Minerva Fest Day 19 -- "Fighting the Good Fight" (Minerva, Griselda) Title: Fighting the Good Fight Author: Prompt Author:tetleythesecond Prompt:In Deathly Hallows, we see Minerva cast an Imperius, effortlessly and without a real need. I'd like to see that explored. How did she learn to cast Unforgivables as if they were simple cleaning charms? Why didn't she have a moral problem doing it? (Optional: Was she ever tried before the Wizengamot for casting an unforgivable?) Rating: PG-13 Word Count: 7,370 Characters and/or Pairings: Minerva McGonagall, Griselda Marchbanks, Pomona Sprout. Mention of Minerva/Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank Summary: Pomona knows that Minerva will come to regret her decision, but there's nothing she can do about it. So she calls on Professor Marchbanks for help. Warnings: none Disclaimer: "Harry Potter" belongs to J.K. Rowling and her legal licencees. In the section describing events in the Ravenclaw Common Room, I've followed Deathly Hallows as closely as possible. This means that several phrases and descriptions are quoted from the original. No plagiarism is intended. Author's Notes: My undying gratitude to my beta, K, for her excellent advice, encouraging words, and virtual hand-holding during a severe attack of Writer's Insecurity.
