So I just remembered this from Goblet of Fire:

“Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,

Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,

Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,

Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.”

I reckon this means that the founders are from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland respectively, and so they are literally bringing wizards and witches from all over Great Britain. Also, their colours are the colours associated with each country; red for England, blue for Scotland, yellow for Wales and green for Ireland.

I love this world so so much.


“What’s interesting about the wizarding world is when you take physical strength out of the equation, a woman can do magic just as powerfully as a man can do magic. A woman can fight just the same as a man.”

- J.K. Rowling

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.

252. Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy Pevensie grew old the first time they visited Narnia, and many wonder what they did. Few know the new names they took there as they started a school for their new home to teach those that would come after them. They didn't want people to be influenced by their name, so they took new names that would stand out with their new school. Godric, Rowena, Salazar, and Helga.

These started out as entries for the unparalleled blog, Wizarding Wednesday , but they went on hiatus before they covered Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw for their weekly prompts so I took it upon myself to finish the series. Now that Wizarding Wednesday is back I guess I’ll have to make more Founders art if and when the Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw prompts are covered. Somehow I think I shall find the strength to carry on.
