🦁 ATYD Marauders Cross-stitch πŸ¦

I’m back with more cross-stitch! This week,with all the buzz surrounding it recently, I decided to hop on the bandwagon and do a peice inspired by the All The Young Dudes Marauders fanfic. Honestly, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever read on Archive Of Our Own and if you’re a fan of fanfiction and the Marauders, I’d highly recommend it.

I have so much I could say about these characters; so much love for all of them. Remus Lupin was always one of my favourite charatcers reading the Harry Potter series, but I love how the fandom have taken his character and run with it. Sirius and James are just iconic (we don’t talk about Peter…). I tried to capture the 70s rock and roll/rebel teen wizards in a red and gold colour scheme and oh my god was it fun to make.

From left to right, we have:

See the source image
  • James looking fancy
  • Sirius with messy hair (possibly coming out a bit shorter than I intended, but Sirius Black is a tiny punk who thinks he’s tall and that’s ahill I will die on)
  • Tall Boi TM Remus with the marauders map
  • Peter wearing shorts and a big Gryfindor hat because he is A Child.
  • One of Remus’ letter to Grant (who is 1000% canon)
  • An attempt at recreating T Rex’s Electric Warrior album cover – I’m proud of it but it was VERY HARD! All The Young Dudes rekindled my love for the band and this album has some absolute bangers on it. I think my family are sick of me dancing to Get It On…
  • The greenhouses at Hogwarts
  • Hogwarts
  • A record player – I love how this turned out
  • THE MOOOOOOONNNNN
  • And quite possibly my favourite album of all time: a bad recreation of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars by David Bowie. This – I just love it so much. Even though my love of it was certainly decreased by how flipping HARD it was to freestyle stitch.

I don’t know if anyone’s going to undertand these references, but I had a lot of fun making it (as I’m sure you can tell). Whose your favourite Marauder? Have you read All The Young Dudes? Got any recommedations for characters or quotes I should try next? Let me know in the comments!

I’m a teenager (and a Hufflepuff) from Manchester. I like oversized jumpers, music that isn't on the radio anymore and books. Pretty much any book I can get my hands on but my favourites are Young Adult, fantasy and science fiction. One day, I decided to share some of my opinions on some great - and not so great - books to people around the world. And here it is! I really enjoy it and I hope you do too. The aim is hundreds and thousands of book reviews (see what I did there?) but I’m not quite up to that. Yet.

      1. Electric dancer is such a bop!! I haven’t listened to the slider album that many times but telegram Sam is greatttt – it sounded like something the talking heads would do? Who are also underrated 😎

      1. Urg yes they’re the worst. I also hate the ones with bad grammar (it aounds so snotty but I can’t focus on the story if there’s no full stops). Rest assured, it’s complete and has a really quality writing style πŸ™‚

      2. Ha! I think the same thingβ€”if I’m writing and make a punctuation typo, it instantly shoots me back to bad fanfic. But that’s reassuring about the Marauders one!
