V.V gald you wrote a sequel! But did Tonks say sorry to Hermione? 10/10
Author's Response: By My Side was crying for a Broadway sequel, it really was. Hmm, knowing Tonks, she probably found Hermione after and gave her a hug of pure *SQUEE* joy, lol. Thankee for the review!
omg...this rocks socks!!!!its soooooo sweet.....10/10
Author's Response: Wheeee! Ha,...it doth rocketh some socketh. Sorry, long story. Anyway, glad you like! ^_^ Thankee.
Aaawwwww! That was so magical! I love your writing style! I'm so glad you wrote a sequal! You have a awesome story going down here! Remus and Tonks are so perfect for each other but you write them as if they are not only perfect for each but made for each each other! Keep up the amasing writing!~Bethany
Author's Response: Magical...like Harry Potter and Lucky Charms! :) Not a bad couple things to be grouped with. Tonks and Remus ARE made for each other, but of course! Ha ha. Again, thanks for becoming a WONDERFUL new reviewer!
Oy, that was fantastic. And the ending wasn't too abrupt for me- I always tend to leave my readers at cliffhangers or end stories pretty abruptly. Then people are always like "I can't wait for the next part!" and I seem to say, "Um, there isn't a next part, that was the end." Hehe, anyway, wonderful job. I just want to squish the idea of Tonks and Lupin, it's too cute for words. :)
Author's Response: Whew, glad you didn't mind the ending. It did sort of screech to halt, I know it, but there wasn't much I could. Ha, I love that -- "Where's the next part?" "Er, nonexistant. Sorry." And !!! You're one of my best MNFF friends because you think R/T is squishable! No one else seems to think so. And that's exactly how I feel, like it's a great big teddy bear that I want to hug. We should be able to bottle R/T and drink it every so often, and it would fill us with warm fizzies and make the world a much better place. Ha, ahem, tangent. Thanks so much for your reviews, I love them!
Oh woh, you wrote this before HBP came out? I thought it was after, it fitted the timelines so well. Yay, go Tonks/Remus! Brilliant fic. I can't really think of anything else to say apart from aww great fic. Tonks/Remus!! :D
Author's Response: Nope, nope, this story came far before HBP. I know, "Tonks/Remus...!!!!" That's all that can be said. And I'm glad that you think it's brilliant! (I just realized that I start to sound like Pollyanna when I answer reviews...but really, that's how I feel.) And thanks for the review, *and* your other reviews.
My name IS Christine :) I like Chris much better, though, and have been trying to get people to call me that for ages. Anyway... I'm shocked that you wrote a Tonks/Lupin fanfic 4 months before the HBP came out :) I wold have never guessed that, because Lupin is 36 or 37, and even if Tonks waited 2 or 3 years after Hogwarts to start auror taining, she is at most 24. So there is anywhere from a 12 to 16 year age differance between them. I love math :) Anyhow, this is cool, and I enjoyed it a lot. See you! -Chris
Author's Response: Christine. Reminds me of Phantom of the Opera. Woo! I was equally shocked when I read HBP, and, well, stuff. Yeah. I started shipping R/T a little after OotP; I found the pairing, and at first I was like, "Er, ew," but that quickly turned to "OMG PERFECT." Wow, it took me ages to figure out how old Tonks was, lol, but no matter what I did, the age difference never got too much smaller. Still, hey, it's cute. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and thankee for the review!
I also must say that I agree with Slytherin gal, what about them having kids? That would be awesome, I was acutally thinking that even before I saw that smart Slytherin gal's review. Great minds.... :)
Author's Response: *twitch* My mind is coming up blank with a sequel to the sequel. Sorry. :( I do not think it is to be. But thanks for the suggestion! (Et tu, slytherin gal.)
Loved it! Great ending, it's so much cooler when they get married in the end instead of just letting us "assume" they eventually get together unless of course they find someone cuter! Wow, lifelong comittment, how shocking!! ;) (Princess Diaries 2 Ugghh! Not that I exactly hated the movie, but Andrew was so much nicer, and if you haven't watched the movie, I don't blame you, and you can skip this part of the review) Dumbledore as the preacher was cute, (was Hermione bridesmaid? :) I liked how Hermione always sorted things out for Tonks, she's that kind of person I guess. Anyway, really nice fan fic, your Lupin and Tonks fics are the best. (P.S. The absence of Lord of the Rings quotes is sad, but the fic is great)
Author's Response: Didn't want you guys up in the air over their marriage. *wink* I saw PD2! Jeez, whatever happened to following the books?! And come on, that Chris guy, or whoever he was, was cuter, but Andrew was British! You can't not fall for the chivalrous British guy! Hermione, problem-fixer that she is, was indeed Tonks's bridesmaid and general coordinator. Thanks so much for the review, I loved it to bits!
