    A Little Night Air

    A Little Night Air by Penknife

    Summary: Snape and McGonagall are friends. More or less. Oneshot, 1,678 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Snape and McGonagall talk about the fundamental differences between Slytherins and Gryffindors, but the differences are in more than the discussion. Anything by Penknife is worth a read, and this fic is no different. The dialogue and character is perfect, and the repartee between them is well crafted. There is a begrudging respect between these two characters that is very tangible in this brief scene.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s a conversation, so not much happens. If you need action action ACTION all the time, then you’ll be disappointed. This is for people who like character, not plot.

      I really, reeeally liked this one. I adore both Snape and McGonagall, amnd they were both delightfully in-character. I am also a big supporter of conversation/character-driven fics. The insight into their characters was awesome, as was the insight into Slytherin in comparison to Gryffindor.
