Summary: James Potter is Head Boy and Gryffindor Quidditch captain in his seventh year at Hogwarts. He has three best friends and his life seems perfect--except that Lily Evans, the only girl he's ever loved, can't stand him.
Lily Evans is Head Girl and top of their class. She's always been disgusted by James' arrogance, yet she can't seem to stop blushing when he's around.
As their Head Boy and Girl duties bring them together, can James find a way to win Lily's love?
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.
I'm so addicted! This is fantastic. I hope James invites Sirius so he can at least say his goodbye! The characterization of everyone is nice, too. I enjoy it thoroughly.
Author's Response: Thanks for such a lovely review! As much as I love James, he doesn't always do the right thing, but you'll have to wait and see whether Sirius does get a chance to say his goodbyes. And I'm working very hard on chapter 12 to make sure it's at least as good as all the other chapters! :)

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
I'm a huge fan of your writing and this chapter isn't any different. I'm glad we're at a stage where Lily and James's relationship is starting to solidify and now the true problems of the dark era are starting to emerge. Do you also post to ff.net?
Author's Response: thanks! yeah i sort of figured that they've got enough problems, it's only fair to let them finally be happy for awhile :P and i don't, actually, this is pretty much the only place i've ever posted.
