Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Prolouge : My memories are for the taking

Kristen had always been James Potter's best friend even though she was a muggle. When she suddenly finds out that she's a witch though and meets James's wizard friends how will she take it? Especially when a certain cocky, playboy, annoying prat enters the picture and claims that he alone is the best friend of James Potter. She states that Sirius Black's infamous charm will never get to her. Maybe it won't, well at least not until her charm gets past him first.

James Potter led to separate lives. He had his muggle best friend Kristen, a vivacious and spirited girl, and his wizarding world best friend Sirius, a cocky and extremely flirtatious boy.

29 Summer at the St.Claire's

Thank Merlin though, I'm finally getting into fourth year, where things actually start to pick up. Anyways, about the summary of this chapter. It's the St.Claire's residence.

2,993 11
33 Slugs and Runs

Because I love you all so very much, I've decided to post once more before I leave. The next chapter should be up in about a week and half. But until then, I hope you enjoy this chapter. It's more of a filler, simply letting you know what's going on in their regular lives, you know, aside from most of the drama. p.s. I use most very lightly

2,363 11
34 Curiosity Killed the Cat

What happens when Sirius is overcome by bouts of curiosity.

2,933 11

39 The game, and things that occured after

Slytherin vs. Gryffindor! I hope the outsome of the game isn't too utterly predicatble, oh, and a warning, I really such at writing quidditch, like, really, really suck. So please forgive the match, and perhaps pay more attention to the things that occured after it.

43 The Funeral

Orion Black's funeral does not just celebrate the death himself, but also the death of something that Sirius has been so eagerly hoping for.

5,052 21
44 83%

So the chapter title doesn't really have mich to do with the story (the chapter picture doesn't really eiter) and yet, it has everything to do with it. Yeah, have fun figuring that out. Also, this chapter has some mild spoilers of DH, so be warned.

3,029 17
45 The Sound of Pullling Heaven Down

"I don't know why you don't like me! I’m pretty, I know I am, and so are you. The two prettiest people should be together, it only makes sense!” -Kristen St.Claire
A/N Just a warning, I'm going to go back through my story soon and do major editing. This may include the merging of chapters, some change in information, orthe change of a chapter name. I will let you know anytime there is a major change. But this one is first. I'm changing the chapter name before I go back through and re-edit. It should be done quickly and painlessly for all.

4,750 19
46 The She-devil

I'm supposing you can guess what this chapter is about...

3,617 18
47 In My Place

2,996 13
48 Sex Ed.

I'm not explaining to you, you'll just have to wait and see. Oh, and a friendly reminder... “Oh great, now we’re going to get pregnant!”  Sirius Black to Kristen St.Claire

3,621 19
49 The Claim

The boys are gonna get it...

3,215 15
50 Tu es mon Ame

Dear God, please don't stone me to death! I really am truly sorry! So, so very sorry. And I know you'll probably read this chapter and think, wow, I waited a month for that? But hang in there, they're about to hit some troubled times.

3,901 12
51 Changes

Um...there's changes...

2,840 14

53 The Prank Part Deux

The second part of the long anticipated prank.

3,185 13
54 Flower Vases

Krsiten's stay at James's house and a letter from her sisters.

2,381 10
56 Rapunzel

This chapter's called, uh...enjoy I suppose.

2,522 11
57 A Certain Code of Conduct

Because A.) I love you all so very much
                 B.) I've been sick these past three days, thereby giving me tons of writing time, said writing time getting me pretty far ahead, and also surprisng myself by writing the 'revelation' chapter much earlier than expected
         and C.) I won't be home this weekend and will likely be very busy in the coming weeks I present you with this chapter. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

3,062 13
58 Part 1: Heartless Part 2: Running

Well, it seems unanimous that instead of having a quickly increasing amount of chapters you would prefer fewer updates with longer ones. But as I wrote these before that decision, I found that I could not part with either of the names. So here are two chapters as one.

7,246 10
59 Love

Here it is, the revelation chapter. Enjoy it in all its shortness.

2,174 15
60 Spy

Her new life begins...

5,511 19
61 Dreams and Schemes

Kristen suffers the consequences of being in the presence of the most evil being in existence

5,705 12
62 We're All Human

So, I'm trying to keep on a two week schedule, that's about all I can handle though. I hope you enjoy this one, I certainly did, though I think that's mostly because I realized just how much I've missed it.

5,027 6
63 Safe

So, looks like everyone's okay with this two-week updating thing, and as it is working out tremendously well on my end, I think we're going to stick with it. Enjoy the chapter!

3,933 3
64 Love Sucks

I'm just going to warn you, the title has nothing to do with the Kristen/sirius relationship.

2,774 8
65 Revolution

They must pay there debts, though, let's be honest with ourselves, how well will that really go over?

2,276 8
66 Sneak

There is some definite sneaking

3,773 9
67 Like a delicate primose, we will grow

The title is symbolic (kudos to my 11th grade Lit. teacher for teaching me the fun in symbolism). I'm sure you'll understand at least part of it, but if you want to know the whole thing, go search for some flower symbolism. P.S. Sirius gets pretty sentimental, just a fore warning.

