Remus and Tonks by stratosmacca Remus and Tonks by stratosmacca
Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter series.

I finally finished reading the entire lot of books a couple weeks ago, and these two emerged as my favorite characters (which I found kind of surprising, since Snape was really the only reason I decided to read the novels in the first place).

I was incredibly disappointed at the way they were treated in the end of the Deathly Hallows novel (which was my least favorite of the books), and this sketch was kind of born from that. They're awesome characters and they deserved far better.

Looking forward to seeing both of them in the next Harry Potter film! :)

For some reason I saw the preview of this and thought that it was Tonks and David Tennant Doctor.

Was only slightly dissapointed.

I immediately thought the same thing.

Wish Lupin had a sonic screwdriver to make up for it though.

Heehee! Fighting Voldemort is sooo good for re-kindleing your love life! But still, Remus is a little upset that Tonks is so much younger. Love Tonemus!

(inner thoughts)
Tonks: yes he's 15 years older then me, no I don't have daddy issues!
Lupin:... how the hell did i get a girl 15 years yonger then me?

I love these two! Such a sweet couple! Re-reading the series, I had forgotton that there is a 14 year age difference between the two.

I really like this drawing. The folds in the clothes and the shading are both very well drawn. Well done!

Remus and Tonks had to die in the battle to create a parallel between them and James and Lily. Harry was their son's godfather like Sirius was Harry's. Both couples died fighting for a better world for their son.

They are my favorite couple in the whole series

They would have been awesome parents, you can just tell. Why oh why did she have to murder them? And Fred and Severus and Sirius... Come to think of it all my favorite characters died! Awesome sketch though you can tell Remus is confident and commands attention when he's dueling and she looks playful and happy to be by his side.

I love this, it's awesome! :D
My two fave characters... and I hated it when JKR killed them off, too! :shakefist: You're right, they did deserve far better.

Lupin was the best characters of books. I'm disappointed that he died. ><

OMG I LOVE THIS thank you so much ! lupin(moony) is my all time fav character this is soo awesome ! :D :D :D

Yeah, I thought there was no point really in having them die at the end. But I bileve the reason JK killed them off is too leave their son Teddy as an orphan. Why she did that, I dont know, perhaps she was leaving herself a life line so she could pick up the series again at a later date, think about it, parents killed by voldemort, raised by the not-so-nice grandparent, the only family he really has is his god-father Harry Potter. I think Teddy Lupin is a very fertile character in that she could choose him as the new protagonist if she was up for another few books.

Oh yeah and he's a metamorphungus (or whatever).
AMoRPoP Featured By Owner May 27, 2011
Actually, it as to show the contrast between Harry and Teddy's lives. Both were orphans but while Harry never knew true love or friendship before Hogwarts, Teddy was always surrounded by it. And Andromeda is nice, I think.

my fav characters. :)
Artemis-Day Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
They look badass. XD And yeah, it sucks that they died.
Page-Mistress Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2010
I was disappointed too. It's like, she spent all that time getting us to like characters, only to kill them. And these two! They get married, have kid, and then they BOTH die! That's messed up!
TheSkadebjerg Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010  Student Digital Artist
I hate JKR, for letting them die, in the deathly hallows....
There truely were my two fevourite characters..... ;-(
parsnipMcadams Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I completely agree. Their deaths certainly deserved better than a passing mention.
RLKarnes Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Super cool! This is going to sound dumb, but I love Lupin's pants!
Laineyfantasy Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010

MidnightMoon990 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:( i was so sad wen they died
Samui619 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010
i agree, they didnt need to die, so unnecessary!
Medlilove Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
this is really great, why is Snape the reason why you read the books? I don't understand why anyone likes him
Melesifant Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010
I love this! I agree with you, if that had to happen it deserved a big scene, not an after thought.

I love this! :)
Only-Another-Wraith Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2010  Student Writer
they did deserve FAR better in the last book. i was so disappinted at the end, and i hated how some of my favourite characters died...without much leading up to their deaths or anything.
i love how you've drawn this. they look quite the part (: :heart:
BimboCrittenden Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010
not my favorite couple, but still a sweet one. this is great :D u really captured the whole "she could be his daughter thing" lol, or older niece maybe... :lol:
Tezelshmack Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Aww! Such an awesome couple! I love your signature btw, it kicks major butt!
Asa-dusk Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009
Great picture.

I really hated when Rowling went and killed them, leaving Teddy all alone. After all they went through, they deseaved a happy ending.

Stupid Bellatrix. and Dolohov.
cordially-yours Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009
I agree... though it felt real to see that all characters had hidden flaws even some of my faves such as Tonks and Lupin. THOUGH I WISH THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO DIE!
annatonks Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009  Student General Artist
Very good! You got to show how special they are!
Dracoforever Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2009
Rowling kinda went over there deaths like: There is a tree, a monkey, lupin and tonks are dead, catfish.

I was like WTF! NOOO!
stratosmacca Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009  Professional General Artist
LOL, that is SO true! So so sad, but oh so true.
