Why Lily Hates James
Well, this is my Lily.James fanfic, and it ties in with my other 3 series... Ever wondered how Lily and James ended up together? Ever wondered why Peter turned on them? Ever wondered why Sirius, the ultimate bacheor, never got married and settled down? Find out what I think happened, and more...
Tears, Cheers, and 6 Past Years
“You wouldn’t fancy me if you were gay?” asked James, sort of offended. “No, Jamsie, if I were gay I am quite sure I’d fancy you,” Sirius said, rolling his eyes. “In fact, I think I do right now and I’m not even gay. Damn, mate, how do I resist you?!” James made an alarmed face, and Sirius glared at him. “I WAS JOKING!” “Oh. Iknewthat.... Seriously, you would fancy me if you were gay, right?”
It Seems So Nasty!
Lily made a face. Of course she knew her best friend and Charles had, er.. done the dirty, but still, it never ceased to disgust her that she’d let herself do that before marriage. “I think sex is gross.” “WHAAAT?!”
Next thing he knew, her eyes flashed angrily, and a hand slapped him hard across the face. He let out a howl that gained the attention of almost everyone in the common room, and he dropped the hat. Lily grabbed it, shoving it roughly and backwards back onto the crown of her red head, glaring at him. “Great shot, Evans!” called Sirius, laughing.
James sighed and nodded, walking off to his bed a few down, as Lily had taken a free one in a corner. However, he paused a few feet away. “Does that mean I’m not to speak of you kissing me?” Lily glared. “I did not kiss you, Potter. You tricked me and lunged yourself at me so plant what you seem to think suffices as a human kiss on my cheek.” “Oh, so you do admit it happened?” he asked brightly.
Lily shot Sirius Black a look as he screamed something about an apocalypse, then noticed that James Potter actually seemed to be reading. “Amazing,” she muttered. “Isn’t he?” asked Becky. Lily gave her a face. “I meant that he was reading.” Becky smiled. “I know.”
James and Lily in a Library.... tiihii for an encounter GREATLY involving some genitalia..... *wicked smile*
Bubble Girl Evans
“You saw my boggart?” she whispered. “I saw....” Sirius said harshly. “Go on, Lily. Go on and keep walking out on everybody.” He reached and roughly wiped off the blood pooling on her brow. “Don’t let me stop you from lying to yourself.”
Arguments, fights, assults, and secrets.... Yeah all in this chapter.
FRIENDS!!! aren't they GRAND!!! Especially when it's Lily and james..... mwaahahaha Some friends and flirting, what more do you need?!
Bloody Hearts For Valentines'
It's amazing how fragile life is. How it can be taken away with a snap. The arrival of a rose is an omen for Lily, but things spiral out of control before she can even realize what's happening. What will happen from here? Voldemort has taken away everything she has, and she is utterly alone. James tries to help, but will it be enough? Some things are too permanent to reverse. Some things are too tragic to forget. And some things.... are too horrible to comprehend...
Denial, Distraction, and Death
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Look at my pretty new banne I made!!! ^_^ He’d seen Becky try to comfort Lily. He’d seen the desperation in Rebecca Smith’s eyes to make he friend stop hurting. But Lily was rigid and cold, didn’t even respond when Becky tried to draw her into idle conversation. And it was then that James had realized. Somehow, he was all Lily had left.
As they both rounded the corner and James went to go through a shortcut, Lily took his hand and pulled him down the hall after her. He didn’t say anything, but smiled to himself. “You said you wouldn’t leave me,” Lily said to him. “I’m holding you to your solemnest word as a Marauder.”
Going home for the funeral, some confrontation between Petunia and James, and not to mention the fact that this is 19 hours of no magic.... It's gonna be a long, long time....
James learns about Muggle appliances, Petunia is a royal b-word, and Lily finally has the breakdown she's been managing to keep in for a week.
Exploding Muggle Machines
James has a run-in with muggle appliances, Lily has a p*ss fit a Petunia for some things, and the ending will make you go "awwww" I garuntee it!!
I dedicate this entire chapter to my best mate EVER, Genny. yes, the infamous Genny from FFA!!! I love he to bits and she recently had a tonsilectomy this past Thursday. Not only that but she can barely eat and feels like she's going to die in pain. This chapter is right up her alley in comedy, and she loved it, so I dedicate it to her. LUV U, GEN! Lily and James use old fashioned boy-girl revenge on each other. Who started it? Who ended it? What happens in-between? Let's just say it gets interesting....
