Why You Should Check It Out:

This fic is one of my sentimental favorites, and I was honored to win a Quicksilver Quill Award for it from Mugglenet. A Minerva who is too concerned with public perception is one of my (many) headcanons, and I can see her denying herself happiness (to a point) for that reason.
