Master Founders Post
Chapter 23

Author's note: This chapter is dedicated to my parents, who are terrifically inspiring.

More seriously, this is the first chapter I've ever felt I should post a TRIGGER WARNING for. The very last scene (there are four in this chapter, and it is Rowena's second scene) depicts a pretty intense bout of emotional abuse by a parent. If you have triggers around this or simply don't want to deal with reading that kind of thing right now, you may want to skip it. I wouldn't have thought to warn for it, and I feel kind of silly doing so, only it took me several months to make myself write it, and then several months after writing it to be able to reread/edit, and I don't want to spring Horrible Things on my readers who are looking for fun escapism.


When Rowena awoke, she was in a wooden room without doors, outside windows, or her wand.Collapse )

Fandom: Harry Potter
Characters: The Founders, various OCs
Rating: PG
Summary: A little tourism, a little espionage, a little planning.
Author's Note: This chapter has been beta'd by Kitty, but yes, I'm still looking for a beta.

Also, a brief note on canonicity, Pottermore, and worldbuilding: I'm sticking to the events and implications of the seven novels and three in-world books for canon. I'm NOT including information from the many and varied WB promotional materials, video games, things J.K. Rowling has said in interviews or put on her website over the years, or the new information Pottermore is providing us with. I love that JKR has giving us these details, and I will probably end up using some of them in this or future fics - I especially like her wandlore, for example - but the medieval world I'm writing in this fic doesn't reconcile well with a lot of the new information or the more obscure interview information, and I'd have to change the story completely to incorporate all of it.

(I may also have a slight grudge against Pottermore because I got sorted into Gryffindor instead of Hufflepuff.)

Their first day at sea was nothing extraordinary according to Helga.Collapse )

Rating: PG
Summary: Helga, Rowena, and Godric are headed north.
Author's Note: This chapter has been beta-read by Kitty, as I mentioned last week, so thank you, Kitty! I'm still looking for a new beta, so if you're interested, please tell me. Enjoy this week's chapter.

Also, a brief note on geography: I originally set this chapter in the town of Kingston-Upon-Hull, which is a harbor town. Actually, it is still set in Hull, only when I went and did more research, I found out that the town by the mouth of the river Hull was apparently called Wyke back then, because the king hadn't renamed it Kingston-Upon-Hull. Confusingly, there are several other Wykes in England. If you or a loved one know of a modern-day Wyke, please be assured, this is not your Wyke. I apologize for any confusion.

The wizarding harbor at Wyke, hidden carefully near the Muggle one, was busy when they arrived at midday.Collapse )

Rating: PG
Summary: Godric, Rowena, and Helga prepare to visit Ari Stigandrson's family in the north.
Author's Note: After long last, chapter 18 and the new plot arc! Excuses are boring, I know, but I had some unavoidable Big Life Issues that got in the way of writing this, and also caused writer's block. The good news: I have written up to chapter 32, so you will be getting one new chapter a week from me, barring computer issues, apocalypse, etc. The bad news: my beta reader, Kitty, due to her own unavoidable Big Life Issues, is not able to beta for me right now. She did manage to beta the first part of this plot arc (including, obviously, this chapter) but if I don't find another beta before chapter 26, I will be posting sans beta. If you are interested in beta reading for me, please tell me.

(..."Beta" doesn't even look like a word anymore, does it?)

Also, I am compiling an illustrated cast list here. It is still very much a work in progress.

Rating: PG
Summary: In the post-feast chaos, nobody is having a good time.
Author's Note: You can still contribute to The Hogwarts Express, a Harry Potter fanzine, at expresszine !

Many thanks to my beta for 1.) her suggestions in the last few chapters -- she always makes helpful suggestions, but these chapters went through a couple of drafts before we were satisfied, and also for 2.) the post-concussion AIM conversation which I am told she no longer remembers, wherein she ranted at me about how Wikipedia, by listing it among the symptoms of concussions, was calling her irritable. The nerve!

I also owe my friend David some thanks, as he listened while I blathered at him about all the possible permutations of Rowena's injuries, and made a few suggestions of his own.
