Staff behaving badly
I own nothing, everything written is just for fun and not profit, although reviews are always welcomed.
This is set 5 years after the war and Hermione has been teaching transfiguration for the last 3 years and is head of Gryfindor, also on the staff are Harry (Quidditch) Sirius (Charms) and Remus (Dada) and obviously Potions is being taught by Severus.
Minerva was sat in her office when she heard two familiar voices arguing outside her office, she groaned and opened her door "That's enough" she said sternly "Honestly I could hear the pair of you down the corridor".
Hermione went in and sat down on one of the chairs in front of Minerva's desk "Minerva will you please tell this obnoxious man that just because his quidditch team are terrible it dose not give him the right to give them extra practice time especially when he knows that Gryfindor are practicing", and she gave Severus a filthy look.
Severus just glared back, "As she is aware" he spat "Due to Mr Adams injuries which by the way were caused by one of her precious Gryfindor's, Slytherin are actually in need of a new keeper which obviously means they need more pitch time".
Minerva looked at the two people sat in front of her and wondered why they had such animosity towards one another, yes Severus was by nature a snarky man but in the years following the war he had actually mellowed and was on speaking terms with most of the staff and was quite good friends
with Remus, Sirius and Harry, Hermione on the other hand had grown into a mature young adult who got along with everybody. "I expect better behavior from my staff, now the two of you will resolve this like the adults you're supposed to be!" she gave both of them one of her famous steely glares, "And further more if I hear that the pair of you have been acting like children then both of you will be on detention and Hogsmeade duties till the end of term, do I make myself clear?".
Hermione and Severus looked at each other and mumbled "Yes headmistress" and left the room, no sooner had they left when she heard them sniping at one another again.
She looked up at the picture on the opposite side of the room "Oh Albus whatever am I going to do with those two?",
Dumbledore looked down from his portrait, his blue eyes twinkling " You know Minnie I think it's time there was a new tradition at Hogwarts just for the staff", Minerva raised an eyebrow, Dumbledore continued "We should have a staff bonding night once a month compulsory for all staff to attend, and during these meetings they can play board games and things like that".
It was an interesting idea she thought and the staff would hate it which was always a bonus, she grinned evilly because what's the point of being headmistress if you can't have a little fun now and then at your teachers expense, so with that thought in mind she picked up her quill and wrote a new notice for the staffroom.
Staff Fun Night.
Starting on the 19th of September there will be a night of fun and games being held in the staffroom at 9pm. This is compulsory for all staff and will be held every 4 weeks to increase staff morale and encourage inter house camaraderie.
You may bring your own alcohol if you so desire.
Thanking you all for your cooperation and participation in advance.
Minerva Mcgonagal (Headmistress)
The next day in the staffroom all the staff were in uproar, "The woman's sick and twisted I tell you" ranted Sirius as he showed the notice to Remus.
"You know who's fault it is really don't you?" commented Harry, the others turned and looked at him in surprise "Hermione's and Severus's and their constant fondness for jumping down each others throats" .
"Makes sense to me" said Remus "But who knows it could be fun and what will be even better is the look on their faces when they realize that they have to spend an entire evening with each other being nice"
"Who has to be nice to who Remus?" asked Hermione as she wandered into the staffroom.
"You and Severus" he grinned and handed her the bit of parchment in his hands.
Severus came storming into the room slamming the door behind him, "Blasted annoying woman, worse than bloody Dumbledore she is, stupid ruddy games night" he was muttering to himself under his breath.
"Everything okay Sev?" asked Sirius
"Oh yeah every thing's just fine and dandy, there's nothing like being forced to take part in some stupid games night to make one happy as a pig in muck" Severus retorted.
"For goodness sake would you please shut up moaning and grow a pair!, it's only a few hours where the staff are expected to socialize and play happy families with one another, even you can manage that and afterwards you can slink off to the dungeons and be the miserable sod that we all know and love once again" snapped Hermione.
The entire staffroom just stopped what it was doing to look at Hermione and Severus who stood toe to toe glaring at each other.
Severus looked down at the girl, no scratch that he thought woman who had been the biggest pain in his side since she'd started working there a few years ago and gave her his trademark smirk, "Well thank you for that insightful speech little Miss Know It All, but for your information I've no need to grow a pair as you so eloquently put it! as I've all ready got a quite impressive set to begin with even if I do say so myself, although if you don't believe me you're more than welcome to check them out"
"No thanks! if I wanted to look at a something that's pink and disgusting I'd go down to Hagrids hut and play with the flobberworms" she retorted and with a flick of her hair she flounced out of the staffroom saying bye to Harry on the way and affectionately ruffling Remus's head as she passed.
Sirius laughed " You asked for that one mate if you asked me"
"Quiet you mongrel, I don't believe I asked for your opinion on the matter, now if anyone wants me I shall be in my lab making some potions for Poppy" replied Severus and resisting the urge to stick his tongue out at Sirius for his remark he swiftly left and made his way down to the dungeons.
