Sirius gets his first tattoo when he’s 15. His friends think he’s a little young, but Sirius believes it’s the right time. He gets a small black pawprint on his chest, a place his parents wouldn’t typically see. A few months later, he gets a small lion on his ankle, then simplified wolf, deer and rat tattoos on the inside of his left forearm. A few days after him and Moony start dating (because he’s been in love with him for years, anyway), he gets a moon tattoo on his hip, and it changes depending on the actual phase of the moon at the time. In seventh year, he loses a bet to James, and Prongs makes him get a tattoo of a magic wand pointing at his ass on a butt cheek. Sirius hates this tattoo, but Remus finds it hilarious. He also has many runes tattooed across his body, some near his collarbones, on his wrist or behind his ear. When he gets out of school, he gets a whole sleeve done, depicting the Whomping Willow and a castle: Hogwarts, his real home.
After Peter’s betrayal, Sirius scars out the rat on his forearm until it’s disfigured and bleeding.
In Azkaban, he carves a heart next to the deer and the wolf, and every day, he checks the moon on his hip, praying for Remus’ safety, wishing to tell him how much he still loves him. He also looks at the lion on his ankle, reminding himself of who he is and where he belongs.
The tattoos are part of him.
As my dad gets older, he’s trying to look a little more intimidating in the hopes that people don’t think of him as an easy target. He was joking about getting meaningless tattoos and suggested random Norse runes on his knuckles.
“Scandinavian imagery is really getting adopted by Neo-Nazis,” I said. “Look as tough as you like, but don’t accidentally channel a skinhead.”
“Oh, good point. What about alchemical symbols? I could get the symbols for all eight planets on my knuckles, with the moon and Pluto on my thumbs.”
“You’ll look like the world’s toughest wizard,” I said.
Things Harry doesn’t know about Draco (or things he pretends not to know)
He claims he takes his coffee black as night. Sugar and cream are stealthily added when Harry’s back is turned.
He’s always wanted to get a tattoo. After the pain of taking the Dark Mark, though, he isn’t sure he’d be able to go through with it. He’s got a stash of potential tattoo designs hidden in the back of his closet, though. Just in case.
As much as he hates his nickname, he is rather fond of ferrets. He wouldn’t mind getting one as a pet.
His favorite color is dark red. Mostly because Potter looks so damn good in it.
He used to put on plays he wrote himself for his parents as a kid. Narcissa definitely did not tape all of them and show each one to Harry the first time he went to the Manor for dinner.
When he was little, he collected newspaper clippings which mentioned Harry’s name, long before he ever thought he would meet him (or date him for that matter). He still has the binder full of them somewhere in the attic.
He told Harry the nightmares stopped awhile ago. They still come back sometimes.
He secretly listens to the top 40 Muggle radio station when Harry is out.
He has been building a steady collection of Harry’s old hoodies and flannels in the back of his closet. He wears them whenever Harry is gone for an extended period of time.
He told Harry he hadn’t started liking him ‘til their fourth year when they were 14 (Take 14, divide that by two, and add one, and then you’d have the truth).
He LOVES collarbones. He could devour Harry’s for every meal of the day.
He tried to write Harry a love poem one time. Harry still thinks it was Ginny who wrote it.
He smiles a lot more now than he used to. That’s not much of a secret, though.
He bought the ring last Wednesday.
He thinks the words “I love you” twice as many times as he says them out loud.
He’s okay. He’s okay.
Today was a rlly shitty day so I wrote this thing to kinda get my mind off of it all. I could definitely use some positive thoughts and prayers to get me through this week. Love you guys xx
