Oh this was a wonderful and original oneshot! I loved the look into Filch and how he began his time at Hogwarts! I thought it was wonderful that he was really there to take the position of Gameskeeper but really wasn't qualified for that position at all. And having James and his friends run past Argus dropping candy which they took along the way was rather great detail as well. This really makes me interested to learn more about Filch and his time at Hogwarts and what really made him the way he was. I also love how you added in the detail about the book and leaves your readers figuring that the book is where he got the name for the cat, which is true for how J K got it. The cute little romance that you had kind of sparking between Filch and Pince was realy adorable and really had me hoping for the two to get together. Amanda, I could really gush for ages about how much I enjoyed this oneshot and how sweet I really thought it was. You did such a wonderful job adding in all these small details that really arent needed but at the same time help your reader picture things so much better! For example mentioning that he had a hard time keeping balance on the changing staircases is a detail that some might skip over as its not important to the story but at the same time it adds to it! I loved this! Happy Holidays from your Slytherin Secret Santa!

Author's Response: Hi Erica, thanks for stopping by!

I'm pleased to hear that this little one-shot made you curious about Filch. I had a lot of questions about him, too, especially about why he would keep working at Hogwarts when his job seems pretty awful and he seems to really detest the student body. I wanted to try to humanize him and explore his lighter side, which is where Irma came in :)

I'm glad you liked all the detail and enjoyed the fluff. Sometimes I just have to step away from my normal, darker stories and do something fun, and I had a lot of it writing this.

Thanks again for this fantastic review!
