One school: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Two Girls: A freak and a chatterbox
Three blood groups: Pure bloods, Half Bloods and Mudbloods
Four Houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin
Five boys: A rebel, a pandered child, a traitor, a werewolf, and a distressed boy.
The story starts with them...
Five, four, three, two, one- Avada Kedavra!
... and ends with them.
Summary: Lily Evans and Severus Snape were best friends. Always had been, perhaps always would be. But there is a thin line between them – a line that has always held Severus back from showing Lily how he really feels about her.
One Christmas, he steps over the line, and gives Lily a simple gift she did not ask for. A kiss.
Summary: After an argument with James, Lily seeks out some old friends and learns about James, her role in the war, and why they need to keep trying.
Summary: Gabrielle LeCorte grew up living next door to the Potters and they were like her family. When they started school she was given the task to 'keep an eye' on James Potter and try to keep him out of trouble. This was easier said than done, especially once he met Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. She became best friends with Sirius Black and was lucky enough to hang around with the infamous Marauders, even if she was more like a babysitter. Would she be destined to clean up after them her whole Hogwarts career or would she break away and become something separate from just the 'Marauder’s girl'?
Sirius Black stumbles onto a most curious scene while checking up on one of his closest friends, the wife of his best mate. Lost and confused he follows the signs until they reach into a depth unknown to him. From this point, he seeks the help of another dear friend, and together they think, suffer, and laugh their way to some answers and some dead ends. Only in the end, do they find the answer to the one question that burns in their minds: how will we go on?

Summary: Sometimes the things we most want to change are the things that we cannot. One young man must learn to accept this.
Summary: Albus Dumbledore sighed. It wasn’t just any old sigh, either. It was a heavy sigh. A sigh sighed by people who had worked a twelve hour shift at a manual labor industry and come home to put their feet up and have a nice, steaming cup of tea. It was that kind of sigh.
Summary: James struggles to make a mark in the Gryffindor Quidditch Team and woo the one girl who is not interested in him, Sirius struggles to throw away the image he's gained as a Black and start over with a new bunch of friends, Remus struggles to hide his 'furry little problem' from the first friends he's had in a long time, and Peter struggles with school work and to keep up with his cool friends. The only thing these boys have in common is their house. Facing the exasperation of their teachers, the enmity of Severus Snape, the ire of Lily Evans and the plottings of Voldemort's followers, the four unlikely friends find it hard to keep afloat, but bear everything with the Marauder spirit - something Remus must remember to do years into the future, as he faces the biggest struggles of his life - coming to terms with his last friend's death, and figuring out what his feelings for Tonks are. But in the end whatever happens shall be fate's will...
Summary: Peter Pettigrew wasn't always a traitor. He was a Marauder, a prankster and a good friend.
Peter Pettigrew wasn't always called Wormtail.
Perhaps, one change led to the other?
Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling but I doubt you're surprised by that revelation.
Summary: Now in his seventh year, Remus Lupin is a calm and responsible student. His friends know this and often take advantage, knowing that he never takes it to heart.
But sometimes, just sometimes, Moony longs for revenge, especially when Padfoot takes things one step too far.
But Padfoot is wise to Marauder pranks, so for April Fool's Day this year, Moony enlists the help of four girls who are also champing at the bit to humiliate the 'too damn adorable' Sirius Black.

Thank you to Alyssa (Harry4lif) and Wendy (Kiley) for their help in beta'ing this tale.
The song featured in this story is Hot Legs by Rod Stewart which was a huge hit in the early part of 1978 and seemed to lend itself very well to Sirius Black!
Disclaimer Sirius and Remus are not mine *sigh* but belong to JK Rowling as do James,Lily and Peter. The Harley-Queens however are my rather fluffy invention.
