Can you imagine how differently their lives would鈥檝e gone if Ron, in trying to transfigure Scabbers, had actually transfigured him back into a human?Just take a moment to imagine McGonagall鈥檚 reaction if Peter Pettigrew had abruptly appeared in her classroom from Ronald Weasley鈥檚 rat.Take a moment. Or if Ron had fucked it up a little worse and couldn鈥檛 get 鈥楽cabbers鈥 back and McGonagall had take him to disenchant him and next thing we know there鈥檚 a naked Peter Pettigrew sitting on McGonagall鈥檚 desk and the kids in that class learn six new swear words, a hex they will never dare to use, and a fear of Minerva McGonagall鈥檚 wrath that will be with them until the day they die. Ten and twenty years later first years are being pulled aside and warned never mess around in Transfiguration seriously the last time a kid mucked something up in that class Professor McGonagall used two semi-legal hexes, took down a Death Eater and sabotaged the rise of the Dark Lord before Potter had time to get his wand out. What most of Hogwarts learned first on that otherwise-unexceptionable day was that Professor McGonagall could sure scream loud. Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms 5th-year Charms class was close enough to catch the full effect, and the door had been left open besides; en masse the students recoiled with shock and a miscast Hiccuping Charm broke one of the windows (out which the entire flock of ravens they were practicing on escaped to the Forbidden Forest where they only had to worry about centaurs, rather than annoying young humans with wands). Up in the Divination Tower, Sibyl Trelawny preened over her foresight to have warned her students of an unprecedented catastrophe likely to occur before the hour was out. Out in Greenhouse Five, a NEWT-level Herbology class looked up in puzzlement, and most of them were subsequently bitten by the Venomous Tentaculae they were attempting to propagate. It does not do to ignore a Venomous Tentacula when you鈥檙e prodding at its intimate parts with a cotton ball held in tweezers, so the class was cancelled while two-thirds of the students headed for the infirmary and the rest of them headed into the castle because if they stayed with the Venomous Tentaculae they鈥檇 be outnumbered, and nobody wants that. And down in the dungeons, Professor Snape turned away from comparing Lee Jordan鈥檚 Pepper-Up Potion to spoiled cream at what sounded like a woman screaming from the entrance hall. At the second scream, he ordered the class to remain where they were and behave, sweeping out of the room just in time to miss Theodore Nott suddenly jumping up and yelping as if someone had put a crocodile heart down the back of his robes. Fred Weasley stepped back from the unfortunate Slytherin, shared a smirk with his twin, and stuck his head out the door to make sure Snape had rounded the corner before leading the way out of the classroom. - Back in the Transfiguration classroom, about four minutes ago, it had started innocently enough. Ron Weasley, possessed of a broken wand and a lurking suspicion that most of the family鈥檚 magical talent had been soaked up by his siblings before he was around to get any, had attempted to turn his pet rat, Scabbers, into a teacup. Scabbers had not become a teacup. Scabbers, blast his useless furry little backside, had become a furry, vaguely teacup-shaped monstrosity out of which absolutely no one would have been tempted to drink, and to make matters worse, he still had a tail. It was moving. Harry was hiding a smile behind his hand. Dean and Seamus weren鈥檛 even trying to hide, elbowing each other and laughing. Parvati and Lavender were looking with disgust and horror at either Scabbers or him, and Hermione was opening her mouth, no doubt ready to tell him聽exactly what he鈥檇 done wrong. Which only made it worse that he really thought he鈥檇 done everything right this time. He snatched Scabbers off the desk (eww, the base of the cup had the same texture as rat feet) and turned away from Hermione. He made the wand movement again, picturing in his mind the way McGonagall had demonstrated it. 鈥淓rreverto.鈥 鈥淓rreverto. Erreverto.聽Erreverto.鈥 It didn鈥檛 work. It didn鈥檛 work when Professor McGonagall stopped by and gave Hermione two points for Gryffindor for getting the spell perfect in both directions. It didn鈥檛 work when Harry made his successful transfiguration (Ron looked; the pattern was a little bit furry but it was definitely a teacup). Ron鈥檚 lips formed the shape of a word that would鈥檝e made his mother box his ears had she heard it and attempted the reverse transfiguration, which didn鈥檛 work either. Finally, faced not only with the indignity of failure but the threat of Scabbers being stuck like that, he鈥檇 gone up to Professor McGonagall鈥檚 desk. 鈥淯m, Professor?鈥 Professor McGonagall looked up from the paper she was grading and looked from him to the squirming teacup. 鈥淧roblems, Mr. Weasley?鈥 鈥淯m, yeah, Professor. I can鈥檛 get it to work in either direction and it鈥檚 not fair to Scabbers to make him stay as a teacup just because I can鈥檛 do a spell right and can you maybe 鈥β?鈥 鈥淚 suppose so, Mr. Weasley,鈥 she said, and waved her wand in the聽exact manner Ron had been doing all along. Nothing happened. Professor McGonagall looked very, very puzzled. 鈥淣ow that鈥檚 odd,鈥 she said softly. As one, the other students rose from their seats and quietly moved closer. She did not attempt the transfiguration in the other direction. Instead, she made a complex motion with her wand and murmured an incantation that possibly only Hermione recognized. The teacup squeaked. Professor McGonagall looked more puzzled than ever, and made a sweeping wand movement that ended with a sharp jab and uttered, 鈥淎rcanum聽finite!