Who said life ended at death? This is the story of Lily and James after they die. Should be quite sad, quite funny, and quite this-and-that at times, if you know what I mean. I've put Humour and family as the genres, but they might change. R&R!

Here it is. I know it's short, but the chapters will get longer. This is just an introduction. There'll be one for Lily too.
I Win, Mouldy-Shorts
It was not pain unimaginable. He was not filled with regrets that choked him with grief. And his life did not flash before him the way they always said it did.
But, on the other hand, he did not drift through the dark door of death in a hazy bliss. He didn't slip from life in a dreamlike state. And he definitely didn't go willingly.
A flash of green light and he landed hard on the floor. Uncertainly, James blinked a few times and sat up. He was...fine. He was...alive. Voldemort had failed!
'Ha!' James gave a joyous shout, and sprang to his feet, not noticing that he floated a couple of inches from the ground before his feet landed softly on the carpet again.
'HA! I win, you mouldy piece of filth! I win, Mouldy-shorts! I WI-Hey, where's he gone?' for James had just realised that while he had been singing and dancing, Voldemort had swept away up the stairs. Just one word raced through James' head. Lily.
How could he have forgotten about her and Harry? James practically (almost literally, if he had only known it) flew up the stairs and barged into the nursery. A terrible scene met his eyes; framed in the doorway stood Lord Voldemort, pointing his wand directly at Lily, his Lily, his beautiful Lily, his brave Lily, who was even now begging, pleading for Voldemort to take her life instead of Harry's.
'NO!' bellowed James, but no one noticed, 'Don't kill either of them!'
'...Please...take me instead!'
It broke James' heart to hear Lily saying such things, but as much as he wanted to intervene, there seemed to be an invisible barrier that prevented him from walking forwards, from reaching out to help his beloved family.
'Stand aside you silly girl!'
'Don't call her a silly girl!' James growled through gritted teeth. Again, no one paid him any heed. Why wouldn't they listen to him?
'Lily! Lily!' James tried to run forward again, but again he was prevented from reaching Lily.
And then, the two words that shattered his world were spoken in harsh, clear tones.
There we go. The next chapter includes Lily working out she's dead much faster than James. ;)
I felt the little victory dance and then realizing Voldemort was gone was just typicall James. Or typical nice James that is. Typical when he's not a bully. :)
