    Summary

    Argus' life was a largely thankless one (unless you counted the thanks of the paintings he maintained), working on keeping a thousand year old castle from falling down around the ears of students who didn't care. He had his cat, his work, his books, and a constant boil of self hatred and resentment to get him by.

    And then a sixth year handed him a letter from her aunt, thanking him for acting as conservator of Hogwarts and calling him Dr. Filch. It was the first time he had been called Doctor since he started at the castle. He had little choice but to write back, after that.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Dr. Argus Filch does his best for history, art and himself at Hogwarts.

    “Are you here for the lost and found?” he said.

    “No, I…” Jane took a breath and said, all in a rush, “My aunt is a squib, and she works at the Wallace Collection in London and this last summer she took me on a visit and explained that the old works of art need specific humidity and light and some need to be in a special cases to keep them from withering, and she told me all sorts of what needs doing, and I realized you do that for Hogwarts and we don’t have special cases or special types of light to keep them from darkening or dirtying and I wanted to say thank you.” She stuck out her hand towards the man at that, hand shaking a bit as the man stared at it, before looking back up at her in confusion.

    "Don’t be fucking absurd," said Ford. "If you can't remember, it's your loss, Cooper. We are better at sex than two people have ever been since the history of the world began. We are the fucking Torvill and Dean of sex."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Spy is a ridiculous film, and so is this. Susan, Nancy, Ford and Rayna do a job together.

    Crocker's new swear jar was in fact a repurposed terrarium, and at the end of every month its contents were converted into a donation to the DC Youth Orchestra. During those months when Ford spent most of his time in the field, the donations were much smaller. Crocker called it Rick Ford's Cultural Tax. Ford called it a fucking disgraceful attempt at fucking victimisation, and insisted on tossing pound coins into it. Or Euros. Or rubles. Or dongs--the Vietnamese currency, apparently, much to Nancy's disappointment. Anything but actual American dollars, was the point.

    Summary

    About the size of a turkey, the velociraptors were basically feathery coyotes with sickle claws. The little buggers were escape artists too, and managed to escape their enclosure at least once every week. Once free they would usually venture into the guest areas and raid the garbage cans, beg tourists for food, and try and lure the pigeons into a false sense of security by fluffing their feathers and pretending to peck at the ground.

    The Other Velociraptors on the other hand, were six foot tall, super intelligent, scaly freaks of nature that only existed because the science department was a bunch of nerds. Surprisingly however they were much better behaved than their smaller, more natural counterparts. Too bad the chief of security was an asshole, and their trainer had a habit of getting drunk and teaching them things they really shouldn't know.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When Sasha Deling had first started working for Prehistoric Paradise dinosaur theme park, she had thought her job would involve things like escaping velociraptors.

    She was right.

    However instead of screaming people running in terror from prehistoric killing machines, there was garbage scattered across the food-court and people complaining to management.

    About the size of a turkey, the velociraptors were basically feathery coyotes with sickle claws. And like coyotes, the raptors had adapted very well to human presence. After all, a sickle claw was perfect for disemboweling garbage bags, half-eaten fish sticks didn’t fight back, and tourists would just give your food if you looked at them and made the right noises.

    If they came right out and asked, Anurag, are you a witch, he would have said, why, how perspicacious of you to be asking, yes I am and my speciality is credit card fraud. Instead they sold the old Hoover – which, okay, was not in the best of condition after being smashed against various parts of the Cambridge built environment a few times – without considering the implications for anyone's burgeoning new identity.
