Summary: In a world ruled by blood and money, James Potter has never once been denied anything he wanted, except Lily Evans. With neither blood status nor money, Lily can only rely on her vibrant personality to force others to see her worth. As their final year at Hogwarts ends and they are forced out of school, both find that the real world presents challenges that hadn't been expecting and problems they don't know how to overcome.
I REALLY like this story- Can't wait 'til chapter 11 :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I finally got the next chapter submitted, so it should be up soon.
Summary: Summary: Christmas 1976. Lily Evans is standing in the shadow of a war that for the first time is affecting her Christmas spirit. A reprieve from the gloom comes in the form of a Muggle boy from her hometown, someone who the war cannot touch and is unaffected by the fear it causes. However, dark times lie ahead, and Lily begins to realise that there are some things she just cannot escape, however hard she tries.

Hi :) I'm suprised this hasn't got more reviews, as Battlefields is really good! It was a breath of fresh air after reading a few too many cliched Lily-related fics. The characterisation of Lily is my favourite part of Battlefields, although the characterisation of her family, Mark, Snape, Eileen, the Death Eaters... (on further reflection, everyone's characterisation is some of the best I've read in a while). Looking forward to reading more :) ~Andrea
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you liked the characterisation, I really enjoyed writing Lily and getting inside Eileen's head as well. Thanks :)
