It was probably my curiosity which would be the ruin of me. It was my curiosity which led to me falling into the Potter's back yard. My curiosity that led me to experiment with my ‘ability’ and it was curiosity that led me to ignore the one piece of advice my mother ever gave me - never look into your future.

Rating: Mature   Chapters: 62   Reviews: 3860





As Sirius led me around the room, I took a deep breath. "So, was it a bet or a dare?"
"What do you mean?" he asked. When his eyes drifted to James I grinned.
"Don't play dumb. You'd never ask me to dance in a million years. Besides, Potter just gave you the thumbs up."
He groaned. "Are we really that obvious? OK yes, it was a dare."

 Banner Fayeswonderland @TDA



In my memory, the year of the autobiography coincided exactly with James Potter's mid life crisis. 

"You seemed to have mixed up the word excitement with excrement here.”
“Easily done.” 
“No one’s actually going to publish this, are they?”
"Probably, excrement is likely more appropriate though."


Sort of sequel to SSTTAP.

I’m going to die.

And not even in the ‘can’t believe current situation with Sirius Black’ or ‘blackmail coming from all sides’ or ‘evil step mother’ this-is-so-bad-going-to-die sense.

I mean an actual physical, literal ending sort of death.

James Potter and Amelie Harris had never had the most conventional of relationships.
