In The Day of The Marauders

(0) Lily Evans, age 15, walked into her dormitory where two other girls were talking. She had just gotten back from breakfast and had to tell someone about how annoyingly immature the Marauders, James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, were being. "Lils, you look beat," said Jenny Martin, one of Lily's best friends. "What's wrong, Lily?" Donna Walters asked Lily. "Let me guess," Jenny said. "Marauders?" Lily nodded in response. (Meissa Black, Age 13 to 18, 9/25/2002 3:08:21 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(1) They almost turned my hair purple!',Lily exclaimed.'Lily...',Jenny said.'I think James likes you'.'Potter!',Lily screamed.'Do not mention his stupid name!Ever!I hate him!I hate him!He is just a four eyes loser!''Not to mention a handsome,head boy,prefect,captain and seeker for qiudditch',Donna said.Lily got up and left in a huff.'Ditto',Jenny said. (James Potter, Age 13 to 18, 9/25/2002 3:09:53 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(2) Lily was walking to the common room and she felt someone following her.She turned around and saw no one,so she continued to walk.She got to the common room and sat by the fire.She saw a water bottle or something like that and since she was thirsty she drank it. (Winnie, Age 13 to 18, 9/25/2002 3:10:22 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(3) 'Hey!',Lily yelled once she read the label.No more than an hour,she would fall in love with Snape.Only for a day.Just then she heard a snickering from the background.James,Remus,Sirius, Peterwere laughing their heads off.'You did this!',Lily barked.She was a bout to beat them up before Sirius told her that it was fake and that they had just wrote that label to make her scared. (Winnie, Age 13 to 18, 9/25/2002 3:10:53 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(4) Lilly went and complained to Jenny about them."They are sooooooooooooo anoying!"."I know but we can't do anything about it can we?""or can we?" said Lilly with a big grin on her face."What are you going to do"said Jenny."give them a taste of there own medison"replied Lilly. (Kate, Age 13 to 18, 10/1/2002 3:14:17 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(5) Lily,Jenny,and Donna were thinking about the plan.They finally figured out when.While they were taking a break,Lily decided to go to the quidditch pitch to play on her broom.Jenny and Donna were too tired so they took a nap.Just as Lily was flying.... (Winnie, Age 13 to 18, 10/7/2002 8:53:04 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(6) Sirius came and accompenied by Snape. "Hi Lily" said Snape. "here's someone who's drank the love potion. Lily landed hard on the ground and started running but ran into James."Oh NO!" screamed Lily and then Snape gave her a big kiss on the lips but then she found out who really kissed her... James!!!!!!"oh noooooooooooo!" She broke free of his grip and went to her common room and then... (Comentator, Age 8 to 12, 10/19/2002 2:09:53 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(7) Cried.Jenny and Donna came by her to comfort her.'Lily!!',Jenny asked astounded.'What's wrong?'.Lily looked up and was crying in happiness.She then told them the whole story.'James kissed you!',Donna said surprised.Just then James,Sirius,Remus and Peter burst into the room.'Lily!Are you okay?',Remus asked.Lily's green eyes were sparkling now.'Of course',she said,wiping tears off her eyes.Lily then gave a sly smile.The Marauders caught her eye and considered what she was thinking.'You did that prank on us!',Sirius yelled.'Huh if you think that Snape kissing you was going to make us jealous,think again',Peter squeaked.Sirius,James and Remus gave him evil glares.'Just kidding Lily,you are our friend of course',he retorted.Then James said,'Lily,how about a wizard chess match'.'Winner gets to kiss sirius and Remus on the cheek'.Lily gave him a cold glare and they all started to laugh. (Winnie, Age 13 to 18, 10/20/2002 3:28:49 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(8) Paragraphs 6 and 7 are upside down...continue the story starting with 7. (Winnie, Age 13 to 18, 10/20/2002 3:31:12 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(9) Lily played wizards chess with them and she won. So that meant that James had to kiss Sirius and Remus on the cheek. James went up to him and yelled "Yuck!" right after the kiss. Lily was laughing. (Erica, Age 13 to 18, 10/26/2002 8:37:33 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(10) all this continued for three days without interuption.People were content with it becouse thats how things usually were.But things were soon to change, and not for the better.You see people at Hogwarts were soon to see a kind of horror you only see in nightmares,and very oddly even in dreams.Some believe it all started one day late in the fall when two new students came to the school.But that is not completly true.It begins with a seies of events that get worse as they go along.In later years the people of Hogwarts would tell you, with ligering fear,that had they known what was in store for them,they would have fallen to their knees and prayed to all the gods they knew of to have mercy on them.They would have gien anything not to have gone through the horror of it...even sacrifice their own... (Brigid & Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 2/20/2003 3:06:03 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(11) Depressing...arn't I? (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 2/21/2003 7:06:55 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(12) (Nods).Well,anyway as Lily picked up her muggle book to the Gryffindor common room,she felt a hand on her shoulder,it was Donna."Lily,are you alright?",she asked."You have'nt been eating in awhile",she added.Lily tried to manage a smile and replied,"Donna,i'm quite alright,y'know.I'm fine.Trust me."Donna looked at her as if she was looking right through her,she did'nt look convinced at all."Well,okay then,promise me you'll eat today at lunch?",Donna asked awkardly."Yes,i will.Promise",Lily replied.Later that day,she thought all about that old dream over and over again.Deep down,she was deeply in love with James,but that dream....it was quite weird.She had a little crush on him since last year and now since she was developing a bit more,it became love.It wasn't quite about his looks,it was something else inside of him...after taking a quick walk out in the halls,she saw a figure with unruly,black hair.It was James."James!",Lily said."What are you doing here?!".James smiled,"i thought Hogwarts was a free territory",he gave her a sly grin."Lily,what's wrong",he asked,seeing the look on Lily's face.Her bright face looked a bit miserable,but it quickly changed."Oh,it's nothing",Lily shrugged.She figured that she would tell him when the time was right,but decided againist it.She would know when.James looked up at Lily once more and laughed his head off."WHAT is so funny?!",Lily said in response."Nonthing,nothing at all",James spitted after laughing.He could'nt stop,his cheeks were giving way,but the he slowly relaxed."I got detention with Sirius from Professor Neptune".Lily shook her head and crossed her arms."So",James replied."Do you want to walk to the Great Hall?".Lily looked taken aback."S-sure,James".They walked on and did'nt notice someone at the stairs.It was the Marauders and Lily two best friends,Jenny and Donna,laughing silently and in awe.They had a plan that would just be the beggining of their 5th year. