Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?

A Different Kind of Magic has been nominated for the 2011 Quicksilver Quills: Best Canon Romance. Thank you!
I've temporarily changed the rating to 3rd-5th years due to site glitches. I don't think there is anything graphic in the story thus far, but please read at your discretion anyway.
Loved this chapter especially the William Congreve quote. I can't wait for the next update.
Author's Response: Thanks!! Yeah, I thought Remus would say, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," but then I did a bit of research and realized I liked the actual quote a lot more. I'll try not to make it too long of a wait for the next chapter. :)

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.
Loved it so far can't wait for more. I really like the way that you develop the characters and give them depth. Plus props on the Beatles reference they are definitely one of the best bands ever.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I give everyone some kind of story because everyone HAS one. I would get so bored if I didn't write it this way anyway. I'm glad you liked my Beatles reference. They are my all time favorite band of all time and I will be sliding them in often. "All You Need Is Love" is the perfect anthem to Harry Potter anyway!
Definitely one of my favorite James/Lily story s can't wait for an update.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! That really means a lot!
Summary: As the first war wages on, James is just trying to win over Lily while still creating a decent amount of trouble.

Loved the first two chapters can't wait for more.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! I've already submitted the next chapter so it should be up as soon as the mods approve it! :)
Summary: The Wizarding world is changing rapidly, a new sect emerges, and Minerva McGonagall, Headmistress of Hogwarts for over thirty years, is about to have an unexpected visitor.

Looking forward to reading more the first chapter was great
Summary: We always knew that James Potter and Lily Evans would end up together, otherwise the Boy-Who-Lived would never have been born, but no one else did until the day they got married. Many people still believed the marriage would end in failure, but the two were deeply in love from a connection they developed during their seventh year. This is a story of that connection.
Great start, can't wait for more.
