Default 50 Brave Ficlets on the Tails of a Scottish Lioness 13+



Behold the tails of bravery and woe of one Minerva McGonagall, Gryffindor's own Mother Lion.

39 Transfigurations/ 7 OWLs




2. Avada Kedavra

Two flashes of green...the same emerald of his mother’s eyes

A boy becomes an orphan and the wizarding world was turned on its end. The fate of the Boy-Who-Lived rested on the decision of her and Dumbledore to hand him over to his muggle family.

A flash from a borrowed wand…

A Champion dies and Minerva watches his father fall apart as the Tri-Wizard Tourniment turns deadly once more. If only they had known that the cup was a portkey…that Mad-Eye wasn’t Mad-Eye.

Another green flash...

She was now head of the school. And her teacher, predecessor, long-term colleague and friend was gone. Another colleague seemingly a traitor.

A final attempt…

A murderous curse held off by a meager spell held cast by the same young man all grown. A true Gryffindor she was very proud of.


Who knew how two simple words could do so much in the course of less than two decades

1. Accio


Why did the transfiguration tome she wanted have to be on the top shelf?

The second year wasn’t fond of those ladders used to get up higher in the stacks than one can reach, she always had this feeling someone was just going to move it on her without her control. It had already happened once though it had been a stray spell that time. Moving the nearest one to where she needed it to be, the Gryffindor climbed up to the shelf where the book was only to find herself a bit off, reaching for the book beside her.

Just a little further….

Minerva still couldn’t reach and she was practically hanging off the ladder. She sighed when she realized she was going to have to get down and move the ladder before trying again. Reluctantly moving back down, she had briefly noticed a book floating down beside her but hadn’t registered it was the title she had been looking for until she found it being held out for her.

“You know….the summoning charm works really well with those pesky books,” the upperclassman mused as she took it, walking away laughing.

3. Braking Charm


Victory seemed so close.

Slytherin had a slight lead, but it was clear that the seekers were on the trail of the ever-elusive snitch. One grasp of the golden treasure would be more than enough to push the lions over the top. Minerva was doing her part, the young woman zooming around after the quaffle, helping pass it among her team members or shooting if she had a chance.

A roar of excitement drew attention to the seekers once more from players and crowd alike. Even Minerva’s gaze momentarily shot towards the epicenter of action. But in the confusion, one of the bludgers threatened to steal the show from. One moment she was heading back after the quaffle, the next the chaser was busy testing out her broom’s safety measures. It all turned into a blur as it became too much for the young woman, the Gryffindor 7th year blacking out into oblivion.

And Slytherin won the match.

5. Colloportus


Locked up tight.

And only the ghosts could manage to get inside.

It was like the very castle felt like no one else besides Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was worthy of the head office anymore. In some ways Minerva was grateful, the woman quite unprepared to step into his shoes permanently despite being deputy for so many years and filling in for him whenever the Board or Ministry removed him temporarily.

She couldn’t replace him.

And the office, or at least the gargoyle…seemed to know that.

Minerva was just the next person in line…cut off from the looming history of the job by the door. So she kept to he own well-worn office, no magic barring her way in judgment nor failing her from entering it all of a sudden.

“No gossipy portraits either.”

Silver lining.

7. Confundus


She looked very intent.

I found myself amused as I watched her work on her exam amongst the rest of her class. Each student in the mixed class was in various levels of anxiety, the Gryffindor one of the most attentive and seemingly concerned as to her answers. It was hardly her OWLS or NEWTS, yet the young girl leaned extra close to her test parchment, her eagle quill scribbling and scratching fervently on the page.

Minerva McGonagall.


My best student.

And judging by the grades in her other classes, my subject was by far her best in return. Which was why I was confused by the worry etching her youthful face. I had no concern she would do well, doubting even the hardest question could throw her off.

Perhaps confidence in her work was a subject she needed to master.

9. Disapparate


“Destination…Determination…Deliberation.”

The ministry worker’s voice droned on and on during the apparition lesson. The ability to transport oneself, and possibly others eventually, nearly seamlessly from one location to another within a short period of time was bloody brilliant. It was also the mark of nearing adulthood and Minerva was no less excited than the rest of her fellow students, even if she didn’t show it as much. Like right now when she was trying to not look like she was ready to collapse.

How were they supposed to be focused enough to practice it themselves if the instructor put them to sleep?

What she wouldn’t give for some tea and ginger snaps right now to give her a boost of energy.

She had to learn this!

11. Expecto Patronum


“Mirror of a person’s personality my foot.”

Her spectral companion had been a tabby cat like her animangus form for as long as she had been able to cast it. She was quite proud of it then and it gave her no less a source of comfort later on when it was used to save her life and the lives of others.

However the first time Minerva spotted a ghostly figure not her own with a prickly voice that tested her patience, she was flabbergasted.

“That toad!!”

No…they were not alike. In no way, shape or form was that true. Magic had gotten all confused this time around. Minerva almost wished she could set one cat upon the other since she couldn’t do what she actually wanted to Umbridge.

Patronus’ had a mind of their own after all….right?

13. Flagrate


Even as Filch went to retrieve the supplies to clean up the marks and the other staff dispersed, Minerva couldn’t help but let her eyes linger on the blood-red message. The letters were painted, but they might as well have been made of flames for all they cut to the quick.

