It was just 10 o clock at the first of September.
The early ones nervously made their way through the daily crowd that was filling the Kings Cross station.
Common mum! a girl with a large brown cat, that lay lazily in her arms, squeaked.
Dont worry honey the women next to her answered, while pushing the trolley, on which lay a large trunk. the train wont leave in another hour, so we have plenty of time!
Not one of the people, Muggles and wizards alike, noticed a little boy standing in the middle of the station with a large trunk beside him.
His long brown hair was pulled back in a ponytail, and long strings of escaped hair covered his scarred face.
He wore old clothes that were in serious need of replacement, and his warm brown eyes stared at the place his father ha

Four boys were sitting in one compartment of the Hogwarts Express. One boy had messy black hair and was wearing glasses, while he was staring out of the window with a dreamy look on his face. There was a boy with mouse-brown hair, who was reading a book with a frown above his eyes. A little, fat boy sat next to the one reading a book, seeming honoured to be with this company.
And then there was the last boy. He was clearly the most handsome of them all: his long, black hair was swaying careless along his face, his skin was perfectly smooth.
"James, I'm bored," the handsome boy sighed. The one with the glasses looked up and grinned.
"Maybe you should read a book, Sirius," he said jokingly. "Our dear Remus doesn't seem bored in the slightest."
Sirius made a face and laughed. He stood up and grabbed the book out of Remus' hands. He looked at it, but apparently, the book hadn't succeeded to catch his attention; he threw the book through the compartment, to wat

"We're almost there, I think," Remus said softly, breaking James' astonished silence; he still hadn't recovered from what he had just heard and didn't say a word, he couldn't care less. Sirius, though, looked up, stared out of the window and shrugged.
"Time to become a wizard, then," he said, grinning widely. He checked the hallway of the train and smiled when he saw a few girls coming his way. While still standing in the door opening, he took off his shirt as the girls passed him. His browned, muscled chest came clearly into view and he was well aware of it; he turned the front of his body towards the girls and winked at them, his body almost screaming at them to touch it, if they dared.
One girl simply giggled; the second girl's eyes almost popped out of her head. The third one was braver, though, and said: "Nice!"
"You think so?" Sirius asked casually, as though he wasn't completely aware of what he looked like. He looked at the girl, checking her from he

Prologue: The Patronus Message
The thing about growing up with Fred and George is that you sort of start thinking anythings possible if youve got enough nerve.
Im tired of cleaning.
Tired or not, youre helping, Fred. Now get moving.
But thats no fun, Lily, the young man sighed.
If you dont, Ill sic James on you. The tall redhead jumped up and began sweeping broken glass from the dining room floor. The woman named Lily smiled, emerald eyes bright, and carried a few fallen plants out into the garden. Another young man with long black hair and dark eyes grinned from his place by the fire, where he was replacing the fallen photos on the mantle.
You still argue with her, even after helping to make the mess? Incredible.
You must remember who youre talking to, Sirius, said a scruffy-looking blond man from the table, where
Becoming"AhhOOOOOoooOOO!!!" The howl sounded behind the boy again. Not daring to look to see how far behind the creature pursuing him was, the child pressed on. His breath came in painful gasps as his exhausted legs shook with the effort to keep up his desperate pace.More Like This
If someone that morning had told the lad he would be running for his life before the night was over, he most likely would have laughed. Though the child was not yet a month past his eighth birthday, he wasn't ignorant to the dangers that were to be found in this Romanian village his family had gone to on a working holiday. After all, he was Remus John Lupin, only child of John and Sera Lupin. He was no simpleton, nor had his parents shielded him from details of their careers in the Fortean Department of the Ministry of Magic. Remus had been taught never to be out past moonrise, nor to wander off.
However, he was still a child, and one who was interested in creatures at that. When the boy had seen a bowtruckle wh

7th year Lily Evans stopped as her hand hit something hard under her bed. Wincing, she pulled back and sighed, reflecting for a moment as she nursed her bruise. She and the other 7th years were packing up; they were leaving, at last. Although Lily had wished for this day for so long, she now didn't want to leave. This castle held so many memories for her! No time for that now...
Sticking her hand back under the bed with a purpose, she grasped the object and pulled it out carefully. She brushed it off, scattering spiders, and nearly laughed out loud when she saw what it was. It was a diary. Oh, not just anyone's…it was the Marauders'. She tossed a sock at her boyfriend, James Potter, who was across the room.
"Lily!" he protested, throwing it back at her.
"Don't throw things at me!" she told him with a grin, trying to sound indignant, "I'm the one helping you clean up your messy room.

A hand came and rested on his shoulder, rubbing it softly. The scent of a forest just before a rainstorm met his nostrils, and Remus allowed himself a content sigh. It was Sirius again. He was always tagging behind him, worried. Any where Remus went, Sirius would eventually follow, careful to make sure that he was okay and safe. He always was, Moony tried to insist, but there really was no arguing with Sirius Black; he had inherited his family's ability to charm anyone into letting him do nearly anything.
"It's just a book..." Remus said, his voice muffled softly by a piece of Honeydukes chocolate. He swallowed the milky treat and lifted his head, his sandy hair brushing against Sirius' chin. "...About the moon..."
Sirius' head dropped onto Remus' shoulder, nuzzling against him tenderly. "I can see that, mate. You know my eyes go straight to the pictures." The pale hand left his other shoulder and pointed at an inked diagram of the moon's patterns
What A Weasley-Ch. 5: Finding the Marauder's MapI was plagued my nightmares of that day in Diagon Alley again. I spent the whole night tossing and turning. Even though I was excited about going to Hogwarts, I wished I was home, safe in my bed. At least then father would be alive, I thought, but quickly pushed the thought away. That wouldn't help anything. I finally fell back to sleep as the horizon set fire with the sunrise, tears still falling down my face.More Like This
The next day was torturous. I fell asleep in Transfiguration, but McGonagall was understanding. She quietly woke me up, and set me to work. My classes were okay, but none of them stuck out to be amazing yet. The twins sat near to me in all my classes. They were as annoying as ever, but I was secretly glad I was by someone I knew.
The first month and a half passed by in a blur. I did well in all my classes, and the homework pretty much consumed all my time. One night, when writing a potions essay, Fred and George came bursting into the common room. They sat across from me

DISCLAIMER: Kay, this is the official disclaimer the one with all the details. After this theyll be short and (hopefully) amusing. Here goes: I do not own Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling does. Any OCs are very small characters (for now) and although some characters may have unfamiliar last names its because they get their married names later
Always and Forever
Lily Evans had just left the Gryffindor common room on her last day of sixth year at Hogwarts. She was sad to be leaving the place that was more of a home to her than her actual home outside of school. Lily walked dejectedly down the corridor, not anticipating someone approaching.
Lily, she heard a voice call behind her. She knew that voicethe voice of James Potter.
