Aw, this was so... sad! And heartbreaking! And... aw...!
You're right, the banner does tie everything together in this story. It really is a nice banner, isn't it?
ANYWAY, I'm here as requested, and also because you entered my challenge, so it all works out well, doesn't it? ^.^
Let me just say that this was... beautiful. Really poetic, in a way, and I especially loved the part about the "Is there anything more perfect than the rain?". Everything just... fit! It all flowed really well, leaving the reader in AWE of your word-choice (OK, so maybe not everyone was in AWE, but I was. And they SHOULD be XD).
I really liked the characterizations of both Remus and Tonks in this piece. They are totally in-character. Even though we don't know much about their home lives from the books, they just seem to fit into what they were saying and doing here, you know?
And like, I said, I was just... wowed by this. I mean, you always take such simple concepts and turn them into something lovely, don't you? I mean, I guess everyone could write about a sad pregnancy and make it boring and sad and all, "my husband doesn't love me. oh well." But this was just so... different from all that! It was so unique and refreshing, even though people have written similar concepts before. So definite kudos to you for that. In fact, have a basket of 'em.
Yeah, so, I'm awed. I thought it was great, and I have no complaints. Unfortunately, it did not make me cry, though maybe I was just too wrapped up in it to think about crying. Lovely job, Kalina. :)
Author's Response: Aw, Rin! Ha, I didn't realize I'd requested you and entered the challenge! XD My bad. I'm happy you liked the banner - I loved that picture of Natalia Vodianova.
Well, in a sense, Tonks's POV was also kind of my own. I adore the rain, I love being outside when it does rain, and it was drawn from a teenage relationship where I liked the boy much more than he could ever have liked me. You thought they were in-character? O___o
Wow. I certainly didn't. It was my first time writing R/T, so I'm happy you liked it! I'm so pleased that you liked it - even if it didn't make you cry (well, personally, I didn't think it would have made me cry, but Susan and Gubby encouraged me to enter it in the challenge, so oh well XD). Thank you so much for this lovely review! ^__^
