    A Little More Time

    A Little More Time by Jess Pallas

    Summary: Was it possible to save two lives without altering history? Was it possible to give them a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so…. Novel Length, 120,029 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This, I suppose, technically classifies itself as AU, though to be fair there’s actually nothing in it that contradicts the canon of the books — that is, after all, rather the whole point. This is one of the only Remus-and-Tonks-didn’t-die fictions I’ve ever read, and it is by far my favorite. The characters are well realized and the plot is engaging — the young man Teddy Lupin has been especially lovingly crafted to inherit pieces of both his father and his mother. Remus and Tonk’s relationship has received the same kind of attention, and in a lot of places I forgot that it wasn’t JKR I was reading.

    Why You Might Not Care: NoblePrat!Remus ahoy! I love him and feel canon justifies him, but some people might not agree. And if NoblePrat!Remus bothers you, there’s a good chance NoblePrat!Teddy will too….

      Then I have you to thank for it, because I’m judging AU and just read it for the first time this weekend.

      Aghhh! :) I have just read the first chapter and IT IS SO GOOD!!! This is exactly what I needed. Finaly I might be able to get some closure. I’m actually excited, I can’t wait to read the rest but so far it is excellent.

      This is a great story… I read it first on ff.net, very happy to see it here… it’s the only good, realistic Remus-and-Tonks live that I’ve found.
