I wish I could articulate how this story makes me feel. I am such an ardent Remus/Sirius shipper and this dark, angsty Remus is my head canon and this story is just absolutely perfect. All these words and feelings that hurt but this is my canon. I don't know how you do it. It's like you've crawled into my head and you've described everything I've ever thought about Remus/Tonks in this stream of consciousness kind of madness.

I never really understood that relationship, and maybe part of it is because I love Remus/Sirius so much, but it just seemed to come out of nowhere - Tonks loving Remus, you know? And you sort of give us an explanation that was missing in canon and it makes me sad, because Tonks will never be enough for Remus. The only part of her he so desperately clings to is her ability to turn into someone else that he loved more. The bit about her wedding being the saddest day of her life made me sad. I usually don't feel sympathy for Tonks (I'm slightly bitter about that relationship, you see) but you've made me feel sort of bad for her, especially in Remus's part when you reveal how she changes her image and she still isn't perfect and Remus really isn't there to care much.

I like the repetition from both sides. For Tonks it's all Remusremusremus and Remus is "Sirius was there" and it's like they're both mourning the loss of someone who was hardly there to begin with.

I still can't really tell you how much I love this story. You have such a talent with words that gives me pause, that when I'm done reading it, I'm at a loss for words - hence the rambling reviews.

Will you please write more Remus/Sirius? For me? There aren't enough quality writers out there who write my OTP that make it worth reading anymore and I have a feeling you could write wonderful things.

Author's Response: We have the same head canon! You've no idea how happy that makes me. I love Remus/Sirius because they are so so full of angst and it's just beautiful in its ugliness; Tonks/Remus is just ugly, really.

I think the only thing - the *only* thing - that separates me from most of the others who sail the great ship HMS Wolfstar is that I loved Tonks first and only afterwards started shipping R/S. This is generally not the case with R/S shippers, and so Tonks is sort of portrayed as an annoying pre-teen fangirl who got lucky, which is unfair. She's an Auror in difficult times who's won the respect of Moody and still manages to keep a sense of humour, for God's sake. Anyway. Mini-rant over. On with the response to your fantastically ego-inflating review.
I like that I made you feel bad for her. If I can make a Wolfstar shipper feel bad for Tonks, then I consider my job done.

The repetition was intended to bring to mind mourning, because honestly, they are both mourning for their lost loves. (I never thought I'd be able to say something like that with a straight face.) If they both let go, they'd be much happier people, but they never quite manage to reach that point before they die.

Your reviews are a lot less rambly than this hugely inadequate response.

I will totally write more Remus/Sirius! You don't have to worry about me stopping any time soon, honest. In fact, I'm taking part in the RS Games over on LiveJournal, which is turning out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. :D
