aww i love them, poor dears. they are the sweetest
Author's Response: They want to be together, but circumstances don't always cooperate! :)
Yay!! Took me forever to figure out you updated! Stupid hackers!!!! I love'd the chappie! Update soon!!
ps. I love exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Exclamation marks are wonderfully expressive...as was your review. Unforgiveables to hackers! :D
Interesting, Tonks reminds me of myself, often doing calculating things, without thought, to get her way. Not always a good thing. Especially when others see it & you really don't. Also interesting were Remus' memories of the pack "games." I tend to think that most of the pack wouldn't remember what happened, even if their human side greatly influenced their actions. I wasn't sure if he would remember when his actions didn't involve Tonks. Good to know. :)
Author's Response: He thinks too much, she doesn't think enough? :D In PoA Remus said his mind became less wolfish with the Marauders around, and was ashamed of the risks they took, so I think before Tonks he remembered more when he wasn't alone, and after Tonks' blood magic spell, he remembers more than she might like, LOL.
Haha, that A/N made me laugh because i am a total nerd/geek and my name is actually Gemma. Lol. That's like one vowel away from Gamma. Hehe. Sorry.
Loved the chapter btw, especially, as always, the stuff with Will. I love him!
Author's Response: I see a sorority house in your future....LOL. Whether or not you becoma a Gamma Gamma something, thank you for laughing and loving Will. He has an attitude, but I can't blame him, and he's sweet underneath the broodiness. :D
Great job! I've spent the last week reading all of your Remus/Tonks stories and I think all of them are wonderful! Lupin and Tonks are 2 of my favorite characters and I've enjoyed reading about them. I can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you for spending your time reading my stories! HBP is my least favorite book in the HP series, but I'll do my best to make this one of your favorite stories in mine! :)
About your authors response for another one of your reviews i love rob thomas!!! "these small hours, these little wonders, these twists and turns of faith..." but i'm in love with the fray! but anyway, i completely heart this chapter! wow, that sounded perky :) is remus really becoming aware of himself during transformartions? is dix really going to take that chance and use blood magic? is will learning magic so well that he can actually hex with no problem? is jerry in love with tonks but she's too dense to see it? is tonks a horny sex-fiend? ok, that last one was a joke but as for the other ones find out next chapter on Waiting for the Moon! hehe
Author's Response: Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind
Remus said his mind became less 'wolfish' when his friends were with him, so I think blood magic brings more awareness, although the wolf is the one in charge! Dix might want to use blood magic, but he's not going to get the opportunity. Tonks is going to pay a visit to our fave malevolent bat. :P As for Jerry, you'll see, and Tonks just has a love jones for Remus...and lucky her, she gets to see him next chapter!
Hiya, yeah, yeah it appears I'm slow on the uptake about Jerry, but I guess I was too caught up with 'Remus and tonks, Tonks and Remus-ness!' Yeah that was articulate. Though I guess I was kida REALLY getting the J Loves Tonks vibe when he was all weird, thinking Lupin was keeping her there to what was it you said "Slave to your lover's deires...'? I now I've got that wrong, but give me a break, it actually is 3am. =). Oh yeah about rainy hyperness, I always feel lie there are three types of things that happen to people on rainy days. a) Very tired/Out of it, b) Bit annoyed/Doesn't care too much. And c)Crazy hyperness. I always feel those apply and since we've been having rainy days for about a week over here its been a bit sad at the lunch table with me bouncing off the walls, two of my friends totally out of it, and one just lfeeling like "Okay......" YEah, sorry about endless nonsenical monologues, it rained today too... Yeah so seeya (Or is it write ya?) then.
Oooh, P.S. WHats the Rob Thomas song?? 3am? I think I have that, bt haven't listened to it. Sounds awesome. =D
Author's Response: You got the gist of it, that's what counts! :D Do you have Matchbox 20's greatest hits? Rob & the guys are fab, and so is rainy hyperness! :)
She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining...
I hope your rainy days go away to come again some other day!
excellent chapter! can't wait to hear the end of this discussion...
Author's Response: They love each other, but they don't see things the same way on a lot of issues. Lot of conflict next chapter...and maybe a surprise. :D
Oh wow I just checked and 1st review!! Not sure what that matters but still YAY!! =D... I'm hyper today. Must be teh rain.
Author's Response: For some odd reason, I hear Rob Thomas singing 'and she's only hyper when it's raining...' :D I don't know if it was 3AM, ;), when you reviewed, but I'm so glad you did!
