Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
A great chapter, you really likes to create a lot of angst when it comes to Lily. But I think it's an interesting beginning you have written. James and Lily bonding when they looking after the killer...
I hope you update soon!

Great chapter, I really liked their talk in the three broomsticks. It was funny how hard James tried to get information from Tate without getting anyway..
Author's Response: I had a lot of fun writing their talk in the Three Broomsticks, so its good to know you liked it, too :) And poor James, trying and failing. Thanks for the review!

Summary: When Lily and James are both awarded the Head Boy and Head Girl position, they are forced to get along for the sake of their school. Unfortunately, neither Lily nor James are willing to let their guard down. What results is a story that is so passionately tumultuous, neither one of them ever realizes that they have not only crossed the thin line between love and hate...but they are now dancing in its depths.
As the entire magical world battles the oncoming threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Lily and James will have to learn that the only way to defeat the darkness is to find the light...in themselves.
Interesting start, I'm looking forward to read more!

Summary: Several years after the final battle, Dudley Dursley is struggling to come to terms with his past and the things he has done wrong. His life is turned upside down when he meets a charming young witch and is drawn into a path that leads him back into his cousin's world.
Great chapter, I loved Dudley reaction to everything magic in this chapter and his musing about war in the wizarding world was hilarious..looking forward to read the next chapter.//Osced
Summary: The Marauders have left school behind them just as war has fallen across the Wizarding World at last--quiet and invisible, but war nonetheless. And on the front lines is this small group of young Hogwarts graduates who have moved from pranking battles to something far more serious.
In this third and final installment to the James and Lily story begun in “Trickster” and “Stars Apart,” the Marauders join their friends in the Order as a part of what feels more and more like a fight they have no chance of winning. In the middle of it all, love grows and friendships break, trust forms and wavers, and warriors who are barely more than children must learn not only how to fight but what they are fighting for.
I really enjoyed the broomstick discussion between James & Lily, it was perfect James being obsessed with the broomstick and Lily complaining about the cold. But I'm not sure what I thought about the Will part, he's really portrayed as not so nice person. Had the feeling that he felt something more than attraction to Lily, but their conversion made wondering if it really was so.
Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Lily does sort of attract assholes, doesn't she ;)
I love the opening with Sirius as a dog. And I liked the chapter overall but I puzzle about the description of The Prewets, they're Molly's brothers, thus should be red haired. Or did I miss something?
Author's Response: thanks!! and haha aren't they? I guess I consider strawberry blondes redheads, but it's totally possible that i just have no grasp of what names of hair colors actually mean
