Tempting Fate || Marauder's Era ||
"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!
