Epithalamium Series

The Epithalamium series of stories chronicles the life of Minerva McGonagall and her relationship with Albus Dumbledore. It spans the years between 1925 and 1999, following her through her seventh year at Hogwarts, Auror training and involvement in the global wizarding war, her teaching career, and the First and Second Wizarding Wars.

I’ve posted a full character list, basic genealogy, and a timeline for the series on this blog. For more information about the series, including extended character biographies, visit the HP Fanon Wiki. You can also find a full genealogy for the series at Family Echo. For the more visual among you, I’ve created Pinterest boards for Epithalamium and Till A’ the Seas Gang Dry. If you’re a Spotify user, you can also listen to several Spotify playlists of music from the 1940s and 1950s, as well as some of the Scottish and classical music mentioned in the series.
