Chapter: Ways To Say Goodbye

I always think that the tragedy of Andromeda Tonks is largely ignored in the books and in fanfiction. She loses her husband, daughter and son-in-law to the war, and although she is left with a grandson, the knowledge that her Black family is responsible for so much of her unhappiness must have been incredibly disturbing for her. So, I very much like the set up here, and the story you have told. It’s beautifully written and the chemistry between Ted and Andromeda is palpable. I very much enjoyed their very sensual goodbye to each other. You didn’t skirt around them very probably having sex on their last together, and you wrote it beautifully. The line about the shadows merging into one was lovely. I do find so often in fanfiction that sex is seen as the preserve of teenagers, so it was refreshing to read of two fortysomethings still finding passion together.

I think there’s an error with your timeline, though. In the books, we hear Ted say that he’s only just met up with Dean, so to me that implies that it wasn’t a pre-planned escape together, but both chanced on each other. Ted and Dean knowing each other before, meeting up and planning to run off together seems fairly unlikely, partly because their age disparity doesn’t give them much commonality to have met before.

That was a minor quibble, though, and I very much liked the story. You brought Ted and Andromeda alive, so well done. ~Carole~

Aww. So cute! I really liked it. It was so cruel that Andromeda and Ted were split. Nice writing! :)

Author's Response: Thank you :) I always thought they had the best story, but we barely met them in the books.
