It was that notion that had kept me going. I needed magic as much as a person needed air. I needed to be by it, I needed to see it. It was my life, and trying to act like a muggle would never have worked; I was still different from them.


Wow. I've been on a Filch kick lately so I'm really happy I found this. I think he's a great character and should be explored some more. This was really interesting. I have never thought about them replacing him or what he would have done after the war either. I never realized how much magic meant to him either. I mean, I know it was a big deal and something that he always wanted but what you wrote...well, it kind of explained him to me. His graditude towards Dumbledore was something else. The way he loved the castle and just...I feel bad for him, you know? He would have been so much happier if he could do magic. Even just a little bit. It's really no wonder why he was so sour with the kids that could do it and just abused it.

Really nice job.

Author's Response: Hi deeds!!

Thank you so much for this lovely review! It brightened up my day when i saw that i had another review for this one! I really love Filch as well and i have this incredibly fascination for him. I always thought there had to be more to him than his grouchy old self, what other reason would he be a caretaker for this school if he seemed to hate it or the students so much. For me, this is the only explanation, there had to be something that kept him going even though he had magic (the thing he should have been able to do) getting shoved into his face everyday. It just makes me sad really when i think about it (or think of any squib, you've basically getting your culture taken away from you)

Anyway, i'm really glad you enjoyed this and thank you SO much for the review and for reading this!
