Professor Minerva McGonagall, O.M. (First Class), is a half-blood witch. Minerva is a registered Animagus who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from 1947-1954 and was Sorted into Gryffindor House.
After her education, Minerva worked for two years at the Ministry of Magic and later returned to Hogwarts, where she became Head of Gryffindor House, Transfiguration professor and concurrently, at differing times, Deputy Headmistress and Headmistress of Hogwarts.
McGonagall was also a member of the Order of the Phoenix. In 1995, she opposed Dolores Umbridge, the High Inquisitor of Hogwarts. She also protected the students from Alecto and Amycus Carrow from 1997 until 1998, and as part of this resistance movement, fought in several battles of both wars, including the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and the Battle of Hogwarts (where she led the resistance against Lord Voldemort).
She survived the Second Wizarding War and continues her job as Headmistress.
I’ve heard a great deal about you, Fa Mulan. You stole your father’s armor, ran away from home, impersonated a soldier, deceived your commanding officer, dishonored the Chinese Army, destroyed my palace, and… you have saved us all.
Photos. Let’s just get this out of the way here and now.
Photos of you, photos of the two of you, photos of you with his family –
According to Jonathan, there can never be enough photos of you
Well, he never outright says it, but you can assume such from his actions
Depending on how you are with getting your photos taken, there can be a
mix of what kinds of pictures of you Jonathan has an abundance of
If you enjoy it, you model and pose quite a lot. There’s plenty of goofy pictures of you that were done to make him laugh
If you detest it, he tries to respect your wishes. Honestly, he does.
But sometimes you just look so beautiful and natural and that profile of
yours looks so right in this lighting and just –
*click* “… Did you just take a picture of me?” “I’m sorry..!!”
Meeting *because* of said profile looking great in lighting
You were honestly probably just getting some reading done while walking
to your car/the bus/however you get to and from school. Jonathan
happened to look your way, saw you, and became incredibly smitten
Normally he’d just take the picture he wanted with or without the
subject’s awareness and move on with his day. With you, however… He
felt different about doing that. Almost ashamed in himself if he did it
without your awareness, or even permission
Nancy looks in the direction Jonathan has been staring at for nearly an
entire minute and immediately knows what’s going on, suggesting that
Jonathan just go talk you
Of course, Precious Picture-Taker™ is too shy to do it, so Nancy tries
another route: Gently pushing him towards you until he’s about halfway
to where you are
He was about to give up and walk away but you looked back at him just
before he could. Poor soul froze and could feel his heart beating so
fast it felt like it was encased in ice. Meanwhile, his face was growing
warmer by the second
Jonathan was incredibly tongue-tied when you asked if you could help
him. Nancy had to step in and say he was doing a senior project for
photography and that you seemed to fit the criteria he’d told her about
His face said “What?”, his eyes said “Panic!”, but his heart said “Thank you, St. Nancy.”
After you two became a couple, you would occasionally tease him about how shy and cute he was being over “little ole you”
Him making you breakfast
It’s already a part of his regular routine, so if you spend the night at the Byer household or arrive there in the morning on the weekends or even school day, you can trust that there will be a fourth plate laid out and stacked with food for you
If he goes to pick you up in the morning to go to school, he packs you a bag with a breakfast burrito or breakfast sandwich
Being involved in a two-headed mother hen of a relationship
You’re protective of your lanky prince, always trying to get him to sleep more, making sure he’s dressed warmly in winter when he goes out to take pictures
You’ve stood up to many bullies and unsavory people on his behalf, much to his dismay (and much to his poor heart’s horror)
This includes his father, whom we will discuss later
Jonathan, however, is virtually the same with you. In fact, he might even be even more of a mother hen!
If you’re begging him to put on gloves and a scarf, he’s darn-well making certain that you’re doing exactly that – even when it’s not that cold out
God help you if you sneeze …
He carries a mini first-aid kit in the glove box of his car not long after you two begin dating, which he’s glad to have done after you once got a splinter during a walk
You’re pretty sure he just plain likes feeding you because even beyond packing you breakfasts (which he makes because he thinks you aren’t being healthy enough), he’s always offering you snacks or has some on standby
Jonathan isn’t a confrontational person, but he will throw fists if somebody speaks ill of you
(To be honest, as upset as it makes you to see him hurt, you need to admit that there’s something attractive about seeing him get animalistic
Clarification: Jonathan is definitely the bigger mother hen
Developing a big sis-type relationship with Will and his friends
You learn a bit about Dungeons and Dragons for his sake before realizing it’s pretty fun. You want to join the group at some point, and agree to do so after Mike’s current campaign is over so that you don’t feel like you’re intruding
You inherently become protective of Will and make it your vow to mess up anyone who dares mess with him
Jonathan quietly appreciates this
Joyce adoring you and always ready to save a spot for you at the dinner table. The Byers household ultimately becomes your home away from home
She’s just so happy that her eldest son not only has a significant other, but one who treats him properly and embraces his oft ridiculed characteristics
(However, if you spend the night or anything, she still would prefer his bedroom door stay open. Just an involved mother’s preference)
She always makes sure you go home with a plate of something
Since Jonathan is the photographer, there aren’t too many photos with which she can embarrass him with – doesn’t mean that there aren’t any at all, though
The first time you meet Jonathan and Will’s deadbeat father, you try to hold your tongue. However, the keyword here is “try” because you ultimately failed
The moment that bastard uttered a single word about Joyce and/or her boys, you were hot as a studio light
You were cussing and screaming and calling out as though you were getting paid for it, growing hot in the face
Meanwhile, Jonathan stood there for a few moments, completely gobsmacked: Even when faced with ridicule back in Hawkins, he’d never seen you so pissed
When he finally comes back to reality, however, his instincts kick in and he gently ushers you away.
