Hello! Happy Seventh-Day-of-the-Twelve-Days-of-Reviewing! :D

Tonks is a really good character to write about, not only because she hasn't been explored much in fanficiton, but because she's absolutely amazing! She's a Metamorphmagus, which is COOL, she's an Auror, AND she was in Hufflepuff! There aren't many cool Hufflepuffs in canon, which is sad, but Tonks is one of the best ones!

Tonks' insecurities about the Auror test and her first day on the job were very real--when I was applying to colleges and then moving off to college, I felt the same way! This moment that you chose to write about, the moment before she would finally get to start her dream job, is one that we all experience, and it's full of nerves and doubts. You did a wonderful job of capturing that feeling.

I love the way that, even though she was wrapped up in worrying about her first day, Tonks stopped to console Arielle. That really helps characterize her--she might be a big, bad, tough Auror, but she still cares about people. And best of all, you did all of that characterization with showing and not telling--that's my favorite thing to see. :)

This was a great one-shot! 10/10!

Author's Response: Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

Yeah, Tonks was cool to write about. I found her to be surprisingly relatable once I found a situation we sort of had in common :) I drew on many of my own thoughts and emotions in writing this piece, so it's great that they felt realistic to you.

I do think Tonks's compassion is really at the heart of her character, and it was nice to explore that here with Arielle. Glad you liked it, and felt like I did well with showing rather than telling.

Thanks for your sweet review!
