He was a boy, she was a girl, can I make it anymore obvious? They were in love, haven't you heard, how they rocked each other's world?
But how did they get there? If your read this story, you shall find out. Join the Marauders, for their last year at Hogwarts, packed with adventure. From close calls with Death Eaters, to drunk house-elves, this tale will keep you hanging to the very end... I hope.
Begins around November in their last year, and will continue until after Hogwarts.
Summary: James Potter had asked her before for a date, several times, although not always for himself. Now, as Lily Evans gazes at her reflection in the mirror, she wonders why he keeps asking her and just why she's finally said yes.
I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this story has been written for the first round of the Character Clinic Triathlon over at the MNFF beta boards. Prompt: First Kiss.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree, so don't get them riled by confusing us.
Thank you very much to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this fic for me. I need to also add that Natalie may be a Hufflepuff, but she does not have fluffy hair and in no way resembles the Hestia Jones that appears in this story. Finally, you may recognise some OC's from my fic Lions of Gryffindor. This isn't exactly 'caron' compliant with that story, but it kinda fits ... in parts ... sort of.
Summary: He had been meandering though the distance for ages, unsure of what she would say in the final moment.
Song lyrics taken from U2’s The Sweetest Thing. And I am not J.K.Rowling.
Summary: James Potter and Lily Evans just started dating. Here is their little prank on the students of Hogwarts! A songfic to "Take Me or Leave Me" from the musical RENT. Slightly AU.
Summary: First problem: James Potter is Head Boy. Second problem: Why is he acting so different? The James Potter that Lily Evans knows is arrogant and conceited and loves Quidditch and bullying his “inferiors” with an unimaginable passion. This year he’s kind and charming and much more, shall we dare say it…mature. He is also much more distant than he has ever been in all her years at Hogwarts. In her seventh year, Lily finds out that there is much more to James Potter than meets the eye and together they set out on the long and precarious road to each other’s hearts.
Summary: It's the summer before Lily Evans is due to attend her seventh year at Hogwarts. She is enjoying every minute of it, and her faithful bicycle takes her anywhere she wants to go. But what should have been just another relaxing day turns out to be the complete opposite when James Potter turns up and challenges Lily to race against him! Tensions run high, and Lily is determined to show James that her bicycle is faster than James' broomstick.
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
Summary: Learning to live, just might cost them their lives.
Lily Evans needs to learn how to really live. Not her imitation of living. Real living doesn't involve homework, school, following the rules, or playing it safe. Real living is taking risks, breaking the rules, being spontaneous, and going to fast. And there is one person that is going to show her how. One summer and James Potter later and Miss Lily Evans might not recognise herself. Too bad, all good things must come to an end.....
"Lily, we're friends. I would never betray any of my friends. Plus, you honestly think I would let old Moldy-shorts get to me?" he joked.
Summary: Imagine how it would feel being the last one to bear your last name. No particular family, few relative, no one to count on. Imagine being the last in line, the only one who could hold your head up high and say “yes, thank you very much, I am an Evans.” I’m only eighteen. I ccan barely imagine my life ahead, much less without my family.
Summary: Lily finally admits she was wrong. But now, it's too late.
I always told myself that I didn't want to be with him, that it was a terrible idea. Now that I'm changing my mind, he's not around.
Companion/Sequel to Confessions of a Boy in Love. Lily's POV
I take a deep breath so my voice won’t shake.
“What would you do if we died tomorrow?”
He takes a step away from me, but still keeps me in his arms. “What?”
“What would you do if you knew that we died tomorrow?”
“What kind of question is that?”
“Don’t give me that, James. You know that we are going to die soon. There is no point in pretending that we aren’t.”
James and Lily have a conversation two days before Halloween.
Mr. and Mrs. Potter- or, as they prefer to be called, Lily and James- are two well-respected and talented top field operatives for the Order of the Phoenix. But they have sacrificed having a home of their own and the careers of their choice to fight bravely against Lord Voldemort. Now, at barely twenty years of age, life has thrown them another curve . . . Lily is pregnant. How can you face starting a family when all you've ever known of adult life is war? In this tale, everybody's favorite couple is forced to grow up once again.
They were the couple that made single people jealous and older people shake their heads fondly, lost in thought.
Summary: James and Lily didn't always get along, and as James looks back on his relationship with Lily over the last seven years, he realizes that she is not just a normal girl.
Summary: At the end of 6th year, after James and Lily have an argument, Lily comes to the realisation that James is human after all, and she’s been quite the hypocrite.
Summary: James always put being a Gryffindor above all else...
Summary: If a girl you love likes you, it doesn't necessarily mean that she wants to go a step ahead with the relationship. Or that she wants you to be something more than just friends.
But, if the girl you love hated you and then started liking you and became your friend, it is possible that she may also learn to love you back. All you have to do is wait for the right time.
This is a sequel to my other James/Lily one shot: Beneath the Shell, but it can be read as a stand alone, too.
A/N: Warning is there just in case, there is seriously, nothing major going on.
Summary: He’d learned enough from hindsight that on days like today, it seemed like Lily Evans didn’t mind a little bit of conversation.

What happens when Lily and her friends accidentally stumble across something in the forest they shouldn’t have?
