7 Ways to Win Her Heart by x_lily_evans_x
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 200]

Summary: COMPLETED

Ah, Christmas. The season of joy and love. And Head Boy James Potter fully intends to use the loving atmosphere to his advantage by coming up with plans and using them to capture the heart of Lily Evans.

But since when do plans transfer beautifully from parchment to life?

Six plans become five, five become four, four become three, three become two, two become one, and then there are none.

Then his friends come to the rescue.

But of course.

This is great--it's lots of stories in one, the main story and all of Gemma's. I was kind of disappointed that James seemed unwilling to improvise in most of the plans, to get them back on track. But the last plan was the best; this was a great chapter!

Author's Response: Hmm, you\'ve got a point. Oh well, I\'m still glad that you liked the last chapter. And that you found it great. Thanks for the review, and thanks for sticking with this fic till the end! :D

 

Dark Side of the Moon by Lioness06
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 46]

Summary:

In fifth year, Sirius along with James and Peter managed the difficult Animagus transformation. In fifth year, Sirius played the ‘werewolf prank’ on Snape. One was an act of loyalty, brotherhood, and friendship; the other an act of betrayal, vengeance, and recklessness. This story spanning the Marauders' fifth year will deal with both these incidents, as well as Sirius’s increasing rejection of everything having to do with ‘The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black”.

"Fifteen-year-old Sirius had enough experience dealing with attractive girls that he was able to look Leila straight in the eyes without betraying any hint of desire on his side." That's my favorite line.
This is so well-written...and since you don't mind rambling, I guess I will.
I love Orion (as a character, not a person). He's more sensible than I would expect a sensible person to be. And Walburga--what an...original name. It sounds just like her. Sirius' rebellion is just like him.
I would ramble more, but I have things to do...so I can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you like that line! hehe! Nope I don\'t mind rambling at all :) I didn\'t pick the name Walburga - when J.K. Rowling wrote out the Black family tree for some auction, we learned the names of Sirius\'s relatives. Thanks for leaving a review!

 

Parties in the Room by thesims
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Lily hates James, up until the seventh year when he finally deflates his head a little. Then she sees that he actually likes her and doesn't just want to mess around. Between the parties and him changing for once, what will Lily Evans do?

Check your tenses in the first paragraph and the paragraph about spring break; they should be past to match the rest of the story.
I do think it's possible for Lily to notice that James is extremely good-looking and still think he's annoying...she would, I think, be confident enough in her own ability not to like people just based on their looks to acknowledge that James is handsome.
“It’ll be sooner than that,” and with that he ran off with Black.
Ooh, suspense! I like it! Update quickly!

Author's Response: I\'ve already submitted the second chapter, and I\'m just waiting for it to be validated. The next chapter has some humor in it, just a little though.

This is like a portrait of a moment--I can see, hear, and smell every little thing. It was really fun to read. I'm a little confused on the timing, though--is it end of 6th year?
"Even if he married someone else; he doubted he could ever again love someone else like he loved her." This struck me as a little odd--if he loves her, why would he consider the possibility of marrying someone else? I think it would be more realistic if you said, "even if he didn't marry her". But again, a beautiful word-painting of Lily and James!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. I guess it could be the end of 6th year. It\'s just when they are friends but not yet together... And now that I read that line again, I guess it is kind of odd. I\'ll try to change it. Thanks.

 

Flowers by KASK

This is a really interesting take on James and Lily's relationship. It's very true to their characters. You did a great job showing what a big deal it is for her to give up her friendship with Severus. It was an interesting choice to have Snape wait so long to talk to her again, but it worked in the story.
Great job; I love your work!

Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping to capture the story in a different way.

 

Summary: Not all scenes Jo writes make it to the final copy. Here, I reveal a snipped snippet of a Prince’s memory, of a kiss and a scarf and another facet of the firm goodness of a friend not forgotten.

This is really good! But "Harry was looking avidly at his mother, wrapped in a teal scarf and a flaxen mink coat" makes it sound like Harry's in the coat; it should be, "Harry was looking avidly at his mother, who was wrapped in a teal scarf and a flaxen mink coat". Thanks for writing this!

Author's Response: And thank you for reading and reviewing and even nitpicking, hon! ^_^

 

Amphibious Lizards by Apollonious
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 117]

Summary: They are all talented, some more than others. Some play Quidditch. Others are known for their brilliance in academics. They are the Marauders and a group that has lain in the shadows up to now, called the Lady Firebrands, known for their hot tempers and rather subdued practical jokes.

