hey people! Due to problems with my computer, I will be away frequently.

these are excerpts from one of my stories, Take My Hand , a Lily/James story.

It was a diary entry - one from my second year at Hogwarts. Tears of anger filled my brilliant eyes as I read its contents.

Feburary 14

James didn't so much as look at me. It's Valentine's Day and I didn't get even so much as a glance. Is it because I'm Muggleborn that he hates me? All he ever does is make fun of how red my hair is or how unusual my eyes are. Why does he have to be so bloody perfect? Alex and Emmeline keep telling me to forget about him but I can't. He's a remarkable Quidditch play ... he's a Chaser, the position I've wanted to play since last year. I should try out for the team next year ... I wonder if he'll notice me then.

I'm goint to try and take their advice. Emmeline said she can hook me up with some Ravenclaw ... everyone agrees I shouldn't get hung up on a Marauder. I can't help it; I see the way he looks at those other girls and I just get a burning feeling of jealousy in the depths of my stomach ... there goes my creativity again. Why does he have to be so bloody perfect, I ask you?!



Mr. James Potter,

A friendly reminder - NEWTS are this year. Please find enclosed a list of necessary books and materials. Also, yourself and Mr. Black will be serving detention at the start of school for your lovely prank at the end of term. No, we haven't forgotten about your punishment.

On a happier note, I couldn't be prouder to write this letter myself, Mr. Potter. I am pleased to inform you that you will be occupying the position of Head Boy this year, along with the Quidditch Captainship given to you in your sixth year. Miss Lily Evans will be your co-Head, and therefore you shall be sharing the private Heads' quarters with her all year.

Congratulations and good luck,

Albus Dumbledore

Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; Order of Merlin, First Class; Grand Sorcerer; Chief Warlock; Supreme Mugwump; International Confederation of Wizards.


It was a picture of my friends. I was in the middle, lying across Alexis and Emmeline's arms. It was a wizard's picture, so naturally everyone was moving. Suddenly, Potter came up, swatted Emmeline away, lifted me to him, and kissed me. I glared angrily at the picture.

Even the picture versions of the two of us argued. The picture me jumped away and slapped him across the face. Too disgusted to continue my observation of the photograph, I stuffed it into the messenger bag that was thrown over my shoulder.


She's perfect, from every angle. Her red hair shines just so, her emerald eyes sparkle and glitter when she's excited or happy, she bites her lip hard during particularly difficult Transfiguration lessons, she breezes through her exams like they were merely classwork.

Too bad she bloody hates me.


And a quote from chapter two, Alexis the Great

My family comes from a long line of werewolves. Well, just Mum. Consequently, Adriane and my other sister Carrie are werewolves and become full-fludged monsters one a month. Of course, they aren't alone in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Remus Lupin is the only other student to cross the threshold in over a century with as serious a medical contidion as lycanthropy. Only my brother Anthony and I know of Adriane, Carrie, and Remus's shared secret - the only difference being my sisters are locked in unaccessable classrooms on the full moon, whereas Remus was stuffed in the Shrieking Shack.

!~~*~~! Quotes from another of my stories, Stuck !~~*~~!

Summery - Do you know what being stuck in a house with people you hate for three months does to a teenager?

Sometimes it increases trust.
Sometimes it destroys the friendships you've already built.
Sometimes it makes you act in unexpected ways.
Sometimes it ends in unbearable sacrifice.
Sometimes it gives you strength.
And on rare occasion, it even spawns love.
