Hundred Ways Remus Broke Up With Tonks

Hello. This is my first post. I'm so glad we have this community since I have nothing against Tonk or Remus, I just don't like them together. So I come bearing a fic sort of thing as a gift. :)

This was x-posted at remusxsirius a week or so ago.


Summary: Short humorous drabble on the boys discussing Tonks. (Kinda
AU I guess. Read A/N for more info)

Pairing: Remus / Sirius
Disclaimer: I don't own the characters, I wish I did, then I could
make all kinds of money and bend them to my will. *Cackles*

Spoilers: HBP and OTP

Rating: PG for language

Author's Notes: This requires a bit of explanation. I started these
as a sort of fun way to get over my writers block and am going to
incorporate them in my fic that's still a WIP. This one I did to get
out my frustration about Tonks. It's a bit harsh on JKR, but meh;
she's been a bit harsh on them, so it's fair play.
This is unbetaed and very short. Enjoy and don't take it too
seriously.

Feedback: Yes please. destyne76@...

Intermission

Giving Fan Fiction readers (and the characters) something to do while
waiting for the next chapters.

Today's topic: Discussions about Tonks in HBP
Characters: Remus and Sirius

Setting: Two leather chairs with a maple coffee table in the middle.
Each character has their own coffee mug; contents in the mug vary.


Sirius: She decided to pair you off with Tonks?

Remus: I know I found it strange too. What with all the
references in canon about our relationship. The joint Christmas
presents, living with me in Grimmuald Place. All the fucking we
did. Oh, I guess that wasn't really in canon.

Sirius: Well it should have been.

Remus: Sirius, its a children's book.

Sirius: They've got to learn about it from somewhere don't
they?

Remus: (Giving Sirius a sideways glance.) I guess she could
have done worse.

Sirius: How so?

Remus: She could have paired me up with Hermione.

Sirius: Yes that would have been worse. Not only making you
straight, but a pervy child molester.

Remus: (tapping his fingers on the arm of the chair) And can
you believe Harry thought Tonks was pining for you. I mean, she's
your cousin.

Sirius: First cousin once removed

Remus: Oh, sorry. (Rolls eyes) I know incest is something
purebloods practice, but I didn't think Harry would draw to that
conclusion.

Sirius: I used to change Tonks' nappies. Andromeda would
have a fit if I fell for her daughter.

Remus: Well, maybe I'll die in the 7th book, then I won't
have to live in infamy as a straight character.

Sirius: You could fall through the veil and join me. It's
rather dull in a world that nobody knows anything about and is only
referred to in fanfiction. Bloody hell, I didn't even get a
funeral. It's like Jo completely forgot about me after disposing of
me behind a mysterious archway.

Remus: Could be worse. Could be a straight man pairing up
with your lover's cousin whose 10 years younger then you.

Sirius: Yes that would be worse. Maybe we should jump ship
from this series and join another one where our romance will be
embraced.

Remus: Then we'd have to leave Harry.

Sirius: Oh that's right. Well, perhaps we'll just hold out
for good slash fanfiction then.

Hope you like. :)

This is something that is really starting to irk me...

> I know incest is something purebloods practice, but I didn't think Harry would draw to that conclusion.

He wouldn't come to the conclusion of 'incest', because in the UK it isn't seen as such between cousins.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend. I had no idea it was that way in the UK. I guess I learn something every day. Again, sorry, I didn't mean to irk ya.

Sorry if I came across as a bit arsey.

And I did find your ficlet an amusing concise dig at canon, btw - especially the harsh bits!
Good luck with the WIP :-)

missed this one when you posted it at remusxsirius I think.

This made me happy indeed. I am a lover of book five Tonks - not wtfemo book six Tonks. While I maintain that R/T does not rule out R/S - I still find it offputting.
Remus falling through the veil - that would be so sadly and sweetly romantic - if a bit redundant.

yeah and the cousin thing is iffy - doesn't nessisarilly lead to birth defects - infact it's highly unlikely unless cousin marriage is repeated within a family. But if it happens once it's fine. Still, I think of my cousins and yeah - don't think I could ever think of them that way.
