It’s not difficult to imagine the pressure he had to be under, knowing that so much duty and obligation rested on his shoulders. If Sirius was expected to know how to write in perfect cursive, memorize pureblood lineage, and have perfect table manners, you can bet James was too. He may have been raised in a more loving and supportive environment, but the expectation was still there.
