October 2020 Recs

This month, I’m reccing two Minerva-centric series, one older and one new, plus an older stand-alone fic that will give you a much-needed smile in these troubled times.
The Minerva Quartet
by eldritcher
Characters: Alastor Moody, Alice Longbottom, Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter, Lucius Malfoy, Minerva McGonagall, Severus Snape
Pairings: Albus/Minerva, Lucius/Minerva

Minerva falls in love with Albus Dumbledore. This is most inadvisable, given the Grindelwald conundrum. Never you mind, Minerva says, as she carries on. Alastor watches. Severus judges. A monster, beloved to a Castle, warns her of her folly. In the end, it is only Harry and her left as relics of another era, and she leaves Hogwarts for Inverness where caulking songs await her.

Nox Lumina
by eudaemonia
Characters: Alastor Moody, Albus Dumbledore, Amelia Bones, Cornelius Fudge, Filius Flitwick, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Harry Potter, Horace Slughorn, Lucius Malfoy, Luna Lovegood, Minerva McGonagall, Pomona Sprout, Severus Snape, Sirius Black
Pairings: Minerva/Severus

The love story of Minerva McGonagall and Severus Snape, framed by the 2019 album Lux Prima by Karen O and Danger Mouse.

Under the Mistletoe
by shadowycat
Characters: Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Pairings: Minerva/Severus

Severus Snape disapproves of the use of mistletoe in the holiday decorations, and Minerva McGonagall decides to try to change his mind.

Spoiler Alert!
