Prompt: One of those stories in which we know where it's going -- toward sex and romance -- so the fun comes in seeing how it gets there. Premise: Minerva's a widow or a contented spinster who's never thought about being interested in women; Wilhelmina's a dyke, but, having been burned in her youth, she now has a strict "no straight women" policy. And yet, of course, they fall for each other anyway.

Characters and/or Pairings: Minerva McGonagall/Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank
Summary: During her convalescense after the Stunner attack, Minerva enjoys a little light reading, i.e. a scholarly study on Unicorn lore. The tapestries of The Lady and the Unicorn lead to a most interesting hypothesis on love and the five senses. One that Minerva examines with her usual scholarly precision.
Many thanks to my beta tetleythesecond for hand-holding, cheer-leading, and generally being beyond wonderful.

Author's Note: I wrote this poem in the summertime but was thinking about autumn and Samhain. It's 160 words and written with an odd rhythm; think of an echo if you can. I thought this was a more appropriate time to post it. Nervous about posting things (haven't comm-posted anything since 2007/8) but I hope you like it! [Cross-posting to other HP comms.]

I was pleased to be able to write this story in her memory. Leni Jess was a fine on-line friend and writer who brightened HP fandom with her presence and whose absence will long be felt.
My thanks to that fabulous beta, therealsnape, who worked wonders with this story at very short notice.

The title is stolen from an Ingmar Bergman film of the 1950s, which was later the basis for the musical A Little Night Music. There's no similarity of plot, however.
My thanks to my brilliant beta, therealsnape.
