All three of these were great…Although, I have to say I kind of like the one done by Shosier the best because it gives a little insight into how Fred and George got the Marauder’s Map. Madeyemuggle’s was most like reading a real Harry Potter book to me though. Great work to you all!

Congratulations guys the stories were great!
Shosier I love how you captured the twins attitudes toward Filch and the story was a nice lead into what they do later when they come back and find the Mauraders Map in the filing cabnets.
Madeyedmuggle the stair-surfing stunt was brilliant I loved it! And it made me wonder afterward if the twins ever thought to try that on the moving staircases. Can you imagine them flying off the end of one of those because it moved at the wrong moment???

Wow, these were all really fun to read, as well as credible backstory to the canon. If JKR ever does decide to toss off another book in the Potterverse, it seems like the twins’ wrongdoings at Hogwarts could easily occupy a whole volume by themselves. We can only hope…but meanwhile, these episodes give us more to think about! Thanks to all, and good job!
