Summary: ‘Do not pity the dead, pity the living, for it is they who must survive.’
by Scott Anderson
Is it lucky to survive in war, or is it better luck to die than to be left behind to pick up the pieces?
In the 1940’s, not one, but two wars reigned in Europe, taking lives and hopes on a daily basis. People lost everything they held dear. And yet they survived. But does it matter to be alive when everything else you know lies in ruins?
Anna Krum survived and lived to see her family grow, although the one person she loved the most had died: her husband. Now, nearly 40 years later, she tells her grandchild what once was…
… and how much she had lost.
Please note that some scenes contain detailed descriptions of traumatic post-war experience, with mentioning of blood. If you can’t stand reading about such moments, please do not read this story. You have been warned…

Summary: “Poets often describe love as an emotion that we can’t control, one that overwhelms logic and common sense.”
It started on a spring day in the library, when they both decided to act on emotions. It ended while watching a sunset in the backyard, when they both decided it was ‘for the best’. And it became fully understood on a stormy night, when they both decided that love wasn’t always logical.
Edit: Nominated for "Best Non-Canon Romance" in the 2008 QSQ Awards

If you're looking for the usual James-loves-Lily-but-Lily-hates-James storyline, then this isn't it. The thing is, Lily doesn't hate James at all, he can just be annoying at the best of times. As she comes to realise why she doesn't hate him, it leads to the famous love we all know about. Set against the backdrop of a warring magical world where nothing is certain, can James and Lily hold onto each other and fight?
UPDATE August 08:
It's FINISHED! Thank you so much to all those who have read and reviewed this story, I have loved your support. i hope there are still people out there who are willing to read it. Keep an eye out for more stories by me!
UPDATE February '08:
I have changed the chapter names of some of the 'Defied' chapters, to make this fit and to make it more plausible, as I see the 'thrice defying' of Voldemort as happening when James and Lily are part of the Order of the Phoenix.
UPDATE 20th September:
I have altered my facts in the chapter 'Once Defied' as I made mistakes in the ages of James and Lily. It didn't matter so much in this chapter but had annoying repercusions for future chapters. It should all now be correct.

‘Love and hate are quite similar when you think about it,’ James said thoughtfully.
‘What do you mean?’ Lily asked.
‘You can’t hate someone for no reason without loving them a little,’ he said.
Lily rolled her eyes. ‘That’s stupid,’ she said.
‘No it’s not. Why do you think guys tease girls they like? Most people use hate to hide the fact that they really love someone.’
Lily didn’t say anything, so James continued. ‘After all, love is really just hate with a smile.’
Lily Evans hated James Potter. She always had, and thought she always would. But people change. Opinions change. Sometimes the line between right and wrong blurs … as well as the line between love and hate.

Like countless other wizards and witches, Lucille Murphy had found herself taking advantage of the fabulous hospitality of Mr Malfoy. Like them, she had gossiped and speculated about his elusive person, revelling in the mysteries surrounding him. And just like everyone else, she had been awed at the sight of his face.
But, unlike others, Lucille was no longer concerned with who he was. Instead, she was rapidly becoming obsessed with what

This one-shot is a companion to
