    It was just updated. I thought it was unique, with some wartime history of the Founders interspersed throughout the story. The whole champions of the Founders thing was slightly cheesy, but I think that this story was a forerunner of that particular cliche. When the author gets to the messy parts, he does it good. The combat, details, and everything else were there. The only thing I thought was a bit extreme was how the Slytherin dungeons were depicted.

    Think this is already in the trash bin because I tried it first sorry.

    I still like it even though its getting worse every update which are far apart.

    Erm... I don't think this was trash binned. I couldn't locate it in the library. Closest thing I could find was the author made an introduction and plugged the fic way back (before my time) here: http://forums.darklordpotter.net/showthread.php?t=327

    Anyone know otherwise?

    The author's profile states that it is completed, and is being beta'd, so I think that the update pace will pick up, to those interested.

    Is there a list of all the fics in the Trash Bin? It's easy enough to look through the list of fics already accepted into the library, but it's something of a chore to look through that many pages in the Trash Bin subforum.

    Search for it?
    If its not in the trash bin, General, then it was not accepted and was deleted.

    It updated, and the latest chapter had a massive, and very well-written battle scene. It was pretty good, except that again, the discrepancy with the numbers/population of wizards arises. It could be worse.

    Donno about this. It well written I'll give it that but I can't help feeling that there's something missing from the story. It's like biting into a jelly-donut only to find that is sugar-free jelly inside...

    3/5

    While all characters in the story have been idealised a bit, the story is by and large okay. There are plenty of interesting ideas, and the linking of the past history of the Founders to the powers manifested by their present day heirs is very well done. All in all, a decent read.
