    Dead Things

    Dead Things by AcidPop25

    Summary: Helena could always tell their spells apart. Drabble, 638 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is a very interesting sliver in time during the Founders Era.  In only 600 words, AcidPop manages to give us a fairly complete character summary of Rowena Ravenclaw, Salazar Slytherin, and Helena Ravenclaw, as well as offering (in even less words) what probably amounts to a very accurate view of Helga and Godric as well.  The interplay between Helena and her mother is well done, and quite fascinating.  This piece drips with style from start to finish.

    Why You Might Not Care: Founders fic ahead!  Also, you might wish there was more.  It works very well short — don’t mistake — but at the same time, the author makes it work so well that you just want more.

      A very good character piece and truly worth the read…but isn’t her name Helga?

      I think you are confusing Helena Ravenclaw (Rowena’s daughter) with Helga Hufflepuff?

      Agreed, Kerstin. I JUST found this author a couple of days ago, albeit for her lovely Sirius/Regulus.

      It’s primarily about Helena Ravenclaw, Rowena’s daughter, but there’s a apt little observation about Helga Hufflepuff in it, too, though she’s not the focal point of the story by any means. Sorry for the confusion, but the bit about Helga and Godric is an aside note, while the rest is about Helena.
