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.
Woot. I loved it
Remus's daydream about Lily gave me that feeling you get when looking through old stuff, or thinking of life after college (if you're just about to leave college) or any of it. When she said something like, "You'll have your friends, Remus John Lupin. You'll have your friends. And they'll be with you no matter what happens."
Actually, all did. Especially the bits about "one last time..." *sighs sadly and holds back tears* Hm. I seem to be getting more sentimental as time wears on. *sighs again and savors the last chapter*
*is crying too loud to say anything and finally gasps out:* THE END!!! *starts sobbing again*
I love...James! And Lily. I hate Layla still but I love Sirius and HATE Nikeia (with him)
Haha! Sometimes I wonder which I enjoy more; the story or the Author's Notes. I suppose the story--it's longer. :P
That was a pretty good chapter. Detentions are never 'fantastic' you understand, except the one in my dream last night...Ah, but I don't think there's ACTUALLY a censoring charm--never mind, never mind...
I actually didn't think Chelsea knew. I guess that makes sense--it's Mary's sister, isn't it? Hm. Gar I need chap stick.
No I can't, I don't really get it. But great start to what I know will be a fantastic story ;D
I love the little kids too! Hehee
I don't get the layout at ALL but whatever. I'm too caught up in the story!
I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IDIOTS! Why on EARTH would they interrupt a kiss! My goodness! Sorry, anyway, I like writing out author's note too ^-^ You aren't weird....alone. And I say Brit. Guess I'll have to change that. Thanks for A Few Grammar Lessons and a Story :P
LOVE! Sorry. I love: James/Lily fics, fluff, and detailed kissing scenes. All in one like you had is all the better!
Author's Musings! Ha! Love the new title
Haha. I'm not offended, by the way. I don't mind, I probably have insulted America a million times before and I've lived here my whole life and still live here. ^-^ Great story.
That was amazing. And Lily should've let Stacy take him. Aw well. ;D
Author's Response: What!? How could you say that!? Let Stacey have James!? Egad! *laugh* Thanks for the review!
Haha. It was awesome. And I think Snape should say something heart-felt to Lily!!!!! Love
I'm thinking Snape or Sirius and someone.....?
Anyways, I'm reading because I'm dying of curiousity. Of course, your wonderfully detailed pieces that are, needless to say, marvelous, do help in the detailed kissing scenes, Lily/James fics, and fluff
Stupid Stacey! *snipes* Anyways. YAY! James and Lily
