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 160,561 words.) WIP.
Pairings are present, but in the background (although some chapters have fade-to-black implied sex); there is established Helga Hufflepuff/OMC, past Rowena Ravenclaw/OMC(s) and some one-sided crushing. 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 30. There is also a master Founders post with links to other archives.
