Chemistry & Timing : Chapter 74

…The room was bright with afternoon sunlight, and the leaded glass windows were thrown open. A breeze crept in and the air churned with a warmth that brought the sound of birdsong and the smell of the distant forest. It was just as Remus remembered it. However, with one step into that familiar room it all suddenly seemed to vanish. The ocean grew higher, the waves crashing into the shore, and Remus stood breathless as every unimportant detail was washed away.

She stood before the window, looking out to the distant mountains. Her back was to him, and her hair danced in the wind, the dark curls against midnight blue. It was as if no time had passed, and the repetition of the moment tightened the fibers of his heart. Time stood still, and then she turned around.

Nerves rose higher, growing at an exponential rate. How had he been so calm before? How had he put one foot in front of another to physically get to this point? It was all fulfilling itself, everything falling into place, but Remus now feared if he spoke, said a single word, it would all shatter again…

Exciting news!

Just found out Chemistry & Timing has been nominated for an Enchanted Award for “Best In-character Hermione!”

Chemistry & Timing by @thebookbully — (Remione, Rated M)  She mustn’t be seen. It was the oldest rule of time travel yet one of the hardest to follow. Hermione is thrown back to the start of her third year and the professor who’d always been there for her. Now with Sirius escaped from prison and Remus’ entire past before him again, can she be there for him? And what happens once the year is over?

“Of all the years to fall back in time…”


Even thinking about this fic gives me this internal like … pause. Almost as though just the thought of having read previous chapters, or the anticipation of an update reminds my heart of what it’s been through. That’s not to say this story is sad (though there are a few scenes that just break me) but it’s emotionally awakening. 

Chemistry & Timing is the not-at-all typical story of Hermione travelling in time and falling in love with Remus. Instead of the usual trip to the 70′s, a future, older Hermione Granger ends up back at Hogwarts, forced to reside in hiding with Professor Lupin until she can figure out a path back to her time. What’s worse is that she cannot tell a soul the things she knows about the future.

Unlike a lot of time travel stories, the brilliance of Chemistry & Timing is that we get to see these two characters fall in love, and THEN we get an amazing new look at canon events through Remus’s eyes, having previously fallen for an older Hermione. We go through the war, the painful aftermath, and the anticipation of “When will she go back!?” It’s breathtaking. 

The world building of the werewolf packs is nothing short of amazing, and the character progression for both Remus and Hermione is outstanding. It’s no wonder this fic won three Marauder Medals (Best Drama, Best Non-Maurader Character *Hermione*, and 2nd Place for Best Remus). 

Stories like THIS are why Remione is my OTP.

anonymous asked:

Do you have that one all time favourite fic that you could just go back to again and again and holds a special place in your heart?

The one that jumps right to the forefront of my mind is a fic that just makes me HAPPY to read no matter what, and that’s Aca-Demic Arrangements by @dulce-de-leche-go. It’s a Modern Tomione AU where Hermione is a mouthy barista with a cash flow problem who ends up rooming with Tom (a tattoo-covered attitude problem with roommates who have zero boundaries). Best of all, Tom and his roomies are in an acapella group! It’s beyond amazing.

As for other rereads, I have too many and it all depends on my mood. 

I regularly reread pretty much everything by @keiramarcos, but especially Harry Potter and the Soulmate Bond, Courting Hermione Granger, and Blank Space. The Die and After the Sea by @colubrina (and I know that The Wrong Strain by her will be something I’ll reread over and over again). I’ve reread The Request by redhead414 several times, as well as The Deadline by Lena Phoria. Turn, Reparations, and Foundations by Sara’s Girl. Get Busy Living and No Longer Playing by @bluecurls8. Ooo Stages by @sableunstable. Chemistry & Timing by @thebookbully. Arx Domus Nigrae by @dreadpiratemary. Printed Press by @soupy-george

Yeah, sorry, I have too many. I know I’m leaving some out.
