I just realized something today. You know how we always rant about
the (old, too old) age of the actors playing Harry Potter’s parents in the movies?
Snape, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin were (more or less) 31 years old
when Harry started to attend Hogwarts.
in the movies, they were interpreted by a 55 year old (Alan
Rickman), a 43 year old (Gary Oldman) and a 38 year old (David
Thewlis) respectively. (These are the ages they were when
the first movie was released.)
you know Ben Barnes, who is often fancasted as teenage
Sirius Black? He is 35 years old, only a year younger than Sirius
was when he died. So Ben Barnes is in fact a good fancast for
old Sirius! And Andrew Garfield, who is often fancasted
as teenage Remus? 33. Yep. You get my point here.
Request: Your last imagine was great! I wanted to know if you could write an imagine set in the order of the phoenix were the reader is an auror and she was one the few people that believed sirius was innocent (most people thought it was because they dated in highschool) and when the kids go to the ministry instead sirius dying it’s bellatrix instead? And when sirius comes back that when he decides to marry her? (if possible with young sirius instead of gary oldman thank you!)
A/N: … *throws this out of the virtual grave and goes off to take a nap*
Sirius Black was many things: troublemaker, obnoxious, frustratingly immature, unwaveringly loyal to his friends, a cheater to his lovers. He was not a murderer.
Some could say you believed this because you dated him, dated him for a respectable amount of time (an uncharacteristic feat for Black). Granted you were kids, still in your sixth year at Hogwarts and emotionally floundering. And yet.. five months and three weeks were not a fling. And even now you looked back on the relationship with fondness, despite Sirius dumping you for a bustier Ravenclaw.
They lasted three weeks, by the way, the average life span of a relationship with the infamous Sirius.
…Some could say you were still a little bitter about it, not that you would give anyone the chance to…
But anyway, you mourned the lost potential for that relationship and moved on. You assumed that any connection you had to Sirius Black had been stuck in Hogwarts.
Meanwhile, life always seems to have other ideas than what we plan.
“Come now, you look like you’ve seen a murderer,” Sirius teased with a low rasp in his voice as he took another long swig of his drink.
‘‘Time’‘ Ehmm is it possible to not love this? This siriusly made me cry so many
times. The part where Sirius runs away from home, the part where Remus
talk about Lily and of course, when James and Lily look at each other
for the last time - KILLS ME. Not to mention the last part when there
are flashbacks and JUST LEAVE ME WITH MY TEARS.
‘‘You always make me smile’‘ Wolfstar. I DID NOT FIND THIS UNTIL TODAY BUT I FELL ABSOLUTELY HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH IT AND IT MAKES ME SMILE NOW.
‘’Take me to church’‘
This is about First Wizarding War, and I just love that they took young
David Thewlis, Gary Oldman and Timothy Spall in the video because it
just made everything go together so well.