He can’t tell why his face is red: It’s not embarrassment, he decides, but maybe it’s a little closer to shock, pride, and … excitement?
Double dates with Nancy and Steve
Nobody telling you about the Upside Down or anything that happened until at least a year into the relationship
You’re not exactly upset that such information was withheld. How could you be when you’re too busy being horrified at the trauma everyone has surely gone through
As a result, you become a lot more affectionate towards Jonathan, always nervous that somewhere deep down he’s still very much frightened over his experiences. Speaking of affection, though …
PDA being a very quiet, tame thing between you two
Jonathan, being the closed off person that he is, isn’t necessarily going out of his way to show PDA in the way that most of your peers are.
At most, he’ll peck you on the lips or hold your hand. But in every peck and every hand-holding moment, you can feel the growing love he has for you, never allowing you to doubt his intentions even once
In private, Jonathan still exhibits slight hesitancy to show bigger, more emphasized forms of affection towards you, often fidgeting when you two are sitting together and watching a movie
He may need some encouragement or a clear sentence where you consent to him wrapping an arm around your shoulders
Once you get him cuddling, though, Jonny’s as comfy as a kitten in a sun spot.
Nothing will stop him from nuzzling you and quietly sighing with content
The boy loves neck kisses, giving or receiving. He won’t do the former as often due to his shyness, however. But you rarely let this stop you from placing a quick peck on his own neck to receive a slight shutter or him turning his blushing face elsewhere
Jonathan can’t help but feel like any nickname he gives you sounds awkward falling from his mouth.
At most, he’ll call you “sweetie” or “honey” but he often winds up sounding so unsure or clumsy about it that you can’t help but giggle about it
You, however, go nuts with naming him things and he doesn’t seem to mind: Jon-Jon, Jonny, Jon Boy, Jo-Jo, Baby, My Tired Puppy, Jon-Bon, Stieglitz, Picture Perfect, etc. (After 1983, you begin referring to him as Jon Bon Jovi sometimes)
Blasting The Clash from his room when you’re over or when it comes on the radio in the car
Jonathan becoming so used to your bizarre comments and conversation topics that he’s barely phased by them anymore
He plays along with them, even offering genuine input when you ask for it
He never wants you to feel like you’re too strange or your thoughts are invalid – he knows that feeling all too well and would never wish that on anyone he cares about
As such, he invests himself into every conversation you have, even if he may not have any real thoughts on the subject matter. But if it’s important to you, then he at least needs to make an effort
Helping him prepare his portfolio for his NYU application
Jonathan was honestly a little nervous about telling you that his dream school was NYU – most wouldn’t imagine a shy, quiet guy from a town like Hawkins to be able to make it out of the neighboring cities, let alone to such a prestigious school in a big city.
His little heart did an entire gymnastics routine of shock and complete glee when, after he told you, you gained expression on your face and told him that you needed to start immediately to create the perfect portfolio
In the end, a great portion of the photos wind up including you in them or some aspect of you or something Jonathan later admits he finds symbolic of you
You want to ask him why, but you kind of already know: You’re his muse, simple as that
Enjoying just that: Life with Jonathan (when it’s not involving the Upside Down or whatever else is out there) is simple.
Not in a bad way, but in a sweet way, the kind of way that makes you think of cute diner dates on Friday evenings, walks for ideas for photos on Saturdays, baked pies for Sunday dinners.
The sweet feeling of holding hands as you walk down Main Street, making idle chitchat
Life with Jonathan feels like you’re eternally wrapped in one of his sweaters – which, much of the time, is plenty true
Always being so proud of him and knowing that you two are a team, be it for fighting against the supernatural odds, or for fighting against the more difficult parts of reality
He’s your weary-eyed prince, you’re his knuckle-bearing, fire-tongued princess
