Title: Tempting Fate || Marauder’s Era
Summary: “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waiting for, it is a thing to be achieved.” - William Jennings Bryan
Contrary to popular belief, James Potter is not the only heir to the Potter fortune. Nor is Petunia Dursley née Evans the only blood relative to Harry.
Meet Edmund Potter. Older brother to the infamous James Potter. Proud Gryffindor. Potions master. Marauder’s number one prank consultant.
Was it mentioned that Edmund is a seer? Unlike Trelawney, however, he actually remembers his premonitions.
James Potter and his brother were as close as can be. It was a rare sight to see one without the other outside of class, and it was clear that Edmund had earned his place as the “Fifth” Marauder.
Edmund Potter made it his duty to protect James above all else from a young age. When the unthinkable happens and Edmund has a vision about James’ upcoming death, what’s a brother to do? Why, attempt to change the future, of course!

Title: Morality || Maurader’s Era
Arabella Blakely has been brought up to believe that being a Pureblood was all that mattered. Her parents raised her to think that she is better than everyone simply because her blood is pure, and anyone with “tainted” blood is scum.
Even at a young age, she doubted her parents’ beliefs, wondering to herself why being a Pureblood mattered. In her eyes, every witch or wizard is the same. Some might be more skilled than others, but they can all perform the same magic. They all bleed the same color. They all feel the same feelings. She bit her tongue, though, not wanting conflict in her family.
Entering her first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Arabella had no doubt in her mind that she was destined to be in Slytherin house. However, she struggled to get along with her fellow housemates simply because she didn’t agree with their views- which were her parents’ views as well. She began to argue with her housemates tooth and nail, being the stubborn hot-head that she was.
As Arabella learned that the world wasn’t always so black and white, she befriended people she knew her parents wouldn’t approve of out of spite, but learned quickly that she could trust them, despite what her parents made her believe. Her new friends shared her beliefs, and she soon discovered that she must leave behind her family so to speak if she was to be happy, for she knew she could never be happy living under their rules.
Follow Arabella on her journey as she learns how to stand up for what she believes in and her place in the wizarding world.
