I have drawn various interpretations of the young Founders over the years, I think this is getting almost historically accurate now. Enjoy!

Setting up a believable history of Hogwarts in fanfiction. [03 Jul 2008|09:29pm]


All right, well, I've been on a bit of a historical fix lately - specifically, I have some curiosity regarding the architecture of Hogwarts.  Yes, this already sounds boring, but hear me out!

A good place to start before further progressing into this post is E. D. Blanning's "...over a thousand years ago..." Britain at the founding of Hogwarts essay.  :]

According the Blanning, we ought to ignore the dozens of anachronisms riddling Rowling's work.  But, at least for the sake of the fanfiction I intend to write, I would like to be as historically accurate as possible - but the question is, to which era am I supposed to be loyal?  This is more an opinion thing than anything else, so a hand would be appreciated.

I'd like to ask you this: what do you suppose Hogwarts looked like in the day of the Founders?  There's more to it than that, though.  It really starts with, "When did the Founders actually exist?"  It's been suggested that Hogwarts was founded on the close of the tenth century, encroaching on the new millenium, because canon states its foundation "over a thousand years ago" from when Harry begins Hogwarts.  But in reality, that leaves quite a bit of leeway!

As for the founding of "Hogwarts", what was the school of witchcraft and wizardry?  Some universities did exist at the time, but only for the most wealthy - and secular education didn't really kick off until the Enlightenment in the Renaissance.  Was it initially the castle we now know it as?  Was it made of stone or timber?  And what about the Chamber of Secrets?  If I'm not mistaken [which I very well may be], sewage systems originated in Rome - but much of Roman technology was wiped out by the Germanic invasions in the centuries before Hogwarts' foundation.

As for the stone/timber question, there were very few stone castles until the 1200s a.d. of any note.  Admittedly, the Welsh were a bit ahead of the times in this area - but the Welsh weren't exactly occupying Scotland, where Hogwarts should have been located.  The area, I suspect, would have been more dominated by Norman architecture of wood.

So, what do you think is more appropriate, as far as the time setting of the Founders and Hogwarts?  Right now, for my story, I'm leaning towards a small wooden keep with the traditional motte-and-bailey set-up, though I suspect there will have to be some renewal of Roman influence later down the line.  Still in some debate.  As a reader, though, what would you find most believable?

One Hell of a Woman - Kingsley/Helga - R [08 Sep 2007|04:27pm]

[ mood | silly ]

Title: One Hell of a Woman
Author: pica_scribit
Rating: Hard R
Warning: Bizarro pairing, snarky gargoyles, sexually explicit...something.
Word Count: 2847
Genre: Semi-humourous smut, crack!pairing
Characters: Kingsley Shacklebolt, Quirinus Quirrell, Lorcan d'Eath, Professor Midgen (OC), staff room gargoyles, Helga Hufflepuff (sort of)
Pairings: Kingsley/Helga (insofar as it is possible)
Synopsis: During his seventh year at Hogwarts, Kingsley becomes curious about the founder of his house.
Timeline: Late 1982
Disclaimer: I am not J. K. Rowling. I own nothing. Please don't sue me.
Author's Note: Written for the September challenge at hp_adult (Kingsley/Helga, the staff room). I apparently cannot write PWP, especially not for a bizarro pairing like this one. It was incredibly hard to make this pairing work, but I hope you enjoy the results. Feedback is my drug of choice. Please report any errors or inconsistencies.

Kingsley chuckled.

Quirinus glanced up, distracted. "Care to share, Kings?"

Lorcan cast them a shifty look out of the corner of his eye and went back to his reading.

Kingsley shrugged his own broad shoulders. "Nothing. Just thinking that Helga Hufflepuff must have been one hell of a woman."

"If you say so," Quirinus said skeptically. "But I bet she had nothing on Ravenclaw."

Kingsley leaned across the table toward the other boy. "I'd take that bet, if I thought there was any way of proving it. I've heard Ravenclaw was pretty enough, but Hufflepuff --" He shook his head. "-- That woman had appetites."

Fan Fic: Messages of Heart and Mind [Rowena/Salazar] [06 Mar 2007|06:29pm]

[ mood | sore ]

Hello. I'm new to the community, but I've already written a Founders story, and figured I'd say something about it over here as well.

Title: Messages of Heart and Mind
Author: dark_princess17
Disclaimer: Anything you recognize does not belong to me. Instead, it all belongs to J. K. Rowling. However, anything you do not recognize does belong to me.
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Rowena / Salazar
Summary: "So how could it have gone so wrong? How could such friendships fail?" ~The Sorting Hat

Everyone knows the story of the Four Founders of Hogwarts; the tales of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin are legendary. But did everything happen in the same way that it has always been told? Did Salazar Slytherin leave strictly because of differences concerning the purity of blood? Did friendships suffer and fail because of arguments concerning the running and ruling of Hogwarts? Or was there another reason? Could the story of a romantic relationship between two of the four friends have been lost to time? And did such an event cause more damage to the school than the beliefs in blood? Received an Honourable Mention in the February One-Shot Challenge!

*Just so there's no confusion, I am megan_lupin; it's not like I'm reposting another author's story. Also, if it's not allowed for me to link to the story on the fan fiction site, rather than employ a cut here on LJ, just let me know, and I'll come back and edit the story in to here. I would just prefer not to post it in many places.

Bringing fanart and links! [21 Jan 2007|10:04pm]

I love all four of the Hogwarts founders and am very happy to be able to post to this community. I hope no one minds the major cross-posting of these fanarts, but I am a fool for the founders and must shamelessly pimp my art. I obviously like Godric and Salazar the most, but only slightly more than Rowena and Helga. Since we know so little about them, I enjoy seeing all the different interpretations of their character and theories of how or why they disagreed.

3 fanarts @ DA - Godric/Salazar, Rowena&HelgaCollapse )

And now for some Japanese fanart of the Founders, obviously a lot cuter than my own interpretations. These were incredibly hard to find...

The Founders Chronicle [27 Nov 2006|07:21am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I will shortly (once I finish my other two epics) be embarking upon a somewhat ambitious work entitled The Founders Chronicle, which will cover everything from the childhoods of the four founders up through their parting. I figured it was time to finally combine my Harry Potter obsession with my Mediaeval History degree. As it stands, the story will be set between 966 and 1008, and will be comprised of six sections with four chapters each (one focusing on each founder). Because I am an enormous geek, I will be throwing in a few Latin and Anglo-Saxon words for some of the more common vocabulary terms, I will be giving Rowena the A-S form of her name, which would have been Hroðwynn or something close to it, and I will be using excerpts from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Here's a short section to give you a taste of what is to come:
