ϟ 117) Salazar Slytherin may have built the Chamber of Secrets, but the other founders had their own hideaways as well. Helga built the Room of Requirement to help anyone in need. Godric built the underground chambers (which would house the Philosopher’s Stone) so his students could test their mettle against unknown challenges. And as for Rowena… well no one’s found her chamber. She was too clever in hiding it.

THE SWORD OF GRYFFINDOR | noun

The Sword of Gryffindor was a goblin-made sword owned by the famed wizard Godric Gryffindor, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Fashioned from pure silver, it is inset with rubies, the stone that represents Gryffindor in the hour-glasses that count the house points at Hogwarts. Godric Gryffindor’s name is engraved just beneath the hilt. It is believed that only true Gryffindors of pure, courageous heart could summon the sword and wield it.

I find it weird that people are so keen to make Godric Gryffindor Welsh (and by extension have Godric’s Hollow/Potter Manor/whatever in Wales).

I mean, Godric isn’t a Welsh name, it’s old English, and if we go by the sorting hat song:

Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.

then Godric is much more likely to be from the North of England, possibly around Yorkshire. Hufflepuff is the more likely candidate to be Welsh; Wales is known for it’s valleys and mountains after all.

Based on the hat’s song, Hufflepuff is most likely Welsh, Ravenclaw is probably Scottish, Gryffindor would be from the North of England and Slytherin would probably be from the East of England, around Peterborough.

Idk, I just find it interesting that people see a Welsh connection with Gryffindor, because I really don’t. 

i am like 3000% sure that like the four founders of hogwarts were like super-besties and went on these crazy adventures

and then once they literally tickled a sleeping dragon just for kicks and then all this shit goes down and at the end of the day everyone was just like that was the absolute worst thing that has ever happened

and that’s why the motto is ‘never tickle a sleeping dragon’

HELGA HUFFLEPUFF’S CUP | noun

Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup was a magical item created by one of the founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Helga Hufflepuff. The cup was a creation of Helga Hufflepuff, the celebrated Founder of Hufflepuff House. It was described as a shining golden cup with two finely wrought handles on either side and a badger engraved on its surface.The cup was said to possess many magical powers, though the exact nature of those powers is not known. Hufflepuff was brilliant with food-related charms and with house-elves, so the cup may have been the very first dining utensil at Hogwarts to assist in the magical transportation of food from the House-Elf Kitchens. The cup remained with Hufflepuff until the time of her death.
