Wait for the guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stay awake just to watch you sleep.
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world in your sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends.
Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares, and how lucky he is to have you.
Wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, "...that's her."
-A Chain Email
Isn't it ironic?
We ignore who adores us,
Adore who ignores us,
Love who hurts us, and
Hurt who loves us.
“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love,
Listens but doesn’t believe,
And leaves before she is left.”
Some say holding on is what makes you strong,
But sometimes is takes more strength to just
"Imperfection is beauty,
Madness is genius,
And it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous
Than absolutely boring."
Between laughing for no reason,
And making fun of each other...
I fell in love with you.
If you can’t get someone out of your head,
Maybe they’re supposed to be there.
Someone will walk into your life.
And you will realize why it never worked out
With anyone else.
You’ll never know
How strong you are
Until being strong
Is the only choice you have.
Just when you think things can’t get any worse,
I’ve learned life is like an hour glass,
And when things hit rock bottom,
You just have to wait for it to be turned around again.
Just because she comes off strong
Doesn’t mean she didn’t fall asleep crying
And even though she acts like everything’s fine
She’s really good at lying.
In the end,
Everything will be okay.
And if it’s not,
It’s not the end.
Sometimes you just need to be
With the person who makes you smile
Even if it means waiting.
Fav. Books: Harry Potter series (duh!), Sarah Dessen books, anything Jane Austen.
Other Random Info: I LOVE anything to do with Harry Potter. I'm on my school's freshmen track team as a sprinter, reading almost anything, and writing. My stuff is posted on Unknowableroom.org, but I come to Mugglenet to read :) I love NHL hockey (PITTSBURGH PENGUINS!!!), Barack Obama, and I'm crazy about music--just not the poppy stuff. Give me some Nirvana and Foo Fighters and I'm in a happy place.
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."
After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...
"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"

James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?

*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.
Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
Summary: 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.
Summary: “Hell -- Oomph! Ouch. Sorry, Sirius decided it’d be fun to trip me.”
“I did not!”
“Oh don’t deny it Sirius, I saw you too. Hello there! You’re here to read, aren’t you? Isn’t that great Remus? Remus?”
“Wha – Oh yes, lovely… So sorry, love, but what are you talking about?”
“You’d think being a werewolf, you could hear twice as good as the normal wizard.”
“Anna! Keep it down!”
“But why, Remus? Everyone’s going to find out once they read Fuzzy Elfin Dilemmas, and then, why would you care?”
“You three are completely ignoring the company. How rude. Don’t mind them, they’ve got the manners of a teaspoon, I tell you.”
The other three sigh as one at Sirius.
“You’ll really like this story. It’s better than my daddy’s, but shhhh, don’t tell him I said that.”
“It’s about a werewolf community, us four and Time-Turners.”
“That hardly says anything at all, you two!”
“We’re sent on a mission of spying on a community I already knew well. Yes, I am a werewolf –“
“Harmless though, I tell you!”
“Those two have a project through the Department of Mysteries –“
“It’s great fun working there.”
“Nat, enough. We’re supposed to figure out how to finish the Time-Turners. Unofficially of course.”
“We’ve got to go…Happy reading!”
This is a story written by Mistletoe (Kat) and myself using our OC's (Natalie Carmen and Anna Boothe), Remus and Sirius. These four are an unlikely group for a mission, but that's indeed what happens. Sent on a whirlwind journey by the Order of the Phoenix and uncomfortable with each other, they're a little lost in the forests of Wales. Where exactly do werewolves and Time-Turners come into the mix? It involves mystery and intrigue, some adventure and fears, a smidgen of flirting and quite a bit of silliness.
Summary: Book Two in the 'Lily' series, Nuttier Than A Fruitcake, portrays Lily's fifth year at Hogwarts, a time filled with hormones, confusion, and of course, run ins with the ever obnoxious, James Potter.

Even Harry wondered how in the world the obvious loathing Lily felt for James could have turned into a marriage. How could they have loved each other?

"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”
“No,” Sirius said simply.
“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”
