Kill Julia? Never! Robin Tonks and her Merry... Werewolf-partner, Animagus-cousin and other miscellaneous misfits... will not allow it!
Hm... This has got me thinking... How do your OC's fit into the Battle of Hogwarts, and DH in general? Will they all make it through?
Ooh, I'd never even considered that they might not... Of course they can all make it through, can't they...? :(
Author's Response: Exactly! :)
The OC's aren't part of the Order of the Phoenix, so they won't show up at the battle. I actually plan to end the DH fic well before that, so it has a happy ending. Only in the 'after', AU story will Tonks have to deal with the guilt she feels for leaving Teddy.
I kinda missed Evan - you know that the party's really beginning when he shows up! ;)
Lol, just been looking at old review responses:
1. Giggling at the "classic" music. I'm pretty eclectic, but I don't tend to listen to anything from before the 90's. Still, each to their own... (though I can totally see Tonks loving a bit of Mika! ;v) )
2. As for Beta-ing, I may take you up on that one-shot offer one day. I think I can see a few potential "alternative perspectives" to my current story! Well, we'll see...
Author's Response: All music is fabulous. You just need the right songs from the right eras! :D Evan's like Draco, a snarky Slytherin I'll always have a soft spot for. ^_~
i kinda agree that i missed evan, but he does always seem to bring tonks and remus together unintentionally. i hope that tom isnt cheating on julia because they seem like a really nice and genuine couple.
Author's Response: If nothing else, Evan makes Tonks realize how lucky she is to have Remus, but he's actually useful this story, LOL. As for Tom, read on and you'll see! ^_~
Oh wow, I love this chapter! One of my favourites:)
Author's Response: Thank you! It was a lot of fun to write. In the next story, I have Remus the one who's had a few too many, heh.
oooh i can't wait!
Author's Response: Thank you, and I did my best to make it worth the wait! :)
'“You shall never catch me. I will disappear into the crowd and return with my army to level the city and…” I yelped when strong arms pulled me back against a muscular body.
“Monologuing leads to the villian’s downfall every time,” Remus said, his chest shaking with repressed laughter.'
That was so funny. I laughed and laughed. I just love the bits with the Patil kids!
Author's Response: Yay, you like the Patils! They're in the next story too, and isn't it the truth about monologuing? :D
Amazing. I've read other Lupin/Tonks fics but I have to say that yours are the best. Anyone who can manage to make Remus seem almost as sexy as Sirius (though in a completely different way) has to be an awesome writer.
*Off to read Moonlight and Shadow*
Author's Response: There are two one shots, Butterfly Summer (their 'honeymoon') and Three for the Road that transition from this story to the next if you get time to read.
Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment of reading this one!
I think Remus is just as sexy, but like you said, in a completely different way. ^_~
Dumbledore as a senior sex symbol... rotfl
And I never thought it was possible for you to put even more Princess Bride stuff in a fic, but you proved me wrong, lol.
I wish I could spend all day reading this, but unfortunately I have exams tomorrow *tear*
Author's Response: Ask your Gran...she probably thought Richard Harris was very attractive, LOL. Michael Gambon doesn't have that same twinkle in the eye, smile in the voice, imho. Bet Grans across the world sit in theaters and think the 'new Dumbledore' isn't half as appealing as the old one, hehheh.
I know you'll do well on your exams, because you're obviously highly intelligent, and have excellent taste in reading! ;)
Ahh happy once again I was begining to wonder but you are aware no real relationship could likly survive all that(and it's not over yet) but it is nice to see a romance fic with an actual pot besides kissing - one more small piece of advice this is fiction try to make it not too true to life- it can put people who read this stuff into funky moods and still not be able to shut off the computer until they find out what happens
Author's Response: 'Life' is often stranger, more dramatic/traumatic than fiction, so I'm sure there are couples who would think 'that's nothing compared to what we've been through' but I'm glad I'm not one of them. I like my drama fictional, heh. Sorry for any funky moods inspired, but you *did* keep the computer on to find out what happened! :D
Again why does everthing happen to Tonks I mean at least with Harry we get the sense that it's his destiny with her it just seems like torture... and I'm starting to think a good memory charm would rid both of them of each other for thier own good
Author's Response: It isn't torture, it's life, :D, which is a series of events (some more fortunate than others) that makes us grow and learn and become people who can relate to the Garth Brooks song which has the lines....
Are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain,
But I'da had to miss the dance.
Tonks and Remus wouldn't miss their 'dance' for anything, and in my dimension of the Potterverse, regardless of what happens in the final book, they'll have a happy ending, which reminds me of another song, by Vanessa Williams.
But now we're standing face-to-face
Isn't this world a crazy place?
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last
Ok I know I made the crack about mood stbilizers and ADD meds but I was only half serious andTonks in a shinks office- it's just sad
Author's Response: Everybody has issues, don't they? At least Tonks is willing (if grudgingly, heh) to deal with them. On another site, I was surprised by the number of readers who identified with her, and even more happy that she doesn't stay sad! :)
Ok hasn't slimmy little Evan done something bad enough to land in Askaban yet? And foot fettish guy great story but why does everythning have to happen to Tonks?
Author's Response: No, he's clever, but not smart enough to realize what's truly important in life.
As for Tonks, might as well say why does everything happen to Harry. Answer's the same. Plot trouble is where reader interest lies, and as Henry James said, "Character is plot." ^_^
Ok Tonks clearly wants to be with Remus so what exactly is her problem?
Author's Response: I 'promise' you'll find out! ^_~
Snape+ sexy voice = yuck, yuck, yuck, (gaging, running for toilet!!)
Author's Response: I think you're like Tonks was...in denial... :D
Little voices in the back of her head should we all be worried about Tonks lol! or perhaps she should listen to that strange thing I believe it's called reason.
Author's Response: She's like a cat- always lands on her feet, and like the rest of us listens to reason when it suits her, heh.
Is there such a thing as being too helpful? a possible note to self should read friends= sticky situation x social disater= stop this maddness! lol.
Author's Response: Helpfulness is something Tonks and Remus have in common. They'd do anything for a friend, even if they end up in sticky situations.
Ahh the headline should read Nymphadora does it again... Anyone else hearing the Inspector Gadget theme song and seeing way too many similarities?
Author's Response: I think you're like tigger, the only one. :)
Speaking of feet in the mouth was Tonks born with her foot in hers?
Author's Response: No, but she might have sucked on her toes when she was a baby! :D
First it was the metal head concert now Remus skullking in bushes, the detective work, where I'd always thought him the type to politly remind people, even Tonks, to mind their own business has he gone completly mental- over her perhaps?
Author's Response: Remus was a Marauder and a member of the OotP. I believe he did a lot more skulking and detective work 'back in the day' than his mild-mannered appearance would lead people to believe, and his adventures with Tonks are innocent child's play by comparison!
Ok has anyone told our darling nymphadora she needs to knock off the impersonation gigs all they do is rattle her nerves and cause her to make a fool of herself- more than she would normally anyway.
Author's Response: Nah! She might never have heard of Aaliyah, but she knows If at first you don't succeed ( First you don't succeed ) Then dust yourself off and try again , You can dust if off and try again, try again. :D
Besides, this time, Evan didn't know who she was- a very important difference!
