I saw you had a Remus/Tonks one-shot and it seemed a great place to leave the second review!
I really liked the idea of the talking mirror. It fits in perfectly with the magical world, and it created a rather humorous part compared to how nervous Remus was. His frayed robes reminded me of Ron at the Yule Ball when he had frayed robes, hopefully this has a better ending.
I felt so bad for him, as you could tell how badly he wanted everything to go well, and then he canít find a way to get there. Then he tries and finds other ways, in the end flying. That would make a pretty cool entrance then, as I donít think many people can say they flew to their first date.
I guess the date did start off ok, with Remus being all cute and nervous, and them being able to talk. I liked the inclusion of the werewolf activist, as it made sense that there would be one. It was nice to see Remus being excited about something as he doesnít always seem like it, but then there was Tonksí annoyance to deal with about whether it seemed as if he was ditching her or not.
Then that bit about Remus asking to borrow a pen from Tonks, and to find out that her bag was smoking! It just seem to be going downhill from there, and I wanted to run away and hide. Then Tom coming along and chucking them out, I thought it was all over. Well, I knew they would end up together but I thought that date would be a disaster.
I liked the mention of Fred, George and Molly. It was nice to include them, as they always seemed close to them in the books. Of course, they would have to disrupt Remus and Tonksí first date, however. At least the ending made up for it, with that lovely kiss, which was just the perfect touch to a very sweet one-shot!
Author's Response: Hey there, Kiana!
Remus/Tonks was quite an adventure for me as I'd never written them before, and pairing was given to me randomly.
I admit I did enjoy writing the talking mirror- I'm so glad you say it fitted in with the magical world, because that's exactly the impression I was hoping for! Ahaha- I hadn't thought of poor Ron and his frayed robes, but I can see what you mean, now!
I always imagined that Remus would be kind of stressy about the relationship, seeing as it started off a bit uncomfortably. I think being able to say you flew to your first date is one of the perks of the magical world :P
I'm glad that the reference to the Weasleys didn't feel too forced. Like you say, they do seem close in the books, so hopefully it feels realistic.
And it's great to hear that you liked the kiss- I seem to like writing happy endings :P Thankyou once again for a really great review!
