I'm orginally from New Jersey,USA and currently live in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm 47yrs old, born on December 23rd.
I enjoy writing and art. I enjoy volunteering and walking.
I've been a fan of the Harry Potter series and the movies for the past 7 years.
Summary: A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.
There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!
Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!
It's nice to know that you have friends to help you through the rough times.
Remus Lupin should be very fortunate to have his friends to protect his secret.
Another fine story!
Very nice and cute chapter, Lily and Snape working together in Potions class,while James Potter fumes over not being the one guy t hat Lily wants.
Snape trying out for the Quidditch team??? Okay, even I had to laugh at that. But at least he gave it a shot and he of course was horrible.
Great chapter though...;0)
Remus' 'furry little problem' and the Halloween visit to Hogsmeade. I'm interested to read how one becomes an animagus...Another outstanding chapter!
Now Remus can relax...With friends like that...Nice chapter, now if Peter can get his amigagus in gear...Rats! ;0)
Another great chapter, one in which we learn of the Marauders Map that Harry Potter was so fond of using.
Apparently they used it exclusively for Lupin's benefit. And it went on from there.
I think Snape is both overprotective and a bit prudish about seeing Sirius with Ann.
Nice to see a new chapter up. GReat job, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
Wonderful chapter! All went well at the full moon, with Lupin's pals keeping him company.
And Sirius was too cute in asking Ann to go to Hogsmeade with him on Valentine's Day.
Wait til Snape finds out.....
Another cute chapter. Nice and fuzzy like a favorite warm sweater.
Ooooo! Snape's got agirlfriend! Well almost. Great chapter again and It's nice to see Severus have what James Potter does'nt....Lily Evans.
Cute chapter! Nice that Severus broaght breakfast to Ann for her birthday....
Author's Response: Thanks for all of the great reviews! Glad you are enjoying the story!
Summary: The Marauders. They're the elite group of troublemakers. Meet James, who tries hard to maintain his devil-may-care attitude in the face of true love; Sirius, who is the plotter-in-chief; Remus, the "goody-goody" and prefect of the lot; and Peter, who's not even sure how he got included in the first place.
Follow everyone's favorite miscreants on a whirlwind journey full of laughs, love, and good hexes.
Note: FALL OUT BOY STOLE MY TITLE FROM ME! I HAD IT FIRST! *lawyers appear armed with lawsuits* Those guys can't take a joke, can they? Okay, I don't own it.*
To keep you all updated with my progress, have writer's block currently, but it hardly ever lasts long, and I'm on chapter 30
Thanks to all my lovely reviewers!
Beware of those boys who can ride brooms...Another brilliant chapter.
Lily defends Snape, but yet can't stand him. It was a slow piece, but pretty cool...I'm looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Not only can brooms be used to break into your dormitory, but they also make great blunt weapons! I thought that chapter was slow too, more of filler than anything really important. Thanks for the review!
Cool!!! Great beginning to a great story! The excitement in each of them, the anticipation. Already Sirius is planning to party his brains out, at 11 years old, with his pal James.
Two rebels to be dealt with I'm sure...
Author's Response: Oh yes. The teachers at Hogwarts won\'t know what hit them!
Very cute chapter. All of them in Gryffindor, even Sirius. And Lily's fitting in nicely.
Author's Response: Thank you! I try to satisfy (rhyme not intentional).
Geez! these are 11 year olds and already James is flirting with LilY???
Getting a jump start I guess.
At least Lily has the good sense to turn him down.
As for Lily being a Marauder, it sounds interesting and fun, but I bet she shies away from the pranks, or some of them anyway.
Great chapter, kind of short in my opinion, but it was fun!
Author's Response: I guess James is just getting his hormones pretty darn early! And Lily doesn\'t entirely lose her morals; she only really enjoys pranking when it\'s relatively harmless and the victim did something to her or one of her friends.
Well, nice try Potter!!! I think it's a brilliant idea to have James and Lily's diary entries as a part of the story.
And Sirius should keep his nose out of James' diary.
I know some readers will think the diaries are boring, I think you have the right idea.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you think it\'s the right idea. They\'re absolute torture to write and they take me more than twice as long as normal chapters do, even though they\'re shorter. And James told me to tell you that it\'s a JOURNAL, thank you very much!
Excellent chapter! It seems the first year's coming to an end, and James has'nt gone out with Lily yet.
And now, Snape's in the picture. Oh well, I just ove the plotlines. I'm sure Lupin's 'furry little problem' will pop up soon.
Author's Response: Yup, I couldn\'t keep dear little Sev out, what kind of story would that make? Ha ha--James is so pathetic that it\'s rather funny.
I have no guacamole, but I do have a review...Great! You've mentioned Lupin's mysterious absentism and his battered appearence. I like Lupin, he seems like a kind soul in the story, and the one with a good head on his shoulders.
Shame on James and Sirus for being too nosy. I have no complaints about this chapter, I am quite pleased with it!
Author's Response: Thank you! This chapter is not one of my ultimate favorites, but I was reasonably pleased with it, and I\'m glad you liked it! And Remus is awesome!!
Hmmm, Pringle? Is he a professor or is he like Filch? Just curious.
All the best made plans go ary at some point.
It is kind of weird, to see Snape as Lily, but it was a nice try.
Great chapter, though, can't wait to read the next one!
Author's Response: It was mentioned (in GOF I think) that Apollyon Pringle was the old caretaker, before Filch came. A few other people have pointed that out. I didn\'t mean to cause confusion.
I was about to mention the timing if the marauders finding out about Remus' lycanthropy too, but I figured it was all part of the chapter. As a writero f stories myself, I understand the continuality of a storiy's plotlines. You as the author, have the right to change a timeline ias you see fit. I have no problem with it and it's a brilliant story!
Author's Response: Yeah, it never really said in the books when they find out, only when they finally work out the Animagus thing. It does seem fast, I know, but I can\'t see the other marauders being fooled by some fake story every full moon. They\'re too good of friends.
