Summary: Written in response to the Strange Brew Challenge over at LJ's Snuna community. My prompt was "Luna has a job interview with Snape. Much to his annoyance, she turns out to be the only one suitable for the position." The story leads up to and then ends with the interview itself.
i love snape and luna together in whatever context!
Author's Response: Thank you! I completely agree--their interactions always have great potential because--at least on the surface--they're such total opposites, lol!

Summary: Nymphadora Tonks lives under a shadow. Both her cousin and her aunt are in Azkaban believed to be in league with Voldemort. She knows Bellatrix deserves to be there- but Sirius?
Remus Lupin is an outsider. Heâ€™d once had three good friends- now two are dead and the third has been locked up for murder and betrayal.
They had met once before, when she was a child, but as Tonks grows up they find themselves thrown together- far too closely for Remusâ€™ comfort. Heâ€™s always yearned for a normal life but knows that is impossible. Can Tonks convince him that he deserves happiness?
Nominated for a 2009 QSQ award in the Best canon Romance category. Thank you.
Hi equinox, i've read all the chapters and meant to comment, but could not login until now! I really liked the opening chapters though I am not sure Remus
would be so quick to kiss Tonks at 17 and when they had only just met...Given that he makes such a fuss in OOP about their relationship, i really see tonks being the one that would have given the first kiss and pushed him into it.
Oh, well, there is so much else going on in this fiction...loved the 'hit on the dancefloor' joke and the cliffhanger for the next chapter!!
Author's Response: Hi there, thanks for the review. Hmm, the kiss. Okay, whilst I agree with you that it isn't in his character to kiss her because of what we know later, I don't think Remus is in his normal frame of mind at that point. First off he's recovering from becoming a werewolf, then he's confronted by Sirius' cousin, fed Veritaserum and relived past events. He also had her applying salve (which he was quite embarrassed about). Finally, they return to Hogsmeade and he's become a Marauder again. She's there and not holding back in any way. Remus acts on instinct and then his reticence kicks in and he pulls back. That was my reasoning anyway. Thanks again ~Carole~
