Summary: Remus Lupin and Potions class have never been the best of friends. And then he brews something unusual... “It’s like some kind of liquid Imperius! You tell me to do something and I want to do it!” Sirius shouted.
Life has never been so difficult, or so dangerous. In midst of the deaths, attacks, violence and betrayal, James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, Lily, Alice and Violet leave Hogwarts forever to live a new life as adults. With the secret organization that Dumbledore founded, known as the Order of the Phoenix, they risk their lives to fight against the terrible Lord Voldemort who threatens to take over everything they live for. In spite of the terror, good things still happen, and most ties of friendship still endure through hardship.
We join the Marauders and their friends as they struggle through life, death, friendship, love, and betrayal. Their lives will never be the same again.

I am mudbloodproud of Hufflepuff. This is my entry for the Gauntlet.
“You're everywhere and nowhere baby, that's where you're at
Going down a bumpy hillside, in your hippy hat
Flying across the country, and getting fat
Saying everything is groovy, when your tires are flat.”
Platform shoes, purple flares, short skirts and funky tops. The 1970s. Pet Rocks are the big thing. The summers are hot. The bakers’ on strike. Sex, drugs and rock and roll are busting from your living room in black and white. It’s a confusing time to be a teenager, and an even more confusing time to be a teenage witch.
It’s the summer of 76. A summer of water fights, parties, sunburns and ice cream. Every day passes in a half forgotten blur. Cloud nine doesn’t reach your high. The world is your playground!
And then you wake up.
You never thought that you could be a person people look up to. You’ve spent your life messing up and playing somebody else’s part. But it’s time for a change. The year is 1976 and you are a sixth year student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
This is your journey. And you’re in for one hell of a ride.
Summary: Marty Price works for The Cause, which involves several campaigns and petitions on a weekly basis. It has become common knowledge within Hogwarts that if you see her coming towards you with a clipboard, you should turn and walk the other way. Or perhaps deny all grasp of the English language. And if this isn’t eccentric enough, there’s also her obsessive written observations of four boys in her year, which will one day make a rather interesting book ...
Remus Lupin, meanwhile, has always been a little different, too. Poor, sweet Remus Lupin is, to the casual observer, the picture of a sensible, hard working student. However, he has three friends who have done more for him than anyone knows and they have done this because of his troubled past, troubled present and troubled future. Why the gloominess? Because Remus Lupin just so happens to be a werewolf.
So what could these two possibly have in common? And how can their stories possibly connect?

This was written by harry4lif of Ravenclaw and BE Evans of Hufflepuff for the August Interhouse Co-op Challenge.
Summary: Hullo! I'm Lily Evans, and I'm starting my seventh year at Hogwarts soon. I'm Head Girl with James Potter, which I'm secretly thrilled about, emphasis on the secretly. Seriously secretly, like even to me, kind of. Well, I must be off!
Hey! Lily! Oh, sorry, so rude of me, I'm Anna, Anna Boothe. Lily's uh, hold on let me grab my trunk, it's just slipped out of my fingers. Where was I? Oh yes, Lily's best friend. We're inseperable, really. Like two peas in a pod and whatnot. Where is she, anyway? Er, well it was nice meeting you, I've got to go catch the train!
Oi! Did you just see Evans? I've been looking for her and I thought I just saw her here. I'm rather excited about being Head Boy with her; it'll give me a chance to show her the real James Pot--
What are you going on about, Prongs? Why are you even listening to this nutter? We've got to catch the train. Probably talking to you about Evans, am I right? He would talk to a tree about Evans if he could. Moony, Wormtail, help me get this starry-eyed git onto the train before it leaves without us...
You two are helpless, don't you think, Pete?
More helpless than two Grindylows out of water...
Summary: I can tell there’s a storm coming. The skies are turning grey, and the wind is starting to pick up. Lily Evans wonders what she can do about the war that is threatening to change everything she's ever known.
