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.
loved it =)
Author's Response: Glad to hear it!

Summary: James Potter is running out of time to win the heart of Lily Evans. In a last attempt to make her his, he formulates a secret plan.
Will the whole thing blow up in his face? . . . Or will Lily have some secrets of her own?
Warnings: Excessive amounts of romance, jealousy, and PMS.
I'm a'comin with the newest chapter!!
i know your probably busy, but this story is so good, don't forget about it=)
this took a while, but it was worth it. (well kind of, jk) great update =)
but please post the next chapter sooner than you did for this one!!!
pleasee post soon =)
when are you going to update?
your story is soo good.
Author's Response: IM UPDATING TONIGHT!!! WOO!!!! ~SM

it was soo good!
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!)
xxx leighpotter ;)

Author's Response: keep reading and keep telling me what you think! i love new readers! I\'ll post as soon as I can but as I said I\'m afraid it\'ll take some time-but keep checking for updates!!!

Her best friend -- and secret love -- Severus Snape, has been her guide through the first four years of her magical education.

this was really good.
please post soon, since you left a complete good cliffhanger.
i'm happy that you finally updated, i was starting to loose hope that any of my favorites would ever be updated. this is a great fanfic =)
Author's Response: Cliffie\'s are my favorite. =D I\'ll post ASAP. I\'m still writing/revising a portion of Chapter 3, then it\'s gotta be Beta\'ed. With the slow Queue these days, it may be up to a month or so. =/
i like this so far!!
keep up the good work =)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading!
great chapter =)
Author's Response: Thanks!!
Summary: During the Battle of Hogwarts, almost all in the side of the Light fought for love.
And in the middle of the scurry and flurry and before the outright fury of the confrontation, Harry’s two best friends come upon their own piece of the revered word and its many-fold but meekest meaning.Don’t let my artsy summary fool you. This is my one true pairing, pure and simple, and the events that just piled on top of each other leaving Hermione with no other inclination than to finally fling herself to Ron for that Kiss.
~Written as a present for Ginny Weasley Potter. Happy birthday, sis!
good story =)