5,851 13
68 The Complete Set

Voldermort, James hacking Lily off, and summer letters. Sorry for the unimaginative summary...

3,779 6
69 The Marriage of Bellatrix Black and Rodolphus Lestrange

The Black wedding has arrived. 

*update 1/24/09* I just added a small part in the begininning of the chapter for later events. If you don't want to look for it, that's fine, I'll include it in the intro of the next chapter.

3,983 13
70 Repercussions

I don't know how to explain this chapter, so just have fun reading it!

73 A Saint...Having Relations with Mungo / Sweet Indulgences and Four Chocolate Frogs

So, as I'm feeling particularly generous, you're getting a two for one this week.  Enjoy!
And, on a less exciting note, it's the return of chapter pictures!

6,571 11
74 Choose

I could give you a summary, but I'm going to make you read the entire thing instead.

5,643 12
75 The Plan

I would like to point out, that where I am, it is still Thursday, albeit 10:30 p.m., but I upheld my promise.

2,601 11
76 Playing God

You know how I feel about these things...

3,966 11
77 Missing

Extra long this time, since I'm not sure when I'll be able to post the next one. Most likely within two weeks.

4,355 11
78 Death

So I didn't plan on making you wait a month, it just kind of happened. I'm living in Norway for the next three months, so the last two weeks of being here have been hectic. But now you understand by extreme affinity for the country and it's frequent refrencing. Oh, and go Alexander Rybak, the pride of Norway! I'm so in love with his fairytale...

4,318 9
79 Not Fair

I really wish I could just get rid of the summary box...

3,571 5
80 Stunned

Hey, we're at number 80! Only 20 more to go before we hit a major milestone! We should also hit 1000 reviews by then if you catch my drift  *nudge*nudge*

3,634 13
81 The Power of Touch

I don't want to give a summary and I feel that that is my author...itarion right!

3,068 7
82 Nymphomaniac

Nymphomaniac - noun A female with excessive and uncontrollable sexual desires.

P.S. This is why the rating is now Mature

4,622 13
83 Violent Tendencies

I think I'm about to hack alot of you off, so know that I do it without the intention to simply make you angry and that I beg your forgiveness.

4,465 10
84 å elske en jente

You can plug that in a translator if you wish, though I promise to include translations of everything at the end of the next chapter.

3,755 14
85 "Happy Your Legal Day!"

Why yes I am ashamed of myself, thank you for asking.

4,718 5
86 A Prior Engagement

The continuation, essentially. I don't know, I think I'm going to hire someone to write summaries for me.

3,559 7
87 An Arrogant Toe-Rag

Yes, this is a Sirius/OC story, but it's nice to be reminded of the couple that started it all.

2,660 15
88 Errand Boy

Get ready for the +5,000 word chapter...

5,608 9
89 A Concert to Remember (Sort of)


3,871 4
90 Good Morning Beautiful

So, there was this chicken, and he crossed a road, and I, personally, believe it was to get to the other side.

3,587 10
91 Highs and Lows

So James is Head Boy, yeah, I fudged that by not making him a prefect sixth year, which according to Mrs. Weasley you had to be in order to be Head Boy, but I figured Captains could have equal standing. Not a summary, but a note nonetheless

3,817 9
92 Getting James Back

So, it turns out, people are quite serious when they say college finals are just about the worst times you will ever experience.

3,210 4
93 False Promises

If you haven't checked this story in a while, I suggest going back up to 92 and reading that also.

3,018 8
94 Pineapple Sweets

Sorry about the wait on this one. The next chapter is about 50% done, so hopefully it comes out in a timely manner. Also, I'm sorry it's short, but that's the only place I could cut it off.

2,240 4
95 An Unexpected Raid and the subsequent things that followed.

This chapter is a little more explicit than others, just a friendly warning.

3,172 5
96 Crazy

Sorry, I know this has been a long time coming. Midterms you know...

3,484 8
97 Ms Evans

Ms Evans get more than she bargained for

4,888 10
98 When Pigs Fly

Yeah, sorry, I had five finals, they were Hell.

7,070 6
99 Pots and Kettles

Yeah, sorry about that horrible delay

5,386 12
100 Secrets and Broom Closets

Hope you're ready. Sorry this took so long, it took me forever to be sure that it was just right for you.

4,752 30
101 Rampaging Ex-girlfriends

I didn't really mean to make it a year long wait, and I know most of my original readers have moved on. So if you're new, welcome, and yes, these long waits are somewhat typical. Sadly, real life makes things life having fun or doing stuff that is not related to school or work really difficult.

3,453 4
102 The Break Up

Don't let the title scare you. I promise, you will enjoy it. And, on a side note, this is in honor of the amazing movie that I saw last night. I feel like a major part of my childhood ended, but writing this makes me feel like it just might go on.

3,497 5
103 Caught

Well, it was a good plan. At least for a while.
