She also would like to thake this time to promote her favorite fics, erikthephantom's Veiled Revelation and Between Now and Then. She would not recommend that you get her on the subject of these fics, as well as James, Lily, Sirius or Remus, as she will never shut up about them if you do. She also betas for Orlaith, who is a brilliant author as well, especially for those who love Severus Snape more than she does.

Great story. I'm so glad that Lily is that forgiving. James didn't mean to lie to her. Could you just update a wee bit sooner? Not having a new chapeter to distract me from my homework makes me sad. :(



"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”

“No,” Sirius said simply.

“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”

The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP

wow this chapter was soo good! I have the first season on DVD(best.DVD.ever.) and the Oliver episodes are some of the best! Cole acts just like Oliver, and this character rocks! I kno that you don't want to give anything away but please, PLEASE, tell me that James and Lily won't follow the Ryan and Marissa route over the whole Oliver thing! That would make me cry...and I would be heartbroken... thanks for writing such a great story!(Oh, and did I mention that the OC is the best?)(just checking...) keep writing!

Author's Response: dude, I know that Cole is a lot like Oliver; but I must say the most tragic breakup on the OC was definately Summer and Seth. I can't wait for tomorrow's epsiode (which I don't get to watch until friday cuz I have dance!!!). It looks like a Summer and Seth episode. It's a tie..I love the OC..but I love South Park too. Naw..OC definately wins.

Maybe the chapter is too short? Just a thought. ~SiriuslyBright~

Author's Response: no, i don't think that's the problem. the chapter is fairly long. I resubmitted it (yet again). We'll have to just wait it out.

Well. We have yet another interesting twist to this story. I wonder if she'll be as evil as he mother, though it is quite possible that she won't be. Look at Sirius and his family, there are always the strange ones. I really like the story. Please update soon. And on another topic...Did you see the OC on Thurs/Fir(whenever you watched it)? Was it just me or was it incredibly good? I soo cannot wait for next week's episode! Please update soon! ASAP!

Oh, the similarities between him and Oliver never end. And I, much like Ryan, James, and the rest of the world absolutely HATE, DESPISE, LOATH,and DETEST Cole/Oliver. I have come up with an evil plan to dispose of him. It involves onions, Chinese Water Torture, episodes of Barney, and the educational French or History songs my teachers are always giving us! *mwahahahahaha!* He will be in pain...*rubs hands toghether evilly* Oh, and I know that Cole and Oliver are two different characters, but they are just so alike, I think of them as one. Sorry. Please Post sooner! I will go into withdrawl other wise...~SiriuslyBright~

this story is really good. I wish that you would update more though Cole is up to something no good, but it is obvious that he likes lily he does remind me of oliver, almost acts exactly like him. the OC will ALWAYS be the best. my fav. tv show(of all time) Ben McKenzie is really hot, and I would love to go out on a date with him! Keep posting. I luv this story!

Veiled Revelations by erikthephantom
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 514]

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?!)

I just finished reading this story for the fifth time, and it gets better each time. I swear, I can't find a single fault, ANYWHERE. I love this story more than anyother, and it's first on my favorites for a reason! I've already reviwed your other story a million thimes, so I won't repeat anything that I said there here. This story made me laugh, cry, smile, and be embarrased. The Sirius jokes are timeless,*Remus:groan* I read it all in one sitting, I loved it so much! Thanks for writing the best story EVER! ~SiriuslyBright~

Author's Response: AH its not the best story EVER.....*blush* you are too kind. :) but im sorry it made you feel embarrassed. i feel special that i inspired so many feelings out of you! perhaps there is hope for my writing yet!!

