Name: Keira (pronounced ke-ra)
Hair: red/brown (often refered to as auburn)
Favorite Books: Well, Harry Potter, of courseÖ other than that I read, like, teen romance and stuff like thatÖ
Likes: reading, writing, listening to music, hanging out with friends, sticking my head out car windows and telling ugly guys theyíre hot, pretending that Iím on Oprah for being in a Harry Potter movie, eating animal crackers, and just being a kool personÖ. (I know I am as modest as James Potter)
Dislikes: people that tell me how I feel, people that say theyíre better than me (or anyone else), people that say that having red hair is weird (ITíS KOOL!), and people that say Iím weird for reading Harry Potter fanfics (they just donít understand! *tears*)
Television: I watch One Tree Hill, CSI: NY, Gilmore Girls, Americaís Next Top Model, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance?, Dancing With the Stars, the Class, CSI: all of them, Friends, Shark, Numb3rs, Cold Case, and Without a Trace.
Movies: The HP movies... Dirty Dancing, Grease, Center Stage, the Notebook, Mean Girls, Grease, Never Been Kissed, How to Deal, 10 things I hate about you, etc. etc.
Music: KT Tunstall, Anna Nalick, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hinder, All-American Rejects, Fall Out Boy, JoJo, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, etc etc.
Favorite Characters: Lily, Luna, James, Hermione, Ginny, Sirius, Ron, Harry, Dumbledore, Malfoy (just because he's hot)
Harry/Ginny- thatís just so perfect, he was her childhood crush, and then they end up together...
Lily/James- just because they seem so perfect together, that they are polar opposites, just shows how much passion they haveÖ and you canít yell at someone as much as Lily yells at James without having passionÖ
Ron/Hermione- thatís just really obviousÖ.
Lupin/Tonks- I donít know why, it just seems right, donít you think?
Favorite HP book: HBP, because JKR put what every teenager goes through and spun it to match the drama in her world. Itís all teenage romance-y and dramatic, and heart felt, and, I just LOVE it, so get off my case!
FanFic annoyance: 1) when people mess up Dumbledore dialogue. I hate it when he sounds like a person that doesn't sound right. He talks very slowly and wisely, I don't think that Dumbledore is the kind of person that would ramble on and on, and I hate it when authors make him sound that way. 2) when Lily falls in love too quickly. In some stories, it's like all of a sudden OMGosh! I love him! I always have! Maybe that's just me, but I think that love is too complex to just wake up one day and be like "WOW! I'm in love!" It just doesn't sound right to me. 3) when people make Lily short. I don't really remember what the description was in the books, but in the movie, when Harry looked into the mirror of Erised, I don't think that Lily looked short. Maybe that's just because I can't remember the book description and I am totally going against the facts placed down by JKR, or maybe it's because I'm tall, but I just feel weird when people say that Lily is short. 4) just plain corny stuff. I hate stories that sound corny. Sometimes I read them anyway, because I like the story line, but those are the stories that I don't leave reviews to.

Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my
evil and malicious
extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I
make a fool out of myself at every opportunity
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the
also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot?
Of course not
Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say.
I have no idea how it happens
It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you
Read this and I’ll love you!

James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
