OMG that was sweet. I have to admit I broke down and bawled. My mom is gone and her birthday was Halloween. You have to wonder how Teddy grew up. He's an interesting character to explore. Thanks. :-)
Oh! I love it! I get the sense there is some special reason she's come this Halloween, and that it may be the only time she can, and that makes me want to read more...
Must have been a full moon...
Very nice touch, btw, his not having thought Muggles would know about Halloween. Tell me, are they at Grimmauld Place?
Author's Response: Grimmauld Place- now why have I not thought about that before? Harry would've easily given it to Andromeda and Teddy.. But I think they live downtown, for some reason.. Thanks very much for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed the story :)
This was very sweet, and I very much wanted to read more! Knowing what we know about ghosts, it's unlikely Remus or Tonks would have stayed around, even for Teddy, but the idea of setting this on Halloween, when the veil is thin and souls can pass between the two world is very believable and a great premise. I only wanted to know *why* Tonks appeared on this Halloween, and not another. It would seem that for something like that to happen, there would need to be a good reason, and I'd be curious what you were thinking about Tonks' visit to Teddy.
I really liked your characterization of Teddy, especially the parts about him struggling to control his powers. And his reactions to the Muggles were great. ;) This was a very cute and well-written story - happy writing as you continue! :)

Author's Response: What a lovely review! I'm thrilled to 'hear' that you liked this little story. That is a very good question; why indeed did Tonks choose to come at that particular Halloween? Somehow, I doubt that 'because I needed to write a ghost drabble for a challenge' is a good answer ;) Thanks so much for the review, Gina.
