I'll Always Be Right Here
Lily and James Potter knew of Sybil Trelawney's prophecy for their son. They knew that the days of hiding and grave Order reports would come. They were ready for any challenge that came their way. What they weren't ready for was the shadow of Lord Voldemort to cross their threshold, and destroy all of their hopes and dreams for the perfect future together...In response to AlirBlack's challenge.Many heartfelt thanks to darkbeauty for the lovely banner!
It's Very Complicated
"But for how long, James?" Lily lifted her head, her eyes red rimmed. She sniffed." How long before you realize your own mortality? Before I have to learn to live without you?" James smiled." That's silly. I'll always be right here." He reached over to kiss her, grinning like a schoolboy, like the adolescent he truly was at heart. Like the tousled, broom-swept young lad Sirius remembered, the lackadaisical student Remus could recall. From down the table, Dumbledore gave a small sigh.
Throwing Back the Veil
" Don't patronize me, Dumbledore!" James yelled, his emerald eyes glowing hungrily." And don't lie to me, of all people! You, the great Hogwarts Headmaster, afraid to tell me the truth? The infallible Albus has found an insurmountable challenge?" A wind blew up, tearing at his robes. Dumbledore thinned his lips." Listen to me, James." James was breathing heavily." Is it Lily and I? Be honest!"
Secret Keepers and Slytherins
Just outside, a half moon reached its peak. And miles away Death Eaters gathered in the shadows, listening to the Dark Lord detail his latest plan. Severus Snape watched and listened, the Cruciatus still burning. The longer he concentrated on Lily's lovely eyes, the more resolute he became. They were the same eyes that were gazing into James's for comfort in Fabian Prewett's house.
We Will Be Found Out
James lay back and growled," I'm so sick of this...this captivity! In my own home! I need to be active, help fight Voldemort, see my friends--" Remus stood and shouted, seething," Your friends are willing to die for you!"
October 31, 1981
James straightened and tightened his jaw. With one last look at Lily, he took a deep breath, hand upraised..."Avada Ked--" Voldemort was faster. " Avada Kedavra!" he spat, whirling his wand. The emerald light shot out, unwinding and coiling. James's eyes widened, he tried to step away, but did not shield his eyes, did not turn his back. When the spell hit him in the chest, he collapsed, and lay on the floor, his eyes open. His hand was outstretched, fingers slightly curled around his wand...
There had surely never been a visage of more defeat, bitter agony, painful desire, than there was upon the face of Sirius Black at that moment. " Come back," he whispered. " Come back to where you're loved."