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/20/2003 9:00:27 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(13) I meant the rest of the Marauders. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/20/2003 9:03:13 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(14) well,with the three of us on this story shouldn't be to boring.(claps hands and smiles) (Brigid & Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 3/24/2003 6:42:35 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(15) I agree.I wrote a lot of stories or added a lot of them before. :) (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/27/2003 4:59:22 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(16) Padfoot looked sideways at Moony and wormtail.With a flick of his tail and a look he warned both of them to stay silent,as,low on his haunches, he crept slowly toward the forbidden forest. (Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 5/14/2003 6:53:56 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(17) James looked up suddenly from the homework he'd been working on for Proffesor Magonagol.His eyes narrowed as a thought struck him.He couldn't here Sirus or Remus arguing as was there custom in the evenings,nor could he here Peter making that annoying sniviling sound he usually made.He sat back in his chair and rubbed his temples.He thought for a minute and suddenly remembered a coment Sirus had made earlier in the day.He had said it casually at the time and james,fool that he was,had taken it as such.One of the comments u make but never really mean.Sirus had said that he had found a new "pet".And that since he had it he might as well use it for something useful.whatever that something is ,he now thought with a grin,will be anything but useful.The grin slid from his face and he smacked himself on the forehead with the palm of his hand.Of course they had left without him.Of all the...He stood up then sat back down.He had promised lily that he would stay and finish his work and no goofing around untill he did.he looked down at the papers scatered on the table.Well,they were partially done and that had to cont for something since usually they weren't done at all.And as for the goofing around he wasn't.He was going to find his freinds and watch them goof around.And see if they needed any help doing it.With a nod and a smile at his own unbreakable logic he got up and went in search of the rest of his Marauders. (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 7/5/2003 6:55:21 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(18) He went out into the Quidditch pitch. Throwing and catching the Snitch usually helped him think clearly. And there's always the chance that Lily Evens is watching, he reminded himself. He had liked her ever since third year and now, two years later, he still hadn't managed to impress her. After about fifteen minutes he spotted his friends under the tree that grew near the Great Lake. He was surprised to see his friends poring over a piece of parchment. "What's that?" he asked casually. "A map of the school." "What do you want with a map of Hogwarts? We've practically memorized it all. We probably know more than the caretaker." "James, do you really think that we'd be bothering with an ordinary map?" Sirius asked incredulously. "Well..." "Don't answer that." Sirius said quickly. "So..." "So what?" Sirius asked, bending over the map again."What's so special about the map." "James, this is a map of the entire grounds of Hogwarts. The entire grounds meaning..." Sirius began."The vanishing cabinets, the moving stairs, plus the secret passagways." Lupin ended. The three wait for this to sink in. "So? We've memorized all the passagways." "It doesn't just have passagways." Sirius said impaitiently, "It shows where certain people are at the moment.Like..." "A teacher"Peter squeaked. "And a ghost" Lupin added"Or a victim." Sirius said with a grin. "Like Snivellus." James said, finally getting the picture. But in his mind he added and Lily. (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 7/20/2003 9:12:56 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(19) "So what do we call it?" Peter squeaked. Remus laughed. "What would be more appropriate than 'The Marauder's Map'?" Sirius scratched his chin thoughtfully "Yeh, ok. Sounds classy." James grinned "Am I part of this" Sirius rolled his eyes "Derr, why d'you think Moony suggested the..." "Well, all in for 'The Marauder's Map'?" Remus cut in briskly. The others nodded. "Right, here goes.." Lupin pressed the tip of his wand to the parchment and wrote meticulously in large, neat, curly green lettering 'Messrs..' "Right, who wants o be first?" Sirius grinned. "You will, Moony- you started this whole map thing." "Suppose, but still..." "JUST RIGHT IT!" the other three yelled. "Ok, ok..all in good time.." 'Messrs Moony..."How about Peter next?" "Sounds ok.." Peter was flushed with excitement. "And lucky last, James." 'Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs...' lupin scrathced his chin with the end of his wand. '..Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief Makers..are proud to present The Marauder's Map' he tapped the parchment and it went blank instantly. "There..ok, let's test it." he tapped the parchment again. "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." Immediately, the curly green handwriting spread across the top of the map, bearing the words 'Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief Makers, are proud to present The Marauder's Map'. A thin network of lines and dots appeared, froming a map with dots labeled in miniscule handwriting of the location of individuals throughout the school, including themselves. "Yes!" James grinned. "Now we won't get in detention as often knowing where the teachers are, eh, Padfoot?" They all laughed. Remus stopped, staring at the map. "Hey, put it away, Sirius, Severus is coming.." they looked around wildly. By now, the quidditch pitch was dark and hard to see to the ends of the pitch. "Evanesco" Sirius muttered. The map vaished. "C'mon, let's go back in, I'm starving.." (Jiji, Age 8 to 12, 9/8/2003 4:31:07 AM, DayoftheMarauders)