鈥 And there was a loud bang, and there was a pale, pudgy, and very naked man sprawled out on her desk, and she jumped back hard enough to knock her chair into the wall and聽screamed. - Having taught a particularly rigorous course of magical study to children and teens for quite some time now, Minerva McGonagall had become accustomed to certain things. Students who didn鈥檛 listen. Students who did rude things to the mice when they thought she wasn鈥檛 looking. Students who accidentally turned a frog or a raven into a flock of starlings or a school of strange slimy South American fish (and tried to solve the immediate problem by filling the classroom with two feet of water, neglecting to consider the gap under the door). Students who tried to transfigure their noses into a more appealing shape and wound up in the hospital wing regrowing their nostrils. Naked men on her desk was something Minerva McGonagall had never had an occasion to get used to. What made it worse was that she recognized this one, and he鈥檇 been dead for more than a decade. Inferius!聽was her first thought, followed shortly thereafter by聽Animagus,聽which collided with聽Peter Pettigrew!聽and produced the utterly horrifying thought of聽what if all four of them were Animagi? which didn鈥檛 bear thinking about at all, so her brain jumped to聽if he wasn鈥檛 killed by a Dark Wizard then why didn鈥檛 he say so?聽and realized there was only one possible explanation why, and about that time her eyes registered that parts of Peter Pettigrew she really doesn鈥檛 want to know about were flopping about in front of her face, and she was screaming as she jumped back. The flow of invective which followed somehow failed to surprise her one bit. Some part of her registered, peripherally, the shocked faces of her students, but most of her attention was directed at Peter Pettigrew, who at very least faked his own death and at worst framed Sirius Black and聽if Black didn鈥檛 betray the Potters then who 鈥 did.聽And the words poured out of her, filthy English and filthier Latin while Pettigrew squirmed on the table, his face rage and guilt and fear and something shifty and contemptible, and he turned to look at the stunned students and lunged for Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand. - Severus Snape had reached the Entrance Hall by the time the scream died away and the invective replaced it. He almost smirked, amid the alarm; of all the things he鈥檇 never expected to hear from Minerva McGonagall 鈥 he took the stairs two at a time, still not noticing the students who followed. He did notice the Herbology class, which had stopped on the way to the Infirmary and were staring transfixed in the direction of the Transfiguration classroom, but pushed his way through them, getting Venomous Tentacula pollen all over his robes in the process. From the other end of the corridor came Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms class, with Professor Flitwick bringing up the rear and pushing his way between students. - Ron looked stunned as the man who鈥檇 been his pet rat snatched the wand from his hand; Professor McGonagal鈥檚 expression shifted to one beyond fury and when the entire class recoiled, it wasn鈥檛 from the naked man with the wand. 鈥淟aedo!鈥 Minerva McGonagall roared. - Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand cast a Splintering Curse many years beyond its rightful owner鈥檚 abilities, and it did Peter Pettigrew the poor favor of eliminating the door, which might have slowed him down a bit. - Severus Snape flailed and skidded to a halt as the Transfiguration classroom鈥檚 door shattered. He stepped back just in time, and stared, jaw dropped in shock, as a naked man he recognized from his school days flew past him and bellyflopped against the wall, bounced, and collapsed to the ground just in time to avoid the 鈥淓xitium!鈥 which followed and vaporized an impresive chunk of the castle鈥檚 stone wall. Fred and George and Lee Jordan, determined to stay at the front of the crowd, had been pushed almost against Professor Snape by their fellow Potions classmates and some pollen-coated Hufflepuffs. Fred squirmed aside hastily as Professor McGonagall appeared in the doorway, the look on her face so utterly livid that Professors Snape and Flitwick both reflexively stepped back. Snape tripped over George鈥檚 foot and fell against a knot of Hufflepuffs, releasing another cloud of pollen and knocking them backwards. Pettigrew saw his opportunity and took it, scrambling to his feet, stumbling sideways, and launching himself towards the gap. And Minerva McGonagall made a thrust with her wand and said, 鈥淧erdo.鈥 In the very loud silence which followed, Filius Flitwick squeaked, 鈥淭he Splinching Charm, Minerva?鈥 She might鈥檝e looked embarrassed for a moment, and then she smiled as she looked down at Pettigrew, who lay on his belly, his arms and legs lying akimbo some distance away. 鈥淯northodox,鈥 she said, 鈥渂ut useful in a pinch. If someone would inform the Headmaster, and send an owl to the Ministry鈥-not Fudge, not Crouch, someone competent鈥-Shacklebolt, perhaps. Students, return to your classrooms, please. Mr. Weasley, I鈥檓 very sorry, but I do believe it鈥檚 impossible to return you your rat. However, the zero I was going to have to give you for the day鈥檚 work is entirely undeserved, as you were not transfiguring a normal rat. You may make the lesson up any time this week.