Shades, Chapter Five: Relocation, pt. 2

Okay, before I got distracted by the first day of school, I was working on this story, wasn't I?

Tonks has come to Dumbledore's office, as he wanted to discuss a change in assignment with her--he would like her to take Robards' offer to relocate to Hogsmeade as part of the Auror team watching the school, because he'd like a member of the Order involved in it. He's called her there at the same time Remus comes to give his report, because he wants to arrange to use the Shrieking Shack as an entrance if it's needed in emergencies. Remus refuses to give his report on Fenrir's people around Tonks--he's worried about the fact that Greyback already thinks he's passing her information--and she is sent out of the office while he speaks. She's less than thrilled about this.

Apparition--wandless? I think so.

Okay--I had never even considered the idea that Apparition required a wand, so in Shades, I have Remus surrender his wand to Tonks while he is away with the other werewolves, and Apparate back and forth to the Burrow. Needless to say, I was a bit confused when two different people took me to task for having Remus Apparate without a wand!

So, I'm going through, looking at the descriptions of Apparition in the books, mostly in HBP, since that's where it's described most often and in the most detailed way, and I'm just not seeing any wand requirement. (Page numbers, U.S. edition.)