(20) Later in the night, James tossed and turned in his sleep, in a desperate attempt to get some sleep. But no matter what he did, his mind drifted to Lily. He had a good mind to use that Marauders map to somehow win over Lily’s heart, but all his thoughts were clueless. So desperate he was, he even questioned his brilliance of cooking up schemes. He snapped out of his thoughts by a queer noise right in that very room. He looked around in his dormitory, all he could see was pitch darkness and the other boy’s soft snoring in the background. He chided his imagination untill there was some thuds, like footsteps. Loud and clear. Yet noone heard it except James. He ignored it, thinking him truly crazy. And after some more hours of thought in to Lily, he fell into gentle slumber. The next morning, James was awakened by Sirius’s troubled face. “The Marauder’s Map is gone!” he hissed. (Sanjita, Age 13 to 18, 9/23/2003 8:23:03 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(21) All the Marauders, traced back their footsteps, to find out whether they misplaced it. But their search was interrupted with their classes. Herbology was the first to. The students met in the grounds, where they were directed to greenhouse 1 by the teachers. As they walked James couldn't help but watch Lily walk. She was laughing about something with her friends. James had a strong suspicion they were laughing about him. Deciding to make a good impression on Lily, he walked towards her with his chest out and his head high. He made a deeper voice and talked in a bit of an accent. "Hello Lily".Lily stared at hime with immense bewilderment. "Do you have anything stuck in you throat,James? "Why ofcourse not" Just then his voice cracked and was replaced by a squeaky one quite simlair to peter pettigrew's voice. Lily's friends giggled, realizing what he was doing, but Lily stared in confusion. "Why are you forcing that weird expression on your face. For God's sake, more makeup and nails in your head which i'm sure is quite loose, would make you Frankeinstein!" Lily's friends gave out a tremendous fit of giggles. James could feel his cheeks going red, he had to change back into himself because he quite realized he made a fool of himself. "Do you have a crick in you neck, then why are you walking with your back so straight?" Lily questioned, her expression growing more confused by the second. "Depends if you massage it.." James replied with a sly grin. Lily gave a glare and walked away. She dropped her book, and when she did a peice of papercame out which she nervously tucked in her book again. James could've sweared that paper was the marauder's map. (Sanjita, Age 13 to 18, 9/23/2003 8:50:49 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(22) But it was'nt.Lily gave the paper to James: Dear James, I was wondering if you were missing a map I found it in your commom room.Iwas all so wondering if you loved me. Your love, Lily. James pulled his head up from the paper but Lilywas'nt there anymore. (A.H. Your mystery person ask Jaz for my name, Age 8 to 12, 10/7/2003 8:28:21 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(23) james couldn't find lily anywhere and then he just stood there in astonishment could this mean that lily evans loved him liked he loved her?? (ashley, Age 13 to 18, 10/13/2003 7:09:32 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(24) Then he went back 2 the common room.But 2 his way dair,Lily pulled him over and put a sleeping charm on him.When he woke up he was in the dungeons.Then he saw Lily."Wha-"But Lily cut him of by kissing him on the cheek.Then he flew up to the ceiling.He landed with a 'THUD'in the commom room.Remus Peter and Sirius just entered.(blushing)"Why are you guys blushing."James asked,blushing too.Finally Peter bursted out,"James & Lily,sit'n in a tree,k-i-s-s-i-n-g."They started to laugh exept 4 James.His face was as red as a tomato."QQUUIIIEEETT!!!!!!!!!!" shouted James and they stopped.Sudenly,Lily came in.James disaperated.After that James was sent to Azkaban 4 the rest of the school year.So.the next year they were 17 years old one day,James met Lily and told her that he liked....... (Aaron, Age 8 to 12, 10/14/2003 8:58:19 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(25) The next year on the train to hogwarts,Lily and the Mauraders were playing Exploding Snap.Lily likes the game snap.She plays it all the time with her friends Peter, James, and Remus. (AMY, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 9:51:17 AM) (4) "Severus! Come join us in a hearty game of Snap!" James bellowed in a loud, fake voice. Some muffled laughted ensued the invitation. Snape turned his head and shot a cold glance in Jame's direction. His eyes scanned the room for any signs of mischief, then gave Sirius and Remus sour looks. After they lingered a while on Lily, Snape's eyes flew back to James. "Found yourself a new girlfriend, Potter? I am amazed. Was Amelia so dull?" Severus sneered as he casually slicked some lint from his robes. Lily felt her face go red. Jumping from her seat, she slapped Snape across the face. - Loud Cheering - (Golden Snitch o~, Age 13 to 18, 5/15/2003 8:01:43 PM) (5) Snape reeled backwards. Still stunned and not quite believing, he hissed, "You slapped me?" Lily, who was quaking with fear, forced her head to bob up then down. "Yes, because you were very impolite to James, Sirius, Remus and me. I must insist that you leave now, before I decide I want to exercise my hand some more." James howled with laughter. Severus scowled, but backed away. "This one is protective James. But I'll be back. You'll regret this!"Lily likes the game snap.She plays it all the time with her friends Peter, James, and Remus. (AMY, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 9:51:17 AM) (4) "Severus! Come join us in a hearty game of Snap!" James bellowed in a loud, fake voice. Some muffled laughted ensued the invitation. Snape turned his head and shot a cold glance in Jame's direction. His eyes scanned the room for any signs of mischief, then gave Sirius and Remus sour looks. After they lingered a while on Lily, Snape's eyes flew back to James. "Found yourself a new girlfriend, Potter? I am amazed. Was Amelia so dull?"

