The Marauders

Hey people!

Being the insane Marauders fan I am, I stumbled upon a song in Marauders playlist on Spotify which really fits them in their Year One at Hogwarts. It’s ‘Home’ by Phillip Phillips.

Here’s a snippet of the song:

Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave (wave) is stringing us along

Settle down, it’ll all be clear
Don’t pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble, it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found.

Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

I imagine that first-year James is singing this to Sirius, Remus and Peter (who I personally think was neglected by his parents because of a much more successful sibling). According to me, James was the only Marauder who was not emotionally or physically scarred when he came to Hogwarts, because of his rather pampered life as the only son of the wealthy inventor of Sleekeazy’s Hair Potion, Fleamont Potter. Sirius was almost certainly neglected by his parents before he came to school because he held his family’s pure-blood mania in contempt. Remus was affected by lycanthropy at age 4, as you may have read in one of my posts. And I’ve already told you the reason why I think this song is also a comfort to Peter.

P.S: You guys better appreciate this post, because you know I’m very busy with exams. I only did this one because an idea popped up in my head when I was doing nothing in Science class.
