AIN'T MISBEHAVIN'

Summary: It wouldn't be the Auror Christmas party without a mystery to solve, a spot of mischief, and a very well-earned slow dance.

Characters: Tonks, Remus, briefly Sirius; various minor characters

Words: ca. 7,000 total; this chapter 1,900 words

Notes: My main fic from this winter's [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove event!

     By the nature of their canonical relationship (compressed timeline, inherent tragedy, so much personal struggle and interpersonal angst!) I feel like when I write Remus/Tonks so much of it ends up being intensely emotion-focused. Even when it's positive emotions and fluffy moments, it feels like I'm fighting to give them as much happiness as possible before their inevitable end! So with this one I wanted a different focus, wanted to give them something fun to do, a bit of an adventure – showcase Tonks and Remus doing cool stuff as the interesting characters they are, not just having relationship angst. I don't know whether I've succeeded, but that was the intention. :-)
     I've borrowed one small but crucial detail from the great Dorothy L. Sayers. I'd like to hope she wouldn't mind!

     Written for the following plethora of prompts:
#11, 'I would always rather be happy than dignified.' —Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
#9, The Auror Christmas Party
#15, [picture of a really snazzy red dress, here]
#14, 'My Head of House said I lacked certain necessary qualities...like the ability to behave myself.' ―J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
plus a bit of #7, Sirius' Christmas

SCENTS OF SORROW, SCENTS OF JOY

Summary: Crookshanks disliked the loud, ginger-haired one from the first.

Characters: Crookshanks, Hermione, Ron and others

Words: ~1,100

Notes: Something short I dashed off today, while the idea was in my head – [livejournal.com profile] stereolightning (“The Cat in the Night”) and [livejournal.com profile] gilpin25 (“Found in Translation”) inspired me, and I thought I’d try my hand at Crookshanks fic!

BE THE LIGHT IN MY LANTERN

Summary: In which Remus and Tonks fight battles, arrest criminals, befriend werewolves, overcome inner demons and, despite it all, find themselves a happy ending. A love story, and a story of the Order years. (At long last, my Remus/Tonks epic, which has been years in the making!)

Notes: Yes, the day has come: This is the final chapter of Part One! More notes about the upcoming Part Two are in the end note.

Notes: Here's the next-to-last chapter of Part 1! I'll post the final chapter of Part 1 post in about two weeks, and at that point I'll let you know how it's looking in terms of when I'll be able to start posting Part 2 (which covers the HBP year).

And it hurts even to have to say it, but: Warning for major character death in this chapter. (But if you've read OotP, obviously that's not exactly a surprise.)

Note: Okay, so here's my posting plan for the next weeks – because things are about to get (even more) hectic for me, I'm going to switch to posting chapters every two weeks. So I won't post a chapter next Friday, but I will post on or around Friday two weeks from now. And on or around Friday two weeks after that. And then that's it for Part 1! (Part 2 will follow...) Oh, and as always, this story is simultaneously updating at AO3 and FF.

Notes: Yes, I've changed the title of the story – to "Be the Light in My Lantern" from the old working title "The Beginning of Something." The new title is from a song by Josh Ritter, "Lantern." Josh is one of my all-time favorite songwriters, and this is a song of his that I also sometimes play/perform; it's an anthem of hope and love even in dark times.
