It's Harry's first Halloween, but the raging thunderstorm prevents an overly eager Lily from taking him out to trick-or-treat. Instead, she, James, and Sirius spend one of their last carefree moments together.
Summary: The beginning of the end: ten short scenes from October, 1981.
Summary: A disgrace. That's what his mother called him. He'd denounced the pure blood life style, and lost his temper with his father for the final time. This was it. The last straw.
This is the story of the night Sirius Black left home for good and moved in with the Potter's. Enjoy!
Summary: Lily Evans and James Potter agreed on only one thing since they first met: they'll always hate each other. But after five years, James begins to see things, to see her, differently, and wants another chance. But Lily is one stubborn girl. Can he convince her that his feelings are real? Meanwhile, the pair is thrust into many different dangerous and humorous situations with their friends. Will it take a disaster to help Lily believe in true love? Or will a tragedy just push her farther away? How many times does James have to try before he stops messing up? Follows with the information provided by JKR, with some fun along the way.
Summary: Lily-centric. When she was little, she hated her name. It wasn’t quite right, not for her, and although she didn’t know exactly what it was that was missing, she knew that something was missing.
She’d listen with abated breath to the nicknames others gave her, hoping she’d find the answers in them. In all her short life, she’d been called many different things, and she was determined that at least one of them would fit.
Summary: James Potter is a well known prankster, along with all of his friends. He’s constantly in detention, and if he isn’t, he’s thinking up ideas that will probably end up with him and Sirius back in detention. How is it then that one of the most famous pranksters that Hogwarts has ever seen ended up as Head Boy? This is the story of James becoming Head Boy.
Diana has always been different. She can make objects move without touching them. She can command animals without training them. She always seems to know when someone is lying to her. And strange things always seem to happen when she's sad or angry....
But even when the enigmatic Professor Dumbledore comes to tell her that this is all normal for someone like her, there are other things that still set her apart. She has no memory from before age eleven. She hears voices whispering to her when no one is there. And there is something more sinister lurking inside her, something that reminds Dumbledore of another student he had so many years ago....
Diana's birth was no accident. Someone has dark plans for her, and unless she can solve the Riddle of her past she may just become the very thing she strives to destroy.
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!)
