Good Boy.

They always thought it was a “Padfoot” thing, Sirius’s aversion to chocolate. Remus couldn’t fathom it, James refused to explain, and Peter just figured it meant more for him…

Sirius sits on his bed, hastily wiping away the mixture of blood and mucus coming from his nose as his mother enters…

  • Walburga: I don't really mind Sirius being homosexual, I just don't like him dating men.
  • Regulus: You really haven't grasped the concept of this whole "gay thing" yet, have you, mother?
  • Walburga: Well, there must be homosexuals who date women...
  • Regulus: Yeah. They're called lesbians.

So I have this headcanon where whenever in the black house whenever Sirius laughed at serious moments or pulled pranks he was subjected to dark magic.

Naturally 7 year old Sirius was a rebel and initially it was just punishments like getting slapped, not being given food for a day or making him work but gradually the magic became darker.

At one point naïve Sirius Black says in front of his mother that he finds Gryffindor cool too and doesn’t get why they hate it and his punishment is crucio. Now they use crucio every time he does something minutely wrong and it leaves scars.

Walburga, being the manipulative bitch she is tells him “we would never hurt you. We do this for your welfare. Every parent does this for their child. You should be proud of those scars- they are a sign of your good upbringing and bravery.”

Can you imagine small, quirky and innocent 11 year old Sirius Black believing that those things are actually true?

Can you imagine 11 year old Sirius Black seeing Remus Lupin with all his scars and believing in his mother even more?

Can you imagine 11 year old Sirius Black reaching the Gryffindor Dormitory and removing his shirt and revealing all his scars and telling the others how brave he is?

Can you imagine James, Peter and Remus being horrified and telling Sirius that this is not actually how it works?

Can you imagine the look on Sirius Black’s face like he has been told his whole life was a lie?

Can you imagine Sirius Black crying when he receives a howler from his parents for being sorted in Gryffindor whereas Remus, Peter and James receive cakes and sweets and gifts and appreciation letters?

Can you imagine James potter asking his mother to send Sirius an appreciation letter and cakes?

Can you imagine Peter offering all his chocolates and gifts to Sirius and gifting him dung bombs?

Can you imagine Remus crawling into Sirius’s bed and calming him down?

Can you imagine the marauders being amazing and caring friends?

I'm not coming back home for the holidays. I'm going to the Potters. They offered. I'm sure I won't be missed. Give a kick to Kreacher for me. Without love whatsoever - Sirius.

Among the numerous illegal activities the Black family were involved in, this particular tradition took place when one came of age, and began the process of becoming an illegal animagus.

Of course, Sirius Black doesn’t wait seventeen years. He befriends a quiet boy whose eyes are too old and have too many secrets, and when these secrets are revealed, it is Sirius who knows what he needs to do. It is Sirius who steals heavy books from the section of the family library cloaked in dark spells. It is Sirius who recruits two other boys into his Black family tradition, only it isn’t just tradition anymore, and this is a different kind of family.

Walburga Black spoke with poison her whole life, and occasionally she killed with it too. A second cousin who put his hands where they were not granted. A house elf who heard secrets not meant for her ears. A healer who failed to save her daughter, barely two hours old and two years before she named her son after the brightest star in the sky. The bite of a black widow is not usually fatal to humans, but Walburga had always been a particularly venomous person, as her husband would often rage at her. She would rage back and remind him what spiders did to their mates once they had no use of them.

Orion Black wore the curved horns of a ram like a crown of armour, but they were useless when protecting his family name, the name he married his own blood for in order to keep pure. He preferred brute force over reason, which was effective when used to inflict fear and pain. Yet fear and pain were weak motivators when it came to blood traitor sons and crazed spouses. Orion was the leader of a flock scattered far across a field, and he did nothing when the wolves came howling.

Ten months after Regulus Black turns seventeen and ten months after the Dark Mark is branded in to his skin, he transforms into a sleek black cat in the middle of Grimmauld Place, surrounded by men in masks. Of course, Sirius hears about it eventually. He jokes how they always fought like cat and dog, but cannot bring himself to laugh. In many cultures, black cats are considered a bad omen, guardians of death. A year after he transforms, Regulus Black is drowned in a cave by an army of the dead, where he guards them forever.

Ok, so Harry Potter conspiracy theory time

Boggarts are produced by emotional trauma.

