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.
On the 'oddities and coincidences' section of this site (I almost said of Mugglenet, wondered if that'd be rude on a different site, and remembered this WAS Muggenet) it states that. The true Marauders end in S and the one that doesn't--Peter--is a traitor. A RAT. Sorry couldn't resist.
Fantastic writing! As always.
Not necessarily; if he didn't get to it, he didn't get to it. Oh well.
Anyways, wonderful wonderful! Okay, I'm going to shut up now and read! :P
Anyways. Love. Hearts and hugs. Miss Logan and acceptance (sorry, Facebook). Anyway. *cries*
Oh, and by the way, I'd just like to say that I use anyway too much too. Relate-able. If you look back over my comments you'll find it's true. ;D
Fabulous writing, keep going ;D
Damn it Sev! I love you
Yes, I love Sev. Somehow I overlooked that evil crap and the blah. Somehow, I loved him for becoming good even when I hated him for most of the series. Somehow, I love him and hate Kreacher when there's plausible reason to love Kreacher (See: My friend Ruby). I love Sevvy! *huggles Snape*
And I think James is going to go get Lily to exist with some life in her!
Fluffy ENOUGH! No, actually, I was thinking along the lines of--but no, no, I won't get into that....How inappropriate, that wouldn't rate the story correctly ^-^
Author's Response: Oh dear me.... ;D
GASP! IT IS!? *hurries to dictionary.com*
1. a chattering or flighty, light-headed person.
2. Archaic. a gossip.
n. A silly, scatterbrained, or garrulous person.
Oh, you flibbertigibbet! Sorry.
Anyways, yesh, I LOVE Exploding Snap
I love it! Moldy-shorts. Haha.
Also, why on EARTH is Voldy at Hogwarts? You'd think--but ah, story-ruiner, isn't it, mate?
HA! I'll be a Death Eater if I get a nifty cape! *slaps* I will NEVER repeat the word 'nifty'. Ignoring that gruesome display of horror....
Also! Sectumsempra. Not was I was thinking but nevermind that was in the fifth book, the weird flame thingy that knocked out Hermione at the Ministry! But that was because I mixing the curse with the PURPLE paste and the sleeping potion. That's a l ot to get wrong, but I managed it. Wow I'm stupid. But I know it
LAlala. I love this story ^-^
HA! I love SAm!!!
NO DON'T BEHEAD SNAPE I LOVE SEV!
Anyways, I'm thinking that, though usually I love love-struck Sirius in stories, and wish I was the girl, I'm thinking..not so much. Nikeia needs to WAKE UP! And she better next chapter. Also, Sirius...I realized after James almost said, "A girl in a closet," That I liked that Sirius BETTER! I would hate to be one of the used-girls, but Sirius, come on, needs to get a damned girl in a damned closet!
AN.Y.WAY.! Hey hey. Like I said. Nikeia better wake up, my amazing writer dearest.
Author's Response: *starts cracking up* Oh my... your numerous reviews are MUCH too funny. :-D
Yay! I love Sirius like a Popsicle! That was stupid. :P Ignoring that...Are those really true? And it WAS cliche I adored it! I'll remember that...though hopefully...My nose won't itch. And I thought it meant someone was thinking about you?
What?! I almost had a stroke. Why on EARTH isn't Remus with Josey? I figured them a better couple than Sirius and darling Nikeia (who by the way did NOT wake up as I demanded...)! My god, dearest and most fantabulous writer!
And, I just read your Author's Note, I see why Josey and Remus aren't together. And I know it's cliche but most stories are like that, I already said I disliked Sirius and Nikeia, I wish Sirius had some other chick in a closet. I understand why they aren't together; I forgive you now that I've read it *huggles*
And also, I loved the great minds/fools thing that I told it to my brother XD I only said the two quotes though ^-^ He's not obsessed like moi.
BUT I HATE HER!!!! *growls and breathes heavily through my mouth, applying chapstick harshly as my lips dry through my breath* DAMN IT DAMN IT DAMN IT I HATE SIRIA! UGH! DAMN IT!
BUT I HATE NIKEIA! *snipes* GOD DAMN IT! STUPID NIKEIA!
I loved the story even if I *glances angrily at Nikeia* disagree. On the finer details, at the very least.
DAMN IT I THOUGHT I SNIPED THAT CHICK!
Anyways. In freaking love with this story. Why else would I have skipped it the first time seeing 50 chapters? why did I feel guilt and return? Why am I still reading? DAMN IT because I love it!
Wool socks ARE nice. And who doesn't wonder? Someone not sane, I suppose.
Great as always ;D
I don't mind it was short. Did I mention I want her sniped? I expected it to be long. But it wasn't, actually. And finally they know it was Sectumsempra! And I'm not crying, not a tear or a thought of one, not the slightest of sadness. Nikeia looks, in my mind, like...I can't describe. Big-boned reminds HP lovers of giants, which she most certainly is not, but...Ugh. Anyway, I despise her. As Lily's friend, I liked her and loved her name and loved Josey but hated her name....Anyway. I despise Nikeia.
However, I do care about Josey. *huggles Josey*
Loved the writing, hated the Nikeia :P