Severus scowled, but backed away. "This one is protective James. But I'll be back. You'll regret this!"Lily was trembling from head to toe. "Don't mind him!" James said reassuringly."He's just jealous that you have a better and stronger han than he does.!" To her surprise, Lily joined in their uproarious laughter. They played Snap until the train stopped. "First years this way!" called a man. "Who's he?" Lily asked. " I dunno." James said. "But he sure looks friendly. "Look at that tree!" Sirius said, pointing. "It looks huge and well, bad tempered. Better not try any tricks on that one. It looks like it would give you a good whomp back. A whomping willow!Looks ferocios, doesn't it, Remus?" "Um, yeah." Remus said uncomfortably. "What's the matter with you?" Peter asked. "Nothing, nothing." Remus siad quickly and forcibly cheerfully. The three boys excahnged a look. This was not the Remus they knew. (Aihpos Neyugn, Age 8 to 12, 6/2/2003 4:26:32 PM) (7) "What's wrong with Remus?" James nudged Sirius. "I dunno." he replied. As they took their first glimpse of Hogwarts, the first years heard a scream and then peals of laughter. Sirius grinned at James. "You didn't." he said. "I really couldn't resist." he replied. "What did you do now?" asked Remus in exasperation. "Yeah, what did you do James?" asked Lily eagerl. "I turned that girl into a ferret." "A ferret?" Lily asked in horror. "There wasn't really much to do. She acts like a ferret and everything. That girl Olivia, I mean." But seeing the horrified look on Lily's face made James add, "It's temporary. Harmless really." (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 6/16/2003 3:50:31 PM) (8) Entering Hogwarts Lily caught her first glimpse of the magical world. Moving staircases, and Peeves the Poltergeist. As she looked at Peeves she noticed he was aiming water balloons down at the first years. Including herself. James noticed to, and as Peeves chucked the water balloon at Lily, James dove in front of her and was the one soaked instead. This was surely the beginning of a boyfriend girlfriend relationship. (cerch, Age 8 to 12, 6/24/2003 8:36:39 PM) (9) But no. Hermione made friends and they slowly grew apart. Not to the hating pont, but to the point where they weren't friends anymore. As she grew older, Lily saw James grow into a good Quidditch player, but a conceited one. He constantly ruffled his hair to give it the "just got off my broomstick" look. He also began showing off by releasing and catching a stolen Snitch. Lily bagan to think that James was growing quite arrogant and maybe she was right. Because one day... (sophiawin, Age 8 to 12, 6/27/2003 2:08:38 PM) (10) When I said Hermione, I meant Lily. Sorry!she saw him with a crying first-year. She got the wrong picture; she thought he had hurt him but he had really only... (Sarah, Age 5 to 8, 7/5/2003 11:21:17 PM) (12) tried to cheer him up. The next day Lily ignored James. When he called to her and waved she simpily held her head up high and walked away. Later at lunch Lily saw James sitting with a bunch of gils. She started to feel jealous, but she said to herself "What good about him? he's just a ugly show off" Later she hung out Jeff Grand, he was top of every class. After all the classes were over she started to walk to the Griffindor Hall with Jeff.He was called by Dumbledore. As soon as he left James came up to her, she started to run. She was no match for James speedy legs. He asked " Why are you mad at me?" Lily stopped and stared in disbelief " You know exactly what you did!!!!!" "I don't know what your talking about and I didn't hurt anbody!!!!" scolded James Lily's face softened, James was know never to tell a lie. " You really didn't do anything?" she questioned "No,James shook his head," Honestly" said James " Then what were you doing with that crying first-year?" asked Lily. James laughed "I was just trying to cheer him up." "Oh, ok" replied Lily (DDD, Age 8 to 12, 7/9/2003 10:57:10 PM) (13) Then they heard the sound of footsteps coming fast from behind them. They whirled around to see an angry black-haired, black-eyed Slytherin girl. "POTTER!!!" she shrieked, her shrill cry bouncing off the walls. "Eh, hey Kitty," said James rather nervously. "Who is she?" hissed Lily. Kitty stalked testily to the two of them, and roughly pushed Lily out of her way. "You listen here, Quidditch boy," she spat. "If I find out it was you who cured all of my books to bite my hands and all of my ink things to spill on me, I will personaly make sure you don't ever ride that broom again for several reasons that I don't think would be appropriate to say aloud in public," she growled. "But Kitty, I--""I don't wanna hear it!!" she snapped, cutting him off. "Ya'll can pick on my idiotic brother, I don't got a problem with that, but just stay the heck away from me or PAY!" Without warning, the pissed off burnette smacked James on the side of his head with a crack sound as her ring hit him, then turned sharply on her heel and stalked down the hall. "Who was that?" said Lily in surprise. She had seen her around, but never knew her personaly. Apparently James did. "That was Remus's ex-girlfriend," said James rubbing his head. "Her name is Katherin or Kitty Snape, Severus's sister." (Tia, Age 13 to 18, 7/20/2003 1:32:31 AM) (14) As they walked toward the common room, Lily was questioning James. "So, did you curse Kitt'y stuff to do all that?" "Yeah, Me and Sirius did," he said. "But why?" asked Lily. "Because she dumped Remus. And really, we were pretty afraid to do anything to that girl. She's got an attitude of a kitty in a pond. And if you think what we do to her brother is bad, you've never seen her do anything," he said. "So why did you curse her stuff if you knew she could beat the living crap out of you?" asked Lily. "Because she hurt Remus," he said. "After she