Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
whoa, i haven't reviewed in forever...fantastic job!!! i can't wait for the next chapter to be accepted!
Author's Response: Haha. Thanks. i don\'t mind the wait.
Summary: Wow, second fic to be accepted! If you've read my other story (Love Always, Ginny), you'll notice that this story is better developed and much longer in text.
Set in Lily and James's fifth year at Hogwarts. Story follows their last three years and how they learn to tolerate and love the other. Literally follows their sojourn from Hate into the Love we all learn about in the series we all enjoy.
Contains a few characters that are my own creation as well as the obvious ones created by the almighty JKR. Hope you all enjoy! Hugs and kisses to all my readers!
I hope the moment for Lily and James comes soon! Great job, you are a really great writer!
Author's Response: Thanks for the complement! Check out my other story too!

This was soo good! I am so gald I found it! Great job!
Oooh! I love the way you wrote this! I really liked your ending, too! You did a fantastic job with this chapter! I liked the way you wrote little funny comments in...(ex: his bruises from Lily, haha, that was great. yeah, i'm weird like that)
Anyways, good job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, I appreciate the r&r!! Please encourage others to do so, as I only have two reviews so far.
Summary: Celeste Lopes is the perfect girl for any type of guy. She's a Metamorphmagus actually and many girls want to be just like her, but they do not know what she is. Sirius Black has had his eye on her all year even if he has various relationships at hand. How do they both realize the meaning in this phrase (the title of the fic)?
Awesome job! I can tell this holds quite a lot of promise...you did a great job! I can't wait for more.....
Author's Response: Glad to hear that. I'm working on editing the second chapter(it hasn't been accepted yet, but I shall be ready to put it in this week!).
Summary: Set in James and Lily's fifth year - this is their story. I promise you it isn't the whole 'James has changed - let's get married' but it does stick to getting together in the 7th year.
We begin just after OWLs and James' pathetic attempts to charm Lily go from bad to worse and not without the help of a certain friend...whose name sounds like furious...but with an i instead of a u...and no o...
aww! that was so sweet! it was really funny and the ending was perfect!!
Author's Response: Thank you! It's really hard to make your writing funny cos you don't know if everyone will find that funny or just you...so yeah it's good that it's funny! Livsxx
One-shot. James decides to try to get Lily one last time.
Awww...that was really really sweet! Great job! I wouldn't change a THING.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! *My first review for this story* You're so nice...thank you!
I really wanna know what's up with Prissy! haha...I loved the flirting in this one. Great job!
Author's Response: hehe!! i liked writing the flirting!! you see a bit about prissy in the fourth chapter (i just sent it in), and a TON in the fifth (i'm working on it) thanks for reviewing!!
You're a fast updater. Is that a word? Anyways, this chapter was my favorite! I liked that it showed that Lily wasn't perfect and lost control of her temper. And I loved it when James asked her out again. haha...10/10
Author's Response: haha...i lyk that!! i'm getting these chapters up quickly because i had already written chapters 1-5. all i had to do was send them in!!! i think you're my favorite reviewer...you review all the time, and tell me what you liked!! that sounded weird...
Great job! I really liked it! Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! This was my first fic, so I was a bit worried. :) The next chapter's on the way!
np...it's really hard to find a decent lily/james fic these days! i thought i added you to my favorites, but i checked and you weren't! so i put you in there. haha...so just to let you know, ur in my favorites and i'm telling my friend (an obsessive fanfiction fanatic) about ur story. whoa...this is a really long comment!
Author's Response: i just read ur fic!!! it was good...!!!!
Poor Cal! Now you made me feel bad for her! You are really good at summaries...lol. Seriously.
Author's Response: Eh, Cal tends to overdo the dramatic reactions like that. Of course, that's because I let her.... Really? They always seem short to me.
Wow, good job. My favorite part was when Lily slapped James' hand. Brilliant!
Author's Response: Thanks for adding a favorite part thing, those help me decide future humor.
HAHAHA! I think this was my favorite chapter...it started off amazing and ended brilliantly! I loved the funny lines throughout the story! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you. It's better than my other chapters so far, I think.
“I… er….” Lily was flustered. “He snogged me first!”
Really really good so far! I love your story!!
Author's Response: thanks.
Summary: James, with a little help from friends Felix Felicis and Sirius, asks Lily a question one morning....
That. Was. Awesome! I had to add it to my favorites. LOVED the ending. Great job!
Summary: Sirius Black thinks he’s got the perfect plan to get his best friend James Potter together with Lily Evans. But when the plan doesn’t go accordingly, chaos, confusion and mixed messages reign the halls of Hogwarts. Has Sirius ruined James’ chances with the girl of his dreams?
That was really awesome! Yay! Update soon, because I'm dying to find out what happens next!
