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.
I'm looking forward to reading it!
Hope that Layla girl gets what she deserves... ><
Author's Response: We\'ll see. HEhe.
I have been looking forward to this chapter!! And it was worth waiting for, though it didn't reveal much of the plot... But the scene between Isaac and Lauryn was soo cute!! I really loved that one :)
And that ending... You really know how to make us want more... I can't wait till the next chapter and I hope it won't take too long :)
Author's Response: Plot? That\'s in the NEXT chapter. Muahaha. I love being an author. I should put in more cliffies... Muahaha.
Oh, I hope it won't take too long to get it validated ...
I can't wait to read it!! It's such a fantastic fanfic, I just LOVE it!!
Author's Response: Well, thank you very much!
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!
PLEASE update soon!! Today, tomorrow, right now?
Don't wait too long, ok??
I have to know what will happen to Lily! And Snape > <
Well, some criticism: James is sometime a bit too nervous and unsure in Lily's precens.... He's supposed to be more selvconfident, aren't he? ?
And, I liked the fluff and the cuddle on the couch : ) it's sweet!
Keep up the good work and don't let us wait too long!
Author's Response: Ha ha lol not that soon! Yeah, I wanted to show that he\'s changed from his old egotistical self, and that Lily\'s not just any girl he goes out with - he really, really likes her. And the fact that she\'s finally come round and likes him back, is new and a little unnerving for him. Glad you liked it and I\'ll really try not to leave you waiting too long! :)
Summary: Sirius has finally realised he has feelings for a certain girl... but since he can't share these considerations with James, who is he going to turn to for advice?
I just looved the conversation between Moony and Padfoot!! Brilliant!!
Please write more oneshots like this one!!
And the end was just ...!!!....I can't find a suitable word, but I liked it very, very, very much :D
Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."
After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...
"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"
This is really a funny story!! I enjoy reading it because you write very well, it is easy to read it, and it has humor!
In the beginning, I didn't understad how a food-fight could set them in detension 89 (?) times, and I was a bit sceptical...
but after reading this chapter everything seems right! Of course they have do get detension! They started a whole shcool-food-fight!!
you write a bit like JK... both of you have a great humor and you write it into your stories in a very natural way .... (understand? probably not, but I like it, and thats what matters, right? =) )
update soon, pleasepleaseplease!!
Author's Response: Lol, that matters, but I think I understand what you mean. Thanks so much! I\'m ussually not a very funny person, I am shy, but I guess I am good at writing funny. I\'ll update as soon as I can.
Summary: The Marauders and their friends are just about to begin their sixth year—and what a year it will be; rocky relationships, secret relationships, the never-ending fighting between James Potter and Lily Evans…and that new threat, that new shadow lurking outside the walls of Hogwarts. A new name is rising…one that is beginning to send shivers down the wizard’s spine.
Voldemort is rising, and people are falling.
Oh! What a brilliant fic!!
The way you describe Lily's feelings seems just right! And James IS a prat around Lily! good work!
And you write very well, it's easy to read and get to the 'inside' of the story ... (I'm not good at formulate my thoughts and feelings...sorry...)
Keep up the good work, and share the next chapter with us soon!
Author's Response: omg thank you soo much! =) (and I\'m sure your just fine at formulating your thoughts and feelings) lol i\'m re-editing the next chapter and i\'ll try and get it up soon!
