Who else thinks that Remus and Dora were a bit... wow, rushed?
I mean, we find out in the first chapter that they're married, and I just fall off my chair and go "What, really?". Then, we find out a month or less later that Tonks is pregnant, which shocked me even more! And then we hear nothing of them until the Spring, when it's suddenly announced that she's had the baby! Does anyone else agree with me that it was (although very very very brilliantly amazingly) rushed?
I felt the same as well.. I was surprised when I knew that they had married..Fleur and Bill deiced to marry a year before..I was expecting they will going together but not marry that fast and She became pregnant too ..May be that was good at the end cause they will die so they lived happily with each other before they kick the box

Oh no, I don't mean their relationship progressing - it's just, they'd only just got together a month before, then we find out they are married. I mean like, everything happens in a year. It could just be because I analyse the characters so much, I didn't expect them to get going so quickly. Still, I'm glad they did - otherwise, they might have died before getting married and ickle Teddy-kins being born. But y'all are right, people do get together quickly in the time of war. And when you think about it, it wasn't all happening in the space of like, three months. A year, more like (Teddy was born in April or May). Their deaths were more rushed, and I wanted to have a bit more description. They weren't even meant to die, JK said herself!

I actually interpreted Tonks's speech at the end of Book 6 as they had professed that they liked one-another, had begun a relationship, and then Lupin had ended it, and this was Tonks saying, "Why did we have to break up?"

So not that they began a relationship at the end of Book 6, but that Lupin decided to carry it on.

Firstly because Teddy would be old enough to take care of himself by the Epilogue but also his grandmother was still alive. As next of kin, she would be his guardian, not Harry.

I don't think it was rushed at all; the whole Lupin/Tonks ship was evident previously, so we had (at least, I had) an expectation for them to get married. And it's not uncommon for people to have a baby right after they get married, though many people wait a few years.

Well, we know he was a metamorphmagus like his mother because shortly after he was born Lupin mentioned his hair already changing color like hers...lol I remember reading that, but i don't know about the Werewolf part...hmmmm.

I was sorely dissapointed when I read they died...I cryed so hard, I had to physically put the book down. I think it made me angry too. It hurt my feelings. Really.

I do love they got married though, shame I didn't get to read the wedding but its wartime so it was only expected to be rushed and Lupin has always been a bit of a loner, he wouldn't have wanted a big to do kinda thing, and Tonks just being so happy that they were finally getting married honestly wouldn't have cared how they did it, she'd have just been the proud wife finally and been happy with that I am sure.

So that didn't dissapoint me, and finding out they were having a baby was just pure joy. I loved how harry made Remus go home to his wife for her and the baby....that was "bloody brilliant" as Ron would say!


I'm jut sad they didn't get to see their son grow up and become the man he is.
To me that just seems so unfair....
Alright well I've said my peace and I hope I didn't bore anyone, but I had been wanting to get that off my chest.

I felt that Tonks and Lupin were great together by the end of the 6th book. They were holding hands and such, and then we learn that they had a quiet marrige!?

I was a bit upset cause we didn't get the whole story, and then she's pregnant?! Way to fast for me, but I like them together.

Then they die.

It just feels a little messed up.

I think it seemed kind of rushed. In one book, they got married, had a baby, and died. I think that even though their relationship started at the end of book six, they needed more time. The end of book six was only a month or two before the beginning of book seven

maybe it was shocking...but i'm not that sure about "rushed". i think they were made for each other and if they thought that way also then what's the problem??
i did predict their death though right after they made harry teddy's godfather. it's almost as if picking a godfather "just in case" is a jinx! it took me a while to realize that they were actually dead and it shocked me even more to see his ghost. i'm not really sure what i was thinking...

I think that Lupin's excitement was kind of meant to signify that his son hadn't been born wolf-like.

Well, in a sense it had to be rushed because we had to realize that they had an undying love for eachother so when they died we felt more emotions from that scene.

