I love your story! It was so touching and heart warming! lol~that sounds to werid but it is! I really hope you make a sequal! You're an awesome writer and I have ya in my faves! Kepp it up! 10/10
Author's Response: Ba ha! Well, that doesn't sound terribly weird at all, it sounds verrah nice of you! As I noticed, you've found the sequel already. ^_^ Thanks for reviewing and putting me on your favorites list!
You my friend have a gift when it comes to writing. I have been working my way through your stories and have been throughly enjoying them. Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading more. Especially Tonks/Lupin. You have even made me think of writing my own.
Author's Response: *blush* Thank you! That's my favorite thing to hear, that you like the stories. w00t for Remus/Tonks! That's my absolute favorite, and as soon as it seems that things will be updated faster, I'm putting up a story about them based on HBP. And yes! Write stories! Especially Remus/Tonks! There's a sad lack of fics of that pairing. Anyway, thank you *SO* much for the review. :)
Oh, wow, that was amazing! Sorry I haven't reviewed before now, but as I told someone earlier, I did just join and I was browsing through the pages of romance. ;) Great, great job- I love Tonks and Lupin. No kidding. :D I've submitted one of my own, called Problem Girl, so if it's accepted, I'd love if you'd take a minute to read it. :) Thanks, and I love your story! *runs off to read sequel*
Author's Response: Pssh, no problem about the not reviewing before now thing -- I'm happy you're reviewing at all! And yes, I would absolutely love to find your story! I run around here like a chicken with its head cut off looking for Remus/Tonks stories. Unfortunately, they are few and far between, but it'll be great to read another one. Thanks so much for reviewing!
Aww! Beautiful fic. I also cried, but I think that was only partly the fic. Tonks/Remus! yay!
Author's Response: *blush* Thanks. Yay Remus/Tonks! *waves a little flag* My OTP. And thanks again for reviewing! :)
aww so cute!!!!! not a lot of fluff either! got me to cry the second time, and I don't usually cry after the second time of anything!!!! must...have...more...*10*
Author's Response: *waves a fluffy flag* Mmmm, love fluff! I'm sorry you cried. :( But...I'm happy you reviewed! Woo!
I don't really think Remus and Tonks could get together, but anyway it was really good. I liked that you mentioned Jane Eyre, because I love that book! Another example of old men marrying younger women is Little Women, when Jo marries Mr. Bhear. Just spouting off extra knowledge, sorry. Excellent story!!!
Author's Response: Ha, the funniest thing is, I don't see them getting together either. *grin* I just sort of wish they would. Eek, I would have liked Jane Eyre a lot more if there hadn't been the whole...middle of the book...with the lady in the attic...yikes. Although I did like Little Women. Thanks so much for reviewing!
dude, i gotta say YOU ROCK! I am such a musical person (flute, alto sax, and i'm in musicals) I LOVE YOU! I saw Godspell a year or two ago, and I loved it so much! I Don't Know How to Love Him? I LOVE YOU! We play that in band AND the theatre group I'm in is doing Jesus Christ Superstar sometime this year! And Phantom of the Opera! Dude, you are awesome! I LOVE POTO! I'm going to see it in Boston on March 31 and I can't WAIT! When I first saw that this was about Tonks and Remus I was just like wtf? But, it turned out to be really good and I'm going to go read the sequel right now! I rate you 10 majillion gillion! : )
Author's Response: I rock? So do you, m'dear! I love musicals and music as well -- clarinet and piano right here. I was in Godspell, am playing that ALW Medley for band :), and I saw PotO on stage way back when four years ago. Wasn't the movie incredible? I loved it! I don't know how much you love it, but I'm writing a Harry/Ginny fic eventually to a song from Les Miserables, so be on the lookout! Btw, you're soooo lucky to be doing JCS, that musical is incredible. And to be seeing PotO. Gah! And thanks so much for the oodles of points! *wink*
Loved this fic. It was sweet, but yet I don't think it was really fluffy. Write more soon please!
Author's Response: *rejoices in the fact that she apparently avoided fluffiness* Although I must admit, I do have a certain liking for fluff...(tastes good with peanut butter, for one thing). Thanks so much for reviewing!
Wow...I was also recently in a Godspell production, and "By My Side" made me cry everytime. I love how you relate the song to the story, it just makes it so much more...deep...and sad... I give you not a ten, but a twenty.
Author's Response: Ahh, all this Godspell talk makes me weepy! :( Kidding, a bit. Thanks so much for the 'twenty,' lol, and calling my story deep (or was that the song? The song is so lovely and deep), I totally appreciate it! Yay for fellow Godspellers!
by my side is my fave song from Godspell, i saw that musical at my brothers school on saturday, they held it in the cathedral, it was really speccy!
Author's Response: Wow, that sounds awesome! By My Side is my favorite too, it made me cry every time I heard it. Plus, the whole meaning can be turned to make it more romantic, and all, aye? Thanks for reviewing!
One last note: I'm not picking on your writing or anything, I'm just a died in the wool Lord of the Rings fan, so (and of course a Lupin and Tonks fan.) so I love to see it quoted in other stories.:) Let me say again, loved the story.Can't wait to see your Harry Ginny story, I think they'll actually get together someday.
