Plot Summary: During their golden ages, four of the greatest witches and wizards in Europe came together to form a school. They were friends, colleagues, perhaps even lovers, before their relationship began to crack and some turned into enemies. Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin once came together in order to build the great Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the first wizarding school in Britain. In a world where those with magic abilities were persecuted, the four of them provided not only a safe haven but also a place of learning and teaching so that the children might hone their abilities together. But how did they do it? Who decided on the name, or the slogan, or where to put their common rooms? How did the friendship between them form and blossom, before everything came apart?
Before Salazar let his prejudice for Muggle-borns drive a wedge between him and the other founders, before Rowena lost her daughter and died of heartbreak, the four of them had happier times, when the school was just built and they discovered the joy of working together with like-minded people. Although some of their personalities clashed sometimes, the love that they shared with each other allowed them to see that they complemented each other with their differences, and mutual respect reigned... before.
Details on any necessary information: This will explore the "prequel" of the HP series, of sorts, as we will be looking into the golden days of the Hogwarts Founders during the time they were alive, specifically after they became friends and in the process of building Hogwarts, before they began to drift away from each other.
Universe Need-to-Know Info: In the Harry Potter world, there are two main types of people; wizards and muggles (beyond Squibs; those born from wizards who display no magical abilities). The former can practice spells and perform magic while the latter are ordinary people like us. Hogwarts is a school of magic that teaches wizards.
