Hello! I'm here from the Twelve Days of Reviewing over at the forums. :)

I thought that this was a really good look into Tonks' childhood. I usually see a lot of Remus/Tonks, but this was different. And I liked it!

I can easily imagine Tonks as a little tomboy/prankster, eager to defy anyone who tells her to behave herself. The gingerbread men can certainly attest--she's awfully set on doing what she wants to do, when she wants to do it. :)

Awww, sad Andromeda feels! You've portrayed her as missing her sisters, and I really think that's so true. They stayed with a bad crowd while she was blasted off the family tree, but they loved each other, once upon a time. It is a mark of Tonks' already-showing amazing Hufflepuff-ness that she ocmforted her mother. As Andromeda said, she may not have her sisters any longer, but at least she has Ted and Dora to love her.

I know that this story was supposed to focus on Tonks, but I think it's awesome that you delved into her parents' minds as well. Ted likes A Christmas Carol--probably his mum read it to him growing up. Andromeda misses her sisters, but wouldn't have her current life any other way. Christmas is all about families, and I'm glad that you've shown that in this one-shot. :)

After all, no one is too old for Christmas.

Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays!

Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for choosing my story to review!

I'm a massive Remus/Tonks shipper myself and that had originally been my plan, but this came to me and I thought it would be interesting to write.

I got that vibe from the older Tonks. I can't imagine her wearing pretty dresses and playing with dolls, she just doesn't seem like the type to me. I always pictured her as being a little more trouble than that!

I love Andromeda as well. I think that she would miss her sisters- I don't think she ever would have stopped. I wanted to show how she'd still think of them.

I just couldn't pass up the chance to dive into a bit of Ted/Andromeda. I definitely think they would be a big part of Tonks' life, especially at that age.

Thank you so much for this review and I'm sorry I didn't get to it sooner. I hope you had a lovely holidays!
