He considered the situation as the dance continued. He had no influence with the Governors, had barely kept his own position after the war. What advice could he possibly give?

“You needn't leave the area,” he said as the music shifted to something slow and romantic. Minerva hesitated, then allowed him to lead her to a chair. “You needn't even stop working. Tutoring, consulting, writing a decent Transfiguration textbook for the upper forms - “

The first hint of a smile played about her lips. “You have a high opinion of me, Severus.”

“I always have,” he said.

She twirled outwards in a quick swish of skirts and click of heels, face tight as Severus reeled her back in. “That's not the case. Retirement will be -

“You're speaking to a legilimens, Minerva.” He carefully shook his head. “Please don't lie.”

There was a burst of wild laughter from the young people in the corner. Minerva let herself slump against Severus as the music shifted to something softer and slower. “They're discarding me, Severus. Packing me off to Upper Flagley as if I'm of no use. I could work for years more if they'd renew my contract.“

Someone called for a dance, and someone hauled out an ancient gramophone. Minerva sighed and set down her glass. “Well. It seems to be time for merriment. If you'll excuse me?”

“Of course,” murmured Severus as she drew a deep breath and fixed him with a broad, unhappy smile. What was going on? “That is, if I can claim the next dance.”

Minerva nodded before holding out her hand to Arthur Weasley. Severus waited for them to finish, then moved in.

The music was loud enough to cover his question. “If you don't want to retire, why are you?”

“I would add my congratulations and best wishes, but I have the feeling that you might object.” Severus had waited until the festivities had died done to approach Minerva. He'd been approached about becoming Headmaster and had turned the Board of Governors down flat, which meant a Britain-wide search for Minerva's replacement.

“'Object' isn't the word I'd use.” Minerva tossed back a small glass of what smelled like a fine single malt. “Upper Flagley is a lovely town. The Muggles are discreet, the shops are charming, and of course there's St. Oswald's - “

“Ah, yes. St. Oswald's.”

“And in conclusion, I propose a toast.” Filius, slightly tipsy after one too many kirschwasser cocktails, raised his glass. “To Minerva McGonagall! May her golden years be all that she - “

He hiccuped slightly and shook his head as his wife patted him on the back.

“All she wants, and may her move to Upper Flagley bring her happiness, peace, and joy! To Minerva!”

“Hear, hear!” someone shouted as the assembled faculty drank. “To Minerva!”

Severus shook his head. Was he the only one who sensed how unhappy Minerva was to retire? Especially to Upper Flagley?

“Snape. What are you doing here?” Nymphadora emerged to stand behind her son.

“You're looking well,” said Severus, calmly aware that Minerva was the only reason he was able to see anything beyond his nose. He held out a package. “From the Order.”

She narrowed her eyes. “A present? Why?”

“Housewarming, of - “ Severus danced backwards as something hot soaked his leg. “Bloody hell, he - “

“I gots a wee-wee,” said the blue-haired child, totally unashamed. “See?”

“How nice for you,” Severus gritted out, just before Nymphadora slammed the door in his face.

“Bending” a Fidelius meant “sending someone who was not Remus Lupin to ascertain the situation at the Tonks residence, then reporting any sign of abuse, neglect, or coercion to the said werewolf so he'll have a chance of hiring legal counsel.” It was a ridiculous idea – if the family wanted to be left alone, leave them alone – but since Lupin was a favorite of Minerva's, and Severus owed Minerva more favors than he could count, soon he found himself knocking on Andromeda's door.

Which was opened by a child with blue hair.

This could not end well.

“Just because I suggested there was a Fidelius in place does not make me an expert.” Severus glared at Lupin, who abandoned his usual mild facade long enough to glare back. “I do not know how to break one. There are legal channels for you to reclaim custody of your child.”

“I've contacted every solicitor available, including the Jarndyce who handled the Potter estate,” said Lupin. “None of them will represent a werewolf against a Black.”

“And you think breaking a Fidelius will help?”

Lupin bared his teeth in a slight, feral smile. “What about bending one?”

“Perhaps Minerva could speak to her, or Harry,” said Pomona. She had come to sit by Lupin, all sympathy and kindness. “Surely they could help.”

“Minerva tried,” said Lupin. He sighed and set his teacup aside. “She sent owls, all of which returned unanswered. It's as if she's disappeared from the face of the earth.”

Severus rolled his eyes. Were they truly that dense? “Has it occurred to you that the Tonks property is still under a Fidelius? If Nymphadora – or her mother – decided to vanish then that's the logical explanation.”

Lupin sat up. “Of course!”

“She won't let you see him?” Pomona set down her newspaper and frowned. “I thought your – estrangement – was amicable.”

“So did I,” said Lupin. He was back as the Dark Arts teacher, at least until Fleur Weasley finished her work breaking the curse Tom Riddle had put on the position, and all had been well until the owl from his former wife. “I thought she was moving home to save money, not to avoid me.”

Severus claimed the paper and tried to tune them out. Nymphadora and her mother were Blacks. What did the wolf expect?
