Long ago written originally in themetamorfic_moon
Beatles and the Bard Timeless Moon Ball, (them mods should totally get an award for the longest challenge titles EVA! yes?), this fic was written with the express purpose to be canon, leaving room for why Remus leaves Tonks again in DH even though he was seemingly convinced at the end of HBP. I thought it was difficult the first time ‘round, but that was nothing compared to the revisions, which will mostly be noticeable to anyone interested only at the end as I made a lot of minor changes, as well. And while I’d say that this still doesn’t quite hit the difficulty of my hardest ever written, I’d say it’s a very close second!
I’d like to thank again everyone who reviewed the original version
of this over at Meta. Y’all have no idea how helpful you really were when the time came to actually put into words
