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. Meanwhile, outside the castle grounds, Voldemort is gathering supporters in unending preparation for a much darker battle…

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
WOW! cliff hanger...really cute date haha i wish i could sneak into Hogsmeade. Leda and Annebelle are up to somthing bad i just know it!! cant wait for the next chapter
This was a really good chapter.....the prank was a great idea. However, the impationent side of me really wants James and Lily to get together already. I miss the old James the one who was brave and funny, the one who once said tha he wouldn't give up on Lily. I find this new James rather annoying only becuase he wouln't make things right w/ his friends even though he knows that he screwed peter over, ditiched his best friend he will ever had for Leda of all people and snapped at Remus. Please bring the old James back!! I miss him dearly,
PS despite the annoying James factor this was a really good chapter, well done again!!
Author's Response: yeah, tbh, he's annoying me, too. he's going through stuff. you may like the next chapter a little more, though ;)
That was ggggrrrreat!
I agree. Your stories are great-the best fanfic i've read. I don't want to speak for anybody else but i get the feeling that alot of us fell head over heels for trickster and have been freaks about stars apart aswell. Im disapointed with how infrequent your updates have been for the past month or so. I know life needs to come first your 100% right, But you have a lot of fans who look forward to each new chapeter and response to a review. With a great pen like yours their comes great respresponsibility.
Author's Response: i know, i know i've been way behind :/ but i'm almost done with the next chapter, so it should be up soon, i promise!!
god lord this wait is annoying!! Just curious do you have any idea why the queue would take this long? Or is is it always like this?
Author's Response: nah, this is taking way longer than usual...i'm not sure what's up! I just checked on the chapter, and it's definitely still in queue. fingers crossed it will be up soon
The last chapter was great!! Is their more on its way?
Keep up the good work,
I'm really excited for the next chapter this was a really good segway into what im sure will be an eventful x-mass. I really liked hearing Remus' prospective from time to time becuase i find his voice of reason somewhat refreshing. I bet your tiered of hearing this but amazing job AGAIN.
your faithfull fan,
wow. nice job. i really loved the detail at the end He really understood people, Remus thought, but for reasons he couldn’t name, reasons he was unable or unwilling to make Sirius see, it made him uncomfortable. i thought that was genius pure genius. that was a good x-mass. Leda is legitiamatily insane, to think that James would ever choose her boring butt over his best friends. Every thing feels back to normal. You don't have to answer this but i have a question. How far away lily and james to start dating? you are so good at leaveing cliff hangers.
Can't wait to get back to the castel,
This was a cute chapter! But i cant wait for the next one since you said you have been planning it for such a long time
Greaat chapter! love it lots keep up the great work
I love sirius chapters!! this is one of my favorites becuase their is mystrey while still being very realistic. Honestly, stars apart is the story of lily, james and gang to me. When i read the books i feel so cool knowing all this stuff about harrys parents. Your an awesome writer, especially the way you potray chacters. Do you ever write things that aren't fanfiction?? becuase if you got published i know i would read what you wrote!!! love it, keep it up!
You captured a great feeling of bittersweet i really enjoyed this chapter. I'm glad everbody is on the road to recovery. The way you described James' house was actully how i imagined it.......Leda is such a witch (and we all know what that rythms with) thanks so much great chapter
I just re-read the ending to trickster.....again. That night in June seems like forever ago. I want to give you props for making all of us reader wait for Lily and James to be togther becuase once it finally happens i think it will be even more rewarding. I love how your adding all these littel sub-polts along to the story. After reading your stories i cant read another James/Lily story becuase you have me conviced that this is THE story of Lily and James. Thanks for all your hard work, I know that writing a story like this can be hard especially when you have such a ring of followers who want you to update up all the time.......its only becuase we love you. keep on telling such great stories.
Love From Your Fan,
Author's Response: aghhhh god that makes me so happy. thank you! i really am flattered. and the next chapter is actually in queue now, so it should be up soon!!
that was amazing.....and worth the wait!!!
This was a really good chapter! Im really exicted for the next one becuase you mentioned that youve been planning it for a while! when can we expect an update?
Author's Response: actually in like a couple of days--my hard drive crashed so I had to rewrite it all (:X) but i'm almost done!
i don't want to be pushy becuase it's only been a littel bit since the last chapter but when will the next one be out?? i only ask becuase i love your writing
Author's Response: it's in queue now! should be up soon :)
You are a fantastic writer. Each of the chacters are perfectly done and are consistant to jk's perseption of the chacters. How long until the next chapter?
Author's Response: aww thanks so much! and I actually just put it in queue, so it should be up in a couple of days :)
I know i just posted someting but i want to say a couple more things. Just how much i love both of these stories, stars apart and trickster. I hate leda so much!! i have a question, writer to writer. Do you sit down the moment you get an idea for a story and plan the detials and outlines for each chapter or do you just sort of go for it? You are really good at writing diloge witch i some times have trouble with. How do you get it to sound so fluent?
keep on writing! I think that the story is absolutly AMAZING
Author's Response: personally, i tend to outline...like there are some scenes i get that i like, and eventually i'll try to build a story around them...fanfic like this is easier because there are already certain plot points and landmarks that i know i have to hit, so that guides me. but basically what i do is come up with a basic outline for the whole story--in this case, it's actually three stories--so i know roughly what's going to happen over the course of the whole thing. the dialogue and the details just come as i write it, as do other side plotlines. i definitely don't wait until i have the entire story laid out in my head, since i know some of the best stuff comes once you're already working with the material, but i have enough there so i don't write myself into a corner. and i just read a lot, which in a weird, roundabout way, helps with writing dialogue. hope that helps, and thanks so much for your reviews!
Take as long as it needs to write the next chapter your right sometimes life is more important and don't let your reviewers make you feel guilty for living life first. Just one request make the next chapter a nice,juicy,long one that we can sink our teeth into! Thanks so much!
Author's Response: aw, thanks. and actually, the next chapter's in queue now :)
This chapter explained alot i really enjoyed it!! after reading other people's reviews im glad that im not the only one who is in LOVE with your stories and checks up everyday. To me this chapter was just sort of a climax point becuase we got to know how Sirius and Mary felt about the whole thing......leda is so annoying, even after what mary said i just cant feel bad for her. Thanks for another great chapter, and have a happy holiday season
