Summary: Perhaps love isn’t complicated at all. Perhaps it is a simple as brushing your teeth. For James Potter, however, it has never been this simple for him. In his seventh year at Hogwarts, James realizes that something needs to change so he can win Lily’s heart. While James is talking to his best mate, Sirius, he realizes love is more than a game.
Summary: We know that Lily and James came from two very different households - one muggle and one magic - and that despite differences and adversity they fell in love. How this came to happen, however, is somewhat of a mystery in the Potter world. This fic attempts to figure it out. Along the way the Marauders attempt to figure out a few mysteries of their own, beginning with a string of deaths connected to Saint Mungo's Hospital. And with a war looming on the horizon and a Dark Rising taking place inside the very walls of Hogwarts, it couldn't be a more complicated time for any two people to find happiness.
Summary: And there he was. The one boy she could not stand. His messy, jet black hair was ruffled and untidy and his glasses were sitting crooked on his nose. James Potter was here. With Lily. And all her Muggle friends. At a Muggle ski resort. Could things possibly be worse? Oh yeah, Sirius Black is there, too.
Summary: At the start of her seventh year, Lily Evans doesn’t know quite what to expect of her new duties as Head Girl. Her only certainty is that Potter will manage to mess them up somehow. However, even she couldn’t have foreseen exactly how much he could mess things up.
James isn’t too worried about being Head Boy. He is more concerned by whether Evans would finally get over herself and see that he really had grown up a bit. However, their shared responsibilities were going to change things more that he knew.
Summary: James Potter is alone on his birthday, waiting for his friends to get out of detention. He runs into Lily Evans on the Astronomy Tower and talks her into celebrating with him…even if it's not really a date.
Several months later, they meet again, but things turn out a bit differently this time...

Summary: For Lily Evans, James Potter was just a crush. A guilty pleasure, in other words. She never meant to fall in love with him. Especially after six long years of having to reject him. James would always be chasing after her, so why not live a little before giving in? It's finally come to their Seventh Year at Hogwarts after all. But little did Lily know, James took his tactics to a whole new level- Operation: Lily.
I know I love Lily, but we want a baby. And it’s driving us apart. I think we might have to accept that we might not get one.
So Sarah laughed to herself and thought, “After I am worn out and my master is old, will I now have the pleasure?
Sarah was afraid, so she lied and said, “I did not laugh.” But he said, “Yes, you did laugh.”

Summary: James has a question to ask. On Christmas eve, he is going to have dinner with the Evanses.
Merry Christmas, Alyssa. I hope you enjoy!
He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.

Summary: Lily Evans is practicing her Disillusionment Charm. The thing about being invisible, however, is that sometimes you hear things from people who don't realize you're there...

Summary: It's Halloween and the Head Boy and Head Girl are stuck in the greenhouses for detention. Will they escape the clutches of the deadly Devil's Snare…or worse, one another?

Summary: Lily Evans has got it good. It's her 6th year at Hogwarts, she's got a boyfriend, top-of-the-class grades, and more friends than she can count. At least that was all before she found that bloody book... Turns out Hogwarts is bursting with more secrets and mysteries than she could have ever imagined...
A James/Lily fanfic. With lots of twists. :)
Summary: James Potter's life is near perfect. He's Head Boy (Nobody is really sure why, but he's doing a good job), Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team (and doing a spectacular job there too) and has never been closer to the love of his life (Lily Evans isn't telling him off every second). They may be in a War, but James's life has never looked better. Until the worst possible thing happens. Lily loses her memory, and James is the only one who can help her remember. It may have been a dream come true if he wasn't so responsible. He can't try to make a move when she can't remember why she hates him. Or will he? Think about it, James Potter has never been one for limitations.
