The Sirius Black Memorial

In honor of a loyal member of the Order, here are various quotes to remember Harry Potter's godfather by.

"Sirius hurtled out of nowhere, rammed Dolohov with his shoulder, and sent him flying out of the way. The prophecy had again flown to the tips of Harry's fingers but he had managed to cling to it. Now Sirius and Dolohov were dueling, their wands flashing like swords, sparks flying from their wand tips --

"Dolohov drew back his wand to make the same slashing movement he had used on Harry and Hermione. Springing up, Harry yelled 'Petrificus Totalus!' Once again, Dolohov's arms and legs snapped together and he keeled over backward, landing with a crash on his back.

"'Nice one!' shouted Sirius, forcing Harry's head down as a pair of Stunning Spells flew toward them. 'Now I want you to get out of --'

"They both ducked again. A jet of green light had narrowly missed Sirius; across the room Harry saw Tonks fall from halfway up the stone steps, her limp form toppling from stone seat to stone seat, and Bellatrix, triumphant, running back toward the fray."

~ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"For a long time, neither of them spoke. Somewhere far beyond the office walls, Harry could hear the sound of voices, students heading down to the Great Hall for an early breakfast, perhaps. It seemed impossible that there could be people in the world who still desired food, who laughed, who neither knew nor cared that Sirius Black was gone forever. Sirius seemed a million miles away already, even if a part of Harry still believed that if he had only pulled back that veil, he would have found Sirius looking back at him, greeting him, perhaps, with a laugh like a bark...."

~ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"And yet sitting here on the edge of the lake, with the terrible weight of grief dragging at him, with the loss of Sirius so raw and fresh inside, he could not muster any great sense of fear. It was sunny and the grounds around him were full of laughing people, and even though he felt distant as from them as though he belonged to a different race, it was still very hard to believe as he sat here that his life must include, or end in, murder....

"He sat there for a long time, gazing out at the water, trying not to think about his godfather or to remember that it was directly across from here, on the opposite bank, that Sirius had collapsed trying to fend off a hundred dementors....

"The sun had fallen before he realized that he was cold. He got up and returned to the castle, wiping his face on his sleeve as he went."