I did find it a bit of a shock in Book6. But then again JK Rowling doesn't really focus on them, so I could believe that there have been something between them for some time, it just doesn't come up so much in the book.

well I think that they already had a relationship in book 6 even before the end, but Lupin was just worried about it and broke it off, so maybe the baby was rushed but marriage-no

I always thought that they weren't together in the sixth book until the very end. Tonks was pining for Lupin through all of it, perhaps from the very end of the fifth book but we don't know for sure and Lupin obviously felt for her but because he is such a loner and didn't want to risk her life because of his unpredictable state, he made them stay away from each other.

The way I see it, the entire true relationship spanned roughly a year, from start of the relationship to the end. That is fast in any terms but like multiple people have said, in a time of war people are more apt to act on a whim because they don't know what tomorrow is going to bring.

We also don't see any of the progression because Harry isn't around to see it. We only see what he sees and if he's off in the woods, he's not keeping up on what's going on at home. Lupin going to him and wanting to leave Tonks and the baby, I thought, was very unLupinish. Yes, it was human but it wasn't Lupin and it angered me. I think I would have prefered if one of them lived, perferably Lupin, to take care of the baby instead of just killing them off. Their deaths were very anti climatic and unsatisfying. Like I've said before, I think the ending should have been dedicated to the aftermath of the war instead of skipping ahead to the blatantly obvious and sugary sweet.

Remus and Tonk's marriage was rushed and unexpected and the fact they had a baby was even more of a rush. I really did not expect Remus to marry Tonks as he did not think he was able to provide for a wife etc. But I think it was a one sided relationship in that only Tonks was in love with Remus and Remus did not really love Tonks. Their death was even more of unexpected and JKR did not really go into how they died.

Being an auror, I don't think Tonks would need providing for. She's her own woman.

I think Remus was more concerned about his wolfish tendencies than his monetary value. He was afraid to love anyone because of what he was because that meant being close to someone. Being close to someone like that also exposed them to great risk, not just of being killed but being turned as well. I don't think he could live with himself if he infected another person with his disease, that being one of the reasons why he was so distraught over Tonks's pregnancy. It's not an excuse for his actions but I can see why he did what he did.

I hold out hope that Jo writes a HP encyclopedia and explains all in there.
i got this from an online chat ( MuggleNet | The ULTIMATE Harry Potter Site - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, JK Rowling, rumors, news, forums, images, video, and more! )

Casey Kunze: Who killed remus and tonks I think if I knew this, I would get some closure over the very sad, but understandable, death of two of my favorite characters

J.K. Rowling: I’m so sorry! I met a couple on launch night who had come dressed as Lupin and Tonks, and I felt dreadfully guilty as I signed their books!

J.K. Rowling: Remus was killed by Dolohov and Tonks by Bellatrix.

I'm just looking forwards to the Encyclopeadia. And Tonks and Lupin dying REALLY made me angry. I couldn't believe they got such a small mention. It's like saying "They got married had a baby and died". I don't mean that's how their relationship was, but that was an example of how rushed their death was. Wasn't it "Hermione and Ginny moved out the way, so that Harry could see the bodies next to Fred. Lupin and Tonks, calm and peaceful looking, apparently asleep under the enchanted ceiling". Very tragic and romantic - but not enough description. I hope we hear more in the encyclopaedia.

I know....*Does some mental ressurection and AKing*. I asked loads of questions about their deaths in the webchat, because I have been in TOTAL denial. I wanted Bellatrix to kill them both together....well, I didn't really want them to die at all, but y'know what I mean...

To be absolutly honest...

i really dont think they relationship had been rushed. I mean it started out in the 6th book at what...the beginning of the year. Then in the 7th book, meaning another year, they are married. That is about accurate. Then her being pregeant is totally reality in my case and having a baby 9 months later...WOW...i think this who relationship was pretty accurate and one track.

But one thing that i could say was rushed was how much they spent with their baby boy Teddy. I would have to say that they didn't spend enought time for them, and for them to get killed in action...is really sad. That is the only part that went by in a rush for me between Tonks and Lupin.
