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.
this is going to be soo funny please hurry and write some more chapters

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.
aww this is what i have been waiting for i love it and the fact that they are taking it slow it is really sweet.
BUT,,,, i dont think you should go to germany because how will i cope without an update for 3 weeks !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: aw thanks! i'm glad you like it. and the fact that they're taking it slow. i think that makes it more romantic. =] but yea, i'm going to germany. but i promise to try to update as soon as i get back. ~Julia~
WOW ! that was amazing i loved it and it was sooo worth the wait.
Hmmmm..... okai well i'm guessing this person will be bad right? evil always spoils moments like that.

Summary: James has tried. Now it's time to give up.
I’m going to let her go. I’m going to let her be her own person, without me around. Without me around to bother her anymore.
A one-shot from James POV about trying to give up
SEQUEL It Wasn't You, It Was Me NOW ON MNFF!
"She was pretty, not beautiful. She was smart, not brilliant. She was funny, not witty. She was mine, not someone else’s. She was Emma Vance, not Lily Evans. " i love this is is amzing
Summary: It's hard to let go, it's even harder realizing that you can't. JamesLily Oneshot.
AWW THATS BEAUTIFUL POOR HESTIA SHE STOOD NO CHANCE
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.
Brilliant i really like the introduction to the story. The part where James sees harry and thinks it's himself is genius ! well more chapters to read so ...
