History of the Marauders

When James turns eleven, he's allowed to join Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There he met his new friends Sirius, Remus and Peter and they become the Marauders. They dominate the school with all kind of jokes and are very good at bullying Severus Snape, a boy from Slytherin. Meet these guys and take part in their story at Hogwarts.


1. The Letter

James woke up. He looked at his clock and saw that it was only 4 o’clock in the morning. Still tired he let himself fall backwards. Yesterday was a long day. It was his eleventh birthday and a big part of his family came to visit him. You maybe think it was an ordinary birthday like all children would have, but it wasn’t. You see, James wasn’t living with normal people, but with witches and wizards.
Things weren’t just standing on a table, but were floating in the air. The largest cakes were floating in the air and other sweets too. People weren’t just sitting on their chair with their tea on their lap, but the tea was floating beside them and followed them wherever they went.
James just picked a plate full with cake when his parents asked for silence.
“Silence please!” started his dad. “Can I have your attention please?” Slowly it became quite in the living room. “James, come here boy!” James went to his parents and stood between them. 
“Today you’ve become already eleven years and like we all know this is an important age. That’s why we want to take you to Diagon Alley!” James couldn’t believe it. All these years he had waited for this. Then his mother started to talk.
“Yes James, you’ve become a big boy now and that means you can go to Hogwarts!” Everybody began to cheer and suddenly there was a little firework in the room.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” Everybody yelled. From the shock of the firework James dropped his plate, which was caught by his uncle just in time. 
Finally he was eleven years old. The year that you were invited to come to Hogwarts.
He embraced his parents. He never allowed going to Diagon Alley with his parents. He had to wait until he became eleven years old. 
Diagon Alley was a street where you could buy all things a wizard or witch needed.

The party went on ‘till late and James got a lot of presents. One was from his uncle. He came in with something big which was covered by a big white cloth. 
“Here you go boy, be careful with her.” he said when he handed it over. “Her name is Athena.”
James pulled of the cloth and there was a big white owl in the cage. She looks beautiful, James thought. She screeched loudly when she saw the light room. Then she saw James and screeched again, but less loud, like she said hello to him.
Then it was time to say goodbye to his family and the Potter family went to bed.

James looked on his clock again. It was a quarter to six now and the sun began to shine already.
He jumped out of bed and dressed quickly. Today was the day he probably get his invitation to Hogwarts, which included the supplies list.
While he ran down of the stairs he imagined what he needed to buy. Of course he needed a wand and a robe. He already had an animal, the owl he got from his uncle. Every student at Hogwarts was allowed to have an owl, cat or toad. Most students bought an owl, because it can deliver you post, but some people bought a cat or toad.
Now he thought about animals, James almost forgot that Athena probably wants to be fed too. He ran back to room. Athena screeched when he came in, like she wanted to say she was hungry. He opened the window and the cage. Athena flew straight outside and screeched again. She looks beautiful with the sunlight on her, James thought. After he refreshed her water he went back downstairs to make some breakfast. Unfortunately children below seventeen weren’t allowed to use magic outside Hogwarts. This law was made to prohibit under-aged wizards or witches to use magic in the presence of Muggles or Muggle-inhabited areas. Now you probably wonder what a Muggle is. A Muggle is just a person who lacks any sort of magical ability and was not born into the magical world. They also don’t have any magical blood.
Just when James set the table for breakfast he heard something tapping on the window. And there it was, where James waited for all those years. A brown owl sat outside before the window, with a white envelope with a red seal on it.
James ran, yelling at his parents, to the front door. “Mum! Dad! The letter! The letter’s arrived!”
He run outside and took the letter from the owl’s mouth. Straight after that it flew away.
Once inside the living room he tore the seal open. His parents came, half asleep, into the living room and sat beside James.
“Quick, read it.” his mum said.
James took out the letter and read:

Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore

James looked at the supplies list. Three cloaks, one hat, one pair of protective gloves, one winter cloak, eight books, a wand, a cauldron, a set of phials, a telescope and brass scales. 
Then James looked full of proud to his parents.
“I’m going to Hogwarts!” he yelled.
“Congratulations, my boy.” his mother said when she gave him a kiss on his forehead. 
“Next week we’re going to Diagon Alley. As I can see you need to buy a lot.” his father said giggly.
James never felt so happy. Finally he could learn magic at Hogwarts!
