You are a true mental health professional, dispensing laughter, which has no adverse side affects, in lieu of anti-depressants.|
Author's Response: You're very welcome :) I confess I could've used the latter in the last few months!

|I agree with Owlbait, I should have included I Was a Male War Bride. Just picture Cary Grant in drag as a WAC officer, that movie is a scream. The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer is another good one, in it he's being pursued by a teenage Shirley Temple, but he has his eye on Myrna Loy. She is his co-star in Mr Blandings builds his Dream House, another very funny movie. Operation Petticoat is another great one. Of all his screwball comedies I like The Awful Truth the most, and of his serious movies it's a tie between To Catch a Thief and An Affair to Remember. |
Author's Response: *takes notes* That's a lot of movies to add to my "To Watch" list. I'm not sure which is my favorite of the screwball comedies - I don't think I've seen enough of them. Of the serious movies, however, it's hands-down Notorious. :)

|"Tonks felt oddly grateful that the Floo had been charmed so that all she could 'here' was the callerís muffled strident tones..." Darn spellchecks don't check for proper context. Otherwise great update! |
Author's Response: Oh - how embarrassing! *blush* Thanks for letting me know :)

Yay!!! An update! I have been checking and checking again for this update, and I'm so glad it's here!! The only problem is that now I want the next chapter... *pout*

|So glad to see a new chapter... can we have more soon?|
Author's Response: Er - soon? No, probably not. I'm working on "eventually" at this point. :)

|Indeed, nice to see it still lives ^_^ And some very witty and funny scenes you've scripted for the "happy" couple!
The only thing that I've found pretty weird and a bit irritating was the permanent emphasis on Snape's "advanced" age - he's 35/36 during OotP according to JKR which makes Tonks about 13 years his junior. Given the fact that this is the woman who mooned obsessively in canon over exactly the same age as ex-Snape-classmate Lupin (culminating in a public scene and emotional blackmail in front of the whole Order to get her true romanceTM) I find it a bit unlikely that she would find the age-gap noteworthy or that Snape would feel riled about it. It wouldn't even feel very dramatic in our Muggle-world - much less in the WW where people according to JKR grow significantly older. In theory at least, the fact that we met/know nobody's grand parents aside from Mrs. Longbottom, much less someone's great-grand parents which should be rather common in a society for people living way beyond the 100 even without Philosopher's Stones speaks a bit differently. Well, might be a serious case of JKR and numbers... ^_~. Or do you go for 20 years older Rickman!movie!Snape?|
Author's Response: Hrm - a lot to think about. I'm not really all that aware of constantly emphasizing the age difference. Mostly in my own mind I focus on the "he was her teacher" bit - which is a nod to a lot of crap on Ashwinder. I suspect the emphasis on age follows suit from that - those that we knew as adults when we were kids are still "old" in our minds - even if the age difference is not that pronounced. The other thing to keep in mind is that the bulk of this story was written pre-HBP, and it is therefore AU, especially where Lupin is concerned. ;)
And no, I have no idea why there aren't great-grandparents wandering around, either.

|This was the first story I found on Occlumency, and I was *thrilled* to see it updated today. Eagerly awaiting the chaos promised by the Weasley twins :)|
Author's Response: Aww - nifty! The Weasley twins will make another appearance soon.
