Summary: Before Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts, he is shown a group photo of the original Order of the Phoenix, back when it was his parents fighting against Voldemort.
But a photo doesn’t show their lives, their personalities, their every day conversations ... or how much organising can be needed to take one single photograph when you have a room full of people – especially when four of whom liked to call themselves “Marauders” back in their school days ...
Summary: Slytherin House. It is where his legacy is; his family has always been in the serpentine House, save for an occasional Ravenclaw. He grew up learning about Salazar Slytherin and seeing the green and silver colours of one of Hogwarts’ Founders. There was simply no other option for one of his blood. But is that really the truth? Is it possible for there to be a lion in the midst of snakes?
Summary: James Potter has just informed his fellow Marauders that Lily Evans finally agreed to go out with him. His best friend Sirius Black is feeling rather evil and naughty and cooks up a scheme to follow James and Lily under the invisibility cloak on their first date for pure Marauder fun. He convinces Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew to join him. But things don't go as planned and much chaos and unexpected events unfold...
The title was inspired by Fall Out Boy's album title, From Under the Cork Tree.
Summary: She had always been his favorite cousin. Through everything their family had put them through, they stuck together. But as they grow older and as secrets are revealed, they grow apart. Soon, love turns to hate and friendship to betrayal.
AU Warning because of some tweaking I did to the Black family tree so it was more to my liking, but other than that it's perfectly canon.
Summary: Severus Snape resorts to desperate measures to win Lily back after the "Mudblood" incident.
Summary: “With a little thing called trickery, lies and deceit ...”
Based on the Shakespeare play, Much Ado About Nothing, this fic follows the Marauders, Lily, and her identical twin friends, Isabella and Henrietta (Izzie and Henrie to most) as they fall in and out of love, through complex, elaborate and intricate tricks, plots and schemes. This fic has everything. The Marauders, Shakespeare, humour, romance, devious plans and maybe even a bit of snogging here and there ... so are you ready?
“Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into Hey, nonny, nonny”
[Taken from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing]
Summary: Love is not love,
which alters when it alteration finds...
Nyxandriana Brisk: Ravenclaw, sixth year, Shakespeare buff, designated 'odd one out', never been kissed, no one knows her name.
Nyxandriana Brisk: Just fell in love.
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.
Summary: You might think you know the story of the Marauders and their peers, but you only know its ending and a few scenes preceeding that.
They went to school amidst Voldemort's first ascent to power, and they were not the only ones around then, either. Herein you will find their story, as well as the story of their friends and peers. It doesn't have a happy ending, though they had such a merry youth.
I repeat, it's not a happy ending, but you already knew that. However, you may find joy in what happened before then... We know they did.
Note: I removed the story after the release of DH and made some drastic changes to chapter one. Chapter two will follow soon...
Summary: One remark. One phrase was all it took to pique Sirius Black's interest. Prequel to A Suggestion.
Summary: James Potter has been chosen to replace the Gryffindor Seeker. Is he prepared to follow the orders of his Quidditch captain or will he ruin the game by being the arrogant young boy he is?
Summary: This is a story about the boys who knew the true meaning of ‘friendship’.
This is a story of ‘Boy meets girl - Girls hates boy’.
This is a story of how lives can change in an instant…
…and how friends can become total strangers.
This is the story - of the Marauders.
Summary: James Potter's once privileged and sheltered life alters dramatically as Lord Voldemort increases his stronghold on Great Britain. While a rational but brilliant Transfiguration teacher, a grieving socialite mother, a star-gazing, forest-dwelling centaur, and a host of other characters contemplate the vicious and constant conflict between Good and Evil, James embarks on a dangerous life fuelled by passion, love, anger and blood...
Things can only get redder.
Chapter 20 is up, and it's been nominated for the Quicksilver Quills!
Summary: One suggestion. Five measly words was all it took to change Sirius Black's life forever.
Excerpt from Chapter 13:
"To be quite frank with you all, I have come to you to see for myself that you're all still alive."
That was a transfer of all your knowledge, memories, emotions, and a lot more than that, into my mind."
"Don't worry- with this stuff you don't have to answer, but if you do, you won't be able to lie."
She's awakened, and her power is growing...There is no turning back from here.
Summary: Lily and her friends journey through life's ups and downs during their years at Hogwarts. Though they go their separate ways, they all take one message to heart- friendship never dies.
Summary: Who would have thought that a sleepless night would spawn an adventure that includes Dark magic, giants, Diagon Alley, secret societies, and ancient prophecies? Certainly not Sirius Black.
