Heya! Perelandra here with your review! So sorry that I've taken a while to get here...Life's too busy; the adult life is certainly not that fun as I thought when I was a child! Haha!

Anyway, I picked this fic because well...I don't think I've ever read a story about Filch! So I figured why not do so now!

I usually read and review at the same time...but ugh, your stories tend to suck me in and I just read through the whole thing without stopping.

This Argus felt bitter about life...but not as bitter as we saw him in the books. Perhaps after working in a castle full of 'spoiled' children that have the one thing he wants the most turned him into the bitter, angry man we know.

The little Mrs. Norris was a cute touch! I like how even at a very young age, she sticks to Filch and doesn't leave his side. His small run-in with the Marauders was cute! Ah, the pains they'll give him.

You know, I never put too much though into it but I guess Madam Pince also hates children. If those two ever got together, their children would be cats and books. That's it.

Your characterization you gave them was great though. I could relate to them in a way (I work retail...and deal with kids a lot...)but you didn't exaggerate their dislike of children to where they sounded like nasty pieces of work. They're tolerable, haha!

Aww, I didn't know that JKR named Mrs. Norris out of Mansfield Park! I feel like I learn something new every day with Harry Potter! I also like the little touch of HOW Filch might have given her the name. :D

Overall, this was a nice one-shot! Thank you for expanding my head-canon of a character I rarely think of! And thank you for letting me read this!

Until next time, academica!

Author's Response: Hey! Oh, man, tell me about it :) Sorry this response has taken a while, but here I am.

I'm really glad you liked my characterization of Argus and Irma and all the little details I included, like Filch's run-in with the Marauders and the introduction of Mrs. Norris as a kitten. I agree that not a whole lot has been written about Filch or Madam Pince, and it was fun to explore a new character and think about how Filch came to be the way he is by the time we meet him in the canon series.

Thanks so much for your sweet review :)
