Awwww. Carole, I was just trawling your author page because I was craving some Remus/Tonks, and I came across this :) The story is so sweet and the style is rather quirky which I found adorable. And it was just so well-written -- I liked how you intertwined old traditions with new. And I so giggled whenever I read "young wizard", lol.
Anyway, lovely story, Carole, and it's certainly satisfied my need for a Remus/Tonks story :) Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you. This was originally written as a drabble in TTB for the prompt wizard courtship. I didn't enter at the time because I was very new to the boards and scared. Then, about a year later, I decided to try it. (It nagged at me that this was the one challenge I missed) and came up this idea. Later I turned it into a stroy for Lea. ~Carole~
its awesome............so different yet so cute and right........remus is amazing and his luv for tonks is perfectly shown
thank you for writing something so good......
Author's Response: Thank you very much. This was a bit of an odd story but I'm fond of it. ~Carole~
Yay! One of my favorite authors takes on one of my favorite pairings! I love the way you've put together Andromeda's pureblood background with a super-cute take on how Tonks and Remus got back together after he left. The last section is especially well-written and touching.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. This was an odd thing to write based on a prompt given to me on the beta boards, but I had fun. Glad you enjoyed it. ~Carole~
Thank you, Carole! I really love this, and the lyrics fit perfectly. It's such a sweet end and it makes me want to forget what happened next, but I love seeing their moments of happiness. This was really lovely. b29;
Author's Response: Lea, I'm so pleased you liked it because it was a bit of a weird one to write. Thank you for reviewing. ~Carole~
I thought this was a really sweet fic, particularly as we as the reader know what happens to them. I loved the idea of mixing traditions with a modern world... as in they sort of followed the traditions, but already after they were married and she pregnant.
There's something bittersweet about it. Sweet, because it's nice to know that they had some opportunity to enjoy each other, particularly Remus as he'd lived such a hard life, but bitter because such good people deserve so much more...
Your characterisations were great, particularly of Andromeda. I really liked how she fitted in. I loved Remus' (hence your) creativity in following the steps too, it really fit his character.
So all in all, loved this fic :)
Author's Response: Thank you, Katrina. I also hate the fact that Remus and Tonks had so little time as a couple so I try and write some good times for them. Thank you for your compliments on the characterisation because these are characters I love writing and am very fond of, so it's good to know that someone shares my view. ~Carole~
