Summary: Inspiration can come from the most unlikely of sources.
A late-night chat with Sirius leads James to confront a hidden insecurity, and may just give him the push he needs to grow up.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes
Every student plans on making their final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry the most memorable one ever. Eight in particular want to make those minutes really count. Except, they each have a different idea of how to go about doing it.
James Potter would like to waltz into Lily Evans’s life and throw it completely off course. Julie McGuire didn’t exactly plan on rescuing Remus Lupin, but now that she has, why not just go with it? Marlene McKinnon should have know what she got herself into when she kissed Sirius Black the first time, but that boy has a way of knocking her senseless. Emmeline Vance had planned to just sit back and watch it all happen, until Roxanna Louchester, her ex-friend, barged in and turned everything upside down.
Suddenly they’ve gone from only wanting the most memorable year, to achieving it. It’s a year of love and lust. It’s a year of tears and fights. It’s a year of finding yourself. It’s a year of learning to lose. It’s a year that none of them are likely to forget.
Summary: October 31st, 1981. That was the night that Sirius Black lost everything. James and Lily were dead, and Harry's fate, undermined, and Sirius wanted only one thing: revenge against the traitor that took it all from him.
This is my take on Sirius and his reaction the night the Potters were killed.
Summary: On a lazy Saturday afternoon in their fifth year, two of the Marauders are staying inside talking – while the other two are outside and get an idea. Why not make a map of Hogwarts? It would certainly make their nightly wanderings easier, and who knows what could be done with a piece of parchment...
This is Karaley Dargen of Gryffindor writing for the final in the MWPP class on the beta boards.
Summary: It is April 1976, and Minerva McGonagall sits in her office, arranging biscuits on a plate. She knows she faces a stormy afternoon because today is the day she has to advise her four most troublesome students on their future. They call themselves the Marauders; they think they want the same thing, but Minerva knows that the differences between them will not work in everyone's favour. And so, she steels herself for a very difficult day.
This is Equinox Chick submitting her final for the MWPP class.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I doubt that shocks you.
This story is very much a prequel to The Lions of Gryffindor, but either can be read without knowledge of the other.
In shock at the nomination for a 2009 QSQ award.
Summary: Sequel to 'The Watch Unwinds Until It Stops.'
The Black brothers' lives continue to unfold in unexpected directions. For Regulus, his final year at Hogwarts will bring many difficult decisions about life, friends, family, love, and the war that is going on behind the scenes.
Summary: “For he who lives more lives than one: More deaths than one must die." - Oscar Wilde
Follow the Marauders in their 6th year--a tale of the complications of friendship, the crippling effects of fear, and the power of love. This is what JKR didn't tell you.
Summary: The course of true love never did run smooth. James' infatuation with Lily is driving him–and his friends–insane! Peter accuses the fiery redhead of being cold-hearted, Remus suggests growing-up and Sirius won't stop bickering with Tabitha while coming up with plans that turn out for worse! Add to that romantic tribulations of their own, lycanthropy and the imminent rise of the dark arts and you ought to find more than just a bit of mischief and mayhem.
Follow Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs through their last two years at Hogwarts, were merlin-knows what they will get up to! Ragging hormones, danger, grief and love are one of the few things they'll face and, of course, let's not forget about pranks. After all, that's why the girls at Hogwarts sigh, the teachers swear and Dumbledore just chuckles.
CHAPTER THREE IN THE QUEUE, Excerpt:
“As I was saying,” Lily continued, “Professor Goone...well, he hasn’t moved for the last twenty minutes, not even with all this noise.”
Peter breathed in, heavily. “You don’t think he’s dead, do you?”
“Shouldn’t we...I don’t know, try to wake him up?” she suggested, ignoring Peter’s remark.
“Are you mad?” exclaimed Sirius. “Why would you do that? He’s having a jolly good time sleeping; we’re having a jolly good time talking. Everybody wins.”
Lily didn’t even spare a glance at Sirius; instead she kept her eyes focussed on Remus. “So, what do you think?” she asked him.
Remus shrugged. “I’m not sure–wouldn’t he feel embarrassed that we caught him sleeping in class if we wake him up?”
“Right,” said Sirius. “We’d hurt his feelings!”
Summary: James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew. Known throughout their later school years as the Marauders. Notorious for pranking even the most proper professors and popular students. Friends until the end.
But when a conflict arises during third year, will the boys be able to put aside their feelings and remain friends?
This is the events that followed the Gryffindor Quidditch try-outs of 1973.
This is ginnygirl16 from Slytherin writing my final for the MWPP: The Truth Revealed class.
Summary: After facing ten Death Eaters alone, where else would a man go but to his best friend? However, instead of the man, he got the wife. Better for him? Maybe...
How do you comfort your husband’s best friend when he has come close to death? Over a cup of tea, of course.
I do not own anything you recognise. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to escape to her world for a little while.
Summary: Anne and Peter have been friends since they can remember. They saw themselves more as siblings than simply friends, promising each other to always stay together.
Can this promise be held, or will a years-long friendship break over the words uttered by a neutral force?
Summary: Everyone is on Christmas holidays, only Sirius and Lily are left at Hogwarts. And when one is locked out of the common room with someone else, what else to do than to talk?
Summary: It is not the full moon, nor an alcoholic night gone wrong, nor a day before finals. No. It is the first meeting of junior members of the Order of the Phoenix, and Remus is terrified out of his wits.
A Remus-centric one-shot.
Lyrics taken from "Butterflies and Hurricanes" by Muse.
Summary: In every little girl’s life there is someone special –a role model. In Lily Evans’ it was her father.
Summary: Peter Pettigrew was always the misunderstood one. He was never talented on the Quidditch pitch like James. He couldn't woo the girls like Sirius. Nor, was he the well-liked Prefect and sometimes soft-spoken Remus. So how did he fit into this famous group of boys? Was he just the wimpy kid who just sort of tagged along behind them? No, he was not. So what was he?
Summary: Stella Prewett has been waiting to attend Hogwarts for as long as she can remember. Her first year surpasses her expectations by far; in addition to dull lessons and tangled castle corridors, there are ill-behaved cousins, Qudditch tryouts, and, of course, the lovable James Potter and his mischievous friends.
Meanwhile, Lord Voldemort's threat to the peaceful Wizarding world has increased. Stella, as a member of a prominent pureblood family, must choose her loyalties with care.
Summary: Follow the famous Marauders through their years at Hogwarts as they deal with school, friendship, love, betrayal, and what it really means to be a true Gryffindor.
