Summary: Past Featured Story

Diana has always been different. She can make objects move without touching them. She can command animals without training them. She always seems to know when someone is lying to her. And strange things always seem to happen when she's sad or angry....

But even when the enigmatic Professor Dumbledore comes to tell her that this is all normal for someone like her, there are other things that still set her apart. She has no memory from before age eleven. She hears voices whispering to her when no one is there. And there is something more sinister lurking inside her, something that reminds Dumbledore of another student he had so many years ago....

Diana's birth was no accident. Someone has dark plans for her, and unless she can solve the Riddle of her past she may just become the very thing she strives to destroy.

Thank god she's become friends with Lily. The poor kid's going to need good friends. I like how you've made it so similar to Harry's first meeting with Ron and Hermione on the train.

Well-written! My only criticism: I think blast-ended skrewts were created by Hagrid in an illegal breeding experiment (in Goblet of Fire). So they probably would not have existed at the time of this story.

Author's Response: Wow! My only response to that is, ten points to the House of your choice! Neither me, my beta, nor the mods caught that, but you're completely right. I changed it accordingly. Thanks for reviewing! :)

 

We'll Be Young Forever by Proserpina
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 57]

Summary:

“You and I, we'll be young forever!” *

After a long, interesting, sweltering summer the Marauders are back for their sixth year, and they feel as though their teenage lives have only just begun.

James has been pursuing Lily for years, and he sure as hell isn't going to give up now. Sirius might actually be falling in love (though of course that can't be possible, can it?), and Remus is struggling with problems in his own family. Meanwhile, Peter has to decide how much worth he can put on friends who he will never live up to. And then there's Lily Evans, a girl who's starting to fall for the very man she swore not to. Diana McKinnon, her best friend, keeps finding herself staring at a certain grey-eyed Gryffindor, even though every piece of logic she has tells her that he's trouble.

But even though there's the looming danger of NEWTs, pranks, oily Slytherins, and physical education, a much bigger problem has presented itself. The Marauders' sixteen-year-old world isn't the safe place it used to be. There are rumors of danger and dark magic throughout the school, and of a powerful dark wizard named Voldemort. The Gryffindor sixth years have to decide where their true allegiances lie and how much they are willing to sacrifice for a war that seems impossible to win.

*Title and quote taken from the lyrics of Katy Perry's summer hit Teenage Dream.

Note 3/26: Ok guys so I know that I haven't updated in forever, but I promise I'll finish the story! I'm struggling with some stuff, but hang in there, I haven't forgotten.

Lots and lots and lots of love, Olivia

Very well written! Looking forward to reading the rest. =)

Again, well written, but I do have a critical comment:
I think Lily would have been more sympathetic on learning of Sirius' abusive home situation.

Excellent! It's past midnight but I can't stop reading.

Enjoyed it! I'm glad you included a gay character.

 
Reviewer: ProfessorZah Signed
Date: 08/20/11 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter Seven: Letters and Flying Lessons

Excellent! Naturally Remus would have feelings for Lily. He's lonely, she's sweet, and they spend time together as prefects. Why didn't I think of that?

Author's Response: Thank you for all the wonderful reviews! I'm glad you liked my idea with Remus and Lily. Jo said in an interview that he was very close to her, so that's how I decided to interpret it. Good point about Lily being more understanding towards Sirius, though I also think that she does feel sorry for him, but doesn't want to admit to herself that maybe he's not all that bad. As for Annalisa being lesbian, I feel like that is an appropriate thing to add to a story like this, because it's about teenagers finding love and making choices and all. Thank you! -Olivia

As the world around them darkens, Lily, James and the Marauders struggle to find reasons to live - friendships, love, and the future.

I love this story. James and Lily are both well-written. It completely makes sense that they would miss their relatively carefree student days. It also makes sense that most death eaters would have poor duelling skills; like many gangs, they fight only when they outnumber their opponents.
