A place of refuge  
I know a lot of people in fandom are pretty upset about Remus/Tonks as a 'ship as well as the way the characters have been written. In DH they annoyed me enough that I had to make some anti-Tonks icons to cheer myself up. Enjoy!

I believe in SB/RL. I loved Tonks in OOTP. After OOTP I thought it would be funny/cute for a Remus Tonks... (yesyes I actually thought about it...) then came HBP.. still alright... (But I was thinking poor remmie needed Sirius back.. duh we all do) ... then came DH... omigasp, get rid of the abomination! But Teddy I like..

Well, poor wee Teddy can't help where he came from, can he? And I've managed to convince myself that he's not Remus's anyway. Tonks got knocked up by one of the bad guys (possibly Fenrir Greyback) while working under cover as an Auror. Remus married her to protect her. It's the only way I can make myself feel better about any of it.

Agreed, Remus/Tonks could have been much more likable. Their relationship could have actually been developed instead of 'oh, here's Tonks acting weird so you think she might be the one Draco's controlling, but no! Red herring, she's in love with Lupin, and they're gonna make a war orphan together and make Harry a godfather'

Their relationship served some of the themes and reaccuring ideas in Harry Potter pretty well, but it had nothing going for it on a character level. Both still seemed in character to me, at least Remus did, but I never got that he loved her the way she loved him.

Still dislike Bella though... she's just kinda boring. And it would have been nice to have Remus in the afterlife with Sirius without having Tonks hovering around there as well.

I love you. These icons just made my day! I'm sending them to all my friends and might snag a couple. Will credit!

Thanks! I felt a lot better after making them.
