Review:Labby says:
I really enjoyed this story. Iím not sure Iíve ever read something from Tonksís POV and I loved being able to get inside her head at a time like this. I think I just read another one-shot about this same event (though earlier, when Remus leaves), but from Remusís POV, and itís just great to be able to see the difference between the two. I really liked the emotion you put into Tonksís character, and how she just had to go to the Weasleys to seek some comfort, yet she couldnít even tell them why she was there. The description you used for this story was perfectÖ I could just picture everything that was going on and I love that. Excellent story!

Author's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed the story! I've never written from Tonks' POV before and every story I've ever read about this particular moment in the books was from Remus' POV so I decided to try and get into her head and see things from her perspective for a change.

The Weasleys are, in my opinion, the perfect family - loving, generous, caring and Molly is just the ultimate mother figure to so many characters in the books. It just seemed more natural for Tonks to seek comfort there than at her own mother's. Andromeda is another one of my favorite characters, but she comes through as a stubborn, strict woman who wasn't really thrilled, in my opinion, to have her only daughter married to a werewolf more than ten years older than her, and would probably be the kind of a person to say "I told you so" instead of providing comfort and encouragement. Molly is a warmer person and it makes people confide in her, though I think Tonks has too much of her own mother in herself to speak about her troubles very openly.
This story characterizes my own version of Tonks, trying to give her more depth and complexity than she was shown to have in the actual books. I'm very glad to hear you've liked it.

Thank you so much for the amazing review! :)
