Been reading HP fanfiction for a while but only recently signed up - really wanted to leave reviews after I read some awesome fics!
I'm addicted to James/Lily & marauder era fics and next generation fics, I listen to 70's/80's music but also listen to some awesome Harry and the Potters when ever I feel the need for some classic wizard rock :)
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Remus is so tortured and his story is so sad in parts :( but thats what make this fic so irresistable! love this story so much, please update soon you're an awesome writer :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much, RideTheLightning. I'm so glad you have enjoyed the story. I think Remus is one of the most heartbreaking characters I've ever read and I love him so much. *captain obvious* I'm sorry it has been so long between updates. I'm really terribly inconsistent at updating, though I have become consistently terrible at it! *captain obvious again* :*) I have a chapter finished, but have lost my beta. I'm searching for another and hopefully will have a chapter up in the near future. I hope you haven't given up waiting. :*/ Thank you for reading and letting me know how you feel about the story. It keeps me going.
Friendship, Love, and Pranks: The Story of the Marauders by Padfoot is MINE
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 1181]
Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!
They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.
...let's make ours worth watching.
Such a shame that this fic has just been left because it really is brilliant, please comeback and finish it.
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.
I really love this fic please keep writing it! Its fantastically written, you've got the marauder group dynamic completely - exactly how I imagined them :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I've actually just finished a new chapter and am just tweaking it as I type. I hope to concentrate on this story for a while, because I'd like to update more regularly. Thanks again ~Carole~
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

September 2012: HEY guess what I couldn't wait, and the third installment, "World Enough," is UP NOW under James/Lily. Or just under my name. Or at this link: http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=92131. Yay! :D
I love this story! its got really great pace, and all the personalities are spot on :) liked the idea about the patronus - doesn't let you forget about the other characters in the story. Really awesome can't wait for the next chapter!
It is Ginny’s twentieth birthday, and she wants to play a game with Harry.
ahahaha! made me laugh so much :D you're a great writer :)
Author's Response: Thank you. -N-
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy attend the Wizarding University of Paris the year after they graduate from Hogwarts. This is a sequel to the Dragon Does the Tickling, where Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy complete their seventh year at Hogwarts after the war.
another great chapter! love this story so much - its got a good pace so it doesn't feel rushed but still keeps a excellent plot to keep you reading - looking forward to the next chapter :)
Author's Response: Thank you for your nice review. The next chapter is with my beta. I'll post it just as soon as I get it back. Thanks, Jenny
He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.
Winner, Quicksilver Quill for Best Canon Romance. Thank you!!
Gah! I love this story so much, got to be my favourite james/lily fic on here - you've really got a talent! can't wait to see what you're writing next :)
Summary: Scorpius Malfoy, Rose Weasley, Albus Potter and Brianna Flynn, after a very eventful fifth year at Hogwarts enter their sixth year, hoping to have a peaceful time at last. However, their hopes remain just hopes, as new, strange events start occurring at Hogwarts, putting all their lives in danger. A dangerous game begins and once again, trust and faith are shaken at their very roots.
Will they escape again this time? Will they come out of it unharmed? Not everyone is lucky every time, after all. And this could just be one of those unlucky times where guilt conquers innocence…
This story follows the same universe as my novella, 'Black With a Hint of Red' but there is no need to read that in order to understand this one.
Wow! This is a really awesome fic, great plot already - i loved 'Black with a hint of red' so was really happy you wrote another fic to follow it up - can't wait for the next chapter :)
Author's Response: Hey, this is kind of on Hiatus but I promise to revive it! Thanks for the review!
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.

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.
That was awesome! really really great :) thought you got all their personalities down really well - also about how much harder it would be for someone under the malfoy name rather than the expectation that comes with the potter name - loved it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the story because I had a lot of fun writing it. :) ~Carole~
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.
Another awesome chapter! I really like the way you write remus, he's still very in character even though its AU - great job! :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you like Remus. Lately he's been one of the harder characters for me to write.
aww kinda sad and bitterly ironic at the end :( love this story, you've written it amazingly well!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, it was sad at the end, but there will be happy parts, too.
really cool story and great pace, i love james/lily fics and this one is really original - great job! looking forward to the next chapter :)
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you like it. I'm always a little worried about the AUness, so it's nice to hear people still like the story.
Summary: It's Halloween and the Head Boy and Head Girl are stuck in the greenhouses for detention. Will they escape the clutches of the deadly Devil's Snare…or worse, one another?
A lighthearted tale for Halloween, not to be read in the greenhouse.
Love this fic - was one of the first james/lily fics i read. You're one of my favourite authors and now i'm hooked on marauder era/ james&lily fics thanks to you! keep writing can't wait for your next fic!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed this one, it was great fun to write. I really appreciate the review and hope you enjoy whatever comes next! Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Summary: Not all of us Slytherins are proficient in the Dark Arts or take as much delight as Vincent Crabbe does in detention. When I watch Demelza writhe in pain in front of me, I feel sick to my core.
I need to make amends, but I don't know how.And she's not going to listen to me, is she?
Forbidden Colours is a love story set in that fated seventh year.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, or David Sylvian. I merely nick their words and attempt to add my own.
Thank you to Natalie for beta'ing the first chapter and Kara for the others.
I am Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff writing for the Great Hall Cotillion Challenge.
You're such an awesome writer! This is so great - it really feels like a missed moment from the DH book and would fit in with the story completely. I love the pairing - all those stereotypical gryffindor vs slytherin dynamics are written really well - another awesome fic :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much.I enjoyed writing this, although there was quite a lot I had to cut, sadly, because it was for a competition. Appreciate the review, very much. ~Carole~
