Cool! You have managed to conjure those characters and put them in word exactly as I see them in my minds eye! It was so elaborately written and the characterisation was perfect. I do hope that if you haven't yet, that you consider writing a founders novel, it would be such a thrill to read. I adore your writing style and I look forward to reading some of your other works.
Congratulations!Author's Response: Wow! Thank you! I worked very hard to develop their characters and show the contrast of each of their personalities and I'm so happy that you enjoyed it.
I hadn't even thought about writing a novel about the founders! I wouldn't know where to begin! I usually stick to one-shots because I have a very short attention span and I'm horrible at developing plots... But I'll definately think about it, it sounds interesting.
I really appreciate all of your compliments, thank you so much! Report Review
I normally don't read founders stuff because for the most part I'm just not interested in that era, however, because it was you, Jess, of course I clicked! And I'm so glad that I did. This was a great portrayal of the founders- much different than the ones that I have read. I loved how you brought them out of character for what we typicall think of when we think of characteristics of students of a particular house: Godric's drunkeness and sloth- because Gryffindors give everything they have to a cause, even if they have to find it in the bottle; Rowena's snobbery when it comes to those who aren't the smartest- to be honest, I've always felt Terry Boot and the rest of them were quite stuck up, but maybe that's just because JKR doesn't ever really tell us much about them; Helga's ability to take charge of the conversation- this was a wonderful touch, because you don't see Hufflepuffs doing it enough, but I always felt like they could, if needed; and Salazar's cunning- normally painted by goody two shoes Gryffindors as a bad thing, but here used like it should be to get exactly what he wants.
Wonderful! The whole thing!

Oh Lord that drivel made me want to vomit. The best that can be said for it was that no canon was violated and no grammer rules broken.Author's Response: Gee, that was helpful. Next time you might try some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. Thanks. Report Review
