History of the Marauders

Companion to Harry Potter and the Marauding Champions

Hello readers. I decided it was time to share with you all the companion I wrote to keep the story straight. It contains all the known generations of Marauders, their forms, their inventions and what fate of the curse they suffered. Along with the identities of known rivals. I was going to wait until after I wrote the next chapter, but my patrons jsut have not been voting for Marauding champions so I don't foresee it getting an update unless more of you start supporting me.

In the meantime I reduced the price down to ONE DOLLAR per month. There are 1300 people following this story. If every single one of you subscribed for ONE DOLLAR each I could semi retire and churn out a chapter every single weekday. Make that happen.

Now, onto the complete, as of now, history of the Marauders. Suggestions for additions or improvements are appreciated.

Quick reminder:

- 1 Marauder is doomed to die by their own hand.

- 1 Marauder is doomed to cause the death of another.

- 1 Marauder is doomed to be estranged from the rest.

- 1 Marauder is doomed to suffer for a crime they did not commit.

- 1 of the Rivals is destined to marry one of the Marauders.

- Each generation has an individual invention and collaborate on creating a grand invention or work.

- Each generation of Marauders is composed of 3 animagi and 1 half-breed or otherwise blood-cursed individual (werewolf, maladictus, etc).

Consider supporting mre, NonsensicalRants, as a patron for ONE DOLLAR per month. So I can write full time and live off of the proceeds, and you all can get much more content from me. If I don't achieve this goal my July I will be quitting fanfiction forever. Not a threat, just the reality of things.
