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 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.

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

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.

Summary
: 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.

Transfigured Hearts #11: Marauding
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? [OotP: PG, romantic comedy] - To Be Revised
Alternate Links: FanFiction.Net


Transfigured Hearts #12: Valentine, Done Well
With Tonks, Remus so frequently feels like a boy that he seldom thinks about the rather substantial difference between their ages. A double-date with Bill Weasley and fresh-out-of-school Fleur Delacour, however, makes it impossible for Remus to think of anything but the generation gap. Not only that, but Fleur's backhanded compliments and self-centred domination of the conversation bring out Tonks' insecurities, and Remus is too mired in self-doubt to bolster her. Just as the night seems destined to be named Worst Valentine's Date Ever, he receives encouragement from the most unexpected of people. [OotP: PG, Valentine's Day romantic comedy] - To Be Revised
Alternate Links: FanFiction.Net

Transfigured Hearts #13: Good A-brewing
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? [OotP: PG, romance] - To Be Revised

Transfigured Hearts #14: Interview With a Skeeter
A shopping excursion in Diagon Alley turns into an exercise in stealthy evasion when Rita Skeeter threatens to make the relationship between a Metamorphmagus and werewolf the subject of a tabloid. Along the way, Remus and Tonks are forced to have a long overdue talk about a particular aspect of their relationship, which makes Remus blush like a schoolboy.

Alternate Links: FanFiction.Net

Transfigured Hearts #15: Parting Gifts
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? [OotP: PG-13, drama] To Be Revised
Alternate Links: FanFiction.Net

Transfigured Hearts #16: Meet the Parents
Remus has never thought of himself as the sort of man a witch would bring home to her parents. Meeting Ted and Andromeda Tonks for the first time in St. Mungo's Hospital is a harrowing prospect, but for once in his life, approval is not the foremost concern on his mind as woman he loves lies unconscious, caught in the clutches of a powerful hex. The only thing that matters to him is to stay by her side, and to be the first one to meet those dark eyes when she awakens. Unfortunately, life has not historically respected Remus' wishes -- as Sirius' death cruelly reminds him. This time, will it be Tonks' parents who stand in his way of his plans?

Transfigured Hearts #17: The Age-Old Question
The death of Sirius and the question of what will become of Headquarters send the Order of the Phoenix into a tailspin of grief and uncertainty. For Remus, one thing is certain amid the chaos: he loves Nymphadora Tonks, and more than anything, he wants to tell her. But with her still recovering from the serious injuries she sustained at the Department of Mysteries, and in the face of growing darkness, is now the best time to make his feelings known? For himself, he has everything to gain, but for her, can that exceed how much there is to lose? [OotP: PG, romance] To Be Revised

Transfigured Hearts #18: Time To Weep, Time To Laugh
As Remus and Tonks prepare to attend Sirius' memorial at the Burrow, they take their time to mourn in private. In comforting one another, they find they have much to celebrate, and that love and life are the ultimate tribute to the fallen. [OotP: PG-13, 6673 words, angst]

Transfigured Hearts #22: Hunger
A month into his underground mission, Remus re-emerges for a brief respite at the Burrow.

Transfigured Hearts #23: And This Shall Be a Sign
Christmas brings Remus once more to the Burrow, where Tonks is, again, notably absent. Nonetheless, everything at the Burrow makes him think of her, dream of her -- especially when Molly and Fleur see fit at every turn to remind him of why she isn't there.

Transfigured Hearts #27: Through a Glass Darkly
In the safe confines of Grimmauld Place, with the taming Wolfsbane Potion, Remus' impending first transformation back in the Wizarding world holds out a glimmer of hope that his humanity is not lost.

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.

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!
