Hi, I'm fourteen (gonna be 15 in January, folks!) and I just love Harry Potter. Deathly Hallows was one of the most amazing books I've ever read, and the whole Potter series was definitely my favorite of all time (never read Lord of the Rings, and probably never will. I can hear the outcries now).
I don't think I'll be one to write fanfics, but I LOVE reading them. My favorites are James / Lily fics, and Humor fics are my favorite genre, on here, after those.
I am a Quidditch fan, but I also support my baseball team, the SAINT LOUIS CARDINALS, 2006 WORLD CHAMPIONS!
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!"
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
It's Lily’s and the Marauders’ fifth year at Hogwarts. Voldemort is getting stronger, lessons are getting harder and life is getting increasingly more difficult. One thing keeps repeating itself throughout the school year though; the frequent visitors of the Forbidden Forest!
What happens when Lily and her friends accidentally stumble across something in the forest they shouldn’t have?
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: I'm not really sure how or when it happened. I'd say somewhere between when he saved my life (and didn't even mention it!) and our late-night conversation. Or maybe in third year, but I just repressed it. No matter when it happened, something clicked with James Potter, and I felt like a fool. Especially when I learned that he had a girlfriend. Hopefully with stories of a nude Petunia and my charm, he'll see the light.
This will be six chapters.
Summary: So, it’s James and Lily’s last year at Hogwarts.
All the year ahead of them full of spells, arguments, Quidditch, arguments, detention, arguments...But, this time, something is different. James Potter is more determined than ever to win Lily Evans’s heart and she seems to be considering.
Maybe, just maybe, a year of rule-breaking, rule-following and fighting for their lives will liven up the romance at Hogwarts...
A story that’s centred on the (inevitable!) romance of Lily and James but also one that goes into the darker sides of that last seventh year. Prepare yourselves for a little R.A.B. , a few Horcuxes, a dash of lovesick Severus and more than a few brilliant moments between the fights, the laughs, the fluff and the danger!
Warnings for extra funny Sirius and Remus moments (that include a love-potion gone wrong and marriage proposals due to drink) , alarming giggling spells from a character who bears more than a resemblance to our own Loony Lovegood, Quidditch talk from a fun Alice Vance, evil Bellatrix and Narcissa, and Lily and James in the middle of it, falling in love without knowing...
AU warning (not for some horrifying reason as you may assume – like Lily dying or Remus turning into a chicken – but because two of the characters – namely Lucius and Bella – are in Lily and James’ seventh year as well when we know from canon that they're older! Just a minor difference but then I really needed some nastiness in the story!)

Summary: Norah Kelley was the one James had always seen himself with. They had been together forever and he loved her. Lily Evans, on the other hand, was the one girl he truly loathed.
But in fifth year, with a changing outlook on life and problems finally surfacing at home, James and Lily began to a friendship. Both known for hating each other, they agreed to keep their friendship quiet.

However, rumors of Severus’ doings are starting to concern Lily, as she starts to notice James Potter, a Quidditch star with unkempt hair and a knack for trouble. Lily’s internal battle is heating up, as she prepares to start her fifth year at Hogwarts.
(Character Death and Sexual Situations Warnings are for later chapters.)
UPDATE 01/30: Chapter 2 is FINALLY posted! I hope you all enjoy this one! Chapter 3 is currently being edited, so I don't have any good excerpts to provide for you...however, keep checking here for updates!
Summary: James Potter is determined to make his last year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry unforgettable, one for the history books, but the war with Voldemort weighs heavily on his mind. As he works to help bring about an end to the scourge that has plagued the wizarding world for many years Lily Evans starts to see him for the man he has become instead of the boy he used to be.
Summary: 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.
Summary: James and Lily Potter, the most famous Wizarding couple of all time. How did they end up together? Well, it all begins after the very scene which made their son question their very union...
Join us with a story of loyalty, drama, action, love, Death Eaters, and magic in the truest sense of the word. Begin at the end of Lily and James' fifth year, and finish with the end of their seventh year, and relish the journey they took to get from the former to the latter.
Summary: Lily liked stability and security in her life. As Lily enters into her seventh year at Hogwarts, she’s eager to be surrounded once again by the same friends, students, classes, professors, and rules. Instead she finds her thoughts in disorder and feelings toward a particular Gryffindor student whirling dizzyingly around in her mind. It all started, and where this story begins, at the end of Lily’s sixth year where an unexpected conversation brings to light new information.
Summary: Lily Evans is not happy. Voldemort is gaining power, tensions between herself and Petunia are growing, her bridesmaid dress is pink, and to top it all off, JAMES POTTER is the new Head Boy! Despite such a biased pairing, can the two become a serious couple, or will they, like so many others in such a distrustful time, be ripped asunder?
Summary: There are three sides to every story: yours, mine, and the truth.
Sixth year has finally arrived for the legendary Gryffindor Marauders, Lily Evans, Severus Snape, and Katherine Vance and with it, dozens of new responsibilities. Suddenly they have to juggle NEWT level classes, changing loyalties, and a war that threatens to destroy everything they hold dear. Somehow, in the midst of everything, romance blooms in the most unlikely places.
We all know how the story ends, but how did it begin? What really happened to make Lily fall in love with James?
Every story has a third side, for better or worse. Here is the rest of theirs.