鈥 - The story was, of course, much embellished by the time it reached all the students. Versions of it had the intruder peppering Snape with a Glitter Hex or transfiguring Ron鈥檚 rat into a pair of boxers, and people had to be disabused of the notion that it had been Voldemort who鈥檇 been hiding as a rat all this time. Snape gave both Weasley twins detention for tripping him, and took forty-seven points total from Gryffindor over the next few weeks for various pretend-subtle pollen references. Kingsley Shacklebolt showed up with a team of Aurors in time to meet Professor Dumbledore; the Wizengamot launched an investigation into the events surrounding the Potters鈥 murder; the results turned into a scandal which saw the release of Sirius Black and the forced resignation of both Director Bartemious Crouch and Minister Cornelius Fudge. Director of Magical Law Enforcement Amelia Bones was confirmed as Minister of Magic shortly thereafte, and the Daily Prophet reported that Sirius Black (鈥淕odfather to the Boy-Who-Lived!鈥 鈥淔ramed, Abandoned, Condemned to Living Hell!鈥 鈥淗eart-Wrenching: His Release In Pictures, Page 17!鈥) was considering applying for a teaching position at Hogwarts, 鈥渂ut just for a year, I鈥檝e been cursed enough for one lifetime.鈥 (鈥淭he聽Prophet reminds its readers that the so-called 鈥渃urse鈥 on a certain Hogwarts teaching position is almost certainly a mere string of coincidences.鈥) And, Minerva thought with relish some months later, it was almost three weeks before anyone attempted messing around in her class. A personal record. I鈥檝e probably reblogged this before but I鈥檓 going to do it again right now I think this is literally the best au this entire fandom has produced I鈥檝e only seen this legendary bit of writing in memes and screenshots. I feel so blessed to see it in person. Beautiful, simply beautiful! Reblogging my own post because a) it鈥檚 my damn horn and I鈥檒l blow it if I want to, and b) I just (finally!) cross-posted this to Archive Of Our Own, so if anybody wants to go read it over there, here it is. @deadcatwithaflamethrower My only complaint is that Theodore Nott and Fred Weasely wouldn鈥檛 be in the same Potions class. *is pedantic* *reblogging because now you can bookmark it on AO3*: deadcatwithaflamethrower: hebic: kyraneko: balencia: kitrazzle: pissedoffweasley: wizardingheadcanon: kyraneko: elidyce: thatgirlonstage: fuckyeahdeathlyhallows: sirlestrange: #that is a human as a rat as a cup That was a long 12 years for Wormtail.

He stepped back just in time, and stared, jaw dropped in shock, as a naked man he recognized from his school days flew past him and bellyflopped against the wall, bounced, and collapsed to the ground just in time to avoid the 鈥淓xitium!鈥 which followed and vaporized an impresive chunk of the castle鈥檚 stone wall. Fred and George and Lee Jordan, determined to stay at the front of the crowd, had been pushed almost against Professor Snape by their fellow Potions classmates and some pollen-coated Hufflepuffs. Fred squirmed aside hastily as Professor McGonagall appeared in the doorway, the look on her face so utterly livid that Professors Snape and Flitwick both reflexively stepped back. Snape tripped over George鈥檚 foot and fell against a knot of Hufflepuffs, releasing another cloud of pollen and knocking them backwards. Pettigrew saw his opportunity and took it, scrambling to his feet, stumbling sideways, and launching himself towards the gap. And Minerva McGonagall made a thrust with her wand and said, 鈥淧erdo.鈥 In the very loud silence which followed, Filius Flitwick squeaked, 鈥淭he Splinching Charm, Minerva?鈥 She might鈥檝e looked embarrassed for a moment, and then she smiled as she looked down at Pettigrew, who lay on his belly, his arms and legs lying akimbo some distance away. 鈥淯northodox,鈥 she said, 鈥渂ut useful in a pinch. If someone would inform the Headmaster, and send an owl to the Ministry鈥-not Fudge, not Crouch, someone competent鈥-Shacklebolt, perhaps. Students, return to your classrooms, please. Mr. Weasley, I鈥檓 very sorry, but I do believe it鈥檚 impossible to return you your rat. However, the zero I was going to have to give you for the day鈥檚 work is entirely undeserved, as you were not transfiguring a normal rat. You may make the lesson up any time this week.鈥 - The story was, of course, much embellished by the time it reached all the students. Versions of it had the intruder peppering Snape with a Glitter Hex or transfiguring Ron鈥檚 rat into a pair of boxers, and people had to be disabused of the notion that it had been Voldemort who鈥檇 been hiding as a rat all this time. Snape gave both Weasley twins detention for tripping him, and took forty-seven points total from Gryffindor over the next few weeks for various pretend-subtle pollen references. Kingsley Shacklebolt showed up with a team of Aurors in time to meet Professor Dumbledore; the Wizengamot launched an investigation into the events surrounding the Potters鈥 murder; the results turned into a scandal which saw the release of Sirius Black and the forced resignation of both Director Bartemious Crouch and Minister Cornelius Fudge. Director of Magical Law Enforcement Amelia Bones was confirmed as Minister of Magic shortly thereafte, and the Daily Prophet reported that Sirius Black (鈥淕odfather to the Boy-Who-Lived!鈥 鈥淔ramed, Abandoned, Condemned to Living Hell!鈥 鈥淗eart-Wrenching: His Release In Pictures, Page 17!鈥) was considering applying for a teaching position at Hogwarts, 鈥渂ut just for a year, I鈥檝e been cursed enough for one lifetime.鈥 (鈥淭he聽Prophet reminds its readers that the so-called 鈥渃urse鈥 on a certain Hogwarts teaching position is almost certainly a mere string of coincidences.鈥) And, Minerva thought with relish some months later, it was almost three weeks before anyone attempted messing around in her class. A personal record.

