[Series index] Warp and Weft  
Warp and Weft
After Voldemort's defeat, Remus and Tonks can finally start piecing the strands of their lives back together. (A loose collection of AU stories that continue from Kaleidoscope.)
This series is "minimally AU": Yes, Remus and Tonks survive the Battle of Hogwarts. But technically, to the best of my knowledge, this ficverse is consistent with everything that is explicitly written in book-canon. (Including the Epilogue, if we grant that Harry may have been exaggerating slightly about the frequency of Teddy's visits...)
