The Marauder’s Map is lasting testimony to the advanced magical ability of the four friends who included Harry Potter’s father, godfather and favourite teacher. The map they created during their time at Hogwarts appears to be a blank piece of parchment unless activated by the phrase: I solemnly swear that I am up to no good, a phrase that, in the case of three of the four makers, should be understood as a joke.

All my life.

  • The fact that Petunia sent Dumbledore a letter asking to go to Hogwarts
  • James, Sirius, Severus, and Lily on the…
