I laughed long and hard at this! OOC ordinarily drives me crazy but this was absolutely hysterical! Loved it! The repeated Josh Groban references make me laugh every single time!
Oh my gosh, this was hilarious! Only Dumbledore and the Marauders... "magic drawing box"...
When Snape catches her in a compromising position and revokes Hogsmeade privileges, Tonks sees red. She plans payback and discovers that while revenge is supposedly a dish best served cold, it tastes even better hot.
*Not the usual 'Don't Stand so Close to Me' variety romance.*
Well. I was both disgusted by this and enjoyed it at the same time. ;) I will freely admit that, upon reading that it was a Snape/Tonks story, I laughed and laughed, because I had no idea how anyone could possibly pull it off, and then I clicked the link, because I knew I *had* to read it, even though I'm very, very squicky about Snanyone.
But I liked it! Though I did have that general "it's Snape, eww" feeling at the beginning of the story, it became easier to see him as an actual person and not as that horrible, greasy professor as the story goes on. Also, I'm stunned and impressed that you were able to keep them both in character, as you would think that, in trying to put Snape and Tonks together in a story, all characterization would go out the window. I also like that it started as a prank instead of some sort of long-time schoolgirl crush, because the former is far more Tonks-ish than the latter. But I definitely believed it all, and I give you serious props for that - normally I'd be rolling my eyes throughout, but I actually ended up sucked into the story and quite liking it. Excellent job! :)
Author's Response: How did I miss this awesome review! It was definitely a challenge to write, and like you I couldn't see her liking him unless she saw him as a person, not a everything-you-do-is-wrong professor, and a prank was the only way to go. Thank you so much!
Ahh, a sequel! This is hysterical! Oh my goodness, I love these! Pretty please write another one! I just adore the fact that he discovered the Dark Lord's blog, which is another one of my favourite humour fics. Thank you so much for 1254 more words of genius!
Well, what are the words I want here. Unexpected? No... The weirdest pair I have ever seen? Maybe. But I liked it. Oddly enough, I really, really liked it! Normally, I stick to the canon pairs, and occasionally non-canon pairs of characters in, you know, the same generation, but this is the first "rare-pair" that I've read, and I liked this a lot. In fact, I I loved this! I wish I was brave enough and/or a good enough writer to write a believable rare-pair like this, because I liked reading this one a lot!
Kudos to you, because that could have just as easily gone very badly, but I really enjoyed this!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I love writing strange pairings. I think it makes things a little more interesting.
Oh. My. God.
Excuse me while I try to get control of my airways, having laughed the entire time I was reading this. If there's musical parody perfection, this is probably it. FANTABULOUS!
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
I can't think of a word to describe how I felt having read this - if you could combine disturbed with awe-struck, that would be it. I had shivers run down my back multiple times. This fic was almost scarily clever. Aside from the fact that it was wonderfully written, the whole concept was nothing short of genius. I can honestly say I never thought of Peter having OCD, and yet it all fits so well - especially the obsession with fives. I mean, holy Hogwarts, this was a little freaky. I'm not sure how coherent I'm being, but I'm still a little blinded from the awesomeness. ;) Well done!!!
Ah, fluff fluff fluff fluff. I can't help myself, I just love it. This story is exactly how I imagined them to be. Both are characterized brilliantly throughout the whole story, and I just loved it. It was amazingly written... practically perfect in every way. (Can you name the source of *that* line?)
Oh, and that last line Ted says is from Rhett from Gone With The Wind.
Thank you so much for one of my favourite fanfics ever! :D
Author's Response: I'm so glad you loved it! I actually really love these two so much. I feel like I would have gotten along with them perfectly if I had known them. That line is from Mary Poppins. :) Thank you so much for the review and reading the story and loving it so much!
Oh, cute cute cute! I just loved this whole thing! I adored the fact that you made Lucius and Narcissa look so sweet, giving us all a nice look at two characters whose emotions you rarely see. Bravo!
Oh, this is awesome awesome awesome! I can't wait for another update! Everyone in every chapter I've read has been characterized perfectly, and the whole thing is just amazing! I'm super excited to read Narcissa's, its really interesting to hear what people think about certain people's endings, and Narcissa is one of my favourite characters. Great story!
