The Marauders were definitely McGonagall's favorite students, especially James. Dude may have been a bit arrogant, but he was brilliant at the two things McGonagall loved most - Quidditch and Transfiguration.
I personally adore the marauders! I like to imagine Fred and George started a fan club. If so how can I join?<--- I love the Marauders! They are awesome, and I'd perform a blood sacrifice just to meet the characters.
