Chloe is content with her quiet life amid her Muggle parents' fear of magic.  But after suffering a brutal attack at the hands of would-be Death Eaters, Chloe is thrust into a world both exhilarating and terrifying.  Marlene McKinnon and her friends, the Marauders, are rule-breakers.  They leave laughter and chaos in their wake.  They are everything that Chloe thought she never wanted, least of all Sirius Black: cavalier, reckless and so strangely alluring.  As the years pass, Chloe's infatuation with Marlene and Sirius forces her to question where her loyalties lie in the shadow of a rising war.

Evans was certain about everything, and convinced she had the right of it all, especially when it came to James Potter.

James was equally as certain that nothing in life was ironclad or inevitable as she seemed to make it out to be, except perhaps, for the pair of them.


An eternity, at times, can fit into a handful of years, a hundred kisses, a cheeky phrase.

"Alright, Evans?"

“How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?” Marlene says, but there’s something odd in the way she’s standing, holding herself a little too still to be truly relaxed.

“That depends,” Sirius says, putting his hands in his pockets and leaning against the wall. “What’s the catch?”

On one hand, he does quite like France. On the other, he can’t imagine he’s the first choice Marlene would have for a holiday companion.

It'll Be Alright by CheekyTorah-Lex



 

 

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down
I'm gonna send a flood, gonna drown them out
I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

 

-This is me
