Summary: A collection of letters from Lily to Sirius
This was written when I saw it was Lily/Padfoot11333's birthday. I had the idea in my head for a while, and it seemed the perfect time to write it. Sorry it's so late.
Summary: Glimpses into Remus Lupin's life at Hogwarts, all trying to answer the question: Is Remus a normal wizard who just has a “furry little problem”, or is he a werewolf among wizards, trying to fit in where he may never truly belong?
Now with more Snape down the Whomping Willow! Check out Chapter 10: A Highly Amusing Joke and Chapter 11: Skyfall
Summary: In November 1981, Remus Lupin returns to the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix.
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Summary: Peter Pettigrew is far more complex than anyone gives him credit for. And that's all he wants, from anyone and especially from her: acknowledgement. Love. Respect. Yet unlike them, he was willing to do anything for it, including sacrificing it all.
This is Gmariam of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Cotillion of 2013.
Summary: It was not a good night for the Marauders. One dead, one arrested, one presumed dead... and one utterly lost, unforgivably betrayed. This is Remus's story of Halloween night, 1981.
Summary: At the end of the Christmas holidays, James and Sirius find that Mrs Potter has baked rather a lot of fairy cakes. Fairy cakes which they realise could be put to very good use. But even the best laid plans always have the potential to go wrong.
Summary: Written as a companion piece to my James and Lily story, The Stag and the Doe. It tells of the tragedy of Mary MacDonald, good friend to the Potters and lover of Sirius Black. While not defined as any of this in the stories, I've drawn enough conclusions to put together her story.
And it is Through the Deepest of Tragedies that True Love is Borne.
On a stormy October evening, a letter, a late night trip to the library and a secret conversation lead Lily Evans to discover that there are several mysteries in her life that only she has the capability and the inclination to solve. The first mystery is James Potter – what could turn him from the arrogant, could-care-less boy that she had previously known to someone withdrawn and far away? Then, perhaps more troubling, there is Esther Collins, the fifth year who has vanished without a trace. Furthermore, one of Lily’s best friends, Izza, is seeing a mystery boy and Lily is determined to know who.
Then there is the threat of war, backstabbing friends and NEWT’s. A disinherited and emotionally battered Sirius Black is the source of heartache for his friends, except perhaps Izza, who, with her own terrifying family, might just understand him. Lily’s closest male friend, Remus Lupin, is hiding a dangerous secret from her. Peter’s girlfriend is screwing him over, and the whole time Lily is struggling to stop the people she loves from coming apart at the seams.
Summary: Remus Lupin’s life is changed forever in one dark moment on Halloween night. Shock prompts bitter laughter, but reality brings sorrowful tears, as Remus struggles with the devastating loss of his best friends one fateful night.
Summary: James returns to the dormitory one night to find Sirius is not happy about his new relationship with Lily Evans. He is shocked to discover the reason his best friend is so upset.
Summary: It's the end of seventh year and James Potter has a lot on his mind about friendship, love and how to escape the Girls Dormitory.
Summary: Many know Sirius Black the Marauder, but few know Sirius Black the rock star.
One Christmas morning, Sirius Black awoke with an idea that would change the lives of the Marauders forever. He'd be a superstar whose fame would make him untouchable, but he has a few bugs to work out first. Bugs like the reporter Rita Skeeter who refuses to leave before snatching a nonexistent scoop, his best friend who believes a girl will make the band more diverse, and the nagging feeling he won't be able to balance both the band, groupies, and Order of the Phoenix missions and meetings.
In the meantime, he's living the dream. After all, what can you expect from a wizard rock star?
Summary: Lily is awoken yet again in the middle of the night by Harry, and this time, she's close to snapping.
Written for the amazing Gina/Gmariam, a wonderful friend and fabulous James/Lily writer ♥

Summary: "Voldemort meant little to us then. It was just a name our frightened parents tossed around. They had grown up during Grindelwald's reign - knew nothing but fear. They were paranoid. To us, fear was tangible only in the moments spent considering another loss to Slytherin on the pitch."
Wedged comfortably between two eras of turmoil, the students of Hogwarts never imagined they'd go down fighting. Life at school was defined by teenage rebellion, tough classes, and nail-bitingly exciting Quidditch games. Grindelwald's defeat was news of the past, but some told of a new dark wizard on the rise by the name of Lord Voldemort...
But for Alice Emerson and Lily Evans, for Potter and Black and the rest of her class, that was simply irrelevant. The outside world stopped at Hogwarts' gates until tragedy in their fifth year brought it violently to the forefront.
Summary: There are so many colours in the world - so many in her. Only one evades her. But then, maybe she evades it.
Lily Evans always was too good for Black.
Summary: Sirius Black reveals a secret for a laugh, and it all goes wrong.
Summary: Sirius has a problem. He doesn't want to ask James's help. But could an unexpected offer from Madam Rosmerta solve everything? And will James realise that the bravado and good looks of his best friend are just a facade?