rmh8402: pegasusdragontiger: kyraneko: balencia: kitrazzle: pissedoffweasley: wizardingheadcanon: kyraneko: elidyce: thatgirlonstage: fuckyeahdeathlyhallows: sirlestrange: #that is a human as a rat as a cup That was a long 12 years for Wormtail. Can you imagine how differently their lives would鈥檝e gone if Ron, in trying to transfigure Scabbers, had actually transfigured him back into a human?Just take a moment to imagine McGonagall鈥檚 reaction if Peter Pettigrew had abruptly appeared in her classroom from Ronald Weasley鈥檚 rat.Take a moment. Or if Ron had fucked it up a little worse and couldn鈥檛 get 鈥楽cabbers鈥 back and McGonagall had take him to disenchant him and next thing we know there鈥檚 a naked Peter Pettigrew sitting on McGonagall鈥檚 desk and the kids in that class learn six new swear words, a hex they will never dare to use, and a fear of Minerva McGonagall鈥檚 wrath that will be with them until the day they die. Ten and twenty years later first years are being pulled aside and warned never mess around in Transfiguration seriously the last time a kid mucked something up in that class Professor McGonagall used two semi-legal hexes, took down a Death Eater and sabotaged the rise of the Dark Lord before Potter had time to get his wand out. What most of Hogwarts learned first on that otherwise-unexceptionable day was that Professor McGonagall could sure scream loud. Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms 5th-year Charms class was close enough to catch the full effect, and the door had been left open besides; en masse the students recoiled with shock and a miscast Hiccuping Charm broke one of the windows (out which the entire flock of ravens they were practicing on escaped to the Forbidden Forest where they only had to worry about centaurs, rather than annoying young humans with wands). Up in the Divination Tower, Sibyl Trelawny preened over her foresight to have warned her students of an unprecedented catastrophe likely to occur before the hour was out. Out in Greenhouse Five, a NEWT-level Herbology class looked up in puzzlement, and most of them were subsequently bitten by the Venomous Tentaculae they were attempting to propagate. It does not do to ignore a Venomous Tentacula when you鈥檙e prodding at its intimate parts with a cotton ball held in tweezers, so the class was cancelled while two-thirds of the students headed for the infirmary and the rest of them headed into the castle because if they stayed with the Venomous Tentaculae they鈥檇 be outnumbered, and nobody wants that. And down in the dungeons, Professor Snape turned away from comparing Lee Jordan鈥檚 Pepper-Up Potion to spoiled cream at what sounded like a woman screaming from the entrance hall. At the second scream, he ordered the class to remain where they were and behave, sweeping out of the room just in time to miss Theodore Nott suddenly jumping up and yelping as if someone had put a crocodile heart down the back of his robes. Fred Weasley stepped back from the unfortunate Slytherin, shared a smirk with his twin, and stuck his head out the door to make sure Snape had rounded the corner before leading the way out of the classroom. - Back in the Transfiguration classroom, about four minutes ago, it had started innocently enough. Ron Weasley, possessed of a broken wand and a lurking suspicion that most of the family鈥檚 magical talent had been soaked up by his siblings before he was around to get any, had attempted to turn his pet rat, Scabbers, into a teacup. Scabbers had not become a teacup. Scabbers, blast his useless furry little backside, had become a furry, vaguely teacup-shaped monstrosity out of which absolutely no one would have been tempted to drink, and to make matters worse, he still had a tail. It was moving. Harry was hiding a smile behind his hand. Dean and Seamus weren鈥檛 even trying to hide, elbowing each other and laughing. Parvati and Lavender were looking with disgust and horror at either Scabbers or him, and Hermione was opening her mouth, no doubt ready to tell him聽exactly what he鈥檇 done wrong. Which only made it worse that he really thought he鈥檇 done everything right this time. He snatched Scabbers off the desk (eww, the base of the cup had the same texture as rat feet) and turned away from Hermione. He made the wand movement again, picturing in his mind the way McGonagall had demonstrated it. 鈥淓rreverto.鈥 鈥淓rreverto. Erreverto.聽Erreverto.鈥 It didn鈥檛 work. It didn鈥檛 work when Professor McGonagall stopped by and gave Hermione two points for Gryffindor for getting the spell perfect in both directions. It didn鈥檛 work when Harry made his successful transfiguration (Ron looked; the pattern was a little bit furry but it was definitely a teacup). Ron鈥檚 lips formed the shape of a word that would鈥檝e made his mother box his ears had she heard it and attempted the reverse transfiguration, which didn鈥檛 work either. Finally, faced not only with the indignity of failure but the threat of Scabbers being stuck like that, he鈥檇 gone up to Professor McGonagall鈥檚 desk. 鈥淯m, Professor?鈥 Professor McGonagall looked up from the paper she was grading and looked from him to the squirming teacup. 鈥淧roblems, Mr. Weasley?鈥 鈥淯m, yeah, Professor. I can鈥檛 get it to work in either direction and it鈥檚 not fair to Scabbers to make him stay as a teacup just because I can鈥檛 do a spell right and can you maybe 鈥β?鈥 鈥淚 suppose so, Mr. Weasley,鈥 she said, and waved her wand in the聽exact manner Ron had been doing all along. Nothing happened. Professor McGonagall looked very, very puzzled. 