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.
Oh, I hate Layla. *gets out sniper and points the usual spot at Nikeia* Hey Layla! Go stand in front of her!
Anyway. I knew someone nuts would have to try and jack James. 'Lily isn't worthy, she just takes him after all the years and he accepts it?' It happened in some other fanfic I read, and it was a really good plot twist, though that other character happened to be actually someone. Anyway, I also happen to enjoy THIS fanfic a lot better than the other. So on second thought....*snipes Nikeia and huggles Layla* Thanks for being a nut-job, rude to your friends, and adding spice to the story! I hope you get slapped! *hugs*
Haha, love the writing
Kayla, unlike Nikeia *snipes*, I do like. Probably because I've got a friend named Kayla.
Loved it. As usual ^-^
Haha, and by the way, I revived Nikeia. When she's with Sirius, I've got my sniper aiming at her, but this chapter she was quite without him. So I revived her ^-^ *snipes Layla* Much better.
Hugs for a great story!
*snipes Layla* SCREW WHAT I SAID ABOUT HUGGING YOU! *stomps on face*
DAMN IT! LOVE IT! NOW FUCKING GET ON TO THE NEXT CHAPTER!!
Sorry for the quick spell of rudeness...
I agree with Claire. On it all.
*snipes Layla, huggles Nikeia* Did I mention that before? Haha.
Yay! Hugs and kisses and that's NOT something you say to your professor (Slughorn) though McGonagall isn't too great either. Drat! Showers...
It was hard acting jolly when he was in a bit of a nark, but George Weasley pulled it off...Without a date for Fred and Angelina's engagement party, George asks Alicia Spinnet and sees his old mate in a new light.
So, I know I say this a lot, but I never really thought of...
George as having a pissy side. I guess he can't be happy all of the time. I suppose if I ever thought of these people individually, thought through the stereotypes I put on them, and THEN think it over, I could probably give them another side, but I like discovering it through you much better.
I've always been a George/Alicia-Fred/Angelina supporter, and that they wind up together surprises me less than it should, maybe because I always wished they would. So, I'm very glad that you kept with that. This was well-written and sweet, like always, and of course, I'm always a sucker for romances you write.
Author's Response: George's snarky side shows more in For Bitter or for Worse, because losing your twin brother would make any man bitter. Thank you for liking this version. I wish Fred could have lived so it wouldn't have to be AU.
Summary: What caused Lily to loathe James and James to loathe Lily? How did they come to fall in love? What bumps and bruises did they acquire along the way? From hexing to comforting, this is the way it all started. Endure dangers and hardships, perplexity and mind games, and matters of the heart.