If Magic Could Change The World
18 If Magic Could Change The World All about good times, until we realize what kind of monster show we're running. Thanks to SamanthaKeo for the great cupcake line!!!
James gets a little cocky and gets himself slapped. What else is new?
Marauder's Code of Secret Death
Peter learns what a Microwave is, James tries to stab Sirius with a fork. Sirius thinks James raped Lily. James forces Sirius to take the Maraduer's Code of Secret Death. Becky becomes Lily's personal shrink. And somehow Lily manages to make James feel like an idiot. AMAZING!!!
Light of the Moon
Sirius’ ears suddenly perked. James immediately strained his ears. Sirius’ hair, all of it, stood on end, and he looked straight at the door. James smelled it an instant after he did, and dread filled his entire body. He recognized that smell, shampoo. Lily Evan’s shampoo. **Animals can smell fear, she thought to herself. Remus isn’t Remus, anymore, he’s a werewolf. Don’t be afraid, for god’s sake, don’t be afraid! It’s nothing, he can’t smell me, I’m not here... **Remus’ entire body became stick still, rigid and stiff. He let out a roar. "BLOOOOOD!"
There was silence for a while, before James glanced over. “How’d you like it?” he asked. She glared. “Oh, yes James, I have always secretly desired to wave my bosoms round in the frigid midnight air from the top of a castle.” He smiled. “See, being a Marauder isn’t so bad!”
Sort of general chapter. Lils being sort of confused and amused. James strikingly deep in his thought, mainly about Lily. Sirius being a dolt. What else is new?? Oh, yea, James and Lily now like each other..... Read on!!
Lily gives Peter love adivce. James is a butt headed pervert that keeps saying he's going to shag Lily. Remus is Remus. Sirius uses a butterbeer to propose.... Yep, it's a normal Marauder's day in Hogsmeade
Arguments and Quidditch
“Have fun while it lasts,” Lucius snickered. James narrowed his eyes. “What do you mean by that, Malfoy?” The blond man, however, just shrugged airily and walked out before him. “Just that sometimes the magic is being done where you aren’t looking....”
LOTS of bad things going on in this chapter. Just... DON'T KILL ME!!!! *runs* Lily is the damsel-in-distress, James comes to her resuce in the most unlikely way, Sirius stands up for what's right very extremely, Remus for once is confused, and everything is getting more and more unfair.
He’d noticed, too, how much time he and Lily spent together, but it was not as if it bothered him. Really he could not tell if he was around her, or she around him, it just worked out somehow that there they were, Potter and Evans, off talking together. James sighed, “She needs friends, not a boyfriend.” Sirius shook his head, eyes deeper than ever. “No, James, she fed you that lie. She doesn’t need friends, she needs you.”
Some name-calling, some jazz dancing, and just a a liiiittle bit of snogging...
Leaving With A Bang!
Let us just say that with 5 Marauders, now... Well, the end of the school year has never been more interesting.
Just having a good time on summer vacation!!!
The Shower Incident...
Lils and James have quite a bad falling-out, really quite litterally, but then things get.... interesting... to the nth extreme. Let's just say that you'd better NOT read this chapter on a full bladder, or else you will pee yourself laughing!!!
Basically them getting along... FINALLY.... and starting to sort through things.
Little Orphan Annie
Lily argues with Sirius, Sirius argues with James, James is mad at Sirius, and Becky is just caught in the middle. The book shop, the secret oath, and the begining of the ride to Hogwarts for the last time.... Why can't all school years start off this well?
The Secret Oath
Lily and James argue (hilarious), the Marauders conferene (MORE hilarious) and a long-awaited result!!!
French and Eunuches
“You lie!” Becky rasped. “James! Take the Imperious off her!” “Imperious?” Lily asked, affronted. “Imperious this!”
James rolled his eyes... electing to place his hand in just the right spot to make her jump and look round at him with wide eyes. “James!” “Lily!” he gasped, grinning.
Let's Go For A Ride!
Just having a bit of fun before we start getting down to business..... LOTS of snogging.
“I’m not afraid of him, James, I’ve got nothing left that he can take away from me.” James felt something hit him, as though a hard blow to the chest had winded him of all speech at her words. A deep feeling of sadness filled him, and he let his hands drop away from Lily. However, she reached and took them, again, and turned to look up at him again. “At least, nothing that I know will ever leave me.”
Going to France, realizing they have to work together to be creative, and having a blast in their new living accomodations- Why can't I be a seventh year Hogwarts Student??
