"Remus, can you please get on with it?"
I'm still laughing out loud at that one.
Fantastic ending to a fantastic fic.
Is there any other place where you keep your fics besides ff?

This ending is just perfect in every sense. And the chapter is good too. I love the dialogues, I think yours might be one of the best takes on Tonks I've ever read. The words and the way those words are said is just perfect!
I did good on waiting for reading this second chapter, so I'm going to do the same, and wait for a bit before going on to the third. I'm looking forward to it!
Congrats on a great fic.

This is absolutely marvellous! I loved it! This must be one of the best after-hospital-wing-scene I've ever read.
"... she wondered just when it was that Remus Lupin had become the colour in her life" this is a great phrase, and my favourite: "Dora, please. Don't walk away" [...] "You showed me how."
This is just marvellous. The exact dose of anger from Tonks' part, and of stubbornness of Remus'. I've always thought, though, that going to the werewolves had been Remus' own idea for coping with the guilt of Sirius' death. Oh well, it's just a different way of seeing it. Yours make me hate Dumbledore a little more, though.
I was going to read chapter 2 right away, but I think I'll wait for a tad in order to savour it better.

I was crying and smiling throughout – a job well done, very well-written and in-character.

I loved it!

Oh! I love Thonks and Lupin, and I love this story!
I like how you make words seems so beautiful
Keep writing .

I loved this. It's sweet and well written. It's a bit how i imagined Remus and Tonks finally getting together. :)

Oh my ! This is simply so beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. I loved the proposal, I think it fit both their characters perfectly, Remus traditional and romantic and Tonks - she just wants it over and done with :P And one more thing - THANK YOU for having Tonks a Hufflepuff. It really annoys me when people say that she was in Gryffindor - she's probably the truest of all Hufflepuffs in the books in my opinion. Talk about loyal, hardworking and patient. :P Anyway. This is awesome, please keep on doing good stuff.

Who doesn't love a proposal? ;) Not to mention one where the girl yells at her man afterwords. Haha! A great story, I enjoyed it very much. You are wonderful at showing us how the characters feel
| catwalkingowl 6/28/12 . chapter 2
Okay this is AWESOME! I love how Remus finally sees sense. Yes it's quite realistic. You are a great writer!

I loved his proposal and I loved that she interrupted him. That's is something she would do! I loved reading your story!

It's hard for me to express my love for this chapter in words but I'll do my best.
I loved the beginning, with Tonks having to try and keep her emotions under control (she failed a little bit there) I found that bit so sad, it made me want to cry. and the bit where she cut her hand was beautifully written, very romantic. I think the way you set this up was great, the dramatic irony of the audience knowing Remus was going to propose while reading Tonks' despair made it thoroughly enjoyable! ;) Though the sadness of the beginning made me begin to think you were lying about that happy ending!
Alas, I was not disappointed! As a side note, I LOVED the line 'For a Hufflepuff, was very impatient!' it made me giggle ;) The way you paced this was perfect, especially the build up of emotions to Tonks breaking down into Remus' arms *squeal*
I love what you did with the ending too. Perfect amounts of sap, but keeping them both in character which is often a rare quality in Lupin/Tonks stories. Tonks' sassiness while Lupin was trying to propose had me in stitches! That was great :D I also like how you emphasised how perfect the moment was as well and mentioning that wasn't necessarily true for their future. This made it seem just so much more real/believable which in itself, made the whole thing more romantic.
Basically, it was perfect. Exactly the ending I wanted and more. I could whitter on for hours about details in this story that I adored but I'll just say this is my favourite piece of writing of yours so far! You did such a great job with this story and I can't wait to see what you come up with next (no pressure) ! xxxxx
