So the patronus isn’t straight up taught in Hogwarts, as a wise professor once said, it’s a ‘highly advanced spell, well beyond O.W.L level’
But you know, this is the marauders, the rebellious little nerds that we all know and love.
So James got hold of a book from the library one day about how to do the patronus and it seemed very cool. Not the whole fighting dementors part, but the distant and simple communication? priceless for a marauder.
And so they all stayed up one night trying to learn how to do it.
Sirius was actually the first to successfully do the spell. He had spent the last hour lavishly flinging his wand in the air shouting ‘Expecto Patronum!’ to no avail. Them Remus told him he should try to think of a happier memory.
He thought of the first time he had called Euphemia Potter ‘mum’. It had been an accident and had really just slipped out. He had been so embarrassed. But none of the Potter’s seemed to have noticed. A few moments later James had turned over to Sirius and said.’Could you pass your brother the salt then?’
And Sirius had never felt more part of a family in his life.
He was so engrossed in the memory he didn’t even notice the frantic black dog shoot out to his wand and knock Peter onto his backside.
Peter was next, he was thinking of the moment when some of the Slytherins had been bullying him earlier one day in first year and he had been crying down by the lake all afternoon, only to have Remus come up and sit behind him, rubbing his back and comforting him. Then Sirius and James had pushed the Slytherins into the Black lake right in front of him. How they had laughed. Real friends.
The small rat that scurried out of Peter’s wand that night was the first and last one Peter could ever produce. This was 6th year and soon the war became to much for the young boy.
Standing next to a struggling James, Remus was viciously whispering and flicking his wrists over and over again. ‘Expecto Patronum. Expecto Patronum. Expecto f’fucks sake. This is hopeless.’
‘You can do it Moony.’ Sirius smiled.
Remus thought about the first time he had kissed the stupid black haired Gryffindor in front of him. Sirius had been stealing something out of one of the cupboards along the school corridors when Remus had caught him on prefect rounds.
Looking back on it Remus couldn’t help but laugh at how unsubtle Sirius had been about the whole thing. ‘Oh, we seem to have bumped into each other Moons’ ‘What a coincidence.’ Remus of course had just assumed Sirius was trying to tease him into giving him detention, something Remus would never do, and had ended up getting pretty annoyed and flustered about being this close to Sirius in a small space and omg he could feel the heat of his skin and ah this was too much and he couldn’t stop talking.
Until Sirius closed that little gap between them to shut him up.
And Remus had never been happier. And he had never looked back.
And then a large animal came running out of the end of his wand, and Remus thought to himself.
‘It’s a dog! Sirius and I have the same Patronus!’
Only Remus’ was much bigger than Sirius’ dog… and it’s tail was bushier.. and did it just howl?
No. This wasn’t fair. Not this. That wasn’t how this was supposed t be. It was meant to be a happy memory. This wasn’t fair, after all this time, the one thing he thought he could share with his boyfriend.. and this was what he gets… another reminder about how imperfect and unworthy and unwanted…
And then there was Sirius standing next to him, sliding his arm around his back and kissing him gently on the cheek.
‘I love it.’ He whispered.
‘ ‘s not fair.’ Remus mumbled.
‘Remus look.’ Sirius replied. ‘it’s not that. It’s a wolf. A normal wolf. A loyal and pack having, friendly wolf.’
And Sirius was grinning.
But Remus just shrugged.
James was having the most trouble of them all.
Something was wrong, he just couldn’t seem to do it. He kept thinking of happy memories, first time he rode a broom, first time Sirius came to stay, first time he transformed into a stag.
And still nothing.
Tiny wisps of silver.
And then nothing.
‘It’s fine James, we already know what it’s going to be.’
‘I know,’ James replied through gritted teeth. ‘I just want to see it.’
And he was so fustrated.
And making a crap load of noise about it too.
So much noise in fact, that he started to wake the other residents of the Gryffindor tower up from their slumber.
And so a very grumpy and tired Lily Evans came storming down the staircase.
