James finally masters the transfiguration spell that transforms him into an animagus, and the experience surpasses all expectations.
And this is why I love you most of all.
James is going to make Evans fall in love with him.
(Despite what Sirius thinks.)
After escaping Voldemort yet again, Harry returns home after his sixth year hoping to regroup. But Voldemort has different plans and too soon events turn deadly. The Dark Lord has a new pawn in his quest for domination and immortality. An ancient power--content to remain in the shadows for several thousand years--has now re-entered the active world, implanting a gift upon an unlikely carrier. As Voldemort makes progress against the ministry, Dumbledore must call in his last favors. The Trio enter their last year at Hogwarts, unsure of their present or their futures, and most especially their feelings. (Ignores HBP and DH--started before their publication)
Potter opened his mouth as though he was about to say something. Oh, no. He was going to correct me. Potter was going to tell Petunia that I had lied. He was going to say that he wasn't my boyfriend. I couldn't let him do that. For the love of Merlin, I could not let him do that. I had to stop him. He couldn't tell her the truth. So, I did the only conceivable thing I could think of to make him stop. I kissed him.

What would happen if Harry Potter wasn't born as a boy, but instead a girl? And would what we know of the first book change if it was Severus Snape that came to fetch the cute little girl instead of Hagrid? Definitively! Especially if even the snarky Slytherin can't help but find Arielle Potter cute.

The role Remus played in bringing Lily and James together.
What happened to Severus when he died?
What did he see?
Who was there to greet him?
This is my take on the immediate aftermath of his death.