dropped him, he was depressed for two weeks straight, so we figured we had to do something about this Kitty," said James. "Well, it sound to me like Kitty's got a temper," said Lily. "Yeah, but she doesn't have it in for me as much as for Sirius. We better check on him later and make sure he still has all of his limbs," said James. Lily looked back and thought she caught a glimpse of a silky-furred black kitten crossing the hall, carrying a quill and a prefect badge, but she blinked and the cat was gone. (Tia, Age 13 to 18, 7/20/2003 1:40:28 AM) (15) Sirius (fortunatly)did have all of his limbs. But, he was pretty bruised. When James visited him in the hospital wing, Sirius told what had happened. "Kitty hit me with a tripping jinx, and her new boyfriend started beating me up. I had to hit them with a leg locker curse before she would stop." "Oh come on, Sirius, you could have done better than that. ' James teased "Next time, try something a little more effective." "You try hexing someone when they've got you pinned to the ground." Sirius said grinning."Oh yeah, and guess who asked me out to the Halloween Ball?" James looked shocked. "You got asked to the Halloween Dance?" He asked. "Yeah, Lily asked me" Sirius said. Suddenly all of the color drew from James face. "What?" James asked. "Yeah, weird huh? She just came in a few minutes ago, Looking really mad. So, I asked her what was wrong. She said nothing and right away got into the whole descusion about the Halloween dance. Then, She just-came out and asked me" Sirius said frowing as he thought about Lily. James was now burning with jelousy. "I don't get it! Lily asking you to the Ball! It just don't make sense!" James yelled throwing his hands in the air with fury. "Whoa, dude, don't have a cow! Why are you so mad anyway! I thought you'd at least be happy about me finding a date" Sirius looking very hurt. James breathed in and out and tried to calm himself down. For the longest time, He had a crush on Lily Evans. The girl who had always told him off everytime he was getting into trouble. The girl who had stuck up for greasy haired Snape. The girl who cheered him on at Qudditch games. And now, She was going out with his best friend. It made him think.....How can things get any worse? (Ginger_Snapes, Age 13 to 18, 7/29/2003 1:06:38 AM) (17) But another problem was about to near.You see,Kitty,had fallen in love with Sirius and seeing him with Lily at the dance,well was going to cause trouble.Meanwhile,James was figuring a way to get Lily to dance with him,but then he'd feel guilty.... (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 8/8/2003 1:31:15 PM) (18) Kitty tracked Lily down with fury."how dare u!" she screamed holding lily against the wall." how could u ask sirus out 2 the dance" she throw a punch at her" ooohh lily u hit the last straw" throwing another punch at her "u better keep ur dirty paws off my sirus" letting her grip loosen 2 kick her" and if u dont" kitty punched lily in the stumouch causing lily 2 bend over in pain then kitty kneed her in her face "ur life will be living nightmare" kitty slammed her fist on lily's back causeing her to fall down " and in that nightmare they'll be more of these"kitty kicked lily in her shins" and if u tell any one" slapping her face "you'll be sry"lily said and walked away grinning and muttering under her breath "and that was just a taster (Shawnie, Age 13 to 18, 8/12/2003 4:29:45 PM) (19) Kitty tracked Lily down with fury."how dare u!" she screamed holding lily against the wall." how could u ask sirus out 2 the dance" she throw a punch at her" ooohh lily u hit the last straw" throwing another punch at her "u better keep ur dirty paws off my sirus" letting her grip loosen 2 kick her" and if u dont" kitty punched lily in the stumouch causing lily 2 bend over in pain then kitty kneed her in her face "ur life will be living nightmare" kitty slammed her fist on lily's back causeing her to fall down " and in that nightmare they'll be more of these"kitty kicked lily in her shins" and if u tell any one" slapping her face "you'll be sry"lily said and walked away grinning and muttering under her breath "and that was just a taster (Shawnie, Age 13 to 18, 8/12/2003 4:29:48 PM) (20) James found her in the hallway. "Lily!?" Sirius looked horrified. "I'll bet that I know who did this." "Who?" James asked him."Kitty." "How do you know." "I didn't think that boys slapped their opponenet's faces when they fought. It had to be a girl. And Lily isn't hated by anyone." "Except Kitty." James said. "Well, come on, we have to get her to the hospital wing.""Are you ok, Lily?" James asked the next morning as he and Sirius visited her. James brought her 2 dozen chocolate frogs. "Does it look like I'm fine to you?!" she asked. "Of course I am!" she said smiling. "She beat you up pretty bad!" Sirius said. He too had brought something sweat. He handed Lily half a dozen bags of Bertie Botts every flavour beans. (Jazzy D ( I hope that's enough to start of the story again), Age 8 to 12, 8/17/2003 4:11:20 PM) (22) "Well, I'm glad that she's okay." James said as they walked from the hospital wing. "Yeah." Sirius said. "But how will we make sure that she doesn't get beat up again?" he asked. "I really don't know." James said, thoughtfully. "But I think that seh's safe from Kitty. For now." he added. Sirius stared at him. "What do you mean?" "I meahn, Kitty asked me today. And now, she's asking Wromtail.Before you know it, half the boys in the school will have been asked by her." (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/18/2003 8:25:10 AM) (23) Sirius laughed. Lily frowned at him. "What?" "Remus?...Kit-ty?" Sirius replied between gasps, clutching his sides. "Come off it! I've known Remus since muggle preschool, he's siiiiingle, baby. No, wait, i think he's trying to court Morvena" Sirius