Do you know what pains me?

Sirius didn’t know that the Dursleys were abusive.

At the end of Prisoner of Azkaban, he automatically assumes that Harry would rather live with them than with him. In the Goblet of Fire, Harry writes to him about Dudley’s video games and diet habits but never explicitly mentions anything about being abused. Even when he gets to Grimmauld Place in the Order of the Phoenix, he expresses his anger at not receiving information and though we know that he was also emotionally exhausted from spending another summer at an abusive household, he never discloses it. In fact, seeing as how he protected Dudley, Sirius could just as well be under the impression that the two were very close.

And I hate this so much because Sirius Orion Black grew up in an abusive household and if he had known for a single second that his godson was facing the same thing that he had faced, he would have really blown up a street in an attempt to get to Privet Drive and rescue Harry.

And it also breaks my heart because you know that Harry knew this which meant that he was more worried about his godfather’s safety and freedom than he was his own health.

thank you so much! I’m glad I helped you find your missing piece :’)

and since it’s not the first time I get asked about their tattoos, I decided to answer this one publicly and with pictures. please note that I’m no tattoo designer though, haha.. anyway:

I really enjoy the idea of post-war draco getting to know muggle world that he used to hate blindly because of his upbringing and because of being isolated from it his entire life. exploring technology and muggle pop culture, wearing fancy muggle clothes - I love thinking that he would challenge himself to try all that. that’s why I also enjoy the idea of him getting a still muggle tattoo. it’s a dragon tattoo in a blackwork style (the reasoning behind this is simple: I just love blackwork tattoos a lot, I think they’re really aesthetically pleasing) on his right arm. it sort of supposed to mirror and oppose his dark mark: he got the dark mark as a symbol of loyalty to someone, which proved to be a wrong choice, so he gets a dragon that symbolizes his loyalty to himself (does this make sense. I suck at explanations).

also a bird tattoo on his neck for no other reason that I hc him as a person who loves birds (shoutout to half blood prince movie, ay).

now about the dark mark! I’ve seen a few different interpretations of what he might do to it after the war’s over and, seeing as I’m a sucker for angst, my favourite one is that he got it scarred either when he tried to get rid of it with some dangerous magic or due to self-harm.

(fun fact: not everyone knows that apparently inactive dark marks are not black, as often depicted, but red)

my second favourite is more positive, it’s the one where he accepts his mark as it is and tattoos something over/around it. for example, flowers

(not that I’m completely against the idea of him getting wizarding tattoos though, for example, I really love his moving tattoos in this fic)

now, harry. harry, on the other hand, must be fascinated with a concept of moving magical tattoos that react in a certain way when you touch them so I thought he’d definitely get one or two. the first one is a snitch that flutters across his body, and if you manage to “catch” it, the “I open at the close” words appear above it.

and right above his heart is a lily flower bud tattoo that blooms when touched. in memory of his mother, of course

(ft horcrux scar)

he’d probably get a muggle one as well. something like this, maybe? stag antlers, a black dog and a wolf since I totally see him as that kind of person who gets tattoos in honour of people who are/were dear to him

I’ve also seen a plenty of fanarts where they have more tattoos, like entire tattoo sleeves, for example, and the ones where their tattoos don’t have any deep meaning within them, and as a person who believes that tattoos don’t necessarily have to be deep and meaningful if they are beautiful, I quite enjoy those too actually

wow this was long and incoherent sorry I’ll. see myself out now haha