鈥淣ow that鈥檚 odd,鈥 she said softly. As one, the other students rose from their seats and quietly moved closer. She did not attempt the transfiguration in the other direction. Instead, she made a complex motion with her wand and murmured an incantation that possibly only Hermione recognized. The teacup squeaked. Professor McGonagall looked more puzzled than ever, and made a sweeping wand movement that ended with a sharp jab and uttered, 鈥淎rcanum聽finite!鈥 And there was a loud bang, and there was a pale, pudgy, and very naked man sprawled out on her desk, and she jumped back hard enough to knock her chair into the wall and聽screamed. - Having taught a particularly rigorous course of magical study to children and teens for quite some time now, Minerva McGonagall had become accustomed to certain things. Students who didn鈥檛 listen. Students who did rude things to the mice when they thought she wasn鈥檛 looking. Students who accidentally turned a frog or a raven into a flock of starlings or a school of strange slimy South American fish (and tried to solve the immediate problem by filling the classroom with two feet of water, neglecting to consider the gap under the door). Students who tried to transfigure their noses into a more appealing shape and wound up in the hospital wing regrowing their nostrils. Naked men on her desk was something Minerva McGonagall had never had an occasion to get used to. What made it worse was that she recognized this one, and he鈥檇 been dead for more than a decade. Inferius!聽was her first thought, followed shortly thereafter by聽Animagus,聽which collided with聽Peter Pettigrew!聽and produced the utterly horrifying thought of聽what if all four of them were Animagi? which didn鈥檛 bear thinking about at all, so her brain jumped to聽if he wasn鈥檛 killed by a Dark Wizard then why didn鈥檛 he say so?聽and realized there was only one possible explanation why, and about that time her eyes registered that parts of Peter Pettigrew she really doesn鈥檛 want to know about were flopping about in front of her face, and she was screaming as she jumped back. The flow of invective which followed somehow failed to surprise her one bit. Some part of her registered, peripherally, the shocked faces of her students, but most of her attention was directed at Peter Pettigrew, who at very least faked his own death and at worst framed Sirius Black and聽if Black didn鈥檛 betray the Potters then who 鈥 did.聽And the words poured out of her, filthy English and filthier Latin while Pettigrew squirmed on the table, his face rage and guilt and fear and something shifty and contemptible, and he turned to look at the stunned students and lunged for Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand. - Severus Snape had reached the Entrance Hall by the time the scream died away and the invective replaced it. He almost smirked, amid the alarm; of all the things he鈥檇 never expected to hear from Minerva McGonagall 鈥 he took the stairs two at a time, still not noticing the students who followed. He did notice the Herbology class, which had stopped on the way to the Infirmary and were staring transfixed in the direction of the Transfiguration classroom, but pushed his way through them, getting Venomous Tentacula pollen all over his robes in the process. From the other end of the corridor came Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms class, with Professor Flitwick bringing up the rear and pushing his way between students. - Ron looked stunned as the man who鈥檇 been his pet rat snatched the wand from his hand; Professor McGonagal鈥檚 expression shifted to one beyond fury and when the entire class recoiled, it wasn鈥檛 from the naked man with the wand. 鈥淟aedo!鈥 Minerva McGonagall roared. - Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand cast a Splintering Curse many years beyond its rightful owner鈥檚 abilities, and it did Peter Pettigrew the poor favor of eliminating the door, which might have slowed him down a bit. - Severus Snape flailed and skidded to a halt as the Transfiguration classroom鈥檚 door shattered. He stepped back just in time, and stared, jaw dropped in shock, as a naked man he recognized from his school days flew past him and bellyflopped against the wall, bounced, and collapsed to the ground just in time to avoid the 鈥淓xitium!鈥 which followed and vaporized an impresive chunk of the castle鈥檚 stone wall. Fred and George and Lee Jordan, determined to stay at the front of the crowd, had been pushed almost against Professor Snape by their fellow Potions classmates and some pollen-coated Hufflepuffs. Fred squirmed aside hastily as Professor McGonagall appeared in the doorway, the look on her face so utterly livid that Professors Snape and Flitwick both reflexively stepped back. Snape tripped over George鈥檚 foot and fell against a knot of Hufflepuffs, releasing another cloud of pollen and knocking them backwards. Pettigrew saw his opportunity and took it, scrambling to his feet, stumbling sideways, and launching himself towards the gap. And Minerva McGonagall made a thrust with her wand and said, 鈥淧erdo.鈥 In the very loud silence which followed, Filius Flitwick squeaked, 鈥淭he Splinching Charm, Minerva?鈥 She might鈥檝e looked embarrassed for a moment, and then she smiled as she looked down at Pettigrew, who lay on his belly, his arms and legs lying akimbo some distance away. 鈥淯northodox,鈥 she said, 鈥渂ut useful in a pinch. If someone would inform the Headmaster, and send an owl to the Ministry鈥-not Fudge, not Crouch, someone competent鈥-Shacklebolt, perhaps. Students, return to your classrooms, please. Mr. Weasley, I鈥檓 very sorry, but I do believe it鈥檚 impossible to return you your rat. However, the zero I was going to have to give you for the day鈥檚 work is entirely undeserved, as you were not transfiguring a normal rat. You may make the lesson up any time this week.