I know the beginning’s confusing but it’s cause Lily’s having random lines said to her in her dream but it changes to like scenes after. If That Helps? x

Dreaming Of You

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I'd stay up and think of you
And I'd wish on a star
That somewhere you are thinking of me too

“All right Evans?” James said in a deeper more mature voice.

“Leave him alone”

“- It’s more the fact he exists -”
Lily Evans rolled over in her sleep with a quiet moan as her past memories flashed around her head as she dreamt.

“I don’t need help from filthy little Mudbloods like her!”

“Apologise to Evans!” James roared at Snape.
Lily’s eyes were wet even though her mind was still asleep she couldn’t stop the flow of tears falling as she witnessed for the second time in her life the person she thought was her best-friend insult her. Then the scene changed.

“I only came out because Mary told me you were threatening to sleep here”

“No - listen, I didn’t mean-”

“-to call me Mudblood? But you call everyone of my birth Mudblood Severus. Why should I be any different?”

Cuz I'm dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Then here in my room,
Dreaming about you and me

Leaving Severus Snape out in the Corridor, Lily wiped away her tears as she entered what she thought to be an empty common room. Lily let herself fall into the armchair in front of the fire.

“Evans?” A small voice asked cautiously from the sofa next to her, causing her to jump.

“What do you want Potter?” Lily replied in what she had planned to be a fierce voice but instead ended up being spoke far too softly for her liking.

“Evans, are you okay?”

Lily looked up at him shocked. James Potter actually sounded concerned. “Someone I thought to be my best friend called me a Mudblood, Yeah Im fabulous” she told him with sarcasm.

James flinched as she said Mudblood. “Look, Im sorry that was all my fault if I hadn’t been teasing him you would never have had to step in, It’s all my fault”

“You never made him say that word though did you! For once Potter I don’t blame you”

“Well that’s new” James said jokingly, but Lily sent him a look that made him hang his head.

After a few minutes of silence Lily spoke up “Why do you ask me out all the time?”

James looked up shocked. “What?”

“You heard, Why do you ask me out all the time?” Lily repeated.

“Lily I know you don’t want to be near me right now but come here” James said patting the cushion of the sofa indicating for her to sit next to him.

Surprising him she did as told and sat looking at him, waiting. What he did next made her sit back a little.

James knelt before her so his head was level with hers, and he let one hand move her cheek so her face was directly in front of his. “I never wanted to hurt you, you know?”

“But you did you always hurt me” Lily said sadly.

“I don’t mean to though I really don’t” James whispered back,

“You don’t understand you hurt me every time you ask me out” Lily said a tear leaking from her eye. When James stayed quiet she continued. “When we were in third year I liked you. I mean I really liked you. But then I told Severus and he kept putting a bad spin on everything you did. You were a bully to him but I didn’t see it. But then you asked me out. In front of the whole school after embarrassing him. And then I said no to you. Your first no ever I think. And for the last two years you kept asking. It hurt because I liked you so badly and you took this so like a joke. Then we started arguing. It gives me this buzz you know to yell at you. Cause I can see you hurt. Sure I feel guilty after but it makes me think you hurt me I hurt you back. And tonight I lost my oldest friend, my best friend. All because I stepped in between you two fighting!” he wiped her tears away.

“I’m sorry” he leant his forehead against his. He could feel her breath mingling with his.

“So am I” she admitted.

“It was never a joke you know” James told her. “Friends?”

“Friends” Lily agreed she lifted her head from his and let her lips press lightly against his.
Lily tossed over once more her bed sheets flying off her.

Wonder if you even see me 
And I wonder if you know I'm there
If you looked in my eyes 
Would you see what's inside?
Would you even care?

“Evans” James said.

“Potter” Lily replied evenly.

Lily groaned in her sleep her hair fanning out behind her. The things she remembered swimming around in her head never letting her forget.

A sixth year Lily Evans sat in a compartment alone. She usually sat with Severus on the way to Hogwarts.

“Lily?” James Potter poked his head around the door.

“Mmm?” she said not looking up from her book.

“Come sit with us?”

“No I’m okay here James”

“It wasn’t a question” James said picking up her trunk and then holding out his hand for her to take.

Lily closed her book not even marking the page and vanished it. She then looked up at a smiling James. She hovered for a second torn between thanking him and yelling at him. His smile widened and a split second later she placed her pale hand in his warm one.
I just wanna hold you close
But so far, all I have are dreams of you
So, I wait for the day and the courage to say
How much I love you(Yes, I do)

The water was warm and Lily trailed her pale fingers through the water watching the ripples from where she marked. Her right foot was in the water as her left one was pulled up at her side as she leaned her head on it. The lake was quiet and calming. She closed her eyes letting herself unwind. She heard the faint footsteps approaching. And opened one eye to see James sit next to her. She closed them again. They sat in silence. No need to speak the comforting silence enough to last them a while. The sleeping Lily smiled as the moon continued to cast a beam of light towards her bed.

