As the world around them darkens, Lily, James and the Marauders struggle to find reasons to live - friendships, love, and the future.
Now a series of one-shots!
Summary: We were children once. Young, innocent, carefree. Unhindered by the trials of life.
We were friends once. Our lives filled with such joy and happiness we were untouchable.
We were ordinary people, looking to a bright future. But the ordinary, became the extraordinary, and with one small swish of a wand, we were so much more.
Summary: We knew, though she’d not said a word, that even the best of love must die, and had been savagely undone. - W.B. Yeats
Summary: It's year four at Hogwarts for the Marauders and James Potter has a full agenda. Between keeping up with the rigorous coursework as OWLs draw nearer, studying to become an Animagus along with his best friends, and trying to catch the eye of Lily Evans, it's shaping up to be the busiest year ever.
Summary: Its the school year after their O.W.Ls and the Marauders are eager to start their N.E.W.Ts. But not all is well. Lord Voldermort and his supporters wreak havoc in the Wizarding World outisde of Hogwarts. It seems there is no place safe, except Hogwarts.
This is the year when the Marauders must turn their attitudes around. This is the year where they realise what is important in life - not pranks and wreaking havoc, but the bonds of friendship and love.
The trouble is, these bonds can be unravelled...
...This is The Turning Point.
Summary: This is a oneshot capturing the friendship between Severus Snape and Lily Evans a year before the dreaded "Mudblood" incident at Hogwarts. Set in August 1974, Severus and Lily are spending some time together in their favourite spot - a secluded field next to the park in which they first met - but little are they to know that this will be their final summer together as friends...
Summary: I cannot see their bodies, buried beneath the ruins of their life together, but I know they are there. I can imagine their green and hazel eyes, staring into the dark emptiness. It is all I can do to stay upright, filled with equal parts rage and grief as I gaze unseeing at the heartbreaking scene.
How did it come to this?
Summary: Lily is usually impervious to the Marauders' teasing, but something has sent her running. Her friends don't know what's wrong, and Severus sure isn't about to ask James Potter. But Lily seems to be especially sensitive about this particular subject...
Summary: Genesis Cavanaugh, a very outspoken and (let’s face it) slightly bonkers seventh year student is about to have her whole world flipped upside down. In the seventeen years she’s been alive, there have been three main things she held to be true. 1. Lily Evans would always just be her too-perky-in-the-mornings roommate that her best mate, James Potter, had a thing for. 2. She would never need anyone in her life who wasn’t already there. 3. Above all else, she believed in a purely platonic relationship between herself and a certain mischievous Marauder. It just might take all year, but she’s got to learn sometime that truth doesn’t always prevail in the ever-changing world of Hogwarts. Hell, even the staircases like to move now and again.
Summary: When Madeline Black begins Hogwarts, she is torn brutally away from the family she loves. However, events are about to unfold that make her question who she really is, and the very nature of family.
Summary: First year of Hogwarts for Marauders. On top of discovering that one of their number is a werewolf there are also many cases of people falling into comas from which they cannot be awakened. The Marauders are convinced that Snape is somehow behind this and, with little regard to the school rules, they set out to catch him.
What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet
– William Shakespeare
But for Lily and James Potter, it wasn't that simple.
Summary: Lily and James Potter have recently learned that they are expecting their first bundle of joy. Despite the threat that hangs over their world, they each have their own desires for what their offspring will be.
(This is a one-shot in honor of all the parents out there who would lay down their lives for their children. Thank you!)
Night falls, and four people are out to observe the full moon: Severus Snape, heartbroken over his loss of Lily Evans, Sirius Black, keen to take advantage of his enemy's despair, James Potter, rushing to rescue his hated opponent from his best friend - Remus Lupin, confined to the Whomping Willow - and Lily Evans herself, seeking solitude after her argument with her ex-friend in the corridor. But instead of solitude and comfort in the Hogwarts grounds, she finds out some things she wasn't supposed to know....Severus Snape is lured inside the knothole, Sirius Black crows over his triumph, James Potter rescues his foe, Remus Lupin, werewolf, nearly destroys any future for his human side - and Lily Evans weeps in the shadow of the beech tree, for too many reasons to count..... A more eventful moon than any of them wanted.
Summary: When Marty Price entered the lives of the Marauders, they never expected her to come to mean so much to them. Their last years at Hogwarts were idealistic and beautiful. But a few years in the harsh outside world soon forces them to change. When faced with so much, it is unsurprising that they are tired and lonely and almost broken. Even optimists like Marty struggle to remain true to themselves - so what hope do the rest of them have when she leaves on a vital secret mission? Especially when everything else, if possible, begins crumble even further ...
