HP L-J - His Happiest MomentEvery day since fourth year he'd asked her out. At first, only to tease, but gradually it became the highlight of his day. He grew invested in the question, and her answer. James Potter was nothing if not stubborn, and completely convinced that one of those days she couldn't help but say yes. In seventh year, she proved him right by doing just that, and it was the happiest day of his life. Or so he thought until today.HP L-J - His Happiest Moment5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"James, really, it's only two hours until the ceremony. Then we'll be together again, married and off to the honeymoon!"
His arms were firmly wrapped around her waist, clinging to her as though his life depended on it. Maybe it did, he thought dramatically. "Anything can happen in two hours. Two hours away from me and you might change your mind." He said it with the tease in his voice she knew so well, dropping kisses across her breastbone when she tried to pull away. "I need to make sure you're completely convinced."
"And if I'm not?"

C'è stato un tempo in cui lo specchio non mi restituiva sempre lo stesso volto corrucciato, grave, tetro...
C'è stato un tempo in cui questo viso non sembrava scolpito nel marmo da un artista melanconico e disperato intento a portare fuori di sè l'immagine di un uomo stanco, frustato ed invecchiato troppo in fretta.
È sempre stato sottile, giallino e malaticcio, ma c'è stato un tempo in cui un paio di enormi occhi verdi mi mostravano il riflesso di un ragazzo sereno, e gli unici solchi erano quelli delle fossette di un sorriso.
Tempo dell'infanzia, tempo della pienezza...
C'è stato un tempo in cui mi incantavo a guardarla, e pensavo che avremmo avuto una figlia che sarebbe stata bella quanto lei.
C'è stato un tempo in cui avrei potuto avere tutto, e non volevo la morte. Adesso, che non posso più avere nulla, voglio solo una morte che sia più utile di questa vita patetica, che possa redimermi.

Chapter One - Scorpius Malfoy
I closed my eyes, content with the lazy day I was finally experiencing (and a day I had been looking forward to) since my O.W.L.S. ended. Albus was opposite me, in front of the coffee table, opening his new wizard chess set he got for Christmas--he had never had time to use it before. I smirked.
"Ready to lose, Al?"
He laughed. "Sure, I'll try so you can feel better about yourself."
I threw one of the pieces at him and grinned when it struck his head.
"Ow!" He chucked a knight at me, hitting me in the jaw. "Ow!"
Rose stepped into the Slytherin common room to find the two of us tackling each other, with Albus's glasses in my hand and poking his forehead with a chess piece. She laughed, which made us both look up (Albus with a small red mark on his forehead from the constant tapping of marble on it), and I knew my grin brightened at the sight of her--not that I would admit it, of course.
"You both are such children," she tried to scold us, but

Prologue - Scorpius Malfoy
"Albus, come on!"
"Has anyone seen a toad anywhere?"
"We already left! How are you talking to your mum?"
"That's how you cried for your mum, Sean, I'm mocking you!"
I chuckled to myself as I lugged my trunk down the corridor of the train. So many people had so much going on and we had only been on the train for three minutes. I walked past many compartments before finding a few with space, but all of the students glared at me, already knowing my identity. Hogwarts wasn't looking too good to me so far.
All of the compartments I saw were either full or didn't want my company, so I decided to turn my too bloody expensive trunk into a chair and began to read from some of the books I brought with me (What was I supposed to do? Sit on the roof of the cars?). I easily kept to myself--no one really came out of their compartments--but the lonely feeling I got wasn't helping me to enjoy my book. I sighed (as Rose now tea
Severus Snape and the Fall...Severus Snape stood in line for the concert he had been waiting for for the past 3 months. He would never admit to anyone at the school that he would ever be here, it would just be too embarassing if his fellow professors knew that he still hadn't outgrown his love for Muggle hard rock as he grew up. He certainly hoped that none of his students would ever find out. How would it look if the head of Slytherin house was found standing in line with mere Muggles waiting to get into the arena to see a group of four musicians? He had his arms crossed so no one would see the hideous mark on his arm that he had gotten when he was young and foolish. Of course, he was dressed like everyone else, black jeans and a black t-shirt, his lank black hair falling about his face and reaching his chest. He looked like everyone else except for the slim ebony shaft in the hidden pocket of his jeans.Severus Snape and the Fall...9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Peter Pettigrew had eaten eighteen mince pies in under five minutes, beating both Sirius and Frank to the record of Gryffindor Fastest Eater '78. He had also been tremendously ill after and was now staggering up the stairs to the hospital wing. Remus and James were either side of him, helping him up whilst Sirius walked behind, both laughing and choking.
"Merlin's wand, Pete! You out-ate Frank! I never thought that'd happen!" James was saying as they hauled him along.
"Shame Pete doesn't share Frank's metabolism.." Sirius muttered, coming up the stairs behind them. Peter groaned in response.
Madam Promfey was nursing some poor first year in a bed close to the door, she made a brief glance up as two boys unceremoniously dragged their friend in.
"Oh? And what have we done this time?" She asked, clearing away the healing potions and wheeling the tray away from the bed. She pulled the curtain to and rose a brow at Peter, swaying on the spot and covered with the crumbs of his victory.

