    Letters from the Exile

    Letters from the Exile by MsSpell

    Summary: The correspondence surreptitiously exchanged between Tonks and Lupin with the help of the Order members, during the year he worked as a spy among the werewolves. Oneshot, 3,017 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I hate Remus/Tonks. For no real reason. But I love this fic. It’s perfect; romantic, honest and fresh. The characterisation is startlingly good: none of the letters in this epistolary fic are signed, and yet there is no difficulty in distiguishing character — both Remus and Tonks have such strong styles and characters. Remus’ cutting nature makes this a little sad, while Tonks’ bluntness makes it a little bit funny and, frankly, it feels like how Remus/Tonks may have actually happened, as opposed to the disjointedness that is canon. The awkward end scene is suitably cute and then entire sense is far less forced than canon. A rare gem.

    Why You Might Not Care: Sometimes Tonks is irritating. Like, very. And this fic feels a litte rambling in places. But nothing so bad as to deter one from reading.

      The Remus/Tonks interaction here is perfect. The teasing is extremely well done, and you can hear the characters’ voices-Tonks is Tonks and Remus is definitely Remus. Well done!
