Ooh, now you love me forever, I'm leaving you a review! :D Its Gabbie here by the way, thought I'd stop by and plop this review on you today before I went back to typing and such myself. :D
So, I have only read a few Remus/Tonks stories so far and I really like the pair of them. Your Tonks is extremely funny and I really like her attitude, she's sort of just blowing in the breeze and taking things day by day.
I was really laughing when she kept mentioning how people kept talking about her being an Auror like it was so surprising. Hahhaa. Just cause she's clumsy doesn't mean she's not smart you know! Of course, there is a bit of mystery about the Order and I'm glad that you added that in.
Tonks meeting Remus wasn't what I expected either and I'm so relieved that you didn't go for the overblown romantic I-just-happened-to-be-gazing-at-you-longingly-from-the-other-side-of-the-room thing which would have been annoying. :p
So Remus himself is interesting but I wish I could have had more on him for a minute but I think you have alot of room to get all that done. :D
The initial Order meeting was great and I was glad to see that Tonks wasn't falling in line with it so easily and there were a few jitters. This falls in line with canon really well too, I liked Moody's mentioning of what happened in The Goblet of Fire.
Always gives me the chills! But then again, Snape was in the room...
Anyway, what I really liked about this was the details you put in with her parents and her mother's relationship with her sisters/cousins etc. I thought that added alot of depth to Tonks and that last little bit with Sirius made me sort of sad. :(
But anyway, on to CC's! Hm, there weren't many, just that there should be less commas in places and about a few spelling things but a quick read through will get rid of those. :D
I hope you update alot for this by the time I get back! ;)
Author's Response: Hey Gabbie!
Yeah I've never really read that many Remus/Tonks stories, so I guess that's why I decided to write one! I'm glad that you liked Tonks, as I really do love her, and wanted to do her proud!
I guess with the Auror thing, it was the sort of the reaction I would imagine she would get, as I would probably have that thought about her as well!
Hahaha, if they saw each other like that for the first time, it just wouldn't have been realistic. Their relationship is so quirky, I guess the way they met sort of represented that!
With Remus, I didn't want him to make a big impact on Tonks, as I think their attraction for one another took longer to develop, and I wanted to show that!
I'm glad that you liked the Order meeting, and of course Tonks wouldn't fall in line, she's a little rebel in my eyes. The thing with Moody gives me the chills too, but I felt it was only right to include it!
I have edited this chapter, and the revised version is in the queue, I wanted it to be updated before you read it, but hey validators have lives too!
I hope it's updated a lot as well, and I'll look forward to your return :D