It had been a long hot day. James's hair stuck to the back of his neck as he walked down the path to the gate in front of his parent's cottage. He leaned over it, sighing, as there was no sign of life moving along the dirt road. The wind was picking up now, rolling across the field that bordered the road, rippling it as though it were a great golden ocean. Dark clouds were appearing on the horizon, framing the gold with dark blue. James looked over into Mrs. Wittle's yard, where the well endowed Mrs. Wittle herself was hastily pulling down her laundry in anticipation of the impending storm. She glanced at the clouds worryingly as she pulled down her last pair of pinstriped knickers, catching James in her eyesight and waving. James waved back, watching as she turned and collected her lawn gnomes and took them inside with her. James turned his attention back to the road, ruffling his hair in the wind. No sign of Sirius yet, but his excitement was mounting as the clouds approached. The da

Sheepishly she looked down at her rainbow painted toes and realized her mistake. "What would I do without you?" Rosie grabbed the footwear before prancing down the walkway past the trolley and to the prefects' compartment. She slipped into the seat by Albus barely late for the meeting. Things began with Willow Wood and her brother Wes giving the speech to Rosie, Albus and the other prefects informing them of all the practices and protocols that they may have forgotten from Headmaster McGonagall's annual speech. Halfway through Wes reminding them of the after curfew watch shifts the door slid open and a particularly late bloke sauntered in.

ConvictionLily had been perched on the window sill in the living room for the good part of an hour. She had returned from work early and immediately discarded her formal robes in favour of her most comfortable pyjama bottoms and a simple t-shirt. She had been watching the mundane street below, finding comfort in the lives of strangers as they went about their business, unaffected by the war raging on behind veiled magical doorways. She gazed off down the end of the road, wanting to put her head through the window so that she could see around the corner; half expecting James to be sauntering down the road looking incredibly pleased with his Sainsbury's carrier bag, full of completely random choices of food. She couldn't help but smile fondly at the prompted memory.Conviction4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"What's going on?" Remus had been doing his Runes homework when James burst through the dorm door. Without a word, the taller boy pulled Remus from his bed and down the stairs. The common room was empty except for a few older students and the other two Marauders.
Sirius and Peter were both sitting at one of the larger, round tables near the portrait hole. Peter was looking between Sirius and the others expectantly while Sirius was sitting there with a smug grin. "Guess what I nicked."
Remus looked at the floor around the table and saw something being covered up by a blanket. "Is it that?" he asked, trying to sound stern but couldn't keep the smile off of his face.
Peter and James both looked down at the pile as well as Sirius got up from his seat. "Very observant, Messer Moony." He flung the blanket away, revealing four large pumpkins. "Didn't really nick them, o' course," he said, tossing the cover over his shoulder where it landed on th
