Summary: James Potter is Head Boy and Gryffindor Quidditch captain in his seventh year at Hogwarts. He has three best friends and his life seems perfect--except that Lily Evans, the only girl he's ever loved, can't stand him.
Lily Evans is Head Girl and top of their class. She's always been disgusted by James' arrogance, yet she can't seem to stop blushing when he's around.
As their Head Boy and Girl duties bring them together, can James find a way to win Lily's love?
A Different Kind of Magic has been nominated for the 2011 Quicksilver Quills: Best Canon Romance. Thank you!
it was good. i thought james had told sirius about his mom not Mr Potter. he is such a stupid person.sirius has a right to cut his friendship with james.update soon
Author's Response: Thank you! And no, James didn't tell Sirius. That was part of the reason Sirius was crying in the last chapter because Sirius felt like James had no right to keep something like this from him. Don't give up on James yet. He is selfish--that's partly from the way he has been brought up--but people can change. Anyway, yes, I'll try to update soon!
Summary: The sequel to “Trickster”: The Marauders return to Hogwarts for their seventh and final year. Lily and James juggle more responsibility than ever, and James learns that convincing Lily to go on an actual date with him is harder than he would have imagined. Remus frets about post-Hogwarts life while Peter drifts even further from his friends. But when Sirius discovers a group of fourth-years who are bound and determined to steal the Marauders’ title of Greatest Hogwarts Troublemakers he wages war, rallying his friends so they can maintain their legacy. Meanwhile, outside the castle grounds, Voldemort is gathering supporters in unending preparation for a much darker battle…

Lily Evans is pretty, intelligent, vivacious… and accused of murder. James Potter is privileged, arrogant, and conceited… and her best chance at avoiding Azkaban. If only he wasn’t convinced of her guilt.
With a war looming in the background and evil slowly seeping into the wizarding world, seven years of secrets unravel, and two very different people find themselves caught up in a battle against privilege, intolerance, and greed.
But even in the darkness, and even in the despair, there is still friendship, and love, and hope.
Well done dawnie. you're a genius, somehow :d.
i didn't think narcissa really could care about anyone except her family, ever.though she kept lily's secret:
"Whatever the blonde witch might say about her own motives and reasons, it did not change the fact that she had taken Lily’s wand and Lily’s secret, and she had not told a soul."
you said otherwise!hope to see more of your work.
Author's Response: Thanks! I think Narcissa was a complicated character in canon, and she definitely had the potential for doing good, primarily because of her love for Draco. So, when writing this story, I tried to hold onto the fact that she has good inside of her. She went out of her way to make Lily miserable, but she also saved her life.
it was realy good keep writing.
I can't believe it's finished.i would have waited for another if i hadnt read your note!
But the end was just gr8.
I'm looking forward for the next one you write.
Author's Response: Thanks! There is definitely more that could be told in this AU world, but the story is sadly over. I'm glad you liked it.
wow.it's gr8.keep writing
oh that was gr8.plz update soon.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you like it.
He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.
Winner, Quicksilver Quill for Best Canon Romance. Thank you!!

oh i'm glad lil & jam could actualy talk!and i dont understand why they don't know about their feelings towards each other.Poor mark and Cynthia
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yes, they are rather clueless, aren't they? Well, they are in denial, obviously! I suppose they will get there eventually...maybe. ;) Thanks for reading, hope you continue to enjoy it! ~Gina :)
good writing and good story but you keep going with the same things. :(
Author's Response: Thanks for the compliments, although I'm not sure about the same things happening over and over. It may seem that way, but I wanted to show both sides of their story, and how similar they are, so its all been deliberate and planned. One of them sees them with someone and thinks the wrong thing, then the other sees them with someone and thinks the wrong thing. They just can't get around their misconceptions and misunderstandings. And then, after what happened in Chapter 17, you didn't think they'd just end up together, did you? Hee hee. ;) I'm not stringing it out as torture, I'm just trying to build some depth. I hope you enjoy the rest, it does get better for them, I promise. ;) ~Gina :)