Author's Response: Well, I'm over a year late, but thank you for the review! Narcissa's chapter is in the queue. I hope it lives up to your expectations!
Wow, that was just amazing. Really amazing. It was incredibly well-written, and I especially enjoyed it since Andromeda was one of those characters where I didn't hear much about them but they just stuck with me. It was definitely touching, I loved the characterization of Andromeda, it was very well done, and thought it was cool that your view of Andromeda's personality was practically identical to mine. I loved this!
Oh, I loved this! Trust Dumbledore to make things as complicated as they could possibly be! I love the way you put Teddy Lupin, Lily and James in the story as well. When the part with Andromeda talking to Teddy came up, I just about cried, in one of those "she has no idea what happened" sort of times. Your characterization of Narcissa was really funny as well! Fantastic!
Wow... I don't even know what to say after that! It was amazing, the beginning parts with the Death Eaters kind of made me nauseous, but it worked really well! All the characterizations were just perfect, especially, oddly enough, Mrs. Weasley, who I loved seeing actually do something for a change! I love this!
Author's Response: Thanks! It's been a while since I wrote that, but the newest movie kind of triggered those feelings in me again. I love writing about Lupin and Tonks; you might check out my other stories about them on Mugglenet--The Return, Nightmare of the Wolf, The Dream Game and The Sacrifice. I'd like to hear what you think.
Wow... just wow... that was really, really good. You have a real way with words, and... oh my goodness that was just chilling. Amazing story!
That was so cool! The beginning pulled me in, and it had me locked in until the end! The whole thing about Metamorphmagi being a threat to the statue of secrecy never actually occurred to me until now, and now that I think about it, that would be a real problem! I really love that song as well, it was like a little tiny firework seeing those lyrics! I really liked the fact that Tonks didn't have to cry repeatedly to get Remus. This fic was an absolute delight!
Author's Response: Oh, I dislike weeping and wailing Tonks. She was an Auror for Merlin's sake and didn;t spend all her time crying - LOL. I know she was depressed in HBP, but she was also determined. Thank you very much for the review. I have a chaptered fic up concerning this pair (Apparently Asleep) - you might like that. Thanks again ~Carole~
Why oh why do you insist on making me cry? Oh my goodness, that was just so beautifully, heart-wrenchingly perfect, one of the best Tonks fics I have ever read, (and believe me, I've read a lot of them). Just stunning.
Author's Response: Thank you for your review. I will admit, I still can't read this one-shot myself without crying. If you are in the mood for another cry fic, my other one, A Mother Remembers is Molly's story as she prepares to bury Fred. Thanks again.
This was very, very good. Completely unique, and I also got an interesting perspective on Dudley and Aunt Petunia. I would love it if you wrote the rest of it, please do!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I will try and finish this ... some day. I'm currently writing a story about Lily when she's much older, and it's possible that this could link into it. Thanks again, it's much appreciated. ~Carole~
Well, first off, I salute you for writing on this topic, it must have been difficult, but there really is nobody better to hear a story on topic like this from than somebody who truly understands it, somebody who has lived it. It must have taken courage to post something like this that comes from so close to home, and I commend you for it.
Okay, on to the story. I honestly can't wait to read more! I'm very curious about Cho, and I'm also interested to find out what's going on in Andromeda's head. I see you haven't updated this particular story in a while, but I would really love to read more!
I liked this a lot! It felt very real and very believable, definitely lacking the unrealistic melodrama that many other D/A fics end up with. A few particular lines stuck with me, mainly this one.
"She stands on wet grass, shoes slipping, sinking, sticking in the mud, surrounded by hard grey tombstones that graze her hands when she tries to touch them, and all the ashes buried beneath her."
That line there just gave me chills. This was amazing!
Ooh this sounds cool! I want to know about the danger, tell me tell me tell me!
This is really good, your characters are cool and the level of description is phenomenal. I'm super excited for when they get to Hogwarts!
Please keep writing and posting, I know it's been a year but I'm really curious now!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! And I'm sorry for not updating, its just that I was so busy with my exams and then I had a writers block and so much to edit that I completely gave up on this. Now that exams are over, I finally got my hand on this thing, and I assure you I'm gonna update soon - probably within this month! Thanks again for reading! --Nadia
