Gioia’s Rec:
I’ve always loved Tonks and Remus, but it’s rare that I find fics that really depict them with all their strengths and weaknesses fairly.  Their relationships was certainly complicated, and looking at it through rose-colored lenses doesn’t do justice to either of the participants, as this fic shows.   We see in this fic a Tonks who loves just as fiercely as she fights.  She’s no doormat, but neither is she willing to let the love of her life walk away.  Reading this story, it’s easy to see why she was in Hufflepuff.  All her tenacity and strength of will are beautifully depicted here.  She isn’t weakened because of her marriage to a man of low self-esteem; she’s strengthened by it.  And when Tonks goes off to her death, we understand why. She isn’t just fighting to be with Remus, she’s fighting because it’s her right to stand up to the darkness. Fantastic story.
