Characters: Minerva McGonagall, Andromeda Black Tonks, original characters (Serena and Joy from "Raise Your Lantern High"), Teddy Lupin, briefly Hagrid, offscreen but alluded to often: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks

Words: 
12,900 / Chapters: 4

Notes:

Set a few years after “Raise Your Lantern High” (not a sequel, since that story is complete – more of a “bonus extra”!) but it also works as a standalone if you haven’t read that story.

“Raise Your Lantern High” followed Remus and Tonks throughout HBP; the two original characters in this story, Serena and her daughter Joy (also known by her werewolf name, River), are characters Remus got to know during his time living with a werewolf pack that year. I’ll include some more background at the bottom of chapter 1, if you’d like to know more, but again, I don’t think you’ll be confused if you just dive in!

(Note for those coming here from “Raise Your Lantern High”: the character was known as Joy in that story, because it was from Remus’ perspective and he thought in human names; here you’ll see her as River, because it’s from her own perspective. And yet I’ve used Serena’s human name here, because she’s among humans and thus using her human name …And yes, I do realise I made this complicated for myself when I created the construct of werewolf vs. human names!)

My great thanks to [personal profile] gilpin25 who provided such a thoughtful beta-read of this story. (And Brit-picking, too!) I appreciate it so much.

Read here, or on AO3.

Chapter One: A Visitor at Hogwarts )

starfishstar: (lantern)
RAISE YOUR LANTERN HIGH

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. (My Remus/Tonks epic, which has been years in the making! This is the second half of the story, set in the Half-Blood Prince year.)


Note: This is the final chapter of a story that has occupied much of my heart and my brain for nearly six years, and I can't quite believe this day has come! Like the great J. K. Rowling herself, I feel compelled to thank you, the reader, who have stuck with these characters until the very end.

Note: This was timing too good to be missed: This chapter takes place around and during Beltane, the Celtic celebration of spring. And out here in the real world, too, TODAY is Beltane. (Well, not in the UK anymore – but here in the US it's still May 1 for another hour or two.) Happy northern hemisphere/pagan/Celtic spring, everyone! I was out celebrating today, as part of a long-standing family tradition, despite the pouring rain.