nodded his head over at Remus, who was talking timidly with a very pretty, shy-looking black haired girl near the marble staircase. Sirius stopped laughing. "Who told you such doxy-dung anyway? Bet it was Snivellus." "No..don't worry" Lily frowned slightly and glanced at James, who was glowering at them from across the Great Hall. "well, shall we dance?" (..., Age 13 to 18, 8/19/2003 5:25:45 AM) (24) the sun was shining invitingly outside. Sirius was bored. He saw Lupin's homework diary lying open on the table. He scanned the Gryffindor commonroom. James and Peter were playing gobstones by the windowsill. Remus was asleep in a chintz armchair, no doubt exhausted from the dance last night. Sirius picked up the diary and read "Remus J Lupin" "Hey Moony," he called, "Moooony" Remus jerked awake. "Yes?" Sirius grinned. "What's your middle name?" (anon, Age 13 to 18, 8/19/2003 5:36:06 AM) (25) Lupin frowned slightly. "Hmm..you'll have to guess it before midnight or you're not to find out for the rest of eternity." Sirius considered this for a moment. "Ok" he grinned "Hey, Prongs, Wormtail! C'mon..you've got to help me find Monny's middle name." Peter got a faceful of stiksap from one of James' gobstones while James roared with laughter. "Sorry..Padfoot, what was that?" Lupin rolled his eyes. "Sirius is trying to uncover the mystery of my middle name." he muttered, rubbing his eyes and began to read his Transfiguration essay. Sirius leaned over the table.James and Peter gathered around. "I bet it's Janus" Lupin shook his head. "Jay?" Peter suggested. "It's not just 'J', is it, Moony?" "I'm afraid not" Lupin smiled. "Jeremy?" "No" "Jesse?""No" "James?" James grinned. "No.." Lily entered the commonroom followed by a pretty Chinese girl. James glared at Sirius then said loudly "I'll be outside, Come on, Peter" and stormed out of the commonroom, trailed by Peter. Lily frowned after them. Sirius scrutinised the girl. "Wait a sec..you're Aeris, aren't you? Oops..I thought you were Morvena. She's you're twin in Ravenclaw, right?" Aeris nodded. She glanced at Remus, who was gazing at her. They both blushed and looked away quickly. Comprehension dawned on Lily's face. 'Sirius, will you come with me to the library?" She winked at him and looked from Aeris to Remus. Sirius looked surprised. "Ohhh, right." They made their way to the Fat Lady's portrait. Sirius was grinning mischievously. "We'll be back in an hour, Aeris." Lily called. "Yeah, Moony..ditto." Sirius was still grinning. They disappeared through the portrait hole. Aeris sat down beside Remus. "hello" he whispered. "hi". She smiled nervously. "I've noticed something..you're disappear once a month, always at full moon. You're a werewolf, aren't you?" she whispered gently, still smiling. Remus gazed perplexedly at her. "I..er..I.." he glanced hopelessly around the room. "Yes, I am. I've been trying to keep it a secret for over 3 years now. I'm sorry I didn't tell you last night..you see, I..." He sighed. Aeris continued to smile. "Yes?" "I..you're..you're the cleverest witch in our year, and I..I..love you." He glanced away, blushing. "Oh...Remus.." Aeris looked as though Christmas had come early. "I figured out that you were a werewolf ages ago..just that, it would seem imprudent to ask, wouldn't it? I don't care if you're a werewolf, seriously" She blushed. Remus gaped at her. "You..don't mind me being a werewolf?" "Why should I? Ok, I'll let you in on a secret.." Aeris whipped out her wand and transformed into a silver, sleek she-wolf. Remus gasped. "Aeris..." Words failed him. She transformed back into her own self. "Yes?" "I'm think I'm the luckiest person in alive." "Yeah, so am I." They stoodfacing each other, somewhat breathless. Slowly, Remus bent his face towards Aeris' and kissed her. A few minutes later, Sirius and Lily entered the room. (..:., Age 13 to 18, 8/22/2003 9:24:47 AM) (27) Lupin and Aeris had stopped kissing. They were both blushing slightly yet looked extremely pleased about something. Sirius fought to keep a straight face "So, did you two kiss?" Lily glared at him and coughed slightly. Remus nodded, his hand around Aeris'. Sirius whooped and hastily turned it into a coughing fit when he caught Lily's eye. "We'll be in the West Tower..come on Sirius." Lily grabbed his arm and they departed from the room, Lily hissing audibly "You are so tactless!" (Jiji, Age 8 to 12, 8/23/2003 2:55:55 AM) (28) Aeris turned back to Remus. "You know.." she said shyly "..the only reason i learnt to transfigure into a wolf was because i realised that you might be a werewolf. Now that i'm sure you are...there's no reason why i can't be with you when you transform once a month..aren't you only dangerous to humans?" Remus smiled and nodded. He drew a chair for her beside the table and they sat down. Aeris gazed thoughtfully at the fire. Her eyes widened. "Remus! I've got an idea! You know how you transform into a werewolf?" Remus nodded slowly "Yeeeess?" "Does it hurt" Remus nodded "Well...if you could transfigure into a wolf, then it mightn't hurt as much because a wolf to a werewolf..not much to change." Her eyes twinkled. Remus stared at her in amazement. "Yeah..maybe..should we ask McGonagall before i start trying?" Aeris considered this. "Hmm...maybe..i know this sounds crazy, but you might just be cured if you transfigure into a wolf when there's full moon because...it only seems to affect werewolves when they're as people...i'm sorry.." she trailed off apologetically. "No! it's a brilliant idea...yet...how come no one ever thought of it for, well, since the dawn of time?" Aeris grinned. "If you've bothered to look up the list of registered Animagi, there are only 7 this century and none of them since the first registered in the 1100s have been a wolf. I'm unregistered" she added. "You won't dob me in, would you?" The