Summary: He withdrew his arms from around her, and reached into the back pocket of his shorts. As he bent down to kiss her again, he took hold of her hand, and placed inside it a square box. “Happy birthday.”
This is the tale of a birthday… A seventeenth birthday, no less. It tells of a present given to a redheaded teenager by the love of her life, a gift that became the best present she would ever receive; better than all past and all future presents. It tells of a present she would never, ever forget.
So sweet! You definitely did them justice =] They are one of my favourite couples, and it's nice to read more about them. I love the reference to Harry's birthday, as that's one of my favourite moments in the book. I also love the connection to James and Lily (my absolute favourite couple!). I've always liked the parallels between James/Lily and Harry/Ginny so I thought the locket was a good symbolisation of that (I'm hoping that was your intention, and not just me reading too much into it, as i tend to do!) Keep it up!
Summary: … When you look in her eyes and she's looking back in yours... everything... feels... not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is... you don't know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable and you weren't ready for it.”
James Potter is waiting. He’s standing on the street he grew up on, waiting for the person who changed his life forever.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This quotation is taken from Spider hyphen Man. I'm not trying to steal it, but I've always loved that moment in the film, and I realised it fitted quite nicely with a certain James and Lily :)
You already know what I think of this...so beautiful. I LOVE the way you write James =] xxx
