SIRIUS’S BOGGART IS JAMES POTTER APPEARING AND BLAMING HIM FOR EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED AND SOMETIMES WHEN SIRIUS WAS ALONE AT GRIMMAULD PLACE HE WOULD DELIBERATELY LET THE BOGGART OUT JUST TO HEAR HIS BEST FRIEND’S VOICE AGAIN
‘There’s no use crying about it.’ This line was practically Sirius Black’s catchphrase and he used it in every situation. Even if the person he was 'comforting’ didn’t have a single tear in their eyes, he would shrug his shoulders and with a smirk he would say; 'There’s no use crying about it.’
When Lily failed to understand Transfiguration. When Peter stubbed his toe. When Remus got the answer wrong in class. When Marlene had broken up with her first boyfriend he showed no sympathy. When Lily rejected James. When Mary had mud all down her skirt from sitting on the grass. When Dorcas had written her Charms essay on the wrong thing. When James broke three ribs and his leg in Quidditch. When Marlene accidentally hit Flitwick with a book and got a weeks worth of detentions. When Mary was too full for desert. When Lily found out she had gotten so drunk the night before she threw up on James. When Remus tripped up over his own feet walking to History of Magic. When Dorcas and Mary’s potion blew up in their faces. When Peter fell down the last three steps. When James had a bad practice and was just so frustrated with himself. When Lily would get horrible letters from Petunia and he found her crying by the fire. “Crying won’t make it better.” He would say.
However, on the night he lost everything, he sat in his Azakaban cell crying until his body hurt. After what seemed like days he sat up and wiped his tears away with a shaky hand. “There’s no use crying about it.” He mumbled to himself. Crying wasn’t going to fix anything. Crying wasn’t going to bring James and Lily back. Crying wasn’t going to give Harry a proper home. Crying wasn’t going to make Remus believe him. Crying wasn’t going to make Peter pay for what he had done. “There’s no use crying about it.” He said again before bursting into tears.
In the middle of the night a loud crash of lightning woke the kids of the Gryffindor Common room. Everyone thought it was just a storm and went back to bed. The next morning, on one of the tables in the middle of the common room sets a hammer. As the students slowly awake they become interested with this strange object. They soon realise that it could not be moved. Now do you really think four incredible mischief makers and a fiery red head can just leave this alone? Of course not…
James struts up to the hammer and has the first attempt. He tries with all his strength to lift or move it.
James fails. Sirius as bold as ever moved James confidently aside and stood in front of the hammer.
Sirius pulls with all his strength and soon begins to realise James was not exaggerating upon it’s difficulty.
But of course Sirius Black aka Mr. Stubborn wasn’t going to give up that easily…
James was loving it and couldn’t help tease. At least they both failed.
James: Yeah but it’s funnier because you were so sure you could do it.
Sirius was determined, he tries again. Like he was going to let James take the piss.
Now frustrated Sirius realised the inevitable. IT’S RIGGED. Ha maybe Peter placed it there to fool them.

“For the first time ever, I had friends, three great friends… I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But […] they didn’t desert me at all. Instead, they did something for me that would make my transformations not only bearable, but the best times of my life. They became Animagi.”
