Title: In Sickness
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mrstater
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for innuendo
Format & Word Count: one-shot, 7880 words
Summary: Tenth in the Transfigured Hearts series: Remus at last gives in to Tonks' request to help him after the full moon, but when she sees him at his lowest, it's more than Remus bargained for. Will he push her away for the last time, or does their relationship still have a chance?
Author's Notes: Yet another revision, which has been a very long time in coming! This story follows Recurring Problem and was one of the main ones that always bugged me a bit, probably because I wrote the whole series out of order; Remus' behavior always seemed to come rather out of the blue in this one, so I wrote an opening scene to hopefully give it some context. (The original is here for any parties interested in comparing versions.) Many thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] godricgal for enthusiastically betaing and helping me sort out the sticky issue of making a narrative shift from Tonks to Dora. (And encouraging me to get this project finished, lol.)

Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for abusive language and a post-torture situation
Summary: Remus and Tonks run from birthday parties and wedding receptions, but bigotry catches up with them. So do the side effects of pregnancy. (Sequel to Water Falls and Once)
Author's Note: An attempt at making sense of Remus' and Tonks' abrupt departure from Harry's birthday party at the Burrow, the aftermath of Bill and Fleur's crashed wedding, and Remus' meltdown at Grimmauld Place, this fic was originally written for the "Not Forgotten" ficathon at [livejournal.com profile] rt_challenge and was inspired by the prompts, I If you gave me nothing / Nothing more than this / I would have the / memory to keep / Let me make a simple wish / As we fall asleep / Let me wake with you by my side ("Always" by the October Project) , and a photo of a woman with flying pink hair. The excerpt at the beginning of the fic is from Deathly Hallows Chapter 7, and one line from Chapter 11. Concrit and feedback are welcome.

As always, thanks to my awesome beta-reader, [livejournal.com profile] godricgal.

Rating & Warnings: R for sex. Lots of sex.
Summary: Remus and Tonks have been a little careless. The consequences.
Author's Note: A sequel to Water Falls, this fic was written for the March 2008 "Not Forgotten" ficathon at [profile] rt_challenge , for the prompt: Sex contains all, / Bodies, Souls, meanings, proofs, purities, delicacies, results, promulgations, / Songs, commands, health, pride, the maternal mystery, the seminal milk; / All hopes, benefactions, bestowals, / All the passions, loves, beauties, delights of the earth, / All the governments, judges, gods, follow’d persons of the earth, / These are contain’d in sex, as parts of itself, and justifications of itself. ("A Woman Waits For Me" by Walt Whitman) The excerpt at the end of the fic is from Chapter 7 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Many thanks, as always, to [personal profile] godricgal .

Summary: Ninth in the Transfigured Hearts series: When prejudice, a communication breakdown, a separation, and the Daily Prophet frazzle nerves and make tempers flare, Remus and Tonks admit the B-word into their relationship vocabulary: break-up.

Title: Stepping Out
Author: [personal profile] mrstater 
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 for innuendo and language
Word Count: 12,470 words
Summary: It's Tonks' first time out with Remus in the Wizarding community, and in a killer pair of boots, she's dressed for the occasion. But when the Wizarding community doesn't react as planned, and more of Remus is revealed to her than ever before, will the balancing act be too much for her?
Author's Notes: A Tonks' POV outtake from the Transfigured Hearts series, this story takes place immediately following Adorare in the TH timeline. While the sequels to this series, Don't Look Back and Masks and Mirrors deviate considerably from post-Half-Blood Prince canon, I do want to incorporate elements from Deathly Hallows into my stories where I can, so from this point on in my TH outtakes and revisions, you might be seeing more of the issues Remus talks about in the infamous Chapter Eleven.

Dedicated to [personal profile] gilpin25 , who, on reading Adorare, wanted to know how Tonks' made out in the boots with the four-inch heels. I was going to do it for your birthday, but obviously missed that deadline, and I'm not sure if this is anything like you envisioned, but I hope you like it all the same. :) As always, a shout-out to my incomparable beta [personal profile] godricgal.

Title: Serpents
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mrstater
Rating & Warnings: R for sexuality
Prompts: weakness; "In the light of Voldemort's return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided."
Word Count: 66,000
Summary: Two years into a relationship with Remus, and the correct way to deal with full moons continues to elude Tonks, dredging up her insecurities and memories of painful past failures. Voldemort's attack on a fellow Order member puts everything into perspective for her...But will Remus see the light?
Author’s Notes: A leap into the future in the Caring For Magical Creatures, and eventually will be re-purposed to fit into that fic linear fashion. For now, it should stand alone even if you've not read that WIP, though the background might make more sense as it's a POA-era R/T romance. Other pertinent one-shots include You Should Know... and For the Fun Of It.

Written for the Last Chance Full Moon Showdown at [livejournal.com profile] metamorfic_moon, this fic won second runner-up in the Members' Choice category.

Rating: PG
Word Count: 13,900
Summary: Third in the Transfigured Hearts series: Time is a precious commodity for members of the Order of the Phoenix, especially where romance is concerned. Why, then, would Remus want to waste one of those rare opportunities to be with Tonks talking about the Ministry's unjust new Educational Decree that places an antagonist in his old Defence Against the Dark Arts position? But Tonks doesn't see it that way, and a second date seems far more likely to become a first fight.

Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Remus Lupin/Nymphadora Tonks
Summary: As Remus reacquaints himself with living among wizards, he feels himself softening to the persistent assertions of his friends that he is as entitled to that life as he always believed he was. The only problem is that the only life he wants is with Tonks, and she has, at last, heeded his insistence that they not see one another. When another full moon rises, he receives a sign from Tonks that speaks to a part of him no one, not even her, has yet reached. Will Remus, at last, see the light? Or will the darkest day the Order of the Phoenix has yet faced snuff it out?

Rating: PG-13
Pairing/Featured Characters: Remus Lupin/Nymphadora Tonks; Sirius Black, Mad-Eye Moody, Kingsley Shacklebolt
Summary: Knowing Sirius has little to occupy him in the miserable confines of Grimmauld Place, Remus tolerates his mate's nosy -- and downright inappropriate -- interest in his romance with Tonks. As a handful of Order members' gather to await word on Harry Potter's disappearance from Hogwarts, Sirius runs roughshod over propriety and privacy and forces Remus to come to terms with just how serious his relationship with Tonks has become. But with Harry's life in peril and the Order flung into the situation they've worked all year to evade, do Remus' realisations come too late?

Pairing: Remus Lupin/Nymphadora Tonks
Summary: Remus at last gives in to Tonks' request to help him after the full moon. When it comes to her actually seeing him at his lowest, surrounded by signs of the beast he transformed into the previous night, it's more than he bargained for. What he's least prepared for is that Tonks doesn't fault the monster beyond his control -- only the man within it. Has he pushed her away for the last time, or is there still a chance to win her back?
