Summary: James Potter's life is near perfect. He's Head Boy (Nobody is really sure why, but he's doing a good job), Chaser for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team (and doing a spectacular job there too) and has never been closer to the love of his life (Lily Evans isn't telling him off every second). They may be in a War, but James's life has never looked better. Until the worst possible thing happens. Lily loses her memory, and James is the only one who can help her remember. It may have been a dream come true if he wasn't so responsible. He can't try to make a move when she can't remember why she hates him. Or will he? Think about it, James Potter has never been one for limitations.

Summary: In the Final Battle, we know that Remus and Tonks lost their lives fighting; however, we never saw a death scene for the two of them. We don't know what was going on with them during the battle. We only know that Remus came before Tonks, and then we see that they are both dead. This story is my take on how the power of love can never be ignored, just like Dumbledore always said.

But even in the darkness, and even in the despair, there is still friendship, and love, and hope.
