Summary: James Potter usually accepts dares without batting an eyelash. However, this time, while he’s on a dare, he's also on a personal mission. But first, he’s anxiously waiting for Lily to turn up. What does Lily have to do with this dare? And what will she say when she finds out?
Before you start commenting that the dare was unromantic, please please read the 2nd sentence of the 4th paragraph. I clearly state that "James was steeling himself to do SOMETHING HE WANTED TO DO VERY MUCH EVEN WITHOUT BEING DARED TO". In other words, the dare was the catalyst, not the cause. It only served to spur him into action; it didn't give him the intention of doing what he did (I'm trying not to give out spoilers here, so read to find out what - though you can probably guess ;)).
This was the first fan fiction I read. That was when I wasn't a member. It is creative and well written. Lily and james are my favorite characters. Good job! Keep on writing!

Author's Response: happy birthday!
Summary: Professor Sprout has just given 7th year Gryffindors a new project, where the class, divided in pairs, has to raise a rare plant. What’s gonna happen when Lily finds out who her partner is? And how will she survive in his sole company?
If we killed you, you wouldn't be able to update.
Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione make a trip to Godric's Hollow to visit the Potters' graves. There, Harry speaks to his parents for the first time, and in so doing, discovers that the dead are never truly lost. (One-shot. Bring your kleenex.)
AWW! I adored it! I started crying! I can't say you didn't warn me about the kleenex. I love sad stories like these!! 10/10
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.
OOC means out of character... Great story though! It's in my favs!
Author's Response: Yeah i just figured that out. I forget what I thought it meant, but oh well... I think I thought...Other Character. It was just kinda like glance at it and boom! This idea pops into your head...One of those types of things. Hehe.
OOOO! You need to update soon! I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: mUaha. I\'ll get that chapter in queue soon. I promise. I\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: You can't choose who you fall for, it just happens. Like it or not, fate will always have its way...
Hermione's had a crush on Ginny for many a year now. And Ginny's just coming to realise her feelings for Hermione, when looking for an escape from the terrible night before. The two might find themselves facing the most wonderful christmas ever. But the real question is - how long can it last? The story is finished. It leaves on a bit of a cliffhanger, but you know how it ends.
this is a great story! update soon

You are a very talented writer! I want to see how this story ends. Keep writing!
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.
ohmegahh! Lily's gone! Update soon, or else we may never know what happened to dear Lily!
ooo! Is this the chapter where lily is found? Oh please, let her be found and james and her to make up! They need to get back together! It is ripping me up not knowing that they are together forever at the moment! gahhh!
Author's Response: Sorry to disappoint, but if it\'s accepted, it\'ll be no more than a filler. I don\'t exactly know how or when I\'ll have the cavalry rush in and take her to safety, or if I will at all. I\'m working on several possible angles, and trying to find the most likely and most believable one. Nice to know I got you hooked though. :)
I loved all of it!
Author's Response: Glad to hear it! :)
This is getting really good! I'm excited for the next chapter!!!
Summary: James returns to Hogwarts, this time as a Professor. He meets and falls in love with a sixth year student, Lily Evans.
This is a really unique way to write the story of Lily and James. Good job, and update soon!
Summary: In James and Sirius’s fifth year at Hogwarts, they encounter a problem: Sirius is extremely attracted to James’s girlfriend, Lily. As their year passes, James, Sirius, and their friends encounter a good deal of love triangles, broken hearts, misfortune, and even some adventure.
UPDATE: 6/14/06. Thanks to everyone who's read so far. I should have another chapter submitted by the end of next week. Please review, because any ideas that you have could come in handy since I have the general plot planned out but not the fillers. Thanks again!
Everybody is falling in love w/ eachother! GAH! lol! crazy!
Author's Response: Haha, I hope it\'s not too confusing!!! I wanted a love triangle and ended up with a sort of love polygon. =]
Summary: James Potter is running out of time to win the heart of Lily Evans. In a last attempt to make her his, he formulates a secret plan.
Will the whole thing blow up in his face? . . . Or will Lily have some secrets of her own?
Warnings: Excessive amounts of romance, jealousy, and PMS.
I'm a'comin with the newest chapter!!
Aaaaw! I wanted to see what happened with them! next chapeter i guess.
Summary: New year, new start, new feelings. Has James' newly deflated ego and mature attitude finally won over the heart of Lily Evans? With a mixture of embarrassing situations, falling out of bed, and roaming hands, this year could be an interesting one.
My first fanfic everybody, so any criticism is very welcome! enjoy!
Nice kiss. lol
Author's Response: :) thanks!
Summary: Lily Evans has told herself time and time again that she is NOT falling for that dratted Potter boy. But what happens when a dance changes all that? PG-13 for mild language and implied intimate situations. A/N: 1000 reads! Amazing! Still, reviews are always welcome
nice story! Very original
Author's Response: Thanks for the compliment! I don\'t know if it\'s very original though, the whole masked-ball-plot is fairly common. This is just my twist on it ;)
Summary: As Lily and James enter their last year at Hogwarts, many hidden feelings emerge. But when tragedy strikes, will Lily ever be able to tell James her true feelings? Or will it be too late?
Reviews are greatly appreciated. There's an e-cookie in it for you. ;D
This is a GREAT story! Add more chapters! I definitely wanna see how this one ends!
Author's Response: Thank you! I am so happy you like it! I have a lot of different ideas on how it should end so even I\'m not exactly sure how it\'s going to end! =) I have the next chapter done. I just need to get done by my beta and I\'ll post it.
Summary: It's Lily Evans and James Potter's fifth year at Hogwarts and they're just friends. Nothing else. Or so Lily thinks...but thanks to Lily's best friend Jackie, as well as the the Marauders, it's not going to be that simple. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the comedy of errors that was Lily and James' relationship.
A/N: whoo-hoo! chapter four's up!! another long and slightly pointless chapter, but now you guys know why the effect of dumby's charm was so strong to lily. anyway, next chappie should be finished and submitted soon, so keep on reading and reviewing!
I like it how you make mcgonagall out to be young, instead of old. It is a different way to express things. Very unique! I love it!
Author's Response: thanks, i\'m glad you liked it! i figured mcgonagall should be young cause otherwise she\'d be like 100 in harry\'s time, lol! thanks for reading (and reviewing!)
I love this story! I like it how Lily doesn't hate James! It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside! :)))) 343259875798/10! Kudos to you!
Author's Response: thank you! i know this story\'s a little au, but i got tired of all the same old same old lily/james stories, so i decided to do something different, cause there aren\'t as many stories when they\'re friends. anyway, i\'m happy you liked it! thanks for reading and reviewing.
