If you were Animagus, what kind of animal would you be?
J.K. Rowling: I'd like to be an otter--that's my favourite animal. It would be depressing if I turned out to be a slug or something.
ahhh I wish taht wasn't a one-shot ;)
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
aw, poor lily :(
I'm guessing that was their first of the "thrice defied"?
oh maaaaan, way to end on a cliffhanger.
update as soon as you can please! i love it.
Hey, that can't be it! Good start.
Didn't the whole James-saves-Snape thing happen in their sixth year?
W/e, it's still really good.
Author's Response: I thought it was 5th... and I\'m feeling a tad lazy to check. Whatever, as long as you still liked it! ;)
"Prongs! Prongs, what's that tree ever done to you?"
haha I love it.
I like the way this started out--it seemed like it was james at first
Author's Response: haha, thanks!
"I'm no Ravenclaw, but I finally learnt to take no for an answer." When James stops asking Lily out, she tells him that's not Quidditch!
ahhh, so cute.
I love it.
Author's Response: Thank you! (have to confess, everytime I see your name, I say Willow and Oz forever!)...like that changes anything, LOL.
On her 21st birthday, Coach Johnson gets a Halloween treat from the Harpies...the chance to deal with a ghost from her past. Locked in a cellar with Fred and George, Angelina proves there's something about Fred that sets him apart. His kiss.
Heee, that made me feel all fuzzy :D
I love George in that
Author's Response: Me too! I\'d hate to have to choose between the twins, so it\'s a good thing I don\'t author insert...I\'d have \'my\' character date them both at the same time and do that scene on a regular basis, LOL.
"If you’re in the mood for a long, drawn-out James/Lily fic about the gorgeous Lily Evans and her two slightly less beautiful friends who hook up with Sirius and Remus while leaving Peter out of the picture, this is not the story for you."
Now I'm actually going to read it :D
Excellent-a great new take.
...and really funny
Severus Snape has ambitions to rise above his humble beginnings. Eris Greyback has a family debt to repay. Their romance is a more complicated brew than the trickiest of potions. SSEG, LEJP. The sequel, The Potions Master's Apprentice, is also complete.

ahaha. i defintely love your portrayal of kettleburn. hilarious.
Author's Response: Thank you! He\'s very Monty Python inspired. :D
Within the Marauder band of Merry Men, Sirius is the dashing Will Scarlet. Seventh year, his goal is not to rob the rich, but to help poor Robin woo Maid Lily, avoid sermons from Friar Moony, aid a rat in need, and win the love of a fair lady.

*Chapter 30 is 'To Be Loved'*
I really like your portrayal of peter in this-he seems so much more like a friend, as opposed to a future murderer. It makes me like him-in a really weird way.
Author's Response: Thank you for putting it like that- that\'s how I feel too. :D He had to be more than a self-centred future murderer or Sirius wouldn\'t have trusted him, so I had to find a way to like him too.
“Hold on,” Peter said. “You blokes kiss girls’ ears? And they like it?”
Author's Response: Is that...you love being kissed on the ear...or you love the story...or both? :D You don\'t have to answer, heh, I have warped humour.
Aw, Luna. Love.
Hey-did you get Jemina's name from "A Great and Terrible Beauty'? Love that book. :-)
Author's Response: That is exactly where I got her name.
That was really sweet. I liked the new take.
very well done...
Author's Response: thanks
So good! You write very well. Keep it up!
(Now I really want to know what he said!)
Author's Response: Thanks! And you\'ll find out soon enough...
It's good so far. Kind of Lily/James only...Hermione/Draco. Update!
Author's Response: Hmm...I never thought of it that way, but I like it!
oh that was so sweet! i got a really good grasp of the characters in such a short time, i really enjoyed the dialogue :)
In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.
Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.
Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*
This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!
I had the biggest crush on Oliver when I was like thirteen. I'm very excited about this.
And this might be a little nitpicky, but isn't Katie a year old than Harry? The cursed necklace thing happened in his sixth year, but her seventh? I could be wrong though.
I'm looking forward to chapter updates! Katie/Oliver is honestly a pair I never considered, but now I'm starting to really like it :)
Hi there.I know what you mean about the Oliver crush, because when I first watched the SS movie, he and I were about the same age and *melt*.
I've kind of always assumed that Katie and Oliver were a thing, and I have no idea why. This is the first time I've ever explored their relationship in depth, so I'mreally excited to get this one out.
And you 're right about Katie's age. I could have sworn that it was what I'd had on there, but I might have been under the influence of fatigue and missed it. I shall go back and check.
I'm glad you like the story so far, and the second chapter is in the queue. You know what that's like, lol. It should come out in the next couple of days. Thanks for reviewing. :D