Can't...stop...laughing...just...too...funny Best quote: "ANYWAY!" Sirius said, turning back to the Pitch. "I give you the Slytherin Quidditch Team. Huzzah," he added unenthusiastically. The Slytherins began to boo him. "HEY! IF YOU WANT TO INSULT ME COME OVER HERE AND DO IT TO MY FACE!" Sirius roared and his magnified voice rang out in the suddenly silent crowd. With a satisfied smile, Sirius continued. ANd this one:"Hey Rosier!" Sirius taunted. "Go ahead and try sending a Bludger at me during the match!" he gestured to the entire faculty sitting behind him. "Black!" McGonagall shrieked. "Commentate only!" Sirius shrugged. "I'll do my best, Professor." still laughing too hard... 10 googleplex out of ten. still laughing,~SiriuslyBright~

Author's Response: yay i LOVE googleplexes!!!! and i like the Quidditch chapter :) i was awfully proud of that one if i do say so myself :)

This story was really good. But it can't be over! Can you please make some sort of epilogue to it, sort of like 'happily ever after' in a fairy tale? If you can't I understand... But it just ended so suddenly! I did enjoy it though. 10 out of 10, that's good.

Author's Response: ty, don't think i'm gonna write an epilogue tho, i'm not good at those, i usually end up messing up the story hehehhe. i'm glad u like ABFA! (when i read it over now, i think it's absolute crap, lol) anyway, thanks for taking the time to review

Wow. This story, and your other one, 'One Cold Saturday' are both really good. I laughed out loud when i read this line'you should get your mind out of the gutter'. My french teacher said this to me once, when I asked him if Pierre gave Armelle the flu. It reminded me of that, and when he said that to me, I laughed in his face. The strange thing is... my mind isn't really in the gutter. My friends minds on the other hand... but, that's not important. Please update soon. ASAP! ~SiriuslyBright~



It is ambitious Lily Evans' 7th and final year at Hogwarts. She is very excited about being one step closer to becoming an Auror and thrilled about being back to school altogether.

But there is one little annoyance: the Marauders. Specificially arrogant James Potter. He has been pestering her to go out with him, but she has coldly denied his wishes. She thinks this year will be no different to the past six school years.

But life is full of mistakes.


"Just one minute.” Lily noticed footsteps heading in her direction. She saw a hand reach from between the screens and drop a flower onto her bedside table.

“Mr. Potter! Return to your dormitory immediately!”

“Alright, alright…” The hand disappeared.

Once Lily was sure that no one was in the wing, he lifted her head and saw what flower Potter had dropped.

Lily stuffed her head in her pillow and screamed a muffled scream that no one could hear.

oh, i'm first to review! the story rox. James making Lily try out wiht only him is evil. He may like her, but he embarassed her(or she embarassed him) in front of the whole school! The whole Sirius was hilarious! Counting was painful, though, even to read. I laughed soo hard! OMG, Lily actually said yes to him,(didn't she...?). And with Sirius counting, I feel like he has no life. But I still love him. Keep writing a great story!

Author's Response: no, lily's not going out with him, but she's trying to be considerably nicer, considering she has to work with him all year long.

Erik! Apparently MNFF e-mails me when your stories are updated, so I caught myself from falling off of the face of the earth and came back to read it. Don't know if you remember me, but I just wanted to say that your stories are as brilliant as they've always been. They've proved a great comfort to me recently, and I'm glad they're still up and still fabulous. Keep it up! :*) Hope university is going well. :) ~SB

THE OFFICIAL QUILL OF THE MARAUDER'S MAP, A MARAUDER FAN CLUB, HAS VENTURED UPON YOUR STORY: Yah, that's me. My new moonlighting identity. Anyway... Another superb chapeter. You really write the characters in character and you stick to canon. I laughed really hard with the line 'Can't you bad guys wait until after the wedding to ruin our lives?' It really shows Sirius' sense of priority. But that's why I love him ;)... Don't you dare call me your hero! I'm honored, but you are truly the greatest and much more superior than me. I am just a lowly fan of your incredible stories. You can not call me your hero when you are better than me! Thanks anyway though... :)