corners of Remus' mouth twitched slightly "Wouldn't dream of it. So...how do you start?" (anon, Age 13 to 18, 8/23/2003 3:18:29 AM) (29) Well I started by learning about the wolf.Have u told Peter and Lily and Siris and and James yet?ask Aeris. Well, no i acutlly haven't. haven't ur friends notice u leave every full moon once a month?asked Aeris. I suspect they have noticed. But i'm afraid if i tell them their going to not be my friends any more.replied Remus. How did u get turned into a were wolf? (Katy, Age 8 to 12, 8/27/2003 6:07:55 PM) (30) Remus sighed and sank into the chintz armchair in front of the window. "I was only 6 when I was bitten..my parents are keen astronomers, and we have a mansion near a forest. So one night, my father and mother took me stargazing near the edge of the forest. I wandered off by myself, chasing a Bowtruckle and went deeper and deeper into the woods, where I met a werewolf. If it had not been a cub, I would have died, but perhaps death would have been better than this..." his voice broke off.."well, ever since, I see myself as a burden to my parents. They are the best parents a werewolf can have- they tried everything, but there is still no cure...they have done more than enough for me." he stared out the window. Aeris gave his shoulder a gentle pat "Maybe tonight you can start practising," she said softly, "i'd better be going- i promised Lily to be in the library by 5" Remus nodded silently and Aeris left. When she had left, he murmured "Just a few more years and i won't bother you anymore, mum, dad...i know you will leave me everything as inheritence, and will probably suppport me if i can't find a job, i won't take a sickle from you or mum after i leave school..and if i really need to borrow money, i'll return all of it, to the last knut...because, i don't deserve it. I'm sorry, mum, dad, for not listening to you that night..." he buried his face in his hands and a glistening tear fell through his fingers.) He sighed deeply. "I never really deserved any of this, Mum,Dad. All that you've done for me- its so much. I just feel as though I disappoint you and disobey you, too much. I'll try harder now. I really will. I'll try to deserve all that you've done for me." This time, he said this firmly to himself, a resolution to try to deserve the love and devotion that his parents had given him. He looked out of the window. Professor Dumbledore had taught him to calculate when the next full moon would be. Two days, he thought. Two days. (Jiji,you're a really good writer) (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/28/2003 12:39:04 PM) (32) Remus continued to gaze out the window above steepled fingers, a faint line between his eyebrows. Dusk was drawing nearer, darkness slowly conquering the sky. The moon was hovering near the horizon. Remus glanced at it perplexedly and turned away slowly as though pained by it's presence. "Why..?" he murmured (thanks, Sophian!! *smile*) (Jiji, Age 13 to 18, 8/30/2003 8:11:42 AM) (33) Remus started for the passageway quickly. He had put this off way too long. But as he was about to turn the corner, his friends were blocking him. “Hi, Remus.” Sirius said. “What’s the matter?” James asked, looking concerned. “Oh, I’m feeling rather sick.” “But the hospital wing is the other way.” Peter said, looking confused. “Oh, umm.” Remus was trying to see a way out of THIS one. “We need to have a talk.” Sirius said, grasping one arm. “That’s right.” James said. Lupin tried to fight his way out of their grasp. Finally he waved his wand, and disappeared. “What happened?” Peter asked. “He disappeared.” James said, looking around. Remus ran up to the statue, muttered a word, and then slipped into the darkness. He didn’t want to go to the Shrieking Shack right then. He would do that later, but for now, at night, he would transform here. Meanwhile….”I bet that I know where he is.” James said, turning abruptly. “Where, where?” Peter asked eagerly. “James tapped the statue. It opened to reveal a werewolf, on its way to the village. “Oh my-“Sirius said. His mouth opened. The werewolf seemed to be able to detect their presence and turned around slowly. James finally had the sense to slam the entrance shut. “Who is a werewolf in this school? I never heard about one before.” Peter said. “Peter, don’t be stupid, people aren’t going to go in front of the entire school and scream out, ‘I’M A WEREWOLF!!!’ “All of a sudden, something seemed to hit him. “Sirius, is it full moon?” “Well, I think so, why do you ask?” “I think that we should pay a visit to Remus in the Hospital Wing.” James said, walking quickly. “He knocked on the door. “Excuse, me, we’re here to visit Remus Lupin.” “Remus isn’t, here-Oh, I mean, he can’t have any visitors right now.” The nurse replied. “Suspicious.” Sirius said. “Okay, you two, let’s go to that secret passage when the full moon wanes.” “Why?” Peter asked. “Because.” James said impatiently. “I have a hunch on who that werewolf is.” (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 9/1/2003 1:32:02 PM) (34) Sirius let out a bark of laughter. "No.." he stopped, frowning, "James, are you saying that REMUS is a werewolf?" James stopped walking abruptly. There was a manic gleam in his eyes. "Yes, let me see..." they had reached the Gryffindor portrait. "Password?" the Fat Lady mumbled sleepily. "Wolfsbane, I reckon." Peter piped up. "That's the one." the portrait swung open, revealing the empty commonroom. 