The Marauders Map: The mischief is alive in everyone


Everyone has uttered the phrase to open the Marauders Map at least once in their life. So we’re going to talk about those lovely boys who made it.

The Marauders Map helped Harry and his friends get through quite a lot of obstacles while they were at school. But it doesn’t just help you sneak out. Created by James Potter, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew, the map represents the friendship that the four had while at Hogwarts.

While we don’t get to see a lot of the Marauders in the series, their love for one another (with the exception of Peter Pettigrew) is made very clear through things like the map. “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” sounds like a bunch of boys rough-housing but if you really look at it, the trick to opening the map shows the true bond these friends had.

They would get into so much trouble together and run around Hogwarts being the big dogs on campus but they never let that separate them (again, not including Peter Pettigrew. He’s dead to us all).

Friendship is important in this series. Your family may not always be there for you but your friends will be. James always had Sirius and Remus to count on and, when they needed to be there for his son, they pulled together and took care of Harry.

If only we could have seen more of James, Sirius, and Remus together in the series! What trouble we could have gotten into.

Next: Harry Potter maybe doesn’t know how to deal with other people

Without them, how would we have managed our mischief? They’re great characters and there is nothing more that we’d like to see other than a Marauders series. So get on that J.K Rowling! Bring back our boys.
