James and Lily

When they were 11

He made loud fart noises in the corridor to amuse his friends. 

She rolled her eyes and kept walking.

When they were 12

He would have water fights in the common room.

She scowled as she dodged the enchanted water balloon.

He would shout out answers over her in class.

She ignored him and got top marks anyway.

When they were 13

He and his friends filled the great hall with jelly as a joke.

She shouted when a leftover piece fell on her head the next day.

He charmed balls of paper to fly at her head.

She hexed him.

When they were 14

He batted his eyelashes and got an extension on his homework.

She scolded him for it after.

He set loose the blast ended skrewts.

She spent her lunch helping round them all up.

He started to call her stupid nicknames.

She shot back with stupider insults.

When they were 15

He charmed off a boys hair one day.

She helped the boy figure out how to grow it back.

He harassed her in the corridor with annoying proposals.

She thought she hated him.

He got caught by the Greenhouses smoking with his friend.

She and Remus monitored his detention. She asked Remus why he was so annoying, he said he was more than the arrogant show he put on.

He pulled down Severus’ trousers in front of a crowd of people.

She defended someone who wasn’t a good person.

He followed her around trying to apologise.

She thought maybe Remus was right.

When they were 16

He made his stationary fly around the classroom to amuse people.

She grinned and told him to stop.

He flooded the fourth floor.

She cursed him as she helped get rid of the water.

He gave a bar of chocolate to a crying first year.

She thought maybe he wasn’t all that bad.

He carried his friend’s books when he was feeling ill.

She thought he was actually quite nice.

He helped her with difficult homework.

She smiled and said thank you.

He made conversation as they walked to class together.

She was shocked when she realised she was friends with him.

When they were 17

He wrote to her over the holidays.

She replied.

He threw a big celebration party in the common room.

She had a fun time with her friends dancing and drinking until dawn.

He loved the way she rolled her eyes at him.

She loved the way the combed his fingers through his hair unconsciously.

He went home for the summer realising that maybe she might feel the same way.

She realised she had fallen for someone she thought she hated.

He came back to school as Head Boy.

She came back as Head Girl.

He grew up and took the responsibility seriously.

She felt her chest swell as she watched him grow.

He asked if she wanted to go out. That maybe after all this time…

She realised that the answer had always been yes.

When they were 18

He loved the way her hair fell around her shoulders, the way she smiled when he touched her and they way she would laugh as she kissed him.

She loved the way he slung his arm over her whenever he stood next to her, they way he would grin when he made eye contact and the way the played with her hair as she dozed next to him.

He made the suits of armour tell jokes when someone walked past.

She giggled and realised some things never change.

He started to prepare for a world that was getting darker every day.

She started to prepare for a world that scared her a little.

He ended the school year with a bang, literally. He and his friends threw a farewell party.

She spent the night laughing and crying, promising everyone that it wasn’t really goodbye.

He left school, bought a flat, and began to train to fight a war he was too young to fight in.

She left school, moved into his flat, and began to train for a war she was determined to win.

He loved her and he told her every day.

She loved him and would never let him forget it.

When they were 19

He would come home dirty and bruised.

She would return scratched and messy.

He would heal her wounds and hold her close.

She would mend his cuts and kiss him gently.

He would fight like there was no tomorrow.

She would attack like it was the only defence.

He was frightened.

She was worried.

He found comfort in her.

She found solace in him.

He realised he couldn’t live without her.

She realised he kept her going.

He said ‘marry me’.

She said ‘only if you marry me first’.

He married a girl he had loved since he was 11.

She married a boy she had never hated.

When they were 20

He still had a war to fight in.

She still had to bring justice to her world.

He worried when he heard her throwing up one morning.

She worried when he joked she might be pregnant.

He knew there would be day when he would make an unfunny joke.

She realised today was that day.

He had to shift his world to make room for a baby.

She had to prepare for a world with more people to love in it.

He was as excited as could be.

She was always smiling despite it all.

He wanted to name the baby Harold.

She like Barry.

He decided to compromise.

She agreed on Harry.

He couldn’t stop shaking when they baby was born.

She couldn’t stop cradling her son.

He and his friends stayed up four nights in a row with the baby, just to play with him.

She had her friends over for a weekend, just to coo over him.

He was told his friends couldn’t come any more. But it kept his child safe.

She was heartbroken people could come to visit, but it kept her family whole.

When they were 21

He enjoyed the quiet days with his wife.

She enjoyed the long mornings with her husband.

He enjoyed practising magic with (sometimes on) his son.

She enjoyed pretending not to notice, or outdoing him on a particularly pretty spell.

He was scared, but he loved her and Harry.

She was terrified, but he and Harry mattered more.

He decided to celebrate 1 year old in style.

She baked a truly magnificent cake.

He decorated the house.

She decorated her son. 

He smiled as a small fawn blew out his candles.

She laughed as her husband transformed to match his son.

He loved her more than ever.

She loved him more than she could say.

He carved pumpkins.

She hung fairy lights.

He made puffs of smoke come out the end of his wand.

She heard the door open.

He threw his child in to her arms.

She ran up the stairs.

He looked for his discarded wand.

She barricaded the door.

He dropped like a marionette who’s string were cut.

She refused to step aside.

He was dead.

She fell just like her husband.

They loved Harry.

They died for their son.

but he lived.

Sirius and Harry were in charge of candles.

Sirius Black's Tattoos

When Sirius was sixteen, he and James went to a tattoo parlor in knockturn ally, a place that didn’t ask questions, and Sirius got a black sheep tattooed.
It might have been silly, but he was drunk, just been disowned and James was seventeen with an apperating license. He still has it, he and Tonks would make puns about being “black sheeps” of the family.

On the day that Remus came back from a mission for the order, Sirius had forgotten that it had been the full moon. Remus came back with new scars, a big one across his neck that could have killed him. Sirius felt awful, Remus brushed it off. So Sirius got a moon tattoo that changed with the phases of the moon. He never told anyone, but even when he was in prison, he would cry every full moon.

On the day of Lily and James’ wedding, Peter and Sirius went to get Sirius another tattoo. It was a doe and a stag, with white lilies. It was the biggest tattoo he’s ever gotten, but he smiled whenever he saw it.
When Lily saw it, she called him an idiot that hugged him, kissing him on the cheek.
The day they died, Sirius watched as the lilies died on his skin.

When Harry was born, Sirius got the date, time (to the second) and year Harry was born, with a baby stag underneath, charmed to grow with Harry (which a) cost a lot, and b) Sirius swore he would get a similar one for the next potter that roles around)

Sirius got a lot of tattoos. Not all of them had meaning, but some honorable mentions include:
- A heart that Lily would always draw on his wrist. Lily would colour in when they had coffee.
- Remus’ kiss mark. Moony was drunk, Alice had lipstick, he kissed Sirius’ parchment. Sirius kept it, never showed that tattoo to anyone.
- James’ horrible handwriting. When they were working on the Marauders Map, he had a note book that he always wrote in. James had written Messers Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs in messy, smudged, left handed scroll.

Remus only ever got one tattoo. It was a note that Sirius left when he went after Harry. Remus found it after the department of mysteries battle. It said:
Moons,
I’m going after Harry
I know it stupid, but he’s what I have left
I’ll be fine. But if I’m not, make sure you know it’s not your fault. Stop blaming yourself.
Don’t worry, Moony.
- Pads

He got the entire thing tattooed on his ribcage, where there wasn’t any scars. Along with a stag head that James drew in fifth year. Tonks never questioned it. She never commented on the fact that Remus had a picture of him and Sirius kissing. She never cared.
He did.
