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. The ‘no good’ of which they wrote never denoted Dark magic, but school rule-breaking; similar bravado is evinced by their use of their own nicknames on the map (‘Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs’). The magic used in the map’s creation is advanced and impressive; it includes the Homonculous Charm, enabling the possessor of the map to track the movements of every person in the castle, and it was also enchanted to forever repel (as insultingly as possible) the curiosity of their nemesis, Severus Snape.

Happy Birthday Andrew Garfield! (August 20th 1983)
"Harry, you are so loved, so loved. Mama loves you. Dada loves you. Harry, be safe. Be strong."
When Mary finally was told of Remus’ lycanthropy, she accepted it with the grace and compassion that everyone knew she would. No one except Remus had been afraid she wouldn’t, but he was a worrier and couldn’t bear the idea of losing her. What no one expected was Mary, camped out in the hospital wing the morning after the next full moon. Pomfrey had tried to kick her out earlier in the night, but Mary snuck back into the hospital wing when the matron wasn’t looking. In the wee hours of the morning, the three boys dragged in their unconscious werewolf friend. Mary looked frantic until Peter assured her that this wasn’t uncommon after a full moon (and he tried explaining something about lunar cycles and talked about star charts to why some full moons were worse then other but Mary had a hard time focusing on Peter when Remus looked so rough). Once the nurse had fixed the most of the injuries, the Maurauders left but Mary stayed diligently in the chair beside his cot. When James came to check on Remus later in the day, he found Mary curled up carefully on the cot with his friend’s arm draped over her. He noted to himself that Remus had never looked so happy after a full moon. Then he amended that thought, he had never seen Remus look so happy ever.
I’m very impressed. That suggests that what you fear most of all… is fear itself. This is very wise.

“Tell them whatever you like. But make it quick, Remus. I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for.”