“Snape go away” James said he was neither angry or upset just worried.

“Don’t tell me what to do Potter” Snape spat.

“Severus please” Lily pleaded her voice low and sounding exhausted, “Just go”

The boy left his head low, he had lost.

Lily dropped to the floor as a tear trickled down her cheek. “Thank you”

“There’s no reason to thank me” James said crouching in front of her.

“You’re here aren’t you?” she said and for the second time in her life she pressed her cool lips against his slightly rough ones. And like the first time the kiss was still innocent.

I'll be dreaming of you tonight
Till tomorrow, I'll be holding you tight
And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be

“Now this is advanced magic and we’re only trying it as a treat before your newt in a few months.” said Professor Longden (the defence against dark arts professor)

“Advance magic is a treat?” James questioned Longden from where he was stood in the circle around the room. The desks were somehow suspended invisibly about three feet above their heads to make room for the lesson. 
Then here in my room,
Dreaming about you and me

“Mr Potter seen as you are so vocal about this you can go first.” The Professor smiled.

“Right what am I doing?” James asked rolling up his sleeves.

“The Patronus charm. Anyone heard of it?” The professor asked the class at large. Lily raised her arm.

“Miss Evans?”

“The Patronus charm appears in the shape of an animal. I only know that it can be used against dementors professors.”

“Correct, five points to Gryffindor. You can also use the Patronus Charm to communicate with one another and many people do. So Mr Potter I want you to think of something that makes you incredibly happy. Got it? Good. Now think the words Expecto Patronum.”

“And then I do it same time right?” James asked his eyes closed in concentration.

“Why don’t you try it?”

“Expecto Patronum” James said his eyes now open. A silver wisp lingered in the air before fading into nothingness. James frowned.

“Better than I thought you would be try again but you need a happier memory. Watch” Professor Longden waved his wand and spoke the words “Expecto Patronum” a silver eagle flew out of his wand flew around the room and landed on his shoulder, Longden waved his wand once more and the eagle disappeared. “James?”

James grinned “Expecto Patronum” For a second nothing happened then out of his wand emerged a stag. The bad news James dropped his wand in shock. “Jesus!”

The class erupted in laughs, Sirius being the loudest.

Lily couldn’t stop the grin spreading over her face as James looked sheepish. She smiled at him saying “Try again James”

He winked at her and she blushed “Expecto Patronum” This time he didn’t drop his wand. The stag trotted around the room proudly. James pointed his wand slightly left and the stag pranced around Lily in a circle making her giggle as she patted it’s head.

“Okay. So James can do it. I want all of you to try now. Every Patronus is equal to twenty house points. So for James‘ twenty to Gryffindor. Of you go.” The professor looked around.

Lily turned to Alice. “You first”

Alice smiled looked across the room at her boyfriend Frank then easily said “Expecto Patronum” A silver rabbit hopped out of her wand and next thing Frank had been tripped over by it. Lily & Alice laughed before Alice went to help him up.

“Expecto Patronum” Lily said. Nothing. ”Damn”

She felt someone behind her so span around. James stood there his stag was off gallivanting with a dog and a wolf. “Try again” he said smiling taking her hand and twirling her so she was facing empty space. “Think happy thoughts” James whispered into her ear. But all she could think about was James stood next to her, his warm breath on her ear and neck.

“Expecto Patronum” she whispered breathlessly, her eyes fluttering to a close. Next thing she knew were James’ arms squeezing her and him kissing her neck before spinning her. “You did it!”

Lily opened her eyes in shock. Sure enough before her a doe was laid on the floor. The silver iris of the deer met Lily’s emerald green stare and the doe bowed its head.
Ahhh...I can't stop dreaming of you
Ahhh...I can't stop dreaming

Her red hair was stuck to her face. Her skirt wet as well as her shirt that was slowly turning see through.

“Lily? Alice sent me looking for you. Why are you out here?” she knew it was James even with her eyes closed.

When she didn’t reply he touched her arm “Merlin Lily you’re freezing! Why don’t we go inside”

Lily still stood there. “It’s the rain.” she said in a voice that told James she was pretty much off in her own world. “I love the rain. It makes me think. It helps me think.”

“What are you thinking about”

“A bit of everything. Anger. Jealously. Passion. Lust. Love. And others.”

“Others?” James asked looking at her face so peaceful.

