I don't get it. Was she possessed by Tom Riddle, or is she just worried about having had a part in the Basilisk attacks? And because of her worries she's suffering from migraines that she's seeing Dumbledore about. And she considers her cat form to be her true form? Why? Sorry for disturbing you, this is amazing and very cryptic. Please continue a story down this line, not just one chapter.

That was very engaging. I wish Minerva and Tom had actually gone to school together, it would have added just a little more controversy to the story. How could the lord of the dark really resist a person so in the light? Or at least trying to be...

Awesome. It was always evident that McGonagall was one of Dumble's pawns, one of his best controlled. Start em young and keep them forever. He did mold her into one of his "creatures" as she always obeyed him even when her conscious or even just her common sense told her something was wrong - like leaving Harry with the Dursleys and not doing a DAMN THING TO HELP HARRY FOR SIX YEARS.
Riddle was right as look what she ended up as: an uptight, bitter, unloved. old before her time woman who is rarely seen smiling (and only then slightly) and never heard to laugh, overworked because Dumbles passes on as much of the everyday running of the school work onto her so that he can see to his more important duties as Head of the Wizengamot and the ICW.
Too bad this is a one shot as it could show McGonagall's life, and regrets, through the years. I always got the feeling she was a woman of many regrets for the wrong choices made in the name of the Light, because once Dumble's has you in his grasp you don't escape, you just obey no matter how wrong he is or sadness he causes.
Voldemort may mark his followers physically with the snake and skull, but Dumbles marks his minions with psychological and emotional chains, unseen but always there and just as inescapable. McGonagall reminds me of an abused woman, always making excuses and denying the abuse but incapable of seeking help.
