after james and lily started dating, lily once put sirius’s hair into a braid and every since he followed her around going “Liiiiilyyyy, do my haaaaiiiiir.” finally she teaches him how to do it himself, and they look up more complicated styles and he puts red and gold ribbons in it for house pride, especially before he goes home for the holidays
for years he’d every once in a while show up to things in kilts and james would tease him despite how many times sirius kept telling him that it wasn’t a skirt. then one day he shows up to class in a skirt he borrowed from hestia jones and james is like “so i guess you’re gonna tell me its not a skirt, right?” and sirius is just like “no its a skirt.”
remus comes to class late with lipstick on the corner of his mouth so everyone’s like omg who’s the girl?? but then sirius walks in after him with red lipstick
