I’m here to drop off a review for Quodpot Match 2 because this has a war theme!
This was a sweet happy little story for the war category. I’m kind of thankful for that. I was worried you were gonna break my heart here.
I think you really captured both Tonks and Remus really well here. Tonks is impulsive and goofy and a bit clumsy. Remus is quiet and gentle and a little anxious. This fits perfectly with canon.
I love that Tonks says she’s not fragile. She isn’t. She’s a fierce auror and skilled duelest and Remus needs to stop worrying he’ll hurt her. I know it must be hard with his affliction, but if anyone can handle him, it’s her.
i think the sad part of this is how little Remus thinks of himself. He blames himself for Sirius. He worries that his infliction will destroy the woman he loves. He just can’t seem to forgive himself, to allow himself happiness.
I was so glad that Tonks called BS and kissed him at the end. He was being foolish. He clearly wants her and fighting it is absurd. The kiss made me feel nice and fuzzy.
Good work on this!

Okay so I chose this story for a few reasons:
1. Tonks and Remus (squee!)
2. First kiss (double squee!)
3. Because it's for Chiara!
Oh God, your writing. I can't even. It is so beautiful. I wanted to sink into the screen and sob among the beautiful chosen words!
How am I meant to review when I have no words?! Er... (Gah look how inferior I am to the magnificence of this story!) Everything was just realistic. I love the little details you put in. The curse, Andromeda greeting Lupin, Sirius' death.
Also, I'm pulling this out: "She didn't want to dishonor the fallen, but teasing Sirius felt so natural" because... because... just because.
There is nothing I didn't like about this (except the length maybe, GIVE ME MOAR), just an amazing one shot written by an amazing person.
P.S. Thank you for everything you've done in the past few days. We all love you so much.
Thank you for taking the time to transfer this over. In re-reading this review, I’m reminded of how much I appreciate your words. You are so sweet! I had a lot of fun writing this story and I’m thrilled to hear that you enjoyed it. :)