Ron and Harry hide in the wardrobe in the Hogwarts Staff Room after learning that the monster in the Chamber of Secrets is a Basilisk. They overhear McGonagall telling the staff that Ginny had been taken into the chamber by the heir, and the heir had written “Her skeleton will lie in the chamber forever” onto the wall. Ron’s younger sister was almost certainly dead. She had been taken into the Chamber of Secrets to be the prey of a giant snake that can kill people simply by looking at them. He’d seen her grow up beside him, watched her first steps, seen her ride her first broom, and now she was gone. And he learned about it standing in that cupboard. It must have been his worst fear come true. Then, the next year, a monster appears in that cupboard, feeding off the fears of everyone around it.

Then, the next boggart we see lives in the writing desk in Grimmauld Place. That place was full of traumatic moments, but I think that the boggart was created when Walburga Black realised that Regulus was missing, and probably dead. She had two sons; one she disowned for parting from his family’s beliefs. The other was her pride and joy, her youngest child, the only heir of the pureblood House of Black. And then, one day he goes out and he doesn’t come back. The house elf knows something but he can’t tell her. I think her grief and anger and fear over the realisation that not just one, but both her sons were now lost to her is what created that boggart. I think she sat at that desk and wrote letters to everyone she ever knew asking if they had seen her son, and that boggart was created when her worst fear came true. Her son was gone and he was not coming home.

Both were created when someone’s worst fear came true. Both were created when somebody lost a loved one. Because isn’t that everyone’s worst fear?

the sentence that saved Sirius’ life

“I suggest you stay out of this Euphemia, this is none of your business.”

“Oh, you made it my business when this boy showed up in my living room, barely breathing,” shot back Euphemia with all the rage that had been building up in her. Sirius was hiding behind her, careful not to catch Walburga’s piercing eyes.

“You are exaggerating,” she replied. “Nothing wrong with a little tough love.”

“I know an Unforgivable Curse when I see one Walburga,” she hissed just loud enough for people around them to hear, Walburga was turning purple with anger. “If I could, I would take Regulus from you, too, before he ends up dead from your tough love.”

“How dare you speak to me like that?”

“The same way you dare torture your children Walburga,” she said without blinking. “Now let go of my wrist and stay away from my sons.”

The Younger Son - Part 1

((OOC: Regulus played by @space-marauder, Sirius played by @asktheboywholived))

On this particular night, the Noble Black Family had many visitors in their home at Number 12 Grimmauld Place. The younger of the two sons wandered, talking with the guests of his home, smiling pleasantly, but never really saying a word. His mother caught sight of him from across the room and motioned for him to join her…

The woman rolls her eyes, disgusted with her elder son.

The boy hesitates, his brow creasing ever so slightly.

A moment passes and the boy still has not moved.

The boy makes his way up the stairs to the third floor, passing by the heads of dead house elves mounted on the wall, various family portraits that nod at him politely, numerous candelabra adorned with silver snakes baring their fangs, until finally he reaches the top of the stairs. On one side is his own room where the door is marked with a silver plate, reading “Regulus Arcturus Black.” He crosses to the door opposite. He knocks and waits.

“Sirius?” he calls. There is no reply. The boy reaches out, twists the door handle and enters the room.

Sirius: And did she tell you just how the imperious curse works…

A blaze of scarlet and gold from around Sirius’ neck catches his brother’s eye.

The elder brother shoves his way past the younger. Regulus can hear his steps descending the stairs. He closes his eyes. And waits. The sound of his brothers steps fade and a moment later, he hears what he expected to hear; the painfully shrill shrieks of his mother and the sharp cracks of guests disapparating.

to be continued…

Ok but a Keeping Up With The Kardashians style reality tv show about the Black family???? It would be called ‘Toujours Pur’ and it would be INCREDIBLE like Walburga would be draped across some expensive furniture sobbing and screaming about how her son is a disappointment and a traitor and about how she has done nothing but love him, and how could he do this to her???? does he not care about her nerves??? pausing occasionally to sip red wine with an anguished expression on her face, and then it would cut to Sirius talking to the camera like ‘All I said was that muggles aren’t all that bad’ 

Or they would all be in the dining room eating dinner and Walburga and Sirius are having a screaming row over the fact Sirius had snuck out to see James last night and Sirius would turn to Regulus and point at him dramatically and be like ‘This is all your fault, you just had to go running to mummy and tell on me didn’t you?’ and then it would cut to Regulus talking to the camera like ‘He bribed me to tell on him. Arguing with our mother is one of Sirius’s top three favourite pass times’ and just oh my goD this entire family would be tv gold pls give it to me
