'Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?'
‘Yes,’ said Harry.
‘You called her a liar?’
‘You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?’
Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, frowning at Harry. Then she said, ‘Have a biscuit, Potter.’
‘Have – what?’
‘Have a biscuit,’ she repeated impatiently, indicating a tartan tin lying on top of one of the piles of papers on her desk. ‘And sit down.’ —One of the best moments in OotP and the entire series
Who else remembers when Harry just assumed Oliver Wood was a stick McGonagall was going to beat him with.
Is it acceptable that I kind of have an AU in my brain where Marilla Cuthbert and Minerva McGonagall are bffs?
Because they totally would be.
They’d just sit on the Cuthbert’s porch in rocking chairs making sarcastic remarks about everyone in Avonlea. And it would be fabulous.
Is it sad that I giffed (is that even a word?) this solely for the sight of Gambon and Smith dancing and that lift/jump?
Yeah, no need to actually answer this. I already I know, lol.
If I ever had a chance to do it, I’d gif that too. Cause it’s too precious, we all know that.
A moment for Minerva's sarcasm:Minerva McGonagall: Well, usually when a person shakes their head, they mean 'no.' So unless Miss Edgecombe is using a form of sign language as yet unknown to humans
Minerva McGonagall: I wonder, how you can expect to gain an idea of my usual teaching methods if you continue to interrupt me? You see, I do not generally permit people to talk when I am talking.
Minerva McGonagall: I should have made my meaning plainer. He has achieved high marks in all Defense Against the Dark Arts tests set by a competent teacher.
Minerva McGonagall: Are you quite sure you wouldn't like a cough drop, Dolores?
