Hello! I'm here for the Second day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing! :D

I really liked looking at Tonks' life as a child, This is the first time I've ever read anything about little-girl Tonks and you did a fantastic job of writing it. From the canon JK gave us, it's easy to imagine her as a mischeivous, tomboyish little girl and you've done a great job characterising her. I loved the little remarks she made about holding the Santa lie above her parents to get her supplies and how she insisted that her days as Princess Nymphadora were long over.:P

Hearing abbout what kind of mischief Tonks got up to as a child made me laugh, it was great when she told us about throwing the tadpoles on Robbie's face and discovering a love of playing 'jokes' on other people, that was just so endearing and lovely.

I think you did a really good job of capturing the happy family life she had as a little kid. It's so clear that she's loved by her parents and she loves them as well, and it was all so sweet, like how her mother kept calling her a little devil but let her get away with eating the gingerbread, I loved reading about it all. :)

Another thing I really enjoyed was the characterisation of Andromeda. It is realistic that she would miss her sisters, because they were sisters and before she was exiled they must have been quite close to each other. And I loved seeing about how Nymphadora comforted her mother, it was such a lovely family moment.

Ted was a wonderful daddy as well, how he cared for his wife and child was just so sweet. I loved the loving relationship you showed between him and his wife as well, they must love each other so much for Andromeda to leave her family for him and I'm so happy you showed us that.

This was a lovely oneshot and I really enjoyed reading it. Great work! :)

Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for reviewing :)

I've only read one or two things about Tonks as a child so I wanted to give it ago. I'm glad that you think that she was characterised well- it was one of my biggest worries about this story.

I don't think that Andromeda could have ever truly gotten over leaving her sisters, no matter what happened. I really wanted to show that.

Ted is just lovely. I think he's fast becoming one of my favourite characters, and he and Andromeda are perfect together.

Thanks again for your lovely review!
