Pomona knows that Minerva will come to regret her decision, but there's nothing she can do about it. So she calls on Professor Marchbanks for help.

Characters: Minerva McGonagall
Why You Should Check It Out:

This fic poses the question: "What is unforgivable?" It gives a very plausible, in-character reason for a very puzzling and OOC canon event: Why the hell would Minerva McGonagall cast an Unforgivable simply to collect the Carrows' wands? That "WTF?" moment (in Deathly Hallows) is the springboard for the author to explore Minerva's character and her past, and the things that drive even the most upright of us to do the seemingly unforgivable. The relationships between the women are beautifully etched, revealed through words and actions rather than descriptive narrative. Tender, funny and horrifying at turns, this is a must-read for fans of these characters, or for anyone who was waiting for Rowling's explanation of that strange moment, and was disappointed when it never came.

Spoiler Alert!
