The Marauders map is a wonderful part of the Harry Potter series. So where would you go if you got your own map that you could use just like Harry?

Part of what is great about the Harry Potter series is the magic elements we can imagine having in our own lives. Like the Marauders map, for example. It is an object that falls into the hands of Harry and his friends that Wormtail, Moony, Padfoot, and Prongs created during their time at Hogwarts.

The Marauders, who were later revealed to be James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew, were the mischief makers at Hogwarts long before Harry and his friends every stepped foot there. So the map and its abilities were used for very different reason than what Harry, Ron, and Hermione typically use it for.

That being said, we can imagine what we would use it for in today’s world. Friends tell you they’re not going out but you think they are anyway? Use the map and see if they’re lying. Trying to go to a concert but don’t want your mom and dad to see you leave? Utter “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good” and get on your merry way.

No matter what, you’re not really doing the best thing with the map because you’re always trying to do something a little wrong but still, you’re using the map for your own version of fun and that’ what James, Peter, Sirius, and Remus would have wanted.
