Chapter 6 is 40% complete
I just read the whole story, and I must say, I adore it!
It's a very good idea. It is original and compelling. There are complete squee moments and then ones that just make you want to smack your forehead.
You've really made it so Lily and James are the perfect match You've portrayed their relationship and James' character very well. I absolutely love James in this story. What I wouldn't give to be Lily!
I can't wait for the next chapter. This is a definite favorite. :)
Summary: Due to a a little mishap in their 5th year, Lily and James are not speaking. However, they are forced to interact due to a Divination project that requires randomly assigned students to write letters to their anonomous "inner buddy." The year brings laughs, friendship and maybe even a newfound love.
This is a great chapter! Good to see the chicken incident from James' POV.
"James Potter had pulled a prank on Lily Potter" She's not yet :)
I love how James loves the name Harry. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Yeah I wanted the readers to see James perspective, so you got a chapter about him.
Summary: James Potter and Lily Evans weren't exactly buddies at first sight. They began virtually as enemies. Gradually, however, they came to respect each other and like each other at Hogwarts. Somehow, that like turned to an eternal love.
Described through the memories of all who knew them, this is the story that follows them through the seven years in Hogwarts, as their rocky relationship develops into a bond that becomes the envy everyone. This is the story that describes the difficulties that they encounter during the terrible years of You-Know-Who's reign. This is the story of the parents of The Boy who Lived. This is the story of the love between Lily Evans and James Potter.
Chapter Five (Friends?) posted - Lily walks into the world she never knew.
Sorry for the (very long) delay.
I just started reading this today. I love it! I love the flashbacks at the wedding, and James and Lily's first meeting. This chapter was great!
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.
I loved your story. It was so good. It's one of the stories that sticks out the most. I remember the Christmas scene most, it was really well written. And I loved Audrey, she was a great character. I really enjoyed it. So thank you!
Summary: James is going to be stuck with Lily for the entire summer...wait...isn't that supposed to be a good thing? In between all the angst and indecision, will these two EVER get together? Hmmm...maybe with a little help with a birdie named Sirius...
I smell party!! Haha. That'd be great. Good chapter, although the Kat thing was kinda confusing.
Summary: Sirius wants to find his soul mate and asks James's permission to date Lily.
*Sighs happily* I just read the whole story and loved it! I really needed a good romantic story and have to say, it was the perfect for the job! I've never read a Lily/Sirius fic and this was a great one. I loved Sirius's character. It was cute and funny how he was just looking for his "soulmate".
I love how you had both Sirius and Remus sacrifice for friendship. I also love how you had it James/Lily the whole time, well, underlying. Throughout the story, it was obvious that Lily was James's and just trying to make his jealous (when she asks if James is looking at her).
The whole thing was just *great*. And I loved the last line! It was perfect -- a fantastic way to end it.
I feel bad for Sirius, but to me, it seems that Tamara is better for him. (Since Lily is James's).
It was a really fresh idea and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It wasn't the average story and I really liked it! Great job and thanks for the great read! Made my night much better. :D
Summary: No one knew, and no one guessed, what little Peter kept suppressed.
A wildly AU one-shot exploring the scenario: what if Peter had never turned traitor? (Mild HBP spoilers.)
I found this story very interesting. I liked the way you had things change since Lily and James died. Obviously, things would be different, but it was interesting how Peter was completely different.
I also think you did a very good job of showing how Lily, James, Sirius, and Remus' characters changed with the loss of Peter. I also liked the subtly of it all, everything was revealed slowly, which was a good technique. Everything was also very simple. You got the point across in a few words, while managing to be descriptive and capture the mood.
I really liked this -- "The others are dead. That is their tragedy.
Peter is not. That is his."
Overall, this was one of the best AU stories I've ever read. Excellent job!
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!
Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!
Nominee for the Best Humour Award in the Quicksilver Quill Awards! Many thanks to all who voted for it!
I love your story. The Un-Named Gryffindor Girl was too funny. Can't wait until the next chapter. Simply hilarious.
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m gald you\'re enjoying it!
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.