Romance will bloom.

Rivalries will blossom.

The author will try to stop using so many bad plant puns.

The story of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs' NEWT years will be told.

These are the Amphibious Lizards.

Diatribe by Lily of the US
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 20]

Summary: In the dictionary, “diatribe” is defined as “a bitter, abusive attack or criticism.” In other words, a sharp blow. And living around self-centred James Potter brings one blow after another. Unfortunately for Lily Evans, it’s his annoying, egotistical attitude that she finds most attractive.



Rated 6th-7th years for language and some sexuality.

Cinderella Was a Redhead by NeLLyRaE

Summary: Lily Evans has problems. She sleepwalks, (and always ends up in strange places) she is disorganised, flunking Arithmancy, and, to her dismay, was made Head Girl. There is also the problem of James Potter, who refuses to stop asking her out. Will she ever pull herself together enough to give him a chance?

What year is Lily?
You have a very distinctive narrative voice that adds character to the story. It seems a little AU, though--I feel like Lily wouldn't hate her sister, just be sad that Petunia dislikes her so much. I'm interested to see how your Cinderella idea plays out.

Author's Response: She\'s in seventh year. It isn\'t AU, we honestly don\'t know that much about lily, just a bunch of stuff taht we\'ve assumed. everyone seems to be under the impression taht she\'s some perfetc, beautiful, goody-two-shoes. well, i personally ahve never seen anything in the books that says that. There really isn;t that much we know about her except she was pretty, smart and funny. My lily has all those attributes, but she has a few quirks too, she isn\'t perfect! I know what you\'re saying about petunia, she probably was like that, but i\'m not writing a sad story about her relationship with her sister, this was designed as a humor fic, so i\'m not going to be delving too deep into the relationshsip thing! Thanks for reviewing!!!! :)

 

Turning Tables by x_lily_evans_x
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 44]

Summary: Lily Evans, Head Girl, has never been reckless. She has been reliable and careful, thinking through everything before making decisions. But when she recklessly takes on a challenge by Amelia Lance to see who can make James Potter fall for her by the Easter holidays, her life goes from orderly to complicated. However, Lily thinks she's got it under control. After all, this is James Potter, the boy who, at least, used to like her and ask her out. Winning this challenge should be child’s play, right?

It's amazing how wrong a girl can be...

he was usually overconfident and affluent.
Affluent means rich. Maybe you meant affable? amiable? something else?
I really like how you've portrayed James and Lily's relationship. In OOTP, Lupin (or maybe Sirius) says, "No, she didn't [hate James]. Not really." I think you've captured that; unlike a lot of fics, this one doesn't have them hating each other. Update quickly; this was fun to read!

Author's Response: Oh, gosh. I\'m blushing so hard for making that mistake. I meant to write fluent, but I guess I was thinking at that time how similar affluent and fluent sounded, and absent-mindedly typed affluent there instead. Thanks for pointing that out! I\'m glad you liked their relationship! And I\'ll try to update quickly. I hope you\'ll continue reading this fanfiction. Thanks for your review! :D

Date: 01/13/08 Title: Chapter 1: Safety

This is a fascinating story, very original and well-written. I was a little confused about Lily's love for James. Ans I was reading, sometimes it was hard to tell if it was Lily letting the reader find out more about how she felt about James, or if it was her love evolving. Before you say each statement about her feelings (e.g. James was her best friend, she loved him, etc.), I see that it's true--but I don't really see her letting go of her earlier opinions. I'm left wondering a little bit how she let go of her former attitudes.
All in all, though, very original and lovely to read.

Author's Response: Thank you! She didn\'t hate James when she married him -- she just didn\'t love him. But as he took care of her and was there for her, love grew.

Summary: Dumbledore has a very good idea. True, it may be termed as 'illegal,' but when it concerns the happiness and futures of two sixth-years, James Potter and Lily Evans, 'illegal' isn't really important, is it? His portraits agree.

And while it could be said that two inexperienced students should never be responsible for a mass construction project and the hosting of an international festival... well, the teachers of Hogwarts have never really paid attention to propreity, have they?

nice job! my only thought is that Lily's change of heart seems very sudden. I like your writing style, esp. in the beginning when Lily won't let herself think about her mother's death so the reader doesn't know about it. (It reminded me vaguely of Faulkner...)

Now Complete!



After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!

Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance


Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
