Re: .........

Hmm. Alright. My office door is open most of the time, you know, Serena.

Why can't any of these Ministry officials work out any problems for themselves? It's past midnight and I get yet another owl from them asking for 'Professors Dumbledore and McGonagall's assitance.' Bloody hell, they should pay me for this...

Re: .........

I think you should. Demand payment for your time. You should get paid if they're keeping you up at 12:30, when you need to be up and teaching their little sprogs at seven.

Re: .........

Six. I actually shower, unlike you, Severus.

And if I demanded payment, one way or another I guarantee that my mother would find out, and then two days later I'd get a Howler from her furiously exclaiming at the gall I must have to ask for payment when I don't need the extra money. And then she'd go on and on about my lack of family, how i never visit, etc.

I'd rather skip all of that and simply do the work.

Re: .........

I shower. I want you to do what I do all day in the lab, and have hair that isn't full of fumes, and damaged beyond repair, nor is it multi colored, unlike some of our less professional staff.

You're how old, Minerva? Tell your mother to go fly a kite. I think we should ask Prof. Flitwick to come up with an anti-Howler charm.

SNAPE!!

I was born this way. It isn't unprofessional. It's what I am.

Was the need to change yourself everyday born with you as well?

Re: .........

You and I both know that there are Potions and charms for hair like yours, Severus, and if you want to be unconventional, even Muggle shampoos. So don't give me that.

I'll be 75 on the 22, thank you. And my mother isn't just any mother. She's a McGonagall. If you think I have a temper and can be annoyingly stubborn, you should meet my mother. No wonder my father died early.

I'm going to bed. I'll see everyone tomorrow.

Re: .........

Firstly, there is a potion in my hair- which is why it looks the way it does. I wash it out, but its reapplied the next day.

Everyone's mother is a shrill annoying nag, Minerva. Everyone.

Re: .........

Can't you find a Potion that makes it look less greasy?

Yes, I'll agree with that. But have you met my mother, Severus?

Re: .........

Oh, I'm sorry, professor. It must be hard to be a leader figure in such a hectic school.
I now understand your problem with hormones. It's hard enough to deal with them while they're happening. However, dealing with them second hand, and on magic?

You have no idea. I'd go crazy if I wasn't, as Severus and Albus so mildly put it, a 'workaholic'.

Someone's got to get the job done, Minerva.
You certainly are very respected for what you do.

I've had butterflies lately. I haven't been able to sleep well for the past few nights.

Re: .........

Ah. I understand now. Insomnia. I just sent along an owl with some Hot Chocolate - it's a special recipe of Albus's that he gave me when I first started teaching. Drink it. It's an instant cure for insomnia.

Stars come out at *night* Minerva. When else would the astronomer be awake?

Re: .........

You need more sleep when you're younger, Severus, something you found out a little too late. She has to get up early, too. She still teaches during the day. And I've never seen her awake at night before this, only you. I was curious.

Is Severus always up this late?

Re: .........

He's had a case of insomnia since he was born. Yes, he's always up this late. Both of us are, though I'm usually working. And so is Argus. I believe most of the rest of the staff actually sleeps.

Okay, dear, that's it. Come to my office. Now. There are some things (people) we need to have a little discussion on.

Re: .........

Why am I the topic of discussion? She does not need to know of my sleeping habits. Ever. For as long as you have known me, Minerva, you have never understood my habits, do not assume to now.