Can't pretend I'm not a little grossed out. Ick, Severus. I thought James was going to catch them though! Maybe Sev will tell him to make him mad. Good chapter.
Author's Response: Thanx. :)
Summary: James returns to Hogwarts, this time as a Professor. He meets and falls in love with a sixth year student, Lily Evans.
I really like this story. It's a bit strange. James as a teacher to Lily as a student. It is kind of creepy too, for James to have the crush. But the writing is really good and I'm definitely hooked! Keep going!
Summary: Lily Evans looks like your average goody-two-shoes on the surface, so why would James Potter, trouble-maker extraordinaire, fall for her? What if James saw a side of Lily that she rarely let anyone see? Get ready to see Lily teach James a few lessons... and vice versa.
Oh my god. I knew it was James the second he started acting strangely. Good ole Polyjuice Potion. I love the twist though!! That was great. Can't wait for the next chapter!!
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!!
I'm glad this chapter was all Lily & James. It was really good!! Can't wait for the next one
Really good chapter. Does Lily persue Brandon? Ahh. I was actually just thinking about this story today...funny that you updated. I really liked it!
"From watching Snivellus stick his greasy tongue down the throat of someone other than Lucius Malfoy."
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 my gosh. Haha. Leave it to James. Nice chapter. I like the little twist thingy you have. Lily is now...an owl? Can't wait to see what happens!
Author's Response: Thanks! My first, and, so far, only reviewer! Yeah, Lily really wanted to be an owl for some reason. But staying an owl? I don\'t think it\'s what she had in mind. So yeah, I\'m leaving it to James now.
Summary: Lily Evans has a dark secret that will ultimately destroy her entire world. But only if Voldemort doesn't do it first...
This is the tale of James and Lily's struggle of love and life during the Time of Shadow--Voldemort's First War.
Apart from the whole Snape & Lily distaste in my mouth, pretty good idea. I liked this chapter a lot!
Author's Response: LoL! Yeah, I find the L/S pairing a little raunchy, but it\'s kinda sweet in a twisted sort of way. But I think that Snape really loved Lily in \"real life\", so I had to put it in my story. I\'m tickled that you liked this chapter. I appreciate the review.
Summary: I don't think anyone ever expected a sixteen-year-old moron to step foot into Hogwarts. Not one as
beautiful accident prone as me at any rate. I'm Rosy and my role in the student body of Hogwarts is to make a fool of myself -and, surprisingly, I live up to that role! But I'm here for you, I risk my neck every minute of every day to bring you the latest updates of what the Marauders are up to - you know you want to take a look. I reckon this is the only chance you will get to read a young girls diary with permission!
So come on innocent fan fic reader, get turning my pages! Oh! By the way, paper cuts aren't included in the price pack - you get those for free :)
Thanks so much to Insecurity - my BETA.
Chapter seven is here :)
I love this story. Another great chapter :) Holly's been murdered! This spices things up a bit. Can't wait to see what happens!
Author's Response: It does indeed spice things up. A few things to think about. Who did it? Why did they do it? Who will get the blame?
Thank you so much for the praise. Much appreciated.
I love this story! It's so funny. I'm so glad I found it. I hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Update should be with you in a few days, a week at the max!!! xx thnks for the review xx I\'m glad u founf it aswell :)
Summary: Many questions remain unanswered about Lily and James. Was James always an arrogant bully? Did Lily really hate James, or was there something more behind her angry reply at the lake? And whoever said Lily was a bossy bookworm? Join the marauders and their friends as they go through Hogwarts, and experience pain and joy, tears and laughter...as they realize that no matter how dark the night may get, the Light of Sunrise will always follow.
Nice chapter! I liked it a lot. Poor Sirius, and Remus for that matter. Can't wait to read more-
Author's Response: Thank you! Chapter Eight will be along soon, hopefully.~rog :)
Good chapter! The Marauders are jerks! Go Lily!
Author's Response: Yeah, my boys are really misbehaving . . . humidity does that to some people. Although, note that they still aren\'t planning on being downright cruel. They just feel that if the girls want the spot they should earn it.~rog :D
