Title: Unwrapped
Author: [ profile] mrstater
Rating & Warnings: R for sexuality
Prompts: presents and the quote: “We'll be changing the rules, a little bit. We are opening the presents now. Not later, now. Why? We're adults, and we can open our presents, whenever we want!” (The Ref)
Word Count: 2823 words
Summary: You know Remus wants you, but he doesn't realise you want him every bit as much... Tonks finds a way to get exactly what she wants for Christmas, but of course, it involves breaking the rules.
Author’s Notes: Written for the Pink Christmas Advent at [ profile] metamorfic_moon, for the prompts presents and “We'll be changing the rules, a little bit. We are opening the presents now. Not later, now. Why? We're adults, and we can open our presents, whenever we want!” (The Ref). This fic's a bit of a departure in style for me; I thought it would be fun to experiment with something completely different, so I hope you all like my use of the 2nd person POV and alternating narrators. Many thanks to [ profile] godricgal for her superb beta work.

Title: In Sickness
Author: [ 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 [ 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.)

Author's Note For [ profile] gilpin25, who's been battling a bad back and all manner of related frustrations, and who requested R/T and a crossword to cheer her up. Hope this is the ticket, m'dear! If not, I blame the Novocaine. ;)

Title: Between The Lines Part I/II
Authors: [ profile] gilpin25 and [ profile] mrstater
Rating & Warnings: T for mild innuendo
Word Count: 6966
Summary: Away on a solitary mission for the Order, Remus decides to send someone a ‘Wish you were here’ card. The consequences of which prove a lot more than both he and the recipient bargained for… Set during OotP.
Author's Note: We had so much fun writing our last joint endeavour, "Up All Night", together that we decided to team up again, this time for something completely different. Except that, frighteningly, we can never get too far away from animal droppings... There might just be a few surprises along the way -- not of the aforementioned variety. Let's just say, that where visual stimuli are concerned, this is not your average fanfic. And I count myself very lucky to have the opportunity to write again with such a brilliant writer as [ profile] gilpin25. Thanks for asking me again, m'dear. :)

Sirius makes it his personal Order mission to convince them to take it back...

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: Adorare
Author: [personal profile] mrstater 
Rating: PG
Word Count: 7873 words
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
Word Count
:  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.

Title: Serpents
Author: [ 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 [ profile] metamorfic_moon, this fic won second runner-up in the Members' Choice category.

Author: [ profile] mrstater
Rating: PG
Word Count: 7024
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.

Rating: PG

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.

Summary: At Easter, someone gives, someone else takes away, and Remus and Tonks are reminded of all they really need.
Author's Note: Written for [ profile] godricgal, who also stumped me in last week's Stump the Writer meme, as per her request for "Remus, Tonks, and Mad-Eye -- note the absence of /." Here you go, dearie. Pink-Eye Moony, sans slash. Sigh. It was difficult to do, but once I brought Molly in to chaperone, they behaved themselves. But only because it's Easter. ;) I hope it's a very hoppy holiday weekend for all you other Pink-Eye Moony shippers out there, as well.
