James Potter and Lily Evans have become a legendary couple in wizarding history, an extremely talented pair that later became parents of the Boy Who Lived. However, it is not as widely known amongst magical folk that they did not start off, in their early days at Hogwarts, as being very fond of one another. Here is the story of the eventful education of two of the most intelligent, witty, stubborn, and fiery tempered witches and wizards in Hogwarts history as they learn that it takes a lion to tame a lion.

Summary: Lily Evans had made fast friends with James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew. When a dare puts Lily and James in the center of gossip, Lily denies it by saying that they are "just friends." The problem is, James is madly in love with her. On top of all that, Mr. Evans is pulling his hair out at the fact that his daughter's friends are all boys.
Summary: Lily doesn't like James, and she takes every opportunity to insult him- that's a commonly known fact. But what happens when one day she goes too far, and she doesn't know if she's ever going to see him again?
For those of you who have read this before it was updated, remember to read Chapter 1, because Chapter 2 was accidentally submitted first! :)
Summary: A COMPANION TO 5369 TIMES... AND COUNTING.
In James's and Lily's third year, James's and Sirius's plan to throw a sparkler into Snape's cauldron goes wrong when Slughorn comes by, delaying their plan and causing the sparkler to become dangerously shorter. In desperation, Sirius throws it into a certain redhead's cauldron. When the redhead thinks that it's James, she comes after him in fury.
James had better watch his back... because she plays by the rules.
Summary: Do you know the feeling of anticipation? When you know you're finally going to get something you've wanted for so long that you feel like you're going to burst with excitement? Well, I felt like that when I saw the Head Girl's badge in my hand. That was before I knew Potter was Head Boy.
Merlin, did he turn my seventh year upside down.
Summary: Lily placed the violin on the floor, the sorrowful song only added to her misery. She could still feel Snape’s kiss on her mouth, and wondered why she had done such a thing. Looking up at the doorway she saw James standing there, and a new emotion filled her, something she hadn’t felt before...
Summary: It's the summer before Lily Evans' seventh year, and she can't stop thinking about a certain boy.
This is a songfic to the song 'A Minute Without You' by Hanson
Summary: Co-captains of the Gryffindor Quidditch Team, James Potter and Lily Evans finally understand each other. If James doesn’t ask Lily out everything will be fine between them…right? This story is one that will unbalance the peace and create something else. ~~One-Shot~~
Summary: James is mad over Lily Evans. He can’t get her out of his thoughts, out of his heart. He tried to win her over many times and every single time he was turned down. Still, he continues to pursue her with a half-crazed obsession. Lily swore never to have anything to do with James Potter and his conceited ways. The laws of attraction are confusing and dangerous though and without her consent she begins to fall for him over the last two years of school.
Fifth Chapter, Padfoot or Evans? is being written. I'd like a few more reviews before I submit it, but it isn't a requirement, of course. Just a wish by me. As for those who have already reviewed - thank you so much! I'm glad to have you all! *hugs* Never fear, for chapter five is drawing near!
Hard to Find, Difficult to Leave, Impossible to Forget by Chris_04
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 10]
Summary: “Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
Lily Evans and her best friend, Joanna Brooks start their 7th year at Hogwarts. It looks like this year won't be different from any other, with Lily and James bickering constantly, and Lily as popular as always. Lily is head girl (not surprising anyone), and James is just as arrogant as usual. When Lily learns that he's head boy, she is very annoyed. The only difference in their lives is the recent attacks by some "Lord Voldemort". Before they have time to even figure out who that is, there is another attack. How will they manage another day like this? So, here's my 80,000th draft of "Hard to Find, Difficult to Leave, Impossible to Forget" (or at least it seems that way:) Hope you enjoy it!!!
Summary: As Sirius walks amidst the rubble of Lily and James’s house that fateful night, he reflects on their relationship over the years. Sirius’s POV.
Summary: “Thanks a million, umm… sorry I don’t know your name,” she said.
“It’s okay, because I don’t know yours either,” the boy said half-laughing, as Lily giggled.
James has done the one thing Lily was afraid of: James breaking her heart. Lily is now trying to convince herself that she doesn’t need James, but when her attempts fail, she decides to give him one last chance. Contains a notebook, a white lily, and some poems that you will never forget

Summary: We all know that the relationship between James Potter and Lily Evans started in their seventh year, but what caused it? The Diaries and Post of the Original Two holds the diaries and posts of Lily, James, and the rest of the Marauders as they deal with the emotional heartache and the physical strain of their seventh and final year at Hogwarts.

Summary: Ever wondered how Lily and James came to be the bickering pair Harry espied in the Pensieve? And how they had then become the happy and loving couple Harry has heard about?
Of course she didn't hate him upon seeing him, and clearly he hadn't merely walked up to her, an irritatingly smooth talking eleven-year-old. No, this is their real journey -- from their very first encounter to their very first kiss.