鈥 - The story was, of course, much embellished by the time it reached all the students. Versions of it had the intruder peppering Snape with a Glitter Hex or transfiguring Ron鈥檚 rat into a pair of boxers, and people had to be disabused of the notion that it had been Voldemort who鈥檇 been hiding as a rat all this time. Snape gave both Weasley twins detention for tripping him, and took forty-seven points total from Gryffindor over the next few weeks for various pretend-subtle pollen references. Kingsley Shacklebolt showed up with a team of Aurors in time to meet Professor Dumbledore; the Wizengamot launched an investigation into the events surrounding the Potters鈥 murder; the results turned into a scandal which saw the release of Sirius Black and the forced resignation of both Director Bartemious Crouch and Minister Cornelius Fudge. Director of Magical Law Enforcement Amelia Bones was confirmed as Minister of Magic shortly thereafte, and the Daily Prophet reported that Sirius Black (鈥淕odfather to the Boy-Who-Lived!鈥 鈥淔ramed, Abandoned, Condemned to Living Hell!鈥 鈥淗eart-Wrenching: His Release In Pictures, Page 17!鈥) was considering applying for a teaching position at Hogwarts, 鈥渂ut just for a year, I鈥檝e been cursed enough for one lifetime.鈥 (鈥淭he聽Prophet reminds its readers that the so-called 鈥渃urse鈥 on a certain Hogwarts teaching position is almost certainly a mere string of coincidences.鈥) And, Minerva thought with relish some months later, it was almost three weeks before anyone attempted messing around in her class.

YESSSSSSS!聽 Love it!! : rmh8402: pegasusdragontiger: kyraneko: balencia: kitrazzle: pissedoffweasley: wizardingheadcanon: kyraneko: elidyce: thatgirlonstage: fuckyeahdeathlyhallows: sirlestrange: #that is a human as a rat as a cup That was a long 12 years for Wormtail. Can you imagine how differently their lives would鈥檝e gone if Ron, in trying to transfigure Scabbers, had actually transfigured him back into a human?Just take a moment to imagine McGonagall鈥檚 reaction if Peter Pettigrew had abruptly appeared in her classroom from Ronald Weasley鈥檚 rat.Take a moment. Or if Ron had fucked it up a little worse and couldn鈥檛 get 鈥楽cabbers鈥 back and McGonagall had take him to disenchant him and next thing we know there鈥檚 a naked Peter Pettigrew sitting on McGonagall鈥檚 desk and the kids in that class learn six new swear words, a hex they will never dare to use, and a fear of Minerva McGonagall鈥檚 wrath that will be with them until the day they die. Ten and twenty years later first years are being pulled aside and warned never mess around in Transfiguration seriously the last time a kid mucked something up in that class Professor McGonagall used two semi-legal hexes, took down a Death Eater and sabotaged the rise of the Dark Lord before Potter had time to get his wand out. What most of Hogwarts learned first on that otherwise-unexceptionable day was that Professor McGonagall could sure scream loud. Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms 5th-year Charms class was close enough to catch the full effect, and the door had been left open besides; en masse the students recoiled with shock and a miscast Hiccuping Charm broke one of the windows (out which the entire flock of ravens they were practicing on escaped to the Forbidden Forest where they only had to worry about centaurs, rather than annoying young humans with wands). Up in the Divination Tower, Sibyl Trelawny preened over her foresight to have warned her students of an unprecedented catastrophe likely to occur before the hour was out. Out in Greenhouse Five, a NEWT-level Herbology class looked up in puzzlement, and most of them were subsequently bitten by the Venomous Tentaculae they were attempting to propagate. It does not do to ignore a Venomous Tentacula when you鈥檙e prodding at its intimate parts with a cotton ball held in tweezers, so the class was cancelled while two-thirds of the students headed for the infirmary and the rest of them headed into the castle because if they stayed with the Venomous Tentaculae they鈥檇 be outnumbered, and nobody wants that. And down in the dungeons, Professor Snape turned away from comparing Lee Jordan鈥檚 Pepper-Up Potion to spoiled cream at what sounded like a woman screaming from the entrance hall. At the second scream, he ordered the class to remain where they were and behave, sweeping out of the room just in time to miss Theodore Nott suddenly jumping up and yelping as if someone had put a crocodile heart down the back of his robes. Fred Weasley stepped back from the unfortunate Slytherin, shared a smirk with his twin, and stuck his head out the door to make sure Snape had rounded the corner before leading the way out of the classroom. - Back in the Transfiguration classroom, about four minutes ago, it had started innocently enough. Ron Weasley, possessed of a broken wand and a lurking suspicion that most of the family鈥檚 magical talent had been soaked up by his siblings before he was around to get any, had attempted to turn his pet rat, Scabbers, into a teacup. Scabbers had not become a teacup. Scabbers, blast his useless furry little backside, had become a furry, vaguely teacup-shaped monstrosity out of which absolutely no one would have been tempted to drink, and to make matters worse, he still had a tail. It was moving. Harry was hiding a smile behind his hand. Dean and Seamus weren鈥檛 even trying to hide, elbowing each other and laughing. Parvati and Lavender were looking with disgust and horror at either Scabbers or him, and Hermione was opening her mouth, no doubt ready to tell him聽exactly what he鈥檇 done wrong. Which only made it worse that he really thought he鈥檇 done everything right this time. He snatched Scabbers off the desk (eww, the base of the cup had the same texture as rat feet) and turned away from Hermione. He made the wand movement again, picturing in his mind the way McGonagall had demonstrated it. 