I'm a recent convert to fanfiction with a fixation on Remus/Tonks, though I also love any pairing that is canon (yes, I'm a book nazi). After reading the Shoebox Project over on lj, I'm afraid to read anything Marauder Era, since that is absolutely magnificent. It is, in fact, what converted me to fanfiction, since I used to hate it. I always read badly-written, ridiculously-paired, character-destroying fanfics, so I hated it until I read Shoebox and realized that it can be good. I'm trying to follow their pattern and make my writing and characterizations as true as possible. Please let me know anything I can do to improve!
For now, I'm sticking to one-shots that (hopefully) give some insight into the characters. I tend to write late at night, when my mind is a bit mixed up, so expect some rather stream-of-consciousness type things.
Summary: In every story, there are missing scenes: smaller stories that don't make it into the main plot, but that subconsciously happen all the same. Harry Potter is no different — behind the scenes were the makings of a love that surprised us all.
Summary: I've been wondering for a while now about the perfume Ron gave Hermione in Ootp. this is my version of how, and why, he got it.
Summary: The wedding of Bill and Fleur has arrived after weeks of painful memories and self-blame for Harry. Friendship, patience and love are tested as tensions run high after 6th year. How is Harry going to cope with his break-up with Ginny? Especially with so much love in the air...
Summary: Arianna Perry just wants someone to talk to, maybe even be her friend. Charlie Weasley wants someone to like him for who he is, and not because of his Quidditch talent. When Ari and Charlie meet, a strong friendship bonds the two. However, being "just friends" seems impossible to both...but is risking their friendship for a possible love worth it?
Girl Meets Wolf; or The Unlikely Love Story of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks by hannahlinnekamp
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 29]
Summary: Behold! Here is the story of what happened behind the scenes in OOTP and HBP, the story of a feisty Metamorphmagus who falls in love with a hesitant werewolf.
Chapter one, Call me Tonks, describes their first encounter. It takes place at the beginning of OOTP.
Read and review, but most of all, enjoy!
PS: Does not contain HBP spoilers, but further chapters will (but you really should have read it by now, of course).
Edit: I had always planned to continue this tale, but never had the time. Unfortunately, in light of recent tragic events in Deathly Hallows, I'm really not very motivated to write the rest of the story... So this is the first and only chapter. Sorry guys. Still, enjoy!
Summary: When Remus meets Tonks for a drink at the Three Broomsticks, he gets rather more than he bargained for...
