Posting at metamorfic_moon is now closed for the final time. It's been lovely to see a last flurry of fics posted here over the hols, and it seems very appropriate that the final one of all leaves Remus and Tonks together after the hospital wing scene, looking to the future. A good place to leave them and us, which is also really where it all started.

Once again, thank you to all who have contributed over the years and shared the R/T love with us. All the fics and art will be archived here from that first Jumble to the last Advent. It really has been the best of times.

Title: Landslide
Author: shimotsuki
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 | mild profanity, brief descriptions of violence and injuries, canon minor-character death (oh, and Dumbledore, of course)
Format & Word Count: Fic, 7600 words

Summary: Remus is so very certain that he is right to push Tonks away, no matter how much pain it causes both of them. And Tonks will never give up, not as long as she knows that Remus loves her. But the inevitable collision between the irresistible force and the immovable object takes an unexpected turn on the night the Death Eaters invade Hogwarts.

Author’s Notes: This is a stand-alone story -- we all know what happens in the hospital-wing scene! -- but it's also part of the Kaleidoscope series, set between To See Clearly (which introduces Bess's spectacles) and One Step Forward (where we see just why Tonks makes Remus promise at the end of this story).

I don't think there are words enough to say how important metamorfic_moon has been to me. It was one of the very first fanfic communities I joined on LiveJournal, and the various events here -- especially the Jumbles -- challenged me to push myself far outside my comfort zone when I was first learning to write fic. And I got to know so many wonderful writers and readers here, people who I still keep in touch with even though many have moved onto other fandoms and interests.

So I think it's fitting that I post this story as my final submission at Meta. For one thing, I'm posting only minutes before the event closes, which makes it just like old times. ;) For another, it's the hospital-wing fic -- a scene every R/T writer just has to attempt! And besides, this is a belated follow-up to my first attempt at the same scene, for the Last Chance Full Moon Showdown in (heh) 2007. This version is drastically different, although a few paragraphs of the original survive. (There are also a few lines taken from a version of this scene I attempted even longer ago, as a drabble at the Sugar Quill. And long-time readers with long memories might note that I've given Molly a few lines that used to belong to Tonks in an earlier version of One Step Forward, before I edited that scene out!) And, I'm still challenging myself at Meta up until the end, because this is the longest one-shot I have ever written.

In good old metamorfic_moon fashion, we've decided to keep the community open for posting through Saturday, January 14. So if the holidays rushed by before you were able to write that last fic or do that last piece of fanart you wanted to post before we say goodbye for good, you still have a week to do so.

Thanks to everyone who has already submitted something for our send-off!

Title: Moon By Moon
Author: shimotsuki
Rating & Warnings: PG, no warnings
Format & Word Count: Fic, 2205 words
Summary: Last month, Sirius carefully explained to Tonks that Remus needs privacy after the full moon. But now somehow, something has started to change. (October through December of OotP.)
Author’s Notes: Hmm, I seem to have a post-moon theme going here this time. That's actually a coincidence -- this story was a WIP I'd had languishing since at least 2007, so I decided to use this event as motivation to finish it and post! This story is part of the Kaleidoscope series, set one month after Stripes, but it can be read as a stand-alone story.

Title: Love at Christmas
Author: katyscarlett76
Rating & Warnings: PG
Format & Word Count: Fic / 1417 words
Summary: It’s Christmas time in OOTP. The attack on Arthur gives Remus and Tonks the push to finally admit the depth of their feelings.
Author’s Note: Written as a gift for [info]gilpin25 for the It’s A Gift Challenge at [info]pulped_fictions. Some of the events in this fic were referred to in my fic Comfort and Joy, I hope you enjoy this expansion of them. Pure R/T fluff for Christmas :)

Title: The Delicate Art of Present Giving
Author: gilpin25
Rating & Warnings: PG and none
Format & Word Count: Fic; 2429 words
Summary: Tonks thought that buying a present for the man who has everything must be positively simple in comparison to buying for one who hasn’t very much at all.
Author’s Notes: Written as a gift for wildmagelet for Winterval at pulped_fictions. I also very much wanted to write one last R/T Christmas story for here. Thanks to all who've read and left comments on mine over the years at Meta, and Happy Hols/Merry Christmas to all. ♥

Title: The Season Bright
Author: wildmagelet
Setting: Post-Hogwarts, AU
Word Count: 16,700 or so according to Word, but it's somehow picked up an extra 1,000 words during the transfer to ff.net. Pity I can't send chapters to my thesis supervisors via that site - instant word count boost!
Summary: Christmas, 1999. Wizarding England, had Voldemort never managed to
create the horcruxes but stayed dead and buried after the attack on the
Potters. Some events have unfolded a little differently. Some couples are just
meant to be. Remus/Tonks.

A/N: Written (with some pulling of hair and bitter cursing of writer's block, but much love :D) as a Christmas gift for shimotsuki for Winterval at pulped_fictions.

LJ completely loathes me at the moment, so posted at ff.net:

Title: Taking Care
Author: shimotsuki
Rating & Warnings: PG, no warnings (other than a little angst and a little fluff)
Format & Word Count: Ficlet, 1360 words
Summary: Tonks and Remus are learning how to build trust again. The full moon interferes.
Author’s Notes: I've been wanting to write something new to post here, but work has kept me a lot busier than I was expecting this month. In the meantime, this is a ficlet I posted on my own journal a couple of months ago. It's set in the Kaleidoscope ficverse, so Remus and Tonks were married right after the July full moon, and this is August. Which means it's the first time they've spent the morning after the moon together.
