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.
Hi =) i LOVE this story and waiting for you to submit more, but in the meantime, i started writing fanfiction on my own, and one story im thinking about continuing is in the maurauders era and i was wondering if i could possible steal the characters like Sonia and Mary? i dont know if you made them up your self or if J.K. wrote something about them or anything hahaha =P so if they ARE your's may i steal them? if not, i totally understand =) thanks -Snaps
Author's Response: Hi there, thanks for the review. As far as the characters go, I would rather you didn't use Sonia as I did make her up (same with Phyllida and Martha) but Mary Macdonald is a canon character,so she's fair game. :) Hope you don't mind and good luck with the stories you write. ~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.

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.
this was the first fan-fiction i have ever read, and i have completely fallen in love with your writing!!!! im reading "lions of gryffindor" right now and i just finished the last chapter you summited and im dying =P lol. you are an amazing writer, so pleaseeeee, continue writing =)
Author's Response: Thank you, Snappy! Your user name and review has brought a real smile to my face. I will keep writing, have no fear. Hmm, if you like High, then can I suggest 'Lavender blue, a Gryffindor true' which is sort of a prequel. It's about Lavender and Blaise. Thanks again ~Carole~
