Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."

After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...

"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"

I think this is your best work , even though it is not my favorite ( I prefer chaptered stories ) But there is something about this story that just feels so ... right . The way you have depicted Ron , Harry , Hermione , and Ginny through Arthur's eyes is so well done . To the point where I would believe that you are Jo Rowling sitting in a cafe writing these stories under a pseudonym . You have a great talent writing and I can see it becoming a professional career choice for yourself , and I would deffinitly find time to read your stories if you were ever to publish .

Thank you for keeping me entertained with all of the beautiful stories you write , and I cannot wait for more A&S !

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and the kind words.
“Arthur” was my first attempt at first person pov, and it is one of those (unfortunately few) stories which arrived in my head complete in itself. The only struggle I had was realising that it worked best in first person.
I have several more Potterverse stories plotted and planned. But I’m working on some original stuff, too.
More A&S very soon, I hope.

this story is amazing , just like the rest of your stories , which ill admit- ive read all of. But this one is my favorite ! . I searched for a good canon story, because i cant stand anything else and this is what i found , and you do canon stories perfect . all of the characters are perfectly portrayed and your writing is beautiful. I cant wait for the next chapter to go up, but im sure it will be amazing !

thanks for keeping my harry potter love going (:


Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

I find it difficult (usually impossible) to read non-canon stories. I try to keep the characters in character. I currently have something of a backlog of Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny & Ron/Hermione stories. I will submit another chapter as soon as possible. But there are three stories ahead of it, so it won’t be until next month. Sorry

YES ! YES ! YES ! a new chapter !!! I really hole this means regular updates on this story again . it is the best fanfiction I've ever read ! actually , you are the best fanfiction writer I've ever read in general . (:


Author's Response:
Thanks for the kind words.

This chapter was giving me a lot of problems and I couldn’t figure out why. Finally, Ginny dragged Harry out of the kitchen and into her bedroom and, suddenly, the whole thing worked!

More soon (I hope). -N-

Author's Response: Aw thank you so much! I really appreciate that you thought it was "perfect" because I was afraid people would be like, "Wait...what?" It is important to the story, though (besides the fact that I've wanted to write this chapter since the story began). :)

love it . i plan to keep on reading , but i have a few questions: how many chapters do you plan on this being ? and how often do you update ?

i really like your take on the classic lily and james tale . (: . i promise to be a devoted reader , and i really hope you continue to write and to not give up on this story !

i cant wait to read more ! update soon (:


Author's Response: Hi! First of all, thanks for the lovely review, and I'm honored that you plan to be a devoted reader! :) As to your questions, I think this is a little more than a third of the way into the story. Unfortunately, I usually have time only to update once a month, although more often if it's a month with a school vacation in it. Also, though, I make sure the chapter is the best I can make it even before I send it to my beta, so that's part of the slowness in updating. I will not give up on this story, I can promise you that!

Reviewer: PongOTongTongERong Signed
Date: 07/01/12 Title: Chapter 27: Three Months Later

What to say in this review? Words, I guess... That is possibly where I should start(:

Mugglenet Fanfiction... One thing that during my daily trips onto sort of offended me, "how could anyone be stupid enough to think that they can write a story to fit into the amazing world that JK Rowling created?" Until a fateful day when I entered the world of fanfiction to test cold waters... And discovered this wonderful story. To say the least, I ate my own words and became obsessed . Seeing that this story had a prequel, Trickster- I couldn't put it down and then moved onto Stars Apart. My journey with this story began, and with it a dread of a word- INCOMPLETE. At a point, I checked daily for an update, and when it came I was happier than ever. But then the periods between updates became longer and longer ( understandable, you have a life to live and writing fanfiction for your readers pleasure, I'm sure is not at the top of your list ) but waiting was unbearable. I went on and read a million other fanfictions from every site I could find, but at the end of the day Stars Apart was always there for me to go check up on, because it was my first ever fanfiction. And alas, there is my tale of reading your story.

When I saw the words COMPLETE underneath it when I checked for an update today, it almost left a bitter taste in my mouth. I was so sad that something I absolutely love- is over. In four words to describe Stars Apart would be- I FREAKING LOVE IT. Your characters are amazing and you have built them up in a way that I cherish everyone of them. Your writing is beautiful as well.

I'm so glad that I was curious enough to open the button that said fanfiction on it almost two years ago, because it led me to this story- which is so amazing that it opened my eyes to the full world of harry potter fanfiction.

Thanks girl(:
Love you muchos.

Author's Response: awww oh my god thank you so much!! i'm so glad i could be your gateway drug ;) i actually am working on a third part to this story though!! i just want to get a decent way into it this time around while i can so that when life gets hectic again, as it undoubtedly will, i can still keep up with regular updates, since i know the stalling on the end of this one was pretty obnoxious. i'm only about three chapters into the next one so far but i'll get there!

I love coming across a story where it isn't lily hates james , and then things magically change . this was a great story and worth the read . leaving it up to the reader to guess if the felix worked was also genius . i'm sure it didn't , but it got lily to bring out her true gryffindor bravery (: thanks for the great read !


