Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
I LOVED this story! it's some really wonderful james and lilly with great marauders banter. Their entire romance is so perfect and the plot is exciting and intriguing. It's also very well written. So many fics are sloppily edited or have substandard writing, but this one is a fantastic read! thank you! can't wait for the epilogues
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked both the James and Lily romance as well as the Marauder banter -- I really love reading and writing about the Marauders, but I'm never sure I'll capture them very well. And I'm glad you think the story well written! A lot of fanfiction isn't, you're right, so it's good to know you think mine is :)
Summary: James Sirius Potter was two years out of school, taking his first steps toward a brilliant Quidditch career, but on a night of drunken celebration, he meets his match in the form of a Hufflepuff bombshell who sets him straight.
wow, you're an amazing writer! I loved this! i can't wait to read the whole fic!
Thank you very much. This is actually some of my very early writing, so my style has improved. I hope you like the rest of the story, because I put quite a bit of time into it. It's not what most people expected it to be, but I tried to make it into what I envisioned, not what was expected.
Thanks for reviewing, adn have a good day!

Well, that couldn't be any more real for Draco Malfoy than on the eve of his wedding. He was getting married the next day, but all he could think about is how his life was about to become so much more damned complicated.
He had no idea.

this is wonderful! I'm sort of new to this site and this is the first story that i've felt strongly enough about to review! It was wonderful! you wrote such an excellent draco. He was so fun to read without losing any of his signature vileness :) It was so well written, too! All the other stories i've come across so far have been full of grammatical errors and distracting typos and yours is just about perfect! I also really loved the bit before he walks down the aisle with the count down to matrimony, that was genius! I'll definitely look for more stories by you!
Ooh, two reviews in one night. It's like Christmas!
I love this story for a variety of reasons. Typically, I promote a reformed Draco, one whose changed and improved his character, maybe not so much because he wanted to as much as had to in order to stay with the rest of society. His soul searching led him to places that he had never dreamt possible. That being said, though, sometimes, I like him to stay as the rogue a-hole that we all know him to be in the books. There are a variety of ways that Draco could adapt to post-war life, and this is merely one of them. I really enjoyed writing this story, and I wanted it to be as raunchy as possible, lol. I think I've, er, done that. :D
Have a great day/night/whatever, and I hope to see you again sometime.
