Summary: It 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.

Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
Wow your story is beyond brilliant. Descriptive, amazingly written, and the character's words seem to have came right out of JK's mouth. It's almost hard to believe that this isn't canon. One of the best stories I've read here, and one of the best I've read in while. Well done
Author's Response: Thank you very very much! I love writing this story, so although my updates have been a touch infrequent of late, it will get finished. Thanks again. ~Carole~
Summary: When Liam Larkan was a young boy studying at Hogwarts, he tragically lost his mother to a Death Eater.
That was six years ago.
Now that he's grown up - fresh out of school, a Dueling champion, and a favorite student of many - this Slytherin realizes it's time to get some revenge.
Very descriptive and you described the duel superbly. Short and precise but very good.
