A/N: This story pops in through mostly Lily’s point of view but it will be noted when I want it to be in James’ or another characters point of view.
But first we need background on who our characters are.
Lily Evans is a muggle born, book smart, and wants to be a healer when she graduates. She is 17 almost 18. Her birthday is February 14th, yes Valentine’s Day.
James Potter wants to be an Auror. His birthday is Halloween, one of the 2 great days of pranking October 31st. He is in love with Lily. He is very romantic. He also grows up over the summer, which is a large shock to Lily.
Sirius Black also wants to be an Auror. His birthday is April 1st, April fool’s day the perfect prank day. He is James’ best friend, who helps James get into all of his trouble. He and his future girlfriend, Monique, have very similar personalities.
Remus Lupin wants to be a teacher or an Auror, but fears that he won’t get a job because of his condition. His birthday is Christmas because he is giving, sweet, and a gift to have as a friend.
We don’t know that much about Tina’s future boyfriend, Tony Johnson. He is not really one of the main characters, but his birthday is November 27th. This that date will be thanksgiving because he is very giving. He also is a Gryffindor.
And then Peter you see, well no one cares about him. His birthday is June 1st so he is the baby of the gang… and yea I hate him so I don’t include him much.
Every Character’s birthday is a holiday that reflects who they are.
You learn more about Lily’s friends later on.
Chapter 1: I love her but she can’t see it
Hello, my name is James Potter and I live in Godric’s Hollow with my parents and my best friend Sirius Black who recently moved in with us. However even with Sirius here, this summer has been really dull because there is only one thing on my mind: To get Lily Evans to finally notice me not for “The annoying prat” or simply “The Head Marauder”, but for the guy she could possibly spend the rest of her life with. I want to show her that I am much more mature now and am no longer obsessed with myself. I am no longer a prat cursing everything and everyone. I am no longer doing things that Lily feels are distasteful. Of course I will remain a Marauder forever because I could never give up my true roots. I could never, in my entire life, give up being a prankster. I want Lily to realize these things about me. I am now going into my 7th year at Hogwarts, and I am determined to complete my Hogwarts checklist by finally getting a date with Lily who is the only girl for me. All this thinking gives me a headache, and its midnight anyway so good night…
There is a long hallway and at the end I see none other than my love, Lily Evans, in the most beautiful dress I have ever seen (and it was slightly revealing, which couldn’t be better for a guy like me). She is on a stand that has a huge sign above her that says “Kisses for Free”. Underneath that sign on another sign which says, “I don’t turn away anyone”. Of course I want a turn to really see if she means “‘I don’t turn away anyone’”. I run as quickly as I possibly can towards her. As I run, the hallway seems to get longer and longer, but I finally get to her. Then I say, “Hey Lily can I have that kiss now?”
Lily says, “Sure,” and we lean in to kiss
I think my dream is about to come true and all of a sudden she pulls away, and in a muffled voice says, “Prongs oh Prongs.” Then louder in a man’s voice that sounds oddly familiar, “Prongs oh Prongs.”
I say, “Lily what’s wrong? You said you don’t turn anyone away.”
Her voice comes back and says, “Only in your dreams James Potter. Good Bye,” she waves.
I yell “No I didn’t get my kiss yet!!!! Don’t go!!!” Then I hear a certain friend of mine laughing his head off next to me and all I do is pray “Please let me not have said that out loud”.
“Hey Prongs,” yelled Sirius. “Wake up you old obsessive man you. Were you dreaming about a certain Red Head may I ask?” Sirius replied with a huge evil smile.
“No I wasn’t,” I said as a slight blush crawled across my face.
“Liar,” Sirius said while laughing extremely loud and annoyingly I may add. “Anyway lover boy, it’s a Friday, and we are not doing anything tonight. We have to go find something to do.” Seeing how sleepy his best friend looked he asked, “Wanna go to a club? Wanna go prank that Melvin kid down the street? Wanna do anything?”
“Padfoot, I just want her to like me. I know I talk about this all of the time, but how can I get her to realize how much I really love her?”
“Will you please get over Lily, she doesn’t like you Prongs. I’m sorry, I really am, but there are a ton of girls at Hogwarts, and you can have any one of them. The rest of them throw themselves at you and you go for the one girl who doesn’t. Just go for one of them.”
“Yes, but none of those other girls hold a candle to my Lily.”
“Prongs get this through your extremely thick Potter head. SHE DOES NOT LIKE YOU; SHE THINKS YOU ARE A PRAT. PLEASE GET OVER HER BEFORE I CURSE SOME SENSE INTO YOU!!! WE CAN DO MAGIC OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL NOW, AND I’M NOT AFRAID TO PRETEND YOU ARE SNIVELUS AND CURSE YOU INTO THE OBLIVION!!!” Sirius yelled at the top of his lungs.
“I cannot help it; I just wish she would like me back. I need her with me or there will be no point for me to exist. She is the only thing worth living for,” James said with pleading eyes.
Sirius replied, “James I know how you feel, but please let’s have fun. I will help you forget about her.”
“Ok, you can try,” James replied.
