Stars Apart by Willow Rosenberg
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 431]

Summary: The sequel to “Trickster”: The Marauders return to Hogwarts for their seventh and final year. Lily and James juggle more responsibility than ever, and James learns that convincing Lily to go on an actual date with him is harder than he would have imagined. Remus frets about post-Hogwarts life while Peter drifts even further from his friends. 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…

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I honestly don't know what to say about this story, except that it's absolutely and incomparably amazing. I meant to review more than this, but I was too caught--- I've been reading for the past two hours and I just haven't been able to stop. Your characters are all fantastic and unique: James is spot-on, I like Lily's more mischievous side, Sirius is hysterical and perfectly Sirius, Remus is amazing, Peter is at his most well-rounded (I don't think that I've ever read a Marauders fan fiction that has him so amazingly well-written), and... I can't think of what else to say, because I don't know how to put it all into words. I love the part with the Patronus in this chapter, and the whole Voldemort-confrontation seems completely plausible I think the only problem, for me, was that Lily's Patronus changed for James, but besides that, your story is brilliantly and fantastically written!

Author's Response: you know i've thought that before too, about the patronuses, but i actually read a jkr interview that i kind of loved the other day, where someone asked if it was a coincidence that James and Lily's patronuses were a matched set, and she said "No, the Patronus often mutates to take the image of the love of one’s life (because they so often become the ‘happy thought’ that generates a Patronus)." Which, aside from being really sweet, I thought made sense--James kind of always loved Lily, but she was the one who eventually fell in love with him more slowly, and associated him with happy endings more gradually, so it made more sense for hers to change, and was less of a girl-changing-for-the-guy thing (which makes me feel better!)

 

Fool Me Twice by Dawnie
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 110]

Summary:

Lily Evans is pretty, intelligent, vivacious… and accused of murder. James Potter is privileged, arrogant, and conceited… and her best chance at avoiding Azkaban. If only he wasn’t convinced of her guilt.

With a war looming in the background and evil slowly seeping into the wizarding world, seven years of secrets unravel, and two very different people find themselves caught up in a battle against privilege, intolerance, and greed.

But even in the darkness, and even in the despair, there is still friendship, and love, and hope.

An AMAZING story! It really reminds me of the Anne Perry books--- have you read them?

Author's Response: Thanks! I haven't ready any Anne Perry books, but I'll check them out.

 

The Stars As My Witness by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 9]

Summary: Past Featured StoryI cannot see their bodies, buried beneath the ruins of their life together, but I know they are there. I can imagine their green and hazel eyes, staring into the dark emptiness. It is all I can do to stay upright, filled with equal parts rage and grief as I gaze unseeing at the heartbreaking scene.

How did it come to this?

Great shot! This reminded me of the song "Stars" from Les Miserables.

Author's Response: Thanks so much! And I could see why it might remind you of that song! Thanks for the review, I appreciate it! ~Gina :)

 

While You Tell Me Stories by Dawnie
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 108]

Summary: In a world ruled by blood and money, James Potter has never once been denied anything he wanted, except Lily Evans. With neither blood status nor money, Lily can only rely on her vibrant personality to force others to see her worth. As their final year at Hogwarts ends and they are forced out of school, both find that the real world presents challenges that hadn't been expecting and problems they don't know how to overcome.

Great first chapter! I like your premise, and I like how you show both sides of James, the arrogant "toe rag" and the good, loyal friend he can be.

I love the Remus part in this chapter; he's one of my favorite characters, and I've never thought about how hard his life must have been, being a werewolf. I liked how Lily wanted to help him and how his friends do, too, even if they're not quite sure how to do it. Great chapter!

I love this twist! In the books it was Snape who discovered it, so now I'm really curious to see what happens. I liked Sirius and Lily's exchange over Remus and I can't wait to read more :)

I liked James's Quidditch tryout scene, but I wasn't sure that I liked how the Slytherin was the bad guy. Still, I enjoyed how you emphasized the whole rather than the individual, and I liked how Lily had to confront Emma's prejudice with the Wolfsbane potion.

Great bit on the right path versus the easy one! You've done a great job of developing Lily's character :)

Author's Response: Thanks for all the reviews! I'm glad you're liking the story so far.

Date: 01/27/12 Title: Chapter 10: Is That While You're Telling Me Stories

Great chapter! I don't understand what upset Lily so much, but I can't wait to read more.

Author's Response: Thanks! Lily's feelings will be explained some in the next chapter (and the one after it). So that should hopefully clear things up for you.
