Jade is a Piscean teenager living in a small village in New Mexico, USA. When she is not traveling or procrastinating with her homework, she enjoys writing, reading, languages, dance, music, and art and crafts. She takes care of two adorable and wonderful siblings. Along with being an author, singer, dancer, guitar-player, outdoorsy hippi girl, and pseudo-mother, Jade plans to be the future director of her father’s business, The Tracking Project. She is a homeschooler enrolled with a prestigious curriculum and thus receives a prep school education in her living room. Hee.
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...
I'm dying here! You must update, or I shall promptly go insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love it too much,
Author's Response: I will update very soon but chapter 3 is annoying...there's a lot of stuff in it and I'm having trouble getting it through. I'll try my best to get it up before Mugglenet closes down for Christmas.
Oh, you know, I read Hattie's Always Stick Together. And tell her that I was almost crying because it was so (sappyness, yes, I know) moving. I loved it! Learning to Love gets a fave from me!
Author's Response: See!?!? Hattie is awesome - now you can see where the inspiration comes from. I urge everyone who's read mine to read hers because she is just so good!
Haha, I love that; I'm a "regular", lol. Thank you :). Have you ever read my fic before? Yes, get up chapter 6 soon, and then we can all be happy ;D. Ttyl! ~Jade
Author's Response: I think I might have flicked through yours...not sure - I'll go see. It's still in the queue!
Author's Response: Well, you've read my reviews and I think it is fairly clear that I love yours - it is really, really great! I think that you shall now be my friend. Anyway, so long friend xxLivsxx
Amazing! You are a truly gifted author! It was really, really good and interesting. I don't know why, but I see a lot of Lily in myself, especially in this fic, she's so real! Update again soon, I'm begging you! Lol, ;D —Jade
Author's Response: Wow - that is high praise indeed! Thank you so much! I feel like I should say that it is kind of all down to Hattie cos she inspired me and she is a really talented author herself. I really love writing this as well and without Hats I'd be missing out on so much - and plus writing's good for the old english coursework. Anyhoo - it's too late to submit the next chapter now before Christmas so hopefully I'll get some more reads over the break and that would be awesome. I'm up to chapter 7 now and they have just gone home for the summer (it's weird writing about 'heat' and 'summer breezes' during the middle of December!) so I really want to get started on thier next year. I've decided to take it all the way through to their death now (if all goes well). Thank you for liking!
This is great! The right touch of humor, romance and stuff. I love it :)! Update soon!
Author's Response: Yey! Another review! Thank you very much - the next chapter is in the queue!
This is great! I'm already very interested!
Author's Response: Awesomeness
What an ending! I loved it, of course :D. Anything with James and Lily kissing is awesome, lol. I really liked what Dumbledore said before dinner: “Speeches are like after dinner mints – they are for after dinner,” he said, a slight smile on his face. “Let’s eat.” That's so Dumbledore! I will definitely try to read the original version of this as soon as I unpack...yes, I love you that much, I reviewed it right away, haha. And thanks for the review you left on my last chapter, it made me so happy! Bye, another awesome job, Livs!
Author's Response: Yay, I always look forward to reviews from you (and the Hat, of course) and I feel very honoured that you read it straight away! I'm also very glad that you liked Dumbledore cos he's really hard to write and I couldn't think of anything funny and witty and clever for him to say...I was going to be like 'Well, we're all hungry so I suppose we should eat...' LAME! Anyhoo, I'm about to check to see if your next chapter is up... Glad you liked it xxLivsxx
AGH, IT'S SO GOOD!!! You are the bomb, Livs. I loved it!!! It's natural, it flows, it's amazing writing and the perfect balance between dialogue, description, and humor. My personal favorite part: "Sirius?" "Yeah?" "Don't hit on my mum." ~ classic! Haha. I'm extremely happy to read this chapter. How long has it been since I last talked to you...months?! This summer has been absolutely insane, I haven't had a second to read or write anything. If you'd noticed, I'd completely disappeared off the MNFF radar. But hopefully I'm back in the swing of things. I'm working on the second chapter of my story, so hopefully that'll be up soon. I know, I've said that a million times, lol. Anyway, this was a really good chapter!!! I am now appreciating your writing even more than I already did. Is that possible? Haha, sorry to gush, I'm just really happy to read this :D. Take care Livs! Great job!
