Hey! Since I haven’t had the opportunity to navigate in internet (or to read fanfics! *sniff*) I have been re-reading Once in a Blue Moon and I was wondering if Remus has a page in his diary where he talks about the first impression he got from meeting Tonks (or should I say “Lora”).
Please, don’t tell me I can imagine it!!!!!!!! O_o
Will I read a fantastic shot about that? I’m begging! Please? >.<
i will read this chapie later with time, hehe
Author's Response: Hey, that's a great idea. Maybe I'll have Remus flip back to find that page when he's feeling low about Sirius, and needs a reminder that good things come in bad times. Sigh. I'll give you props, and thank you for the idea! ^_^
Of course! It will be very interesting to see your take on the werewolves, Fenrir in particular. Sweet chapter.
Author's Response: I've written Fenrir before, in a couple of Marauder Era stories that pairs Snape with his niece Eris Greyback, and really enjoyed making him a more than a stereotypical bad 'un, so I'm looking forward to 'meeting' him again. :)
Complicated men are interesting men. :D Can't wait to read next part!
Author's Response: I once read a short story where a couple had fallen into such a rut that they always did the same routine every night. Then one night the husband asked for a divorce and the wife hit him with a leg of lamb. When she saw that he was dead, she cleaned off the meat, put it into the oven, and when the husband's cop buddies came to investigate, she fed them the lamb.
We can't have Remus and Tonks end up like that--bored to death! Must stay interesting and passionate about each other. :D
Oh! I remember something I did want to tell you...more to beg you about ^^
TELL me this little boy, friend of the other litter one that was bitten by a werewolf... TELL me this boy is going to BE part of this series!!!!!!!!!!!
^^ heh, I'm done. Sorry!
Author's Response: He will be in the story after the DH story! ^_~
I would have never think this of Remus!!!
Remus being concerned for a "wolfie kiss"!!! I dont know if he's mental or he's just absolutely sweet!!
Author's Response: They do call love a 'sweet madness' LOL. I blame his mum, who might have been trying to ensure he didn't limit or look down on himself for being a werewolf, but gave him the idea that the 'monster' was a separate entity, instead of part of himself. Sigh. Next chapter gets even more interesting!
I like this story it's pretty good I think the whole "Lola" thing could turn into something good
Author's Response: Thank you. Her side job as 'Lola' gives Tonks a chance to learn about the future Minister for Magic up close and personal, that's for sure! :D
GAHHH What is Remus going to do? Although I have an idea...:[
Author's Response: He's going to start off hardline and end up making a compromise, because Tonks is a very persuasive woman! ;)
Arrgh! The story just keeps getting better and better, but the reviewer in me is suffering from writer’s block :( Anyway…I really liked the scene where the wolf shows the cave to his mate, It would be warm and dry in the winter…and large enough to hold a growing pack. How cute was that?!? I really feel like there’s more I should say but I think the cold has frozen my brain….hopefully the review bunnies come back for next week :)
Author's Response: Hey, you did just what you're supposed to do when faced with writer's block....write anyway! What you wrote made me smile, so thank you for using your frozen brain cells! :D
The very first line of this fic made me think of the song that goes "Yellow is the color of my true love's hair, in the morning...that's the time I love the best"
Author's Response: What song is that from? It sounds lovely! ^_^
Aww. I love reading about Remus. He's so wonderful. How kind of him of to show Tonks the color. Pretty clever to put that information in here, so that anyone who wants the whole story would have to read this. I wish that tattoo was real. It would be pretty helpful, not to mention, pretty.
Author's Response: I feel like a tv show that uses cliffhangers to get audience to tune in again! If doing it is wrong, I don't want to be right, lol. Henna fades, but while it lasts, what fun it would be!
I just loved these two entries! Pink is nice, but red is so much better :) And, I think Remus is perfectly right to be suspicious of Scrimgeour’s motives. While I don’t know if he’s necessarily attracted to Lola, I do think Remus needs to keep an eye on the situation. ”Strangely, the wolf within me reassures best. It goes deeper than my ego, which reminds me how we love each other, and how good we are together. The certainty is instinctive and primal. She is more than my lover. Nymphadora is my mate.” This is one of my favorite passages so far! So, is the full moon next?
Author's Response: The next entries will indeed be centred around the full moon. I'm thrilled you like that passage! Thank you! :)
awwwww, how sad!!
Author's Response: I think we should give Remus a hug. *hugs*
awwwww, how sad!!
Author's Response: Remus has had a hard life, emotionally as much as physically. Sigh.
awwwwwwwwwww, i think i should read moonlight and shadow now!!!! I lurve this!!! so sweet!!
Author's Response: You would make my day if you do! I think you'd like my characterisation of Remus and their romance! ^_^
erm, i think you went a tab bit too far with Remus being an insufferable knowitall.
Author's Response: Hmmm....In the first entry, he's reflecting on his life, and in the second, he's pleasantly plastered and writing a limerick. In my stories, he's used his time to become a Latin scholar, but he's no 'knowitall'...I'll respect your opinion and respectfully disagree with it.
Ain't that the truth though. Excuse me now while I go listen to some depressive music and go beg someone to buy me whipped cream. And this time I want cherries, too. : /
Author's Response: A great song for that kind of mood is The Smiths, How Soon is Now!
You shut your mouth, how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human, and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does
Typical, stubborn man. I mean, yes, he was scared out of his wits, but still...can he not see that she's upset? Sounds a lot lyk *coughcough*, ya know?
Sheesh, even fictional men are complicated.
Author's Response: Sadly, unlike fictional men, you can never be sure if 'real' ones will ever see the error of their ways....sigh....
Oof! Heavy chapter! Everything will be better by (hopefully way before) Valentine's day, right?
Author's Response: Things will be merrier by Christmas...if not exactly jolly around Grimmauld, lol.
Ohhh poor Remus. All that mental self-flagelation, he sets far too high a standard for himself. Oh I just want to give him a hug!
You have a brilliant knack of developing characters without them being OOC.
Author's Response: I once read that Remus, not Sirius, is the eternal penitent of the series, and I believe it. The way he talked about himself in PoA was very self-denigrating. Poor Remus indeed!
Oh, okay, I'm more sympathetic to his position now. I just hope he can work through this soon. I think you're the first person to suggest Remus is also the wolf. What made you think of such a thing?
Author's Response: I re-read PoA, the chapter in which he's telling Harry how when he was with his friends, his mind seemed to be less wolfish....how 'exciting possiblilities were open to us' and they'd laugh about the near misses afterwards and forget the dangers in the excitement of planning the next month's adventure. I think he remembered some or all of those adventures, that he got some enjoyment out of being a werewolf...he just never wanted to admit it, would rather think of the wolf as separate. Sigh.
