    Lost and Found

    Lost and Found by Thirty2Flavors

    Summary:They’re scared of us, he thought. They were scared of grief. Perhaps they thought it contagious.”  At Peter’s funeral, Remus finds comfort from the strangest of places. Oneshot, 3,082 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I secretly adore fics where Remus and Tonks interact when Tonks is a young girl — perhaps mostly because I get a little bit of a wicked grin thinking about how Remus must feel thinking back on times like this once he put a bun in her oven —  and, obviously, because I not-so-secretly adore fics by Thirty2Flavors.  I really love little Nymphadora here, and her spunky, innocent take on Remus’ situation.  There are some incredibly accurate remarks about funerals in general in this piece, and how people never know what to say to real grief.  Lighter than you think.  Uplifting, even.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you’ve read a lot of Thirty2Flavors’ fic, you’ll no doubt notice this is one of her older pieces, and in places the word play and language is not as cunningly created as we have come to expect of her later fics.  The story does not suffer from it, however, and the central theme is as solid as ever.

      I read this a couple weeks ago, but went and read it again anyway…her little Nympahdora couldn’t be cuter, and you’re right, it’d not nearly as heavy as you’d expect by where/when it’s set.
