I don't know how I missed this fic earlier but I'm so glad I read this! I sort of wish HPFF would make it possible to post shorter than 500 word pieces so each of these could be on their own, but it's not really a problem.

Anyway, that's not the important thing! The important thing is that these are amazing, albeit devastating/heartbreaking. I feel like each one is a perfected little piece; they're short but just the right length to convey a moment.

And what well constructed moments they are! Each one feels very believable--real and painful yet beautiful in their complexities. I have no clue which my favorite is; they're all so great!

You've written both Remus and Tonks spot on. Both of them are so multi-dimensional and you've captured that brilliantly! My heart breaks for Tonks a little more each time and it's hard not to want to reach through the screen and throttle Remus for being such an idiot.

All of these snippets are the kind that'll stay in your head for days--they're captivating. I love that it's not a long fic but rather a series of moments that add up to an experience--I've tried writing like this and it can be difficult but very effective!

Are these in chronological order? If so, I hope we get to see Remus realize what a fool he is in the end! After such an angsty fic I'd love a little fluff :)

All in all, great work! I adore this and I can't wait to read more!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a long and detailed review! I'm so glad you like the drabbles and flattered you think I write Remus and Tonks well. They're my favorite HP couple and I strive to keep them in character, which is not that easy since their characters are not as detailed in the books. But they are such real characters to me that sometimes I almost feel I know them in person.
I know what you mean - I love Remus with all my heart, but still want to whack him over the head with something. He can really be impossible sometimes.

I'm actually quite new with writing drabbles and it really is a lot harder than it looks. That's why these are not really drabbles per se, rather really short short stories, because I don't seem able to write anything shorter than 500 words :)

And, to answer your question, yes - they are meant to be in chronological order. A few of the middle ones deviate from that order a bit, but the last two are post-HBP. Although, I can't really promise there will be much fluff...

Again, thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it!
Hugs,
BR
