Hey Julie! The House Cup has got me on a reviewing spree today, and I really like this story, so I thought I'd stop by :)

Remus/Tonks is one of my favorite pairings, and I think you're doing an awesome job with them! I love your Remus: he's very considerate, and I just love how sweet he is to Tonks (even after the kissing incident last chapter :P). And his meeting with Scrimgeour shows his bravery in wanting to help the Ministry, and I was disappointed for him when he got turned down. Still, he's one of my favorite characters in the series, and I really like the way you write him :)

As for Tonks, I love her as a character and especially as a narrator. Her voice is so much fun to read because it sounds just like her. She's funny and doesn't take herself too seriously, and her thoughts about Remus just make me smile so much! I can't wait to see how their relationship changes over the course of the story.

The bathroom scene was fun, and it was great to see the kids get some face time. I love this line: "She only managed to hear Ginny scream (or was it Ron?)" You've got a knack for subtle humor like that, and I think that's one of the things that makes this story stand out :)

I'm glad you decided to expand this! I've been following it, and I just never stopped by to review (shame on me, I know). But just know that I'm a fan, and I hope to see more updates in the future :)

Author's Response: Hey Maggie! I'm sorry for how long this has taken me to respond to this lovely review! Been out of town and completely missed all of the house cup fun, but I'm here now :)

Remus and Tonks are by far my favorite pairing. And.. Remus is my favorite character! He's really trying to push the whole incident aside and work on establishing a.. friendship? I don't know yet if friendship is the right word but we'll go with that.. with Tonks whereas she believes Sirius is still out to get her :)

He got turned down because of Umbridge. I'm working on keeping this as true to OoTP as I can and while it never actually mentions Remus 'having a flat' it mentions he moves in to Grimmauld Place.

But I'm going off on tangents :)

I was a bit worried about the Tonks narration so I am happy to hear you like it, and that it sounds in character. I just see her as this fun loving, loves life person and compliments Remus so well. I'm excited to see how they will come together too! I'm still working on the 'when' idea but hopefully it will all come together soon!

There was one little line in OoTP.. -"Tonks joined them for a memorable afternoon in which they found a murderous old ghoul lurking in an upstairs" - and that's where that whole bathroom scene came from :) I'm glad the humor works for you! I know the tone of the story is lighter than the books but I don't think I'd ever want to write something more serious :)

I'm so happy to hear you like it! I'm about half way through writing chapter four so hopefully I can work through it in good time. Thank you again for such a lovely review!
