A very well characterised and well written story. Nice work! :)

God, another really sad story from you. Do you know how to write happiness? Haha. Well, I guess both of these stories have a sparkle, a glimmer, I suppose, of happiness in them, though it's awfully hard to find, and with a bit more thought, I can conclude that the way a person loves someone else can be happy in its own way, like the way Tonks loves Remus, here, and he her, though he doesn't have to say it. (And him not having to say it, well, that's rather happy too, sort of.)
A lot of things were great about this story. The way she stops having little accidents (how she sloshes soup on the countertop to make herself feel better), and especially this line, which was possibly the most tragic:
[but she can't make him laugh her even talk much]
Especially that first part, because I would imagine that making people laugh is something that Tonks really loves, and having lost that, well...what else can she do? She can listen, but listening to the silence is not very helpful, probably doesn't make her feel helpful, even if her presence and her simply being there makes Remus feel better, more grounded, secure.
And again with the holding. Thank you for that. People underestimate how emotional and beautiful and FEELING a hug can be, so when Remus kisses her and JUST HOLDS HER, it's ten times more powerful and means ten times as much than if he'd just let himself sleep with her or something. There's something much more longing in an embrace, I think.
Again, a very lovely story, and I am very glad I read it. Thank you.

This is so beautiful and painful and quiet and real. Wonderfully done.

of all the stories i've read in fanfiction about this particular couple pairing, i have to say this has got to be the nicest way Remus has left Tonks for his mission. Almost every other story i've read has resulted in Remus being completely selfish and leaving in a huff and a puff, and undoubtedly, Tonks being sad and miserable.
so, i got to say, well done! this is how it should have been when Remus embarked on his mission. :)

(Hint: watch for typos!)
I just read the Harry Potter books last week, and I greatly enjoyed them.

That was sad and cute... by the way, have you been watching Star Wars?

I loved it! It almost made me want to cry, which is a feat in itself. I just love your portrayal of them...its an understated romance, and you captured that. They're in character, which is bliss. The disconnected, third person POV actually worked really well.
“I would stay. And you could burn toast for me.” I loved that line...it was so sweet, and in character...I think I might just HAVE to add this to my favorites! Aw, I just really love this piece...thanks for writing it :)

Muse food: This is a very well written story. I like how you portray Tonks as more understanding, and less bratty. Even if this was ment as a one-shot, please continue it!

Great angsty fic. Keep up the good work.
| LadyMoriel chapter 1 . 2/12/2006
Honestly, I don't know whether to squee fangirlishly or cry. This is so sweet, and sad, and perfect...your descriptions of Remus in particular are heartbreakingly accurate (though that's hardly the right word to describe it). It's just...gosh, I suck at reviews lately. I adore this story. Your opening line and ending line are perfect, and so is everything in between (aside from a couple typos, anyway).
Drat you. You're making me want to glomp Remus all over again. *kills inner fangirl*

Wow. The careful, yet rambling-in-an-odd-not-rambling way you formed the entire piece is just perfect. I love it. It creates a mood and a feel for the whole situation and all that you just can't get with normal use of words. I loved the tone throughout, and the different conflicts that didn't scream conflict and attention. It's absolutely perfect. There are some phrases, too, that stick with you for a while after you read them, until you come to next and the next that just string together so beautifully. The way you characterized the two in this style was also lovely to read. And Remus' line of 'I would stay. And you could burn toast for me.' is just perfect Remus. The little idiosyncrasies of them both were tucked in really well.
Pleasure to read.