鈥淓rreverto.鈥 鈥淓rreverto. Erreverto.聽Erreverto.鈥 It didn鈥檛 work. It didn鈥檛 work when Professor McGonagall stopped by and gave Hermione two points for Gryffindor for getting the spell perfect in both directions. It didn鈥檛 work when Harry made his successful transfiguration (Ron looked; the pattern was a little bit furry but it was definitely a teacup). Ron鈥檚 lips formed the shape of a word that would鈥檝e made his mother box his ears had she heard it and attempted the reverse transfiguration, which didn鈥檛 work either. Finally, faced not only with the indignity of failure but the threat of Scabbers being stuck like that, he鈥檇 gone up to Professor McGonagall鈥檚 desk. 鈥淯m, Professor?鈥 Professor McGonagall looked up from the paper she was grading and looked from him to the squirming teacup. 鈥淧roblems, Mr. Weasley?鈥 鈥淯m, yeah, Professor. I can鈥檛 get it to work in either direction and it鈥檚 not fair to Scabbers to make him stay as a teacup just because I can鈥檛 do a spell right and can you maybe 鈥β?鈥 鈥淚 suppose so, Mr. Weasley,鈥 she said, and waved her wand in the聽exact manner Ron had been doing all along. Nothing happened. Professor McGonagall looked very, very puzzled. 鈥淣ow that鈥檚 odd,鈥 she said softly. As one, the other students rose from their seats and quietly moved closer. She did not attempt the transfiguration in the other direction. Instead, she made a complex motion with her wand and murmured an incantation that possibly only Hermione recognized. The teacup squeaked. Professor McGonagall looked more puzzled than ever, and made a sweeping wand movement that ended with a sharp jab and uttered, 鈥淎rcanum聽finite!鈥 And there was a loud bang, and there was a pale, pudgy, and very naked man sprawled out on her desk, and she jumped back hard enough to knock her chair into the wall and聽screamed. - Having taught a particularly rigorous course of magical study to children and teens for quite some time now, Minerva McGonagall had become accustomed to certain things. Students who didn鈥檛 listen. Students who did rude things to the mice when they thought she wasn鈥檛 looking. Students who accidentally turned a frog or a raven into a flock of starlings or a school of strange slimy South American fish (and tried to solve the immediate problem by filling the classroom with two feet of water, neglecting to consider the gap under the door). Students who tried to transfigure their noses into a more appealing shape and wound up in the hospital wing regrowing their nostrils. Naked men on her desk was something Minerva McGonagall had never had an occasion to get used to. What made it worse was that she recognized this one, and he鈥檇 been dead for more than a decade. Inferius!聽was her first thought, followed shortly thereafter by聽Animagus,聽which collided with聽Peter Pettigrew!聽and produced the utterly horrifying thought of聽what if all four of them were Animagi? which didn鈥檛 bear thinking about at all, so her brain jumped to聽if he wasn鈥檛 killed by a Dark Wizard then why didn鈥檛 he say so?聽and realized there was only one possible explanation why, and about that time her eyes registered that parts of Peter Pettigrew she really doesn鈥檛 want to know about were flopping about in front of her face, and she was screaming as she jumped back. The flow of invective which followed somehow failed to surprise her one bit. Some part of her registered, peripherally, the shocked faces of her students, but most of her attention was directed at Peter Pettigrew, who at very least faked his own death and at worst framed Sirius Black and聽if Black didn鈥檛 betray the Potters then who 鈥 did.聽And the words poured out of her, filthy English and filthier Latin while Pettigrew squirmed on the table, his face rage and guilt and fear and something shifty and contemptible, and he turned to look at the stunned students and lunged for Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand. - Severus Snape had reached the Entrance Hall by the time the scream died away and the invective replaced it. He almost smirked, amid the alarm; of all the things he鈥檇 never expected to hear from Minerva McGonagall 鈥 he took the stairs two at a time, still not noticing the students who followed. He did notice the Herbology class, which had stopped on the way to the Infirmary and were staring transfixed in the direction of the Transfiguration classroom, but pushed his way through them, getting Venomous Tentacula pollen all over his robes in the process. From the other end of the corridor came Professor Flitwick鈥檚 Charms class, with Professor Flitwick bringing up the rear and pushing his way between students. - Ron looked stunned as the man who鈥檇 been his pet rat snatched the wand from his hand; Professor McGonagal鈥檚 expression shifted to one beyond fury and when the entire class recoiled, it wasn鈥檛 from the naked man with the wand. 鈥淟aedo!鈥 Minerva McGonagall roared. - Ron Weasley鈥檚 wand cast a Splintering Curse many years beyond its rightful owner鈥檚 abilities, and it did Peter Pettigrew the poor favor of eliminating the door, which might have slowed him down a bit. - Severus Snape flailed and skidded to a halt as the Transfiguration classroom鈥檚 door shattered. He stepped back just in time, and stared, jaw dropped in shock, as a naked man he recognized from his school days flew past him and bellyflopped against the wall, bounced, and collapsed to the ground just in time to avoid the 鈥淓xitium!