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 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.

The Founders and their common room locations

Gryffindor: Tower! The highest f**king tower! F**k yeah! TOWER!

Hufflepuff: But don’t you think that’s a bit far away from everything, they’ll have to climb dozens of stairs every day…

Gryffindor: TOWER!

Hufflepuff: Oh for the love of…

Slytherin: I’m going for under the lake, LIKE A SUPER-SECRET LAIR!

Hufflepuff: But Salazar, won’t that be a bit dreary? And we’ll have to add dozens of charms to keep it dry, it will take loads of magic…

Slytherin: Super. Secret. Lair.

Hufflepuff: Fine! Fine, we’ll spend bloody hours drying out some rooms under the lake, Merlin. Rowena what about you?

Ravenclaw: Tower.

Hufflepuff: But… All the stairs, the isolation from the other houses…

Ravenclaw: Exactly. They’ll focus better if they’re miles away from everything else. Also, anything he can build, I can build better.

Hufflepuff: Seriously? You’re going to compete over towers?


Slytherin: Underground is better.

Hufflepuff: For f**ks sake, I give up. If anyone wants me, I’ll be in the kitchens.
