Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.

Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!

Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)


Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.

I just finished your story, and I have to say, it was just plain awesome. JK herself would fall in love with your original characters. I just found it last week and I have been reading at every chance I could get. Stupid work and school. lol. But I have to say I was sad to see it come to an end. I guess all great things must, but still. Who wouldn't enjoy a little more Maraudering in their life?

I love how much attention to detail you show. It really puts me into the scene. I was wondering how you came up with the Montana bit? That was a very nice touch, showed the teens being teens and having a nice little vacation, abroad. :o)

My favorites of your original characters are definately Sam and Monica. I loved how what they represented I guess. Just perfect.

If you ever were wondering if it would worth it to post a sequel, I can tell you with certainty you'd have at least one avid reader!

 

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.

:o) Love it!! Rich seems to be a bit defensive about his wand, no? I think Rich sees the Lily really likes James... I am very interested to see what he is up to! Seems a bit dodgy to me. I love the way you write! This is just an amazing story! Keep up the good work!! :o)

Author's Response: thank you very much for the complomnets. Rich is ... an enigma at the moment. heh heh heh

Yay!! More of my Favorite Marauder Tale!!

I liked this Chapter a lot. Personally, I don't like Sonia. I find her just as annoying as Sirius does. But, I am probably the only one, seeing as I dislike anyone who gets between Lily and James :o) But I do however like how you show James in a way where its easy to believe he is just a teenager, letting his emotions and hormones rule.

As for this Brackenfen, I admit I had to go back through all the other Chapters to find it, because I am impossibly impatient and needed to know if my suspicions were correct. And I really like the way its playing out. Poor Lily though, just like with James, you make it really easy for me to see her as just another teenager. Letting her attraction for the cute older boy blind her. (because I have thought he was a bad guy ever since the Forbidden Forest incident. not saying he is, just saying I don't like him, again cause he got in the way of Lily and James) I can imagine a huge blow up fight coming up between Lily and James over it. Ooooohhh Maybe that will cause James and Sonia to split!! and Peter to get all mad... oh man now I am letting my imagination run away with tself. lol

I really like how you show us a side of Sirius that we don't see very often. I liked that very much.

Did I tell you how much I love your story? Cause you just made my weekend by posting the new Chapter! Hopefully, I could have another really good weekend sometime in the very near future? *wink*wink*

P.S. As for Mary - in A.A. I am rooting for them to break up. But in L.O.G. I like them together, it seems like its one of Remus' only ways to feel like a normal teenager, like the rest. I like that. So that's a yay for Mary in L.O.G. and a boo to Mary in A.A. :o)

Author's Response: Thank you very much. Now, I like Sonia, but only because she's fun to write. I'd probably find her quite irritating in RL - ha ha. Ah, Brackenfen, yes I admit I didn't want it to appear obvious where James had heard the name before, but I'm glad you've worked it out. Not everything you've said is correct though ... heh heh heh. Thank you so much for all your reviews, it's much appreciated. Oh, Mary/Remus ... watch this space (and the one in AA) Thanks again ~Carole~

LOVE IT! I love the relationship for Moony, as well as the Love/Hate of James and Lily. Can't get enough of how you write these people. I think J.K. herself would be proud of how you write them!

Author's Response: thank youuuuuu

Awe! James and Lily out of school hanging out, how cute! :o) Love how much the Potters love her. She really does belong with them. I hope Hally will be ok!! I am so happy with this chapter. Sirius and Martha, now there is a cute couple! I love the characters you create and the way you make the already created ones interact with them. I really enjoy this. :o)

Author's Response: Thank you very nuch for the review. I'm glad you like Martha. She wasn't going to be that important, really, just someone that had a crush on James, but she demanded more story ... and a different man. ~Caroile~

Ah the Sirius development with his brother, is GREAT! It really shows how different they are. I like how Lily is starting to warm up to James, which of course is adorable and just makes me love Moony so much more. Love your writing, love the story! :o)

Author's Response: Thank you .... Lily is warming to him ... a little bit.

:o) I love how Fabian plays in. Poor Moony, i feel so bad for him. Still love James and Lily and there obvious attraction that neither of them see, :o) I am just so happy with your story!

Author's Response: Lily's just too stubborn. Too used to seeing James in a bad light. That's her problem. Silly girl. ~Carole~

:o) Love the James and Lily flirting, the obvious relationship between Fabian and Madam Pomfrey. I still love the Moony and Mary thing, he deserves love. So does Sirius, him and Martha is VERY cute. LOVE the writing, LOVE the characters, LOVE LOVE LOVE the story!

Author's Response: I like Martha too. In fact she turns up in my Remus/Tonks story (Apparently Asleep) and in a one shot, so I'm pleased you like her. Ah, Moony/Mary ... well lets's ee. She is good for him, I think but ... Thanks for reviewing ~Carole~

Oh man, RICH! James is not gonig to be happy about this, especially because he almost got to ask her out. Oh man, I LOVE your writing, Phenomenal Story, I love it!

Author's Response: Ha ha - the fabulous Rich ... he had to appear again. No jmes is not a happy bunny, is he. Thanks for reviewing ~Carole~

OH!!! This was such an AMAZING Chapter. I am not sure how i feel about the Lily-Rich thing, but then again, she has to date someone else before she realises she loves James. But i can't fight the feeling that Rich is a bad guy, Maybe i am just jealous for James. I am not sure, but i do know without a doubt that your story is just sensational. I cannot wait for the next chapter. I am so excited to see why Rich was in the forest, and what is going to happen!! I am so happy with your writing. Looking forward to the next chapter!! :o)

Author's Response: Thank you soi much for all your reviews - ha ha, you have been busy! Hmm, Rich is ... complicated ... that's all I'll say at the moment. Butr yeah, Lily does need someone to compare to James, doesn't she? ~Carole~
