This is a cute story. He's so annoyingly stubborn, as usual.
This seems so real, the characters are so authentic and yet the story begs the question Why did he agree to spend Valentine's day with her when he knew how she felt, how he felt and how he didn't want to hurt her? I loved the Teddy, I had one once that I called Rainbow, but he was striped and played twinkle twinkle little star when you pressed his paw.
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I suppose that the question is meant to be unanswered and is therefore left for you, the reader, to decide for yourself! :) Thanks for reading!
Good story! Don't quite understand the warning... What's deppresing is it's only one chapter! :D Write a sequal or something!
Author's Response: The warning? Oh, you mean the rating on the fic? I thought it was 1st-2nd years... :S I will have to check that because nothing I've written is exactly worth using warnings for. Lol, I'm not sure about a sequel; perhaps over the summer! Thanks for the review! Phily :)
Good story... but please try to finish it!!
Author's Response: Thank you! But it is finished... it's a one-shot. :S Do you mean that it's ambiguous? Well, as to that, I'm not sure in my own head how Remus and Tonks are going to work out so I've left it up to each reader to decide for themselves! Thank you for the review! Phily :)
The story was fantastic. It was really nice. A sensitive person might have actually cried.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad that you say that because I was aiming for something quite sad with this. Thanks for reading and I very much appreciate the review! Phily :)
Wow, Phily! Great thing! Shows the characterizaton perfectly, the exact thing that Remus and Tonks would do. Remus's worry and Tonks's stubborness, and their love made this one-shot excellent!
Author's Response: You are becoming my most dedicated reader (alongside Lindsey of course) Hehe! Thank you very much for the praise :D And thanks for the review! Phily :)
Wow! I love this story! It's a different view then I took on Valentines with these two, but still very believable! 8)
Author's Response: Really? I wasn't sure where to go at first so I would be interested to check yours out! :) Thank you very much for reading and reviewing! Phily :)
PHILY!!! *loves use of exclamation points does not describe how much I loved this* I absolutely adored and loved this story that you wrote for ME! *tackle huggles for the millionth time this week* It was absolutely amazing, really.
She had held high hopes for this romantic day from the moment Remus asked to spend it with her. She took one final look at her reflection before grabbing her wand and hastily Disapparating. Her reflection, too, disappeared in a whirl of pale green material.
I love this description of Tonks. I can see her feeling this way because of Remus, and wanting Remus to spend this special holiday with her. Not having him in her life already hurts her, but the way that you've put this entire paragraph is amazing. I'm glad that you've decided to incorporate this date together with them.
Its fur was blue, which soon faded to green, and then red. It was a colour changing bear!
Ha ha! That's great! I've never seen something like that incorporated into a story, and how that bear ties in with Tonks' hair is just perfect! Where in the world did you come up with an idea for that?
He moved closer towards her in order to see into her eye. Her warm breath tickled his cheek as she kept her head tilted back. There was a slight rush of air between them and Tonks held her breath. Remus, who was intent on seeing into her eye, tried to keep his mind focussed, but with difficulty.
This paragraph is SO sweet. Really. I ca see Remus helping Tonks, and even fi this wasn't a Remus/Tonks romance, i can see it happening. The description and adjectives and everything needed to amek a PERFECT paragraph are in here. great work, and I love this sentence.
Remus, however, was sure that the woman standing opposite him, the woman that he so adored, would not and could not possibly understand him.
And, as always, you have an absolutely amazing ending that makes the readers want more. You're an amazing writer, Phily! It's like you want the readers to want another chapter *raises hand quickly*, and you want them to know that it's the end; that this is really a one-shot, and perhaps that remus and Tonks will never get together . . . :(
But, I truly loved it. This is, like, the second Remus/Tonks story that I've read, and I must say, I will start reading them after yours. (Hopefully they're as good as yours!)
*finally releases huggle* *stands still* *one more quick huggle for amazing story*
Thanks so much for this story, Phily! *is goign to post in Secret Badger thread now* I truly loved it, and it is going on my favorites list!
Author's Response: Lindsey! :D *Hugs* Wow! For a second I wondered why I had such a massive review and then I realised who it was! Hehe. I'm so glad you liked it because, as you know, I had a slight struggle with it! In answer to your question, I have to credit many of the ideas for this fic to the wonderful people on the forums. The Skele-gro thread helped such a huge amount! I think it was Dill that came up with the teddy bear idea. Hehe I thought it was fab! And the snow dragon is down to Skipper. Abigail (Joybelle) and Morgan (MRHD) and argh I know that there was someone else! :s well yes, thank you to everyone who helped out! Thanks so much for organising the secret badger! I really did enjoy it and I am certainly looking forward to your story! Phily :)
Author's Response: I'm very glad! Thanks for the review! Phily :)
This was really good - I love the feeling of awkwardness you get from both characters! I still don't understand why it needed a sex situation warning though...
Meh, probably for the better; it's more innocent and sweet this way! I'm a bit confused as to why Remus asked Tonks out on Valintines if he didn't want to go out with her, but I do like the fact that he kissed her first then thought he'd made a mistake.
Author's Response: Ooh my very first review for this story! Thank you so much for taking the time to read! :D Yes, I wasn't sure about the warning but better safe than sorry, I guess. Hmm, I found this plotline difficult to work with actually which may explain it being a little muddled. I was orginally asked to write a Valentine's Day fic, set in Harry's 5/6/7th year with a Remus/Tonks pairing so this seemed the only way to incorporate it! Hehe! However, challenges in writing are hopefully the way to improve, and that's what I'm looking to do! :) Thank you very much for reading and reviewing! Phily :)
