Bio:

TIDALDRAGON.


Howdy! I'm Kevin, a proud Gryfflepuff and OG staffer (retired) and member of HPFT. I'm a writer of all things Harry Potter running the gamut of immediate post-Founders fics through Next-Gen and angst to fluff (but mostly angst) with a couple of murder mysteries tossed in for fun. You'll find that I'm also a passionate author of and advocate for SeekerBell™ (Harry Potter/Katie Bell).

Evolution

Splendid banner by elenia @ TDA.

 

From virtually the moment they met, James Potter and Lily Evans were at odds. He was a hex-happy prankster with talent comparable only to his loyalty and arrogance. She was a clever student with a kind heart, but little patience for rule-breaking. This is the story of how two apparent opposites came to realize they were, in reality, a perfect fit.