Dancing Into France
LOTS of fun, and the routine, the clothes.... Just FUN!!!
The Amulets and the Gentleman
Sirius is flirting with his new nemisis, all the students get a very generous gift, and James freezes his mouth shut-- what more could you ask for? Oh yeah, a snogging scene. Well.....
The Blue Flame
Still, that night after she kissed James, finished her homework, and laid out her ballet gear for stretches the next morning, she looked in the mirror and had to wonder if this was all there was to her life.
James reached to clutch Lily’s hand, and she whispered, “Good luck, James!” He smiled a bit nervously, and Sirius looked as though he were going to be a bit sick. Maxime blinked at it, then lowered the paper. Taking in a deep breath, she smiled and said softly, “And ze last champion, ze champion for ‘Ogwarts...Ess...."
“Well,” Charles said distractedly, still buried behind his book, “Perhaps it’s got a charm or something on it.” She held in her slender fingers a trinket that was unlike any she’d ever seen. The clue to the First Task. “Whoever heard of a charmed thingamabobbie?” asked James. “Your use of the English language is marvelous,” Becky shot at him dryly. He shrugged, “What can I say, I have a word with ways.”
That night at dinner, she couldn’t help but notice that James and Sirius were talking together in low voices and frequently glanced at the teachers, smiling. After a while she leaned in, “What the blazes are you two planning?” “Noooothing,” Sirius smiled. “Sure,” she raised and eyebrow, “And I’m Malfoy’s wife.” Sirius made a face. “Ew! James! She’s like, your illegitimate girlfriend! Why didn’t you ever tell me?!”
A Possible Breakthrough
"High priestess... blah blah blahda... Usually found in covenants, Druidic churches, or other similar convents. Typically reformed castles... bla bla... Mythical muggle tales of ancient druidic background ties in stories such as Arthur which can be...." -yawn- "verified by accounts of Merlin and his connections with Morgan Le Fay of Avalon and the Lady. What utter rubbish."
"And now foor ze final coontestant, but zertainly not ze least, Mademoiselle Leely Evans off ‘ogwarts School for Weesardry... Now, Mademoiselle Evans, are yoo reddy?" asked ze announcer.
Her head broke the surface again, and she heard vague shouting of witches being able to swim. Seeing an approaching man on horseback, Lily gasped in air and sank under again, trying to sink to the bottom. Slashing at the dress was barely doing anything. Slowly, it began to come free of her. Brain screaming for oxygen, she slashed again and again, ignoring blood, and finally saw the dress weak enough to rip...
The Mad Dress Hunt
That was when it happened- It being that she glanced out the frosted window, across the street, and into the also frosted window of a small store that seemed to be an independent company. In the window there was a display of winter cloaks, nothing at all special about them, really, but below them was a pair of dainty dress shoes. Being the girl still on the Hunt for not only a dress but dress shoes, Lily thought as practical Lily always does and-
A Beautiful Champion
James, however, couldn’t move, transfixed by the sight of Lily as she quickly hung her cloak up and came over to him. Her heels clicked as she walked.
Both of them froze, confused, staring at each other in complete loss. Lily looked over at her window, and saw not her back yard through it, charmed, but the Bauxbatons palace and lawns. Something was wrong.
Lily saw that his stomach was bulging and moving, as if something were alive and moving around inside his body.
James wanted to stroke her fingers, to try to see if they even held life anymore. They were swollen and looked almost black, completely covered in bite marks. Her ring finger on that hand was crushed, the bone had been snapped from the pressure of one of the bites. He had been told not to touch her from the elbow down, for fear any outside stimulation might further spread the poison or cause a wound to re-open. James itched to just be able to hold her.
A bird chirped overhead, and Lily watched it fly. Then her eyes fell, blurrily, to trace the names of her parents in the headstones, set against the whiteness of snow.
His hands started shaking, and without realizing it he clutched the letter so tightly that the paper crumpled in his hands. James heard himself gasping for air as if he were hearing someone else, and he sounded detached as he heard himself speak.
Ummm please note the new rating of the story, due to this chapter..... ((hides))
I am SO SORRY about being away so long!!!!
Do You Know?
James bit the corner of his lip, not knowing how to word himself. “So… do you like, know?”
“He means, Padfoot, that these are the last days of an era,” Remus said, tossing another rock. “We’re leaving soon to go on with our lives and finally grow up. We won’t be students any more unless we want to be. We’ll be adults and make lives.”