Author's Response: Eeeeeeh thank you! Ah, it\'s so good to hear from you! I had noticed that you seemed to have vanished as I check on your story every now and then :D so it\'s awesome that you\'re back. And, yes! It\'s been months. My life has been OUT OF CONTROL! Ah, I don\'t know when I\'m going to be able to write any more. On chapter 21 at the mo which is good but i\'m totally stuck. Little case of writer\'s block, I think. AAH, it makes me panic. Anyway, glad you liked it after it took so long to get up here (5/6 months to be precise) so yeah! Rock n roll :D
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, dramatic! I'm dying to know what happens next! Oh, and there was one small thing: after Sirius and Peter left the classroom, you said that James was laughing at something with Remus and Peter, but I don't think Peter was supposed to be there. But that was just little! I love this story! Update again soon! Jade
Summary: James returns to Hogwarts, this time as a Professor. He meets and falls in love with a sixth year student, Lily Evans.
I totally agree with Canadian! This is an amazingly original fic, and I would love to see the next chapter! I see there's only two reviews on it, but don't get discouraged please! This is really good!
Update very soon! —Jade
Author's Response: thanks so much for the review. I decided to try this but when I submitted another chapter no one ever seemed to get it. so, if you like, you can find the story at Fanfiction.net here
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
Ah! Cliffhanger! But luckily there are five more chapters after this, so I get to read more :)! I noticed your writing style is different in this story than in the others...different, but just as riveting! I agree with Beth about the meaningful words, you really do make us see and feel everything as if we're there...not a lot of people can do this, so it's high praise ;)! I'm onto the next...
Author's Response: Awww, thank you! *hugs* You always make me smile. :)
Need I say that this story is in my favorites? Yay! You used Benjy Fenwick! That makes me happy, 'cause I always love to hear about old Order members...dunno why, maybe it's just the feeling of history. Anyway, very well done! I was pinned to the edge of my seat the entire time, and I can't wait to get on with this story. So I think I'll do that. ;D
Author's Response: Whee! Thanks! : D
Okay, you have fully and completely hooked my attention. I have this wierd feeling that I know who Hermione's going to meet...;) you sly devil! I love the way you built up the emotions until the time spell (which was beyond awesome, btw!). This was a really, really interesting chapter, and very different from most, so I think the cliche stuff is not an issue :). You rock my socks!
Author's Response: *blushes* You rock my socks as well. : D
Okay, I freakin' love this story!!! It's so awesome! Hermione is so lucky, in a strange and twisted way, lol. No words for how fantastic it is, but your style is delightful to read, and I will be back for more. But unfortunately, I have an immigration report to write, so I'll be back later :)! Awesome, girl, you're simply fabulous.
Author's Response: I have nothing else to say to such high praise except \"Thank you!!!\" Your encouragement is staggering, m\'dear, and I can\'t thank you enough.
Summary: Name: Jenn_Weasley
Challenge: Term - Holidays Abroad Yay!! Second Place!!! Thanks!!!
This is a really, really good fic. I love how you write! Congratulations, everything was perfect! —Jade
Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review! I'm glad you like it.
Summary: As the Marauders enter their seventh year, James has one goal: to get Lily Evans. Lily is just trying to stay away from him. Remus and Sirius are coming out with a plan. Will they all get what they want, or will they get back something completely unexpected?
Chapter seven is up!
Oh, thank YOU so much :). Yeah, Trickster's Choice and Trickster's Queen are my favorite! I will await the next chapter eagerly ;D. Hopefully it'll be up before Sunday, when I leave for a month! Love ~ Jade
Author's Response: Yeah, it's too bad Daughter of the Lioness books are over! I think chapter 3 is going to be validated on Monday, though, since I submitted it on Thursday.
Oh my gosh, I'm in love with this version of Lily and James! I love how you kinda didn't have much dialogue, but you explained everyone's feelings extremely well. I have to find out who that black haired girl with blue eyes is :). On to the next...
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, I've found that I write thoughts better than dialogue. You really like it? The black haired girl...well, you'll find out. Eventually.
Hey, I never would've thought this was your first fic unless I'd read your personal info, lol. Very, very good. I also love Tamora Pierce...which is your favorite? Yes, please put chapter 3 up soon! You're in my favorites!
Author's Response: Thanks again! It's awesome when people review, even more awesome when it's twice! You're in my favorites, too, for The Redhead Legacy, which is great! My favorite Tamora Pierce book, hmm... the Alanna books and the Daine books, though Daughter of the Lioness ones are also very good. Chapter 3 is in queue!
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! :)
Hey, that was really good! I like how you ended the chapter. James seems a lot different in this story than in others. On to the next :). -Jade
Author's Response: thanks a lot! chapter 3's on the way!
Hahaha! That was really funny and cute. "Not that far down, Mr. Nimmons!" That was great! Awaiting your next update, Jade
Author's Response: yeah, i loved that line too! thanks for reviewing, 3's on the way!
