Howdy (I'm Texan, after all)
I'm a Harry Potter obsessed person who has Hermione's hair as well as her general lack of interest in appearance. My favorite category on Mugglenet is Romance, specifically Remus/Tonks (a ship that I support in canon) and Snape/Hermione (though I ship Ron/Hermione -- albeit somewhat incredulously, because I don't know what Hermione sees in Ron -- in the books, I prefer to read S/H fanfics).
It sounds unoriginal, but I also love musicals. The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Hairspray, Camelot, etc...good stuff! And the Beatles. My love of the Beatles supports the theory that the British are better musicians and writers than we residents of the U.S. Sad, but...there you are.
For S/H shippers: If you want to read an AMAZING Snape/Hermione & others fanfic, go check out His Draught of Delicate Poison by Subversa. It really is intriguing as well as chock-full of romance. Don't be put off by Hermione/Snape if you don't ship them, as there's plenty more to the story and Subversa pulls it off spendidly.
For T/L or R/T or whatever shippers: For a great Tonks/Lupin one-shot, go to The Moment on my favorites list. It really is the best one-shot T/L fanfic that I've read.
Please read my little one-shot...I'm working on about ten thousand better ones, but I'd appreciate reads/reviews in the meantime. =)
That's all...read & review, I beseech thee! Thanks!
Summary: To qualify for Auror training requires N.E.W.T.s in several subjects – and one of them is Potions. If Tonks thinks it through, she might realize that she can do a very important favour for someone she cares a great deal about.
Good start! I'm looking forward to the nexty chapter and hoping that you'll include some Lupin-y goodness soon! =)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Lupin appears in Chapter 2...he\'s got a surprise for Tonks, but she\'s got a bigger one for him.
Summary: A few years after HBP, Remus and Tonks are married -- and expecting their first child. Remus is still working with the werewolves, but this proves even more dangerous than he thinks when a new leader is appointed, one much deadlier than Fenrir Greyback ever was.
Great story! I really liked Blaise's characterization. It was -- for lack of a better word, I'm sorry and I'm kicking myself for using it -- interesting to have him so driven by ambition. Also, nice use of the Fidelius charm there.
Maybe it's just me, but I had no idea what was coming. Pretty much the only thought that was in my head when Blaise said that there was an Order member in their midst was: "Uh-oh."
So, job well done! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Ha ha! Thank you! \"Interesting\" is fine. I was challenged to write a morally grey story featuring a...I\'ve forgotten the word...a peripheral character. Hence Blaise!
You weren\'t supposed to know what was coming, hee hee! But I\'m glad I was able to surprise you.
Thanks so much for taking the time to review!
Summary: Secret love is revealed for two people battling with their own demons, causing them to take a step back and ask some important questions...
Tonks put her hands on the sides of his face, turning it towards her, forcing him to look at her. She took a deep breath as Remus gently placed one of his hands over hers. He could feel her hand shaking under his own. She looked into his eyes.
“But do you love me?”
Check out the sequel "What Is Love?"
Can't wait for an update -- which is in the queue, I think. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Yup, the next chapter is in the queue! Thanks for reading, and thanks for your review!
Oh, so sad! Poor Remus! (I feel worse for him than for Tonks, though I'm sorry for her too!) Very good!
Author's Response: I seem to have an inexplicable incapacity to leave Remus and Tonks apart - I have to get them together! Thusly, comes thou sequel...Thanks for your review!! :D
Summary: Remus Lupin sits by a fire and ponders over his life, wife, and child.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: A 'missing scene' from OotP.
How can two Order members, having known each other a grand total of a couple of weeks, end up being known as Remus and Nymphadora Lupin? Find out, if you dare...
Rated for mild swearing. Please R&R!
Author's Response: *giggles* Merci!
Summary: In another world, Remus and Sirius were born female and fell in love.
An AU femmeslash story. Betaed by MaiaMadness.
Please let this not be a one-shot! I liked it a lot more than I was expecting I would.
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I don\'t know if I\'ll continue it or not, you\'ll have to see.
Summary: Tonks is attending Bill and Fleur's wedding. While there she advises Harry on his relationship with Ginny, and then gets a big surprise of her own.
Aw! I love it! So sweet...poor Snape is just "the Murderer" though. I guess I shouldn't be dwelling on him in a Remus/Tonks fic but...*sigh*
Anyway, great story!
Author's Response: Well, I had to mention it, but in a way that would be in character! I can\'t see Harry wanting to say that name if he doesn\'t have to!! Thanks for the review!
Summary: In which there are holidays, it is cold, Remus is utterly daft and Sirius listens to him.
Please let this not be a one-shot. I want it to go on. I was a bit confused when it switched to all italics--was that on purpose, or did you forget to [/i] it?
Author's Response: There\'s another chapter. I don\'t know why this got marked completed. Seems to have been a bit of trouble with this and I don\'t know why. It\'ll be in Q soon!
Summary: Remus is bored in class one day. New feelings are discovered - are they welcome?
Whoa. You are going to add another chapter, right? RIGHT?
Author's Response: Hehe. :] No, I\'m sorry; this is a one-shot. I\'ll think about it though. Thanks for reviewing!
