Really, truly beautiful. I think you've captured the essence of why Remus and Tonks is so appealing to me - because he's so broken down in spirit, and everyone who ever loved or cared about him is long gone that taking a chance on something and someone as vibrant and full of life as Tonks is terrifying to him and a risk he is just too scared of.

I love Tonks' defiance, that she isn't going to let him get his way even though he's trying to convince her otherwise - acting as though she is too young to understand what she's getting in to. She holds her own in ths fic and her characterisation is just lovely.

One tiny error - so tiny I can't even find it again. But you spelled 'scarred' as 'scared' in one sentence. And I have a Mac and can't figure out the bloody thing.

I also love how Sirius is still so present. There was never going to be enough time for all the years of hurt and betrayal to fade away, and you touch on this nicely.

Great fic! Very much enjoyed reading about my favourite pairing.

Author's Response: Wow. I just can't get over the two reviews you left me - that's why I've not responded to them sooner. I don't know how to express my wonder and gratitude for these amazing words about this story, one of the rare things of my own that I've truly liked.

What you've said about Remus and Tonks is why I find them an odd, yet fascinating pairing. The gap between them isn't so much about age or experience as it is personality - they don't seem suited to one another until one starts exploring their characters more closely. And Tonks is wonderful to write in any light - there's so many aspects to her, like facets on a diamond, which makes her well-suited to any type of story, even darker angst like this. This may be partially why Remus fears her - her fullness, her completeness, while he sees himself as so broken, ragged, and inhuman. I loved writing those wolfish aspects of his character in this.

I could have sworn that I've fixed that typo in the past, yet it's there again - I have fixed it now and hopefully it stays that way. :P Thanks for pointing it out.

And thank you again for this amazing review. To hear compliments like this from you has made me ridiculously happy.
