This was a beautiful one-shot and I wish that it wasn't, purely because I want to know what happens next. I honestly don't have anything negative to say, so I will tell you all the bits I loved.

I liked how, originally, Argus tried applying for gamekeeper but didn't have the skills needed for it. In true Dumbledore style, he finds something else though it was not the idea that Filch had in mind.

It's nice the see someone give Argus some redeeming qualities as the books and movies do such a good job at making him repulsive. It would not have been easy growing up as a squib as there is such a stigma attached to them. I thought you highlighted this well. Again, he would have been embarrassed to admit his lack of magical ability and it was true to his character when he 'bended' the truth to Irma.

I could keep going with everything that I adore bout this story but we would be here forever. I do hope that you turn this into a short story as I'd love to read more - I enjoyed it that much!

Keep up the good work,

Author's Response: Thanks so much for coming by, graylady01 :)

Several people have requested that I make this longer. I don't have plans to do that at the moment, but I won't rule out writing more Argus/Irma in the future. How's that sound?

I'm happy the characterization made sense and you liked the slightly less negative spin I put on Filch. Like you mentioned, the books and films aren't exactly kind to him, and I figured that at one point he would have been a bit less bitter. I was worried that maybe I went too far in trying to make him more likable, but I'm glad you think I did a good job.

Thanks so much for your lovely review!
