Liam linked me to this and I'm really glad he did. I've read some of your other stories as well, but I've never had the time to leave a review before - I don't think (unless I totally spaced it)

Anyway, I really love how this started. The idea of life flashing before your eyes. It's normally slightly overused but you gave it your own spin - making it something unique in the process.

"But it is no more than a poetic metaphor that's meant to comfort and terrify, forming that perfect moment of sublimity that people strive all their lives to reach. "

Win.

I thought the bits with Teddy were really interesting too. You really humanized Tonks. She was young, she wasn't perfect, she had flaws... things that are easy to forget when one normally reads about her. Both her and Remus tend to be glorified, but you really made them real. Relatable.

I loved it.

(and epic banner btw)

Author's Response: He did?! That was very good of him, and I'm glad that you read and reviewed this story. I have this feeling that you've reviewed something of mine before, but I can't remember what (spacing here, too :P).

I have this bad habit when writing of taking overused things and trying to rework them into something different, or showing them from a different point of view. It makes for a challenge, at the very least, and it's great to hear that it worked for this story. For some reason, it just felt right to start it off like that.

As for the Teddy thing, it's still something I'm not sure about. I wanted to make Tonks flawed and also to show that maybe she made a mistake in marrying Remus - that she maybe wasn't the right type of person for him. When reading the book, I had an issue with the idea of her being tossed off into the corner to have a baby when, before that point, she'd been an Auror on the frontlines. It was one of the things I wanted to work through in this story, and that it made her more realistic on the way is awesome. :D

Thanks for reading and reviewing, Hannah! It was fantastic to hear from you! And Em's banner is so perfect - I had to have it when I saw it. ^_^
