Lily/James Fanfiction Recs

 Since this journal has been rather quiet lately, I thought I'd recommend some of my favorite Lily/James fanfictions.  Recommendations in return would be nice too ;)  Lily/James love must be spread! :p (Summeries by authors)  I labeled any that were rated M, just in case.

By Kioko:

The Christmas Gift
"James recieves an early gift for Christmas from his wife that he never expected. A fluffy fic, just in time for the holidays."

The Incident in the Library
"Lily Evans has been distracted lately…and it’s all because of James Potter and his stupid, unbuttoned shirt. Hardly any fluff, but plenty of shirtless James for everybody. Seventh year fic."

Nothing on Earth
"By society's standards, they could never be together - Lily was wealthy and already engaged. James was London street trash. When they meet on board the RMS Titanic, the connection is instant and soon, nothing can keep them apart...except maybe an iceberg."

By Oynnej:

Getting Serious
"James struggles in taking the next step of getting serious with Lily Evans. ONE SHOT."
 - not about what you may think.  I thought this fic was really funny and original.

It's My Party
Lily discovers her boyfriend snogging another girl one night and decides the only way to get him back is to give him a taste of his own medicine. She enlists the help of the Marauders. Rating has been increased by request." (Rated M)
 - A bit AU, but I thought it was well written and really fun to read!

Under the Enchanted Mistletoe by passionflower24
"James and Lily. Stuck under a sprig of enchanted mistletoe. The only way to get out? A kiss."

Midnight Happenings by lannah
"Lily's having some trouble sleeping but of course, James is there to 'help' her. One Shot"

Dung Detention by Anaela loves who
"Snape’s worst memory isn’t exactly treasured by James either, mostly because he was forced to shovel dragon dung fertiliser as punisment. Running into Lily Evans, covered in it from head to foot, didn’t exactly help either.Rated for language LJ ONESHOT" 
 - the main focus of this oneshot isn't Lily/James, however it is mentioned and does play its part.  This fic is just too funny to be missed.

Cameo Images by Procrastinator-starting2moro 
"We don't remember days, we remember moments. A series of James and Lily drabbles. Part 16, a missing scene from Deathly Hallows. The story of how the vase from Petunia was broken."
 - actually, pretty much anything by Procrastinator-starting2moro.

From Ashes
by shiiki
"How did James Potter change to become the man that Lily Evans could love?
In the Christmas of their sixth year, a tragedy in the wizarding world sparks a change in the lives of the pair who would eventually become the most famous parents in the magical world."
 - I recommend her entire series (From Ashes, Falling with Grace, Rising from Embers)

Sweet Torture by walkoam3
"A fun, romantic comedy highlighting the best moments between Hogwarts' most famous couple, none other than Lily Evans and James Potter. Join them as they bicker, flirt, and drive each other to the brink of insanity, not to mention the sexual tension... " (rated M)

A Very Thin Line by lavenderbrown 
"Lily Evans hates James Potter. James is determined to change Lily's mind. A battle of wits ensues, proving the old adage, 'There's a very thin line between love and hate.'"
 - Very good fic, however it definitely deserves its M rating.

Prelude to Destiny by AnotherDreamer
"They lived to defy Voldemort. They lived to enact vengeance. They lived in the shadow of better people. They lived to earn the respect of better people. Their story is more than the tragic beginning of the great victory over the Dark Lord. It weaves its way through heartbreaking love, games of magical tag, hours of learning animagi transformations, dates with the wrong sort of boy, and the bonds that death cannot break. This is the story of the people who will star in the footnotes of the great battles of Harry Potter- they who History deems unworthy of great attention and who worked diligently with Destiny to pave the path of the Boy Who Lived."

Call Me Lily by Scriblerian
"Oneshot. Lily/James. Short, sweet, fluffy fun! Excerpt : Lily was a handful sober…he could only imagine what she was like when she had eleventeen shots of Firewhiskey in her..."
Cute, Drunk!Lily fic.  Anyone know of anymore well written drunk!Lily or drunk!James fics?  These two are so amusing when drunk...

These are just a few of many.  Thought I'd post a couple though..  For more recommendations, I recommend this site:

Any other fans out there care to recommend some of their own favourites? :)

Some of these look really good - thanks for sharing.
One of the best drunk!Lily fics I've read is The Six Degrees of Drunkeness, by BC Daily. It's quite long for a oneshot - over 9000 words, but it's one of the most well written, well characterised, adorable fics I've read.

Oh I forgot to mention that one... I have read it before, but not for a long time (thanks for reminding me - I just reread it ;) ) It really is adorable :D

I know. All her fics are adorable...

Thank you so much for sharing! I can't think of any that you don't have on here but I do I'll come back and post.
