that was so sad, and I have to say I loved it. can't say much more than that, since my head is killing me, but you gave me exactly what I was looking for this afternoon. Hufflepuff is my house and, yes: we are underestimated; hance why everyone else never put Salazar falling for lovely Helga, or Helga being the last founder alive. anyway, I'm in love. xx

Aw. Well, I can't say I expected a happy end. As you said, such is the Founder's Era. It really is a sad story. The best of friends creating a legacy that would last for thousands of years, yet their friendship didn't. Ah, founders. If only fanfic authors weren't so cruel.
Anyways, pity aside, this story was really wonderful and I enjoyed it very much. I love the Helga/Salazar relationship.
Thanks for writing. .

*sigh* You made me cry, twice, and it's 4:30 AM where I'm at now, typing this review, and I hope I manage to convey how I feel about this story as best as I can...
First of all, I'm going to say I simply love your writing style. It has a sort of elegance to it, which made this story very enjoyable and easy to read. Many of your sentences read in a very poetic sort of feel - they flowed very easily, and just about every word written here just jumped out at me, and it all felt so real. Your plot was believable, and I have to say I really like the fact that Salazar held some form of contempt toward Helga in the beginning. It may be a bit cliche, but hell, that's romance, and I think hardly anything can be called original these days, and your development of their relationship was done rather well - it had just the right amount of pacing, didn't feel forced, and the intimacy wasn't overly prominent, and so, I think you managed to write a very convincing plot line, making a very poignant story as well as establishing a little romance between characters. This was lovely, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
I'm not done yet, though: I really loved how you put a spotlight on Helga in this, keeping in my mind little details about her and her house (the mention of the badger, for example, and it being underestimated). I particularly enjoyed her and Salazar's characterizations. Overall, your characters were believable, and I became attached to them very quickly.
That said, the tragedy here broke my heart, especially the one concerning Gryffindor. The others were very well done, too, but portraying him as having seemingly vanished without a trace just gives the ending a mysterious aura, which was somewhat already there when Salazar left, but giving the plot more substance like that just made the poignancy here all the more stronger.
Overall, I just felt like this was... Brilliant. I wish I could say more, but you made me cry! That doesn't happen! I don't cry reading fanfiction, but you wrote everything just so well, and with such a carefully crafted ending, I can't resist not wanting to go back and read this again, even if it will make me extremely sad.

Amazing. I don't read much of Founders Era, but this was definitely worth it.
I've always subconsciously shipped Salazar and Helga, though I see their relationship just as you wrote it: unspoken emotions and a romance never realized.
Wonderful story, I enjoyed it very much.

OMG! I was gonna write fan fiction on Helga and Salazar but your is soooo much better that mine would be!
| Catherine chapter 6 . 9/17/2012
Ahh! That was heartbreaking but beautiful! Great, amazing, perfect fic!
| OhTex chapter 6 . 9/17/2012
Oh, you've made a mess of me!
I'm laughing, I'm crying...what a brilliant whirlwind of a last chapter! I know you were hesitant about this chapter but I completely loved it!
Godric was just spot on and the Ball scene was so wonderful! We definitely got his and Salazar's dancing styles right!
Brilliant end! :)

I like how you've done Slytherin. Realistic, and not maliciously evil.

I love it. There are not a lot of Helgazar fics out there and this is one of the best I've read yet. I hope there will be many chapters more!:3
