Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
Thankyou for giving Peter some character! Every other fic he's in he's just there u know? This is me fav fic cant wait for the next chapter! Oo are James and Lily going to talk about her kidnapping soon like Dumbledore told her to?? That'd be good. Keep writing cuz i'm addicted!!!
Author's Response: You\'re welcome! I\'m glad you like the fic so much :) As for James and Lily talking -- they are going to talk. It\'s more going to be James talking about what was going on while Lily was kidnapped, but Lily will say a few things, too!
This is me screaming at you to review--
Please please PLEASE update ASAP!!! I'm addicted to this fic!! Your writing is awesome and i just got done re reading it.
I cant wait for the next chapter! :D
just a suggestion- have the other Marauders, Alice and Julie in the story more. It feels like they're being over shadowed by Emma. Other than that great work
Author's Response: An update isn't far off at all, I promise; in fact, I'm hoping to update within the next week. I'm glad you like the story so much! The other characters have been a bit neglected lately, I know, but don't worry -- they're plotlines concerning them that have yet to play out! :)
...and at the end of every night, I’ll kiss you like that.”
I love that! Wow the tension is really building! Another fantastic chapter in this fantastic story. Keep 'em coming.
Author's Response: I loved writing that paragraph -- and the whole interaction between Lily and James in this chapter. I'm glad you enjoyed it, too :) Thanks for the review! I will try and update quickly.
This chapter was absolutely worth the wait. You put detail and suspense into an already exciting chapter.
A great story that keeps getting better.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! It's good to know you thought it worth the wait : )
wooaaaah woooah woooaaah. what?! ted? a deatheater? oho the plot thickens indeed. im just wondering how the next chapter can have an even bigger cliffhanger
Author's Response: The plot certainly does thicken! How can the next chapter have a bigger cliffhanger? Oh, you'll see. . . . Thanks for the review.
Arrgh! Ok that chapter made me sooo mad. Lily's being stupid. Emma's being stupid. Sirius is being stupid. They're all dumb. Poor James. Don't tell me Lily leaves Hogwarts! Because that would just suck. Really nice job though now i can't wait for more!!!! Post soon!!!
Author's Response: The next chapter is already in queue! Everyone is acting a little crazy in this chapter, and most of them will make up for it, don't worry ;) Thanks for the review!
woah! shocker! but i don't get why he looks like he just now escaped and then wound up at the cemetery. i hope this will be explained in the next chapter. great story please write the next chapter fast!
Author's Response: It will definitely be explained. Ted has a great deal of explaining to do, in fact. I will try and get the next chapter up soon! Thanks very much for the review.
I loved it!
Sirius and Emma, the way James proposed to Lily, it was great.
I can't wait for the epilogue!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you liked how it all played out :)
Wow. Another excellent chapter on your part. The suspense is killing me! It seems as though they can't possibly get out of this pickle. So write another chapter, quick!
Author's Response: The mods have already accepted the next chapter; they told me they're having a little trouble making it visible, though. Hopefully that means it'll be posted any minute! :) Thanks for the review; I'm glad you liked this chapter.
Holy cow!! That truely was the cliffhanger you've been promising. I always had a bad feeling about Ted! Really great plot twist, though. Now I'm wondering what will happen with Emma. Did Ted convince her to join the dark side? Well, now that I've reviewed, you can update nice and fast :D
Author's Response: I will try and update nice and fast -- thanks for reviewing! I'm glad you thought the cliffhanger lived up to what I promised and that you enjoyed the twist. As for Emma, well, she has an important part yet to play, but that's all I can say without giving anything away ;)
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!
O *tear tear sniffle sniffle*! Marvelous story kudos to you!!!
Ooo gettin' steamy hahaha. "Looking thoroughly snogged" that one cracked me up! Love the story it's being added to me faves!! :D
Ok in almost all the fics I've read about the Marauders this happens- Snape discovers Remis is a werewolf, Sirius leads him to Remus, and James saves him. But when is this mentioned in the actually Harry Potter books? Is it ever mentioned? As the author could you please help me out here??
O that I love you moment was a tear jerker! So sweet!
Summary: “I’m willing to die for this war but I’m not willing to sacrifice my life for it! And maybe you don’t understand, but it’s not the same thing, James; it’s not the same thing!”
In the middle of the first war against Voldemort, James and Lily Potter's world is crumbling in around them. Will their marriage crumble as well? *one-shot*
Aww I was like in tears by the end of that one! That was great it shows that LIly and James weren'yt just some perfect couples. Like all couples who truley love eachother they have their fights. Great work on the dialogue and story. haha nice ending too ;)
Author's Response: Evoking emotion is always something I strive for in my stories -- it\'s good to know I succeeded with this one! Thanks very much for the review.
Summary: It is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.
James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.
The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.
Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.
This is a Marauder tale.
This is a story of what made them special.
This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!
3. She clicks on her mouse and swipes her wand;
Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
I really really hope you finish this story. The characterization is brilliant. The Marauders are hard to capture, but I definitely think you've succeeded. Plus, your OCs do not blend into the background, as they do in so many fics. Pleeeeease continue this wonderul story!
Author's Response: I will continue. It was my first ever story on MNFF and I still love it, but I'm trying to finish other things first. Thanks for your patience. ~Carole~
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together—until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
I couldn't help but think of Nirvana's song "Stay Away" when i read Lucius's quote about paranoia. Although in the song it goes "Just because you're paranoid don't mean they're not after you." I wondered if this was intentional hehe
Author's Response: It'd be interesting to google how many ways that saying's been used, but my mind's stuffed with enough useless trivia as it is, heehee.