“I’m thinking of you James” she told him still in that same voice. “What category you fall under. And if I‘ll see you after graduation”

“You know you will” James said “You’d have to kill me before I left you alone”

“Good, James. Because you see…” she was going to continue when her eyes flew open.


“I’m cold. You know where the kitchens are right? I feel like a hot chocolate.” her normal voice was back.

Late at night when all the world is sleeping
I'd stay up and think of you
And I still can't believe that you came up to me
And said, "I love you; I love you too"

The sleeping Lily fell of her bad causing Lily’s eyes snapped open. She loved him. Lily Evans was in love with James Potter. Who’d have thought it? Certainly not her.

She looked at the clock that was sat on her bed stand. It read 1.43am. She knew she wouldn’t sleep until she’d seen him.

Being careful not to wake the girls in her dorm she tip toed across the room and down the girls staircase. The common room was empty and the fire dying in its place. Giving the room a low glow. Shivering slightly Lily thought it would probably be a lot smarter if she had put more clothes on, currently she was wearing an oversized top that came to mid-thigh and a pair of boxers.

Being as quiet and as quick as she could Lily climbed the boys staircase and made her way to the seventh year dorms. She took a peak in and had to put her hand over her mouth. Sirius was on the bed closest and was wearing nothing but his boxers he obviously didn’t mind as his curtains weren’t closed. Next to him was Remus. Though the curtains were closed he seemed to be the only one who would read before bed and judging by the book about to fall of the bed it was him.

The other three curtains were closed. She tried the bed opposite but stopped on seeing the picture on the bed stand. Frank Longbottom & Alice Prewitt smiled up at him from behind the glass. Confused she looked to the bed at the top of the room between Remus’s and Franks and then to the bed next to Frank’s opposite Sirius’.

“It’s that one.” the voice startled her and she span around. Sirius had woke up and he nodded to the bed opposite from him. He was currently in the process of pulling his curtains closed with bleary eyes. “Morning Evans Now im going back to bed but unless you want Peter I would go to that bed” he pointed again.

“Thanks” Lily whispered back he smiled at her before falling back. Barely a minute later she heard his snores start up again.

Taking a deep breath she walked towards the bed Sirius had pointed her to. She went around to the side nearest the wall (furthest from Frank his snoring was loud!) and pulled back the curtain quietly.

Lily smiled at the sight of James still asleep his glasses still on his face. She crouched down wincing as her knee’s clicked. She pushed James’s raven hair off of his face before pulling her hand away as he stirred. 

Now I'm dreaming with you tonight
Till tomorrow, and for all of my life

“Lily?” he whispered shocked.

“Hey James” She muttered back.

He sat up “You okay?”

“Yeah just woke up from a dream” Lily smiled.

“A good one?” he asked.

“The best” Lily’s smile widened.

“You’re cold” James said looking at the goose pimples on her arms.

“I’ll live” Lily said quietly.

“You know I’m going to hate it when I wake up.” James muttered laying back down.

“Huh?” Lily asked confused.

“When you’re not here when I wake up”

Lily laughed lightly “James you’re not dreaming I’m really here”

James’s eyes opened. “Really?”

“Really, Really.” Lily giggled “See” she laced his hand with hers.

“Well now I feel like a fool” James admitted.

“Don’t” Lily said. She shivered from the cold despite saying She’d live.

“Get In” James chuckled.

Lily raised her eyebrows.

“I’ll be good!” James said pretending to draw a halo around his head.

She giggled laying next to him.

“Merlin you are freezing!” James said.

Lily giggled as he winced as she purposely placed her freezing hands on his bare chest.

“You’re one mean girl Lily Evans”

“Thank You” she smiled.

He chuckled again rolling onto his side so they were facing each other. “You staying all night?”

“Do you want me to?” she turned the question on him.

“Yes I do” James smiled brushing a piece of hair out of her eyes.

“Good cause I’m not going anywhere” she muttered leaning in.

James didn’t need any more encouragement he pressed his lips against hers and then pulled back. He did it again. And then a third time this time she opened her mouth to him and he slipped his tongue in barely a second later she started laughing. They pulled apart.

“Did you just laugh?” James asked eyebrows raised.

“Sorry I couldn’t help it” she giggled. She took a breath before kissing him again. This time she was the one to pull away.

“Did you just laugh?” she giggled.

“You’ve set me off now!” James chuckled.

“We’re idiots you know?” Lily told him rolling over so she was snuggled into him.

“I know” James smiled kissing her forehead before they fell asleep.

And there's nowhere in the world I'd rather be
Then here in my room,
Dreaming with you endlessly...
