    Grace was closely followed by chaos and trouble. She said things no one else dared, did things no one else dared. She simply did things instead of dreaming about it. James had always stayed out of her way, keeping distance, being safe. But when their paths cross in the winter of his seventh year, he sees his chance to help a lost girl. But who knew that underway he would learn a thing or two from the wild girl of the school?

    “You don’t know what it’s like, do you? Having the Dark Lord penetrate your mind, seeing everything, knowing what will hurt you… using that against you… It’s not just a little nightmare.”

    Draco Malfoy never liked Astoria Greengrass much, but maybe the exact thing he needs to finally move on, is a little help from the girl who could always see through him like no one else.

    Control. Knowledge. Keeping James Potter at a safe distance from her. These, Lily thrives for. These, Lily needs. But somehow, they slip out of her grasp - Lily doesn't have control, doesn't have knowledge, and most importantly, can't keep James Potter away from her. How did this happen to her?

    James' life is not as it should be. He can't play Quidditch as he used to anymore, he lost the girl he loves, he barely talks to his friends anymore and he drinks too much on the rocks. Furthermore, Lily Evans seems to always be there when he's in the weakest state.
    That’s the way things are. Karma screws you over and life hates you and wants to see you lie on the ground, howling in pain.

    Does it ever stop?
