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?

Ah - Terrific!! - I actually believed for a minute that James will join the Death Eaters! O.O - I loved the argument between Sirius and James - well, James didn't really aruge back - but yeah xD - can't believe it's about to finish! :(
Author's Response: That would be an interesting way to take it...but no, he won't. I'm glad you enjoyed the Sirius/James stuff, I could totally see that happening! Thanks so much for the review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Again, Great chapter!! The plot's really interesting - and as always - a cliffhanger ! Is this going to be the main plot through the whole story??? I wonder how are you going to get Lily out of this! xD
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes, this is the main plot - it's a short story. I'm glad you enjoyed the cliffhanger, there are a few more. I appreciate the review - hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
Amazing! I LOVE this chapter! Some questions though - how old are they now? And how many chapters are you giving this story? Loved it! - wait! Voldemort has hair?!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! This takes place less than a year after they've left Hogwarts, so they are about 19 years old, I'd say. I'm planning for six chapters and they are mostly done. And since we don't know what Voldemort looked like before he lost his body, I gave him hair. Weird, huh? ;) Thanks again for the review, I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
Summary: As N.E.W.T.s quickly approach, Lily Evans struggles with her once-perfect boggart spell, while James Potter cannot seem to master the Patronus Charm. A strange journey through a long-lost room within the castle guides the two Heads through their troubles, leading them to an unexpected end where they find much more than the ability to master their magic.

I love this! Brilliant, brilliant-I love it.
It's so amazing that James is actually struggling with something aside from getting Lily to like him-let alone struggling with finding happy memories!
And I adore the choice of Lily's Patronus! I liked the bit of symbolism, too.
Keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so far. Of course, Lily's choice of Patronus was not my idea, but I thought it would be interesting to use it here *before* she knows anything about James. I hope you enjoy the rest, thank you again! ~Gina :)
