Mum, dad,

I'm going to have to beg off the dinner on Friday. Me and a couple more of us got dropped among the pretty hills here for a week-or-two long thing under cover. Apparently, a venerable wizardly couple might be doing more than they seem to or should, and we need to figure out if that's so and, well, take the appropriate measures. And obviously, even if trainee, I'm good for undercover work, you know!

Anyway. When we're done, I'll apparate directly home and let you know I'm OK!

Your loving and stuck-in-the-highlands daughter,

P.S. Yes, that's my owl, too. He's undercover as well!

Wink ;)

It was still hard to believe, sometimes, that her baby was an adult now. An awesome, amazing, outstanding, Auror-trainee, overall-winning adult.

And it was his birthday. Turning twenty-one.

It was, all-in-all, filling her heart with glee. She wanted to spend every possible moment with him - when he was away from training, and not during vacations and Hogsmeade weekends and such, when he, naturally, was with Victoire Weasley. As was right.

... but there was still so much to talk about. So much to do together.

She thought long and hard about presents. She wanted to give him the world - although in a way, the world was his. His for the taking.

Finally she did what ... she always would - bough presents on an impulse. (Hah, shocking, isn't it?)

One was a cashmere scarf that caught her eye because of its, well, turquoise colour.
The other was a nice little triskele 'pot' that she spelled so that whatever was in it - a salve, she knew that any Auror ought to have some stuff ready at hand, or whatever else he might choose to keep in it - would keep for as long as any of it remained inside.

Not morning person and all, she'd be there when he woke up in the morning, with a bright smile and her presents. And, well, just being there. Unlike all the times before. That counted for something, didn't it?

Tonks was late. She hadn't arrived till the battle was already in full progress; and she could not find Remus.

For a very, very long time.

Then finally Aberfoth gave her a direction and she set off, through the dust and the curses and the cries. And she was late to do anything about what happened. If she'd gotten there but half a minute earlier, she maybe would have managed to distract Dolohov, to do something besides just seeing the curse hit her husband and him falling down to the ground, lifeless.

And then time seemed to stretch for her. Sounds distorted. Her eyes only saw the body on the ground, as she rushed to his side, knelt, taking his head on her lap.

Gone. Not even a glimmer of life in those blue eyes.

Her fingers closed the lids. Smoothed the fringe away from his forehead.
Her mind had switched off the reality of the battle, even if her body was shaking with the adrenaline, the fear, the anger, and now... the grief. But she was totally oblivious to anything besides him. Or, now, the absence of him.

She more felt the force of, than saw or heard, the Avada Kedavra that hit her. She didn't realise who was that killed her. Her torso just fell back at the blow as her consciousness shut down.

Blankness. Blackness.

Then she blinked.

Was she supposed to?

She blinked again, then kept her eyes open. She was in a room with the blinds down, but sunlight spattered on the walls. 'A room?'

... "Remus?" she gasped, but there was no response. She raised her head from the pillow (pillow? She had been out-of-doors, on the grounds of Hogwarts... but this didn't look like the Hospital Wing. Didn't look like St. Mungo's either, she'd spent enough time in both places.) and looked around.

In fact, this looked... like a hotel. She'd been in several, on Auror and Order missions. This room had the impersonality of a hotel room.

Her body ached, but not unbearalby so. And since there was nobody else in the room, she was going to have to look around on her own, right? Carefully, she swung her legs out of the bed, took stock of what was there - nothing special missing; nothing extraordinary but what was on her, for a muggle hotel - she walked to the door.

The inevitable tripping came just as she reached it; and flailing for support, she caught on the door handle and turned it and spilled out of the room in a fashion very different from the cautious, vigilant way she had planned on.
It looked more like falling flat on her nose.

Your Name or Alias: Kiki
Livejournal Account: kikibug13
Are you 18 years or older at the time of submission?: Yes. Have been older for a while ^_^

Character Name: Nymphadora Lupin (Née Tonks)
Character's Canon: Harry Potter by J. K. Rowlina
What type of canon it is: Books (and movies, though I tend to stick a bit more to the books if there is a difference)
Your character's livejournal: littlemorelove

Age: (almost) 25
Hair Color: Changes at will. Preferred, bubblegum pink, but may be anything
Eye Color: Changes at will (as well as her entire appearance). Often, blue, though sometimes dark and twinkling.
Is your character dead at time of submission?: Yes. Killed at the Battle of Hogwarts.
Character's Disabilities, if any: Very clumsy, especially if excited (which is often the case).

BackgroundCollapse )

Personality (100 words or more):
Tonks is energetic. Eager. Clumsy. Inquisitive. Determined, well, stubborn, to be honest. Loves very deeply, and can forgive a lot to those she loves and who love her. She's also temperamental and flares up very easily on some topics, but it also quickly goes away.
Beneath all of this, she's clever, curious, and capable. Has a practical sense of humour; loves flying (on a broomstick, yes) and Quidditch. Loves reading too.
Honestly gives her shot to live life to the fullest.
She's also a rather typical Hufflepuff - hard-working, loyal, good friend, amicable, good natured (unless you do cross her the wrong way). Open mind and open heart.

Also, deep down she has a reckless, proud, brave streak which fuels her and leads her into situations that are often less than reasoned out, sometimes less than sane.

She's very active, usually applying more energy to things that is strictly necessary (which is partly the reason for her clumsiness). She is able to run on that energy longer than seems normal; but when she runs out, she's like a puppet with the strings cut, including emotionally.

Oh, and she hates being called Nymphadora. So don't.

Personal Inventory (This is where anything the character has on hand needs to be listed. If anything basic is forgotten, it is okay to email the mods):
- Wand
- A small potions kit
- Two books - one with new Auror spells she had been researching on, and one "The witch, a mother", that she was in too much of a hurry to remove from her pouch when she set off to the Battle.
- A bar of chocolate.
- Clothes (Robes, probably somewhat torn and bedraggled, out of the Battle; underwear)
- A small pouch with wizarding money
