AN: So here is yet another story about how the Weasley twins discover who the Marauders are. I know that you are all going, why aren't you updating your other fic? Why spend time on this? Well I wanted to do something totally my own and always wanted to do one of these stories, so here it is enjoy!

Disclaimer: I own nothing! these characters belong to JKR not me!

EDIT 8/15: due to some of the revolting spelling and grammar mistakes in this story i am editing it. The actual story will not change, just the typos and other mistakes.


In the hustle and bustle of the Gryffindor common room two normally energetic first years sat huddled in a corner bent over a blank bit of parchment.

"What do we do with it?" One of the boys asked his twin brother.

"Dunno Fred. Try tapping it with your wand." George suggested.

"We did. Like five times." Fred sighed. "I don't possibly see how this is dangerous. Total waste of a dungbomb."

"It has to be something! Why else would Filch take it?" George asked looking frustrated.

"Maybe he got bored? How would I know?"

"Why don't we ask Charlie? He might know." George said. Charlie did get annoyed by his twin brothers, and was unlikely to help them. However he was a seventh year and he might have a few ideas.

"Do you think he'd help?" Fred asked skeptically.

"Worth a shot. Oi! Charlie!" George yelled across the common room to his brother that was currently rather busy with a girl.

Charlie resurfaced for a moment and looked for who called him when he saw the twins waving he rolled his eyes. "Whatever you're going to ask, no." He replied and went back to his friend.

"Well that helped." Fred rolled his eyes. "Okay let me think, reveal your secrets!" He said tapping the paper with his wand. Nothing.

"Uh, I George Weasley demand you tell me what you are!" George tried with a tap. This time writing began to flow across the paper saying,

"Mr. Moony would like to say that Mr. Weasley is being rather rude and it is unkind to demand."

"Mr Prongs would like to tell Mr. Moony that rudeness can be fun and congratulates Mr. Weasley for infuriating Mr. Moony."

"Mr Padfoot would like to know if Mr. Weasley is a prankster? If so try saying I solemnly swear I am up too no good."

"Mr Wormtail agrees with Mr. Padfoot."

"Mr. Moony is surrounded by idiots."

"Wow. I made it work! Hah!" George said rubbing it in. "And you said it was only parchment!"

"Oh shut up lets try what the Mr. Padfoot guy said. I solemnly swear I am up to no good." Fred said as he tapped the parchment.

Once again words flowed from the tip of his wand to say,

Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs

Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief-Makers are proud to present

THE MARAUDER'S MAP

Across the surface of the parchment small dots moved through what appeared to be the interior and grounds of Hogwarts school. Each dot was labeled in minute handwriting as a person. Fred watched as Oliver Wood played out on the Quidditch pitch. And Cedric Diggory was surrounded by a group of girls in the Hufflepuff common room. George could see Percy strutting about the castle occasionally stopping to talk to someone. He saw Dumbledore pacing around his study and every other inhabitant of Hogwarts School.

"Wow." Fred breathed as he watched a kid fall into a suit of armor. "This is amazing. Wait, what's that hallway? I've never seen it before?" He asked pointing at said hallway.

"Or that one." George agreed spotting another. "Wait you don't thinkā€¦"

"That these are secret passages? I think they are brother." Fred said with a large grin.

"Whoever Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs are we sure do owe them a lot."

"You know I think we ought to find out." George said.

"Fine. We'll to ask the teachers tomorrow. They have the best chance of knowing."


AN: So what do you think? Totally awful? i hopenot. I will probably post the other chapters within the next few days so I won't drag it out. PLEASE review!
