In which Lily confesses she fancies James to his face and the rest of her N.E.W.T level Potions class.
-This story features a darker version of the Marauders era-
Severus has called her a Mudblood not three days ago and now he's hexed James with a new curse of his. But what was unexpected was her reaction to this. Was she turning dark as well? Or was this her role in the war brewing outside of the safety of Hogwarts?
With the initiation of the Death Eaters, the threat of war has become real. As a potential Death Eater, a Mudblood and two Purebloods clash within the walls of Hogwarts, the future seem pretty cut out for them.
But where would there petty childhood rivalries land them?
The word hung in the air for a long moment. No one who heard it knew the full gravity of it. They knew what it meant, sure. But why was it said? What happened next? ...
Chapter 8 is up!

Well, I've sort of erased Voldemort from history and trapped myself in a parallel universe, and things are pretty different now. For example, I don't actually exist. Brilliant.

Chloe never asked to become a member of the First Order. She didn't ask to join in the fight against Voldemort; to betray her mother's paralyzing fear of the magical world. She didn't ask to watch her friends die by their own hands. It only took standing in the wrong place, at the wrong time, to change history—and history still needed a martyr.

If I'd known a certain messy-haired idiot was going to be in the cottage next to my family's when we went away for winter holidays, I would've stayed at Hogwarts.
Meet Lark Jordan: She’s the snarky Hogwarts Quidditch commentator, with a dad that narrates everything, a jealous twin sister, two best mates losing all sorts of virginities, a love for cheesecake, and Freddie Weasley. The new flirty commentator that she has to work with. Oh, bugger.

Lily Evans is locked in a broom cupboard and is making lists of reasons.
Reasons why broom closets suck; why I now hate my friends; why I hate James Potter himself; revised reasons why I hate James Potter himself; why Lily Evans is currently confused; why Lily Evans likes James Potter; and why Lily Evans is ridiculously happy.

Destiny is the result of people's choices. And any single choice can change it completely.
In this AU the Marauders are still alive and free (more or less...), Neville Longbottom is the guy with the scar, and Harry... Well, just read and find out!

Chapter 20 is in the queue! Chapter Twenty Excerpt:
“Well, you didn’t seem all that bothered to me,” sniped Sirius. “You rallied pretty well. Tell me,” he demanded of her, “is it true that Matt gurgles like a clogged up drain when he laughs?”
“Oh, for Merlin’s sake!” exclaimed Kirsty in exasperation as Sirius allowed himself a small grin of satisfaction. “You’re so immature! If you didn’t like me talking with Matt then you only have yourself to blame.”
“I can’t imagine he had anything interesting to talk about,” said Sirius, continuing with his tirade of obscene insults.

Before the prejudice, before the death, before the hate. Before it all, there were two girls from two different worlds shopping for their birthday present, giving each other the greatest, most valuable gift each of them will ever give and receive. Friendship.
I stay hidden, behind a suit of armour here, a plinth there. She doesn’t know I follow her. Doesn’t know how much I want to return to those days when she called herself my friend, before I completely screwed everything up. Before I called her that word.