Author's Response: You are welcome! Thank you for the lovely review, I really appreciate it! I'm so glad you enjoyed this story, I had fun with it although I had my doubts too. I'm really glad you enjoyed my take on them. Thanks again! ~Gina :)

you are a beautiful writer . in the past month your stories have consumed me (: this story is like nothing else ive ever read on this site and it is very refreshing . but i cant wait for more chapters in your other stories (cough , aurors and schoolgirls , cough ) (;

Author's Response: Kelsey. Thanks for the review. I’ve definitely never read anything like this story either. I hit a snag with Aurors and Schoolgirls, :-( but I think I’ve fixed it. :-) I will be back on it when I finish “Tales of the Battle” (only two chapters left). -N-


Skydive by wauwabee
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 58]

Summary: "I don't wanna parachute into love,
No, I wanna skydive
And fall until we fly, live until we die together,
If heaven is my home, you could only make it better."

-Skydive, Jason Reeves

Seventh Year at Hogwarts is about much more than memorizing all the lessons for the upcoming N.E.W.Ts. It's about falling in love with someone you least expected to, about realizing who you are and what you want to do. It's about friendship, laughter, and the first steps towards a great betrayal. You strengthen the bonds already made and reconnect with someone you've had a fallout with.
Everyday Voldemort gets stronger, and the outside world becomes more real and more frightening. Lily, Marlene and the Marauders learn what it means to fall in love, what true friendship is, how to let go, and what is most important in life. Because not growing up is not an option. And some things are worth fighting for.

ahh , a lovely cliffhanger ! (:

I loved lily's bravery in this chapter . it showed her true gryffindor colors which some stories seem to forget . I mean , she did refute voldemort three times and that has to take true bravery .

I loved your point about her calling Peter "wormy" in the last chapter . the letter at grimwald place had always shown me her friendship with sirius but now I see it was with all of the marauders . so thanks for enlightening me (:

can't wait for the next update , so I can understand the cliffy !


Author's Response: Thank you! I always pictured Lily as a very strong person and it irritates me to no end when she's portrayed as the damsel in distress all the time. Even though sometimes that's okay, but she was a strong person. Her being friend's with Severus for so long is enough proof of that. She had to constantly stand up for him when it came to her other friends "None of my friends even get why I hang out with you!" And yeah, she defied Voldemort three times and gave her life for her son, even though she didn't have to die. And I always pictured Lily having a special and different relationship with all of the Marauders. She married James and had a kid, JKR said in an interview that Remus was "Always quite fond of Lily" and they were prefects together, She wrote letters to Sirius and she and James wanted to use him as their secret keeper. But I think her and Peter's relationship was very special. You only ever read of her using the nickname "Wormy" so I think that was something she came up with. Too bad Peter was a cowardly s*** and sold his best friends out. Sorry for the rant...I have very strong opinions and feelings when it comes to the Marauders Era. And I'm glad you liked my first cliffhanger! Because I hate it, I hate all cliffhangers, even when it's me who's doing them. Cheers : )

I first of want to apologize for not reviewing the last few chapters , they have been excellent like the rest (: I want to say that I truley appreciate this story and you as an author . I love that you have an easy plot that seems to flow .

The way that you treat James as a character is probably the best part of this story . You do not have him falling over Lily every second and faking a personality that will get Lily to like him . This is a common cliche which I am glad you've avoided ! I also love that you have James described as "careful, critical , and strong" and not just a huge goofball (for lack of a better word) .

So there is my long review as an apology for not review the last few chapters ! I live this story and cannot wait for more and the growing relationship between Lily and James ! (:

-kelsey !

Author's Response: Thank you so much! James is probably the easiest one to write about as I've taken several traits from my brothers and friends to make him. I'm the only girl in my family, with three brothers, and if there is one thing I've learned is that guys don't fall over girls the same way that girls do for guys so I can't write James that way because that is not how a teenage boy would do about wooing a girl. I'm glad you're eager to read more Lily and James but I hope you don't mind meeting Alice and Frank!

Reviewer: PongOTongTongERong Signed
Date: 04/30/11 Title: Chapter 4: Confessions

awh ! I really like that you have sirius as more mature than normal . I think that the letter harry found in grimwald place was proof enough that lily and sirius were friends , and alot of fanfictions leave that out ! I really hope you keep building this relationship as well as the obvious one between lily and james (;


Author's Response: Thank you! I didn't want Sirius to just be a total sex god like in some of the others, because he needed to grow up eventually. He's still going to have his moments but he's growing up. And the letter from Deathly Hallows was HUGE for me. I think Lily really developed a special relationship with all the Marauders. She wrote a letter to Sirius and he referred to Peter as "Wormy" for heaven's sake! It really bothers me sometimes that some fics just focus on the James and Lily development, and I feel like there was so much more. So I'm really glad that you like what I'm doing, the next chapter has been submitted!

Author's Response: Haha yay another Kelsey! And thank you so much, I get sick of Lily always loathing James at the beginning because I figure it took more than ONE summer for James to deflate his head, and Lily is a nice girl. I'm betting that once she saw a slight change in James' behavior she was willing to give him a chance at friendship at least!
