Tonks' world has fallen into shadow. Voldemort has returned, the Order of the Phoenix has risen, and Sirius is slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. Tonks needs more than determination to fight the darkness. She needs Remus.
I like this story a lot, your characterizations are great, I especially love Sirius.
All I really wanted to say was that I love the way you describe Harry through Nymphadora's point of view. I know he's not mentioned very much, but still, it made me see Harry in a different light. I don't know if this makes any sense, but I like him more than I used to, I just felt so much more sympathetic towards him after reading your (Tonks') take on things.
Thanks for the great fics!
Author's Response: It makes perfect sense and all depends on the point of view, doesn\'t it? In my D/G stories, you wouldn\'t like Harry much, because Draco has about as objective a view of the Boy Wonder as The Chosen One has of him! :D
I\'m so happy you love Sirius. I think he deserves to have such an integral role that when he\'s gone, it leaves such a gaping hole, Shadow of Grief is the only way to describe it.
Just wanted to say that, even though I know the song and knew how it would end, I still had tears in my eyes when I was finished reading.
That was a great first fic! I enjoyed reading it.
Author's Response: Oh thanks so much. My first review! I was so happy when I saw this I was jumping around. I\'m sorry you cried but sometimes its good to cry. Thanks again! ~Katty
Narcissa wears a mask of lies and dances through life. One-shot.
What a beautiful, and at the same time sad story! I love it. Narcissa is one of the characters in the books that I really want to know more about, and I love the way you presented her. I really enjoyed the mention of Andromeda and her kindness, it was just, (how do I explain it?)...well, I just really liked it! Thanks for the great story.
Author's Response: You're welcome! Thanks for the wonderful review!
Severus wasn't a white knight content to be ennobled by the purity of his affection. He felt more like a black knight, greedy to possess his lady fair. Although he was willing to terrorise peasants and burn villages to complete his quest, could he slay the dragon of pride to make a romantic gesture?
I enjoyed reading this story, and the one that comes before it. I love your portrayal of Tonks, she's cool (I'm also reading Moonlight and Shadow) and believable.
While infrequent, the interactions between Snape and Tonks mentioned in the books has always made me wonder if there was something 'there' at some point. Whatever that 'something' could've been I have no idea, but I like reading about my two favorite characters in the same story.
Author's Response: In the R/T series, the something \'there\' is her grudging awareness that Snape has a sexy voice...and his reluctant amusement over it. They\'ll develop a friendship of sorts (snarky vs. smart mouthed) in the HBP story, but this will be the only dimension in which never-admitted admiration turns into a love affair.
Thank you for loving Tonks and enjoying the story! :)
I really enjoyed the story. It's nice to see Peter presented as something other than an incompetant lackey.
It would be interesting to see what sort of reaction an oversized rat would get from unsuspecting Slytherins!
Author's Response: Thanks! I agree; that could be a mighty interesting moment coming on.
I just wanted to say that I love the story! I like the way the realtionship between James and Lily is changing and developing. The characters are great, I think you portray them very realistically. I can't wait for the next chapter! :)
Author's Response: Yay, you finally had chance to read the other chapters :) I really tried to think it through before writing it all how I wanted the relationship between Lily and James to change and develop, so I\'m glad it transfers into my writing very realistically. Thank you for reviewing!
Just wanted to stop by and say that I really enjoyed this chapter.
Carmen seems like a great character!
Author's Response: Thanks! :) I hope that you\'ll stick around to read the rest!
That was a great story! I pretty much echo what the other reviewers said! Selina is a cute character!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I did like Selina as a character. I started out with her being a little too innocent, but I think the way things turned out with Millicent helped her turn out as a much more satisfactory Slytherin. Thanks again.
Wow! What a powerful story! I always thought that Dumbledore wasn't being completely honest when he told Harry what he saw in the mirror, but I never gave it much thought. Now that I've read your fic I can't imagine him seeing anything other than what you've written! It really makes sense! :)
(PS enjoy DH)
Author's Response: Thank you! :D Hehe. *goes to email you back*. Enjoy DH too!!! I think we *all* will, although I\'m feeling sick all the same.
[p]I really liked this story! I've never really thought of how Remus and Sirius' first meeting after all thoses years would have been like. I think the way you've portrayed it was excellent! I imagine it would've been incredibly uncomfortable and awkward at first.[/p]
Heh heh, sorry about my last post, I thought I had to use formatting.
Anyway, it really was an excellent story and I think it was very well written. I liked all the subtle little references and nuances to expressions, reactions, movements.
Author's Response: Thanks!
