First things first, I absolutely adore McGonagall stories. I don't know why I just love hearing about her either in childhood or as an adult.
You did an amazing job with this. I love the way you depicted Minerva as a teenager and doing her OWL's, it's how I have always pictured her, not a Ravenclaw but as smart as the Ravenclaw Chiche states. I also love that she has two twin sisters in your story. It's really lovely too see, and having a 'good' sister and a 'bad' sister was a lovely touch as well.
Carolyn was a really nice character too, I liked how although they didn't have much in common they would be a big part of each others lives just because they were there for each other when they needed it the most. It's one of those things where it reminds you that just because you might not like the same thing doesn't mean you won't be closer with them then you are with anyone else in your life. It was really nice.
I think my favourite bit was the fact that Minerva actually sincerely apologised. In the HP series Minerva always seems like the kind of individual that is never wrong and would also avoid admitting it. But in your story you made it so that her feelings came out and showed that she is controlled by them just as much as the next person.

Your writing style is lovely and there wasn't that many grammar mistakes that I could see so good work :)

Lovely story.

Author's Response: Ah, young McGonagall is always overlooked, and most of the time it is written well, so I don't blame you for liking it. The Gryffindor-almost-Ravenclaw bit was inspired by Hermione, who was essentially the same. I always wondered what it would be like to have two older twin sisters, and 'good' and 'bad' difference - I'm quite glad it showed, because I wasn't sure what everyone would think about Harriet and Frances.

Oh, I quite loved their friendship, too. Very peculiar, but all the same it works. Oh yes, even Minerva has to apologise at times, and this time was one of them. This was a different sort of writing style for me, so I'm glad it went well.

Thanks for reviewing!
