Hope you all like this. This is for two challenges.

Jg Rox's The Rival Ships Challenge! and I got Dumbledore/McGonagall. I did an implied Dumbledore/McGonagall, since the age difference is so big and scary, for me anyway.


AliceSpeak's Word/Phrase of the day. The words are 'flawless' and 'love'.

"She was a great student with a flawless record," Dumbledore said. "Though her sternness always seem to ruin any party and it was sad to see that she wasn't the friendliest of all the Gryffindor students but she did survive quiet a lot of things. Though she was very different than most of the students at the school I grew quite fond of her as the years passed and she finally left Hogwarts."

Dumbledore remembers when he danced with Professor McGonagall. She was elegant and graceful, she was stern and strick. Those were the things he loved about her.

"But Professor why do you always feel the need to protect Professor McGonagall, even when Professor McGonagall doesn't need help?" Harry asks.

Dumbledore laughs. "Her flawless record of not killing any soul, that was why I protected her and also because as I said before I am very fond of her."

"Okay, so do you like her Professor," Hermione questions Dumbledore.

Dumbledore smiles, "You can say I like her but that is all."

Many years later Harry still remembers that conversation he had with Dumbledore. It was strange to listen to how much Dumbledore cared for Professor McGonagall. Professor Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall were very close, so close in fact that you could say if they didn't have such a large difference in age they would have been lovers instead of student and teacher.

Hermione smiles sadly also remembering that one sad moment when they talked about Professor McGonagall. Dumbledore loved her and she did too, but they were never together and yet there were never apart. A love so strong that both of them wanted to stay by each other even though they couldn't stay by each other, forever and ever.

Hope you all enjoyed this.
