter! I love how you portrayed Helga, with her motherly traits and all. The description and dialogue flowed really well, making this chapter very easy to read. I also admire how you wrote the dialogue, making it sounds like real eleventh century English. The argument between the founders was believable, and I love how Helga’s power really shone through. "The most dangerous creature of all is the mother protecting her young and you mark my words, I will protect each and every child in these halls even unto the death!" I got goose bumps reading that. This was a brilliant piece. Keep up the good work! 10/10

Great chapter, my friend! It is interesting to see what you wrote for Slytherin's leaving, and now that I finally got around to reading your chapter, I can see what some of our reviewers meant by inconsistency. But it doesn't matter, I enjoyed reading your creative outlook all the same! I especially enjoyed the little bit of background on the woman in the shoe nursery rhyme. I think perhaps my favorite part was the prophecy. The bit about Tom Riddle...and the bit about Harry. : 0 ) Great job!

First of all, let me say I LOVED the bit about the woman in the shoe. LOL the mingling of HP and a familiar nursery rhyme is a lovely idea I might expect JK herself to come up with.

I loved your characterization of Helga, and it seems to fit the image we have of her. Caring and accepting, kind, and still strong, both in majic and character.

I also liked the struggle in Helga between her unwillingness to dishonor anyone and her feelings of Slytherin and fear of the prophecy. The prophecy itself was an interesting idea and portrayed well, even though the books say that the four founders were friends. I must admit I felt like knocking Henry upside the head at his doubt and had to roll my eyes at her family, and I can sympaathize with Helga to an extent.

Finally, I liked the bit of Salazar both mocking and complimenting Hlga in one statement. It seemed so...Slytherin. Really, it seemed to fit something that some members of the house might do, like Malfoy or even Snape. His characterization overrall was fitting.

Overrall, good work!

Helga the fertility goddess! Goodness, I love it!

Anyway. *cough* I really did thoroughly enjoy your Helga piece. She's such a simple character, but complicated at the same time. I admit I wasn't looking forward to reading this because Helga is usually absolutely mutilated in fanfiction, but I was so wrong! You've got that Helga-ness that's so kind and loving, but underneath that you've got bravery, intelligence and sheer strength of character. In short, I simply love your Helga.

The prophecy is a really great way of tying it all together. I loved the rest of your Founders, although I have to say I would have liked you to attempt to break the Salazar-is-evil stereotype. However, he worked here as an evil Slytherin so I'm not sure what I'm saying.

Basically, I loved it! Awesome job. :D

Ah, the mother lioness defending her cubs has never been so perfectly protrayed. I loved the prophecy winding itself throughout! This was wonderful. I absolutely love the way the founders have been portrayed here. Real people! Real emotions! You limned a unique and relevent person here. Wonderful job! You gave Helga a depth and multi-faceted personality that I have never seen before. Even with her small faults (to a shallow person), I see her as a beautiful, strong witch who deserves her house's admiration and respect. As you have mine...

Supurbly done! I loved the way you presented Helga as the mother of many - it was a new way to look at her and I think a more fitting way. Her house accepts everyone that the other 3 houses deems unsuited and helps them all feel that they fit in. At least it seems that way to me. I was pleased to see that you dragged the construction of the castle on for over a year - it seems unrealistic to have it raised in a day, even with magic. Very well done! - Jenn

It is really refreshing to see slightly older founders with some experience in life! I think the idea of Helga being a mother is perfect for Hogwarts - a genius idea - well done! I particularly liked this line: "The most dangerous creature of all is the mother protecting her young and you mark my words, I will protect each and every child in these halls even unto the death!"
