hey, i'm sara, and i just adore harry potter! all seven books in the series are exquisite, and the fanfiction is generally pretty awesome too! some other favorite books of mine include: lord of the rings, pride and prejudice, wheel of time series, any books by shannon hale, terry pratchett, gerald morris or l.a. meyer, and many others that i'm inconveniently forgetting...
so, now that you know a little bit more about moi, i'll end by saying this little tid-bit: i love to read, i love to write and i love reviews. the three "r's". so how about i write, and you guys read and review, yes? great! oh, but please don't get angry at the three-month long gaps in between updates...
Summary: Everyone knows the story after that Halloween night that Harry Potter became an orphan... but what about before? James Potter and Lily Evans are two young people with an extroadinary story of bravery, friendship, and love. Join them throughout their seven years at Hogwarts and see how the past affects the future.
this is really good so far! you portrayed the characters really well, and it's nice to have a story begin in first year--lots start in seventh year, when all the "action" starts, but this explains in a good way why lily dislikes james. update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you, those were my reasons exactly for starting in the first year. I wanted to show how James and Lily came from such different backgrounds, and show how all the characters evolved as they got older. I'm glad you appreciate it! Keep checking for the next chapter, I e-mailed the staff cuz it's not posting ;( so hopefully they'll fix it!!
Summary: She laughs and turns, eyes set on the door on the other side of the kitchen. Her hand touches the doorknob, cold but inviting. Light envelops her as she steps out into her imagination. Open the door, child, her grandmother once said to her. Your imagination is waiting. On a beautiful summer afternoon, a child learns of her two worlds--reality and imagination--and what she must do only six years later in order to keep both in existence.
wow. this was excellent. the writing style was unique, but powerful. the story idea was good too, and one that i had never thought of too deeply. this is a wonderful piece, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you for everything! I\'m glad to see some feedback on my work.
Summary: Set in James and Lily's fifth year - this is their story. I promise you it isn't the whole 'James has changed - let's get married' but it does stick to getting together in the 7th year.
We begin just after OWLs and James' pathetic attempts to charm Lily go from bad to worse and not without the help of a certain friend...whose name sounds like furious...but with an i instead of a u...and no o...
very good story so far!!!! i can't wait for the next chapter, i need to find out what happens next!! jeez, though, lily is really being stubborn about james!!! anyway, great story, update soon, yadda, yadda, yadda. 1000000000/10
Author's Response: Wow thank you! Chapter 6 is stiiiiiilll in the queue...