‘What in Merlin’s name are you twats doing now!’
‘Ah Evans.’ Sirius grinned. ‘care to join us?’
‘It’s three in the fucking morning Black! I’m supposed to be sleeping, except someone has been screaming for the past half hour about how hard this is and he trying but it’s not working, and I can’t tell if James is finally losing his virginity or doing his homework for once, but what I do know is that it’s stopping me from being able to enjoy the few hours of the day that I don’t have to be around you lot.’
A rather deeply embarrassed James pushed past a bent-over-with-laughter Sirius.
‘Actually Lily,’ he said, trying to act suave and like he hand’t just heard the last bit. ‘We are trying to do the patronus charm.’
This had peaked Lily’s interest, and although she knew better, she asked. ‘Really? The patronus charm? Wow. A proper one?’
‘Yepp.’ peter chimed in. ‘And we’ve all been able to do it, except for James.’
Lily cocked her eyebrow.
‘Oh.’ She smiled. ‘Let me try then.’
James, not wanting to be shown up any more by the fiery red head who was hopelessly in love with, quickly butted in. ‘No no. I mean, you can try.. but its really hard and took everyone ages to master and you’ll be up all night trying and-’
‘Potter.’ She replied sternly.
It only took her three attempts.
And there it was.
A beautiful silver shimmering doe burst through the tip of her wand and gracefully ran across the common room, galloping past it occupants before turning and vanishing as Lily dropped her arm. She grinned.
‘See? Not so hard then.’
James just stared. Open mouthed. Like the rest of the marauders. Dumb-founded in total and complete shock, until Lily just gave up on them and went back off to bed.
James didn’t have any trouble producing a Patronus after that.
Sirius x Reader for Anon!!! My first imagine in months, enjoy! 💕
Request: Can you write a Sirius x reader
where she always comforts everyone in her animagus form (cat) and only the
marauders know it’s her, and once she’s sad and Sirius cuddles w her as Padfoot?
I really like this idea, hope you do as well :)
The night had taken its toll, and
Y/N was prepared for the worst as she waited anxiously for the four marauders
to return. She sat upright and still,
her hind legs tucked into her soft fur, with her big yellow eyes fixed on the
portrait hole. Her tail skirted
side-to-side with anticipation when, at last, four boys stumbled through.
she thought with relief as she got to her feet and padded over to them
quizzically. Remus leaned on Sirius and
James for support, his knees weak, but as Y/N’s keen eyes scanned him over, she
noted he didn’t look all too bad this time, save for a few deep scratches along
“Good evening, Y/N,” James smiled,
his eyes tired.
“Nothing too bad tonight, love,”
Sirius cooed to the small tabby, patting her delicately on the head between her
attentive ears. She shook him off and
mewed at Remus, rubbing against his leg.
The exhausted boy had a hint of a smile.
“Thanks for being here, Y/N.”
As the boys helped Remus upstairs,
Y/N pranced eagerly after them, settling onto Remus’s bed where they lowered
him next to her. A warm, purring ball of
orange fur, Y/N situated herself in Remus’s lap. She nudged her head into his chest, seeking
to comfort the boy after his monthly ordeal.
Remus was thankful for the
distraction of her soft fur as Sirius dragged a wet rag across his cuts. He winced and gripped Y/N’s fur as she
nuzzled into him, purring and mewling softly to shift his focus away from the
Once his wounds were cleaned and
properly dressed, Remus let out a low, long sigh and leaned back into his
pillows. Y/N watched him with curious
“He’s alright, Y/N, don’t worry,”
Sirius smiled and reached to smooth his hand over her ears once more. This time, Y/N leaned and nudged into his touch. Her little heart fluttered.
Remus had fallen fast asleep.
“Thank you for being here for him,
Y/N,” James whispered, covering the sleeping boy with his blanket. “I think it really comforts him…you’re like
one of those therapy pets.”
