    Before the Beginning: A Founders Fic, With Sugar Quills

    Before the Beginning: A Founders Fic, With Sugar Quills by Arabella

    Summary: A story about the beginning of Hogwarts – did you ever wonder how the ceiling in the Great Hall was created? Oneshot, 6,757 Words.

    Why You Should Care: We know so much about the Founders and yet so little about their personalities except for clichés based off of Sorting Hat songs. Arabella brings them to life, and creates four people from four legends that feel like real people. Each character is strongly defined, yet not caricatured, and that is what sets this story apart from other Founder fics that wallow in indecision and cliché. You can see that these four were friends, once, but also that they will not always be and that there will be — inevitably — a “parting of the ways”. Very, very good.

    Why You Might Not Care: Not everyone likes to read about the Founders, and even fewer people like to read about the Founders when there aren’t any ships involved. But if you like good characters you can sink your teeth into, then you’ve come to the right place.
