Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Prologue

Lily and James go to read their baby son Harry a bedtime story, but are sick of the same old fairytales. They decide to tell him the story of how they met and fell in love instead, but disagree on the details. Even though Harry has fallen asleep by this time anyway, they agree to tell each other their story truthfully, to see what they each really thought of their final two years at Hogwarts.

2 Lily-hunting

“Prongs, stop staring at Lily and move,” snapped Sirius. James had been looking through the carriage window at Lily for nearly five minutes now.

3 Revenge and Underpants

"Those Guys Are So Dead."

4 A Small Difference of Opinion

“Snape did what to you after potions last week!?!” exploded James, jumping to his feet so fast that his plate fell off the table and broke with a crash on the floor. Snape, who had just walked in the hall, turned and abruptly left again.

5 Big news

Lunchtime was another haze of “Lily, please go out with me”, the more commanding “Go out with me Evans” and, Lily’s personal favourite, the “Come on Lily, how can you resist this?” which was followed by the usual ‘sexy’ dance.

6 Staying with Lily

“You could just have sex with James,” mocked Jenni.

“Yeah why haven’t you considered him at all Lily?” asked Emma, “I mean he’s totally crazy about you, and you can’t say he’s not good-looking! Just give up your damn pride woman.”

7 Funerals and Words of Consolation

“Lily it’s not your fault,” James said sorrowfully, “Look I got to go check on Remus… I’ve never seen him like this before.”

He got up and left the room, leaving Lily thinking that maybe James wasn’t quite ok with her after all.

8 Letters, Smirking and Cleanliness

Lily quickly showered and got dressed. After fixing her hair she walked into the Common Room and screamed.

The entire room was covered in lilies, cuddly toys and from the ceiling it rained heart-shaped confetti.

9 If James changes, it changes everything.

“Who can take a sunrise? Sprinkle it in dew. Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? The Candyman!” Sirius began to sing – loudly. Remus joined in for the chorus, “Oh the Candyman can! The Candyman can ‘cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good!”

2,175 26
10 Love letters and heart-aches

Lily decided this was not the time to break her friend’s innocence on the matter of Sirius Black (as far as Lily was concerned, it was the last fragment of innocence she had left), and just nodded.

2,834 24
11 Talking is a basic skill that no-one seems to be able to use

On the wall in irreversible ink was scrawled ‘Padfoot loves McKenzie P.S Marauders Rule’.

2,831 24
12 Lily needs a Hero - but a Heroine will suffice

Remus snapped his book shut and got to his feet. He yelled, “You don’t understand do you? Maybe one day when you’re mature enough to actually love someone, you’ll begin to understand what I feel!”

2,331 26
13 Halloween

“Lily, you look… beautiful,” said Hunter in awe.

2,770 24
14 Petunia's Letter

“Oh yeah,” smiled James, eyes still closed, “That was stupid of me. I love Lily.”

2,384 21
15 In which there is Quidditch

“Well we’ve got a Quidditch Game starting,” Jenni glanced at her watch, “Five minutes ago…”

2,676 24
16 Candles on a Lake

“It was me!” shouted Lauren from across the lake, “I told Hunter he should break up with you!”

“What?” screamed Lily, running back towards Lauren, “You did what?”

2,789 33
17 The Competition Begins

“Ok Sirius, we’ve got mini-muffins and two broomsticks – screw the rest, we’re off to Mexico!” yelled Jenni, running out and taking Sirius after her.

2,818 27
18 The First Clue

“They’re all going to the wrong place,” smiled Lily, “We don’t need to go to Italy at all. We need to find out who that wizard was – to the library!”

“I want to go to Italy!” moaned Sirius, but nevertheless he followed Lily to the library.

2,324 32
19 Through fire and ice - The Second Clue

“I can’t sleep,” he muttered, “I keep getting this bad feeling about this whole thing.”

2,510 15
20 The Third Clue

“I’ve got it, I’ve got it!” grinned Remus, rushing up to Lily and Lauren, “Quick, let’s get out of here!”

2,366 16
21 Of Mice and Men

“Voldemort,” Lauren finished for him, almost in a whisper, “And the Slytherins are for all we know still ahead of us!”

“We can’t let them get it!” said Sirius fiercely, “That’d just be handing it to him!”

1,727 19
22 Kalikilrath

“Ouch,” he frowned, his dignity hurt, “And I love you too sweetie.” He turned to Remus, “You too sweetie,” he added with a wink.

“Shut up and fall down the well,” laughed Remus, giving him a shove.

23 Christmas Eve and Alex's Return

“We’ve won, we’ve won!” yelled Jenni, racing up the drive to Hogwarts castle.

2,183 21
24 Love and Lies

Lily gets a wonderful Christmas gift from James, but just as everything seems to be going perfectly, things take a turn for the worse...

2,394 21
25 Unexpected

James put his hand on the handle and had begun to open the door...

2,769 30
26 Endings

“No change,” Sirius told Jenni, Lauren and Peter who were all still waiting outside the ward Remus was in, “The healer is expecting the results back any minute.”

3,778 28
27 A Heartfelt Engagement

“No you don’t!” James exclaimed, surprised by the stupidity of her statement, “How can you possibly know what I’m going through?”

2,723 32
28 Egypt Part One

“Scared much?” Lauren asked him with an evil grin.

2,508 25
29 Egypt: Part Two

“Stop it Lauren, please listen to me this time. We both know it, why can’t you let us be together?” asked Mikey.

2,561 26
30 Where Time and Power Meet

“Do you think anyone is there yet?” asked Lily, speaking for the first time since they’d entered the staircase.

“No, we’re going to win,” Sirius assured her.

2,540 26
31 The Secrets Revealed

“On your way to Dumbledore eh?” laughed James, “I knew it! You do have the amulet! I knew it. Who else would be trusted with it?”

3,481 31
32 A Bad Morning

“Oh come on Lily, I’m just sick of wasting time like this,” James complained, “You know that I still like you, and you like me too. I’ve seen you watching me.”

3,017 13
33 Valentine's Day Again

James looked at her seriously, “Because we’re not supposed to move on Lily. I love you, and I really mean that. I’ll never be over you.”

3,139 16
34 The Choice

“You can do it,” Jenni assured her, “He loves you.”

3,014 17
35 The Prank

“Who’d want to kidnap Wormtail?” laughed James, “Unless he is with Katie of course. Maybe she didn’t let him go this time.”

“I told him that was a risk of dating,” agreed Sirius with a grin.

4,514 9
36 The Quidditch Final

James woke up with a new sense of purpose. The Quidditch Cup final would be in two days – his last quidditch match ever at Hogwarts.

3,576 15
37 A Disturbance in the Great Hall

“I’m going to ask Lily to marry me,” James grinned. Sirius’ hand jumped with his surprise, and the tower exploded. Once they’d reattached Remus’ eyebrows, Sirius and Remus began to question him.

3,376 14
38 Final Days

She was engaged. She could do whatever the hell she wanted!

2,745 2
39 Graduation
