Characters: All four Hogwarts founders, numerous major and minor original characters, and Helena Ravenclaw.
Summary: All Godric wanted was a quiet life of scholarship, ideally one that didn't involve starving to death. So when two old friends (well, acquaintances, really) showed up and offered him a teaching job, he took it with few reservations, not realizing how extensively he was involving himself in international magical politics.
Length: Long. (FF.N says 134,920 words.) WIP.
Pairings are present, but in the background; there is established Helga Hufflepuff/OMC, past Rowena Ravenclaw/OMC(s). Contains some minor romance subplots of various kinds, but the focus of the plot is politics, magical theory, and humor.
The first chapter is here. The newest chapter is Chapter 26. There is also a master Founders post. In this week's chapter, bad things happen to good people.
