Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
Summary: When James makes a cocky boast that he knows Hogwarts so well he could make his way around it blindfolded, Lily unexpectedly takes his bet. Now, James has to spend twenty-four hours with a magical blindfold on, fumbling his way around the trickiest areas of the school. If he loses, he must publicly announce his failure, admit he’s not really as cool as he thinks he is, and give a large apology to Severus Snape. If he wins, however, he gains the adulated prize of giving one kiss to Lily Evans.
Suddenly, James is very keen for this bet to take place…
As for Lily… well, at first she thought it would be a grand idea to humiliate Potter, and was looking forward to his embarrassing debut. However, as any student who’s attended Hogwarts for longer than a few hours would know, Hogwarts just isn’t that safe… especially not when you’re blind, have a natural affinity for trouble, and your name is James Potter. Somehow, Lily’s been roped in for Potter-sitting, and it’s starting to look like a very, very long twenty-four hours.
Summary: Dear Santa Claus,
You see… well… I have a problem. There’s this girl…
What is James Potter to do when he has once again been rejected by his one true love, Lily Evans? Write to Santa Claus of course!
Summary: During his 7th Year, James Potter is forced into a political marriage with a girl he can't stand. Her name is Arabelle de Champagne, she is part veela, and according to most people, the most beautiful witch anyone will ever lay eyes on. But not to James. To him, Arabelle is simply the most obnoxious and conceited person he has ever met, but he still has to at least pretend that he is in love with her, and pretend he is completely over Lily Evans. And how will Lily react to the news? Will she finally realize what she has been trying to deny for years?
Summary: A fear of commitement drives Lily away. Circumstance gives them another chance, but old friends could be there end. This is the story of James Potter and Lily Evans, the year after Hogwarts.
Excerpt from the new chapter:
He doesn’t want you to kiss him, she told herself rationally.
“No p-,” she started
Summary: I'm not really sure how or when it happened. I'd say somewhere between when he saved my life (and didn't even mention it!) and our late-night conversation. Or maybe in third year, but I just repressed it. No matter when it happened, something clicked with James Potter, and I felt like a fool. Especially when I learned that he had a girlfriend. Hopefully with stories of a nude Petunia and my charm, he'll see the light.
This will be six chapters.
Summary: It's the end of sixth year, and James talks to Lily. And she smiles.
Summary: Lily has planned this meeting from the day she and James began dating. First, there would be the greetings between James and her parents. Then, dinner would come. This would be closely followed by a time to just chat and have her parents and boyfriend become acquainted with each other. Everything would be perfect. But this all changes after her sister’s insufferable boyfriend shows up, “Black” magic goes haywire, and her parents don’t return from ‘their honeymoon all over again’ until the next day. Couples battle it out, and it seems no one will make it out in one piece after three arm wrestling matches, a bounding black dog, and an angry exchange. This meeting is certainly not going as planned...
Chapter 7 Updated!!

Summary: Assigned to work on a project together, James Potter and Lily Evans find themselves getting to know one another through a silly game James has devised. A light, fluffy, slightly cliche one-shot. "Don’t look at me like that! I’m going to behave today." *one-shot*
Summary: Lily Evans has experienced losses of family members and is confused about everything. She feels so lonely in a dangerous world and is tense. That is, until an unexpected boy in the name of James Potter comes into her world and makes her laugh and love. This is the story of Lily and James.
Summary: Why? Why had I done it? Why did I go around pushing away every good thing or person that ever happened to me? Was it just in my nature to ruin things?

Ratings for second chapter.
Summary: We all know that Lily and James fell in love after years of fighting ... but what about the years before that? Why did they hate each other so intensely? What caused them to argue so much?
Well, those are some of the questions I set out to try and answer!Follow Lily and James (or Evans and Potter as they like to call each other) through their seven years at Hogwarts; one chapter per year, and maybe we'll find the answers to some of these questions.
Summary: It's hard to let go, it's even harder realizing that you can't. JamesLily Oneshot.
Summary: New year, new start, new feelings. Has James' newly deflated ego and mature attitude finally won over the heart of Lily Evans? With a mixture of embarrassing situations, falling out of bed, and roaming hands, this year could be an interesting one.
My first fanfic everybody, so any criticism is very welcome! enjoy!
Summary: James has tried. Now it's time to give up.
I’m going to let her go. I’m going to let her be her own person, without me around. Without me around to bother her anymore.
A one-shot from James POV about trying to give up
SEQUEL It Wasn't You, It Was Me NOW ON MNFF!
Summary: Dumbledore has a very good idea. True, it may be termed as 'illegal,' but when it concerns the happiness and futures of two sixth-years, James Potter and Lily Evans, 'illegal' isn't really important, is it? His portraits agree.
And while it could be said that two inexperienced students should never be responsible for a mass construction project and the hosting of an international festival... well, the teachers of Hogwarts have never really paid attention to propreity, have they?
Summary: James wasn't good for Lily. She knew that. But sometimes, it's not that easy.
