Summary: The Hogwarts Express brings mystery and mischief in the Marauders' seventh and final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter are facing a year of N.E.W.T.s, romance, intrigue, and, of course, a little mischief-making. There are plot twists galore! James (in the midst of saving the world) continues desperately to try to woo the incorrigible Lily Evans. Sirius deals with family problems while dealing with his incredible popularity and good looks (the horror!). Remus is provided with a backdoor to avoiding the prejudices of the inevitable real world, but at what cost? (dun-dun-dun) And Peter...well, Peter gets himself a girlfriend (but don't worry: it doesn't affect his hero-worshipping of James...or DOES IT?!)
the entire thing was bloody brilliant. boy, you freaked me out. you're sick! but in a good way. i loved it.
good read though...
Author's Response: hahahaaaaaa i\'m sick in not-so-good ways too, i think, but thankfully that doesn\'t come out over the internet (i mean, being a phantom and all, i have much sickening fun scaring the wits out of hapless opera-goers ::evil grin::)
Summary: In this AU story, Ginny Weasley is expelled from Hogwarts for her role in the Chamber of Secrets affair. Denied the magical life that is her birthright, her only option is to cross the Atlantic to attend an American wizarding school of dubious reputation. A long and frequently difficult journey through exile has begun.

Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
ok... you lost me around "breakfast"....
Author's Response: Um....the first mention of breakfast, and you\'re lost? hm...
who says "gosh darn" nowadays?
Author's Response: I say \"gosh darn\" thank you very much! I\'m glad you read my Author Notes. Haha.
