Summary:  Eighth in the Transfigured Hearts series:  An accident shows Remus that he isn't the only member of his romantic relationship with insecurity and self-doubt. What can he say to bolster Tonks' confidence, even as his own is shaken by this startling revelation?
Author's Notes: At one point while revising this story, I was cutting out so much that I thought it might end up shorter than the original (which you can read here). Famous last words... Many thanks to [personal profile] godricgal  for her mad beta skills and helping me stay away from inadvertently disturbing images like Kreacher "streaking" down the stairs.

Title:  A Tonks By Any Other Name
Author:  [personal profile] mrstater
Rating:  PG
Word Count:  6336 words
Summary:  Seventh in the Transfigured Hearts series:  A rose by another other name would smell as sweet, and Remus thinks "Nymphadora" would fit Tonks perfectly if only she would let people use her given name. Why does she loathe it?  A fifteen-minute intermission at the theatre provides the perfect opportunity for Remus ask, and Tonks' answer reveals surprising facets of her personality.
Author's Notes:   I think I might stop calling these "revisions" and switch to something a little more accurately descriptive like "extensive re-writes which may quadruple some stories in length."  This was one of the first R/T fics I ever wrote, and one of the series where my idea of Remus eventually became nothing like how I depicted him in the original version.  There were a couple of things I added because it seemed like a good place to set up a few teensy things in Masks and Mirrors, and overall I wanted it to feel like a true interlude in the series, following on the heels of a few themes and leading up to the fics to come, rather than simply a fluffy one-shot.  I think I'm pleased with the result.  I hope y'all like the new version, too.  As always, I cannot thank [personal profile] godricgal enough for her beta work.

Title: Crying Over Spilt Tea

: PG

:  5996 words
: Sixth in the Transfigured Hearts series:  Snape witnesses the attraction between Remus and Tonks, and when she is the object of the Potions master's scorn, the old hostilities between the Marauders and Snivellus rear their ugly heads. The feisty Auror is hardly the average damsel in distress, and more than capable of standing up for herself, but Remus can't sit back and say nothing. Will he intervene for her like a level-headed Order member, or will he join Sirius in reverting to the roles of Moony and Padfoot?
Author's Notes
: Another revision which is just about unrecognizable from the original, which can be found here. Not only have I beefed up the content, but I've also pulled it forward in the series because I've always been shaky about the order of the three following Open Door and felt they weren't ready yet for another quarrel. Also, I drew in a plot-line from a Sirius-POV piece I wrote for the January, 2007 ficathon at [profile] rt_challengeThe Devil On Your Shoulder.  As always, many thanks to [personal profile] godricgal, AKA Tater's Best Beta Reader.

Summary: Fifth in the Transfigured Hearts series: The night before the full moon, Remus feels ill and out of sorts, and would prefer to shut himself up in Grimmauld Place. When Tonks opens her door to him, it's an invitation Remus can't bring himself to refuse -- but he goes to her flat with his own walls erected around him. Will his resistance to her creative attempts to draw him out reveal the inner wolf to her? Will she at last shut the door on their relationship?

Rating: PG

Summary: Fourth in the Transfigured Hearts series: When the party for the new generation of Hogwarts prefects inspires Remus and Tonks to take a walk down memory lane, Remus discovers that at thirty-five he's not changed much from the fifteen-year-old who cared more about being a loyal friend than a responsible prefect. He fears Tonks will see him differently, but she seems to think he possesses other necessary qualities... Will they compensate for what he lacks? And what do the other Order members think?
Author's Note: Another revised installment; the original version can be found here. I cannot thank [ profile] godricgal enough for her beta work. Sometimes I think she knows the series progression far better than I do, and I’m extremely grateful to have her along for the ride on this revision process.

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
Pairing/Featured Characters: Remus Lupin/Nymphadora Tonks; Albus Dumbledore
Summary: The hectic Christmas which, for the Order, was anything but a holiday, leaves Remus with little time and fewer resources to celebrate Tonks' birthday. Still, he wants to throw her the party she deserves, and for a seasoned Marauder like him, he sees their joint assignment to escort Harry and the Weasley children back to Hogwarts provides the perfect opportunity to pull off a belated surprise. But can even a Marauder keep one step ahead of a bright Auror like Tonks? And is his creativity really enough for such an extraordinary witch?

Summary: Last night Remus and Tonks were all but engaged to be married. Then the Death Eaters attacked the Brockdale Bridge, murdered Amelia Bones, the Order found Emmeline Vance dead in her home, and Albus Dumbledore asked Remus to wake up from his dream and enter a nightmare.

Rating: PG
Pairing/Featured Characters: Remus Lupin/Nymphadora Tonks; Sirius Black, Severus Snape
Summary: The relentless cycle of the moon and a bad batch of Wolfsbane Potion are enough to put Remus in a foul mood. His approaching thirty-seventh birthday, on top of it all, makes him positively broody -- so much so that his failure to join Sirius in another verbal duel with Snape turns into an even uglier conflict between best mates. Can Tonks intervene without making Remus feel even more deficient? Will his request for her to let his birthday pass quietly, without fuss, backfire and muck up that relationship, as well? More importantly what, exactly, does Remus over hear Tonks whispering about with Snape?

Title: Caught
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Rating: PG
Word Count: 5300+ words
Summary: First in the Transfigured Hearts series: As Remus Lupin struggles to hide his own feelings and stop making assumptions about a certain female Order colleague's, a new question arises: are Aurors skilled at catching other things than dark wizards?
Author's Notes: If this title seems familiar to some of you, that's because it is. This was my second Remus/Tonks fic I wrote, and now, one year and an almost embarrassing number of stories later, I see the characters a bit differently than I did then. I put a great deal of time and effort into the Transfigured Hearts series, of which this eventually became a part, and when this meme prompted a couple of questions about what I'd imagined leading up to this moment in time, I decided, why not re-write Caught and see if I can't include more background information as well as tweak the characterization to match the latter half of the series better? I'd love to know what you think about this fairly drastically reworked version. (The original can be found here.) I do plan to do revisions on the first half to two-thirds of the series. Also, keep your eyes peeled for Masks and Mirrors, a multi-chaptered sequel to the Transfigured Hearts series coming soon (maybe Friday?) to an F-list near you!
