I cannot put into words how utterly satisfying that was. I love the blend of somberness and sweet, witty vengeance.
"I agree with you, Dolores...It's much better when we can address our regrets directly." :)

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this before, because it's always been one of my favourites from your stories. The characterization is just perfect - Minerva's guilt over being unable to protect all the students, her refusal to acknowledge her injuries; Dolores's condescension towards her, and her deliberately naive and patronizing description of the year's happenings... Perfect. And that punch is so very satisfying!

Give it to her McGonagall!

And that type of characterization is why Minerva McGonagall is my absolute favorite character in the entire series. I can just see her doing this.

They did indeed broke all the rules. They took what everything was 'supposed to be' and so many stereotypes and beat them to death.
Umbridge deserved to be hit, especially by McGonagall. She's completely terrible. She's my most hated character of the series and this is just perfect. I hope that hurts, Dolores.

Go. Minerva ! One of the things I like about your writing is that every single character- regardless of age, sex, sexuality, religion, culture, background- feels "real" and three dimensional. I liked that you showed Minerva struggling to overcome her own grief and shock- "children didn't die". And umbridge was brilliant- as much as you can call a total *&7%$$ brilliant.

I'm speechless. That was beautiful and somber and satisfying - down to the very last word of the ending. I can never get enough of your writing!
