A Truth by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: James and Lily started off on the wrong foot, and continued limping until their fifth year. And then Lily started to see that Potter wasn't quite as awful as she'd previously believed.

This story was originally written for Lori (Weasley Mom) and Sophie (the owl) in the SBBC Lovebombs month. They like James/Lily and Jane Austen, so this is what I came up with.

Disclaimer: Not only am I NOT JK Rowling, I am not Jane Austen either.

The lines threading through this tale are from Pride and Prejudice.

World Enough by Willow Rosenberg
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 14]

Summary: The Marauders have left school behind them just as war has fallen across the Wizarding World at last--quiet and invisible, but war nonetheless. And on the front lines is this small group of young Hogwarts graduates who have moved from pranking battles to something far more serious.

In the middle of it all, love grows and friendships break, trust forms and wavers, and warriors who are barely more than children must learn not only how to fight but what they are fighting for.
