Summary: Lying to myself, lying to my friends, lying to Remus, to Sev . . . to James. I couldn't do it anymore. I had to suck it up . . . and fall in love.
In the midst of a war, Lily Evans, consumed by fear for her small family and her own identity as "Muggleborn", finds herself turning to the least likely person for protection and companionship - James Potter. This is yet another story of that fateful seventh year, when two people came together, and gave birth to a saga.
Summary: Lily Evans hates James Potter; he's reckless, careless, hopeless. James Potter loves Lily Evans; she's feisty, forward, firm. Over their years at Hogwarts, both of them change, and their love eventually becomes the stuff of legend. This is the story of how that love started and how it touched the lives of everyone they knew.
Summary: The Marauders have left school behind them just as war has fallen across the Wizarding World at last--quiet and invisible, but war nonetheless. And on the front lines is this small group of young Hogwarts graduates who have moved from pranking battles to something far more serious.
In this third and final installment to the James and Lily story begun in “Trickster” and “Stars Apart,” the Marauders join their friends in the Order as a part of what feels more and more like a fight they have no chance of winning. In the middle of it all, love grows and friendships break, trust forms and wavers, and warriors who are barely more than children must learn not only how to fight but what they are fighting for.
Summary: As N.E.W.T.s quickly approach, Lily Evans struggles with her once-perfect boggart spell, while James Potter cannot seem to master the Patronus Charm. A strange journey through a long-lost room within the castle guides the two Heads through their troubles, leading them to an unexpected end where they find much more than the ability to master their magic.

Summary: James decides it is time to tell Harry the story of how he and Lily met and fell in love. Unfortunately, his recollection of their initial meeting and subsequent interactions seems to be quite different from Lily's.
Summary: James was vaguely aware that the sky outside his window produced a bright crimson. He could have thought of blood. He could have thought of the fate right before him. His last thought, at the end, was of Lily's smile.
Summary: In a world ruled by blood and money, James Potter has never once been denied anything he wanted, except Lily Evans. With neither blood status nor money, Lily can only rely on her vibrant personality to force others to see her worth. As their final year at Hogwarts ends and they are forced out of school, both find that the real world presents challenges that hadn't been expecting and problems they don't know how to overcome.
Summary: Based on a popular holiday song, in which James and Lily find themselves thrown together when a winter storm outside forces Lily to stay a bit later than she expected after a holiday party at the Potter's house.
Happy Holidays, MNFF!
Summary: A little story about the best piece of news the Potters received one snowy day.
Summary: Seven months after leaving Hogwarts, James Potter is fighting for the Order of the Phoenix. When Lily Evans joins the resistance, his life is turned upside down.

Summary: On their first Halloween as husband and wife, James and Lily spent it apart but had very similar nights. But when the war began to creep between them, they reminded themselves of the reason they were fighting. And nine months later, they knew it for certain.
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
Summary: As Lord Voldemort gains power, James Potter and Lily Evans join the Order of the Phoenix to make a difference. When Lily learns that the Dark Lord is seeking a relic of the late Salazar Slytherin that can mass-murder Muggle populations, it's a race against time to find and destroy it. But while defying Voldemort thrice, the two also manage to uncover a few secrets along the way...
Summary: Lily has always had a picture in her head of her future -- a wistful, far-too-good-to-be-true image of happiness and sunshine and flowers, of her and James walking off into the sunset, unencumbered by the darkness within the most evil of people who walked this earth.
Of course, of course she should have known that things weren’t going to be that simple.
