seems a house of leaves

Sparks and Mud by greennotebook
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Past Featured StoryA 4-part chronicle of the collapse of the relationships between Hogwarts's Four Founders, "Sparks and Mud" follows the founders through the year that ended their ability to work together, yet inevitably set Hogwarts onto the path it is on today. Through a smattering of romance, friendship, humor, and of course, tragedy, find out how the promise contained in the relationship of the founders fell apart into sparks and mud.





Mentions of violence in later chapters- nothing big, but I'm putting the warning up anyway.

Wow. This story is really exceptional. I donít read very many founder fics, but out of the few I have read, this one is by far my favorite. I canít believe it doesnít have more reviews!

I loved your characterization. We donít know a lot about the founders and a lot of founder fics seem to stick with the fanon characterization, but your characters really broke the mold, while at the same time fitting so well into canon and being completely believable. The little details you included were absolutely brilliant. I didnít notice until the end that Ravenclaw favored the sky, just as her Houseís mascot does, while Hufflepuff, just like her mascot, stays on the ground. Very clever. Gryffindor and Slytherin as well shared several traits with the lion and snake.



Your use of language, in both dialogue and narration, was absolutely phenomenal. The way the founders speak is very believable for the time period. Your final characterization of the Houses (ďSlytherin questioned the light, while Ravenclaw understood and recognized the balance. Gryffindor defied the dark, while Hufflepuff worked within itĒ) is such a wonderful description. I had never thought of it that way.

It was very clever of you to title your four chapters with the elements of each House. I didnít notice you had done that to the end. Everything you write is significant. I can really see the effort you put into this, and it pays off. You have such a wonderful story!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for that review! Yes, I know I kind of rocked the fanon boat a little bit. I do figure it\'s nice to stretch our non-canon perceptions a bit occasionally. I really appreciate you noticing the work I put into this, and I\'m glad you enjoyed it so much.

What a lovely story! I was so in the mood for a good next generation story, and this really hit the spot!

I love that you focused on Scorpius. I always thought about how hard it would be for the Potter and Weasley kids having to live up to their parents' fame, but it never occurred to me how hard it would be to deal with the consequences of your family's mistakes. I thought your portrayal of Draco was particularly strong, and I loved your Scorpius. Their relationship was one of the best parts of the story I thought.

Great job!

Beautifully researched and beautifully written. I'm so glad I read this story-it was inspiring and touching with a touch of humor and a large dose of originality.

Great work!

Eponine

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I must say that each of the Founders feels so real to me, as if they were telling me their stories. The research was interesting, I hadn't really known much about the British Isles before the Norman conquest and the Battle of Maldon quite took my breath away. There are lots of tag ends and loose pieces that are making their way into drabbles - and possibly other stories,

 

The Exťrcito de Leoa by Kristen Floss
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary:

It's been over thirty years since Harry defeated Lord Voldemort, yet a new threat hangs over the Wizarding World. The Exército de Leoa are a faceless organization who will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. The only problem is, no one knows what they are.

Draco and Astoria Malfoy crossed them, and they paid the price in Azkaban. Their son Scorpius wants them free, and revenge on The Exército de Leoa. There's only one way to achieve this, and that is to find Harry Potter. But the old hero has fled, for reasons no one can clarify.

Scorpius and his wife Lyra know that they have a limited amount of time in which to do this. What they don't know is what they're searching for might not be the solution...

The Dark Without a Face by QueenHal
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 11]

Summary: At Salem Witches’ Institute, the most prestigious academy for young witches in America, only a handful of girls are selected each year. Old wizarding families groom their young daughters from birth, hoping to be one of the few who get to brag at parties in the coming season about their child’s acceptance. What actually goes on at Salem is shrouded in secrecy, but the fact that it consistently produces the best and most powerful the American wizarding world has to offer seems to have been enough for the Bluebloods for centuries.


But when Libra Malfoy, daughter of foreign diplomats Scorpius and Rose Malfoy, is accepted, she’s not sure what to make of her mysterious new school. As she begins to investigate the strange happenings at Salem, she finds herself tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Could Salem’s methods be rooted in something sinister? It’s only too possible…

I ADORE this! Ahh! I've told you so many times how much I love this idea and I assure you, the execution is even better! I love that this story is completely American. Unlike some others-school stories I have read, this one is truly original. American wizards have their own culture, which makes such perfect sense. PLUS, I love the reference to the play. Perfect perfect perfect!

I also LOVED the interaction between Libby and her father. YES. It was perfect!

I don't know how much more I could gush about this chapter without being redundant and killing the exclamation point more, but I just adore it! Yay! Good job!