鈥 which followed and vaporized an impresive chunk of the castle鈥檚 stone wall. Fred and George and Lee Jordan, determined to stay at the front of the crowd, had been pushed almost against Professor Snape by their fellow Potions classmates and some pollen-coated Hufflepuffs. Fred squirmed aside hastily as Professor McGonagall appeared in the doorway, the look on her face so utterly livid that Professors Snape and Flitwick both reflexively stepped back. Snape tripped over George鈥檚 foot and fell against a knot of Hufflepuffs, releasing another cloud of pollen and knocking them backwards. Pettigrew saw his opportunity and took it, scrambling to his feet, stumbling sideways, and launching himself towards the gap. And Minerva McGonagall made a thrust with her wand and said, 鈥淧erdo.鈥 In the very loud silence which followed, Filius Flitwick squeaked, 鈥淭he Splinching Charm, Minerva?鈥 She might鈥檝e looked embarrassed for a moment, and then she smiled as she looked down at Pettigrew, who lay on his belly, his arms and legs lying akimbo some distance away. 鈥淯northodox,鈥 she said, 鈥渂ut useful in a pinch. If someone would inform the Headmaster, and send an owl to the Ministry鈥-not Fudge, not Crouch, someone competent鈥-Shacklebolt, perhaps. Students, return to your classrooms, please. Mr. Weasley, I鈥檓 very sorry, but I do believe it鈥檚 impossible to return you your rat. However, the zero I was going to have to give you for the day鈥檚 work is entirely undeserved, as you were not transfiguring a normal rat. You may make the lesson up any time this week.鈥 - The story was, of course, much embellished by the time it reached all the students. Versions of it had the intruder peppering Snape with a Glitter Hex or transfiguring Ron鈥檚 rat into a pair of boxers, and people had to be disabused of the notion that it had been Voldemort who鈥檇 been hiding as a rat all this time. Snape gave both Weasley twins detention for tripping him, and took forty-seven points total from Gryffindor over the next few weeks for various pretend-subtle pollen references. Kingsley Shacklebolt showed up with a team of Aurors in time to meet Professor Dumbledore; the Wizengamot launched an investigation into the events surrounding the Potters鈥 murder; the results turned into a scandal which saw the release of Sirius Black and the forced resignation of both Director Bartemious Crouch and Minister Cornelius Fudge. Director of Magical Law Enforcement Amelia Bones was confirmed as Minister of Magic shortly thereafte, and the Daily Prophet reported that Sirius Black (鈥淕odfather to the Boy-Who-Lived!鈥 鈥淔ramed, Abandoned, Condemned to Living Hell!鈥 鈥淗eart-Wrenching: His Release In Pictures, Page 17!鈥) was considering applying for a teaching position at Hogwarts, 鈥渂ut just for a year, I鈥檝e been cursed enough for one lifetime.鈥 (鈥淭he聽Prophet reminds its readers that the so-called 鈥渃urse鈥 on a certain Hogwarts teaching position is almost certainly a mere string of coincidences.鈥) And, Minerva thought with relish some months later, it was almost three weeks before anyone attempted messing around in her class. A personal record. I鈥檝e probably reblogged this before but I鈥檓 going to do it again right now I think this is literally the best au this entire fandom has produced I鈥檝e only seen this legendary bit of writing in memes and screenshots. I feel so blessed to see it in person. Beautiful, simply beautiful! Reblogging my own post because a) it鈥檚 my damn horn and I鈥檒l blow it if I want to, and b) I just (finally!) cross-posted this to Archive Of Our Own, so if anybody wants to go read it over there, here it is.

Because shes the: 5/2/2018 There I was, enjoying a night filled with libations, good conversation, and merriment when it all came grinding to a halt thanks to a "wolf in waitress' clothing." Being a poor student, yet feeling magnanimous, I decided to pay for my table's drinks. I sacrificed a small animal, and lo and behold a demon appeared. With fiery red hair, and a scowl to match, she told me she'd be happy to fetch the bill. She said her name was Melissa--l assume this was her human" name, since revealing her true form would surely destroy the entire establishment. I paid the bill with my debit card and fearing that my funds were running low, I left a 10 percent tip on the bill (just drinks mind you). Before l could leave the rest of the tip in cash, the check was snatched by her talons, and in a blaze she was gone Moments later, I felt the icy touch of death on my back, with the words "was there something wrong with the service?" spoken through forked tongue, sending a chill up my spine Apologetically, I began to explain that everything was fine and hurriedly fumbled through my wallet for a greater offering to the beast. Ashamed, I left the required (apparently) cash on the table, taking the tip to about 18 percent. Wanting to make a quick getaway lest I receive another dirty look, I gathered my party (about 4 people each of whom tipped tipped to compensate my portion) and we began to exit. On my way out the door, Melissa felt the need to announce to the entire building that "that guy only left a 10 percent tip!" Defeated, degraded, and emasculated I left her lair and called the manager the next day. He told me that "this is really an issue for the owner" and never called me back. Overall, summit gets 5 stars for location, board games, and food My waitress, however, gets 1 star and can go eat a fart. Was this review...? UsefulFunnyCool Because shes the
