Summary: "Albus Dumbledore aimed his wand at the Pensieve’s liquid depths and twitched his arm upwards. Ten ghostly figures slowly emerged from the liquid, their bodies spun out of the translucent matter. The Gryffindor Class of 1978..."
We all know how this tale ends, but how does it begin? Did Lily hate James from Day One? Did James fall head over heels the moment he first laid eyes on Lily? How did Remus feel about the whole thing? Who let Peter slip through the cracks? And what exactly happens when Sirius gets hold of some Time-Release Dungbombs?
The Marauders' years at Hogwarts were marked by internal demons, external tensions, and whispers from the shadows growing steadily louder. By intertwining lives in the midst of danger. By powerful love and a whole lot of laughter. This is their story, a tale of cauldrons and comrades.

Lily knew that James was nothing but trouble. He was rude, conceited, and indifferent to anyone that wasn't in his group of friends. She had known him to be that way for six long years.
But their seventh year comes, and Lily slowly begins to see that he is no longer the boy he was. Now Lily sees herself more clearly, and she isn't sure she likes what she sees.
This is the almost-forgotten story of Lily and James's romance, and what they went through to become the heroes that were Harry Potter's parents.

We all know James and Lily's relationship ended on a Halloween night with two bright green flashes, but how did it begin?
Were they introduced by friends? Did their eyes meet across a crowded room? Did it perhaps start with a small hello? Did they just lay eyes on each other and immediately hate one another?
Or maybe it began with a perfectly timed, destined chance encounter ... a coincidence, as some would say.
Join James and Lily in their Seventh year at Hogwarts as they recollect the times throughout their Hogwarts years that brought them together.
Teensiest bit of AU included, nothing major.
