Summary: The sequel to “Trickster”: The Marauders return to Hogwarts for their seventh and final year. Lily and James juggle more responsibility than ever, and James learns that convincing Lily to go on an actual date with him is harder than he would have imagined. Remus frets about post-Hogwarts life while Peter drifts even further from his friends. 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.

September 2012: HEY guess what I couldn't wait, and the third installment, "World Enough," is UP NOW under James/Lily. Or just under my name. Or at this link: http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=92131. Yay! :D
I loved this chapter! The character development was great. It was so nice to get insight into what Sirius and Remus are thinking while everything's going on. And at the same time a lot happened with James and Lily. Perfect justification of why James would be with Leda at that point in the chapter. And it was perfect the way Lily realizes her feelings for James.
Also the reference to Professor Lupin was brilliant.
Author's Response: oh, thanks so much! i know, i felt really bad putting them--and all of you!--through this, but you know. you gotta go there to come back :P
Ch. 15 was definitely worth the wait :)
I loved it, my favorite chapter so far in this story.
Summary: Professor Dumbledore always referred to it as 'March Madness', that time of year when a certain band of Gryffindors ran amok. But in the Spring of nineteen-seventy-eight, one of the Marauders had other things on his mind.
Perhaps things will finally quieten down.

A word about the warnings: The SSP is minor and I'm only using a 'warning' because otherwise I might get angry letters *snort*. The Sexual Situations are evident.

Amazing! I loved this story. It was really good. There were some very funny lines I laughed at, especially in the beginning. Cute Lily and James interaction, you may get this a lot, but you really should write this paring again. And it was good to see Professor Dumbledore sum up what was going on at the end. The last line was perfect :)
Author's Response: I write James Lily quite a lot, actually. It's just that generally it's under the Marauder category. You might like 'Sixth Time's the Charm' or 'First Date Disaster' and 'Veils'- they're James/Lily. Thank you for the review ~Carole~
