Rowena//Salazar - requested by anon 

She was the most intelligent woman he had ever known - and she scared him in more ways than he could count. Rowena understood him better than he understood himself. She was no Legilimens, but she could read him all too easily. Whatever he felt, however dark - Rowena knew.

FOUNDERS MODERN AU: Dr. Salazar Slytherin (Michael Fassbender) and Dr. Rowena Ravenclaw (Gemma Arterton), lovers, are the founders of a college of medicine within Hogwarts University. Rowena is a leading expert in mental illnesses and neurological disorders in the country, eagerly sharing all her knowledge with her medical students. Salazar is a world renowned researcher in the field of pathology and is more dedicated to his experiments than teaching the next generation of doctors. Tension is born between the two lovers when Salazar accepts a commission from the government to produce biological weapons. Rowena gives him an ultimatum: turn away from this dark path that will only lead to destruction and the suffering of many innocent people, or leave Hogwarts. Refusing to give up his new research project despite Rowena’s desperate pleas, Salazar makes the difficult decision to leave Hogwarts and the love of his life for good, hoping one day she’ll understand his reasons for doing so.

founders friendships - rowena and salazar

logic & cunning → In some ways very similar, Salazar and Rowena both favour cleverness and ingenuity in their students. When united on something, they are the firmest of allies - though, through differing beliefs, they often find themselves divided.

Now each of these four founders
Formed their own house, for each
Did value different virtues
In the ones they had to teach.

So many nights trying to hide it But now I stay awake just pleading for more To think this heart was divided I’m losing sleep cause I can’t ignore…
