But their teaming up is not only for that purpose, but also to vanguish the Dark Lord...

Chapter 1: Familiar Faces

The corridors were shaken wildly with loud feet stompings and furious mutterings of a seventeen year old red-headed girl. Her face was scarlet and flushed with anger.

"Why are you following me Potter?" Lily spun around and screeched right into his face.

James grinned and folded his arms across his chest. Chucklings could be heard from behind him. Sirius and Remus were obviously trying very hard to soften their laughs so as not to distract James and Lily in their quarrel.

"Hm... Let me see..." James said as he rubbed his chin with his right hand. "When are you going to go out on a date with me? What about Hogsmeade weekend next week?"

"Date? Hogsmeade weekend?" Lily rolled her eyes and laughed sarcastically. "Dream on Potter!"

Lily continued her way down the corridor again, with the hope that James Potter would stop stalking her. But she was wrong. James never felt tired teasing and followed her closely.

"I don't think she's gonna go out with you." Remus managed a whisper into James' ears.

"Nah! I think she will. I have strong faith in you Prongs!" Sirius tapped James lightly on the shoulder.

James grinned at his best mates and ran forward, catching up on Lily Evans.

"Come on Lily, give me a chance!" James begged, ignoring his friends who were still holding back their laughs.

"I don't give chances to prats like you Potter! Now scram!" Lily gave a murderous glare at her stalker before climbing through the portrait hole into the Gryffindor common room.

James, Sirius and Remus followed, to find the common room very empty - except for the four of them.

"Please Lily. You gotta give me a chance so you'll know who I really am..." James pleaded.

"I already know who you are Potter! You are a git who likes to show off and also likes to throw hexes at anyone you wish! It's brilliantly disgusting!" Lily spat, eyes glaring hard at James.

"Whoa! I bet you're just angry with me 'coz I hexed Snape just now, wasn't it?" James questioned, a glint of jealousy in his eyes. "Why? Is he your boyfried Evans?"

"SHUT UP POTTER! YOU ARE AN INSENSITIVE PRAT!" Lily screamed, not caring if she was going to wake the whole castle up.

"OI!" Remus called out suddenly, causing Lily to stop screaming her head off. "Look at the fire!"

Remus was pointing towards the fire at the fireplace. There was nothing unusual going on with it except that the flames were changing to different colours - from fiery red to orange, to green, to blue, to violet and so on.

Lily gasped slightly and felt herself moving towards the fireplace. James, Sirius and Remus were moving forward as well. All of them had already forgotten about James' and Lily's argument a while ago due to the curiosity. Obviously, they had never encountered this before.

"What magic is this?" James heard Lily asking as the four of them leaned their faces closer towards the fire.

Before James could give an answer to Lily's question, suddenly, he felt himself spinning around in circles, being carried up in the air, before being thrown down onto the hard floor again - with his back facing the floor. He yelped in pain and tried to roll over but before he could, he felt something hit him hard on his stomach and chest. He cried in pain again. He looked up and saw Lily on top of him, straddling his stomach with her face buried into his chest. Automatically, James forgotten about the pain in his back, stomach and chest. Instead, he was grinning from ear to ear, to have Lily so close to him.

"Oh! I'm sorry!" Lily cried as she quickly got up, her face blushing furiously.

"Here mate!" Sirius's face came into view and offered his hand to James. Sirius was also rubbing his back and James guessed that he might have fallen down the same way he had.

"You're lucky to have Evans falling on top of you." Sirius whispered. "I had Remus falling on top of me and it was bloody horrible!"

James held back a sneer as he glanced at both Sirius and Remus, both red in the face.

"James!" Lily called out in a surprised tone. James turned to look at her and was indeed very surprised as well. It was the first time ever, Lily had called him with his first name. A feeling of excitement was thundering in his chest.

'Maybe that's for a start!' James though happily.

"Look at the common room!" Lily continued, still wearing the surprised expression on her face.

James, Sirius and Remus looked around and understood what Lily meant. They were still inside the Gryffindor's common room but there seemed to be a little change in the furnitures and their positioning as well. Plus, the furnitures there looked new and quite fasionable.

The four of them stared silently at each other. Each one of them having a blank expression on the face. They were very confused on what had just happened.

Ginny climbed down the steps towards the common room. It was already two a.m. in the morning, but she still could not fall asleep. She decided to sit by the fire at the common room and read her Charms notes. Well, she thought it was better to prepare for her OWLs rather than just stare at her four posters canopy bed.

'It should be empty by now...' Ginny thought as she continued her way down the stairs.

But then, she heard low whispered voices coming from the common room and guessed that she was wrong. Ginny sighed and looked around the common room to see four figures standing by the fire. She shrugged and walked over towards the fireplace. Her appearance there seemed to have silenced the four people from their conversation. Ginny threw a quick glance at them.

"Harry?" Ginny called out looking directly at the raven haired boy who was clustered in between his three companions.

James looked at the beautiful red haired girl who had just call him Harry. Then, he shifted his gaze back to Lily.

'Damn! This girl looks exactly like Lily!' James thought. 'Now I'm having second thoughts. Should I just date this girl instead of Lily? Anyway, Lily seems to hate me...'

"Hey! You're not Harry! Your eyes, it's not his!" Ginny said without taking her eys off the four of them. "I've never seen the four of you before. But to think again, you look oddly familiar."

Just then, Sirius barged forward and took one of Ginny's hands and kissed the back of it, causing Ginny to jump.

"My sweet lady. Let me introduce myself, I am Sirius, your knight in shining armor!" Sirius started, bowing a little.

"Sirius? You can't be serious..." Ginny chuckled, pulling her hand back.

"Oh! It looks like you can't resist my charming looks, can't you?" Sirius wiggled his eyebrows.

"Stop it Black! You're scaring her!" Lily's voice bellowed. She was glaring at Sirius as she came forward towards Ginny. This time round, Ginny's face turned pale at hearing the name 'Black'. And when she combined the name together, Sirius and Black, of course it'll be...

"Sirius Black?" Ginny whispered causing Sirius to grin at her flirtatiously. "Then, you must be James Potter! Lily Potter! And you..." Ginny pointed her finger at Remus who had scratches on his arms due to his werewolf tranformation. "Professor Lupin!"

Ginny managed to let out a sigh, noticing Peter Pettigrew was not there with them.

"Why in the world would you call me Lily Potter? I am Lily Evans." Lily held out her hand to Ginny.

Ginny gasped and dropped her Charms notes onto the floor and ran straight up to the Boys Dormitories. Her departure took Lily and the three friends by surprise.

"Where's she going? Why in Merlin's name did she call me a Potter?" Lily spat out the name as if it was something disgusting.

"Why did she ran up the Boys room?" Remus asked, obviously enchanted by Ginny's beauty. "She's not a guy isn't she? Or he?"

"Shut up Moony!" James glared at Remus. "Look at the curves on her body! Got to be a girl dammit!"

"Hey! Watch your language Prongs! I saw her first and she knows my name!" Sirius pointed out. "She's mine! Your stick to your red head Lily over there."

"WHAT? His red head?" Lily shrieked.

As the four of them continued the squabblings down in the common room, Ginny had already reached the Boys Dormitories where the seventh year students were sleeping soundly. She walked over to a raven haired boy who was smiling in his sleep and at the same time, letting out moans of pleasure which were quite surprising to Ginny. But apart from that, this particular boy might have answers to the problems that is happening right now, in the common room.