'Did i ever tell you i had an invisibility cloak?" James turned to the other two, his hand on the doorknob of their dormitory (Neri, Age 13 to 18, 9/5/2003 8:19:29 AM) (35) Peter and Sirius gaped at James "Really? Whoa, mate, how could you hide something like that from us?" "Shhh!" James hissed furiously, "I'll explain inside" he closed the dormitary door after them. "Well?" Sirius bounced onto his bed. "Here." James fumbled with the lock on his trunk and pulled out a cloak made of some sort of shimmering, fluid grey material. Sirus and Peter's eyes widened. "Think of all the fun we could have under that!" Sirius breathed. "That's not the point," James frowned slightly and rubbed a spot of dirt off the hem of the cloak, "We're trying to track down Remus." "Pity Muggle video-camera's don't work around here.." Peter mumbled. James laughed and went over to the window. The whomping willow was swaying menacingly in the moonlihgt. James stopped laughing. There were two figures under the tree, one smaller than the other and the other was prodding something on the trunk with a long stick. "Psst, hey, ou two, come over here..." Sirius bounded over. "What is it..?" "Look" James whispered. A cloud shifted overhead, allowing a sliver of moonlight to illuminate the grounds below. They all gasped- Remus Lupin was being led into a trapdoor near a small hut by Madam Pomfrey.Moments later, Madam Pomfrey appeared again. There was a faint yello light in the shack. A terrible howl filled the night air. Sirius, James and Peter all shivered. It was coming from the hut. The hut where Remus was supposedly in. Was he being hurt? Without sparing as much as a glance at one another, the three friends tore out of the castle towards the shack. (chriture, Age 5 to 8, 9/9/2003 5:00:44 AM) (37) They stopped in front of the whomping willow. "Quick! Under the Invisibility cloak!" James panted and threw it over their heads. "Hey, is that a knot on the trunk?" Sirius squinted at through the knot of menacingly swaying branches. "Yeh, reckon so..it's about where Madam Pomfrey poked it." James picked up the stick that she had used to freeze the tree and poked the knot. The tree froze immediately. "Right, where's the trapdoor?" James scanned the forest floor. "Here!" squeaked Peter, indicating to a dark brown wooden slab near the base of the willow. Sirius swore. "It's locked.. Alohomora!" Nothing happened. They ran toward the shack, looking for another entrance. All the windows were boarded up. James peered through a sliver between two boards and gasped. In the room was a werewolf, ripping up a chairleg. Sirius craned to look too. "Blimey!" he whispered weakly, "Is that..." James swallowed and nodded. "Who?" Peter said, bobbing unsuccessfully to look too. "Remus Lupin is...a werewolf." murmured Sirius, still staring through the crack. (Jiji, Age 8 to 12, 9/9/2003 5:17:12 AM) (38) The next morning, Remus joined them at breakfast. His robes were hanging loosely and he looked pale and peaky. His face was slightly grey and there were dark shadows under his eyes. "Remus." whispered James "Remus, you're a werewolf, aren't you?" he grinned. Remus almost knocked over his goblet. He did not answer. "Well?" Sirius whispered. Remus slowly nodded. "But how? How did you find out?" "We had our means." James and Sirius exchanged winks. 'So, I guess you won't want to be friends with a werewol.." "Don't be daft, Remus." Sirius cut in briskly. "You're one of our best friends. "Yeah, all we have to do now is to find a way to be with you when...you're sick." James yawned. Remus's eyes went wide. "You mean, you don't mind..?" "Why should we? It'll be so cool having a...wer...I mean,a friend like you." Sirius muttered, glancing furtively over to the Slytherin table at Snape, who was clearly trying to eavesdrop. Remus frowned slightly "Do you know where Peter is, by the way?" (Neri, Age 13 to 18, 9/9/2003 5:37:31 AM) (39) "No"ansered James.then after breakfast Sirius,James,and Remus went back to the commonroom "Wolfsbane" Lupin said.And they entered the commonroom."Hey Prongs"said remus "can I ask again how you found out that I was a werewolf?" "Sure" ansered James.Just the Lily entered the commonroom."Are you guys up to something?" she asked. (Aaron, Age 8 to 12, 9/29/2003 7:18:16 PM) (40) No ansered JAmes. Oh I was just wondering if you were-""BUT WE'RE NOT UP TO SOME"*cough cough coooooough*tHING"and he spit the candy licourice wand out of his mouth."Wormtail!your here where have ya b-""worm- AH HA YOU are up to SOMETHING"shouted Lily.and she ran out of the common room."Where have you been Peter?" asked Sirius.To get you guys some sweets. said Peter."Sweet!" exclaimed JAmes. They stopped in front of the whomping willow. "Quick! Under the Invisibility cloak!" James panted and threw it over their heads. "Hey, is that a knot on the trunk?" Sirius squinted at through the knot of menacingly swaying branches. "Yeh, reckon so..it's about where Madam Pomfrey poked it."

(Aaron, Age 8 to 12, 9/29/2003 7:39:30 PM) (41) Then they start munching on it.After the little snack,they went to defence against the dark art just then Lily came and said "Professor Dumbledor wants you they went to Dumbledor's office. "Hello James and Peter you will both be put in detention,meet me by 8:30p.m. at the whopping willow." said Professor Dumbledore.

(27) Around 8:30, later that night, James and Peter crept quietly down towards the Great Hall to go outside to meet Dumbledore. "Ouch!" James swore to himself and turned to face Peter. He had stopped, causing James to bump into him. As he looked at Peter's face, he noticed that something was odd about it. Peter's skin seemed to be paler than before and his eyes had a flicker of fear poised in them. He looked around the corridor and quickly found a n empty classroom. He set off a few dungbombs, hoping someone would notice them and come running, and notice Peter. He started off again towards the grounds, and ran to the Whomping Willow, where Dumbledore was waiting. (Erin, Age 8 to 12, 12/15/2003 5:56:51 PM, DayoftheMarauders)

(28) "In this detention, you will fight the whopping willow.I will help if you get seriously hurt.Now go!"Heeeaaaa"James Drew His wand "Incendio tria!" "Flipendo duo!"
