"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so that you’ll eventually learn to trust no one but yourself and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Due to his charm, wit and good looks, James has easily made his name known among the students as one of the most popular people at Hogwarts. His amazing Quidditch skills don’t hurt his reputation either; they’re more of an added bonus to make all the girls swoon when he tries to impress them. All the girls except the one that actually mattered. Lily Evans. Ever since he could remember, James has always had his eyes on Lily but she never gave him the time of day. He’s always trying to get her attention, still playing around with the Snitch and keeping up his habit of ruffling his hair to look like he just got off his broom, but even without Snivellus by her side, she barely pays him any attention.
James is very intelligent despite not being the type of person to show it. He likes to use his brains to come up with fun pranks instead of answers to a test. Most of the time, he has Remus doing his coursework for him while he goes off with Sirius to cause trouble, mostly for Snape ever since he called Lily a mudblood last year. He’s a caring person when it comes to his friends and people he likes, and is always standing up for those getting picked on by Slytherins.
After finding out that Remus was a werewolf, James and the other Marauders had worked hard on trying to become Animagi so they can be with Remus when he changes on the full moon. By the time they were in fifth year, the three had successfully become unregistered Animagi. James landed the nickname Prong amongst his friends because of his ability to turn into a stag.
