This is actually relatively cool. I'm not sure if Ron is totally in-character, but...I loved it anyway.

Chapter: Bound

Were they already saying 'Bloody helll' when they were twelve? And Hermione is very rude here toward the chatelaine of her favorite realm. Hehe. ^_^

Adverbs aside, it's refreshing to see the trio as twelve-year-olds again, Beth, even though the childish POV doesn't last long. The voice of the narration is omniscient and objective, instead of character-centric. And it's rather not consistent. The switch back and forth is especially apparent in and toward the end of the Pince-Filch scene.

Madam Pince's words are also perplexing, prompting questions. Why is their relationship a secret? And why should it remain that way? Maybe it's just me, but I'm really bewildered regarding that.

These are two cardboard characters you've given dimensions, although you didn't venture far either. Somehow, that's nice and comfortable, the way familiar things always are. Madam Pince worrying about something else other than her books, but still with the same ferocious anxiety ('Please, Argus. Don't hurt anymore'). Perhaps her and Filch's dilemma is the thing behind her obsessiveness and irritability? The same with Filch. The caretaker having his own clandestine concern is quaint and telling. His love and devotion to his cat is parallel to his passion shown here and at other times we see him in the books.

The tone of the fic is rather serious, isn't it? Solemn. The greatness of love is moving. I think Hermione or Harry would have been the better witness to this, however. Ron would have said something about Filch and Madam Pince kissing. Probably a wisecrack expressing outward, if not sincere, disgust. He's twelve and neither of the two old people are in his esteem. Filch crying about his cat and then Madam Pince waxing poetic about their love while comforting him isn't something Ron would have appreciated, at least, not in this awestruck way. Just an opinion. Overall, Bound gracefully bounds.

Nice, but a bit too fluffy, don't you think? But, then, they have a right! ;) Great, otherwise!

Haha. The last line made me laugh. I've never read an Irma Pince/Filch story before, and I think I might want to read more once this is updated. Good luck!

And thank you so much for the Pluto avatar!

The fic is beautiful! I like it how you brought Filch and Pince together. I agree, they're an obvious couple.

Their relationship strengthens Dumbledore's argument: love is the most powerful thing in the world.

The best part: Ron got to hear their conversation! I was chuckling about it, remembering his terrible time with Lavender!

Thank you so much for your comment about Amor Non Mutuus. Sadly, it's hardly getting any reviews ... *sighs deeply*

Double wow!

That was really sweet. . .kind of creepy, but really sweet, nonetheless. Kudos!

Interesting. I think this story is based on a really good idea, and is pretty well-written. I do think that the characters are a bit off, though. Hermione wouldn't refer to Madame Pince as an "old vulture", and Ron and Harry really wouldn't care about a potions essay. But those are pretty minor things, and on the whole this story is really good. I especially liked the ending, though I'm not sure about "knowing his friends would never understand the serenity and teh desire to live and love he had experience in the library". After all, love is Harry's " power the Dark Lord knows not".

Author's Response: Hehe "old vulture" is my pet name for Madam Pince. And I agree with you somewhat; Hermione wouldn't call her that. Unless she's bothering them tremendously as she is doing in my story. Again, you're right. Ron and Harry wouldn't care much about the potions essay. But I did explain it in my story. Finally, you're again right about Harry's knowledge on love. However, he knows the love a mother has for her son. Ron knows the love a man could have for a woman.

Thanks for your review!

Ron, the poor bloke, he's probably so confused right now.

Excellent job. I'd never have considered Argus Filch and Madame Pince before, but now it makes perfect sense!

Author's Response: Filch/Pince was mentioned as a joke in HBP. But that's when I knew for sure the ship was canon ;]

Thanks for the review!

Wow...That was really good. You really captured the 'moment' between Filch and Pince.
10 out of 10 stars!

Author's Response: Thanks! It took me a while to get it to a point where it was acceptable.

Thanks for the review!
