Wow, this brought a whole new light to Argus Filch. We only ever knew him as the grumpy worker at Hogwarts but this story adds more depth to him. I actually feel sorry for Argus to be honest, something I thought that I would never say.

The original series never really gets into how Squibs used to be treated in the twentieth century, so this provided some possible insight to that. I can definitely see how being a Squib would be look down upon in a wizarding community, magic is something that witches and wizards pride themselves on and to be born without magic is like failing to join an exclusive club. Argus was part of this exclusive club, and yet, people treated him as if they wished that he wasn't a part of their secret.

Of course, we knew why Filch was always so angry at Hogwarts students, but this adds even more insight into that. Hogwarts students get it easy, none of them had to live through what he did, or deal with the level of discrimination that Argus dealt with. I think this story fits right in with Argus's character when he's older.

Challenge results should be up soon!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review!
As I write Fuse, I feel bad about what I put Argus through. In the series, Squibs seemed to not even be liked by most Muggle and Muggleborn supporters during the mid 1990's, so mid-twentieth century must have been awful for Squibs. I can imagine Argus going through a lot during that time.
