caladan_dd: Love in the world

Shades, Chapter Ten: A New Leaf, pt. 1

[petulant grumpy voice]I feel like writing Shades, so there.[/petulant grumpy voice]

Okay. Where were we? After Remus failed to check in following a transformation, Tonks and many other people worried, and ended up more or less dragging him to the Burrow, where he and Tonks had another of their little pep talks, full of his usual totally unmixed messages about their relationship. A confused Tonks wandered around until she finally landed at home, where she talked to her father and learned for the first time that Remus had once been a patient of his (he doesn't tell her this, per se). Ted tells her that maybe Remus needs to vanish for a little while, and what that she needs to hold onto isn't so much Remus--who Ted genuinely believes isn't really slipping away from her--as something in herself. She responds to this rather gnomic pronouncement with a bout of housecleaning at the Shrieking Shack.
