Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. 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.
Summary: “And that,” Potter said, his glasses slightly fogged, “was the best kiss I’ve ever had.”
Lily was smiling, too. “Oddly enough, Potter, I share the same sentiments as you.”
30 July 07: Chapter 15 up and runnin'!! Eventually, 16 forward will post. Thanks you guys - and yay Deathly Hallows! No Spoilers, but definite cannon!!!!!
Even Harry wondered how in the world the obvious loathing Lily felt for James could have turned into a marriage. How could they have loved each other? Well, if this ever bothered or troubled you in the slightest, look no further! 'The Princess and Prat' picks up around the time of the Pensieve Scene in book 5...
Read "The Princess & the Prat" to find out how it all began!!! Also posted on HPFF.com, with over 1110 reviews.
Summary: Lily is sick of pranks and lies. James is love-sick. She doesn’t believe the excuses given even when it’s truthful…this time around. He could be categorized as dead if he didn’t breathe, move and sleep- though, he's only done those last two under limits. It’s up to his friends, the Marauders, to get them together and for once, do an honest deed. That’s what friends are for after all.
BIG SORRY FOR THE FACT THAT THIS HASN'T BEEN UPDATED IN SUCH A LONG TIME- NOT THAT THERE WERE MANY READERS. SCHOOL, OTHER STUFF GOT IN THE WAY. HOPEFULLY WE'LL START WORKING ON IT AGAIN THIS SUMMER.
Summary: Lily never thought she'd end up with James. James didn't realize just how much he cared for Lily. As they grow closer together, they realize just how much they need each other as times grow hard under the rise of Lord Voldemort

5-31-07--Doing a major update to the first 5 chapters to make them fit with the rest of the story. You may want to actually reread them! Chaps 1-3 are done.
Lily's thoughts are a sacred place. People think that head of hers stores valuable information for he next Potions assignment but those people are so wrong. In fact her head is filled with rather rude and amusing thoughts but she's strong as steel and keeps that in her instead of out.
But the arrival of a Veela causes her blood to boil and her thoughts to rapidly twist and churn in anger and all. Not only is ths Veela pretty, and french, she's also flirtacious. A dangerous mix. So what's this got to do with anything? Well, for one she's been messing around with a ton of boys making many girls so annoyed including our Lily here. Her thoughts start to leak which equals an hour of witty comments and laughing fits. This causes many heads to turn. Including one of those with messy hair.
Summary: Everyone knows that Lily hates James and James likes Lily. James is usually trying his best to impress Lily while she's trying to avoid him at all costs. Neither is working and they always seem to be together through a series of crazy and weird events. . Read and review, this is my first story! For information about chapter 4 and 5, read my bio!
Summary: It is the Maruader's Seventh Year. With it comes more problems - Voldemort is gaining power, danger is rising, and James still cannot get Lily to go out with him. Join us as we explore the little-known story of James and Lily's past.
**Although this is a James/Lily fic, the Marauders also star in it as well.
3/12/10 I've been editing and I'm pretty sure I'm going to take this up again...
Summary: James and Lily are married and Lily is acting strange and emotional. More so than usual that is. However, James may have an idea as to what may be causing Lily's strange emotions.
Summary: Prim-and-proper-and-tough Lily.
She was only shaken once.Not by James’s romance, nor by Voldemort’s evil antics, but by that little joyous miracle called ‘motherhood’. And in her case, it had nothing to do with erratic hormones and mood swings.
LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff tells in this story how the mother of a destined hero feels, her perplexity of whether To Laugh or Cry.
