Yes, I could've reviewed something newer, but there's enough negativity in the world, and I was feeling like a good cheery read, so I thought I'd give this a go! And the tag line for the first chapter was rather intriguing.
Second paragraph and I've guessed who it is! Huzzah! I hope I'm right - I'm not going to say it right now, just in case I'm wrong, though, which is quite possible. You write in a way that's crisp and clear, without skipping on all that wonderful prose - it's totally amazeballs.
Ah! I think I've just fallen in love with Dora even more than before! This story is amazing! I love her argument for having a child. It's so often forgotten that Tonks is an intelligent young witch representing the youth fighting for what they believe in. This just brings that wonderful aspect of her into the light in such a subtle way. I love it!
This might have been a little inappropriate, but I giggled at the bit about Tonks marrying Remus even if he didn't wash his socks. That would have probably been a deal breaker for me, so Tonks' love must truly run deep.
I am now crying a million tears, because we know how it ends for them, but this is just such a sweet story, written with such a light and masterful hand, that I can't help but feel that everything will turn out okay for them. Seriously, though - wonderful stuff, as usual!
Oh, thank you! This is the second hit this little story has had in the last month. Cool! And I'm so glad you liked it! (Can't even remember what the tag line was, but so glad one of them finally did their job, hehehehe.)
I love your "As you go" reviews, which show me exactly where you are in the story. They are so much fun to read. And you're probably right in your guess. And now I'm blushing from the compliments on my writing again. (Amazeballs is an awesome word!)
:) Sweet! Thanks. I'd never written her or Remus before, and I haven't done it since. I just knew this story was about them and needed to be kicked out of my head and onto paper. And I do think Tonks gets overshadowed by all the other characters a whole bunch, even though you'd think she's the kind of person who would be hard to overshadow. Remus just has such a tragic tale, people forget Tonks' part in it.
Giggling was completely appropriate. I think even the saddest of stories needs a little humor. Hehehehe. Remus wouldn't have made the cut for you after that fact though? That's funny.
Oh no! I made you cry. (Hands over tissues.) I still think it's not fair how their story ended. I know people had to die in the war, but I don't know why Teddy had to be orphaned, just like Harry.
Thanks so very, very much! I love getting your reviews! They make my day.
