By any other name would smell as sweet

Night falls, and four people are out to observe the full moon: Severus Snape, heartbroken over his loss of Lily Evans, Sirius Black, keen to take advantage of his enemy's despair, James Potter, rushing to rescue his hated opponent from his best friend - Remus Lupin, confined to the Whomping Willow - and Lily Evans herself, seeking solitude after her argument with her ex-friend in the corridor. But instead of solitude and comfort in the Hogwarts grounds, she finds out some things she wasn't supposed to know....Severus Snape is lured inside the knothole, Sirius Black crows over his triumph, James Potter rescues his foe, Remus Lupin, werewolf, nearly destroys any future for his human side - and Lily Evans weeps in the shadow of the beech tree, for too many reasons to count..... A more eventful moon than any of them wanted.

This is for Carole/EquinoxChick, and much less than she deserves. You are an incredible, magnificent person, and I still completely fangirl you. If I ever get close to what you are/have now, just talent-wise and with all the ideas you always have, I'd be happy. I really admire you and what you do a lot, so don't ever change.
Muchas muchas Gracias to Nat/hestiajones for helping me out, event though she should have been in bed.

Life is like solid stone...just bits and pieces mixed with time to create something stronger...

The story of the Marauders, their classmates, their 7th year, and those bits and pieces, and time going on...solid stone.
...sand and water, and a million years gone by.

Summary: Severus Snape fell off his broom the first time he tried to fly. He had no natural talent, not like the loathsome Potter, and couldn't really see the point at all in Quidditch.
But then he saw Lily watching a certain Chaser play and suddenly flying becomes very important.
I am not JK Rowling and I know nothing about flying on a broomstick. This is all made up.
Thank you Natalie (thelastolympian) for beta'ing this story in its original form a whole year ago.