He chuckled and Y/N nodded her head
once in understanding. She was eager at
the opportunity to help ease her good friend’s pain. She’d do so for any of these boys in a
As Sirius lay in bed, he bit down
on his lip and groaned softly. Y/N’s
ears perked up and she immediately jumped up next to him, searching with her
round eyes and sensitive nose for any injury.
She nudged his side and looked up at him sternly.
“It’s nothing, don’t worry,” he
brushed off, scratching behind her ear.
Y/N hissed softly and nipped at his hand, pawing at the material of his
shirt stubbornly. Sirius sighed and
lifted his shirt to reveal quite an angry bite mark. Y/N nearly glared at the wounded boy.
“What? Don’t give me that look,” he rolled his eyes,
his cheeks flushed slightly. “I can take
care of it m’self.”
Y/N tutted and inspected his
wound. Without hesitation, she stuck her
tongue out and began running it over the bite.
“Oi! What’s that going to-?” before his eyes, his
wound was disappearing with every stroke of the tabby’s tongue. He blinked and soon enough, the wound was
nothing more than a memory. Y/N sat on
her hind legs triumphantly.
“…I guess it comes in handy that
you paid attention during the unit about healing,” he chuckled and Y/N’s tail
swayed side-to-side with pride.
“Thank you, Y/N,” he murmured with
a small, signature smirk as he playfully twirled her tail around in his
hand. She nipped at his hand in mock
annoyance, but had she not been in her animagus form, Y/N would have been
“You can stay here y’know,” Sirius
said after settling under the covers.
“Take a little cat nap.”
He smirked at Y/N, who practically
rolled her eyes. Despite the fact that
he was her good friend, Y/N’s heart hammered in her chest with the knowledge
that Sirius Black wanted her to stay the night.
Unsurely, she looked around for a suitable place to curl up.
Sirius wiggled his foot under the
covers, indicating a cozy spot, and Y/N’s pupils instinctively constricted as
she struck out with her paw and pounced on his foot.
Sirius barked out a laugh.
“Animal instincts kicking in,
eh?” Y/N released his foot and looked
away, embarrassed. “Come on up here,
Y/N, I won’t bite if you won’t.”
Sirius patted a spot on the bed
beside him, and Y/N’s ears perked with hope.
She carefully stepped next to him and sunk into the softness of his
comforter, letting out a great big yawn.
Sirius chuckled and scratched between her ears. Y/N sighed and nuzzled into the feeling,
letting her wary feelings subside as the two drifted into sleep.
Y/N woke to the sound of soft
snores against her ear. She smiled to
herself let out a long, luxuriously yawn, stretching her hands out. Wait…
Hands? Her eyes snapped open to look at her
perfectly human fingers stretched out in front of her. A brief wave of horror washed over her as she
realized she had transfigured from her animagus in her sleep.
Sirius’s strong arms were wrapped
around her midsection, his body irresistibly warm against hers.
he’s in for a fright when he wakes, she worried silently. Sirius stirred and pulled her closer
“Mornin’ love,” he mumbled against
her ear, pressing a gentle kiss to her jaw.
She held her breath, waiting for the shock of his realization, which
“Good morning,” she spoke
hesitantly, humanly, waiting for him to throw her out. Sirius only nuzzled her neck.
“M’glad you changed back, I missed
your pretty face,” he murmured, causing Y/N’s cheeks to flush bright pink. It was like a dream, her head was swimming
with his irresistible presence. She
relaxed a bit into his touch.
“Me too,” she whispered, sinking
into him at last, her worries quelled.
She could get used to this.
Classes passed that day in a blur,
as Y/N dreamily floated through each one.
She hadn’t expected one night spent in Sirius’s arms would affect her
quite like this. Nevertheless, Y/N
smiled and hummed as she walked through the corridors of the great castle and
outside towards the serenity of the lake.
She passed a number of students, some her friends who she distractedly
called greetings to, and some she knew through the boys’ countless stories.