Author's Response: I did not think you were picking on my writing at all! Gads, my writing felt complimented by you, if anything. :) The Harry/Ginny story is one hold, but, in case you'rein the least bit interested, the sequel to this one (sadly LotR-less *cries*) is called All I Ask of You, and I have a Lily/James one out there called I Don't Know How to Love Him. *shifty eyes* Of course I'm not obsessed with Broadway! Me? Never...lol. I don't think those two have quite as much language in them, if that makes you feel any better. *wince* Sorry. I'll see what I can do about that. Again, thanks so much for reviewing!
Loved the story, I never knew about the Lupin and Tonks pairing before now. I think it could work, and being a huge Lord of the Rings fan, I liked the reference, I've wondered myself whether Hermione has read any Muggle books that I like. Could you cut the language with the next story maybe? That was the one thing I didn't really like about it. I think Hermione should have read LOTR more recently so she could quote the passage, which is really beautiful. :)
Author's Response: *cringes* Ah, language, language. 'Tis a bad habit. I never go for excessive swearing, but I'll use bl**dy and d**n a few times, I know. LotR = SO AWESOME AHH. Sorry. A Moment, there. Was that 'Hermione should have read it more recently' directed at me? *nudge nudge wink wink* I haven't read it in AGES. Well, I read it last summer. And I didn't feel like flipping through and finding that quote again. Truthfully, I didn't even remember there was a quote. I like the books and I LOVED the movies (I'm not a 'LotR fan just because I watch the movies;' I have indeed read the books), so I went by the movie on that one, since I'd just watched it. ANYHOO...thank you so much for leaving this review for me!
WILL YOU MARRY ME?!?!?!? hahaha just kidding!!!!!!!!!!!! But you are sooo good at writing fanfiction!!!!! Sorry I know we're both girls and everything.. I was totally kidding about that. lol!! 10!!!
Author's Response: HAHA!! I didn't expect any marriage proposals while here. :P It's ok, my friends and I joke around like that, I'm used to it. *wink* Thank you for reviewing, I'm so glad you like it!
Oopps...Forgot this: Hurry up with the sequel! And also, I added your story to my favorites list. P.S. Thanks for reviewing my L/T fic "Nursing Tonks". You were my first reviewer!
Author's Response: I'm hurrying! Ooh, on the favorite's list? *feels warm and fuzzy* Actually, I think yours is on mine as well. Or it should be, anyway. Hmm. I love being the first reviewer, and in that case, it was my pleasure. Thanks again for taking the time to review mine!
*clutches heart* ohmigosh! I love it! It's wonderful! Very deep and meaningful. 10/10!
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! Deep and meaningful? That was an accident. lol Kidding! It is, actually, a bit reflective, like all of Tonks's speeches. Thanks so much for reviewing!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! That was so CUTE! And I'm not a Remus/Tonks 'shipper, either. Usually I just would've skipped over this story. That was ADORABLE! EEE!
Author's Response: But of course, you didn't because I, glorious I, wrote it, eh? :P Kidding. I like to think that this story is cute as well. And funny, a bit. Squee! I'm glad you liked it. Did I convert you? (BAHAHA. Wow, I still feel bad..."Remus needs a girl, and she's the only one!" Ha.)
Oh that was so beautiful!!! I am totally a Tonks/Lupin shipper, and that was... oh, it was great!!! I can't wait for the sequel! And, on a side note, Phantom rocks. Just had to add that...
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I rather like Remus/Tonks as well, on the premise that "Remus needs a girl...and Tonks is cool!" ;-) The sequel is slowly coming along, this one is a bit more improvising than the other -- By My Side just sort of came to me, whereas this one is forcing itself out. It'll still be a decent sequel, I hope! And yes, the Phantom rocks my socks. Thanks for the review!
(referring to review below) I'm assuming you meant "All I ask of you" from Phantom of the Opera...right?
Author's Response: I do indeed mean the one from PotO. :) That's such a lovely song, isn't it? Thanks again for reviewing!
First reviewer? Me? All right! Loved it, especially because I love Godspell, am in a cast for Godspell now (we open in 2 weeks!), and was singing "By My Side" all yesterday. Horray for you! Sequel is "All I ask of you"?! Another brilliant song from another brilliant musical! *sighs thoughtfully as "All I ask of you" plays in head* You are my kind of songfic writer.
Author's Response: YIKES!!! Ha ha, I didn't even know this had been accepted, and I innocently go on Mugglenet, and there's my fic! Wow. I didn't know fics could be accepted that fast. W00t mods! You are indeedy my first reviewer. I was in the play Godspell as well, and "By My Side" made me cry every time. And I adore the Phantom of the Opera beyond the limits of reason. Musicals are wonderful, and I am a musical fiend. Eventually I'll have a Harry/Ginny fic called "On My Own" from Les Miserables, and "I Don't Know How to Love Him" from Jesus Christ Superstar, pairing unknown. Thank you so much for reviewing!
