Name: Lilah-Grace Chaplin, but you can call me Lils..
Age: Old enough & wise enough not to put my real age!
Sex: Yes, please!
Nationality: British & proud! Don't we just produce the BEST literature (plug for HP there me thinks!)
Favourite Harry Potter: Every time there is a new one released, that becomes my favourite, so atm it's HBP, but I'm sure come the arrival of DH, that will become my favourite! CoS is the HP I like the least, not sure why..
x__My James/Lily Philosophy__x
This song by Maroon 5 really reminded me of James & Lily's relationship while they were still at Hogwarts, before she took the plunge and agreed to go out with him, from James' POV..
You build me up
You knock me down
Provoke a smile
And make me frown
You are the queen of runaround
You know itís true
You chew me up
And spit me out
Enjoy the taste
I leave in your mouth
You look at me
I look at you
Neither of us know what to do
There may not
Be another way to your heart
So I guess Iíd better find a new way in
I shiver when I hear your name
Think about you but itís not the same
I wonít be satisfied Iím under your skin
Immobilized by the thought of you
Paralyzed by the sight of you
Hypnotized by the words you say
Not true but I believe anyway
So come to bed itís getting late
Thereís no more time for us to waste
Remember how my body tastes
You feel your heart begin to race
I love James Potter, I think he's probably the ideal man in many respects.. I'm a sucker for a prankster with a cheeky grin!
Harbouring a secret adoration for Ron Weasely, don't tell Hermione!!
Cannot stand mis-spellers, bad grammar/syntax, slow updaters!
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.
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.
30 July 07: Chapter 15 up and runnin'!! Eventually, 16 forward will post. Thanks you guys - and yay Deathly Hallows! No Spoilers, but definite cannon!!!!!
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? Well, if this ever bothered or troubled you in the slightest, look no further! 'The Princess and Prat' picks up around the time of the Pensieve Scene in book 5...
Read "The Princess & the Prat" to find out how it all began!!! Also posted on HPFF.com, with over 1110 reviews.
Summary: Lily Evans loathes James Potter. She loathes him with a passion everyone in Hogwarts knows about. But during her 7th year, Lily begins to ask herself, is it loathing, or is it something else? Read as feelings and the lives of Lily, James, and their friends unfold.
