Lily and James are in their final year at Hogwarts. James is the same love-struck boy determined never to learn his lesson. Lily is the temper-ridden ball of confidence that hates everything remotely Potter (including that ridiculous broomstick). Sirius, however, is just Sirius. One last year to change their lives.

“Evans I know you think I'm good looking and all, but seriously, no pun intended, you can't go around fainting all the time. What are the girls going to think? I have to keep my options open, and falling for me, and I mean literally falling for me, isn't going to do favours for either of us. Besides, I couldn't have Jamse bashing me for your indiscrete, but may I add, natural actions.
|2||Head of Houses
Now that she was closer to him, she noticed the discreet changes that had taken place over the summer: he seemed to hold himself more upright, confident as usual, but with a new sense of responsibility; with his elevated height, his jaw seemed more pronounced and less boyish; he still, however, had the old traits – stuffing his hands in his pockets and occasionally ruffling his hair to keep it looking ‘wind-blown’.
|3||Smooth Sailing or Rough Seas?
“Whatever guys, when I see you tomorrow at breakfast I will have a big smile on my face because I would have had a wonderful night with Lily and I will be a step closer at winning my fair maiden over.”
|4||An Unwanted Arrival
“How about we make this a little more interesting?” Aria smiled wryly.
|5||It's Potter to you!
“Those colours really work for you Black. Perhaps we could make it permanent fixture?”
|6||To court, or not to court?
“So out of the blue you gain some freakish liking for me and decide that you just NEED to come and see me?”
|7||Marauders are Men!
Turing into the corridor of the head rooms, Lily stopped walking abruptly and faced James.
|8||An Unexpected Gesture
“Are you,” He stopped and put his hand down to his pocket, searching furiously until he pulled out a sheet of paper and held it up to his face, “Lily Evans?”
|9||A Case of Denial
"Do you Lily? Do you really know what you are getting yourself into?”
“I was looking for a last chance.”
“No you didn’t. I imagine James doesn’t want to do it because he doesn’t want to get into trouble from Lily and cause another argument between them and you don’t want to do it because secretly you’re just as terrified of Lily as James is.”
Sirius moved away before she could touch his arm and looked towards Lily’s room across the common room, and then back to her. His eyes look pained as if he didn’t know what to say.
|13||Mooning the Marauders
As he came down the last flight of stairs to the pre-arranged meeting place, he saw her sitting down with her back up against the wall and a book placed up against her knees. Her long red hair was, unusually, let down tonight and it kept falling in her eyes as she lowered her head to read.
