“Sirius I’m gonna push you back,” said James as he gathered his force. His hand were as strong as Sirius remembered them to be. James always had a strong grip, especially over Sirius. All the times he had to hold him back, he had gotten stronger without even intending to, controlling Sirius was a hard job to do.
Sirius knew that voice all too well and she was angry, he had made Lily angry, it had been too long since he had done that.
“Sirius Orion Black! You did not break out of Azkaban and stayed in that goddamned house the past year just to die at the hands of Bellatrix. You are going back.”
“You heard the woman,” added James, he was still holding onto Sirius like he was his lifeline and tried to push him back but Sirius let himself go so that James would feel all his weight.
“I don’t want to,” he began. “I have been hearing you ever since I got into the room Prongs, you were calling me. Now you want me to leave?”
“That wasn’t me Pads,” objected James. “They were trying to lure you here, that wasn’t me. I’m sending you back to my son and Moony.”
“But I want to stay here,” shouted Sirius. “I want to stay here with you two. Don’t you understand? I had died the day you did.”
“What about Remus you asshole? What about Harry for Merlin’s sake?” yelled Lily, she was so angry Sirius could feel her anger radiating off of her. “You will go back Sirius, you will and you will look after my son.”
“I got out of Azkaban and fell in the prison of my own mind,” he said. “I just want to stay with y–”
“No,” replied James firmly, his hands were digging through Sirius’ skin. “Your name will be cleared after this, can’t you see that? Merlin Pads, sometimes you are such an idiot. My son, your godson might I remind you, need you, you prat.”
“Don’t leave Remus alone on full moons Sirius,” added Lily softly, Sirius knew she was crying but he tried to fight back, he didn’t want to go back to the hell he was living when he could stay here and be with James and Lily. “Don’t leave Harry alone.”
“I’m pushing you back whether you like it or not Pads, please tell Harry we love him,” he said and with that Sirius found himself right back where he left off, Harry was staring at the veil like he had seen the worst thing, his eyes shining like Lily’s did whenever she was about to cry and Remus holding him as if Harry was everything that kept him alive.
A smile broke across Sirius’ face as he saw what he came back for. James and Lily were right as they were all the time, Sirius just didn’t learn.
James who had saved his life hundreds of times had saved his life yet again and Sirius only had one thing on his mind he had to do before he forgot.
“James and Lily made me swear I would tell you how much they loved you Harry.”
Sirius felt the same set of hands hug him as strongly as James had held him a few moments ago and realised what they meant when Harry pulled back and he saw the relief in Remus’ eyes. He wasn’t done here just yet.
This is the fic I wrote for that headcanon I wrote yesterday! It’s not exactly the same but I made it a thing! I did as much research about mutism and traumatic mutism so I hope I wrote about it accurately…
Lance knew he was pushing it. He could tell by the twitch of
Keith’s hand and the way his shoulders tensed every time Lance so much as
opened his mouth to breathe. He was being too loud again but he couldn’t help
it. As fucked up as it was, he would prefer annoying others by being too loud
than never speaking at all.