Y/N nearly tripped over herself
when she caught sight of one particular girl, who stood gossiping with her
gaggle of friends. Her honey blonde hair
hung in perfect ringlets down her back, and her curves dipped like those of an
hourglass. She was beautiful…and to
Y/N’s dismay, she recognized her as one of Sirius’s one-night stands.
Y/N’s heart dropped at this stark
reminder: the reminder that Sirius was a player, that he could never truly fall
for her, that she wasn’t good enough, and that she was kidding herself. Her smile and jolly humming ceased as she
continued towards the lake and sunk down against a tree.
would he ever go for you? He wouldn’t even commit himself tothat girl back there, and she’s three times
as pretty as you are.
Her eyes stung with tears, and she
picked at the grass anxiously.
only your friend anyways, why do you care?
I love him. And he doesn’t love you.
The weight of the realization
crashed over her, and she let out a quiet sob.
She trembled as wave after wave of anguish crashed over her, her tears
falling heavy with unrequited love into her lap.
A small whine startled her, as her
red eyes snapped to the fluffy black dog seated only a few feet from her. She quickly wiped her eyes and sat up
“Oh, hi Padfoot,” she bit her lip
and tried to smile. Padfoot cocked his
head, his eyes boring into her as if asking what was wrong. Y/N breathed in shakily.
“I’m fine, Padfoot, really….it’s
nothing,” she sniffled, not helping her case.
Padfoot nearly glared and stepped closer to her, nudging her cheek with
his wet nose. She couldn’t help but
smile softly. Somehow, her grief was
disappearing by the minute.
“I’m okay…listen,” she took a deep
breath. Talking to Sirius as Padfoot
proved somehow much easier. “I don’t
know if you know, or even care for that matter…”
Padfoot watched her attentively,
his ears perked, as he laid his head in her lap. She stroked his fur absentmindedly.
“But I….I like you, Sirius.” His
ears perked and he seemed to smile. His
“I’m sure you don’t like me,
Padfoot barked and sprang to his
feet, shaking his head from side to side fervently and huffing, before giving
her cheek an affectionate lick. Y/N’s
heart skipped a beat as she looked in his big grey eyes, and all at once she
knew he felt the same.
“Really?” she whispered, breathless. Padfoot bobbed his head once in agreement,
and flashed his teeth in a goofy, canine smile.
Y/N matched his goofy smile and was
positively elated. She threw her arms
around the giant black dog, burying her face in his neck. In a matter of seconds, she felt a pair of
strong arms wrap around her, pulling her tight to Sirius’s chest. Y/N whispered cheekily:
“I’m glad you changed back…I missed
your pretty face.”
Sirius chuckled and lifted her from
the ground, finally pressing his lips to hers in sweet, silent triumph.
When the hard rain and the thunder rumbled into a magnificent chaos in the night sky, Disappparating was simply not an option. It was a huge mistake to leave the house especially for (Y/n). She had not yet learned how to Disapparate properly and even worse, she was stuck in Diagon Alley. Everyone had ran for cover as soon as the rain poured heavily and (Y/n) quickly stayed at Madam Malkin’s when she heard someone call her name.
“(Y/n)?” Regulus said, walking towards her with a smile. “How nice to see you here.”
“Regulus!” She exclaimed, clearly surprised as well to find her housemate in the shop. She came up to him with a long embrace before pulling back. “The weather’s crazy, isn’t it? A storm right in the middle of summer.”
“Yeah, it’s quite strange,” he agreed. “How are you?”
“Fine as usual. What’re you buying, by the way?” (Y/n) asked, peeking curiously at the coat he carried in his arm.
“Oh, I didn’t buy anything. This is my brother’s,” he said, showing the black coat with several holes. “He came to visit today since our parents aren’t home. I’m just getting it fixed for him.”
“That’s so sweet of you!” (Y/n) smiled, making Regulus blush.
“I guess so. We may hate each other but we’re still brothers,” he chuckled, rubbing his neck, a habit both Black brothers had when they wanted to ask something nervously. “Hey, listen, do you know how to get back home by yourself?”
