Break...
No words seem to be tumbling out of my fingertips at the moment. I think I'll take tonight off from Shifts. Sorry! No writer's block or anything; I know where I'm going. I'm just not getting there.

Thank you for the heads-up. And thank you again for sharing this with us. :-)

Aw! Don't worry. We all would rather have you take a bit of time off than get all blocked up and stressed out.

Just wanted to say that your R/T is so amazing- I don't think I've seen the whole Remus'-dilemma in any other fics out there.

Oh, it won't be a long break. I'll be back at it tonight. :)

Thanks! I think that the dilemma of the age difference is part of what makes the ship interesting--it's not a great, dramatic challenge that true love alone will overcome; it's just a mundane, everyday sort of problem that will recur pretty regularly. And it also highlights the fact that Remus's generation has more or less left him behind, either through loss of them (James, Lily, Sirius, Peter) or just by going forward while he was sort of stuck in neutral (Ted and Andromeda, probably others).

Now that I think about it, Ted and Andromeda do seem older than Remus- and I know they are older, I mean... oh, well, what you said.

I think the saddest scene was where Tonks brought the singers over to Grimmauld Place and Sirius watched Andromeda out the window. (Don't know where that come from. I think from thinking about Andromeda.)

You deserve the break! However, if you get ideas be sure to jot a brief note of it somewhere, before it's gone - I know from experience. But it's always good to take a break, otherwise you may get what I call "writer depression." I got it last year... it's horrible, and a little scary, I just stopped wanting to write my fic, I didn't care or anything. It went on for about two months, and then I forced myself to keep writing - it's easy to cure, but when you're there... :(