Blinking at the low light, Lily was looking at the exterior of a house. Some vines were growing up the side of it, which was a very old stone country manor.
Don't kill me for being away so long!!
You Are Cordially Invited...
She indicated with her finger that he should spin, and he cha-chaed around in a circle, wiggling his hips wildly and making her laugh. “Padfoot, you’ll never change.” Sirius grinned, sitting on the arm of a chair. “You, however, have gone from a scrawny little redhead girl I used to pick on… well I still pick on you… to being pretty much the bride-li-est cherry bomber I know!” Lily rolled her eyes and continued to scrutinize her hair, “I’ll take that as a compliment.”
The muggle doctor nodded. “The government recently discovered that there were medical problems with children whose mothers took DES while pregnant with them… most of the problems are reproductive, typically resulting in infertility. You’re healthy, but we can see that your uterus is malformed, and your cervix is weakened due to the exposure to the DES.” Lily watched her doctor for a long time, before she asked quietly, “What are my chances?” The doctor’s face looked sorry, and a corner of her mouth twitched before she responded...
Suddenly Lily felt furious at these Death Eaters, at these people who lived to kill. She felt the rage growing within her, the anger that they had to fight, that they had to worry and be scared all the time. Lily felt the hate multiplying inside her, causing her fingertips to tingle and her heart to beat faster.
A Rose and A Ring
James looked back out the window, and instead of the depressing snow falling, he envisioned lovely snow, with him outside running around in it, laughing as his son made a snow angel and holding his little girl’s hand as she toddled beside him, wondering what the white stuff was. Then Lily would call from the house not to get too cold, and Becky would berate her as her and Charles’ child played with them outside. That, James figured, would be perfect
She had flowers and vegetables and herbs and no weeds to choke them at all. Now all she needed was a baby, so that James would stop looking so sad. She looked at her plants, seeing the fresh water and blood mixing in a muddy puddle, and had to wonder if there was anything in this world that wouldn’t feel the blood of this fight.
Lily thought a moment. “It has to end sometime. All wars end.”
Looking back left, she saw a strange blue shape that had not been there before, slumped on the ground like a pile of trash bags. Narrowing her eyes at it, she saw it move, and pointed her wand at it, slowly backing towards the fire escape. The figure grew, becoming taller, leaner, with arms and a head, and as Lily felt her back gently graze the metal stairs, the figure spoke.
Undoubtedly, this bonfire night will be one to remember forever...
Lily was off with Becky, who was ill, probably making her soup or something. He didn’t quite like that she was devoting so much time to her sick friend, because he had noticed that she was starting to get sick, too.
Right on top of that joy, surrounding it like a case, was absolute terror, the pure fear that something outside these safe walls of home would come in and hurt this innocent little joy she had always longed for. These were the thoughts she could see on her husband’s face, her husband who had longed for this just like she had, who had finally accepted that it would not happen, and now was being given his desire, with a huge price.
“Well, it’s wonderful everyone came over for dinner,” she said, watching her family. “I personally cannot think of a better Christmas present than all of us being together. And since I have all the people I love here in one room, James and I have an announcement.”
The silence, now, seemed deeper as they all tried to comprehend this news. Lily knew she and James had only faced Voldemort twice, but that the Longbottoms, now Aurors, had faced him three times. They, she knew, were ten weeks pregnant, and due at the end of July, whereas she was eight and a half, scheduled for August. Alice looked sick, and Frank’s face was unreadable. Lily squeezed James’ hand, seeing he looked shell shocked.
"Guess what today is," he murmured in her ear.
"Alright, soon enough we should see…" he murmured, looking at James expectantly.
"It has been so long since I’ve seen you," Voldemort mused. "Why, since Guy Fawkes, I believe."
Sirius jumped to his feet and cupped a hand to his mouth. "GOOOO LIILLYYYY!!!!" he yelled, causing the passing medi-witch to crack up in laughter. "YOU CAN DOOOO IIIITTTT!!!" Remus, laughing, stood up and joined in, giving some quidditch-style hooting and both of them cheering madly as if "Lily" were the name of their favorite quidditch team and said team were playing for the world cup. Corette, face buried in her hands, was shaking her head, torn between embarrassment and amusement. They heard a few smattered laughs from the delivery room.
"The youngest brother was the humblest and also the wisest of the brothers, and he did not trust Death. So he asked for something which would enable him to go forth from that place without being followed by Death. And Death, most unwillingly, handed over his own Cloak of Invisibility.... But though Death searched for the third brother for many years," Becky read, "he was never able to find him."