“I’m still figuring it out. The rain doesn’t look like it’s stopping,” (Y/n) replied, looking up at the ceiling where she can hear the hard pitter patters of the rain.
“Well, I was wondering if you wanted to stay at my house for the night. It’s quite late and I know you live very far but my house is near by. We can take some Floo powder instead so we won’t have to get wet.”
“Are you sure, Regulus? I-I don’t want to be a bother or anything…”
“It’s fine! I’m sure my brother won’t mind,” he reassured, “but if you don’t want, that’s fine too. I completely understand if you don’t want to come with me–”
“Regulus,” she comforted, “Thank you.”
She held his hand and rested her head on his shoulder as he lines up in front of the counter with a smile on his face.
Green flames erupted from the ashes of the fireplace in Grimmauld Place and out came (Y/n) first, shortly followed by Regulus. The dining room was dark and empty except their house elf who was carrying a silver tray.
“Welcome home, Master Regulus,” he greeted, “Kreacher sees his master brought company. How nice.”
“Oh, Kreacher, this is (Y/n). She’s staying her until the storm stops,” Regulus said, shaking off his coat and hanging it on the chair before taking a seat.
“Would the young miss like some tea?” Kreacher offered, showing her his silver tray full of teacups and teabags. “The bloodtraitor hates anything Kreacher gives. Kreacher thinks he should not eat anymore. Filthy bloodtraitor–”
“Just chamomile for me, thank you,” (Y/n) said, not wanting to hear what else he has to say about Sirius who just came down from the stairs.
“Regulus, is that you?” He called from behind the door before entering the dining room, his eyes immediately setting on (Y/n).
“Didn’t know your girlfriend will be here,” Sirius smirked as he leaned against the door frame. He was incoming his seventh year already and (Y/n) felt her heart race.
“She’s not my girlfriend, Sirius. She’s my…friend,” Regulus said the last part softly.
“I’m (Y/n). I’m just staying here for the night. I promise I won’t try to be a bother–”
“Hey, no worries. I don’t mind a little company,” Sirius said, “Regulus, why don’t you show her to our guest room? I’m sure she’s exhausted.”
(Y/n) have known about Sirius and the troubles he would cause back in Hogwarts but she had never expected him to be very welcoming especially to someone who was a Slytherin like his whole family. She imagined he would be more cold and maybe even worse but she was happy to know that he was polite and kind.
The two brothers led her to their guest room which had a large, four poster bed with a chandelier hanging on top. It was nice and clean and obviously, painted in gray and green. Regulus walked in to make sure it was comfortable enough for her when he heard the thunder rumble outside.
“The rain’s not stopping but I hope you’ll be able to get some rest. I’m assuming you’ve had dinner already?”
“Yeah,” (Y/n) answered before walking towards him. “Thank you for letting me stay. If it weren’t for you, I’d still be soaking wet in Diagon Alley.”
“You’re welcome,” he whispered shyly, feeling his cheeks redden once more. “If you need anything, I’ll be down the hall.”
“Thank you. Good night, Regulus.”
“Good night, (Y/n).”
The door creaked softly as the brother entered the room. He kept his footsteps light while his eyes watched (Y/n)’s chest rise up and down, her hand holding tight onto the pillow as she dreamed. Her neck was completely exposed but as he approached her closer, he saw that she was only dressed in her lace underwear.
Sirius felt himself harden at the sight, not being able to contain the temptation any longer. He crawled slowly and gently on top of her. He trailed his lips from her collarbone up to her throat until he reached her chin. She really looked delectable. She moaned at the feeling, the sound driving him insane as he kissed her neck.
He pulled away at the mention of his name, checking if she was awake. Her eyelids slowly opened as he watched her carefully but she did not seem surprised. She smiled and slipped her fingers through his thick, dark locks.
“Why’d you stop, darlin’?”
