AAAHHH, where's REMUS?????!!!!! Grrr...you need to make these chapters longer...
Author's Response: Loads of Remus in the next chapter, I promise! :D It's in the queue, sitting, waiting, wishing, lol. I only have a minimum for words per chap, 3K. Over that depends on the flow. This one flowed to Andromeda's and stopped. The next one is over 300 words longer, and flows into a romance scene before the end. ^_^
Author's Response: Yay for happy faces! Thanks! ^_^
Yaaaaay, it finally came!
Wow, that was sad. Poor Tonks. I feel like giving her tons of fortune cookies, all reading "everybody loves Tonks"... In fact, I'd fill a bathtub with them, and make Remus soak in them, so she would join him, hihihih... ^_^
Author's Response: The image of the fortunate bath, lol, is probably a lot sexier than the soggy cookie reality, snicker. In 16, though, there's a scene that cheers her up that includes water fun! :D
Awwwwww!! Poor lil' Tonks, how we love her! Healer Wells was brilliant, I loved the characterisation of her, and the fortune cookie jokes, obviously. I had to wipe the tears of laughter from my eyes after the Janice inference - Chandler was always my favourite Friend, and that was excellent. *snigger* Loved it all!! Are we to see some serious commitment issues in the coming chapters? Maybe some seriously intense discussions with our beloved Remus?? Oooooohhh......update soon, I can't wait!!!
Author's Response: Ta, thanks! ^_^ I figured if there was a Chandler-esque character, Marsden the snarky cartoonist would be it, LOL. The next chaps get Tonks to face and work through fears. 16 is in the queue, and if it validated today, I'd stick 17 right in! *looks to the heavens and sends up prayer*
awwwww.......... i like tonks's mum, and the garden.
Author's Response: Thank you! Aren't mums the best...except Sirius'.... ^_^
its almost scary how much evan reminds me of my couin's ex, who's also named evan. anyway, i loved this chapter, although i feel bad for tonks. it makes me really mad at evan..(the character and the one in real life)
Author's Response: Don't we all know an Evan, or Paul, Rita's non-ex...either personally or through friends and family? Wouldn't it be nice if we could hex them? LOL
My boyfriend said they 'have good instrumentals' which is his polite way of saying he doesn't like Panic! At the Disco.
Author's Response: Tell him to remember...they're still so young,and desperate for attention, snicker. :D
I feel so bad for Tonks and so angry at Evan! Of course Remus makes up for what a terrible guy Evan is. Another wonderful chapter, I look forward to more.
Author's Response: Thank you! Tonks needs to work her fears out so she can be with Remus without reservations. Times will be dark enough next fic without emotional baggage!
The names of their songs don't make much sense. My favorite song is "There's a Reason...". It's too long to type the whole thing.
Author's Response: They're very...quirky...is a nice way to put it. :D It's a good thing when characters have quirks. I hope you like the ones in the next chapter. ^_^
yay, just read *gasps!* chapter 18! just thought i'd make all the "mnff only" people insanely jealous by reviewing here as well! Era molto eccelente! Amo Remus! Ma odio Evan. È un serpente! Buon capitolo! Ciao!
Author's Response: Some people like snakes, heh. Snicker on making people insanely jealous. Those who remain unswerving have my utmost admiration....I'm also fond of their reviews, LOL.
Why do you try not to like them?
Author's Response: I like the music but not the lyrics, lol.
Ha... 'Poise and rationality'. I love Panic! At the Disco.
Author's Response: I try not to, but they're insidiously catchy! LOL I'll be knocking on wood and avoiding ladders and black cats and whatnot, hoping the next chap validates and you can review! ^_^
*jumps around in rat-hasty circles*
LALALALALALA! I have NO idea what to do until this validates...
*waits a little more*
*waits too long*
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I'm going mad!
Author's Response: LOL at the thought of a rat-hasty circle. Oh my heck, that's a funny image! :D Don't go mad. They won't let you have internet in the loony bin! ^_~
i think I'M going to have a panic attack. no updates anywhere, as ff is having major problems... again. oh well. i guess i'll just have to wait.
Author's Response: Keep trying. It has moments of poise and rationality, snicker, and I'm sure on MN our lovely, talented, generous, if busy mod will find time to validate soon!
well, hello! long time no updates, lol! what is with mugglenet these days? my loyalties are drifting drifting drifting away to... the other site, hehe. but now i can't access that one either! hope it's fixed by tomorrow!
Author's Response: In the immortal words of Count Roogan from the Princess Bride...Stop saying that! O_O Where is my brown paper bag? I'm starting to hyperventillate...are you trying to give me a panic attack? LOL
I prefer 'dual citizenship', heh, and enjoy them both. I'll say a prayer for updates on both sites! ^_^
I wish I knew a Remus... My boyfriend is very gentlemanly and stuff, but he's not exactly a Remus.
Author's Response: Remus sets a high standard, doesn't he? ^_^ A gentlemanly boyfriend is a good thing, though, and beats egotistical jerk any day of the week and twice on Sundays, LOL.
Can we expect a visit to Jan's anytime soon? Between her cousins betting on her sex life and Remus finding out she had a contraceptive potion on hold, I bet she'll be running off for a few truffles or a chocolate croissant (sp?) any minute now.... Yup, any minute.... *sits back and waits for chapter to be validated*
Author's Response: There will be more talks with Jan. She's too nice a friend not to see regularly! :D How nice you are to wait. Thank you so much!
I love this! I'm not normally one to ship Remus/Tonks, but now I think you've changed that!
Remus sounds a lot like a boy I know. He's sweet, caring, and has too many morals to count. I love how you have characterized him.
I love the idea of having Tonks write a poem such as that. That really made me smile the whole way through. Is it wrong to find her cute while she's drunk? That's sort of what I thought. Hehe : )
I really couldn't find anything I would change in this chapter. It was so well written and you have a major talent of writing things fluently with great descriptive words to fit along. Awesome work!
Author's Response: Wow! I'm thrilled you're reading, especially since you don't normally ship Remus/Tonks! Every girl should know a Remus, ^_^, and she was definitely in the happy drunk, not slobbery, sick, call-me-when-you're-sober plastered state. So she was cute, and if their relationship had been different, she would've got more than a French Kiss! :D
Thanks so much for the encouragement and again, for reading!
Have you ever read Bras and Broomsticks? It's one of those bubble-gummy young adult novels from Target. My mom gave it to me for my birthday, and it's well written but the writer isn't very creative. Do you know if a Sarah Mlynowski ever read this? The book has borrowed a lot from Harry Potter and there is a character named Priscilla, called Prissy.
Author's Response: I think the writer read HP and said 'how can I use that idea and create my own story' , but since she uses her own characters, got it published instead of posted, lol. I think most Priscillas are called Prissy...or Miss Priss, snicker.
That was fantastic. Drunk Rita was kinda funny. I just hope Jerry wasn't hoping to get into something serious with her.... I can't believe that her family's betting on her sex life. Does that include her parents? O.o
Author's Response: No, just the cousins, LOL. I think Jerry had the attitude of most guys on a blind date.....hope for the best and expect the worst....hehheh. I think Rita was in-between. :D
