Her own life is marked by struggle: her mother's mysterious mental disturbance; her friends' troubles, which she feels bound to ameliorate; and the looming responsibilities she faces as sole heir to Connghaill Keep. This book, the first in a series, records her last carefree summer and her first year at Hogwarts. The series itself, titled "Before the Beginning", follows Minerva through her formative years,from 1936 through 1945, the end of both the Muggle war and Grindelwald's freedom, and the rise of a new Dark Lord.
The milieu, the protagonist and most of the characters belong to Jo Rowling. The plot is my own.
Thanks to my most excellent Scots, Brit-picking, and history-savvy beta, Ewan Munro. I owe him much more than thanks. Here's to you, Ewan! Most patient beta a girl ever had.

I’m going to let her go. I’m going to let her be her own person, without me around. Without me around to bother her anymore.

I'd like to think we'll break away.

Summary: "Remus Lupin thinks his life would be easier if James didn't smile so much."
James Potter's smile has been getting Remus into a lot of trouble recently. And, strangely, Lily Evans is usually involved in someway. A short, sweet romance about how Lily and James really got together, told in five chapters from Remus' point of view.
Summary: Lily Evans has problems. She sleepwalks, (and always ends up in strange places) she is disorganised, flunking Arithmancy, and, to her dismay, was made Head Girl. There is also the problem of James Potter, who refuses to stop asking her out. Will she ever pull herself together enough to give him a chance?
