Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Chapter One: I'd Rather Die

Image hosted by Photobucket.com Thanks, Tinka 4 Ever, for the banner! Lily Evans is overreacting again. She told James Potter she'd rather die than go out with 'a jerk like him.' Of course, she didn't pay much attention to him saying 'I'd rather die than see you with some other jerk.' Back in her seventh year, she finds that he hasn't changed much. . .or has he? Will she find herself hating him even more? Or will she find herself falling for him?

9 Chapter Nine: The Game of Love

“Come on Evans, you know you want to go out with me! Just give me a chance!” James Potter begged. “I'd rather die than go out with a jerk like you Potter! You think you're so special, don't you? Well, you're not! Just because you can date any other girl here at Hogwarts doesn't necessarily mean that you can date me too!” Lily Evans shouted. “'I'd rather die...' Pretty harsh, don't you think? It wouldn't be the end of the world,” James said. Then, more to himself than anyone else, he added “I'd rather die than see you in the arms of another guy,” before walking off.
