Thanks to the EXCELLENT set of founders!FBAWTFT characters recently posted by @classicalcassiopeia, I have the sudden urge to write/worldbuild more in that ‘verse.

Do! Do! *sets up camp*

The problem is, I have absolutely no ideas/inspiration jangling around, just the will to /write/. …wel, except for the scenario when Godric!Graves bodily puts himself between Salazar!Newt when they’s summoned back to Hogwarts, because like fuck is he repeating his greatest mistake ever. (He fought against Salazar Slytherin once. He should have fought for him - not in terms of following his doctrine, but to rescue his friend/almost lover from his own despair and fear.)

I mean, I’d be entirely up for seeing that scenario, but let’s see. Other possibilities:

- how does Theseus fit into all of this?

- Grindelwald’s reaction to finding himself faced with the four reincarnated founders of Hogwarts who are all pissed at him (with bonus extra, I’d really be interested in Dumbledore’s take on all of this as well)

- Newt finding their respective animal guardians for them (ok, so maybe I just want Tina with a grumpy badger and Graves being followed around by a lion while Queenie’s eagle just shakes its head at everyone)

Any of this hit on something?

I don’t think Theseus knows. Newt - Salazar never had a brother. Never had someone who loved him unreservedly as family, never really had a family - except for the other founders, and we all know how that turned out. He’s gone to great lengths to avoid the subject of his past life with Theseus, and if he has his way, Theseus will never know.

Honestly, I think I’m most interested in the various reactions to Newt. Because - for all that there are four Hogwarts Houses, for all that there are Four Founders, most people seem to have selectively edited their understanding of what it would mean for all the Founders to make a reappearance. It’s one thing to know, in the abstract, that four immensely powerful witches and wizards constructed Hogwarts; it’s another thing entirely to meet blue eyes anre realize that that number includes Salazar Slytherin, infamous Dark Wizard.

…For some reason, I see Tina summoned first. (That’s how it plays out in my mind; the Sorting Hat lets slip that the Founders have reincarnated, and - well. There’s a very old spell, worked into the foundations of Hogwarts, that would call its creators home… And some people can’t resist using it). Tina accepts no excuses as she tears the wizards at Hogwarts a new one, roaring about how they had no right. Queenie is the next to follow as she apparates/lets the summoning take her; she appears in a burst of blue-and-bronze fire, dreamily telling Tina that ‘the boys’ are - well. What did you expect? ‘Himself’ is very upset, and Godric is doing his best to comfort him, but - her own castigation of the assembled witches and wizards is interrupted as Graves promptly explodes into being in a surge of red-and-gold flames; he does not pull any punches, and indeed is the first to pull out his wand as he stalks forward.

Any awe the assembled wizards might feel upon meeting Godric Gryffindor is overtaken by confusion as Tina interrupts what would be a vicious fight to anxious inquire ‘how is he?’ That stops Graves in his tracks; he paused, turns slightly towards her, a snarl in his clipped voice as he responds. ‘How do you think, Helga? He’s falling apart. He’s in exactly the same state that he was in that time in the park; he can’t think, he can’t breathe -’

Graves is interrupted by a burst of green-and-silver flames, and Newt steps into the Headmaster’s office, eyes fixed on the floor.

He doesn’t look up. He can’t; he steps forward, shaking slightly as he stumbles towards his friends, towards his family, towards Godric - Godric, who slings an arm around his shoulder, pressing their foreheads together in a wordless reassurance before stepping in front of the redhead, the Goldsteins at either shoulder as they form a united front between Newt and the rest of the world.

*shakes fist at tumblr*. I’m sorry, friend, this is the first time I’ve seen your post - tumblr is ever hungry, it seems.

*is thoughtful*. I think it’s less a glamor and more Hogwarts itself Taking Steps. It’s - something between a glamor and a Fidelius charm; when Newt, Graves, and the Goldsteins are at Hogwarts as the Founders, people can look at them, can recognize them as the Founders, can take in their features - it’s simply that they cannot connect what they look like to their current incarnations. You could standing Godric!Graves next to a picture of Percival Graves, and a non-Founder would simply be unable to make the connection.

If that’s the case, I think that even the ghosts wouldn’t be able to note the similarities. It makes for a bit of cognitive dissonance for Newt, actually - keep in mind that he’s the only one of the four who attended Hogwarts the second time around. These are people that he knows, that he’s fond of, and they simply cannot recognize him.

I think that Helena Ravenclaw didn’t really have time to ponder the idea before Queenie Goldstein was politely knocking on the door to the Ravenclaw quarters, asking if she could come in.

Queenie has learned. Has learned that wisdom and intelligence are not the be-all-end-all. She has learned that family should have come first, before everything, and she just wants to say - she wants to say that she’s sorry. That she loves her daughter, and always has. She’s not expecting anything of her; Helena shouldn’t feel that she has to reciprocate her feelings, but her mother will always love her.

Hmmm, I want to say that it is something that started in their past lives, but none of them had the courage to act on. 

Now, they have a second chance.

Oh no, oh no, my heart can’t take it. But maybe now Newt can clear that shit up? Because it wasn’t really that he hated them, but that there were so many dangers involved in bringing Muggleborns in during those times. 

Poor Newt.

@adsumcirrat @stylishbutdefinitelyillegal @aethelar

I’m honestly not sure why people are reacting with cries of ‘evil!’ and ‘how can you do this to me?!’ to my worldbuilding about Newt, Graves, Tina, and Queenie as the reincarnations of the Hogwarts Founders. It’s lovely angst that ends up in the sweetest, fluffiest fluff I can imagine.

After all, I haven’t even mentioned the side-story/semi-sequel/AU where the Sorting Hat spills the beans that at least one of the Founders has reincarnated, and the four of them are magically summoned (under a disillusionment charm so their current identities remain unknown) to Hogwarts. (I picture Graves being very protective and supportive of Newt (and snarling at everyone who even looks at him wrong), with the women backing him every step of the way (Tina takes charge, and everyone underestimates Queenie.))

You really should never meet your heroes. Their tendency to be real people can be downright disturbing. Not to mention their habit of shattering stereotypes.

“The times were different. I was different. The whole bloody world was different!”
