Hey! Back for the final chapter :)

Wow, what a surprise! I really love your characterization of Marcus here -- his background was very interesting to read about, and very believable, and I like how he referred to Filch simply as "the squib". It says a lot about his opinions of others, particularly those whom he sees as "beneath him".

Considering Marcus's low opinion of others, it was especially interesting to watch the fried egg disaster unfold through his eyes and to read his commentary on the individuals involved. I also liked how he immediately switched back to thinking about the present and the impending doom of classes, because the event wouldn't have registered too much for him, not the way it did for the others. You did a good job of switching between viewpoints with regard to the gravity there.

I liked the end of this, too -- not just because you included my favorite character (Snape, if you didn't know) and characterized him so perfectly, but because it was a humorous take on the whole incident. Marcus is so awful, wishing for everyone to get into trouble!

Haha -- very entertaining and creative piece. Nicely done! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I'm glad that you enjoyed this story as well as Marcus' characterization. He was quite different to write from Marianna and Tonks- he was the only one to actually enjoy the incident!

I'm glad that you liked how he referred to Filch as "the squib"- though he liked his ideas, Filch's blood status made him irreversably "beneath him". I'm also very pleased that you liked Snape's characterization- it was interesting to write about him (however briefly) from the point of view of someone he was neutral with.

Thanks once again for reviewing! They always put a smile on my face!
