different...you're right it's not very easy to understand yet. like what happened with lily's parents? or what was james so depressed about? or why did they split before school ended? or, most importantly, what going on NOW?! please update soon!
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
excellent, excellent! how's james going to smooth this one over? you've got plenty of reviews, update soon!

oh lucky me, number one!! two questions and i want them answered in the next chapter. 1. how will james and lily interact. will it be his fault, her fault, or both just love each other for being alive? 2. how on earth did sirius get there? update soon! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. As you know, I've already written 40 chapters, so I can't just change the next chapter to incorporate your questions. You will find out the first question not in the next chapter but in the chapter following that. And just to let you know: James had shown Sirius the letter he had received from Malfoy saying Lily was hurt. Therefore, when Sirius thought James was in trouble, he knew exactly where to go.
Summary: James and Lily-their seventh year. We all know what happens in the end, but what about the beginning? In their last year at Hogwarts, mysteries unravel, friends are betrayed, and, of course, couples destined to be fall in love.
yeah please clear up the whole bella making them dream and then waking up or whatever i still don't get what happened! anyway, Remus is being a prat, can't he see that he's hurting her more trying to protect her than he would be by not trying to protect her? anyway, update soon! great fic!
Author's Response: Yes, Remus has some personal issues to figure out. Don't worry about the whole confusing dreams stuff- I know what will happen and it will all make sense in the end! Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Adhara Jocelyn Black has always been torn between her loyalty to James Potter, her cousin Sirius's best mate, and Lily Evans, the sister she has never known.

oh i love the romance between james and lily....:D....it's so cute and right....but when will they figure out red eyes isn't after sirius and james any longer but james and lily? when does that come into play? and i wouldn't mind some more of the angsty fighting!.....no offense just stating my opinion.
Author's Response: Thank you.... *becomes almost as mysterious as the talented JKR herself* I can't answer those questions, mwahaha! ... but angsty fighting... I love angsty fighting... angsty fighting... bring it on!
Those Whose Hearts Hath Tried: the Chronicles of Lily and James Potter by norahpotter
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 41]
Summary: "Oh who can tell, save those whose hearts hath tried.” -Lord Byron. Inspired by a line of poetry by Lord Byron, this is the first in a series (hopefully) on Lily, James, and eventually Harry Potter. Lily and James' seventh and final year at Hogwarts. Post HBP with a bit of AU thrown in.
great! can't wait for more!
Author's Response: it's coming!
Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.
Wow. Just... Wow. That's quite the chapter. You blended the frustration and heartbreak Sirius was feeling into his motives for sending Snape after Remus well. Great characterization with Peter. And God, James, that poor, poor boy. His year has been an absolute hell, and now to ice the cake, Remus will be found out (or so he thinks). But where had Snape gone? I'm guessing Dumbledore? Hmm... dunno. And what about Lily? Sorry she had to break up with Branden, he sounded like a nice guy, but I think I'd prefer James. Which was what Braden thought Lily was thinking, so he dumped her. How'd she get the alcohol? And, dear Lord, how will she react when she's told what happened? Or will James tell her? How will she explain getting drunk on Firewhiskey to Dumbledore? James will probably go to the hospital wing, so will Lily stay there too? Or how will she get back to her dorm? Will James have to take her to his? When she was rambling off all of her hidden truths, I though she was finally going to say what you have written in your summary. But, just to torture us, you keep us waiting. Anyway, back to Snape. How will the two parties (Marauders vs. Snape) interact around each other now? Ugh, that's a lot of questions. Questions that you better answer in the next chapter. Hmm... You write well. You're discriptive just so we can get the picture, but you aren't so in-depth you're spouting off how each rain drop sounds when it hits the earth. Wonderful overall. ~*~ Danielle :)
Author's Response: Hi! Wow, many, many interesting and intriguing questions. Heheh, I'm very flattered that you enjoyed all the characterization of the characters, and also the level of description. Your review is very flattering. Thanks SO much! I hope all your questions will be answered in the future! Thanks once again!
Oops, sorry, I think it's Brendan, not Branden. Mixed the vowels. :)
Author's Response: Heheh, no worries there, lol! There are so many ways to spell the same name.
wow...omg omg omg...where's he going!?!?! omg i have to know!!!
Author's Response: Heheh, it's funny you say that because that is what chapter six reveals! Glad you liked it and thanks for reviewing!
beautful with the piano! wonderful way of having a moment between lily and james! but what did the note say? update soon! great job!
Author's Response: Hi there! You'll find out soon what the note said. Really, it's nothing too big, just very... subtle... Thanks for the review!
i agree with the last two, please, please, please don't make james like audrey! AND WHO'S JAMIE?! ugh, now that's bugging me! update soon!
Author's Response: Hehhe, sorry if I keep my readers in the dark, but I guess that's the way I write, lol! I just sent chapter seven in, so it shouldn't be too long from now. Thanks for reviewing!
Oh my gosh, this new site style is going to take some getting used to.
FINALLY! I love reading their first kiss. It's so... relieving after waiting and waiting for them to get together. You did it wonderfully, with a the whole opposites thing going on. Sun/moon, rain w/ no clouds. Very orginial discription. I hope there's another chapter; I want to read everyone's reactions!
Brilliant, simply brilliant, but you know what we need now? Some LILY/JAMES action! You've managed to avoid it in this chapter, but that only means that in the next you'll have to tell what happened to Lily. And will Audrey and Sirius part on at lease good terms? Oh, and I loved the last line about Audrey always understanding. Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Some Lily/James action? LOL! Yes, yes, I will tell about what happened to Lily... or will I? Heheh, you'll find out as soon as I update! Tehe. Thanks for reviewing!
I still don't like Audrey... I think she's starting to like James though if she doesn't already... I hope they don't hook up... and please update soon! I want to know what happens to Lily! And find out what she's doing in the first place. Is she going after Fang or is she checking out something else and just didn't want anyone to find her so she led Hagrid astray? I don't know, that probably makes no sense. Long story short: Love it! Update soon!
Author's Response: Wow! Your idea sounds fabulous! I understand what you're getting at. Pretty cool. You'll have to read the next chapter to find out though. Thanks a bunch for the review!
Oh... My... God... SIRIUS AND AUDREY! Oh my God.... That was a major turn around! The only thing I can say is update soon!
Author's Response: HAHAH! I love your reaction. I was hoping many people would be surprised. I'll be sure to update a.s.a.p! Thanks!
Damn, when are things going to start looking up for James? He was so close. SO CLOSE! *huffs out a breath* I hate Lily. I hate Brendan. Poor, poor James. I almost want to cry for him! Great chapter though, and great story! Can't wait for the next update!
Author's Response: Awww, I feel for James too. He just can't seem to get it right sometimes. Heheh, really glad you're liking it so far, and I'll update soon! Thank-you!
