All four of the Marauders grinned as they read the list given to them by Gideon and Fabian Prewett on the way home from their seventh year at Hogwarts, even Lily laughed at the ones not involving her.
"Those were a good seven years," James thought, reminiscing, "and I hope that we will have many more to come."
-A/N: For my purposes, Gideon and Fabian are very similar to Fred and George, and a year younger than the Marauders
