If you feel like it - Jily with a dramatic apology :)
Part two V!!!! Love you my darling.
Part One is here
The words were a balm, a soothe to the ache of anxiety that still hummed in her soul.
"I'm sorry for being an idiot."
Lips on her pulse point imprinted the apology into her skin. Hands in her hair angled her head to give him better access to the spots he knew produced an emotion she couldn’t name.
"I'm sorry for being an extremely stupid, thoughtless idiot."
Mouth moving against hers, with softness, with confidence, kiss after kiss. Body pressed against hers, heat flooding lower, an ache of a different kind.
"I'm sorry for getting involved."
Teeth on her bottom lip, dragging it down, allowing his tongue to ask, to invite, hers to play. Hands slipping under clothes, sliding across skin, flesh searing against flesh.
"I'm sorry for using my fists, instead of my words, or at least, my wand."
Knee between her thighs, dragging them apart. Fingers cupping her bottom, lifting and propping until she was trapped between the wall, and him, feet off the ground now, legs around his waist. Trapped, yet she didn't want to leave.
"I'm sorry I worried you."
Lips again. Mouth again. Teeth again. Kiss, suck, bite. Endless repeats. Hands. Fingers. Gripping, clenching. Her head swam. Her body tingled. He was everywhere.
"Let me make it up to you."
"I think," Lily gasped as his hips thrust against hers in the most exquisite way, "you already are."

you cannot tell me that james potter didn't serenade lily evans all the time
it started in third year, when james and lily had a big argument about who's the best in transfiguration
james always thought lily was better even if he always had the best grades
lily was mad, very mad, at james
so jamesie went to the marauders and told them that he needed help
because lily was mad at him
even if their argument started with a joke from james
remus was like "james, eventually, she won't be mad anymore, just let her be"
meanwhile peter and sirius were like "don't listen to remus, james, you need to make her something that will woo her and she will forget about this whole thing"
and james was like "yeah, but what do i exactly need to do?"
"nothing," said remus exasperated, at the same time with sirius who yelled "SERENADE HER"
and that was the moment when operation Lily-Evans-Will-Fall-In-Love-With-James-Potter began.
sirius didn't really think about the idea that much, but when he tried to teach james a song
let's say it didn't go well
james doesn't know how to sing, okay?
anyways sirius encouraged him
fact that resulted in remus almost punching sirius
"PADFOOT I NEED TO SLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT"
"so why can't you sleep moony?"
"BECAUSE OF YOU TWO AND YOUR STUPID SERENADES"
"well it's not our fault you're sensitive"
"do you want to see how sensitive you can be?"
and sirius is lowkey turned on ngl
when james learned the whole song, he decides it's best to sing it that morning in the great hall
sirius and peter are helping him with the instrumental
they transfigure a lamp into a guitar and it still lights up
so james starts singing when lily enters the great hall
and that results in mcgonagall giving him a detention for "those vocals that unfortunately blessed our ears"
lily thinks that james embarrassing himself like that would be a one-time thing
the next serenade takes place in their fourth year, when james wants to invite lily to the yule ball
it results in james being bat-bogey hexed by lily
because we all know she was a queen at that hex
just like ginny
however the serenades stop in fifth year
james doesn't go after lily anymore
the marauders seem to argue a lot more this year
and lily lowkey misses them
until one day when the armors start singing a james-potter-themed song
but not for her
so they're all very surprised when regulus wants to go to the charms classroom with the other slytherins
and the armors starts singing loudly and all the students want to see if james still sings for lily
meanwhile marlene and alice see how jealous lily can be
even if she doesn't admit it
and after the fight with snape she has an awful summer
so when the serenades for her come back in sixth year
she's kind of glad
he's singing little serenades for her between classes
and his voice isn't that annoying anymore
lily starts to love these serenades
but she won't tell anyone that ever
the hogwarts students are already used to james potter singing everywhere
and they aren't mad when one day james wakes the whole castle when singing for lily
the only ones angry are the slytherins, marlene and remus
he's singing from the grounds, and lily wakes up to an angry marlene who's yelling out the window
"SIRIUS WHY ARE YOU HELPING THE BLOODY IDIOT"
but lily goes to the window and realizes she absolutely loves him
so when james shouts at the top of his voice
"EVANS DO YOU WANT TO BE MY GIRLFRIEND?"
she says "YES POTTER I WANT TO BE GIRLFRIEND"
james breaks into a run until he gets to the common room and lily comes down and they're kissing and they're bloody happy
in seventh year the serenades didn't stop, they were just a little bit simpler now
he was singing her between classes, he was charming little singing notes to fly to her dorm when she was upset, he was singing her good morning every day in the great hall
it became their thing
he didn't give up singing when they moved on together either
he was singing her good night, he was singing her every freaking time
when harry was born, lily started to sing to him too, so they had little songs that put harry to sleep
the night before they died was the last night the two of them sang to each other and to their child
