Lily's Love Saved Them All

This blog is dedicated to Lily Evans Potter. Her unfailing love for her son kept him alive to fulfill his destiny to kill the Dark Lord. Without her sacrifice, Voldemort would have kill countless other people. She saved not only her son that night, but the magical community as well. This is for her. <3 (The art is not ours. We have mostly no artistic abilities. We just found them on google and Deviantart. Links to the artists we use below! Any writing that you do not recognize as the wonderful JK Rowling's is ours however.)

15. Lily loved reading crime/mystery novels. They were her absolute favorite books.

Growing up, these were her bedtime stories. Her dad would read books to her by authors like Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle. It was something they did every night until Lily started going to Hogwarts. She realized she had difficulty sleeping when she didn’t read anything by her favorite authors so she started reading them to herself. Her favorite books are all of the Sherlock Homes books and Murder on the Orient Express.

14. Lily had a crush on James in third year.

She had just started liking boys, and even though she had vowed to hate him forever in first year, her attention settled on him. Unfortuantely, James was oblivious to her infatuation and pulled a particularly mean joke involving a change in her hair color. Lily retaliated by making his voice high and squeaky. This officially ended her interest in him, and began his interest in her.

13. Lily hated the prejudices between the whole school and Slytherins.

She didn’t think that they should skip down the corridors, arm in arm and singing but she didn’t want them at each others throats either. She thought that they should all treat each other equally, no matter what blood status you had.

She firmly believed that it’s your own actions that show who you truly are, not who your parents were, what house you were in, or who you hang out with. It always came down to what you did. That’s why she never forgave Severus for calling her a mudblood.

12. James was a redhead once….kind of.

Sirius told James, in 4th year, that if he were a redhead, it would get Lily’s attention. James believed him and had Sirius dye his hair that night. He came to breakfast the next day and walked up to Lily. Before he could say anything to her she burst out laughing. She handed him a mirror and James saw something that wasn’t there the night before. He had bright blue spots mixed in with the red. Before he could reply with some comment to cover up what had happened, he heard Sirius’ bark of laughter behind him and started to chase the boy around the campus.

"Hey, Evans. Can I borrow a quill?" James said, wiggling his eyebrows.
Lily grabbed his tie, pulled him back and leaned over her desk. &#8220;Listen Potter, if you make one more suggestive comment-.&#8221; Lily began.
"Since when is asking to borrow a quill considered &#8216;suggestive&#8217;?" James asked, smiling devilishly.
"Coming from your mouth, anything&#8217;s suggestive." Lily replied, letting go of James&#8217; tie and sitting back in her seat.
"Oh come on, Evans-" James began.
"Good morning, class." Professor McGonnagle said, walking into the classroom, stopping the conversation between the two teenagers.

"Hey, Evans. Can I borrow a quill?" James said, wiggling his eyebrows.

Lily grabbed his tie, pulled him back and leaned over her desk. “Listen Potter, if you make one more suggestive comment-.” Lily began.

"Since when is asking to borrow a quill considered ‘suggestive’?" James asked, smiling devilishly.

"Coming from your mouth, anything’s suggestive." Lily replied, letting go of James’ tie and sitting back in her seat.

"Oh come on, Evans-" James began.

"Good morning, class." Professor McGonnagle said, walking into the classroom, stopping the conversation between the two teenagers.

11. Lily was actually a really good artist.

At a young age she was always drawing on things, including walls when she didn’t know better. There’s even a wall her parents didn’t paint over because they though it was too cute.

At home, she had bookshelves full of completed sketchbooks and her walls held all her favorites that she called her “Pride and Joy.” In the rest of the house, her work was everywhere. Her parents hung up her stuff on all the walls, which embarrassed her greatly, but even Petunia had some of her sister’s art on her walls.

At school, she always had a sketchbook in her hand and whenever she got bored she would doodle. If she wasn’t in the common room or the library, she was probably out by the lake, looking for inspiration. Her favorite things to sketch were the castle, Hogsmead and, later, James.
