The early one-shot fanfic A Test of Wills, or Flirting for the Social Inept by HRHBunbury, published July 2003, has been credited for much of the pre-Half-Blood Prince support for the pairing. One fan writes that it "probably kicked off the Remus/Tonks ship."
The fan reaction to Remus/Tonks in canon was quite varied. While many Remus/Sirius shippers were upset that Remus ended up with someone other than Sirius, others didn't see necessarily see Remus/Tonks as contradiction Remus/Sirius. On the other hand, while most Remus/Tonks shippers were thrilled to see the pairing become canon, other disliked the way it was handled. There was also much debate on the appropriateness of Tonks' behavior throughout the book, and particularly on her confrontation of Remus right after Dumbledore's death. However, there were elements of a minor Ship War between Remus/Tonks and Remus/Sirius shippers and many essays were written on the topic.

- Casefic elements, going on missions together for the Order of the Phoenix
- The characters are often portrayed as queer even in het pairings
