Summary: It's 1959 and Persephone Marcello is in her seventh year at Hogwarts. She's fairly apathetic about the whole matter; the only thing her parents want her to do is marry a rich man while she's still young and have lots of children. But everything around her is changing. She and her sisters are growing older, her friends are falling in love, and she's afraid she might be, too. All of a sudden, nothing seems certain anymore, and Persephone is absolutely terrified.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Every student plans on making their final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry the most memorable one ever. Eight in particular want to make those minutes really count. Except, they each have a different idea of how to go about doing it.
James Potter would like to waltz into Lily Evans’s life and throw it completely off course. Julie McGuire didn’t exactly plan on rescuing Remus Lupin, but now that she has, why not just go with it? Marlene McKinnon should have know what she got herself into when she kissed Sirius Black the first time, but that boy has a way of knocking her senseless. Emmeline Vance had planned to just sit back and watch it all happen, until Roxanna Louchester, her ex-friend, barged in and turned everything upside down.
Suddenly they’ve gone from only wanting the most memorable year, to achieving it. It’s a year of love and lust. It’s a year of tears and fights. It’s a year of finding yourself. It’s a year of learning to lose. It’s a year that none of them are likely to forget.
I think its fantastic!! I love it... for a first fic u did very well... and i completely agree on the part where Emmeline said to Lily :
“You always want to bring out your eyes, Lily. They’re one of the first things people notice.”
Furthermore, I love the chracter of Emmeline so far.... I dun like Roxie... she sounds so rude and evil to the others....
Ohh and I also love the art where James says:
“Evans and I just wanted to remind everyone not abuse their power too much, to pass out the passwords, and to establish a patrol schedule.” He leaned forward and began to pass pieces of parchment and a quill around.
I like that part because he made it sound like u could abuse ur power but not much:D... thats so sounds like him... I always loved james/lily pairing a lot... :P
Haha i agree on Dumbledore's speech.... But u did it well:D.... and again i love this chapter too!!! I liked the part where Em says:
“Sounds like things aren’t so great in paradise.”
I wonder wat Lily wanted to say to Em though.... The professor Temple sounds interesting... cant wait to read more..
I love this chapter!!! Its really well written... I liked the part where you showed us a sneak peek of Peter's character when he and Lily talked.... I also think this chapter is great because it shows about how Lily feels aout the war and everything that is going on around her.... It shows that she cant have just be carefree and enjoy herself when all of this is happening....
But theres one thing that kind of bugging me though... what happened to James??? We dun hear or get to see him in the chapters much.... other than that i think this is brilliant...cant wait to read the next chapter now... and by the way i like the names u gave for each chapters... it sounds unique :D
Yay James is back!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it... hmmm when James asked to dance i thought he still liked her and stuff... but it didnt actualy show much....does he???????? i can see tat Lily is starting to notice him more n more which is good...
You know u might find it weird but i absolutely loved thid lines:
“Why?” James sounded amused. “An old boyfriend?”
She winced. “No. He never got that chance.”
He froze. “Snape?” he whispered.
Lily lowered her head a fraction, dropping her gaze to the floor. “Yes,” she murmured.
I dunno y.... but i think it was fantastic especially when Lily said he never got the chance after James asked her.... furthermore, i had been waiting for a chapter about Lily and James for long.... finally its here!!!!!!!! and ur right i find that this is also my favourite chapter so far too!!! this chapter is well written and it was also good to se it from Lily's point of view... will we be able to see from ?James' point of view??? cant wait for the next chapter.... plz update soon!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: This is the story of the rat, the stag, the werewolf, and the dog. They met by fate and were bound by a secret. Hopes, fears, love, tears, great and small, Marauders all. Their years at Hogwarts will always live on in infamy, although so many people say different things. Here is the frivolous first year of the tale of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.

Remus really needs his friends for support.... i love this chapter !!

Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
I think its perfect:D... i really really love it... The best chapter so far!!!! update sooon ya
Author's Response: Aww thanks so much :) I'm glad you liked it
Summary: First problem: James Potter is Head Boy. Second problem: Why is he acting so different? The James Potter that Lily Evans knows is arrogant and conceited and loves Quidditch and bullying his “inferiors” with an unimaginable passion. This year he’s kind and charming and much more, shall we dare say it…mature. He is also much more distant than he has ever been in all her years at Hogwarts. In her seventh year, Lily finds out that there is much more to James Potter than meets the eye and together they set out on the long and precarious road to each other’s hearts.
finally!! haha yup love it... by the way till when r u going to continue tis!??? u know wat was the most amazing thing?? i just thought of this story yesterday n today its all updated with d moment we hav been waiting for all along :D....cant wait for the next chapter... update soon...
Author's Response: oh that's great that you thought of my story the day before it was updated. haha. and no, this story is not over. right now i'm working on editing chapter 20/beginning to write chapter 21. and then after that there's probably going to be another couple chapters. thanks so much for reviewing! ~julia~
i really like this chapter... furthermore, its kinda different from wat a person imagined how the story would go... good work on that. I think that Lily might talk to Severus or Sirius in the hospital wing or maybe professor dumbledore, himself ( theres a possibility) ...haha could u update it soon... Im really looking forward to read the next chapter...
Author's Response: thanks for reviewing! and it's a possibility...I'll try to update soon =]
I love this chapter!!!! Finally, LIiy told him the truth abt how she felt.... and i do pity Severus though.... I love the part where Sirius, Lily, Remus were critizing Olivia during breakfast :P.... Overall, great job! :D... and thanks for the plate of cyber chocolate chip cookies... plz update soon... cant wait to know what will happen between James and LIly now...
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, Lily did finally tell her feeings to James...things might get interesting in the next couple chapters. ;) The breakfast scene was fun to write too. poor Olivia. No one likes her except James. Again, thanks for reviewing and I'll try to update soon.
I love it... i just hope James breaks up with Olivia soon..... He and Lily should get together soon too.... how many more chapters to go by the way??? plz update soon
Author's Response: Thanks! It'll happen soon enough. ;) Umm...right now I'm in the process of writing chapter 20..and then there will probably still be a few more chapters after that. hopefully i'll finally finish this story. =]
Haha i dont hate you...or James... I mean Lily did ask him to move on to another girl... Furthermore, im sure he was in a depress state so the only thing he could do now is to forget Lily by going out with someone else.... i like this chapter... i hope Lil would finally tell James about how she feels... Update soon!! cant wait to read more
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! We'll see about Lily.. I'll try to update soon. ~Julia~
