"If it weren't for McGonagall, I'm sure it would have taken me another six months, maybe longer before I was ready to change completely," Lucy said, the weight of her words really hitting her now. She had the professor to thank for pushing along her studies. This was something she had wanted for so long, it was strange to think it was actually happening. "I'm not entirely sure yet, what I'll be turning into. McGonagall says it has a lot to do with what your Patronus form is. I reckon' something like a deer, then."
She raked a hand through her hair, tugging the long tendrils to one side of her neck as she moved up higher on her bed. She took a slight breath before looking back to Branwen.
"I think McGonagall saw this coming- this takeover, or whatever you want to call it. I'd like to think she chose us to be able to do something about it. And Merlin, do I want to do something about it."
