The common room was so quiet with everyone gone, the only
sound in the room was the crackling fire that kept the cold dungeon warm. I
pull the green blanket around my body tighter and shift so that I could see the
words on the page even better underneath the faint yellow glow of the lamp. It
was interrupted by three rapid knocks at the door and I sigh before getting up
and heading to answer the door. I figured that it was a drunk Slytherin who
forgot the password or one of my friends from the other houses coming to check
on me. When I opened the door, I was surprised to see Sirius Black standing on
the other side, I had to do a double take to make sure that it wasn’t his
“What are you doing here?” He was dressed in a tuxedo and
for once his mane of black hair was combed back. “You clean up nice Black.”
“Why aren’t you at the ball?” He completely ignores my
question and takes a cautious step into the dungeon before walking in
completely and I roll my eyes before following him down the steps to where the
sofas were located.
“I enjoy my peace,” was my snarky reply and he stopped suddenly,
causing me to collide with his back. He spins around so fast that I had to take
a step back to put some distance between us.
“I waited and waited but you never showed.”
I was so confused about this whole conversation that all I
could do was stare at him with my mouth open in shock, the only sound coming
out was this little noise from the back of my throat. He was too close now and
I found myself getting lost in the musky scent of his cologne. He seems to
realize the affect that he was having on me.
“You stood me up at the ball,” he says slowly, his voice was
like chocolate that was melting on a hot day.
“You never asked me,” I stutter out and now he looked just
as curious and confused as I was.
“Didn’t you get my letter?” He interrogates and I shake my
head. I hear him mumble about a stupid bird before taking a deep sigh and
staring at me, doing his smolder that made me weak in the knees. “Will you accompany me to the Yule Ball?”
“I don’t have a dress.”
“Then just dance with me,” before I could reply he had
already pulled me into him and was swaying us to that song he was humming.
For some reason, I have this headcanon that Teddy Lupin smokes a shit ton of weed at Hogwarts, (like I imagine Remus and Sirius did, maybe James). And Remus knows about it, he has since the beginning (about 5th year), and he just kinda shrugs his shoulders and says, “It’s not like I can say anything, we did too when we were in school.” and Tonks is surprisingly chill about it.
Team Sirius all the way man. His family was horrible, his bestfriend, the only real family he’s ever known, and his bestfriend’s wife were brutally murdered and he felt that he was partly to blame for trusting Peter, one of his closest friends, he was thrown into Azkaban without a trial, everyone hated him and thought he was a murderer. And even when he did escape and became part of the order, he felt useless because he could not do anything for the order due to the fact that he was still a wanted criminal. He was alone in Azkaban for 13 years, with the dementors for company. Only to end up back in the house he wanted to forget. Shoutout to Sirius Black for being awesome. Shoutout to Sirius Black for being a great godfather to Harry. Shoutout to Sirius Black for being Sirius Black.
I don’t know why, but I felt the need share my perfect Harry Potter universe.
-Drarry. -Blaize, Pansy, and Theo are friends with all of Harry’s friends so they’re all one big group. -Lilly x Severus where Lilly lives because James died for her. -Severus steps up to be Harry’s dad and has some level of respect and gratitude for James because Harry wouldn’t be without him. -Remus x Sirius where they have Teddy using Tonks as a surrogate (with Harry still as Teddy’s godfather). -Dobby and Hedwig are still alive. -Narcissa is a part of Draco and Harry’s lives. -Dudley and Harry have reconciled and now have a good relationship (and Petunia has pulled her head out of her ass and is working on building a relationship with Harry; I don’t particularly care about Vernon). -As they get older Draco and Harry have the kids they would have had, using Ginny and Astoria as surrogates for them. -Dean x Seamus -Nevil x Luna -Mad-Eye is still alive. -Shacklebolt as Minister.
