. . .

to illustrate this blog and make graphics, i use mainly Richard Madden as Godric, and Gemma Artenton as Rowena, but of course you can submit your graphics with others actors.

a tiny tumblr dedicated to these two Hogwarts' founders, and precisely the founders of two mythical houses: Godric Gryffindor and Rowena Ravenclaw.
as we don't know a lot about the founders; dreamcasts are very welcome, drabbles, fics, graphics, gifs or what you want with these two. the work you submit don't have to be a "ship gaphic", it just has to implied Godric or Rowena.
as the only moderator, i can unilaterally decide to not accept your graphic if it doesn't fit the rules. sorry.

"You all know, of course, that Hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago - the precise date is uncertain - by the four greatest witches and wizards of the age. They built this castle together, far from prying Muggle eyes, for it was an age when magic was feared by common people, and witches and wizards suffered much persecution."

Harry Potter Etymology | Rowena Ravenclaw

ROWENA: “Rowena” is Old English for “red hair,” which ties in with Jo’s fascination for those with red hair. It means “rugged” in Gaelic. In Welsh poetry, Rowena is named “mother of the nation,” which could link in to her being a founder of Hogwarts. She also is another character whose name surfaces in the great epic Ivanhoe.

RAVENCLAW: Ravens are known to be smart birds. Makes sense that Ravenclaws are known as wise, quick learners.

"Sometimes, you are boldly mean, Gryffindor!”
And Lady Rowena turned her back, resoluted to ignore him and his opinions.

Harry Potter Etymology | Godric Gryffindor

GODRIC: Means “power of god.” Derived from the Old English “god” combined with “ric,” meaning “power” and “rule.” Name became conmmonly used after the Norman conquest.

GRYFFINDOR: A “griffin” was “a creature in mythology with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle.” Also known in Greek Mythology as the “gryphon,” it was the protector of a god’s gold from mortal men. In Greek, “gryphon” means “protector of wealth.” In French “d’or” means “of gold,” one of the Gryffindor House colors. The gryffin is fitting, considering lions are characterized as brave and courageous and eagles are desrcibed as being noble birds, all traits of the Gryffindor House.God
