oh my gosh, the Decemberists' newest album, The King Is Dead, is a MASTERPIECE OF MUSIC. i don't know what took me so long to download the rest.

anyway, this song from their album came on as i colored this particular drawing, and Clare can be witness to my sudden connection between the lyrics and this couple. i genuinely shouted out and tears came to my eyes.

Remus and Tonks (c) Rowling

Lupin looks very wolfish in this picture and I think Tonks' expression is perfect.  Great job!

Aw this is so cute yet sad, to be honest for a second I thought it was like Teddy dreaming his dad was there but then I worked it out and it was even better!

Beautiful artwork. Remus looks so tired and haggard and gentle. Tonks looks so sad and angry and stubborn.

What's that song called?  The link doesn't seem to work anymore.  Great drawing, although I'm somewhat confused about the premise of it.  Nice nonetheless.

Random thought, do you think that a Metamorphmagus might look how they would if the weren't able to change their appearance after a proper ravishing, if they felt loved enough to be that vulnerable?

This reminds me of when Tonks was all depressed after Sirius died. In the sixth book it said, "Remus has tired to cheer her up, but..."

So cute and sad at the same time...

I think I've already commented on this picture before but I felt the need to do so again. This is my absolute favourite picture of Lupin and Tonks. They just look so perfect compared to how I imagined them, especially Lupin. I love the subtle pointedness of his ears hinting at his lycanthropy and the way he's holding Tonks just looks so tender. It's lovely. ;u; :heart:

I can't stand how perfect Lupin looks here. I mean, not perfect in terms of beauty, because he was never meant to be 'hot' (altought you managed to make him beautiful <3), but perfect in a way that he looks exactly like I imagined him all my life.

Ah, this is wonderful. I always loved Tonks and Remus relationship, not only because they are two amazing characters, but because of all the difficulties they faced. Both external problems, with the prejudice against werewolves, and internal, like Remus deeply rooted, simply rotten self esteem. But they faced these problems and gradually learned how to deal with them, which in my opinion made their relationship even stronger. I just think this picture portrays their love with all it's issues so well. Bittersweet.

...and now I feel sad.
