I'm Kate. I'm just your average 22-year-old girl. I love writing, and I absolutely adore Harry Potter, so you put two and two together, and you get this.
I love the James/Lily genre; it's my favorite because there's so much left to the imagination
I'm also a Harry/Hermione 'shipper' [oh, how I detest that word!], even though it'll never happen, but I've just never been able to picture Ron and Hermione together...it's too weird.
Some things you might be interested in knowing:
1) I will keep a running tally of how my stories are getting along here, once the whole process starts going...so if you want to know, just look.
2) My favorite part of writing is writing emotions. I love creating thoughts and feelings for my characters...fleshing them out, instead of making them all action. I like to think it shows in the finished product.
3) As you will come to notice, I tend to make numbered lists. A lot.
But for now, we all just have to sit and wait for the lovely administrators to validate my submissions...I've been having trouble with that...the whole validation thing. But as they say, patience is a virtue.
Stories So Far
1 - Just Sand and Water - This is intended to be the first part of a mostly James/Lily-centric 'Marauder Era' series of stories...as of right now, it's looking to be fairly long, but I do have the whole thing planned out. Chs 1 [prologue] - 7 are validated. Ch 8 is waiting for validation, as of the moment.
Summary: The Marauders and their friends are just about to begin their sixth year—and what a year it will be; rocky relationships, secret relationships, the never-ending fighting between James Potter and Lily Evans…and that new threat, that new shadow lurking outside the walls of Hogwarts. A new name is rising…one that is beginning to send shivers down the wizard’s spine.
Voldemort is rising, and people are falling.
Summary: Lily Evans has a dark secret that will ultimately destroy her entire world. But only if Voldemort doesn't do it first...
This is the tale of James and Lily's struggle of love and life during the Time of Shadow--Voldemort's First War.
Summary: In Remus Lupin's fifth year at Hogwarts, his devoted friends finally master the complex Animagus spell, beginning the adventures they will remember for the rest of their lives. But Remus must also face prejudice in the rising war, a test of loyalty versus love, and the danger of his dark secret being revealed.
Pet Peeve Disclaimer: Peter is not worthless, Lily does not have three friends who fall for the Marauders, and no one calls Remus "Remy."
Summary: What caused Lily to loathe James and James to loathe Lily? How did they come to fall in love? What bumps and bruises did they acquire along the way? From hexing to comforting, this is the way it all started. Endure dangers and hardships, perplexity and mind games, and matters of the heart.
Summary: Here's the story of awkward situations. The story of a stubborn girl and a determined boy. The story of broom closets, bra straps and declarations of affection. Here's the fairy-tale story of how Lily Evans finally fell for the bullying toerag James Potter. *one-shot*
Summary: Lily thought she was in for a boring summer... but James Potter had other ideas. Love Letters, with a rather bizarre twist.
Summary: *COMPLETED!*What happens when you put a hopelessly "romantic" man-hussy and a girl with a soft spot for bedtime activities (not THOSE activities, silly!) together in a dark bedroom? Well, I don't happen to know either, so I suppose we'll find out together, won't we? Come with me, Tia C. Spencer, on a lovely ride through the countryside... er, lakeside... okay, so we won't actually be riding NEXT to anything, but it will be lovely, I promise you that. How can it not be, with me as your illustrious (and quite possibly mad) companion?
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
Chapter 6 is 40% complete
Summary: In the summer of her sixth year, Lily does something she thinks she will regret for the rest of her life. After losing her parents to a Muggle car accident, loneliness and desperation drive her to see James Potter. Will their encounter remain a stain on her conscience, or will she find out that year that everything happens for a reason?
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