Enemies of the heir beware…

The Chamber of Secrets has been opened

She hadn’t been around the last time, only Albus had and she had been trying to read her colleague since the first happenings. However, he was now out of the mix due to Malfoy. Hagrid was easier, the half-giant seemingly rattled as well by the situation. Something to look into further.

A sound caused her to pull away from her thoughts and Minerva turned, have expecting Potter and Weasley to have tried sneaking back. Alas it was nothing. And she had more pressing matters to attend to than staring at the wall.

The school was in danger.

15. Hurling Hex


What in Merlin’s beard was going on?

One moment the game was happening, and Gryffindor looked as if it finally had a chance at winning with the way Potter and the rest were playing. The next…the new seeker was flopping around like a fish out of water on his broom.

Minerva watched intently from the staff stands, debating what to do and she clearly wasn’t the only one of her colleagues. Something had to be done or see her lion tossed from his broom. The very one she had purchased.

And then as sudden as it had begun… it stopped.

17. Imperio

“Albus, you can’t seriously condone his actions!”

The Unforgivables…being taught…and DEMONSTRATED! Here at Hogwarts.

“I trust Mad-Eye not to go overboard, Minerva,” the headmaster remarked. “And no one was harmed.”

“No one was harmed?! Mr. Longbottom doesn’t need reminders of what happened to his parents. Nor Mr. Potter his own.” Granted she’d seen far more a reaction from the other lion than the Boy Who Lived.

“At ease, Minerva. It is done and it will not be repeated. Lemon drop?"

The transfiguration professor answered by turning and storming out of his office. The man could be so infuriating at times.

19. Jelly Legs


UMMPHH!

The thirteen-year-old collapsed down on the stairs after struggling the stay upright. Her legs having gone all wobbly when the stone had started to move. Such a pain! Magical stairs were one thing, but did they really have to move all on their own and catch one randomly off guard?

“Haha!! The lassie fell down!” the annoying voice of the resident poltergeist teased as he swooped in to bother her further. Minerva swung her arms to block despite her inability to do Peeves any harm.

“Aye…” she remarked, “but that doesn’t make me yer prisoner.” The Gryffindor digging to retrieve her wand to take aim at the specter.

“Feisty one…eh?” Peeves cooed with a maniacal laugh, bouncing about in dare.

Red sparks answered him, chasing the poltergeist away.

21. Langlock


It sounded like the Gryffindor Common Room with for all the loud voices that came from the classroom she was headed towards. And upon entering it only got louder, her presence as their new professor not quieting them at all.

“Quiet down please,” she instructed after clearing her throat to get their attention. A few responded, though others seemed to only ignore her. A couple of the students even appeared to do so out of spite and troublemaking. Minerva fought the urge to answer with a smart spell that gave them no option but she pulled her hand away from her wand.
Must not use magic on students.

“Anyone still speaking in 2 minutes will find themselves learning human transfiguration first hand,” she remarked just as loud and clear, leaving the threat vague. That got their attention and the room was suddenly quiet, garnering a slightly raised eyebrow from the young woman.

It wasn’t like she meant it.

They just needed to know not to tickle the dragon.

23. Levicorpus

Those two.

Minerva swore most of her grey hairs were from a certain duo of Gryffindors…and the Slytherin they loved to torment. Five years of this! And she had made the mistake of thinking they might be done for the term, given that OWLS were in full swing. But no…no. There she was casually walking through the halls when the student came racing towards her to get her attention as the nearest professor and their head of house.

“Put him DOWN…Mr. Potter!” she ordered, a scowl on her face to make sure the young man in question was well aware she meant business. And Merlin help him should he take that to mean to drop Snape where he hung upside down by his ankle. Of course, she and Slughorn would be commiserating this evening regardless, the longstanding feud a weird way of getting the Slytherin and Gryffindor heads to be the most civil to each other.

Albus probably got a kick out of that. But then again…

Misery did love company.

25. Mobilicorpus


They kept coming in.

Some on their own accord, others floating along because of unconsciousness or injury.

Or worse…death.

There were so many of them. Too many of them. Especially students that she had hoped could be spared by the dangers of the war a little while longer until the war had literally come right to the doors of the school. Minerva herself was a little worse to wear but she wasn’t letting herself show it if at all possible. She would go down with the castle if she had to, but she owed the cause her best. Including the transfigured statues currently on guard as the seize fire was in effect.

Until she was among those floating dead.

Merlin help Riddle and his forces. They attacked HER school and HER students.

They would pay.

27. Muffliato

She sat, her back to the wall, awaiting her contact. Minerva had hit a brick wall with her case, unmovable unlike the one at the Leaky, and she hoped the man had something to help bring it in a new direction.

The man in question soon weaved cautiously through the crowd to come to her table, sitting down silently, his gaze too busy flicking around to see if anyone was watching them to focus on her right away.

“You said you wanted to meet me…” she said, not using names to keep it simple and untraceable.

“And you said you needed to find the Griff…which I did.”

“Excellent…feel free to share," she pressured, her wand absently moving beneath the table as she awaited a response, casting protection around their corner. No one else needed to know.