YAY! New chapter! I knew Remus would get on her about changing him into a human, so in character! I like how you're sort of putting a strain in the relationship, and creating conflict, I was wondering how they would get to their break in end of the 5th book. =(, and I don't know but at the last few chapters I've been getting odd feelings about Jerry, relationship wise. First I thought he might be well, gay, but these last few ones have been giving me different ideas about his, er, preferences. =), Great job! Keep writing...
Author's Response: Jerry's not gay (although I'm sure there are wizard scout scandals from time to time, heh). I've put hints about Jerry since ch 20 of Once in a Blue Moon when he told Tonks, "it’s not just your metamorphosing that makes you sexy.” It will be fun to see if your ideas match what happens! HBP is my least favorite book in the series, so I'll do my best to put a believable, and somehow romantic spin on their relationship troubles! ^_^
Excellent as always. You are an extremely talented writer. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm hoping to find the time to update next week, so you'll be motivation! :)
I have read all of the stories in this series, and I can't wait until you update!!
Author's Response: Huzzah! You've read all the stories! :) My New Year is even happier, now, and I'll try to update soon!
=O . Alrighty. Good point there. I get it now. ;D
Author's Response: ^_~
Oh I'm so dumb. Dunno when I wrote that review, but my brain was just malfunctioning and I couldn't get the concepts. So, even though this is probably totally obvious too, why are they gonna be uber embarassed? 'Cus other ones in the pack would know, or because Nymphadora is still sorta subconsciously (Okay, I think I spelled that wrong, yeah my brain just does not work when it's like the holidays.) messing with his wolfy side? I can just see that Lupin's gonna be all confrontational with her and everything. Can't wait. =)
Author's Response: People who have questions and don't ask them are dumb, :D, and your spelling is fine! As for embarrassment, if you were having an erotic dream and someone woke you up, wouldn't you blush a bit that they'd heard you moan? ;)
i can't escape myself. so many times i've lied. but i'm still caged inside. i LOVE that song. i have there cd one x. anyway, i loved this chapter though it seemed a little short. i really want this thing with jerry to move along. give the poor guy a girl for crying out loud!! jk. well keep up the good work and post more amazing stories to keep me busy until you post again!!!
Author's Response: You should get the Three Days Grace CD! There are great songs on it like 'Just Like You'. The song on one x that reminds me of the pack is Riot.
If you feel so empty,
So used up, so let down.
If you feel so angry, just get up!
Let's start a riot, a riot,
Let's start a riot...
If I was a werewolf, I'd want to riot against the Ministry! :D The queue is closed until January 3rd, but I'll be working on the next chapter, which will have more Jerry in it. There's a reason he has no luck with women...and he isn't gay, LOL.
Yeah it's sorta like . . . wondering if they're going to be next to each other when they wake up or how Lupin got out of the funky cave and yeah. Bit confused about that and why didn't Nymphadora go to the 'October Meeting' just felt like a few things were left hanging. And kind of like wondering how real the dream was, because she's never had Remus turn back into a human before. Good chapter, just a bit confusing, at least to me.
Author's Response: No, it's just a dream, which will have embarrassing consequences for both Remus and Tonks, LOL. It's the end of September, which is why Tonks couldn't go to Salford, even if the pack hadn't met. Don't worry, she'll be at the October meeting! :D
Im confused. I wonder how Remus will feel about this. And how it'll affect how he is with the pac. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and after that UPDATE some more!! =)
Author's Response: Is it this part?
When she awoke, morning sunlight had crept into the cave. Her fingers were no longer tangled in the ruff of fur framing the face of a wolf. Brown hair flecked with grey spilled across her hand. She gazed into amber, human eyes and kissed the man she loved. "Remus."I just added 'morning' so it would be clear that the dream continued after Remus became human once more. He might not be thrilled with that after he wakes up!
You have a Merry Christmas too, and let me know if it's something else that has you confused!
MegaMaggot rocks my socks! i wish they were real so that I could buy their records, lol. I'm a sucker for rock bands with werewolf frontmen...jokes. ;)
Author's Response: So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)
The lead singer of Three Days Grace definitely has a lean and hungry look! :D
YAY!!!! You Rock!! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! I hope you'll think the next chapter off the richter! :D
Snape is an SOB who should have died a much more PAINFUL death than he did setting him on fire perhaps
Author's Response: I guess I won't hit you up to read my Quicksilver Quill winning Marauder Era Snape fic, then.....LOL
He isn't nice, I agree, but he was redeemable! I thank Jo for that, if not the wholesale character slaughter at the end of DH! *sniff*
