That, my dear Kasey, is why you're my NUMBER ONE FAN. *snugglepetpet* I hope that someday I shall be published.

The nice thing about JK is that she gives us these characters that are so... complex and yet not. I'd be lost to dig into Petunia, but I can tell you exactly how she'd react to little ol' Tonks.

I think it's impossible to see how broken Harry is through his own eyes, but as soon as you start to look at him through someone else's eyes, especially a character that is a little broken themselves, you see it. I just don't know yet all the ways that Tonks is broken.

*applauds* Well done!! That was great! Awesome post! *anticipates more*
I love to get responses from you because you're so specific about what you like. It helps. Feel free to offer concrit too if you have any. I'll be strong. I will.

I was actually not dissapointed when I realized it was a Tonks fic...I think it's sad that there are so little fics that include Tonks.
I love the depth and complexity JK gives some of her female characters. I'm not ready to delve into Ginny, but Tonks and McGonagall are my other two favorites. And Tonks has all this potential as she gets all these layers in HBP. Anyway... thank you. I like the title too, and I'm glad it drew you in. I'll be eagerly awaiting your comments in the future.

I have a tendency to overstate the obvious, and I had to step back and realize that line was just... enough. I wanted to go on and on, but in the end, I needed to trust you guys to know what I meant. And you did. And I'm glad you loved it, because I did too.

Aw... can you tell I"m writing with my book sitting open next to me? Hopefully it never gets as hard as that last one where I had to find a way around a hugely long, complex scene that I didn't want to rewrite verbatim. *snuggle*

THANKS to all of you. You've totally made my day.
