Hey! Here for review tag.

Ah what a lovely and original story. I absolutely enjoyed reading this (as I enjoy all your other pieces). I liked your portrayal of Filch, of how he first came at Hogwarts, and the meeting with Dumbledore as well as Madam Pince. It was all very creative. I also liked the idea of him applying for the job of a gamekeeper first, pretty cool xD I especially loved the inclusion of Pince giving him Mansfield Park and him later naming the 'cute little kitten following him' as Mrs. Norris.

You really thought this through very interestingly and I had a great time reading your backstory of Filch.

Oh, and you got Dumbledore quite right as well - he is a very difficult character to write, and yet you did his brief appearance justice.

Another great one-shot. Keep it up!

Your fan, always

Author's Response: Hey :)

Well, thanks! Argus isn't exactly a character who comes naturally to me, but I enjoyed trying to weave a little sympathetic back story for him and playing around with the hypothesized courtship between him and Madam Pince. It's great that you liked the little details from canon, like how Mrs. Norris got her name, and enjoyed seeing Filch interact with Dumbledore. I couldn't imagine anyone going straight for the caretaker job unless they were really desperate, even more so than Filch seemed to be here. At least everything worked out so he got to stay at Hogwarts.

Thanks for your lovely review!
