The Harry Potter Random Facts Fest


1. The first few times Minerva morphed into her animagus form she couldn't resist the urge to groom herself.

2. The hairballs that resulted from doing so and coughing them up in her human form had Minerva searching for a potion to prevent hairballs.

3. Minerva now has a very healthy retirement fund resulting mostly from the profits she has made from her potion.

4. Shortly after Minerva transformed for the tenth time she realized she was in heat but was unable to transform back before a tom found her, one she knew was an animagus too.

5. Minerva was unable to transform back into a human for sixty five days, which luckily fell during a school break.

6. Minerva named the three kittens she gave birth to Lily, Severus, and Lysandra.

7. When the kittens were eight weeks old and weaned, they morphed into their human forms. Minerva knew, however, that she could not keep them as unmarried mothers were unheard of in the magical world and if she kept them, she'd lose her teaching license, her job, and be cast out of magical society.

8. Minerva found what she thought were good homes for the children, in places where no one would think to look should they ever suspect what had happened. Then used several memory charms on the chosen "adoptive" parents to convince them that the child was theirs by birth.

9. Minerva placed Severus with Eileen Prince, an old classmate of hers who she trusted. Lily with Mr. and Mrs. Evans, a muggle couple that always left out food and cream for Minerva's animagus form - whom they called Mystique. And Lysandra with an offshoot of the Black family, one who's children always went to Ravenclaw.

10. When all three came to Hogwarts, Minerva longed to tell them about their true heritage, but she still didn't know who the other animagus was and felt that they deserved to know about him too.

11. Minerva promised herself that she would tell them just as soon as she knew who the other animagus was.

12. Then she learned it was Tom Riddle.

13. Minerva was secretly proudest of Severus for his bravery, his stubbornness, his intelligence and his sneakiness - which she thought he got from her.

14. Minerva discouraged Lily's affection for Severus, because they were brother and sister and it just wouldn't do for them to be anything other than friends.

15. Minerva cried at Lily's wedding to the Potter boy because she thought Lily should have spent a few years at college or pursued private research or otherwise used some of her potential.

16. Minerva was very happy when Lysandra married Xenophilius Lovegood. Sure he was a bit eccentric BUT he was progressive enough to accept Lysandra's desire to keep experimenting.

17. Minerva was also very happy and very proud when Severus became a professor at Hogwarts.

18. Minerva was the only one he trusted enough to confide his worries about his double role, even during the horrible year Severus had to pretend to support Voldemort and be headmaster.

19. After the battle of Hogwarts they discovered a small black cat, battered and bleeding where Severus' had fallen. Minerva began sobbing with relief as they saw the cat twitch.

20. Minerva nursed her last surviving "kitten" to life, slaving over him and telling him all about his true heritage and of how she had always loved him.

Bonus: 21. Minerva was highly amused when Hermione Granger managed to worm her way into Severus' life and his heart, very proud when they married, and joyful when they had their first two kittens. (and only, but they were very cherished kittens/children/animagi/whatever).

*snorts at the idea of literally having kittens*

Interesting. :)

well, it is the Harry Potter universe and anything could happen. (Besides, I like the idea of Minerva being mother to Severus, Lily, and Luna's mom Lysandra)

I wasn't scoffing, just snorting—because it's an interesting idea. :)

it is and I may have to write it into a short story. I'm pretty sure I've run into a Remus has puppies with someone story, so it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to have Minerva have kittens. (that deanimagus or morph into their natural human forms after awhile.)

Dude, if it were scoffing? I wouldn't have commented. I've played with similar themes before and find them interesting. Thank you for contributing to the fest.

you're welcome. I'm thinking of either a Dobby one or a crumple horned snorkack one or possibly a sorting hat one. (or possibly something else) As soon as the next 20 Random Facts About... gets written, I'll link you to it.
