Lily Evans was the mother of Harry Potter in the Harry Potter series.


She married James Potter to become Lily Potter, not to be confused with her granddaughter of the same name.


Some fans identify this as Snape and Hermione even though on the artist's WIKTT account it is identified as Snape and Lily Evans. Because not all Harry Potter fan art is photo realistic, fans sometimes confuse Hermione with Lily (and vice versa), particularly where they are depicted in intimate situations with Snape. Artist: Marquise

Most fanfiction featuring Lily involves her eventual relationship with James Potter during her Hogwarts years. She is also often paired with Severus Snape, who was canonically in love with her for many years. She has also been shipped with Sirius Black and Remus Lupin. In threesome pairings, she is often paired with the above characters (for example Lily/Remus/Severus and Lily/Remus/Sirius).
