Summary: If you're looking for the usual James-loves-Lily-but-Lily-hates-James storyline, then this isn't it. The thing is, Lily doesn't hate James at all, he can just be annoying at the best of times. As she comes to realise why she doesn't hate him, it leads to the famous love we all know about. Set against the backdrop of a warring magical world where nothing is certain, can James and Lily hold onto each other and fight?
UPDATE August 08: It's FINISHED! Thank you so much to all those who have read and reviewed this story, I have loved your support. i hope there are still people out there who are willing to read it. Keep an eye out for more stories by me! UPDATE February '08: I have changed the chapter names of some of the 'Defied' chapters, to make this fit and to make it more plausible, as I see the 'thrice defying' of Voldemort as happening when James and Lily are part of the Order of the Phoenix.
UPDATE 20th September: I have altered my facts in the chapter 'Once Defied' as I made mistakes in the ages of James and Lily. It didn't matter so much in this chapter but had annoying repercusions for future chapters. It should all now be correct.
apologized... and realized.
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 really like it but there is one part where it says Lily Evens so just remember to change it to Evans
Author's Response: *Headdesk* I can't believe I did that! Thanks for picking that up :). I'm glad you are enjoying the story. Thanks for the review!
It's really good, but you should check for basic grammer errors for example at one point you said injected mcconagall, but it should have been interjected, unless you want her to be a doctor
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I do read over before I submit and send it to Beta's - but sometimes we do miss things. *Celebrates 50 reviews* :)
I love this story. It's one of my favourites
Author's Response: Lol, actually I am really bad at making up names, so Lorely is actually one of my friends. Must be a weird spelling of it.... Anyway, I'm really glad you like the story! Thanks for the review :)
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.
I like it...I really like it
Author's Response: thank you!
Summary: Amongst the despair and sorrow of the wizarding world, James Potter, resident trouble-maker and Lily Evans, bookworm find that after a bit of work, several detentions, fights, parties and sneaky veela they can have a Typical Day in Paradise.
Really Good so far, but it's Richmond, England, London is the city.
