Howdy there!

Sorry for my delay in reviewing, it's Ms. Lizzie for the forums.

I really like how you chose to explore young Tonks versus the one that we meet in the books. I think my favorite piece of characterization was this paragraph: "Her mother was the princess- she was beautiful, and she did all the sorts of things princesses did. She cooked, read books, mended clothes and cleaned. Nymphadora climbed trees, played with the boys in the street, rolled in the grass and refused to clean her bedroom. That was before. But now that she was growing up- practically an adult, she understood what the most important thing really was. Jokes." I loved the contrast between Tonks and her mother. Tonks seems very aware of herself and set in herself at a young age, which I would expect from someone who was such a successful Auror.

Her father was very pleasant to read, but I wish I got a little more of his backstory, although I understand the focus was supposed to be on Tonks.

I loved the ending and her mother mourning the loss of her two sisters. This told me a lot about the mother's character without having to rely on descriptions (showing rather than telling) which I think is a real art, so well done!

Thank you for requesting, and I loved reading!

Author's Response: Hi! It's perfectly fine- sorry for taking so long to respond! I've been pretty lazy recently.

Due to her being an auror later, I couldn't imagine her being incredibly girly or anything. I wanted her to be a bit more like Ted, rather than Andromeda though still be able to have that love and respect for her mother.

I adore writing Ted, and reading about Ted, especially his backstory. I'm thinking of doing some more Ted/Andromeda stories so that I can get a chance to explore that.

I love writing about Andromeda so I just couldn't resist putting that in. I'm glad you liked it!

Thank you so much for the amazing review!