Sirius immediately dove in to taste her lips. He kissed her rapaciously, his tongue begging for entrance, needing to feel the sensation of her tongue playing with his. She allowed him to slip inside while grinding against the tent that had formed in his trousers. It made him moan and even want her more. Throwing his shirt aside, he licked his lip and stripped her off her undergarments before proceeding to remove his pants. His cock was already aching from the tight confines of his jeans and the dark spot on his boxers was enough evidence to show her how much he wanted her. He licked her neck up and down before he bit her earlobe softly, his hand trailing down to her breasts. He pinched her nipple between his fingers and as she let out a moan, he began to massage her.
“ ‘Been wanting this now, haven’t you?” He teased, sucking onto the spot right below her ear. He lowered his hand further, his palm feeling every inch of her skin as he guided his fingers to her entrance where he felt her already soaking wet.
He teased her lips by rubbing his finger up and down and barely slipping in the tip of his finger. The combination of his kisses on her neck and his teasing made her almost control. Her hips bucked at his hand, making him chuckle.
“Please, Sirius. N-Need you…”
“Hm, maybe not yet, love.” He said, pulling back his fingers and putting them into his mouth while she watched him. As much as he wanted to tease her, he himself also wanted to taste her more and so he stretched her legs wide open. Seeing her dripping for him made him growl hungrily. He kissed her inner thighs softly before dragging his tongue on her clit and slowly slipping into two of his fingers inside.
“Oh God…” She let out, holding onto his hair as an effort to get him closer. Sirius immediately got her message, moving his fingers in and out rapidly, making her clench tight. He alternated between moving his fingers inside and sticking his tongue in, both giving her the pleasure she so desired. As her climax neared, Sirius pulled out his fingers and concentrated on giving her release with his tongue.
Her hands gripped onto his hair, allowing him to moan into her and sending vibrations. He removed his boxers while keeping his mouth on her entrance and with a buck of her hips and a loud moan, she came on his tongue.
He lapped onto her juices both inside and out. He wanted to make sure he tasted every drop of her essence before he pulled away. She was breathing heavily as she watched him smirk and hover above her.
“How was it?”
“Good…good…” She breathed but Sirius was not yet finish.
He teased the head of his cock up and down her entrance, slicking her with her own juices, his precum, and his saliva. (Y/n) instinctively rose her hips to let him slide in but he held her hips to prevent her from moving.
“Tell me, love. Is this what you want?”
“Sirius, please…I want you.” She looked at him with pleading eyes, her arms around his neck. “I’m ready for you.”
He stopped teasing her for a while, his lips coming down onto hers. He kissed her lightly, in contrast to how he started earlier. He moved his lips against her in a sweet and delicate way as though she was fragile. She kissed him back lovingly before she felt him slightly push in his cock to her wet entrance. He pulled back and pressed his sweaty forehead against hers, eyes on each other. She nodded at him before he slid all the way into her tight core where she welcomed him. He bottomed out and started to move, stretching her for his thick length.
Gentle and slow was his pace as he whispered praises to her ear, reminding her how good she made him feel and how tight she was becoming. She was like a euphoric pill and his own, personal nirvana. The sounds she made as he continued to push in and out of her were angelic and flawless, though every once in a while, he would kiss her to keep her voice down so as to prevent her from waking up his brother.
“We don’t want any one to interrupt us now, do we?” He whispered, kissing her cheek.
Her climax was beginning to start once more as Sirius decided to speed up his thrusts. From slow and gentle, his pace became hard and fast. He was becoming erratic and rough since he was also starting to feel himself close. He kept his thrusts powerful, the head of his cock hitting her spot repeatedly.
“(Y/n), gonna cum! Gonna cum inside!”
“Come on, Sirius. I’m close too.”
The two moaned in chorus and with one last push, Sirius felt himself spill inside her. She came as soon as she felt the warm sensation flood her core, her juices mixing in with his. He kept himself inside her for a few minutes even as he softened, his face buried in her neck. He trailed kisses on her skin once more before he pulled out and laid back down beside her, the two panting heavily. After a few minutes of rest, they both fell asleep through the stormy night.
