Excerpt from Chapter 13:

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."

Summary: "As some great nobody once said, ignorance is bliss. And it was, because Sirius Black had enough troubles, thank-you-very-much."
Existence is dairy products and skimming the newspaper. And Sirius needs a job. Life in the summer of 1979.
Summary: Harry gets given a shoebox of Lily's junk. To him half of it should go straight in the bin because it means nothing to him, but had it meant anything to Lily?
Summary: It is the most curious of all sensations when you realize that something you once despised has been transformed into something you love, simply because one person or one experience was able to change its meaning. Starring Sirius Black and the Marauders.
Summary: Lily Evans can’t help but have noticed something isn’t quite right. The inseparable Gryffindor boys aren’t speaking to one another, and Remus Lupin seems particularly withdrawn and upset. Figuring she should do something, Lily resolves to speak with Remus, but what should she say?
Summary: Her spine curled against the base of the tree, she watched the bird perched on a branch above her head carefully. Its bright yellow feathers seemed to glow slightly in the dark, its small beak opening and closing in endless chatter.
“Silencio,” she whispered, aiming her wand at the little creature. The bird’s twitters quieted, its beak parting in silence now. She needed the thing muted for the next step, the more important one, otherwise neighbors may come intrude. And that was the last thing she wanted.
Summary: The Marauders are in third year Muggle Studies, with their latest class project sneaking up on them: ballroom. "Who cares?" they think, "Hardly any Muggles even dance; they don't even like it that much. Why should we have to deal with it?" Professor Richardt has other ideas.
I recently read back through this and cringed at how poorly written it was. I'm going to finish the sequel, and then this story is getting completely revamped. Thanks to all who put up with the poor writing and complimented it!
Summary: Fate. It was the thing that allowed Remus Lupin to become who is he was. A filthy half-breed. A monster. A werewolf. But fate enters Remus' life once again in the form of two trouble-making boys, the only people who can show Remus what it is like not to fear the moon.
Summary: James and the Marauders are planning their biggest and boldest stunt to date. Their target... Professor Dumbledore. Lily Evans suspects that they are up to something, but is not sure what. Will the Marauders succeed or will Lily be able to foil their plans?
Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
