Lily and James Potter

This is a small memory for Lily and James Potter who died yesterday {Halloween] 34 years ago. 

Lily Potter [or before she was married evans] was born on the 30th of January 1960 and died at the age of 21 on October 31st 1981. She was a muggle and like Hermione was the only witch in her family. Her parents were very proud of her, but Petunia [Dursley now] thought she was a freak. In school she was known to be one of Horace Slughorns favourite students of all time, She was also a Gryffindor student, also in her seventh year at Hogwarts she was Head Girl. Just before she got her Hogwarts letter, Severus Snape noticed her and told her she would get her letter, when she did he told her all about Hogwarts; They were very good friends. When she and Snape went to Hogwarts, James and his friends [Sirius, and remus] bullied Snape a lot, which lead to Lily not liking them and often standing up for Snape, though he was sometimes very ungrateful. ¬†Though later in her seventh year she fell for James and married him, later on they had Harry, Harry was only a bit older than one when Pettigrew betrayed the Potters and told Voldemort about their hiding place, he came to Godrics Hollow, killed James first and then told Lily to step aside and that he would spare her and only kill Harry [Due to Snape begging Voldemort not to Kill Lily as he loved her] But Lily refused again and again so voldemort killed her, Lilys love had been so strong so when lord Voldemort tried to kill Harry he couldn’t.

James Potter was born in a wizarding family on the 27th of march 1960. so he went to Hogwarts he was sorted into Gryffindor along with Lily and made friends with Remus Lupin, SIrius Black and Peter Pettigrew. They often bullied Snape, which lead to Lily not liking him. she though intheir seventh year fell in love with him [he was head boy at the time] He and Lily got married and had Harry. Originally James and Lily wanted Sirius to be their secret keeper though Black told them it would be wiser to choose pettigrew as no one would suspect him, Lily and James agreed and sadly pettigrew told Voldemort who came and killed Lily and James, but couldn’t kill Harry.

They were both very loving parents.
