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.

Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.

Author's Response: I never responded to your review (I'm catching up now *slaps wrist*) Chapter 15 should be up fairly soon if you're still reading.

i knew it but what is up with Sonia she is a character that i am beginning not to like another fantastic chapter
Author's Response: Oh Sonia's not really mean - just a bit superficial. She gets a bit more than she bargained for in later chapters. *winks*
I wonder if Remus smells tonks ?
Author's Response: Ahhhh. well it's changeable and she is a Metamorphmagus ... so who knows? Thank you for taking the time to read and review - I do appreciate it. Carole xxx
oh dear ! please update i can't wait to read the next chapter
Author's Response: Ahhhh! Trying hard. I've been distracted by holidays and other fics - poor Lions they have to wait a bit. Carole xxx

Summary: Brenan Potter, son of Harry and Ginny Potter, has always felt overshadowed by his famous father and his perfect little sister. He resents his family, hates that he has no talent, and deplores always being overlooked. Brenan vows that he will make himself famous, but his love for Potions and his attraction to the granddaughter of Bellatrix Lestrange leads him astray. Will his quest for acknowledgment guide him down a path similar to that of He-Who-Must-Not-be-Named?
well I'm not going to lie this is strange ! and that is why i wanted to read it because not many show Harry's son in this light
i like the way that you've cut out all the fairytale and made it realistic i'll keep looking for updates
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I hope you continue to like the story. ~Sayla

Summary: Keedie Dante has experienced many amazing things during her time at Hogwarts, including the hushed up drama that was the Chamber of Secrets. However, with two overachieving friends and a headmaster who does not even know she exists, Keedie feels that perhaps her seventh year will not be too spectacular. However, Dumbeldore sees her potential as a writer and enrols her in a simple writing course. Here, she meets the mysterious and terrifying Tom Riddle and they instantly get under one another's skin. She is drawn to his dark determination towards some unknown goal and he is fascinated by her, in every way. However, Tom's friends do not approve of Keedie and her unconventional ways and Keedie has many people trying to keep her away from the dark young man as well. Something inside tells Keedie that she can make him better, but even he assures her that this is an impossible task. But she's not one to give up easily...
"He is a dark one, Keedie. Try not to let him consume you entirely."
This story has the characters Albus Dumbledore, Armando Dippet, Moaning Myrtle, Rubeus Hagrid, Aaron Dante, Harry Potter, Ebony Abbott, Minerva McGonagall, Melena Creevey, Ollivander, Gregor Holmwood, Horace Slughorn and, of course, Tom Riddle and Keedie Dante...enjoy!
Winner of "Best Romance Between Other Characters" and nominated for "Best Female OC" in the 2009 Quicksilver Quill Awards
wow he actually showed her his memories ! and Mel and Holmwood :S i never saw that happening.
Another satisfying chapter i am really scared that it will come to an end i am actually in love with this couple
please update soon :D
Author's Response: Will do. Mel and Grego deserve each other. :)
Honestly at first i thought that you should have left it at the last chapter but now reading this one i can see why you didn't, it was amazing. But i'm sad that it's now ended i feel as if i have been apart of this journey with tom and keedie and the story rocks !!!
It is so sad but the ending makes it feel complete, and you have 100% convinced me that tom riddle is not what he seems
Author's Response: Yay! That was my mission. Thanks for reading and reviewing this story, it truly means a lot. :D
wow this chapter is mind blowing ! i have cried almost the whole way through it and i to feel empty but satisfied. I know keedie had to die to make the story fit with J.K. Rowling's but still it doesn't make me feel any happier, at least i can rely on the thought that if keedie would have lived tom would have been different.
Honestly i thought this could have been the last chapter but obviously epilogue is kinda different.
Much praise to the story :D and both hands in the air i miss Keedie.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks. I'm sorry I had to kill her. I do feel bad. So glad you approve of the chapter and the epilogue should be soon. :D
okai i admit i have looked at this fic several times and just carried on looking (it is not the usual catagory i would choose) but something told me to start reading it and i am soo glad i did. I have no read five chapters without break and i love this story !
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I'm so glad you like it and you kept reading. Please keep R&R ing :D
wow this is good finally some connection between the two i cant wait to find out what goes wrong !
Author's Response: Oh dear, many many things! Please keep reviewing! :-)
woooowwww loved it omg i can't even describe it i just know that it blew my mind reading it
Author's Response: *blushes* Thank you. Please keep telling me what you think, I love to know. :-)
i actually love this couple but why can't they just not be interupted for once!
Author's Response: Because then there would be no story ;-)
i have been waiting for this chapter for two days but it felt like two years !
i felt like a user waiting for my next drug !
As always brilliant please update soon i swear i am addicted ! ( and a little exclamation mark happy)
Author's Response: Glad you're hooked! :-)
ohhh very intamite ! love it as usual
Author's Response: So glad you like this chapter, it was a challenge to write. Keep up the R&R ing :-)
the next chapter is the last *crying very much* i cant believe it i want keedie to survive and i want her and tom to live on forever. This was brilliant i must say and i know how tom has to end up but it would be great if we could just forget that. I cant wait for the chapter please update soon otherwise i feel afraid that the story might start to slip from my mind.
Author's Response: There's two more chapters, if you count the epilogue as one. Next chapter soon, I hope! :-)
oh of course i had promised that i would tell you how i thought the story would end and seeing as it is pretty close i might as well tell you whilst i remember.
First of all i did think Keedie was going to die eventually , and still do. Reason- because i believe that you have made a character that means so much to tom that this is the only way i see it possible for him to become like we know later in furture. Also by doing so it is as if your excusing tom because of his loss from keedie he can punish the world. Well that's how i like to see it anyway.
But i am still unsure how she dies and i am not convinced that Tom will leave her to die now so i dont think that the tramp kills her.
I guess my biggest thing was that i did actually believe she would be dead by the end because i could not see them living as separate people right ?
Well i'll have to wait and see if i am right at all probably not loool
Author's Response: I should probably stress at this point to everyone that this stab wound is pretty deep. And loss of blood, and a fragile disposition, can kill you pretty quickly....but you're right; the next few chapters will cover everything. Thanks for the nominations by the way :D
more than welcome but i should be thanking you for this brilliant story i mean i'd be mad not to nominate it !
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I hope you feel the same when it ends! :-)
