Summary: It is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.
James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.
The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.
Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.
This is a Marauder tale.
This is a story of what made them special.
This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!

Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
wow! love this! i cant wait for the next installment! just wondering... do you write any of your own fiction? like do you have any books published? because if you do i totally want read them and if not you should! you are so great at creating believable characters and suspenseful conflicts. i love all your fics
Author's Response: OOOH, thank you very much. I really do want to write my own fiction. I started one about two years ago but it's become very unwieldy (and far far too long at 250k and counting), so I've shelved it. However I am wrestling with several ideas and would love to get them down on paper. :) ~Carole~
Summary: Scorpius Malfoy is the Seeker for Slytherin. Not only that, he's the best Seeker at Hogwarts, and it's his catches that win matches. But this year things are different; Albus Potter has switched to Chaser and the new Gryffindor Seeker is his annoying little sister.
This is the story of how one match and one missed catch can change your life.
This story was accidentally deleted, so is being resubmitted ... very very quickly.
SQUEEEEE! High won the Best Next Generation QSQ award. Thank you so much for the everyone who has helped, either by beta'ing or encouraging me.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I'm not sure who I am at the moment, but there must be some Arthur Weasley blood in me.
Thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for doing the vast majority of the beta work on this, and Apurva for work on the early chapters
Squish for Natalie, Jess, Kara and Bob for helping me sort this out.
Due to an archive hissy fit regarding any story with a rating about 3rd-5th, I have temporarily lowered the rating on this story. However, I have NOT changed the content. This story is still a 6th-7th. You click at your own risk.
Hey. I just wanted to let you know how much I adored reading this fic. I started reading it when you were half way through and needed to know how it ended so i kept checking back every few weeks to see if there was a new installment. It was the first fic I read and now I'm hooked on mugglenet (check out my user name which was inspired by this story!). I have read a bunch of your other fics and enjoy them all! you are a fantastic writer! any way thanks so much for writing this one! i loved the ending but i am sad its over!
Author's Response: Hi Carrie, Thank you so much for the review and your kind words. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the story. I'm sad it's over too, so I'm pretty sure this won;t be the last thing I write about the Next Gen kids and certainly won;t be the lat I write about Scorpius and Lily. Thanks again ~Carole~
