Good! Only one critique: they wouldn't have had trains back in this era.

Great story! I thought you did a good job of writing with older, more elegant language (which in these modern days, we all too often lack).

Aside from that, I think you really excelled in the construction of the story. The conversation starts on begrudgingly friendly terms and gathers a full head of steam by story's end. I liked Slytherin; you gave him appropriate — or at least understandable — reasons to be resistant to Muggle interference.

Author's Response: I just finished beta'ing your story =P. Thank you so much for the review! It was written quite a while ago... I should check this more often! It's so nice to hear that you liked my story! I had a really hard time writing it, and kept getting writer's block ever five minutes. Thank you so much for your kind words!

WOW! This is fabulous. I read through the whole thing with nit-picky eyes, trying to see whether the language would become too modern ... but it doesn't. Your phraseology is brilliant. What I think I particularly enjoyed is that when they veered off to talk about other things (the school history, languages etc) their main difference was never far away and kept re-emerging. Both arguments were presented very well. We may disagree with Salazar but his point of view becomes somehow valid, because Muggles did persecute them.

The only bit I got slightly confused with was Hengist and the train. Trains weren't invented until many centuries later, so I doubt the Founders would have had puplis arrive there by that mode of transport. I did wonder whether Hengist was seeing a vision of the future - but it wasn't that clear to me.

However that was a very, very minor quibble and in no way ruined my enjoyment of the fic. Carole xxx

Author's Response: Wow my first review ever! Thank you so much Carole, you just made my entire day! =) To be totally honest, I didn't even realise that bit with the train *headdesk*, but at least their language never faltered. =P
