Summary: Sirius Black is dead, but a memory of him still remains. Rummaging through Padfoot's old possessions, Remus finds a bit of the past in a diary. Sort of a Tom Riddle's diary experience with a 16yr old Sirius Black.

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.

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: “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.
