I am a college student in the US. I literally grew up reading the Harry Potter series. I am hopelessly addicted to them. Most of the Sorting quizzes I've taken put me in Ravenclaw.
I love to read, write, and listen to music. Truth be told, I couldn't survive without any of those actions. They calm my scattered brain and greatly influence my obsession with exclamation points!!!
"I'm no Ravenclaw, but I finally learnt to take no for an answer." When James stops asking Lily out, she tells him that's not Quidditch!
=D That is sooooo cute! Lucky Lily!
Author's Response: She is lucky, isn't she? A lot of guys would have moved on to another girl, but James just waited for her to come around. :)
Summary: Tonks is rich in family and friends, but the wages of a new Auror keep her short of funds. A side job brings something into her life money can't buy.
*Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance- Canon.*
Hmm... Very interesting. I like that she grabbed him and kissed him. It's very Tonks-like. :)
Author's Response: I never liked the thought that Tonks had that outburst in the Hospital Wing when she and Remus hadn't even dated. I prefer to think they were in relationship and her outburst was about commitment, about marriage, and had the best time filling in the canon gaps. :)
Poor Tonks... lusty thoughts can be very destracting. Great chapter. At the end of the last one, and the beginning of this one, "Head over Feet" by Alanis Morissette was playing. I love it when my background music matches up with what I'm reading!
Author's Response: Yeah, it is cool when the radio provides a soundtrack to a story. Yay, for you reading! :)
Uh-huh, sure you're not cliffie-aholic. Lol. Besides, it's not really a cliff-hanger, we know he want to her clothes of and make her forget her own name... Sorry, that was a bit... vulgar. It's true, though. After all, didn't take long for her to get pregnant after they were married. (I'm still not sure if I think they waited. If they did, though, it was his idea not hers! I'm sure of that much.)
Author's Response: I give Tonks some insecurities and emotional baggage from the past (the cheating ex) to work through, but absolutely, in HBP she wanted to get serious (I say married) and he was reluctant due to his low self esteem issues. Silly man.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say Tonks doesn't know her boyfriend is a werewolf... at least not at this point. I'm also going to guess that Tonks's friends do know! Very interesting.
P.S. I'm one of those friends who bites her tongue. It's a thankless job sometimes, but I get the most amazing hugs for it!
Author's Response: I think you probably bite your tongue for good reasons, and if you thought your friend was putting herself in true danger, you'd speak up. You deserve those hugs!
I've never been cheated on, but it makes me angry. Sadly, I'm the friend who bites her tongue when it comes to one of my friends. I'll make him feel like crap for it every now and then, but I'm always there when he needs to talk. Remus and Tonks are so cute together. I like that he's there for her, and it's good to know she'll be there for him when he reveals his "furry problem".
Author's Response: Being there for someone is so important. If Tonks was one of those "I love you Remus, but I can't deal with you being a werewolf" girls I've read in a few fics, she wouldn't be Tonks (she'd be what's-her-face, a girl rightfully unremembered).
You're not just a "cliffie-aholic". You are the queen master of subtle cliffhangers! Lucky for me, I don't have wait for updates! :D
Author's Response: Not waiting for updates is a definite plus, heh.
I want to reach into your story and kill that evil, cheating bastard for stealing Remus's chance to tell Tonks about his "furry little problem"! I want to subject him to the Cruciatus Curse multiple times, and center it toward one very pain-sensitive area of his vile body!!! *Trails off in a long string of profanity and insults*
Author's Response: Remus might not have told her for months, though, so the cheating bastard did them a favor (which I'm sure annoyed him considerably).
Oooh, yay! Overprotective cousin! What? It's more fun when family doesn't approve! Lol!
Author's Response: If Sirius approved he would be OOC, and the story would be boring. Couples need to fight to be together. ;)
By any chance, do those purple pustules spell the word "SNEAK"?
Author's Response: They might. :D
I really, REALLY hate that guy! He makes me want to throw things! Anyhoo, I just realized I haven't done my duty as a reader and told you just how amazing this story is! This story is more amazing than pretzel sticks with chocolate fudge icing! (Believe me, that is saying something!)
Author's Response: I love chocolate covered pretzels! I've never dipped them in cake icing, though. *makes mental note*
I swear, if Evan Rosier doesn't die slowly and painfully, I'll go to sleep right now and you won't read another review from me until I come back from my weekend visit home!!!! Great song, by the way!
Author's Response: He could die slowly and painfully . . . one day . . . .
Lol! I would have threatened to neuter him, too. Evan still isn't dead, and there's only one chapter left. I'm thinking it might be bed time! *sighs* I'm just kidding. I know you can't do anything about it now. I'll finish this one, but I probably won't make it to the sequel tonight. It's already 2am!
Author's Response: 2AM and she reviews 'cause she's still awake . . . . I'm happy you read this one. Go to sleep and "Breathe." :)
Okay, well, at least she finally admitted what the rest of us have known since forever and twenty chapters ago! You write more beautifully than a songbird sings. I even forgive you for not killing off Evan.... yet :) (What? There's a sequel isn't there? A girl can dream... Hey, dream, there's an idea. Goodnight!)
Author's Response: I hope you had lovely dreams. Thank you for giving me smiles that made my cheeks ache in a nice way, the way that's abso-bloody-lutely worth it. :)
A kiss is not just a kiss. After a disastrous Valentine's date with Cho, Harry finds himself alone with Luna and discovers what a kiss should be. Humour and Romance in a story that started with canon and went What If?
Strange, very strange, but I like it! I'd never really considered a Harry/Luna pairing. I always figured she'd end up with Neville. Very interesting, though. This shows a very brave Luna. I like it! :D
Author's Response: The last film implied Luna/Neville, didn't it? I think they would've been a nice couple, but even if all they did was share a kiss like Harry and Luna, I'm sure both would say it was worth it. :)
Summary: When her old pal Rory calls in a favour, Tonks searches for a missing girl with the help of her new love Remus and his 'dog' Snuffles
*Sequel to Once in a Blue Moon*
*Ch 20 Quote*
It was the happiest Christmas of my life.
You said Colin Farrell so all I could think of was the actor. Excellent chapter. I like that Rory was listening to Queen. That was not at all who I expected.
That kind of talk about 'wands' is what got me accused sexting. Lol! The plot is thickening. I like this story!
Author's Response: Ack, the site ate my last review reply. I hope this one goes through. I hope the person accusing you was joking!
Nope, it's definitely the sound of ultimate suffering! It's not the chapter cliff hangers, it's the sexual ones. You're slowly drowning them both in naughty frustrations, and someone's going to explode in a bad way before it's over with! At least, they would if they were real people!
Author's Response: Nobody's ever exploded from frustration...or we would have read about it in the tabloids, hehheh.
Polo!!! Oh, you didn't mean that kind of "Marco". Oops! Lol. I feel Tonks's pain. Christmas shopping is terrible.
Author's Response: Some people love it. I'd rather online shop. :D
Summary: Without plans and feeling the holiday blues, Remus accepts a dinner invitation. Overhearing another couple, the woman's personality is so vivid; he covets more than her steak. Set CoS and written to show some things are simply meant to be.
Well, if death can only delay true love, a pig fiance doesn't stand a chance! :) Excellent story!
Author's Response: Hello, lady! Thank you very much. :)
