    She rose from her chair and started towards the door. James started after her to walk her out. He stumbled over the box of joke products Sirius gave him, threw out his arms and braced himself against the wall, one on either side of Lily.

    17 Chapter Seventeen: Novel Writing

    “So, we finally have the ending to this everlasting love story. Seven years of catching an episode here and there…and now it’s over…” said Sarah with a sigh.

    “Nah,” said Emma, “It’s just the beginning. Now the episodes will come closer together. The ending’s still far off…”

    “Writing a novel on my life?” asked Lily, grinning.

    Sirius looked out the frosty window and saw Regulus scurry by, his hand deep in his pockets and his chin tucked down to his chest to battle the increasing wind outside.

    He started to follow, but then looked back to the table his friends occupied. He watched as Lily and Lana threw back their head and laughed at something Emma had said. They wouldn’t miss him.

    Lily sat down next to him, “You’re a really good friend James.”

    He put down his book and looked at her, “You know, I thought we’d advanced at least a LITTLE past friends. I mean if that’s all you consider us then that would make these last few months a bit awkward…”

    1,150 17
    21 Chapter Twenty-One: Freak Dancing

    He danced by Vernon so long that he eventually started nodding his head very subtly to the music.
    ‘There we go!” James shouted. He moved onto the next group of people as Sirius also started jumping around, trying to get people to dance.
    As James was trying to get a man to move  his arms, he saw Sirius trying to teach another person how to freak dance. They caught each other’s eye and started laughing. 

    2,781 27
    22 Chapter Twenty-Two: Petunia's Wedding

    He grinned at her, “Can I ask you something?”

    “If it has anything more to do with last night then I will murder you in your sleep.”

    “No you won’t. The sight of me sleeping will be too much to handle. My sexy frame will drive you mad…”

    “God, shut UP! Just ask the question.”

    1,703 29
    23 Chapter Twenty-Three: Petunia's Reception...among other things.

    A few arguments break out...

    “Oh please,” shouted Petunia, laughing sardonically. “You enjoyed every minute of them fawning over you when you came back over the summer. Don’t try and deny it!”

    “That’s not TRUE!” screamed Lily.

    No less than six of the wine glasses sitting on the next table exploded, sending shards of clear glass flying in every direction.

    "How did you do that?” came a voice from the doorway.

    24 Extraordinary

    James takes a detour to...well, you guys will have to read to find out. Yes, I'm horrible. Anyways, here's the portion I cut out for you.

    “Do you know where we are?”

    “Yip.”

    “Are you going to tell me?”

    “Yes.”

    Lily waited a couple seconds. “Then why aren’t you telling me?”

    “You haven’t asked the question yet.”

    “Okay…James, where are we?”

    1,165 21
    25 Maybe Love

    Here's to an entire Sirius and Emma chapter!!

    With a silent scream of frustration she threw off her blankets and sprung out of bed. She pulled a jacket on over her tank top and strode over to the window, intending to throttle whatever was making that accursed noise.

    Emma froze.

    Sirius’ face was grinning at her.

    1,470 17
    26 Howlers

    James and Lily visit Albus Dumbledore for information about the Order. Afterwords the notorious Marauders play another prank.
    You have to remember, Mr. Potter, that it is one thing to want the glory of being in the Order, but another thing completely to realize what it means to serve and fight. We do not look at grades because test scores do not matter. What matters is the amount of courage and bravery one has. Would you be willing to sacrifice your life for the one you love? "

    1,320 22
    27 A dirty, lousy, cheating quidditch game

    Just as the title says...but James has a few tricks up his sleeve. But the question is, will they work?

    “What are we going to do?” asked Mark, “There’s no way we can win. A confounds charm doesn’t wear off for a few hours.”

    “Yes there is! We can still win,” said James, pacing up and down in front of his team. “Listen, we are going to attempt something that has never been done in Hogwarts history....”

    2,029 30
    28 A Visit to Headquarters

    I think a visit to Order headquarters is in order...no pun intended.

    “You promised us recruits, Dumbledore,” growled a man with grizzly gray hair, “Instead you bring us a group of teenagers.”

    1,473 19
    29 Newts...and graduation memories.

    “Funny enough,” continued Sirius, “I remembered your saucy tongue that day Miss Evans.”

    “Oh yeah? How nice of you to say so.”

    “Mhmm. I remember that day because Jamsie here asked you out.”

    “Honestly Sirius,” laughed Lily, “There were so many of those that it’s hard to keep track.”

    2,409 19
    30 Graduation Ball Rumors

    Sirius pulled Emma forward and spun her around a few times.

    “Everyone’ll know that we’re together,” he informed them, “Emma’s red dress matches my tie.” He flipped up his collar and tossed his hair out of his eyes, “Our outfits are matching.”

    “Good for you Sirius,” said Lily sarcastically, “You’ve finally learned your colours.”

    1,733 13
    31 The Graduation Ball+Marauders=tons of dancing

    They walked back to their dormitory and took one last look around the castle.

    “Yes James Potter?”

    1,910 28

    James stared at him, flabbergasted. “You just came through my floor!”

    1,288 30
    33 James and Lily Sitting in a Tree...

    Everyone screeched to a halt. It wasn’t premeditated. It had just popped out...well, more like screamed out.

    In front of them Sarah and Nathan wheeled around, their eyes wide. They stood rooted at the spot, watching for the reaction. 

    Behind them, Sirius, Emma, and Remus also stopped dead in their tracks. They had been talking and laughing. Now they were staring, a smile starting to appear on their faces.

    37 Sirius Goes Home

    “Do not call me that. I am not your mother anymore. Orion and I do not raise out children to be blood-traitors.”

    Sirius laughed, but with little humor. “Well Mum, It looks like you and Dad failed at that…because look at me, Blood-traitor to the bone, aren’t I?”

    2,955 39
    38 Tongue Exercises

    “I don’t care. I’m not going to let you boys single-handedly destroy the bakery.”

    1,609 36

    “So what do you say?”

    “I say that we’re both going to hell.”

    “Does that bother you?”

    Sirius tipped his chair back on two legs. “Nope.”

    1,992 38
    42 Foam Party

    Sirius grinned wolfishly. “It does the coolest thing when you squeeze it.”

    2,420 37
    43 Return

    The elderly lady gave him a level look. “Look Hun, you’ve got a gorgeous tush, but you’re not my type.”

    2,423 45
    44 Emma's Tale

    “But you love him, don’t you?”

    2,341 29

    3,196 39

    James’ groin had paid heavy consequences during the period when Lily had hated him.
