Summary: Voldemort is after Harry Potter, a boy "...born to those who thrice defied him...". But ever wonder what Lily and James did to defy him thus? This is a story about passion, both love and hatred. Follow James and Lily through their 7th year as they unite as Head Boy and Girl, ultimatly fall in love, and deal with the rising Dark Forces and the feared Dark Lord. Final chapter up!
Beautiful story with a fantastic ending. I was in tears!! I love love loved it!
Summary: Just a sweet Lily/James idea that came to my head while I was brainstorming for my other fic. I'm pretty sure it'll stay a oneshot, but who knows, it depends upon you, the readers! Anyways, Lily is feeling down on New Years Eve, and there is only one guess who is there to make the world seem brighter (despite the Filibuster's No Heat, Wet Start Fireworks!)
Very cute.... another winner!! I loved it!
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
So I'm the first to review this chapter... probably because your story was one that I was checking daily for an update.
As always, it was an absolutely beautiful chapter. I loved loved loved the end of it! The characters are going through such crazy and unrealistic times but you came them come across as very realistic and I think that makes them easier to relate to.
So thank you for update... I loved it and can't wait for the next!
Thank you soo much for updating. This is my absolute favorite lily/james fanfic and I'm really glad that you are continuing it. This story just keeps getting better and I loved the chapter and the new issues you are starting to explore. Fantastic!!! I loved it!! Thank you and I CAN'T wait for the next chapter.
Wow... this was an excellent chapter, or interlude per say. I absolutely love love love your writing and your ability to get your readers so entranced in the story. The ending was awesome too. You'll definitely have me checking daily to see if you've posted!!
I just want you to know that I barely ever review fanfiction. I know that I should, but I don't post stories so I generally don't have an account on the page.... Anyways, thats the not the point. I set up an account with Mugglenet just so that I could review this prologue. I haven't read the rest of the story yet but this prologue was absolutely amazing. I've read a lot of fan fiction, especially lily/james and this was truly very very good. I'm excited to read the rest of the story! Keep up the writing because if its anything like this then you have very special talent. :-)
Summary: Brief glimpses into James' heart as he experiences three of the most crucial moments of his life. One-shot/drabble
So I absolutely love your writing. This was another excellent story (or drabble?). The fact that you can write something like this out of the blue in two hours is really amazing. Keep writing, it's beautiful!
Summary: This is the story of a necklace, a small silver bird on a delicate chain. This is the story of a girl, and her children, and grandchildren, and great grandchildren. This is a story of many moments each linked together like the links of a chain. This is a story.
This is a very intriguing story. I love your writing style. It keeps the story moving at a good pace while also doing a fabulous job of setting the mood of that specific chapter and describing the different settings. I like how you don't preface your chapters with a blatant description of the character and where they are. You have a very subtle approach that's intriguing, like I said before.
So basically, I think this story if very original and fun to read. I hope you stick with it!
Author's Response: I hope I am able to stick with it as well. Writing the little sketches is really enjoyable, especially now that I don't have as much time for writing. I'm really glad that you enjoyed the story, and thanks for all the kind words!
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.
First of all, I just want to say that I'm really enjoying your story so far and look forward to future chapters.
Now as far as the more detailed comments go: I really like how you portray Lily. The way you characterize her makes her very easy to connect with and I really feel like I understand how she's feeling. Now I have to be honest, I was a little put off at the way that James was introduced at Kings Cross. I'm not sure why, he just seemed a little too cold. Although his behavior did grow on me throughout the chapter and by the end, (the way he was acting 'normal' with his friends) I found myself very intrigued.
Great story so far! Hope to see you update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked how Lily was portrayed. I tried to keep her in character. I know James seemed really cold and distant at Kings Cross but I wanted his new behavior to be clear enough to have an effect on Lily and keep her wondering what happened to the old Potter. He won't stay that way for too long though. =] Anyways, chapter 3 will hopefully be up soon. Thanks again for reviewing! ~Julia
Summary: It's hard to let go, it's even harder realizing that you can't. JamesLily Oneshot.
I thought this was a cute one shot. Although I wish there was a little more explanation about what happened with lily and james previously. I was a bit confused... but all the same, I liked the story!
Summary: After the disastrous events of the end of the Marauder's fifth year, a fuming Lily Evans decides that that arrogant James Potter and his friends need a taste of their own medicine. The straight-laced Prefect suddenly finds herself pranking her class's trickiest boys--and maybe even enjoying it. Coupled with a series of mysterious apology letters that Lily has begun receiving, it's bound to be an interesting year.
Winner of the 2010 QSQ for Best Canon Romance!
Hey! So I'm really enjoying your story! I like the fact that how James likes Lily isn't commonly known. It provides an interesting dynamic that's different from most L/J fics and will probably make for some funny moments, I'm sure. I also really like the way that you write the characters and dialogue, it all flows very naturally without feeling rushed. One last note, I really like the whole patronus part, I had never really thought about Lily's patronus changing into a doe once she fell in love with James but I really like the idea.
Can't wait to read your next chapter!
