Harry Potter MotW #90

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a  meme hosted by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and Me @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Best Sirius Moment

Asking me to pick just ONE best Sirius Black moment is an impossible request. Every.Single.Scene. that he's in could qualify as a best scene ever to me. I mean, let's look at some of of the highlights:

Sirius escapes Azkaban. The prison that no one, in the history of life, has ever managed to escape.  If that's not a legendary moment right there, I don't know what is. Amazing!

Sirius being there for Harry after the TriWizard Tournament.  Oh how I wish all of Sirius' scenes from GoF would have made it to the film. The fact that he was in hiding, living off of scraps and still went to check on Harry throughout the tournament warms my heart!

Saving Harry at the Ministry. Despite Harry's poor judgement call there, Sirius never hesitated to come out of hiding and rescue his godson. Be honest, we would have done the same if we saw Sirius being tortured by Voldemort. Regardless, Sirius would have moved heaven and earth for Harry...

As you can see, it seems that most of my favorite Sirius moments involve him and Harry.  The two of them together as a family get me right in the feels like nothing else could.  I guess it should come as no surprise that my favorite Sirius moment is:

When Sirius asks Harry to live with him.

Why oh why couldn't this dream come to pass.  I often like to imagine what their lives would have been like, living together as a family. Sirius laughing at all the trouble Harry got up to. Sneaking in to see Harry play Quidditch as Snuffles. And Harry's Summer vacations would have been infinitely better.  They could have had a garden, and a nice big yard, so Padfoot could stretch his legs. They could have even taken up playing Quidditch together, and had Christmases and birthdays to celebrate together...♥ Sigh. In that moment^^ when we all believed it could be possible for the two of them to be a family. That's one of my favorite parts of the series.


  1. I think his sacrifice was his best scene - and also the most tragic one. Just the fact that he comes without hesitation is beautiful.

  2. Oh I love Sirius! It was hard for me to pick a favorite moment too. I love the scene where he asks Harry to live with him! It's great. :) All of the scenes you've mentioned are wonderful as well!

  3. Oh Sirius. I loved this man and just totally died when know. I love the theme for this week! We shall honor Siris....TOGETHA! ;) My favorite moments would have to be when we first meet him and Harry has the a legit conversation with him. Then there is the part where he asks Harry to move in. Always will love that part.

  4. He is my favorite werewolf. If Rowling decides to write an adult PNR series, I hope it stars Sirius Black! Like his romantic adventures during his prime lol

  5. YES to all of these and basically every scene Sirius was in! He will always be my favorite HP character for his bravery, his loyalty, and his love for Harry. ❤

  6. There really is a lot of hope in that moment. Hope for that future that we all imagined for a brief bit after Sirius asked Harry to move in. It looked really beautiful and like a dream come true for him. Absolutely great pick :D

  7. I just made a really sad face and got really sad. :( :( :( :( I seriously mourned for a week. a solid week of moping around the house and thinking UNTIL the very end of the 7th book that no he's not REALLY dead. :(
