Day 17: A pairing you never thought would work, but did.
Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks. I did not expect this one. In fact, I kind of cringed when it started in HBP. It came out of nowhere and the characters aren’t main so there wasn’t much time for development. It’s one of those pairings that’s greatness is largely due to what we don’t see.
Tonks was young and fun-loving. Remus was older and sad. I can imagine how a relationship like that would start. I could imagine how she would make him laugh. We saw how she would accept and love him even with his scars and his curse. We saw how he finally had family and happiness after years of loneliness. Then, it ended. It was after their story was over that I loved them.
To me, Remus/Tonks was like seeing a flash of light out of the corner of your eye. You didn’t have a clear view but you can guess that it was brilliant.
