Your Father’s Son

Request: Hi, may I please ask a request? Its a bit angsty tho. It takes place in OOtP, where Sirius talks to Harry by floo and Sirius says “You’re less like your father than I thought”. What if Harry reacted differently? What if he became seriously (no pun intended) upset? And Sirius wonders to Remus why Harry’s avoiding him and Remus finds out what he said and he flips out and Sirius realizes he f’d up and tries to apologize and they have a godfather/godson bonding. I hope this is ok :)

Warnings:  You might cry, this is very bittersweet.  The fandom needs more Sirius/Harry moments <3

Author’s Note:  I hope you feel the same things while reading this as I did while writing it, because it’s one of my favorite things I’ve done.  

“Alright, alright, I’ve got the point,” said Sirius.  He looked most displeased.  “Just an idea, thought you might like to get together—”

 “I would, I just don’t want you chucked back in Azkaban!” said Harry.

 There was a pause in which Sirius looked out from the fire at Harry, a crease between his sunken eyes.

 “You’re less like your father than I thought,” he said finally, a definite coolness in his voice.  “The risk would’ve been what made it fun for James.” 

–Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, pages 304-305.

Hermione gasped to Harry’s left and Harry felt color rising to his cheeks at Sirius’s brash comment. He narrowed his eyes at Sirius, who stared back from the flames with equal determination.  Beneath his anger at what his godfather had just said, Harry felt more hurt than anything and was shocked that Sirius would deal him what he knew was a very low blow.  

“Yeah?” he asked quietly, challengingly, and he heard Hermione murmur something hurriedly to Ron before the two of them got up and left the vicinity.  

Sirius’s eyes flickered away from Harry’s for a split second before he made eye contact again and saw that Harry was daring Sirius to defend himself.  

“James hated being separated from his friends, is all.”

“And I don’t, is that it?” said Harry coldly, trying to fight back the lump rising in his throat. “Well, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve got my two best mates with me, thanks.”

With that, Harry followed Ron and Hermione’s lead and left the fireplace.  He didn’t wait to see if Sirius stuck around at all, but a soft pop in the hearth gave him his answer.

“Yeah. I’m fine”
“You seem pretty down lately", Ginny persisted.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Harry turned out to be my favorite character from the Harry Potter books. It took me ten years and a lot of readings to want to explore the main character as fanartist. I’m so glad all was well in the end. He deserves it. 

Also, the last two panels are from my favorite canon Hinny scene. We might have this idea Harry felt in love with Ginny in his sixth year, but I’m pretty sure that happened in this scene from Order of the Phoenix (Chapter: Careers Advice). She talked to him when he was feeling bad and she made him feel hopeful.

“So, after ‘E it’s ‘A’ for ‘Acceptable’”.
“Then you get ‘P’ for ‘Poor’ and ‘D’ for ‘Dreadful’”
“And then ‘T’”
“’T’? What on earth does ‘T’ stand for?”

One of my favourite scenes from OoTP (which I was reading again some weeks ago, so I got nostalgic)