Love the story. Love the pairing. Well done, 10/10. Are you telling me that you can't think what a sequel could possibly be about? Remus + Tonks = Children! Yay. Please write that quickly!
Author's Response: Argh, math! *clutches head* Kidding. I tried to think, though, I really did, and I can't come up with anything. I ran out of Broadway love songs that would fit their situations. For a moment, I pondered using "Sun and Moon" from Miss Saigon for their wedding night...but you'd all still want their children. Gah. I'm so sorry, but I think their little saga thing ends with this story. :( Thanks so much for reviewing, though! :)
Awww very sweet. I liked this one even more than the first. I love how you make Tonks so clumsy. She's jst like me! : ) My favorite line was: Truth was a distant memory right now. That was a cool sentence. D'you mind if I use it for a poem in school?
Author's Response: Aw, nice that you think so. This one was actually more forced for me. By My Side popped into my head almost completely written out, but I went from scratch for this one. Ah, yes, gotta love clumsy Tonks! And go right ahead and use that line, I am completely honored! Gads, thanks for all your touching reviews!
Oohh I just love Remus and Tonks together!! Remus was so sweet. And Tonks seemed so vunerable. I really liked it but I have to say the abrupt ending scared me slightly! But I read your note explaining it which is fair enough. I enjoyed your use of the song. I love the song - always reminds me of Germany - sorry I'm going off on a tangent. Really liked the story - the characterisation was imaginative and well written. And a brill representation of Remus was in it - need I praise it anymore Congrats!!
Author's Response: Wow, I'm a reject, I completely missed this review! *hides under a rock* I love Remus/Tonks fervently, despite the lack of any evidence. Um, I don't know why the song reminds you of Germany, lol, but hey, 'tis simply a wonderful song. And !!! It is the highest praise to say that I captured Remus well. Thank you!
The whole time I was reading this, I had the song playing in my mind. I'm no Remus/Tonks shipper but I did love this! You did do justice to the song, I promise, otherwise I'd be sending you a rather angry review complaining about how you desecrated it. And this brings back memories *goes into random flashback* of when someone sang this song...and my name is awfully close to "Christine"...*snaps out of random flashback* Ok, I'm back! And by the way, I didn't mind the somewhat abrupt ending; anything you didn't elaborate on the readers can sort of use their imaginations to figure out. Uf, this was a long, rambling review, hope you don't mind. Anyway, great job, keep writing!
Author's Response: I did do it justice? Whew, good, I *was* worried I'd desecrated it. Wow, that flashback sounds so cool. Man...I wish my name was close to Christine. *shivers* And of course I didn't mind the long review! I love long reviews, short reviews, any reviews at all are welcome. In case you're curious or anything, soon I will be desecrating another Broadway musical in the James/Lily section, and then after that another one in the Harry/Ginny section. Well, they're not that bad, but they're a bit miserable. Thanks so much for the review!
is there a part three in the works? i love it! like Flame girl said, a bit of an abrupt ending, but still good.
Author's Response: Nope, no part three, I'm very sorry, though I have a couple more Broadway musical romance fics in the works. And see my above response for the abrupt ending thing. Hmm, maybe I should add something about that...anyway, thank you so much for the review!
Sigh. It was a little bit abrupt at the end with the Seven months later etc but I loved it all the same. And I loved the first part of this. I may have mentioned it if I reviewed that... which i think i did. Anyways love it! Another sequal? Please please please!
Author's Response: *cringes* I knew the abrupt ending would cause some raised eyebrows. It was supposed to be symbolic of all their troubles being resolved, and everything wrapping up quite nicely. I wasn't even going to have the wedding and all, but I had too much song left, so I had too. I don't know if you reviewed By My Side. Er, maybe? Well...and what would the next sequel be about??? lol. Tonks and Remus are happily married. I don't have any Broadway love songs for them left, sorry! But thank you for the review, I always appreciate it! :)
