Oh dear. That was way more sad than I thought it was going to be. The fact that Remus is never really there for Tonks is a thought that deeply saddens me. Her love, in the books, was so obvious, and it's kind of just been made more real to me the more I've read fanfic about her and Remus.

Remus is the one I've read so far who will waver, who will pine after Sirius. It's sad that neither really got their happy ending. Tonks is right in that her wedding day was the saddest day of her life because she's just living as a stand in for the one that Remus really loves.

I can totally appreciate the paragraph where we're into Remus' thoughts and his missing of Sirius and what leads up to Tonks. While I could've done with another sentence or twenty, I could have the stream-of-conciousness thought. It kind of came across to me as the last wisps of Remus that Tonks has and the thoughts that run through his head. It communicates how little of Remus she actually has because he's so tangled up in missing Sirius.

It's amazing, really, what you decided to write about based off of that quote. Brilliant actually.


Author's Response: Her love is indeed obvious - and infinitely sad, I always thought - in the books. Remus is never really shown to feel the same way, though, and so this pairing is possibly the most tragic in HP. It's a reason why I rarely read Remus/Tonks; I honestly can't see these two in a mutual relationship at all.

I don't think any of the really minor characters get their happy ending in HP - certainly not the ones I like to write about. They've all died horribly by the end, anyway.

When I was writing the stream-of-consciousness-sentence, I found that it broke the rhythm I was attempting to create if I broke it up into easier, smaller sentences. I like the idea of it being both what's left of Remus and not Remus at all; he may as well be dead, too.

Aww, you are far too flattering. Thanks for your review! :)
