Aw. Helga. I wish I could give you a hug. ♥

I really enjoyed the story, it was a bit sad though. I felt very much sorry for Helga, her and the house just don't get enough attention, do they? It is, in a way, unfair. Then again, who ever said life was fair.

I like how you compared Helga with the other three founders! The wording was really nice and I generally just liked it overall. I love how you described the way the other three left and how Helga stayed until the very end. For a very weird reason, I respect her a lot from after reading this story. :D

Anywho, great job with the story! Certainly enjoyed it!

Wow. This was really good and fit the little known information that we have about the founders perfectly. To be honest with you Helga reminds me of Molly Weasley. Always willing to take someone in when no one else would. In the books the Hufflepuffs always seemed to be the ones left out of everything and always seemed to be in last place it only makes sense then that the founder of the house was the same way. Great characterization and flow. I look foward to reading more from you.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing, I'm glad you found it realistic. She is like Molly Weasley isn't she? A little bit sadder maybe. Glad it made yu want to delve into my mishmash of work again;) hehe thanks!

Wow the two stories I decide to read are both so sad but so very good! I've never really read a founders piece and I really enjoyed this oneshot that shows the differences between all four and how Helga is the quiet one and even in death they all die in the way of their names. I thought that was really quite interesting. Honestly I dont have much more to say it was all really good and I didn't see any mistakes. Great Job!


Author's Response: Aw, you've made my day with these reviews :D. I write sad stuff, :/, BUT check out my parody (shameless self protiomion) :D. Thanks you for reviewing! :)

Hey, Here I am with your review!

I actually loved this story and its depiction of Helena how she was the kind, motherly, loving and caring one who just wanted to make sure that everyone was taught and that everyone had the same chances. It changed my views of Hufflepuff's a little because rather than just being the 'rest' they all have their own qualities and whilst they don't excell at them they do have them!

I loved the comparisons between Helga and the rest of the founders and I think you made them very believable with their departures to the school (whilst some were canon) were written very well and I really did love to read this. I loved the way Helga died as well compared to the others because it showed that she just rather than going off or wanting a lot, she just wanted the students to be well cared for and have Hogwarts as a home!

This was fab!

Author's Response: I think Hufflepuffs do excel at always being there and being loyal and hardworking, I think Dobby would have been a Hufflepuff (or a Griffinpuff) but I disgress... Thanks so much for the review, I worry about this little story and you've cheered me up. Glad you liked it :D

Oh, the last line just tugs at my heart! So sad, yet so beautiful as well. Bittersweet, perhaps. I really liked this. You’ve used some beautiful language here, and I was really touched by the emotion and sense of the houses that came through. The characterisation comes across quite well as well, and you’ve got an interesting take on it, but I think a realistic one as well. Helga is almost the one that will have to pick up the pieces, the type of person who is always quietly discontented with who they are, but never does anything about it, not because of cowardice or laziness, but almost out of a sense of duty, because she knows no one else will. I think this is a very Hufflepuff trait as well. This could all be drivel to you, but it is what the story made me feel. It was summed up very well, I think, with this line,

‘She took them all, scooped the leftovers into her arms. She spouted some lines about hard-working and caring and left them in the comfortable warmth.’

I also like how you’ve portrayed the other founders and portrayed them leaving. Everyone knows that Slytherin left, but I doubt many people would wonder if anyone else left eventually, either. Very interesting and fitting for the picture you paint of Godric.

I did feel at some points that the style was a little repetitive, and perhaps you could find room to cut things there, but it might take away the poignancy of the ending, which I really like. You’ve given me food for thought here. A very refreshing portrayal of the founders.

Author's Response: I know what you mean about the repetitiveness. One day *sigh* I'll be bothered to cut it and revamp it and make it better I think. Thank you so much for you lovely review, I'm glad you felt for Helga, poor girl!

This was really good. I don't read many Founders' era works, so this was a nice change.

I like your characterization of the Founders themselves. It was short, sweet, and captured the essence of the founders. Good job!


Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you so much.
