Review:Jchrissy says:
Okay, what I find most difficult about Remus is the fact that he detest himself so much, and he's not a coward. So, he can't detest himself enough to end his life, because I believe if he really wanted to he would. Or maybe he feels like he deserves to stay alive and miserable?

You have balanced that line between detesting himself but not enough to end his own life, perfectly. You turned Tonks into a way to strengthen your piece, when usually her presence weakness Remus/Sirius stories. Her being so unaware of Remus's love, was sad yet realistic.

Your imagery made this story very real, I loved imagining every scene.

Tonks is his last tie to Remus.. now that is a new twist I have never read, and I am amazed at the simplicity of that, and you really made me believe it.

I do think Remus truly loved Tonks, but I also think that they were destine for destruction. The last of the the Marauders falls... ;(.

Wonderful story, Amanda! Sorry this review was mainly gush!

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks for coming by this story, too! (By the way, 'mainly gush' is never a bad thing! Haha.)

Yep, that's sort of how I see Remus - I don't know if he would ever have the nerve to end his life, perhaps because he feels like he needs to keep suffering, for whatever reason. (I kind of hate that I can't ever find a happy!Remus fic that isn't set in the Marauder era, but I get why. I never write him happy as an adult either. It just can't seem to work.)

I'm also glad that Remus/Tonks worked within this for you. It was hard to fit it in there, but I didn't want to just throw her aside and pretend like she didn't exist (sort of like I have to do with James in Snape/Lily stories). I think she deserves a lot of credit in this imagined universe, where she acknowledges that she might be 'second choice' and still loves Remus despite his confusing feelings.

Thank you so much for this lovely review :)
