Fic for violet451's Birthday

I wrote a drabble fic for violet451, ladytory's sister, for her birthday. It's Lupin/Tonks.



Andromeda Tonks was about as much as a black sheep as you can get. Sandwiched between two sisters – both cruel and cold, typical Blacks – she had developed a sort of rebellious nature, to say the least. Unlike most of her family, she posessed a fair mind, a sense of humour that did not involve hurting small animals, house-elves, or those of non-Magical blood, and an ability to look at others without the expression of having smelled something foul.

So why, Nymphadora Tonks wondered angrily, did she have to inherit the completely, utterly annoying and ridiculous penchant for stupid, mile long names?

She remembers being four, when all her friends would proudly display their colorful, loud scribbles, bearing their names in bold lettering. ANNE or ERICA or EMMA, LISA or ELLA or ROSE.

Tonks couldn't spell her name until she was six years old.

"Nymphadora, honestly !" she muttered, kicking petulantly at the covers.

A strong arm snuck around her, pulling her closer. "Not harping on about your name again, dear, are you?" A low whisper in her ear, throaty and rough with sleep.

She pouted. "No."

"Alright then. Go back to sleep, love."

"Fine."

A pause.

"But Remus. We are definitely naming the baby Mary."

I loved this! Fantastic job...and what a great present!
Thanks, :D
Awww! Awesome! I could feel Tonks' frustration (and honestly, who could blame her). You did a lot in few words - gave Andromeda's backstory and indicated that as "black sheep" as she was, there were some "rituals" she couldn't let go of, and the sheer ridiculousness of the name "Nymphadora." It's just ... no. And Remus! Awww! An R/T baby ... yay! I'd love to see this as a longer fic or maybe just another R/T story!

Thanks! I enjoyed writing this because Andromeda Tonks has always interested me, despite how little we've heard of her. I dunno, she's just one of those minor characters that I somehow got attached to for no real reason.

And yes, I agree. The name is quite... Well, there aren't really words.

Awww! An R/T baby ... yay! I'd love to see this as a longer fic or maybe just another R/T story!

Hmm, maybe. I dunno, I haven't got much inspiration for R/T. But maybe another few drabbles on them...
