This was so good! If I wasn't reading this in a public place (at the library FYI) I would totally be crying because of the end! Definitely one of my favorites :)
Remus had to add that bit at the end, didn't he. He couldn't just be happy and live in the moment. Sigh.
I really liked your story. I currently belong to SPEW, so I should probably be writing reams about your characterization, plot, descriptions, and pointing out a few errors you might want to fix, but I didn't want to analyze your story. I wanted to experience it along with the characters--so I did.
Thanks for making me smile along with Tonks!

Author's Response: I was actually trying to use that last bit from Remus as a foreshadow to their marriage; which sort of came out of the blue in the series. "Til death do us part," is a wedding vow. Besides, death didn't part them. They died together and are still together beyond the veil. :) Thank you for wanting to experience instead of analyze. That's very sweet of you. Feel free to go back and analyze, though. I'm sure there are some things I could clean up. Thank you so much for your review and the tip!
Even with the overuse of the f word, I enjoyed the story--especially the rainbow hair. And the language sounds like it could be the way they talked at that moment.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'll admit the f-word is overused. I might go back and cut it out in a few places, but it goes with the song. The rainbow hair was a fun thought. I figured Tonks would be happy beyond her normal, bubble-gum pink to see that Remus can't live without her anymore.
Hi there. I really liked this -- there aren't enough decent Remus/Tonks stories out there. I've always wondered about what went on with Remus and Tonks and I thought this was a really sweet missing moment.
My only criticism, really, is the use of the f-word. It just seemed unnecessary, to me. I'm not a prude in any way -- I could swear for Britain, lol -- but I thought in this context, it just seemed a bit gratuitous and unnecessary.
Well done on a first fic, though :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing! I also wondered what happened. They went from arguing about having a relationship to married within a month or two. About the f-word, I pretty much only used it when I was referencing the song this fanfic is based on, "F**kin' Perfect" by Pink. For example, the song says, "Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel like you're less than f**king perfect," and Tonks tells Remus, "So, don't you ever, ever feel like you're less than f**king perfect." Then, after that part, Remus is quoting her. I really appreciate your review. I love reviews. They make me smile so brightly the sun shields its eyes! Happy Reading, GinnyPotter711
