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.

old loves they die hard


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.

Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.

I’ll never forget the first time I walked through those doors…



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…

Rowena Ravenclaw; Dream Cast

  • Gemma Arterton


“She left me, she left me, Hel. I don’t know what to do without her.”, he said bitterly. “She will be back, she always comes back”, said Helga gently. Godric, with tears flooding his whole face, spat: I don’t think this time she will, I don’t think. But one thing I surely know, he’ll pay me. I will hunt him and I’ll throw him in hell, even if I have to go along. Then she fell silent, and he felt the disgust on her face.

True All the Same by alyxbradford

The gesture is far too tender, particularly for the savage asperity in his eyes, and Rowena feels her chest tighten at the clash between the senses. “Salazar…”

His lips graze hers softly, and he whispers, “I should hate to have to gag you, pet…” He presses a kiss to her throat, even as she swallows another sob. “Or to silence that lovely voice.”

ok so my crappy graphic looks kind of morbid, which doesn’t really fit the fic, but oh well.

“She loves knowledge, and he loves battles. Well, we know that neither a book and nor a sword alone can win a war. They’ll need both to go through what is coming.”

(I just love the BAMF Godric running from a fire’s dragon.)
