Author's Notes: Written for mwpp_mischief's Marauder Rare Pairs fest based on this prompt. Alice and James have become something of a guilty pleasure of mine, and it was a pleasure writing them. I wouldn't let the warning for infidelity scare anyone off, especially those who love Alice/Frank, as it's firmly established in the fic where Alice's heart lies. Thanks to L for the beta. The lyrics within the fic and the title both come from Bobby Darin's "Beyond the Sea".
