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.

Great, I love the characterization of Collin, as not just the first year who worshipped Harry. As a young man ready to fight for what's right.
Author's Response: Thanks. Colin (and his death) seems to be a theme in several of my stories. It runs through "Tales of the Battle," too. -N-
Summary: The sequel to “Trickster”: The Marauders return to Hogwarts for their seventh and final year.

But when Sirius discovers a group of fourth-years who are bound and determined to steal the Marauders’ title of Greatest Hogwarts Troublemakers he wages war, rallying his friends so they can maintain their legacy. Meanwhile, outside the castle grounds, Voldemort is gathering supporters in unending preparation for a much darker battle…

great! really sweet, it would be good if it had been more drawn out though! i wanted it to go on!
Author's Response: I'm sorry it wasn't as long as you would have liked. It was my first time writing a different couple other than Harry/Ginny. Still it leaves it open for me to write more of Neville and Hannah fics. Thanks for reading.

fantastic! did you intentionally put the AVPM reference in? 'going back to hogwarts'?
Author's Response: Thank you for reading this! I'm glad you enjoyed it. No, I did not put in the reference...I'm ashamed to say I haven't sat down and watched AVPM yet. I really need to do that, since I love Darren Criss on Glee! Thanks so much for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
