A Tumblelog dedicated to perhaps one of the greatest witches of all time - esteemed member of the Order of the Phoenix, Transfiguration Professor, Head of Gryffindor House, Deputy Headmistress and later on Headmistress of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, MINERVA McGONAGALL.
Welcome to Hogwarts. Now, in a few moments you will pass through these doors and join your classmates. But before you take your seats, you must be sorted into your houses. They are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Now while you’re here your house will be like your family. Your triumphs will earn you points. Any rule breaking and you will lose points. At the end of the year, the houses with the most points is awarded the house cup.
"Minerva was also, like her mother, a gifted Quidditch player, although a nasty fall in her final year (a foul during the Gryffindor versus Slytherin game which would decide the Cup winner) left her with concussion, several broken ribs and a lifelong desire to see Slytherin crushed on the Quidditch pitch."
