Summary: We all know James and Lily's relationship ended on a Halloween night with two bright green flashes, but how did it begin?
Were they introduced by friends? Did their eyes meet across a crowded room? Did it perhaps start with a small hello? Did they just lay eyes on each other and immediately hate one another?
Or maybe it began with a perfectly timed, destined chance encounter ... a coincidence, as some would say.
Join James and Lily in their Seventh year at Hogwarts as they recollect the times throughout their Hogwarts years that brought them together.
Teensiest bit of AU included, nothing major.
Summary: James and Lily didn't wake up one morning and find they were in love with each other...but two mornings in particular were a help. So were two letters written in purple ink.
Summary: Lily Evans never had any intention to spend a day at Hogsmeade with James Potter...of course, things don't always turn out as planned.

Summary: Remus Lupin and Sirius Black told Harry that Lily started going out with James in their seventh year, when James 'deflated his head a bit'. But, for some of us, that was a little vague. Here's the true story of how Hogwarts' Dream Couple got together.
Summary: "He may well be the chosen one, but he is still my baby."
Lily and James Potter live every day fearing that the greatest dark wizard in the world will discover their secret. Knowing the threat that lies upon them, Lily reflects on how much it has affected their family.
Summary: After two hundred and eighty-seven rejections, James decides it’s about time some questions are answered. But a shocking discovery gives James one final question. Her answer provides the least expected… a sense of hope. The one-shot sequel to The Beginning.
Summary: Lily Evans is not happy. Voldemort is gaining power, tensions between herself and Petunia are growing, her bridesmaid dress is pink, and to top it all off, JAMES POTTER is the new Head Boy! Despite such a biased pairing, can the two become a serious couple, or will they, like so many others in such a distrustful time, be ripped asunder?
Summary: She is wrong. She is wrong in so many ways, so many ways, in every way imaginable. I am with Lily; she is my girlfriend, I am her boyfriend - but she will never be my Lily. She’ll always be his and even she knows it as she entwines her hand with mine. [CHAPTER 3 REPOSTED!]
Summary: This is the story of a boy and a girl. And a boy. This is the story of love returned and unreturned, of friendship gone dry, and of the things people will do for love. This is the story of James Potter and Lily Evans and Severus Snape. *two-shot*
Summary: There are three sides to every story: yours, mine, and the truth.
Sixth year has finally arrived for the legendary Gryffindor Marauders, Lily Evans, Severus Snape, and Katherine Vance and with it, dozens of new responsibilities. Suddenly they have to juggle NEWT level classes, changing loyalties, and a war that threatens to destroy everything they hold dear. Somehow, in the midst of everything, romance blooms in the most unlikely places.
We all know how the story ends, but how did it begin? What really happened to make Lily fall in love with James?
Every story has a third side, for better or worse. Here is the rest of theirs.
Summary: Lily's wants are really quite simple. She wants James to leave her alone. She wants to be a straight O student. She wants James to go back to whatever planet he came from. She wants to have a complete set of History of Magic notes. And she wants James to be confined to St. Mungo's for the rest of her seventh year. Her friends have other ideas. Poor Lily, everyones against her, even the author.
Summary: Lily Evans, so prone to fear for the worst, has no idea what to expect when James asks her to meet him. Maybe heartbreaking news or maybe the best in her life....
Summary: Harry now knew himself strong enough to face the reality of the stone rather than the dream. Emerald met emerald. “I just have to know.” J/L slight H/G post-DH
Summary: Lily Evans was living a peaceful life. Studying at Hogwarts, spending time with her friends, and being annoyed by James Potter… Oh no, she hated being annoyed. She hated James Potter.
When one of her friends managed to get her hands on a Muggle fortune-telling device, and Lily realizes that this “device” was called a fortune cookie, things will be different. Her friends decided to act like complete girls, and Lily was stuck in the middle. And when she was left to look after a cat, she then finds company with a certain boy with that distinct messy hair.
And then she got a hint on what the future has for her, she just has to realize what it meant. And to realize that the boy in front of her would be the man of her future.
A James/Lily One-shot; something that could actually come true in the Muggle world on rare times.
A big number of little DH Spoilers. So if you still haven't got your hands on your DH copy and you don't want to be spoiled, walk away... Now...
Summary: James Potter is about to give up his pursuit of his six-year crush, Lily Evans. But will he change his mind after an enlightening conversation with an understanding taxicab driver? One-shot, R&R!!
“Have you ever fallen in love?” James asked hesitantly.
“Have you ever loved her with all your heart and soul?”
“Have they never requited your love?”
“Have you ever thought of giving them up?”
“Yep. Did it too. Was without a doubt the worse mistake I’ve made in me bloody life.”
Summary: Lily starts out her seventh year with a boyfriend, a Head Girl badge, and two wonderful friends. Yet, as the year progresses, she is thrown into a game - a game of love. It is not Lily’s preferred game, considering it has no rules. There are simply many different obstacles down the path, including jealousy, denial, trepidation, desire, confusion, wonder, pain… but, if Lily manages to win the game, she is rewarded with the best gift anyone can ask for: the truest of true love.

They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