And yet another good chapter comes to an end. I enjoyed it very, very much. It was sort of funny when Lily was meeting James' parents. I felt embarassed for her. And just to mention, club sandwiches are the best. Sirius and Remus' trip was incredible! That was really good, and I enjoyed it. Actually, despite my name, I can't choose between James and Sirius. They are both incredible in my eyes, and so alike. Funny, hot, smart, athletic. They are my dream guy. *Stares off int to space dreaming about James and Sirius**Says to no one in particular 'Why can't they exist?'* Oh, sorry. Let's see, another 10 googleplex out of ten, that should cover it. I understand that you can't post more than once a weekend. Makes perfect sense to me. It streches it out anyway. Oh, and for one final question-You're not going to go into a Remus/Sirius slash? Cuz that's kind of disturbing and would ruin an otherwise faultless story. Just wondering. In total love with the Sirius jokes by the way. Keep up the absolute perfect work.~SiriuslyBright~

Author's Response: lol NO. there will be absolutely NO slash in this story. I write them how I think they acted, and if people want to read it as friendship or slash I've tried to keep it open to both interpretations, but I'm not specifically going to say anything. And may I join you in staring listlessly into the distance sighing, "why can't they exist?" (and I'm dying for a club sandiwch right now. I have root beer, but i want foooood)

Erik! I'm so glad you're back, and I hope you enjoyed Paris! I just re-read Veiled Revelations three times in a row, but I was so happy to see that this was updated! This was really an excellent chapter, as usual. James was a bit more buffoonish than normal, I have no idea where he would get it that Lily would be pregnant with Sirus' baby. Very odd. I see that Lily will be pregnant very... soon... and I can't wait to see your brilliance put into place in that subject. The Snape and Remus interaction confused me a bit... I don't know that Snape would 'soften' at the sight of Remus suffering, rather than laugh and /or sneer. But this is coming from one of the very few people in this world who hate Snape, so... Sirius was acting a bit selfish, but I do suppose that he's starting to get a bit suspicious as well, which is to be expected, of course. It would not be a surprise that Tom would like Lily, but Frank... that's a little...creepy, to say. I can't wait to see what he's going to do to her! I hope she's okay... and now, I will step back and take my place in the horde of your impatiently waiting fans, and wait, impatiently. Especially since I'm going on vacation on Monday, and will be mad if I don't read that chapter before then... okay, ramble over. Can't wait for the next one! ;)

Author's Response: I was really excited when I read your review earlier because I thought up a good response. YES! First of all, HEY SIRIUSLYBRIGHT!! HOW ARE YOU?!??!?! Ok... now that that's over... First to address the James bit: James was a buffoon in this chapter coz he's a bit paranoid (almost obsessed really) when it comes to Lily. I mean, you know how it is, young wife, young husband, years of being used to insults and hatred, Voldemort. yadda yadda yadda. Well, you're going to see him change a lot now that he's a husband. We've seen the fuzzy side of their marriage before now. It's going to get darker, and James is not going to go through it unchanged. I mean, he's growing up, growing into his responsibilities, you know? (as for Lily, expect Harry to be introduced VERY soon, muahaaaaa) As for Snape: Snape is a funny character, you know? I mean, he's often cruel, heartless, a bit of a loser, and greasy, but i do believe he has a soft side. it's not often seen in the books, but i believe that if you look close enough, you'll find the true Snape. I know I sound like a drunken psychologist, but examining Snape and Lupin's very odd relationship, I can see him softening a bit. I don't know. That's how I honestly view Snape (and some other things like INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUITLY!!! oh snape..). THIRD: Yeah, sirius is getting a bit weird. I mean, he's got a hard enough time growing up as it is, but he's been used to remus and the rest of them always being there for him, you know? With Remus moving away from everyone, and he growing less and less in the "real" Order work, Sirius is hurt, and suspicious. He just doesn't get it. FOURTH (this is fun) read my explanation about Voldy/Lily (and for the heck of it)/Frank. It's all interpretation when it comes to Lily, but essentially, Frank and Lily are just good wizards/witches and Voldy likes power. Oh, and Lily will be OK.....for now....... I have no control over the fic queue, but I submitted it on...Friday? I think Friday. So I HOPE it'll be up soon. Actually, it might have been Thursday. I don't really remember. I really enjoyed your ramble, though SiriuslyBright!! Keep them coming, and I hope I explained myself.
