James Potter and Lily Evans

Just some thoughts about the progression of the relationship between Lily Evans and James Potter…

  • Seeing her on the train during first year and thinking he’d never seen anyone with such beautiful eyes
  • Searching for that red hair while they were going on to the boats and being excited when she was on his
  • Eagerly introducing himself and dismissing Snape
  • Not because he didn’t like him(yet), but because he was too focused on Lily
  • Lily being slightly upset that this boy was ignoring her friend and writing James off as an asshole
  • James being hurt and deciding he needed to give off a better impression
  • Not knowing how though
  • Smiling when Lily joined Gryffindor
  • Continuously trying to talk to her, even though she pretended she couldn’t hear him
  • Sirius, Remus and Peter exchanging a look when they realized their new friend couldn’t seem to shut up about The Beautiful Lily Evans™️
  • James spending hours trying to think up a new way to get her attention
  • It started off fairly innocently
  • He purposefully failed tests to get her help
  • That backfired when she referred him to someone else
  • Then he brought her a Lily
  • Unfortunately Snape gave her one at the same time so his was left in the dust
  • He moved on to more elaborate schemes after a while
  • Wildly professing his love for her in the Great Hall
  • His cheek was sore for a few days after that one
  • Not as sore as his heart
  • For five years, the other three Marauders had to listen to James mourn his lack of love
  • He tried to date someone else for a little bit
  • She broke it off after she got tired of every single time James said “Lily” rather then her own name
  • Lily wondered why she was so mad at this short lived relationship
  • After James saved Snape’s life, he was shocked that Lily didn’t lash out at him as much as before
  • He realized that maybe he should change the way he acted about things
  • That it was the fact that he tried so hard that turned her away
  • He became a much kinder person
  • Instead of making grand declerations of love
  • He’d leave small notes for her
  • In books he’d heard she’d needed
  • On her plate when she wasn’t looking
  • Lily Evans finally agreed to date James once she saw him with his head on Remus’ bed, sleeping after the long night of the full moon
  • It was then she finally saw the real James Potter
  • Their first date was really awkward
  • James was quite skittish and excited 
  • But he tried his best and Lily appreciated it
  • In the end
  • Lily grew to love him
  • And he truly loved her
  • And they ended up with a small baby boy
  • A baby boy that they loved together
  • In the end
  • When Lily said “Momma loves you”
  • She wasn’t just talking to Harry
  • She was also talking to James
  • Just the smallest bit
  • And when she said “Dadda loves you”
  • She was telling herself that as well
  • Because she knew James Potter loved her
  • Had died for her and their son
  • And her last thought
  • She’d like to say it was of Harry
  • But it was of James
  • Knowing she’d see him again soon

LOIS:  Look, Clark, I know that I got a little thorny when you raised the red flag on A.C.
CLARK:  I was just trying to look out for you.
LOIS:  And I appreciate it.  I’ve just never had someone to help guide me through the shark-infested ocean of romance. … Not that I can’t fend for myself.
CLARK:  You know, I think I was wrong about our friend A.C.

Damian Wayne problem 8,783: Your best friend and girlfriend hate each other and are jealous of the time you spend with the other. She also ships you with your best friend and is responsible for approximately 47.4% of the current slash fiction about you two, and has been since you were Robin and squeaky voiced.

Damian Wayne problem 2,445: SuperBat fan fiction is the most popular pairing in the universe and has been since before you were born. You hadn’t even met the new Superboy and there was already slash fiction about the two of you. You want to blame Drake for this, but know it’s your father’s fault.
