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.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!

Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
Please continue this! I have been checking up on this gem for ages, and I adore it! Can't wait to find out more about Lily's "friend". Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you. I've got a bit stuck with this, it's true but I have a half written chapter somewhere so I hope to get back to it soon. ~Carole~
Summary: At school Peter Pettigrew was somebody. He was a Gryffindor, a Marauder and an Animagus. Peter Pettigrew was special. He would have died for his friends ... at school.
But what happens when he leaves the haven of Hogwarts? Peter is no longer one of four, but a man alone working at the Ministry. And with his friends caught up in life or death situations, is it any wonder that Wormtail gets overlooked.
This is the untold story of Peter's treachery.

Thank you to Lexi (Harry Rulz) for beta'ing this fic for me. It really is appreciated.
Hmm...very interesting. I had never thought about Peter having caused that many deaths, though it would make sense. Lol, men can be fools over a beautiful woman :)
Author's Response: Yes, my husband is a fool .... *snigger*. Glad you liked the story. I do see Peter's descent as a gradual one to the extent that he was caught up in it before he realised what was going on. ~Carole~
Summary: She had taken to walking here most nights since he’d gone. The utter loneliness of her life led her to flee her mausoleum of a marriage bed for the solitude of these shores, and Narcissa would stride up and down the coast trying to block out the memories that threatened to break her.
The title for this oneshot is a quote from Charlotte Gray.

Thank you very much to Ari (Royari) for her help in beta'ing this oneshot in super speedy time.
Disclaimer I am not JK Rowling but I doubt that surprises anyone.
A very interesting take on the Malfoy's, and I enjoyed it! Although, a nice revenge story wouldn't be amiss...
Author's Response: Ha ha ha - yes, well, that might happen some day. It's burning very slowly in a fic I've written about Dean Thomas, but I haven't updated in a while. Thank you for the review. ~Carole~
