The Lions of Gryffindor by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 335]

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt 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.

Wow... I really adore this story. I've been reading a lot of Marauders' Fanfiction, but this is the only fic that I think that matches the characters J.K Rowling created. I love how you portray the Lily/James relantionship because is believable; it couldn't happen over night, they both had to mature enough to develop the love that would have Harry as a result.
James, Sirius, Remus and Lily have always had a special place in my heart, and this story is making me love them even more.
This story is even making me love Peter!! Well, the Peter of this story anyway. It's going to be very difficult to read when or if you write the part about the betrayal. I think that's the bittersweet part about writng or reading a story about the marauders' era; read about this beautiful and amazing frienship knowing that it ended in such a horrible way.
All the same, I can't wait for your update!!!!!!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the lovely review. There may be a bit of a wait for the next chapter whilst I get on with some other fics and an original fic, but I will get this finished. I am glad you're enjoying the story and am especially pleased you think my version of the Marauders is close to JK's. ~Carole~

Another great chapter... For me the best was the Snape's part; Lily calling him a coward just as Harry does in the last part of HBP was the perfect end. I wonder how far are you planing to go with this story??? Until 7th year or beyond that??? Please try to update soon!! =)

Author's Response: At the moment I have plans to the end of Hogwarts and no furthur. Having said that, I've always been fascinated by Peter's betrayal so I might have to carry on. Thank you so much for the review. I'm so pleased you're enjoying it. Carole xxx

I think this story is great, I love how you capture all the different personalities of each character and reflect that in their actions and dialogues... When we sould read another chapter?????? Im dying to know what happens next...

Author's Response: OOOH, thank you. That's a lovely thing to say. What started out as a very James centric fic has certainly changed as I became more interested in the other players. The next chapter is in the queue so hopefully it will be validated soon. *crosses fingers*. Carole xxx
