Your comments have to wait
I hope you guys don't hate me
I've got too much on my plate
I hope you understand...
When I tried some speculating
The backlash made me sick*,
So I'll do my speculating
In a fic...

My apologies to the late Jim Croce, but I just couldn't resist. :)

Anyway, here's the fic, created from the smouldering ashes of the Evil James Theory of a few posts back. Not that I ever, in spite of what might have seemed to be the natural conclusion of my argument, believed James to be entirely evil and devoid of all compassion, loyalty, courage or other redeeming features. As Sting said, I hear the Russians love their children too... but I digress. Anyway, I think those who worried that my intent was to demonize James in order to make Snape look good might be pleasantly surprised by this story. Or not. Decide for yourself.

Comments and criticisms welcomed.

* I mean that literally. Headaches and nausea, to be precise. However, I appear to be a masochist of some sort, because I still love my fandom. Especially when it inspires me to lovely heroic thoughts about Neville. *hugs Neville*
1. Thanks for the cool discussions )

2. I love a neat turn of phrase )

3. Yes, I know everyone is a twit at fifteen )

4. There is a difference between a reason and an excuse )

5. My feelings are not the issue -- really )

Finally, it looks as though this whole froufarah has made fandom_wank. And tomorrow... the world! Muaaah ha ha ha ha ha!

Er, I think I'll just go to bed now. And maybe in the morning, LiveJournal will decide to be nice and start delivering my comment e-mails again. I haven't had a single LJ post delivered to my inbox in the last twelve hours, so if you said something insightful and/or witty and/or abusive and I haven't responded, it's probably because I missed it. I'll do my best to catch up tomorrow...
I was debating to myself just last night whether I ought to write up a theory that had been taking shape in my mind over the last few weeks, when I saw this, on the comments to a recent posting at The Leaky Cauldron:
I kind of get this idea that all of the Marauders were vying for Lily (as if she were some object *F*) and James just happened to win...but it's curious how they end up together. I mean, the scenes in OotP. Eek. I'm wondering if James does something to her magically to entice her.

So, since I am obviously not the only one who has had this thought since reading OotP, and since [livejournal.com profile] lizbee and [livejournal.com profile] pharnabazus have been kind enough not only to indulge my heretical musings in this regard but to admit that the idea makes sense and even (in the case of [livejournal.com profile] pharnabazus) to suggest corroborating evidence, I am going to make the case here and let my readers tear it to bits -- or build it up some more -- as they see fit.
