HARRY POTTER; marauders + last words
“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
“I can’t buy a new stomach,” Lily noted, unconsciously verbal.
“Truer words were never spoken.”
The redhead jumped three or four inches out of her chair. She looked about frantically. James Potter leaned against a nearby bookcase, crooked smirk in place upon his (“Stupid,” thought Lily) face.
“Were you eavesdropping?” she demanded in an undertone, so that Mrs. Sevoy would not snap at them.
“Were you talking to yourself?” countered James. Hands in his pockets, he made no effort to lower his volume while he walked towards the table.
Lily frowned. “Don’t you have some puppies to drown or something?”
“Are you advocating animal violence?” retorted the other. Solitude was so very, very much more important than enemies.
“Have I ever supported your extracurriculars?” said Lily. “And please don’t s…” James took the other chair at the table: “…sit down,” finished the redhead with a sigh.
Right there, right then, she wanted nothing more than to kiss James. It wasn’t alcohol speaking; it wasn’t just hormones; there could be no more excuses.
She liked James Potter.
Brunette and lovely and flawless, Carlotta Meloni appeared. She wrapped her thin, sun-kissed arms around James’s neck and kissed him on the lips.
James kissed Carlotta back.
And someone walked by to punch Lily in the stomach, knocking the wind out of her for a full six seconds. Or if they didn’t, they might as well have.(x)
→ day two; do you want a marauders prequel? yes.
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be.
“Oh, look the fireworks have started. It must be midnight.”
“You know, you’re supposed to kiss whomever you’re with when the clock strikes twelve.”
“Yeah, I’ve heard that.”
“Well, it would be a travesty to break tradition. Don’t you think?”
“Happy New Year, James.”
“Happy New Year, Evans.”
Fait Accompli, an irreversible action that has happened before those affected by it knew of its existence. We all know how James and Lily’s story ends, in a way so tragic as to make it difficult to appreciate the romance and love that was their story. There is no happily ever after for James and Lily and so we leave them at a place where they are content, departing Hogwarts, ready to embark on their lives together, hopeful, despite the many challenges they face.
They will go on to give the world their son, Harry, and to die in order to protect him. In doing so, unknowingly they would change the course of wizard history. If James and Lily had not lived and loved, Harry never would have. He would never befriend a lonely Muggle girl, a forgotten son, an awkward, Herbology loving boy or a zany blonde girl. He never would have fallen in love with his best friends younger sister, and the world would never have seen James Sirius, Albus Severus and Lily Luna. He never would have restored peace to the wizarding world, all the while remaining ever humble and unassuming. Though it doesn’t seem that James and Lily’s story is one with a happy ending, their lives did not end with their deaths. For as long as their son, the product of their love, lives and gives his love to others, their love too will continue.

He was James, and she was Lily, and one day they shared a kiss, but before that they shared many arguments,for he was cocky, and she was sweet, and matters of the heart require time. (x)
I got bruises on my knees for you
And grass stains on my knees for you
Got holes in my new jeans for you
