Oh, I just love Remus. He has to be my favorite HP character and you really did his sweet, caring personality justice with this lovely one-shot. It was so great to see him happy for once. Although Tonks and Remus don't really get a happy ending in the books, I think their short time together was enough to make-up for a life-time of sorrow. This story is a great elaboration on that happiness. I loved how, for once, Remus didn't fight his love for Tonks, but rather accepted it with open-arms (quite literally!).
All-in-all, I thought this story was charmingly romantic. There is so much gentleness about Remus and his tenderness to Tonks came across as realistic and genuine. I always thought that Remus must have tried to compensate for his lycanthropy by being completely restrained, though, considering the way Tonks puts things here, there is more to his make-up than control. He really is a gentleman, in every sense of the word.
This was a great piece, Shiloh. Really beautiful writing. I just loved reading this.

*places present in front of TheEmpress* Merry Christmas!!! Here are some reviews as a part of your Secret Santa gift.
I really loved this song fic! Remus/Tonks is my favorite ship and I love Lady Antebellum, and the song choice was perfect. That part of Half-Blood Prince where Tonks proclaims her love for Remus is one of my favorite scenes in the entire series (I really wish they didn't take it out of the movie) and this story flowed so nicely from it.
You conveyed Remus's emotions so well. I loved how you mentioned him finally understanding the way James felt about Lily. It was so sweet. This was just such a happy sweet story and I wish their story wouldn't end so tragically in Deathly Hallows. Great job! :)Author's Response: Thank you Sarah! And Merry Christmas, thank you for the wonderful gift :)
