Author's/Artist's Notes: Many thanks to V, beta extraordinaire! And also to Beth H for running a great fest. The title and quotes in the story are from "To His Coy Mistress," by Andrew Marvell. There's so much fantastic Minerva fic out there, this was a bit daunting. I hope you like it, Kelly!

[info]beholder_mod: FIC: "Black Knight Moves Forward" for sigune

Recipient: [info]sigune
Author: [info]therealsnape
Title: Black Knight Moves Forward
Rating: PG-13
Pairings: Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape
Word Count: 9700
Summary: The Giant Wizard Chess is meant to protect the Philosopher’s Stone. But, as Severus finds out, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Author's Notes:
My marvellous beta, Kelly Chambliss, made this story so much better, as always.

All details on the various creatures in this story are based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander, 2001, Obscurus Books, 18a Diagon Alley, London, in association with Arthur A. Levine Books/Scholastic Press.

Without Mr. Scamander’s classic and unsurpassed work this story could not have been written. Any errors, however, remain my own. The experiment described in this story must never be attempted in a non-fictional environment.

[info]beholder_mod: ART: "Unspoken" for musamihi

Recipient: [info]musamihi
Artist: [info]sigune
Title: Unspoken
Rating: G
Pairing: Minerva McGonagall/Severus Snape
Media: Staedtler pens, red calligraphy ink (totally inappropriate for painting), grey ecoline, Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator for the frame
Warnings: incredible G-ness and utter worksafeness
Summary: Between Headmaster Snape and his Deputy Headmistress, what is essential remains unspoken.
Artist's Notes: One of the worst things about Harry's decision not to return to Hogwarts for his seventh year is that we only got a few minutes' confrontation between Headmaster Severus and Minerva. Augh! Here is my take on what we didn't see. I hope you like it.
I had great beta-help from C. Don't blame her for anything that looks awkward - that's totally my own fault.
NB: the strange thing they are sitting on is a Victorian conversation chair.
