I picked this up from the random story queue. I'm not sure what to say about it. Everything I can think of seems like it would come out wrong. I'll give it a try, though.
This is one of the most adult things I've ever read here. When I first saw the description and the rating, I thought,"ew, I bet I know where that's going." And I nearly didn't bite. But, I have a bit of time, and thought I'd just quit reading if the story slid into sbdm slash.
I'm so thankful that you didn't go that route! This is so much more subtle. I think it's ever so slightly implied that Filch would enjoy that angle. His descriptions of the actions, the expected reactions and the physical results are just a little too graphic for him not to be into the sexual side of things. But, it's the fact that you didn't say it that makes it such a great piece of writing. In fact, I think it's the line, "M for miscreant, M for mischief, M for magic, M for mine..." that really brings that out.
This is a perfectly creepy and disturbing piece of work! I loved it and admire the writing!
