Jules, I think you already know how much I love Remus and how much I liked this little story of yours about him and Tonks.
However, each time I read it, I am amazed all over again by the way you've managed to get inside Remus' head and describe his entire life in so little words. I especially liked how you've laced your descriptions with expressions for various shades of red, in a way painting his thoughts, feelings and impressions.

The following are some parts I liked in particular:
"trying to push away what I wanted the most" - this is the line that can really relate to Remus the most. Is it not something he's always done - pushing away those he cared for so they wouldn't get hurt because of him?

"Had I never lain down my feverish head and dreamed of a world where my loved one's rosy silhouette could eclipse the treacherous full moon?" - this is just beautiful... I just love the way you toy with words and expressions.

"Looking at the two of you, I felt that I could take on an eternity of moonlit nights without fear." - another beautifully composed sentence. It is all Remus really needed to regain his confidence and realize his own worth - someone to love him for who he is. It only took him a bit longer to see that.

I enjoyed this story so much, this one as well as the slightly shorter version you had at eHPF. It was a definitely deserved first place and I'm not saying that just because I'm a Remus/Tonks shipper. Amazing writing, as always. :)

Author's Response: Hi Vedrana! Thanks for coming to review again :) This is the highest praise I could imagine, coming from someone who writes Remus/Tonks as well as you do. I had such a great time writing this story - it was my first drabble and a really good experience, since I'm one of those authors who needs a lot of room to make a story really work. I'm so proud that you think Remus was described well; he is one of my favorite characters and his death and Tonks's death in DH were so sad, especially because they'd had so little time to be happy together and enjoy their little family. I did have to add on a little bit to this piece because the word limit is 500, but I'm glad you like both versions. Thanks so much for your review! :) :)