interesting, i like it so far, but it is kinda confusing and short, but update soon, i would like to figure out what the story's about
Summary: Sirius Black thinks he’s got the perfect plan to get his best friend James Potter together with Lily Evans. But when the plan doesn’t go accordingly, chaos, confusion and mixed messages reign the halls of Hogwarts. Has Sirius ruined James’ chances with the girl of his dreams?
wow, this was such as short chappie and a cliffie too! all i can say is, sirius can be really dense sometimes, but i guess he meant well. yay for lily, though! she finally realizes she likes him! whoopee!
Summary: What caused Lily to loathe James and James to loathe Lily? How did they come to fall in love? What bumps and bruises did they acquire along the way? From hexing to comforting, this is the way it all started. Endure dangers and hardships, perplexity and mind games, and matters of the heart.
OH MY GOD THIS IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST STORY EVER!!!!!!! i seriously don't know if i can wait until january 2 til the update! by the way, merry christmas! i know i'm just a random stranger and a "merry christmas" doesn't really mean anything, but--whoops, i'm rambling. anyway, excellent story!
Author's Response: Thanx! And sorry, but you'll have to wait until January 2 because I don't even have the next chapter written yet! Plus, I want to get everything BETA'd. Merry Christmas to you, too! LoL. Don't worry, I can really ramble as well. Thanks again for the review! :)
Summary: The whole wizarding world is in uproar after the death of Dumbledore. All Death Eaters have a price on their heads. During these troubled times Hermione finds Draco Malfoy practically on her doorstep- with no memory of who he is or what he's done. Why is he there? Why does he wake screaming every night? And how can she deal with a Malfoy who regards her as his best friend... or maybe more?
oh my god!!!!!!! you cannot just leave us with a cliffie like that! that is insane! but so is this story--it's insanely good! i love everything about this story, so PLEASE update soon!
Author's Response: LOL! I\'ve a feeling I won\'t be very popular when the next chapter is up -- if you think this cliffie is bad...
Summary: Harry dreams about Dumbledore, and discovers something disturbing. My first fic. Be gentle, please.
I know everyone says it, but please review! I love to see them!
Sheeee's back! And she's better than ever because her story is already complete!
wow, really good start, i like the dream scene! update soon, please.
Author's Response: Yes, my one and only dream scene. I so hoped someone would like it.
Summary: This is my version of how Lily tells James she's pregnant. Filled with fluff and originality.
this is so cute! it was very good, i applaud you, and i loved that last bit about sirius having to do anything lily wants! that was great, especially "start boarding up for hurricane lily"! super job, 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
Summary: James returns to Hogwarts, this time as a Professor. He meets and falls in love with a sixth year student, Lily Evans.
interesting idea. i can't really decide if i like it or not...i'm rather fond of the non-alternate universe l/j stories, but this is very well written and funny. in fact, i think i like it a lot. yes, i do. please update soon?
Summary: She was lonely, and needed to get away. She thought Hogsmeade would make a good destination. As she entered the Shrieking Shack, she found the very last person she expected to see. She wanted to kill him, but just may end up saving him instead.
wow, this was a really powerful piece! the retelling of snape's love for lily was a bit too dramatic for me, but otherwise, it was well written and a good plot idea. the unsure ending especially was good, because you aren't sure if the order will accept snape, but it's not a cliffhanger, becuase you kind of intuitively know that they will. great job!

wonderful start! it's a very original story, and i like the idea of more than one author working on it at once. i can't wait to find out what happens next! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you! Thank you! You are our favourite kind of reader -- one who is kind enough to review! We have had a great deal of fun working on this together. Thanks again, Harriet Evans.
Author's Response: We like the idea of working with more than one author too! That way when things aren't working, we can blame it on Harriet, and when we're running behind schedule, we can blame it on Luna, and when the dragon is stubborn, they blame it on me. -- Poultrygeist

i really like this, i love your new writing style, and i'm glad lily is kinda ugly, lots of stories are so frustrating the way the say that beauty's not everything, but all the main characters are breath-takingly pretty. good job! update soon.
Summary: In the beginning of the Christmas holidays, Sirius Black runs away from home and will not return for twenty years. A warning for mild language.
wow, this is really sad, but really good. it's thought provocative and interesting, and it really makes you feel sorry for sirius, and even a bit sympathetic for regulus! great job!
Summary: What would happen if Harry woke up one day to find that he had spent the last seven years, not as a wizard in training at Hogwarts, but as an inpatient at a mental institution?
wow. this so SO so so cool! i love the idea, and i have no idea which reality is real, but i don't care! i need to read more! great job, this is a really unique idea.
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

wow, this is a really awesome start! it's really new original and delightful, and i can't wait to find out what happens next! you have lovely writing, and you have to update soon!
Author's Response: Not to worry, I WILL update soon. I'm working on the next chapter. Actually, I'm having a growing love affair with my computer, and when I'm away from it I keep scribbling in English on paper sheets. Yes, even in classes. What a shame.
very excellent story so far! i loved this chapter, especially lily! porr remus, though! :( anyway, great job, update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! Remus will cheer up, don't worry! Glad to see you again!!
Summary: Alright everyone, the end is here! *dramatic gasp* I really hope you all enjoy it, and don't forget to look out for my new story, Prologue: The Beginning. Thanks!
What's happening: It's their seventh year. James is desperate to get Lily, and, at the Hogwarts Express, promises to never ask her out again, and offers that the two become friends. When Lily accepts, James's spirits soar, but since she doesn't like him that way, and he can't ask her out, how will he ever have her for his own?
A special thanks to my sister Kitty and my best friend Emilea for listening to my ideas and reading the story in its entirety! Couldn't have done it without them!
And thanks to my new beta, Emily/LaneTechFreshie! You've been great!
Happy reading! :)
