Summary: Summary: Christmas 1976. Lily Evans is standing in the shadow of a war that for the first time is affecting her Christmas spirit. A reprieve from the gloom comes in the form of a Muggle boy from her hometown, someone who the war cannot touch and is unaffected by the fear it causes. However, dark times lie ahead, and Lily begins to realise that there are some things she just cannot escape, however hard she tries.

Also nominated for Best Marauder Story in the QSQs! Thank you!
Summary: This is a story about (mostly) the Marauders and their 5th-7th years at Hogwarts. Snape dwells on his withering friendship with Lily, James decides that he is in love, and Sirius gets involved with a new girl, and for the first time finds himself with more on his mind than mischief-making with his friends and Quidditch. And that's only the beginning.

Summary: '...Benjy Fenwick, he copped it too, we only ever found bits of him ...'
