I've deleted my old (and very lame) profile, and I've been staring at this blank space for a while wondering what I should write...
Well, I got into the Harry Potter series after Chamber of Secrets came out, and I've loved it ever since -- except for the movies; I've only liked the first two movies. I've also recently fallen in love with Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, a vampire romance book with the god-like Edward Cullen. ::drool::
I absolutely love WizardRock. My favourite WRock bands are The Remus Lupins, The Whomping Willows, Harry and the Potters, Ministry of Magic, Talons and Tea Leaves, Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls, The Weasel King, and The Moaning Myrtles, just to name a few! My favourite muggle bands would definitely have to be Saving Jane, because their lyrics are completely empowering and the beats are ridiculously awesome, and James Blunt.
Apart from the HP series and Twilight, I'm currently reading The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie when it comes out. I also loved Impulse by Ellen Hopkins, which was the tale of three teens who had all attempted suicide. It's a really touching story. A Great and Terrible Beauty (Libba Bray) is also really fantastic, as well as The Triskelia Trilogy (Carrie Mac), and I can't wait for the third books in both trilogies.
My Harry Potter friends are the world to me; I don't know how I'd survive without them::huggles:: I also love MuggleCast and PotterCast, two amazing Harry Potter podcasts! Then, for all you WRock fans, check out the Podcast of Awesome, which is a podcast completely devoted to WizardRock. It's pretty much one of the greatest things ever.
Oh, yeah: I'm a high school junior from Canada, and I also play the flute and piano. I've completed my grade 8 piano exam, and I'm currently working on learning My Heart Will Go On. If you don't know what movie that comes from, you need to get out more. (And coming from me, the Queen of Antisocial, that is definitely saying something.)
Summary: Lily discovers there is more to Remus Lupin than she thought, and more to James as well. Will love conquer her hate for James? Can one summer of letters change some one completely? Or will it be to late...
From Lily's POV

Chapter 4 submitted!
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
Summary: This is not your typical love story. It begins in the summer before James' and Lily's seventh year. Lily gets a letter from Remus about Dumbledore's surprising choice for Head Boy. Is Lily happy about this choice? Will James finally win Lily over in the last year that he has left? Read to find out more!
Last chapter in queue!!!
Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.
Summary: James returns to Hogwarts, this time as a Professor. He meets and falls in love with a sixth year student, Lily Evans.
