WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH THIS FANFICTION. I WANT TO SEE JAMES POTTER GIVE LILY HER AND BACK!!!!
Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs -- These names are known by every person in Hogwarts. These names, and an envelope with a scarlet wax seal bearing the letters: MWPP.
The teachers dread it, the students revel in it...but who are these 'Marauders,' as they are called? That's just it. Nobody knows. Most every prank Hogwarts sees is at the hands of these mysterious Marauders, and the perpetrators always walk free. They could never be caught. You can’t catch phantoms.
Lily Evans is just as curious as the next student as to who these Marauders are, but her curiosity is transformed into a hungry need, when she receives a letter herself from a certain Mr. Prongs.
[This story is slightly AU, but more on that in the author's note at the end.]

omgggggggggg, wow. is this whole story centered mostly on remus. i hope not. but, that description of remus's transformation was incredible!!!!!
Author's Response: I'm a big Remus fan, so a lot of it is centered around him, but no, it does focus on all of the Marauders. Glad you liked the description of his transformation. Thanks for reading!

Winner of the 2010 QSQ for Best Canon Romance!
awwwwwwwwwww! cute. i hope you do write a sequel.
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 like this fanfiction, but i don't think james and lily focused so much on a killer when they were together. it's so sweet how james listens to everything lily tells him to do..."Okay? Yes. I'll help you. Of course I'll help you....''
Author's Response: Thank you! No, there are times when the killer fades to the background. In my opinion it wouldn't entirely take over their lives. I'm glad you think James sweet :)
Summary: And there he was. The one boy she could not stand. His messy, jet black hair was ruffled and untidy and his glasses were sitting crooked on his nose. James Potter was here. With Lily. And all her Muggle friends. At a Muggle ski resort. Could things possibly be worse? Oh yeah, Sirius Black is there, too.
ooooooooooooomgggggggg!!!!!! this is good! i love it. what was on the note??? okay, this fanfiction may be seem a little absurd of how the lily and james story actually went, but it's okay. a little juvenile, but cool. adorable...so what was on that note??? i have to know, write soon!
Author's Response: I've just finished chapter 12, so you will get to find out what the note says soon! One of the great aspects of the Marauder Era is that we don't really know what happens, so nothing is too crazy and nothing is non-cannon. Thanks for reading and reviewing and hopefully the next chapter will be posted soon =]
Summary: For Lily Evans, James Potter was just a crush. A guilty pleasure, in other words. She never meant to fall in love with him. Especially after six long years of having to reject him. James would always be chasing after her, so why not live a little before giving in? It's finally come to their Seventh Year at Hogwarts after all. But little did Lily know, James took his tactics to a whole new level- Operation: Lily.
this story is amusing to read. can't wait for the next chapter :)
Summary: They were virtually apart for most of their lives, both in word and in deed. She was headstrong, he was arrogant. She was kind, and he was courageous. But when Lily and James needed each other the most, they were together.
Set during their seventh year at Hogwarts, as Voldemort steadily rose to power before the First War.
sweet. i hope you update soon. sirius sounds different in this fanfiction..he actually sounds like another remus reading that book. this fanfiction sounds like another one i've read before. i'm not sure james automatically says i love her when he see's her with his friends..i think he kept it to himself. he probably had a crush with her at first then found out he loved her when became older. let me guess, it's peter that gave away the information to the dark lord, right? :) update soon!!!
Author's Response: Haha yes, I know Sirius sounds odd, but I will certainly address that. I can tell you that it has to do with the fact that Sirius has recently run away from home. Also, about James admitting that he loves her to his friends, I was trying to portray that immaturity and a mild sense of ignorance that, while we don't want to believe it, James certainly possessed. Fear not, however, as this story won't just be James pining after Lily like a lovesick puppy. I'll try to update soon; thanks for your wonderful review!
lily is such a ***
Author's Response: Heh, in my notes at the beginning of the chapter, I pleaded forgiveness if you thought as such. Don't worry, she won't be like this forever. We all see Lily Evans as this confident, kind person, but she had her own insecurities, just like anybody else. She's hated James for six years. It takes a long time to get over that.
wow. i feel sorry for lily evans now :(
and for remus.
i hate james for hurting remus like that.
umm...who was lurking in the shadows....i have two guesses.
it's either james or tate, right?
please update soon.
Author's Response: Well, don't hate James. His friends told him to move on and he did! And well... Remus bottles everything up and James couldn't have possibly guessed such a thing. Don't worry.. we all know how things turn out in the end! ;) As for the shadow-lurking fiend-or-friend... you'll simply have to wait for my next update (:.
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!
yes, i am very curious to how james thinks. can't wait for the next chapter, james pov.
Author's Response: Thank you! The (very rough) draft of James' chapter 3 is already finished, so it should be a shorter wait, I think.
interesting, very interesting. i love this fanfiction so far!!!!! keep it up. please update soon. i think the lily evans you've created in this fanfiction is soooooo correct. i mean, a lot of fans obviously view her as a bossy, strict, harsh girl towards james potter, which is true, but she also has a soft side. i like how you said, "“Don’t-you-dare-say-that-word,” James growled, ignoring everything except the hurt expression on Lily’s face. He poked his wand into Rookwood’s chest with every word, which left small, cigarette-like burns in Rookwood’s shirt.
“James, that is enough!” Lily said sharply, and James released the trembling Rookwood. Into his ear, she whispered, “I think the way you try to boss everyone around is despicable.”
in the books lily evans was descirbed as a kind person-not all ferocious and bossy. she is ferocious..in a kind..timid way. so update soon.
last question: is the james potter in your fanfiction mature, because i can't tell?
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I worked really hard on writing Lily as I think she would be, so that means a lot :) As to your question, I think James is (slowly) getting more mature, and he will be more adult by the story's end. Then again, he can't resist acting like a fool in front of Lily.
Summary: 'If you change your mind, I'm the first in line. Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me.'
They say that your last year of school is supposed to be your best. Too bad that isn’t true for Lily Evans and James Potter. Who knew that everything can be ruined in a week? First an over-the-top crush, then two friendships. Can you fix everything by someone changing their mind or is it too late once it’s over?
it's really scary sometimes of the resembleance between me and a fictional character. LILY EVANS IS SOOOOOOOO MY TWIN. i love your fanfiction. update soon! :]
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it!
Summary: Lily Evans wasn't quite sure why she agreed to go on a date with James Potter. It had surprised them both when she'd said 'yes'. But James hadn't stopped grinning and she was happy too ... until the owl turned up at breakfast.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree.
Thank you so much to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this tale for me. Sorry the IES didn't make an appearance. This fic is compliant with Veils.
i don't think petunia was soo mean to the extent of not inviting her sister to her own wedding!!!
overall the fanfiction was sweet, james potter is really modest.tehe :)
Author's Response: I don't think Petunia wanted Lily at her wedding at all. She'd have been terrified of Lily performing magic in front of Vernon and his family. You might like to read Veils which this is the ... hm ... prologue to, I suppose. Veils is from Petunia's POV. Thanks for reading. ~Carole~
